On Jimmy Fallon...

... last night he talked about Jerry's old house up for sale and tonight he made a Jerry reference when handling a lizard the wrangler said could, "... take off a finger..."

I still can't get over the fact that The Roots are his house band. How cool is that?

Terrapin Station?

On Easter Sunday morning... I hadn't slept very well in several days (nothing to do with drugs of any kind - I just get zonked from work and the insane schedule sometimes) and I was like a zombie in front of the TV watching the local Comcast Sports Net telecast and there's Curt Callahan the director of Cole Field House pointing out a picture of The Grateful Dead performing from a show I was at in the late '70s! The piece was on Cole Field House btw - not the Dead. I was revived again... enough to make it back across Sleep's Dark and Silent Gate. I don't know why certain things ease my mind these daze but seeing those kind of psychedelic moments seem to work best for me. It's as if I can feel like I've done my days work or something... I know, crazy.

Cap Center Implosion...

this morning around 3 et on the Nat Geo channel "Thrill Zone" (sorry but their web site is a complete mess and I can't find the exact show) the owner of a demolition company spoke of the "bitter sweet" job of imploding the Cap Center, complete with a good picture of the band on stage there. He talked about seeing The Grateful Dead there himself "many times" as the picture was aired. Sent shivers up my spine as I reminisced the cosmic energy we shared in that place of time and space. My brother-in-law and a handful of old fiends went there to witness this sad demise when they brought Her down but I couldn't bring myself to join them.

Presidio

I was watching this movie I guess from the 80's and the young cop had to explain to Sean Connery who or What the Dead were and then I flashed on wasn't this the army base Jerry and Hunter met at?

And the road goes on forever....

Puff of Grey

Not exactly a "sighting," more a reference, but today, the NPR comedy news quiz show "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" followed a segment about the increase of marijuana use in US senior citizens with a snippet of "Touch of Grey."
