Title: The return of johnnyyac - OKONOKOS Bonus Giveaway!
Post by: johnnYYac on Jul 03, 2019, 12:43 am
I used to live on the Forum.

From March 2009 until September 2014, I spent many hours and posted over 9,000 times. I've met a lot of beautiful people here, many of whom are still great friends.

I love this band! I love this place.

In October 2014, I nearly died during heart surgery- life support for 10 days, 49 days in the hospital. I emerged weak and would endure 4 more surgeries over the next two years. Alas, the Forum fell by the wayside...

So, I miss this place. I miss you guys.  I'm starting to miss My Morning Jacket  (c'mon guys!).

Thanks to all of you who keep this place alive. I'm glad to see this place has been active while I've been away.

Well, I'm stoned and I'm rambling, so let's get to the GIVEAWAY!

I've got a VG/VG+ used DVD copy of OKONOKOS, inside  of which I will place an original copy of the limited (1000) DVD Acoustic Chorale.

Place your Forum name on the Roll Call below. A winner will be chosen randomly, just before the Red Rocks shows, on August 1st.

We've never met, but as a frequent flyer of this site and formerly of the Facebook group, I admire your contributions to the Jacket family! Happy to hear you prevailed through scary times. The forum has simmered down with the hiatus but I can feel the cobwebs shaking off!

It's a YacAttacc! I'd put my name on that list but I've already got me them thangs (as well as a few other choice MMJ items from the Yacmaster) . See you in Denver, Johnny!  :beer:

Good to hear from you johnYYac, you're missed big time around here. Sorry to hear you had to go thru legal issues but glad you were able to get something out of it.

I too have both these so I'll stay off the list and let someone who doesn't have them get them.

See you on the Rocks!

Welcome back.  Good to see you again. You've been missed.  Keep up the rambling and the good health.  See you in CO..... less than a month!  (I have those discs so no need to add me to the drawing).

Great to see you around these parts again Johnny. 👍🏻  I hope you're doing well and looking forward to the next time we rock a show.

I'm putting my name on the list because while I used to have copies of each, I lent them to potential new fans and never got them back! Lol. I guess they're fans now. 😂

Have a great time John.  :beer:

I'm bummed to not be making the trip this year and not getting to hang with you but I'll be smiling knowing you and the gang will be rocking out in that amazing place.

Looking forward to hearing all about it and fingers crossed we get together for some shows in 2020  :thumbsup:

I'll echo everything Eric said!  I too am sadly not able to make the trip out to Colorado but hope everyone has a great time!  Great seeing you back in the forum as well John!!!  I've been kind of absent myself the last year or so!  Hope you and your family have a great time!!!  :beer:  Hope we get some recordings of these shows!!!

My bad. I was supposed to choose a winner of the OKONOKOS DVD w/Acoustic Chorale bonus at midnight on August 1st, but our preparations for, and drive to, Colorado for the Red Rocks two-fer kept distracting me. So, here I am, my wife Michele at the wheel, an hour from home in Iowa City, and I just ran a number generator for numbers 1 through 11. The result was number 4. Therefore, the winner is...

ericm!

Eric, I'll get that out to you ASAP. Email me your current address at johnnyyac@gmail.com. Thanks to everyone for playing.

A great weekend. MMJ was in fine form, like they were never on hiatus. A number of good recordings are already up on archive.org.

Sweet! Thanks John.  :thumbsup:

They'll both get plenty of play, and it's funny how it worked out. Lent these out to make a new Jacket fan, never got them back, and now get them again from a huge Jacket fan.  :cool:
