Anyone’s free to set the daily destination

That was wild. Fun to imagine the sound a living entity making it’s tune as it travels the cosmos everywhere it goes like a mystical cosmic piper. Fun to imagine crossing paths with said sound creature. Peaceful little fella.

It may only be sound, but it’s magic. Crazy this is possible. Crazy this can be recorded and experienced.

Dark Stars like this make me wonder what could have been if the Dead played no songs. I want multi hour long Dark Star shows with nothing else.


Happy Sunday Terrapin

Phil: The part of playing when we get off the best is the part that's not repetitive. Some kind of structure is necessary in music if it's communicative. It just seems that songs don't go past a certain level.

Jerry: The challenging part is coming up with structures that have elements of looseness to them, which means they can expand in any direction, go anywhere from anywhere - or come from anywhere - but also have enough form that we can back into something.

Now for my first live DS :dance :)

Love the end of this one. I could put those last 5 minutes on loop all day. Feels almost like a Dark Star Dancing in the Streets love child.

Here are your daily vitamins Terrapin

This is a pretty interesting take on the tune for something new although it ain't really new at all.
Cool stuff though. Folk Star.
