doorbell rang yesterday at about 1500 hours..

my 80 year old neighbour... in tears... She had taken a fall, and hurt her elbow... I called her doctor, we could pop by immidiately.. He said... take her to the hospital right now.. Then realised i was in my painting clothes... HE said, you can?? I said yeah, i have to make arrangements for my son, as he has to have his last vaccinationshots in 20 minutes... I called my mum, she took him...

in the hospital we had to wait.. and wait... then they made a xray.. By that time her ancle swoll up like a mellon too.. But.. the doc ordered only 1 xray.. So the nurse appologized, but said, i think they will take her into the first aid unit, then ask again.. (stoopid rules, we both agreed)

We did get into the first aid/ ER unit. Her elbow is broken, has to have surgery next week, her ancle (which i had to point out twice to the doctor) has a bad sprain (sp??)

at 1900 hours we where finally home... But what strikes us all the most... Several people saw her fall, some had to detour with their cycle around her, and did nothing... What kinda world do we live in???

She is now home, taken care off by the housecall nursses (don t know the english term) and the whole neighbourhood will cook her dinner emoticon



 I's awful that nobody stopped to help her but I'm glad she found you, Jo. : ) I'm glad she has a whole neighborhood to cook for her too.

Re: ThE Austin Pit Crew ~ Chapter 7


Got this in my Rolling Stone email updates:

By Andy Greene
Sep 15, 2010 1:29 PM EDT

Of all the remarkable scenes in the new documentary The Promise: The Making of Darkness On The Edge of Town, perhaps the most notable one shows a clearly pissed-off Bruce Springsteen, circa 1977, dressing down his band and production team in the studio. “Everybody shut the !@#$ up,” he shouts. “I’m sick of this !@#$ arguing!”

“The footage is so great because the cameraman is being completely ignored,” says director Thom Zimny of the film, which documents the making of Springsteen’s seminal album Darkness On The Edge of Town. (The film debuted last night at the Toronto Film Festival, and will also be included in a massive six-disc Darkness box set hitting stores November 16th.) “There’s no narration, and you literally see the camera get out of the way of the band at times. The biggest treat, however, is seeing the working relationship between Bruce, the band and [producer] Jon Landau.”

The archival footage — which was shot by filmmaker Barry Reebo — sat in a vault unseen by virtually anybody for decades. It’s an ultra-rare look into the recording of a key album from a major artist. “In it you see an early, early, early sketch of ‘The Promised Land,’” says Zimny, explaining the special appeal for Springsteen fans. “You also see them working on versions of ‘The Promise.’” Other scenes show a shirtless Springsteen leading the E Street Band through songs at his house in New Jersey, and exhausted band members placing actual bets over how long Bruce was going to make them record that day. “A key early direction I got from Bruce was to not have a lot of people talking about the footage,” says Zimny. “We let things play out, so you see the development and writing style in the creative process.”

Also included in the box set: a three-hour concert filmed December 8th 1978 at the Summit Arena in Houston. “The footage comes from the in-house screens at the arena,” says Jon Landau, Springsteen's longtime producer and manager, and a onetime critic for Rolling Stone. “It is a true bootleg in that sense. We had a variety of shows that we were considering releasing from the Darkness tour. Some had good sound, but the picture wasn’t so good. Some the picture was good and the sound was primitive. Considering the various options, the Houston show worked on the most levels. The sound is raw, but good in deliverance. The picture has been enhanced as much as modern technology allows. It’s an extremely powerful show. It has an incredible ‘Streets of Fire’ and an a great ‘Backstreets.’”

Beyond a remastered version of the original Darkness on the Edge of Town album, the box set includes twenty-one outtakes. “He really recorded four albums of material for this one album,” says Landau. “When we played them back for the band, they were all shocked because they had forgotten recording them. A lot of these things were cut in five minutes, and we quickly decided they weren’t going to make the album.” Springsteen recently returned to the studio the complete some of the songs. “In each case Bruce did what felt necessary to realize the song,” Landau explains. “It varied from song to song. People aren’t going to sit there and say ‘Oh, I can tell what he did here.’ It’s not like that.”

To cap off the project, Springsteen and the members of the E Street Band who played on Darkness (with Charlie Giordano subbing for the late Danny Federici on organ) played the entire LP straight through to an empty Paramount Theater in Asbury Park last December. “We filmed the band playing the album straight through a number of times on the 2009 tour,” says Landau. “In the end we decided to go with this more austere presentation — without the audience — which best captures the starkness of the original album.”

After spending over three years on this project, Landau is unsure whether or not other Springsteen albums will get the same treatment. “If we do decide to do that, frankly, we don’t have the equivalent of Barry’s footage,” he says. “We don’t have it on The River, and we have nothing on Nebraska. We just couldn’t do this type of documentary. It would have to be a different approach. I’m sure will be on the table, but this was an enormous amount of work and it’s too soon to be worried about what comes next.”

Bruce was apparently as excited as the crowd: "Ladies and gentlemen, I've had an erection lasting more than four hours — I should get to the emergency room. But first!..."

Re: ThE Austin Pit Crew ~ Chapter 7


i have a confession to make...

i ain t cut out to be a nurse...

yesterday evening my neighbour called, to ask if i would help her to bed... The nurse had not been around by that time (20.30) and she was exhausted.

I helped her out of her clothes, into her pj, and then into bed. But it freaks me out.. I hate it... I don t wanna see people nekkid and helpless. It is very very odd. I knew i was not cut out for it, but i wonder why i feel so strongly about this. Half an hour later , the nurse called in, she said, cause the neighbour is kind off a nightowl, she better help her at the latest... I told her about my feelings, she said: "no worries hun, that is why we are here.. I can t stand to clean out animalcages "(she saw my old zoo shirt lol)

still feel bad about it though.

This morning doorbell rang at 7.15, doctor and ambulance... they have taken her to the hospital, as her heart rate was waaaaay up.

i hope she will be fine... I think a little magical apc pma and pa is required... emoticon

Something's open it's my heart
If something's missing it's when we're apart
If something's good it's when we're back together again
Nothing's wrong it's just insane
Nothing's right until you're back again.

Oh, Jo, I'm the same way. I couldn't even do it for my parents. They didn't ask, but still... Then again, other people couldn't face planning their parent's funeral and listening to their worries, fears and such about having a terminal illness. We all have our things we can do, so nobody needs to be able to do everything. I think God planned it that way so we wouldn't get too cocky and think we didn't need other people. Built-in humility - what a brilliant creator!
