a bit wordy... but nicely done. I half expected another haiku.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Solid write-up. I'm going to add links to your article and the auctions as well.

Also, I spread all the info along to the shnfamily this evening.  I sent a mass PM to everyone so it wouldn't get lost in the main chatroom.  Hopefully we can get a few more donations (or bidders) out of that.

The Pollock Alpine 09 N1 FRAMED Print Poster is up to $152.50!

donated by a 'pauger.  but, ill allow 'paugers to remain anonymous until they decide not to be. 


the auction is awesome.  im not much of a poster guy, is there really an artist who calls him/herself "not pollock?"


yes, "not pollock" is legit.  his identity is a mystery to most (including myself), im sure someone knows who he is.  reading walterfredo's little person not pollock story is worth the time to register yourself @ phishposters alone. check the not pollock thread in the artist chat section.  i may be exaggerating, but....  no, its epic.

appreciate the plugs from you and yemblog, and whomever else has put something up - thanks.

if you really want to mail me a check, you can pm me for my address.  i will deposit it in my bank and then transfer it to the fundraiser paypal account. 


which gets us to the real point here - what should i do w/ the $$ that we've raised so far? 

a.) buy him something to get him online as a "gift" from the community?
b.) just give him the $$ and let him buy what he wants? 

i tend to think that an ipad is probably the ideal way for him to get online while layed up on his back in a hospital bed.  but i dont know if he agrees.  and maybe he doesnt have much use for a wifi ipad later on.  so maybe just giving him the $$ is the best idea?
