Deadstein blog is open for business


Well, Deadstein.com has been  messed up for 3 months now and we haven’t been able to post for 2 years or so, probably more so I figured maybe it’s time the get with it.  I have been listening to Leo LaPorte on podcasts on my new AT&T Tilt while biking to work recently, and he is a tech guru and he suggested WordPress.com as the blogging/webpage solution that sounded good for Deadstein.  So here it it and here it goes. 

Like any evovling wold of communication, there will be some rough patches in the road.  I assume we will insult someone, some how.  Remeber the Johnny/Dave Schwartz censorship battle in the 90’s I believe.  So take this new path for what it is, avaoid the potholes but enjoy the enginuity and we blog into the future. 

Then again, this webblog thing in WordPress.com maybe another failed atempt to get a forum going.

    It’s about time you got this going. I hear wonderful things about WordPress.com and I assume our experience on it will be very good.

    I have renamed the Blog something that I think is free from copyright infingement issues. What do you think?

    I actually tried to fill in the jams database on Deadstein.com with the best information I had available in an effort to keep that database relatively up-to-speed. I had to fill in information from February through the end of July so it was quite the task, but atleast now these jams will show up on the web site with the MP3s that Rich uploads available on those pages. I also copied old setlists by Kevin and renamed them so each of these jams have a poster associated with them.

    Please realize that the MP3s will also be available from this blog also.

    Users and this blog. If you are a registered user to WordPress, as I see Trister, Jason, Rich and Scott have become so far, then if you login into WordPress first, before checking out our Deadstein blog, it remebers who you are and you can add comments to any post and/or page without filling your name, email, etc. In addition, registered users can also initiate new posts to the blog from which people can then comment. As a user you can also set up a profile with a picture (Avatar) that you can upload and use as your picture. notice, how I have Rags the Dog when logged in as lgindoff but I have the Deadstein Logo when logged in as Deadstein.

    People can post comments to the blog who are total stranagers and you will see where I am called Larry when I did that it it provides me with a generic avator. Any comments posted by starngers first go to me for mederation and approval prior to being posted on the sites. I am still trying to figure out if registered users can place comments and/or posts to the site without me having to approve them. If one of you registered users wants to post a comment or better yet, create a new posting, please do so in an effort to get this blog under my belt.

    Larry, I like the new web site, or at least having the site back up and running.
    I must say, though that you left out some important choices for the “favorite part of a Dead show” vote:
    – Hippie chicks with their finger in the air waiting for a miracle
    -The long walk from the Giants Stadium parking lot to the Arena where the show is
    -Pissing in the sink during Drumz
    -The juiced-up yahoo who has been singing and dancing in front of you all night finally passing out during Space
    – Jerry’s disgusted look as Bobby lurches into Around and Around before his beautiful final slow song has wound down
    -The relief you get when you realize the encore is not U.S. Blues
    – The realization that what you just experienced was the coolest think happening in the world at that time.

    Greetings to all I just got back from Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival where I had the opportunity to video 28 sets of music I would love to stop by Carrols and show you’all some bluegrass and other stuff, too. It brings to mind the Philly ’89 Dead show videotapoing w/LarryG. My battery dies during roundandround. Larry says thank god and they do the California Earthquake…
