Post from Another Blog

From my other blog, Sandwich Flats, but the subject matter is at least partially appropriate:

Meet My Ties:Volume 9:"Like I told you,what I said...


..Steal your face right off your head"-"He's Gone"-Hunter/Garcia








That's right folks, it's Meet My Ties, time !!!



This week's tie is called "Steal Your Face:First Set", and it is 100% silk, made in Korea. It is a Grateful Dead themed tie. "Steal your face",as you may have guessed is part of a lyric from a song called "He's Gone", which is referenced above. It is also one of the logos closely associated with the band. here it is in it's purest form:







as the cover of a double live album called...you guessed it, "Steal Your Face". It was originally developed as a way to identify the Dead's equipment, you can read the story here




Anyway, you can see that there is an interpretation of the symbol on maroon on the tie, and if you look closer, you can also see the actual logo in the background on the tie. Here is a closer pic for your inspection:







Fascinating stuff, huh ?Enjoy your Monday, Crimestoppers !!!
Steal your face right off your head.

Isn't there a Dead joke along the lines of -- What did the Deadhead say when he ran out of pot? ---Man, this music sucks.

Not true.

I'm gonna second Paticus's emotion here... I saw 'em plenty o' times (and have listened hundreds upon hundreds of times since then) and most of those I was sober... or nearly sober after having previously indulged in some beers and/or pot in the parking lot before heading inside.

They made great music... it's just not for everyone.
