I was wondering if the members of Dino Jr have any kind of education in anything? Do/did they only live from their music or did they work with something beside it?
Its a strange question maybe, but i think it is interesting that Robert Pollard is a math teacher and thats why im asking..May 4, 2004 at 11:25 am #101643
I have heard J worked in a gas station. He tropped out of Amherst and I heard he was studying some philosophy. Basically they lived off of their music. They started playing as Dino when they were like 18 or so and gradually got more and more successful so I don’t think they have done anything else since.May 5, 2004 at 6:40 am #101644
i read an article where j said he studied at some college in manhattan for a bit as well … i’ll try to find that b/c i’m sure i posted that somewhere around here :aliensmile: …May 5, 2004 at 6:43 am #101645May 5, 2004 at 10:23 am #101646
Hehe that was a funny article! Well, if they were so young when Dinosaur Jr got successfull did they probably not have much time to study etc.May 5, 2004 at 8:57 pm #101647
yea, i remember reading in "our band could be your life" about the owner of homestead records i believe talking about his first encounter with j when he was in college in amherst, saying that he had rings on all his fingers and huge hair, and he talked about his weird eating habits. so i’m pretty sure that j’s got some college experience.May 6, 2004 at 9:31 am #101648
Yeah I heard he used to make mounds out of mashed potatoes and tape little animals to his clothes.May 6, 2004 at 4:28 pm #101649

i’m sure he refers to little stuffed animals. kinda like the ones bassist Flea had on his pants once.May 7, 2004 at 3:08 am #101651
An analysis of changes in sensory thresholds to mild tactile and cold stimuli after experimental spinal cord injury in the rat.

Changes in sensory function including chronic pain and allodynia are common sequelae of spinal cord injury (SCI) in humans. The present study documents the extent and time course of mechanical allodynia and cold hyperalgesia after contusion SCI in the rat using stimulation with graded von Frey filaments (4.97-50.45 g force) and ice probes. Fore- and hind-paw withdrawal thresholds to plantar skin stimulation were determined in rats with a range of SCI severities (10-g weight dropped from 6.25, 12.5, or 25 mm using the MASCIS injury device); animals with 25-mm injuries most consistently showed decreased hind-paw withdrawal thresholds to touch and cold, which developed over several weeks after surgery. Stimulation of the torso with graded von Frey hairs was performed at specified locations on the back and sides from the neck to the haunch. Suprasegmental responses (orientation, vocalization, or escape) to mechanical stimulation of these sites were elicited infrequently in the laminectomy control rats and only during the first 3 weeks after surgery, whereas in 25-mm SCI rats, such responses were obtained for the entire 10 weeks of the study. These data suggest that rats with contusion SCI may exhibit sensory alterations relevant to human spinal cord injuries.May 7, 2004 at 9:49 am #101652
Maybe J invented that "Mascis device"..
