8) In addition to comedians releasing their own specials, comedy albums on vinyl seem to be taking off as Hannibal Buress will be joining Kyle Kinane and Jonah Ray in releasing his latest special Animal Furnace also on vinyl.

9) On today’s Puddin’, Eddie Pepitone + lemons + Patton Oswalt trying not to break + cameo by David Koechner = a better May 5th, 2012.
