The Breakfast Almanac
« on: February 26, 2008, 09:59:17 pm »
Hello folks,

I\'m Matt. I\'m kinda new to The Breakfast, but I\'ve been a huge DMB fan for awhile now. Anyways, DMB has this tour almanac in which they list all of the setlists, songs, lyrics, guests, time of recordings and such, and I was thinking of doing one for The Breakfast because I love keeping stats.

So, if you would like to help out, let me know. I already talked to Dave about this on AIM, but if you\'re interested, hit me up with either a PM or IM, I\'m writguy89.

Thanks,

Matt.

Yeah, but it is somewhat cumbersome

I would love that, if for no other reason than to add another book to my library collection(Deadhead Compendium Vol. I, II & III and The Phish Companion Vol I & II)

Even though all the info can be found online, it\'s still nice to have a book handy for a number of reasons.  It\'s portable, can quickly look up a show or song, can add it to your collection of other books, etc.  I always liked how in the Compendium and Companion you could look up a song and it\'ll tell you what song preceded it and follows it for each time it was played.

Just thought I\'d add my 2¢.

No, I actually read ALOT, but those are the ones in my BATHROOM library...if I try to read novels in there, my legs go numb.

Hey guys, thanks for the support. I know what you mean about .info, and I just want to say, I mean no harm to it. I love this site, I think it\'s great but here is what I\'m looking at:

http://www.dmbalmanac.com

I want to do something like that with tour stats, i.e., what songs were played, how many times, what guests, teases, stuff like that. Breakfast has a lot of shows, obviously, I just want to get it organized, you know?

The only problem that I\'m going against is that I only know HTML, like basic stuff. I don\'t know how to do php or stuff like that.
