    Cataloging Your Music Collection

    I'm lazy. I've been considering this for a couple years and am ready to get serious (which is about par for the course on my action curve!). So, I sat down to Discogs this past weekend. Umm. I started with the Dead and made it through '70 before my first scream; by December '72 I was disoriented to person, place, and time. Hours later I woke in a cold sweat realizing that it would take me 6.2 years to complete my collection.

    Consequently, I'd love to know what you're using. I discovered an endorsement for Collecterz on SHF, and after doing a bit of reading and watching a few video tutorials, it looks really promising - I love the UPC scanner function and the ability to ID a release by putting the disc in the player. Anyone used this, either in download or cloudbased format? If you use something else, let me hear about it: the good, bad, and ugly! Thanks/K

    Perhaps the more enduring value of my previous post...

    ...would be an introduction to the "new release" thread on the IMWAN website to those who aren't familiar, which allowed me to effectively consolidate my regular internet searches for prospective new line-item debits on my credit card...

    http://www.imwan.com/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=15&sid=03ab1c6d0cab22fae70e…

    It doesn't catch everything, but it's consistently proven more comprehensive for rock-related releases than any other single source I've yet found.

    Edit: anyone else been really digging Fear Inoculum since release? It was my intro to Tool and I've since scooped up the (admittedly limited) catalogue...remarkable stuff.

    a happy occasion: some (more) late era live

    The final decade shows in 30T were its greatest surprise, as was the epic 91 show in the Giant's Stadium box; plus that download series show from Pine Knob - fantastic stuff! So this live recreation of a proposed late-career studio effort - that clearly wasn't going to happen given that it took LG's herculean effort to keep the boys focused nearly 20 yrs earlier for Terrapin - is highly anticipated in my consumer demographic of one!

    Meet Up Black Out

    Having reported in elsewhere, Aussie viewers have stated that the box reveal isn't a universal component of the 7pm local shows worldwide. I wonder in which time zone it'll kick in?

    Edit: Well that quickly became moot. What a smashing day to be a Head with an expendable $160! I note that my confirmed order hit the in-box 38 minutes before the official email announcement.

    Box Set: res ipsa loquitur (perhaps?)

    DV - I don't know. Later years open the possibility to multi-media releases, which apparently serve the multitude well, but I only managed half a show of the old "So Many Roads" box before shelving it … I simply can't watch my music (unless its live, of course). That said, it occurred to me that many might simply be playing DVD & Blu-ray releases through speakers w/out video; Summer & Fall '91 are sufficiently special that I'd bite and purchase a new player to shelve above my current CD & TT outfit. For ideas, I'd love to hear how people are playing audio only w/ A/V media. Lord, I've got stacks of DVDs & B-R discs purchased w/ expanded album editions that I've never touched: the Stones, the Tull reissues, et al.

    Edit: Wouldn't it be grand if the PNW blueprint were used for a small-to-mid sized box that contemplated multiple years or tours circa '91? As I've said before, the single greatest personal revelation from 30T was the '91 - '95 contingent of shows; I didn't see those coming (esp. Salt Lake City...wow!).

    So, are we thinking this is going to be a 91 box? How many shows do think we will get?

    Thanks for the info.

I found my 2005 Official Grateful Dead Calendar. I hung it on the month of June. It is awesome. The Executive Editor was Mickey Hart and it was by Grateful Dead Productions The border is -as wonderful as it's contents. And those... arms and... He would get my vote. With just so much more too! Grateful Good, cheers, xo.

These are notes from a dear friend and blind Dr. of Psych. Being blind made him greater in his chosen field as he was unable to judge anyone by appearance. He had a vastness in his ability to utilize other options and harness the words and patterns of an individual. Leading to the most endearing and viable help in the circumstances of the mind. He is an inspiration to me during these hard times I am in. Thought I'd sher what at once I found and now is forever mine. Roger's believed personality is controlled subjectively - self concept is a continuous representation. Today, I attempt to mentally assess the death of my Father. And integrate, discard, discover, unveil all my new truths. And to get back trucking on...even if I need tomorrow too. Maybe the next day...I don't know. Roger's thought Image Creation was Criteria-Related. You must affect the way you feel. Your positive growth drive - tells you what is good for you by the way it feels.

I tryed to post this in the poitive vibes forum but it was locked anywhooo....I just want to send out hugs to everyone who kept in touch with me over the past few months. Just in case you are keeping tabs. Last year i found out my wife was cheating on me and i was laid offf also we have two small children. Lets just say my world came tumbling down and push me into a real dark corner. There were a few brothers and sisters who kept sending me p.m.'s sharing thier simular struggles. I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. There where times when your letters caused the tears of cleansing to flow. I have finally realized that the light at the end of the tunnel is not a speeding train. Yes it sucks going to court fighting for my children but we will get through this. And of course i still have some bad days but those are getting fewer and farther between. HUGS TO ALL AND TO ALL POSITIVE VIBES

I'm taking my binoculars, fly rod, and an empty cooler out to tour parts of the northeast in 2 weeks, 5/5-11. From Rochester NY, I'll check out Cooperstown, NY; Portland, Maine; Bar Harbor, Maine and Burlington,Vermont. Anyone have knowledge of birding locations and brewpub suggestions? I'd be willing to meet any 'heads along the way. Maybe the cool weather will warm up?

not that this has anything to do with anything, but this morning I woke up at 1:30 am to a pack of coyotes howling, barking and yipping about 20ft from my bedroom window which I left open for some nice night air. Seriously cool thing to hear at night from a long distance; seriously freaky though when they're so close you can hear them rustling in the leaves and so dark you can't even see them. It's my understanding they "sound off" together when they've caught something ( not entirely sure though). Just glad it was'nt me ifn that's the case. Ma nature vewwy scawwy sometimes.

to one Mr. Nicholas Sand. Phenomenal underground chemist in the lineage of Owsley and Scully. Most folks know about Owsley and some about Scully but Nick was the intrepid alchemist who kept it going from '66 to '96. Dedicating himself for 30 yrs. to lovingly produce high purity psychedelics up until his second and final arrest in 1996. Virtually anyone who enjoyed lsd from '66 to '96 can thank Mr. Sand, including his and Scully's infamous original "orange sunshine". Much can be found online about this incredibly humble and gentle retired alchemist. Nick turned 72 on 5/10/13. One person really can make a difference. :))))))))

heard this on NPR and had to pass it on. Since all of us are familiar with the sound levels of a concert, the polar opposite has some interest: "the quietest place on earth" , as rated by Guiness Book of World Records, is in a building in Minneapolis, MN. Eckel Noise Control Technologies (they're online and you can read about how this room was built and see pics of it) has an "anechoic chamber" built in it's Orfield Labs facility that has a decibel rating of -9.4 dBA. - almost 10 times quieter than zero decibels. So quiet that the reporter said he could "hear his scalp move across his forehead when he frowned". The company has hosted a contest to see who can stay in this room, in complete darkness, the longest. Many people have tried and, so far, the winner was a journalist who stayed in the room in complete darkness for 45 min. before he began hallucinating and couldn't take it anymore :) Time for a deadhead to break that record :))))))))

I spent a few minutes inside one at Owens Corning. The total lack of reflected sound is really unsettling -- the guy touring us related that some people get nauseous in the chamber because auditory cues play a role in balance, or something like that (honestly, I had a hard time hearing what he was saying even though he was standing next to me: my ears felt like they were stuffed with cotton). Then they took us into a reverb chamber. If you clap your hands you can still hear the sound for 6 or 7 seconds after the clap. Yikes!

Yesterday, for sport, as I was in a populated public space I asked children and young adults to 21 if they knew what POW MIA Prisoners of War and Missing in Action meant and from about 6 hours of surveying I had not found one that did. I told them to go find out and never forget. How was this possible, how was this truth? One must fathom it. I worked yesterday in their honor and memory. I did teach so many as I couldn't resist to sher what to me, was such a beautiful gift. ATTENTION!

Well, well, well... I tried another go at it and low and behold I hit the JACKPOT! Yesterday was a sweet remembrance and a proud occurrence that stands alone in National Holidays. I was with mostly Veterans, and the Elderly with the void of war a revolving story line that's impossible to stop or change. A few youngin's helped ease the concern of the others with their smiles shining that they had pleased me tremendously knowing what others had not. POW MIA So Loved are You, All, xo.

scroll down to "Grateful Dead" and enjoy some fantastic black and white photos from two '91 Northern California concerts - one GD and one JGB. I love the pic of the super happy baby on the girl's hip - 3rd pic down from the left - and the dancing and the smiles and the hugs and the love - that incredible GD love.......sighhhh. If I could just reverse time....

I had lunch in a dandelion snow; it was precious and rare. I didn't have to blow one dandelion for this delightful stream of seeds. Then, I was looking forward to a day that to me was the last day I ever knew. Are you ready?

I spent the 4th of July weekend in the Stanley, Idaho area. Made it up to Sawtooth Lake and yesterday summited 10,751 ft. Thompson Peak, the highest peak in the Sawtooth range with my hiking buddy Sheela, a 14-month old Black Lab mix. Also stopped in at Jerry's Country Store in Stanley. What a beautiful part of America. Best wishes to all !What will I see What will I learn On this river of no return ?

all of August, but peaking in the early morning hours of 8/11, 12, and 13 especially in the northeastern sky. Can average 50 - 100 meteors/hr. shortly before dawn. Hawaiian islands and the west coast will have special viewing privileges this year as far as intensity goes. Lots of chances to make your wishes...who knows where they'll go :))))))))))))))

has anyone heard of the winning final ingredient for the Dogfish Head "American Beauty" contest from back in Dec. of last year? I emailed the company but haven't received a response yet. Checked their website under "collaborations" and couldn't find anything there either. Just curious.

And so there we were... The Moon and the Sun came and went for hundreds of days, again. It served as proof that somethings never change... like my Grand and Festive Supplications, xo's! In remembering... (with awesome appreciation)all the blessings and miracles it has brought forth my way. My grateful heart and soul rejoices. In observing my wonderful and yet so profound list of gifts there as read between the lines there was Bob Weir and a great many others indeed, I pondered that last night after I finished my work. Since 10:16:01 pm struck the clock he had given so many, so many so much. It had indeed seen me though, and rested my weary soul, for free. Darkest hour stuff. I went to kneel in the place I always do. In sweet supplication, I told Jesus I would try and and show him, so many things the things, Bobby had done. My thoughts were rapid in succession and quite a task, to be sure. Through the looking glass in my Eyes; I saw the best of so many shining like stars in sky. I saw inspiration and it indeed, moved me brightly, xo. I saw messages scrolling in dear.. lovingkindness, the lion and lamb; there for the show. I saw a crowded room filled with nothing but joy as I saw alone filled with my own. I saw a grave keeping time as waters hugged the river's side. I saw Jesus smile at me; as held my broken-heart in my hand now patched with bandaids from all over the land. I heard the love of so many- again and again... sher'd perfectly, so on the mend, xo. I saw Bob's smile from a peaceful trance chatting with others in a maliceless stance. I called upon My Jesus to ask a blessing; for the one and only... Mr. Bob Weir! I said unto him in my Spirit that I loved a year of 10:16:01, it had the ticket to take care of 1 second everyday. And it was with awesome appreciation, I thanked him. Now! Now may ask a minute for him... A whole sixty seconds for rapture, excellence, Rock-n-Roll, guitars, friendship and freedom 6 items to truly bless everyone. A minute at 10:47 PM with the time between 10:16:01 and then a dedicated time in which to- "GET RIGHT", yeah, yeah, yeah... 30 minutes and 59 seconds OR 1,859 seconds to reflect, change, embrace, tune-up, however-whatever, "Get Right". Sat in quite hope, stunned of what I had done. Quickly thinking of sheer-delight, Knowing it so, so, so much more than just a pleasant gesture, it was a Universal Deal. If you're with me now, xo. Then---he agreed! He said it was to be a birthday gift and I agreed. The smiling Jesus touched the Hands of Time and Blessed the minute 10:47 PM and he vowed a infinite blessing for the... time between... 10:16:01PM and 10:47:59PM Every Night @ 10:47 PM is a beacon you can use to... "Get Right" A whole sixty seconds for rapture, excellence, Rock-n-Roll, guitars, friendship and freedom -6 items to truly bless everyone. Practice Makes Perfect! Happy Birthday Bobby, Happy Birthday from ALL of the BIG ALL-0f-US! Here, There and Everywhere! You are so loved, xo! 10:47 PM is mythically in set in stone! as is -> To get right, xo...lol! Doubles only come once a decade! Every goodness to you, everyday!

So, the magazine Conde Nast just voted San Miguel De Allende the world's best city. I remember that's the place John Dawson (Marmaduke) retired and spent his last days. Also, apparently Neal Cassady passed away there as well. Interesting, might be worth checking out someday...
