My Own Mt. Rushmore
Mt. Rushmore is one of America’s most recognized national monuments, sporting the faces of 4 of our nation’s greatest presidents: Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, and Thomas Jefferson. If I were to reconstruct Mt. Rushmore with faces of my choosing, I would choose to put 4 of my favorite people in the whole world: Nicolas Cage, Ryan Seacrest, Ivan Doroschuk, and Alana “Honey Boo-Boo” Thompson.

He hosts the 12-year show American Idol, his own radio show called “On the Air With Ryan Seacrest”, and has even hosted several TV specials such as Gladiators 2000, and NBC Saturday Night at the Movies. He deserves perhaps the biggest spot on my Mt. Rushmore because of his skills as a producer, and as a talented host.

Born Men Without Hats is a Canadian New Wave group from Montreal, Quebec. Their music is characterized by the distinctive baritone voice of their lead singer Ivan Doroschuk as well as their elaborate use of synthesizers and electronic processing. They achieved their...
