"With that, I felt satisfied, though I would not have complained had he gone into a second solo (or that same one again)."

Er. Seems someone doesn't understand what "satisfied" means. Or, I guess, can't get no, or something.

Also, "Emily's Mom and Dad" is totally a great new trope/meme/tag.

I'd pay good money for "Emily's Mom and Dad" merchandise. Get on it, guys.

That's an awesome idea!

Do we owe you a finder's fee? Or do we cut you a fair percentage?

I think a t-shirt would read something like this: "Emily's Mom and Dad think you should read The Detritus Review (tm) and eat more vegetables."
