    Has anyone heard anything…

    Has anyone heard anything about Grateful Dead Meet up at the Movies for 2022? Before the pandemic, movie theaters would show a Dead concert on Jerrry Garcia's birthday.

    Grateful Dead on the NFL

    During the NFC Championship game just now, when they went to a tv break the music they played during the transition was Estimated Prophet. I saw another game recently where they played Saint Of Circumstance. Those are pretty deep cuts for the NFL.

    Does not Ann Coulter get into Dead, too? Someone should tell them Sen. Al (Kissinger on Dead Ahead) Franken gets into the band quite a bit. Hey repo, check out his bona fides on his knowledge of jams...

    Here is a weird encounter. …

    Here is a weird encounter. My family has a summer house in Bryant Pond, ME, Two properties down there is a studio that Tucker Carlson (yeah, that guy) broadcasts from. My brother and I were taking a walk and we saw ol' Tucker working on his vintage pick-up. As a good neighbor I introduced myself, and we had an interesting (non=political) talk - in his studio was a picture of his circa early 90's with Jerry Garcia. The dude had been to over 50 concerts! Who knew??

    Weir on Deadline Whitehouse

    Anyone catch Ari Melber interview Weir today? It was a fast interview, but enjoyable. Looks like they had to edit it down to fit on TV but it was nice with some substance. Cool! Have a Grateful Day! :-)

    P.S. The interview just happened so it hasn't been uploaded yet, but when it is it would probably show up here:

    Republicans

    Hello all, I'm from Europe and not really a Grateful Dead fan, I listen to a lot of music from the 60's and 70's though. After visiting an American music forum I noticed that a lot of Deadheads were Trump supporters and this confused me. How is this possible? The band as I understand stood against everything this band represented. Would you say that Grateful Dead has always been a band which followers are mainly Republican as crazy as it sounds?

    Has the Grateful Dead Movie been banned?

    For I don't no how long, I've always looked forward to seeing the Dead Movie on VH1 or other channels through Comcast/Xfinity. It's almost a year since it appeared in my weekly favorite searches. Does anyone know anything about this?

    It's a shame to see history being changed because of a few songs that may have a gun fight, dating 14 year olds, and other lyrics that may be offensive to some.

Yeah I just read about it at Cinematical http://tinyurl.com/ytkdn4 via Relix .Our story is too convoluted and varied by perspective to be misinterpreted into a movie. Like "I Robot" or "Dune", (which both sucked), the writers work gets mashed up in production and here we are as much the Writers as Parish and Layden. I wish them the best of luck but share your nervousness leadbelly27. (This deserves a topic post of it's own so it doesn't stay buried) "if you get confused..."

I just came across this short story taken from an anthology of Rock and Roll stories. It's written by this guy who has written for Rolling Stone and The Village Voice. It tells the story of an 18 yr old in 2069 traveling back in time to 1969 to see the Dead at the Fillmore. Kind of corny, but fun.

Joel Selvin of the San Francisco Chronicle pays Owsley a visit and gets a pretty good interview! Also, great pics of Owsley, Kesey and the boys, not to mention the story of Alice D. Millionaire. A must-read!

If you should happen to tune into 'Lifetime' Channels' new hit show, Army Wives,look around in the 'Hump Bar'. It is where they all gather,drink and talk, one of the characters,Roxy, works there. Look closely at the bar and sometimes you'll get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right. We are everywhere!!!!!!

In People magazine, August 27, page 111. "At Fred Savage's house, 3 p.m. means nap time - but not for Daddy. Nearly 20 years ago, he starred as Kevin Arnold, the 12-year -old hero of TV's The Wonder Years, a tender coming of age drama set in the 60's. Now the 31-year-old actor is all grown up and crooning the Grateful Dead song "Ripple" to his 1-year-old son Oliver to get him to sleep. It's a tradtition that began an hour before the baby's birth on August 5, 2006. "Whenever I sing it he drifts right off," says Savage." I enjoyed this show because he portrayed someone the same age I was in that period. A fictional tv contemporary. But in real life a Deadhead?.... Do I contradict myself?

In the pages of the latest (Nov.) Guitar Player which I just got in today's mail. Every month the best albums/CDs of a guitar master are featured in a section called Oeuvre Easy.In this issue it is "Jerry Garcia Live", written and compiled by Henry Kaiser. There is a great 2/3 page photo of Jerry walking down Haight Street in 1968, guitar in hand and big smile. Henry Kaiser's focus in the piece are the live not studio recordings. There has been more mention this year of Jerry and the Dead in the pages of GP than there has been for years. Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.) Walt Whitman-Song of Myself

thanks for the pointer. Henry always has something interesting to say, in my experience. One of my favorite Jerry photos of all time is the one Jon Sievert took for the GP cover in 1978. By the time I met Jon many years later, apparently the negatives from the photo shoot (which GP owned) had vanished, or I would have bought a print in a heartbeat. My copy of the magazine is a bit faded and battered, but I'll see if I can scan it in. Great close-up of Wolf. Beautiful wood grain on that guitar.

I read a very touching and informative article in the Sun yesterday, regarding our relationship with the Grateful Dead (and resulting music/groups) and our (sometimes bewildered) family members. I hope this message can help put our quest in perspective to those family members and friends that cannot understand. Check the article out at:baltimoresun.com/branthaver The Dude Abides!

While I was reading this article, I was listening to my newly acquired Phil & Friends, Atlanta 2006 concert. At the exact point of the article that quoted the lines from "Franklin's Tower", I listened to Phil & Friends play and sing those words. It was (to say the least) bone chilling. I had never heard that part of the concert and it was the very first time I played the CD for myself. Thanks again, everyone! The Dude Abides!

Yes, I remember that windsurfing incident of which you speak, "badger" (if that's your real name). You escaped that day (Alex Allen), but wait until next time for which I have an even better idea. I'm going to place him in an easily escapable situation involving an overly elaborate and exotic death. Oh and btw, do you still have Vanessa Kensington's number? I seem to have misplaced my little (evil) black book. "I have but one request and that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads!"

Was reading a book yesterday called the Devils Teeth, by Susan Casey, about her time spent on the Farallon Islands, 30 miles west of San Francisco, with people reasearching the Great White sharks that congregate there every fall. One of them told her about the time that a big powerboat with Jerry's friends and relatives came out to the Farallones in big swells to spread Jerry's ashes. He had been told they were coming and him and another watched from the island as it happened. The next day the guy spotted a new Great White and they named it Jerry Garcia, but after a couple years it was eaten by Orcas. The story is on p.184. Ya learn something new every day!

I'm reading the new book by Jesse Ventura called "Don't Start The Revolution Without Me". Talking about the two-party system Jesse says: " I like to quote the late great Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, who said, " If your made to pick the lesser of two evils, it means you're still pickin' evil." I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in politics.

From a book I'm reading called "The Far Corner"-Northwestern views on land, life,and literature. By John Daniel, 2009, Talking about John Muir he writes: As followers of the Grateful Dead like to remind us, quoting J.R,R, Tolkien, "Not all who wander are lost." Smile

and what book on north-west literature would be complete without a chapter on Mr. Ken Kesey? Seems the author met him in 1979 and became a friend of the family. Glad I'm here too! Hope

"Touch of Grey" by Clairol does sound like a blatant rip-off to me too......I thought "WTF?!" as soon as I saw the commercial.It's funny and ironic though....I can't picture any Deadheads rushing to the shelves for a product like that. Hardly Clairol's "core demographic"...we don't care about a Touch of Grey...It kinda suits us....anyway. "In a bed, in a bed, by the waterside I will lay my head. Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul."

"touch of grey" is a very old pre-dead statement about hair that is just slightly grey! The Dead did get inspiration from real life sometimes, you know :P********************************** Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.

Clairol was pushing Touch of Gray when I was a kid. And that was quite a while ago.
