Our beloved freeform topic reborn!
At number 76, you name the bar the Garcia Family owned, The Four Hundred Club, at 400 First Street, SF. My Grandmother had the hotel across the street. All the Merchant Seaman Union Halls are in the immediate area (Rincon Hill). I believe Ruth was a native San Franciscan from an Irish family. I never knew the name of their bar. Jerry has some roots at the old waterfront, that's for sure. The beautiful Embarcadero!
Hey I`m glad you guy`s like that , however I can`t take credit for it . I found it on another web site and just though some folks here would find it interesting . Peace
... I'll bite, what is the subject of your post written in Tibetan?
thanx for clarifying that, gonz....i thought it was a new dialect of jibber.....jokin', though i really wasn't sure, with all the odd punctuation.
Damn, I thought it was the first track form the CD in 7 bit ASCII... Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
On dealing with a person who is angry with them: "We draw a halo around his or her head in our minds. Does this person stop being angry then? We don't know! We know, though, that when we draw a halo around a person, suddenly that person starts to look like an angel to us." John Lennon & Yoko Ono, from: The Cynical Idealist-A Spiritual Biography of John Lennon, by Gary Tillery... good advice!
For those who may not know, John's music and life have touched mine very deeply and I am grateful for that. Peace
I`m going to try to post this you-tube vid. hope it works .
Good job Stuman!********************************** By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity -- another man's I mean. Mark Twain
now that I got this you-tube video posting figured out . please let me know if I go overboard with the vid. posts . lol .
i was awaiting the arrival of my first unemployed Christmas, and feeling down and lonely and....and....well, you know how it goes, i came to this website, looking for refuge from the storm. i was able to find many caring souls that helped me thru the pain, and they have yet to stop helping me. i want to thank each and every one of you, from the bottom of my heart, for the joy and comfort you have given me. i know i have offended a few of you and for that i am truly sorry, you all know that some of my opinions differ from most deadheads (decidedly!) but love for the music has always brought us back to one another. God Bless you All, and here's hoping for a wondrous, happy, and fruitful New Year, not only for ourselves, but a healing for our country and the rest of this crazy world. rarrarrarrf!!!
...you were a bit suspect Johnman, especially when you jumped on my case like the third time I posted on this site ("religion, spirituality..."), but the gates open wide here and all are welcome! As it should be. As four Our Country and The Rest of This World, well... maybe when we stop dividing it up that way. ~ Talking alot about less and less, forgetting the love we bring ~
i don't think i was jumping so much as questioning, but it was not my intent to offend, and yeah, it's too bad the world is divided as it is. until that changes, i believe that if we all want peace, we need to work for justice......
I, for one, have never suspected anything but good intentions from Johnman. He and I have one or two issues where we certainly don't see eye to eye-but have always been 100% sure that his heart's in the right place.********************************** By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity -- another man's I mean.

it was only meant as a lame attempt at humor, not at all serious. lame-o gonzo
What's your fav between song Bobby joke or story? I always liked "No Nose". Har, har. " Where does the time go? "
sadly sarcasm doesn't always show in written text, and you have hit a major personality flaw in the head-can be hasty and ferocious to defend my pals, to the point of being rash!********************************** By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity -- another man's I mean. Mark Twain
I always liked the story`s of people in the Bobby zone getting spat upon by Bobby. One of the reasons I never sat in the front row at any shows . LOL
so much saliva could be FOUND in one person, gosh, he's like a faucet. think that might be the reason for the moustache?
it's ok.....i saw the humor in it!
... Bob used to let loose with the saliva when he sang? Or that he actually spit on people? I'd hate to think it was the latter...
But from what I`ve always heard he just used to let loose while he was singing . now keep in mind I only heard of this actually happening I never had the oportunity to be in the front row . now I have seen a few video`s where he did let some loose but that may be a little normal would`nt it be ? I`m not a singer either . I know some people spit when they talk so it would only make sense that some people would spit when they sing .
Bob was really into it most of the time, putting in 110%, especially on his vocals. If you're trying to "fill the sky withe flame" it stands to reason you're gonna put out a few joints in the front rows (yuk-yuk.)
the torrent of saliva emanating from bob's mouth. he wasn't actually spitting, but wow....i don't know how he could actually sing with the amount of liquid he was producing. the only visual i can think of that compares is sweat pouring off of someone during an extremely strenuous workout, and that still doesn't really compare. we used to get close enough to almost lean on the edge of the stage at the kaiser convention center in oakland and had a clear view of bob, just a few feet away.
I will be rooting for the Oregon Ducks, whose homefield is Autzen Stadium in Eugene, in the Rose Bowl! Now that I've my credit cards all paid off I should go see Furthur on new years eve, then head down to the Rose Bowl and see the Ducks, then head down to Baja and have a margaritta with a senoritta in Rosarita. But it would really suck if Furthur played FOTD, the Ducks lost, and I got mugged in Mexico, I think I'll just stay home. It's been a good year, why push it. I saw more shows this year,3, than I have since the mid-80's, wrote more songs this year than I ever have in my life,(you all inspire me), and had a couple nice road trips where, on one, I saw a ton of new country I've not seen before. Plus, I had my last beer on the 9th of this month, smoked my last bowl on the 24th, and am hoping to have my last cig tomorrow. I hope in the coming year I can get my act together and start playing some gigs. I wish you all a happy and healthy new year. Peace. Let there be songs, to fill the air
I'm looking to raise $800 to replace a speaker that was stolen from the KPFA performance studio. I believe this is a speaker that was originally donated by the Jerry Garcia estate. Regular listeners to Dead to the World have heard many great music broadcasts from that studio, and we have Grandpa Banana and his band coming in this week. KPFA is struggling (as are we all, I know) so it will be hard to find the money to replace this important piece of the studio. That's why I am asking for help here. You can send a check to KPFA, 1929 Martin Luther King Jr Way, Berkeley CA 94704, or Paypal to David@trufun.com with a note stating that it is for KPFA. I know we can make this happen. Thanks to all for reading this. someone found this on David`s facebook page . figure I`ll post it here also. KPFA could use the help as well as any public broadcasting radio or television station.
Any significance around the fact that all of the first names of all the "Furthur" boys not named "Bob" or "Phil" begin with the letter "J"? Theories, please...
I look at the drumstick I got at this show with it's flourescent green tape everyday
reminds me of how much of the show i missed while limping from the camping area...made it inside about 30 minutes before the dead took the stage.....and i started before the doobies came on. wish i'd had my new hip THEN...gonna make up for it in portland and break that sucker in RIGHT!!!....thanx to everyone involved in my miracle!!!
that must have been some hike, you're a trooper! May your Portland show be awesome!
the Box of Rain encore from this Gorge show can be found after Into the Mystic in the boxes below, it is a great video!!
but that shows you how much pain i was in. my son tried to stay with me but i insisted he go ahead, i didn't want him to miss anything, and i'm glad i sent him along...he was positively glowing after.

synergy hal, synergry... synchroenergy call it what you will. ain't logged in here for a while. I reckon I got your beams, peace my brother, thansk for them.got the message from your soul into my soul as I was just about to check in, posted this up in the other space about 5 minutes ago, some of you know where I mean, the DNC; and had it set to copy and paste here: if nobody never believed in interstellar, non-verbal, non-spoken, soul to soul synergetic connections, you really should now. ( -: **** good morning ladies and germs... (ba da dum) I only went back a few pages here, so I do not know what y'all been up to, but it seems everything is same same but different from my brief perusal. ( -: I hope everyone has been well, all y'all had a merry Christmas a happy new year, a glorious Festivus or whatever gets you through the night, and so on and so forth. ho ho ho. ( -: been on the road, back online for a few days, back in the little old house in Kinki. ice on the windows, snow on the mountains, gonna move further west from here, deeper into the far east gonna try to get warm. going backwards to try to get move foward. just trying to stay on the straight and narrow is all I can do.

music is the only medicine. well, that and burgandy wine... ( -; love&peace.
stepped out to take a shoval to the frozen compost heap, came up with this diddy: "Take this with a grain of wit, Time heals shit" peace.
and here is to Hal for his transedental 'shout out' (Hal has a gift in that area, you know). Good to hear/see that the travels and relocations were medicinal. I sometimes forget that for myself. Reading that Hunter reminded me of 'only the strange remain', and include myself in that 'club'. Take care, brother. The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.
thanks, Tim. *** cc's been drinking, out on a binge No reason why, the lights are dim Now he is shitfaced, on a plane Flying alone, he's going insane And now cc's gone Now cc's gone, Lord he's gone cc's gone With an elbow bending, it's a binge in fact cc's gone, gone, but someday he'll be back cc's gone cc's making a weak spoof, compost next to the hovel nothing left to do but shovel shovel shovel... *** well, after I get where I'm going, I might get back to where I been in my heart and soul. one day at a time, keep on keeping on. love&peace.

I am a 'tuff' guy, but I ain't strong... I truly ain't the only one to have ever lost a loved one, but she was the only one I ever truly loved. love&peace.
that's a beautiful, heartfelt statement.....my thoughts and prayers are with you....

Is one amazing talent that is for sure. I wonder if many Deadheads really got him when he played with the Dead. He sure has been in some amazing bands, ARU, Jazz Is Dead, Allman Brothers, Phil and Friends, the Dead and WSP. I know that when I saw him play with the Dead in 04 he seemed lower in the mix than Warren which was frustrating. Glad he has found his spot with WSP. Happy Birthday Jimmy.
