    i hope everyone gets to the shows they want to

    for those doing the whole tour our large chunks, right on, i’m stoked for ya!!

    i prolly will c ya’ll at Spac 😉

  6. Calpain Says:

    i still cannot understand those who abandon shoes/sandals altogether when they are at shows. walking around a venue barefoot is…just…vile.

  7. alf Says:

    telas – theres a chelsea and a chelsea pub and inn fyi, if you weren’t aware already

    i’m at the latter with sumo, phoam & i don’t know who else. small family run style place

  8. Mike in Austin Says:

    Snow, I could never go through the effort to look cool. Didn’t really judge those that did, just kinda ignored them. I’m about my fat ass being comfortable and having good shoes, and enough pockets to have shit, but not so many that I lost shit. If wearing black socks and sandels was comfortable, I’d do it.

    My wife made me a collage of pictures from ’92 to ’11. Other than getting slightly fatter and grey’er I look the same in all the photos. Mostly a t-shirt (probably a lot t), and khaki shorts or jeans.

    Amazingly, she looks better. I think that’s why she made it. She was showing off her hot ass self.

  9. garretc Says:

    I have gone shoeless for exactly one show in my life, but I find it totally excusable.

    Furthur in Redmond, WA on grass in the pouring rain. That was loads of fun, even though we got Saturday night special’d hardcore… Haha

  10. Mike in Austin Says:

    I went shoeless by accident at Coventry. There was a big long lake of mud that you had to walk around/over and I stepped it in and it was gone.

    When I lived in Cali as a teenager, I went the whole summer without shoes. I vowed never to put them on. Worked fine.

    Bitches stepped on my toes playing basketball though. Made me learn to lift my feet.

    Golf in sandals occasionally. Makes you focus on your weight balance.

  11. albert walker Says:

    FTR I wasn’t at all trying to be cool

    just young dirty and high as fuck every minute of my existence

    what can you do

  12. garretc Says:

    “FTR I wasn’t at all trying to be cool”

    Clearly, if you were rockin’ a visor… Haha

  13. albert walker Says:

    coming up on dead tour I felt life was all about pursuit of the perfect buzz

    eventually we all stumbled onto H and were like “oh there it is”

    kinda funny none of us noticed what that perfect buzz was doing to our fearless leader and role model old Jer

    guess I wasn’t too intelligent in my twenties

  14. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    i usually wear shoes to the shows but take thme off as soon as i get inside the venues.

    i went one summer without shoes… sort of. i wouldnt like, refuse to wear them. if it was cold, or night time and i was going out somewhere, obviously i’d put them on. but i spent the entire summer filming surfers so i was at the beach basically all day every day and even sandals sort of became a nuisance to carry around or wear

  15. albert walker Says:

    i had a rats nest of dreads man. only way to keep them out of your face. regular baseball hats would always fall off.

    besides just grabbing the two fatties in the back and tying them in a big knot it’s the only way to go especially when dancing and such.

  16. joe Says:

    might have been the same lake of mud that gobbled my shoes too MIA. I was wondering why everyone was kind of walking at a normal rate and then stopping. I just kept going. One step, first shoe gone. next step, other one gone. 3 days of defending them against verbal abuse and they couldn’t even make it 2 steps in the mud.

  17. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    ^false. i keep shoes on inside venues for fall tour. i was talkin about summer venues tho. im usually a lawn boy anyway

  18. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    the “^false” was about my own post. not joe’s hah

  19. albert walker Says:

    there are absolutely no pictures of me with dreads in existence other than mug shots which I’m not sure if I can get or not

    the last time I got arrested I had em tied up and they took two photos to get my dreads in

    was so sketched out and all my friends were so dirty we all had the “no photos” thing goin like we were fuckin cartel players or something

    funny shit

  20. Mike in Austin Says:

    Hilarious.

  21. garretc Says:

    Fair enough AW, I guess I just don’t have a firm grasp on the fundamentals of dreadiness

  22. tela'smuff Says:

    yeah @Alf. i think i’m in the one you’re at. i’m rooming with Leo, or somebody in that crew. sounds like a BB throw down at the Chelsea Pub and Inn!!!

  23. joe Says:

    or the hipness of visors in the late 90’s

  24. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Chelsea Inn and Pub… thats the place.

  25. Mike in Austin Says:

    Sideshow AW.
