Top 5 great things for right now
Bullseye with Jesse Thorne
Does your taste in music and pop culture make you the laughing-stock of your community? Spend an hour every week with Jesse Thorn to learn about “the good stuff” that you may not have heard of. Interviews, recommendations and much more to get your brain on the right track. Formerly called ‘The Sound of Young America’ this podcast is on the cutting edge of emerging media. For fans of This American Life. Bullseye With Jesse Thorn
Grimes – Oblivion
I got in to Grimes a little late, but she’s playing Sled Island so I decided to give it a real go. I’m converted.
Digging these episodes on Netflix. Rest in peace Phil Hartman and your amazing beautiful wardrobe. Actually the whole series takes place in the 1990′s and it really shows in wardrobe and production. I was eating glue for most of that decade, so it’s fun seeing these dated jokes with fresh eyes.
I Hate Being Single
Probably my favourite web-series going right now. The story is pretty simple, Rob’s a loser who is newly single and his life sucks. Good? No, GREAT! For fans of the Apatow brand of ‘My Life Sucks’ self reflection and hilarity. It’s dry and slow, and it’s only 10 minutes an episode so WHY NOT? Watch it on Blip.TV
The Best Show on WFMU
For those of you who already know me fairly well, you’ll know I’m obsessed with this weekly radio show. Also available through podcast, the show takes the listener on a journey comprised of ‘Mirth, music and mayhem’. The host, who was once the executive producer of the hit cable series Monk, interviews alt-comedians, yells at callers, and gives his take on reality television, music, and much, much more. Not for the faint of heart. Check out any of the episodes in the archive, or listen live every Tuesday night 7-10 Mountain Standard Time, 9-12 Eastern Standard Time on http://wfmu.org
