    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

one basic scam, there are many variations, on the manufacturers of 'real' goods works like this, POLO or somebody contracts a sweat shop in SEA or China to make 1,000,000 shirts. they get paid for that. Polo gets their 1,000,000 shirts. Ralph Lauren or his heirs sit around and count their money. meanwhile, in reality, 2,000,000 shirts are made and the extra million go into the black market. plenty more hustles and scams where that came from. peace.

CB, I can't see your post but I'll check back later (for some reason none of the embeds are displaying at the moment). I'd actually love to shag Elizabeth Hurley rotten! I am absolutely in love with her since "Austin Powers..." and the movie, "Bedazzled". She was absolutely fabulous in those devil costumes! Too bad she turned out to be a Fembot. Bummer, man. I like to see girls of that... caliber!

can mean many things including1: a strong coarse tobacco that has been shredded 2: a matted tangle of hair or fiber; "the dog's woolly shag" 3: a fabric with long coarse nap; "he bought a shag rug" 4: British slang terms for ‘intimate relations’ (a la Austin Powers) 5: a lively dance step consisting of hopping on each foot in turn 6: A bird of the cormorant family 7 to chase after and retrieve (baseballs hit in batting practice) 8 a haircut, short in front and longer in back, with multiple layers cut so as to produce a stylishly unkempt look This provides endless opportunities for fun. Some years ago I was driving to the college where I was a lecturer, the morning after a big storm. On the way I noticed a large black bird sat about 30 yards from the road in a freshly ploughed (plowed?) field. I stopped to have a closer look and saw to my amazement that the bird was a shag (a large bird normally found at sea) that had obviously been blown inland by the storm and had landed, exhausted in the mud. I walked out into the field to rescue it. The shag was too tired to fly, but tried to run away from me. In chasing it around the field I soon became covered in in sticky clay mud. When I finally captured it (taking care to avoid its large sharp beak) I put it into a large cardboard box. I drove on, by now very late for my first class, parked, picked up the box and my bag and ran to the lecture room. The students were all waiting patiently as I rushed in, leaving a trail of muddy footprints, put the box with the bird in it on the desk, and gleefully announced: ‘Sorry I’m late everybody, I had to stop for a shag in a muddy field!’ There was a shocked silence and few nervous laughs and quizzical stares. I savoured the moment for as long as I could before opening the box, to reveal the gratefully rescued seabird! Note: Later I took the shag to a wildlife rescue centre where it was fed lots of fish and soon released back into the wild where it still lives today, telling its disbelieving buddies about the day it went to college.

yeah, I do not think they got the timing 'just exactly perfect' one of those two robot Japanese babes says something to the effect of "please do not say or do anything that may be 'sexual harrassment' " the voices are really annoying, like the "put on" voices that Japanese department store elevator girls are forced to use. or the recorded announcements in department stores... trust me, they do NOT talk like that in real life. hey badger, did you smoke "fags" in the UK??

While shagging some fly balls at my college athletic facility years ago, I witnessed as a shag was struck by a baseball and nearly killed. My teammates and I picked the creature up and carried it to the vehicle of our captain, who was also an instructor at the school. As the bird lay dazed on the shag carpet of the college lecturer's panel van's floor (shaggin' wagon) we attempted to calm our nerves by smoking some freshly rolled shag. Within a few moments, the shag began to reclaim it's faculties and attempted to stand but due to the lingering shock, it began to shag around hysterically, which caught the attention of a stray shaggy dog passing nearby. The dog bolted towards the bird unbeknownst to most of our group with the exception of a rather shy lad named Karl, who sported a '70's style shag haircut. I hadn't noticed the impending tragedy due to my attention being distracted by the attractive beauty of a collegian, named Vanessa Kensington. God she was beautiful! I'm sure she could shag like a minx! As I drifted off in the blissful lust of an afternoon daydream, my reality was shattered by the sound of high pitched human screams, deep bestial groans and the sound of clawing against the enamored sheet metal of the van's floor and walls. Wow, I was shagging Vanessa rotten! Dreams do come true! I've often wondered how that fucking bird got away from that mangy dog. Oh, well. All's well that end's well... All right guard, begin the unnecessarily slow-moving dipping mechanism.

maybe you should move to Carolina, Professor Devotion: SHAGGING'S A CAROLINA DUTY AND PLEASURE Published: September 10, 1989 To the Editor: Roy Attaway writes (''Shagging,'' Op-Ed, Aug. 18): ''Last April, I was in Columbia and was informed by the chamber of commerce - facetiously? - that the shag is now the state dance of South Carolina.'' For the record, the General Assembly of South Carolina designated the shag the official dance of South Carolina by Act 329 of 1984. The 1989 South Carolina legislative manual states: ''The shag, one of the great developments of terpsichorean culture and native to this state, is performed to music known as rhythm and blues.'' We Charlestonians have mixed emotions, as we (with a little help from Myrtle Beach) invented not only the shag but also another dance of some small renown - the Charleston. I read Roy Attaway's article on Sunday morning in Hilton Head, where the preceding night the South Carolina Trial Lawyers Association had its annual convention dance. A large number of trial lawyers and half the state's judiciary spent Saturday evening confirming the wisdom of the General Assembly by doing the shag! ROBERT N. ROSEN Charleston, S.C., Aug. 21, 1989 The writer is the author of ''A Short History of Charleston.' This kind of stuff never fails to have us simple minded Brits rolling around on the floor in hysterics

Is it all go under? Is it all fall down, down, down Is it all go under? Everywhere I go the people all know everybody's doin' that shag Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my underground lair.

When I was in high school we had a new foreign exchange student from Australia, in class one day she asked another student if she could "borrow his rubber". She was asking for what we call an eraser but for us a rubber was a condom. She didn't even realize what she had said, poor girl, the whole class was in stitches. Then when someone told her what a rubber was and to watch the shocked look on her face as it registered, well the whole class was almost on the floor laughing. She was able to let it just fly off of her after her initial shock and made a quick entry into being a part of the school with this introduction that everyone heard about.

Adulterate - Shag... very funny: ) And you called me, "Low Brow"? That's no way to get "a head" in the world. Try not to get "a head" of yourself. Happy Halloween, All Saints Day and All Souls Day (Day of the Dead) to everyone! I hope everyone had a fun and safe night of Trick or Treating. We had a beautiful and nearly half moon illuminating the local festivities which included some very scary ghouls and goblins demanding Tricks or Treats. My wife insisted I provide the later so I dressed up like a slightly deranged suburbanite and shelved my true prankster self for another year. She has promised that when the sacred night falls on a night I'm off from work, I can pursue the event with no restraint. Maybe I'll take off next year and get "a head" start. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my underground lair.

When I was in school, there was an older teacher that would always refer to rain boots as, "rubbers" and, being the sophisticated students to which badger has made reference (at least in my situation), we would howl with laughter. I still chuckle when I think about those times and your story brought back that memory for me. Thanks! Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my underground lair.

Hey now! I came across a sealed vinyl copy of Keith and Donna's album they made in 1975 which I frankly did not know existed. Can anyone shed some light as to the quality of the album as the asking price is pretty high. It looks like it would be a pretty good album, but how come the Dead have not released it on CD? Thanks in advance for the help on this one.. The Estimated Prophet

Buy it, its surprisingly good, with a lot of Garcia in it too. For real completists it includes, according to Blair Jackson, Garcia's longest ever studio slide solo! (on the wonderful 'Every Song I Sing') Used to play it a lot, but my old vinyl copy is scratched to hell now; if you don't like it let me know and I might just buy it off you! Would be nice to see it re-released on CD, maybe bundled with some of the Keith and Donna Band with Garcia live material from '75 . You can download some shows in MP3 on http://larscheid.com/?q=keith_and_donna_band_featuring_jerry_garcia_1975
