Jim – Fundraising Update – And a Special Request

Today is the day, folks!  I’m still putting the finishing touches on the post with all the particulars, but by day’s end you’ll have all the info you need to help donate to Jim’s “Get Up And Walk” recovery fund.  Thank you for your patience, and thank you in advance for your generosity and for forwarding to every single person you know.

Now for a special request:  We would like to put together JIM’S KICKASS THERAPY PLAYLIST.  What song would you like to suggest for Jim’s digital mixtape that we can load to his iPod for the grueling gym days ahead?  I’ll start it off:  Joe Esposito – You’re the Best Around from Karate Kid.


Please leave your selection in the comments at the end of this post!  I’m going to send his motivational power chords a week from today.  Let’s fill up his ears with the sounds that inspire us and make us think of our plucky hero!

  1. Great idea Adam. I am going with Disturbed….Down with the sickness.


    • You can thank the First Lady of Hemstead for the idea. She’s a smart cookie, that one. I’ll put the Disturbed version and the Richard Cheese version on for him! Great suggestion!


  2. Hahaha, I love your pick. The first song that popped into my head was that “Live To Win” song by Paul Stanley. I imagine Jim singing it and pumping his fist like Cartman during that song on the WoW episode “Make Love, Not Warcraft”


  3. Higher ( I wanna take you) by Sly and the Family Stone & Kashmir by Led Zeppelin & I will survive by Gloria Gaynor. That’s all for now I’ll think of more later and post. Best wishes to Jim and his family….


  4. Hi Adam. This is a such a great idea!. Well I cant help but think of REM. I know Jim loves them. I think Nightswimming is his favorite but it is kind of slow (maybe you could use it at the end as cool down music) “Its the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine” would be my upbeat choice for him. I know he likes it and I heard it about 1000 times in his backyard while he was skating his ramp. Oh yea and he LOVED Metallica Master of puppets..and its really fast and motivating. I just posted something on his FB wall this morning to cheer him up, because when he was in HIgh school he was OBSESSED with Hulk Hogan. You should add that song too:) Hope these will work. Let me know if there is anything else I can help out with.


  5. “I get knocked down, but I get up again” by Chumbawumba. You’re welcome.

    Ma na ma na (Doo do do doo do) – Muppets

    Learn to Fly – Foo Fighters

    Here it Goes Again – Ok Go

  10. “One Foot in Front of the Other” from Santa Claus Is Coming To Town…hey I’m nothing if not timely.
