    Todd: I'm the same way. I hate country, except for Johny Cash
    Matt: Yeah, yeah. The older country is good. But the newer, I don't like the newer stuff.
    Todd: Yeah, how expensive are CD's in your country?
    Matt: Well, a brand new CD is probably between about 15 and 20 dollars, yeah, but you can find used CD's from anything to a dollar to, you know, 20 dollars, I guess, depending, depending on the CD. So you can find cheap CD's.
    Todd: Wow, that's pretty cheap. Do you play a musical instrument?
    Matt: No, I don't, although when I was a kid I played the piano and a little bit of the quitar, but I've long since forgotten all of that.

    stop playing it.

    Matt: I go, I really enjoy going to concerts, but I like to go to small venues. Small shows. I don't like those big stadium shows where you need binoculars just to see the stage.
    Todd: Yeah, I agree. And the last question, most importantly, do you sing in the shower?
    Matt: Of course I do, yeah! Every chance I get.
    Todd: Wow, what kind of songs do you sing?
    Matt: Oh, wow! I guess anything that's in my head, the last thing I heard I guess.
    Todd: Can you sing something right now?
    Matt: I don't think so. This isn't a shower.
