Chi Cheng full update

by | Oct 7, 2009

A new lengthy post on the condition of Chi Cheng has been posted on oneloveforchi.com. An excerpt of the post is as follows:

dai is doing great being home. i will be honest, we were apprehensive about bringing him home, not because we didn’t want him home, but because we are not doctors or nurses and we were not sure if we could take care of him if something happened. but obviously love is a powerful medicine, because it is working. 24 hours a day, he is with his family and being stimulated so much more than he had been in the hospital. little things, like taking him for a walk everyday, even just getting him in a chair for most of the day, to keeping music playing that he wants to hear, movies he wants to watch, doing his physical therapy, giving him new things to taste. i am so happy to be able to say that i can see a difference and improvement. it is still a slow recovery and seeing him when he was in the hospital made it seem even slower to me. but now he spends most of the day awake, noisy as hell. he is expressing himself, which shows me that he is here, right with me. i haven’t lost him. if there is anything that makes him uncomfortable, he lets us know and the best part is that we are there with him to take care of it. we have the “visiting angels” on daytime shift now. after the first bill came for 24 hour shifts, i thought it wouldn’t be long before i might have to sell a liver or something to keep them on. the girls we have are wonderful and very attentive to dai. mom and i take turns at night with him. we don’t get a lot of sleep, not because he is having trouble, but you kinda lie there on high alert, so it’s not really sleep, but i’m not complaining. sleep you can catch up on…

Touche Amore Interview on Ryan’s Rock Show

Last October when I did this interview with Thursday, Geoff Rickly talked up Touche Amore and claimed that they were one of the best hardcore bands in LA. So the other night while I was watching “Blossom” reruns and getting drunk on Four Loko, I randomly...

Destroy The Runner Interview On Ryan’s Rock Show

Tough I don’t really like to do phoners anymore for Ryan’s Rock Show, I’ve been hearing that a lot has been going on with the Destroy The Runner camp — so I decided to get the dudes on the phone. The band just released a B-side to their album...

Korn Interview on Ryan’s Rock Show: Drummer Ray Luzier Remembers Who He Is

Back in the prehistoric days when neanderthals like Geocities and MP3.com walked the net, Korn was the baddest band in the world. When I was in the 7th grade, I would go to my Catholic grade school non-uniform days strictly in Korn attire, and would scream...
