All Lit Up

B: Toward the end of ROX #35 (“J's Summer Vacation”) there's a brief shot, in extreme close-up, of a cigarette lighter being flicked into flame. There's no explanation given, but it's followed by a rousing improvisational song, inspired by the preceding Bible reading.

The lighter motif first appeared in ROX #34 and is repeated throughout many episodes in our second season. It was our way of signalling that point in the taping of each episode when the crew would take a break for some herbal refreshments. We weren't quite ready to show the act itself on television — yet.

I'm not sure that any viewers ever picked up on our secret signal.
