Calling all Deadheads. We just wanted to let you know that over the weekend The Beach House will be streaming all three nights of the Fare The Well concerts at Soldier Field in Chicago.

The video will be shown on a ten foot projection screen with the music playing through a custom sound system complete with the most handsome sound guy this side of the Rockies.

Starting at 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, come watch the final Grateful Dead shows in style. We will be doing everything just like we were there in Chicago. Which basically means partying our faces off, cringing when Phil sings, peeing during Drums>Space and wrongly yet adamantly guessing second set openers.

Come on down and end the long strange trip with some fellow heads.

How Is It Possible That Cuba Has Had A Lung Cancer Vaccine For Years?

cuban lung cancer vaccine

HP – When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) headed to Havana on a historic trade mission in April, he returned with the promise of an important commodity: a Cuban-developed lung cancer vaccine.

The vaccine, called CimaVax, has been researched in Cuba for 25 years and became available for free to the Cuban public in 2011. The country’s Center for Molecular Immunology signed an agreement last month with Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York to import CimaVax and begin clinical trials in the United States.

“We’re still at the very early stages of assessing the promise of this vaccine, but the evidence so far from clinical trials in Cuba and Europe has been striking,” Dr. Kelvin Lee, Jacobs Family Chair in Immunology and co-leader of the Tumor Immunology and Immunotherapy Program at Roswell Park, told The Huffington Post.

When President Obama loosened the United State’s 55-year long trade embargo against the island nation in December, he allowed for such joint research deals to be finalized. Similar programs might have been impossible just a few years ago.

Well if this doesn’t make you lose faith in the American medical industry I don’t know what will. Cubans have to duct tape like 90 Duracell D batteries together just to start their 1954 Buicks, but they figured out a vaccine for lung cancer and give it away for free?

Meanwhile in the U.S. Where we can start our cars from the toilet with a remote control, we’ve got 90 year old dudes are walking around with 12 hour boners, chicks are sewing water balloons into their tits and bald dudes are injecting Rogaine into their dome pieces, but still no lung cancer vaccine?

What I want to know is why didn’t some Cuban smuggle this shit into Miami and become a bazillionaire? Yeah it would probably go bad on a wooden raft for 37 days, but that doesn’t explain why some baseball player didn’t stuff it in his jockstrap. We pay hundreds of millions of dollars for 3, 4 and 5 tool players, imagine what we’d pay for a 6 tool player if the sixth tool was a cancer vaccine? How much would Luiz Pasteuriguez be worth? A trillion dollars?

P.S. Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em!

P.P.S. There’s a zero percent chance this vaccine actually works. If it did the tobacco companies would have bought Cuba and everything in it the second it hit the street.

Great News Cape Cod – Bear Hunting Is Now Legal… Wait, What?

By Hippie

WL – The odds of seeing a bear in southeastern Massachusetts, let alone shooting one, are remote, but it’s now legal to hunt them here.

With the bear population expanding east, the state Division of Fish and Wildlife has decided to allow the animals to be hunted statewide. They may also be hunted during the shotgun deer season.

This is turning into an animal website at this point, but what are we supposed to do? Seals are eating all of our fish, Sharks are snacking on people like chicken nuggets, Turkey’s are attacking moving vehicles, Plover’s are occupying our beaches, it’s like some kind of animal uprising out there. I keep half expecting a coyote to steal my girlfriend.

And now. Now they tell us the bears are coming? The bears are expanding so rapidly that it’s now OK to shoot and kill them? Forget all that crap about the right to take up arms and form a militia, maybe the 2nd amendment is there to protect us from Yogi and Fozzie.

On the plus side, we may get more timeless photos like this one of the last Cape Cod Bear…

If that doesn’t make you smile you should probably check your pulse.

The Latest North Carolina Shark Attack Victim Is From Wareham

shark attack

CC – The latest person bitten by a shark off the North Carolina coast has been identified as a Wareham man.
Andrew Costello, 68, was bitten several times while in waist-deep water near the Outer Banks. He’s in fair condition at a North Carolina hospital.

Witnesses say he was pulled under by a shark about 7 feet long. It’s the 7th shark attack in North Carolina.
Shark experts have a not-so-reassuring explanation for a recent spate of attacks along the coast of the Carolinas: it’s mainly because so many people are getting in the water.

That’s more attacks than North Carolina has recorded in any single year dating to 2000.
But George Burgess, director of the Florida Program for Shark Research, says it’s all a matter of perspective. He notes there have already been 11 attacks in Florida, and there were 28 last year.

Oh hell no. I’ve been saying all along that all these shark attacks in North Carolina are happening because the sharks are warming up for a big summer on the Cape. Now they’ve singled out a Wareham guy. Coincidence? I think not. Obviously they are trying to get a feel for what our Yankee asses are gonna taste like up here above the Mason-Dixon.

This might actually be a good thing though. Maybe the shark that bit this dude will tell his buddies he tasted like shit and they’ll think that’s what Cape Codders taste like. Stupid sharks don’t know the difference between Wareham and Cape Cod, they don’t realize Wareham people are like grape juice and we are like a fine wine. This could work out in our favor.

P.S. How about George Burgess? He’s like “Hey at least you aren’t Florida”. No shit George, we all thank our lucky stars every day.

This New Beer Pong Invention Is Pure Genius – And I Hate It

By Hippie

beer pong

Slip Cup – You’re playing beer pong in your friend’s garage when you miss the shot and the ping pong ball rolls into a dirty, dusty corner. When you retrieve the ball it’s covered in who knows what. Do you want ”who knows what” going into your drink?

Enter in a revolutionary new product five Brookfield brothers have invented to make your beer pong game safer and cleaner. It’s called the ”Slip Cup” and provides a way to play cleaner by shielding the player’s drink with an insert so the ball never comes into contact with your drink.

I’m not sure if I hate this invention because I didn’t come up with it, or because I’m a beer pong purist. I guess it’s better than playing with water cups? If you’re playing Beer Pong with water cups you might as well turn in your Cape Cod card. I suppose you people like to play Asshole with O’Doul’s as well?

I just don’t understand why we need to mess with everything. If you aren’t man enough to drink some beer just because it’s had a filthy Ping Pong ball in it then maybe you aren’t a man at all. Maybe it’s time you go outside and get a little dirty, build up that immune system and stop acting like Michael Jackson on a Chinese subway.

The bottom line is this; Beer Pong is fine the way it is, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Everybody needs to just stop being such wusses… Oh yeah, and this invention is genius, I wish I thought of it, these guys are gonna be millionaires and I hate them. That is all.

An Afghan Soldier Who Deserted Otis After Visiting Zach’s Won Asylum In The U.S.

Globe – An Afghan soldier who fled a training exercise on Cape Cod last year and headed toward Canada has won asylum in the United States, his lawyer said Tuesday.

Major Jan Arash was one of the three soldiers who spent more than $1,600 to travel from Cape Cod to a border checkpoint in Niagara Falls, where they were detained.

“He’s almost speechless. He’s overjoyed,” said Matthew Borowski, Arash’s attorney in Buffalo.

The soldiers argued that sending them back to the Afghan Army would be tantamount to a death sentence because they had been targeted by the Taliban for fighting alongside Americans.

One of the other soldiers was released to Canada, where he had relatives and planned to seek asylum. The third soldier remains in immigration detention in Batavia, N.Y., near Buffalo, Borowski said. He hopes to secure asylum for that soldier as well.

I’m all for this decision. Let ‘em stay I say. In a time when most people are bitching about one thing or another about the U.S. it’s refreshing to see someone who wants to be here this much.

I think this should be policy. If your life in your old country was so bad that seeing one set of boobies at Zachary’s makes you desert your army and country in the hopes of staying here? That’s good enough for me, and it damn well should be good enough for Uncle Sam. Who wouldn’t want to leave a non boobie country for a country packed with boobies? It’s a simple equation really
