Grateful Dead Cinema

According to Variety former roadie Steve Parish's book "Home Before Daylight: My Life on the Road with the Grateful Dead" will be made into a movie that we can all count down until 2009 for. According to Rolling Stone, "[t]he story, which has already been endorsed by Dead guitarist Bob Weir, will chart the history of the band, focusing on those times they chilled with Ken Kesey and Jefferson Airplane in the Haight-Ashbury days." Can't wait for 2009? Maybe Gus Van Sant's take on "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test" will hold you over. Otherwise, wrapping up this week...

Yay. A movie with the Grateful Dead as a main character. Already one is being made about the day Jerry died. Now this? Not what most Deadheads want. No need for it. Just freakin' yawn.
