The Seattle Pop Conference jams to a series of panel discussions and scholarly presentations, but not to Stephen's amazing paper. (2:20)

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Stephen: THANK YOU, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

WELCOME TO "THE REPORT,"

EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

[AUDIENCE CHANTING "STEPHEN"]

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

OH, NATION, ANYBODY WHO WATCHES

THIS SHOW KNOWS THAT I AM A HUGE

PLAYER IN ROCK 'N' ROLL.

SO NATURALLY I AM FAN OF

SEATTLE'S EXPERIENCE MUSIC

PROJECT.

THE ROCK 'N' ROLL MUSEUM THAT

KEEPS THE MUSIC ALIVE WITH THEIR

ANNUAL CONFERENCE.

IT'S A WEEKEND LONG MUSIC

FESTIVAL IN THE TRADITION OF

WOODSTOCK, BUT UNSTEAD OF

JAMMING TO YOUR FAVORITE BAND,

YOU'RE JAMING TO A SERIES OF

PANEL DISCUSSIONS AND

PRESENTATIONS OF SCHOLARLY

PAPERS.

YOU KNOW THEIR MOTTO: LESS ROCK,

MORE TALK.

WELL, THIS YEAR'S CONFERENCE HAS

SO MANY AMAZING DISSERTATIONS

LIKE, WHEN BOBBY WENT BOB, THE

ASSASSINATION OF R.F.K. AND THE

COLLAPSE OF RING-A-DING URBAN

MASCULINITY, AND I LOVE A PRIDE

PARADE, TEMPORARY SPACES AND

SPLIT SIDES KITSCH AMONG LGBP

MARCHING BANDS.

[LAUGHTER]

OF COURSE, I WAS INTO LGBT

MARCHING BANDS WAY BEFORE THEIR

KITSCH BECAME POLITICIZED IN

TEMPORARY SPACES, AND YET,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, ONCE AGAIN

THEY HAVE REJECTED MY WORK, SO

IT IS TIME FOR MY AWARD-LACKING

SEGMENT, WHO IS NOT HONORING ME

NOW.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

ONCE AGAIN MY SCHOLARLY PAPER

DID NOT MAKE THE CUT THIS YEAR.

THEY HAVE REJECTED SELF-LOVE IN

AN ELEVATOR, APPOLONIAN IMAGES

OF HEDONISM, EROTICISM AND THE

MECHANIZED URBAN LANDSCAPE IN

POST-COMEBACK AEROSMITH.

IF YOU CAN BELIEVE THAT.

THEY SAID THAT MY ANTHOLOGY WAS

FALSE AND THEY COULDN'T HEAR A

SICKLE.

ANYWAY, I'LL READ IT TO MY

MUSICAL GUEST TONIGHT OR
