This may be one of the most special times in my life. There was something about this show/gathering that had a sort of magic about it. I remember Tim coming by my work in Lyndon Plaza as I was trying to finish the booklet Mouse wrote, print it, staple it etc… literally hours before the show. Typical Stove in those days—same as the posters for the Bond-a-thons. I was just starting my relationship with Julie and really feeling part of the blob/cliche/thing that was Tim, Mouse, Venuti etc… You know what I’m talking about! 

I’m not going to break this out into songs, but you can see there on the right. I broke it into 3 parts because YouTube made me, and just like that night it worked out to just under 15 min. per video—a perfect gathering.

This sounds like shit from a production standpoint, but if you were there it will bring back that spark of whatever it was.
