This menacing version descended upon Blossom, leaving many wide-eyed fans wondering what had just happened.

Runaway Jim ->  Makisupa” 7.2 II, Sugarbush, VT

A hard-edged and grinding jam eventually melts into “Makisupa” on the first night of Sugarbush’s summer-ending precursor to The Clifford Ball.

    At least the 5D Mark III is finally being announced this week.

  2. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    I would schedule phish to play as many teir 2 or 3 festivals to create massive mayhem in the marketspace and intentionally expose some impressionable new folks to the phish from vermont.

    Would also book a 10 night stand on the roof of my parents’ house or plateau point in the GRand Canyon or this cave http://mccainphoto.photoshelter.com/image/I0000uowyut4tFO0

    @Jtran

    Looks like you ditched Chelsea at the right time, eh?

    Must be a frustrating time to be a fan of the Blues these days…

  6. Robear Says:

    seriously though, let’s embrace these jams from Miner.

    Dates for leg 1 at least, coming tomorrow or Wednesday. saul goode

  7. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    Nice voopa, wanna buy my 5D mark II? 😉

  8. Robear Says:

    anyone experiencing a loss, may i suggest you go on ‘Spotify’ and listen to ‘Maddie’s Song’ by Seth Bernard and May Erelweine. It’s in the TT room too. Did wonders for me this morning..

  9. ColonelJoy Says:

    @Miner,

    I think Europe Summer 97′ was as experimental, maybe more than Summer 95′.

    Experimental meaning diverging from previous forms.

  10. ColonelJoy Says:

    @Miner Again,

    But all the jams you’ve posted from summer 95′ are top notch.

    You do quality work.

  11. voopa Says:

    Df- I wish…this one’ll keep me in debt for a while…only have two lenses so far, so it’ll be a while before I get another camera body!

  12. bhizzle Says:

    Nickleback never cancels bro!!!!!

    ^love it…lol

  13. bhizzle Says:

    Tela’s…congrats!

  14. snowbank Says:

    Yeah Miner, I don’t say thanks enough. The tunes the past few weeks, as always, have been a huge bonus. Thanks!

  15. ColonelJoy Says:

    I texted Cal the other day that Styx was the worst band ever….

    He disagreed, claiming both REO wagon and Creed are worse.

  16. ColonelJoy Says:

    Is Nickelback better than Creed?

  17. BingosBrother Says:

    Styx was experimental as all get out. my brother once opened for Nickelback. I never let him forget it.

  18. poop goblin Says:

    REO and Darius Rucker were Obummers fav picks on his spotify account

  19. poop goblin Says:

    is anyone’s opinion that digs Bono as much as Cal valid Joy?

  20. lumpyhead Says:

    I think I’d take Creed over nickelback, but really I don’t know..

  21. Guyute711 Says:

    You can’t just choose not to be Hootie anymore.

  22. Gratefulcub Says:

    “Is Nickelback better than Creed?”

    In the same sense that Polio is better than Small Pox, yes.

    They are both horrible, but one comes with a side dish of hypocritical Christian evangelizing.

    i will choose my own religion, worship my own spirits…… I will not be preached to by a guy that makes Kid Rock look like Mozart

  23. bhizzle Says:

    I thought they were the same band

  24. Mr.Miner Says:

    no band that write “Come Sail Away” and “Mr. Roboto” can possibly be considered he worst band ever…

    that label has to go to some death metal band I am sure of it.

    ^100%
