why don't you try making five beats a day?

If there's a more obvious choice of a comedian for an independent pop music blogger to have a big boy crush on, it's Aziz Ansari. He's best known for his short films which he makes in conjunction with Human Giant, but what draws folks like you and I in is his own blog and his adamant love of (what readers and the writer of no one is awake would deem) good music (Neutral Milk Hotel, Talking Heads, Pavement, etc). Additionally, though it offers no real insight on his comedy and serves more as a school girl crush description, but you simply have to nod in respectful agreement with this list of Aziz's "favorite movies:"
Spinal Tap, Before Sunset, Before Sunrise, Annie Hall, The Graduate, Vanilla Sky, Broken Flowers, Pulp Fiction, 12 Monkeys, The Royal Tenenbaums, Office Space, Being John Malkovich, Fight Club, Reservoir Dogs, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, & The Squid and the Whale.
To the point; Aziz is funny and a lot more people are noticing every day.
