This piece dates all the way back to 1997. I wanted to do something made up entirely of the things people say in between the things they mean to say and my then-roommate Matt Koegler had the brilliant idea to record C-SPAN and use it for the source material. (Incidentally, this is the same Matt Koegler credited with suggesting the name of the Frank Zappa album “Frank Zappa Meets the Mothers of Prevention.” He’s real good at suggesting.) Although it’s pretty short it took about 2 months to edit. Why the picture of Barney Frank? If you listen really close, you can hear him.
