03.12.11 Shot Through the Heart

with 4 comments

Moth events are always entertaining. But Shot Through the Heart: Stories of Beaus and Arrows was fantastic on every level.  Each story was intensely felt by the storyteller, and in turn, the audience.  Todd Bush shared a horrific childhood hunting experience that taught him the politics of belonging.  Rachel Dratch hilariously described a tragically perverse ex-boyfriend.  Christian McBride told an inspirational and uplifting story about making it in the music business.  Tina McElroy Ansa left the crowd cheering after her triumphant tale of a beautifully surrendered virginity.  Walter Mosley revealed the decades he patiently endured waiting for his mother to say “I love you.”  And to top it off, the evening was hosted by Mike Birbiglia.

  1. Great shots! I went to the photoshelter link, and I especially like the expressions you captured of the guy with the elk shirt.

    • An elk would be a good addition to your collection. We should look for one of those.

  3. Thanks! Mike Birbiglia is so funny — and you have to admire a person who wears a panda sweatshirt in public.
