From the mind of JP Hasson (creator of Pleaseeasaur) comes a new project called JP Incorporated. His aptly named debut for Comedy Central Records is called An Album of Distinction, and it's just that: distinctive...and an album! The record follows a consistently imaginative and hilarious path throughout its 24 tracks, all of which are theme songs for TV shows that do not exist - yet! In addition to Hasson's distinct music and vocal styles, An Album of Distinction features various cameos from members of The Dead Milkmen, Pinback, Black Heart Procession, Gregg Turkington, and more.

    " music obsessed kid novel #3 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jocardo | 2/10/2014

    " This book was great...up until the last 1/4 which just dragged on and on. Mingus and Dylan are two very interesting characters, one black one white, growing up in the 70's in Brooklyn. I knew a lot of the places they talked about in the book, and I was really pulled along until the last quarter. After that, Dylan's character just pissed me off and Mingus disappeared into the margins. It's one of those books that you have to "chew" on, not a quick read and not the kind of read that you can skim. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris Hudgens | 2/4/2014

    " a great story about acceptance and growing up, something we must continue to do every day... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David Press | 1/31/2014

    " Beautifully, beautifully written. Just no plot or story to speak with any interest towards. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maddie | 1/25/2014

    " You know how everyone loved Kavelier & Clay and it was the greatest comic book novel ever? They're wrong. This is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Max | 1/21/2014

    " Actually the whole book was good, I was tickled when he went into Dorsey's Locker in search of crime, since I have been scarred of that place since I was a little kid. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brandon G | 1/15/2014

    " Abandoned after page 200+. Went from a 5 star to a 2 star in a hurry for me. I'm sick of books doing that. I don't feel like giving it a 1 star just because Lethem can definitely write. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Spencer Baum | 1/7/2014

    " The Fortress of Solitude spoke to me personally more so than most novels. The author and I have a very similar worldview, and he so perfectly captured the childhood of the restless superhero-loving preteen that I felt like he was writing about my childhood. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Garrett Tezanos | 1/3/2014

    " If you want to read Jonathan Lethem, start with "Gun with Occasional Music" or "Motherless Brooklyn". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Seth | 1/2/2014

    " graffiti, comic books, camera-less animation, rock n' roll: what's not to like? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 11/27/2013

    " Another reasonably good narrative spoilt by po-mo hijinks. Everyone needs to stop trying to be so "clever." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 11/17/2013

    " One of the best descriptions of a childhood I've read. I disagree with some reviews that the second half wasn't as good. It was different, and less exciting... much like the second half of our lives when compared to childhood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 bess Stiffelman | 11/12/2013

    " Loved it, but i guess I'm not alone. Set in Red Hook in the 70s through aughts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 2/13/2013

    " S' about Brooklyn, yo, and like, flying. Super rad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 1/11/2013

    " if you live in brooklyn, this is a great history. really liked it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aislinn Groves | 11/13/2012

    " This book is good but very long, and lacks a clear plot line to keep the reader engaged. I found Let The Great World Spin by Colum McCann to be similar in style but a more enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Hysell | 11/5/2012

    " My other favorite of the year - really enjoyed this on CD. The book was wonderful & the reader was a perfect match. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn Tobia | 10/26/2012

    " One of the best books i've ever read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy Taylor | 10/24/2012

    " I absolutely loved the first half of this book, but I felt the second half kind of dragged. Overall though it was really good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 kimberly | 9/13/2012

    " Jonathan Lethem = Genius. Except, too bad he's so genius I have no words to describe the genius. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nate D | 9/11/2012

    " Lethem's melancholic reworking of his New York childhood nostalgia, perhaps, capturing both the first-hand realism and the somewhat meandering semi-plotting of actual memories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Smellica | 2/26/2012

    " If you're not sure where to start with Jonathan Lethem, start with this one. Set in Brooklyn in the last 70's, this novel takes you deep into the life of a boy, his best friend, and an unlikely superhero. This one's a keeper. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josie Lathrop | 9/11/2011

    " this was great, but i could have done without the fantasy plotline. but that's just me. i'm not into fantasy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 8/27/2011

    " I am really impatient with magical realism dropped in but ignored for long stretches like it is in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zach | 4/21/2010

    " As many have said, the first half is beautiful and nearly flawless. And then Lethem decided his characters should fly and turn invisible. It's well worth your time, but could have been so much better. "
