Cool Stuff on Other Sites
In the course of our various online travels, we sometimes run across stuff that's cool enough that we want to share it with folks here, and which wouldn't exactly work to drag here wholesale. Quite often we can address this by posting links in relevant topics, but sometimes there isn't one.
So this is the place to post links to such items.
The Grateful Project is about a band's 50-year love affair with its fans. It's our way of telling The Grateful Dead just how much their music has meant to us throughout our lives. You can participate by sharing a story or poem about a song or a show on one of our blogs. Or post a photo of original artwork you were inspired to create yourself or buy from another. Our hope is to create a beautiful book together that we present to the Dead in 2015.
The Grateful Project is a non-commercial enterprise and any profits will be given to various charities supporting the arts and music. "Life may be sweeter for this, I don't know. See how it feels in the end."
We're aware of the issue with the old clips and working on fixing it.
Also, old TS links still not working. Any hope?
Jon Sievert, who took some of my favorite Jerry photos ever, shares some of them and the stories here.

Since the website redesign, none of the audio works for me. Flypaper and the old way of listening to the GD Hour with windows media player worked great. I am distraught.

... but cool. I received this link from a good friend a week or so ago. I think the original article appeared in the SF Gate ("Dead Man Talking" March 21 by Joel Selvin) but I'm not certain. I had never heard this story before.
