    Plus -- I could take a shot at talking the Wife out of accepting my marriage proposal. I figure it's the least that I can do at this point...

    I just turned 40, so I am down. I went from having to ask what year it was to calculate my age to having it be this inevitable monolith.

    The good news is (before I shaved my beard the other day) my wife saw my avatar and said 'He looks a lot like you, except older,' and I said 'he was 4 years younger than I am now when that pic was taken.'

    Do you remember the power clipping out during the Eyes of the World intro? They all just looked at each other and Jerry had the biggest **** eating grin, as if to say "that was close".

    Ya! I've been FB posting and emailing that video to friends for years. Epic performance caught on the proshot. I've watched that 10+ times over the past few years.

    Is that title a reference to Jim on Taxi talking about How he didn’t like Pac-Man because it was too realistic? (“You spend all your time trying to get food and being chased by hungry ghosts” - or something to that effect)

    My friends who went to that one said that the Aroma Dome sucked, and that Santana blew the Dead out of the water that night.

    The Madrid Gras parade needed time to wend its way across the Oakland Arena floor. I was there. It would be worth seeking out Ornette’s opening set. Garcia came out and played Three Wishes with him as on the Virgin Beauty album. A dream come true to catch live.

    MSG is suspended on top of Penn Station and was literally shaking like a flying saucer about to blast off at points during that Dark Star. I was there for both that and the 10/9/89 Hampton Dark Star, and both were amazing and the bust out in Hampton was more celebratory, but that Dark Star at MSG was more intense, a real moment where the band, audience and even the building were transforming into some indescribable but organic and breathing other thing for a while there. And then they brought us back to a pizza place, or so it looks from Space....

    Nothing beats the pizza in Manhattan that one can buy from a nondescript little place around the corner.

    12 September 1973- The College of William & Mary.

    The GD always delivered at this institution of higher learning. This show was added and announced the night before, a sparser crowd but a chill vibe made for a fine night of music making.

    You mean "the real American pizza with the waxy yellow cheese on top" or whatever Zappa said :D

    Dude, first time in NYC I spent an hour walking around the outside of Macy's trying to find Penn.

    Everyone I asked would point at MSG.

    Youd think there would be a sign or something, LOL

    Then I got down there and got lost in the maze. After 30 min I found my platform. The line was long, so I said screw it and hailed a cab back to Grand Central instead, haha

    10/10 would get lost again :p

    Feel free to make fun of me for this :D

    And now I’m enjoying this afternoon’s concert on the GD channel: 12/1/79, Stanley Theater.

    That 17 minute “Sugaree”? I wish I could roll it up and SMOKE IT.

    EDIT: Plink machine on “Big River”? I’ll be damned, but I’m enjoying that too!

    I agree. Pacific Northwest was pretty, but at this point in my life, I don't need a whole piece of furniture just to store 19 CDs and liner notes......

    That was a great two show run, this being the stronger but the second night was also quite good. We made a pilgrimage to the Mecca from Providence just for those two shows. The hotel scene there was insane - there was an indoor courtyard and balconies leading to your room but facing inward to the courtyard on all four sides. There was a huge Iko Iko chant by heads at 4:00 in the morning or so. The Cleveland Indians were also staying there and their tired asses supposedly got spanked by the Brewers the next day. There was also a prom and we wound up having a bunch of random conversations with parent chaperones. Lots of hijinks going on in every direction.
