  1. Robear Says:

    not bad @ duder,

    replace corned beef hash with bacon

    buttermilk biscuits with banana bread

    and AK-47 with the real OG, and you’d be at my place.

  2. Spasm Waiter Says:

    @sw- awesome man. I have only seen him once and loved it. He is a cool dude and really interesting player. Got a great sound that is distinctly Sco.

  3. EL Duderino Says:

    @ Robear

    The SLF made banana bread a few weeks back.
    A staple of goodness

  4. SillyWilly Says:


    yeah, and his band was right on, too. His drummer, Bill Stewart, was awesome as well.

    thanks! it definitely was a great night.

    breakfast so far:

    quad shot latte (brevi style – 1/2 -half and half – 1/2 1%milk)

    bong hit of early skunk

  6. EL Duderino Says:

    4 shot latte` = Legalized speed Me Likey

  7. Robear Says:

    I looked just like the ‘Shake Weight’ guys, when i was in high school.

  8. Mr.Miner Says:

    4 shot latte` = Legalized speed Me Likey

    ^ only way to go sometimes

  9. Mr.Miner Says:

    Beautiful Sunday — really couldn’t care less about the super bowl today. when your team isn’t in it, its just 5 hours of commercials with a play here and there…

  10. Mr. Palmer Says:

    As long as the steelers score ends in a 0, and the Pack end in a 1, i’ll be happy. Kinda leaning towards the Pack. Final score earns me a cool 1k. Thanks a nice Phish weekend somewhere nice for the wife and I.

  11. Gavinsdad Says:

    Wife did banana bread and duke bread yesterday too. Wrapping up dim sum with boys in Philly then off to auto show. Think I have a fever at this point but Ill lay dOwn for the game later.

    The real OG is akin tO the real gin

  12. poop goblin Says:

    Sour diesel with blonde moroccan breakfast ice tubes

    Sweet and sour. Delicious.

    I’m with miner
    No desire to watch the game
    Can’t even hit the qb no more. Lame

  13. SillyWilly Says:

    I just want Madison to riot tonight

    So I’m rooting for the Packers

    Wish I would have saved some of my cookie for the hangover tomorrow

    Rookie mistake

  14. EL Duderino Says:

    @ Palmer

    How was the dinner date last night?

  15. joe Says:

    …whiskey breath at work (sung to the tune of whistle while you work)

    GB 31
    Pitt 24

  16. poop goblin Says:

    Scofield still has all the licks

    Unequal distribution of sick guitar licks

  17. Robear Says:

    watchin’ Bob Marley from the Santa Barbara bowl on DVD.

  18. mitch Says:

    just woke up a bit ago. loving my new hood and the bars that come with it.

    time for hippy speedballs before i go drink beer all evening. dont care about the game either but def wanna get de-runk and watch commercials.

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    Yeah, poop, that was a hot show.

    We got that Green Tea

    Even the NPR crowd knew that was hot as fuck

  20. SillyWilly Says:

    I loved how scofield could reach down and adjust something or change his cord in the middle of an idea and pick up the idea again like nothing had happened

    And stewart was on fire. The way scofield and stweart fed off eachother without getting in eachothers way was really fun to see

  21. Jtran Says:

    Loading up the iPod for a week without changing it up. Doing a show from every year from 93 onwards

    Bomb Factory

    so far

  22. ThePigSong Says:

    fucking Wisconsin pwning Sparty right now.

    I’m a Green Bay fan, not a Wisconsin fan

  23. EL Duderino Says:

    Been drooling over these for the past hour!


  24. Jtran Says:

    7/6/98 and 7/17
    6/30/00 and Darien LP release

    Listening to a bunch of 2003 the last couple weeks so I skipped that year


    Might just go back in time from 92 backwards until I run out of space/shows

  25. Robear Says:

    Jtran, if I may suggest the 11/23/97 for your list? winston-salem i think. dark horse of the tour, IMO.

    +3 for 10/27/95 inclusion
