See if you can get a cross-section of Cincinnatians discussing the hidden meaning of the song "Gold Star For Robot Boy".

I believe it was written late one night, as Robert Pollard (Robot Boy) was trying to get one of his slightly more sober compatriots to go buy him some damn chili.

Perhaps a cross-section of Cincinnatians reading these lyrics off a teleprompter?

If i waited for you to signify
The moves that I should make
I'd be on the take
Gold star for robot boy well then that's OK

If i waited for you to show me all the actions I should take
Would I get my break?
Gold star for robot boy

And it's one thing
And it's something to do the robot boy yeah

If i waited for lessons in true confessions
That could take all day
But I'm here to stay
Gold star for robot boy
Well then that's my move

Well then that's my move
Well then that's my move
But it's one thing
Yeah it's something to do the robot boy yeah

If I waited for you to signify
The moves that I should make
I'd be on the take
Gold star for robot boy
Well then that's okay

As an alternative, try to develop an oral history of GBV appearances at Southgate House: "At which show was Pollard the drunkest?"

Hey, no charge for these great ideas. I'd just like to get two free tickest to the World Premiere.
