    Dancing’s already been discussed as Heady put it ‘dancing…is THE way to end a first set’ #TheRightWay. Brown Eyed Women one of my fav versions if not my fav. Scar>Fire also outstanding. Remember vividly 1st ever spin (was unfamiliar w/ the show up to this pt) of 2nd set on hifi. Got properly powercooked turned it up 11 & laid on the carpeted floor where my Polk Audio bookshelves were situated & it literally felt like I was on a magic carpet ride riding the waves of Phil’s bass lines. Estimated also a top version. St>NFA>St>Dew fantastical as vegas alludes to. Not a lull in the entirety of the 2nd set.

    Apologize in advance for repost but if you’ve never read this it’s entertaining:

    Ask willowed about the Cornell Dancin 😯

    That was part of our late night soundtrack traveling from Camden to camp for the night before MPP in ’11. Made for a perfect full car participatory dance party (for those still on the right side of conscious, that is) on the rolling back roads of the eastern shore.

    Thing A not as good as it once was.

    Thing A still very good and occasionally gives awe-inspiring glimpses of Thing A’s past. Thing A also finds new ways to create given slightly diminished skill set.

    Strongly prefers having Thing A over not having Thing A. Is extraordinarily grateful Thing A is still here and available.

    Thinks Thing A still has a few tricks up Thing A’s sleeves as well.

    Thing A!

  4. MiA Says:

    Thing A = Tiger Woods?

  5. MiA Says:

    Oh yeah. Temples live about a month ago. Although it is a studio show, nothing like a festi show. πŸ˜‰

    Heading into city but don’t want to gloss over Stoney’s cogent point, which I digested, and think has merit.

    A “pro” should want to be at their A game. I’m no football analyst but even look at the strange ending to Favre. He liked the game so much he didn’t even want to leave it. A pro should take stock of their performance thru clear eyes and perfect what they are producing “in the now”. Great point.

    But that’s the major diff between stoney and I. And we’ve chatted about it. I simply don’t demand, or require, that the pro I’m paying for be at his best. I have a much more macro view of everything that’s in play at a show. The Macro level alchemy is what I’m about as opposed to executional skill at the note to note level. I’ve just always been that way.

    While the music (and the fans) play the band is what Hunter wrote.

    Stoney must’ve rubbed that soil all over his face.

    Ray Lewis and Jon Gruden among the ESPN crew covering the draft. Guess I’m watching it on NFL network.

  11. MiA Says:

    I hear ya Gdad. As a fan I want to see the player performing his best. A “mailed in” victory tour of an aging athlete because they can make more money in the pinnacle of their “popularity” can be a disappointment to some, and not to others.

    Arnold Palmer played well past his prime. As a Masters winner, he would usually end up playing every year. While he would shoot in the 80’s to 90’s, he loved the event, and someone, usually an amateur, got to play with him.

    Some kid out there has an Arnold Palmer signed scorecard at the Masters, and that kid signed Arnold’s 94.

    If you paid just to watch Arnold Palmer play you might feel gyped. I am positive the kid loved it.

    Trey sitting on your head > Fish sitting on your face.

    He’s freeballin’ under there.

  13. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    There are people on that ‘my 600 pound life’ show with less stank under their mumus than fish

  14. BingosBrother Says:

    I don’t do social network, besides this, but I’ll gladly wear a Royal Gold tee all summer. I’ll soak the shit out of it at Northerly 14. XL

  15. sumodie Says:

    With no new shows since Jazz Fest or MSG if you like, perhaps the issue is, why keep cycling back to the same (negative) comments of what Trey/Phish should/could be doing before/during shows?

    By no means do I want to stifle reasonable critique. I tacitly agree with many of the less favorable observations mentioned here about the band. I think everyone here believes Trey could be doing something better. Of course, everyone I know could be doing something better.

    By now we all know the 3.0 rhythms; thus I find the JF show to be a success for what it is as opposed to what it isn’t.

    In spite of it being NOW and not THEN, I mostly had a great time at most of the shows I caught in 2013. Ergo I will continue to catch more live phish in 2014, even if it means putting up with the expected 3.0 annoyances.

    Meanwhile, there’s a lot of excellent live music out there.

    Rainbows make everything better

    ‘Cept wearing handcuffs ;0>

    ^dig it. Well said. & last part is funny NOW definitely not THEN πŸ˜‰

  17. sumodie Says:

    This aging rocker refused to cash in on his popularity:

    Robert Plant goes into detail about the reasoning behind his turning down a late ’00s tour with Led Zeppelin following the band’s hugely successful reunion show at London’s 02 Arena in 2007. “You’re going back to the same old shit. A tour would have been an absolute menagerie of vested interests and the very essence of everything that’s shitty about about big-time stadium rock. We were surrounded by a circus of people that would have had our souls on the fire. I’m not part of a jukebox!”

    Plant walked away from a huge payday, which Rolling Stone estimated could’ve run over a billion dollars…

  18. sumodie Says:

    But the gloves come off if 7/1 Great Woods proves to be another mehfest

  19. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I’m going to try and listen to all of ’94 1st show to last… I’ve attempted this before, but usually fail and give up..

  20. Ulysses S. Wingsuit Says:

    My NFL app is blowing up, for some reason. Not that I’m not watching, but the sideshow (Neighbor White Trash [not Neighbor Whiter Trash]), made me switch the audio. Besides, I only wanted to stay tuned until the Raiders pick, which was interesting enough.

    Hope to get to a show soon, my last were TAB 4/20/13 and Mother Hips free in the park.

    Right on sumo

  22. MiA Says:

    I think I have pain with my 2+ weeks of vacation and $5k a year. If you can see 6-10 shows and still not have to get a hotel room, you are in a different position.

  23. MiA Says:

    Definitely great to be an East Coast Phish fan.

  24. sumodie Says:

    Yo! Austin Psychers, did you catch Woods, Quilt, or White Hills?

    Just realized Primal Scream nixed its US tour outside of PsychFest. Now I’m considering catching either the Woods / Quilt combo tour or White Hills

    If only White Hills had an appropriate touring partner then I wouldn’t hesitate to see them but that’s not the case

  25. sumodie Says:

    No question that time/money/geography impacts one’s phish thoughts. I get the Redwood Curtain position, for example. 4 possible sleep-at-home shows for me this summer. Def makes me more tolerant of Tory’s on stage practice time

    Spinning Quilt’s latest album, Held in Splendor

    Will spin Woods later
