Preston Speaks

Say, I recently found out what Pigpen (aka Ron McKernan) of the Greatful Dead is singing towards the end of Lovelight. I've been wondering about this over twenty years, so I thought I'd share this with youall:
'She got box back nitties
and great big noble thighs,
working undercover
with a boar hog's eye.'
For more information on this and other topics, see lovelight.

ASBD Mourns Garcia's Passing

The ASBD joins with Deadheads throughout time and space in wishing Garcia a safe journey and many happy returns.

Take your hands out of your pockets
and turn on your lovelight...

Thoughts for those left behind...

By Raymond Chandler

What did it matter where you lay once you were dead? In a dirty sump or in a marble tower on top of a high hill? You were dead, you were sleeping the big sleep, you were not bothered by things like that. Oil and water were the same as wind and air to you. You just slept the big sleep, not caring about the nastiness of how you died or where you fell. Me, I was part of the nastiness now. Far more a part of it than Rusty Regan was. But the old man didn't have to be. He could lie quiet in his canopied bed, with his bloodless hands folded on the sheet, waiting. His heart was a brief, uncertain murmur. His thoughts were as grey as ashes. And in a little while he too, like Rusty Regan, would be sleeping the big sleep.
