Grateful Dead

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!

Hey Now

I,ve been on bus since '83. Grew up in MD--Hagerstown--went to college at Towson University. Didn,t quite finish, so now I toil the line for GM making sure that my three teenaged offspring do not follow my footsteps.

Anyway, I live with my three kids in the Flint, Michigan area. Hopiong to find some like minded folks to some shows with. Recently saw Govt Mule and Leon Russell--hoping to find folks who also will go. It's a real drag being the only Deadhead at work--I mean I'm 45 and work with folks my age and they look at me so weirdly--and I just smile cause "I know a little something they will never know".

That's about it. There is a band that plays the state--Covert Operations--I strongly recomend that if you are a Deadhead then go to a show. They have a MySpace account with a list of show dates. Hope that everyone everywhere has a joyful and peaceful holiday season.

Remember if you are out celebrating: The cops don't need you and they expect the same.--Bob Dylan.

My Dead Story

Allright first to get this out of the way Im 19 and live in Grand Rapids MI and I love it here in Michigan. I just recentley started listening to the Grateful Dead. My 1st Grateful Dead experiance was seeing the Grateful Dead Movie on PBS (They do Grateful Dead shows all the time come pledge time) and dug it. I didnt listen to them for a while was induldged in listening to new music of any genre except Rap (Ive tried to dig it but I dont). Since alot of the bands I like r jam bands I found my way back to the Grateful Dead and side projects (Old and in the Way is amazing turned me onto folk and bluegrass). Hopefully will see a Dead related band show soon. I also like different styles of music and local music of all styles and some favorite artist include My Morning Jacket, Allman Brothers Band, Kid Rock, Al Stewart, Bob Seger, John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Queens of the Stone Age, Steely Dan and all Dead related projects. The hospitallity here has been good the people r nice and I hope to continue on my Long Strange Trip known as life.

Peace

Hi

Been a Dead lover since the early 70's, been to many shows and still love the magic. First time navigating this site and am enjoying discovering all the exciting elements here. Time is truly a continuum and the Dead prove it over and over.

Hey Now Old Friends and New

Hello Friends, some of ya may know me from other online GD forums/chats.. For those who don't My name is John...or Johnnycable as I have been known online since the early 90's. From the my old AOL days being a guide JCGuide and hanging in the 710 room and the Rose Garden, to IRC dalnet GDead rooms and MarsHotel and others inbetween to here and DNC. Still on that long strange trip, and loving it. My 1st Grateful Dead show was, and I was lucky to have seen them then....Roosevelt Stadium, NJ Aug. 1974 incredable to have seen the wall of sound, and 4 hrs of music. I was 15, changed my life, about music, about life in general. From there I ended up here, and all because of friends. If there was nothing else to be grateful besides the music they have given us, it would absolutely have to be friends and love and all the grate things that go with them. After Jerrys passing, we all felt the loss and also felt lost, and somewhat helpless. Members reformed, regrouped, rejoined, but it was'nt the same for us and would never be. The Net developed, and we all slowly became rejoined even without our fav band, but with new bands and old friends, and here we are somewhat together again, and with that mutual place we can always talk and hang with our friends, and continue the culture we created. We truly are everywhere and truly are a bond of people that is unrivaled by any other humans on the planet. There's nothing like a Grateful Friend Concert
: )) To all my friends, I am the soundman for LA's Grateful Dead Music Tribute Band "Cubensis" www.cubensis.com Stop by and see us if your around or gather your friends and invite us over your way. Either way we'll see ya at the next show : ))
Peace Johnnycable
