dude (from Xray Eyeballs) in a Jonathan Toubin t-shirt (by carlyrab)
Toubin

The following message was posted to the IheartJT Facebook page yesterday:

IHeartJT Update from Jonathan's family: The Toubin family is so grateful for the love and support of everyone at this emotional time. Jonathan is still in critical condition and needs your positive thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery. Please keep your love and energy flowing.
That unfortunately conflicts with rumors that his condition had improved to "stable" or "serious." In fact, Howie Pyro wrote in a comment on the same page (but in an earlier post):
I hear that Jonathan will NOT be paralized, he has been updated from critical to serious condition (good thing!), he's having some issues with punctured lungs & other stuff, but he is waaay better than expected and things are looking up!!! please donate to his paypal fund at ihearttoubin@gmail.com and keep praying! It seems to be working...
Benefits continue to happen around the country. Turbo Fruits headlined one in Nashville on Saturday. There were at least three in NYC over the weekend and one in Austin, and more are being planned, including at least one in Chicago.

T-shirts, like the one you saw above, were made and worn by friends and fans at the benefits. Photos are currently being collected for the Facebook page.

Info on how you can help is HERE.

Watch a short documentary about Jonathan below...

It would matter if X-Ray Eyeballs were a good band. But alas, they are total garbage. Unoriginal and even worse than Golden Triangle. Better than K-Holes, but that's easy because K-Holes are actually the worst.

what kind of weirdos write comments making fun of bands on a post about someone in critical condition?

you know what i really don't mean to be a piece of shit but i'm really getting sick and tired of reading about these posts where artists need help asking us to donate money. we are all artists. we all need help. we all need money. we all have disabilities. why should this blog feature one individual in the scene? i was just reading that stephen kasner post (http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archives/2010/12/stephen_kasner.html) from a year ago. it looks like people who gave money can't even get in touch with people in his camp. what's stopping the same thing from happening in this situation? it really grinds my gears when people take advantage of others like this, especially living in NYC when your heart can bleed for anyone who asks on the subway or street. i realize this is not my blog at all, but i would really think twice about posting any kind of donation link, unless it's to a reputable organization.
