Grateful Dead Fan Site Reborn
At their peak, rock legends “The Grateful Dead” attracted an estimated community of 40,000 self-proclaimed “Deadheads”
trailing them as they toured the country. The movement had originally
spawned from fans meeting at concerts and networking on mailing lists.
Mailing lists turned digital with the launch of Dead.net, which will relaunch in the next 24 hours as a full blown social network.
The new version of Dead.net was created on the Drupal content
management platform and features extensive archives cataloging Grateful
Dead history, songs, photos, memorabilia, and shows, indexed and
searchable by tags. Dead users will be able to participate in forums,
upload their own photos, and bookmark concerts and shows they have
attended. Fans will also be treated to exclusive free mp3 show
JONI MITCHELL , PAT METHENY , JACO PASTORIUS 1979 Santa Barbara County Bowl
Yes, it’s Joni at the peak of her powers, backed by musicians who would become legends, if they weren’t already. And if you close your eyes you can lose yourself in it.
Dennis Kucinich acts presidential, the Republican on the panel admits to not REALLY knowing how it’s going in Iraq, and Bill defends Alec Baldwin’s right to yell at his daughter. The model for “A Few Good Men”, former US Attorney David Iglesias, has a live sitdown with Bill and is promptly and rightly called a hero by Maher. It seemed like Mr. Iglesias was a little emotional and it was a very good moment. Richard Belzer was great, not interrupting with cute jokes right in the middle of great discussions like Dana Carvey did a few weeks back. The Baghdad bureau chief for NPR, Jamie Tarabay, told of how the Green Zone is a myth in that it’s more dangerous than the (red zone) and so she and her staff don’t stay there.
Republican Lisa Schiffren, the former speech-writer for Newt Gingrich among other things, tried to talking point her way out of a discussion involving Iraqi oil revenue and the money supposedly going towards reconstruction of the infrastructure…. “Well maybe things haven’t gone on line as fast…well I haven’t actually been there so I can’t speak for how things are” after the Baghdad bureau chief flatly says: “that’s just not true”
It’s sad how completely and utterly full of SHITE “these” people are.
