        • John: Pet my hair. 
  • John, asked at a show: Do the Breeders matter to you? Are they part of your pantheon?

    • There’s an extension at John’s house just built out of the boxes that overdrive pedals came in.

      • “Like Jeff Buckley, it’s great music to have sex to girls that tribal tattoos.” -JR

    • He never saw Nirvana. 
  • ~18:45- Being off sugar has given John clarity of mind. He’s realized is in an indefinable feud with 24 people. 
    • “There are people on the list that I haven’t spoken to in 5 years. There are people on the list I haven’t spoken to in 6 months. There are people on the list that are just recently added to the list. There are people that have been on the list for 18 years.” -JR. They can all be named.

  • 23:20: John’s attempt to get backstage at a show. 
    • "It’s a big festival so they hire a lot of convicts. They hire a lot of people who ate a lot of lead paint chips when they were kids. (Merlin: They hire the Altamont Group). The people that lived downwind from the smelter."
    • They’re trying to get through a doorway that separates them from the “50,000 dummies who are dipping corn dogs in powdered sugar” and the rarified backstage world "where everybody back here is wearing a gold cape and has an MTV Music Video Award. And we’re just gonna sit back here and put our pinkie fingers up each others’ butts, and this is why we do it.” -JR
      • Merlin: It’s like douchebag Valhalla. 
      • Earlier in the day, in his pursuit of special privilege, John had jumped over a barrier because he didn’t want to wait for “another one of

these Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s to take the time to look through his bag. Or whatever.” -JR 

  • He didn’t get a little red stamp on his all-access pass. So this little nimrod who is basically one of the puppets in  Blade Runner doesn’t let him.
    • He’s like, “I have been charged with one task in my entire life. My wife does not respect me. My children do not love me. My parents are dead. You shall not pass.”
      • “You need to let me through this door right now, otherwise it’s going to get terrible here. The atmosphere in your little corner of the stadium is going to get really bad for a little bit."
        • And he says, “You’ve gotta have a red stamp.” The atmosphere got really bad.
          • At one point John put his fingers to lips and says, “That’s enough."
          • “There’s a lot of bad things that are going to happen to you on Christmas Eve. This year. Is Christmas a thing? Does Christmas matter in your house?” -JR

    • “With one hand, I am giving this lady a sweet caress down the side of her shoulder, and with the other hand I’m giving the other guy the double nickels on the dime, fuck you middle-finger, right in his long-nosed face.” -JR
      • It was sort of like a synchronized swimming move.
