She‘s a giant, punk stands on her shoulders. I drove my dad absolutely crazy playing “Horses” (“that’s pornography!” “no, that’s art!”)  and her version of “Gloria”. When I tried to convince him that she was a poet and an intellectual, he said, “How can she hear herself think?” Actually, I think the performance comes after the thinking. You know?

Tinnitus is the medical term for “hearing” noises in your ears when there is no outside source of the sounds. The noises you hear can be soft or loud. They may sound like ringing, blowing, roaring, buzzing, hissing, humming, whistling, or sizzling. You may even think you are hearing air escaping, water running, the inside of a seashell, or musical notes.
It is not known exactly what causes a person to “hear” sounds with no outside source of the noise. However, tinnitus can be a symptom of almost any ear problem, including ear infections, foreign objects or wax in the ear, and injury from loud noises. Alcohol, caffeine, antibiotics, aspirin, or other drugs can also cause ear noises.

Do you experience a ringing in your ears sometimes or permanently?
