  1. Weekapaug Says:

    What is the truth, what is the faithful lasting proof?
    What is the central theme to this everlasting spoof?

  2. Phish...Yup Says:

    Glad we got the tweeprise to end the fest.

    Definitely calling a weekapaug somewhere in the opening show.

    Weekend nuggets do the trick.

  3. Baxter Says:

    Knock on my windows, link up the chains
    It’s gotta be easy, no splinters no pain
    It’s Cadillac rainbows and lots of spaghetti
    And I love meatballs so you better be ready

    I’m going down to the central part of town.

    even carl sagan can’t shine my shoes

  6. c0wfunk Says:

    I know deep inside … (it’s got some mighty fine…. What’s that next line?? anyone?

  7. Mitch Says:

    I think the weekapaug no mikes will be saved for cincy again.

  8. Highway Bill Says:

    and I love meatballs so you better get ready?

  9. c0wfunk Says:

    got my “tickets on the way” email for cvill this morning! I’m so tempted to make the 6 hour drive to cinci next weekend but if I want to do Miami I need to hold back.. fall phish yay!

  10. Mr. Palmer Says:

    That Tweezer video is bad ass.

  11. whole tour! Says:

    @ cowfunk… you still doing those underground webcasts? Is there anything going on the week of thanksgiving? I might be up in asheville visiting family and such. I’m sure one night i might be wandering around downtown asheville if i can get away from the family for a minute.

  12. whole tour! Says:

    wait for miami! it will be off the chain…again.

  13. c0wfunk Says:

    we are still doing the tuesday jam broadcasts, but it has gotten spotty lately as our drummer situation has kind of fallen apart and our space is a bit in flux. We jammed last week but didn’t broadcast and it was 2xsynths and 2xguitar. Very intense space communications – fun but it’s hard to find an audience for! I hope we’ll be a little more regular soon.

    That said, we take it week by week and I am not sure about the week of thanksgiving. There’s a good chance we’ll be off that week with everything going on – I’ll have family in town and people are gone etc. But definitely drop me a line anyway I will be here and we can go grab a beer or something somewheres..

  14. c0wfunk Says:

    …do you play an instrument?

  15. BrandonKayda Says:

    Robear – The mix is treating me very good right now, need to clear some HD space for th second disk though.

    6-14-00 is a monster…Twist->jam->Walk Away->jam->2001


  16. bl68300 Says:

    i like that slide show a lot! those people know what theyre doin!

  17. Olive Loaf Says:

    I think they open with Weekapaug Wednesday. First time ever to open a show?

  18. Leo Weaver Says:

    Morning all…hope it’s as nice there as it is here…’bout 60 degrees, sunny, and I’m working on a nice G13 High Mtn Hippie Speedball with Feight playing in the foreground…not bad for a mid-November Saturday morning.

    Any of you fellas know why I always get a “Error Occured Please Try Again Later” notice when I try to watch something on YouTube? It only happens on my laptop and has been this way for a long time. Guess I inadvertantly screwed up a setting. Any help would be appreciated…killing me not to watch some of these vids.

  19. Robear Says:

    Thx. Mr. Miner! That 9/9/99 BC was my only show north of the border. The place was not very full. We scaled a small railing and enjoyed the show in a private suite, complete with refreshments and tons of dancing room!

    Nice Leo! Big Jams, BK!

  20. c0wfunk Says:

    spinning through this 9-8-00 this mornin – while this is a lovely sounding aud I forgot how spoiled we are in this new soundboard era of phish! I missed most of fall 00 so I look forward to this one, I love this mellow laid back era of phish .. so (too?) comfortable, nothing to prove, let’s just see what happens. Good times..

  21. Leo Weaver Says:

    Good times indeed!

    Ghost = 🙂

  22. Robear Says:

    That fall 2000 tour was a fun one too. 9/18/00 @ Blossom Music Center was my daughter’s first show. We were stoked, she got a ‘Guelah Papyrus’.

  23. c0wfunk Says:

    diggin the ghost now – very very nice funky peak here in the middle. So patient. Trey kickin out the wah, page riding the organ and leading on piano … mmm phish2000

  24. Robear Says:

    Hey GP420, Butter, and other boilermakers:

    Go Green, ‘Victory for MSU’

  25. c0wfunk Says:

    ahhh red kickin it to the next level at the 12 min mark – and fishman all full of splash cymbol and ass kickin .. Mike is rollin it up …

    we were just diggin into asheville fall 00 and didn’t get on the road at all after seeing the second half of summer tour. Then did NYE out with SCI in portland. I remember kids headin out to tour and bringing back love and smiles though!
