    This is easily my favorite Suzy ever. Page destroys his solos.
    Straight from Gamehenge, the Giant Country Horns!

    I’ve been going through Blackboard withdrawl. It’s been hard to find the time to visit lately. Last week, in the first grade class that I’m student teaching in, I had to say “Backwards Down the Number Line” several times. It made me miss this site even more.

    @ Robear, I know I’m a little late with this, but I’m glad to hear everything went well with your son. I’m not exactly sure what happened but reading back I could see the love and support from this community. I just want you to know you have mine as well.

  4. SillyWilly Says:

    Hey, stitch, I remember we talked a little about organic hair care products…You wouldn’t happen to have a favorite chap stick or lip care product? My girlfriend has some wicked chapped lips, and I want to get her something. She’s been using the Burt’s Bees stuff, but it doesn’t seem to be helping.

  5. SillyWilly Says:

    Haha^ I go to the blackboard dermatological advice.

  6. Leo Weaver Says:

    Morning all…nice to wake up to some Jiboo and a cup-a-joe. I heart trey loops. The Roseland show was a lot of fun. Wifey and I were propped up on the soundboard rail, next to Kuroda. I spent a good part of the show watching him work his magic. Seems like there were some kind folks from Boston next to us, we all shared in the goodness. Alright, a chick-fil-a chicken biscuit is in my very near future…along with a refill on the joe. Now I gotta figure out how to get ‘baned here at the in-laws…maybe I should walk the dog.

    another in the standout November 94 run

    This Mike’s > Groove is one of the best

    killer 1,2,3 or Llama, Guelah, Reba to start

    94 Phish at its best

    2nd set is perfect mix of jam and Phishiness

    think Trey was trying to win over some midwest fans in 94?
    damn they blew it out at both these UIC shows

    The boys at the top of their game

  8. verno329 Says:

    Yeah that 6/18/94 Divided Sky is the one that Trey talked about in his Charlie Rose interview, from what I recall. He said that during “the pause” he was envisioning the notes he was playing, without playing them, and the crowd reacted as if he was playing the notes and he couldn’t get over how cool that was. (paraphrased from memory so I could be off on some details)

  9. Leo Weaver Says:

    @verno…I remember that interview and comment. You’re gonna be at the Charlotte TAB show, yeah? If so, shoot me an email…cannondawg at gmail dot com. I’m trying to figure something out for pregame festivities as there’ll be a few of us ‘boarders there.

  10. albert walker Says:

    a little 5/7/99 TAB St. Louis
    I was told by someone I attended this show with them
    can’t remember shit

    love the Further on up the Road opener

    I have been lovin the 3 piece!

    gold old school 3 piece guitar rock

  11. verno329 Says:

    Leo, you’ve got mail!

  12. stitchstash Says:

    @ Silly, I too use Burt’s Bees. But it’s all in the flavor she picks. Most people like the minty one, but I disagree. The Honey flavor is where it’s at. I didn’t think the mint one worked well for me either.

    I was recently informed that Burt’s Bees isn’t all organic or has something in it that is questionable. I can’t remember what it was, I’ll try to sift through my old e-mails to find the article. It was all about products who claim to be organic but still use harmful additives.

    I still use the product. I’m still going to use it until it’s gone or I lose it. Even then, I would most likely buy it again. I really love it. It took me a while to find one that I liked. I don’t care if it isn’t the best and most organic chapstick in the world.

    I would also suggest she drink lots of fluids and should consider a chapstick with SPF. If you’re out on top of a mountain riding or skiing SPF protection is key.

    Wow, long post about chapstick. Sorry about that.

  13. fat bastard Says:

    morning boys…so i saw DSO last night at the Vic. It was OK. But remember when you were 12 and working on your reverse layup like MJ? that’s what is like watchin the fake Jerry play solos. Just cause I put a little spin on the ball and cradled it a bit didn’t make me MJ

  14. verno329 Says:

    Those trio Trey shows from ’99 are awesome, aw! I even liked the acoustic sets too. I remember hearing those the first time and thinking how ballsy it was for him to do that. To go from a face melting electric guitar all the time to playing solo acoustic (when his chops on acoustic weren’t nearly as good and his voice has never been his strongest suit) in front of a crowd that wanted nothing more than to rage was incredibly gutsy. Gained a lot of respect for him there.

  15. albert walker Says:

    yeah verno being a dumb spun kid can’t say I loved the acousitic set

    I saw Chicago, Indiana, Wisconsin, St. Louis, and Ann Arbor

    just downloaded them all off etree and can’t believe how hot some of the electric stuff is

    maybe have to spin some of the acoustic stuff also

    has been years

  16. sumodie Says:

    burt’s bees honey flavor is the shiznit!

    goes great w/ phish, hippie speedballs, dog walking, & snow shoveling.

  17. halcyon Says:

    @ Stitch …From what I have read, Burt’s Bees are owned by Clorox. Since then some of their ingredients are not all natural, or organic.

  18. fat bastard Says:

    what up sumo! you going to some TAB?

  19. (Formally Known As) BrandonKayda Says:

    About 33 inches of snow here

    Supposed to keep snowing until tonight

    Then again on Tuesday


  20. verno329 Says:

    Yeah the solo acoustic sets aren’t something I listen to a bunch now at all, or really even then a bunch either. I was just remember being impressed at how much courage it must have taken to step so far outside of your comfort zone and what people were expecting to play solo acoustic when it clearly was not a strength of his at the time.

  21. stitchstash Says:

    Thanks halcyon. I’ve never heard that. Maybe it is time to consider a new product. Something about Clorox and chapstick isn’t sitting right with me.

  22. albert walker Says:

    anyone wanting some of this 3 piece TAB

    they are all up on btree right now

    I sampled the whole midwest
    they all sound good the St. Louis is a pretty high grade AUD if anyone is interested

    can’t beat the Further on up the Road, First Tube, Let’s Go Downtown, Jibboo to open

  23. albert walker Says:

    Clorox just owns it

    it was once a small independent company
    been bought and sold a few times through the years
    can’t stay independent forever talk to Ben and Jerry

    has nothing to do with the chemicals in it

  24. Mr. Completely Says:

    “Best Divided Sky ever!

    It was so good it brought Trey to tears during the silent part of the tune if I remember correctly!”

    @El Dude – if you do not know it, seek out the Trey interview re: this Divided Sky that Kevin played at some point…

    He describes it in the kind of terms that we usually use to describe Phish experiences, it’s amazing to hear.

    Apparently he was feeling very “in tune” with the crowd and during the silent part of the song, he started consciously but silently “playing” notes and progressions, just in his mind, you know…and the crowd responded by cheering! Trey took that as confirmation that the whole Whatever It Is That Happens At Shows With The Band And Crowd Thing is actually real. Kevin played a matrix of the DS too and you could hear the crowd response…

    pretty epic to hear him talk about it, even if the crowd response was just random it’s a trip to think about Trey getting his mind blown by that…

  25. Mr. Completely Says:

    @stich, nice to see you, I was wondering where you’d gotten to
