Playin in the Artpark!!

Hey there, thanks for the updates, Playin!

I am super excited to hear that you're coming to ArtPark - I will find a way to meet you there. Guess what? Don't be bummed about your seats - the whole thing is general admission - at least that's how it seemed even on the first day of ticket sales. I think we will enjoy milling about freely in a beautiful venue. Camping - I originally thought it would be easy to go back across the border to stay in Ontario, but it might be fun to find a campground so we can stay and keep the party rolling. Looks like Four Mile Creek is the closest State Park, and there's a KOA Niagara. This is shaping up to be a mighty good time.

Yay!!!!

Going to see Further :) :0 :) !!!!!!

Hi all,

Well I'm going to ArtPark (Lewiston/Buffalo) July 8th!!!!!!!!!
Hooray!!!

Lawn tickets were all that were left at this time. Wish I had had of gotten around to this sooner. :( Oh well, the freedom of movement with no seats should be fun and the clips of shows I have been hearing are promising of elation to come.

Does anyone know about camping in the area?

Wake and Bake

Hey Lamagonzo,

On those wonderous wake and bake days I tend to have 6 outrageous ideas a minute. Thanks for making me think of waking and baking and I hope you have many wonderfully outrageous ideas today.

All the Best,

Waken'n'bake

I often have 6 outrageous ideas before breakfast.

And often act on at least three of them... I try & tune it down for the rest of the day, though.

Hello my friends

Hi all I'm still here and still listening and playing.

Well:

Just enjoyed a great March Break.
We went to the beach for a day, played laser tag with my kids and nephews (My name was "Dark Star") it was great fun, enjoyed a couple of beers in the sun on the front lawn listening to music with my wife and her sister in the sun while the kids biked, scooted, jumped and played (it felt like summer vacation).
Saw Alice and Wonderland iwith my kids in 3-D yesterday. Enjoyed Tim Burton's adaption...Great morals and messages (a lot of archetypal things were happening...atleast in my mind) throughout including something repeated through the film.....It's O.K. to be partly mad most of the best people are.....Another good one on imagination..... I often have 6 outrageous ideas before breakfast (or something oalong that line).......Anyway, I think I related to the Mad Hatter best. After we left the theatre (beautiful and sunny outside) my daughter stopped in a parking spot and got into an invisible car. I apon grasping the situation got into the drivers seat and we drove off......anyway heres to imagination in action!
Watched the first 3 Star Wars movies with the family.
Read a good an interested book I have long wanted to read. Farenheit 451.
I visited with my sister one afternoon last week (alone...a nice and rare occurrence-normally with kids in tow).
Went to T.O. with a friend to meet another there....went out for all you can eat sushi and a few beers....fun...enjoyed a pipe and a fun and wonderfully strange movie "Bubba Hotep".
Played more guitar, learned a couple more dead songs - Deal and Bird Song. Oh yah Dark Star too! Just stumbled upon that one in a jam.

Anyway. It was hard for us all to get back at it this morning – I’m pacing myself today....think I’ll have more coffee shortly.

All your concert outings sound great. Yes I am hopeful to get out to see a further show this summer.
Also I have been enjoying the podcast "Dead air with Uncle John".
On one show they opened with an awesome "Samson and Delilah". I was having one of those transporting feelings and was very pleased and surprised to hear it was actually Further and not a GD recording.

Keep enjoying life,

Thanks GC

I think it's telling that our patriotic pride is quiet on the CanHead forum. We don't usually blow the horn too loud around here, though there was some partying in the streets for sure. I think that there's a sensitivity to the fact that we're guests in a mostly American scene and wouldn't want to be rude! (I can't imagine that there are no hockey fans here... seeing that it was the most viewed sports program in Canadian television history - 21.5 million people, 64.3 percent of Canada's population, watched some portion of the game.) And what a game it was!

I don't know about you guys, but it was kind of surprising that we came away with so many medals... didn't expect it, especially after what I remember from Calgary '88. People were high off the Olympic buzz last week. That's if you support the Olympics... whole other topic there. Any heads from Vancouver wanna share your experiences pre- and post- Olympic invasion?

As for FURTHUR adventures... I am gonna truck down to the ArtPark in Lewiston for the 8th of July ... but I'd sure love to see you in Rochester, Chris! Many of my buddies will be there. I will too, if I can make some "special arrangements" =)

Cheers,
K
