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?

Welcome to Day 31

Once the narrative information about Sugar Magnolia is released, the compilation of documentation for 30 Days of Dead will be complete, It's available for download at

30daysofdead.weebly.com.

It appears as though all of the music will fit on 5 chronological CD's.

Pigpen: Cream Puff War - Easy Wind A (64:16)
Pigpen: China Cat Sunflower - He's Gone (71:54)
Brent : Estimated Prophet Cassidy > Don't Ease Me In (67:46)
Brent: St. Stephen - Let It Grow (60:23)
Keith/Vince: Playing in the Band - So Many Roads (78:04)

What song do we explore on December 1st? I nominate Ramble on Rose. Does anyone have a favorite version that they would like to share for our guessing game? Or have the rules changed? Maybe we ought to listen to a "Song of the Week," and select the most-liked version by consensus. This would definitely lead to lively discussions if we remain actively interested.

What surprise awaits us on Day 31?

It sounds like you are in the same boat that a lot of us are in. That's why I am grateful for this site and the folks who come here as well as for Furthur. We got to keep this magic alive.

We will get by. We will survive.

Btw = I agree with you about Facebook! Those sites make me cringe. I prefer being a tad more anonymous!

can't wait till next year

It would be interesting to discuss this a little bit more. I'm really not the social networking type. My wife spends 6 hours a day IM'ing on FaceBook, but I'm lucky if I check my E-mail once a week.

If I don't make an effort, I'll just be "out of the blue, into the black" and retreat into my own head. Talking to my cat about GD. It's becoming harder for me to keep in contact with my bros that I toured with. A few have passed now. When we do have time, it seems there is so much other life to talk about, and real time bonding with the music playing is rare.

I don't mean to gush so much, but the odd thing, is that this simple promo touched me so deep.
