TTFF: Highlights of Summer

Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (Michael Stein)


Light > Ghost” 7.1 II Alpine

One of the smoothest and most original segments of music from Leg One.



Undermind” 8.31 I Dick’s

The best first set closer ever?



Birds of a Feather” 6.15 II, AC

At the end of the summer, this “Birds” from the first night of AC, can still hang with any jam of the season.



Tweezer” 8.17 II, SF

A banger from Bill Graham.



Twist” 6.22 II, Cincy

Jesus Christ Super Twist. Never Forget.



Carini”  6.7 II, Worcester

The first jam of summer still sounds just as fresh as it did in June.



Piper” 8.18 II, SPAC

The “Piper” of the summer.



Sand > Roggae” 6.22 II, Cincy

A full-band funk jam in “Sand,” the likes of which we didn’t hear in the second half of summer.



Harry Hood” 8.15 II, Long Beach

This multi-tiered “Hood” punctuated a majestic opening night in Long Beach.

    I’ll check the Cali shows too Mia

    New maps sucks. Im not upgrading because of it.

    Is the iPhone 5 worth it. Haven’t even looked. Kind of over the thing in general lately. What’s the best non iPhone out there. Galaxy? Any users here?

  2. SillyWilly Says:

    Also, I’ve been reading this book called the Politics of Experience by RD Laing – a psychiatrist.

    it’s so freaking good.

    Check it (and think Phish):

    “Words in a poem, sounds in movement, rhythm in space, attempt to recapture personal meaning in personal time and space from out of the sights and sounds of a depersonalized, dehumanized world. They are bridgeheads into alien territory. They are acts of insurrection. Their source is from the Silence at the center of each of us. Wherever and whenever such a whorl of patterned sound or space is established in the external world, the power that it containes generates new lines of force whose effects are felt for centuries.”

  3. SillyWilly Says:

    Oh shoot, MiA. I don’t know if there’s banana chocolate cheerios.

    there’s banana nut and there’s chocolate.

    just buy a box of each and combine them.

    and eat them with almond milk. I love almonds.

  4. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    I’ll just keep throwing dates at you, xpun.


    and eat them with almond milk

    that would only work if I was looking to off mrs. disorder*, what with her tree nut allergy and all.

    *which, I would like the record to CLEARLY STATE that I AM NOT ❗

  5. MiA Says:

    Those words mean nothing to me. Sorry.

    Can you dumb that down for me SW?

  6. MiA Says:

    MrsMiA used expired coconut milk to try to off me.

    Almost worked. I have her number now.

  7. BingosBrother Says:

    On a galaxy now. My first phone though but i dig it.

    Saw a crazy movie last night. Dogtooth. Highly rec.

  8. SillyWilly Says:

    Oh, my bad.

    1. the human mind is best understood by the experiences that inform the mind.

    2. the best way to be (human) is to create experiences. Human in parenthesis because we don’t have to limit being to humanity.

    3. It is good to create your own experiences, better to share and enable creative experiences with others in mutual relationships.

    4. Creation, obviously, is a wonderful thing.

    5. Art is creation. Art is good.

    the genius of his work, and what I can’t explain in one post is how he ties it to psychiatry and psychology – ultimately giving his work more credibility due to it’s roots in clinical work.

  9. SillyWilly Says:

    I would like the record to reflect:

    I do not encourage spousal offing. One way or the other.

  10. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    everyone is horniest in the morning. it’s actually a fact.

  11. ren Says:

    I like the @SW cliffnotes. All good thoughts.

    Monsoon season in NY apparently. Hope its a little nicer this weekend.

  12. Guyute711 Says:

    Dogtooth is nutty. Foreign film correct?

  13. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    if you were scheduled to teach an outdoor climbing class tomorrow and it has been raining since last night with the forecast saying it won’t stop until, oh, Monday, do you think they really need to wait until 5pm tonight to make the decision on whether the class is running or not?

  14. MiA Says:

    Thanks SW. Seriously. I totally get what your interpretation means.

  15. BingosBrother Says:

    Very foreign. Didn’t love the ending, but so creative and unique.

  16. willowed Says:

    Dick’s Undermind….Yes sir!

  17. MiA Says:

    KC Tweezer > Piper really is fantastic.

  18. SillyWilly Says:


    if you dug that, check this out:

    “From the point of view of a man alienated from its source creation rises from despair and ends in failure. But such a man has not trodden to the end of time, then of space, the end of darkness, and the end of light. He does not know where it all ends, there it all begins.”

    might need a minute for the cliff notes, there.

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    the end of space*

  20. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    pretty sure the cliff notes of that is:

    “in and out of focus, time turns elastic”


  21. xpun Says:

    You shot who in the what now?

  22. tzara's Says:

    @xpun professor plum shot colonel mustard in the conservatory. Try to keep up. 😉

  23. voopa Says:

    “voopa’s first show maybe?”

    Exactly! I claim the Crest as my first just because of it’s notoriety, and was the first full show I saw, but I actually saw them open for Santana 7 months prior. My main motivation for going to that show was to see Phish, but it may as well have been a 6th gen cassette compared to the experience of 3/22/93.

    Other notable Spring ’93:
    2/6 end w/Popper and Noel Redding
    2/12 very silly including alt-YEM lyrics
    3/16 another AZ scorcher, with secret language instructions
    3/31 Reba Bowie Maze Hood YEM Harpua drool
    All of the first week of May as well. And plenty in between.

  24. xpun Says:

    I really liked the clue movie. Prolly the start of my French maid fetish.

  25. Dorn76 Says:

    Morning mimosas are exceptional, but these days are limited by the kiddoo.

    I read all of the points in the @SW Cliff notes, and each one could be replaced with 2 words: Cincy Twist.
