100 Memories From 3.0

Hampton Coliseum 2009 (Jeff Volckhausen)

Yesterday marked the 4th anniversary of the Hampton announcement, a flash video dropped in the middle of the night confirming Phish’s resurrection. Over the last four years, we have come back together as a community and watched our band re-evolve. Now, as we sit on the precipice of Phish’s 30th anniversary year, let’s look back at 100 things that we will always remember from this era.

    pb, thnx for the pro-tip!

  2. oldskool Says:

    Honestly I dont think TTE is that bad a song. In fact it is a pretty epic composition. The album version late night on a good set of headphones is very impressive. I agree in the live Phish setting it is out of place but overall I like the tune

  3. MiA Says:

    I love NCAA Hockey. Other than BC took out the University of MN in the Semifinals last year. Great year for Gopher Hockey, and should be another great year this year.

    Also love the American Hockey League too.

    It’s hard to keep the hand modelling job with spider bites all the way to the wrist.

  6. poop goblin Says:

    TTE is great. lyrics are kinda weird. love the song though.

  7. gavinsdad Says:

    philly 09 and camden 10 tte’s both had powerful tail ends and crisp technical execution in the live setting. i just think it lags and it’s odd (and longish). the sections seem more spit-and-wired together than other long form comps by Trza.

    Go gophs!

    This is what I’m usually talking about:

  10. BingosBrother Says:

    Epic? We’re gonna have to agree to disagree there. To me, its a poor mans Fluffhead and I ain’t a fan of that one either. A buncha parts thrown together that don’t really have a natural flow. I do like the last few minutes of both though. To each his own submarine.

  11. MiA Says:

    The ending of TTE is the best.

  12. MiA Says:

    Hamilton just dropping balls on an error and letting two runs in doesn’t help out Dempster.

  13. SillyWilly Says:

    don’t know anything about classical music, but it seems like that’s what Trey was going for

    themes and such

    Miner said TTE was pretty sick with the orchestra. I could see that.

    Would love a classical music theorist to comment on whether it works for the genre.

    But, I don’t love it with Phish in the live setting.

  14. BingosBrother Says:

    Yes it is. I will give phish credit for having the balls to release a 15 minute composition as their 1st recorded output released to the public when they came back. Showed me they were still gonna be Phish.

  15. voopa Says:

    haha Dumpster, what a joke.

  16. SillyWilly Says:

    I never thought of it as an on-going joke, but it totally could be.

    Trey’s saying: “Give these fucking wooks some culture.”

  17. SillyWilly Says:

    most of the time, though, I don’t want Trey’s culture…

  18. IrieWalton Says:

    Don’t know if folks have seen/heard it yet, but Spotify just upped the complete 4-disc. 1973 Fantasy Recordings with Jerry and Merl.


  19. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Dempster was already yanked before Hamilton’s drop , MIA. they gave him a 5-1 lead and now they are losing 7-5. ha

  20. MiA Says:

    8-5 I think.

  21. sumodie Says:


    May I have one crusted with bieber yak, please?

  22. MiA Says:

    Just saying that you become quite the goat when you blow a lead. Dropping balls to put yourself down two more doesn’t help when you lose.

    I’ve watched the Twins play for 3+ decades. I’ve watched them go into the 8th inning winning 8-1 and blow it. Multiple times. Painful.

    I’ll be a Ray’s fan tonight.

  23. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Man, with this second wild card things are quite confusing on the last day of the regular season.. Pretty wild. Plus you have Cabrera going for the Triple Crown tonight.


  24. sumodie Says:

    Newest buds arrived, Klipsch reference S4

    What they lack in bass compared with the enhanced bass klipsch image S4s, is more than made up by the much improved mid range clarity / instrument seperation

    def a trade off, tho so far so great with the bgca DWD

    Also got more Tx-100 comply foam tips
