One of the cameramen is taking his time framing a close-up on the singer and asks Oberst if he has a good side. Oberst says that the left side of his face has been feeling droopy and jokes that he's worried that he has had a stroke. Someone in the studio says that he read somewhere that people often think they smell popcorn before having a stroke.
"Oh, no, last night I smelled popcorn," says a wide-eyed Oberst.
"Conor, we were in a movie theater last night. Everyone smelled popcorn," says bassist Jake Bellows as the whole band cracks up. Bellows wasn't playing on the next song, but instead of leaving the stage he picks up his beer, sits on an amp and says he's just going to "hang here, if that's OK."
