    Jeez…7/31/09 Drowned is sloppy as fuck…but Trey gets it together halfway through…I hope this jam and the > into Crosseyed is as good as the board hype and my previous relistens were…

  4. BrandonKayda Says:

    I LOVE that groove they drop into before Catapult in the Split->Catapult from Cypress. Gorgeous.

    You think these shows will be like the Gorge shows last year? I have a feeling the Greek/Telluride shows are going to be huge

    Evening, urrybody.

    Fired up for east coast prime time couch tour. Curtain opener sounds about right.

    So I have this high school friend…Jamie Janover…for any of you serious Phish geeks, he’d sat in and played digeridoo with the Phish way back in the early days…he’s always known Fishman…because he’s a percussionist. He is also an extremely talented hammered dulcimer player (!!) and has side projects like EOTO, and Zilla with the String Cheese guys. he also sits in on Everything Orchestra gigs.

    I just saw he was tagged in a few pics on FB from Hornings in OR. the setting looked really lovely…but i would have to eat some bullets within 2 hours of being there. I’m sorry, but for me, I can’t deal with that band, nor can I deal with any sort of jammy music crossing over with a Burning Man context (fire people, hulas, glowsticks being spun on long ropes, etc etc). I can totally coexist with those people but I don’t seek that scene out that much any more. Wonder how many Hornings there have been? The lineup was what you’d expect and it was sold out so props to them for creating a nice scene for themselves…I just cant deal.

    especially with the Phish about to blow the Greek up. the phish would souplex the cheese and then piledrive them and then camel clutch them in a cage match. I never got any domination vibes from the Cheese (nota bene: i’ve never seen them live…just videos…which i watch with a neon blue furry top hat on) and all i get from the Phish is “we will burn this venue down to the ground” vibes.

    rant over.

    @gdad…I met JJ at the HSMF years ago! Prob ’01, my first year there (last was ’04 [I’m old])

    Interesting dude, for sure.

  9. butter Says:

    nice try GD ….we know you are a closet hula hooping String Cheese guy 😉

  10. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    the loudest critics are secretly the biggest fans, right? 😉

  11. gavinsdad Says:

    word @ voopa…guy has really chased his music dreams…my early hs dead tour gang…a couple of whom i still catch shows with…we used to see shows with jamie late 80s (dead) and earliest 90s (phish)…he has definitely chased his dreams and he did it with a wildly unorthodox instrument so…props to him. i’ve seen the dude busk with the dulcimer all over the place…gd lots, cape cod, bread and puppet, etc…he definitely lives and breathes music.

  12. garretc Says:

    It’s true Butter! I saw the hula hoops in his basement. Tried to see if he’d tip his hand, said “oh, your kids like hula hooping, eh?”, but gdad was all “uh, yeah, uhm, they love those things, but uh, I should put these away, could, you know, break or something.” Never saw em again the rest of my stay…

    It’s not proof, per se, but, well, I report, you decode…

  13. garretc Says:

    Sorry, that should be decide, not decode, as I feel my post was fairly understandable…

  14. gavinsdad Says:

    ok ok ok….Hornings was sick…my face was painted like a meerkat….cape was teal crushed velvet…tye dyed union suit…and lots of amyl nitrate….i made love to a redwood and also acted out a scene from Thunderdome during SCI’s final encore. you guys got me..that’s the real reason you wont see me at the Greek tomorrow. peace bros!

  15. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    wow. that was very descriptive. very well played, sir.

  16. joe Says:

    countdown clock now officially under a day. I like picturing our friends
    from here all getting their bags packed and going out the door to their planes/trains and automobilies, cars/trucks/busses.

  17. butter Says:

    it feels much better to come clean, right

  18. butter Says:

    i’m sitting here wondering if i really need this much herb for Telly?

    i think the answer is “of course i do”

  19. angryjoggerz Says:

    Can I get a motherfukin HELL YEZ up in this place?!

  20. joe Says:

    damn you people with your overabundance of herb and your groovy laid back west coast and rocky mountain phish shows.

    sorry, woke up on wrong side of the bed this morning and haven’t been able to turn it around. feeling sorry for myself and reading about people getting ready to throw down is giving me more ammo for the pity party.

    really, what I mean to say is enjoy and don’t choke on so much herbs 🙂

  21. angryjoggerz Says:

    Joe, sending you a big virtual hug, like it or not.

  22. joe Says:

    do people really paint their faces like meerkats for cheese shows?

  23. joe Says:

    that visual (the meerkats) might have just improved my mood 1000%

  24. voopa Says:


    How was that? Gotta pack ‘n’ shit for the weekend, but the 7/31/09 Tweezer keeps saying “smoke another bowl”

  25. voopa Says:

    Oh, sorry Joe
