continuing the free-form from where we left it...
there was someone here who had a tat studio, maybe in one of the Carolinas?? I forget where, but I saw some samples of their work, pretty damn fine stuff.
getting about that time of year to head out on the road again for a few months... so for now, I'll leave you with this: CC's Gone CC's been drinking, out on a binge No reason why, but just on a whim Now he is shitfaced, on a plane Flying away, he's just insane And now CC's gone Now CC's gone, Lord he's gone CC's gone With an elbow bending, it's a binge in fact CC's gone, gone, but someday he'll be back CC's gone A member of the club 'Mile High' His old lady letting out a great big 'sigh' Playing 9 ball, he can't lose Nothing left to do but booze, booze, booze... And now CC's gone Now CC's gone, Lord he's gone CC's gone Going where the there is no rain at all On a dry farm until fall Dug one well, made a ditch The muscles in his back are starting to bitch Again, CC's been drinking, out on a binge No reason why, but just on a whim Now he is shitfaced, on a plane Flying away, he's just in-sane And now CC's gone Now CC's gone, Lord he's gone CC's gone Ooh, one day CC's gonna be back Ooh, one day CC's gonna be back Ooh, one day CC's gonna be back
and love and peace... ( -:
I've thought about this situation on and off today with numerous different feelings / reactions and I'm going with my old standby: "You can only be a victim if you admit defeat" - Thats a line from a Descendents tune. The title of that song could be "Coolidge" but I'm not certain. Either way, the point remains that you and you alone are in control of how other's actions react with you. Its not the same thing as being "thick skinned". Its actually more like empathy. You need to step inside of his shoes for a minute and you'll probably find that you pity him much like Frodo and Bilbo pitied Smeagol. Face it, he made a deliberate attempt to mess with you and, to be perfectly honest, if I was looking at houses and I stumbled into a GD shrine complete with GD being played and posters, etc. I'd mess with the heads, too. Basically, because I'd have the understanding that deadheads are typically kind of out there and open to all kinds of kooky possibilities. However, I definitely wouldn't have made light of the passing of Jerry Garcia (rest his jammin' soul) out of respect for the heads in question. Yep, he did that to be a jerk and he succeeded, but we should all be laughing at his lack of understanding of the music. Which, while I'm philosophizing and quite loquacious, I'll add that deadheads are a potential turn-off for me sometimes. I just wanna hear the notes played. The kind of maniacally obsessive religiosity that some heads exude is simply too much for me at times. (some of you reading this may be in this category, but, for real, I mean no offense!) But hey, thats me. In fact, watching some of the footage of their shows lessens the musical effect for me, sometimes, but when I just put my ears on, well, shoot, I could listen for ages on end. I should shut up...now. | Wait until the veil is shredded, then reveal it |

Does anybody know what this says, besides what I can piece together (speaking NO Polish) that a 17 year old built their computer like this, and it WORKS!********************************** Don't part with your illusions.

thanks. that tattoo on that site is BAD. almost as bad as the one my dad got during his mid life crisis. the artist i was going to go to is on par with chris garver and had been featured in international tat magazines. turns out the age limit isnt 16 in ireland, and my dad wont give permission. I was thinking of getting a syf, as my second. my first i want to get as my 18th birthday gift at the famous miami ink.Peace, The Kid
Just wanted to wish all of you 'lil Canadian Deadheads out there a merry, bright and peaceful Canada Day!! Be safe! Hugs from BC, ~littlebri
yeah..miami ink are great,but the best on any good tatoo is that it comes out of your mind and phantasies and whatever,and than the guy making your tatoo becomes an artist..because he is able to get together your imagination and make it real with his handcraft.CC the one whos gone was pretty right,dont let yourself cover with black cats!:-)(-:

What a joke......We were painting my daughters room, and I stepped off my step ladder tripped on whose knows what :/ and put my bare foot right in the pan of paint hehe I'm like a one man three Stooges show, oh then of coarse I step onto the new carpet....oopsie! Wise guy eh?? What a start to the day :)
I hope you remembered to yell "Kaihili" coming off the ladder, especially with the paint foottprints... Help! Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
You will have those memories forever gratefulmom, as will I when I finally stop laughing! With you ,not at you! Keep on truckin!(come to think of it your foot was probably a perfect match with the dancing skeletons....very interesting.) peace and love and hope you had a wonderful weekend!pk
Hope you got through this memory-intensive experience without actual injury!
It was just so funny.....my daughter Kelly is still cracking up..and we finally got the painting finished too :)

Cheryl Crow video called "Out Of Our Heads" a pretty cool song and they show Jerry in it giving a peace sign :) right after these lyrics...Every man is his own prophet Oh every prophet just a man I say all the women stand up, say yes to themselves Teach your children best you can Let every man bow to the best in himself We're not killing any more We're the wisest ones, everybody listen 'Cause you can't fight this feeling any more, oh anymore If we could only get out of our heads, out of our heads And into our hearts Children of Abraham lay down your fears, swallow your Tears and look to your heart
Very nice! ............. miss him:(
thanks for the heads up!
I just received the news the Philly Spectrum will be demolished early next year and be replaced with a mall and restaurants. "And the times they are a-changin". It was my home venue through high school in the 80's. A lot of good memories will go down with that building. The most memorable was in 1986. I was normally a hallway dancer, but this show I dug my way to about the 4th row in between Phil and Bob and and saw first hand Jerry lose touch with himself and his guitar totally took over his body. It was a Morning Dew out of space and Jerry did not look like the pillar of health coming out after drums. He was sweaty and shaking, but kicked into the most soulful rendition of Dew that I ever witnessed firsthand. (I believe it was my 1st Dew too). His guitar played him....I was convinced. I had tears in my eyes for the first time at a show. I was so blown away. Dew ended and the Band went off the stage. I didn't really comprehend the show was over, until the faithful in Philly started booing the Dead post encore. THE BOO'ed the DEAD. I was flabergasted. Never before and never again. Never a dull moment. I will miss the Filthy Spectrum.
they were BOOING? Not just doing that annoying MOOORRRE thing? Man, East Coast fans are hardcore!
this is the first ive heard bout the spectrum it is the home of my first dead show 88 that place does n always hold a dear place in my heart since it was my home venu n also the place were i saw the boys the most it will surly be missed by my self along with countless othersat least we will always have the cherished memories
My daughter Shanna is coming to town from Flordia, I haven't seen her in over 1 year!!Long story but I gave her up for adoption 29 years ago,and we met 13 years ago, we rarely get to see each other cause she's in Fl and I'm in NJ. She is like my twin we look and act so alike!! I will post pictures of us!! She gets here on Monday the 21st! I can't wait to see her again. **Here Comes Sunshine**
Have a grate time with your Daughter & I look forward to seeing your pictures! 2 gratefulmom's? Very cool. PEACE
Am sooo happy for you. Same thing happened to me, but in reverse (I am the daughter that was given up for adoption, and my biological mother found me just 11 years ago), so I find your post very special indeed!!!!!!!!!!!!********************************** Don't part with your illusions.
