    mitten is like taking a step back in time

    don’t get me all riled up, but i don’t like that guy . . . one little bit

    bek says i should star on a promotion for obama and say voting for mitten is like taking a step back in time . . . and, i might add . . . . to all the things that we have previously overcome as . . . well, hate to be dramatic . . . but, . . . evil

    spuinnin 10.18.12 TAB. nice recording but for the talkers. still don’t understand what compels a person to pay $ for a show and then talk/yell over it. crazy.

    2nd keyboardist is cloying, tinny sounding, and unnecessary. yikes.

  5. phoammhead Says:

    asshats, kaya. inexplicable.

    Dr. Alf, PhD!

    infiltrating the system and brainwashing America’s youth to feel with their hearts.

    and Frankie:
    cool story, man.

    sounds like a blast. I think that “surreal” phenomenon is a way for your brain to slow an experience down so you can remember it better.

    don’t trust me, though, I’m not a doctor.

  7. phoammhead Says:

    even back in the day when it was apparently my otherwise more or less goal to get shitfaced i respeckted the music . . . some people are just douchebags.

  8. phoammhead Says:

    . . . that’s what attracks me to this website . . . awareness

  9. kayatosh Says:

    granted this aud. is an FOB, but the level of talking is astounding. music is $ to $$.

  10. joe Says:

    problem is phoam, many people look back at the good old days very fondly and want to go back there, even though the place in their minds isn’t the reality of how it was. (was that a billy joel song or something?) Let’s take back our America and all that other bullshit. (steps off soapbox, carry on)

  11. Frankie Says:

    He was talking about how bands are more than the sum of it’s parts and that when one guy leaves or dies it’s over, it can never be replaced… He was citing the Who or Led Zeppelin as examples and relating it to 2004 and how he was glad that they didn’t leave that way because it would have sucked…

    It was funny ’cause he was talking about the current Phish sound like he’s not even in the band, saying that before, they were fucked up and wanted to go really fast but that now it was spacier and more relaxed…

  12. phoammhead Says:

    i hear you, joe

    progress . . . enlightenment . . . really is what it it is, though

    not to say everything that is occurring is for the best, obviously

    i like today’s experiment . . . hope it continues

  13. MiA Says:

    Alf Ph’d

  14. xpun Says:


    Did you find the droids you were looking for?


  15. kayatosh Says:

    nice to hear Cyro back in the mix.

  16. phoammhead Says:

    i really get trey’s shine and traveler albums . . . i think trey and i have traveled similar paths

  17. SillyWilly Says:

    That’s really cool, Frankie.

    a great little insight into the band.

    thanks for sharing that

  18. kayatosh Says:

    was wrong about 2nd keyboardist in TAB. there is none. i guess the casey cat who plays sax jumps on boards for some tunes.

  19. sumodie Says:

    TAB 2nd keyboardist? Not Cyro, not Ray P…?

  20. sumodie Says:


  21. kayatosh Says:

    Ray’s still on boards. cyro = perc. I saw a 2nd keyboardist in the corona video. figuring out that it could be Casey who debuts in TAB this tour on tenor.

  22. kayatosh Says:

    people talkin hard over let me lie, which sounds tweaked. no respect for the trey love.

  23. Dr Pronoia Says:

    havent read back but congrats Dr Alf!!

  24. Dr Pronoia Says:

    I got 28th 100s through Lotto, 29th 100s through the iphone app at the gorilla exhibit at the zoo (!!??), and my buddy got front floors for the 30th from his home computer

    Was expecting bubkis and ended up sitting pretty! Hope the rest of the BB got what they needed too

  25. kayatosh Says:
