    Certainly does sound intriguing...just a bit too pricey for me. Thanks, Marye, for the admin cleanup!

    What's in a name, Marye?
    A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Please name the new thread, "Sunshine Daydreamers Keep on Truckin'" If you can include the last 3999 posts, that'd be swellll...just kidding, of course. But if you could include the last 17 (make that 20, see the above 3 hangers-on and ne'er do-wells) or so of the posts from #1, first above written going back to and including July 4th the Happy Anniversary one, that should give one and all some context, as that was the day 2 years ago, when we first met each other for real, where we broke bread and watermelons at the finest pizza pic-a-nic this side of the Rockies, and whence we collectively enjoyed a grand and magnificent band celebrating all good things. Thank Yew veddy much, Oh Kind One.

    We're very intrigued by the Playing in the Sand gig come February and will most likely pony-up. Spoke to a dude at CID today in Philly who's been at all the gigs there (D&C, DMB, etc...) and he said is simply knockout gorgeous and as intimate a live beach concert setting as you can imagine. Multiply that by three shows and "all-inclusive" amenities and the the money grab rolls-on... Anyone else contemplating?

Good luck you all on the divide and conquer Ebay sale. I intend to wait for a bit longer. Try to relax this whole thing is way more stressful than it used to be. My heart raced every time the seconds ticked down to a sale time. CID presale, TM sale, Dear Jerry Citi bank presale, Dear Jerry 9:30 club presale, Dear Jerry public. That is 5 near cardiac arrests while waiting for bits and bytes to come over the wire and show me success or failure. At least the Mail Order was not a single high stress moment, just a series of days waiting for bad news. So watching an ebay auction come to an end and wondering if my bid was accepted would be too stressful. I do wish you all luck though.

Nice avatar ASL! Looks like a sticker, are you printing them? I've printed some GD50 logo stickers, 2.5" round to give to everyone at the pic-a-nic, would love one of these though.

Couldn't have said it better bro....you are spot-on. And to be clear, my expectations are still low on copping any of these eBay auctions. I do know this - I prefer a GDTS TOO commemorative ticket, rather than a TM ticket (I think I can speak for all on that one). I also want a frickin' view of the stage (which I believe every GDTS TOO ticket will have). I also believe, as posted last night on the big board, that when tickets finally get sent out in June and arrive in people's mailbox, that there will be a flurry of ticket sales during that time period. So, I've concluded that yes, there is a price for "peace of mind" by securing a ticket during the next 8-10 weeks, but patience, as always, is a virtue.

I enjoyed the Dead Covers Bracket also. My first choice was "He's Gone" by Alice and her gang. I also liked The Lower Companions "Mississippi Half-Step" and The Play Dead "Black Throated Wind." For the record, I am hoping for a ticket for at least one night - with a view. Ideally a MO ticket. Depending on the cost, I will hopefully then have a ticket to get in the building to miracle to somebody. Welcome SoCalDeadfan! Nightzzzz

Hey now peeps: Yesterday I posted an eBay sale of interest for us. The initial $ 0.99 starting point for these four (4) alleged GA-Field GDTS TOO tix is now a still modest, $ 405. The seller has like tix for all three shows. The auction has two (2) days left. I sent him/her the following e-mail this morning. Trust but verify gang. Let's see if I get a reply. Will advise. Dear lakedrive101, Hi there: I represent a group of folks from dead.net. We are interested in buying all of your tickets for all of the shows. Can you answer the following questions please: - are these, as you state, GDTS TOO mail order tickets? - If GDTS TOO mail order, can you please provide a screen shot of their e-mail to you validating your lottery win with their batch #? I ask you this because your ad mentions the option of a TicketMaster transfer which is simply not-applicable for a GDTS TOO hard ticket. - You indicate these are "GA-Floor" seats. Are these, via the original Soldier Field seat map, the PL4, $99.50 seats? - Are you a deadhead? If not, no need for your reply. If so, please respect the spirt of our community. We'll pay significantly more than face, but we can't produce for you a wheel barrow of money. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Well, the dude replied to my emailed questions with the simple words: "Good luck" Then I replied asking, "So that mean you opt out in answering my questions?" His reply: Correct. Not interested. See folks? Trust but verify. What a jackass. Hope some trusting head doesn't get taken for a ride.

I also reported it to ebay as a fraudulent item. If they get back to me I will let them know that the seller does not have the item he is selling and is selling speculation.

SSDers...I probably owe you information or something...it has been a crazy several days, both professionally and personally. I see there are dozens of unopened emails in my inbox, which I won't get to until probably at least tonight. I am not this unresponsive as a rule..if there is anything critical needed from me now, please poke me.

Dark Star Orchestra just announced shows July 2,3 at the Vic in Chicago. Most of you are probably familiar with them. If not - they (usually) replicate historical Dead shows and they're great. Every once in a while they perform their own original set lists but they're mostly Dead tunes with a few other covers mixed in. John Kadlecik (Furthur) got his start with them. The Vic is an awesome venue. I saw DSO there a couple of months ago and as always they delivered. They did a Chicago show from 1976. Tickets are usually easy to get but with the July invasion they'll be tougher. Tickets haven't gone on-sale yet.

How many estimated-Eyes a day is too many? Closure is good. I'd rather go get a slice or be a monkey on ecstasy. moe anyone? moe might just be the right counter-balance after a long day of Dead.

Totem - perfect. I forgot DSO. I'm sure more and more will be popping up, so I'm real glad that you're on it. Also it's Pink Talking Fish :) rrrgrrrr - OCD or none, nothing wrong with writing the name of a band, or spelling a word correctly. I too honor the alphabet. I respect and revere my given and unusual name (Chandra), but Stella sure has a nice ring to it! Thanks family. ps. un-dead but Chicago-weekend related - I will be looking into the possibility of Blues and House music (both very Chicago related). If any of you have a line on either of those, please PM me or otherwise drop me a line! I may only have enough bandwidth to do all of the Dead related things plus probably the Art Institute.

For anyone who hasn't seen DSO - they really are great! I've seen them a few times in Baltimore over the years. They replicate a past Dead show start to finish. Lots of fun! The Vic might be a good Thursday night group activity for whatever SDs are in town?

GM SD'ers !!! Hey now, for anyone interested and getting into town the day before the shows, rrrrrgrrrrr and his wife, and my wife and I will be heading to The Kingston Mines (a classic Chicago blues club). Given there will be three wonderful days to Let the Music Fill the Air from Friday to Sunday, Chi-Town is one of the blues meccas in the US so why not take in some or the local color, right? http://www.kingstonmines.com/ Note: AND TO THE RELIEF OF MANY OF YOU....I AM NOT ORGANIZING A FIELD TRIP FOR THIS :-) (but if Totem attends, we may have a 2nd daily event countdown!!) PS - if any of our local Chicago peeps have another or better recommendation, bring it on please.
