Donation Fund for Josh
Hey all, many of you know that my brother Josh is in a pretty serious situation right now. Things haven't really gotten better for him yet either, in fact they've gotten worse. Today he started vomiting and nearly drowned in it because the nurses didn't come when he called. If he didn't have visitors at the time who physically propped him up, he really could have died. I honestly can't imagine throwing up with a broken neck, back, and hips. It hurts just to lie still for Josh. How much more so if convulsing and vomiting?
OK, the truth is that josh and his family could use some money. Things are tight and it takes a long time to get the worker's comp and it's up in air how much his health care will and won't cover. You know co-pays and all can be very high.
So – while he hasn't asked for it – I'm sure he would be very thankful if people did want to donate something to help them out. We're probably going to try to put together a benefit for him sometime in the near future too. I've first put this donation fund on the boysetsfire website and their myspace and so far the generosity of the bsf fans has been amazing and comforting to me. Thought I'd give some look machine fans a chance to join in the warmth.
This payment will be made to my email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll give him all the money you donate (minus the fees that paypal charges, like around 2% I think).
If you'd rather send a check (cash, euros, diamonds) or something like that. You can send it to me at

And that's why you put a link there! Sorry about that. What hospital is he at?

He was working on the roof of a building at a construction site. He stepped on a loose board (was supposed to be nailed down and was not) and he fell 25 feet to the ground. It is a true miracle that he is not dead, or paralyzed.

I want to know who the Anchovy Activists are. Are they related to the Artichoke Artisans?
