    AP Research 2020 survey

    Hey guys, I'm a senior at McLean High School completing a year long research project about if the Grateful Dead's following could be recreated in todays social climate. I'm conducting the bulk of my data through surveys so any responses would be tremendously helpful! Thank you all!!

    Sydney Pollack
    Sydney Pollack passed away on May 26. a hell of a nice guy, really down to earth. I met him once at a party I crashed on the upper east side round about the time just before or just after Tootsie came out. We talked for a long while, mostly about gangster stuff and the yakuza, and when I held up an extra ticket for the next night's show at MSG, and said "dude, you ever been to a Grateful Dead concert?" and this, I will never forget, he looked at me for like a full minute, and he said: "The Grateful Dead? those people never bathe" RIP, Syd, may the 4 winds blow you safely home. peace.

    Awesome weekend
    Had an AMAZING weekend. Went to a battle of the bands in willamantic supporting wildlife conservation and the conservation of the river. four amazing bands (well, at least three, one had a terrrrrible vocalist) great BBQ, dead heads galore. One band was a tribute band though they also wrote their own stuff. Also bought tons of books in providence. check out the band that won the battle, a band called "The Line" also, there was this amazing girl there named Desiree who is on youtube and the like. check her out as she is very young but an amazing player.Peace, The Kid

    badger, have fun with that Täze Elipbiýi over there in Whereverthefuckitisstan! safe travels. Turkmen Proverbs Words of Wisdom for Life by Gazanfar Pashayev http://azer.com/aiweb/categories/magazine/ai111_folder/111_articles/111… 3 from that page: Blood is dripping from his pen. (His actions hurt others.) Don't swear in the name of my grandfather who was a slave, And I won't swear in the name of your grandfather who was a wealthy landowner. (A person's ancestry is sacred, no matter what reputation they had.) A donkey with a load is still a donkey. (The true character of human beings who are evil is still evident even if presented as respectable. The proverb is used in a negative way about people of bad character.)

    more on old school
    more on old school I think the another big thing about being old school, or the old school heads on tours and the touch heads, was the general policy of 'self-policing' the community. as an example, nobody gave a shit if people were dringking themselves silly in the parking lots, BUT once someone threw a bottle and broke it, the older heads would chide the dude who did that. then, the 'old school' heads would go clean up the mess. being old school has nothing to do with age, mind you. sure, I was fucking around on the board one day and posting lots of crap, I did kind of fuck up because I did think I was in the chat room thread and not the news thread; bt that is not the point, once someone, in this case, marye said, dude, chill out with this, I stopped. I apologised, and that was that. end of story. end of issue. Door # 3??? clearly that would be marye up-loading a digi copy of her old cassette tapes of her interview with jerry which I really hope to 'hear' someday. peace

nope, nice guesses, but neither Peggy O or CC Rider and the show was from 1982... pretty close with the year, though!! peace "The highway is for gamblers, you'd better use your sense. Take what you have gathered from coincidence"

Upon further review I've concluded that the sound bit is "Touch." If it isn't "Touch" then it's "Bertha."

Oh, yeah, about the "Playin'" Controversy: I couldn't find a real good comparison with Keith on keys as it seemed he used the Wah-Wah until Keith left and ditched it around the time that Brent came around. I definitely like both styles, but the Stratocaster + Wah-Wah is a tone that just really did something for me. Now, its not like I'd ever complain about hearing it either way, but yes, Joe, you did point out many other factors that contributed to the "not quite the samedness" of the two versions, but I did the same thing you did: I listened to so many versions of Playin' that just floored me that I forgot what I was doing! Bozo Bus: I was in a band called "San Pedro Circus" back in 2001 when I played there. We were on tour and I had a bunch of my Denver buddies show up so it was kind of extra special for me. That and I actually played well that night which I had been struggling with at the time. I think there was an opening band, but green cookies and two hours worth of basketball in the hot sun before the gig make most of it very blurry. Somebody call this tune quick before Joe starts thinking he is a genius or something. (nyuk nyuk nyuk!) )(I'm just a, well...porpoise.)(

not touch, not Bertha... nice guesses. Sken, I used to be a genius, then I realized it is more fun to be a 'fool' on the ship of fools... You thought you was the cool fool, and never would do no wrong... Heaven help the fool; guess I showed the sons of bitches Heaven help the fool, professional gimme-fiver... The wisdom of hypocrisy, the common sense of fools... Though I could not caution all, I still might warn a few Don't lend your hand to raise no flag atop no ship of fools... peace. by the by, I've been waiting for Gypsy Soul to try this round... she was the one who coaxed me into hosting this gameshow in the first place. ain't it always the way? just when you think you are developing a fan base, they skip out on you... the show must go on.

http://img142.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=th_30735_oscar_122_544lo.jpg but with imagevenue.com, use the url that says 'Hotlink Image on a Website or Auction' for some reason on this board, it does not take the other ones... and it will end up looking like this shit at the top of this post... not the cool pic of Oscar. peace.

not Cold rain and snow... please try again. I'm gonna give this round another 24 or 48 hours before I ditch it and start round two.

nice try, but nope. not Sugar Mag. OK, one hint... this particular song is the first song of a second set played in 1982. if no one guesses this one in the next 48 hours, I'll tell the answer and move on to round two. please don't touch that dial.

that the light strumming isn't the part to be keying in on. I may be wrong. Right before the clip ends it sounds like the onset of Victim.
