o from a S earlier post on here (even though the radio episode referred to has now been largely discredited), you have probably guessed what a big ol’ NPR/ PRIlistening, This American Life and Ira Glass fanboi I am.
Well, last Thursday, May 10th, I had the pleasure of wandering over to our own Portland Regal Lloyd Center 10 Cinemas in the evening, and watched, through
Fathom Events, broadcast live from New York via satellite, a two-hour extravaganza of This American Life Live.
I was in Public Radio visual heaven, on the theme of “making the invisible visible.”
Ira Glass and Ryan Knighton and the Monica Bill Barnes Dance Company and OK Go (who coded a special mobile app that the audience could use to play along just for their performance in the show) and David Rakoff dancing and Glynn Washington and David Sedaris inexplicably in clown make-up and fun animations and films and dance and stylized photos by an amazing unknown photographer from the 1960s and Tig Nataro and Taylor Dayne. That’s right, you heard me: 90s dance club legend Taylor Dayne. We really love her voice.

y good friends M Joy and Kelsey, a lovely couple, have a blog & do workshops on Real, Sustainable Foods & Eating, The Liberated Kitchen LLC.
To inject some humor, they have
hopped on the whole Ryan Gosling Meme Train and come up with these two, which I find pretty damn funny —
In addition, I’ve given
The Liberated Kitchen LLC and these two funny Tumblr sites favored blog-nation status on my blog roll list over there on the far right column. ☞

on’t know if you are aware, but in addition to my work here on D “i also went…,” I also do occasional side blogging for my pal Sabrina Miller’s site to promote theater in Portland, Portland Stage Reviews. (it’s true, i’m stepping out on this blog to write on another blog on the side — I’m shameless).
I just had another review of mine posted on there, for local storytelling phenomenon,
Backfence PDX at their special appearance at Portland Center Stage.
You can read the
Backfence PDX review I wrote here.
And here also are some previous reviews I’ve written for Portland Stage Reviews —
So now you know.
