In the 1970s, a number of fans began travelling to see the band in as many shows or festival venues as they could. With large numbers of people thus attending strings of shows, a community developed. Deadheads developed their own idiom, slang and touchstones.
The sweet flavors of Ween
This Sunday’s concert by Ween is so close, Bryan Hickey can taste it. The manager of Missoula’s Big Dipper Ice Cream for the past decade, and a devotee of the Pennsylvania-based psychedelic freak-rock band for nearly twice that long, Hickey has spent the past week blending his passion and his profession to create a series of ice cream flavors themed after the band. “With them coming to town, it just kinda made sense to do something in honor of the band,” said Hickey, whose only tattoo is the “Boognish” cartoon face that has long served as the band’s semi-official logo. “I’m obviously not alone as a Ween fan in this town, so ... market research, surveys and trends
Missoula Mom » Blog Archive » Zumba makes exercise interesting again
I’ve succeeded in being able to read while pumping pedals and handles on the elliptical trainer, a feat not easily accomplished but after much patience, achieved. When I feel elliptical ennui, however, I shift to recumbent bike and rowing machine. There’s always the television and cranking up the volume to hear talk show dialogue over treadmill motor drone. When weather permits, I work in a walk in the great outdoors. Sometimes I even convince myself that golf or fly fishing is aerobic since I put in twice the effort to hit a ball or hook a trout. Still, as soon as I consider it exercise, the bloom is off the rose: suddenly, ... market research, surveys and trends


Alcohol-related crashes cost state $642 million, new report finds
Alcohol-related car crashes that injure Montana residents boost the overall cost of alcohol abuse to the state's economy to $642 million, according to a new report by a University of Montana economist. Steve Seninger, senior research professor at UM's Bureau of Business and Economic Research, said previous estimates gauged the economic cost of alcohol abuse in Montana at $511 million per year. While that figure included $96 million in alcohol-related fatalities, it did not factor in the cost of alcohol-related crashes with injuries, he said. The economic cost of "injury crashes" adds $131 million to the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Ciche Pitcher: Ups and downs of Grizzly football taught him plenty
Defensive end Ciche Pitcher gets a low five from a teammate. Pitcher, from Anaconda, played football at the University of Montana from 2001 to 2003. Ciche Pitcher wasn’t planning on playing college football because of how much pressure he put on himself in high school. That notion lasted until his final high school season ended on a down note. The Anaconda Copperheads had a poor 1999 season that left Pitcher with a bad taste in his mouth. “We ended up just missing the playoffs and I just didn’t want that to be it,” he explained. “I just didn’t feel like that was gonna be okay.” The Montana Grizzlies and their fans are glad he ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Does anyone have experience cooking Ethiopian food? I live in a part of Oakland, CA with a lot of Ethiopian groceries that I'd like to start taking advantage of. I'm looking for any info on cookbooks, kitchen implements, pantry items or special injera-fu techniques I should know about. I am traveling to Tyler Texas and Dallas at the end of June. I could use ideas on things to do. My new old sewing machine has a blind stitch lever with three settings: "B.S.", "M", and "S.S.". What is "M", and especially what is "S.S."? Where can I find or purchase mobile or kinetic sculpture, ideally of the kind that is featured about ...
