Speed is a bit off…but…whatever
Hi, super fan here (only half joking). I’ve been a huge fan of you guys and everything you do for literally all my life. My parents would play their Flood CD in long car rides to entertain me when I was a baby. Here I am 15 years later! Your music has helped me through so much, from regular teenage angst to coping with my mental disorders. I saw my first concert at the Anaheim HOB last year, front row and stage left, and it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you guys for being such a constant force in my life.

I was reading a book and it talks about an incident in which Dick Tarleton (a famous comedian from the 16th century) got hit in the face with an apple while he was performing onstage. This reminded me of John Flansburgh’s Gak incident. ”John Flansburgh is in great company,” I thought.
