from a grateful greybeard in canada

First Dead show was Festival Express in Toronto, 1970, the year I began my working life; these past 30 days were the first 30 days of my retirement from working life. Bookends! Retirement is going to be just fine. Thanks CC, kutsavi, sustainabill, 3Phase, everyone at Deadnet for this incredilby entertaining and musical month.

movie-save your $10

It looks like an original version in 16mm of the movie "The Last Days Of The Fillmore" It was a theatrical release for a short time only and has recently been re-released in a modified version on DVD. You can buy this now in the GD store.

So, like, ten bucks is ten bucks, eh?

There must be at least eight songs still left in the vault after the contest, right?

If there was a way to get, say, ten bucks from half of the fifty-million people that showed up the first week of November and crashed the server looking for free songs, that could pay for buying the catalog from Rhino and royalties. It'd be like Harley buying itself back from AMF. Then find a way to get David Lemieux and Charlie Miller to transcribe it to flac and put it up on archive.org.

And while I'm dreaming: ditch the streaming, the mandatory MP3s, the show blackouts, and put all the soundboards back, too! :D))

ain't life grand?

Many heartfelt thanks for the efforts of those who put this together and for those wonderful posters who kept the info and artwork flowing. This 30 days has prompted me to read the McNally book again and listen to whatever I have pre-71. I just love Pigpen. Best wishes for a healthy and prosperous December!

30 Days and future ideas

Yeah, the 30 Days promo was great. I hope something gets going to keep me coming back to the site every day...

If the Dead.net people are listening, the next thing needed is a mobile app that could link to the site(taper's corner, the store, the forum). That would be great.

While nothing will top free downloads as a contest, perhaps asking other types of GD trivia questions could be interesting. I am a trivia guy and have tons of questions in my head.

What can I say?

What a great run! In no particular order...
I logged into the site numerous times over the 30 days and found something new every time.
Met a dude online that sent me a DVD of of three SBD's of a run at MSG.
Met another dude online and we're gonna keep the discussions going and are planning on doing a CD(s) swap.
Got two friends in line for me to burn them the 30 Days to DVD.
Kept a spreadsheet of the songs, dates and locations.
Read some grateful and (quite amusing) hateful posts.
Downloaded 38 unreleased songs (1 per day, 4 doubles, 1 triple and the "B" cuts).
Won a weekly prize! (Chose the Warner Bros. Vinyl box set.)
Was given a link to a hilarious Brokedown Palace that is started in the wrong key and Jerry says, "It's all f*&%$@ up man!"
Got some cool album artwork from Canyon Critter that looks really great on my iPod.
While doing "research" (HA! Research!), re-discovered "Bear's Choice" and the AMAZING Katie Mae.
Probably much more.
Gracias,
rg

I agree with you all

That we should come up with a weekly game to keep our interests peaked...perhaps even two or something. Ideas?
