Trifecta is back but..................

Time won't change you
Money won't change you
I haven't got the faintest idea
Everything seems to be up in the air at this time

Drugs won't change you
Religion won't change you

Science won't change you
Looks like I can't change you
I try to talk to you, to make things clear
but you're not even listening to me...
And it comes directly from my heart to you...

I need something to change your mind..

talking heads>>>>>>>>>>>>>ah

but on a serious note, i left this site with a vengeance and would like to make peace.

Taking the Dead Everywhere

The world really is round and I keep going round and round it :)
I install telephone systems for a living, great big expensive ones that takes months to install and I do it in such fun places as Lome Togo, Brazzaville Congo and Kathmandu Nepal (to name but a few). Everywhere I go I have my trusty MP3 player and speakers with me. More than a few times I have been working hard with a Dead concert playing at a suitable (LOUD) level, only to turn around and find quite a few of the local workers dancing away in the halls of the building I am working in. We even used a really good copy of 10/22/78 (Winterland after the Egypt trip) to test the outside speakers at the U.S. Embassy in Lome Togo. It was the only music played there that the neighbors did not complain about. In fact they asked for more!

But Listen To

the natural sounds coming from the place. They will transport you to a different temporal rhythm which is ageless. You will never wish to leave due to your lack of gravitational positioning making you impervious to any sort of forward momentum.

Dharamsala to Kathmandu

From Dharamsala (Home of the exiled Dalai Lama in India) to Kathmandu, Nepal I've seen the influence of the Dead. The first time I saw the Dylan & The Dead cassette was in a tea shop in Dharamsala run by a young Tibetan.

Kathamandu, a hippie mecca in the late 60s and 70s with it's Freak St. in the touristy area of Thamel, has it's shops with Dead T-shirts. By the Boudhanath Stupa there are a few places here and there where you will hear the music of the Dead. There is certain rock station there that plays a lot of Dead but don't know if they still do.

I recommend both places to any heads traveling to that part of Asia.

Deadhead in Bangkok, Thailand

Hey Now! My name is Jeremy, I have been in Bangkok for 3.5 years, I have met one or two heads here, the biggest being my boss at my school. I play guitar, sing and have TONS of music to share.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Happy Holidaze (~);-)
