TTFT: Miami ’09 & March Madness

12.29.09 - Miami, FL (Wendy Rogell)

As we finish our audio retrospective of 2009, today brings us to Miami. Riding the cresting momentum of fall tour’s back end, there was a sense that something special would happen down south. Heading to the proximity of Big Cypress ten years later and back to American Airlines Arena six years later, plenty of memories and anticipation hung in the air. And when the band left Miami, they had found a new sense of musical purpose, bringing their playing to a new level while inspiring the community and making the future look brighter than ever. Mike had been using his envelope filter more and more towards the end of fall, and in a New Year’s Run in which he was the undeniable leader, the effect was prominent in many of the jams. Achieving a new level of musical density, Phish was hitting on all cylinders as the calendar turned to 2010. Today’s playlist is comprised entirely of Miami highlights. Stay tuned from a trip through 2010 starting tomorrow.

    Walter H. White: We have to move our production bulk wholesale now. How do we do that?

    Jesse Pinkman: What do you mean? To, like, a distributor?

    Walter H. White: Yes. Yes, that’s what we need. We need a distributor now. Do you know anyone like that?

    Jesse Pinkman: Yeah. I mean, I used to until you killed him.

    I like Wilde

    But, then again, I always find the philosophy and art of those writing from the destruction of WWII as more interesting (if not more valuable…but I’m placing this in a parenthetical) than earlier artists.

    I think Sartre had a good reason for being so serious.

    He watched the destruction of France and then tried to come up with a philosophy to deal with the failure of western civilization.

    Some argue that the art of the west up to WWI and WWII was principally focused on beauty, while WWI and WWII switched the focus to the sublime

    Sartre/Camus/Beckett so many others were trying to come to grips with the destruction of the enlightenment project.

    I think their art is so much more interesting.

    It’s academics. They already said no one on the current team has failed any drug tests.

    ^ I still need to do mine; I knew I was waiting for something. 🙂

    – Tuco Salamanca

    ^ Half way through Season 2. My wife and I are really enjoying the show!

  18. MiA Says:

    WTF? Maybe this has already been stated, but there is no “Maze” in the brackets?

    That is plain fools crap right there.

    “No Sir, I don’t like it”

  19. MiA Says:

    Kansas St. just beat Syracuse in my brackets now.

  20. lumpyhead Says:

    I was just funnin.

    and yes, dick.

  21. Guyute711 Says:

    Just remember with your brackets folks, the Cuse is the deepest team in the nation. Do I think they can win it all? Probably not, but they still may do a little damage.

  22. thedayman Says:

    nice @ kaveh! enjoy, its a great show. just started the walking dead pretty recently, really liking that one myself.

  23. marcoesq Says:

    That is true, Cuse will play 9-10 pkayers solidly

  24. MiA Says:

    Robert Kennedy, whose summer home is eight miles away from the home I live in all year round, was shot two nights ago. He died last night. So it goes.

    Martin Luther King was shot a month ago. He died, too. So it goes.

    And everyday my government gives me a count of corpses created by the military service in Vietnam. So it goes.

    So it goes. – KV
