Weekend Nuggets: Two Tuesdays In June


Official Portsmouth Poster

Although the Tuesday night shows of tour didn’t explode like many expected, they still produced some legitimate highlights. Stellar versions of “Bathtub Gin” and “Slave” came out of Portsmouth, Virginia’s first set, while an engaging sequence of “46 Days > Idea > 2001 > Simple” provided the meat of of the second. Canandaigua saw the most significant, non-traditional “Mike’s Groove” of tour, underlined by “I Am the Walrus > Weekapaug,” and also featured a laid-back, jam-filled first set that fit the cool New York evening like a glove.

  2. Robear Says:

    i’ll put in a $20 spot @ miner

  3. whole tour! Says:

    movies are too expensive and too hit or miss these days.
    Nothing worse than paying like $20 to be disappointed when you can wait like 4 months and it will be on HBO.

  4. Mr. Completely Says:

    I actually had some friends who really disliked Eternal Sunshine, basically I think they are Jim Carrey haters or something, and were maybe in a bit of a Charlie Kaufman backlash (which I share), so if anything I went in not expecting too much and was pleasantly surprised

  5. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    yeah C, i understood, just typed my comment before i saw that you said you saw it again

  6. DaNcInG fOoL Says:


  7. whole tour! Says:

    re-listening to raleigh. Holds up well. Still digging those bustouts.

  8. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    the only time i’ve ever heard eternal sunshine bashed is with the criticism that jim carrey was wrong for that role, which is utter bullshit.

    what do you mean charlie kaufman backlash? adaptation, BJM, ESOTSM = all amazing

  9. Mr. Completely Says:

    haha yeah I saw how that went

    it just seems like every movie that’s slightly creative or intelligent is hyped as being some life changing work of art, it’s annoying as hell


    the Miner In A Toga fund is at $35 and counting!

  10. Mr.Miner Says:

    there is no way i would ever wear a toga to a phish show. the wagering can stop.

  11. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    human nature = trash, synecdoche new york = pretentious/tedious

  12. Mr.Miner Says:

    human nature = trash

    ^ untrue. love it

    synecdoche new york = pretentious/tedious

    ^ a bit overindulgent, but excessively good.

  13. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @C, tarkovsky’s the mirror = a life changing work of art.

  14. Mr.Miner Says:

    i love it all though 😉

  15. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    i wish synechdoche turned out better than it did, cuz charlie seems to be a little put off by its lack of critical success

  16. Mr. Completely Says:

    well I feel like Kaufman writes about the same self referential ideas too much and has become thematically repetitive in places

    I really disliked Adaptaton quite intensely, half due to Nic Cage, one quarter due to what I felt was just a very overly cute structure which wasn’t as clever as it thought it was, one quarter due to the ending which I just thought was abysmal

    Malkovitch is a clever movie though, cute

    the whole selfreferential metanarrative thing just got to be a bit much, it’s not actually that original an idea outside of mainstream film, so that’s where the backlash comes from

  17. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    what’s wrong with being thematically repetitive completely?
    most writers tend to be: kafka, camus, sartre, kerouac, celine, etc, etc

  18. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    completely, do you have any thoughts on fellini? (my favourite filmmaker)

  19. vegas wolfmans Says:

    I didn’t hit a ton of shows in 2.0, but I did do Chi>Cinci in ’03 and highly dug all three. Funny that y’all have been listening back to this tour because that is exactly what I’ve been doing over the last several days. Already very familiar with Winter tour, anybody got some hot summer ’03 recs/ reminders for me (aside from 7/15 and 7/29&7/30)? Much obliged.

  20. Mr. Completely Says:

    writers can be that way

    I just get bored of it and stop reading them

    I’ve never read Celine but all of the others you mention I did find tedious after a book or 2 for that exact reason

    really great writers don’t do that, or their themes are so huge that they can stand up to it, like James Joyce or Pynchon

    I like it when writers have more than one Big Idea

    …but that’s why I liked Eternal Sunshine so much, it was a nice pivot point for him, similar to his other work in some ways but in a fresh light

  21. Mr. Completely Says:

    gotta drop out of the art discussion and work for a bit

    @vegas, I asked the exact same thing yesterday and in addition to those Miner hit me with 7/25 and 7/26

  22. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    that plus michel gondry’s amazing visual style on ESOTSM

    celine’s ‘journey to the end of the night’ is probably my favourite book ever

    my top 5 films of the decade are something like (off the top of my head and in no order)
    eternal sunshine
    diving bell and the butterfly
    4 months, 3 weeks, 2 days
    y tu mam tambien
    pans labyrinth

  23. vegas wolfmans Says:

    Excellent. Thank you sir. I was at Atlanta 7/26/03, but have never listened to that Charlotte 7/25 show. Downloading now.

    I thought Eternal Sunshine was an excellent film and felt bad for those that couldn’t get past the Jim Carrey in a serious role hangup. Contempt prior to investigation. Their bad.

  24. Mr. Completely Says:

    oh and IT obviously

    I assume you were including that

  25. whole tour! Says:

    @ vegas wolfman’s

    for some dope summer 03 action…hit up the southern run. Charlotte and Atlanta were ragers. second set from Raleigh 03 ain’t too shabby either.
