Thank you Blogger Beta for turning auto-login back on. Prepare for even more web-logging volume!

I'm just watching the NBC game show Identity, with your pal and mine, Penn Jillette, as host. The game is sort of stupid ("seal in the identity with your palm print"), and the editing is asinine (forced tension!). But, Penn is doing an excellent job as host. Very warm and engaging, very present on the stage. Same as ever, really, but the Penn and Teller character is very intense and aggressive, where TV host guy is much mellower. But that's probably the magic/circus background. It's all about making me feel that way so he can sneak that quarter in my ear. Seriously, give it a watch and see if you don't feel the same way. I hope to see more of him on TV.

(And I'm gushing as someone who's been a little down on Penn lately.)
