Mud Island

Taking this week’s “Jam of the Day” theme right through “Weekend Nuggets,” this installment is all about ‘Tweezers.” This Memphis show from Summer ’95 contains the “Mud Island Tweezer,” one of the most extended and iconic explorations of the song in their career. At a time when the band continued pushing boundaries of jam-length and abstraction, this “Tweezer” clocked in at over 50 minutes, but when listening, boredom never comes into play. One of the most famous versions taboot, if you haven’t heard this, clear an hour of your time, sit back, and relax. Phish dropped one for the record books on the banks of the Mississippi.

Type II Trivia Results: With little competition on day 2, “Rippin'” Ross Bellenoit ran away with this contest with a remarkable 26 out of 30 points! Identifying every track and only missing a couple specific dates – what I thought was most impressive is that he only missed one year out of ten. By blowing away the competition, Ross wins his choice of CD: Trey’s TAB at the Tabernacle or Mike’s Moss. Kudos, Ross! Jeff D. put in a  a noble effort, nailing half the selections, while Brad P. rounded out the double-digit scorers with 11. The entire results  and answers are below. (If your name is not listed, it is because you scored no points. Better luck next time.) Thanks for playing!

  1. Ross B. – 26 pts
  2. Jeff D. – 15

  6. joe Says:

  8. EL Duderino Says:

    I’m watching the worst game of the NFL season thus far 🙁

  9. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Halycon- Giants receivers are killing Eli again. The 1 int by the goal line was inexcusable. That being said, they can tie it up here after playing awful in the 1st half.

  10. Mr.Palmer Says:

    ….and they just did!!!

  11. BeantownBoy Says:

    This Pats vs. Bills matchup is pretty interesting.
    It looks like the Bill’s Fitzgerald is gonna to optimize the chance to start.
    3 Pumpkin ales down and 3 to go in this sixer.

  12. jtran Says:

    The pats need a defense

  13. jtran Says:

    Nfl Sunday ticket at my friends is sick though

  14. kenny powers Says:

    Wow, masterful field-goal run w/ less then a minute on the clock by the Pats. however they should be crushing this team, esp at home.

  15. Mr.Miner Says:

    trivia winner – littlerollingthunder – posted his first BB post on p.10

  16. vegas wolfmans Says:

    LRT FTW!!

    Not sure why I play fantasy football. Every damn year I drive myself crazy with this shit.

  17. BeantownBoy Says:

    Damn…that was vintage Pats right there on that classic Brady>Moss hookup.

  18. jtran Says:

    What a throw Brady

  19. BeantownBoy Says:

    Wow…and then Spiller runs it back 95 yards for his second TD of the day and of his NFL career.

    Pats Defense: They are who we were afraid they were.

  22. Dr. Pronoia Says:

    My fantasy team sucks. Chris Johnson has been a big disappointment the past few weeks. I wish I could trade him for some MSG tickets…

  23. BeantownBoy Says:

    Nice. Just scored a $58 direct flight to AC from Boston on Spirit Airlines and Brady and the Pats scored again in the time that it took to book my ticket.

    AC can’t get here soon enough.

    Also, it looks like the Bills’ Fitzgerald just had his bubble popped with that interception.

  24. Mitch Says:

    KP, the reason CK5 might seem a bit off is because since the comeback he’s using a new rig that has different hesitation. so he has to work on a whole new timing plan. i usually think he’s pretty on.

    Dr P and all other NYCers,
    do you have any friends that need a roommate or are looking to move soon? looking to setup shop in BK and would like a partner in crime for the hunt.

  25. Summer98 Says:

    Hey all. Getting plans worked for NYE. Is the consensus that 12/31 and 1/1 will be uber high demand? Trying to figure out how many people to organize for the lottery. Does anone anticipate a problem getting rid of extras?
