    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

So wasn't it in 1966 that Owsley and the Dead lived in L.A. and the boys fine crafted their art and Owsley did the same with his and about all they ate was meat? I think those little LA Bears must be flashbacks of that time transported to Kinki Japan. I mean exactly what does go on in a city named Kinki? And where will the L.A. Bears end up next? Norway, Tibet, Egypt? Them sure are some Prankster bears. Looks like the sky on the pencil box has a Dark Star theme.

Hal, are you sure you want an answer to what goes on in kinki Japan??!! image hosted by ImageVenue.com http://img133.imagevenue.com/loc2/th_47007_fgFERTILITY_123_2lo.jpg http://kinkijapan.com/ well, Kinki is actually a region of Japan, more commonly known as Kansai. but given the choice of saying I was in Kinki Japan vs. saying I was in Kansai; which do you think I have to choose. That, and ever penchant toward accuracy, I can not remember the name of the city in Kinki that I spotted the pencil box-- hence the general referance to Kinki... though not actually in Kinki, some of the unusual events in Japan include these: http://www.yamasa.org/japan/english/destinations/aichi/tagata_jinja.html http://www.answers.com/topic/kanamara-matsuri http://www.flickr.com/photos/stevegoestravelling/sets/72157600551157666… pretty soft to some of the Japanese anime in popular culture.... but pretty 'kinki' nevertheless.

I did know about Kinki at one time. I forgot about Kinki. Happens with age. Kinki is the region of Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe and Nara. I took a Japanese History course years ago. And back in the 80's saw an exhibit at the Art Institute in Chicago of many objects from the big wooden temple with the huge Buddha from Nara. Still have the catalog from the exhibit.

I would expect to find something like that in china. They seem to make everything. I would think those would sell like hotcakes. Heck I'd buy some!!

in my gaming industry at the moment. Alot of the fans of role-playing games are also into anime, which CAN indeed be pretty hefty, but are some interesting stories out there. My new company actuallyl produces an rpg based on anime called Anima, complete with books, anime style illustrations, and miniature figurines for playing. At any gaming convention these days, you see Gothic Lolitas galore (YIKES) and all sorts of western fans of Japanese modern culture. ********************************** Don't part with your illusions.

who knows if the pencil box was made in China or where?? there were no markings on it, no GD trademark or such, no made in Taiwan on the back... sure, there are plenty of Chinese fake product exports all over the world. the GD t-shirts my old lady picked up in Japan were all (well mostly) official, they have both the GD trademarks on the shirt and on the labels, and tags. Those too, (the labels and such) are also easily faked; so one never knows. sell like hotcakes?? perhaps. one must first have pencils to put in the box, but I could think up other things to 'stash' in such a box.

don't know if Japan currently is the knockoff Asian capital, but it was in China that they made a fake Disneyland as well as the usual technology piracy etc etc. http://www.boingboing.net/2007/05/02/fake-disneyland-in-c.html I think Japan is more about taking a good idea and making it better; like that whole mass production automobile thang that Ford started but Honda and Toyota perfected... oh, and I checked a label on one of my old lady's 'official GD product' t shirt. It was made in China -- so go figure??!!

Suggest you give concerned daughter a big hug and send her to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_inventions Many of them seem do to be to do with blowing stuff up but all the same where we be without having stolen/borrowed all that stuff!! What goes round comes around! Also the 'made in China' label may be official stuff; it may just be shorthand for 'Designed in USA/Europe, outsourced to China for their cheap labour so that we can make more money from you suckers' Poor heathaafeathaa daughter....world so complicated!

Don't forget some of the greatest poetry of all time especially from the T'ang and Sung Dynasties, scroll paintings, calligraphy, the birthplace of Taoism and its subsequent meeting with Buddhism to become Zen, Tai Chi, martial arts, a type of medicine that is not as invasive as that of the western model, amazing architecture, fireworks, good food and beautiful women.

Those Chinese mass producers are not so smart as it would seem now, would it? Couldn't perfect the "unbreakable" bowl, could they? Wait just a minute.... (GRTUD shakes fist in air while screaming amidst mounds of shattered "china", while simultaneously, in his "thought cloud", yellow skinned, black haired humans with narrow eye openings and wooden sandals chuckle, while looking down on the scene from the "thought cloud"), "The bowls are NOT unbreakable....

I certainly didn't mean any offense against China or Chinese culture etc. etc. just pointing out a fairly well known fact these days that there are plenty of fake goods out there and so on and so forth. I will try to take a snap of the label from the t-shirt and you can judge if it looks official or not. It seems real, and it is also marked with the import / export comany's name... (this is a t-shirt, well, one of several, my old lady found in Japan) so the label is actually in Japanese. but hey!! isn't Japanese language really based on CHINESE characters??!! giving credit where credit is due. What was it Tony Soprano said about spaghetti?: 'why would a people invent a food you need a fork to eat?' something like that anyways... ( -;

Yes, the Japanese written language is based on the Chinese characters. You knew that. They got art styles, poetry styles, Buddhism and much more from China and incorporated it into their own The brilliance of the Japanese is their ability to adopt elements from other cultures and perfect them. Take a look at the late 19th century - Meiji Restoration how quick they westernized. Then after WW 2 how quickly they recovered (with McArthur plan of course) and became leaders in technology. I thank the Japanese for most of the great stereo components I've had over the years. So the Japanese are big Elvis fans, and there are Japanese Elvis impersonators. Wonder if they get the Dead thing at all. A Japanese Grateful Dead tribute band. Interesting concept. If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

not my picture, but very cool: yeah, of course I knew that, mochiron, sore ga, yoku wakarimashita yo. yoku shitte irunda. (ok, I am showing off) but I am illiterate, sad to say. ) -; anyways, even if you can't read Japanese or understand Chinese characters, you can kind of wade through this, and it is pretty cool. http://www.geocities.jp/takaidoyos/ I've only ever run into one Thai deadhead kid, living on the beach on the Island of Koh Lanta. He was playing an accoustic guitar, and as we were passing by, he noticed my old lady's trademark EXTREMELY large Steal your face t; and he broke into Ripple. cool dude, I didn't speak much Thai in those daze, and he didn't speak much English, but it was a "mak mak sanuk" time! he knew about 30 or 40 dead songs by heart. but his pronunciation of the words was a bit "tonal" and then there was the story of getting 'accosted' by a middle aged Indian gent at the Taj Mahal gardens early on Christmas morning last year... well, that was also an experience to say the least. we are everywhere! peace.

the youtube thing is really easy; if you watch any vid, there will be a thang under the vid screen that says "embed" highlight that, and copy it, then simply paste it into any post. to post any pic, is also pretty easy. first go to: imagevenue.com you do not even have to register, you can upload the pic for free. then simply floow their instructions, and be sure o click on safe for work or not safe for work as the case may be. I reckon not safe for work means PORN, not even something like this: anyway, after the pic uploads into their data base, they give you a few options; for this board, copy the link at the bottom that says : Hotlink a clickable thumbnail on any Website or Auction for some reason the others do not work, andyou only end up with this: [URL=http://img177.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=35050_300px-Barkerandpet_122…] try it, you'll like it. and it is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. something tells me you are a youngin' rather than really being in the stone age... but that is neither here nor there. where? other questions, please do not hesitate to ask, we aim to please. peace.

don't be like me and freak out or claim gov. conspiracies when you put links into posts andthey do not show up right away, it is in a queue that a moderator has to allow in. even knowing that, I can not help keeping on keeping on and trying and trying again. the result being numerous similar or the same posts. since this is the 'open space' mary or izzie, please leave all of the extra posts I made in frustration here for emphasis. thanx. peace.

Well spotted Mr Devotion some crafty counterfeiter has photoshopped in the gun in the foreground in order to make this downbeat movie more attractive to an audience addicted to violence. See, they've even learned fraudulent marketing from us dammit. I lived in Cambodia for 2 years and since it was not possible to buy or rent the real thing there and there are no cinemas showing international films the only choice for movie addicts was this! I even saw a counterfeit copy of the Grateful Dawg film there!!

marye, I'm telling you, that guy is one of the "Way Outs", if you catch my drift. I have nothing to do with him other than trying to talk some sense into him, whenever it's convenient to me and my experiments. He's also been a guest at our "facility", which is registered at all the various state agencies and EPA. I don't have any direct business dealings with him. In fact, he doesn't even act like a scientist. He's more like a game show host. "All energy flows according to the whims of the Great Magnet. What a fool I was to defy him."

way out way out... like from the FlintSTONES! I know it was my fault, and the multiple posts reflect that, evenknowing the system has the spam filter, can not stop me from trying to get what I want on the board right away... actually, I still blame pyramid power! anyway, back on real or counterfit goods: these are the labels from some t-shirts my old lady bought in Japan... SHE is literate; so the top line in the size section says BUST the second line says HEIGHT COTTON 100% and in the bottom right corner it says Made in China. by the way, it says all of this in Japanese, though again, the Japanese are using Chinese pictographs with the exception of the word bust, which is written in Katakana. Is it irony that I can only read the word bust on this label?? why ain't my old lady laughing about that one??!! another t shirt or 2 that she got in KINKI Japan did not have any labels, those were probably fake... but you never know. a lot of the seemingly fake goods that are sold on the streets in Bangkok are in fact real-- they are just stolen or they simply 'fell off the truck' so to speak. disclaimer: cc joe and his old lady abhor fake goods and refuse to purchase them, unless, they are really cool and at a very good price.

Indeed lots of this stuff is smuggled out of the sweatshops where it is legally made and sold in markets. Those T-Shirts look like a very professional job. Who knows? Nicholson is spelt correctly. Now for something really weird How is this for a double bill, twofer? image hosted by ImageVenue.com What mad genius put these together? Are they perhaps suggesting a similarity between Michael Moore and Mr Creosote? I never buy these things by the way, I just ask to look at them, take photos of the covers and then run away....
