    College Hoops 2018

    Barrett is maybe the best pro prospect with his slashing and shooting ability in the new NBA and a more sure fire long term star, but if I’m going to war in the national champion game, I choose Zion 1st. I still have horrible memories of that John wall and cousins Kentucky team where they shot like 3/20 from 3 and couldn’t get a rebound to save their life. They needed someone unguardable to take it the basket. Zion is like a hybrid of wall and cousins. I’ve just never seen a guy that size so quick and can elevate so easily. If you get in his way u just draw the foul and you can’t knock him off balance. He’s gonna have a lot of and 1’s this year. And when you foul him during the shot and he doesn’t hit, it’s not by much. I’m not a fan of watching the early season scrub games but will prob watch some of the duke/eastern Michigan game tonight. I need to keep that quiet living in KY as you all may not know but Laettner is literally the most hated person by KY residents and I do mean literally. If you had a poll Hitler or laettner, who do you despise more, it would be within the polls margin of error. That would be partly because maybe half of Kentuckians wouldnt even know who Hitler was because of the eastern ky educational system, but that half for sure know who Christian laettner is. The documentary “I hate Christian Laettner” helped ease the hatred as it showed him as an actual human, but not for all. You ask all my liberal friends who are die hard UK fans if they would rather have trump or Laettner in the White House and the status quo would be preserved. In case people don’t understand what Kentucky basketball means in this state, that will help clarify it.

    Barraco interview

    https://archive.org/details/DA20181104RB so saw this interview on Facebook about the upcoming new haven show and I had no clue that Rob B played bass for Ratdog on a tour. I knew he played bass for Dso a show or 2. Interesting to hear him talk about playing bass but really it wouldn’t surprise me if both drummers got food poisoning 1 show and rob b hopped on drums to do a 1 drummer show. He’s sort of like a utility baseball player who can play all the positions.

    Portland 11/15/18

    Speaking of Albany, I hoping that the Albany show this Saturday (11/17/18) they will recreate 5/7/78 from the RPI Fieldhouse, Troy, NY. Troy is only about 10+ miles from downtown Albany. That would be pretty cool! It would also be a re-creation of my first Dead show!
  9. You might say I am a touch head ! I fell into the scene a junior in HS amidst dating an avid deadhead originally from Delaware, a bevy of local college alums who were deadheads, and small sect of homegrown deadheads too. One of my favorite memories was the couple you might consider the elders of the crowd feeding us all black bean soup and bread after spending the night post show at their place. They fed probably thirty of us. It felt like family and care and cemented what shows were about in my book. The sister and brotherhood - togetherness.

    Portland 11/15/18

    I forgot about checking 5/5/77 when looking at possibilities for Portland. There's only a couple possibilities without big repeats like Scarlet/Fire and Estimated. My friend also brought 9/6/80 in Lewiston to my attention, similar distance from Portland as Oxford Plains. Kinda want to see the setlist from Burlington and delve further, but I should really stop right now, cause I really don't want to know!! It's sort of like opening a can of Pringles, though, tough to stop 😅😅

    Portland 11/15/18

    I looked last night at classic Albany shows. I think it's one of the 90 shows and 3/24 seems like the one to me. 3/25 & 26 were played more recently and 1 in NY. And not as classic. Since we know New Haven is 5/5/77, it's easy to check overlaps, and that would leave only Jed 2 nights in a row. But I was going to see what Higher Ground and Portland are first before really trying to predict. But if it's 3/24 that has Playing UJB Terrapin, so it'd be a lot of terrapins just having been played in NoHo, if they do it in Portland too.. We'll see. I love this!

    Summertime Blues

    "Summertime Blues" was originally recorded by Eddie Cochran in 1958, Blue Cheer recorded it for their debut album "Vincebus Eruptum" in 1968. This was one of the first Albums albums I bought, Sad to say the very first was Sonny and Cher (1965 I think) prior to '68 most of the music I bought was singles that had been removed from Jukeboxes at ten cents a record. 1968 marked a big change in my life and my taste in music. I had tried weed, but didn't care for it 1968 brought Psychedelics and amphetamines . Life was never the same

    End of the line in 95 with the scene collapsing.

    Interested subject. I especially like the comment from Greg about how the tour heads didn’t parent the touch heads. “Parenting” or whatever you want to call it seems essential to thrive and emmerse yourself in this scene and community. The unparented or those who refuse to be parented usually end up on the fringe or go away. Some of the older heads I’ve met through dark star taught me as much about life as any single human beings outside of my parents. We all come in a little rough around the edges and sometimes the scene can seem like a free for all. I’m sure it did in 95. Maybe the darkness is from your eyes.. Maybe you had too much too fast.

    Zion might not even be best player on that team. Duke scary good

    Rude, you didn’t miss out if you saw one show. Somewhere in there, even if it was one song, Jerry was as good as he’s ever been. The vibe lives on at DSO shows. I worry about them but I believe the band has a maturity about them that will keep them from succumbing to a similar demise. Cool heads prevail and they got that going on.

    He could never shoot but he hustles his ass off. His last game he played in for Charlotte he had 12 pts and 12 boards. He was already at his peak at KY unfortunately for Charlotte. Hes mlre or a defensive specialist imo. He gets the toughest assignment of defense.

    MKG left that motor in KY cause hes been mediocre in Charlotte. Very inconsistent. Borrego may get more out of him, he is with other players.

    College Hoops 2018

    In those games that you can’t shoot to save your life, having a guy who pulls 5 offensive boards a day is huge. Kentucky also had Michael Kidd-Gilchrist who had a motor unlike any player I’ve seen. He was the coach on the floor gathering the troops because calipari sucks at having to coach without a team leader and the time he had a leader in Tyler Ulis and Devin booker, he benched them for the Harrison twins. Alltime bonehead move

    As always, all of this is largely contingent on whether or not the starters (especially Zion) can stay healthy. Duke managed to enjoy a whopping 11 total games with Kyrie Irving before he went out with the foot injury from hell.
  23. The last thing Jerry wanted was to be the captain of THAT ship. It became too big for anyone to handle....

    College Hoops 2018

    27 points, 16 rebounds, six blocks and four assists Zions stats on Sunday. 1 player can make a team and a guy with hustle like this can make duke achieve a championship. Anthony Davis did it for Kentucky in 2012. The rest of the team needs to be solid but all of the top teams will be solid. He elevates them to potential that other teams can’t match.

    Good afternoon everybody, Packers, Falcons, Steelers, Vikings, Chiefs & will take the Giants this week.....good luck all
  26. I unfortunately only saw the end so I knew nothing about anything. I was in Memphis in 95 where the newspaper wrote that more people came from out of state to a music event than any time in Tennessee history (30k out of state estimate). There were 17k seats in the pyramid and an estimated 50k people there. It was all fingers in the air. No one got a ticket that didn’t have one. It was my 2nd show and Beale street after was a fun madhouse. I still felt like a complete outsider. It wasn’t until summer tour that I started to understand and poof it was gone. I did have both night deer creek tix and the 3rd night of our run was cancelled. The Indianapolis Star article was scathing. I have it laminated and it’s somewhere at my moms house. The picture of a scoundrel trying to juke a police dog to get to the fence still is as clear as day in my mind. It was a perfect pic with the dogs mouth open barking and the gate crasher frozen in time leaning to the side trying to make a move to the fence anyway. The fence was little more than anyone’s back yard fence. Now all venues are barbed wire. That one had a 4 foot Orange plastic warning fence and a 10’ wooden back one up the hill a little bit. It seems weird to think a 20k seat outdoor venue isn’t fortified now. You have to think that none of this stress helped Jerry’s addiction and more than likely caused him to use more and more to escape the reality that this was becoming exponentially bigger and bigger with no end in sight.

    So true about Brent. I think he is underrated. My memories after he passed are slivers of light, glimpses of hope. Hornsby was promising but didn’t pan out. Jerry band ‘91 and’93 satisfied. Midnight hour/ Cumberland, Visions of Johanna, that was cool. Yea, you wonder if they had packed it in, made some kind of drastic change after Brent passed, maybe the last chapter wouldn’t have been the last chapter.
  28. Crashes started in mid to late 80's with stadium shows added in addition to the release of IN THE DARK. Keller wrote a song about the Deer Creek debacle. Top 40 has the potential to ruin anything outside of packing the band's pockets with dough. Vince didn't help anything either...when Brent died, the scene collapsed, in my opinion...I saw only 3 local shows in 1995..
