TG: Now the new CD is 34, 35 minutes long which is short for a Cd but it works for me. I prefer listening to CD's to just (looks for the right word) songs you know by a different artist collected and scrambled together. But I often don't have enough time to make it through a whole CD in one sitting so this is a kind of very, a very uh nice amount to handle in one sitting. Why did you want to keep it that short? Because it is short for a CD.
The band went on to gamely try to explain to Gross the history of vinyl vs. CD.
TG: I'd like to ask each one of you about your music background which is so not the image like of the like the indie band performer. Like Mike, you were in marching band (Laughs) which must have really been fun. I love marches, uh ...
She has asked him a question about death and cemeteries. He goes on for a bit. She then asks him, "So do you have a plot picked out? Do you know what kind of cemetery you'd like to be buried?"
PR: Which would be easiest for you visit my grave? (This elicits hearty laughter from Terry. I'm not sure if she knows he's making fun of her or not.) And I'll pick out a plot that is convenient and we can continue this interview series into eternity. (Lot of laughter from Terry which she ends with a "Ah yeah" before moving onto her next question which leads to a lot of soul searching for Terry.)
TG: But do you want to be buried? I mean (Roth tries to answer the question but she interrupts with this doozy) I have this sense that cemeteries in their own way are almost, um, outdated? Because people are so scattered all over the place geographically, friends and family all over the place, and they're not tied together in a physical community anymore and ... um ... uh ... and cemeteries, I don't know, they seem like ... you need to take care of the neighborhood, you know. You go in there and it's as if like you bought this home for somebody (laughs) in a neighborhood and it's like, "Is it a nice neighborhood? Is the neighborhood being kept up? What are the neighbors like? And it's just like this weird way sometimes of thinking of the dead.
PR: Well, I feel differently. (He went on to talk about visiting the graves of his family members and how it is a powerful thing for him.)
