Go Ahead, Show Off a Little...

Here's the bulletin board/virtual refrigerator door/etc. for showing and telling about accomplishments you're proud of. Your art. Your graduation. Your promotion. The garden you just planted. Your kid's karate trophy. You get the idea...

okay, gotta share the joy...

Just got off the phone from interviewing Jorma Kaukonen for a story that's going to be on the Rex Foundation site, and I'm still grinning from ear to ear.

And invoking all the techno gods that the online recording worked!

New book!

For all you heads in the academy, and for those of us struggling to follow along, I wanted to share my excitement at a new publication:

The Grateful Dead in Concert: Essays on Live Improvisation
Jim Tuedio, Stan Spector, eds
http://www.mcfarlandpub.com/book-2.php?id=978-0-7864-4357-4

My partner, Brent Wood, contributed a beautiful essay entitled "The Eccentric Revolutions of Phil Lesh". It is a great piece of work and feels good to see it in print after hours of conversation, listening and writing. He's already published an essay on Robert Hunter's poetry and psychedelic experience and is currently tackling the subject of Jerry & tragedy. These pieces will hopefully appear as a whole book in future.

This book is carefully put together with foreword by Stanley Krippner and contributions by the usual suspects. Great writing, nice organization (tuning, first, 2nd, 3rd sets, encore...) and good ideas! I couldn't be more proud.

hey

Jerry's brother cut off young Jer's middle finger with a hatchet! So it could be worse.

They were quite young at the time. It did give Jer something of an iconic handprint.

your brother is messing with you

Now true, Sam Morse invented the telegraph, so there's some poetic connection there. But Jerry's name is Jerome (after Kern) John Garcia.

Name

My brother told me his name was Sam Morse. But I can't find anything about that.
