this is great; Ives was a genius, arguably our greatest composer ever; i fear for America, though; the Fourth, it's just another marketing opportunity.

It is coming up to the 40th anniversary of Easy Rider. There was a good article in Friday's SD Union Trib about the making of the movie. When you saw them smoking dope in the movie, they were smoking dope... according to Peter Fonda... now 69 year old Peter Fonda!!! ( Where does the time go???)

There was a funny story about a really stoned Jack Nicholson doing a key scene really stoned. He wasn't acting, he was just playing stoned Jack

One interview I read of his, said the only thing he was nostalgic about whas his weight.
