Wow. I don't know who wrote this letter to Dean Wareham, but that person is not giving Grateful Dead fans any better of a name. The supposed Luna fan's topics include digs at Sonic Youth, praise for "Touch of Grey"-era Dead, existentialism, deserving an OD outside of Golden Gate Park, Dick's Picks, psychedelic drugs, and how Luna really needed to just rock out—and while I'm sure it came from a spot of good intentions, the whole thing sounds like one big dig on how Luna never really were that popular. It's letters like these that really make me wish I was famous enough to warrant crazy fan mail.
