Until Monday…

I’m on a long weekend with my family and will be back Monday with my regularly scheduled breakdown of summer’s second leg.

8.7.10 - The Greek (Wendy Rogell)


Jam of the Day:

Rock and Roll” 8.6.10 II

This underrated jam from The Greek followed up the opening night’s “Disease” as the second example of Phish’s newest jamming style. Look for Fishman’s dynamic rhythms that frame the band’s melodic interplay in the second half of the jam.

Official Telluride Poster (Stout)

A solid, straight-forward rock show in the mountains. “Carini” and “YEM” highlighted the second set, and “Mikes > Crosseyed” ain’t too shabby of a combo either.

I: The Squirming Coil, Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan, Ya Mar, Timber Ho, Let Me Lie, The Divided Sky, Walk Away, Roses Are Free, Limb By Limb, Bouncing Around the Room, Run Like an Antelope

II: Party Time, Mike’s Song > Crosseyed and Painless > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove, Destiny Unbound, Carini > Free > Heavy Things, You Enjoy Myself

E: Shine a Light

    it for sure doesn’t hold up to Telly night 1. That Sand is is dance party.
    yeah, that’s my point in that looking at that on paper it could have been nutty. sadly Mike’s, Paug, and Free had their nuts chopped off, and C&P didn’t break out of the song. Oh well, could have been worse. That show could have been in Cleveland instead of Telluride. 😉

    Everything that’s wrong with pop artists

    God I am so happy that my favorite band actually, you know, focuses on playing music rather than shallow publicity. When I hear about the masses of people going to pop concerts, I kind of feel sorry for them and think they need to see the light, but I also think that most people would rather be force-fed what’s “popular” than put in the effort to find something that actually has artistic value to them.

    I’ve lived with four people from ohio and all of them claim their respective corner is the greatest place in America. I don’t get it. .

    Willowed you got that Cleavland promo video?

    From B-rocks posting:

    “Katy Perry represents the perfect postmodern celebrity that realizes they have to engage in a 360-degree guerilla marketing campaign to really be a famous person,” said Piazza. “It’s not good enough these days just to have a talent, because we have new celebrities popping up every 10 minutes, which means that these people have to reinvent themselves constantly.”

    The road to reinvention, Piazza said, can range from joining a charity to “feeding scandalous stories to magazines. Anything that they know will keep their name in the headlines for the next five minutes and is going to promote their brand.”


    I liked where they imply that all celebrities are talented.

    I lived in Ohio for four years and I didn’t like it very much. The bright side was the Browns left Cleveland while I was there. Ah the memories.

    5 bucks says BTB thinks his respective nook in Ohio is the greatest place in America.

  9. tela'smuff Says:

    Good Morning, BB.

    The sun is shining and the weather is sweet in New England for the first time in 4 days and after 7″ of rain.

    Enjoyed reading back over last night’s discussion in regards to the article that I shared, pg. 31. Still am trying to track down a source to establish its legitimacy.

    But, overall, I applaud the boys for giving Live-Evil the finger and doing things on their own terms. Phish does not need new fans, they’re welcome of course, but they need to develop their new sound on their terms (i.e., spontaneous Island Tour). This is what Fall tour is all about.

    Actually, GavinsDad had it right during a brief discussion that I had with him last November at the Wachovia Center, preshow, when he said something to the effect that while it is great to have them back, the real magic will begin once they downscale the venues.

    Let the magic begin!

    morning folks

    just a quick netflix streaming rec for anyone interested.

    Ram Dass: Fierce Grace

    Its about Ram Dass’ recovery from his stroke in 1997. Its absolutely astounding. It traces his history from wealthy jewish kid in Boston to Harvard professor through LSD the 60’s, India and his work back at home when he returns. It is a documentary pulsing with love, if you are into that. Highly recommended.

  14. BeantownBoy Says:

    As my fiance, born and raised in Cleveland says, “Ohio is a great place to be from, but not to live”.

    I love visiting as the people are great, the farmers food is good, they take their brews seriously (Great Lakes); but I could only stand a year at OSU before I needed to flee to the west coast.

    Come on down to Cleveland town Everyone…….

  16. Dr. Pronoia Says:

    ^^ Fierce Grace is amazing! I still think back on that letter he wrote to the grieving parents…

    Wish he’d be more open though about the darker side of his spiritual accomplishments, and his sexual identity, but I guess that’s an unreasonably high standard of transparency to apply to anyone in the public eye!

  17. lastwaltzer Says:

    I will second TheMantee’s recommendation. I am by no means a spiritualist but that documentary is beautiful. Incredible story and inspirational.

  18. lastwaltzer Says:


    I know about his sexual identiy but whats this with the “darker side of his spiritual accomplishments”.

  19. BeantownBoy Says:

    Did anyone else see M. Moore’s “Capitalism” where they show that spoof of Cleveland’s Chamber of Commerce video whose primary theme was “We’re not Detroit”. Classic.

  20. tela'smuff Says:

    actually, living in Ohio isn’t that bad. I’ve lived in Arizona, Montana, Indiana, and Chicago. Each place I’ve enjoyed, but I always found the most comfort in Ohio. A good mix of people, a nice balance between East and West Coast mentality. We get a good representaion of all the 4 seasons. You can drive to a lot of great places within 5-6 hours. Cost of living is great, and we get a nice mix of musical influences from the blues to bluegrass. We have to deal with right-wing teabaggers more than i would like, and we don’t get to look at mountains, but it could be worse.
    I could live in Cleveland. Oh, wait, I already said that. How bout, it could be worse, I could live in Philly.

    after someone posted a link to page side high’s pins, i realized that my screen name is false advertising on my behalf. this name should be reserved for one of those guys or gals that work so hard to make such sweet little works of art. so, it’s up for grabs. (i’ll trade you my screen name for a david bowie pin)

    as for new names…. any suggestions?
    i like livefreeordie

  22. lastwaltzer Says:


    Philly>anywhere in Ohio….just saying.

  23. themanatee Says:

    whats with his sexual identity? gay? bi? straight?

  24. themanatee Says:

    Ram Dass is a vegetarian, and has also acknowledged his bisexuality.[3] In the 1990s, he became more forthcoming about sexuality [4] while avoiding labels and pointing out that who we are “isn’t gay, and it’s not not-gay, and it’s not anything—it’s just awareness.

    wikipedia sometimes helps.

  25. lastwaltzer Says:


    If I remember correctly he is gay and hid it for a long time. I could be wrong though.
