    i was recently diagnosed with tinnitus as well, right after the Alpharetta shows last summer. I woke up one morning and my hearing was all fucked up in my right ear. Nearly a year, tens of doctor visits and a couple grand later and it still rings. Drives me fucking nuts and seriously has made it difficult to enjoy life sometimes. The most frustrating thing is they have no idea the cause or anything. I feel your pain, and wish you the best.

    Prayin for ya AJ.

    If you’re talking about the GD book, I dug it. Lotta cool personal stories, but also very dark and vengeful. I also really dug their lighting girl, candace brightmans book. Very, very good book imo. Keep yer head up.

    Man, I feel for you guys. Kinda feel dumb because I worry and complain and get pretty down about things that are almost fully self-imposed, avoidable, and psychological.

    Wake up…..better yet, stay home and give me more dance space.

  5. BingosBrother Says:

    Not you brother, I know you will be in there.
    I guess I am pissed with live nation

    On the phone with the lady at 1:05 she was giving me shit about wanting better seats. She kepts dropping uncovered pavs on me. I was like…no, I need better….no, I need better…, I need better. Then I hung up on the bitch because hse was giving me tude.

    Now I am pulling better pavs now at 7:30 p.m. than I pulled at 1:00 p.m.

    Fucked I tell ya

    and then Phish mail order drops lawns on me. What the fuck

  10. voopa Says:

    Wow, best of luck AJ and chonz. Another reason to consider earplugs for shows, which I just haven’t been able to do yet…and the Fox show was LOUD.

    AJ- Realized today that if that Midnight Special show was in the KPFA archives, Gans probably would’ve played it years ago. He hasn’t, to my knowledge. A while back he did play some vintage Jerry…w/Sara and Hunter at some Junior College Bluegrass Fest from like ’62…Jer spends like 5 minutes yammering between each tune. I don’t see how that would be entertaining at all, unless you were a scholar of the style at the time…

  11. garretc Says:

    Yeah, Phil’s book is great. Finished it while I was in NYC for NYE, passed it on to Purple…

  12. voopa Says:

    Dawn in Tokyo. Heartbreaking.

  13. voopa Says:

    Scully’s book is pretty scandalous, but worth the read IMO.

  14. voopa Says:

    I meant Japan. *luddite*

  15. Mr palmer Says:

    Agreed voopa. Entertaining. I footage get phils book, what’s the title?

  16. Mr palmer Says:

    I’ve got to get ^^. Stupid auto spell

  17. garretc Says:

    @Mr. Palmer

    Searching For The Sound

  18. angryjoggerz Says:

    Loving Phils book right now, cool stuff, very positive. May have to read Scully for some dark side next. Which is the best of the Garcia books?

  19. Mr.Miner Says:

    ^ love that book.

  20. voopa Says:

    Blair Jackson’s Garcia. Excellent. Plus, he has a website with additional material, corrections and updates.

  21. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Also read ” Dark Star” which is an oral biography by Robert Greenfield. Basically Garcia through the eyes of his friends and those closest to him. Also very good.

  22. Dr. Pronoia Says:

    Wow AJ that’s some tough news, and right ahead of a big trip too.

    My thoughts are with you man, let’s see how it all turns out – I hope it’s not as bad as you were saying it could be.

    And above all, don’t google-catastrophize. Talk about driving yourself crazy…

  23. Mr.Miner Says:

    Iā€™m calling no NE festie. Oversaturation.

    ^ want some action on that @ Palmer?

  24. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Let me guess, if i win i get 6 bethel lawns? šŸ™‚

    Your much more in the know than I, I’ll take your word. Just seems a bit much though, no? I mean, I live in the NE, i think its too much.

  25. Calpain Says:

    anyone ever read “Growing Up Dead” by Peter Conners?
    always wondered if it is worth the read
