notes to the dr. of criminology- where if he were not a sappy lovesick
guitar player- he would be working for the FBI. how strange. stay sappy,
well. is this a story? im not sure but it is interesting. (to mtx fans...
or maybe just frank himself) its more of a series of events and strange
happenings that just happen to happen at an MTX show in Oct in salt Lake.
first- i want to say thanks to frank for playing 'More Than Toast' when we
asked you to. and me and my wonderful girl were probably bugging you too
much when we kept asking you to play more songs off of 'Our Bodies Our
Selves'. cos you and i both know that its a trite more difficult to play
most of those songs with only one guitar now-- right?
second- i would have to say that your constant eye on my wonderful girl
made for much conversation between us. and i thought it was great. or
course how could you not? we were right in front. i mean the real-
actual- total- front. she was blond (not natural- thank goodness) and had
a white shirt on and through out your set during each song there would be
times when she would be so embarrassed from your crazy smiling stares that
she would turn away flushed into my shoulder. during 'I fell for you' at
the precise moment at which the lyrics go "...give the signal. Ready? Go!"
- she pretended to faint and fell back... you laughed so hard that you
messed up the song. that was funny.
one other piece of strange occurrence was that you happen to play "Ready
Set Go" from the "MML" album. i think that is a pretty obscure song
compared to all the stuff you have out these days. but it just so happens
that love that song... and the strangest part is that i showed the lyrics
and told my wonderful girl to listen to the song- as a metaphor for how i
was feeling when we were in a fight- just two weeks before the show.
oooohhh. still, stranger things have happened.
above all of the nights highlights in the DV8 basement that night... even
above when you explained to me about your ---Horse Racing Theory and how it
relates to Pretty Girls--- (that had been bugging me for months since the
night when the Hi fives played and John D told me about your insane theory)
--(i have yet to take my wonderful girl to the track to test this theory
out- im quite interested in turning it into a 'hypothesis instead of just
a theory)... anyhow.. above all things that night---> i found it most silly
of you when some hip-hop looking kid came up to you and asked for your
'John Hancock'-- placed right on his white hip-hop visor that had an
anarchy sigh on it--- you simply spelled your name with a 'circle A' as
in anarchy. i took it with amazing humor and laughed at your amazing
simplistic humor-- i bet that hip-hop guy did not even know it was a joke.
was it? haha.
