Thoughts On The Dead

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

Unbox Of Rain

I don’t know if I can write any more.

Finally admitting you’ve exhausted the topic?

Oh, no: this dead horse can be kicked for a good deal longer. I was talking about the music.


The 30 Trips sampler. It goes chronologically, one song per year.

What’s the problem?

This is not how the Grateful Dead goes. The Dead goes “little song, little song, loud song, Scarlet>Fire, drummers do stuff, long bunch of bullshit, US Blues.”

Take this as an opportunity to relisten to the songs in a different context.

I don’t want to. I want the thing I like to be the way I like it.

Would it make you happy to watch a mustache with a guy attached do one of those “unpacking” videos for the box set?

Personally, I’m ambivalent, but maybe someone else might.

Okay, champ.


  1. Oh Dear..

    it is like the treasure chest with secret compartments and scrolls and treasure maps and codes and rings that every 9 year old wants..

  2. I know, I Know, TAKE A STEP BACK
    I know this guy, he cleans the women’s bathroom in my building.
    He does’t say much, but all the Girls smile when they leave
    ……….. woops tooo many dots— mickey help — billy – slip– bobby —

  3. You really know how to persuade someone to not watch a video.

  5. FAI (for anyone’s info), the cardboard box that the thing came shipped in also has the band member’s names printed on it in that log-wood font. So now you gotta keep that in storage if you want to maximize resale value. And make sure no one in your household accidentally recycles it.

  6. Good reasons here to listen to it in shuffle mode, since the order has no bearing at all.
