    The law school gods are making me earn my graduation

    Can’t wait for tour

    Got that old cooped up kid feeling

    #readytogo

    this summer is coming at a big time of my life

    Finishing law school. About to begin a career. Poor, confused, and anxious. I don’t feel quite ready to commit to the work world

    I feel like I’m going to need this summer and look back on it as a source of strength for the rest of my life.

    I’m setting out to find something in my self. Either I’m going to emerge feeling composed and ready to go, or I’m going to know that a great transition is still coming.

    I don’t want to start this life. This summer is like my last stand.

    gonna be big

    Jack White is scoring The Lone Ranger?

    and for those who didn’t know, but do care – Johnny Greenwood is scoring PT Anderson’s next movie.

  9. Fly Says:

    I feel you SW

    I’ve been a student for 25 years. The real world looms. I know how to butter up professors and slip by. No idea how to take care of my biz on a daily basis

    We’ll figure it out, bud. It’ll take some time. Gonna be some ups and downs. But that’s living. And maybe catch a few h3tty jams before Red lays it down

  10. Multibeast Says:

    That live Ween ditty posted earlier is EPIC.

  11. Guyute711 Says:

    Who’s in here still that is in TT? Who was that rapping over Sand?

  12. Multibeast Says:

    I am pulling the trigger on Wooster. Give this a listen. “Welcome to Worchester! Dollar twenty five, please.” CLASSIC.

    Heard that version this weekend Multi and haven’t been able to get it out of my head since.

  14. SillyWilly Says:

    Yeah, Fly

    I’m a lot better than I was a few months ago

    But, the crazy thing is, sometimes, I feel if I’m being honest with myself I should live a much more radical life.

    I don’t want an 8 to 5. I don’t want a house or a car or a family (at least not right now)

    I’m angry and restless and a convalescing depressant. Action seems to be seeping back into my possibilities. I want to go and go and not postpone for the perpetual future (get a job kid, do what you want tomorrow. But, tomorrow never comes)

    That’s what this scene means to me. I want it to be my reality for a while and not merely my distraction

    I guess that’s why I understand the grumblings about tour and why I understand the reaction to the grumblings. On the one hand I need a crazy frenetic Phish. And on the other, I’m glad I get the Phish I do.

    @g711
    it’s Mystic Bowie toasting over Tom Tom Club

  16. Multibeast Says:

    SW
    I don’t think anyone wants an 8 to 5 right after college/grad school/law school. There is pressure to jump right into the ‘real world’ after finishing up your schoolin’. Take your time if you feel that need. I went and lived and worked in Dublin for a year after college. One of the better things I have done in my life. Follow your gut.

  17. MiA Says:

    I like Phish when I can get into the shows. Being left out in the cold sucks.

  18. Guyute711 Says:

    T3 if I ever hear that live I will finally throw my first glowstick at the stage. For shame. 🙄

  19. lumpyhead Says:

    I didn’t want an 8 to 5 either. So instead I accidentally got an 8 to 9. So now you can always be happy about the 5.

  20. Selector J Says:

    Everyone is tip toeing around the big problem for Phish… They need more w00ks in the crowd to jam. There is a direct correlation to the crowd’s w00k ratio and jamming. It’s all about the w00ks. No w00ks. No jams.

  21. Guyute711 Says:

    Anyone happen to hear any of the roll your own segment on XM last night. I wanted to jump into my radio and strangle the dude spinning songs.

  22. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    whose shame, yours? 😛

  23. dorn76 Says:

    If you end up with a wife, dog, kid and living in the suburbs you’ll be just like half the peeps on this board.

    Maybe inevitable, but def don’t rush it! 🙂

  24. yematt Says:

    miner, thank you so much for the quality jams the past few days. Just when I think I know the live catalog pretty well, you pull out gems that I’ve never heard. whadda treasure box we have!

  25. IrieWalton Says:

    I jumped right into the work world immediately after school, Silly. Got me a “big time” gov’t job in DC; working 70 hour weeks; living with a girl I met in school that thought I would marry. I thought that I was “set”.

    Needless to say, two years later:

    – I was fleeing babylon back to the west coast;

    – The girl had walked out on me leaving me literally homeless since we had already terminated our lease in advance of a cross-country move that we had been planning for a year, but she informed me two weeks out that she was going to do “solo” (thank god for friends).

    Bottom line: do it up in your 20s. It’s your teenage years with a bit more wisdom having been gained, but without all the traps that you noted (house, dependents, etc.).

    Luckily, by the time you hit your 30s things start to crystalize a bit more and knowing you, you’ll have figured it out by then and hopefully will have notched a lot more shows and experiences in your belt.
