and what a tasty start to our new 30 Days, though i did have to go all over the world for this one (in between the housework & dog walking). think i'll make Nov 1 a day off work every year. a true Deadhead holiday.
fyi folks, typing the date in works fine, ignore the calendar.
David and all responsible, thank you indeed for this real good time.
Almost slipped in the dark trying to find this one. It's hunting' season again, and you don't even have to bag a buck. Here's to giving thanks daily, and wishin' y'all a real good time from the Green Mountain state.
Seriously, how far low-class are you going to take this each year ??
Which Richfield Coliseum is the correct answer if you play a Richfield song ?
Coliseum, Richfield, or Richfield Coliseum, Richfield ???
Have some respect for the people that continue to want to participate in this.
Most of those people buy a fair amount of merchandise every year. The 30 days is progressively next-to-impossible to win, given the absurd need to stump almost everyone with at least one show that never appeared in Deadbase, or some studio outtake.
The prize(s) are next to nil.
Stop dumping on the loyal.
( edited afterward ) ....my original point being there IS NO Pittsburg PA ( without the h, separate from Pittsburgh )
I don't think they are picking the winner based on the exact naming of the venue.
They are most likely picking the winner based on guessing the date.
They may have the name of the particular venue printed a certain way when they give the answer a day later but that does not necessarily mean the name is "right" or "wrong".
If you guess the date right and choose from the various spellings/wordings of the venue in question I bet you are in the running to win. And they pick one winner from the many many that get the date right and choose the venue of the performance in question regardless of the exact wording of the venue.
Agreed. Love the Dead, but it's quite clear....money, money is the show now. The iceberg was melting, but with super-duper limited releases...making it that if you don't fork over the money really quick, you might get lucky and see the release on eBay for 500 times the cost. Happy with the annual DoD stuff. Stopped trying to win a few years back. Guess on my own, and smile (while I'm listening).
