This is by far the rarest item in my TMBG collection. One of a kind, in fact! It’s the original hand-Sharpied lyrics to the TMBG venue song “Tucson” (aka “City Limits”), as performed for the first (and only) time on August 20, 2004 in my Arizona hometown. Note the spooky ghost illustration by Mr. Linnell. Many thanks to the house roadie who snagged it for me from the stage after the show!
Um ok that little ghost is like THE CUTEST THING EVER??? I LOVE YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU JOHN LINNELL. FUCK.
Also I do believe this is the largest sample of his handwriting we’ve ever seen at once! THAT’S EXCITING. Since Flans does the setlists, we mostly just have his autographs, and then a few other tiny things. I didn’t realize it was so BAD, haha. Cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute. (This is cute because EVERY SINGLE THING JOHN DOES EVER is either cute or sexy, OBVIOUSLY.)
You can seriously get all the reaction pictures you would ever need just from John Linnell’s faces in the part of the Flood promo where they’re saying the titles of all the songs
