Please enjoy this remembrance of Toxie, NPR’s Planet Money’s toxic asset:
Went to this week’s taping of Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! last night! So. Much. FUN!
Judd Apatow is the interview this week. Tune in Saturday and hear how much fun we had!
I love Andy Richter. For my money he’s one of the funniest comic actors out there.
There’s a nice interview with him on NPR today, and this quote especially jumped out at me:
“If you start to just aim for what the audience wants to hear, you’re already hamstrung.”
“So the only thing you can do is do something that you think is funny. And I don’t mean, become a big artist, but do try to tickle your own funny bone as much as you can, and hope that you have a sense of humor people can relate to.”
Heard this yesterday on NPR:
Scott: So as things get bad in the real world, things get worse for Dilbert so they're going to get real bad in a few weeks here for Dilbert.
John: How bad are they going to get?
childhood, graphic novels are showing themselves to be a medium of
startling breadth and grace. Don’t call them a genre anymore;
cutting-edge graphic novels exist for everyone. With last year’s widely praised film adaptation of Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, there was a sense these books had come into their own.
