Anything happening in Sydney or Adelaide? I'll be in those two cities in December and January.

To tellya the truth ...

I haven't been at the Commercial on a Sunday arvo for at least a couple of years, so I'm just assuming it'll be open.

Bennie and I went a couple of months ago for the $10 Monday meal deal. We drove past on the way to tae kwando this morning and the out-back beer garden looked like a cool place for us to visit.

See yez tomorrow!

A long 12 hours of boring post-election newspapering today, with the following to keeps me awake:

Roky Erickson - I Have Always Been Here Before. I love the sound of distorted autoharp in the morming!
GD - DP29, Steppin' Out With ..., Vault III

Grateful Dead and denistry

The most painful aspect of my lunch-time visit to the dentist today was financial. Geeez mon - one filling , a bit of repair work on another and a cleanup and I'm $300+ out of pocket AFTER insurance has paid its miserly share. Mumble grumble.

Other than it was 99% painless and whatever discomfort was felt was superly mitigated by Dick's Picks No,29, disc 3: While I was there having my tooths attended to we heard, at quite a nice volume for a dental surgery, Terrapin Station, Playing In The Band, Uncle John's Band, Drums and The Wheel. Sure beat the commercial FM radio/Cold chisel crappola that was playing when I arrived!

*************

Don't forget: Commercial Hotel, Yarraville, this Sunday, 4pm.

Far as I can tell, there'll be at least five of us this time 'round.

Wakin' to the flood

The first Mel meetin' of heads was a fine one.....Sun Dec 2 at the Commercial Hotel in Yarraville is a good choice Mr. Weir, but perhaps it depends on who puts their hands up this time around. If there are only a few, your place may suit just as well. That's up to you.

Ok, fellow melburnian deadheads....let's try and make this one if at all possible.

Register your interest here or at kurtperry@tmb.net.au as soon as possible!
Cheers

farken!

Digging as we speak DP29!

What a killer set - and, at $33 for six discs, an incredible bargain.

I'm digging old favourites anew and loving tunes that've never really done it for me in the past.

There's multiple instances of physical reaction: For me it starts as a flutter around the heart/lung region, followed by a delicious feeling scooting up my spine and across my skull like a mixture of mercury, honey and cocaine, capped by an exquisite shudder and often goose pimples.

Not that I'd know anything about cocaine. It's a strange thing about my life - especially considering the places I've been and the people I've often been there with - that no one at anytime has ever offered me anything stronger than a joint.

A bloody good thing, too, otherwise I'd have been six feet under a long time ago! :)

Which reminds me of a fellow music pal (but not a Deadhead) who confesses to experiencing a loosening of the bowels whenever he steps across the threshold of a secondhand record store!
