from zed to zee

Large quantities of the troublesome and non conformist letter z were loaded in sealed crates aboard the ‘Mayflower’ along with a hundred or so similarly inclined people in an early and misguided attempt at nation building.

They lay hidden for centuries slowly and dangerously mutating from zeds to zees until discovered by Mr Webster and let lose on the world without consideration of the damage they would do. Now they and their like (Starbucks, Microsoft, MacDonalds, Rhino Records) are everywhere and no amount of embittered sarcasm from the old country can stamp them out.

The Letter "Z"

In addition to a great album by MMJ, it is a versatile and spicy letter of the alphabet. Why then, are the folks across the pond so afraid to employ it's amaZing attributes?

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my underground lair.

it WAS the 7/7/89 show that was the ery last show EVER at JFK, before the condemened the building, those walls sure came tumbling down that night...

well, well, well, good ole' Pa. always a favorite place to tour, lots of rolling hills and beaUtiful coutry side. We especially loved visiting Amish country, hanging with the folks, talking about life and philosophy. Remarkably nice people, who certainly embraced a the golden rule. Those Quakers were certainly interesting folks, too-- but for some reason they always looked at us funny when we mentioned "oatmeal" We learned alot about non-violent civil disobedience in those daze, and added to our general well being by being around folks who weren't trying to "preach" us into their church, but kind people who were happy to share a meal and a chat about life and love of life. Once outside of the "tourist" spots, just meeting real regular folks was always a joy.

Hershey Chocolatte never tasted so good as it did on that tour back in 85, I remember taking the factory tour with a bus load of freaks and there were plenty of "special" Hershey kisses that night. ( -; well, it tasted good until, SOMEONE, not mentioning any names (ACE McDANGER!) had the bright idea of blowing all of the gas money by buying a whole case or two of fucking chocolatte bars and we had to siphon off from another tribe of friends to get back on the road... I remember we got just barely enough fumes to make it down to Merryland south for the next couple of shows, but we had to forgo the journey out to STEELERS country in "it's the Pitts" Burg because of his antics and his whim to buy fucking chocolatte... fucking Ace McDanger, he was always a 'card' so to speak. He nearly cried when he learned that there were no M&Ms in Hershey, Pa!

peace.

ONE MORE SHOW IN PA

Actually I wondered about that JFK listing (on 7-10-87 and 7-7-89). But never having ventured east, I just quoted from the Base.
I did screw up the count however.
It was 67 shows in Phillidelphia and the total count from PENNSYLVANIA was 101 shows (again Deadbase XI) .
The other shows were in;
Bethlehem 1
Burgettstown 2
Easton 1
Harrisburg 2
Lancaster 1
Hershey 1
Lewisburg 1
Meadville 1

there was also a show in good old SCRANTON back in the 70's at the CYC. i think it was 71, but not sure it's in the archives though.
nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile

I don't know...

I don't know nuthing about those dragons, but when I looked them up on the internet they all seemed to have their tail in their mouth, so I was wondering about the piece you gave jerry.

I dig that "is it the end or beginning" refernece, apt, certainly apt.

this (the posting of oroboroses? oroboroi?) got started when I felt a certain deja vu kick ifrom some scenes from the wild wild west of the old daze. well, who knows?
is it the end or the beginning? ( -;

is it silence on the edge of music?

I would not want anyone to think I am feckless in this ever brief moment of clarity, for I am one who is most certainly full of "feck"

peace.

Answer to CC Joe's Question

Yes, it did. The dragon I gave Jerry did have the tail in it's mouth, much like your second pictured Oroboros, as opposed to the first. The one I made was a wingless dragon (but a quadroped as opposed to biped).
However, it did find a way to fly that New Year's evening of '77 in Winterland.
Or was that me?
