  • Penn & Teller

    Went to Penn & Teller on Sunday night, and they dropped a reference to the Dateline NBC / Defcon debacle.

    Rock.

    yeah, that was awesome... for those who don't know the full scoop, one of the stage tricks that P&T do in their act pertains to a newspaper. they alternate reading different sections, ripping the pages down the middle, handing sections back and forth, etc etc... all the while Penn makes aside comments about silly news. This time it was cracks about Paris Hilton, drunk NASA people, and "Dateline at DefCon" (in the end, of course you can predict, with a flourish the paper is made whole again... very polished slight-of-hand work from them on all the tricks)

    naturally the whole room let out a decent "w00t" since so many of us were present. speaking of, i was pissed almost the instant after introducing myself on stage during the gun trick for not giving "Deviant" as my name in a head nod towards all of the DC folks who were there that night.

I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

          Yup, they mentioned it again in the same trick on Monday. After the show, I caught Teller doing autographs. When I went up to him, he said (yes, Teller said) "so you're one of the Defcon guys, huh?"

          I got a picture with him, too.
