Ow, Holly. Hope it gets better soon.
Avatar Wed. 8/6/14 10:20pm coelacanth:

Holly That sucks.
-I got wasp-stung a week & 1/2 ago on each knee (where i had holes in my jeans) & my left palm. Only the left leg got a rash like that. ...I put colloidal silver on the stings,after squeezing them,within a 1/2 hour. Maybe it helped?
Avatar Wed. 8/6/14 10:22pm Holly in NC:

Oh, and everything @nickybones said re. Jesse's Yo La Tengo book + gazillion.

@efd - re disco shoes - Candies for me. And if Amanda N. is still here I share her not-disco fondness for Dr. Scholls. WOODEN SOLES ONLY

OK, Perky & I going for promised walk
Avatar Wed. 8/6/14 10:26pm Holly in NC:

@coelacanth - Oh my gosh! Are you OK?

Squeezed immediately, and also later :-( I've not tried colloidal silver, have been using apple cider vinegar (which is great, for about 2 hours at a time) - Silver's a great tip, thank you! Will not drink so I don't turn blue ;-)

First to comment on Gone Shootin'!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/6/14 10:29pm efd:

indeed, Matt!
Avatar Wed. 8/6/14 10:31pm coelacanth:

Holly i'm okay! The rash was gone in a day or 2,& the bumps & itching was over by a week. It looks like you had a greater reaction than i did. I really don't know if the silver helped.
... (ps) i don't think i'm blue! And i use a very potent one.(1100 ppm).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/6/14 10:32pm brian:

At first I was surprised to learn Evan played drums in an AC/DC cover band a decade ago. But after a bit, realized it wasn't so odd at all.

That drummer's special a couple weeks back was really fun and enlightening... I went back and listened to the first installment on Mandl's show... And hope you do a third installment on Irwin's show (or somewhere) soon. Really great radio, I'll be re-listening to those...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/6/14 10:33pm Kat in Chicago:

@efd as someone who now also has to utilize a dump button occasionally I apologize on behalf of my friend Tall Pat. oops. I was listening on mobile and reception crapped out for a few minutes so I missed the actual tune.

@Holly YIKES. Damn wasp. I hope that clears up ASAP.
  Wed. 8/6/14 10:36pm Andrew Fetter:

Damn, I completely spaced out on that drummer special. I'll have to check out the archive later this week. Thanks for the reminder. As a fellow drummer, I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/6/14 10:39pm Matt F:

Evan- Sam & Kris and I were recently reminiscing about the time when we were playing Shot Down In Flames and Paul, eyes closed, was singing Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be, and we were all looking at each other and Paul didn't realize the discrepancy until we got to the chorus and his eyes popped open in bewilderment and we all fell apart laughing. One of many, many comedic highlights from Dirt Cheap rehearsals. And Brian, totally agreed on those drummer shows w/Irwin and Dave (and Dennis).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/6/14 10:47pm Greg from Bloomfield:

  Wed. 8/6/14 10:47pm ?:

@holly TRIPLE YIKES I missed that @coelacanth got stung 3x.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/6/14 11:02pm efd:

Matt, it's certainly true that there were very few dull moments at Dirt Cheap practices. And shows, for that matter.
