Space Crusin' in Utah

This pic is all we have of a wild and senic cruise to the parallel dimension of South Central Utah in the new (yet to be named) van. It rained all weekend, which allowed us to see the desert in a whole new way. The scenery in Canyonlands and Capitol Reef is out of sight, and the rest of the place isn't bad either. Once the Jeep is online with the new lift kit, we'll head back for some 4x4 action in the backcountry.

BEHOLD! With this as our jersey, surely none will best us in the semi-pro Durango Adult Co-Ed Summer Kickball league! My boy, Wil-San sent me the Japanese script. He claims to have stolen it from an ancient text at the monestary in Tokyo where he is receiving training as a shogun-assassin and master brewer. He believes it to mean, "We Kick our opponents balls so hard as to cause serious dirreah".

Note the number. Pure awesomeness!

Dead Set in Denver.

Here's the setlist from Thursday night. I felt that it was a solid, bluesy ROCKFEST! Warren Haynes tore shit up with the early Loser> Easy Wind. Ass kicking *ROCK* for sure! This was directly after the Casey jones sing-a-long that totally upped the vibe inside the venue. The Weight killed, and the rest of the second set was dreamland for sure. I'll have to listen to the show again for final word on the cumberland blues. I thought it rocked, but that was pretty late in the set for an objective opinion ;-).

(Set 1)
Feel Like A Stranger
Casey Jones
Easy Wind
Crazy Fingers
Lost Sailor>
Saint Of Circumstance

(Set 2)
Deep Elem Blues (Acoustic)
Me and My Uncle (Acoustic)
Whiskey in the Jar (Acoustic)
The Weight (Acoustic)
Ramble On Rose>
King Solomon's Marbles>
China Doll>
Cumberland Blues>
Not Fade Away


Favre, a purple headed warrior, pt. 4

Just when you thought that the darama would end, guess who's back, like a rank fart in church. That's right, our ol' boy Favre is rumoured to be back in talks with the Vikes. It is still possible that this is simply a brilliant off-season means of twisting the screws on the entire swath of Packers fandom. Even at that, I like it. My take - I would love to see Favre in God's Color's if only to see him take the field at Lambeau wearing them. Poor Pac.

Words from the 'Good Doctor'

-- From the book "Hells Angels", 1966.

"But with the throttle screwed on, there is only the barest margin, and no room at all for mistakes. It has to be done right... and that's when the strange music starts, when you stretch your luck so far that fear becomes exhilaration and vibrates along your arms. You can barely see at a hundred; the tears blow back so fast that they vaporize before they get to your ears. The only sounds are the wind and a dull roar floating back from the mufflers. You watch the white line and try to lean with it... howling through a turn to the right, then to the left, and down the long hill to Pacifica... letting off now, watching for cops, but only until the next dark stretch and another few seconds on the edge... The Edge... There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. The others- the living- are those who pushed their luck as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and Later. But the edge is still Out there. Or maybe it's In. The association of motorcycles with LSD is no accident of publicity. They are both a means to an end, to the place of definitions."

The Meditations last night - ROOTS ROCK REGGAE!

Yeah - Another sweet reggae show here in Durango! We even rallied on a Sunday night. These guys sounded FANTASTIC! Seriously - as good as Prezident Brown did last year. BIG UP to I-Gene for putting this thing together!! The cover of the Abbasynians "Satta Massagana" KILLED
