  1. Marshall Says:

    I believe Clinton and Bush when they say send money, not blankets. There is infrastructure that exists for aid relief. I think I read that the World Food Bank (or something like that) is prepared to feed hundreds of thousands of Haitains for months with MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat). Our $$$ pay for that to happen.

    OK – I’m going to go donate that $200 I mentioned to http://www.clintonbushhaitifund.org/

    Marshall is shutting up now.

  2. butter Says:

    nice call Marshall,

    i’ll match ya

    butter is shutting up now

  3. Neemor Says:

    Well done, boys.
    Way to talk it through.

  4. Neemor Says:

    Was it ’03 that Fishman started to rely heavily on a crash cymbal?
    Anyone know what I’m talking about, or did I just dream it?
    There was a lot of talk about him using it to much, it was almost like a gong sound??

  5. Marshall Says:

    Question: would be be considered a “bust-out” if Trey performed the entire TTE acoustic all by himself during a show, a la the barn http://vimeo.com/5020855 ?

  6. Marshall Says:

    At a Phish show, that is, not TAB.

  7. Lycanthropist Says:

    good afternoon folks!

    how are we doing?

  8. Mr. Completely Says:

    but lives are only saved one at a time…Unless Brian Williams learns how to amputate a leg to prevent the onset of gangrene, his presence in Haiti is essentially useless.

    Sure, of course they are saved one at a time. And one more doctor would be great. But two things – first, I think you underestimate the importance of the media in mobilizing global response. The on site reporting with images of suffering are what create the mass outpouring of donations. So there is an argument that media presence is necessary and has a multiplier effect.

    Second point is that it’s not either/or. News crews are flown in by their companies, not the government, usually. They find their own way in, typically. In some cases they shoehorn into existing military relief flights. If they didn’t come at all, extra doctors and relief supplies wouldn’t be there in their place.

  9. Mr. Completely Says:

    @voopa – as a parent, I know well that there are few things more insufferable than parents who think that if you’re not raising the next generation you’re wasting your life or being selfish or something. It’s an egotistical and nonsensical point of view. Sorry you have to put up with that.

  10. Mr. Completely Says:

    FWIW, Mt. Hood is about average snowpack wise. Started off great, has tapered off.

  11. Mr. Completely Says:

    when we’re talking initial emergency relief efforts, money is always best

    not blankets

    not food

    not visiting

    just money, to someone that will use it well. In addition to the orgs you already know about, I suggest Mercy Corps:

    they do on-the-ground, highly trained emergency response teams all over the world. highly respected group, very effective.

    In a couple years, if things are safe – then visiting, whether for volunteering or tourism, will help

    right now when they say money is the most helpful, that’s the truth

    I worked for Red Cross after 9/11 and got a glimpse of how all that works

    the logistics of trying to move and use donated goods are very wasteful

  12. Mr. Completely Says:

    bless you for your self awareness Marshall

    seriously, very conscious stuff

  13. Neemor Says:

    I try to remain as blatantly self-unaware as possible.
    How ’bout that JOTD Tweezer>Lifeboy?

  14. Lycanthropist Says:


    well than I guess I should tell you that you got a little crusty on your nose. 🙂

  15. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Nice job butter and Marshall, you inspired me to donate to the clintonbush fund as well. Need to decide whether to see zappa plays zappa or watch football. time is ticking. Listening to that fest8 soundcheck… Devil w/ a blue dress?

  16. Neemor Says:

    Thanks, Lycan.
    Yeah, I pretty much spend most of my days running into walls and falling off piers.
    It’s not an easy life, but it keeps me sane.

  17. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    zappa plays zappa, obv

  18. Marshall Says:

    Lycan – that reminds me of the SNL sketch where the interviewer is interviewing two people: a woman whose reality is 30 seconds ahead of the world and a man whose reality is 30 seconds behind the world. It’s a gut buster. Woman starts going nuts and then 30 seconds later the dude shoots a stream of hanging snot out of his nose. Of course, he’s an oblivious fool for 30 seconds more


  19. Marshall Says:

    Or maybe he’s in Olivia’s Pool. I can never be sure.

  20. chefbradford Says:

    Thanks to whoever posted the links to the F8 acoustic set HD video yesterday. Magnificent

  21. butter Says:

    zappa plays zappa on the boat was really weird

    there was improvisational music flowing all over that boat

    and to go sit and watch a band try to be something so practiced and

    composed was just weird

    it zapped all our energy, found us sitting in our chairs saying this is

    just weird, we ran back up to the pool deck where Karl D was throwin

    down with Jeff Coffin, Maceo and others just straight slayin jazz/funk


  22. garretc Says:

    If we’re talking beatles albums I can’t resist throwing in my opinion, as I always do when people around me mention their favorites…

    If Help! ended with Yesterday, if Dizzy Miss Lizzy either was never put on album or was at least somewhere in the middle, then Help! would be my favorite Beatles album of all time. But as it stands, I just can’t get past how terrible the transition is from Help into DML… So instead my favorite is Abbey Road…

  23. Marshall Says:

    I didn’t really “love” The Beatles until I heard “I’m Only Sleeping” for the first time. It was ear-opening.

  24. chefbradford Says:

    I had a great experience burying myself under a pile of clothes in a closet while listening to Sgt Pepper & Magical Mystery Tour the first time I tripped, but Abbey Road is probably a desert island album for me

  25. garretc Says:

    Haha chef, that sounds like it’d be the shit! I might have to try that myself sometime…
