A conversation in the men’s dressing room before the Bernstein concert.
Me: Have you checked out the trailer for 9?
Me: Oh it’s a movie that Tim Burton produced, but it’s look an action flick…
Tenor: Oh I hate Tim Burton.
Me: No dude, it’s Tim Burton but with explosions.
Tenor: I don’t think you understand how much I hate his movies.
Me: Dude. EXPLOSIONS.
Tenor: Basil, I’m not straight enough for explosions to matter so much as to disuade me from my hatred of Tim Burton.
Me: Then there’s nothing I can do.
