Happy Birthday, Bob Weir!


You know who Bob Weir is. He’s the Grateful Dead guitar player who isn’t Jerry Garcia.

Bob was born today in 1947, which means he’s 68 years old.

Bob was a pretty boy

  who went through an awkward middle age.

Now (I think) he’s a handsome old man. 

During his awkward middle age, the Grateful Dead made a video for their song “Hell in the Bucket.” In honor of Bob Weir’s birthday, I invite you to view the video.

Even if you are not a Grateful Dead fan, watch the video for the lavender Miami Vice jacket, the duck, and the sheer ridiculousness of the antics.

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I’ve never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again.

I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist.

Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it.

I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk.

This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
