- John Flansburgh:
This evening (2/18/03) we are posting on theymightbegiants.com, which has been newly renovated and refreshed for your surfing pleasure, a highly uncopyright-cleared remix that was made by the fine folks at Kendal Mintcake. They have applied some twenty-first century notions of copyright to our track S-E-X-X-Y. Get it while you can because the cease-and-desist orders are just minutes away. This is just a fun little blast of sound. Hope you dig it. We take no responsibility, and this conversation never happened.
