    Just got word that an old work friend was on his motorcycle last weekend and got rolled up by an SUV – on her cell phone.

    Lasted five days in ICU, but passed yesterday.

    Wear a helmet if you ride, and look twice, it might save a life!

    A little down here in Toledo ๐Ÿ™

    My condolences sneven.

    I really hope things start to look up soon. Losing a friend can be rough I’m sure.

    Sending some good vibes your way.

    Best of luck

    Really sorry to hear that. May love see you through this difficult time.

  6. sneven Says:

    Thanks for the kind words everyone… I’m a bit shaken.

    Cutting work for the rest of the day, gonna fire up some Cornell 77 Dead, cut the grass, and pound some brews.

    It can’t rain all the time…

    Sorry to hear that Sneven.

  11. Stupendous Says:

    awesome little house! I would never leave..

  12. gavinsdad Says:

    Sneven – my condolences on your loss. I am sorry to hear about that.

    Garlic – Mr. C recommends a much nicer (and tastier) option…my hippie ass girlfriend from years back used to chop the cloves and shove em into sections of an orange then eat that. i did it and i kid you not if you dont have bread in you first it hurts. good for colds tho

    (not tom) Marshall – thanks for your input on the speaker wire. i’m in and out here on the board with work etc. I got the 16 gauge spool. and yeah, i know i got beat on the price but it wasn’t too terrible. i just got a stack of albums to add to my collection…looking forward to playing some of them.

  13. voopa Says:

    Sorry to hear, sneven. I’ve lost a couple good friends to motorcycle accidents, and it’s never easy. We’re here if you want to chat or vent…

  14. HarryHood Says:

    “It can’t rain all the time…..”

    Sneven, My favorite line from the Crow……… It holds a lot of truth in rough times. As someone who has had a few motorcycles, an accident, and more than a few close calls, you and your friend are in my thoughts…… We are here for you bro.

  15. lastwaltzer Says:

    gavin’sdad bring up a great point, got to have something on your stomach first or you will enter a world of pain.

  16. garretc Says:

    Man, if only wearing a helmet and looking twice were enough, no, you need everybody else to look twice too, and we all know what happens when you need to rely on everybody to do the right thing…

    That’s real shitty, sneven, sorry to hear about that…

    sorry for your loss sneven, sending kynd vibez your way

    Marshall –

    you should get a kick out of this. so i recently made what i am now thinking was the mistake of getting a home theater in a box for my basement ghetto-fab man cave (not finished properly). it was actually a really good price on a Panny system w/ BD player/receiver combo.

    anyway i’m thinking it may have been a mistake due to the proprietary speaker wire hookup thingies that connect to the rear of the main unit, as opposed to the usual + and – ends. here’s what happened:

    a couple weeks ago i go to watch a Blu-Ray and notice a total lack of bass. i lean in towards the sub and realize it’s not putting anything out. after inspecting the wire running from the sub to the receiver, it was literally gnawed open and the copper fibers were torn and frayed (holla) wide open.

    i then saw a glue pad mouse trap laying two inches over, which has been up top near my basement ceiling. what must’ve happened is the poor mouse got stuck in the trap, fell to the floor, and the only potential food source within its reach was the speaker wire.

    first i call Panasonic to see how i can order just an extra subwoofer, since the wire to the sub actually attaches INSIDE the sub cabinet, and not simply at the rear of it. they say “sorry sir, you would need to either purchase an entire new system or send the whole thing in for repair, paying shipping and paying repair costs if it’s not a defect in manufacturing” (which it clearly wasn’t).

    so i say fuck that, and did some surgery that seems to have worked. i cut the wire clean through where it was still solid on both sides of the gnawed wire, then took a short run of speaker cable i had laying around and attached its copper fibers to the fibers of the sub’s wire. that HTIB wire is sooooo cheap though, it’s like 8-10 weak strands of copper fiber in each wire. i practically had to wrap each individual fiber around the better wire’s fiber.

    long story short, those HTIB systems can do the job in basic situations, but man is it bad news if you break any part of it. i already miss my old HT rig from my bachelor days that i sold.

    Hmmm…just communicated w/someone who had some Greek extras…fast talker who claims to have worked in promotion for years and w/Phish since ’97. His plan is to FedEx me a copy of his tix and driver’s license, but I would have to send cash back w/Fed Ex…

    Sounds OK, but I don’t get paid until Friday. His email said he had “6 tickets” not specifying which night, but on the phone he said he had 4 available for Fri and Sat (didn’t inquire about Thu). He said he’d call back Friday to get the ball rolling again, but we’ll see.

    Has anyone else dealt with this dude? Looks like he sent the same email to everyone on the Ticket Exchange Board that’s looking for Greeks. Said he has Telluride tix too. …

  20. Stupendous Says:

    KP

    i got one of those HTIB from LG

    decent sound have had it for 3 years now…

    The DVD player sucks though, it doesnt like to play the majority of my discs…

  21. Chuck D Says:

    1. fast talker = smelly
    clue: simple characterization, maybe true, maybe not

    2. claims to have worked in promotion for years and w/Phish since โ€˜97 = irrelevant.
    clue: why does he have to include his past? you dont care who he is, you just want his tickets. its odd that he chose to associate himself with phish considering phish outsourced all of their work…

    3. His plan is to FedEx me a copy of his tix and driverโ€™s license, but I would have to send cash back w/Fed Ex = you giving someone money without immediately receiving tickets.
    big clue: would you give someone cash in the lot if they promised their buddy on the other side of the lot was holding on to the tickets and he’ll just be a minute…?

    me no likey; but, play it safe and hope things work out for you

  22. Chuck D Says:

    and just because he sends you a photo ID doesn’t mean much, its easy to get a copy of some random dudes ID…

    anyone who works with a notery, at a bank, or a title company, etc, would have access. not to mention the ease of making a fake ID these days and making a xerox; you’d have no idea.

  23. halcyon Says:

    I spoke with that guy last week. His initials areT M perhaps??? It is a scam. Do not fall for it. I didn’t return his calls after I spoke with him. He got our email addresses from the ticket exchange. He says he works in promotion and does the necessary things to make the venue look pretty. He also told me that I sounded young and that he did this in 97 and he is now an architect for the Marriot in Miami. Those who work in the Telluride production do not have hard tickets in hand.

    he told me it was C.O.D. really? who does c.o.d. anymore. Those that do will charge a 100.00 upfront charge to make it c.o.d and that is where they make their money.

  24. Stupendous Says:

    Yeah Chuck is right, sounds sketch
    Im sure theres a better way to do that…

  25. Stupendous Says:

    there is no tride tix is there?
