5. “American Splendor” – Bittersweet biopic about underground
comic author is the desperately needed remedy for the summer’s
superhero flops like “Hulk” and “The League of Extraordinary
Gentlemen.”

4. “Cinnamon” by the Long Winters – Pitch-perfect end-of-summer
anthem that captures high-drama loss and longing better than any
other pop song this year. From their second album When I Pretend to
Fall.

3. Homestarrunner.com – Addictively hilarious flash cartoon site
following the adventures of an armless, lisping hero and his
harmless, loudmouthed archnemesis. TROGDOR!

2. One Mississippi by Brendan Benson – Hard to find debut from
Detroit singer-songwriter failed when it came out in 1996, but
deserves another listen after the success of Benson’s follow-up
Lapalco.

1. Gary Busey’s eyes – Like seeing the Grand Canyon for the
first time. You can’t really understand what Hollywood does to
people until you stare into the “I’m with Busey” star’s insane
gaze.
