No Philosophy??

Interesting that he played cigarette [aka FJ Part 1] right before FJ Part 2.  Did he talk about that or just play them back-to-back.

Would have enjoyed hearing OAD in Houston, but I got Gracie and Boxing so am content.

Yeah I realized he hadn't played philosophy on the ride home.

He did the story. Everybody went apeshit when he recited the article from "Cigarette" from memory before he played it. Like, that got more applause than the actual song, I think.

He told us he was going to play a slow song for the first song of the encore, and I was hoping for Boxing, but I am content with Evaporated. Heh heh...
