    Sydney Pollack
    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.

    Awesome weekend
    Had an AMAZING weekend. Went to a battle of the bands in willamantic supporting wildlife conservation and the conservation of the river. four amazing bands (well, at least three, one had a terrrrrible vocalist) great BBQ, dead heads galore. One band was a tribute band though they also wrote their own stuff. Also bought tons of books in providence. check out the band that won the battle, a band called "The Line" also, there was this amazing girl there named Desiree who is on youtube and the like. check her out as she is very young but an amazing player.Peace, The Kid

    more on old school
    more on old school I think the another big thing about being old school, or the old school heads on tours and the touch heads, was the general policy of 'self-policing' the community. as an example, nobody gave a shit if people were dringking themselves silly in the parking lots, BUT once someone threw a bottle and broke it, the older heads would chide the dude who did that. then, the 'old school' heads would go clean up the mess. being old school has nothing to do with age, mind you. sure, I was fucking around on the board one day and posting lots of crap, I did kind of fuck up because I did think I was in the chat room thread and not the news thread; bt that is not the point, once someone, in this case, marye said, dude, chill out with this, I stopped. I apologised, and that was that. end of story. end of issue. Door # 3??? clearly that would be marye up-loading a digi copy of her old cassette tapes of her interview with jerry which I really hope to 'hear' someday. peace

    Let's Make A Deal!
    thanks, marye. that is really a compliment. I am afraid it 'would pale in comparrison' to the last one, since I think that one was just exactly perfect... but.... I'll make a deal with you, if you scan those negs and make digi images of those 2 most excellent Jerry pics (you know which ones-- how sweet they are) and email them to me,I'll write it up again.

CCJ: You follow me up with cop footage? Party foul! Note to self: stop posting videos here Mom: I partied in Wildwood, NJ for prom weekend 1991. One of the best drugs/alcohol filled weekends of my life. Probably some of the most fun I'll ever have. Wild scene hardly covers it. But! The vibe was great and everyone survived it without jail. They'll be fine. | I'm just a, well...porpoise. |

prom night 1991!!! you frigging youngins!! God bless ya! ( -; the cop vids were in response to badger's post. There once was a brother and a sister, fraternal twins, who were approaching their high school graduation. It was getting near prom night and neither of them had a date for it. So one day, the girl approaches her brother and says "Hey, you got a date for the prom yet?" He says "No, why? You got someone lined up for me?" "You might say that. Why don't you take me to the prom?" "Take you? You kidding? You're my sister!" "Well, are you taking somebody else out?" "You know I don't have a date, Sis." "And neither do I. But we both want to go to the prom, don't we?" Her brother nods. She continues, "So we should go with each other." The brother can't see anything wrong with her reasoning, so he tells his sister that if neither of them has a date by Wednesday evening, he will take her to the prom. Wednesday evening rolls around. Neither of the siblings has a date, so the brother tells his sister that he'll take her to the prom on Friday. At the prom, both of them have a good time. The brother is glad that his sister talked him into taking her. Then, while he's standing at the punch bowl, his sister comes up to him again. "Hey, brother, let's dance." He looks around to make sure that nobody heard her. "Look, Sis, this is the Senior Prom, okay? I'm not going to dance with my own sister at the prom, okay?" "Don't be so shy. Look, Jimmy Elder is dancing with his cousin. So why can't you dance with your sister?" "Oh . . . all right." So they dance, a slow number. The rest of the prom passes by and after a while it's over and time to go. Both of them have had a good time. In the car, with the brother at the wheel, the sister looks over at him and says, "Let's not go straight home." He gives her a curious look and says, "What are we going to do instead?" "Oh, I don't know. Just drive around." He agrees, and after they have driven around a while, out in the country, she looks over at him again and says "Want to find some place to park?" "Hell," he says, "are you crazy? You're my sister, I'm not going parking with you!" "Who said anything about 'going parking'? Let's just pull over somewhere and talk for a while, okay? It's been a busy year for both of us-- how long has it been since we've had a chance to talk to each other?" So she finally talks her brother into pulling the car over on a secluded back road, and after a few minutes of idle talk, she looks over at him again. "Hey . . . " she says. "What?" "Why don't you kiss me?" "You've been suggesting a lot of weird things lately, you know that? I'm not going to kiss you, you're my sister!" And he reached for the ignition switch to start the car. She reached out and took his hand. "I know I'm your sister. You've mentioned that a lot lately. And you're my brother. And don't we love each other? Why shouldn't we kiss if we feel like it?" She kissed him on the cheek and he kissed her back. After a few minutes of kissing, she whispered in his ear, "Come on. Let's do it." "Do what," said her brother, but he had a good idea of what his sister had in mind. "You know what," his sister replied. "I can't do that with you, you're my . . . " His voice trailed off. While he was on top of her, his sister murmured, "You know, you're a lot lighter than Dad." "I know," said her brother. "Mom told me."

It Must Have Been The Doses CC j grew his hair down to his toe-ses He had scabies, lice, and fleas in his long black hair I don't know, maybe it was the doses All I know, he couldn't give a care I don't know, it must have been the doses The doses and the scabies in his long brown hair I don't know, maybe it was the doses All I know, was he took them all there Ten sheets of blotter rolled up and got for free Sounds echo in his ear like a cool symphony If I take another, whaddaya think will happen to me? Let me take some more doses and float me out to sea I don't know, it must have been the doses The doses and the scabies in his long brown hair I don't know, maybe it was the doses All I know, was he took them all there One brown tab, put him in limbo Everyone's complaining, though, 'come on, we want some more Memories fade from shadows and now it's all lore And it's strange how no one doses any more I don't know, it must have been the doses The doses and the scabies in his long brown hair I don't know, maybe it was the doses All I know, was he took them all there in honour of the dude who invented that shit who just died, and honourable mention to Chilly Cheese Dog Dave who always used to sing 'It must have been the doses' at the top of his lungs at every show; fucking up every tape I ever recorded at shows. peace.

Happy mothers day. had a great day helping my mom in the garden. scary stuff with the tasers. remember that dont tase me bro kid? my dad (the fascist) thought that was hilarious. I asked him if he wanted to be tased, and that shut him up quick. thanks for the good wishes to coral. hes having a tough time getting into other schools, while the kid thats the addict is already at another prestigious school because his parents had the money to cover his indiscretion up, while coral was here on financial aid and a partial scolarship. My prefect is agonizing that he had to do what he had to do. he is prolegalization but he has a high sense of personal duty. sorry about the tangent/rant, i didnt take my meds today so im off in ADD land.Peace, The Kid

Last night's show at The Greek in L.A. was superb. Explosive from the moment of initial stage presence all throughout the first song: "Shakedown". For the entire performance, Jackie Green was in top form, as was Mr. Cambell. Molo was a dynamo. Phil was beyond stunning, as he gently led his band mates across a vast array of tunes with a vengence. I can only give this show a 5 on Setlist.com, but if there's a scale that goes to 100, then that's what it gets! It also seemed that the National Guard of Los Angeles' Greek Theatre has relaxed it's "sit the fuck down & put out that smoke, OR ELSE" policy. That's a big factor in the experience. I think Phil & Friends felt it too. What a special night... Where's the tape? I can only hope that Ratdog will half as good a night next month there.

I do not want to put this in the religion thread; but I've had 3 passports. (10 year passports) all with the extra pages added in because the origianl pages were not enough, and because you can get the extra pages added for FREE while it costs money to get a new passport. That is working up to 30 years of ijnternational travel, and yeah, they are US passports, because nobody recognizes my self made passports from 'Dark Star' I put the Taj story in because I met a cool deadhead there. overly touristy or not, I could look past that and enjoy the serene beauty and have a grate time. I do suggest everyone go there, and if you go, go before sunrise, you can enjoy most of your time without the throngs of people. sharp as a cue ball. gotta love life. peace. peace.
