In the silence that followed, I heard Tiki Dan talking about his craft. I noticed Dan was wearing work boots with shorts. With his handlebar mustache and the crazed look in his eyes, I thought he might go to town carving up the back-yard fence.

A band called the Hype started setting up. I said to a woman wearing a "Believe the Hype" shirt that it was cool she had shirts made. "Oh, I didn't. We saw these at Old Navy and bought 'em all."

The singer reminded me of Jim Belushi when he started playing harmonica. He said, "This is like playing a cruise." As I left, I heard him say, "I've never had a host tell me to turn it up before... Cool!"
