  2. Mr. Completely Says:

    Butter commented once that he found it somewhere, wasn’t sure where…Mr C said the same thing. How very mysterious…

    Some local-news website photo essay.

  3. Kaveh Says:

    Boo-yah! That is what I’m talking about! Going back to the Final Four. Having a Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale to celebrate. Been a Duke fans since I started high school – 1988. Boo-yah!

  4. Kaveh Says:

    Looks like it is down to me and KWL with Jon Bailey holding the lead heading into next weekend.

  5. gavinsdad Says:

    quick poke in…

    @kayaT: couldn’t agree more on those Dickie B lyrics…that song gives me chills every time.

  6. (Formally Known As) BrandonKayda Says:

    So what are the odds this Phish 3D thing will be released in some HD DVD package?

  7. Kaveh Says:

    Completely rocking the house with the IT Chalkdust Torture…life is good! Can’t wait for this week; off to a great, great start. 52 miles on the road bike today, wife’s homemade chili and a Duke victory. Boo-yah!

  8. Kaveh Says:

    Remember to spin a version of JGB “Palm Sunday,” since it is Palm Sunday after all.

  9. garretc Says:

    Poiticians in my Eyes is a real real cool song. Damn.

  13. sumodie Says:

    @robear: ok, ok, I’m torrenting, I’m torrenting

    Finally got the external set up again so I’m happily dl’ing away again….

  14. m00nshake Says:

    what’s everybody jamming too, now?

    I love Phish, but I like to keep my finger on the pulse of the current newschool scene as well, too. Right now, I really like…

    Animal Collective – Fall Be Kind

    The second track “What do I want, sky?” has a looping lyric from Grateful Dead’s ‘Unbroken Chain’, and the song is very addictive and catchy. The rest of the EP is standard, bizzare Animal Collective.

    Girls – The Album

    I listened to the first track, and I thought to myself, “this just isn’t good.” But I let it play on low volume, and then a track later on in the album got my attention. I turned the volume back up. And man was I glad that I did. There is a lot of good, heart-felt rock and roll here that brings back memories of Elvis Costello, Ween, among others.

    Vampire Weekend – Contra

    Vampire Weekend is jazzed up afro-pop played by pretty white boys for pretty white boys and girls. But man, do they do a good job of it. Think Paul Simon’s Graceland, but for the kids, and preppier, and you’ve got Vampire Weekend. Their second album and just as catchy and addictive as the first.

    Neon Indian – *

    I can’t remember the album name, but Neon Indian sings over pretty catchy 80s-type Nintendo glam-electro. Deadbeat Summer is all you need to start the party right… and the album is quality overall from beginning to end.

    The Warm Heart of Africa – The Very Best

    Malawi singer, I can’t understand what he’s singing about, but boy does it sound great, groovy, and down-to-roots whilst the music and beats are fresh, modern, and extremely addictive. This is a must-listen, and again, it’s topshelf from beginning to end.

    other albums that I like but I’m not going to write about, yet…

    Surfer Blood – Astro Cortex
    Real Estate – Real Estate
    Atlas Sound (Sheila is an awesome track)



    oh, and I’m going to see Ween in Winston Salem in two weeks. That’ll be a blast, I haven’t seen the Boognish in ages.

  15. Robear Says:

    nice work sumo! worth it for the sound check.

  16. butter Says:

    so blasting sleep again acoustic version from F8 with the sun setting at my local yocal sonoma county gas station and this dude walks by and says “great song”

    i’m left wondering does he know its a Phish song and is a fan, or just love it

    it really went with a tranquil sunset in wine country, fwiw

  17. neemor Says:

    I’m listenin gto silence…sometimes it’s all I want to hear.

    Goodnight, blackboard…

  18. neemor Says:

    Things I learned on the Blackboard (neemor edit)

    * Positivity enriches the scene
    * Don’t skip the sleeper
    * Leave no one behind – even if he’s just seen Icculus.
    * Glowrings look cool in the air, not hanging on a Cactus
    * Never trust a w00k in a blazer
    * Balloons should float
    * We can’t hear Page through your blathering
    * The best way to start a day is the hippie speedball way
    * Expectations breed disappointment – leave them in the lot
    * Thank you, Mr. Miner

  19. butter Says:

    “* The best way to start a day is the hippie speedball way”

    love it

    even tho all i can think of is Brent Mydland and his life cut tragically short when reading it

  20. neemor Says:

    * There’s only one tree in Wisconsin
    * I have a good friend in all 50 States
    * This band sounds nothing like DMB
    * My boss hates Phish
    * The grey areas were the best part
    * A visit from the wife is a good thing!
    * Everything (I highly suggest this one, btw!)
    * You CAN describe this music with words

  21. neemor Says:

    Insert ‘neemsbane’ in place of ‘hippie speedball’…

    Good call, I agree

  22. Gavinsdad Says:

    Neemor just laid em down ladies and gents. Good stuff all weekend. Thnk you guys are all set. Baned up in the bar. Great lakes apa on tap. Good things. So stoked for a 2 days in NC!!

  23. garretc Says:

    Dear Phish,
    If you could perform an 8/11/1998 style blow up of Runaway Jim at any point over the coming summer, but especially during the Camden > MPP run, it would be very much appreciated.


  24. Gavinsdad Says:

    @butter: love the sleep again. Def want one his summer. Sounds like a nice nite out there….

  25. neemor Says:

    Dear Phish,

    If you could play a very sweet and exploratoy ‘Lifeboy’ in Saratoga Springs for my friends and I, that would be great.

    Yours truly,

    P.S. I also like Demand. Also, posterkid is Mike.
