    thanks buddy! finally starting to feel normal except for some weird body/skin numbness and distorted taste sense.

    I am a big Maynard fan. Flaming lips bore me though.

    Maynard was on Rogan's podcast saying how he would've excelled in the military/combat because he "knows some people who are in" :rolleye:

    that's quite an extrapolation of his ability :jj:

    I absolutely have a genuine love of Lou Reed that started when I was a kid. Its not posturing at all.

    As far as The Flaming Lips go, they are too a band I discovered early on. I like them alright, but they aren't remotely one of my favorites. Though I do think Wayne Coyne is super-handsome.

    absolutely

    didn't know this. the way he phrased it during the interview was like he wasn't
    ever in the military :scratch:

    anyway….I'm a Tool fan :cheer:

    He was in the Army and trained as a forward observer. Then he attended West Point preparatory school. He left the military before attending West Point.
