Ahh, so that's where those samples on the original Mr. Bungle album came from. Some of them, anyway.

You know, Skip is local to me and I still have yet to see one of his fabulous productions. I'm going to have to make a point of catching his next shindig and squeezing him for Hell fodder.

I missed Skip's show the last time he hit Dallas. I'm thinking of driving to the Austin show. I wish I could do what Skip does...
