Coangelo article

Nice article - lacking in judging and huge on honesty. Loved it.

"My Grateful Dead"

HuffPo article too good not to share.

"...maybe it is the honesty in their music and a trust that, just like their audience, the Grateful Dead were simply who they were, without judgment and without apologies -- even when they were dark figments of themselves. And, maybe it's because of this that on these warm June nights, I mark another year. I reflect on being ten years old, sitting in stadium seats at my first Grateful Dead concert, the summer breeze blowing through my hair as I listen to Jerry Garcia sing "Standing on the Moon," with a weathered and tired voice that was far from perfect -- but it was entirely his own and that's all I ever wanted to hear."

Commercial

I'm not sure if this is the right section but a promo commercial for the mystery channel Cloo TV had a guy who was like an amateur detective buying a car. The seller said the car hadn't been driven far and the buyer pointed out evidence refuting his statement, including a painted-over bumper sticker of the dancing bears. It's still running on tv.

This isn't a media sighting

This isn't a media sighting but it is a far-stretch-connection-to-the-Dead sighting:

I saw The Decemberists last week and during one of their songs (one of the new ones but I don't remember which), I was afforded the chance to see a Hurdy-Gurdy being played. No China Doll, but the Hurdy-Gurdy was there.

Sweet instrument.

Terrapin Limited

So does this mean that all the money raised for the 'Terrapin Station' centre through selling the Terrapin Limited 3 CD set will actually be used.

I have long wondered what happened to that money. The set is still on sale in the shop here for a whopping $39.50. Is a proporion of that still going to the Terrapin project? It would be nice to know there is an account somewhere accumulating money and that it has not just been absorbed.

yeah, I agree

and it sounds like it might be on a somewhat more manageable scale than the extremely ambitious Terrapin Station plan, which kind of collapsed under its own overwhelmingness I think.

Hoedown in Fairfax?

If Phil follows through with the city folks, this will be a fun place to visit & listen to the music play
