This is just a post to let you know you can get a pretty good This American Life TV fix without paying the Showtime premium thanks to the internet:
Showtime is screening the complete first episode on their website:
This episode features my songs “Excape from LA” (sic) and “The Album Leaf” in the soundtrack.
Also, this dazzling animation by cartoonist extraordinaire Chris Ware and animator John Kuramoto features “Squirrel Commotion” in the second half. I’m just pleased as punch to have my music paired to these poigniant and amusing storylines and rich, vivid imagery.
Excape From LA (sic):
The Album Leaf (from the artist portrait series album Homage Fromage):
The grand total is 13 songs appearing in the 6 episode series. I guess there were five in the season closer, which I haven’t seen yet. Have you?
***update: I saw the last one hour episode, “John Smith” recently and think it’s one of the best 60 minutes of television I’ve ever seen.
