Only when at work.
Word find and replace is comedy gold.
Penn Station is an awful RR station. Grand Central is much better. No comparison actually.
This place. In Mamaroneck. Nothing has beaten it in my lifetime.
She wants pizza, what she wants, she wants pizza, what she wants,
Pizza pizza, pizza pizza pizza. pizza pizza, pizza pizza pizza.
Surprisingly, there’s a little place right in Penn Station that makes great pizza. It’s right next to a donut place.
Tacos and burritos, though...
Mexican food quality spikes appreciably West of the Mississippi.
Although a few months ago I went to Taco Bell so I could eat a taco shell that was a giant Dorito. And then I saw Doritos taco shells in Safeway!
And now for some giant Dorito-quality music:
Yea, it was quite an experience! See, my family is from the New Haven, CT area, so when visiting it's nothing to hop on Metro North and take a day trip to NYC. Always went through Grand Central no problem.
Holy hell Penn Station is like being in Satan's belly or something
10 March 1981- I purchased a ticket from an "intermediary" in Penn Station for that night's GD show upstairs in MSG. Apparently the intermediaries got a bunch of tix and were dumping them cheap. $5 for one of the best shows of the month.
Now you're in my wheelhouse!
PS- Chiles are being roasted in every parking lot in town.
I don't remember that at all and I haven't listened to the tape in ages. I'll have to ask my road trip buddies if they remember that.
I will say that after that second show, we drove straight back to New York and I got in a fender-bender on Park Ave in a rental car. Fun! So any anomalies at the beginning of the second set were undoubtedly driven out of my brain by that time.
Ordered "Road Trips - Denver '73" recently, and have been listening to it this week. I really can't get enough of '73; when it comes down to it, that's probably my favorite Dead year, really the sweet spot where everything they were doing was just perfect -- the ideal crossroads of the jazzy, far-out aural wildness of '74 and the hot rockin' Americana of the early '70's, with not one bad song in the songbook (except "One More Saturday Night," that one always felt kind of dopey to me). But it's totally immersive music that completely stimulates my mind and senses.
What other '73 is essential, and won't cost me a million dollars on eBay? I have:
Dick's Picks 1
Dick's Picks 14
Dick's Picks 19
Dick's Picks 28
Road Trips Denver '73
Dave's Picks 21
Pacific Northwest '73-'74 (3CD set)
It seems you have almost all the officially released '73 I have, save the '73 Winterland three-show mini box. Download Series Vol. 8, 12/10/73 is another, and there's a '73 show in 30 Trips, of course.
12/1/79 is an absolute MONSTER show. It smokes 12/3/79 and should have been Dave’s Picks 31.
Dave’s 5 11/17/73 and 11/14/73 from 30 Trips are essential ‘73.
How could I forget Dave's?!
Every show from October thru December of 1973 is essential.
Yeah, I loved it! Definitely snagging that next time I go looking for shows to d/l.
Even “Easy To Love You” sounded pretty good:
I kid, I kid... I love Brent!
As Rob Bleetstein said in his intro “You got the impression this new guy was gonna work out.”
20 October 1974- Winterland.
The first set is outta sight! The Tennessee Jed will knock your socks off, and the China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider is simply gorgeous.
Ain't that the truth! One of the big things I miss from living in Denver....
"...as honest as a Denver man can be..."
I was watching a little Family Feud, and the clue was, "Name an animal that doesn't have a leg to stand on." So the two families are naming animals w/o legs. One family says, "amoeba," and the host is like, "Are you sure? Wanna think about that?"
"No, we're going with amoeba."
"The survey says ...." [Buzzer [X]]
And then the camera pulls back and their name is Stoner. The Stoner family. I thought that was hilarious.
You can find Mexican that surpasses anything in the Northeast at a hole in the wall off of I-80 in Nebraska. My buddy and I did just that, and I was like, "Why was that Mexican food so good?" And he said what I said a few posts ago. AND he lives in Denver, but is from NY.
