joss whedon this amrican lifeNo, you didn't miss a scoop about a Serenity sequel or that long-rumored Buffy movie finally getting made. Mr. Whedon will appear in a special live simulcast performance of Chicago Public Radio's This American Life on April 23.

The program will beam into 400 movie screens nationwide and will feature TAL host, and Buffy fan, Ira Glass and guests sharing stories connected by a central theme, "Return to the Scene of the Crime." The simulcast will feature show regulars Dan Savage, Starlee Kine, Mike Birbiglia, David Rakoff and Dave Hill along with Dollhouse producer Whedon who will deliver a "special musical performance."

I missed the first TAL movie theater simulcast in 2008, but I'm already making plans to catch this one. The TAL podcast is one of my favorite weekly listens, and I used to enjoy the Showtime TV version, also hosted by Glass. Oh, and JOSS FRAKKIN' WHEDON is gonna sing, or play the harp, or conduct a full orchestra or something!

We don't know any real details about Whedon's musical performance, but I hope it will feature back-up by Nathan Fillion and Dr. Horrible leads Neil Patrick Harris and Felicia Day. Or maybe a medley from "Once More With Feeling," the great Buffy musical episode.

http://www.thislife.org - the TAL homepage just FYI.

What really interests the rest of the world is: will this be published later on as a podcast or video or whocareswhat?

How 'bout getting your jurnalizm on Mike?
