why cant you guys TRANSCRIBE THIS STUFF? Im knee deep in some Vandross here, and now ive gotta pause my itunes so that i can hear J-HO school me about some dog magic. this is the future people! TRANSCRIBE!

also: is this guy suggesting that i POISON my sick dog back to health? does that really work? like AJAX?

and if that doesnt work, i should tie the dog up to a S&M rack until it pukes and craps all over itself?

im going to try this.

I love transcriptions too. Jan is having many of his interviews transcribed for a book project which is nearly done being edited.

No one is suggesting that anyone poisons their dog. This is an anthropologic observation which I have never heard of before. These same people are initiated in this custom as are many of their children on the Shamanic path.

Feeding a dog Ajax is a bad idea!

if feeding drake ajax was a bad idea, then that may explain his sudden downturn in health... Crap. wish id have known that last night.

hey, what will happen if i rack him up and dose him with some of that stuff?
