What gives you the right pomo1

to judge others and say if they are true Deadheads or not? By what authority do you judge? You are defining Deadheads to meet your agenda. I guess no one ever let most of us see your Deadhead rulebook, maybe you should lend all the rest of us your copy.

I don't like that there is just a two party system and don't like big chains and I try to avoid them but that doesn't mean that I'm going to paint everyone that disagrees with my viewpoint "not a true Deadhead." I just can't believe how close minded things get around here.

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

Your Opinion...

If this is the only opportunity I will likely ever have to meet members of my favorite band then so be it. I think between this website where dead heads congregate and the sharing of music in the new technology that the once great institution (as you say) has evolved well and has even prospered. Just my two cents. Rock on.

Not Cool

If this and the Obama bullspit doesn't make you sick, then you never were a true Deadhead. Thank the heavens we still have the music and the memories of what it was like, because that is all that is left of a once-great institution.

Very Cool

Given that I work a block away, I am going to do my best to get over there. However, I want to buy the CD/DVD through so I can get the bonus disc. I really don't want to give my money to Best Buy. I will figure something out to get over there.

Great, now I'm gonna have to get on eBay and buy *another* copy of the damn thing to get an autographed one.
