The BBC is reporting that the new film by humor God Chris Morris, (who created the amazing series The Day Today and Brass Eye in the 1990s with help from past TSOYA guests Graham Linehan and Armando Iannucci) has been shortlisted for competition in the world cinema portion of the Sundance Film Festival.
Which, I guess, means it's done and going to come out. Which I didn't know. And is awesome.
It centers on four British would-be terrorists in a terrorist training camp.
Which, again, is awesome.
Jordan Morris ranks America in his own inimitable way.
Two reasons this is the greatest Christmas ever:
1) Maria Bamford made her own Christmas special and is giving it to us for free at her website.
2) Pee-Wee Herman made the best Christmas special ever, and is streaming it free on his website.
This will be the greatest Christmas ever.
SKYMAUL FOR EVERYONE!
Right now I am trying to imagine a world where I have $1000 to get my wife and myself to New York to see Fela!.
We continue our journey into The Sound of Young America's vast audio archive with this program from The Sound of Young America Classics.
Grammy-winning rapper Killer Mike is a native of Adamsville, Georgia, outside of Atlanta. Since debuting on the Outkast single "The Whole World" in 2001, he has emerged from the shadow of his legendary mentors, combining a ferocious delivery with lyrical density in a manner reminiscent of Ice Cube in his hey-day. He recently released "I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind," a two-CD "street album" with his crew, Grind Time Rap Gang.
Please note: we had a little phone trouble 2/3 of the way through and Mike had to go on speakerphone, apologies for any audio quality issues.
