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.

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."

too funny Marye

Are deadheads really drawn to warm indoor places? Egads, will have to reload on the mace, put the heat down and lock the doors!

We must repel them at Ithaca or face them in ever-greater numbers in Utica, Manchester and Amherst where the "Earthmothers" make them multiply!
