Let the Madness Begin…

Tourney Time 2012

Enjoy the first round of action today, and here is a powerhouse playlist to rock with or without the ballgames. Also, make sure to cast your vote in Trey Is My Friend’s championship song bracket‘s Round of 32 by the end of today! And then head back for the Sweet 16 tomorrow! In the Phish universe, ticket madness is about to explode over the weekend as all the show of Leg One go on sale in two days! Get your strategies prepared!


Split Open and Melt -> Catapult” 12.31.99 I, Big Cypress, FL

One of the top highlights from Big Cypress—an all-time great.



Reba” 6.13.94 II Kansas City, KS

1994 and “Reba,” a match made in heaven. Here is another stellar version.



Ghost” 8.7.98 I, Raleigh, NC

A first set bomb after the rain stopped at Walnut Creek ’98.



Piper” 8.8.98 II, Columbia, MD

As Phish came back from Europe, after dropping Prague’s 7/6/98 version, “Piper” continued to expand.



Tweezer” 11.3.96 II, Gainesville, FL

A groovy and percussive version with Karl Perazzo; two shows after “Remain In Light” you can already hear the influence of the album’s style.



YEM -> Izabella” 7.26.97 II, Austin, TX

Everyone knows “Tweezabella,” but do you know her sister “YEMabella?”



Stash” 11.13.97 II, Las Vegas, NV

Phish dropped this mammoth “Stash” on the first night of Fall ’97. Funk, what?

    We’ll see if they call me in.

    The SLF has started to look for “non-travel” positions as well.

  2. Duder Says:

    where’s G$$ with a “CUSE” ????

  3. lastwaltzer Says:

    soooo any recommendations on where to stay for alpine?

  4. tela'smuff Says:

    good luck man!

  5. Mr. Palmer Says:

    How great would it be in Cuse went down in round 1? I won’t happen, but it would be great.

  6. sumodie Says:

    great news, duder. hope Denver comes knockin’

    (interesting that the slf dumped the Nexus for an iphone. Those were my top choices and I was favoring the iphone. Hopefully I’ll jump on it soon)

  7. Gavinsdad Says:

    Finally met my source face to face. Did not have the sack to bother him about summer leg 2.

  8. Duder Says:

    if it happens Palmer…
    Well, let’s just say I’ll never give G$$ a rest.


    what other bad team does he like?

  9. Duder Says:

    @ sumo

    I love the my Nexus

    the SLF didn’t

  10. joe Says:

    It would not be great as I have them -15.5 in a few different parlay wagers.
    give me another 10 minutes of game action before I start rooting against them vehemently

  11. SillyWilly Says:


    no worries.

    trusting your instinct on that stuff is often good, I think.

    it’s good karma, and maybe you’ll find out anyway.

  12. sumodie Says:

    Any BB regulars that need Portsmouth, please let me know (my addy is on miner’s tix spreadsheet)

    Phoamm, email sent

  13. Gavinsdad Says:

    Good luck El D.

    And thanks to MIA and Sel J for the lunch chats/good times and bacon. BB web always amazes me.

  14. SillyWilly Says:

    I love all aspects of phish.

    It’s so fun getting ready for shows.

    And then, it’s so fun being at shows.

    it’s so fun talking with everyone about shows later.

  15. lastwaltzer Says:

    SW, so what your saying is you like shows……

  16. SillyWilly Says:

    i love shows.

  17. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    anyone want to come over to my place and take my stats midterm for me? there’s too much bball on for me to be able to concentrate on a take home test

  18. MiA Says:

    This Reba is great.

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    You know what I just thought of? (and I wonder if Jtran is out there)

    I need to get my plan back to become a famous fan.

    I can start crafting my plan right now. I got like 85 days.

    It has to center around generosity, though. I don’t want to be an attention grabbing fan, I want to be a facilitator.

    John Stockton of Phish lot, not Karl Malone.

    though he did deliver.

    somehow, I think maybe “delivering” might get me in trouble.

  20. MiA Says:

    The legal advice tent would be a good start me thinks.

  21. garretc Says:

    “My friend Garret’s family has a summer home about that far on a lake with boating”

    My family does not have a summer home on the lake!

  22. Duder Says:

    you can start facilitating by geting a great liquid connect
    and facilitate that shit all over us BBer’s Silly!

    now that would be a good start!

  23. Robert Champion Says:

    This is where we stay when attending Alpine – It’s a pretty nice place and we had a great experience there the last time.


  24. SillyWilly Says:


    good points, bad points coming from south bend today

    think we needed shephard more than carlisle

    scared about the secondary, but hopefully we can keep a pass rush up to hide our corners.

    not feeling great, though

  25. Duder Says:

    will call you the “Mailman” ‘cuz “your shit delivers”
