    I never officially flipped out at a Phish show but here’s a juicy little nugget for you guys. I went to the Hartford show 12/12/1999. Went with a bunch of rookies (worst idea ever). Ended up taking some micro dot crap. Completely flipped out on the inside. On the outside I think I looked pretty normal but the brain was straight up melting inside.
    I had one of those friends that kept asking me if I was tripping every few minutes. You know when you have a friend like that at a show with you, you are fucked.
    I have no recollection of the show, just saw shadows all around and never made eye contact with anyone.
    Here is where it gets fun.
    The show was on a Sunday. I had to work on Monday. Never slept, went right to work (still trippin balls). I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car at the time. The first call I get at work was a customer needing to be picked up at one of our Cadillac dealerships (7:30 a.m., I was in rough shape). Picked her up, tried making some small talk with her. Elderly lady (hell she drives a caddy). I ask her, “How are you today?” She says, not well, my husband passed away this weekend.
    I turned around, got in the rent-a-car and left the bitch at the dealership. Walked into my office, thru the keys at my manager and walked home.
    My brain couldn’t take anymore.
    True story, no bullshit!

    @ BTB,

    That shit was funny. I am in my office laughing my ass off. All my coworkers think I’ve lost it.

    Funny Shit!

  3. Neemor Says:

    Are you tripping?

  4. Neemor Says:

    12/12/99 was a great show, btw.

  5. willowed Says:

    I wish!

  6. Neemor Says:

    When is your ass and my ass gonna hang out? You’re like twenty minutes away.

  7. willowed Says:

    Too bad I missed. Physically I was in attendance. Mentally I was not.

  8. willowed Says:

    I know, I have it on my note pad. Stella Blue on Monday’s. Isn’t that the place you go?
    The Breakfast guitarist plays there, right?

    We need to do that!

    Purple, I don’t think you’re missing much by not going to shows all lit. I’ve gotten much higher from the music than any amount of drugs has ever taken me. I prefer to see shows with a clear head. Not that I haven’t had my fair share of fun in the past but there is a time and a place for extra curricular activities. In my experience, the higher I am, the more water I drink, the more I go to the bathroom, the more I miss Phish.

    I’ll share two of my stories: I had a lot more freedom than most teenagers so most of my partying experiences came before I started going to shows regularly. I ate a lot of phsycadelics in high school and had a little more fun with it when I was 20 but soon got away from all of that. Fast forward a year to Big Cypress, I ran into a friend who never ate L before and was going to drop 10 for his first time ever on that New Year’s Eve all by himself. Me being the good friend that I am, decided that he shouldn’t be alone for his first time. So instead of staying sober and babysitting him, I thought it was a better idea to eat 5 to be somewhat at his level. Long story short- I went to Big Cypress single and left a married women. I missed a good portion of that all night set too. I could hear it, but I just couldn’t make it back to the field. And I have no idea what happened to my friend that ate the 10 either.

    My other story took place the second night at Hampton for the comeback run. Keep in mind that at this point, I am a mom, going to school, working, don’t drink or do drugs (other than puff a little here and there). My husband convinces me that it would be a great idea to have a little extra fun while we are away from the kids. I ended up puking off the balcony, practically felt up a cop, and missed the whole first set because I couldn’t stop telling my husband how much I loved him. See why I like to keep a clear head?

    Robear, I was at that show in Tuscon. I’m from Illinois and I ran into a girl that I went to highschool with at that show. I had fun, but then again, I usually do. I couldn’t tell you how many epic shows I’ve missed when I had the chance to go, but all because Phish didn’t have my heart yet. Halloween in Illinois and Vegas come to mind.

    Big nasty- your story had me laughing so hard.

    Stella Blue in Asheville? That place is cool!

  11. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @willowed, that is a hilarious story

  12. Neemor Says:

    Yes, Willowed.
    He does.
    Plus Stoopes on keys from RAQ.
    Good, good stuff.

  13. whole tour! Says:

    Good golly!!
    10 hits is pretty hardcore for your first time. That would have scared the shit out of me! Especially in a crowd as large as cypress.

    I hope your friend was alright.

  14. Neemor Says:

    Kung Fu is all Beck and Zappa stuff.
    Brilliant compositions brought to life by some brilliant modern day artists.
    A must see.
    JDubs, you too.

    Sticth, did you want to get married in the swamp or just meet your future husband?
    What the hell happened?
    “Long stories short” don’t work for me.

  15. Neemor Says:

    Right, I did 1.5 my first and lost it. (In a good way.)

  16. willowed Says:

    Het Stich,

    Funny you say that. After that Hartford show (see post above) was when I realized my girfriend (who was at the show and nursed me to health) was the one for me.
    I was flipping my lid and she was as cool as a cucumber. She new what spots to touch (rub my head, hold my hand etc.. I know what you guys were probably thining), what music to play on the ride home. She was a cool cool chick that night!

    Been married for 9 years this July!

  17. whole tour! Says:

    @ neemor – Same here. I did like one my first time. And spent like 3 hours wondering why and orange smelled and looked so orange….lmfao.

    I could not fathom 10 on my first run through.

  18. willowed Says:

    Hell I did 1 hit of blue bloter my first time.

    Ended up hiking to the top of Sleeping Giant Mountain (Neemor should know that mountain) with a pack of smokes and a lighter at like 3:00 a.m.

    Stayed up there until the sun popped up!

    If I took 10 I would have ended up in an insane asylum

  19. whole tour! Says:

    @willowed and stitchstash-

    Met my new girlfriend in Miami – so i can relate 😉

  20. willowed Says:

    For 3-4 hours me and my buddy were on a quest to find Big Foot. We thought we saw him when we were up there, of course I don’t have evidence of this.

    I swear to god I saw him!

  21. Neemor Says:

    Sleeping Giant refernce.
    Ten points.
    Although, you lose thirteen points for grammatical errors.
    So, there you are.

  22. Neemor Says:

    As I spell reference wrong.

  23. willowed Says:

    Hold onto her Wholetour, I am sure she is a keeper.

    Women who dig Phish are special indeed!

  24. willowed Says:

    – 3 Could be worse.

  25. whole tour! Says:

    She is so special.
    I am beyond smitten.
