Lots of Chris Ware everywhere: The indie artist drew the cover of the most recent "New Yorker," along with a typically melancholy Halloween feature. Boing Boing also reminded us of an episode of "This American Life" (below) that Ware animated for Showtime about a fad at an elementary school where kids started making cardboard cameras and pretended to film the events around them as news -- and how that very quickly altered the way they treated each other.
There's a second "This American Life" segment by Ware about the fluidity of memory and a woman's brief encounter with Jackie O in New York, and it is also highly enjoyable. Why aren't there scores more of these Ware/NPR mashups? I'd happily pay money to see them.
