Remember that skit on SNL? Deep Thoughts with Jack Handy...
Let's start that tradition here... I will even make it a sticky to keep it in mind. Feel free to post your own as well!


My deep thought of the day:

There is a reason cats are free.

As a happy cat owner, I have to agree! I took a claw to the forehead last night.

Here's one: How come there aren't more female cab drivers?

I mean, you can understand there not being a lot... It's a fairly dangerous job that puts the drivers at risk for all kinds of assaults and robberies. But I think I've had two female cabbies in my entire life. One of them was last month, so it's fresh in my mind. They're as rare as white bus drivers in DC (there is a least one).

You've seen Jerry without a beard, and Bob with a beard (in two different eras), but have you ever seen a picture of a beardless Brent?

If I remember correctly I have also seen Phil with a beard. Brent without a beard is crazy talk.

So in reflection of the show 2 days ago here is mine..........

Is it my psychedelic state of mind at shows that allows me to recall the details so clearly, or is it just attention to detail of my obsession???

Sounds like something a politician would quote to make a point about his policies being better for the people.

The scary part... seems like a lot of people would buy it.

That is both a comment on your post cowboy, and a deep thought in general...

dislike th 80's? if you're telling me they prefer the 90's over the 80's that' does not surprise me,
but if they are OLD heads from way back and prefer anything BUT the 80's I got to believe that the first batch of old Dead heads w/ Alzheimer's is getting ready to start hitting the nursing homes

No... I am talking about some of the reviewers on LMA. If you read some reviews, people say outlandish things like, "I haven't like anything after X, but this brings me right back to those days" and stuff like that, with 5 stars ratings applied.

I've listened to a little from the current tour and it sounds OKAY to me, but not leaps and bounds beyond what the Dead did last year. Positives are that they are playing good songs and set lists, and that they seem to be having fun with it. Negatives are the vocals, sometimes too slow pace (see Caution), and some pretty rough transitions. I also wonder if trying to play so many different songs in so many different combinations is perhaps a drawback in the end. There's a reason that the old boys used to have some standard song placements.

Yeah that's probably as I would go...Enjoyable. But to say it's as good or better than the old days is simply outlandish!!! I've read at other forums and sometimes her as wel that the singing really isn't that important in the scheme of things. WHAT Exclamation Shocked Singing is an integral part of the music and plays a huge role in the context of any given song. In other words...Lesh should keep his mouth shut!!

One local singer, a messed up Zappa -like style rocker, who sings each song in 3 local dialects (croatian/italian/german - I live in a multi language region), has a verse which says:

"Even Africa is in deep [CENSORED] with all the bananas they have ...."

This made me think a lot .... I still don't have the right philosophical key to pull out all the messages from it!

Many grocery stores want to attract unintelligent customers to their store in order to increase their profit margins by using incorrect grammar on signs, such as "10 items or less."

No way my friend!!!!

The name of the guy is Franci he is a kind of a local (regional) legend, but very weird. he has a super production of CDs like 3 a year so ... you will not find a great quality in the music, but the words are really funny!

This is his most famous song "Addio Pola", which means good by Pola (the town where I live), it is a meaningful song becouse after WW2 my region has passed from Italy to Jugoslavia and in 3 day 60.000 people just from Pola left for Italy and never came back. Obviously there weren't only ethnical Italians but many istrian croats and germans who didn't want to live under communsit rule.

So this is "Addio Pola",

This is more of a pet peeve, but I couldn't find the pet peeves thread.

Many threads here I notice are ambiguously titled, and/or contain links in the initial post which do not give any hint as to what subject matter the link is regarding. Guilty parties please consider the user-unfriendliness of this practice. I know you want everyone to read your thread, but come on. Some people are interested in some things, and others not.

You decide to rail against people not being clear in their titles or talking about what their title is about... and to do so, you hijack an inappropriate thread, rather than starting your own properly titled thread. Good grief Swami...

It's not "ironic" because I wasn't "railing" against thread hijacking. Ambiguous titling of threads is not the same thing. So another pet peeve - inappropriate use of the words "irony" and "ironic."

Swami, you appear to have missed the point.

You should have started your own thread, appropriately titled, to post your pet peeve in, thereby setting a good example.

I guess it could be mildly annoying....but pretty much all threads here are worth checking out, regardless of titling.

We have this little book in the guest bathroom called "1,400 Things to be Happy About". Whimsical things such as wet puppies and pink wrapping paper with purple bows.

About 15 years ago I wrote "14,000 things that annoy you" it's a list of pet peeves.

Let's start that thread shall we? I think the swamster is on to something we can all relate to.

An excellent singer from Naples PINO DANIELE once said:

"Ringrazio a chi ancora chiude gli occhi ascoltando la musica"

which is:

"I want to thank anybody who still closes his eyes while listening to the music"

Koch ... feel free to correct my translation I find it hard to make a good translation in english

Koch ... feel free to correct my translation I find it hard to make a good translation in english

Just saw this... it's pretty much on the spot... and a good point.
Is he from that particular style of music that is so popular in Napoli, but basically only in Napoli? I can't remember the name of it.

Oh man, I lived in the north... Napolitan dialect is practically ancient greek to me!

Have you seen the movie or read the book by Roberto Saviano called "Gomorrah"?

He should just move somewhere (Malta?), he certainly made enough money to do so... doesn't Italy have some kind of witness protection program they could put him in?

Very interesting book if mafia stuff interests anyone... though this mafia is hardcore, and is called the "Camorra". When I lived in Italia, all the killings from that mafia war were going on... I remember hearing on the radio, almost everyday, about someone being killed near or in Napoli.

I am nota a specialist on the matter but to be specific I have to say that:
Mafia - is a name given from the general public to Italian organized crime as general.
The real names of different criminal organizations are:
"Cosa Nostra": this is the "historic mafia" from Sicily - now weakened for the Police have successfully attacked them in the last years;
"Camorra": they are from the Napoli (Naples region) they are the today strongest and most dangerous ones - Gomorrah is about them.
"''ndrangheta" - just like Camorra but from the region of Calabria;
"Sacra Corona unita" - from the region of Puglia.

I know it seems odd to say but all this organzation are highly religious, they have strickt symbolic rites and military structure of course.

They are also organized differently... one of the problems the government in Italy has such a problem with the 'ndragheta is it is pretty much localized, yet pervasive... so they can't get people to turn on their bosses too far up the ladder.

All of these regions are in the south, and all the organizations came to be as a result of centuries of outside, corrupt rulers exploiting the land and people so much, from what I have read.
The society in Sicily, for example... it's very different than what I am used to. For example, people will talk to you all day long about this and that, but if you ask about something local... silence takes over, blatantly.

In the end it's a fascinating phenomenon... and then here in the USA it really altered... during WW2, Lucky Luciano made international deals, sponsored by our government, which led to the USA easily rolling through Sicily in WW2, because the local Dons all helped out our army...

I could probably go on all day about it... so I guess I will stop now.

Nothing revolutionary .... it just came to my mind ... after my childern went to bad ... and after a hard day at work ... listening to Crazy Fingers (06/21/87) how fortunate we are to have this music which just loads up my vital energy.

The world would be a very sad place without music .... well ..... I can't imagine that!!!!

I agree, you should, I sort of had low expectations for this show for no particular reason but was very pleasantly surprised by how the 2nd set unfolded and the sound quality. To me, Crazy Fingers is a delicate operation that often falls flat, like a quiche or something, but this one delivered and the success of the song really kept the momentum going into more fine music.
Also it didn't sound like a soundboard to me, it sounds more to me like an exceptional audience recording.
