for digging out those Halloween 80 bits with Franken and Davis. Some of the stuff they did that night was pretty funny. Like Al and Tom making Brent introduce them because he was "the new guy." "Ladies and gentlemen, Frank and Dave." And the between set update that "they'd found one of the barrels" that were allegedly placed at the simulcast sites to collect donations there. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
I am just a youtube junkie! I totally fucking love that thing, and the thanks really should go to the folks who post that shit up there because it does take a LONG time to do, though it is certainly my pleasure to share cool shit with the kind folks here. every once in a while I do a search for dead related stuff, and am constantly amazed at what I have found. naturally like all internet shit, there is a ton of total CRAP, but wade through the shit and reach in deep and squeeze some of the turds, you often come up with diamonds. or are those just undigested airline peanuts??? ( -:
silly, airlines don't give out peanuts anymore! got a little to much energy this morning;)? please keep us posted(pun) on the goings on in here, strange things lately,good work,must go now the snakes are stirring
fly Malaysian Air, dude; fly Thai air... they still give out peanuts. Malaysian Air has a very delicious satay appetiser, chunky peanut sauce. I am sure I left behind plenty of undigested nuts after those flights.
more colorful visuals!~~~ must not be alot of peanut allergies on that side of the rock

I know its late, but still, happy birthday. Still dont have a computer, or at least a usable one. Using a public one in the library. As Ive said before, I now am involved in radio and have a show. We will soon be streaming online, and I intend to air some of the archive shows, as well as a good deal of live recordings if I can find some, and maybe some interviews with Jerry. Might be takin requests too. sorry if this is all a bit off topic. Any suggestions for my show would be great as I still dont have a format in mind. PM me with any ideas. ThanksPeace, the kid
back in a few weeks, folks. sitting in the airport AGAIN waiting to get on yet another long flight. peace
travel safe, and come back to us soon with more stories of your adventures.
Safe travels CCJ. I sometimes wonder Joe, if we crossed paths in an airport bar somewhere would we recognise each other? I saw a dude in Bangkok airport a while back that could have been you, 'cept the trousers were all wrong!!!! I am in Munich Airport right now en route to Siberia for a couple of weeks. Probably for the best..things have been getting a bit heavy round here lately. Sorry if I've been laying on a bit thick at times, been sick and grumpy for my entire one-week turn around between travels and well...some stuff just gets to me. have fun in deadheadland and catch you later.
You´ve been down, Badger. Had been wondering whether your mood was not so good.********************************** Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live. Samuel Clemens
feel better man. have fun in siberia. wheres deadheadland? can i catch a ticket at an airport, or in my mind? or perhaps a music store. g2g history class just started.Peace The Kid
Saturday for a 3 year old little boy with leukemia.....Wow they raised over $10,000 for the little guy....Bikers are so giving!!!! It was fun with a band and all..and lots of beer!!I never saw so many bikes in one place...so cool!!
too funny. I was there and they had a big screen, Franken & Davis were bizarro. That was a great run of shows. we were all jerry's kids that night. Ami
I just want to say hey. Been listening to the Dead since the very late 80's. Never seen a show, although I have seen JGB and Ratdog and The Dead without Jerry. Been to many shows while they played the Knickerbocker but just never made it inside. The music has meant so much to me throughout the years that it is hard to comprehend sometimes. That is all for now. "Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile"
this has bothered me for years now, i need substantiation please. does anyone ELSE remember the boys being on "hootn'anny" or similar tv show, around workingman dead release playing "uncle johns band"? or how about some weird movie about a party, i think peter sellers and pia zoa(sp) were the stars, as the camera pans thru the door on thru the main room passing the live band playing, it pans the band members briefly and i swear my minds eye sees all the boys in late 60's glory and thats it, they're gone,pan to beach, no memory of the tune, pretty acidity stobes light show oil globs on walls. could of been around time they where living in lalaland, tring to pay the rent? validate me or flat out no way!
Albert Hofmann, father of drug LSD, dies in Switzerland By FRANK JORDANS – 14 hours ago GENEVA (AP) — Albert Hofmann, the father of the mind-altering drug LSD whose medical discovery inspired — and arguably corrupted — millions in the 1960s hippie generation, has died. He was 102. Hofmann died Tuesday at his home in Burg im Leimental, said Doris Stuker, a municipal clerk in the village near Basel where Hofmann moved following his retirement in 1971. For decades after LSD was banned in the late 1960s, Hofmann defended his invention. "I produced the substance as a medicine. ... It's not my fault if people abused it," he once said. The Swiss chemist discovered lysergic acid diethylamide-25 in 1938 while studying the medicinal uses of a fungus found on wheat and other grains at the Sandoz pharmaceuticals firm in Basel. He became the first human guinea pig of the drug when a tiny amount of the substance seeped onto his finger during a laboratory experiment on April 16, 1943. "I had to leave work for home because I was suddenly hit by a sudden feeling of unease and mild dizziness," he subsequently wrote in a memo to company bosses. He said his initial experience resulted in "wonderful visions." "What I was thinking appeared in colors and in pictures," he told a Swiss television network for a program marking his 100th birthday two years ago. "It lasted for a couple of hours and then it disappeared." Three days later, Hofmann experimented with a larger dose. The result was a horror trip. "Everything I saw was distorted as in a warped mirror," he said, describing his bicycle ride home. "I had the impression I was rooted to the spot. But my assistant told me we were actually going very fast." "The substance which I wanted to experiment with took over me. I was filled with an overwhelming fear that I would go crazy. I was transported to a different world, a different time," Hofmann wrote. Hofmann and his scientific colleagues hoped that LSD would make an important contribution to psychiatric research. The drug exaggerated inner problems and conflicts and thus it was hoped that it might be used to recognize and treat mental illnesses like schizophrenia. For a time, Sandoz sold LSD 25 under the name Delysid, encouraging doctors to try it themselves. It was one of the strongest drugs in medicine — with just one gram enough to drug an estimated 10,000 to 20,000 people for 12 hours. LSD was elevated to international fame in the late 1950s and 1960s thanks to Harvard professor Timothy Leary who embraced the drug under the slogan "turn on, tune in, drop out." But away from the psychedelic trips, horror stories emerged about people going on murder sprees or jumping out of windows while hallucinating. Heavy users suffered permanent psychological damage. The U.S. government banned LSD in 1966 and other countries followed suit. Hofmann maintained this was unfair, arguing that the drug was not addictive. He repeatedly argued for the ban to be lifted to allow LSD to be used in medical research. Peter Oehen, a psychiatrist in the Swiss town of Biberist, says substances such as LSD and MDMA — also known as ecstasy — can produce results where conventional psychotherapies fail. "They help overcome the wall of denial that some patients build up," said Oehen, who met Hofmann and has studied his work. Hofmann welcomed a decision by Swiss authorities last December to allow LSD to be used in a psychotherapy research project. "For me, this is a very big wish come true. I always wanted to see LSD get its proper place in medicine," he told Swiss TV at the time. Hofmann took the drug — purportedly on an occasional basis and out of scientific interest — for several decades. "LSD can help open your eyes," he once said. "But there are other ways — meditation, dance, music, fasting." Even so, the self described "father" of LSD readily agreed that the drug was dangerous if in the wrong hands. This was reflected by the title of his 1979 book: "LSD - my problem child." In it he wrote that, "The history of LSD to date amply demonstrates the catastrophic consequences that can ensue when its profound effect is misjudged and the substance is mistaken for a pleasure drug." Hofmann retired from Sandoz in 1971 and devoted his time to travel, writing and lectures. "This is really a high point in my advanced age," Hofmann said at a ceremony in Basel honoring him on his 100th birthday. "You could say it is a consciousness-raising experience without LSD."

UFOINK! Cheezy I know, but I had to say it. PEACE
how's tricks?! peace.
ain't got time to take no fast train...Looking forward to Phil's band tomorrow and Friday at the Fillmore. Anyone in deadnetland gonna be there ? I'll have some photos to post afterward. Gosh, I think he might do Mustang Sally in honor of Wilson Pickett!!
I wish I were (going to be) there but I'm on the other coast... have a grate time and be sure to post some pics along with a report. I'm excited that the summer touring season is underway! Take care! "You know what the trouble about real life is? There's no danger music."

My daughters High School just got this system to make calls to everyone in the school system when there is an emergency...like school closing early or something like that anyway this morning I just got the first call from the school, telling us that our Vice principal was arrested for a controlled substaince without a perscription!! OMG is that what the calls are for.. gossip! I thought a person was innocent until proven guilty...they also said that they are telling all the kids in school today. What are they kidding me!! What do you think?? Is that a good idea??
Gossip, you calld Gigi, I think that's a waste. An alert for TRUE emergencies sounds like a pretty good idea, but this is more like a party line kind of thing. Why even say anything to the kids? This school yr will be over way before the guy goes to trial, or whatever they plan to do with him. Who knows what's going on with the VP, but I'm sending some Positive Beams his way, he must feel really Low about now. Maybe Positive is not the right word...
That is a little bizarre, to say the least. My kids schools have had this system in place for over a year now. It's used to contact parents in the event of an emergency, early closing, and snow days or unannounced closings. So far it seems to work ok. But anouncements like that, you know its gonna get stranger, so lets get on with the show, lets go.; )
If you ask me. As you said perfectly-Gigi, a person is innocent until proven guilty. Also such a "crime" is not exactly something that needs to cause such a hooplah as calling all of the parents, or telling the students. Is creating a huge deal, where may be none.********************************** Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live. Samuel Clemens
since he was arrested for allegedly stealing prescription medications that belonged to students. What a Vice Principal! What a world we live in!!
Well, that sounds worse than it did this morning. It's IS Strange how things unfold..... That is a great line stellablue, thanks :-)
Last night the news, NJ 12 which reports mostly on the southern part of NJ, was reporting on a principal or vice principal who was arrested for dealing drugs in school. At least thats what I thought they said, or perhaps it was stealing. Good God, where do they find these people.
yep that was it stellablue he was stealing the students drugs that the nurse was holding for them, sick huh!!
A couple traveling cross country decided to stop for a cup of coffee in a local diner somewhere in the Mid-West. While they were sitting at a booth near the counter sipping their coffee, a local cowboy strides in and heads for the closest stool at the counter. As he lifts his leg over the stool, he cuts one of the loudest farts they had ever heard. The tourist jumps up and yells, "Sir, how dare you fart like that before my wife!" The cowboy, tipped his hat politely and says, "I'm awful sorry ma'am - I didn't know we was takin' turns." ********** A cowboy and a southern baptist minister were riding on a plane. The flight attendant came up to the cowboy and asked "Sir, would you like something to drink? perhaps a soft drink, juice, or how about a nice ice cold beer!" The cowboy replied, "Why yes ma'am, an ice cold beer sure would go down right smooth I reckon." She turned to the baptist minister, "How about you pastor - would you like a beer also?" The baptist minister replied, "Young lady, we do have other options. To save my soul I'll rather be stripped naked and ridden raw by the scarlet whore of Babylon than allow that Devil's urine to touch my lips!" The excited cowboy then said, "Ma'am, you can take my beer back and get me that there other option!"
Stealing is one thing, the guy may have problem with the meds and needs some help. Dealing to kids would be a whole different animal. At least for the moment it sounds like you will be well informed (phone rings, 5:00 am,"This is a recorded message from your school, have you heard the latest about the principal........) Sorry, couldnt resist. Drumrolllllllllllllllll......CRASH! Thanks, Joe. Now excuse me while I clean the coffee and spit off my screen.
Phil looks real good and put on a grate show. Openned up with Loose Lucy !! > check the photos and setlist at the link below. http://www.phillesh.net/philzonepages/friends_stuff/setlists/080508.html
It's pouring rain here in NJ, but we are doing a anti rain dance right now for it to stop for awhile then it can start sgain when they get in the dance!! So funny my twin girls and their friends are doing their hair and makeup for them...fighting over the bathroom and curling irons,,,LOL!! Oh to be 18 and prom night so much fun!! Wish me luck!! Rain Rain go away!!
Mom, they still got that Jungle Habitat cheeze ball animal park in South Jersey?? if memory serves, it was near the shore, or near Great Adventure. when was it, back in the 70's, maybe circa the 77 or 78 tour time we took a fairly LONG detour in the old giant tie-dye station wagon through there. that was a fucking trip. never one to be able to follow rules, I couldn't resist opening the windows just a bit and got clobbered by an ostrich peck. pretty fucking feckless on my part, and as anyone will tell ya, I am usually full of 'feck' ( -; peace.
I can understand why they would use the "emergency" system for that and tell the kids. as a high school student I have witnessed how fast rumors can spread and mutate. For example, A friend of mine went home for two days due to a family emergency, and by the time she got back the three most popular rumors (and believed) were that A) she was pregnant, B) she had eloped with someone she met online, C) that she had tried to commit suicide. So who knows, if they hadnt told the students, chances are that by the end of the day the concensus would be that the VP is a drug smuggler raised in Columbia by a drug cartel family. Either that or that he was running a large meth lab in the school's basement.BTW my good friend Coral got kicked out lastg night after being found with drugs. send him some good vibes as it wasnt even his pot. Peace, The Kid
if it isn't the politician's saying we're not doing our jobs or some pedophile coach or teachewr that crosses the line, it's the administration! This is how teachers get a bad rap! Gigi, a lot of districts have that "all call" sysytem, they were trying to do a little damage contreol and let you know before the rumor mill began. sad story, sad state of things, but if you only knew what walks in a school district (computers, software, etc...) then kids' drugs wouldn't surprise you. Hey, besides the ADHD stuff and a few inhalers- what's he got? Well, he got himself caught, lost his certification, hjis pension is taken if he's found guilty (we have a morals clause) and he'll never be in education again, so it'll start a trend for other districts to check their meds and to make new policies on their storage and such. Hope the prom was good and all else is well. And I thought some of my past administrators were bad! Ami
The girls looked beautiful!! Even in the rain :) The limo driver was 2 hours late ahhhhhhh! But it all worked out and they had a blast! Now they go down to the Jersey shore "Wildwood" for a lovely alcohol free weekend...Hahahahahahahahaha yeah right God will only know what goes on down there, I just pray no call from the POLICE man and they come home safe. As for our VP they suspended him with pay. CCjoe I never heard of that place, it sounds freaky!! Deadheadkid I'm sending goodvibes to Coral!
I'm back, but with video. It just occurred to me that shameless self promotion is a victimless crime. So, am I the victim or, well, nevermind. The Happiness! | I'm just a, well...porpoise. |
cool! good to see youback, Sken. We've missed ya.
I have been hit by a stun gun in a controlled situation as a test of it, I had a bite stick in my mouth and was laying on a soft bed, held down so I wouldn't hurt myself:; it was not fun. I fear the tasers in the hands of pigs like THIS GUY more than from civilians... check this firghtening shit out. the last one is probably the scariest, fucking pigs. that said, I respect law enforcement people, but not that guy. clearly an abuse of power, and to laugh about it later... what an asshole. so people, please, PLEASE, keep your hands on the wheel, follow the instructions, take the ticket without arguement, get a lawyer; and take it to court. peace.
