Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

One Of Us, One Of Us


Well, you’ve got all the requirements necessary to be a Grateful Dead, I suppose.

“I’m not proud of that.”

You do look so sad.

“So sad.”

Yeah. What were you doing, anyway? Were you smoking heroin off of tin foil, but using this elaborate terminology to make it seem cooler than it was?

“No. Fuck, no. I was just eating pills. That…that sounds like some pathetic junkie bullshit right there.”

You might want to rephrase that thought.

“Oh. Right. Um…”

I’ll let it slide as long as you pretend like you just can’t learn Victim or the Crime.

    Priceless stuff! Keep up the good writing. Hope Treye also struggles with “900,000 Tons of Steel”

  2. as a musician who lives near and had to travel through Whitehall NY, it is common knowledge to NOT drive through under the influence of even too much coffee. The police don’t need you and they expect the same

  3. Wimpy lil f*cker…he couldn’t carry Jerry’s haliburton.’Ya get busted fer drugs chasing the dragon in broad daylight on the pull off before the Golden Gate Bridge’ ya stoopid wannabe. This dude is no Grateful Dead!

    Arresting Officer Mija……they got Stripper Cops in Whitehall NY?

  5. This means he gets to look over knowingly at the keyboard player on the “test me, test me” line. Has Chimenti or Hornsby ever been busted?

    • i was thinking about this today, weirdly enough.

      Phil got arrested at 710, right? Or was it New Orleans? I think that was the only time Phil got busted.

      The others have been in custody for reasons of varying forgiveability.

      Chimenti seems like he spent some time in prison.
