First what do you think colors red and blue represent? And then why the funky split in between? :smile:

i think it represents the mind, and the traumatic experience one can go when taking psychedelics... breaking open everything you thought to be true.

Dude, they're American colors. The Electric Skull is about being 'electric,' 'acidified,' in the USA, at Dead concerts (which I realized back in '72 at my first Dead show). Only in America could one have the freedom to stand in a Roosevelt Stadium (for example), in New Jersey, on Jerry's 30th birthday, and have a guy who was selling LSD out of a Tic-Tac box, start giving the acid away because he was so high he transcended his egocentric desire to profit, and realize 'GOD Bless America!' It doesn't get any better than this! People setting up lounge chairs and hibachis on the pitcher's mound; beautiful long-haired girls floating around with flowers; sit down to meditate and center 'cause the Windowpain acid is comin' on strong, and open your eyes to find that someone has planted a burning incense stick before you to honor your meditation. All in center field, in an American baseball stadium in August!!! GOD Bless America for THAT memory alone (not to mention the wild, curvy long platinum blond haired girl who latched on to me and said that day when she left [after sharing my hit of acid] "You won't forget me now, will you?" and I never have! They played all over this land (yes, and Europe '72, and Egypt, but...) The Grateful Dead shows made me a patriot!

You lucky bastard. :grin:

Actually that Steal Your Face logo was originally just the red and blue circle w/ the lightning bolt. the skull was a later addition. From  "Cosmic Charley" (music by Garcia and lyrics by Hunter):


Kalico Kahlia, come tell me the news
Calamity's waiting for a way to get to her
Rosy red and electric blue
I bought you a paddle for your paper canoe.

I loved the spirit of your post. It sounded like a hell of a lot of fun, but I was too young for that scene. I always wanted to see the Dead live, but that opportunity is past. You were quite fortunate to have had the experience...under those conditions and at the time you did it.

Makes me hate this present era even more reading about people who have lived through stuff like that in the 1960s... is there anywhere in the world where anything remotely like that still happens? Or a chance of it happening again? I guess not but I can always hope.

If you hate the current state your ego wouldn't be satisfied if you were living in the 60s too.

60s and 2004 is the same thing, only different shape. Its likeloving your wife full on until she becomes pregnant and fat, and then hating her during those 9 month and then switching back to loving when she looses weight. Very hypocritical of you, Zoso :smile:

Its more like only knowing your wife while she's fat and ugly and never knowing her beautiful and slim...

Being 19 means I'm a child of the 90s, and in England that means a child of Thatcher. I wouldn't make damning posts about people of whom you have no knowledge of their background or lifestyle, Cleaner :smile:

Even if shes fat she isnt ugly

This just underlines your childish premature attitude.

Our planet is still the one and the same planet earth it was in the 60s. You wanted to live 60s so that you could experience all the ultra mega super hip things MarkostheGnostic was talking about, so that beautiful slim girls could rub acid around thier boobs and let you lick it. But there is more to 60s than you imagine.

My last girlfriend was fat and very beautiful thank you, I was simply lending off your "childish" example. I did not want to live in the 60s for any of the reasons you say although that might have been fun. I suggest you take your false assumptions and unkindly attitude to another forum.

I also have no time for people who tell others to grow up. Again, take your insecurities somewhere else please. You might notice that my location is Neverland... not everyone wants to grow up.

When you have Michael Jackson licking you all over, why would you want to grow up? :lol:

Wow Markos, that was a very beautiful image i created in my mind when reading your post. I bet it was amazing !!
The only moment i can relate to this was 3 years ago when i went to a festival where we had to camp in tents through out some fields and a forest. There was this tent advertising hashish and weed on the outside and this gipsy guy cutting and selling on the inside. The funny stuff was, everybody made a huge line, waiting for their turn. A glorious view .... and i did buy my part :wink:
