    I don’t want to know the show!

    I going to throw in my 2 cents. First Please keep your comments in Kindness and the Spirit of the Love of the Music, life is too short to be surrounded by hate. Second. Dark Star plays in the spirit of the Grateful Dead and when I went to shows in 80's and 90's I never knew what I was going to see that night and that was part of the Magic. I honestly went for many reasons the music being one, but friends, the circus and the sense of being part of something special, thats what DSO does for me. In this day in age when everything moves fast and we have so many choices we all want it to be easier, but for me the chance of getting something different was always possible every night and that made it fun. That is why some of most memorable DSO show's have been Electives. I know many people will argue both sides and I can see their points, but I know my answer, I want it to be like it was at Merryweather Post in June of 1983 or Alpine in 89...I had no idea what was coming next and later I learned either did they. Have fun and dance and smile....while you can. Dr Vapor.

    This Place Used To Be Fun.......

    Ten years ago, I walked this street my dreams were riding tall Tonight I would be thankful Lord, for any dream at all.
  3. I joined the forum as member number 49 or so... now we have a number in thousands I believe, and when Ron started it ...it gave us a place to talk about the music we loved and really thought was lost when Jerry passed in August of '95...and then came Dark Star Orchestra and I couldn't stop talking to my friends about the energy I felt back in my body...you got to go see these guys they are amazing..and so the story goes...its been truly a family for me and I have to say what I have seen over the past few months is different....sure times change...but lets remember why we are here...to hear the music played at its highest level...to meet firneds...to laugh and cry about life...lets leave all the BS at the door....it hit me the other night while I was watching the new GD DVD from Philly and just seeing Jerry up there smiling at Brent with his devilish grin and Weir in his poney tale and less than masculine short shorts... I cried and I laughed on how much I miss the Good O'l Grateful Dead.....lets not ruin what we have now but embrace it and make it grow for all the ones who never got hear and see what some of us did....the 15 band members and crew give up so much to keep the flame alive and I say Thank You and I hope everyone else will say it. too.....peace ...Dr. V
