    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

    badger, have fun with that Täze Elipbiýi over there in Whereverthefuckitisstan! safe travels. Turkmen Proverbs Words of Wisdom for Life by Gazanfar Pashayev http://azer.com/aiweb/categories/magazine/ai111_folder/111_articles/111… 3 from that page: Blood is dripping from his pen. (His actions hurt others.) Don't swear in the name of my grandfather who was a slave, And I won't swear in the name of your grandfather who was a wealthy landowner. (A person's ancestry is sacred, no matter what reputation they had.) A donkey with a load is still a donkey. (The true character of human beings who are evil is still evident even if presented as respectable. The proverb is used in a negative way about people of bad character.)

    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

    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.

I was merrily shopping and getting into the christmas scene. I joyfully got in my car and backed right into someone's car, waaaa I did damage to it and mine car too, it really sucks and the guy was a big jackass and called the cops even though I stayed and gave him my name and #, his car was so beat up anyway it had been sideswipes down both sides, and hit on every corner ,now that I hit the only good part of his car.He should of let a nice girl like me go, but NO he went on a rampage of how his car always gets hit and how he is sick of people! So now I get to pay to have this iditots bomb fixed!! Merry Christmas to me :(

mucho of the credit should go to deadicated since he coined the phrase 'Dark HalR' Mr Potato Head Deadhead? an honourable title, better than my "Corpulent Caboose Joe" a la "New Potato Caboose" Lyrics: Bobby Petersen Music: Phil Lesh Last leaf fallen, bare earth where green was born Above my doorknob, two eagles hang against a cloud Sun comes up blood red Wind yells among the stone All graceful instruments are known When the windows all are broken And your love's become a toothless crone When the voices of the storm sound Like a crowd Winter morning breaks, you're all alone The eyes are blind Blue visions are all a seer can own And touching makes the flesh to cry out loud This ground on which the seed of love is sown All graceful instruments are known peace.

a virtual game that's extremely popular. Avatars; and some chic actually made a million $$ real currency on the game. Second Life or something like that.Any one here have an Alter-ego-Avatar? I'm keeping the kids away from that one, just for the fact I know nothing about it, for that matter, is it even a kids game? I could always google it. he he

I have some friends who are really seriously into it. I personally don't see the appeal, but I'm not at all the target market, I don't think. I'm a text kinda girl and all that animated avatar stuff is way too much work! I tend to concur with your keeping the kids out. Yes, I think a lot of the media hype about predators lurking behind every virtual bush on the Internet is overblown and driven by various agendas I don't support at all. But STILL.

Well said! I guess I'm really out of the loop, but where does real money come into play? Cass enjoys Nick.com & neo pets, which I'm cool with. Kramer really likes an online game called ruenscape(sp?). I was a little leary at first,but we keep the computer in the dining room and they each get and hour a day. They can split that up between video games or computer time. Before we put a limit on it, things got a bit out of hand. Now we have a chart made up, bc we got really sick of one of them saying "he's had his time, she's had her time"...... What a trip! Never a dull moment PEACE

and I hope some Second Lifer will come along to correct me, you charge various enhancements on your credit card and people offer virtual environment-enhancing goods and services to make your online home just exactly perfect, for which of course they charge money. (If you believe the aforementioned media hype, commercial cybersex is quite the industry, for example.) Now me, I'd go YOU WANT REAL MONEY FOR SOMETHING THAT ONLY EXISTS IN SECOND LIFE??? ARE YOU INSANE??? But hey, I'm 60.

Its your sense, not your age, bc you are Right ON! I don't get it. Well, I know there are plenty of things I dont get. Here's one that 's bugging me: Cassidy is 8 yrs old. All of her little friends have gotten cell phones for Christmas. Well now, she's got her panties in a wad ~thanks nannie for that gem~ & I told her she can use our telephone whenever she likes. If she were a latchkey kid or a driver perhaps, but 8. Get REAL - just trying to pacify those damn kids, that's what I think Hells bells!

Is that for real? Wish I would have thought of it, you get money for nothing. Well the very positive aspect to me seems to be that maybe people would spend their money on virtual stuff and will stop buying all this real stuff and overloading our planet with junk and garbage.

I rarely set foot in a shopping mall, thank God, but had to over Christmas due to failing to shop online in a timely fashion. I am just appalled at the endless amounts of useless crapola and the constant pressure to buy it.

"There ain't a winner in the game, he don't go home with all, not with all" if only... if only it were true that I saw 866 shows... so I still feel like a loser. Bruiser If I saw a show for every post that I have drawn I could tell tall tales all night feelin' very keen Don't you count the posts baby cause that really blows And you know I'm only running from the cold All the shirts in my closet ain't got no collars And I ride all over this great wide land You can reach out and pick up a four leaf clover But I'll always win a game against THE MAN Last fair hustle in the country, sweet Susie Last fair hustle in the town Put your gold money where your game is baby Before you let me leave this old town Don't you count the posts baby cause that really blows Well I know almost nothing that you won't ever know Don't chew gum or a piece of hard toffee Gonna play with some suit and make'm feel woe Everybody's dragging but this cue is mine I can tell the 8 or 9 ball by the way they shine Pot the 9 ball on a clean hard break Well I got no chance of losing this time Well I got no chance of losing this time

not exactly sure where to post this, but I'm pretty sure this is the right place. For all who dont know, I'm a sixth grader, and I promptly display that I'm a dead head...(writing about the dead in journal...wear shirts with "dancing deady bears") so she came up to me about 2 weeks ago and said that her boy friend was looking through his basement and found a box of dead live recordings. She snatched one out for me and gave it to me...here's the stuff written out on it (stuff in parenthesis are my comments): LIVE DEAD (kinda ironic) Boston 1 9/30/93 Sunshine Spoonful Canoyman El Paso Broken Arrow Stagger Lee Easy Ans. Dont Ease Brokedown JARHUNDERT HALLE 4/26/72 COMES A TIME SUGAR MAGNOLIA (appeared in capital on tape) ---------------------------------------- I'm not a real hard core dead head and only know a few of their songs, but they are my favorite band. The only song I know on it is sugar magnolia, and I dont know what the last part in capital means, with the second date and all... I'm about to check the tapers section to get a better sense of the songs. Any suggestions as to which ones are real good would be greatly appreciated...I havnt listened to the tape yet because my parents are divorced, and I'm going to be with my mom for another week or two, and my mom doesnt have a tape player at her house...the only one I know of is in my dad's car (which is pretty old).

you can look up the details of the two shows on your tape here on this site through 'SHOWS AND LYRICS', select the year of the show and click on the date. It should show the venue and setlist JA(h)RHUNDERT HALLE is a concert hall in Germany where the Dead played on 4/26/72 You can buy an official CD of selections from that show if you like it, called '100 Year Hall' I suggest you get your hands on some more of those tapes, but as to what is good and what is not....well that is of course entirely up to you!

Here's one for you....Cosmo the deadhead is at the end of his rope. He's broke, half a continent away from his folks and he needs to get home. All he has left is his dog, Astro. He spies a likely yuppie couple on the way to their Porsche. He says, "Excuse me, I'm broke and I want to sell my dog for bus money. He's special dog, he even talks! Ask him something." The man seems appalled, but the woman is itrigued. "Oh Dale, that would be so kewl! OK, doggie, what's your favorite dead song?" Astro barks "Wharf, wharf, wharf". The couple laugh at this and leave, without buying Astro, of course. Astro looks at Cosmo and says, "maybe I should have said Playin'?"
