I'd like to do a CD this year of THE WOLVES IN THE WALLS (and, because it's not that long, I'd probably put THE DAY I SWAPPED MY DAD FOR TWO GOLDFISH on it as well).
Trying to find a Penn Jillette essay, I discover that the Penn and Teller sincity.com website has been gazumped by a porn-film site. My initial reaction is that it's some kind of strange Penn and Teller joke, especially because there are scary-looking lady twins with things that look almost but not really like actual human breasts in their chest region staring out from the home page.
The "Sister Act," who are guaranteed to add a sexy, stylistic, sibling symmetry to this year's Awards Show couldn't be happier, "To be on-stage throughout the entire show is unbelievable ..," gushed Taylor. "... we were excited to be sitting in the audience - but this [serving as Trophy Girls] is unbelievable," finished Tyler.
...so I wonder if it's some strange Onion style P & T parody site, but apparently not -- seems to have become a feeder site for sincityfilms. Eventually find http://pennandteller.com/sincity/ (after several bad links at pennandteller.com that keep taking me back to the porno site and the ladies with the unfortunate chests) and I find the essay I wanted -- it's Penn's saga of airport security -- at http://pennandteller.com/sincity/penniphile/roadpennfederalvip.html and its sequel at http://pennandteller.com/sincity/penniphile/roadpennworkingclass.html.
And I don't know if I've ever put it up here, but you can (and should) read Max Beerbohm's marvellous deal-with-the-Devil short story "Enoch Soames" -- it's here, amongst other places on the web, and then read Teller's essay/event at http://www.theatlantic.com/issues/97nov/teller.htm. You'll thank me later.
