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!

strangest of places...

Hey mountainjam28 and UnbrokenSunflower.
Just noticed that you recently made some posts (including your condolences for my Uncle, mountainjam28, many thanks) and you're both new too!! I've not been here long either, only just starting to ramble a bit; probably ramble too much, buy whaddya do?!
Basically a hello, really. Hope you're both fine and fluffy. Feel free to message me if you need any help, although don't ask anything too technical as really i haven't a clue.....hell, i can't even remember where i've posted stuff!! Guess i'm still trying.

You might want to check out this site if haven't already for some great Dead videos and live footage, an awesome archive of all things Kynd -
The video library is at the bottom of the page.

Hello friends!

My name is Lindsay. I'm a second generation Deadhead... my parents took me to some shows in the early 90's.. unfortunately I was too young to remember! However, I've been hooked ever since... pretty much listen to the Dead every spare minute I get out of every day. I'm looking forward to following Phil and Bobby around this summer on the Furthur tour.

Can't wait to chat with you beautiful guys and gals!

welcome, new folks

I'm sure there will be no shortage of helpful advice, but meanwhile, why not start with this week's Taper's Section, which will immediately introduce you to samples of several different eras (and lots of comments...)? Click the Features link on the upper left and you should be able to navigate, but speak up if you get lost. Lots of great listening in your future...

New to the Grateful Dead

Hey everyone my name's Charlie. I have to confess I've only heard portions of a few of the Grateful Dead's songs. I was hoping I could get some direction on where I should start. You know which albums and tracks I should use to ease myself into the world of the Grateful Dead. Any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Finally made a profile...i'm a n00b

Well I have loved this site for a couple years and finally made a profile for myself. I love reading the stories and going through set lists. I saw the Dead 7 times before Jerry left and feel very blessed. My first show was 11/30/94 in Denver. I went thinking it would be fun, but it wasn't gonna be all they said it was. Well that first day was just soo overwhelming. The lot was so busy and lively. That first show was good but I think i was a mesmerized by my surroundings to fully enjoy the music. Well the next night was a different story. I was an 18 yr old college kid from WYO and anyways, I must've had sucker written on my forehead cuz i was sold a lot of bunk goodies. Nothing was happenin as I walked up the steps to go in. Kinda bummin. Then some brother held out his hand and GAVE me some boomers. I make it inside and the second song is 12 minutes of Sugaree. Jerry had a yellow light on him and I he reminded me of an innocent kitten playin with a ball of yarn. I got lost in watching him. Then, I snapped out of it and looked at the heads un the front row. There was nothin but smiles, dreadlocks and elbows flyin everwhere. Then I saw(in my mind) this wave of energy form from this one guy. It was like a drop in a pool of water, and the energy was expanding in a 360 pattern like a wave. Woah!!! It was comin towards me. I saw it climb up the seats through the people. The wave hit me. I started crying!!! What is happening to me. I have never experienced anything like this... It's just music. A stranger next to me must have seen me crying and asked if I was ok. I sniffled and said, "I've NEVER been better!!!" He passed me a bowl. I knew from that point on that the music and love of the Grateful Dead was for me.
Hi everybody!!! So glad to be here.

Control for smilers can't be bought
