    The Harpua didn’t have political considerations. I was expecting some based on the reviews but Trey was just being silly 🙂

    Camel Walk felt really common in 2.0 so I’m stunned to check and see it was never played twice in a tour.

    me too T III.. I actually enjoyed the last issue a lot. But i’m not renewing crap.

    here’s a deal I will make though:

    1 Tela (but only one)
    1 Mexican Cousin (or all, same diff)
    as many Golgis as you’ll take off my hands

    for that, you can have your Maze(s)!

    Absolutely great time on the southern run – I rank them ATL 2, CLT, ATL 1, RAL.

    ATL 2 might be my all time favorite live concert experience; CLT is a top five.

    Of the 7 shows I saw – I rank them ATL 2, CLT, MPP 2, CHI, Blossom, ATL 1 and RAL.

    To me Trey’s dialogue during ATL 2 second set and KItN was pure phishiness at it’s best and meant to be fun and light, but yet dark, menacing and nasty at the same time. When Trey delivered his story and take on the books, he was smiling as far as I remember – his vibe was not serious or political to me at all. And, during most of the show, Trey was cutting up, smiling and laughing at Mike, Page and Fish – just loving it! This is what I’ve always loved about Phish – they’ve been doing this sort of non-serious delivery for a long time – ever since their beginning. Phish gives me what the rest of the world doesn’t – a time away from seriousness – this is why I spend my vacation time going to Phish shows these days – absolutely love the humor, wit and tongue-n-cheek vibe.

    Phish and the boyz do support certain political agendas from time to time and they have a foundation to help make those efforts – at least they support causes bigger than themselves and I believe they care about the state of our world. So do I. But, when they play music and get on stage, I believe they are about entertainment, creating vibes, eliciting emotions and taking a break from politics and seriousness, for the most part.

    I’m not saying that those of you who interpret something different are wrong. I’m enjoying hearing and listening to what some of you are saying on this BB. I’m just saying that for me, a Phish show is a break from politics and seriousness. We all win with Phish!!!

    I’ll be taking more vacation time at The Greek – can’t wait!!!

    on my way back from Cleveland yesterday I tried to stop at Rocco’s (don’t know if you liked Rocco’s but the combination of a big Phish weekend and South Bend made me think of you)

    it ended up being closed.

    i think its one of my favorite pizza places ever.

    zzyzx, did you get hold of Leo Weaver regarding the badge?

    “ATL 2 might be my all time favorite live concert experience” I think i’m with you on that.

  13. Lycanthropist Says:

    you got a deal T3

  14. Mitch Says:

    i’ve been getting rolling stone for free since hampton tix went on sale. keep asking me to reup but i buy tix to some random show and they start it up again.

  15. Lycanthropist Says:

    and yes Mr. P like food songs..

    Chance Fisher loves to group food songs

  16. BTB Says:

    I called 3 out of the first 4 for July 4th – PYITE, Forbin, Mockingbird

    I went nuts during Forbin, Roses, Camel Walk, Lizards, Carini, Harpua, Gin, Stash, Jiboo

    Just to name a few 😉

    will spin today.

    Rocco’s is the best pizza in the Bend and I don’t care what anyone else tries to tell you (I’m looking at you, Bruno’s). I especially love that when you order a beer they bring out the double duece (22oz.) and a tiny juice glass. very elegant.

    lately it seems to be closed as much as it is open, which makes it that much more desirable. thanks for whetting my appetite from 1,000 miles away.

    Morning Everyone….Board is on fiya this am…..have had leg 1 on shuffle last night at work, and will do the same today, making the shift fly by. Tight energetic playing throughout. SBD’s sound great, definitely a step above last years.

    Keep your head above the trolls and all will be well 🙂

    Great post Phoammead!

    I feel the same way about the escapism factor in re: to Phish. My sentiments exactly.

  21. sanchothehutt Says:

    Robe, I didn’t mean to make it personal. I was catching up on posts last night and saw you ask if I ever bothered to read Miner’s post. Caught me off guard, and I overreacted. I’m Sorry.

    Can we bury this thing? Don’t need it lingering.

  22. BTB Says:

    Mike played at a Bernie Sanders rally in VT

  23. Robear Says:

    plenty of top shelf this summer. the second shelf in my mind is REALLY good too.
