who the fuck is Tony???

on the live version of "follow me around" (famous toronto 10-17-00 show), Thom says, "did you lie to us tony? we thought you were different, you know now we're not so sure... "

who is tony, it's not Danza or Tiger, nor Braxton, Kukoc, etc (honestly i could go on here, but i think you follow the pattern)

is he talking about stalkers and clowns? or is it death/trance state, despair, misery, self-pity, inneptitude, impotence (figuratively), illiteracy, melancholy, what?

---------
I feel absolutely nothing
the words you know are out of ink
follow me around...

yes, I love how Thom makes references to the advertisement billboards throughout the show

"this next song is called 'idioteque' and it's brought to you courtesy of microsoft"

motion picture soundtrack sponsored by the Disney Corporation... i forget which song now, but he sarcastically says "this one is brought to you courtesy of compassionate conservatism" (i think exit or dollars and cents)

In order to write this next song we drew up a deal with Nike.

Thank you very much.

And from numerous interviews I gather that Thom has a special bucket of bile reserved in his heart for Herr Blair.
