    Anybody else a little worried about the weather for the next couple of nights? (Please, no Deer Creek 09 repeat tomorrow cause there is no pavilion,although it was the best lightning show ever!), and not sure what the layout is @ Blossom or PA.

    I can’t contain any longer…
    I’m off kids.

    Safe, happy, healthy travels to all.
    Enjoy couch tour those of you who can’t make it…make the best of it together.

    Hope to catch most of you this summer at some point.

    Smiles and funk

    I’ll probably stick around for the setlist discussion/some calls (maybe, going to cut back on that this year)

    Regardless, tour is going to be great, and MPP is going to be great.

    “I like Cake.”

    their version of Mahna Mahna has been in heavy rotation at our house for many moons.

  8. butter Says:

    at Blossom we’ll be under the pav @bigjig so no worries and that is the one that is 50% chance

    at Toyota and Hershey we will become one with the elements, no where to run, no where to hide, like Red Rocks

    I haven’t heard from Dude or bigjig about my ride for them from HTFD to SPAC.

    Guys, if you need still (or not), lemme know…

    I just finished Jitterbug Perfume today, btw.

    What an incredible book

  11. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Dude ain’t going to Hartford or Spac

  12. neemor Says:

    Butter, was it you and jig that I was driving??

  13. joe Says:

    the new ex-girlfriend?

    I know it’s a stupid movie, but it’s on topic (slightly), in Fever Pitch when Jimmy Fallon meets the girl during the off-season, she thinks he’s norma and then the season hits. Feeling like this might have happened to a few Phish fans during hiatus (or just this winter).
    (Note: the actual book, Fever Pitch, about being a soccer fanatic by Nick Hornsby does a very good job about describing obsession)

  14. Mr.Palmer Says:

    BK- i’m a 1/3 of the way through Jitterbug myself. 1st time reading anything form Robbins. Interesting so far.

  15. neemor Says:

    Yes it was.

    Just go to BTB Fest and we’ll figure it out.

  16. bigjig Says:

    Hey Neemor, sorry about the confusion, but my travel agent Butter has not sent me confirmation of our plans hopefully he can clear this up!

  17. butter Says:

    its butter not dude neemor, wow you have been away

  18. Robear Says:

    neemor, any luck on disc?

  19. bigjig Says:

    not sure if we are flying or driving either way your offer is more than generous, fully appreciated!

  20. BrandonKayda Says:

    Palmer – Yeah it was my first Robbins read as well. Fantastic read.

    I think I’m gonna try Skinny Legs next

  21. butter Says:

    we’re def driving, its an 1.5 hr drive, unless you were going to have your helicopter grab us bigjig

  22. Robear Says:

    c, figured you’d be the one to catch my Cake comment.

    John (singer/writer) is a friend of a friend. Hung out with him a couple times. Really down to earth guy.

  23. butter Says:

    Neemor, you are and always have been our huckleberry


  24. KWL Says:

    bigjig, if you’re getting out the heli i could use a lift actually

  25. Boris Says:
