Stephin Merritt has won a prestigous Obie award, it would seem!! Mr. Merrritt has won in the category of music and lyrics for (what else?) Coraline. Congratultions to Mr. Merritt and all parties involved. At this point, I'm sure Mr. Merritt's resumé is dauntingly long and, of course, very impressive.
Oh, and can I just mention how much I adore the above photograph?
