Steve: You are in your house working on some music when the phone rings.
Zack: I wait for Courtney to pick up.
Steve: She doesn't answer it.
Zack: I sigh and take the heroin needle out of my arm and answer the phone, GRAND CENTRAL?
Steve: It's Eazy-E. He says, "Yo what is up, home slice?"
Zack: Okay, first of all, he would not talk like that.
Steve: That's 90's rap slang!
Zack: Don't be racist, just have him talk like a normal human being.
Steve: Fine. You set me up on this one. "Hey, Kurt Cobain, how are you doing? I need your help with something."
Zack: "Sure, home slice. Anything for my main home slice. What is up?"
Steve: He says that this dude named Edward Barlow he met at the AIDS hospital needs to talk to some investigators.
Zack: Kurt Cobain jumps at the chance to spend his Saturday at an AIDS hospital. He packs up his heroin, acoustic guitar, and magic reagents.
Steve: You arrive at the Boris Karloff AIDS hospital. There are AIDS patients moaning and sad all over the place. You find Eazy-E and Left Eye waiting for you.
Zack: What up, home slices?
Steve: Eazy-E says "This dude is about to die from AIDS. We have got to talk to him right now."
Zack: Is there a bathroom I can cook up in first? I really need to take the edge off.
Steve: No! He's dying right now!
Zack: Alright. Jeez. I will go with Eazy-E to see his AIDS buddy.
