    Hi! I am trying to ask for…

    Hi! I am trying to ask for permission to use a line from Scarlet Begonias in my book to be published. Do you have any advice on who I need to contact to do so?

    Hey there Y'all -
    My Daughter was sorting through my records lately and found two unusual records (seem to be from a radio broadcast in 1981 on the NBC young adults network). If these are of value to the archive I would be glad to send them to the right person.
    Thanks

    Is the old site still running? There is still guest access and it looks like there are recent posts, but requests to reset my password go unanswered.

    Aoxomoxoa

    I remember hearing from someone in the band (Phil? Bob? Jerry?) that one of the songs on Aoxomoxoa was an experimental type of song, where the main voice was actually a mix of the entire GD sound. I don't remember anything else. Can anyone help me out here?

Its a new incentive scheme.The more you post, the more shows you went to, the cooler you appear. The next incentive scheme will be to deduct one year from our ages for every 10 posts!

that feature still isn't working just exactly perfect, as I noticed over the weekend it had me attending 1253 shows, to which I can only say, I wish.

How do I go to Shows and Songs to list the number of shows that I have been to?

on the right hand side of the Shows and Lyrics page (http://www.dead.net/showsandlyrics) you can look at shows by year, venue, etc. Each show's page has a little clickbox that says Mark as Attended. Click that, and you'll be marked as having attended that show. My problem is that after about 1990 it's all a blur and i wish i'd kept better records!

I wasn't around when these decisions were made, and generally speaking I don't have a technical clue beyond basic html anyway, but I think for the moment Drupal is the hand we're dealt and the world in which we're operating. Though I will pass along your recommendation!

No big deal, I've been told that the vbulletin is easier than HTML, but still has hard corners with . Plus there is a vb language. I've been in the many different Subaru community forums for roughly 10 years plus. Never been an administrator or nothing tho. I have my own website, and I hate HTML! Sorry, only if alignments were easier I wouldn't complain! I use a WYSIWYG editor anyways so I keep it simple. Thanks for your hard work!!!

Frankly asked that very question elsewhere a few days ago. On someone else's page you can send them a message or block messages from them. Basically it makes no sense to have a send private message to yourself link so there isn't one, but logically, blocking messages from yourself, which you CAN do, makes no more sense. So if we learn anything about that oddity we'll report back.

It's been a while since I last logged into the forum here but regularly check the sight for any new news. Seems now should be the time for the next CD or DVD release. Any news or are we stuck having to wait several months with nothing new offered up? Road Trips was nice but it took an eternity to be released. Without a doubt, there are many live multi-track tapes, matrix/board mixes and video footage of shows to be able to release them quarterly at the very least for many many years to come. Anything new?

I have a question....Was anyone at the 1st show at the JFK in Philly 76 with Yes,Peter Framton and Gary wright!! Do you remember the food fight?? One fifty thousand people throwing something at the same time. It was the biggest food fight ever!! My friend and I were on the field and hid under a blanket ( no help) I was hit with a frisbee in the head, then a whole water melon smashed right in front of us!! Holy shit, we peeked out from the blanket and saw sandwiches flying, coolers and beers in flight!! It would be cool to see a you tube of this!! It was insane!!!!!!!! Just wondering if anyone was there too!!

hi .no i was not at this show..but i was in 1977 at another show.it was in germany and the band was not GD but the jefferson starship.should have been the first gig on the european continent since 68.it could have been the greatest outdoor venue i ever went too.the party began the day before,went on allnite long and than everybody went to see Grace and the boys.the vibes where great,until the moment when bill thompson together with craig declared that the concert was over because gracie was drunk so she could not even move.in that moment pure hell broke loose,and believe me there were no frisbees and watermelons launched.there where fewer people (15000) but the stuff thrown was definitely heavier and harder.I really feared for my live...all the starships equipment was destroyed,burned or looted.so was the site.i think they never recovered from that blow:-((..and all because off a bottle at the wrong time in the wrong hands!!!still love this band anyway and everytime i listen to grace,chills go down my spine....peace fellas and stay sober

Not sure what the protocol is here. The Warfield 10/9/80 Vine seems to have died. It was sent to GratefulGooner on Feb 27 and nobody's seen or heard from him since. We have his address, but his phone is unlisted. I don't want to trash the guy, if he has a good excuse & is Planning on getting the vine back on track, but how long is too long? When do we tag him with the moniker Vinekiller?

Who knows what is up? Maybe illness etc., there have been some pretty good viners here that disappeared for a while and then come back. Vinekiller moniker may be premature Someone could restart the vine. If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. William Blake

No idea if this is the proper forum...i received Winterland and was so looking forward to listening to it on my laptop.but when i inserted it into the drive, it spinned a couple times and that's it. tried opening it with itunes, winamp, wmp, and EAC - all with the same results. it plays fine in my car and my work laptop. i thought it had to do with HDCD, but then i put in 'stepping out', also HDCD, and that played fine. i'm able to burn, rip, and liste to other cd's. any help would make feel loved. thanks

How come you guys don't have The Schwag listed on your site in the "other bands" section? They keep the vibe alive and turn on more people to your music than anyone. I thought the dead were gothic before I went to this little festival in the woods called "Schwagstock" and my life changed. I am not alone. Deadheads need to catch one of their shows/festivals. JGB with Melvin Seals play there occasionally.

It's possible you have defective discs; mine play fine in iTunes so that's my first guess, but I'm no tech expert. Especially in Windows. I'll pass this along to the tech folks and see if they have any thoughts, and one of us will get back to you. Sorry for the hassle.

I apologize if this is the wrong thread to ask this in, but does anybody know what's up with the official Jerry site? It seems to be pretty much abandoned these days. No new DVD or CD releases whatsoever. In fact, there's nothing new at all on that site. I think it shows an enormous amount of disrespect to Jerry to do nothing with that site and the huge catalog of his music that's sitting in the vault. Anybody have any ideas?

Hey Now! I, too cannot seem to find a link to put the new Egypt '78 shows in my cart. I want to pre-order to get the bonus disc. Please don't screw me on this! I use the search function and it takes me to a story about the new sets but there is no link to the product. FRUSTRATING! Any help would be bueno. Come on without, come on within!

Not happening yet. Happening: many technical issues due to server migration, making me very happy that there aren't errant preorders adding to the confusion. This should all get straightened out pretty shortly, more as it happens. Thank you and sorry.
