mattgourley: Backstage at the Thrilling Adventure shows in San…


Backstage at the Thrilling Adventure shows in San Francisco this weekend, we were sitting around a table. Somehow it came up that everyone, in fact, ‘has a phone.’ Steve Agee and Paul F. Tompkins began to doo-wop the statement. There was a John Hodgman at the table too, and I believe a Mark McConville and a Jeremy Carter as well. There may have been more, I don’t know. The point is a little song came out of it and then not long after, this happened.

Happy #TAH11! Yes, errbody got phones. Especially backstage at our show.

Marc Evan Jackson and Jenny Wade:

Paul F. Tompkins used his phone to take a photo of Jenny Wade taking a photo of her and Paget Brewster:

Adam Savage took a phone-photo with Timothy Omundson:

Paget (inspired by Paul) phone-photoed the ladies of #TAHDownUnder: Annie Savage, Molly Quinn, Becky Ward, Jenny Wade, Carla Cackowski, Juliana Hansen, and Janet Varney.

Paul really is the best when it comes to capturing those backstage moments. He’s truly got phones.
