There are certain people who are so fucking weird, you have to gasp in admiration. According to Gawker, Nicolas Cage, who is obviously madder than a box of frogs, describes his acting discipline as, "nouveau shamanic," which involves "putting on Afro-Caribbean paint" and "sewing bits of Egyptian artifacts that are thousands of years old into my costume and gathering some onyx or tourmaline or something that was meant to have vibrations." Fuck, next time I’m facing a dumb assed deadline, I’ll try that. Then in an interview with Moviefone, he said… “Winning Oscars isn't important to me, in fact, I think that if you go about making movies to win Oscars, you're really going about it the wrong way. I think that it's ... right now, what I'm excited about is trying to create a kind of a cultural understanding through my muse that is part of the zeitgeist that isn't motivated by vanity or magazine covers or awards. It's more, not countercultural, but counter-critical. I would like to find a way to embrace what Led Zeppelin did, in filmmaking." Fuck me… Bon mots, d'jour award, for sure!
See what I mean?
