Burnie: We went to E3 one year. We rented a van and it was the first time
that Geoff and Gus met Matt.
So, I pointed out, "Hey, we're in Los Angeles. We're only 5 hours away from Vegas."
Gus goes, "I'm not going to Vegas."
I go, "What do you mean 'you're not going to Vegas'?"
And he gets SO fucking infuriated.
I'm like, "What's- what's going on? Why are you so mad about Vegas?"
He goes, "I'm not going to Vegas! Don't talk about Vegas!"
So we're in the Del Taco parking lot in like, Downtown LA.
Like right on Transvestite Alley.
I say, "Guys, look. I'm gonna say one last time: We got our Del Taco; we drive straight to Vegas."
So Gus says, "I swear to God, if you say Vegas one more time, I'm gettin' out of this van!"
I go, "Okay, fine, I give up. I will not mention Vegas for the rest of the night. I apologize."
Gus: In my mind, I was like, "He's testing me!" [laughter]
"I just said I would leave the van and he just said it!" [laughter]
I was like, "If I don't leave, he knows I'm a pussy.
"So I HAVE to leave!"
I remember I opened the van door and just walked out."
Burnie: Into the night.
And Matt was like, "Who the fuck is this guy?"
Gus: It was my first ever in LA. I walked a block down the street, realized my mistake.
This was a sketchy ass part of LA.
So I got a cab- I took a cab back to our hotel.
I packed all my shit and was like, "I'm flying back to Austin tonight."
[laughter] Gus: "Fuck this! I'm going home!"
Burnie: He left a note on the bed. Miles: Are you serious Gus?
Gus: I wrote, "See you in Austin, assholes!"
[laughter] Burnie: Asshole.
