Aaaauuggh! It's Must List time again!

High on my Must List this week is the clip below of Dan Fogler as Sam Kinison, apparently a screen test for a Kinison biopic. (Naturally, it’s full of NSFW language.) Fogler, who won a Tony a couple years ago as the foot-stomping speller in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and starred in Balls of Fury, seems to have some of ol’ Sam’s comedy bits, mannerisms, and screams down pat, don’t you think?

Your turn: Which three current movie/TV/music/books/games/Web items belong on your Must List this week? Please include your e-mail address so taht we can get in touch with you in case we decide to use your submission in the magazine. Deadline is 10 a.m. ET on Thursday, May 15.

    Discovery Channel’s “The World is Awesome” promo:

    It’s one full minute of pure, uncut happiness. With a Stephen Hawking cameo!

  • Lynny

    He’s great, but doesn’t he look a bit young? On stage I could totally see it- on film hmmm. Interesting. Oh my choice for must list is Flight of the Conchords new video for “Ladies of the World”. It is beyond wonderful.

    Karaoke Revolution: American Idol — I know it’s not a brand new game, but with the finals coming up I couldn’t help but buy this last week. After having a few drinks and then singing Fergie’s “Glamorous”, Randy told me I was pitchy, Paula gave me props for my effort and Simon said I sounded like 20 cats in a bag. Even better than watching the real thing!

    1. – from the Gawker folks, it’s all random sci-fi goodness (and hilarious to boot)
    2. Speed Racer score/Cloverfield theme on iTunes, both by Michael Giacchino. Genius composer who will be the next John Williams (and say what you must about Racer, but I totally dug it).
    3. Marvel Comics’ Secret Invasion. Skrull invasion + Catholic church’s OK to believe in aliens = comedy gold. That and it’s Marvel’s big summer event.

    Plotting Revenge on Gossip Girl

    1. The Swell Season live! They are touring now, catch them while you can. The music in “Once” is almost nothing compared to seeing them live — that’s how great they are.
    2. Jonathan Rhys Myers in “THe Tudors.” He’s so bad, he just can’t help himself from finding new mistresses and wanting wars.
    3. “The Host” by Stephanie Meyer — Are you reading it? You should be!

    Kinison was funny yet tragic, but I can’t see his story win any awards.
    Warriors: The Power of Three #3: Outcast by Erin Hunter. Warriors is children’s fantasy novel series about wild domestic cats. It’s so popular that it even has a series of graphic novels, an internet game,etc.

    I’ll say October Road Season One DVD…since they canceled the show!

  • Jessica

    Kristin Wiig on SNL. She is so hysterical in every skit she’s in.

  • Austen Geek

    Judi Dench in “Cranford” on Masterpiece (I refuse to leave off the) Theatre. I am eagerly anticipating the final installment to find out how this thoroughly enjoyable costume drama ends.

  • Rebel_Joo

    “Third” by Portishead is still kicking my butt. beautifully dark, emotional yet driving.
    i concur on the Flight of the Conchords video. ladies really do dig the roller skates.
    finally, i’m really enjoying the Tim & Eric/Zach Galafianakis Absolut ad.

    – The LOST Season 3 Soundtrack, music composed by Michael Giacchino – 2 Discs. 67 songs. 2 1/2 hours. LOST. Giacchino. What more could any fanboy (or girl!) want?
    — Kevin Durand on LOST – Rather than another one-note baddie (hello, Season 3’s Pickett!), Kevin Durand’s performance as Martin Keamy has made him the most love-to-hate character (aside from Ben, of course) of the latter half of LOST’s excellent Season 4.
    — “The Amazing Spider-Man” – Dan Slott (“She-Hulk”, “The Thing”) returns to the thrice-monthly adventures of Peter Parker, and he’s brought the stellar artist Marcos Martin (“Dr. Strange’s The Oath”) along with him!
