  2. MiA Says:

    Congrats SW!

  3. Luther T. Justice Says:

    I remember having one of those moments during the Sugarbush Slave while surrounded by the scenic Green Mountains. The 95 Sugarbush run have been my only Vermont shows. Need to get back up there sometime.

  4. Luther T. Justice Says:

    Congrats Silly! Now its time to make your mark in the world.

  5. Leo Weaver Says:

    Congrats Silly! Don’t be spilly. And yes, wear the tie-dye chucks.

  6. b-rock Says:

    Congrats SW! I’d vote hell yes on the Chucks… Unless it’s going to cost you the piece of paper, anything is fair game.

  7. angryjoggerz Says:

    SW, the answer is tie dye chucks are not cool on any occasion.

  8. Leo Weaver Says:

    Hey Luther. Hope you’re doing alright. I’m gonna need a little help for my DC weekend, so keep ya eyes open. I’ll have a jar or two of Duke’s mayo for your troubles. We’re looking forward to you visiting the NC in July.

  13. angryjoggerz Says:

  17. SillyWilly Says:


    I watched a great movie called Hunger last night

    Steve McQueen film

    Very visually intense

    it’s about Bobby Sands and the Belfast prison hunger strikes in 1981

    not for a fun sunday afternoon, but definitely a must-see

  18. TheSloth Says:

    Enjoy the day SW you’ve earned it… next up bar exam.

  19. angryjoggerz Says:

    So my 2 year old was dropping some mad philosophy on me last night.

    Her: “You want me to tell you a story?”
    Me: “Sure.”
    Her: “Once upon a time there was nothing. The end.”

    Mind blown.

  20. xpun Says:

    @silly – congrats!! wear whatever you please, you earned it, how’d the interview go?

    @robear – remember today is the day

  21. poop goblin Says:

    I told LW we want a way more hip/aggro look when we see him in the papers tomorrow

  22. angryjoggerz Says:

    I guess all the Buddhist art in our house is paying off.

  23. angryjoggerz Says:

    Down with corporations!

    (Except Gap jeans, North face jackets, Nike shoes, fixie bike company, Urban Outfitters face scarves, ironic Rayban sunglasses and Chrome bike messenger bags)

  24. SillyWilly Says:


    interview is on Monday. I’ll let everyone know how it goes. I have to tell a 5 minute story in the interview and I’m telling the old white socks story from last summer.

    Also, Sloth

    no bar exam for me in Wisconsin. Diploma Privilege

    Diploma Privilege = More Phish shows.
