Hey Now...

How about letting us know when you will be picking the Grand Prize Winner. I have no doubt I'll win, but the waiting is killing me. I am familiar with the normal Grateful Dead technical difficulties and have no doubt that the crack equipment crew is diligently working to get everything just exactly right, but c'mon now. Just give us some sort of update. Please!

30 day sequence

I have multiple playlists in my iTunes. The first is the order in which they were released, then I have a list in chronological order, then I have them broken down in order of release as they would fit on CDs, then there is the cumulative list each year (30 Days x2, x3 x4) in both chronological order and order by release. The cumulative chronological playlist for this year is almost 23 hours long and contains 123 songs (I didn't repeat the two from this year that were used in earlier years). Ain't life grand!

Photo bug.

This is a long-standing problem. I tried to change my avatar one time. The new piccy was on "My account" page, replacing the old one but it would not appear on the left under my name when I posted. The original refused to be usurped by the new pic. I gave up in the end and kept the old one.

It is a strange process. You have to log in again from that edit page; at least that is how it seemed to work for me. There are tiny error messages that are helpful if you find them.

I do the same

I take the songs and put in the comments section

YYYY-MM-DD-Set order number- Location- Venue

like this

1972-08-27-14 Veneta, OR Old Renaissance Faire Grounds

Then sort my songs by comments to get the chronological order for all songs- Includes Box sets, GD releases including breaking out bonus and filler songs into their proper sequence.

On Some of the releases, I have gone to the archives and added the missing songs.

Thanks to the Grateful Dead & DeadNet crew once again for the FreeBee D/L's and the guessing game. No other Band / website does anything even close to this for their fans.

30Days x 4yrs = 122 FreeBee's....Priceless!

Happy Holidays !

P.S. Sorry, I forgot about Phish Live Bait Vol.1~9.
30 Days Of Dead is still cooler.

Thanks, but

just curious about how many participants compete daily. It's always fun and challenging and definitely turned me on to some shows I have overlooked. For an extra added attraction I would still suggest bringing back the daily prizes. Happy Holidays.

Thanks for all the tunes, and the fun to see what would be next each day (and where/when the previous day was).... Can't believe it went by so fast!

Thanks especially for the vintage stuff (Alligator/Caution, That's It For the Other One, & Cream Puff War)....and the sweet final song.

Love will see you through

Man, what a bitter sweet last entry. Such a beautiful version of a beautiful song. I'm going to miss the songs everyday and all the discussions with everyone. It's been tons of fun and such a great way to start the colder months ahead. I look forward to next years run. I learn so much every year and discover new shows I would have never thought to check out. Jerry passed on when I was only 17, so I never got to experience the scene with him around. I have seen the rest of the boys in many variations all over the country, and though it's changed since those days the spirit carries on still. It was ever changing and evolving from the begging anyway. As long as we continue to love one another and share the music, it will remain to prove its "Built to Last"!!!!

Once again, the month of November has been brightened with the super music shown our way. I guess it is back to crossword puzzles for me.
One suggestion - Bird Song should ideally be the Thanksgiving Day song every year. My regrets to all those vegans out there.
