How often did you forget that guy's name, but saw him on every run?

What I Want To Know...

Wow!, All evil needs is for good people to do nothing. Usually, when I wanted to just check in with someone who may or may not need assistance, my own internal gyro scope was in need of calibration. I never really felt apart of any affinity group beyond being an active audience member looking to get my batteries recharged by the music. Sometimes a little reminder that every thing and everybody including the person on the verge of panic, it's cool, you, they , it me, all of it, if you are here, then by definition you are cool and a little transient confusion, altitude distortion will pass because your cool and oh, by the way, you may have taken an intoxicant earlier and forgotten about it, that's cool too.

HUMAN KINDNESS!!!! #2

Go here and click "Free Episodes" and then click "What Would You Do" download the media player and watch the latest episode that's up on the main page now.
It's episode 9 and is in 4 segments that will make you cry if you have a heart at all they are so real!!
Be sure to watch it through to the last segment which is a similar scenario as I had gone through and you won't be sorry and your hearts will be warmer for it.

HUMAN KINDNESS!!!!!

This means a lot to me because Sat. I was laid out flat on my back, alone, with my eyes closed after The Dead show at the Gorge on a lawn 1/2 way up the hill to the exit.
I was feeling really bad and could have needed help or worse yet be having a heart attack, or lying there dead.
Melody was in line for the restroom before we were to leave so I told her I was going to lay down there and wait for her.
I was laying there flat on my back motionless with my eyes closed.
I lied there for about 5 minutes when I heard a mans voice say,
"Hey Chief, are you alright? Do you need any help??
I was so surprised with this huge act of kindness I opened my eyes to see a man about 40ish standing alone over me.
So I sat up and said no I'm fine I'm just waiting here for my daughter.
"THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR STOPPING AND ASKING AS YOU DID AND I APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH!!" You are VERY KIND!!!
He said, Great I'm glad but just I had to stop and check?? Have a great night. And walked off.
Thousands walked right on by and this "MAN/ANGEL" took the time to walk up the grassy hill just to see if another fellow human being as himself was alright and didn't need his assistance.
Deadhead, Humanhead, Herohead, Human Being!!!
Bless this man with you good thoughts so good things happen to him.
No doubt doing the things he does as this and caring from his heart brings him more good karma than the rest of us will ever have but he deserves it!!!
If he stopped for me as he did he would stop for you or anyone else in question of needing assistance.
If we all were as caring for each other as this stranger was to I than this world wouldn't be as bad as it can get and has gotten!!!

Wanted to share this huge experience with you all.
Bless, Den

Jammin at the Chelsea, NYC

Just a shout out to Brian from Memphis via Cali and your vintage bus-full of fine heads:

It was great playing at the Chelsea with you guys til dawn, in the Roach-room. Didn't catch the name of your banjo player, but it was fun. Saw a great picture online of Roach looking "a bit" burned out in front of MSG - ha! Didn't get a chance to connect with y'all after the show so here's a big THANK YOU! Any time you're in Ontario, please look us up - Canadian heads love to jam! =)

Happy trails,
Kirsten

Funny...

... reading these posts about "first shows" and shows that y'all have seen... makes me wonder where the time went. (well I know where... it went thataway...)

Been watchin and listening since '69... too many good times to remember.

Keep hopin' to meet the love of my life at a show.... can't imagine a better place or people...well, I have I guess... or thought I had, but we always headed down a different road.

That said... Looking for a female dead head, age doesn't matter, who wants to ride cross country by motorcycle to the summer fest at Rothbury and back... and for once head down the same road together after the show. Can send pics and meet first... you gotta like riding motorcycles, camping, and me. I'm in AZ.

Gimme five I'm still alive...

Morman Jay in Palo Alto

I went to my first Dead show with a guy named Jay that was from Utah but who moved to Palo Alto to be with his dad after the shows in 95. He was fifteen then and has a tatoo on his ankle that speaks to his "dislike" of the morman faith. I've been looking for him ever since. Sending him my way if you know who I'm talking about....

Looking for Jay!! Blond Hair, Blue Eyes!!! Looking for Jay!!!

Gumby is really real MS

Yep, he is really real......i did not get a ride home with a blow up doll.... hee hee.

Gumby is really real?

peace through music
Wow, the only Gumby that I remember seeing at many shows was a huge blow up Gumby that used to be tossed high into the air up in front of the stage. As far as remembering names I don't think I was born with that part of my brain. Funny how we remember Gumby's name but not peoples names. You know what Gumby says............Ya just gotta poke-y around!
