Hot New Feature!

Do you work? Do you work as little as possible on Fridays? If so, my brand new Friday Quiz is just for you! Every Friday, I hope to present 20 questions based on music, film, television, or "random" pop culture facts. Your job is to guess as many correct answers as possible WITHOUT using the internet for help; the whole point is to see just how much of your mind has been wasted on retaining pop culture knowledge rather than basic skills for functioning in reality.

The answers will be found in the "Comments" section.

1. What is the name of Gwen Stefani's debut album?
2. Who was the heiress kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army in 1974?
3. Which actor has never been nominated for an Academy Award: John Turturro, Philip Seymour Hoffman, or Johnny Depp?

I only missed Puma, Human Cloning and Brazil. And was Runnin' Down A Dream "Alice In Wonderland" as well, because I know "Don't come Around Here No More" was. Yay quiz!

Oh my God. I think you're right. I was putting the wrong song and video together. "Running Down a Dream" was just a weird cartoon. Damn.
