More Type II Trivia

11.20.09 (W.Rogell)

Last week’s contest seemed to be fun for the whole family, so let’s get in one more round before tour starts next week! The rules, re-posted from last week, are as follows:

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 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!

    Evening all,
    It may have been mentioned here already, but I’m not sifting through 22pps of boarding with my PC crawling like it does. . . anyhoo, anyone catch the PBS special last night “The 10th Inning”? Chalk Dust Torture was featured as an audio clip, just when Boston beaned the Yanks’ ARod back in ’04 and the infamous brawl started. Funny how Chalk Dust always hits the mainsteam media with a sports clip.

    KP …

    Interesting theme you brought up today. While not identical, I too am experiencing some issues around the topics you mentioned. I thought things were supposed to get easier in a way. In fact this past year has been one of the toughest in my relationship. The other year was when I was being non committal, afraid of committment etc etc.

    Anyways, I am not going to divulge any more than I just did, but you aren’t alone.

  9. EL Duderino Says:

    You guys will come next year for the Raleigh, Charlotte, amd ATL dealy.

    Mark It 8 Dude!

    Thanks willowed for the offer.
    We have an extra bed and bath here too.

  10. phoammhead Says:

    shebang = fall tour and new years run!!! 8)

  11. EL Duderino Says:

    You married phoammhead?

  12. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Still digging Miners NY mix. 12.29.97 Tube into the 12.30 .95 Hood. Doesn’t get much better. Best Hood i’ve ever heard.

  13. phoammhead Says:


  14. Mr.Miner Says:

    anyone need night 2 Broomfield?

  15. EL Duderino Says:

    @ Miner

    Would you be so kind and grace us with your presence over at the beach house in Charleston, SC. (Isle of Palm), on Saturday?
    I’d be cool to meet you and everyone else I’m sure feels the same…

  16. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    As a direct result of my pushing the limits of what may be acceptable for phish travel this past tour.

    I got new limits.

    Mrs. Berzerker: You have gone too far and taken me with you.
    Me: Your point?
    Mrs. Berzerker: Maybe you shoudl consider hitting shows solo with friends. It’ll be easier on our travel budget, plus you may be able to get a boondoggle run covered by your company.
    Me: So you won’t go with?
    Mrs. Berzerker: Sometimes, but not all the time. You must make better decisions though.
    Me: So no more pissing in the garbage cans on the concourse of the venue during halftime?
    Mrs. Berzerker: That would be a good start.
    Me: what about the deep well sinks in the janitor closets, usually there are not lines.
    Mrs. Berzerker: Really?
    Me: Come on the lines can be rough to wait in. I could do more drugs and not drink as much but then I lose the power of verbs.
    Mrs. Berzerker: Verbs are important, I understand. Just make better decisions.
    Me: Seems like this conversation may prove to have been a poor decision.
    Mrs. Berzerker: Stop being melodramatic. Let’s talk abou tit the next time tour is announced. YOu must present some element of realism in your presentation.
    Me: So no video mash-up.
    Mrs. Berzerker: WTF is that?
    Me: Nevermind, I put in for NYE 4 tickets you think the kids will want to go?
    Mrs. Berzerker: Holy Fucking Shit! You Dick!
    Me: Your brother has gotten us a hook up for tickets and it’s a Thurs, Fri Sat run. We could be back in time for work Monday.
    Mrs. Berzerker: Not thinking about it now. Put the numbers together. what about skiing with the kids over the holidays?
    Me: Three years in a row of good skiing in AZ is one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse when shoudl really try to see more phish before the others show up.
    Mrs. Bezerker: Touche, I still need time to consider everything and you should too.
    Me: OK

    I would love to get in some more classic locales of lore. Next summer perhaps as I have pseudo permission.

  17. EL Duderino Says:

    We’re gonna have a meet-up.

  18. Nagarjuna Says:

    @miner – I’d love a night 2 broomfield if you’ve got one!

  19. phoammhead Says:


    why you ask?

  20. Gavinsdad Says:

    Would love to get to hang with the Southerners and ESP the Southwesterners (Pham B is our lone wolf). I keep hoping the Gorge will pull many of us together but I wouldn’t spit at a Ventura dealie either.

    I specifically made an effort for NC this Summer…for venue change of pace and to meet nice new peeps…a solid handful of em.

    Where’s Dyda? It’s hockey season.

  21. EL Duderino Says:

    Being a Lawyer I just assumed maybe you were married.
    My Bad

  22. phoammhead Says:

    @El Dude

    no sweat . . . no, being a lawyer is probably why i’m not married! jk 😉

    not married, but i’ve got a sweet slf who loves phish as much or more than me and it’s really good! 🙂

  23. phoammhead Says:

    ^she beat me on Miner’s last trivia!

  24. Hoedown Says:

    Cheers to our women loving The Phish and partaking in our debauchery, and as always thank you Mr. Miner for creating this safe haven. I’ve been taking notes today from you fellas re: family life, as my wife is dying for the next step-children! See ya’ll in AC!

  25. willowed Says:

    There’s nothing better than a fine lady who truly embraces the jam.

    Not only that….keep her mouth shut until set break.

    if you find one…..scoop her up.

    I did
