Heard that Buffalo show was lots of fun. Our friend Corrina was there for her first Dead show - guess what they played? =) Did you enjoy Hard To Handle? I heard it was smokin.
Cornell was really fun. I got my wish: They Love Each Other. That and Unbroken Chain were highlights for me. We could have boogied a little harder if they hadn't mellowed out in the 2nd set, but that was okay. It kind of fit the mellow vibe of Ithaca. What a great town. Gorgeous NY mountains. And Barton Hall was superb - acoustics were unbelievable and with a springy dancefloor. Just great to hear these guys still kickin it out. Especially Phil - holy crap, you wouldn't know he's a month away from 70. Geez, he is on his game - better than ever - that man is dangerous. Missed the drummers, though. They really contribute the foundation of the sound. I'd say that even with John K, I still enjoyed the Dead at MSG more. Just a mindblowing show in terms of material and so well played, especially by Warren. He and John each have their strong points. It just goes to show that no one can replace the amazing Mr. Garcia.
Here's one of many links to Cornell:

Hey it is cool to see the Canadian's have a forum eh! It has been neat reading about "you all" traveling and following the shows! Here on Saltspring Island it hard to get the shows but I'm still trying! Missed the "Dead" tour last year, but was able to download some great shows (legally)! To keep the dream alive I host a Grateful Dead radio show here on Saltspring Island Community Radio! It is called "Attics Of My Life" on Thursdays 5-6pm PST. It is live streamed at http://www.cfsi-fm.com/ Let me know what you think and I can take requests and dedications as well! In the summer (I'm in education) when I have the time I hope to run some full shows!
Keep on Truckin'

Notre hiver se passe bien, il n'y a pas beaucoup de neige ici cette année.
Et nous préparons notre voyage à San Francisco début mai.
J'espère que tout va bien pour toi à la maison et au travail.
A la prochaine, Richard.
Ça fait bien trop longtemps qu'on parle en français ici... Richard, comment ça va? Tes nouvelles au monde du spectacle? J'espère que toi et Marjelaine passent un bel hiver.
Aux autres francophones: n'ayez pas peur de vous exprimer en langue première ici... c'est un bon défi pour la majorité qui aiment le décodage. C'est ici un des seuls forums bilingues alors profitons-en!
Y-a-t'il certains d'entre vous qui irez voir Furthur? Si oui, discutons un peu...

I am going to edit this some time for clarity. And some I have no idea what yous are talkin bout.
but it is quite original.
thanks again timhortonhashsmokincanheads.
Yay for plan B.
I used plan Z, which unfortunately involved not going....perhaps I'll use a better plan next time.
Well, the day of reckoning came...
Got my mail order back last week
and I would have felt like the return envelope drawing I made of the heart with the lightning bolt through it - broken-hearted - had I not bought my tix online...
They returned my mail order saying they had too many requests to fill. I guess my envelope artwork wasn't hot enough to win the prize!
Fair enough. I knew my order was inaccurate anyway, and I'm so glad I had the instinct to buy online. I also checked GDTSTOO and the site said that Cornell was the only show that they had too many requests for... 3X too many, in fact. Must have been the low price, historic venue, etc...So, that's the way the cookie crumbles...
We're still going... ha! Glad there was a plan B.
Quinn The Inuit?
Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
