  • MaxFun friends Rob Huebel and Paul Rust fight dirty with puns and pipes in Action Movie Pun Brainstorm. (If you haven't listened to Rob's presentation of Simon Rich's "Brainteasers" yet, you really should.)

  • The Decemberists, fronted by singer Colin Meloy, have announced a release date of January 18, 2011 for their upcoming album "The King is Dead". You can download the new song Down By the Water for free from their website.

  • Comics artist and Pulitzer Prize-winner Art Spiegelman edited and wrote the introduction for a new set of the wordless woodcut novels of Lynd Ward. Each page of Lynd Ward: Six Novels in Woodcuts is wordless, set with an single engraved image. The whole thing looks beautifully packaged, to boot.

  • Fans of upcoming guest Judd Apatow and crew should be happy: the debut of IFC's run of Apatow's great college comedy series Undeclared is Friday at 11pm. We've had several alums of the show on the program, including screenwriter Rodney Rothman and musician and actor Loudon Wainwright III.

Elephant Larry is going to be hosting an awesome show at the venerable Joe's Pub in New York, on Saturday, September 25th, at 11:30PM. We're going to be doing some of our newer sketches, and bringing in such friends as:

ANDREW WK! MaxFunCon's 2010 Person of the Year! He'll be playing some music and also just goofing with us. Man, just can't wait.
JAKE & AMIR! Of CollegeHumor fame. Funny guys who are totally cool despite their massive heady internet celebrity status.
MATT McCARTHY! You may know him as they redheaded bearded dude from the Verizon commercials, but he's an awesome standup and superfunny. He was recently on WTF podcast, so that's gotta be worth something, right?

Plus we got giveaways and games and it's just going to be a fun night. Please come out and have fun with us! There'll also be an afterparty, though we know not where yet. Shall be announced. Get your tickets here: http://bit.ly/brMKm4

Derrick Comedy: Gink

Since we're on a Donald Glover kick lately, what with the standup segment and the interview, here's the latest from Don and his cohorts in Derrick Comedy.

Their feature film, Mystery Team, comes out on DVD May 25th, and is available for pre-order now. Comes with my recommendation - very funny, very charming.
