A Day Off

The Gorge '09 (Graham Lucas)

With another project in full-swing, I might have a few days off over the next couple weeks. Whether music or a video, however, there will always be something on the site worth checking out each and every day.


Jam of the Day:

Tweezer” 11.11.96 II

Fast-forwarding one week from yesterday’s Gainesville “Tweezer,” here is groove fiesta from Grand Rapids, Michigan. In only eight days, one can hear a significant progression from the Perazzo-assisted rhythms to intentional and slowed-down  Phish funk. Parts of this jam sound like they could be plucked from a 1997 show as the band’s new direction progressed each night of November ’96.

Tenax - 2.21.1997

Winter ’97 in Europe was the final step in discovering the pocket that Phish would explore for the next few years. This show in Florence came ten days before the band’s breakthrough in Hamburg, Germany on March 1, chronicled on Slip Stitch, and Pass. This second set featured dynamic and unfinished versions of “Antelope” and “Reba,” while the first half consisted of only six songs.

I: My Soul, Foam, Down with Disease, The Lizards, Crosseyed and Painless, You Enjoy Myself*

II: Ya Mar, Run Like an Antelope** > Wilson > The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony > AC/DC Bag,  Billy Breathes, Reba** > Waste, Prince Caspian

E: Character Zero

    @chuck d
    not that I doubt myself, but they always say choose “c” if you are unsure. in this case, I am sure that “c” is the correct answer

    Going to confront my darkside headon – currently downloading the recommended 12/31/2006 disco biscuits to see what’s what here..

    Listened to some goa trance earlier (in the form of Juno Reactor) and couldn’t make it through one song. Looking for more melody, for the most part.

    t3 gets +1 point for answering correctly and a gold star for recognizing “the pattern”


  7. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    If you are looking for classic bisco get something from the 99-01 years.

  8. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    YOu never said start Chuck.

    For the record I would have chosen C as well.

    Nice to hear Lycan. I do have to go places sometimes with the bane. It’s part of the reality of my life. Tho I jar it and then bury in trunk every single time. I’m sure itll be awhile til you mess with any of my tactics but this is more for everyone else…a little forethought goes along way…but still can’t beat the K-9.

    I love how the beer flavored water industry has gotten to where it is not about the beer but the bottle in which it comes.

    cold activated labels? fucking pfft
    spiral grooves to aid in pouring? double mother fucking pfft

  12. Gavinsdad Says:

    ^and when I say bury…think of Biggie… “with the gat in the Ac door panelin”

  13. kayatosh Says:

    GD: pleased to report I’ll be in the house 10/29 and 10/30. can’t wait to whip it, whip it good in AC. Maybe I’ll bring some dehydrated kale chips.

  14. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    Word t3!!!! LLFA
    why can’t you just touch the can and feel its temperature.

  15. Gavinsdad Says:

    Last note, I think: Paddy is a very tasty blended Irish, that I hadnt met until tonite. Will have to keep my eye out for it stateside.

  16. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    K-9s can be beat, but it is an effort not really worth it for the recreational contestants.

    The BS part is that the dog may not indicate anything and they will still dig in.

    Happened to a friend of mine on I40 in northen AZ.

    The stater called the local sheriff to bring his dog at 3:30 AM. the dog shows up walks the truck 6 times and the sheriff bails because he wants nothign to do with the withchunt. The stater finally ripped through his truck from back to front only to find his dugout in the cetner console. dip shit stater.

    The drug war may be the longest running open conflict we have running against ourselves.

    @kaya: boardwalk hall = roof blown off. Hope we can all find a little space to get down together.

  18. kayatosh Says:

    GD: yes, sir! I’ll be with palmer saturday night, no plans for friday night. plenty of free time on saturday. Would love to meet up. starting to get really excited.

    i have this bag that is cross micro fiber whatever its called, it was given to me,
    u can’t breathe through it, and if properly used ive heard its dog proof… not sure my self but it works well.

  20. Gavinsdad Says:

    PhamB: you know it. Those stories are legion and as we can all agree, a waste of all parties time and effort (that is unless you are dingbats like some of my friends who have not planned properly for their drive thru Nevada where, suffice to say, you better fucking have your shit tight if you wanna play with fire)

  21. Gavinsdad Says:

    @stup – please tell me you are all set for Broomfield.

  22. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:
