Circus tape
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
BC: Thanks, thank you very much. So um, what do you wanna hear? Well, this person has a sign that says Snail, we don't remember how to play that. And Soma and Geek, we don't remember how to play those songs either. Uh, any other suggestions that we don’t know how to play?
Iha: Yeah. Well, we're gonna play this other song. It’s in honor of Thanksgiving, this is Ode to a Lonely Turkey, we hope you enjoy it.
BC: Just remember that when you're eating that turkey, it was once a free, happy turkey.
Iha: With a mind! With a mind of its own.
BC: And soon the turkey will be in your belly and you will feel guilty.
Iha: Guilt, they say, we say. ‘Course we’re gonna all eat turkey so that’s why.
BC: Hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving, all guilty and stuff.
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans / Rocket
[encore break]
Iha: Thank you everybody. How is everybody, great, rocking reasonably? We haven't been too psychedelic? No? You're still with us? Still up for a mind over body deal? Ain't got no selector. Alright, for these next songs we journey oh so far back, pre-grunge. This is our classic part of our set. We hope you enjoy it. This is from our uh...fourth album, Waterloo.
BC: Thanks, god bless you.
[encore break]
Iha: How are ya? Ladies and gentlemen, we have - we have entered into the full scale entertainment part of our arena rock cliche...so we will bring out a special guest. Ladies and gentlemen, all the way from Milwaukee, the great state, oh so great, Jimmy Frog! Hey...Jimmy Frog. Jimmy Frog! Oh, I can see the excitement on your faces. And, ladies and gentlemen, on the keyboards, from the band Night Ranger, Dennis Flemion! Yes. Any of you who are fans of Sister Christian, we have him right here. Happy to play keyboards with us, rock out in the ‘90s. And now...and now! The man behind the drums, Matt “Cosmo” Walker! Matt “Cosmo” Walker, he’s a likeable guy, took four years of college and he's happy to be here with us, rocking for you. And now, we have entered into what we would deem...audience participation.
BC: I don't know...
Iha: Don’t grow up.
BC: ...most of the audience has left, I'm not sure there’s anyone to participate with.
Iha: Oh, it’s, it’s a dubious position, as they say.
BC: Would anyone here like to come on stage and dance? Jimmy, choose the dancers.
(Matt starts a disco beat)
Iha: Choose.... Oh yeah, come on, fuckin' people of Biloxi. I gotta feel it, come on people! Get those hands in the air like you just don't care! Come on! Oh yeah, yeah, oh yeah. Come on, get those - yeah! [unintelligible muttering] Jimmy, pick our dancers, alright!
BC: Oh yeah. Do some funky, Matt Walkman!
(Matt changes to a more funky beat)
Iha: Damn.
BC: Oh yeah.
Iha: Alright. I believe we have our dancers. Alright, Jimmy. Jimmy, have you picked our dancers? (Matt and Dennis stop) Alright, dancers, come - come ye hither.
BC: Hello dancers. Heh heh.
Iha: Yo yo.
BC: Come close.
