My 2 cents is that

The site has been kinda dull because of a dry spell of badger's wise and humorous words. ;-) Great new topic ideas, one and all. Specially the johnman cookie recipe-wanna know that!!

some more ideas

Sorry I forgot to mention David Gans’ GD Hour slots as something definitely in the ‘plus’ column. I don’t get Sirius but DG seems to be including in his ‘Tales from the Golden Road’ show much more of the type of feature I would like to see here.

Here’s some off the top my head ideas suggestions for features here

- Merl, Jerry and the Dead: a retrospective of Merl and the boys (with Tapers section tie in)
- 40 (41 Actually) Years of Dark Star! From Oakland to Penn State (with Tapers section Tie In) Same for other classic tunes (Playing in the Band maybe, as David Lemieux is being teased about how often he features it)
- Interviews with Bob, Mickey, Bill, Phil, Donna Jean, Robert Hunter, John Perry Barlow etc
- Interview with David Lemieux
- Interview with Charlie Miller!!!!
- Grateful Guests. Jamming with Dead
- Dark Star Orchestra; more than a tribute band?

Right on!

Well said C Badge. I thought it was just me.
Nothing against the Phil & Friends scene, Ratdog, their fans, on and on, but those guys / bands have their own websites.
After sifting through that stuff, and all the vine stuff, one can tend to forget (or care) why they checked in at all.

My two cent's worth.

I am not really technically sophisticated, but I manage to navigate around the site fairly well. On the other hand, there can always be improvements and Badger's suggestions make sense to me.

I also think the people who contribute to the site (Mary, DL, Gans, all the authors of articles, etc.) are doing a great job, and their efforts are definitely appreciated. Certainly, the Vineyard is great for those of us either filling in their collection or getting started with one.

My major gripe concerns the lack of the surviving member's participation on the site. Do they even know or care about this site? How about a chat once in a while or a message from the guys? I don't mean self-serving announcements about releases or tours. I just feel as though there is a total disconnect with the band itself.

Thanks for listening.
