Miner’s Picks: Summer 2010 – Leg I

6.27.2010 - Merriweather (Graham Lucas)

After several weeks of listening and analysis in the Phisht Thoughts sound labs, the time has come to unveil the latest installment of “Miner’s Picks” for the first leg of summer tour. Because first sets and second sets contained such divergent vibes over the month, I’ve split the picks into a highlight-reel setlist, containing Set I, Set II, and an Encore. Though it was hard at times, I limited myself to one version of each song, so there are no repeats throughout this seven-plus hour compilation. With only a week and a half to go before The Greek kicks off Leg Two, here’s an audio retrospective of Phish’s first month of 2010. Enjoy the selections!

    I 100% agree Memento>>>>>>>>Inception. I don’t think Inception was his best movie by any means. I did enjoy it though. Memento is a brilliant flick

  2. Mr. Completely Says:

    no, that’s a “Film”

    movies are actually fun and you don’t have to take em too serious

    different strokes I guess

  3. Jtran Says:

    I think Beauty and the Beast was the first movie I saw in theatres

  4. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    ew cloverfield, talk about no characters

  5. Mr. Completely Says:

    see I thought Memento was overrated. good, clever movie inflated to greatness

  6. Mr. Completely Says:

    characters are overrated

  7. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    yeah agree BK.

    btw, i liked inception, just not as much as everyone else. it’s very good for what it is

    @C, i generally take cinema more seriously than most as it’s the path i’m trying to pursue

  8. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    characters are the worst

  9. BrandonKayda Says:


    What do you think about David Lynch’s movies? I love his stuff personally (except Inland Empire – but maybe I just need to see it again)

  10. Mr. Completely Says:

    ahhhh ok @f0ol

    I’m kind of the opposite

    Film overall is just not a medium that attracts me

    there are plenty of movies I love and even a few Serious Films that have moved me but in general it’s just not my thing

    however knowing you want to make art in that medium, I can understand your perspective a little better

    (I do know what you mean about the dialogue without even having seen it – not sure I’ll agree about that particular movie or not, but that annoys me too)

  11. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    love david lynch. for some reason painters almost always make great filmmakers

  12. Mr. Completely Says:

    perhaps the last Serious Film I saw that I really liked was The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

    exactly the kind of film I usually hate: glacially slow in pacing, with lots of unspoken tension and meaningful glances

    but I thought it was great for some reason

  13. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    word C, do you mostly watch american films though?
    i think my top 20 filmmakers might have 2 americans in it. robert altman would make it

    i’m not sure anyone can watch this http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092337/ and not be moved, unless they have no pulse

  14. BingosBrother Says:

    @C : in “light” of your Light>Waves yearning, I thought of you today when I read about this new book. Seems interesting.


  15. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    yeah that’s a good one C

  16. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    AWESOME track from the jesse james soundtrack http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3ZBuZnud_Y

  17. BrandonKayda Says:

    Mul. Drive is probably one of my favorite movies ever

  18. BingosBrother Says:

    Time to hit the hay. Rollercoasters in the AM. Woot! More flags, More FUN!

  19. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    have you seen blue velvet BK?

  20. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    cuz you should

    alright sleep time. peace guys

  21. BrandonKayda Says:

    Yes I have @Fool. Honestly, that one was a bit overhyped for me. I didn’t enjoy it as much as his others – although Hopper’s performance was incredible.

  22. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    Just opened up the computer to catch up (still early here), and first thing I read is

    Toy Story 3 was dank as fuck.

    Is there any way this isn’t the quote of the day? Awesome. Thanks Bingos.

  23. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    hopper’s the man.
    not as weird as lynch’s other stuff, but creepy as fuck

    eraserhead is great too, and elephant man

    straight story is his only one i didn’t like

  24. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    and yeah love mulholland drive of course

    though im pretty sure it makes no sense. was originally gonna be a new lynch tv series, but that fell through so he just made it all fit into one film

  25. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    everytime i write about mulholland dr my comment gets modded
