I'm the one called out for bad vibes for posting a sublime song while warmjets up in the thread posting the coldest of takes is getting a pass

They also used some great discarded lyrics from Hunter's first draft of Scarlet:

It was the summer of love and I thank the stars above
Because the women took a lovin over me
And just to gain her trust, I bought a microbus
Because I sold off all my personal property

A tight tie-dyed dress, she was a psychedelic mess
We toured to the north, south, east and west
We sold some mushroom tea,
We sold some ecstasy,
We sold nitrous, opium, acid, heroin and PCP

And now I hear the police coming after me
Yes now I hear the police coming after me
The one scarlet with the flowers in her hair,
She's got the police coming after me

The cosmos, sorry (she/her)

Pigpen is absolutely not a detestable person, that’s ridiculous.. he was an incredibly sensitive and actually timid man, the Love Light raps are just a character he’s playing on stage basically, and most of them aren’t fucking gross (yea.. a couple are)

and Touch of Grey rips

man, I’m going back to the regular Dead thread to circle jerk with Beefbroth in the Shitpipes

Jerry was an addict and a crappy father but absolutely not a “huge piece of shit” he just wasn’t a saint like legions of hippies insisted he was.. by all accounts he was a very warm and empathetic person to the extent that way too many people demanded way more of him than he could possibly give

EDIT- uger got defensive of papa bear

pigpen’s organ playing is a pretty underrated aspect of what makes early dead so good

also he does seem like a nice gentle soul in that amazon doc, but idk enough about deD history to say if he’s a shithead or not and i’ve never actually payed attention to what he says in loveligbht lol

i kind of hate how that doc takes the time to shit on him like “he just couldn’t keep up with the rhythms anymore maaaaaan”

I actually liked that video, since the description was “okay I disabled comments because they just turn into misogyny... just laugh and enjoy the weird music!”

Yeah I'm not hating, I usually look forward to it, it's not my fault they titled the only video I could find of a collection of Donna yells that way

I'm a complete Dead novice, heard this cover, and didn't even know it was one.

It was the start of quar and i was too depressed to focus on watching or reading anything so i'd just load up a dick's picks and walk around or lie in bed and listen to the whole thing. I was working through the studio albums too but i don't think i got past terrapin station.

The best leaving a job gift I ever got was this boxset on vinyl. Why did I leave a job where they knew me so well :'(
