:cool:



Once the NYE shows moved to the Oakland Coliseum there used to be this great spot in the main concourse hallway that was way wide they set up speaker columns, and it was this sh*t. I have to admit there were quite a few shows there that I never laid eyes on the band sometime personal space was more important than the floor :) Once things calmed down (in my head) I would sneak a peek into the show to say I saw the band lol

kind of ironic that I am typing this sitting at home with my kids not going to any show...its been a long strange trip indeed

These are all awesome.

..just the sound of the crowd at the beginning of the tape gives you goosebumps.

...you have a son named Cassidy Jazz

..friends used to call your band the Wishful Dead

...you're at your first graders spring choral concert and you have to restrain yourself from yelling out "Alligator!" between songs.
Aint no time to hate....

You are doing 80 on the highway and you spot the tiniest stealie on a car that's doing 80 and its ten car lengths way.

Or

You have the incognito stealie on your minivan!

1.) You show up at a party, the host says, "Hey! Spring 1990!" and you immediately know exactly what he/she is talking about.

2.) You've completely mastered "Me and Bobbie McGee," then at some point said, "What? Who the hell is Kris Kristofferson?"

3.) You consider Dead jams a unit of measurement.
Example:
-"How far do you live from your work?"
-"One Scarlet Begonias and about two verses of Bird Song."
(If they're 'Heads, they ask what versions; if the'yre civilians they're struck speechless.)

4.) You completely destroyed a perfectly good filing cabinet just because you had outstashed the key but you were absolutely certain your third-printing copy of Playin' in the Band was in there. . . And then it wasn't.

5.) Your guests keep trying to figure out if you have a bedroom or if you sleep in a Grateful Dead Merchandising, Inc. warehouse.

6.) You shouted "'It's IN the Dark,' you moron!" at Letterman.

7.) Every question you ask has Whoa, oh, what I want to know. . . tacked onto the beginning.

8.) You won your last school spelling bee by correctly spelling Aoxomoxoa; the one before that by spelling Skjellyfetti.

9.) The red needle on your compass points West during the month of August.

You get about 7 GD calendars during the holidays, because all of your friends and family think they are the only ones to say, "hey, so-and-so is a deadhead, he'll love this nifty calendar."

- or -

you're bothered when other bands don't mess up lyrics.

- or -

you understand that it is perfectly acceptable for a grown man to own bean bears, as long as their names include: Dark Star, Candyman, Father Time, ect.


Hey, I feel ya on all of these. . . especially the bears

Ah yes, so true! And if I had been born a few decades earlier, I'm sure all that tour stuff would apply too!

Oh, maybe that's a slightly different topic.....


Well, whatever thread that's on, you're still totally right! My hands have always been one of my three prized possessions (the other two being my Strat and by first GD bear. That bear's a big Stella Blue that I got at age 3 and always taken great care of.).

Sorry I just went off on a tangent. :oops:
