Five Favorites From Summer ’95

Jones Beach — Summer '95

Tweezer” 6.14 II, Memphis, TN

The Mud Island “Tweezer,” a classic and personal favorite that—I feel—is captivating for the entire 50 minutes.

Runaway Jim -> Free” 6.15 II, Raleigh, NC

Phish took this doggie a long way from home in Walnut Creek, another classic rendition.

David Bowie” 6.24 II, Philadelphia, PA

In a summer that contained countless standout “Bowies,” this version from the Mann Music Center is among the elite.

Down With Disease -> Free” 6.26 II, S. Springs, NY

One of the finest sequences of music from a spectacular summer—a two-pronged, psychedelic monstrosity.

Stash” 6.17 II, Gainesville, VA

A mind-numbing version from that closed the first set on the fifth night of a five night run. And it wound up being the highlight of the show.

    Planetary Alignment occurring. Last night’s sunset was just incredible. Venus, Jupiter, and the moon in alignment, and mercury was on the horizon as the sunset. I pulled over thinking what was mercury was a plane. Had my google sky map open to confirm it was mercury. Love the sky map app.

    Hope everyone gets to check this out. If not there is a live feed from the slooh observatory.

  3. SillyWilly Says:

    Good morning everyone

    hope you’re doing well

    getting ready to head out to one of the local brewery’s Bockfest.

    weather is cooperating, high of 29 and the sun is out

    very wisco thing to do

    I don’t get to smack talk very much A-10 basketball, but GO UMASS over Dayton today. 🙂 not really UNC/Duke

  5. SillyWilly Says:

    Hahaha

    right on, Joe, getting the mid-major smack going

    Flyers have struggled lately. Hot start but they’ve died down the stretch.

    go UD.

  6. phoammhead Says:

    bockfest sounds good . . . enjoy, silly.

    when i go to brew fests . . . usually have a great time up to the point that it gets pretty ugly

  7. phoammhead Says:

    this is pretty cool

  8. SillyWilly Says:

    yeah, Phoamm, I’m anticipating a shit show

    I won’t jinx myself by saying it won’t happen to me, but I’ve got my best game face on

    plus, I’ve got the ol’ wisconsin secret:

    “Keep eating brats and cheese, and you’ll pull through.”

  9. phoammhead Says:

    ^good strategy

  10. phoammhead Says:

    as for dates . . . after portsmouth and before deer creek seems to be up for grabs a bit.

  11. SillyWilly Says:

    Blonde Dopple Bock on tap today Phoamm

  12. phoammhead Says:

    i’m not a big blonde guy except when it comes to women . . . before bek, of course. 😉

  13. SillyWilly Says:

    haha, Phoamm

    BEK would be awesome no matter her hair color.

    and yeah, in Wisconsin, the German styles are king

  14. angryjoggerz Says:

    Not sure why but the blonde ladies just never have done anything for me. I am blonde proof and it makes them fucking nuts. I just look right through them.

  15. angryjoggerz Says:

    Which is useful for a married man in Utah.

  16. phoammhead Says:

    very true re bek. love the bock just not so big on blondes, if i’m even talking the right beer language.

  17. phoammhead Says:

    i’ve always been into blonds and nothing ever worked out for the long term. now i’ve got a brunette and things are working out just fine. makes sense really.

  18. SillyWilly Says:

    I guess I never was aware of it, but my roommates pointed out that I clearly have a type

    they define my type as old-school Celtic

    I didn’t even know what they meant.

    and now it sucks because they can pick out women I’m going to be attracted to before I can, which makes for all kinds of awkward exchanges

    and a red-faced Silly.

  19. phoammhead Says:

    is there a hair color associated with that type, silly?

  20. angryjoggerz Says:

    I think we all have types. Mine has always been a bit more outgoing than me, and smarter than me. Take charge, put me in my place. I dig it.

  21. phoammhead Says:

    how ’bout body shape? 😉

  22. phoammhead Says:

    angry likes to be dominatrix’d . . . me too 🙂

  23. angryjoggerz Says:

    When I moved back from China without a Chinese woman on my arm my dad was so bummed. I think he thought I would be out there getting my Chinese wild thing on. I wasnt. My first day in China my boss took me aside and told me “women are going to throw themselves as you all the time, but it is because of your passport, not you. You do what you want, but if you mess up, you leave and never come back.” He was right, my students were super aggressive, would come to my apartment and try to force their way in and shit. Never happened.

    I’m such a good boy.

  24. angryjoggerz Says:

    Not dominatrix’d, but nothing turns me off like indecisiveness.

  25. angryjoggerz Says:

    Ok, off to give one more keynote, then airport, then home. Have a fun day bb. Do some extra relaxing on my behalf.
