In My Life--Johnny Cash
Quiet Nights--Shirley Horn

Hey cool, speaking of the Dead...if ya haven't checked it out in a while they're up to over 2900 audio pages HERE from this page at

take care of yourselves and have a good year, hope it's an interestin..... wait a minute, wait a minute, hold the phone...I see it in the's becoming clearer, here it is... there is going to be a lot going on this year.

hey hey...

Feel better so that you can have your faculties when we start to ruthlessly tease you for the Grateful Dead thing.

No way I am picking on the Dead. And poo to all those that do. I just happen to have Dead shirt on. Hey they have bad rep. but there one of the most importent bands in American music. Try some Tennesee Jed, maybe Cumberland Blues or the The Other One. This list is the one most like my tastes, cept for the Donnas but I like Hey Betty better.

poor host is on cold med high. This call for special music blend. (Ph30r me, I've been hanging around in a neo-folks mp3 blog and guest posting there. I now know how to twist soul like a twig using accoustic songs. muahahahaa... *cough, cough*)

Shameless plug: if you like, psych-folks, post-rock, experimental accoustic, underground/indie and avant garde ... nag me in this blog. I need music commentary. (Ignore the writing, I can't write jack to save my own skin,...)

What is it about Grateful Dead fans that makes them list song titles or performance dates at the drop of a hat?

My Friday Random 10 is always more embarrassing. I resurrected it today, and, sure enough, it left me looking like a 14-year-old.


Gratefull dead still so over. I am sorry, there is no mrcy .. :p

Stand by Me windows video link here

quoting this page August 13, 1966 - Radio station KLUE organizes a bonfire of Beatles records, it's transmission tower was struck by a bolt of lightning the next morning.

360 of Abby Road

drink now...

Special mention, I've been plugging her everywhere. She is INCREDIBLE. She leads a way out there jazz group on violin. She sounds like django reihard. Check out her freebie. Trust me. It's awesome.

Jenny Scheinman

Am I correct in fearing that this closetag trick still doesn't work?

It worked! I always thought cold medicine was kind of a Flying Saucer Attack buzz.

darned it, all the links are dead. use this to replace jana hunter song. (It patches the texture change)

just so happens there's a few deads on mine today too (big river - steal your face ; mighty quinn - nameless venue live)
the coolest thing about them was that they weren't afraid to get up there, night after night and play. there were many nights they flat out sucked. but that didn't scare them, they had touched the absolute magic enough times to know it was worth the pain of going up there and sucking out loud. one of the best things i ever heard was the tour they did with dylan (another who isn't afraid to suck now and then in a quest for magic). fearless art takes pure ass courage.

It worked! I always thought cold medicine was kind of a Flying Saucer Attack buzz.

This is my first viewing of your blog. I had to comment in defense of the Dead. I am listening to Playing in the Band right now:

"Some folks trust their reason;
Others trust their might.

I dont trust nothing;
But I know it will come out right."

It may not be Rumi, but I like it.

It's OK to like The Dead. Really. They're moving into the 'classical' category now, and the 'deadhead' stereotype is becoming more of an icon than a reality. They belong up there with Joe Strummer and Johnny Cash.

We're good enough, we're smart enough, and
dog-gone it, we like Jerry Garcia!
