"Come and join the party everyday"
I'm sitting here in Auckland, waiting for another one to show up, then freak out while listening to it, download it and finally sit back with a smile on my face. There's the magic of the Dead for ya!
I get to these diamonds usually at nightfall after all my work is done for the day. Then another day rolls by. Transitive, some might say.
By the way, where are the JAFA Deadheads? The only one's I've met were at the John Mayall show last year, and they were Bulgarians - Go figure... Also noticed Wannadance from Wanaka - there's another :-)
Any rugby loving Kiwi Deadheads out there?
Congratulations to the All Blacks. You deserved it, but I am glad it wasn't as easy as you thought it would be.
Allez les Bleus!
Hi Russ,we haven't got together for months but everyone is still in circulation,must get together after the Melb Cup!
Yep, that's right....I'm a trueblue Deadhead stuck in the E.U. for work....as soon as my contract expires, I'm coming back to OZ where the Dead are respected and appreciated unlike here in the ruddy EU:):):)!!!
"ONCE A DEADHEAD ALWAYS A DEADHEAD":):):)
in Australia, or OZ?
Melbourne Deadheads, what's up? I am now working in Melbourne, wondering if the get togethers are still happening?
it appears that he has died in a car crash in Australia, where he has lived for many years.
Hey Now...Just a reminder that www.deadvids.com is hosting another My First Grateful Dead Show this Wednesday evening from 9:00-11:30pm/ET. This will be our first in the series to showcase one of our "international" Deadheads so it's gonna be a really special show.
Please do join us in the Deadvids chat room (http://deadvids.com/dv) to participate in the interview. We're bound to cover just a little more ground! Peace...
Count me in for another Melb Deadhead. Never saw them live, got into the GD round 91 when I was in year 8. Bought the Grateful Dead Movie for $10 in a video store which used to be Bourke St. Had a few good GD conversations withe the guys from Greville and also Basement Discs.
Bumped into another deadhead at Flaming Lips last year. He was wearing a Steal your face and I had the Stealie converse on. My friend leads a alt country band called Low Rent, which has a bit of Dead influence, some Grisman-esk mandolin in a few songs too. I've been trying to get him to cover Mississippi Half-Step live.
I wanted to let you all know that we are hosting a special show on Deadvids.com on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010, from 9:00-11:30pm/ET called My First Grateful Dead Show: International Edition.
Each month, Deadvids.com hosts a new series called My First Grateful Dead Show. I host the show and each month a member guest hosts with me and we listen to their very first Grateful Dead show that they attended, and I interview them with 20 questions. During the interview, others that are present can ask additional questions of the guest host. We've been doing this show since late July 2010, and it's been catching on as people get to understand what it's about. We've found it really interesting and inspiring to hear each person's unique journey into this community and how it has impacted their lives.
So far, it's always been an American/US-based deadhead that is my guest host, but next month we will have our first "international" guest host - a deadhead from overseas. I can't tell you who, or what show (we try to keep those under wraps until show time), but I would like to invite all of you, US-based and those living outside the US, to please join us! FYI, our guest host will have to be up into the wee hours of their morning to do this show, so perhaps you guys overseas can make a party of it and get together and listen/participate in the discussion that evening, make an all-nighter of it...
If you cannot make it, we post an archive on Deadvids.com of all the past shows so folks can see whose show it was and the link to archive.org for that show.
You are all most welcome! Please stop by the Deadvids chat room to fully participate in the interview discussion. For more information, please check out info on the next show here:

Hope to see you all on November 17th! Tell your friends... ;)
