Thoughts On The Dead

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

Rejected Venues For The 50th Anniversary Shows

  • Lock’n.
  • Bonnaroo.
  • Month-long residences at the Warfield and Radio City.
  • A KOA site outside Indianapolis well-known for its meth labs.
  • MSG. Not Madison Square Garden: Monosodium Glutamate. Not even Bobby could make any sense out of that one, and it was his idea.
  • Egypt, until it was explained how unbelievably bad an idea this was nowadays. (At least one SMWINMDJ* had not heard about Sadat’s death.)
  • Garcia’s grAAAAAAve! OOOOOOooooh! SPOOOOoooooOOOky!
  • The untidy home of a weird, sickly Florida resident.
  • Wherever this fuckin’ Mt. Gox place is and get back all that money I lost in those fuckin’ Bitcoins. (Mickey’s suggestion.)
  • Vegas for six months, shows every night and twice on weekends. (Jill’s idea.)
  • Bobby suggested hitting the Houston Astrodome, Giants Stadium, Shea Stadium, and close at Winterland. Phil pulled him aside and talked to him, quietly, and then Bobby started to rage against the dying the light.
  • It was not clear whom Bobby was addressing, but Phil got him under control after a moment and led him back to the table, where he shnuffed and whurfed and blew his nose and dried his eyes and asked,
  • “How about a free show in that plaza by the Twin Towers?”
  • “Why is everyone looking at me like that?”
