just got back from the live screening of ‘this american life’ and it was so so good! the hangman and anagram pre-show animation (that replaced the typical pre-movie trivia slideshow) was funny and clever and the show itself was fantastic. some outtakes and clips were shown from the new season of the showtime tv series version of the show – the chris ware clip was adorable and the segment about the ‘ask an iraqi’ booth was brilliant. and, as pat predicted, i totally have a crush on ira glass now. i can’t wait to see the new season on sunday night!
