      So my big sister turns 60 and she's hired a chef, and is having 50 out
      to her house today. Her good friend is turning 40 and co-celebrating...
      I get the playlist and the PA out by the pool...

      So her friend submits the following and I will admit, some of these I
      had to go out and get. So how would *you* Iddiot-this-up ?

      By the way, I think she was incorrect on the "If You Got The Money..."
      Pretty sure she meant Willie on his 80th and all. But I did throw in a
      George Jones what with his passing and all.

        At least in NYC, story telling is an alive art form and very popular.
        I think it started about 10 years ago with:

        The Moth (story slam)
        http://themoth.org/
        -- true stores told live (and so popular it's now on NPR)

        After the NYT wrote about them several years ago,
        <http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/16/nyregion/thecity/16moth.html>
        and the line to get in went over an hour I stopped going.

        Some other venues are:

        How I Learned
        http://www.howilearnedseries.com/
        -- lessons learned, unlearned, relearned or in progress

        The Liar Show
        http://www.theliarshow.com/
        -- can you tell which storyteller is the liar?

        Talk Therapy
        http://www.talkingcurestories.com/
        -- stories about being in therapy

        The Story Collider
        http://storycollider.org/
        -- stories about science

        And undoubtedly there are others I don't even know about.
