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!

Wasn't the mothership George Clinton??
Seems like you're taking the band a wee bit to personally DannyC.

What in the heck are you guys doing? Holding benefits for Obama.(In 2009) Ya lost me there. I mean really, Bobby, Phil, ya really lost me there. I can't figure out what you guys are doing. What in the world are you guys talking about. I don't even think you guys know what your doing. You guys obviously don't know what your doing. Ok Dark Star. Got that part. You guys let me down time and time again. You can bash me, go ahead. I'm used to it, You guys treat me pretty crappy when I used to go to shows and hang around you anyway. And I'm one of the people that used to put a bunch of energy into the shows. Its not even worth going to shows and putting any energy into it because why should I? I get treated like crap, by a bunch of people that don't know me and think they know better than me. After the Obama benefits, its like, wow, I don't really have anything in common with you guys anyway. So, I broke off from the mothership. Bye. Whew, well I feel better now, just like I always do for myself.As usual.

That's right...Nebraska.
My older brother brought The Grateful Dead home from his freshman year of college in 1985.
The very first time I heard St. Stephen off 'The Best Of..' that summer, I was toast.
Saw my first show at Alpine in July of 1989.
Saw my last show at the Silver Bowl in May of 1995.
Made it to roughly 60 shows during those blissful 6 years.
I miss Jerry...a lot.
Thanks for having me.

Hello - glad to have found you - I got to see a few shows in the late '80s - very special - thankful for the experience - Hope to make some friends, and participate in the community.

Love the dancing - or loved it at any rate - don't get to dance so much these days...

Grateful to be part of this

Hi all. I'm Mark and I found the Dead I Jr. High. I borrowed my buddies dads workings man dead tape and was hooked. I started going to shows in 93 or 94 and my love grew for the music and community. I'm married to a beautiful wife and we have two boys four and six. I can't wait to bring the kids to a show they love the music already.

Groovy being here, an to think we didn't know it existed ?

Well me and Michele have been Deadheads forever and a day....I think. I learned of and about the Dead in 1984, while Michele was jamming to the Dead around 1979. Unlike life the experience of the Dead and every show was like a rebirth and birth of our senses and spiritually explosive.
