OK, I guess I've been living in a cave or something cause I had no idea that Zane's house caught on fire and that he nearly got himself killed trying to save his dog! I just got this email from the Art and Humanities Council:

In conjunction with the silent auction closing of "New Directions", Artifacts, Inc. will be collecting donations to benefit local artist Zane Yost who suffered third degree burns on his back, neck and shoulders while trying to rescue his dog, Max, when his house caught fire on January 16th. Zane, like many emerging artist, did not have health insurance and would greatly benefit from your support to cover his extensive medical costs. The gallery located at 819 East Third Street in Tulsa's East End District will be open this Friday, February 2nd at 6:00 p.m. and will remain open until 10:00 p.m. 818 Martini Lounge will be hosting a happy hour from 5:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. with live music from Steve Liddell starting at 9:00 p.m.
Let's plan on being there Friday to show Zane some love.

Zane is a good guy. We were at TU together. Who should donations be sent to?

Not sure whether he saved Max or not, but he's posted some pretty narly pics on his MySpace []. Looks like it was pretty bad, but at the same time he was lucky it was on the back side of his body.
Daniel: Artifacts Gallery is organizing this; I think you could send donations to them.
