Obviously my post was very hateful. I think #6 is a great idea. Where shall we meet?

Well wits I've been called a loser and a scum the last few days so that was a kind of a shock but I'm sure the result of my actions
were quite validated but i always thought that should have been only resereved for parents when i was a younger lad. probably.shouldnt have let things escalate like they did but yes it is the internet so we say alot of things we might regret later on
but from here and on in i will only comnent about midgets and monkeys. there seems to a consensus that these both groups are lovable. dont know if i want the title of major tony, second class private is only a demotion but i think it still gets party favors from the military.

And whats funny is i rarely post here anymore, and go against the normal opinion here on many subjects, like scalping. But if someones opinion is different than yours, you say its a mob mentality. Not true in my case, my opinions are mine. And maybe you dont think you are better than anyone, but your posts imply the exact opposite. Didnt you say you and your crew would sit outside GD shows and laugh at newcomers to the scene? Oh yeah

NYCDave: Yes, that's true I suppose you could say the Dead was our drug. As we all know it just wasn't about watching a musical performance, but so much more. In retrospect, personally, it might have been good to have had one other interest I could have put as much time into as going to shows. Re: Jerry's demise, I think the pressure of him being who he was would be an awful burden to have to carry with him, and I imagine he needed an escape.....enter the bad drugs.

Sugaree1: You bring to mind something I've seen on this forum, and that's the generational thing. I wished everyone here who never got to see a Dead show could have, at the peak of their prowess. Unfortunately that can't happen. It might put into perspective what some of the older folks refer to on occasion. Forgive me if that seems vague,but think you know what I mean. Believe me, I've known first generation Dead heads that told me stories where I wished I had experienced some of what they described, i.e. seeing them at Winterland Halooween '67 and sampling Owsley's latest batch, for example.

STiW: I can relate to a lot of what you say. Like you, it's fair to say, I long for the 'good ol' days'. For some these are the good ol' days, and what they have as a representation of the scene we experienced is still pretty good. It's certainly better than if Bob, Phil, Bill and Mickey had retired and weren't taking other musicians under their tutelage to sort of hand off the baton. I've seen fantastic Furthur shows where I was elated to be hearing the music that's etched on my brain, being performed in ways I'd not heard before. Yet I've also seen some that were so-so. In that sense not a lot has changed.

You have no choice if seconded you have to accept your given rank dammit. Careful about calling them midgets---surely you will be told that that is a politically incorrect term and that they prefer to be called "little people"..again the horror of your bad taste! Further beware the monkey mafia... if they get wind of you making any derogatory comments you will forever be pelted with monkey shit. Oh and welcome to the scum club it aint so bad down here.. I look around and see a lot of beautiful women, bongs, and hear lots of laughter.

Oh shit give me that beer back beyatch! ....seriously though that is taken way out of context. Let me clear that up. Do you know what a trendy person is? Whatever is the hot thing, the flavor of the month, oh how they love it. In 1987-88 the GD were the Hot thing. Plenty of folks who never saw a show before came out, bought the t shirt and loved the dead ( supposedly their whole life they would tell you).... ask them to name 3 songs other than Truckin, Touch of grey, or Casey Jones and they would be stumped. In reality in 1983 or 84 if you met this same person they would have told you they hated the dead..... Finally by 89-90 or so these people bailed and moved onto the next hot thing/act...these were the folks I was referring to in my post if I didn't make it clear. It was very easy to spot the faux heads.... as opposed to someone who was going to their first show and eager to get "on the bus".....

ATG- very accurate comments. As far as the generational thing I to this day LOVE to talk to folks who were there in 67-68-69............I am in somewhat awe of them. Shit I could sit and listen to their stories all day. Finally to be clear I know we are very very blessed to have these guys still out makin live music...I never woulda believed it if you told me they would still be on the road in 2013 in 1985...and I am very glad younger folks are gettin a chance to catch some of the magic themselves. Ok I'm out.........."let the words be yours I am done with mine"

You see all this bickering can bring folks closer together. we're like a dysfunctional walton's family.
