The thing that makes "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" so compelling is the apes, so Deco hit up the human actors who play the apes to find out how to access our own inner ape. (Insert simian grunts here.)

Two worlds collide when humans cross paths with apes in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes." Earth's population has been decimated by a virus, but apes are thriving, and the humans feel threatened.

Andy Serkis plays the head chimp, Caesar.

Andy Serkis: "Caesar inherited this enhanced intelligence drive which is pushing him forward, not only his intelligence, but he's evolving physically."

Jason Clarke was amazed at the technology that brought the apes to life.

Jason Clarke: "They're just little creative little Willy Wonkas, you know, coming up with this new stuff."

And head ape coach Terry Notary, aka Rocket, taught Deco how to access our own inner ape.

Terry Notary: "Figure out what makes us human, peel those layers away and get into this really deep, deep, centered self."

Terry Notary: "And then you have an energy, a certain sort of ape-like energy."

And don't forget to lower your voice.

Terry Notary: (making ape noises) "Open up and sort sort of use your diaphragm and open up and ..." (more ape noises)

Careful, though. You could start a war.

    When I first heard that the Crop Top was back in style, I walked straight into my bedroom, stood in front of the mirror, lifted my shirt, turned to the side and stuck my gut out as far as it would go.

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.

    When I walked out of the Hong Kong airport, the heat of the city slapped me so hard across the face, it was like a woman catching her cheating husband with a long-suspected mistress.

    Here in So-Flo, we like to hang out half naked, especially in the summer, which is why eating healthy is so important to keep that bod in shape. I know eating healthy can be so boring. I mean, I wanna look good and feel good, but I don't wanna give up taste. I just found a healthy new joint that's both delicious and has me seriously considering becoming a vegan.

    We're not Realtors, but we love a house that has luxury to spare. So when NFL star Asante Samuel invited Deco for a little tour, how could we say no?
