As a writer, I am a man of great intellectual depth and uncommon emotional complexity. 

Thus, when I need to settle the artistic tempest that rages within my heart (author's note: my heart is also artistic) I turn to one man, and one man only for my entertainment needs. 

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Nicholas a cowboy...who dances with robots...and this is supposed to sell a Japanese soda for some reason. 

I saw this over at, initially.  Heck of a website, by the way.  I stop over about once a day. 

Wow.  I didn't think it was possible for me to love Japan or Nicholas Cage any more than I already do, but then I just watched that video and my world has been shook to its foundation. 

Also, how much more famous do you guys think I need to get before I get cast in a Japanese commercial?  They don't even have to pay me.  As long as I get keep my shiny cowboy shirt, I would be totally happy. 

I was thinking about posting the highlight reel from "The Wicker Man" but that might have been too much Nic Cage crazy-power for one posting.  Once things settle down a bit, I'll be sure to get that to you. 

Here's a teaser: he dresses up in a bear costume and karate kicks an old Amish looking lady in the head.  Yes.  I know that sounds like something out of a fever dream, but I swear that this is a real thing.

for the best of nicholas cage, watch VAMPIRE'S KISS. perhaps the most underrated movie of all time. no, actually check that, it IS the most underrated move of all time.* wait, i'm not doing this thing justice, it's actually the best film ever produced in the 1980's about vampires.** ever.

*not neccessarily a true statement

Can't stand Nic Cage. What's has he done that's decent since Leaving Las Vegas?

Nic Cage is a sometimes good actor. And he nailed this part!

I loved him in Valley Girl. Especially the way his chest hair formed a sort of "V" in the beach scene.

You forgot the best part... after the bear suit and the Amish smack down, he gets to go to Burning Man.

This means that you don't have to be publishing your ezine one day before the "deadline" of when you've decided you'll be sending it out, and going into a great tizzy over the whole thing.
