I thought mouth wounds were supposed to heal quickly. This fucking gum cut is killing me.
That Filipino Steve Perry impersonator guy that sings for them now is kind of amazing in a way, though.
Apparently they are playing Honolulu tomorrow
Unless you were trying to make the point that all the other members of Journey minus Steve Perry are not Journey. In which case then carry on I guess.
I don't feel that's unreasonable. If Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland come to town with some wacky Filipino standing in for Sting, I'm going to call bullshit on them headlining as The Police.
This is an argument that disintegrates very quickly, though.
Which of the 4235 different lineups of King Crimson actually counts as King Crimson?
Answer: Who cares? King Crimson sucked/s.
Insert Donald Sutherland GIF here.
I think you can make the argument that Steve Perry was Journey, as they were always a frontman-driven band, driven more by vocals than anything else.
I saw a Journey cover band once. I was pissed when they didn't play "Carry On Wayward Son".
I saw Journey back in September. They are awesome, and yeah the new singer is incredible. I don't really care about the original lineup like some of you apparently do. I mainly wanted to see Schon, to be honest. He was amazing, of course! But the songs are note perfect, and even the tone of the vocals is fantastic. Plus, he's got good energy. He's NOT a kid though. He's like 40-something. I add that because a lot of people think he's much younger.
As a certified Journey expert, by virtue of having a 2-volume Journey scrapbook when I was in high school and also playing lead guitar in Voyager, a Journey cover band, around the same time, I declare that Schon is pretty much the only indispensable member of Journey and in fact is the only member who hasn't been replaced at one time or another.
And I say this while confessing that I briefly had Steve Perry's "Separate Ways" haircut*. Those were dark days, my friend.
* I let it grow out this year.
His eleventeen ex-wives beg to differ.
Note that I said "member of Journey" and not "member of his household."
Isn't he marrying the White House party crasher chick? I have to say I've lost a little respect for him since then.
RSharp, you play guitar. Are you able to play that 16th-note lick in the middle of the first verse of Don't Stop Believin'? I've never been able to. I suck.
I'm looking forward to hearing "We Built This City" tomorrow. For our high school graduation or variety show or something, we sang a version as "We Built This City on Heart and Soul." I think written by one of the students. God, that was awful.
Holy crap, what kind or sorcery does the battery in my Nintendo DS use? I lost the charger nearly 4 years ago and while I don't play with the DS on a regular basis, I have used it for a few hours at a time here and there. If I remember correctly, it's rated for about 15 hours or so of use on one charge, but I wouldn't have ever thought the charge would hold for this long.
So you're saying you're a Satanist? That's cool,man. People can believgbe in anybody they wanht.
I believe that the work that I do is evil.
Never tried it. I can play that fast, yeah, but....hmmm....the tab says it's on two strings. It might be tricky to play it while keeping the notes sounding as clean as he does, but I think with a bit of practice, I could do it yeah. In any case, I agree with you that Schon is the REAL heart of Journey.
Tell us what you do, and we'll be the judge.
It is quoted in the post above mine.
Please stop suggesting related products for me Amazon, I'm just not interested. But, yea... I guess I'll take one of those...
and two of those...
As a lawyer myself, I try not to judge, but I will say this: At least you don't do insurance defense. :)
The one that recorded Discipline.
Swish your mouth with salt water twice a day. It'll numb the pain, fight infection, and aid healing.
So...two and a half weeks, and the pain is still just as bad as ever. Called my GP/internist back and her advice is "call the gyno back pronto"; the gynecologist cannot possibly squeeze me in for an emergency appt for six days.
I am just about immune to painkillers at this point. Waiting another six days with no course of action and basically no relief apart from a heating pad, which ties me to one place the whole time, is an upsetting thought. :/
Upon my oath I am not a violent man, but if I or a loved one of mine were in a situation like that I'd go find a medical professional and punch them in the goddamn face* until they admitted me or my loved one to a goddamn hospital and got me/them some goddamn medical attention.
* talk forcefully at them
By which I mean, goddamn that sucks and I hope it's sorted soon. I'd offer a hug but I'm in Norway, so here, have the sentiment of one and a like of sympathy.
Because plaintiffs' personal injury lawyers are such paragons?
Which ones are you using? I presume you know that aspirin, advil and tylenol all have slightly different effects. and one may be more effective than another. Did your doctor prescribe you something for pain?
Advil and Tylenol are both doing exactly nothing, even in double the maximum dose. And I was on Vicodin, but that ran out most of a week ago and I'm uneasy about requesting more narcotics.
IANAD, but I'd give Aspirin a try -- it works significantly differently from those two. My wife sometimes finds it to be more effective for menstrual cramps ... which of course are not what you are experiencing, but maybe it will help you? Note that Aspirin is a blood thinner, so if you are bleeding somewhere better to not take it as it will hinder the healing of the wound.
Thank you. Any little bit of advice helps. :)
Thoro, have an internet hug. <transatlantic internet hug>
On a painkiller note, my doctor told me that ibuprofen and paracetamol taken together have a synergistic effect: each enhances the other. I've gone through quite a lot of painkiller combinations in my quest for less pain in the noggin. It may be worth a shot?
Naproxen (Aleve) is also worth a try.
Fuck that shit, if they can't see you for another six days, REQUEST MORE REAL PAIN MEDS ALREADY.
It is my birthday and my right ear is hella clogged and how am I going to hear people talking to me at dinner tonight arghghghghgh
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RABBIT-WITH-HAT!
I find it funny when my mother tries to make me jealous of the Christmas gifts she gets from her students. I used to care when I was younger because it was a situation where she would show me what she got and then I'd get nothing for Christmas myself/a gift in a trash bag unwrapped. Now that I'm older, I can just shake my head back and forth in a sort of...pity? I think that's what the word is.
Many Happy Returns,
Sjofn~! <3 I wish you all the cake. Hohoho.
Uhhh, so reeling a bit from that thing that were a three day affair...thing. Still sore, a bits. On the plus side, got to indulge in my inner eggroll snobbery. And that pork. God that was delicious. Am going to revise my previous findings, honeydew >>> coconut pearl milk tea.
That's exactly what I said! Very perceptive, good man.
You should begin all your posts like this.
Speak with Bread, I don't know what kind of insurance or medical plan you have, but you might want to look into getting a referral to another physician or talk to your hospital/medical plan's patient advocate or ombudsman. You need care.
I can read between the lines, lady!
Emergencies aren't things to be scheduled a week later, they are emergencies. Plus you have been having this pain for over two weeks already, this isn't something from just today or last night or something. I don't get it.
Separate names with a comma.
