    The smiley face is the keeper of the board

  2. SillyWilly Says:


    funny you should ask.

    I sent her the seth and may link you posted yesterday.

    she listened to it and thought it was great, but only because she thought it was funny to hear these hippies writing songs about farmer’s markets. At which point, I began to explain that maybe we needed more hippies singing about farmer’s market.

    She lives in LA. I live in Madison. I think the fight was more of a control issue. I didn’t like her making jokes about the kind of music I like.

    this is really is pretty dumb i guess.

  3. SillyWilly Says:

    Oh and Phish was brought up because she said “everything for you is about Phish.”

    which is only slightly true.

  4. SillyWilly Says:

    another Oh…

    When Phish was brought up I made the fight into a “What’s wrong with me liking Phish so much?” I could pick 1000000 worse things to be really into.

  5. Little Buddy Says:

    Silly – Sounds like some pretty normal push and pull. Eventually she will have her moment basking in the hose and she’ll understand. At least you should hope for that…

  6. SillyWilly Says:

    Yeah, thanks Little Buddy.

    we can change the topic.

    i just woke up this morning feeling shitty.

  7. Neemor Says:

    “everything for you is about Phish.”
    If I had a dollar for every time I heard this stupid remark…..

  8. Robear Says:

    Okay, Silly, I’ve got a save.

    Let her know that Seth and May are farmer’s / homesteader’s first and foremost. Singing is their passion / hobby.

    Then tell her that focusing on Phish when she’s not around keeps you from going Cheetah Woods on every waitress and barmaid you come across.

  9. Neemor Says:

    neemor: “Yeah? Well why is everything for YOU about sleeping with my best friend?!?”

  10. Willowed Says:

    My wife doesn’t make jokes about our band; she just shakes her head in disgust.
    Funny though, she’s been to a bunch of shows with me and she rages with the best of them.
    You know that uncomfortable feeling we get that our girlfriend or wife may not have a good time at a show. Or that feeling that you have to make sure she’s OK with the scene at all times. I never have that with my wife.
    She truly has a freakin’ raging time every time she attends. After a show she talks about how fun it was and how there is nothing like it on earth.

    That’s why I don’t understand why she shakes her head at mean like I am a tard when I spend so much time invested in this band.

    Women are so complicated!

    The vagina has a magical power. Very similar to Phish. You just can’t leave it. It draws you in and makes you do silly things.

  11. SillyWilly Says:

    “going Cheetah Woods on every waitress and barmaid you come across.”


    I will tell her that. She’ll crack up and everything will be good again.

    Thanks, Robear.

  12. Robear Says:

    Yeah, it makes you do Silly Willy things.

    Slow morning, topic is fine! Off to the city soon. Minor surgery for my son down at Stanford.

    Almost had an epic fail, introducing my GF to Phish. Red Rocks was her first show. We got separated right at the start, with me doing Waterwheel and her not knowing exactly what to do. We set up a place to sit, but she got separated from us. She had several run-in’s with the tarp nazi’s. Utterly unbelievable to me, because she’s an attractive young lady, and these dimball guys kept giving her schtick about being in their space. We didn’t find each other till after the show, on the lot. She was pissed, and ready to sit out the next three nights! She could not believe that ‘love and peace hippies could be such aceholes’. I said, hey, they’re not all love and peace hippies.

    We ended up keeping better tabs on each other and had a great final 3 nights.

  13. SillyWilly Says:

    I do have a small confession to make…In Cinci Night 2…I was a little weird from various things ingested. There was this smokin’ hot girl next to me and she tried talking to me in the middle of the Melt.

    I just looked at her and said, “Not now, tutz.”

    phish beat smokin’ hot girl in that moment.

  14. Little Buddy Says:

    No need for apologies, Silly. We act as a support group too! Especially for those “no one understands why Phish is so important” crises.

  15. BrandonKayda Says:

    So, downloading 6/9/09 Asheville show right now.

    Ridiculous first set (on paper) – Tube, Stash, Gumbo, Lengthwise, When The Cactus Are In Bloom, Bold as Love, Dog faced Boy, etc

    I remember that Ghost being pretty damn hot as well…Halley’s->Maze

  16. Little Buddy Says:

    “Not now, tutz.” – LLFA! Classic!

  17. Willowed Says:

    Hey Robear,

    Good luck brother. I hope your son is OK!

  18. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Is MSG 3 the Mikes >Groove of ’09?

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    Yeah, Robear, after my surgeries my dad always took me out for lunch…assuming he is outpatient.

    after a few hours after you first come to youre always starving.

  20. Willowed Says:

    @ Silly
    100% agree. Shows are not for meeting ladies.
    Do not talk to me at a show. I am commited to something else at the present time!

  21. BrandonKayda Says:

    MSG 3 has the nastiest Mike’s, but the Portland/Miami Weekapaug beat the MSG Paug’

  22. SillyWilly Says:


    I used to go to the organic grocery store to meet girls.

    1. They must have money if they’re buying frozen packages of gluten free, organic lasagna.

    2. They must care about their health if they’re buying organic.

    3. It’s real easy to talk say, “Oh, edamame is my favorite, too!”

  23. Little Buddy Says:

    Mr. P –

    I think so. I pop that Mikes>Groove in for my short lunch time runs all the time. It packs a punch!

  24. Little Buddy Says:

    vegetarians taste better. ; )

  25. Willowed Says:

    That’s another reason why I fell in love with my wife. I posted this a while back. Neemor may remember this post.

    Hartford Civic Center was the first show I attended with her. 99 I think. I was fooked up. I took way too much that night. She just held my hand and rubbed my head. Didn’t open her mouth once. Just looked at me like, God sent me here to take care of you. She was an angel that night. She was smart enough to realize that talking is not permited during shows. That’s what set break is for!
    We were married a year later!
