    Trumps press conferences are more like campaign speeches, I'm doing a great job, better than anyone else has ever done (paraphrased). He talks about bills he signed, have any of them actually been instituted? All the while blaming others for the current situation (mostly China) he says if he had known sooner it would not have gotten to this point. He knew sooner had he taken it seriously sooner instead of making stupid statements like "This isn't like Ebola, you get Ebola and you just vanish". I don't believe that the CIA and DOD etc and their spies and Satellites that no one knew what was happening. They have the top people on stage asshole to elbow, scratching there noses patting each other on the back (figuratively and literally) with Pence in the middle who brags he has been in contact with infected people and hasn't been tested. In one press conference Mike Pompousahole was asked questions none of which were answered, actually his answer to everything was I want to thank my staff for all their hard work, or at the direction of the president Me and my staff are doing a great job. Couldn't stand him when he was Kansas representative. Meanwhile, back at the hill Congress can't/won't pass legislation. They continually attach riders to bills that have nothing to do with the main purpose of that bill. an example no specifics They have a Bill, it's a great thing wonderful for the country, in fine print they slip in Gun Control, or Anti-abortion etc. On another note I wonder why Iraq and Russia are relatively unaffected.

    I'm looking for a story/quote/review that talks about the transition from Scarlet > Fire from 11/30/80. Mango might know - somehow I think he's shared it before. As soon as I read it, I'll recognize it right away - please post it here. I'm sure most of you know it and I think it's become an official release. If by some chance you never heard it before, do yourself a favor:

    Will be a time of most joyful communion. I think DSO is going to need larger venues. Just daydreaming about the next Jack Straw, Bertha or Cold Rain and Snow kickoff and being surrounded by all your beautiful faces and graceful and jubilant moves. My love to you all, friends, strangers, band and crew ❤️❤️

    Scientists!! An immunologist is developing a test to demonstrate formation of antibodies to COVID19. This allows those people to move about freely and resume life again. Once this gets rolling, life resumes normally for some people. 🌺

    There's a small business-owner I use to powerwash our house and clean our gutters. He called me before he came yesterday and asked if there were any seniors on the cul-de-sac that might need the same service (for free). Not only did he provide that service to 3 other homeowners free of charge, he went to the store and picked up some extra food and basic supplies for them. I know news outlets need to give us information we need and this virus situation is serious - we still need more good news and less fear-mongering.

    A bit of light shone into this new reality when this package landed over the weekend. What a treasure. The best release since the Pacific Northwest '72 through '74 and one of the best of them all. This is simply a shining jewel. It's 2 shows from Boston Music Hall, 2 from the Beacon Theatre, and 1 from Passaic. Jesse Jarnow did a great job with the extensive liner notes. The sound is as clean, crisp, and open as one could fathom. The soundstage is particularly astounding, with Garcia's guitar shimmering from the left channel. Here's a self-isolating listening assignment: cue up Slipknot from 6-14. If you don't have the box than the circulating Betty board will do fine. 10 minutes of utter majesty. My new moniker for '76 Dead is "understated perfection."

    The longer we putz around the worse it will be. Every state now has an infection.... and where did it all start? Example: -Karen got infected yesterday but doesn’t know for 2 weeks. -She thinks she is healthy and infects 10 people a day. -These 10 people think they are healthy, travel and infect 10 people each, 100 people a day. -These 100 think they are healthy and infect 1000. -No one knows who is healthy and who is a carrier.

    get creative. Exercise and camping are some of your only hundreds of options and it’s freaking too wet to camp here. Take up speed walking or pogo sticking. Learn to spit fire or how to crochet. Delve deep into Greek history or read Dostoevsky in Russian. Build a barn or a cat tree. Paint your favorite screen shot from pornhub or make a zombie movie. So many options that don’t involve live music or bars. I accept that There will never be live music again. Accept that and you can move forward with life. Deny truths and you will be stuck in delusion only to continually be disappointed. This is the 3rd act of our lives, a post live music act. I may become a fireman or a deep sea welder or tiktok influencer.

    From Tomorrow Never Knows Turn off your mind relax and float down stream It is not dying It is not dying Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void It is shining It is shining Yet you may see the meaning of within It is being It is being That love is all and love is everyone It is knowing It is knowing That ignorance and hate may mourn the dead It is believing It is believing But listen to the colour of your dreams It is not living It is not living Or play the game "Existence" to the end Of the beginning Of the beginning Of the beginning

    In these days of isolation I miss seeing friends. There are good friends that we see every week and there are those we only get to see occasionally at shows. I suppose it will be several months until we can get together again and dance to the music coming from our favorite band. Tonight I’m suddenly missing seeing, Vic. I guess I thought of him because there’s a movie on TV about a fireman in New York City. I remember Vic most from that late night with everyone out by the creek at Bear Mountain a few years ago. It was the first time Vic was down South and people were telling him about how things are around here and Vic was smiling and laughing and having fun. I hope Vic and everyone else is doing well. Peace and Love, Doc

    Yesterday our President kept referring to "...the cure being more harmful than the problem ..." and implying that the problem had something to do with the economy (kinda like "Its the economy, stupid.). The "problem" IS NOT the economy - Its that PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DIE, STUPID! Much as I would like to see things return to "normal" (which would include tour dates, Jubilee, etc.), I am more than willing to continue to hunker down until the health care professionals say it is advisable to ease the restrictions.

    3/23/90 - Hamilton, ONT That place had a really great vibe. Friendly Faces abound, Cool cops, welcoming residents, planets aligned perfectly. Best Scarlet > Fire I ever saw 🔥! Jerry’s Midi work is pretty spell-binding along with an almost dirty melody.

    I think the Victim jam then into Standing is the best music The Boys played on Spring Tour '90. And that is no small statement, given all that happened on the tour. Best heard via the 24 track Box Set release.

    90/03/21 Copps Coliseum, Hamilton, ON Half-Step, Minglewood, Far From Me, Queen Jane, Loose Lucy, Victim>Standing on the Moon>Promised Land. Hey Pocky Way, Crazy Fingers>Cumberland, Estimated Prophet>He's Gone>D>S>Miracle>Wharf Rat> Throwin' Stones>Lovelight. E: Knockin' on Heaven's Door The dreamy Spring 90 tour rolls on, as the boys try to shed some fans by going North of the border. Did not stop me, and the eggroll business killed in Hamilton, despite foreign currency issues. Victim>Standing covers some new ground, and the band absolutely hammers the pre drums. It was 30 years ago today. Praise DSO.

    Here's the problem. Ohio went on lockdown Monday. Just prior to going on lockdown they said we should reach our peak in late April. Now we've been on lockdown and today they say the peak will be in mid May. This tells me the earliest they are going to set us free is June. That's a long time to keep Americans on lockdown. You are going to end up with a lot of mental health problems, domestic violence issues, people sitting in their houses getting wasted all day. The only exercise we can get is walking or riding a bike in the neighborhood, unfortunately this is Ohio in late March and April and it rains 5 out of 7 days. A lot of problems out of this mess. I have to admit, I've spent the last 3 hours drinking beer and watching Chappelle show reruns on comedy central. Normally a great day when done by choice, but somehow not as satisfying today.

    I got a review for you. Jerry drops a series of mind boggling, you-gotta-be-kidding-me notes that make your jaw drop. Does that do the trick? 😛

    I miss calm, peace, and innocence. This constant fear of impending doom is getting old. Due to circumstances that I’m gonna say are beyond my control, I have spent the majority of my adult life striving and hoping that tomorrow will be a better day. It’s getting old, a little late in the game. This Coronavirus thing isn’t changing much for me, it’s just another thing, but there is a greater sense of urgency. I long for the oasis that a Dark Star Orchestra show is that gives me a break from that feeling.

    Bobby got back by his monitor and took to one knee for special feedback during the thick of it. It was pretty deep stuff, especially for a first set. Both of those shows were so much fun.
