    Everything will work out Robear. Stay strong! Hope Jacy gets better soon!

  2. Robear Says:

    Wow, what a weekend! ‘Deep Thoughts’, ‘Phishtory-Deep Cuts’, ‘Phish imitates art, art imitates Phish’

    Someone rustle up Type III. You all are awesome!

    Any help on setting up the ‘No Spoilers’ would be appreciated.

    Where’s the Sirius simulcast for Fall Tour?

  3. gus Says:

    wow just looked at the recording info for party time and saw that If I Told You is a Page song…I had no idea. and it was recorded and mixed just by him, thats sick.

  4. gavinsdad Says:

    …family first robear…always a good look…hope your son gets better quick.

  5. Robear Says:

    ^thx ya’ll. 🙂

    fatbunch, the stories have been priceless, thx. Legend

  6. Jon Says:

    Hi folks – change of subject here. And let me apologize right up front if you happen to feel this is unethical. But: to anyone that’s been there, can you fill me in on how easy, or hard, it is to “stub” friends down at MSG? The reason I ask is that we’ve got five in our group and all of our tickets are in groups of four, so there’s always going to be an odd man out unless we can get a routine worked out that way. Thanks for any help. We’re going to be a bunch of NYC-virgin yokels on the loose out there for all three nights and I’ve already got some serious adrenalin pumping about it.

  7. Jon Says:

    I think I hate Peyton Manning more than I hate Tom Brady, so I concur. Only for tonight though. Fuck ’em both any other day.

  8. sumodie Says:

    Stubbing down is easy -it’s making everyone fit and be happy wherever you end up, including your neighbors. With 4 tickets it should be especially easy.

  9. SillyWilly Says:

    @BK and all the other philosophers…..I had a professor at the University of Dayton, a phd in comparative lit., who always said that the future of academic work was in multi-media art. he got paid for papers on molly ringwald movies, fight club, the use of the word “cock”….that kind of thing….
    anyway, ive been thinking lately, why can’t phish be incorporated into the larger conversation on postmodernism? and what im really getting at: WHY CANT I GET A PHD IN PHISH???

  10. jed22 Says:

    GP420 where you at?
    @ Joe I am with you

  11. joe Says:

    I know this is the happy oasis of good vibrations. and I totally love all of you, and fall tour is going to be the greatest thing that ever happened to anybody. But Fuck the Colts!

  12. butter Says:

    ^^@SillyWilly – ask Miner how he got his

  13. joe Says:

    colts stil have a chance.

  14. joe Says:


  15. gavinsdad Says:

    @ jon – someone will have to tell me differently but stubbing down is stubbing down in whatever venue you’re in. been part of my repertoire for too many years to count but per Sumodie i always try to be conscientious of the neighbors and i never stub down to a reserved floor.

  16. gavinsdad Says:

    @ jon – also seen phish a bunch at msg over the years and it’s a free for all. specially if you’re lo-key/of jedi mind, etc.

  17. Mr. Completely Says:

    Psychedelia before phish was so Serious – they are the first big ones with the courage to look the Worm dead in the eye and say “ha ha ha”

    Well said. Kind of a second generation approach.

    Although, I did luckily have the opportunity to work on some fMRI and PET studies of advanced Tibetan meditators… which promptly blew my mind and set me on the course I’ve been on ever since.

    love to hear more about that

    In terms of Wilber and the postmodernists, I still think the Madhyamikas put it all much more beautifully and deeply, and 1800 years ago taboot!

    Well, primary sources are where it’s at, they can’t be replaced and KW always made that point. I would say that the “value add” of his work is in finding parallels between the various ancient wisdom traditions, and mapping those parallels in a methodical way that leaves pointers for practice (i.e. not just theory). Also in extending those parallels to areas where modern science has something useful to say…

    such as calling shenanigans on some of the bullshit that comes with the old traditions, such as the very oppressive social realities they supported. Such as the absolute patriarchy in most Buddhist societies…

    there are a lot of areas where postmodernist theory, feminism, and the scientific method have a lot more useful truth for us than even Tibetan buddhism or Taoism…that’s his fundamental point that I have taken to heart…every thought system is only appropriate in its own context.

  18. Jon Says:

    All right, thanks for the feedback, sounds like MSG will be smooth sailing. Fucking Colts . . .

  19. Mr. Completely Says:

    the above being said, to answer your question, for me the best philosopher for every situation is Lao Tzu

    mostly I just listen to the voices in my head though.

  20. Mr. Completely Says:

    @Robear – stay strong my friend. Hit me in email for help with No Spoilers. Do bandwidth restrictions cause you trouble? Last I saw, there were still direct download links going up, so that part should be easy. If for some reason you need to use torrents, I can help you with that.

    I wish there was more we could do for you.

  21. joe Says:

    wow. negativity is a funny thing. the second I posted bad thouhts about the colts is the second that karma turnpeed around. peace and love for real everyone!

  22. gavinsdad Says:

    I second Mr. C’s vote for Lao Tzu….i’m pretty tao’ish i’d say if i had to nail it down. in particular i dig stephen mitchells translation of the tao te ching.

    signing off.

  23. Mr. Completely Says:

    the tao te ching is short enough that it’s worth reading a couple translations at least. can be very interesting. my favorite is by Ursula K. LeGuin – a high priestess of the evolution of the human spirit – hers is very poetic and beautiful


  24. Weekapaug Says:

    “Accept what is in front of you without wanting the situation to be other than it is. Study the natural order of things and work with it rather than against it, for to try to change what is only sets up resistance. Nature provides everything without requiring payment or thanks, and also provides for all without discrimination- therefore let us present the same face to everyone and treat all men as equals, however they may behave.”
    Lao Tzu – Tao Te Ching

  25. Mr. Completely Says:

    wow an assist from Belichick, never seen anything quite like that
