This is a thread for people to wish Miles well and mention how awesome he is!

I visited Miles again today and he is in great spirits and doing better than he was yesterday. He went for a walk outside!

Miles is amazing!

And since you know that, join in!

I've only met Miles once when I was dropping off a DVD for this. I gave him a ride home afterward and was left with the impression of a man who does a lot for others and is genuinely nice and easy-going. Get better, dude.

I don't know how you don't love Miles. We were trying to remember when we met and decided it must have been the BLD days in the late 90s; just seems like he's always been a permanent fixture of the Columbus scene.

I met Miles five years ago when I was working door for a show he played. There was a lot to take in- his music, personality, laughter, and presence are all one of a kind to say the least. Ever since then, I have enjoyed any chance I get to see him and talk to him. I am always left with the impression of somebody who cares deeply for music (his record collection is amazing and his songs are deeply rooted in a lot of different kinds of music), has a wonderful sense of humor which is often in his songs- many of which I have found myself laughing out loud to (also dude, he is one of few people I know whose sense of humor never is at the expense of others). I love the guy, I love being around the guy and I can't wait to see him again. This sucks that he is having to go through this, but I am relieved to hear he is getting better. Get better Miles, next three drinks are on me!

Zach and Miles came over to my house in the late 90's and sat and talked to my mother-in-law for a half hour. It was a true crosscultural exchange. She died a year later but I'm sure meeting them was something she carried with her.

Oh man. I read the other thread. This is crazy. I about cried thinking about it. Get well Miles! How could any one do such a thing to a beautiful soul like Miles? We should all do something for him. My girlfriend also knew him and she is shocked.

Miles is doing a lot better today. He is in room 848 at OSU hospital. The general number is 293-8300. People are starting to take him things, you should too. He has a pair of "sexy" playing cards already. He said he should be out by Thursday or Friday. Hopefully he will have a nice collection of things by then. Long live Miles!

Really? I like Miles too (fyi I don't think Flexner's description of him as a human irritant was really that negative, ZAS. That laugh of his does one of two things...both of them get under your skin), but really? You don't get it by now??

Remember all those assholes who "lost their faith" after 9/11 becuz How Could God Allow Such A Terrible Thing?

Let's not be romantic about human nature.

Miles, I just tried to call in the hospital to wish you well. Love your gutz, Keith (and Karen) from the library.

I would've played you an inspirational song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Qae_TUTeGo

Get well soon!

Thanks everybody for all the love and support. Extra thanks to thisholymedium for bringing Neil Hamburger into this.

I do have health insurance (thanks Americorps!!), and thankfully, renewed it just in time to actually use it.

Got released from the hospital today, and I'm being cared for by my family until I regain my full strength.

Once I can handle bright lights, standing up for 30 minutes or longer, and lifting amps you will find me where things are loud and the kids are cool. Till then, I have lots of Thank You notes to write.

Once again, I love you guys, you are my city and an extention of my heart.

Thanks Keith!!!!! I fucking love this song. On the real, I've always felt kind of like a jackass for practicing karate kicks in my spare time, but I managed to deliver two good ones that night, which probably the main reason I'm typing today.

Lesson, Ralph Machio is cool, no irony. :D

That explains something that didn't quite fit. Glad you survived, and hopefully the worst is behind you.
