Karen O hearts Jonathan Toubin (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)

Rolling Stone talked to Jonathan Toubin from his extended stay room in Portland:

"I woke up a month later. There were some friends and family there, and I didn't know what happened. I didn't even know what year if was. Everyone had to explain it to me, and it was kind of unbelievable. I was really horrified at first - the thing is that when they woke me up, they weren't sure how long I was gonna be there and didn't know how normal I was gonna be. Turns out things are gonna be a lot better than they thought, so that's good. But the first thing that happened when I woke up in the hospital was like, I gotta get out of this place. They showed me some of the news articles and, wow. Some were depressing, but there have been a couple about what people have been doing for me, which really, I'm just bowled over that anyone went to any trouble."

So glad to hear he is recovering but the fact that he lost hearing in one ear completely and part of the other is just too tragic.
