EXACTLY....

I'll never forget what Tori did when I went to see her in Tulsa, OK back in 1995 or 96... 

She was singing Me and a Gun and when she got to the part that says "because I wore a slinky red thing, does that mean I should spread ........" and before she could even finish the verse, some stupid *** yokel yells out WOOO HOOO YEAH BABY....   And Tori just stopped cold.  I mean cold.....  The song is acapella anyway, so you when she stopped singing, you could hear a pin drop in the Brady Theater.  So we had all heard that guy catcalling her above her music, SO LOUDLY, and we were all in shock, just waiting to see what she was going to do, when she looks straight out towards the guy and whispers into the microphone "EXACTLY"....  Who knows if the guy even got the point or not, but it was like such a strong moment for me.  I am a HUGE Tori lover anyway, but the whole thing brought me to tears.  WOW...

I'm a big tori amos fan!!!!!I love her!!!!!!!!

Oh gosh, I would have loved to have seen that. She is wonderful to see live. This story reminds me of this one time I was working as a geologist in KC. They got the entire company together to watch an HR diversity training. It gets to the part about being non-homophobic and one of the guys shouts out, "f*cking ****ot". No ****, everyone just stopped and stared.
