    Great points Mr. C, my thoughts behind my comments were more submissive jabs on the recent ideals of a country. I do believe in my heart that we are doing all we can and more. With no infrastructure to speak of logistically it is terribly difficult. I am avoiding mainstream reporting as well. Recent times have seen too many mass human tragedies. Mother Nature will always do her thing but as a planet we need to elevate our love and compassion to help balance the energy of the planet. All the aggression and suffering by humans is definitely shifting the energy of our bio sphere towards aggressive patterns of destruction. Love and compassion for the human race is what we need know.

  2. Luther Justice Says:

    Due to the Beatles discussion, I just started up some Rubber Soul to kick off the day…

  3. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    Abbey Road was part of the first purchase of albums I made for myself as a wee tween, so that will always be my favorite. Love Revolver and some of the stuff on Let It Be (I know, I know…) and then, of course, The White Album is fantastic.

  4. Mr. Completely Says:

    Also re: why Haiti is the way it is, have to be careful with a reduction to imperialist/colonialist causality since the entire Caribbean and Latin American region shares much of that same history – Haiti is certainly unique (e.g. post slave revolt isolation era) but the bottom line is “it’s complicated” – easy answers are always wrong

  5. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    what a great start to a day: sun is shining, getting stuff done, hippie speedball in full effect, great phish on the box (Gorge RnR to kick it into gear)

  6. jdub Says:

    Abbey road, revolver, white album,

    Let it be has a distinct place in my heart, I love the rawness of it, the symbolic ending of an era. Some great songs on there too. I got a feeling, homeward bound, across the universe.

    Has anyone seen that newer beetles movie with Bono’s cameo as a new age ken Kesey. Is it called “across the universe”

  7. Mr. Completely Says:

    word jdub.

    really the problem is simple: human overpopulation.

    anyone got a solution for that?

  8. Robear Says:

    So far, can’t get enough of ‘Corrine, Corrina’ from Miami.

    Love Page on the baby grand.

  9. jdub Says:

    Stop having babies

  10. Mr. Completely Says:

    and my simple answer is wrong too. it’s more complicated than overpopulation. but that’s the root issue.

  11. Luther Justice Says:

    I thought I saw a figure where they said in Port-au-Prince there were 2 million people in a 10 mile radius.

  12. Robear Says:

    Mr. C, true dat. Howz about condoms and reproduction education distributed via the Catholic Church, which, as we know, has a huge presence in Haiti. Maybe they already do those things, maybe not.

  13. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    jdub, I’m a Let It Be fan too. Across the Universe is one of my favorite songs of all time. I actually even dig the version Fiona Apple did for that movie Pleasantville. Just an amazingly vivid song.

  14. jdub Says:

    Your right mr. C overpopulation is the root cause. No doubt about it. The stress it puts on the earth and all of her overpopulated inhabitants is widespread and systemic

  15. Luther Justice Says:

    In cheese 70s movies, they have been showing the Sgt. Pepper’s movie with the Bee Gees this month. And with Frampton, George Burns, Aerosmith, etc.

  16. Luther Justice Says:

    On HBO this month

  17. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Have some friends in Jamaica for the Gov’t Mule shindig down there. i’m curious as to the atmosphere there, being so close to Haiti and all.

  18. jdub Says:

    Global Population has grown exponentially in the last hundred years, it is shocking when you look at a chart and realize that if we continue to grow like this in about 30-50 years the planet will start to cleanse itself like it has in the past.

  19. Mr.Miner Says:

    also: Miner posting the “canada” map as the picture for the download = funny

    ^ glad you thought so too 🙂

  20. Neemor Says:

    For our friends North of the Border (Frankie), we thank you for hosting The Phish for these classic shows.
    That is all.

  21. Frankie Says:

    Watch out for the 2011 Canadian summer tour from St-John’s, NF to Victoria, BC…

    The “phish who?” club tour…

  22. Neemor Says:

    Places who don’t know what Phish is are so cute.
    They remind me of puppies with sunglasses on.

  23. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:


    how’d #4 go last night?

  24. cal Says:

    Good morning to all! I can’t resist a good Beatles discussion…after a lifetime of music geekdom (um, partial lifetime, I guess I should say), I do think REVOLVER is the greatest album ever made. I’ve only felt that way for about a year, though. But most songs on that album still sound like they’re from the future. After 40-odd years, few artists would have the balls to release something like “Love To You”, “Dr. Robert” or of course, “Tomorrow Never Knows”, and zero artists have the creative capacity AND musical ability to write and perfrom them. Even if you prefer SGT. PEPPER or something, you have to admit that REVOLVER is the pinnacle for McCartney.

    I have to say, though, that over my lifetime, I’ve listened to BEATLES 65 at least as much as REVOLVER. It blows away its British counterpart (BEATLES FOR SALE). “No Reply” and “I’m A Loser” to me were the beginning of Lennon’s departure into the darker potential of a pop song, and those arrangements are just flawless. But the last three tracks are about as perfect as you can get: “I’ll Be Back”, “She’s A Woman”, and “I Feel Fine” bookended by two Carl Perkins tunes??? It doesn’t get any better. (yeah, I’m a complete sucker for rockabilly). The “fake stereo” version of “I Feel Fine” in all its manufactured reverb glory is my idea of the most perfect pop recording ever.

    I also have to go with the American version of RUBBER SOUL; the English versions are better in all other cases. But opening the album with “I’ve Just Seen A Face” has always felt better to me than “Drive My Car”, and I don’t think “If I Needed Someone” works as the second-to-last track either.

    ABBEY ROAD was my fave for a long time, and I still think that “I Want You” basically allowed for everything good that came out of the 70s after it. And I always come back to “Paperback Writer” as Paul’s great latter-day classic.

    I should probably shut up now.

  25. Neemor Says:

    It went well.
    She let it slip that she ‘loves me’.
    Poor girl.
    No idea what heartache awaits.
