Fifty years ago today the Grateful Dead played Dark Star for the first time on stage.
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/27/opinion/grateful-dead-dark-star-anniversary.html

This is not my favorite Dark Star. And Dark Star is not one of my favorites. But, hey! History!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Star_(song)

There is a myth/story/ urban legend that the song was named after a real astronomical discovery: A Real Dark Star, LGM-1. * According to the myth, astronomers discovered this the year before and everyone thought it was aliens trying to communicate with us. And some versions of the story claimed that the aliens successfully communicated with Garcia and that is how this song came about.

This is not good "Cleaning House" music. Best bet is to have a medicinal herbal remedy, lay down somewhere comfortable, put on the headphones, close your eyes, and visit the cosmos.

Hey, if you get into orbit you can check out the curvature of the Earth.

So here it is
Dark Star, Filmore West, 02/27/1969

Grindline built a bunch of skateparks in the Seattle area when I was in my teens and 20s. I learned to skate bowls at the Bainbridge Island park, and later lived across the street from the Ballard Bowl.

I just found out they had a band. RIP Monk!

Mashups with Lana Del Rey v. Marina and the Diamonds, Tove Lo, or Lorde. Some of them are pretty good, especially if you like all of these albums (I do like and have owned all of these albums except for Tove Lo).

Recently discovered this less-popular track from Sade and listening to it right now as I'm writing this :)
