Our own Graham Clark of Stop Podcasting Yourself is also an accomplished artist who creates charming paintings using his beard as a brush. The subject matter is lively, fun and diverse ranging from a portrait of Don Rickles to two robots playing leapfrog. He has painted and sold more then 50 pieces and donates all of the proceeds to charity.
That's all terrific, but, let's best honest: you've lost countless hours of sleep wondering how he does it, right? Now, finally, you can watch his beard in action!
Video bonus: Graham discusses his painterly technique with an attractive blonde lady wearing a v-neck garbage bag.
Twenty-five years ago, Art Spiegelman created his Pulitzer Prize-winning book Maus. In this documentary-style book trailer, Spiegelman talks about the creation of this classic and we get to preview the soon-to-be-released MetaMaus which explores the materials that he used to write Maus and answers some of the most commonly asked questions about the author's creative process. Metamaus will be sold with a companion DVD that contains a digitized reference copy of The Complete Maus featuring audio interviews with Spiegelman's father, historical documents, and generous excerpts from the author's notebooks and sketches.
MetaMaus will be available on October 4th. Until then, you can find more material from the book on Spiegelman's Facebook page.
Terrific commercial parody from Jordan, Jesse and friends.

The Sklar Brothers were on Conan this week to promote their new album "Hendersons and Daughters". Their time included some lovely analysis of Google searches and the problems that may result when you start hoarding episodes of Hoarders.
Another example of using comedy for good today: Lucasfilms has collaborated with Stand Up to Cancer to make this Star Wars themed video tribute featuring Aziz Ansari, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg, and Emma Stone acting out lines from (the best movies of) the Star Wars series. Stand Up to Cancer funds a variety of innovative and collaborative research projects that are working towards a cure.
Good nerdy fun and all for a good cause.
Aha! Fictional character Alan Partridge will soon release an "autobiography" recounting the many sad, funny and ridiculous adventures surrounding his increasingly desperate efforts to find success as a television and radio chat show host. Bearing the suitably immodest title of I, Partridge: We Need to Talk about Alan, the book was actually written by Partridge's creators, actor Steve Coogan and director Armando Iannucci, and will be released on September 29th.
Here's a clip of Coogan, in character as Partridge, discussing the book.
On this week's JJGO!, our hosts chat with Joshua Malina and discuss his zany, madcap web series "Backwash". As such, I thought you might enjoy checking out the first episode of that series, as introduced by Jon Hamm.
You can find the other equally hilarious episodes on Crackle.com.
