Electronic Music other: Pies for jdg
Written November 15 2006 , Tags: fundraiser, jdg, cancer, stfu
So maybe some of you know that jdg is currently undergoing chemotherapy to treat testicular cancer.
If this is news to you, it's because John is being a MANLY MAN, and you know how manly men can be, they don't like to complain. Unless its after a few beers and people start showing off scars (oh God no!)
Sadly his employer (and wife) does not offer health insurance, so they are having a fundraiser-- you can buy delicious pies from their West Seattle bakery
DONATE TO JDG'S CANCER TREATMENT FUND
and the proceeds will go toward buying the drugs jdg needs to kill this cancer.
For those of us who cannot pick up pies from West Seattle, there is an option to just donate to this good cause... and I for one think lotsa people from here SHOULD DO SO. Even if he hasn't mastered your album, fotoshopped your face or posted a link to some dubious imagery that you found funny, his liberal dispensation of information on using EQ, compression, computers and KYMA alone are worth cash money.
Get well jdg.
if you are at the pub when the beer induced scar sharing happens make sure you are wearing sunglasses. I suspect that beneath jdg's undies there is nothing but pure white light!
and yes.. all you fuckers should donate or buy pies. medical bills are insanely costly and pies are really good! and so is jdg.
if you dont buy a pie the terrorists win!
get well jdg.
i'll pass the link around to co-workers and have my gf do the same, as well as donating. it's the least i can do after evrything john does for us as individuals and a community.
let's help kick that cancer's ass.
your fucking shitting me, tell me this is another one of those blowhard jdg jokes
the chemo sux.
so if u ever have to get chemo yourself... just know it sucks.
well some ppl it sucks less.. but i think its been sucking the most for me.
thx for all the ppl !
I wish I was in Seattle because I love pie. I'm going to spread the word to some of my Seattle friends... and beyond.
Get well JDG!
i spammed the bejesus out of friends and family for ya. hopefully that email gets forwarded around a few times. before you know it you'll be on the local news talking to asain reporter Tricia Takanawa
I know you have been struggling, John. Just keep faith in the fact that it will all pass and you will be healthy and feeling good again, perhaps with curly red hair!
I bet the pies are good.
get better, man. I'm seriously.
no fucking way! I thought this was a joke..
really truly get well...
Man, mlbot told me but didn't know you didn't have health insurance. Count me in for a phantom pie.
I will pass it on to friends in seattle who need pie love.
Boo cancer! Boo health costs! Yay pies! Yay em411 peoples!
J, you did inspire 'bot to get a better haircut, so that's something. ;)
Cash moneys on the way. I'll donate my pies.

why, have you ever heard of someone posting some sort of internet scam?
jdg said: "hi my name is john and I need to smuggle 2000 pies out of Pacmanistan...."
this one seems legit.
Donation sent, it was the very least I could do.
All the best jdg.
