light blogging

Odds are that blogging will continue to be light for awhile. I like to do more during the summer, but circumstances just don't permit right now.

Click some tags and sniff around here, or the allied blogs such as Lost Live Dead, Hooterollin Around, Grateful Dead Guide, Dead Sources, etc. Links are to the right.

In the meantime, some randomalia.

Thesis: Garcia on the side is about more music with proportionally less bullshit.
Antithesis: Garcia being JERRY GARCIA OF THE GRATEFUL DEAD, the bullshit found a way in.
Synthesis: Jerry Garcia's Middle Finger.

Also, re-reading one of my all-time faves, Voltaire's Candide, in French. Love it love it love it love it.

I wish the Dead's canceled October 1968 Europe tour would have happened, but on the other hand that might have deprived history of Mickey Hart and the Hartbeats. Not Heartbeeps, the preclusion of which might have left history better off, or so I gather.

  1. The circle of Hegelian Grateful Dead bloggers is small.

    Marx said that Hegel had it upside down, by the way, and that while he was right about the flow of history, he forgot that it had a material base rather than a spiritual one. So I guess that formula is Lost Live Dead.

    Thoughts On The Dead, of course, is represented by the first line of the 18th Brumiare of Louis Napoleon, (roughly): "Hegel once remarked that history repeats itself, but he forgot to add, that the first time was tragedy and the second time was farce."
