I burped oregano for hours.

Okay, People-

One more time for this! Ferndale, Michigan! I will be at the Magic Bag Theater on Saturday September 29th for two shows. Let’s do this!

Thanks to all of you WTFers for coming out to the LA Independent for the live show at RiotLA. It was insane. Killer. Good seeing everyone!

Feeling a little ill. I hate the nag of an almost-illness. I guess that you can look at life like that but I’m talking specifically about that nastiness in the back if your throat. That woozy feeling that comes when your body is trying to kick something’s ass on a cellular level. I’m one of those people that still hangs on to the idea that I can stop a sickness if I catch it early enough. The way I do it is with oregano oil. I was told by a fishmonger who was told by a music store owner who was told by a fisherman that oregano oil was the shit and it would kick all bacterial and viral ass if you took it in time. I’ll always take the word of a fisherman. I won’t believe they are God, but they are out there among the elements so I think they know what they are talking about.

I have bought some standard oregano oil supplements and I have paid top dollar for some badass high concentrate oregano oil supplements but honestly I haven’t been doing it for a while. The last batch I bought was just some no-name-ish Whole Foods stuff that seemed to pack more of a punch than any other I had administered. When I woke up the other day I felt the nag. I went into the kitchen and I filled the dropper with the magic oil and squirted it directly down my throat. I had not eaten or had anything to drink and my throat was on fire. I could feel the burn up into my head. My eyes were watering. It continued to burn down my esophagus and into my stomach. Then I felt my entire body trying to reject what I had put in it. I was coughing and gagging and hunched over holding my guts. All I knew was that what was done was done and I would have to ride it out. After about five minutes it started to ease up and all I thought was, “This will work.”

I mean, after what I went through, how could it not? I burped oregano for hours.

So far so good. Still feel a little ill but I do not want to go through that again, so I’m hoping for the best. But I’ll probably do it again. That’s the way I am.

Three shows this week! Monday, from The State and Reno 911, the amazing Kerri Kenney-Silver. On Wednesday, artist Christopher Cooper, (“Coop”) talks hot rods, painting and Satan. On Friday, from Dr. Katz, Home Movies and the creator of Bob’s Burgers, Loren Bouchard. Great talks. Great week. Hope you dig it.
