Type II Trivia Test

10.30.98 - Indio, CA (Wendy Rogell)

Today we have a game show on Phish Thoughts – the place where the fun never ends. Phish’s jamming has often been described in layman’s terms as ‘type I’ ( contained jamming that adheres to song structures and chord progressions) and ‘type II’ (open jamming that leaves any semblance of the song it came from). Today’s game centers on Phish’s open jamming. Below are ten audio clips – each a few minutes long, and here is the task. You can gain 3 points per audio clip – 1 for identifying the year, 1 for identifying the song, and 1 for identifying the date – for a total of 30 possible points. The winner will win their choice of a “TAB and the Tabernacle” CD or Mike Gordon’s “Moss,” to be delivered in the near future. Please email your entries with ten numbered lines, one for each guess. All entries must be emailed to mrminer@phishthoughts.com by 7 pm pacific on Friday (tomorrow) night. If multiple entries nail a perfect score, the earlier entry will take the prize. Without further ado, here are the audio clips. Good Luck!

    PDX BBers….and yoga lovers….attention
    from Stumptown Yoga Newsletter…

    Speaking of passion, Chris Calarco is enthusiastically merging his love of yoga with his love of Phish in a November workshop. Chris has been practicing yoga steadily for 5 years and living in Portland for 10. He completed his first vinyasa teacher training in town at the Lotus Seed School and his second at Yogaworks in the Iyengar style in Manhattan. Beginning to apply Anusara principles to his practice has recently deepened his appreciation for yoga’s ability to transform the energetic and physical bodies. With an athletic background in the traditional American sports of basketball, football, and baseball, Chris has found yoga to be the perfect union of mind, body, and spirit for which he has long been searching. Yoga, for Chris, is about the process of unending growth, new awareness and the self-study of consciousness. Chris is so psyched to devote himself to yoga practice and teaching full time and looks forward to a full life of learning and sharing asana, philosophy, and meditation. Chris has a hard time resisting his temptation to share his love of diverse music during classes.

    Chris has developed workshop to share his musical passion: Surrender to the Phlow: Vinyasa Yoga and Phish. Do you love Phish? Do you love Yoga? Come and share a vigorous Vinyasa Yoga Saturday set to the full sonic spectrum of a live Phish mix!

    Saturday November 20th 2-4:30p

    – mimic the musical ebb, flow, power and rejuvenation that only the spiritual practices of yoga and The Phish can allow.
    – practice warrior poses in the depth of a Tweezer jam
    – shine your light toward the heavens in a backbend through Harry Hood
    – rest in the majestic grace of Trey’s Slave to the Traffic light solo
    – discuss how the practices of yoga and Phish both call to the seeker us and how the experiences can serve similar functions in our lives.
    – We will close practice with a 15 minute meditation to the sounds of Phish’s classic 1998 Ambient set from The Lemonwheel.

    $15 per person
    a six-month yoga practice is recommended for this workshop
    pre-registration recommended: contact info@stumptownyoga.com for more information.

    Let the combination of Phish and yoga take you deeper into your heart, body, and spirit. Chris invites you to bring ideas and passion.

  7. halcyon Says:


    I am interested in your playlist for your class. Hopefully you can provide a breakdown of it after the class.

    Stock shares of 5 hour energy are rising after Miner’s huge purchase to keep him going through New Years ….

  8. MisterChristian Says:

    And whereabouts might one purchase these tickets, Mr. M? Cause if I’ll be around, why not, eh?

  10. P.S.H.S. Says:

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

    10/10/10 will be my tenth show!!!! wooo hooooo!

  12. phoammhead Says:

    All in all I think the New Years showz announcement will take some pressure off the demand for AC tix – anyone disagree?

  13. ThePigSong Says:

    ^ agreed completely

    fall tour stress was almost completely relieved this afternoon

  14. Phamily Berzerker Says:

  17. phoammhead Says:

    phoamm at gmail dot com

  18. phoammhead Says:


    limit 4 per night, yes?

  19. garretc Says:

    Yup, 4 per night limit

  20. garretc Says:


    For $ reasons I’m just hitting NYC, so you can take me out of consideration for needing a Worcester crash place, but thanks anyways!

  21. Mr.Miner Says:


    ^ Hallucinogen / Infected Mushroom on -sale.

    IM used to be amazing, but have completely sold out and make crap, custy trance now. They are co-billing an entire US tour for tix sales i’d imagine.

  22. garretc Says:


    I assume you feel the $87 will be completely worth it? Think it’s likely to sell out?

  23. Mr.Miner Says:

    its $87?

  24. jdub Says:

    Halcy, I am attempting to contain my anticipation of Brimfilled, I am just delighted with the thought of spending 3 days in the foothills of the Rockies with family, friends, and Phish.

    I like the way Phish is playing their hand for Halloween. Not one peep from them.

    Would be people be upset if they forgo the typical costum for something completely unpredictable? A part of me hopes they get real creative with it and drop the unexpected.

  25. garretc Says:

    Yup, cheapest tix are 87, so sez ticketmaster
