Sydney Pollack passed away on May 26. a hell of a nice guy, really down to earth. I met him once at a party I crashed on the upper east side round about the time just before or just after Tootsie came out. We talked for a long while, mostly about gangster stuff and the yakuza, and when I held up an extra ticket for the next night's show at MSG, and said "dude, you ever been to a Grateful Dead concert?" and this, I will never forget, he looked at me for like a full minute, and he said: "The Grateful Dead? those people never bathe" RIP, Syd, may the 4 winds blow you safely home. peace. (lest this gets burried in the now locked thread, and since he was a nice guy, totally un-pretentious, and he made some pretty cool films, I am re-posting this here)

I never understood why graduations were supposed to be such happy occasions. I knew damn well my college graduation meant leaving half the people I loved, never to see them again, and I was not in a celebratory mood. I will forever love Harry Reasoner (despite the Hippie Temptation) because the following year, at my eventually-to-be-ex's graduation, he was the speaker. And he said, you know, don't believe all that crap about graduations being a joyous occasion. The best years of your life are ending and the real crap is about to start. Well, he used slightly different words, but his meaning was unmistakable. I've always wondered if something similar was going on in the heads of the Acid Test Graduation participants. I suspect they knew it was a crock too.

My FAVORITE teacher ever has become my adviser. Ive suffered my current, terrible one for two years and now I got my request for a new one approved. shes a great person and a dead head herself. She even owns a parrot name pigpen who sings some GD lyrics if hes in a talky mood. BTW, thanks sooo much for that video gratefulmom. That made me laugh my ass off. My friends loved it. Also, Coral got into his new school, and is doing great. he wil have to make up a week of school during the summer, but hes cool with that. He says thatnks for all the well wishes and believes they helped.Peace, The Kid

Ive never met the parrot and the was a huge misunderstanding. her current parrot doesnot do GD stuff, but her old one did, who died last year. I saked her for some vids, but she clarified. so sorry. she never thoght to make vids because shes a scatter brain like myself, and she figured hed live for another forty years, the average parrot lifespan. He got really sick and passed on, so she never got a chance to make any vids.Peace, The Kid

Since you're a fan of randomness, and you brought up cod is the supper thread, here's a random anecdote from my past. When I was in college, a short handful of people from my dorm decided to take a quick weekend jaunt down to Cape Cod from Amherst. When you drive over one to the two bridges onto the Cape, it dumps you into a traffic rotary (or circle, or roundabout, depending on where you hail from) and in the middle of this rotary is a little landscaping featuring white rocks that spell out Cape Cod. Ever the pranksters, and this being the dead of night, they pull over and rearrange the rocks that spelled Cape to instead spell Eat. Somehow, after they returned from their exploits and told several of us about it, this expression "Eat Cod" became our default dismissive for the rest of the year. As in, "Oh, you don't like my shirt? Well you can just eat cod!" Anyway, thanks for reminding me of this arcane, historical morsel. And if anybody doesn't like my little story, well you can just eat cod! Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

I liked your story but (ironically) I also just had a nice, big piece of "Cheesy Cod"! How psychedelic is that? (~) ; - ) "Cosmic Charley, how do you do?"

is just 20 minutes away from me. I know that rotary well and the stones sign has been replaced by some hedges that are sculpted out to say Cape Cod. It actually looks pretty nice as it is grown out large and manicured in a sort of calligraphy. You would need Edward Scissorhands to change it today. Anyway though that was a funny prank from back in the day. Eat Cod! To Funny. http://www.capecodlivecam.com/bourne0.shtml Hey now Skenisahen!

what is synergy or synchronicity? like this guy, I refuse to grow up. Peter Pan syndrome: Term coined by pop psychology author Dan Kiley in his book "Peter Pan syndrome: Men Who Have Never Grown Up." "Peter Pan is in reference to J. M. Barrie's classic 1904 play in which a boy who refuses to grow up teaches Wendy and her younger brothers how to fly and then it's off to magical Neverneverland for adventures with mermaids, Indians, and wicked Captain Hook and his pirate crew. The play's full title was "Peter Pan, or, The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up." The Peter Pan syndrome is not at this time a medically accepted syndrome." I went to court trying to get worker's comp for my Peter Pan syndrome, saying how can I work? they got child labor laws, but the judge laughed in my face, threw my case out, AND charged me court costs. it IS true. peace.

there was a rock 'n' roll version of "I Won't Grow Up." I haven't heard it for many years and don't have time to look it up now, but as far as I'm concerned, the chorus of "If growing up means I must be/Anything I don't want to be/I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up/Not me!" is a top contender in the Words To Live By hierarchy.

I grew up in the back room of a saloon, learning that 'the customer was ALWAYS right' this is a case of how I got 5,000 bonus miles just for sending an email to explain what happened when I was trying to buy a tix online... being the squeeky wheel, so to speak. I refrained from using cuss words, and had my old lady edit up my shakey grammer and spelling... ( -; Message: To Thai Air: I would like to explain what happened when I spoke with reservation agents on the telephone yesterday. Online, I was trying to book an e-ticket, and I had an e-cert certificate that I was trying to use. I was unsure of the procedure, and called to inquire about it. I had searched for a flight and a price, but even after I had put in my e-cert number, and even after an E-Coupon icon appeared, the price remained the same. I did not want to click Purchase this Ticket before I saw the changed fare. I asked why the price had not been discounted. She asked if the ticket price was over 100 US$, and yes it is because this is a long flight. I was placed on hold (there is a timer on my cordless phone, so I am quite sure about the times) for 8 minutes. When the reservation agent returned, she told me she did not know, and I should use the information portion of the website to ask my question. I told her I wanted to book the ticket as soon as possible to get the best fare, because sometimes discount fares become sold-out, or lower priced seats suddenly become sold out. She told me she could not answer any more questions and my only option was to use the site. I tried to read through the FAQs, and so on, but could not get an answer to my question. I wanted to book the ticket before any discount fares were suddenly sold out. I called Thai air's ticket line again. I explained again. This time, the reservation operator asked for my schedule and flight numbers, etc. I was placed on hold for 9 minutes, when suddenly the phone line went dead. I immediately called back but getting a different person on the line, I asked to speak with the person I had just spoken to. I told her this was a flight ticket, and again gave all of the flight numbers. I was agian placed on hold, and after 13 minutes the phone line went dead again. I called again, and again, I told her how I had been on hold before and cut off twice, this time, she had the common sense to ask my telephone number in case we were cut off again. But, I had to explain everything again, and I finally learned that I am unable to use the e-coupon. I clicked on purchase this ticket, but the session had timed out, and I had to go back and re-enter all of the information again. Needless to say, it was a very long and frustrating experience trying to book this ticket, a major bummer, and a total buzz negator. Is there a problem with the phone lines? Essentially, it took me more than 90 minutes to finally book my ticket. The time to call, the time to explain, the time to wait on hold, and the time to enter all of my information again. It was all rather vexing. Sincerely, CC Joe Dear Mr. CC Sawat Di Ka. Thank you for contacting nwa.com Customer Service regarding the difficulty you had booking a reservation online with an e-certificate. We appreciate the time you took to write and tell us about your experience. On be half of Thai Air I apologize for the amount of time it took to get an answer to your question from our agents. I can understand how frustrating it would be to desire assistance and each time be disconnected. As our customer, you are in the best position to point out areas that need attention. Our goal is to provide consistent and accurate information to our passengers at all times. I am sorry that in this instance you did not receive the service you expected and should have received when you called the Customer Service to inquire about the use of the e-certificate. Feedback like yours will help us improve our process and overall customer experience. Please know I will be sharing your comments with the responsible leadership team for internal follow up. Please know we greatly appreciate your business as a Platinum Royal Thai Air Silk member. As a tangible expression of our appreciation and as an apology for the poor service you received I have added 5,000 Bonus Miles to your account. Please allow 2-3 business days to see these bonus miles added to your account. Again thank you for taking the time to write us about your experience and I am confident given the opportunity to serve you in the future, Thai Air will not only meet but exceed your expectations. Khop Phun Mak Ka. Sincerely, Ms. Songporn Nataruruj Thai Air Customer Resolution Department Bangkok, Thailand

the airlines usually respond and give 'something' even to semi-legit complaints like that one with the phone being dis-connected. there is a lot of competition in the air these days. and there are other choices. we do fly A LOT, so they also tend to 'respond' to steady custom, especially when worded so sweetly lke in my letter. ( -; and then there was the time I bitched, nicely in a letter, to NW about the fact there was no pillows, and got 10,500 miles, the time a reservation agent laughed at me, (well, she chuckled...) and I got 10,000 miles... I was pointing out a problem with a reservation. in a totally serious tone of voice, and she just chuckled. 'you think I'm funny? what am I? a clown? here to amuse you??!!' Pesci in Goodfellas I AM one of those guys who just tries to ek out as many miles as possible at every occassion. I even take convuluted, extremely time consuming routes because it adds up to more miles at the same fare. peace.

I got the book several weeks ago and really enjoyed it. Read it in two days on a rainy Northwest weekend. This book is about lots that is close to me, Washington and its forests, environmental activism and the Grateful Dead. I will be posting more in the literature topic at this site about it. Enjoy and spread the word. You are helping out a Deadhead author and a small independent publishing company. That is just so right.

after a very successful run on the tables, I am bucks up!! one of my, ummm, how shall I say, one of my 'backers' has been pusing me to front a pool hall, I'm a pushover... so probably might do so. the question of the day, what to name the joint?? I have always dreamed of having a pool hall with a simple name, like 'Joe C. Boss' Place' or simply 'CC's Pool Hall' and my 'proper name 'Jose Carlos Calio Hernandez Leal Delgado Sanz Fernández Luna Eduardo García Galván Los Muertos Agradecidos' Pool Hall is simply too damn long... but now, given the freedom to do whatever I want, what would be you advice about a name for the pool hall?? peace.
