thanks deadicated!! in a private message deadicated suggested "The Scratch" I dig that name! thankx! I got plenty of calls coming up to see if this will really happen and where. might be La La Land or Las Vegas which will be a minefield of licenses and red tape but would be cool. might just be a parlour inside a casino, working that angle, too; then the gambling licenses will be there already. got some contacts out that way, and a few people who owe me favors. depends on if/how I'll put it together, and how much cash the people actually throw my way. I got a 'mass market' idear in mind, but that would definately get me some boos and hisses from this crowd. though the franchise rights alone would make a fortune if it got off the ground. '( -; $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ （ either LA or Vegas will be mass market type joints no matter what, this is, after all a 'business' I'd rather make it a snmokey dark place for real players, but those join\ts dont make too much money, but I'm getting too old to keep being a road player. don't know if I'm ready to 'settle down' just yet, and if I can get it up and running, might not really want to 'work' there... oh the trials and tribulations.
The Rack Shack? Or maybe, if you also wanted to also do food and hire statuesque waitresses you could call it The Barbie Cue Pit. Or maybe just stick with Joe's. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
The Rack Shack? Or maybe, if you also wanted to also do food and hire statuesque waitresses you could call it The Barbie Cue Pit. thanks, man, these are also really good! in Vegas, the Rack Shack would go over well, for those that remember the Rat Pack... I also really dig the Barbie Cue Pit, that is grate. thanks for the suggestions. you know, I was actually looking to put in a secret dead 'homage' or a secret dead reference in the name, which is why I asked here. but, all ideas are most gratefully appreciated and I thank you. peace.
I should probably know this, But what is all this about slipknot? and who is it i should PM about the book?Great song CC. Im goin to Ireland this summer. any suggestions on stuff to do while Im there? we will be in south eastern ireland, near Cork. Peace, The Kid
"Slipknot" is a mystery featuring County Sheriff Gavin Pruitt, Deadhead. Set the year before Jerry Garcia's death, "Slipknot" takes place in picturesque rural Washington, and revolves around the murder of a politically prominent environmentalist - who was going to decide whether a local forest is logged or not. The future of the local logging industry is dependent upon the decision - but so are the lives of the wildlife within the forest. Gavin must figure out who the killer is, all the while quoting classic Grateful Dead songs, taking up jamming sessions, and dealing with his daughter's new "hippie" boyfriend.

When naming anything one must always kep this option open: Eat Cod! And if you don't like it, well then, eat cod! Har! Thats some funny stuff! And what the hell? I missed a fishnet/garter belt conversation somewhere? Well, fiddlesmurfs! | I'm just a, well...porpoise. |
well, I haven't been to that part of the world for decades so I'm sure it's changed a bit, but do the Waterford factory tour for molten glass etc. at its finest. I was sad to discover that circa 1978 at least the prices in their gift shop were no bargain, but these days who knows. As I recall Cork itself has some very nice architecture and a pretty good culture scene. And of course take the train to Dublin, which is a stunningly good music town unless something has changed radically.

Rocco Mediate competing in the US Open Golf Championship on Sunday (and giving Tiger Woods a serious run for his money to boot) wearing a peace symbol belt buckle? Makes you wonder...

but i did notice that one could interpret the Black Throated WInd lyrics to be: "I'm hereby, the road..." as opposed to "I'm here by the road..." | Wait until the veil is shredded, then reveal it |
more good idears there, thanks. for a dyslexic like me, I got no problem with reading backwards. I am just feeling a little backwards these daze... still in conversation with the backers. didn't really like hearing the 70 - 30 split (their way) but might go with it anyways... ok, how about 'Nice Rack' about 10 pool tables. food available, of course booze, and legal betting! lots of large breasted model types (a strict no silicone policy) in skimpy outfits to be the waitresses / rack girls... slit skirts, garter belts... fishnets. cage dancers like the old go go days. you get the picture. figure if I can get Paul Newman or Tommy Cruise to make another Hustler movie, to add to the general 'marketing' will make it a lock. ok, please proceed with the boos and hisses and damn joe, what a sexist pig you are! Viva Las Vegas!! (about to lose his rep as an all around ok guy-- eoJ CC) peace.
No damning words from me, big guy! After all: Libido happens! And, well, you weren't that offensive, especially considering that Vegas is the target location. In other news, I've been listening to 12/02/1973 - damn! Wharf Rat>Half Step>Playin' -intense! | Wait until the veil is shredded, then reveal it |
Got a new laptop today!! gotta go out and buylots more dead stickers to plaster it with like i had on my old one. thanks for the suggestion about dublin, i never knew it was a big music city.Mr. Pid, i love it, I was sitting there for about ten minutes, and staring at the screen thinking "what language is that?" I asked my brother to take a look and make a guess. he takes one look and says, "duuuuuuude, its backwards." Duuuuuude did i feel like a moron. Peace, The Kid

can anybody spell federal indictment for income tax evasion backwards?? might as well call the place 'Skim City' or 'The Laundry' sheesh. some folks think I was born yesterday. no fall guy, I. not a patsy either. the deal is dead in the water. could have worked, but the risks of doing serious federal time were too great given the 'set up' so to speak. (never told them my cool idea for the places name, neither -- so there!)
That's a shame to hear. I'd envisioned a huge deadnet Grand Opening! Damn You know I have an opinion about your so called "sexist remarks" & since your on the edge of your seat to hear it: What chick wouldn't dig a nice rack?? You never know, sounds like a groovy idea & it could come to pass yet. Anyway, least you know what's up & didn't get suckered.(as I'm seeing Ol Elmer Fudd's head turning into a Sucker) PEACE
thanks iknowurider... the thing is, getting in deep with certain organized crime types is a recipe for personal disaster. it is one thing to have bets laid, and to have people stake you for a few pool games, but another to sign papers and be the guy who would take the fall if shit turned sour... guess who would have done the time for some other fucker's crime?? the deadnet grand opening may very well have been at Nellis rather than in Vegas. what chick wouldn't dig a nice rack?? those who think that more than a mouthful is a waste. ( -; peace.
Har har! Outside of the above observations, I'd like to add one little thing: Parsnips! Does anyone eat parsnips anymore? or Turnips? Whats up with food that falls out of favor? | Wait until the veil is shredded, then reveal it |
I use 'em in soup all the time. White turnips, that is. I like rutabagas shredded and steamed, served with butter, salt and a splash of vinegar. I'm no slave to convention! Goes great with cod, BTW... Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
I'll have to try that when it is "soup season" again, maybe I'll make some form of cod chowda with white turnips. Thanks for the t(urn)ip! Eat cod! (that one really does crack me up!) | Wait until the rutabaga is shredded, then steam it |
As promised to folks in the chat room Years ago (1981 or 82) I worked from time to time as stage crew at the old Hammersmith Odeon theatre in London and was called up one day to unload trucks for a gig by Rick Wakeman, rather a fading star at that time, what with punk and new wave taking over. Rick’s stage set up, as well as the usual banks of keyboards, included a thick pile white carpet covering the entire vast stage. It was a nightmare to unload and lay all this in time for the show, but when the time came for Rick to appear on stage no-one could find him. The tour manager was running around shouting and as half an hour passed the crowd was becoming restless. Finally after about 40 minutes Rick was located in the pub across Hammersmith Broadway in a very well lubricated state and was dragged by his tour manager back to the Odeon to perform. As he lurched into the wings the superstar declared that he was not prepared to go on stage because his white carpet was dirty. One of the theatre staff was sent on a desperate search and returned with an old fashioned upright vacuum cleaner..a real museum piece. This was shoved into my hands by the tour manager and I was ordered to vacuum the carpet. Meanwhile things were getting quite ugly out front, and as I hesitated the tour manager said “there’s an extra tenner in it for you”. I was really broke at the time so off I went, pushing the ancient machine back and forth across acres of white carpet while the angry crowd stared, laughed, shouted, booed and subjected me to a torrent of abuse. Meanwhile in the wings the tour manager was frantically giving me hand signals, pointing out bits I had missed, until at last Mr Wakeman finally declared himself satisfied and I was able to retreat, my humiliation completed by a sarcastic round of applause. I collected my ten pounds and went straight over to the pub Rick had just left to drown my sorrows. This incident deeply scarred me and gave me a lifelong psychological aversion to vacuuming, but Mrs Badger will not accept that as an excuse!!!!
grate story there, CB. Thanks. an extra tenner for your troubles, mate. damn you go cheap! ( -; by 81 Wakeman, was indeed a man who needed a 'wake' for his career. should have rolled him up in that carpet. peace.

I love his 7 words act. ive considered playing it during my radio show, but put it out of mind. Life on the road would be tough I imagine. He died of heart failure. I imagine his heart wasnt helped by lots of eating fast food on the road or late nights in comedy clubs.on a better note, ive found a great new hangout. lots of deadhead stuff and GD stuff. LOTS of dead head Brown U college students. great place called the kind connection oon thayer street in providence. managed to restock my incense after my dad confiscated my old stuff. also, does anyone know if regular cell phones work in europe? Peace, The Kid p.s. if ur intested in my radio show, ive got a session up on our website, wbvc.pomfretschool.org dont put www before it or it wont work. click on the ADD hour link.
i have what i would call a regular cellphone and i works here and in UK Bob - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Spanish Jam
In answer to your question about cell phones in Europe. It depends on whether you have a dual band or tri band phone. A tri band will work here, but a U.S. dual band will probably not. Your network, most likely will not work though. IF your phone works, could always buy a pre-paid sim card in Ireland. If have other questions on this, just ask-know quite some about traveling w/cell phones! :-)********************************** Don't part with your illusions.

much appreciated.Peace, The Kid
Funny story. Sounds like Wakeman was a little overblown with self importance, something I always felt when I heard his music. I lean more towards McCoy Tyner when it comes to amazing keyboards. He doesn't need all that stuff to cart around. Next time you vacuum let us know and we can pour on the abuse to make you feel at home if you wish.

I was sitting around in deep contemplation, in the haze of cheap red wine... going back to the hippies, yippies, and up to the generation X type drop-outs, burn-outs and so on and so forth. kids with dreads hanging and posing... that type. it always seemed to me, that a lot (not all) a lot of those folks were running 'from' something. and it always was that deadheads were always running 'to' something. (especially the music, the shows, the life) just a thought for the day. ( -; peace.

"Not me... I'm in my prime!"
we are selling our house and this couple comes in to check it out...they go in my room and come out smiling, hmmmm, then they go out back and come in laughing,hmmmm, then the guy says so Your a deadhead huh? I said yes why...he said well the first clue was your jerry stuff and bears in your room, then when we went outside you had the grateful dead jammin on your stereo in your dead shrine bar..... Duh dead give away huh, then he says that he is why Jerry is gone! I SAID WHAT????? He says oh yea I saw this shirt one time that had a dancin bear in a hangman's noose with the saying enough is enough on it, he said he thought it was a cool shirt so he bought it and wore it and the next day was 8/9/95 the day Jerry left us, he said he felt like it was his fought and I said I think your right you should of never of bought or wore that shirt, I said I hope you burnt it. I wonder why he felt he had to tell me that..it made me sad :( and I'm NOT selling them my house!!!!!!!!!
That would have made me mad too. Why would you tell someone something like that? "You know the one thing we need is a left handed monkey wrench....."
there are a lot of fucking assholes in this world. worse yet, plenty of asshole who like to advertise the fact by insulting people and making fun of people they love. good for you, mom. don't sell them your house. peace.
Mean people are just not nice. But......... they always remind me, there are places where most of the people you are surrounded by are just giving off the most wonderfully good vibes that you start to realize that our planet could really be like this someday.The Grateful Dead shows were always one of those places. Just like one big home. peace & love,pk
d-ck! so anyway, how much u askin 4 just the barroom, ducky? (furnished as is of course) :)
this is a bit off topic, but is there anyone with a bit of knowledge about tattoos and legal ages? i looked it up all i could, but all i could find out that the legal age to get one is 16 in ireland. I am getting one while im in dublin (my first) and have heard that you have to be a citizen. anyone know if thats true? I am only sixteen and have wanted the same design for three years, so my only choice is to get one in ireland.Peace, The Kid
kid, whatever tat you decide to get BE SURE you want it forever. ok, you had an idea for 3 years... but really, think long and hard on it. especially if it is your first. and, also, check out the artist very carefully! try to see samples in person of his/her work, not just photos. clean / sterile needles, like in a package, not just washed off, will be used. I dopn't know about the local laws over there. if you look over 16, they may not even ask for id or proof of citizenship. or if you are willing to lay more bread on the artist, that might bend some rules. what you do not want, is some piece of shit crappy looking tat. take your time there, kid. you got a lifetime to wear it. just my 2 shillings. peace.
