Me: Doctor, I have a pain in my back when I do this (shows PT exercises). Doctor: Then don't do that. Physical Therapist: See you in a month. Me: Yay!
Got to see Kurt Vonnegut interviewed in Second Life. Ok, I was only able to see the video feed but my wife got to attend in person and took some screenshots for me. Additional coverage is at the Infinite Mind site and a review by Osprey Therian, who attended tonight. The video should be posted to the Infinite Mind site in a few days.
Explosions in the Sky - The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place
An entire album in live youtube videos. These guys are awesome and make beautiful powerful music. If you are unfamiliar with them, you might have heard them on the Friday Night Lights soundtrack.
There is no number 5. I was done at 4. Don't you think 4 good things in one day is plenty?
Just kidding, there is a fifth thing.
You can download an entire Explosions in the Sky album that hasn't been released to the stores on their official site. Get it now by going to their albums page and clicking "The Rescue" to hear it. It sounds gooooooooooooood. Really goooooooooooooooood.
(Disclaimer: I am on muscle relaxers due to the pain in the evenings. This and future posts may reflect that.)
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
