Favorite Phish show of All Time Omaha November 1996

Monday, September 26, 2011


Casey and I just returned from the YMCA. One hour cardio, weights and sauna. Then drive to Kowalski's for fresh fruit and Kombucha. This is the typical Monday routine after working the overnight.

This is DAY ONE of my independence from dependency. Wednesday I have a counseling appointment to find out more about AA in my area. Alcohol is by no means a problem for me, but it goes along with all the other crap I put in my body. Time to recharge. Inspired by a few people including Jimmy Rogers who quit everything and now leads AA meetings.

LIfe is good. I think the pieces will start falling back together once I get through October. But here's to a month of hardcore workouts and FEELING BETTER>

August 12, 2011

I just returned from a two week vacation and Jani Lane from Warrant dies. So I check out the video "Heaven isn't too far away". I dare any band out there to write a ballad like the hair metal boys used to do.

Spent two nights at the Gorge and had my annual Phish bath. I gotta do it every year. The magic happened second set first night with a Rock n Roll---Meatstick---BoogieOn that I swear, made me leave my body and float over the venue. Thought more about WE and less about I. Amazing band. Must see them once every year. They make all the suffering and crap we go through during a year go all away just for a couple days. Need it once a year.

Also went alone. Kristi spent the week in Denver visiting family. It was great to randomly walk about the grounds running in to all sorts of people. I think that is the way to do it. Phish therapy. Drop everything and go by yourself and see if you can make it through. Open yourself up. Great band. Will always take a live Phish show over anything.

Things are good here at home. I think I'm going to try and blog more. I'm entering a blog/greentea wellness phase again although I really know it's all about just doing it all the time and not getting to caught up about things. Life will take care of itself. Life seems to be half about escaping from "it" and half trying to improve it. Leaning towards improvements these days.

Must get this MA in Couseling done. Really wanna open an online therapy business. 19.95 monthly charge and use me for therapy all you want. Build up a clientele. Dang. Dream it, make it happen.

Some great shows coming up this Wednesday we are doing an outdoor set at the Whiskey porch. SHould be a nice set. Always like facing the skyline of the city and playing songs.

In 1993 we drove up from Northfield every Thursday to see these guys play. Truly the best Dead Cover band in the Twin Cities. I will always think that.

These are the Times

Great social change can happen quickly with the right tools and people who are motivated for change. Wisconsin is fighting the Govenor. Egypt is in transition. Lybian Air Force Pilots were ordered to shoot civilians who captured the city of Bengali...the pilots ejected themselves and crash the warplanes. A really nice wealthy couple were sailing around the world and ended up sailing into Somali waters where they were confronted by pirates and killed. What are the pirates doing there?

Also in Minnesota we are fighting to preserve the 4.5percent cuts to disability services. We have a GOP Rep on our side:


Thank you, Rep. Lohmer, for supporting people with disabilities and the elderly
Below is text from Rep. Kathy Lohmer’s (56A) update sent to constituents today:

“As I speak more with members of our community, I would like to take a quick moment and share a few more of my thoughts on Governor Dayton’s budget proposal. Governor Dayton’s budget contained deep and lasting cuts to the disabled and the elderly in our community. Balancing the budget by reducing benefits for those in our community who are disabled and elderly is consistent with my belief that we must stand with those in our community who are most vulnerable. Governor Dayton has said this week, that if the Feb. forecast shows the state’s economy in a better place than Governor Dayton had projected then he would try and reduce the deep cuts he made to the disabled and elderly in the Health and Human Services portion of his proposal. While the effort to take the cuts back is appreciated, the sheer fact that Governor Dayton’s first, quickest and deepest cut in his budget was to the most vulnerable in our community shows that his priorities do not reflect on the understanding of those ne

WE are in the times right now.

Gonzo journalists prank called the Governor of Wisconsin pretending to be one of the Koch brothers who are fixed on breakin up Unions in order to create an even wider gap between the super wealthy and the super poor.

This type of civil unrest will only increase in the months to come. It's an exciting time to be a person of the planet Earth.

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Talks Palin Cross Hairs

I am outraged at what happened in Tuscon. The Tea Party and Sarah Palin are to blame.
