On Will Ferrell To Receive 2011 Mark Twain Prize for Humor

While I adore Will Ferrell and think he's a genius, this prize really ought to go to someone who's an elder statesman of humor. Ferrell should definitely receive this prize some day, just not yet. Give it someone like Letterman, Albert Brooks, Bill Murray, James L. Brooks, Larry David, or Seinfeld. The #1 person who should get it is Woody Allen, but he's too controversial of a choice. Again, I love Ferrell, but his lifetime isn't over yet. This is for lifetime achievement.

On A Comprehensive Guide to Sitcom Soundtracks, Ranked by How Soon You Should Own Them

That Polaris album is almost too good. It's so much better than it should be, being a toss-off for a kid's show. However, every song is amazing. Not only a great soundtrack, but a great album in its own right. I'm so glad to see it getting some love. I've listened to that album at least 50 times. So good.

On Are You a Secret Hero?, by Michael Kupperman

@Aristeia Kupperman is a flat-out comedic genius. Tales Designed to Thrizzle is one of the funniest things I've ever read. If you don't laugh until you cry at every page, there's something wrong with you. Here's some samples: http://meathaus.com/wp-content/uploads/kupperman-comics.jpg http://www.tcj.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Snake-N-Bacon-1.jpg http://hoodedutilitarian.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/kuppergum.jpg
