A comment on the Dead that I've decided to make as its own post because if I just commented on Jared's post none of you fools would read it

A pressing question for J. Two part question: Is uncle john's band in this grateful dead collection? If so, which version???

Now, a classic memory that I bet even J has forgotten: me making a lame joke about the grateful dead being from oklahoma because of the lyric "ripple in still water." Oh wait, that's not a lame joke- it's frickin hilarious.

PS the john adams miniseries rules. It's no wire, but good nonetheless. I bet for the next 30 years, elementary-high school students will watch this miniseries in their US history classes, and see some paul giamatti kick-assery.

However, Paul Giamatti still cannot be forgiven for "Fred Claus"

daaaaaaaaang its charz!

yeh man! in fact, there's TWO uncle john's bands, on nights two and three. they're electric and have longer instrumental parts, and on the first one they sandwiched another song in the middle of uncle john's's nice! but a bit different from the one on "workingman's dead" (kros' favorite album- "workin' man's dead")

i actually did forget about the stillwater/ripple joke, but it quickly came roaring back to me in all its glory. the funniest thing is that you remember it and are so proud of it.

as you should be, of course. i had to tip my hat to you on that one
