The date of the next jam is up in the air as Kevin is checking his schedule.  I have my monthly MCMUA meeting two weeks from Today so we have to try to not play on Tuesday the week after next.

 

Election Day 2000 and it's too close to call between Bush and Gore.  Wait, this was the start of last week's post and the week before and it's again the start of this week's post.  Two weeks after the election Bush is ahead by 900 and change votes in Florida for the race for President. He picked up 600 votes this week.   Wait a minute the Democratic Supreme Court of Florida just ruled tonight that dimpled chads will count.  They are hoping there are at least 900 dimpled chads in those ballots for Gore or else they are going to come out with a stronger ruling next week like even though George Bush won the Florida vote the Florida Supreme Court is going to declare Gore President.   I still vote for Dennis.

Enough reminiscing over the strength of our democracy.  It's time to reminisce over the strength of our anarchy called Deadstein.  Actually speak to me in 6 weeks and we'll talk about strength of anarchy.  Nevertheless, in the sun setting of our Age of Periclese we pulled off another powerful a pretty well play night.  Trister was a no show as he had work and dog obligations.  Tefillin-Ken was there to be his name sake and Johnny only made it for one half as he had to get home prior to his trip to Florida.  Just be careful of the right turn on left arrow driving in Florida at their dimpled intersections.

There was a mini-revolt against Kevin's first few songs and a compromise was reached.  The Bertha was played strongly with a point and then we pulled off one of our best Touch of Greys.  I had my new Heritage 576 guitar to check out for the night and had a great night with it.  It felt very comfortable on me and sounded pretty good at times.  I'm pretty happy with the results.  It's amazing how my amp was only up to 4, 5 by the end of the night, whereas with my strat it goes from 7-8.  It's a very sensitive guitar.

The birdsong was really nice.  Good jamming.  The Cumberland was nice a fast, agile and quick.  Thin man is a Larry favorite and I'm sure he like the results as the leads just naturally takes off out of the verse into something special.  Hey, most of the songs were good.  We played with energy and excitement for most of the night.  With all the jammy songs we had on the list, most of the jams were meaningful and not just going through some motions.  

Once again, one long set without a food break.  It kept us going.  We had a mini-Bens thing to start which held us over till Scott, Rich, Ken and I ended up that the Jerusalem Pizza place.  Just a stone throw from Scott's.  It makes you feel so much better that they are just throwing dimpled chads back and forth down in Florida.

It was a cold clear day in the city.  New Holland Tunnel routing coming out of it.

Sorry I mised it, but Lance appreciated not being left in the kitchen all night. He says thanks (WOOF). Next week I will be there no matter what, any day except Wed. is fine. The following week I'm also no good for Tues the 5th. Thurs the 7th is best for me.

Hey LG, nice addition to your burgeoning musical equipment collection. Soon you'll be plaqying Larry Carlton licks on that thing.

Hey Banjo, don't forget my miracle next week...I've been anticipating goodness.....

Grate time last night. Cannot believe that the friction I caused last pm over the setlist was so unheard of! I would have thought that you would question them on a regular basis!!! I will never expend any more political capital over it anymore. Kevin's point was the final word - "we need musical control, without it, we have chaos!" David was funny over dinner, he walked into the middle of it, and asked how it started. I replied "Once upon a time there was a dimpled chad..."

One of the sequences - PITB>Dark Star>WRat>OO/ Eyes was classic! I got dibs on next the tapes (I will bring replacements)

Do not worry Andy, I have them saved for you. One if them is the 1st half of the last one. The other is...

Nice to play with Ken again! there was a real GD 1973 moment where he and Gind were having nice interplay during Cumberland or Big River(?)

LLB was king! David and Scott were there man, and once again Scott was a vocal backbone.

Lastly, the Freak Magnet was a winner. You guys really played the heck out of that one, nice changes!

If my mind serves me right, I was the one who said to Kev that i didn't care for the set list. At that point all hell broke loose and i backed out and let the rumble begin. No offense to kev, but sometimes those tunes can get tiresome. But who am i to say? In any case, Touch of grey was fab Have a grate thanksgiving to all. One last NEWS FLASH!!! Japan just sent us 50 million cases of Viagra...They heard our entire country can't get an election.

I hope I am not driving in for nothin! It is gonna be murder with the holiday traffic and the cops handing out tix! I am heading straight for the garage. Tris - I have miracles for you! I also wonder what the backlash will be from Kevin? will there be a setlist to make me shudder? will Kevin be kind and gentle? will it be biz as usual? Can I request "That's What Love Will Make You Do"???

I was given the opportunity to request a tune or two yesterday. Tommy, I actually requested the same #. We settled on I'll take a melody. Maybe if theres a miracle in your bag of tricks for Kev, you might get your request. See ya later.

I don't think Kevin can be bribed with miracle Grateful Dead CDs, you better get him something he will use, something beefy with cheese on it in between a bun. For that you may get song request. Short of that be prepared for a Hell in a Bucket --> Foolish Heart --> Thorwing Stones --> Touch of Grey --> Built to Last.

Scott- grate minds think alike ;^)

Fellers, I once gave Kevin a miracle- just because. It contained my favorite 7 and one half minutes ever done by the GD.(in the middle of an amazing 25 minute piece) He still has not listened to it. I NEVER will give him music again. I do not care if I ever get to pick music again. Kevin and David do not get miracles. period! (David for a different reason) Miracles 2-nite for Andy and Freakboy.

Gind, I will never ever expend any more political capital over the set list again. I was only making a request....
