I like it when you call me, "Preach Parcher" because it reminds me of my times at church. Technichally, I'm a priest (albeit a low-level one) in the LDS church with the authority to baptize. I literally have the power from a major church (Mormons) to dunk you and cleanse you of your sins.
I didn't stay long enough to get the authority to do faith healings, but it's okay since I persued medical training next. I've got letters after my name - I'm an M.A. (Medical Assistant) and can perform many functions in a hospital or clinic. Most faith healing takes place in hospitals these days anyway - it's the placebo effect. People respond to treatment better than the treatment they are getting . . . due to faith in science and their doctor. It's all doccumented. What many would call miracles . . . are happening every day.
Greenpeace activist and canvasser (with some ties to Earth First!), LDS priest, Medicine man, martial artist, Toastmaster (Toastmasters International) with years of experience making speeches (my dad is a DTM - Distinguished Toastmaster with 30 years of experience) . . . heck man I've even been an announcer at the Mother Goose Parade in San Diego. I've opened buildings for the city and have met many fameous people.
My Dad played his trumpet for George Bush (Jr) recently. He was careful not to aim his trumpet directly at the then-President Bush. After all, any manner of projectile weapon could have been concealed within. The Secret Service was nervous as always.
None of this makes me vain because I don't worship myself - I worship the human potential. I just want to win this game here and score bonus points for all the righteous homies who want world peace and equilibrium with Nature.
EQUILIBRIUM OR BUST!!!
I'm just a hippie from California who was basically raised on the Dead (and the Beatles) . . . and my CD was designed to give you that "Jerry fix", that's all. If you're jonesin' for Jerry, and the new Dead shows don't quite do it - this can. Not that the new sound is bad or anything, but nobody could look beyond the scales and do totally original, breakthrough stuff the way Jerry could . . . except possibly for me. That's not vanity - it's just the way I was trained. I was trained in "going off" (solos) so well I'm even somewhat melody-a-phobic. Even though melodies are usually only a few notes, they make me nervous . . . while doing a solo is a walk in the park. MAYBE I'm as good as Garcia was.
You'll never know unless you buy my CD . . . and I'll swear on the Bible that the money will help young, cute, desperate squatters with nowhere to go. Think about it - that promise isn't hard to keep at all . . . in the South, everyone is poor, I know (and have partied with) all the kids by now . . . and they all wanna squat at my house when they turn 18 and are kicked out.
Just like the Grateful Dead, I've got an extended family here and we're all hippie squatters. Most of us wear tie dye and don't want much from life except for food and maybe some weed.
I'm not vain since I'm a pothead - I really have no ambition except for world peace . . . which would be achieved if people would just listen to each other and smoke with each other. It's kinda simple.
Can't stop giggling over the free basing aspirin and ergotamine shit...LOL
the song has a meaning????,so think in a positive way and is open to your own interpritation and ??????????????? shine on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
if you don't do anything today that makes you feel good,
do one thing for me
Play and listen to "Mission in the Rain" reflect smile, if you really look you can find beuty in the ugly.
brother, isn't vanity one of those seven deadly sins.
ok that's it all must just listen to Garcia, the album "Garcia" you the cool one with the hand and the dice. though it's a studio is one of the most peaceful tangible musical creations that brings US together for the purpose of happiness and FUN......

Even the pope in Rome. Give until it hurts, baby!!! You know it's all good!!
And - hey - I really do think the South is too racist. That's a generalization, but I'm sure if a survey was done the proper stastical analysis would back me up. For the most part, the Southern interpretation of Christ's teachings and thus their take on racism and social liberalness needs adjusting. NOT A BIG ADJUSTMENT - just some minor changes in attitude.
With bible thumpers - I always reccomend that they brush up on tithing in the scripture. People are acting very stingy lately (thinking it's the moral thing to do due to Republican propoganda) - when you're supposed to give at least 10% of what you have in MY church - back in the old days if you had 10 eggs, you'd give the church 1 egg. Inside the church, if a poor man doles out 10 bowls of soup for his fellow poor folk, he just earned himself a bowl of soup by feeding so many others. That's the way we get things done in the clergy - and I reccomend it for the world.
Anyway, I just got back my stickers for CDs (with my face on them) and my CD jewel case covers so . . . I'm pretty excited. Doing the indie thing is fun from conception to mixdown to proper packaging. After all, if the world decides to love me they can just give me ridiculous heaps of cash for my work . . . now that I have a product to present to them.
I still find it . . . overtly formal for people to demand something for their money . . . when I have already done so much to raise consciousness in America but - hey - who am I to argue when it is possible for me to oblige the people? I'm going through the proper channels here and am joining the system. Here's my CD . . . now fork over cash so I can feed starving orphans and fund Greenpeace.
Not a bad sales pitch, there. Got a nice ring to it. It's a pleasure to join the work force. Let's sing the work song.
"I owe, I owe, so of to work I go . . . "
Btw I really did work for Greenpeace. I was a canvasser for a year and a half. It was exciting until Amnesty International kept showing up, burning my turf by talking to people before I could. Competition is annoying.
