I did think of an ideaon the way over here.

It sounds impressive, but whenit's a six hour fucking flight,

six hours is actuallya long time.

I've seen shows here--if you combined

all the writing donefor every set

ever done on this stage,

probably two hours.

So I had three timesas much time

to write somethingon the way over here.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say

is let's do some crowd work.

Lady, what's the dealwith the tattoos?

- Me?- Yeah.

What do they mean to you?

- Music?

- A Modest Mouse one?Oh, my God.

- And the Mountain Goats.Holy shit.

- You like animal bands.

- Yeah, I know what you meantby "Animal bands."

I came up with this ideaon the plane over here.

I know--I'm smart enough to knowwhat animal bands are.
