    Hm, I see what you mean
    I think since most of us have our pages broken up so we're not seeing posts from 2010 and the formatting thereof, it's not such an issue, but I also think that since this topic has been running for three years it's about time to roll the darn thing into a new version anyway. Stay tuned.

    Thank you, marye
    You're right. I had my options set at 300 posts per page, changed it to 10, and now it looks fine. Thanks again.

    I think it's just you
    although it may be a function of how many posts you're choosing to display on a page. I'll go take a look at cc's post of 9/30/2010 and see if anything's odd.

    Hey, is it just me, or does this page not display correctly? The post boxes seem much narrower here than in other discussions. Did someone not close a < table > tag? < edit > It looks like all the posts since September 30, 2010 are nested as replies under c_c's post on that date.

    Gotta love LDS missionaries
    They are always young and enthusiastic and well dressed and educated. I like them better than Hare Krishnas or Jehovah's Witnesses, which I don't see around anymore. Moonies either. Ocho freaks are gone too. Ohh well, guess we're stuck LDSers and other minor cults. I don't mind giving them a drink and discussing their cosmology with them. Their version of world history is like a Disney movie! But, you know, whatever you want to believe. More freedom to you.

    Mormons, Lilly. Sorry about that. I'm partial to referring to them as LDS, since it somewhat dyslexically resembles one of my favorite acronyms. I thought about asking them about Romney and the Etch-A-Sketch uproar, but I was feeling pretty mellow at the time and didn't want to get into with them, politically.

    Last Night
    I live in the mountains of southern California and at dusk last night, Jupiter was visible just above the horizon, Venus was higher in the sky and the Moon hung above them both. I was standing out on my front porch taking it in when a couple of LDS missionaries walked up and asked me how I was doing. I told them that it was a good night to be pondering the infinite and when they tried to work that idea into the introduction of their spiel, I told them that the visible heavens were enough for me and wished them a fine evening.

May you be blowing away that harp where you are now and just know that you brought lots of us including me much joy. Norton and Roy Rogers used to come here every couple of years and play at a great small theater here, was always lots of fun. The Met in Spokane.

Everybody play nice! Actually, given the chat platform in use I don't think it's possible to add a multimedia stream. The other problems are that rendering that stream is a very "user's web browser" dependent thing, and that adding a large volume of continuous content might make the chatroom unusable for the bandwidth-impaired. Users looking for a shared simultaneous audio experience should agree on some other streaming source and run multiple browsers. Unless the site owners want to sink a lot of resources into totally re-engineering the chat platform... Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

While it would be nice to have that function, lets not forget that all formats have shortcomings. For instance, deadvids does not display the name of the video while playing, so if you don't tune in when it starts, you are left guesing what you are watching. Also, the XM GDradio station does not display where individual songs are culled from unless you are listening to a whole show. I guess what I am getting at is, it takes a lot of constant attention to get these things ro constistenly work right and there is just so much Mary to go around. I am happy she puts in the effort she does to accomodate all of our rants. All hale Ms. Eisenhart !!!!!!

I switched a few on to the Dead when I was in Russia last month. I tried to warn them that deadhead dudes might not be exactly what they were looking for. But they thought it was just my crazy English sense of humour. They simply would not believe that people in the richest country in the world would really chose to carry on like that ;-)

Russian brides-to-be dreaming of their prospective Deadhead husband. They lie in their beds at night and think "Ah to have that heavy scent of patchouli in my nostrils every day. Those long gorgeous dread-locks. Sigh! The thrill of the road from the back of a vw micro bus with shovels and rakes and impliments of de-struction, is what I sooooo long for. Am suprised you didn't have a herd of them following you home, Badger.********************************** Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.

More than 10 years ago a guy I knew married a lovely Russian girl whom he met when doing research in Siberia. It was definitely true love. He is a huge Pink Floyd fan, and days after they came to Britain to live, a very rare Pink Floyd show was announced in London. He bought the best tickets as a special treat for himself and his new bride. But she had hardly been to a rock show, let alone a Floyd extravaganza and the culture and sensory shock was just too much. Within a few minutes of the start she became totally terrified, by the tremendous noise, flashing lights, lasers, 3D crashing aeroplanes etc. She begged him to get her out of there. He pleaded with her to stay, it was so long since he had seen the Floyd. But it was no good, she was hysterical and they had to leave. He (and she) got over it ...eventually.. and they are still together :-)

Some of these spammer new users sound...intriguing. I was just thinking on my way to work this morning, "I wonder how I can get a list of inmates in the Iowa state prison system?" And now I know. This site is turning into a one-stop shopping place for just about ANYTHING! (Insert your own snarky comment about Rhino customer service here -- Marye excepted, of course).

I was listening to 9-28-72 the other day...and Dick's Picks 11 comes to mind.. You know, that Dark Star -> Cumberland is smoking...but other than that...i think i like the 28th Better.... Definately better Greatest STory Ever Told, if not the Best one ever..up there w/ 8-27-72 version... and THe NFA->GDTRFB->NFA... Jerry's first solo on GDTRFB is SMOKIN'.. and the Other One Package... hard to believe that Dick passed up the following night..or didn't make Both nights into the package... (I'm pretty sure DP 11 came out when Dick was still alive, right?? ) then, thats what brings this cool idea to mind.... If the people at Rhino are listening... You guys could do a Dick's Picks Revisited... and bring out like 10 volumes or so of stuff like this... 9-28-72 .. to compliment DP 11.. could have the logo at the top, Dick's Pick's Revisited..or Dick's Picks Resurrection.. and could bring out more killer shows based on what was released already... just a thought.. and, if anyone out there has not heard 9-28-72....i totally recommend you listen to it..there are good copies on Archive available....(hard to find the Truckin' Opener, at least the one i got doesnt include it)

I was thinking the other day...how i would love to have 'Virgin' mind again...before it was touched w/ GD music... and go back and be blown away again by their Music for the 1st Time!!! That's what i tell people that have never laid ears on their music!!! We were listening to Ramble On Rose the other night...my wife and I... and the verse where Jerry says, "I'm going to Take You to the Leader of a Band!"...everything around me turned into a Family Feud game.... and i looked over to my wife, slapped my hand on the desk, and said... "For 1,000,000 Dollars, Can You Name the Leader of a Band...Can You Name the Person I Am Thinking About. " she looked at me kynda weird.. then Jerry busted out a solo, and i screamed.... Mr. Garcia!

Wanna give thanks to the band members, including all the special guests, to the road crew who put so much hard work into making this happen, to the folks here at Dead.net for putting it on the Net for us, and also all the 'Heads that truly are there for the music and family!!! And the people behind putting out all these killer releases!!! 2009 had lots of killer music released - Winterland 77, To Terrapin, Roadtrips - (esp. the complete shows! 3.1 Rocks! ), the Jerry Band Releases, and many more i can't think of... The Spring Tour of 2009 was incredible. MSG, The SPectrum, The Gorge, to name a few... And Furthur!!! even if we didn't have Furthur, it was a perfect year. But to go beyond, really wanna give thanks to all the people making Furthur happen!!! I'm sure 2010 is going to be just as exciting if not more!!! I Can't Wait!!!

1. As a high school student, Jerry studied art at the California School of Fine Arts in North Beach on weekends and summer sessions. 2. Jerry's full name was Jerome John Garcia -- named after the great Broadway musical composer Jerome Kern. 3. Jerry was surrounded by music as a child: his mother listened to opera, his father was a professional musician, and when his family got together they would have sing-alongs 4. Jerry lost the middle finger of his right hand -- his brother accidentally chopped it off splitting wood. 5. His third grade teacher encouraged him to draw pictures, paint murals, and make ceramics. 6. Having asthma as a child, Jerry spent alot of his time reading in bed. 7. Jerry was an avid collector of comic books. 8. Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream named a flavor, "Cherry Garcia," after him -- the first ice cream named after a musical legend. 9. In Jerry's first gig, he won a contest and got to record a song. They chose Bill Doggett's "Raunchy." 10. Jerry enlisted in the Army at age 17, but was dishonorably discharged just nine months later. 11. Jerry's first paying gig came with his future songwriter, Bob Hunter. Named "Bob and Jerry," each earned $5.00. 12. Early in his life, Jerry was torn between music and art, but realized he couldn't concentrate on two art forms at once. He chose music, because he enjoyed the interaction and creativity of others working together. 13. Some of his early influences were Joan Baez and the New Lost City Ramblers; he incorporated and expanded their techniques to create his own artistry. 14. Garcia loved to play the five-string banjo, which inspired his to organize a bluegrass band in 1962 -- the Hart Valley Drifters, later called the Wildwood Boys. 15. In the spring of 1963, Jerry and Sarah Ruppenthal preformed as "Jerry and Sarah," playing acoustic music from the 1920's and 1930's. Later that year, Sarah became Jerry's first wife. 16. Jerry performed in several groups that only existed for a gig or two: the Thunder Mountain Tub Thumpers, the Sleepy Hollow Hog Stompers, the Wildwood Boys, and the Black Mountain Boys. 17. Garcia met Bob Weir & decided to assemble a jug band-Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions, featuring instruments such as the jug, washtub bass, harmonica, washboard and the kazoo. 18. Jerry and Mother McCree's took their music in a different direction. They started using electric instruments, and then changed the name of their group to the Warlocks. 19. Jerry didn't read musical notes; rather he improvised by playing by ear and by feel. 20. The Warlocks, realizing that there already was a band playing under that same name, decided to change it and came across the words Grateful Dead. 21. Jerry's dad, Jose Ramon Garcia, emigrated from Spain in 1919. 22. Jerry, along with the likes of Janis Joplin, became known as one of the originators of the "San Francisco Sound." 23. Garcia often would develop intense themes in the middle of songs, making this improvisational style of playing the Grateful Dead's trademark. 24. Garcia produced Jefferson Airplane's second album, Surrealistic Pillow, but only got credit as being a spiritual advisor. 25. Jerry earned the nickname "Captain Trips" because of his interest in LSD excursions. 26. Garcia's love for bluegrass and old-time music led him to form a number of side groups over the years while playing in the Grateful Dead. 27. Garcia was not happy with both his and the Dead's performance at Woodstock, calling it a disappointment. 28. Jerry started performing in a country-western band called the New Riders of the Purple Sage-the New Riders even opened for the Dead for a while. 29. Jerry loved to play several types of music, including folk, bluegrass, country, rock 'n' roll, reggae and acid rock. 30. Jerry played all the instruments except the drums for his first solo album, titled Garcia. 31. Jerry's second album was also titled Garcia, but later became known as Compliments of Garcia because there was a promotional sticker that read "Compliments of " on the cover. 32. The Jerry Garcia Band was his second longest-lived music group-the Grateful Dead was the first. 33. Having a strong passion for the visual aspect of art, Jerry helped create The Grateful Dead Movie, working on the soundtrack and editing. 34. Jerry's second wife, Carolyn Adams, was nicknamed Mountain Girl. 35. Born on August 1, 1942, Jerry was his parents' second and final child. 36. Garcia was selected as the Bay Area Musician of the Year in 1980 through readers' poll in Bay Area Music Magazine. 37. Jerry collaborated with the members of Saturday Night Live and developed skits around Grateful Dead Folklore, including a bit entitled "Jerry's Kids." 38. Garcia helped to set up a foundation t help support various charities, the Rex Foundation, which made contributions to numerous social and environmental causes in need. 39. Garcia was once given an ultimatum by the Grateful Dead-to choose between the band and drugs. 40. Jerry's gaining weight led to an inspired slogan amongst fans, "It's not over until the fat man rocks." 41. Jerry had a strong liking to red and black t-shirts. 42. Jerry had been a fan of Bob Dylan, and had covered many of Dylan's songs with both the Jerry Garcia Band and the Grateful Dead. 43. Jerry's first commercial was a 30 second radio advertisement for Levi's 501 jeans -- fittingly, a San Francisco-based company. 44. Garcia won awards for Musician of the Year and Best Guitarist in 1988 at the Bay Area Music Awards. 45. Jerry was a strong environmental activist -- the album Blues from the Rainforest was a project he worked on to help create awareness for the diminishing rainforests. 46. While recovering from a diabetic coma in 1986, Garcia received over 65,000 calls on the Grateful Dead Hotline. 47. Jerry's oldest daughter, Heather, became a first chair violinist for the Redwood Symphony. 48. Jerry had his first art exhibit in 1991 at the Weir Gallery in Berkley, California -- prices for these works of art ranged from $300-$40,000. 49. Jerry published a book of his artwork entitled "J. Garcia: Paintings, Drawings, and Sketches." 50. A tie maker was impressed with his artwork and began the production of J. Garcia Art in neckwear. 51. Garcia put out more than 30 albums with the Grateful Dead, the Jerry Garcia Band, and as a solo performer. 52. Jerry supervised and approved a comic book of the Dead -- Grateful Dead Comix, which featured interpretations of songs and band members as characters. 53. Garcia developed his fondness for country music while listening to the Grand Ole Opry radio broadcasts with his grandmother. 54. "Touch of Grey" was both Jerry's and the Grateful Deads only Top Ten hit. 55. Jerry would often smoke as many as three packs of cigarettes a day. 56. Jerry received his first guitar at the age of fifteen. 57. While on a fishing trip in 1948, Jerry saw his father swept away to his death in a California river. 58. Jerry believed his life began after a 1960 auto accident in which a close, talented friend of his died. 59. Jerry's first idol on the guitar was Chuck Berry. 60. The science fiction writer, Ray Bradbury, was Jerry's favorite author. 61. His first guitar was a Danelectro electric with a tiny Fender amplifier. 62. After his relief from the Army, Jerry studied painting at the Art Institute in San Francisco. 63. Garcia held a job as a music teacher at Dana Morgan's Music. 64. Jerry died of a heart attack on August 9,1995, eight days after his 53rd birthday. 65. Jerry's last recording was a cover of Jimmie Rogers' "Blue Yodel #9." 66. Four months after Jerry's death, in December 1995, the remaining band members stated that they would never preform again as the Grateful Dead. 67. Jerry sang the national anthem for the San Francisco Giants along with Bob Weir and Vince Welnick on opening day in 1993. 68. Jerry did music and sound effects for the movie Invasion of the Body Snatchers. 69. Sting the lead singer from the rock group Police, called Garcia "Father Christmas." 70. Jerry and the Dead played before more people and played more years than any other music combo in history. 71. Vice president Al Gore gave Garcia a personal tour of the White House. 72. One of Jerry's favorite pastimes was scuba diving. 73. Jerry has four children, all daughters. 74. Jerry played lead guitar and sang vocals for the Grateful Dead. 75. The Warlocks name was taken from an Egyptian prayer Garcia discovered in a dictionary. 76. Jerry's parents owned a bar in San Francisco -- The Four Hundred Club, named for its location, 400 First St. 77. Jerry earned three merit badges in the Boy Scouts: for knot tying, compass reading, and life-saving. 78. Tiff was the nickname Jerry called his older brother Clifford. 79. Jerry was court-martialed twice while in the Army. 80. Jerry's mother, Ruth Garcia, was a registered nurse. 81. Jerry played several instruments including the saxophone, piano, banjo and guitar. 82. One of Jerry's first jobs was picking apricots and beans in a local field. 83. One person Jerry wanted to play with was the legendary Bill Monroe, but he never got the chance. 84. Jerry's mother really wanted Jerry to be a girl. She already had one boy and wanted a daughter. 85. Garcia became a regular on the radio broadcast of The Midnight Special a folk music show in Berkley, California. 86. Jerry had built up a repertoire of bluegrass tunes, ballads, mountain tunes, rags, and country blues that he performed on the five-string banjo. 87. After seeing the Beatles film A Hard Day's Night, Jerry was inspired to transform his jug band into a rock band. 88. The first gig for the Warlocks was at Magoo's Pizza Parlor. 89. Jerry would practice at any location he could find, sometimes up to ten hours a day. 90. Jerry's close friend Ken Kesey wrote the novel One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. 91. Jerry got his first piece of national press in Sing Out magazine. 92. In 1966, the first Grateful Dead record was released -- a 45 of "Stealin'." On the flip side was "Don't Ease Me In." 93. In 1989 Garcia testified about the plight of the rainforests at the Congressional Human Rights Caucus. 94. Garcia was a fan of surreal art; some of his influences were Max Ernst and Paul Klee. 95. The album Deadicated, which featured various bands covering Grateful Dead tunes, was a tribute to a long time song-writing team of Jerry Garcia and Bob Hunter. 96. At a sold out show on Garcia's 50th birthday, a fan distributed paper masks with Garcia's face and the crowed attempted to sing "Happy Birthday." 97. Jerry married his third wife, Deborah Koons, on Valentines Day, 1994. 98. Jerry considered himself one of the best banjo players in America. 99. Half of Jerry's remains were scattered in the Ganges River in India, a country Jerry had never visited. The second half of Jerry's remains were scattered beneath the Golden Gate Bridge.
