I recently discovered that one of my co-workers is an Oils fan too.  We had 
been discussing schedules and I had told him that I was swapping a Thursday 
for a Friday so I could go to a concert.  I told him it was MO, and he said 
something noncommittal like "oh, cool".

An hour or so later we were digging in the -88 C deep freeze and he started 
into "there's gotta be one place left in this world" ...

The next time we rearranged a freezer it was This Arctic World.

The poor guy has about six albums, but has never been to a live show.  I'll 
convert him from fan to fanatic yet ...
