    Hey Whatever Happened To Macaulay Culkin?

    Aside from having an abnormally difficult name to spell, Macaulay Culkin is best known for his role of Kevin McCallister in the John Hughes classic Home Alone. Child actors often fall off the map after they grow up, so I decided to investigate and see what Mr. Culkin has been up to since then.

    Shortly after his breakout success he reprised his role as the precocious trouble maker in the underrated masterpiece Home Alone 2. He acted in a couple of other reasonably successful movies in the 90's including Richie Rich, My Girl and The Good Son but then suddenly stopped, essentially retiring from acting at age 14.

    But he wasn't done stirring up headlines. In 1998 he shocked the world when he married actress Rachel Miner, both just the tender age of 18. Their love predictably didn't last and they seperated in 2000. After that he entered a five year old courtship with actress Mila Kunis which unfortunately also fizzled out.

    He ran into some legal trouble in 2004 when he was put under arrest in Oklahoma City after being found in possesion of marijuana, Alprazolam and Clonazepam. He was let off with a slap on the wrist and a fine. Ever since then he has been dodging rumors of drug abuse from the media, which wasn't helped when he was seen getting sick against the wall of the Chateau Marmont.

    But he was spotted out and about in New York City in August looking trim and healthy and decidedly NOT barfing on a wall, so maybe he's back on the right track. A a lifelong Culk-amaniac I sure hope so.

    Thanksgiving Side Dishes

    Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that can only mean one thing: side dishes. For too long, turkey has stolen the spotlight of the Thanksgiving meal, but it's so overrated. I mean, it's always too dry and you have to cut it with an electric knife. It's all about the side dishes. Allow me to run you through my favorites.

    Mashed Potatoes - When the pilgrims came to the new world they decided they had to seperate themselves from the tyranical potato preferances of the English. How do you improve upon potatoes though? Answer: mash them up and add a metric ton of butter to them. The pilgrms were onto something; mashed potatoes are basically edible silk, if silk slowly blocked your arteries with delicious, delious cholesterol.

    Sweet Potato Casserole - I'm from Minnesota, a land where casserole is king. Remember how I said I really liked mashed potatoes? Sweet potato casserole is kinda similar, but get this: it's got MARSHMALLOWS. I know what you're thinking, "Who was the mad genius who thought it ws acceptable to put a dessert ingredient in a side dish?" I don't know! But if I ever find out I want to give them a kiss on the forehead because it's exactly that kind of outside-the-box thinking that we need more of at the dinner table.

    NOT Cranberry Sauce - I hate cranberry sauce. It's fetid and disgusting and will never come within a mile of my plate. I mean look at it. Its refusal to even pretend to not be from a can is an affront to everything that Thanksgiving stands for and should be shunned from our tables. DO NOT eat cranberry sauce. It's one of the most un-American thing you can possibly do.

    Pumpkin Pie - Pumpkin Mother Fuckin Pie y'all! The coup d'├ętat of the meal. The seizure of power. The putsch of Thanksgiving. I'm just now realizing that thesaurus entries for coup d'├ętat don't really work here. That said, pumpking pie is the best. Who knew a mushed up gourd could be so delicous? You add a little (or enormous) dollop of whipped cream on there and you are good to go... puke in the bathroom because you ate so much.

    I already can't wait to stuff my face to capacity. What are some other good side dishes you guys are excited to eat? Watch My Damn Channel LIVE today for more Thanksgiving madness!

    Who Did It Better: Cryface

    Did you guys catch Saturday Night Live last weekend? Anne Hathaway hosted the show for the third time and during the Homeland parody sketch she did an impression of Claire Danes doing her patented cry face.

    Hmmmm... that looks pretty familar Anne. Where might I have seen that before? Oh that's right, Beth has been honing her Claire Danes cry face for months!

    Clearly I have a conflict of interest on the matter (my cousin was a PA on Get Smart) so I won't give my opinion on who did it better. But who do you guys think pulled the "Cryface" off with more panache?

    LIVE At The Ace

    Were you guys at the My Damn Channel LIVE event at The Ace Hotel last night? It was epic. Those of us that braved the disgusting sludge-rain weather outside were treated to an evening of comedy, sick jams and an assortment of alcoholic beverages. Here were my favorite parts of the show.

    1. We CRUSHED two world records, including the record for Most Whoopee Cushions Sat On In 30 Seconds Without Smiling Or Laughing which used to be held by College Humor's Jeff Rubin. Ball's in your court Jeff.

    2. Our very own Shannon Coffey regaled us with a tale of how she got duped into wearing Depends adult diapers by her Mom in high school. If I had a dollar for every time I accidentally wore a diaper let's just say I'd be sitting pretty ;)

    3. Dave Hill shredded his axe ALL. NIGHT. LONG.

    4. The bathroom at The Ace had a sink and Dyson Air Blade hand dryer inside of the stall. INSIDE THE STALL.

    5. Todd Barry riffed on the Brooklyn restaurant Flatbush Farm for about 15 minutes after he found out a girl in the front row was a waitress there. It was pretty hilarious and now I really want to grab dinner there. I hear the Duck Confit is to die for.

    Election Hangover

    Hey America, thanks for voting!

    No matter which candidate you were gunning for I'm sure we can all agree on one thing: we're happy the election is over. That and the fact that Donald Trump is an irrelevant knucklehead.

    Now we can all focus on the important issues like fixing the economy and making comedy videos... and water jetpacks!

    Frankenstorm!

    Meteorologists are predicting that Hurricane Sandy, which is heading up through the Bahamas at 105 miles per hour will combine with a cold front coming in from the West and create a potentially devastating phenomenon they've terrifyingly named Frankenstorm.

    Last year, when Hurricane Irene was about to hit the East Coast, Grace gave you some tips on how to survive the storm. I thought I would create my own list of things you'll need to do in order to survive the wrath of Frankenstorm.

    1. Trader Joe's Box of Wine - You might not be able to leave your apartment for the duration of the storm, so you're going to want to stock up on booze. This lovely box contains 4 BOTTLES OF WINE and only costs $10. They claim it keeps the wine fresh for up to 45 days, but something tells me it won't last that long.

    2. Television Show Box Set - You're going to have to entertain yourself during the storm, so you want to stock up on TV shows to watch. Me, I'm getting the complete box set of Gilmore Girls to keep me company. The only debris that's gonna be flying around my house will be the witty repartee between Rory and Lorelai!

    3. Candles - You need to be prepared for emergencies during hurricanes. Candles are essential in the event that you lose power. But why just get boring old regular candles? Why not spice up your power outage? That's why I'm getting a bunch of Yankee Candles for the storm. That way if I lose power, I'll not only be able to see but my entire house will be pleasantly scented like Peppermint Bark!

    That's it, that's all you need to get through Frankenstorm. Good luck and happy hurricane-ing!

    Hey Whatever Happened To Jesse Camp?

    Jesse Camp exploded into the public consciousness in 1998 when he won MTV's Wanna Be a VJ contest and started appearing on TRL, eventually even garnering his own show called Lunch With Jesse. The lovable waif was known for his freewheeling, positive attitude and outrageous attire that looked like a mix between Joey Ramone, Steven Tyler and a drag queen. What has been been doing since his heyday on MTV?

    Camp tried to parlay his newfound fame into a rock career by cutting an album under the name Jesse & The 8th Street Kidz. The effort was met with less than laudatory reviews from critics and currently holds the 339,190th spot on the Amazon sales charts.

    After his career as a rock star didn't pan out, Camp headed to Hollywood. He dabbled in acting and even had a walk-on role in the 2002 Britney Spears film Crossroads. After that he reportedly held down oddball jobs like being a clerk at a Feed & Supply company and a telemarketer for a liberal non-profit organization. In an interview with LA Weekly he says he's currently making movies with his sister in Los Angeles and said, "As long as you have a vision, that will create enough positive energy within you to keep going".

    Keep rocking, Jesse.

    Yours truly,
    Dean
