This weeks excellent person- Christopher Mintz-Plasse

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, I would like to introduce to you a handsome man who is hilarious, a totally kick-ass actor and musician. I am talking about the rascally rapscallion known as Christopher Mintz-Plasse!!

1Anyone who has ever seen a movie with Chris would know what a talented actor he is. All you have to do is check out his IMBD page to see the long list of fantastic movies that he has been in.

He started out his acting career towards the end of his High School life in a hilarious Seth Rogen movie called ‘Superbad’. Chris played a high school student called Fogell (or better known as McLovin) and starred alongside the talented cast including Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Seth Rogen, Bill Hader and Emma Stone in this comedy about graduating High School.


Christopher Mintz-Plasse also played the notorious Chris D’Amico (or better known by his superhero name Red Mist or his villain name The Motherfucker) in the movies Kick Ass and Kick Ass 2 that were based on the graphic by Mark Millar. This action packed movie also has a stellar cast including Chloë Grace Moretz, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Nicholas Cage and John Leguizamo.

You can also see Chris strut his fantastic stuff as Augie Farcques in Role Models, Ed in Fright Night and voice Alvin in ParaNorman – just to name a few.

What most people might not know about this multi-talented man, is that he is also a drummer/ singer in the bands The Young Rapscallions and Bear on Fire.

You can check out The Young Rapscallions albums ‘everything vibrates’ and ‘it is what it is- EP’ on iTunes

You can also check out Bear on Fire’s music on SoundCloud.

I am a huge fan of McLovin, oh sorry, I mean Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Not only is he extremely talented and easy on the eyes, he is also a supergood guy. (pun intended)

This is why 3am is proud to present Christopher Mintz-Plasse with the 21 Fart Gun salute


I will leave you to listen to Chris totally rocking the lead vocals on Bear on Fire’s cover of I’m on Fire by Bruce Springsteen

If you dig Chris and his hip and happening ways, I suggest you chicka chicka check out his twitter and instagram.

Greetings fellow earthlings!

I am an active enthusiast of social media. I love to follow my favourite actors, singers, writers, comedians, (the list goes on and on, you get the idea) on twitter and instagram. It fills me with such a happy buzz to see that there are such inspiring people in this world.

This buzz is the reason that I have decided to have one post a week that is dedicated to a hip and happening person (or group) of my choosing who I have deemed exceptional and worthy of sharing their virtuosity with you.

I will share with you

  1. Who they are
  2. What they do and what makes them so groovy
  3. Why I think they are such tremendous people

I am also open to suggestions, if you know of some totally excellent people who do superb things and you think are deserving of a post dedicated just to them, just comment below!

I would just like to remind you all that 3am is a positive place. If you have a personal vendetta against someone that I write about, I encourage you to write all of your negativity down on a piece of paper and file it in the bin because nobody on here wants to hear pessimism here. If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

The Six Emotional Stages of Dropping your Phone

Imagine This. You think that your day just couldn’t get worse. You spilt coffee on your white shirt that morning, which caused you to be late for that extremely important meeting you had been preparing for all week. Your phone won’t stop buzzing. You would love to just leave your phone and all of your worries behind. f9da9b84407a313d4ab81fe0f3b6e1f4.jpg I am here to tell you that while it is tempting to get rid of your phone, I urge you to take the option of putting it in your sock draw. Don’t drop it or throw it in a pool. No matter how much it is annoying you, there is an off switch for a reason. A few days ago, I accidentally dropped my phone. gasp Gasping_b3cbe7_2595489 1318310487111 It is a terrible experience. When it happens, everything goes into slow motion. You can hear dramatic music start to play (even though your phone is broken and you have no other possible source of music). My imaginary audience was on the edge of their seats. 85b99b566197a0119cf814fe430a9081.jpg f9d093a9991eb7fde9945ceca610e576.jpg

All I wanted was an easy fix. I can assure you that at one point I googled how to cope with dropping your phone. Unfortunately nobody online was sympathetic to my pleas. That is why I decided to share the emotional stages that you go through when you drop your phone, to let you know that you aren’t alone.

1. Replay

I like to call this stage replay because you are forced to stand there for what feels like hours, replaying the scene over and over in your head, not wanting anything but a time machine. 175fce40a7eccdd0ab91db77f17a0f87.jpg

  1. Denial

Replay is closely followed by denial. “No. That didn’t just happen. No. I refuse to accept this.” You think to yourself while pacing the room, still replaying the scene in your head. 0fa3775cf27c716fd9ee0055d1b2f9c3 fcaeb2a3de010385b0072cf59a4b3b17.jpg 3. Panic

Stage three is full-blown panic. The scene finally settles in your mind and you realise what has just happened and the repercussions. In approximately 2.5 seconds you have been cut off from the rest of the world, forcing you to think “OMG. That did just happen… HELP”. You feel a need for your phone that is greater than the need for oxygen in your lungs. d561c37e6e9ba8c6099ae0417ea1b1df.jpg 78cba6597d627a2d14f5a229e9ac5043.jpg

  1. Cry

Once you have settled down, I recommend having a good cry. Let the emotions flow and just cry it out. It is scary being disconnected from the outside world. d5a1dcf32d5533b8912c86450aad2baa.jpg

  1. Anger

When your hands start to involuntarily clench into fists, you know what you have reached stage five, anger. It’s normal to experience this. It is the time when you will find yourself asking questions such as “Why did this happen to me?” When it comes to this stage I suggest taking a chill pill while you wait for the final stage. 66b6b8b0e105891f5b7930ec11b6c10e.jpg photo 4 6. Acceptance

As time goes by, it does get better. You learn to accept what has happened. This is generally the stage where you go out and find a solution. Perhaps go and find a shop that fixes phones or decide to treat yourself to a brand new phone. Just remember, everything happens for a reason. e497ed85ac9525c09e7b8474faf00f09.jpg

Phone related incidents happen all the time, even to the best of us…


The important thing to remember that it is going to be okay. You will get through this. Don’t forget, these kinds of accidents happen all the time. It could be worse… 53de04263fbe78bc3a7e7deafbba1e4b.jpg
