LOST Discussion Thread:

In order to preserve everyone’s personal journey through the six seasons of LOST, I have created a specific post/thread to discuss this week’s episode. Keeping LOST discussion to this location will keep people who are behind from reading spoilers – because that is the worst. Please respect this and keep all show commentary in the previous post.


Jam of the Day:

2001 > Simple” 11.18.96 II

This is one of the first jammed out “2001’s,” coming before Trey began playing ’97 funk licks – a psychedelic combination. And the “Simple,” included on the extra disc of “Vegas ’96,” is simply sublime.

    7-1-97 and 7-2-97 are so, so twisted but incredible

  2. neemor Says:

    This is Ghost as a baby, too.
    So cute.
    Cheekpinchability quotient factor:

    Crunchy Trey sound. Remarkable.

  3. Gratefulcub Says:

    Europe 97 – summer 98 are the host of Ghosts I want living on my street

  4. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Gordo singing the background vocals is hysterical. How baked up is he. hittin the hash bars pre show?

  5. neemor Says:

    cub, nice lyric usage. And timing. I wondered if you’d catch the ‘cheekpinchability’ line.

  6. neemor Says:

    Seriously, this is the Phish I blossomed beneath.
    I love 1997.
    Fell in love, and listening to this, it’s extremely easy to tell why…

  7. neemor Says:

    I love clicking the ‘Submit Comment’ button on blackboard.
    Your comment looks so different on the black page that it almost metamorposizes.
    “You’re onthabackofdaworm”…

  8. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Neemor- Do you know where you are?

  9. neemor Says:

    Watching ‘American Idol’ on mute.
    Flogging away to the sounds of Phish Phunk ’97.
    Can’t figure out what to watch, but this simply isn’t doing the trick for me at all.

    “Can’t figure out what to watch, but this simply isn’t doing the trick for me at all.”

    Visually, of course.

  12. Gratefulcub Says:

    I did. And I had a pretty happy smile when I posted, and your Ghost baby came up before.

    I was proud of my new phrase from last night, but no one was around to see it. When I am staying up late on baby duty, I shall refer to it as ‘peppaduty’.

  13. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Man v. food- travel channel. i like food

  14. ohhphee Says:


    If you’re around, I’m listening to Mon. night’s show, and I’m really enjoying

    it! Finishing “Pound It” right now. Very nice compositions!

  15. neemor Says:

    Peppaduty is nice. I had a little with my little one this afternoon. Smiles for miles.

    I found ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter’ and am only glancing at it.

    This Ghost is my favorite one ever at this point.

  16. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Although you may eat your hand if your all boned up watching Man v. food

  17. ohhphee Says:


    Particularly when the diaper is full.

  18. ohhphee Says:

    Damn. Neemor beat me to it.

  19. Mr. Palmer Says:

    @cub- how old is little one?

  20. neemor Says:

    Holy crap, I’m doing the Trey head tilt and bop!
    I usually just go with the Mike drop-bop, this is intense!

  21. Lycanthropist Says:


    thanks man
    the middle three songs are all debuts

  22. Gratefulcub Says:

    18 days, 1 hour, 17 minutes

  23. neemor Says:

    At the end of that Ghost, they could’ve stretched that natural groove that developed for like, the next twenty years.

  24. Lycanthropist Says:

    i just got me some neemsbane!

  25. Gratefulcub Says:

    The wife is on her way to bed, peppadew is asleep, I will use the time before the feeding to get ondabackadaworm
