U.S. Blues, by Ed Watts
Available on Amazon here:
Wisconsin: 1985. When Peter Van de Carr stumbles across a body outside a Grateful Dead show, he decides that solving the murder is his last chance to save any idealism left in the Deadhead scene. The only problems are: he has no idea how to conduct a murder investigation, the cops don't want his help, and after a lifetime of drugs his mind is about as sharp as a Frisbee.
As Peter stumbles toward finding the killer of the little-known victim, an obsessive taper at the shows, he brings the reader with him through the seedy and humorous underbelly of the Deadhead subculture of the mid-80's. The world of endless drugs, burnt-out disillusionment, and ever-present paranoia of the Reagan regime form the backdrop to a crime that proves to be far more bizarre than even Peter imagined . . .
A hilarious addition to the stoner noir genre, U.S. Blues has enough suspense to keep you turning the pages, and enough laugh-out-loud moments to make you root for Pete and his fellow "Guinea pigs of a failed experiment."

For 20 years I have been the owner of one of the rarest Dead memorabilla. In 1992 a combined effort between the Grateful Dead and the Olin/K2 ski Co. allowed for the release of only 1000 pairs of the original limited edition Grateful Dead Dark Star skis. I have enjoyed showing them to family and friends and looked forward to passing them down someday. It seems that day has come sooner than later. I currently reside in northern NV where things have been really bad and I have spent the last 3 1/2 searching for decent employment. I dont want to spend another day living this way. I realize the only one going to save me is me, not a job, career or boss that isnt out there. These skis are among possibly 100 pairs or less that were never mounted or skied. My intention is to sell them to a serious collector and use the money to start my own business. Soon my idea will go patent pending and will be able to begin manufacturing my little idea (takes money to make money) selling them slowly at first and picking up speed as I go. If things go well maybe I can help some other out-of-work folks in NV too. Know anyone serious about owning them let me know and thanks for reading my post.
Hey Now! This is the time of year I would ordinarily start planning for summer fun. This year, however, life isn't very fun:-( I'll try to make a long story short. I've been diagnosed with "Bilateral Femoral Avascular Necrosis". In laymen's terms, I've got severe degenerative osteoarthritis of the hips, and I need total hip replacement. I've been denied THREE times by Social Security and Medicaid. They say I can still work! I can barely make it to the bathroom, let alone work. I'm waiting on a hearing which could take up to 14 months! I haven't worked since 03/31/2011. My savings is almost drained and bills are piling up. I've set up a fundraising page at "GoFundMe.com" to try and get some ching. There's lots of success stories at the site, but I'm not one of them yet. I would REALLY APPRECIATE IT if someone, or group of someone's would be kind-hearted enough to help me out. ANY amount would be appreciated, I think donations are tax-deductible too. Here's a link to my page:http://www.gofundme.com/BenFranklinYoungstownOhio PLEASE consider helping a deadhead REALLY down on his luck. I'm at the end of my rope emotionally, physically, and financially!
I'm selling 3 of Lucky's nicest Steal Your Face glass pendants to help me get to Colorado from the East coast for Phil and Friends on my birthday this Friday. These are all new and in perfect condition.
If you have any questions, you can contact me on ebay or at matthewmockus(at)gmail.com
