Gira: 'Sup dude!! It's Michael Gira, former Swans member and current Angels of Light dude. I run Young God, etc.
eYe: Sigh... I know who you are, Michael; you called yesterday.
Gira: Hahah, oh yeah... weird.
eYe: So, what is it that you want today?
Gira: Oh, uh, nothing. Just kinda relaxing, doing laundry -- that sort of thing... A friend called earlier, so we made plans to go to SUBWAY® later. I've never had their toasted Meatball Marinara yet, and I go practically every other day! Haha! What are you up to, dude?
eYe: Sigh... Look Michael, you know I respect you and everyone loves your music -- I can't wait for the August 21 release of We Are Him -- but you can't just keep--
eYe: Uh, Michael?
Gira: ...Hahahah!! Oh shit, man!! FUCKING INSANE!!
eYe: WHAT IS IT MICHAEL!?!?
Gira: Dude, turn to channel 4!! You won't fucking believe this!!
eYe: Okay, uh... what am I looking at here?
Gira: Dude, look at that dog go!! He keeps chasing his own tail, around and around -- hahahah!! Fucked up, man!
eYe: MICHAEL!! HONESTLY!! This is getting weird! You can't keep calling here every night, reintroducing yourself as the "former Swans member and current Angels of Light dude."
eYe: Look, I'm sorry. I've tried to be nice about this, but this is just getting out of hand man.
Gira: Well -- sniff sniff -- don't you want to know why I called?
eYe: Sigh... Yes, Michael. I would love to know why you called.
Gira: Dude, I BOOKED US A TOUR!!
eYe: Michael, why the FUCK did you do that?
Gira: I don't know... thought it'd be cool -- plus, I was itching to get out of the States. What's the problem, dude?
eYe: Well, MICHAEL FUCKING GIRA, I told you YESTERDAY that we can't fucking play any shows right now because of all the family obligations we have, and you promised me that you would fucking talk to me first before doing--
Gira: Dude, sorry sorry sorry! Jeez... I know you told me about the family obligations, but seriously, this'll be a fucking blast. And I promise that HAHHAHHAHAHAHHHAHAH!!!
eYe: Fucking A Michael! What the fuck is going on?
Gira: Are you watching this!? Hahahah! That dog sounds like it's actually saying "I LOVE YOU!" "AIII!! WUFF!! YOOO!!!!"
