    Anyone have a good link for watching tv online? I wanna watch this season of Californication but its not on iTunes and all the stream sites I’m finding are full of ads to the point its not worth it.

  2. Mitch Says:

    Screw it. I’m starting Lost on netflix finally!

  3. Mitch Says:

    just ordered my phish thoughts shirt taboot. good day so far after the hippie speedball wake up.

  4. Mr.Miner Says:

    Starting LOST!!! Wow! Enjoy it, and clear your schedule 😉

  5. stitchstash Says:

    I can’t believe this….. I just convinced my husband to let me drive up to Michigan with one of my girlfriends for the tour opener!!!! Are there any extras floating around on this board? I’d love to take them off of your hands! I have to work at 7 am the next morning with a 5 1/2 hour ride home but I don’t even care!! I’m going to the show!!!!

  6. halcyon Says:

    Mitch…My girl and I just arrived late to the LOST party, and wow is it addicting. We watched 7 episodes in a row on Friday night!

  7. Lycanthropist Says:

    LOST = greatness.

    Mitch and Halycon – You guys are in for a treat. Its a long road, but it only gets better as you watch.

    Enjoy it.

    just popped on that 10/31/83 gd someone posted earlier and my 6 mo old puppy won’t stop barking at brent’s keyboard tone – thinks it sounds like the doorbell

  9. Pencilneck Says:

    We watched 5 episodes of Rome last nite. That show rules. Highly recommendo.

  10. c0wfunk Says:

    btw the file I downloaded has a corrupt file – the space track, which leads into the st stephen bust out -> I went and grabbed the d/s fob from the archive, we’ll see how it fits in..

  11. mmm hmm Says:

    So ive been searching all morning for this sick MSG 97 or 98 light show video (can’t remember the jam) that someone posted in a comments section in the past month or two. The lights will give you a fucking seizure they are so good but I cant find the video. The angle of the camera seemed to be in the back upper level of MSG and got a pretty good widescreen shot of the whole arena. Part of the jam the whole arena is blacked out with Kuroda playing with white lights jamming to the tune. Can anybody point me to that video? Thats a vague descrip but im dying to see that video again!

  12. mmm hmm Says:

    Miner, can you help? I want to say that it was posted in the first page or two of the comment section for the topic of the day…

  13. Frankie Says:

    I believe you are thinking about this Twist video from the first Island tour show at the Nassau Coliseum in ’98…

    Either way, it’s my favorite video of CK5 out there for sure… the way the lights jam with the music is unreal!!

    Hope that helps… have a great sunday ya’ll!!

    Time for some Indoor Phish in 3 days! Life is good! 🙂

  14. mmm hmm Says:

    Close but not it I dont think. The cam shot looked up higher and further back with the whole audience in the shot behind the band and on the sides. it was more of a circular view…any other guesses?

  15. mmm hmm Says:

    pretty sure it was a new years run msg video and not island tour

  16. mmm hmm Says:

    you can really hear the crowds reactions too

  17. mmm hmm Says:

    that twist video is nasty though

    @Mr. C – RE: sound qual from 8

    the sound at the festival improved tremendously from night 1. I was super excited at the improvement. By day 3 the sound was as good as i’ve ever heard at a “field” show. i would venture to guess that the 10/30 audience recording reflects that.

  19. butter Says:

    @stitchstash- thats awesome that you get to go to the tour opener!!!

    don’t worry about a ticket, you’ll be able to pick on up off the ground or just have someone hand you one at the entrance

  20. stitchstash Says:

    Thanks butter! I’m soo excited! My husband doesn’t want to drive all over the country anymore to see the band, but I do! He still likes them and all, but I don’t know, maybe he’s just lost that loving feeling. He had a great time at F8, but I could only convince him to do ‘Cuse and Albany. Luckily, I have a great girlfriend in the area who can match my appetite! Are you going?

  21. butter Says:

    No, i’m goin to Maui on Saturday with the fam. First missed show since Alpine. I’m hittin MSG and NYE tho !!!

  22. stitchstash Says:

    I love Maui!! Have you ever been? Paradise! I back-packed there for a month with a bunch of girlfriends in ’99. Great memories! Your going to have a blast!

  23. butter Says:

    Yea, i went last year for the first time. Brought my daughter and took her out snorkeling and that was the absolute shit.

  24. stitchstash Says:

    I want to bring my husband and kids too! They would love it! You have inspired me to plan our next family vacation!

  25. stitchstash Says:

    Wow first missed show since Alpine! That’s a pretty good average! You have a great run to look back on.
