I seem to remember Joy.  Was she short with blond wavy hair and dimples?

I checked out the whirled beet website.  They're good...kinda funky and laid back.  Works for me.

I was at SR84 in '73....Strange, I don't remember that song at all.  The only song I actually remember singing (I truly hated it) was.... High Hopes?!?
Something about a rubber tree plant and ants and elephants....  I hated that song....

I used to be a Johnny Winter fanatic.  I still love his old music.  I saw him in the late 70's in Jacksonville and he was so good.  He came here to Palm Beach County a few years ago.  I dragged my husband to see him, telling him he wouldn't believe how what an awesome blues guy he was.

I was STUNNED when I watched two guys help him onto the stage.  He shuffled up to the front and never said a word.  His playing was not so good and he didn't sing.  The big thing for the evening was he spun around.....once.  He is in his late 50's I think.  He looked about 90.

I think he did heroin about 100 times too many.  It was very sad to see someone so talented completely waste their life.

I agree with Antigen.  Before I got sent, I thought the few people that I knew that had gone in were more than a little weird.

Then there was the fear that someone would narc on you and get you sent there.   Which, in my case, was a legitimate I ended up on the front row....courtesy of a former friend.

Hello Terri and welcome.

I was in Ft. Lauderdale in '73.  I also recently found this forum.  Trip huh?

There is a post in here somewhere where someone copied their moral inventories.  It gave me the cold sweats!

I lost weight at the seed.  The food was disgusting and I never had enough to drink.  What fond memories.......

You should take the time to read all the posts.  You will be surprised at the memories it will jog.

I sang at the Orange Bowl also.  I remember we all had on white t-shirts (maybe seed shirts) and jeans......I think.  I was so scared I thought my legs were going to collapse when we ran out on the field.  I think I remember one of the Suzy's being with us.  Not sure though.  We went in buses???

I heard we got booed, but I don?t remember.

Was it really 500?????????  That I don't remember.

Ditto on that one.

In '73 when I was there, I had my hand held every time I went to the bathroom.  Fortunately, I didn't get enough to eat or drink so I didn't have to go much.

The founders were 'Fart Parker & his wife Smelly.

That's too funny.  I would have been too scared to talk to anyone at the seed like that.

Frankly, I repeated the seed repertoire down there when I was in school because I was scared of ending up back on the front row (which I eventually did later on....but that's another story).

Once I graduated the seed and went back to Jacksonville those words never passed my lips again.  No one in the sr. high school I went to had even heard of the seed.  However, I must add that I did not go to the school that I should have gone to, where all my old friends were going.  I transferred to a school across town.  I doubt that I would have told them I couldn?t talk to them either?..I just would have ended up on the front row again sooner than I did.

When I was in the seed in?73 there were not very many people from Jacksonville there?that I was aware of.

I understand Greg.  

However, sometimes I wonder about my sensitivity level.  Could it have been heightened because of all the yelling and put downs during all that time at seed?  It would have to take a toll after a while, whether one is consciously aware of it or not.  Wouldn?t you think?

Anyway, I just wanted to be supportive and uplifting to Survivor.  Writing this stuff down can be very cathartic and unnerving at the same time.

As far as my username is concerned.....I can vividly remember the first time I had to say that to someone at school.  My mouth felt like it was full of saw dust and I could feel the blood draining from my face.  Yikes.

Greg, There is a difference between being a "seed reject" and rejecting the seed.  The former insinuating that one is inferior, defective and a failure.  The latter suggesting that you know better and reject the seed and their bullshit dogma.

I am sorry I apparently don?t ?get it? and haven?t, as you said, ?been gracious enough to really listen to what happened to us rejects?.  However, you saying ?rejecting the seed did not make you a failure in your life? is precisely what I was saying.

Sometimes you sound like staff.  You certainly evoke some of those old feelings from me.  Thanks a bunch.

You recall correctly. She had very long hair, which she used to flip back constantly.

Hi Jupiter Survivor.  Good job.  That seems to have been a cathartic post for you.

We are not the seed rejects.  The seed and the Art worshippers are the rejects.

Keep healing.
