Summer 1996—Pollack T-shirt

1996 Summer Tour T-Shirt (Pollock)


The Curtain > Tweezer” 8.6 II, Morrison, CO

A timeless piece of Red Rocks history.



Mike’s > Lifeboy” 8.13 II, Noblesville, IN

They don’t make “Mike’s” this anymore.



Harry Hood” 12.6 II, Las Vegas, NV

A heart-wrenching, end-of-tour classic from The Aladdin.



Bathtub Gin” 11.7 II, Lexington, KY

The Rupp Arena “Gin”—an all-timer.



Reba” 8.17 I, Plattsburgh, NY

After waking up from the first night of The Clifford Ball, the band continued the dream sequence with this blissful, afternoon “Reba.”



Run Like an Antelope” 11.24 I, Portland, OR

A ferocious and under-the-radar version that put an exclamation point on the first set in PDX like a musical freight train.

    Costco dude. Costco.

  8. albert walker Says:

    Gold got cracked.

    what’s fucked is we know this market is only driven by liquidity. but we have government’s most likely read to print at will.

    can’t really see how equities ever go done in 2012.

    right now they think shit is getting better but if it doesn’t ctrl p time.

    I really am starting to think all the money sloshing around is gonna find US equities one way or the other

    start buying all the metals, oil, anything priced in dollars

  9. albert walker Says:

    this rally in big cap tech is just crazy too

    who would have thought buying CSCO, INTC, and MSFT would kill in 2012

    @aw – from the ground, at the retail level, the stores I call on are almost universally (with the exception of the idiots) up double digits over last year. There is definitely more confidence out there by the average consumer and both foot traffic and average ticket are up here in Indiana.

  12. Guyute711 Says:

    You can’t be fucking serious.


  13. albert walker Says:

    no doubt GP420

    I’m just worried about when austerity starts hitting europe hard in 2H it pulls down China and fucks with us

    also this printing if it spikes oil any more is going to have inflationary effects especially in places like India and China that are attempting soft landings

    I guess 2H fear has me long but with very tight stops

    would like to get a nice Gold pullback to get back in

  14. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I’m much more exciting in internet form Tela’s..trust me… 😉

  15. albert walker Says:

    but ya US is grinding up slowly but surely

  16. Mr. Palmer Says:

    ” I’ll shit on your Tarp” – i could read no further…

  17. willowed Says:

    This is true 😉

  18. verno329 Says:

    @Mr P No kidding, they make tents for that

  19. guitarpicker420! Says:

    I expect that Britain will pull back a bit on the austerity as they look likely to already be in recession. Obviously Greece is a basket case. Italy is still where most eyes are trained. Though, Monti seems to have it together. However, last 2 officials in Italy to seriously attempt labor reforms were assassinated, and that is within the last 15 years of so, not ancient history. A pullback in China would still be growth on the order of 5-7% which is nothing to scoff at.

    maybe judging is the wrong word? From what I am trying to say, if I’m ignoring someone, that’s because I’ve made a judgment and decided to ignore them. they are subtle kind of “I’m going to keep BSing with this guy” vs “how do I end this conversation now?”.

    as for being cool. I just wanted people to like me when I was young and the correct appearance was part of that. Even saying I wore what was comfortable (khaki’s). now I like to dress nicely for work because I like nice clothes. I even overdress for my job for the most part. i don’t care when I get dirty looks from hippies, hipsters and wooks. I just kind of laugh cause I’m more like them then they will ever know and cause I don’t want to deal with their bullshit.

    the clothes we wear seems inescapably a conscious decision. you still chose to buy the lot t’s that you bought, etc. so there is self expression involved and to that extent it is the non verbal clue that we are most likely to use to form an opinion of someone. would you really not steer away from a guy at a phish who looks like he missed the DMB concert by a week?

  21. Guyute711 Says:

    My crew will beat you up if you poop on my shit tarp see

  22. albert walker Says:

    ya at 7% sure but that economy is way too levered to growth to take 5% IMO

    especially with negative real rates already. in a deflationary enviornment maybe but the central banks pretending they have inflation totally under control is a joke IMO

    with any real economic activity brent would go to $150 in a heartbeat

    Spain, Italy, and Portugal all cutting back at once could be tough on world growth rates.

  23. albert walker Says:

    2H stagflation is a big risk IMO

    but I’m just a wook economist obviously

  24. Mike in Austin Says:

    I think the CME has their finger on the oil margin trading accounts, and won’t let it run up like in 2008. They’ll break that back with higher margin levels like they did silver (and to some extent gold).

    Algo driven liquidations on gold today.

  25. albert walker Says:

    Gold move today was lack of QE3 talk

    markets need that crack

    the real fly had the best line

    Obama should run with Bernake as his running mate. a cocaine fueled landslide.
