– The Onion, April 2002
“‘I was in the bathroom when it happened,’ said Gaer, a part-time cashier at School Kids Records. ‘There was this loud crashing sound, followed by even louder crashing, and then all these screams. If I hadn’t left to take a leak during “Moby Octopad” — to be honest, never one of my favorite songs on I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One — I’d probably be among the dead.'”
