The glow of success from this trip will be a memory forever.

But, some of the little details might fade.   So I'm starting this thread (instead of posting in the long thread) to capture some of the little moments that made the show special.

I'll start.   Remember IWSYS?   Jimmy doing the slidy-hands thing up the neck of the guitar?   Then continuing to do it with a silly grin on his face?

All I remember from Sing U Songs was my face melting. Then immediately melting again during War Begun, but not quite as much, then fully melting during PWW. Set break. Repeat.

I did eat some fungus before the show so that may have something to do with the melting

The drink service during the show was world class. I just remember double fisting for basically the entire first and second show. Never even had a chance to think about having to take a bathroom break.

Being very unhappy with "Careless Whisper" then having Jim change a crappy song into something ba ba bananas nanas... As usual. Freaking awesome!

Ever notice that they play their covers better than the originals, btw?

Wayne Coyne teleprompter scene was great.

Bar none, Jim's ear to ear smile during the teleprompter with wayne.

Also all the shout outs I randomly received after my (im)famous Short People Lip Sync "dance"
Pops, Langerado, Lollapalooza, RCMH, Miami Beach, MSG, St Aug, T5.

sometime late in the 2nd night set mahg33ta leaning in to say to me, "we're going to go home and talk about these shows and no one will believe it."
"i don't mean to brag, i don't mean to boast, but we like hot butter on our breakfast toast."

Standing there drinking a beer a beer on day 1 near the stairwell of building 6, turning around and seeing them roll up and get off a golf cart, greeting them as they passed, and watching them go up the stairwell to the green room - which I now discovered was essentially next to ours ... then, randomly passing and greeting them in the stairwell at various times when going to/from our room  :beer:
