I wish, Dean...

clearly if someone has to ask what a life experience has to do with music, then he/she doesn't deserve to have it bloody explained to him/her. it's called sharing... opening up a bit. it's about bringin something real to a digital online electronic informal setting. i agree, if you don't like it, don't read it. and just to prove you wrong, i can link it to the song "alive again." how's that?

Hey: we're all Idaho fans but here to chat about whatever, tell stories etc. It's nice to get into peoples lives a little. If it's dull: skip it. I prefer posts a little random and personal to some of the pointless negative non posts we sometimes get deluged with.
How about this:
Does anyone have a memory of listening to Idaho/music in an absolutely Idylic setting? With a beautiful girl in your lap, halfway up a mountain looking at a beautiful sunset etc??

damn straight. and in terms of childhood injuries, i could write several books on my own. that would really makes this message board "ridicules", as Enough says.

RE: holiday memories | from hguoneDec 17 2003 - 23:11

really, then why don't you do everyone a favor and go back to them?

RE: holiday memories | from enoughDec 17 2003 - 22:21

this message board has gotten quite ridicules. what the hell does the last story have to do with the fabulous sounds of idaho? there are plenty of chat rooms and message boards for group therapy...

one of my fondest holiday memories happened during my freshman year at university. my grandmother had been very sick for a long time. some sort of cancer. on christmas eve my father decided it was time that his mother's suffering would end. she died late into the night and we all spent our first christmas without her. i'm not fond because she died, obviously. two days later my oldest brother got married and it was an amazing show of strength and courage on my dad's end. he was so brilliant through all the emotional ups and downs. they were 4 amazing days that brought us closer as a family forever.

I have a similar story. In fourth grade, I was wrestling with one of my stepbrothers in our swimming pool. He accidentally shoved my face into the edge of the pool (very hard brick), and there went my two front teeth, both broken in half. Luckily, I got replacement teeth within the next few days. I actually just got the permanent adult crowns today, now that my teeth aren't growing any more. What a coincidence.

more proof that women are evil

I had two sisters, 6 and 8 years older than me. They used to hold me down and put ticks in my hair.

One christmas I got the palm of my hand gashed pretty bad on a broken ceramic serving bowl. My sisters told me to go to my mom's dresser and get some of her perfume and spray it on the cut to make it better.


RE: holiday memories | from mplasterDec 16 2003 - 14:00

man, siblings rule. when i was 8, one day my older sister apparently became very annoyed by the fact that i kept trying to sit up on the arm of the couch next to her. now, this same end of the sofa was about a foot from the wall of the living room, which had a big red-brick fireplace in it. after remounting the arm of the couch a few times - my sisters nudging elbows obviously not getting the message through to me - she finally snapped and full-on shoved my head and body off the edge of the couch, face first right towards the fireplace. i face-planted (or mouth-planted, actually) directly into the corner of one of the bricks. two front teeth. yay.

but here's the great part, though: it didn't knock my front teeth out. i think part of my upper lip must have cushioned the impact, so after seeing a dentist we were told that what it did was, in effect, "kill" the teeth. all the nerves and vessels feeding it more-or-less "died" and my teeth slowly started turning this weird, decaying grey color. for some reason, the dentist advised against removing them immediately.. i guess maybe to let the gums heal up again. maybe. either way, the result was that i had to wait until the teeth had almost fully died until they extracted them.

i don't remember it being as gross and foul as it sounds; allowing your teeth to just sit there and decay in your mouth. i just remember feeling really weird at school having these two grey front teeth. i learned not to smile in pictures after that. then after i think almost a month or so, they took them out, which then left me with no front teeth for quite a while. sadly, however, none of this took anytime near christmas.

oh well. sorry for the long story.

RE: holiday memories | from cDec 16 2003 - 10:36

word. my brother "accidentally" sprayed me in the eyes with a fire extinguisher when I was 11. i still haven't forgiven him.

RE: holiday memories | from Seth HowardDec 16 2003 - 10:27

Ouch. Yet another reason I'm glad I don't have siblings.
