You Get Lucky Sometimes
You are looking at David Scheid, Dinosaur Jr tour manager (well, last year he was). He just lived through a 5.2 earthquake in Japan. That must be big, his hotel was swaying. David is on tour with Broken Social Scene who are from Canada. I wonder if he's getting paid in Canadian dollars. They are worth more than the US dollar. He could make a bundle on the foreign exchange market if he is. Dave lives in LA so eventually he will need greenbacks. Probably no time for high finance on the tour though. The band is like 16 people or maybe even more. Probably takes an hour and a half just to give out the per diems every day. If he's handing out weak US dollars it probably takes two.
