Close Encounters of the Jon Kind

encounter with pics here
I was so close to him! I
had second row seats, I could've touched him! Damnit! I am such a wimp. I didn't
bring my camera because we weren't "supposed to" and it would be "confiscated"--lying
The show was great, a lot
of repeat material from TDS and Unleavened. Actually, the only "new"
material was about the venue we were in and that he was too warm in his sweater
(he did end up taking a dollar someone threw him, but kept his clothes on).
He left the cap to his water bottle on stage. I was so tempted to just grab
it on the way out. I had even brought a copy of Details mag (the one with him
on the cover) for him to sign, but I totally wimped out. I don't deserve to
be called a fan. He didn't metion his wife much--only when telling the story
about Monkey eating her own vomit and diarrhea (loved the sound effects to that
and his cat with 1/2 of a uterus in heat). I wanted to ask about "Stan"
and "Shamsky" but I was too embarrassed to yell it out.
I was so close... such
a missed opportunity, I want to crawl back into bed and weep.
Oh--he had a hard time
getting back through the curtains at the end. The house lights were on and most
people were leaving but he did this sort of deer caught in the headlights thing
to make fun of the fact that he couldn't figure out how to get backstage.
