Resonance

I just got done with a cowboy story entitled "Them Old Cowboy songs" by Annie Proulx (who wrote the original story on which "Brokeback Mountain" was based) that appeared in the May 5, 2008 issue of the New Yorker. After finishing the story I felt that it had resonances with "Jack Straw", it gave me some of the same feelings and to a lesser extent "Me and my Uncle". I thought folks who visit Dead.net might find the same resonances and want to know about the story.

Be warned however that it is ultimately a sad and disturbing tale.

Keep safe,
Another Bear

You're Correct, jesuschrist...

now FUCK OFF! I'm too busy having fun to buy anything and besides, the tax man got all I had left. Could you please strike that fed swine down? If you do, I'll believe in you (and I might just give you a cut in the $$$ action).

..........................

Jesus here … I have a message for all of you from beyond your realm. This is a Message from Jerry, Pigpen, Brent, Keith, and Bill. To all you who have taken this site and made it about personally attacking one another; who have made a point to forget about the music completely, who have disregarded what this web site is all about. You all have disappointed us greatly. Remember it’s about the music and what it means to each and every one of you. Stop the personal attacks against one another. There is a lot going on in this world right now. And not everyone is going to agree with each other on what should be done. The end of days is near. We need to come together and be united. No I’m not from the Chinese government. I have nothing to do with any government. Nothing we say on these forums about the world is going to change anything. Pray to who or what you believe in. At this point unless you are going to the different places or raising money to help fund these causes; all you can do is pray. So QUIT your bickering it’s time to get along and enjoy the music while we still have the freedom to listen to it. And Remember why we are here on this site in the first place!!!!

save tibet

in light of recent news events, please visit www.savetibet.org and pass the information along to as many folks as you can. in a nutshell, china is trying to destroy tibet's culture and religion and hide this fact from the rest of the world. tibet is a country and a culture that actually practices "peace, love and compassion". please help any way you can.

thank you

Grateful Dead on ROCKBAND

So to all the XBOX360 playing DeadHeads out there here is a little heads up:

I was on xboxlive and saw that there is now a 6 pack of downloadable Grateful Dead songs to play on rockband. For 800 points you get to download and play China Cat Sunflower,Truckin,I Need a Miracle,Sugar Magnolia,Casey Jones and Franklins Tower. On Rockband you are given the choice to play drums,guitar,bass or sing the lyrics and I must tell you I am smiling today. So those of you with an Xbox360 and rockband buy the download and if you don't have it, tell a friend.

Gotta go jam me some truckin on hard.....

Spread the word,
Danny
