Below you'll find all 40 something tweets i sent out, yes, to twitter, pre, during and after the show. i had to document it all somehow. they should be read from bottom to top if you care anything about order. and some made it to the web OUT of order, so that further funks things up, but what must be said is. they did it again. blew me away fully.  Italics in parentheses explain all things that might not make sense to someone outside my own head.
