did we??

did we ever get the song parody topic? couldn'T find it if it is here, and I got anew one in mind that I was working out as I lay me down to sleep last night...

'Loose Goosie'

an excerpt:

'singing why oh why oh why oh why, why?
why do you yank my chain?'

song parody section

hows about a 'song parody' section??

it is a little different from the poet's corner, I think; and lots of fun. I've done a few song parodies, and Ami just did a grate one. it would be cool to see them all in one place, and then, hopefully encourage others to let their inspiration flow. just an idear.

peace.

come on......

thats the oldest way tribes communicate together.at night with a great fire burnin,they sit around in a circle and the elders pass their experience to the young warriors,who then tell their own stories because they are young and strong and its on their shoulders to defend the tribe.every indigenous people do it like this.american indians,beduins.nomads in mongolia etc....thats the way the torch gets passed from one gen.to the other...yeah and the aboriginees sit around in a circle too..tellin stories about the dreamtime:-)(-:

Frankly... Frankly

I'm one of those 3rd generations. I was born in 1980, first listened to the GD in 92, got my 1st 2 CD's in 1993 which I think were a pretty popular buy among CD's for Dead fans. In the Dark and Skeletons From the Closet. I already had a musical love from listening to the GD in the short amount of time listening to them when Jerry died. I remember walking down the stairs half way to my mom doing her hair saying Jerry died this morning. She likes country music and only told me because she knew I loved the GD. I said no way, and walked back up to my room and cried.

The breaker is my mom said you can see the Grateful Dead when you turn 15. I was happy. I had a very close cousin who had been the type of guy that not only goes show to show, he lived show to show. Well, anyways me and Jerry share birthdays (Aug. 1st) I turned 15 (in '95) and I was ready to find the next ticket. Seen that they were just in Chicago a few weeks ago at the time that July... Their last Venue. Days later after never finding out the next time they were going to come to the Chicago, Jerry ended up passing away on August 9th 1995 (we all know, but...) I just turned 15!

Anyways at least I've seen the Dead, and to me the closest thing other than them... Dark Star Orchestra. I can count over 200 CD's in my GD collection, but that was all before 2002. I have about 2000 hours of live GD from just the computer and internet. I love the dead, and have come across many dead heads with the same knowledge that I do! I admit tho, I lack the experience! And the experience outweighs the songs, time a lifetime. I could get a copy of every show they ever played, and never get to feel, see, smell, hear, or even fathom what it was actually like to be there. That's why I love you!

I love you all, good night...

winds of change

what about a topic which deals with the fact that there is an evident change of DH generations underway.there are rhe seniors who are coming into their 60s(or more) now,than the middle of the road who came on the bus late 70s and the new ones who never had the luck to see the GD because when jerry passed away they were like 5-10yrs. old.wow,its in fact allready the 3rd gen. of DH and the 1st to grow up only on canned music.i am sure that the folks of all these 3 groups might have alot of interesting stuff to tell one another..:-)(-:peace to all
