Thoughts On The Dead

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

Smith, Gibson, Weir, and Greene


Hey, Bobby. Whatcha doing?

“Oh, hey. Breaking in this new guitar. Josh gave it to me.”

Like it?

“Dunno yet. There’s only two knobs. Really limits the amount of fiddling you can do.”


“Grateful Deads fiddle with their guitars. It’s our thing.”

Maybe you could just play with your phone.

“Not the same. I mean, look at Shecky. He’s got four knobs and a switch.”

Wait, hold on: you’ve got two switches. Look:

“Those are switchlets. At best.”

I’m sorry you’re displeased with your free ten grand guitar.

“Not about the price. It’s about the principle. Plus, that’s not the same guitar as the one I’m playing.”

How can you tell.

“I looked.”

You’re right, yeah.

ALSO: if you are wearing that hat and a tourist rubs vanilla ice cream all over your face, you are not allowed to fight back.
