    plus, he’s got a mini-mike as well.

  2. Luther Justice Says:

    Wouldn’t it be nice to have a mini-Mike in the band w/the responsibility of tapping the footbell?

  3. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    i hate laser beams.

    No spoilers is on for this tour, correct?

  4. Mr. Completely Says:

    I think he did, Luther

    I finally met Tim not long before the end

    he was like a crystal vase filled with light, so frail as to almost not be there at all, but clear as a cloudless sunrise, an absolute absence of fear, indeed the presence of boundless joy instead….

    really striking to say the least

    I didn’t agree with a lot of what he did and wrote back in the day but that meeting influenced me very profoundly

    re: NBA. One of the refs for tonight’s game is this guy (donaghy’s phone a friend).

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,381842,00.html

    kind of appropriate topic with the wrestling in that is might just be considered pre-package, pre-determined entertainment and not true sporting event.

  6. Mr. Completely Says:

    *sigh*

    no it isn’t.

    the NBA has a huge ref problem and this guy is part of it and they are in denial but they’re not fixing games. risk/reward ratio is all wrong given that it would destroy the league completely if discovered, and large criminal conspiracies are always discovered eventually.

  7. Mr. Completely Says:

    (I do think there have been specific games influenced in the past but there is so much heat on the topic now…)

    ^^^spit h20 on computer screen. too funny Luther.

    Joe- yeah, I would be astounded if Boston didn’t win this game and get plenty of calls along the way.

  9. Luther Justice Says:

    @Mr. C
    That’s awesome. I believe Barlow was with him during his final journey and he may have ran the website.

    Might have been a little misguided back in the day, but he was a true psychedelic warrior and pioneer. I would have loved to meet him. I traded a few messages w/him through his website, but I would have loved to meet him.

  10. joe Says:

    I think that the refs (I’m a licensed high-school ref, look at me!) aren’t necessarily actively fixing games during the nba finals, but you can’t tell me that the league doesn’t assign certain refs to certain games knowing that the odds of a desired outcome are better if they put said refs on the court.

    Did anyone else see Hacksaw Jim Duggan at Festival 8? That dudexwas having a big time.

    Hooooooooooooo!!!!!!

  12. angryjoggerz Says:

    THE WORST. I just ordered a pizza, it came, I opened it… meat. Fucking wrong pizza. Now gonna be another 25 minutes.

    Joggerz if HUNGRY.

  13. Mitch Says:

    Whew. Out of the car… For now. I came home to find an empty brown bag shredded that used to contain lamb lung treats and a happy dog. No lamb lung to be found. I guess he found an Easter egg. Little devil.

    Good thing it wasn’t full of mush. I’ve kept that in a brown bag before.

    We’re trying to give the dog free reign of the house now to see if he’s old enough. So far if the only thing he ate up were his own treats, I can’t blame him.

  14. Mr. Completely Says:

    “but you can’t tell me that the league doesn’t assign certain refs to certain games knowing that the odds of a desired outcome are better if they put said refs on the court.”

    I agree that’s how they do it.

    The fact that whatsisname still gets to call Spurs games proves this.

  15. Mitch Says:

    Joggerz really is angry. I say so long as its not tube steak than dive in. Youre hungry. Its gonna taste like veggie burgers but 100x better.

  16. Mr. Completely Says:

    now now no taunting the hungry vegetarian

    it’s just cruel

  17. Mitch Says:

  19. joe Says:

    unrelated and unsolicited movie recommendation: “Exit Through the Gift Shop”. Funny movie (documentary) about “street art”(or what you or I might call grafitti).

  20. angryjoggerz Says:

    GRRRRRRR.

  21. Luther Justice Says:

    What would Mona do?

  22. angryjoggerz Says:

    The pizza driver bout ready to find out who the boss is.

  23. Mitch Says:

    Don’t shoot the messenger

  24. angryjoggerz Says:

    How about how the Greek tix have some serious GD lightning bolts up on that

    http://www.livephish.com/live-music/0,550/Phish-mp3-flac-download-8-7-2010-Greek-Theatre-Berkeley-CA.html

  25. angryjoggerz Says:
