    jdub, I had an up and down experience at IT as well. My relationship with my now ex-wife was really falling apart. I missed a bunch of music, as well. She was in nag mode, don’t feel good mode, wah, wah, wah mode. Listened to ‘Lizards’ and the Tower Jam on the bunny from the truck. Plus some other stuff.

    One thing I really loved about Indio that I don’t love about the enormous east coast festies: You could walk around with ease, great sound all over the field. Two things I did not experience at IT.

    Way to go FB, good tickets were available for all the shows if you were alert.

    Collapse is a very good book, IMO. I haven’t read anything else by Diamond though.

    Haiti is an effing mess. I’ve read about a lot of violence and it is just going to get worse. All the media from the major networks are there but we can”t get medical resources to the people that need it. It just doesn’t make sense. I know that the U.S. and others are trying to get help there and it’s complicated with the limited number of runways to fly into etc., but how the fuck did all these TV crews get there? All of these recent tragedies, especially Katrina and Haiti, and the difficulty the U.S gov’t has in getting organized enough to help people makes me very sad. I hope I never have to rely on our gov’t for help. I love our country very very much, but it makes me sad that we can’t get shit done anymore.

  4. KWL Says:

    good questions LB. From what I’ve heard, other nations (chiefly Cuba) have had a far more effective relief effort–sending in doctors on the ground, setting up field hospitals, etc. But of course we can’t hear about good things that Cuba does, that’s not how we do! 😉

  5. KWL Says:

    nothin’ like a little cross-a-lope to get my day going today.

    have a great weekend folks! I’m sure I’ll check back in sometime during today’s 22 minutes of football action 🙂

  6. jdub Says:

    We have no problem getting an entire armada half way around the world into remote sections of the middle east, taking over towns and rebuilding cities to our liking but can’t get major operations for our close neighbor who was already beaten and just got kicked in the balls and punched in the face. I say our country should and maybe will rebuild Haiti and nurture a friend in need.

  7. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    I was watching the local news here in Boston last night and the ABC station raised over $500K yesterday just from called in donations. Unreal!

    People really want to help out, seemingly now more than ever in my memory. Maybe all of the stress we have had in our own country is finally causing people to realize that the best way to help ourselves is to help others. We can only hope…

  8. Little Buddy Says:

    I did read the Cuba let up on the restrictions that typically prevent US planes from flying in their air space, which helps. Cuba has a very large number of dr’s per citizen so it doesn’t surprise me that they’ve been most successful.

  9. Mr. Completely Says:

    it took nine months to a year to deploy those troops overseas.

    moving a reporter and camera crew in is easy. That’s the equivalent of moving a single doctor and a nurse in with enough supplies to help about 10 people. Apples and oranges.

    Fast mobilization is hard. mass logistics is harder. people are being helped, but the scope of the problem is vast, so more people are without help.

    for instance, the port au prince airport was clogged and nonfunctional due to lack of air traffic control. US Air Force special forces team lands, takes over, and now it’s running at capacity.

    There are a lot of stories like that. The US Military and government actually are helping. So is Cuba and other latin american and caribbean governments. But no government anywhere in the world can deal effectively with a catastrophe of this scope.

    We don’t like to admit that some things are beyond the capacity of humankind to deal with.

    All of these recent tragedies, especially Katrina and Haiti, and the difficulty the U.S gov’t has in getting organized enough to help people makes me very sad.

    ^What do the population of New Orleans 9th ward and Haiti have in common?

    That will answer your questions.

  11. Robear Says:

    Good pt.s by Mr. C.

    Combine that with history, economics, and social barriers, and you get a more clear picture.

  12. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    shit, I have a hard enough time getting my crew organized at shows, can you imagine the logistics that go into prepping for such a large operation?

    I was listening to npr last night and they were talking with the guy in charge of getting the airport back in order. they only have 12 parking spots at the airport and are running the operations out of a back room since the tower was destroyed. the whole thing is bigger than the local authorities can handle so it took a while for everything to get under control

  13. Robear Says:

    Last night, I had the Beatles re-master’s on shuffle on the iPod. What an incredible musical journey, what a catalog. As a late bloomer to the Beatles (beyond their more popular stuff), I’m just amazed, flabbergasted. I also had the discography in front of me, so it was extra cool to glance at what year the song and sound was coming from.

    What’s everyone’s favorite Beatles’ Album, or albums? Tracks?

  14. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Phish- MSG- pay-per- view. $50 a pop…all proceeds to Haiti.

  15. Mr. Completely Says:

    also: Miner posting the “canada” map as the picture for the download = funny

  16. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    blame Canada!

  17. Luther Justice Says:

    Good morning blackboard,

    My aunt and uncle were working at a mission in Haiti when the earthquake hit. We have received only 1 email since that day. That was on Thurs. and it sounded horrible. The lost most of the buildings in their compound and were starting to get over run by locals who were bringing them their injured & dead. They had no medical supplies to treat the injured.

    My family is just waiting to hear from them again.

  18. Robear Says:

    LJ, you and your fam. are in our thoughts and prayers.

  19. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    wow, best wishes, Luther. I’m sure they are doing everything they can to help folks out.

  20. Pencilneck Says:

    Miner Love for the hosers! Yay!

  21. Mr. Completely Says:

    Revolver, Abbey Road, about half the White Album. “I’ve Got a Feeling” except for the comically bad guitar solo.

    Plus Lady Madonna and Hey Bulldog…

    just off the top of my head

  22. Mr. Completely Says:

    @Luther – blessings to your family.

  23. Luther Justice Says:

    Thanks everyone. If anyone can survive this its them. This whole thing has been surreal to say they least.

  24. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Revolver, Sgt. Peppers..

  25. Pencilneck Says:

    Best wishes for your family LJ.
