    I’ve got about a month off starting in two weeks. I can’t wait to participate like a mother fucker.

  2. Mike in Austin Says:

    I’ve been too fucked up to take a hit before though. Not looking for condescension. Just pity.

    When rainbows are flying out of my forehead, and I’m trying to remember if I am part of this existence, or this existence is part of me, I probably don’t need the extra push on the swing set. Although it would be appreciated.

    no doubt MIA

    you can tell how lifted I am by if I end up with 0 or 7 pre rolls at the end of the show.

  4. SillyWilly Says:

    I’m gonna miss chilling with you kids over NYE

    “rainbows flying out of my forehead”

    this always means I’m going SpillyWilly.

    watching the depressing failboat game. battle of the (shitty) birds.

    it’s all good w/ vino and weezo. vapes get you ripped. or so i’ve heard.

  6. kayatosh Says:

    no pets. just kids over here.

    pets? I don’t get it. we had a small fish tank when was a boy and even that was a pain in the ass. I’m down with OPP, though, provided it’s not some schitzo great dane.

  7. SillyWilly Says:

    I’m sitting in class with the first ever woman chair of the BIA

    she’s a badass.

  8. kayatosh Says:

    Badass International Association

  9. Mike in Austin Says:

    9:15 into this Hampton AC/DC Bag, and … wow.

    I love Page’s sound here. This is such a unique jam. I kinda wanna resend Miner my “500 word or less review”

    MiA’s submission – Hampton AC/DC bag

    “Wow. What the fuck. I mean, what the fuckin’ fuck. Holy shit. Wow. Oh yeah. Listen to Page. I mean … fuck. Listen to PAGE!”

    That’s as succinct as I can be.

  11. eljefe Says:

    MIA- I’ll double that WOW. Nice review… Heh Heh.

  12. SillyWilly Says:

    fun fact:

    The Seminole Tribe owns Hard Rock Cafe.

  13. Mike in Austin Says:

    Ha. El Jefe says it even more succinctly.

    Yes sir, I can nail that jam review in 3 letters.

    O.K then Mr, El Jefe. The letters are W.O. and W. Can you name that jam?

    That would “Hampton Bag Sir.”

    “Yes, yes. you are correct.

  14. eljefe Says:

    Missing both Tinariwin and Mickey Hart Band tonight. I need a new Secretary… Damn!
    Alex- “What Wow jam by popular Vermonter’s—”
    Me-“Alex, what is Hampton Bag?”

  15. angryjoggerz Says:

    I think it sucks that Silly Willy and Tela’s will not be with us at MSG. Just not right.

  16. angryjoggerz Says:

    I got hampton bag’d for the first time today in the car. Wow.

  17. Mike in Austin Says:

    (is a “name that tune” like such an old reference, nobody would get that joke)


  18. sumodie Says:

    Trey channels some serious Hendrix in this 97 Winston-Salem Gin

    (I tried to start at the beginning of the box set but couldn’t. ISO some crazy insane hendrix type jam that keeps looping in my head. It’s not this Gin, but what a Gin)

  19. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    Cats are the shit. Don’t have to walk them or anything and they’re entertaining and hilarious. Fuck fat cats though, can’t stand them.

  20. Mike in Austin Says:

    Except Garfield. That’s one funny fat cat. He eats LASAGNA!

    And without him it can be existential.


  21. Mike in Austin Says:

    MiA on Couch Terr…


  22. Mike in Austin Says:

    Gnite folks.

  23. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I’ve been stick on the 11.22.94 Funky Bitch jam for the last 2 days. Must have spun it 8 times. Becoming a favorite jam of mine. Saving my box set listening till it arrives at the end of the month.

  24. Willowed Says:

    Cats…..what’s the point?

    You mine as well get married and get bitched at all day. Cats are finicky little fuckers.

    Now dogs. They’re like your crew. Cool, chill and ready to fuck around.

    Dogs are for guys

    Cats are for women.

    The MSG Birds will get therimined. Fact.

  25. MrCompletely Says:

    last thing about cats and a major reason we like having em around

    those fuckers are HIGH-LARIOUS

    we got two real goofy ones. brother and sister. chunky girl and a rangy boy. both assassins in the field and good natured fools in the house.

    feline comedy show on a regular basis. for animals that seem to place a high value on dignity they sure do ridiculous things a lot
