Fall 2013 (Andrea Nusinov)

Fall 2013 (Andrea Nusinov)

Here are the ten finalists of the December ’95 haiku contest. I put the names into a hat and drew three winners, who are highlighted in blue. Winners, send me your mailing address and I’ll get these out in time for the holiday. Thanks to all twenty-five people who entered a haiku! (I wanted to publish em all but thought it might be overkill!) Happy Holidays!


It’s cold in Gamehenge.

Hershey to Garden we step

Into the freezer.

Surgically precise

Firing on all cylinders

Underground no more

Unstoppable express train

Next stop, MSG

A band on a peak

Excitement ever splendor

A garden party for all

iced brains elevate

unbridled, psychedelic

MSG awaits

Let’s scare the children

Make ’em think they’ve really flipped

Push and pull and squeeze

– Tony Gray


short days, chilly nights

fiery facial peak onslaught

deftly thrilling phans

We all stopped at once.

And the stars all turned around.

The Four Wiseman played.

Polished and gleaming

’Twas a culmination, man

Pinnacle of Phish

Like Sketches From Ol’ Vermont

Seven Steps Beyond

    Oh ya, I just remembered. My dad had heart surgery 2 day’s before this show. He had 5 bypasses done. It was a trying experience at the time. That is why this show was so much more to me then it was in general. Sure it was just another Phish show, but tripping with that on my mind and Phish playing out of their mind I had no choice as yet to lose it. As weird as it sounds, it was losing it in a good way this night. As it normally was until it wasn’t, but that’s another story all together. Just like each and every other night that I thought I had gone too far yet to come back, I came back. Weird thing to remember for sure however. I vividly remember sitting there just steering at the lights and band and thinking to myself. Well you all have been there. You know the thought. Weird for sure. Love this show now however. This DWD is jamming.

    Repost from bottom of last post..

    The Drug War is a travesty. No argument from me. Camden still a shithole.

    So A&E pulled a guy off Duck Dynasty for being a redneck… Isn’t that the show’s premise?

  8. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Papa Phil has been placed on indefinite hiatus for anti gay remarks.

  9. Dorn76 Says:

    12/28 now appearing on my 10 day weather forecast!

    35 and Sunny. 100% chance of get down.

  10. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Enjoying the Pure Jerry series via the Shark. Fired up PJ: Bay Area ’78. Choice cuts & excellent vintage.!/album/pure-jerry-bay-area-78/4702333

  11. BingosBrother Says:

    I don’t get that shows appeal. Every single word is scripted and it’s not remotely interesting. Merica, I guess.

  12. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    Wingsuit Chamonix Chute Remix Edit (feat. Low Altitude Driveby)

  13. ren Says:

    Morning All

    Some birdies chirpin’ around these parts lately. Seems like the the band may have gotten some work done right after AC…but I think thats been it. Everyone is off doing their own solo projects right now. Can’t imagine there will be much time for practice if any.

    Hope this run doesn’t arrive via USPS. If so hopefully Priority and not 1st Class.

  14. Kaveh Says:

    Morning BBers…

    …‘Free’ used to get weird

    ^ Best line of the bunch…

  18. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

  19. Calpain Says:

  20. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Merica indeed Bingos.

  21. Brostafarian Says:

    A&E (the Armaments and Explosives channel) is intolerant of intolerance?

    I do hope that everyone in America quits watching the show, and they take it off the air.

    Surely there is room for another “Real Housewives of …” out there.

    (I know that is Bravo, but … A&E needs to step up their game. Too many of their shows have fat people in Cowboy hats. Or women in bikini tops riding horses)

  22. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    what do you have against women in bikinis riding horses, MiA?

    this here’s a free country, sir, and I’ll get pham b to stockpile all of the unregistered guns he can to defend a lady’s right to be televised while riding a horse sporting nothing but a bikini top if she so chooses, dang it!

  23. Spasm Waiter Says:

    Nice assortment of full length concert vids… rocking Femi Kuti at Central Park Summerstage now:

  24. Jerome Garcia Says:

    ^^^hahaha! Rodeo Girls is going to go huge. A&E’s next blockbuster series.

  25. phlorida phan Says:

    What is this show with bikini clad women riding horses program you speak of. IMNTK thanks.
