TSR Buzz: Will Ferrell's letter, Charlie Day goes Greek and Occupy Portland gets dark

With TSR Buzz, you’ll find links to articles, videos and other random things that will help you waste your time just a little bit more.

  • Will Ferrell won the Mark Twain prize. It's old news but I haven't been to Funny or Die for awhile, so I missed this gem. Larry David totally makes this video.

  • Despite having Charlie Day as the host, SNL wasn't great this week. Luckily, the monologue was good and few sketches were decent, like this one combining Greek mythology and the Euro debt crisis. Not haha funny, but very clever.

  • I found this on Reddit. I don't know anything about the performer, but it's a really beautiful cover of Sufjan Steven's "Casimir Pulaski Day."


  • Occupy Portland started as a really exciting movement, people coming together to protest peacefully. But it's gotten ugly out there lately.  This video is fascinating viewing.
