    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

Me And Tiger Lilly Busted out of Barcelona riding on a train Feeling nearly faded as her dress Tiger Lilly ate some paella just before the rain Farted all the way to Fi-guer-es Well I took my old cassette from my dirty sack Playin' slow while Lilly sang the blues Stinky farts keeping time Holding Lilly's spirit in mine We finallly sang near every song that we knew The Board's just another place to think about The Scene The Board can cheer you up -- if you know what I mean The internet is easy Lord, when there ain't no tour The Board is good enough for me Good enough for me and Tiger Lilly With the kind, grateful folks; rapin' here is fun Lilly shared the secrets of my soul Standing right beside me Lord in everything I done Lilly's spirit kept me from the cold Nowhere never on this Board, I'll let her slip her away Looking for memories I hope we'll find And I'll trade all my straight friends for a single head To be sharing Lilly's spirit, oh so KIND The Board's just another place to think about The Scene The Board can cheer you up -- if you know what I mean The Internet is easy Lord, when there ain't no tour The Board is good enough for me Good enough for me and Tiger Lilly

Oh Joe-have not been so touched in a LONG time! Is one of my all-time fave songs (Janice version) and have been wallowing in her brilliant Pearl album lately, as a matter of fact. She can express bewildered pain, while wanting to be happy and fine, like nobody else out there, I think. You rock Joe, as does this forum, as do all our friends here!!!!! Kind and clever and funny and compassionate-is special. Know this even more now. Had an electronic "missadventure" with a MSN messenger address that I pasted wrong, thought was my sister; which turned out to be some pervert in Perth. Was writing to my "sister" last Sunday, wondering why she was so monosyllabic, when out of nowhere were foul and disgusting images on my screen. I said "Sabrina, what the hell are you doing?" to which came back "I am not Sabrina, I am Steve in Perth, do you know where that is?" I freaked out and blocked him. Point of the anecdote, there are some scary freaks out there that we can stumble across, but here is safe. Joe-as an expression of my appreciation, if you send me an e mail address in a p.m., I will send you an attachment that is a parody of a Zappa song that I wrote a couple of years ago. Is about Bush, and am rather proud of it, if I do say so myself. :-) But enough about that, before I start to sound too much like ....... Thanks Joe! ********************************** Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live. Samuel Clemens

so glad that eoJJoe was able to tempt you out of your sad place with his flatulent ode! I'm off to Turkmnistan tomorrow early for 2 weeks work on an environmental project...no idea what to expect..its a very mysterious place spanning the northern borders of Afghanistan and Iran (!) , but they have just started allowing the internet there so will try to send a bulletin. Of course I will be taking plenty of GOGD on the iPod (Just got a tasty copy of 5/16/72 Luxembourg).

Thanks, Izzie and Marye for all of your amazing work in this forum! I'm really not sure where to post this question, so here goes: Izzie, or anybody, do you know of any plans in the Dead organization to change the way Grateful Dead apparel and other products are made? Everything I look at seems to be made in China. I wanted to buy a Grateful Dead shirt the other day, but could not justify it… does anyone else find it odd that official Grateful Dead products seem to be made with no concern for social impact? I can invest in socially responsible mutual funds, but I can’t buy a Fair-Trade, sustainably produced T-Shirt from my favorite band? I'd love to hear what others think... Chris

200g moong dal or red lentils1/4 teaspoon tumeric salt 900ml water 1 tsp cumin seeds 2-inch chunk of ginger, grated 1-2 green chillies, chopped (seeded if you prefer) 1-2 BIG handfuls chopped coriander/cilantro 3 tablespoons ghee/oil ****************** *Boil lentils with tumeric and salt. I find that for an authentic Indian flavour, some salt is essential, although I rarely use the huge amounts I find in recipe books. 1 tsp is about right for this. No salt is OK and quite edible but kind of bland. *Briskly whisk lentils when cooked so it all becomes a porridge. Alternatively, you could try whiskly brisking them. *Heat oil over mdeium high flame/heat. *When oil is sufficiently hot, fry cumin seeds for about 10 seconds. Then throw in the ginger and chillies; fry for another 30 seconds. *Enjoy the smells! *Fold the whole lot into the lentils and gently mix. *Throw in the coriander. *Serve *Eat ******** I often add chopped spuds or eggplant to make a heftier meal. I love eating out in Indian joints, but find the dal is ridiculously over-priced and too often too greasy and salty. Much more betterer to make it at home.

maybe people know gypsysoul makes tie dyes, hence the reference to I've got to dye. but perhaps few people know one of her fav movies is Goodfellas, and she especially loves the line Jimmy Conway (Bobby DeNiro) said, 'I got no lyme!' maye and izzie, please substitute your names in the last 2 lines for your private versions and for the folks who were not mentioned, sorry, but do you realize how hard it is to rhyme something with 'cosmic badger' or 'hal R' ??
