Media: Jerry Garcia’s Legacy / PDN, Guam, Aug. 18, 1995

Summary: Woke up to the news, quit my job, went to a candlelight vigil, passed one around, talked to some geeks from Pacific Daily News newspaper, learned about the Internet, signed up for class the next day, started making websites about hemp in Japan, got a new job, quit, went to Palau and Yap, went to Olympia, met some Internet hippies… somehow its today.

Where were you?

In which i clearly purchased as a mass produced “make your own hippie” costume in a bag, these lads tick all the boxes: tie-dye t-shirts; plenty of hair; wood badge beads; floppy hat; goofy sunglasses; and cut off shorts.
