This is the place for announcements about stuff elsewhere on the site.
Before I jump in to listening mode and am gone for all intent and purposes for the rest of the evening, I wanted to note a teeny glitch in my happiness:
As I was attempting to rip my discs to iTunes on the computer, the third and final disc reported there are no song titles out there on the 'net to sync up with the songs on the disc.
Not a huge deal, since there are only 5 songs and the names are right there on the disc and the sleeve.
It's probably just a typo somewhere in the coding by whoever puts those titles up there to hook into the songs as they rip to the hard drive.
As I said, "teeny glitch." I'm outta here, headed for the Finger Lakes.
Thanks! will you be in Chicago?
As a few folks have pointed out, there were difficulties over the weekend getting files uploaded properly. This is now fixed and they're going to their appropriate destinations. We're working on the best way to get in touch with the folks for whom this did not work in just exactly perfect fashion, so stay tuned for the fix on that, but meanwhile, go for it (and let us know if you have trouble).
Golden Retrievers simply want to make us happy and will go to any lengths.
I used to have a golden, his name was Zoot (Allures- Zappa reference) and he had a brother Garth (Gimble- Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman reference). Those boys were always in competition for the petting and the attention, or to jump off the dock to catch the Frisbee or to chase down a ball.
It is so difficult when time to say goodbye to those friends. I am sorry for your loss. May Tate be retrieving that big Frisbee in the sky.
The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.
I am so sorry for your loss.
WRT the DP11 thread, though, it's right here: http://www.dead.net/store/daves-picks/daves-picks-volume-11-century-ii-c...
Sending prayers your way for sure.
This morning, at 0525 EST, I made the impossible decision to euthanize my best friend and golden retriever Tate. He was only 5 1/2 yrs. old, but he slept by my bed, ran with me, went on daily hikes, swam in deep water with me, accompanied me on all errands, was well known in town to neighbors and merchants, and slept at my feet in the office when I took him to work.
I note that our unprecedentedly successful thread on this forum in tribute to DaP11 has now been deleted, though I dearly wished to express my goodbyes to the "core" group of posters who made it thrive; you will not hear from me for some time as I recover from this incomprehensible loss. Thank you for your friendship. And please, say a prayer, send some good vibes, or just think of me and my lost Tate once in awhile. I will be back in due time./sincerely, kate
Over the last few years, the DiP series has been rereleased an issue or 2 at a time in reverse chronological order by Real Gone Music (with a single exception so far, being volume 10 and the legendary 12/29/77 show) and sold through a variety of online retailers...I think I've picked up 6 releases that I was missing in that time (most recently the bodacious '73 show(s) on vol.18).
Alternatively, all 36 installments are available for purchase in downloadable form on iTunes - so, knock yourself out! Incidentally, #15 (NEXT!) is the one I've been awaiting since this protracted rerelease process began...Englishtown...WOOT!!! (I like my physical media)/ good head's up post gd12 - no matter where it got hung!, kate
I haven't bought a cd from a mall in years it's either from this web site or amazon it seems. I happen to be on the fye web site and ducks picks 16 is available via pre order. With a release date of 9.2.14. Do you know if it will be a down load as well. I have it already but what a great show. I was hoping all the dicks pick series would make it to down load like road trips.if I posted in the wrong spot forgive me I am forum retarded.
We THINK that the long-missing pages of Tapers Section have been restored, notably many pages from 2008-2010. And from what we can tell, the links work, too.
However, heads up that in some cases the pages have different names than they used to, so older links and bookmarks may break.
If you encounter things not working on the TS pages, please send me the particulars. Thanks and happy listening to the restored tunes...
