"Say, Linda, how did you get to be a Glen Hansard groupie years before Once and a big fan of 'Devil Town' before it became integral to the first season of Friday Night Lights?"

"I saw tape of Glen performing this song [not this performance, which starts at the one-minute mark, and without Marketa, who's a great help here], and I wrote immediately back to the person who sent it to me and said, 'I do not intend to watch that clip over and over, as you said I would. I intend to gradually merge with that clip at an atomic level until it and I become one.' At that point, the die was largely cast."

"It really does."
