Type II Trivia: The Modern Era

10.31.10 Graham Lucas)

Come one, come all! If you’ve been paying attention for the past couple years, you’ll have as good of a shot at this contest as anyone. Today’s main event is “Type II Trivia: 3.0 Style.” That’s right, all ten audio clips come from this era since Phish returned in 2009. Nobody can claim noobership in this contest, as most of you have all these jams stashed away in soundboard quality on your hard drives and iPods…but can you place them? You can earn a total of twenty points for this contest by naming the song and date (1 point each) of each two-minute audio clip. In the event of a tie, I will devise some sort of tiebreaker. Hopefully this contest will shine a light on some highlights and forgotten moments of the last two years. There are no repeats of songs. Please email your entries to me by 12 pm Pacific tonight to have a valid entry. The winner will be announced either tomorrow or Thursday and will have the choice of any piece of merch on-sale for $7.77 in Phish’s Dry Goods Seven Below Sale, including CDs, t-shirts and more. Good luck to all, and have fun!

    This is actually pretty difficult. I have no idea what 10 is. I can’t quite point out 6 either, but it is so, so familiar. Same thing with 2/5/7. Damn percussive jams sounding similar! 😉

    I will figure this out

  2. BrandonKayda Says:

    Figured out 10 😀

  3. Foul_Domain Says:

    ^ Yeah, some of the ’09 jams found that ‘fall-back’ percussive niche.

    Makes it hard to pin down both the song and the date.

    These are tough!

  4. seif Says:

    Seven Below Sale! Nice. I just loaded up on some t’s for myself, the family and gifts! Love the “Sugra Shack Waffle” T-Shirt!!!!!

  5. phoammhead Says:

    great offering Mr.M – this goes to show that the boyz can and have gone deep in this era – life is good! 🙂

    If we fail this quiz do we lose our 3.0 merit badges?

    No but you will have to add custy to your handle

  8. phoammhead Says:

    we don’t need no stinkin’ badges! 😉

    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    Just wanted to stick up for my fellow custies. Without our hard earned money spent on lot many would not be able to follow this band.

    Great quiz Miner, although I would prefer a type 1 quiz. These jams that get outside the box are boring. I hate not knowing what the band is playing.

  10. Mitch Says:

    Well played miner. I saw Delaware and was gonna make the Garth joke.

    Morning BB

  11. P.S.H.S. Says:

    the tie breaker should be guessing who’s first show the dl’o’the day was.
    i think bk has an unfair ‘noob’ advantage. his head isn’t clogged with old timer jams, just chalk full of 3.0 noobian goodness. jk, bk, i know you know, you know i know you know too

  12. phoammhead Says:

    ^ i know you know, you know i know you know too

    wtf – lol!

  13. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Thanks Miner, cheers.

  14. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    merit badges ARE for noobs

  15. lastwaltzer Says:


    how many 1.0 and 2.0 shows did you see? Oh yeah I remember ZERO.

    So how many merit badges do YOU own? 😉

    Fucking Canadians can’t even remember their own history.

  16. DaNcInG fOoL Says:


  17. lastwaltzer Says:

    wait what

  18. DaNcInG fOoL Says:


  19. lastwaltzer Says:

    I insist, what.

    Morning BB-

    Miner- The trivia contests are cool despite my sucking at them.

    Plans are coming together for tix for NYE run. So giddy with excitement.

    Still toiling with leaves here. They are controlling my life right now. Gonna go fuck ’em up today. Maybe kicking the Chucktown2 and Bubba Kush for the final leg.

  23. notkuroda Says:

    hey BB, quick shoutout to Miner for the Download of the Day, and for the one who requested it. 2/13/93 was my first show too! Go figure, our lives changed so much on a chilly night in Delaware

  24. cal Says:

    Morning folks! Today’s JotD makes me wonder–could that be a candidate for best-ever “Pebbles”? Sure, there have been longer ones, but tighter, more powerful? I dunno.

    Not even gonna attempt the contest, but great idea. I’m guessing BK will have ’em all before I even peg one.

    Hope everyone had a great Turkey weekend. Aside from NFL, I did. Who cares, right?

  25. SillyWilly Says:

    Good morning, kidz

    so after some very close listening this morning, I’ve concluded that the audio challenge probably has jams from Lights, Tweezers, Ghosts, and Diseases.

    genius, right??
