    llfa @ silly. we held it down for the couch surfer’s.

    i’m going to shy away from predictions for the future. the re-education of the fan base is in full swing again. hope you all took notes.

    mitch, i said i had a life evolving experience at the 4th of july show. the ‘kitno’ was part of it.

    someone responded that i should stay off the bane and read some books if i thought it was that special. claimed there was no way it had any political connotations. the person had been dissing me tongue in cheek in the morning. i never mentioned his name in any posts, or any questions that i layed out. however, he grabbed my name and a nick name, and disrespected me while i was not around.

    same someone ought to see my reading list.

    lycan might be onto something. don’t think i’m feisty, just sick of some of the stuff i read. i love miner’s posts, but some of the comments make my skin crawl.

    can we get a full story on setting the neighbors house on fire?

  4. Lycanthropist Says:

    well you know we all still love you Robear

  5. c0wfunk Says:

    @rob I have noticed a new .. uhm .. passion? in your posting lately. Seems you used to be more of a peacemaker. I’m all for it though I love a good disagreement! As long as it doesn’t devolve to insults etc.

  6. Lycanthropist Says:

    I am still kind of baffled by the 2 Camel Walks and the 2 Telas this tour, but the 1 Maze.

    Thats pretty unpredictable in my book.

    FTR, I would trade both camels and both telas for 2 more mazes

  7. Robear Says:

    Mike, Trey, Fish, and Page,

    Thanks for another incredible tour. You layed it on the line for us, and played ‘happiness’. It’s working. People left the shows with more joy than they walked in with.

    In a hard economy, the Waterwheel still had some amazing nights. We’re able to inject needed money into some really small non-profits, that have seen their funding slowly dry up. We also made some real connections between fans and the local groups in their area, for post show follow-up.

    Just beside myself with how awesome the return of Phish has been for the collective soul!

    Enjoy your month off. Enjoy your journey west!

    @mitch – only bought ’em in NYC once in the last year – small wonders. 10 was too much for me – that’s a face value Phish ticket every 6 days!

  9. Lycanthropist Says:

    not really sure how people can cough up 10 bucks for smokes. 😉

    Thats why I quit..

    not for health but for my pocket.

  10. Mitch Says:

    no political connotations huh? killin in the name of says what? how is that not political? has anyone seen a rage show before? i saw tom morello solo acoustic at bonnaroo in 06 i think and felt like i was at a political rally. “this land is your land, this land is my land” sing alongs and shit.

  11. c0wfunk Says:

    @lyc I think i was *more* surprised by camel walk sunday because it had already been played. When’s the last tour w/ 2 camel walks? With any luck tunes like that will just be part of the deal and not sought after.

    Tela atl Sunday got a big reception but at MPP on sunday people barely noticed and it turned into a bit of a beer refill / piss break for many on the lawn at least.

  12. Mitch Says:

    i dont smoke but my girl started back up recently. great time for that.

  13. Robear Says:

    lol @ Lycan’s trading!

    i’ve seen maze dozens of times. only caught a handful of Tela’s, including miami and atl’s stellar versions. got my first Camel Walk.

    so sorry, i’m not taking that exchange!

    (but would love to have gotten a maze down south, no doubt!)

  14. c0wfunk Says:

    I quit smoking when packs started being consistently over 2 bux. If I coudln’t put together spare change for cigs it wasn’t worth it.

    I always felt my smoke should pack a buzz, but that’s just me 😉

  15. SillyWilly Says:


    I don’t know if I ever said thanks for the way you treated me at Blossom. you’ve got a positive energy that surrounds you.

    I don’t mean to make you feel like a big brother, but I had a blast watching you work the crowd for the WW and the way you got everyone pumped for the show.

    I didn’t see what this flaming was all about, but we all know you around here and we know what kind of person you are.

  16. Lycanthropist Says:

    I like Camel Walk a good deal, so I am glad to see that one breaking free of the one per tour mold.

    Tela, I am either way on that. I know its rare, so it would be nice to catch one and cross it off my list.

    But I have yet to catch a Maze, so thats taking priority.

    And I just absolutely love Maze.

  17. Robear Says:

    mitch, Miner’s post yesterday said it had definite political connotations.

    I said the same thing, but a couple cats jumped on me for saying it.

    I posed a question, do some of you cats read miner’s post, or just skip to the comments? I asked because no one was challenging miner’s take on the song, just mine.

    someone took it personal and tried to call me out. it’s over, flames out.

    read back when you’re REALLY bored.

  18. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Mitch- no doubt the song has political connotations. The debate got a bit heated on whether Phish was making that same statement or just playing their usual “tongue in cheek” Harpua silliness. Probably a little bit of both from what i’ve read from those there.

  19. Lycanthropist Says:

    Rage simply cannot be played without political connotation

  20. c0wfunk Says:

    @rob – I want to make sure you didn’t think I was part of that .. I did say in the moment it didn’t feel political to me, and was rather more phishy than political..

    anyway moment’s way gone just want to make sure I didn’t piss you off too.. if you read back at one point I did specifically say you were right if it helps 😉

  21. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    funny. I attract mazes like bears to butter. definitely one of those integrity of sample size things (lots of mid-90s shows). it is, however, one I still enjoy every time.

    but I’m not willing to give up Camel Walk for it. No sirree.

  22. shpongleyez Says:

    the sbds are obviously a LOT better than they were post hampton, but does anyone else think page’s clav (and maybe some of his other equipment) is still WAY too low in the mix? piano sounds fine…

    stoked for berkeley!!!

  23. c0wfunk Says:

    no way I’d trade my camel walk for another maze either. Sorry lyc.

  24. kayatosh Says:

    I feel, robear. Nice to hear the bear roar when appropriate.
    that dude was out o line.

    you don’t tell someone to lay off the bane and read more. that’s insulting.
