August, 1997. A young Jeff Mangum sits in the living room of Jim McIntyre's spacious home in Denver, Colorado (it has been dubbed "Pet Sounds Studios," and the name seems to stick). Mangum, a lanky man with a penchant for flannel and sweaters with colorful designs on them, sits brooding in the late afternoon light, smoking herbal cigarettes and listening to Bavarian folk music. He is thinking to himself, "Should I put 'Ghost' on the record? I don't know. It doesn't seem to fit. I feel like it never really lived up to its potential. I was into it at first, but now I just don't know. It seems to be lacking something. Not enough movement. Everyone else likes it, but I just don't know." He stubs out his cigarette and leans back in his chair, letting the sad strains of the Oom-pah band wash over him. 

October, 2010. A young Andrew Livingston sits in the study of his spacious apartment in Ypsilanti, Michigan (it has been dubbed "Special Cat Studios," and the name seems to stick). Livingston, a portly gentleman with a penchant for jogging suits and pajamas, sits brooding in the late afternoon light, staring at a "Boys of the NYFD" calendar from 1992 which adorns his wall. The calendar is not open to the correct month, nor does it seem to have been marked with any important dates. He is thinking to himself, "Should I put 'The Devil at Llourdes' on the record? I don't know. It doesn't seem to fit. I feel like it never really lived up to its potential. I was into it at first, but now I just don't know. It seems to be lacking something. Not enough movement. Everyone else likes it, but I just don't know." He swats a drooling cat off his computer keyboard and leans back in his chair, letting the gaze of the hunky fireman on the wall, whose eyes seem to glimmer with a mischievous intent, wash over him.

I met a guy who was in Iraq and he taught me how to choke you out in 4 seconds.

That's not my point. I guess I'll have to try again.
