Re: Too much hatred on the board yesterday for me

ATG- yeah ive heard of it. But apparently many Furthur concert goers havent. Maybe i have bad luck, and as a wine specialist my nose is excellent, but many of the guys at these shows stink to high holy fucken hell. At MSG, i think the guys BO next to me was getting me higher than the drugs!
If that jubilee don't come, maybe I'll meet you, on the run

Deadheads come in all shapes and sizes. If we include everyone in our tent, that means welcoming folks that "get under our skin", not just folks we like. With the ability to sit at home and type what one want's, people can and will do what they want. This may not always lead to positive results, but life is short. As Professer Robbie said "Take what you need and leave the rest."

Now for some critical stuff. Unlike some Deadheads, I really liked 'If the Shoe Fits." Written by Barbados musician Andrew Charles, it was originally titled Give It Up. While this song does not not fall under the peace luv why can't we all get along vibe, it can be viewed in different ways which leads to different meaning. Is the singer addressing himself or another or both. In any case, it is a good song and Phil should bring it back.
Note: If anyone is upset by this post, please address concerns to the people in charge of keeping civility here.

back in the day a combination of patchouli oil, clove cigarettes and kind bud would take care of most bo problems.

Don't you see........

You all are right, and I guess I just learned another lesson, there is not neccesarily a difference between Deadhead and dick. OUCH.

While rarely true these days, I can still be a bit of an idealist created in my youth. I like to think that all Deadheads are "cool", but the reality is that there is no truth in that. Sad.

I concur that not looking the part can get some strange looks from the crowd. I am bald, lost my hair in my early 20s, so I probably look like a cop. Clean shaven too. Dont stink (usually). I work in Risk Management. It seemingly keeps getting worse.......LOL.

Yet I am experienced (a euphemism of sorts, wink wink). And was so on Sun the 30th and really was enjoying dancing all weird by myself towards the back of the Aud. Yet could see and feel the strange looks. The bros and sistas with the dreads and oil smells were normal, and I was weird. Fortunately at age 46, I dont get care (much to the chagrin of my wife who thinks I am nuts, lol).

As long as you dont invade my space, I really dont care what you do or think.

Hey Wheelman, sorry to be a jerk if it sounded that way. We are kindred bro as you can tell. I just prefer the subtle to the more direct, yet know there is a place for both. Peace!!!

no worries, Griff...

words on a message board, cant show inflection...
so it's easy for some to take things the wrong way..
in my experience...
the way people act on the internet, are rarely the way they act in person....

but i took no offense from your post anyway...

A minor point here. Coolness is not determined by what (if any) music you like, what you wear, whether your hair is long of short, or even how often you shower. In 2006 Phil shared a few thoughts about internet communication and other stuff that seems to fit here, so at the risk of being sued for plagiarism, I will share them:

"Don't worry up your mind
People are sick and mean sometimes
They're only words
They're only words...

In the end, what we want or enjoy in life comes down to personal prefernces; the best and the bravest will always follow their own path in their listening, in their reading, in their thinking, without any concern for the opinions ot others.

Words of comfort whispered to the injured,
words of courage whispered to the scared,
words of encouragement whispered to a child,
words of love whispered to the sky.

Words have great power; use them wisely."

>>>the way people act on the internet, are rarely the way they act in person<<<

Ding Ding Ding

I really wanted to retire this moniker but it seems all my other names have been deleted.....WTF!!!

Thats ok, I can play under this name for a while I suppose.

You see, here's the deal.

Im sorry, but yes....it is fun to see folks get thier panties all in a bunch over some shit thrown around the board towards Bob. These guys (despite my name here) are NOT gods, only men. And although I DO feel that Bobby should be a bit more professional and less of a control freak, he's still a part of something I have enjoyed for over 25 years and I should cut him some slack. Fine.....I'll lay off Bob.

Deadheads have been fucking with deadheads since....well.....since the word deadhead was born. Multiple monikers, alter internet egos, fake web-sites.....its all part of it.

I'll never be a regular on here (I know, I know....a huge sigh from all of you) because its too much to one side. The Philzone (which I love) has become a platform for real hate. Folks that have met each other, danced at a show with each other, had eucharist together....will cut your throat in a heatbeat! Then there's this place, where if you state an opinion of a different color otherthan rainbow, you are considered not a real head. lol....that kills me, because after all these years, I thought there was only one qualification for that.

Not all deadheads are rainbow warriors, or nice ALL THE TIME, or not criticsizing of the music.

I enjoyed some of the responses on the Bobby thread.....but learned a good lesson. We are all (humans) pretty much the same. Just about every post, with the exception of a few, in trying to be kind and nice and whatever....ended thier post the same way. With either a fuck off....or philisgod is a fat slob, or gay or a faggot, retarrd...etc, etc, etc.

Funny really.

We just want peace around the world.....and if you dont stop fighting, we'll bomb your ass and kill your woman and children!!

A stretch??? I dont think so.

So.....

I'll go back to the rock from which I crawaled out under and leave you guys to be. I'll stop in every oncein a while though...ya know, to keep things real.

Later fluffers (which is sort of becoming a term of endearment for me)
