    I didn't believe in reincarnation when I was your age either.

    My buddy fell back straight as a board in a gravel parking lot cracking his head open after a $1 whippit hit circa 1986. I bet you can get $5 a hit these days, $2k in like 3 hours.

    Mags vs the Nitrous Mafia - all territorial beefs handled via a ski off. Seeing as we’re all dentists and have easy access to medical grade N2O, I like our chances.

    Gotta love the dead fans, when we got 6 pairs of the 100mm in stock at my shop we priced them at $999.99 instead of $799.99 like other shops did. Obviously didn't sell any at first but as soon as the rest of the shops were sold out we sold them all within a week or so haha.

    I'm pretty bummed with all the recent co marketing the grateful Dead is doing. I imagine Jerry/pigpen/Brent/keith/et al are rolling in their graves. I mean crocs? Nike? Skis? What's next Grateful Dead baby wipes? Fuck off.

    Steal your face...and wallet!
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.

    I feel the same re not getting warm fuzzies about commercialism, but really who cares?

    Since the internet age began this band never tried to restrict transmission, dissemination, or acquisition of their live catalog. Relative to the popularity of the band, the band members have done well, but they have left so much money on the table. Frankly I say, at this late stage in their lives, if they are trying to pad accounts for their children and grandchildren god bless and get it. They’ve all given way more than they’ve taken. If it offends my warm fuzzies and nostalgia, well, I guess I need to stop being a naive little bitch.

    A lot of people made and still make money off their non-official merch. They've never pursued legal action against small true deadhead businesses doing so. Large companies that just try to capitalize on the brand, yes they have and will.

    Olin, Burton, Atomic went to them, not the reverse, so who cares.

    Does anyone really care though?

    I just find it silly and no different than Kiss...or the Kardashians.

    The BC is a cool ski (and kinda hard to find) even without a GD skeleton. Now Motorhead skis OTOH!!!

    Pigpen was too drunk to be so principled.
