Gross.

Way back in the days of Nintendo 64 I had a Star Wars game, not sure which one, and my user name was Tennessee Jedi. I thought I was pretty clever... guess we all are :-D

Quoted from below article:

Incidentally, the name of the Sycamore Slough String Band, David Gans' Grateful Dead cover band, mentioned herein last week, was taken from "Lazy River Road," a song written by Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia in 1993. Gans says he'd planned for the band to be called Tennessee Jedi, but when they recorded rehearsals and put up a YouTube video, a cry arose from the leader of a Pennsylvania band of that name. And so the Sycamore Slough String Band, which plays the Iron Springs Pub and Brewery in Fairfax on April 18, was born.

David has been using the pseud "Tennessee Jedi" on the Well for years. When I first saw someone here with that nick, I thought it might be him. Glad you guys worked things out.
