This stuff is too good to leave on the General Discussion board. The Gray Flannel Dwarf is in fine form:

Ah man, I just got back...Dylan and his people destroyed Portland--I'm still in ear ringing shock here, and I consider myself fortunate--The Chiles Center was reduced to a smoking ruin...bodies and wreckage strewn about...shock and awe, baby shock and awe...it started innocently enough, oh yeah, but...holy socks--it turned ugly and Bob's gang showed no mercy-no mercy at all...brutal..savage...there was no mercy---old grannies were grabbing their chests-strong men wilted --youths fell faint away..I staggered away over the bodies of the fallen...one, a clergyman, begged for water as he lay upon the floor-I gave him a few sips from my bottle-..I guess I should've stayed with him-I hope he made it out alright..but towards the end it was every man for himself...I tell you, the first 9 or 10 rows were completely obliterated-the people were totally wasted by sonic assaults of this band...it was merciless and savage....I gonna try to sleep for an hour and see if the numbness will wear off...I'll check with you later..


And then...

I think I'm suffering some post traumatic concert shock or something---sleep was impossible---with my ears ringing I clutched my blankets but when I closed my eyes nasty looking weasles drenched in purple oil lunged at me from the darkness--I had no choice but to just lay there quivering with my eyes open--reliving the evening's performance--THOSE DEMONS!! They gave no quarter--they were definitely on some hellbound mission of glory-they were...ANGRY! They wanted blood and by God they got it. I dunno what in the helll ticked them off so-someone pissed in their granola, or slapped their collective granny around, I dunno, but they came to kick some serious ass and they didnt care who got in their way--I CAN STILL SEE THEM--KIMBALL, RECELI, and GARNIER! driving hard--slashing! pounding! beating!-like devils--possessed by some hellish desire to inflict maximum damage...and....and..and... their leader HIM!...crouched over the keys like some intergalatic back alley cat in a cowboy hat ready to pounce and suck the soul out of any living thing that befell those flinty squinty eyes---the look in his eyes said it all....Oh those poor sonsabitches down front--it was withering--searing and scorching--their hair flew straight back off their heads like they were in some sonic hurricane--their clothes were ripped to shreds--the sheer power coming off the stage pinned them to their seats like G forces in a jet fighter--I saw their faces distort like men who ride in centrifuges--lips peeled back over their eyebrows--cheeks flapping back against their ears-it went on for ninety minutes--it was savagely brutal--they poor bastards never knew what hit them..oh the humanity


And finally:

It was pure devastation--the looks on the victims faces will haunt me all my days....the last time I saw the faces of shock like that was when big tsunami hit the Empire State Building on December 11th---those sadistic fiends!! when the place was totally destroyed they stopped playing, put down their instruments--came to stage center and JUST STOOD THERE SMIRKING AND SMILING! oblivious to the wailing of the victims--then they slunk off with smiles of smug satisfaction on their faces.....BUT, they wern't done yet, the greedy maniacs came back and inflicted more savage sonic assaults on the already helpless....IT WAS FRIGGING GREAT!! I WANNA GO BACK TONIGHT AND DO IT AGAIN!!!!WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
