Dr. John Lilly

... would be our King and would lead us in reprogramming our minds. Never mind that John Lilly is dead. Or that he was in regular contact with aliens. And dolphins. And bad aliens. Doesn't matter, the man was a visionary!

anarchy

When I mentioned that ideally I thought that anarchy was a noble concept I meant self rule or inner rule. I did not mean no rules. Folks that feel anarchy is anything goes should go read some Kropotkin. An ideal society would be one of mutual aid where people cooperatively seek to work together without dominance of one person or group of persons over others.

The term anarchy has been missused and missapropriated much of the time, and I saw this lots in the 80's and 90's by folks that felt that it gave them the freedom to do anything they want. That is not what mutual aid or true anarchy is, it is working with others and following your inner guide and rules, basically comes down to the Golden Rule.

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

The vibes you're putting off....wow...relax...go get some sleep...chill...and saying all smokers lack ambition is absolutely untrue, stereotypical and HIGHly judgemental..it'd be like someone calling you a Nazi....hmmmmm....

Well, my tattoe is a cross, not a swastika

Germany is cool. My Grandmother (jazz bass player and singer) was from Germany. I have yet to play there, but I've played in all of the UK and Scandanavia. They really liked me in Norway and I gave a passionate speech for a big crowd.

Anyway - since people don't want to throw me money for that I thought I'd play some of my favorite music for a living. All I'm saying is that scuzzy spoiled Anarchists draw cops like flies to crap. If you don't want the reds and blues you just gotta relax . . . stop protesting SO MUCH and listen to some good music.

When people actually stop the insanity and listen to me play (geez WHAT AN EFFORT) . . . they are amazed. I take them to that magical place that Deadheads know and every time I play I'm recalling the incredible experiences I've had on the road with Deadheads.

My philosophy rules. I even got baptized by Mormons once. Mormons in California were like the Star Trek Federation. No races were looked down on . . . they had a deaf ward and you could learn sign language if you wanted.

I ended up working the spotlight for the signing chorus. They did all the Disney songs and everything worked fine except my parner on the other spotlight used to work in artillery and was partially deaf.

He missed his cue and I had to quickly shine my light on Happy as the Seven Dwarfs were exiting stage right. Lol.

GOGD is right about the swastika thing

And "potheads have no ambition"??? Au contraire! Know plenty of folk who are certainly ambitious potheads!! Never heard the bit about the military=nazis before, but ...perhaps am just naive. Or perhaps it's cuz I live in Germany, where you gotta be real careful about just throwing that word around aimlessly.

Good ol GD

Negative? Dude I just played, "Franklin's Tower" in a Redneck bar called, "Megabites" deep in the Bible Belt (Crossville, Tennessee) and lit up the stage with pure Grateful Dead love. I'm anything but negative . . . but bitter? Yeah - I've had Deadheads calling me a Nazi for years.

Here - let's see how you like it. Dude - do you pay taxes? Yer a Nazi maaaaan.

See how annoying that is? I've been posting at Dead.net for years and years . . . can't get Deadheads to bend their ear to this music . . . and when I come to the South I get a resounding round of applause from hippie BASHERS.

Well . . . I'm going to react to that. Deadheads ARE being lame and need to respect people like Jerry, Jack Keroac, and Pigpen for being grizzled and/or ex-military.

If you heard my tunes and knew what I've been through to bring the world this music you'd be kicking a few rumps right along with me. Hippies are cool, Deadheads are cool . . . but that loudmouth . . .REAAAALLY focusing on Bush and hating all forms of government has GOT to go. Somebody has to run the show . . . and that person needs a modicum of respect.

Even at a Rainbow Gathering you might meet someone organizing the event. And geez man . . . even the Mexican army has tanks. I bet they have a few jets too.

Anarchists - GET OVER IT. And please . .. enjoy the music. You haven't lived until you've heard my new "Lost in the Ozone" song.

If Deadheads ruled the world . . .

We would have sanity and reason of course. Potheads have no ambition and that's great for dealing with the human condition. A true pothead would never become an evil facist emperor so . . . if Deadheads ruled the world the world would reach joy and equilibrium.

Anyway, I'd love to do my best to stop the insanity and let love rule . . . but even though I play guitar like Jerry I come from a military family so . . . I must be a Nazi according to the neo-Touch of Grey Deadheads. Yep - Pigpen must have been a Nazi too because he wore a swastika on his biker jacket. And Keroac was in the Navy.

Well . . . enjoy the extra cops at shows due to anti-government madness folks. Thank the bitter, angry loudmouth standing next to you at the show properly, now.

In the meantime, I'll work on compressing my songs so folks can download REAL ACTUAL GRATEFUL DEAD LIVE and you can get your "Jerry Fix". I totally rock. You guys should hear my extended "Uncle John's Band".
