I think

it's a handprint, yes. I once had a t-shirt of the handprint, which I wore till it fell apart, and I'd sure love to get another. Not that I've seen one since the '80s.

In the GD Movie, if I recall correctly, there's a cake backstage with the handprint.

Sometimes I'm real slow

Sometimes I'm positively glacial (which I guess is somewhat slower than real slow but somewhat faster than it used to be).

Watching the TRI broadcast the other night, it suddenly occurred to me that the Jerry "hand" logo was of a left hand, not a right hand.

Have I missed this all these years? Is there an explanation? The only thing that came to mind is that it was a rendering of a handprint, and therefore was a reversed image.

So what's the scoop?

Sheepishly awaiting enlightenment...thanks.

I don't think you need to stop reading American Life just because you're waiting for Signpost though!

Hi marye, I went to the

Hi marye,

I went to the bookstore yesterday to buy Signpost, but they were out of stock, so I ordered it and it's being shipped to my home. I paid for it in the store with cash. It hasn't been shipped from the time I am writing this, but it's being shipped today.

I'll take your recommendating by reading Signpost before I read anymore of An American Life.

personally I'd recommend reading Signpost as soon as you can get your hands on it, but that's me.

Some of it is a bit dated, which is not surprising as it's 40+ years old. But it's pretty great.

Thank you for the info!

Would you personally recommend reading A Signpost to New Space before reading Desolate Angel, but once I read the whole book of An American Life?

I just bought An American Life from my local bookstore, and I paid them with cash. barnesandnoble.com is the website. I do a Pick Me Up to only make sure they have the books in stock, but it uses a zip code.

Off topic: I am still looking at deaddisc.com as for reference. I think you guys were right there would be no such thing as a reference site to categorized a complete discography. LOL.

yeah, those cards at Walgreen's.

If the book is in print, the chances are pretty good that your local bookstore could order it for you; it'd certainly be worth asking. Hey, they'd probably take cash too!

No, not locked up. I live in a group home. I could see you are going to make fun of me for that?
