Never Mind Lily Allen, Who Is Yael Naim?

If you've seen the ubiquitous Mac commercial, you've heard her song "New Soul," which on the one hand, yeah, probably has Weird Al working on the spoof even as we speak. And yet, I find myself kinda liking it, and I just love the video:

I am so darn envious

See this what I mean now why didn't I get into them at least 77-90? the whole communal celebration thing would have been so great. then again i may have become truly obsessed and become a camp follower hard to do with a mortgage and 4 kids. I thank god for the DVDs and really loud HD TV.
when I wear the GD golf shirts straight people have no idea what it is but kids smirk and nod.

And the road goes on forever....

and if it was Halloween...

or Mardi Gras, or Chinese New Year, or any other seasonal festivity, things got a good deal more creative.

And let us not forget the dude with the neon dancing bear costume and whirling hat.

Dead Head fashion

In response to Csilla's question re: what do Dead Heads wear other than tie-dyes? Having mentally surveyed my own closet and recalling many a show, this is what comes to mind (in no particular order):

Panchos, Birkenstocks, Crocs, Patchwork shorts, pants or other garments, t-shirts from other bands: SCI, Widespread, Phish, etc., face glitter, hemp jewelry, tatoos, dreads, hair wraps, ferry wings, hoolahoops, Elvis sun glasses, glow sticks, watermellon masks, straw hats, backpacks, bandanas, favorite MLB baseball team hat, and any body piercing you can think of.

Hi Picicsillag...

The expression comes from "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test," a book you will find instructive as to the cultural roots. You will also learn about that other fine expression, "Never Trust a Prankster," which may come in handy when considering some of the answers you're likely to get to your questions...

on the bus?

Hello everyone!

Im actually writing a paper on Deadheads, and I had a few questions..hopefully you can all help enlighten me!

Can you clarify the 'on the bus' expression? Also, besides tie-dyed t-shirts what did most deadheads wear? Are there any expressions or slang that is commonly used?

I hope somebody can help! Thanks!
