  2. YborCity Says:

    Shirt idea:

    Front: Phish Always Wins
    (Baseball jersey style — i.e. letters, etc. — maybe with a number on it…)

    Back: “…Way to PT Phish Thoughts…”

    Humorous? Right? I’d buy!

  3. EL Duderino Says:

    It’s “All Ugly and Green. The biggest ‘ole alligator that I ever seen”

  4. EL Duderino Says:

    checking out the nomenclature for the BC roses – disc 9

  18. whole tour! Says:

    now that IS the proper nomenclature!

  19. kayatosh Says:

    listening to 6-24-73 dark star — 27 mins.. jazzy and loose. no singing until 15 mins. in. highly recommended.

  20. Corey Says:

    Wait, Mr. Palmer, you picked West Virginia over UK?!??!
    That’s it, I’m taking back my birthday wish.
    (Not really, just a fellow Bluegrasser who’s having a difficult Sunday afternoon.)

    So, yeah congrats on the work pool win.

    Re: T shirt (how bout a long sleeve too?)

    It should have all POSITIVE messages, with a bit of humor too, of course.

    The last thing this board needs is to fall into that fatty vat of negativity.


  21. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Corey- sorry about the ‘Cats, nothing personal. Being a huge BE fan i knew WVU was the type of team that could give Kentucky problems. Kentucky poor shooting is what did them in though.

    Kaya- have you heard the Winterland’73 recordings? If not, there is a Dark Star on 11.11.73 that i love. 35 minutes or so. When i cook chicken or something in the oven i used that song as my timer. Chicken comes out perfect! 🙂

  22. whole tour! Says:

    ^ just hit up that winterland dark star yesterday!
    sick jazzy acidic goodness

  23. voopa Says:

    The river so white, the mountain so red
    and with the sunshine over my head
    The honky-tonks are all closed and hushed
    It looks like Palm Sunday again

  24. SplitOpenAndSparkle Says:

    just been reading the posts about the t-shirt…….

    When on Summer Tour, strong B.O. is not a good enought deturrent for stubbers down, when it comes to keeping/maintaining your personal seat space.
    or something to that effect…

    maybe not what yer going for, merely a lookers on suggestion..
    Good times to all this summer!
    Good Luck to all in the Lottery!

  25. Corey Says:

    @Mr. P Yeah, actually I’m glad I had other plans than to sit in front of the tube and watch their terrible shooting. Just awful based on the stats.
    I caught the last 4 minutes…they almost had a chance to pull it out. But again, their poor shooting prevented any last second comeback.

    Re: that GD show — great Dark Star. 73 was a good year.
