Dark Star



Hey, it's the Winter Solstice, longest night of the year. If you have Sirius/XM, channel 32 (Grateful Dead radio) had a Dark Star marathon. Yes, they played different concert versions of Dark Star all day long. It's one of the Dead's best compositions; a long, languid, jazzy/trippy, improvisational, mind blowing exploration of beautiful sound and discovery. If you're into that kind of thing.

Check out a sample:

Am I the only one who feels like I would fail a drug test after listening to that?


*It's so odd to think that a surgeon would be jamming out to Grateful Dead*

I thought it was the Shortest day of the year. 28 Degrees in Atlanta this morning, could be the Global Warming, or cause its the first week of winter.
