  13. Just woke up from a dream where I was at a Psy concert and we were all trying to break records with him for ‘Longest running concert ever.’ At one point he asked if we were hungry then we excitedly watched him order pizzas for everyone from the Dominos website. He also asked us to raise our hands and sway them a little so the whole stadium could look like “amber waves of arms”. Very interactive experience.

  15. "Sir, I think he was holding a ream of paper in that one"

    "Fuck it, we’ll air it."
