Which one? One he asked something about her leg warmers since several girls were wearing only them and she misunderstood or was coming down and told him something like "I don't go to McDonald's and tell you how to flip burgers!" Everyone or most everyone pulled their money off the bar.


Another one at real dive he convinced "cinnamon" he was an "East coast talent scout" and got about 45 minutes of 1 on 1 time at a side stage. The other trailer trash princess with the big c-section scar wasn't happy.


best wishes for a speedy recovery Matt

As I recall it, he tried the "east coast talent scout" routine during the daytime and then the same day/next day tried directing a dancer's routine during the evening rush and got the burger flipper comment.

Damn. I haven't been in here in a long ass time.
Matt is good guy.
Tell him Amy and I say hi and best wishes.
Amy went to a couple arfcom get togethers years ago when I was running long haul. She had nothing but great things to say about him.

UPDATE  - Today (17 May) - From his wife, Cheryl

Matt is getting really restless and grumpy with being in the hospital which to me means he is feeling better.
They still have him on diuretics, I was hopeful he wouldn’t need them but he has some water retention that is proving difficult but not near the level it was at.
They want to run this course of antibiotics out to see if it will get rid of the infection on his tricuspid valve, if not he will have to have open heart surgery.
We will know more in the beginning of June.
They are trying to move him to Sandpoint back to Life Care until that time.
Hopefully he will gain back some of the progress he made at rehab before this in that time.
In June I will take him back to Seattle for an echocardiogram where we will find out which direction we need to take.
Keep on praying, it is working.

Sorry for not updating sooner, it just seemed overwhelming to sit and type, I can’t really explain it.
It is like I have had adrenaline let down for the past week or so and have had no motivation.

Matt, Matt, Matt....wudda we gonna do with you? No clue, but I hope we have 30 more years to do it.

Thanks for the updates. Glad to see he's better, at least for now. Keep up the fight.

Matt's got open heart surgery scheduled for end of July...at some point he had a heart attack based on tests today. Tough old fucker is still kicking though.
Link Posted: 6/18/2020 10:52:20 PM EST
Long Time, no post. Had to reengage. Matt is a good dude. Prayers...

June 18th update:
Matt just had an angiogram in preparation for heart surgery the end of July.
Apparently along the way he had a heart attack as one artery is blocked.
This probably happened around the time his aortic valve started going.
We will be going back to Seattle for open heart surgery the end of July.
Please keep your prayers coming.
We are using any money to pay for things insurance doesn’t cover like his iv
home infusion, wheelchair, walker, etc, he also ran out of Medicare
hospital days, travel to Seattle for appointments and surgery and any
remaining will go to make access to his cabin so he can be at his happy
place, and saved for any future needs or complications related to his health.

Prayers en route.

May the Lord look over you, Matt. You are very important to a lot of people.

Please pass along my regards. I'm very sorry to hear of Matt's circumstances and I wish him well.

This was the update from his wife yesterday (Jul 29 at 6:36 AM)

Matt has his open heart surgery tomorrow.
He developed a fungal infection which attaches to the tricuspid valve and his aortic valve that they had fixed.
I am pretty scared right now as this made an already bad surgery worse


I am glad the surgery went well.
Prayers to you and your family Matt!!

Any Updates?
Link Posted: 8/12/2020 11:26:45 AM EST
Haven't been on AR15.com in years, I messaged Matt a couple times earlier this year and I log into the home page ever week to see if he responded.  Hadn't ventured into the site until now.  I guess you've got a fair excuse for not writing me back fucker.  Any update on his condition?
Link Posted: 8/12/2020 12:07:20 PM EST
I talked to him yesterday, he sounded good, much stronger.

Well he's back in the hospital, no immediate danger, just some related medical issues. I talked to him, seems in good spirits, says the chow is as good as the Al-Rashid in Baghdad...its been 16yrs, so I can't remember if that's good or bad.

Damn. Prayers for you and your family Matt.

02 Jan 21
From Matts wife Cheryl.
Matt is currently at the university of Utah hospital in Salt Lake City.
He had very bad bedsores that exploded over a week and pressure ulcers on his heels from his hospital stay for his open heart surgery.
He will be there for a couple months why he heals and they do plastic surgery on the bedsores.
Part of the problem is he couldn’t use his arms to move around after his heart surgery.
His pressure ulcers and the residual from his fungal infection that settled in his foot meant he could not put pressure on his feet.
This kept him from trying to stand and getting pressure off his backside.
In any case he is healing.
We had a scare where they thought there was infection in his bone, but with advanced imaging we found out it was the tissue around the bone and treatable.
