Introducing Ourselves - Part 2
Since the original topic now has hundreds of introductions and is getting a bit hard to navigate, this seems as good a time as any to launch a new one.
The original is here, should you wish to catch up on the who's who since this opened up in May.
If you haven't introduced yourself yet, please do! And if you already have, but have something new to tell us about you and your life, speak up!
(A bit of housekeeping business so we don't have to repost everything we posted before--izzie and I are the moderators here, and for our more extensive intros see the original topic.)
Thanks and welcome!
I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.
to the bit bucket...
Hi everybody, I'm new to the site and my name is Gus. I like music from the 60s and 70s mostly with a tiny bit of 80s. The 1960s is my favorite period though for its wonderful aura of brotherhood and its spectacular music.

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
is not a Rhino release (and judging by its reviews on Amazon is pretty much unwatchable), something about this saga does not add up. I've forwarded your post to the Rhino folks to see what's up.
Hi, I've just had my website shut down for daring to publish a negative review of "Grateful Dead: At The Hollywood Festival North West England 1970" DVD. The ironic thing is, the review wasn't even written by me. My website uses Amazon API and downloads reviews from Amazon.com. The offending review can still be read on the Amazon website.
I received an e-mail from grayzone.com claiming to act on behalf of Rhino Entertainment, who are Grateful Dead's marketing company. They said that the review was infringing copyright. I wrote back to them, saying that this was an impartial review of their product and it did not contain any of their IP. Next thing I knew, they had contacted my ISP and got them to shut down all my websites. (ALL my websites, not just the one containing the review). Do the band know that these heavy-handed corporate actions are being taken in their name?
Good to hear all you heads are out there and keep showing up on this site.
Bill... Glad you're thriving in Sudbury. One of my dear friends, Janice's son, Dylan Wing, is just starting at Laurentian and is really happy about it. He'll be coming back to Peterborough to row in the Head of the Trent in a month. Coincidentally, I was just reading about how Phish's Mike Gordon is from Sudbury, Massachusetts. Anyway, I love your blueberries and I hope you and your family are doing great!
