    nice little spot on the web
    Hey, here is a great little project to support. https://deadheadstories.org/ Cool concept, righteous folks, remembering the past, honoring the present and paying it forward. They are like minded ladies and gents who got creative and put together something real nice...2500 stories so far, with maybe ten percent or so going into the first book. All volunteer, all proceeds go to seed Rex, Seva and like minded foundations. If you have an extra buck or three, feel free to donate to their non-profit. If you're brave or curious or want a cool read this fall or a great present for later, spring for a book. If your ship came in, and the cargo is wearing you down, perhaps a small donation to lighten your load would be appropriate. All good and pretty amazing, just like SD'ers everywhere... Cheers,cya down the road g

    cool
    some friends introduced me to some JRAD videos a while back; those guys are pretty great. I did love the Sunday Dead & Co show. REALLY loved Branford, as always.

    Would it offend anyone if I said that there were other musical acts at Lockn that I enjoyed more than DeadCo ? Part was just novelty (Turkuaz and Pigeons etc were all new to me); part was style (I have been a true funk soldier in Uncle Jam's army about as long as I have been a Head); I had hoped that the time with the Meters and the general atmosphere would have brought out a funkier Dead, particularly on Big O's side; part was that night one of the Dead seemed like a Christmas sermon, more for the occasional visitor than for regulars. Kind of tried and true material. Add the bar was set very high for guitar playing after 2 nights of Derek Trucks (what did that guitar ever do to him?); Joe Russo, Blackbyrd McKnight, and the dude who played Zeppelin covers for Umphrey. But also we bailed before the "third set" with Lettuce that went on to the wee hours; so we missed something that maybe they held back. We also kept in the back of our minds what John M had said in his "Tales" interview beforehand: it you don't "get" Night One of a two-nighter, just stay tuned. Second night was awesome, opening like a second set would: meandering and easing into Playin'. The graphics and imagery were a treat. And US Blues is back in a big way. The event itself was a smash hit. This was our first festival and we were delighted by the logistics and the crowd. 30,000 friends and neighbors for 3 nights and we never so much as heard one person raise their voice at another. You know our Love will NOT FADE AWAY. PS I had been agnostic on JRAD until we heard them midnight Friday. Wow. More oriented to the future than the past.

    because it was really, really nice to be in my own bed instead of slogging across the parking lot with a long drive to come when the music stopped. You youngsters have fun out there!

    Hey now SSDDers! I trust everyone's been soaking up plenty of summertime Dead & Company (in person or vicariously á la couch). Sounds like Geo's got the bus warming up. Less than twelve days til I saddle up the palomino and head out to Albuquerque for the final leg of 2018's Summer Tour. Anybody else going to be at Albuquerque? What about the Boulder shows? . . . In the meantime, looking forward to listening to the west coast run starting tonight. Onward!

The bus came by. We got on. That's how it all began. Almost as soon as the Fare Thee Well shows were announced, folks started planning to meet in Chicago. They met. They connected. Things were never the same. And now, further! Or maybe Furthur.

Can't believe it's been over two years since Sunshine Daydreamers started hopping on this bus! What a long strange trip it's been! Onward indeed! LikeToHike's got my vote for new bus driver. Look forward to more white-knuckled, free-wheeling, cryptic, sleight-of-hands bus trips through the cosmos. (I know I've already said) ONWARD!

To coin a phrase. When my nephew was recounting his adventures in the pit at Wrigley (a month ago already?), he was talking about the time between Scarlet and Fire. Lacking better terminology, he said, “We were in the caret”, as in the > symbol used in setlists. I know all of you have been “in the caret” at some point.

Liketohike, Liketobrivebadus, and liketosmile, We be celebrating the past, honoring the present and anticipating the future, as all of it makes up the magic carpet we find ourselves on. So many ways to communicate, so many ways to share, so many ways to smile. Good to see you and you and you on board...pets, parts, and participles, the rising sun being blue, the sky a vivid yellow, ba dus crammed with laughter and song...and donuts, always those pesky donuts and coffee too. Got a spot for all...we miss Jerry but remember his smile. Destinations unknown by some, imagined by others, and a planned by those whose wheel stopped revolving long enough to score tickets. All share in the journey, all welcome aboard. Know that these wheels slow down for caret crossings, stop on a diner's dime, and have been known to circle back as needed. Price of admission is a hoot and a holler, or a flashing peace sign and smile. So pay at the door, pay it forward, put it on the tab, it don't matter a bit. Your seat is reserved always and forever. Allllll aboarrrrrddddd!!!

Was a good show on a fine tour but, outside on the road the police were on the hunt for heads, fortunately I left late in my '70 VW camper, but we saw so many folks pulled over it was sick, it was one of two years in a row they pulled that crap, so bad the Dead's newsletter that came with mail order tickets warned of the situation. We are headed to the show, hopefully no presence after....... Happy Birthday wishes to Ms. Mkav and also to a certain retired Dus Briver......

So at the Burgettstown show this June, whatever lot we parked in, the local 5-0 had drug sniffing Rin Tin Tins, we were tailgating and minding our own business, this Narc comes by with Lassie who starts sniffing me n my buddies. Well all we had was in the closed car, they proceeded to the hippies to our left, a sweet lady and her friends. Said dog sniffed her, whimpered, cop asks her to empty her pockets, she pulls out a lighter, bones and a bag of herbage. He grabs her, cuffs her and takes her away. Ain't that a fucking shame. Hey Boo Boo, thanks for remembering! 7-12-89 was indeed a great show.... Hey Sarge, no more Vicodin!

Thanks to your heads up regarding the situation at Burgettstown we avoided the heat, but they sure did have a strong presence cuffed and dragged away for a few bones, WTF and all the real criminals are wearing white shirts and suit coats.... and we can't forget birthday wishes and thoughts for the one we miss........ Dereck and the Dominos released on vinyl today and Jerry's Reflections as well

It certainly is...dis dus stops on a dime...as Geo has pointed out, and it's known to circle back to pick up those we may have missed. Climb aboard and take a seat...Hey Sarge...pass the bone to Kurt Dawg...and keep em comin'. Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends, we're so glad you could attend...come inside, come inside...

Hey Now Marye - we took the plunge today. It's nearly sold out too, in less than 1/2 a day. Only unanswered question is the show dates (three shows over four days). Doesn't matter...we're stoked for 6 days and 5 nights of intimate Dead, on-the-beach. Should be pretty cool. Any SD'ers bringing their flip-flops?

I am putting finishing touches on a presentation about the Dead phenomenon, and realized I have never seen an estimate of the number of Dead Heads that exist. Has anyone seen anyone try to SWAG this?

Tom the answer is n+1, where n = the number of deadheads If it's a multiple choice, pick B for Bertha....

interesting question...what do you define as deadhead? i know plenty of people who like the dead, have more than a passing knowledge of the dead's work, and may have even been to a few shows, but probably would not consider themselves "deadheads". Would you, for this purpose?

I feel ya, mkav. Maybe its like a weighted FTE measure to account for people who are Dead-curious. The alternative, strict, way to go is to say, you are a Head when you are ready to declare that as an identity. And thanks Rich for, well, you know, being ... rrrgrr But the simple questions is, does an estimate exist? it should be a census category. But I now believe we're now off the endangered list.

Valid point Tom. How about this... will anyone who is a deadhead please raise your hand.... now all you have to do is count them.
