I always wondered where this 1974 interview was conducted (starts at 4:08).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEHogYhhmR8

Turns out he was at home. Slide 16/23 from this real estate link shows it best I think. He was on that terrace, with the cameraman's back facing the ocean. The way there's trees in the immediate background that give way to barren brown hills farther back as the topography rises... gives it away.

There used to be more of this featured on Youtube, with Geraldo Rivera the interviewer, with more of the immediate background visible (terrace railings, etc.) but apparently it's been taken down.

Good call. I watched that video last week and didn't catch that. Jerry, laughing and talking at the same time.

It's gotta be between December '73 and May '74, as he was clean shaven before Christmas, and had the beard back for the May '74 performances (Reno, etc.). In this clip we see the beginnings of it's return. I'd put it at February '74, around the time I believe he was doing most of the recording for his second solo album.

Gotta say there were photos of him at home included in the big 1972 Rolling Stone 'Signpost to New Space' interview- the place looked a lot 'cozier' then. No doubt several remodels later the place now is obviously now the height of Marin County chic.

Probably so. I saw him July 74 and he didn't have a beard, just big old mutton chops that thought about meeting in the middle. The beginning of a beard for Jerry could be 5 o clock shadow.
For a mansion it still looks cozy and simple. Room with view.

Maybe Rob will join in with us - he could be the international contingent of our time share co-op - though I hope there is some grazing area nearby as he may be followed by a herd of sheep.

...he always said, "after I've lived in it, it's yours...I am done with it"

;)

Seriously, I think it's the next best thing to going to Amsterdam, eh?

We can make it the Forum Time Share. Flow & BD, given they're nearby, can take on custodian duties, and we'll just fight over the best rooms, best views, and in general, do what we do here, eh?

Edit: Holy Smokes!!?? Did you scroll thru those pics?! Unreal...count me in. Besides, Dire, it has a COW for crying out loud!!

Bessie!!

Perfect!!! That's the spirit :)

We just gotta have some rules about furnishings considering SDH seems to be in the habit of turning furniture into splintered detritus.

Hey, as long as I don't have to clean up all the Twinkie wrappers, I'm in. Oh, and the bathroom showers are in "hardly ever used" condition. That's a plus. And I hope they've finally installed a replacement toilet.


OK, for all the sensitive folks out there: Lighten up, Francis.

Don't forget the black t-shirt dispenser he had put in right next to the twinkie machine (after you select "even dozen twinkies" it automatically upsizes your shirt, w XX, XXX, XXXX, and then, X to the power available...you get the idea).

Pocket optional; if you select it, it comes w a twinkie reminder slip (instead of "inspected by" it reads, "eat some now").

Did you see the ladder? A ladder? Really? I'm guessing that played a fairly large (pun intended) role in his selling the joint (another pun).


Oh, to those out there who are sticklers on details, I know he probably left the place before he started developing his own gravitational field, but I think he'd be OK with the ribbing. Even though in the later years you'd be hard pressed to actually find one of his ribs. OK, perhaps its time to stop...

Well, I believe I saw a bovine unit in 1 pix. yeah?
So between the ladder, and the cow, I believe someone here might pick the latter...
and as long we get around to Mandos colon... then we have become 'full circle' . A burning, tender, drippy, full hot circle

visuals are recommended, but not really :O
E~
oh, and Carolina Reaper Sauce????? I put mustard on that sh!t, and bang that intravenously. With a nice gummy afterwards...And toilets? Pffffff... That's what shower drains are for

Hey, that makes me think--what with all the grief Pluto is taking, maybe we start pushing for recognition of Jerry as a Small Planet?

I'm afraid the "Fat Cat" ghost pepper sauce I added to my sandwich last night is making "clearing the air" a tad bit problematic. The air quality in my office would currently rival a tannery running at full tilt.

Ghost peppers are so yesterday's Scoville Heat Unit.....

Step up your game buddy and strap on a Carolina reaper sauce. Forewarned is forearmed.....DO NOT attempt to "clear the air". If you do, your proctologist will throat punch you.

The Over/Under on SDH locking on to "forearmed" is 11 minutes.

Carolina Reaper Sauce????? Hmmmm.... sounds mucho enticing!! Will just have to look into that tomorrow. I will imagine that the next mornings "toilet" is an event to anticipated with sincere trepidation and witch hazel wipes ;)

(the Fat Cat isnt even really "hot" - but it is damn tasty and has great consistency)

Witch hazel?!?!?!?!

Try a bowl of ice cream.

To sit in.

Seriously, the Reaper is currently clocking in between 2 - 2.5 MILLION SHUs. Smoky citrus similar to a Ghost - I personally think the Ghost has a better taste. But the heat.....

Because we were responsible grown men and women, charged with our part of the defense of our great land, we had a Reaper eating challenge at work. I have grown them for the past two years. I brought 4 to work. basic rules were, whole pod, chew for 1 minute without swallowing. Swallow, wait two minutes before drinking or eating anything. At 2:00:01 I ate a block a cream cheese and three yogurts.

It felt like I had been hit in the mouth with a flaming canoe paddle that had been dipped in lava.

The following morning can best be described as a "significant emotional event".

lmao!!! truly awesome :)

I shudder to think of the "emotions" you experienced the following a.m. I have as of yet not even approached the 2 million SHU mark - i think I am a tad scared. - yes, i am a big girlie
