the eighth in a series where we asked comedians to tell us what was good this year....

Sam Seder, David Cross and Jon Benjamin (CRED)
Jon Benjamin & friends

Jon Benjamin is another one of my favorite funny people in NYC. A fellow mass-hole by birth, Jon has carved his niche in the comedy world through his extensive voicework, absurd videos, unforgettable live collaborations, and unique approach to stand-up. Jon is part of Tinkle, a stand up show co-hosted by David Cross and Todd Barry as well as Midnight Pajama Jam with Jon Glaser. His voicework includes Dr. Katz, Home Movies, The Venture Brothers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Family Guy, Lucy Daughter of the Devil, Freak Show, Assy McGee, Wet Hot American Summer, and more. He's also guested and cameoed on a zillion TV shows and movies. Jon took a moment to tell us what he was into in 2007. - Klaus

My top ten music-related things of 2007 by Jon Benjamin

Les Savy FavLet’s Stay Friends, Les Savy Fav

Theme to Pocket Tanks, the downloadable game - this would have made my 2006 list, if I had made one

Mountain’s "Mississippi Queen" – this was the first song my son played on Guitar Hero 3 so it will always hold a special place in our hearts.

"Smell Yo Dick" by Riskay - isn’t there an easier way to expose your man for cheating? dicks frequently emit a bad smell which can be mistaken for pussy

continued below....

RazThat song with Raz on
Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show

Dinosaur Jr. live at Irving Plaza

I really like the Black Lips album

Pharoahe MonchPharoahe Monch, Desire - I met him briefly at an arts empowerment program for high school kids and he seemed to have the same distaste that I had for Matthew Lillard’s (Scooby Doo) saccarin rah rah speech he made to the kids about believing in themselves or maybe he didn’t. It might have just been me.

No Country for Old Men

No Country for Old Men - maybe not technically music, but definitely operatic.

The Clean Anthology - while not a 2007 release, I bought it in 2007.

I got into the Clean this year too thanks to Yo La Tengo's recommendation. I think Assy McGee is going too far. It's too lewd for my tastes. Otherwise I'm very happy with nearly everything that is said or done in the name of Brooklyn Vegan. Except for veganism. I'm not down with that. I love Hot Dogs! and potato chips. and mustard. and relish. but not ketchup. No, Siree! I'm not trying to be judgemental, I just don't want it on my hot dog. Ketchup Verboten! It is Satan's condiment. There is no doubt.
