I saw the addition in the 'we are the world' (ouch) section.
I don't even know if we having something like this here, but how about a discussion of the meanings of songs? while Dodd's work pretty much does this, (and does it damn well!) I think he basically deals with songs written by the band and/or Hunter or Barlow... (not sure)
anyways, in the game show, I went off on a tangent about the meaning of Iko Iko and Dougles added to that, so it would be nice to have a space to talk about the meanings of songs. on the old dead.net there were a few pretty cool discussions going about Loser and Jack Straw; maybe a few others...

Just didn't have time to start all those topics over the holiday. Back in a bit.
why not include South America, Central America, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Australia??
we are everywhere!
as I move around quite a bit, it would always be cool to meet up with heads in various places.
here's leadbelly27's Essential Shows topic....
What about a thread for us in Europe? To compare tips about interesting concerts (if there IS such a thing) for Deadheads here, or to moan about the lack of people who have even HEARD of the Dead over here, or to discuss how sad it is that we can not see any of these great concerts that you guys are talking about, or just so we fee somewhat less isolated. Was just an idea, Americans welcome too, of course, but would save through wading through other longer threads to find interesting and more local information.
Will any of the Dead be performing at the 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love concert on September 2nd at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco?
SirX, we've had a pets topic all along, my friend!
you've already greenlighted one of my topics. i think the world of that. lets face it - we all have pets with names that are a part of our lives, especially with the "dead". would it be possible to post a "pets" section? seriously, it would be cute. just think about it....take care chris. i make the motion first for my kitty that's dead now - her name was stella blue.
Okay, tee-vee watchers. have at.
