The Dead Thread

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

I am alive and thankful for the Internet which allows me to listen to Grateful Dead Radio while I use my computer to work on a newsletter which I will send by snail mail to people who are stuck in the 20th century but were appalled by that era´s musicians such as Jerry Garcia and his buddies.

Not sure which one this is. I do like gdradio.net. However I am listening to this on the Itunes music app and it doesn't tell me the URL. Plays GD, Bob Dylan, Allman Brothers, etc. Good music from back when men were men, hair was long and the dead were grateful.

I am strongly considering selling down some of my vinyl collection. I have a good number of doubles which I certainly don't need to be holding onto. And there are others I just don't ever listen to. I'm not at home to give a detailed list, but would anyone be interested in any Dead stuff? If so, I'll inventory what I have tonight and put it up here. Dead stuff also makes good wall-art as coco has shown:

The skull and roses design is one of the most widely recognized examples of psychedelic art. It was composed by Alton Kelley and Stanley Mouse, who added lettering and color, respectively, to a black and white drawing by Edmund Joseph Sullivan. Sullivan's drawing was an illustration for a 1913 edition of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. The Kelley/Mouse design originally appeared on a poster for the September 16 and 17, 1966 Dead shows at the Avalon Ballroom, and appears in a modified form on the Grateful Dead album, colloquially known as Skull and Roses or Bertha (The first song on the album) in order to distinguish it from the Dead's first, eponymous album.

It also scares my kids.

I have a picture of a dead squirrel in a babydoll outfit tied to the hood of a truck with bailer's twine. I took the picture outside of a bank in Ohio. Whenever I get around to cleaning the pics off my old desktop, I'll post it in the Bank thread.

I do NOT have tickets for any of the upcoming Dead shows in Chicago this summer. I tried very hard, but failed. They were all gone a few minutes after buying started.

The second set is uneven, but the first and third sets are stellar. "Viola Lee Blues" is the perfect penultimate song when followed by "We Bid You Goodnight."

Dead Heads with Netflix should check out The Other One: The Long, Strange Trip Of Bob Weir. It's a movie about the long, strange trip of Bob Weir.

Due to the overwhelmingly positive responses to this thread, I wanted to update CPSland about ways to see the last three shows if you don't have tickets. I will be watching the simulcast at my local movie theater.

I am a new Deadhead.

Such an amazing group of musicians that I wrote off years ago.

I always thought of The Dead as a lowly folk/hippy band, I only was familiar with two of their songs "Truckin" and Touch of Grey" which played endlessly on MTV during the eighties.

I never knew until recently that my favorite wing place "Fire on the Mountain" is actually a reference to a dead tune :egor:

SKIP to the 5 minute mark.

Then I might be able to relate.

A box of Dead arrived on the doorstep yesterday, courtesy of an extremely generous Moonbase Alphian. It is far better than I deserve on my best day. Many thanks!
