Apple Talk / Re: Open Bar: Curbside Pickup Only
« on: September 18, 2020, 02:18:18 am »
Like two weeks ago I brought shame upon my family and discovered I actually enjoy Twitch. Specifically, I stumbled into the wide world of live DJ streaming sets, both individuals and clubs. Here's one example that some of you heathens may enjoy: https://www.twitch.tv/faithintheglitch . This guy actually did a set last night for the 25 year anniversary of Hackers.

Recently Facebook banned live music streaming and DJing... so its actually legal in Twitch???

I thought in Twitch they were banning people left and right for copyright infringement on music? Or is that just when they use it as background music while playing games?

Streams with copyright music just have sections blocked off silent on the recordings. Still allowed live.

Bones mended and all?

That with regards to my climbing accident 50 foot plummet? Last month was 3 year anniversary, Probably have 80% of my strength back in my right arm at this point, Occasionally still get nerve tingle in my right bicep but was told that'd take years to heal fully, cuz nerve damage is a bitch. If you were replying to someone else, nevermind.

Glad some of you fuckers are still kicking around. No idea what was in my last life update but let's see, I'm married now, just bought a condo in a denver suburb because I was paying the same amount in rent and pissed off about it, had my honeymoon in japan for sakura aborted 4 days in of 18 over covid escalation which was good times, and i'm currently interviewing for a PM position in the cannabis industry which a recruiter hit me up for as I had no intention of going that route, but eh, money's great & that industry is booming with quarantine shitshow. In the past week I managed to replace an electrical outlet, set up a cat6 coupler between 2 walls, completely replace all components of 2 toilets, replace a ceiling light fixture, and discover that at 33 I'm too fucking old for physical labor as my back has hurt daily for the past 2 weeks & we're still a week out from fully moving.

Until the next post in however many months/years.

i fuck off from lurking for a few years and miss quite a bit, apparently.

Been my longest hiatus since I first stumbled across these boards over 10 years ago.

I think my last update was I fell off a mountain and didn't die? Specifically this

Two years later, well, finished the degree finally. Got engaged. Currently interviewing for new job. Still in Denver.

Until next time.

6 weeks and change since my fall. 4 days into cold turkey quitting the opiates I've been on 24/7 for 6 weeks straight. No cravings, so not addicted, but absolutely experiencing withdrawals. Been sick since Monday. Lost probably 10 pounds. This sucks. Not being able to sleep had been the worst part.

Unfortunately, I tried other methods for pain management and none of them worked until last week when it had a major change.

Follow up appointments next week. We'll see how it goes. Have maybe 80% range of motion in right arm back. Can't reach directly above head.

Have tickets to see Garbage on Sunday. Kinda worried concussion has made me unable to handle multidirectional noisy crowds. I really hope that isn't the case, but some restaurants have given me immediate onset headaches.

Just read for 2 hours, which the brain doc told me was a really good sign that my concussion  healing properly..if only my fucking shoulder and ribs would follow suit. Shoulders gotten worse the past week, which hopefully means this is the crux, and ribs still hurt like fuck anytime I cough - coughing fits bring me to tears especially.

Mostly at this point im just going fucking stir crazy from my newfound worthless slothful lifestyle.

Fuck this shit. Like, I want to climb again when it's safe, but fuck me this recovery is awful. Going to be over hella cautious about all danger. At least that's my current outlook.

Tried remembering more and more and more of the fall and the icu days, but it's just hazy. Really wish they hadn't given me ketamine. I understand the benefit, but I fucking hate the memory gaps it's caused.

Any landing you can walk away from, right? Sheesh.

I really wish there was a vid of the fall proper. I so would've made jerryoftheday with it if there was. There some other pics on other news articles - Google "Boulder Canyon climber fall 30" and my nameless story should be the majority of the hits - I specifically remember telling a reporter they couldn't  use my name, and I'm very glad I was coherent enough for that one.

Been like 3 years since someone called me dags. Still not that long gone stranger.

I was assuming you'd had cracked ribs before. Seemed a bit extreme for a first sporting injury. Might I suggest snapping an ankle or two and then building up from there. Take it slow til you get a good feel for it :lulz:

I probably fucked my knee up my 2nd or 3rd winter living on resort, but never got it fully checked. Mostly just bruises, scrapes, and general aches. Never had to ride the sled of shame until this one. First real sport injury, and it was a hell of one at that.

Trauma doc today regarding ribs, xray shows them mostly healed with right lung still only at about 80% - doc said some more breathing practice should address that.

Interesting, a lot of that sounds similar to cracked ribs?

Well, I have 3 broke ribs, and top right rib punctured right lung as it broke, so it's possible I'm only feeling the ribs and can't tell anything from my lung itself.

Morbid curiosity -- You said you didn't really notice when your lung got punctured.  What's it like now?

I've never had the chance to talk directly to someone to whom this has happened.

Feels like a side stitch from running everytime I breathe in fully/deeply. Deep breath exhale feels winded, like trying to catch your breath after a sprint.

Hurts sharply like a cramp anytime I laugh.

You mainly just feel like you're in after-running winded and trying to get your breathing to normal constantly. Only really noticeable on deep breaths

Good job not being dead yet!

Please accept this friendly reminder to count this incident as a major concussion when considering further risks in the future. Most brains can handle a few, but you don't want to go around falling off horses or getting beat with blunt objects if you've already got half a dozen doozies under your belt.

Actually had brain doc visit yesterday, have a follow up with her end of July for test and final confirmation of no lasting damage. First concussion and first time being knocked unconscious that I can remember, have snowboarded in a helmet for years, so pretty optimistic of my outlook at this point.

Today is trauma doc to cover my punctured lung and everything that isn't my shattered shoulder blade.

That awful, I'm so sorry and glad you didn't die!

On the other hand, for the rest of your life you get to tell people you're really bad at falling to your death. So, that's a win.
I dunno. I'm so bad at it that I've never come even near as close as Da6s.

I think the caveat here is that you have to actually fall. To be worse at it than Da6s, you'd have to fall at least 51 ft without dying.

I don't openly endorse this new measurement of badassery

It's either this, or back to the oranges.
