Re: Some observations about Y2KX

BIll Walker and I were joking that we were glad we didn't have to hit the "Just Kidding" button on our loopers during our sets.

That reminds me:
I once was at a performance of a big symphony orchestra and choir, who performed a symphony by Gustav Mahler (professionals on a *big* stage).  At one point the conductor stopped the performance, turned around to the audience and said: "We can do that better (Das können wir besser)." Then he started again with the movement where he had broken off. That impressed me very much,  I thought it was much more professional than somehow awkwardly trying to rescue the performance that had gone wrong.
