Enlightenment Tour Day 28: Travel/Day Off

Well, Dallas is massive. And the highways are lined with an endless array of stores, businesses and restaurants. Endless! Everything is indeed bigger in Texas, including my room service bill! Ouch! Serves me right for getting hungry at 4:30 AM. All night video editing can make the stomach grumble. Y'all are gonna like this DVD, ah do beleive. Meanwhile Rivers was busy with solo hotel room demo recordings, delving into the ultra compact world of laptop recording. The Wilsons escaped to the distant suburbs to visit friends. Scott creedled strong as per usual on days off, and Brian was awol as usual on days off.
