Jesus just left Chicago and he's bound for New Orleans!

Damn tinnitus just wont go away and now it is louder than ever!

This helps; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XFYMjkFYPg

He walks on over to the First Mate.
He says "hey first mate what's that you smokin'?"
He says.. "that ain't nothin' but a little ol' cigarette captain"
n' he says "I don't believe it. Gimme a puff"
n' he says "alright."
So the captain takes himself a little puff. Nothin' happened right away.
He says "it's alright, it's alright. It's just a cigarette. I'm goin' for a walk" And that's what he did, folks. He went for a walk. He went.. he went out walkin' around the boat he went walkin' toward the wheelhouse he.. he walked around.
He walked around the wheelhouse once....... He walked around the wheelhouse twice....... On the third time around the wheelhouse....... The First Mate he looked on over at the Captain n'....... N' he say....... You wanna 'nother toke, Captain?...... And the Captain, he say....... RIGHT!
So this time he's gonna tell the captain a little bit about this smoke that he's smokin'. He says "now the idea, Captain, the idea is to get this smoke way down deep inside your tummy n' hold it there just as long as you can it'll make you head feel good all inside. So the Captain says alright he takes himself three big tokes off that funny little brown weed n'
He says "I am commencing to hold it in!"
He walked around the wheelhouse.
He went downstairs
he laid down.
He get up he ran in the other room.
He sent a radiogram.
He came on back in.
He took a shower.
He come out.
He shaved.
He laid down.
He got up again.
He turned on the television.
He turned off the radio.
He played a game of cribbage.
He read his masked marvel comic book.
He walked thru the kitchen,
made a cup of tea,
made a cup of coffee,
sat down,
ate a piece of pie,
went upstairs,
played another game of cribbage,
went back in,
finished his other masked marvel comic book,
laid down,
he had the television, the radio, the egg beater, the air conditioner n'everything's all goin' at once. He walks up on deck and this is fifty two minutes later n' this cat ain't breathed yet!
So the First Mate see him standin' up there on the rail he's all puffed up like a balloon!
He says "ya gotta let it out, Captain!
So the Captain he let it all out at once.
Fallin' right down on the wheelhouse floor. He's out cold.
O-h-h-h, this just brings us up to what's happenin' again folks. The Titanic she's sailin' around in between the icebergs. Every body else is havin parties. The Jewish people they jumpin' up n' down they tradin' wives n' Cadillacs n' diamonds n' drinkin' booze. Everybody else is hoistin' up land lubbers, battenin' down hatches n' doin' sail things. The First Mate's hangin' over there on the rail havin' himself a little smoke n' diggin' icebergs. And the Captain's out cold on the wheelhouse floor.

Put on the headphones and crank it up and forget about the ringing in my ears, for a little while!
Don't forget to smoke along with the music, almost 14 minutes!

taking a lot of aspirin can cause tinnitus!

just_another_asshole/jaa: taking a lot of aspirin can cause tinnitus!


Yup. Had a GF who could barely hear out of one ear because she'd tried to commit suicide by ODing on aspirin.

eyeq360: RedPhoenix122: eyeq360: SJKebab: What's worse than getting an ear worm?

Cancer?

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.

Probably should have opted for the hat.

I got a hat from the radiation oncology people at the cancer center.  I didn't care too much for the drab gray color.  Nor did I particularly enjoy getting my groin/abdominal area getting nuked for six weeks.


Hey, been there, done that too but I never got anything! Damn you Canadian healthcare!

Erix: Watch Touching the Void.  Shows just how absurdly horrible an earworm can be.

"There's a brown bird in the ring, tra la la la la..."


Great film. I can't listen to that song after seeing it.

/I never could anyway

//I have mild tinnitus from about 10 years of clubbing, three nights a week. I'm not even aware of it 95% of the time, so after reading that story I feel blessed.

What;s really annoying is when you hear a song but it's the Weird Al version that gets stuck in your head..

..and another one rides the bus - Hey-hey!
..m-m-m-my bologna
..eat it! eat it! grab yourself an egg and beat it!
..it's all about the Pentiums, baby.

Matthew Keene: KrispyKritter: But I would walk 500 miles

I hate that song almost as much as 'Hey There, Delilah.'

Jixa: Meh, I have a constant stream of music in my mind all the time.  It keeps the voices from telling me what to do because they think they're at a party in a club...but I'm much better now...

Ishkur: That's nothing -- I've had the same song stuck in my head for 20 years.

It's called house music.



Then you ARE the Ishkur of Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music? I wondered but didn't want to be too presumptuous. You're a sort of hero of mine. Thanks for putting together the guide. I have used it to help educate many musically curious friends over the years.

You didn't even get a shiny Mylar balloon saying "Congratulations" at the end of chemo?  That's pretty cheap of them.
I didn't lose any hair down there, until they shaved it off for surgery, which was a weird experience.  Not the surgery, but having someone else shave your hair down there.

I had The Who's The Seeker stuck in my head for a week straight. It wasn't so bad the first day or so. But it just kept going... ALL DAY EVERY DAY FOR AN ENTIRE WEEK. And towards the end, it'd slowly leave my head, but then I'd realize it had left and I'd think "oh thank god it's gone!", then of course *BOOM* it would start right back up. As much as I like that song, I try to avoid hearing it because the possibility of it getting stuck in my head again gives me a fair amount of anxiety. I better stop thinking about it before it sneaks back in there.


...I've been searching low and hiiiigh.

DigitalCoffee: What walks down stairs,
alone or in pairs,
and makes a slinkety sound?



What rolls down stairs
Alone or in pairs?
Rolls over your neighbor's dog?

What's great for a snack
And fits on your back?
It's LOG LOG LOG!

Wait til you see the new one. 10,000 more songs to get stuck in your head.

Who told her this is tinnitus? It's classic Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Medicine for same should clear it up in a few weeks.

I always think of "Addicted to Spuds" when I hear "Addicted to Love."
Your greasy hands,
Your salty lips,
Looks like
You found the chips
