Cindy and I went to see a live performance of This American Life at the Berklee Theater on Saturday. The guy from Found Magazine was hilarious, but the biggest crack-up line for me was Sarah Vowell’s “what would Jesus do” (answer: die) in the context of discussing the checkered past of the Battle Hymn of the Republic. The accompanying band actually had a theremin player, which was neat to watch. He also played the musical saw, which sounded surprisingly similar. All in all, it was a very good time. If you’ve never listened to the show, I highly recommend trying it once or twice. It’s like nothing else on radio; it’s like an in-depth “slice of life” and/or storytelling kind of thing, with mood music and plenty of humor.
