A few months ago my girlfriend and I were sitting in a darkened theater waiting for a showing of "Monsters Inc." (No flames, please! The movie wasn't so bad and it only cost $2.) There was music playing softly in the background, and I eventually realized it was "Jimmy Sharmin's Boxers." I was astounded. I was shocked even more when the next song was "Bakerman," followed by "Who Can Stand in the Way"! Whoever controlled the sound system must have been an Oils fan -- and in little old Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
