  5. Matso Says:

    Ah, the DOTD is one of the all-time classic tapes from back in the day. I listened to this one more times than could possibly be healthy. The tape was mislabelled so I thought Weekpaug Groove was actually called Diamond Girl until I expanded my collection, which wasn’t until later in 94, so I remember calling for “Diamond Girl” at Halloween 94, with the people next to me looking at me funny.

    Good Morning All. Get out there and do it this week.

    The boys are covering a Stones tune on Jimmy Fallon Thursday nite. A reason to tune in.

  9. BTB Says:

    Dave – congrats! That’s always such a relief.

    Chicago Opener – Runaway Jim

  10. ohhphee Says:

    Morning everyone,

    @cowfunk, was that group of 12 year olds part of the Paul Green’s School of Rock? Just curious.

    Whipping Post for a tour opener.

  11. mrfergie Says:

    morning all – c0wfunk, sounds like an amazing weekend

  12. c0wfunk Says:

    ohhphee I don’t believe so ..

    they were a little group of rockers called ” my homework ate my dog” and they had some pretty good gumption if nothing else. Also a couple of choice Soundgarden and Green Day covers.

    Also interesting to me – during one of the poetry sessions I was at one of the kids read a “tribute to kurt cobain” .. little did I know when grunge was everywhere when I was in HS that kids would still be listening to it 15 years later, the same way I was listening to 15+ year old classic rock at the time.

    The LEAF kids village was expanded this year to have a big stage w/ kids act, and I found myself with a staff position running the smaller stage along with a group of interns – kids 12-16 – who got experience with stage setup and running sound during the show.

  13. ohhphee Says:

    Apparently Nirvana has longevity. Yeah, my friend’s daughter is in the Chicago School of Rock. Some of those kids are uber-talented.

    Funny, after I posted that WP opener, I looked it up to see when they last played it. Turns out I was at the last two shows they played the song. Alpine in ’96 and Deer Creek in ’99. 208 shows in between them.

    They have played 210 shows since then. Hmm. Due?

  14. El Duderino Says:

    The ’96 WP was a spoof. The DC ’99 was a full on WP for Chris’ b-day

  15. Stupendous Says:

    Morning Folks!

    Super Uber Tired this am

    couldnt go to sleep till 3:30 last nite.

    Things are still weird in the former stupendous household.

  16. c0wfunk Says:

    I still put some nirvana on, on a nice dreary rainy day when I’m feeling crappy and want to brood it works pretty well. The acoustic thing they did is very much a classic album for me and nevermind is good too. Some of their electric live releases are pretty cool. Very few people can scream like kurt.

    I know there are a lot of folks here with kids and families and stuff and I want to really encourage any of you in the Southeast to check out this LEAF festival. It is a spectacular safe family space where adults can get loose and have a great time at the same time as their kids, while exposing their kids to amazing world music, art, and culture.

    It gives you the festival scene you know and love without the offers of drugs, the nitrous, and the sketchy kids. Those kids are replaced with an amazing generation of Asheville’s best indigo children running around like the lost boys of never never land in packs of feral children discovering the world together.

    All this with the backdrop of Lake Eden, nestled in Black Mountain on the site of the original Black Mountain College – one of the US’s first art schools. It’s a full blown camp with a meal hall, canoes, a zipline, and waterslide.

    http://theleaf.org to check it out. They go down twice a year, spring and fall, this one was the 30th.

    damn that looks like a spam advertising message but seriously folks:)

  17. c0wfunk Says:

    yo stupendous what’s up man? – hope things are ok?

  18. ohhphee Says:

    Fish:”Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday. You smoke a beeg spleef, and you don’t pass it to no one!”

    Loved that show. Didn’t miss not being at Woodstock 3 at all.

  19. El Duderino Says:

    Wasn’t WS 3 where they were setting things on fire?

  20. ohhphee Says:

    @cowfunk

    You could go into advertising with that kind of description, llfa. Seriously though, that sounds pretty f’ing awesome. Don’t have kids, but I have friends that would love that kind of thing. We’re all in the Midwest, though.

    @El Dude

    Exactly! Trey talked about that at the show.

  21. Stupendous Says:

    c0w
    my girl and I are splitting up after 6 years living together…

    gotta find a place to live by next month…

    other than that everything is ok

    i posted about it a lot last week…

  22. El Duderino Says:

    Yep. I remember now. He was saying how thankful he was for the Phish DC crowd.

  23. El Duderino Says:

    @ Stup

    You still thinking your gonna bail on FL.?

    I think maybe you should. Perfect reason to leave now IMO.

  24. c0wfunk Says:

    ugh sorry to hear it man .. I know you were looking to get out of FL maybe it’s a good time to think about new scenery? Get a month to month place now and then make the jump? Anyway I wish you luck in the next stretch that is sure to be tricky waters regardless..

  25. Stupendous Says:

    on a positive note

    apple replaced my time capsule for free after warranty was expired

    big thanks to mitch on that one!
