8 Ways The Grateful Dead Have Become An American Brand

While their music may not be to everyone's taste, there's no denying that the The Grateful Dead have been incredibly successful, not only in their musical career, but also in leveraging their success into an iconic American brand. _________________________ Guest post by Fred Jacobs of Jacobs Media Strategies Truth be told, I was never much of a Grateful Dead fan.  My tastes leaned more British Invasion – the Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin, Kinks, and the Who.  And my idea of great bands ...

BeachLife Festival wraps its first-ever day with Bob Weir and Wolf Brothers, Slightly Stoopid and As the Crow Flies

As Bob Weir, the longtime singer-guitarist of the Grateful Dead, wrapped his set with the Wolf Brothers at BeachLife Festival in Redondo Beach on Friday, he chose the Dead’s gentle “Ripple” as his encore. The crowd sang along to lines such as “Let there be songs to fill the air,” while a hundred yards or so to Weir’s right, the waters of the Pacific Ocean softly surged in the darkness that only recently arrived. It was a beautiful moment, relaxed like nearly all of this first day of the brand-ne...

BeachLife Festival Offers Willie Nelson, Bob Weir and Brian Wilson’s Very Un-Coachella Vibrations

Given that Los Angeles residents like, rightly or wrongly, to think of the city as the music capital of the world, there’s one thing L.A. County is strangely short on: in-town music festivals. Downtown’s FYF Fest died an untimely death last year, and Goldenvoice’s Arroyo Seco Weekend has gone MIA this year after two seemingly […]

EU Tells Internet Archive That Much Of Its Site Is 'Terrorist Content' (slashdot)

Mike Masnick, reporting for TechDirt: We've been trying to explain for the past few months just how absolutely insane the new EU Terrorist Content Regulation will be for the internet. Among many other bad provisions, the big one is that it would require content removal within one hour as long as any "competent authority" within the EU sends a notice of content being designated as "terrorist" content. The law is set for a vote in the EU Parliament just next week. And as if they were attempting to...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: I did something that scared me in Cuba

As some of you may remember, I’m always haranguing you about doing things that scare you, in order to stay young and keep your brain cells sharp. And that’s why I’m happy to report that I just did something that has scared the bejesus out of me for as long as I can remember: I took a salsa dancing lesson. I like to dance, but it’s the kind of dancing where you just wiggle around randomly, hoping you don’t look too stupid. This is best achieved at Grateful Dead concerts, where everyone’s doing th...

Action Bronson Cooks with the Ultimate Herb in 'Stoned Beyond Belief'

As far as 21st century renaissance men in our time of bro culture go, it might be harder to find one more entertaining – or unabashedly authentic – than Queens native Action Bronson. Since firmly cementing his place in the pop culture landscape during the early part of the decade, the epically bearded, heavily tattooed rapper has delighted hip-hop heads with his jubilant, idiosyncratic lyrical style. (He's also raised concerns about misogyny in his lyrics, as explored in "When Do Misogynistic Ly...

Apple could be looking for its next big revenue model

Apple has always been an evolving company. While it never really invented any product categories, it always seemed to make those product categories work better and smarter. It also found a way to make us want them, even when they were more expensive. Today, the WSJ reports, Apple is trying to find its way to a future without the iPhone at the center of its revenue model. This shift happens as Apple reported lower revenue for the first time in years against a backdrop of flagging iPhone demand...

The Importance of Fitting In

One of the most persistent mistakes people make is not fitting in with their work environments. Fitting in enables you to both get and keep a job. In terms of what it takes to succeed in the long term, fitting in may actually be more important than your skill level. This little-known observation is lost on many people, and overlooking this can result in unhappy and unfulfilled careers. Conversely, being aware of this often results in very happy and fulfilling careers. The problem is that it is...

20 movies to see at the Red Bull Music Festival LA film series

In the late 1970s, when punk rock still seemed dangerous – no, it’s true, kids, you can ask your mom and dad – the venerable old Ukrainian Cultural Center in East Hollywood was one of the few places in Los Angeles willing to host shows for bands such as Black Flag and Bad Brains, the Minutemen and the Circle Jerks. These days it’s home to tamer events like the centennial of the late great Ukrainian-American actor Volodymyr Palahniuk – you may know him as Oscar-winning actor Jack Palance – or the...
