    What's Happening

    My eldest son got me a Blackberry Storm for Fathers Day and been playin with it ever since. Shortly after, I stumbled onto this site and been reading it basically everyday when I have a chance. I just want to thank everyone who contributes their time, I have learned so much from sooooooo many of you. Besides the knowledge I have gained here I also appreciate the sense of humor and also what some folks put on the end of their posts such as their apps, what their listening too, etc. Great stuff here.

    Folks I appreciate the warm family welcome. Jason, yes my son is pretty cool.....well except when he comes over and complains about the Jerry Garcia music coming out of the Blackberry hooked up to that rich sounding Altec Lansing system. Lou, memory serving me correct I believe a couple of weeks ago at the end of one of your posts you were listening to Greyfolded. Love it. Its neat how every member of the band from 65 to 95 is in it. Some of my other favorite Stars are 2/3/68 (nice n new) 9/2/68, 3/24/70, 2/18/71, 5/11/72 (47 minutes of heaven) and 8/27/72 to name a few. Right now I'm listening to 9/20/74.....Eyes

    Outstanding!

    Do you find yourself vascillating between which lineup is your favorite? One day I am "It has to be Pig." Then you hear Keith and Donna Jean on a medley bookended by Playin' and you get those goosebumps when Donna Jean starts wailing as that last chorus comes back in. It changes day by day!

    There is nothing like Grayfolded when you need to turn on, tune in and drop out (literally or figuratively).

    Keep on Truckin' bro!

    Absolutely Lou, I wrestle around constantly thinking of my favorite lineup. But after the smoke clears it has to be with Keith and Donna. I remember exactly where I was in 79 when I heard they left the band. I do enjoy Pig belting out Lovelight or Its a Mans World but nothing beats the Bob and Donna scream fests um um exchanges ie Around X2 and OMSN

    Lou, I'm glad you brought up Deadpod. About a month ago I happened to see on THIS site an app for a podcast download. I downloaded it, subscribed to Deadpod, but it won't play on my Blackberry. It gives me an error message with some number (I forgot what the number was) Am I doing something wrong? Currently listening to 6/10/76 Row Jimmy.

    Hmm. I do not know. What podcast app are you using? Can you replicate and pass on the error message? I do not listen to podcasts on my Storm. I get my Deadpod subscription via iTunes on my PCs and iPod. You may want to post the question in the fixes and Findings thread for your current OS in the Storm forum and in the Software forum (always feel free to create a new thread as well specific to your app).

    Another good one is Rob Cork's Music. I have on Paris 5/4/72 (set 2) right now. Just a solid Pig-era set (or part thereof--he had to break it up to keep the Dark Stars on the same pod).

    Good Lovin

    Lou, Wow.....Whoaa! That was an incredible Star. 40 minutes well spent. I put on the headphones for that one. Nice n trippy, spacy. I'm gonna check out the Good Lovin now. There was no way I could focus to post listening to that masterpiece. On an aside the error number was 403. And the app was called ultra podcast. In the interim to satisfy my cravings I purchased one of those 16 GB micro cards and I have as of now 71 shows on my Blackberry with 1.6 GB's left. Oh, listening to 5/4/72 Good Lovin. Just started....vocals are a bit low but nice "ow's"

    Definitely some excellent grooooovage!

    Are you sure you are getting 403 and not 413? Here is what I found on Ultra Podcast (FAQ page):

    Q: What does error 413 mean?
    A: The blackberry server has a limit as to the size of the file that it can download at one time (5 meg I think) so if you're trying to open a complicated web page with embedded flash object or something else which is larger than the size limit, you'll get a 413 error.

    Deadpod shows have mondo data, so that might explain something.

    Also, Ultra Podcast has a forum. You might be able to obtain some relief from there. http://www.ultrapodcastplayer.com/forum/

    If you are getting a 403 error and it relates to http, this would be an access forbidden code relating to a non-responsive server, so the subscription ot the app or some techie thing along teh Interwebz may not be behaving properly.

    Back to more important things! This week's Deadpod was a treat (just listened to it at the office today):

    March 23, 1972
    Academy of Music, New York, New York

    (end of set 2)
    Two Souls In Communion
    Mexicali Blues
    Dark Star
    Big Boss Man
    Not Fade Away ->
    Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad ->
    Not Fade Away

    The only minus was the Sugar Mag encore was missing, but still awesome. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Not Fade - > GDTRFB - > Not Fade!

    Peace in the Mideast! Feel free to hit me up on BBM anytime.
