    Still rolling through that GD May 77 box

    ^ That one is really good. Been emailing over the last week or so with Jeffrey Norman, the guy that does the mixes on all the GD releases to get his take on the new 90’s box set and how it compared to the previously released 90’s box set. 50th anniversary coming up too; going to be a great year for the GD!

    Vape- I’ve been dealing with herniated disc for awhile now since breaking hip and femur in car accident 7yrs ago. Best thing for me lately has been core stabilizing yoga, focusing on hips, stomach and core muscles. Might be too painful for him now but good as preventative. Also, tell him to get a foam roller.

    People respond better to ice or heat differently, I prefer ice. That may help him.

    I take it you didn’t make it down this weekend?

    Kaveh reaches soundboard mixing God-tier status.

    When you talk fashion, people listen. That’s a powerful weapon, so yield it wisely. Darth knows what I mean.

    Regarding Coyote Searches:

    The sneaky buggers eat the cats that ate the coffee bean, then shit out the cat with a coffee bean in it.

    How hip is that shit?

  6. Stoney Case Says:

    Portsmouth! Get some!

    Everyone spin the Kitten Factory Tweezer enough times? Cowabunga!

    PS: Only a Lou Czar would dare relisten to the Light>20yl>Hood from Chicago.

  7. Kaveh Says:

    @btb: I’m going to have to spin through that box set again; for some reason 77 just doesn’t uplift me like it used to. Although there are some exceptional shows in that box set. St Paul, Chicago, Alabama (or it is Florida)…what are the other shows in there?

  8. verno329 Says:

    Thanks for the Roots drop Sel J!

  9. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Hell no marco kayanap just talks about cannonball runs but ultimately ends up casting w/ his feet up 😉

    Luv ya vapeski!

  10. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    so vegas.

    are people requesting best available or floor only there or what? what’s the skinny on that venue?

    really loving that my wife asked me over the weekend whether we are going or not. did NOT expect her to want to make that trip happen.

  11. tela's_muff Says:

    i’ve gone back and forth on Vegas or EUG>SEA. pros and cons with both. SF>Vegas is a legit 6 show run. could settle down in both cities for 4 days. nice and easy. never been to SEA or POR, but time there would be limited, and the drive after EUG does not excite me. saw Phish in Vegas in ’03 and ’04. ’03 two of my fav show, ’04 easily the worst. feels like this year should be special.

  12. Stoney Case Says:

    Thanks Sel J! First try got a ‘permission denied’. Realized had Chicago 2 playing in the background. Hit stop, now download enabled.

  13. RicksFork Says:

    T3 – I requested best available. I thought this was a good idea especially for Halloween as that might be a tougher ticket later on. Not sure if I made the right move, but I wanted the best chance of getting something. My luck has been great with PTBM lately so I have pretty low expectations for this one.

    Riverport Gin made my morning. Always does.

  14. Jerome Garcia Says:

    ^think you’ve got it deeply dialed w/ the above smuff.

  15. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    that’s what I’m thinking too, sFork. I figure get in the door first and if possible I can try (and probably fail) to upgrade later if what I get isn’t up to snuff.

  16. vapebraham Says:

    thanks, marco. hurtin right now. never made it down to MPP. spinning MPP 1 set II now. carini!

  17. Stoney Case Says:


    do both. go home in the middle.


    Def a bummer that more time will be spent in LA area than PNW. So it goes. Begrudgingly.

  18. elihu Says:

    Had to break for sleep at NICU but just finished watching that show:

    Oh my glob. I would like to say congratulations to everyone in attendance Sunday night. And to all of us. I think it’s fair to say that we’ve got a band.

    Looking forward to a root attack later today J. You da mon.

  19. tela's_muff Says:

    yeah, JG, it seems i’m answering my own question. plus, the wife is getting pissy i’d be missing our youngest daughters 2nd birthday on Oct.17th.

    T3 – tell your wife a CO wook is sleepin on your floor in Vegas.

  20. Stoney Case Says:

    Hey G$$$,

    re: Charlotte. Saw your drive by. Great show! Well, great second set. Didn’t catch the first. SpaceCamp jams and sleek segues. Great step in the tour.

  21. RicksFork Says:

    That’s exactly my logic T3. I hope you succeed. My little Vegas crew is all doing the same thing. I we end up with extras I will let you know of course.

  22. Jerome Garcia Says:

    All those going to LV should seriously consider spending some time out at Red Rock Canyon (http://www.redrockcanyonlv.org/) & hit some Phish aftershows at BBLV (Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas). BB house band GSBG playing post show on both Sat 11/1 & Sun 11/2.

    Speaking of the BB house band I’ve got a question for our man in the know aka Knowy Case…wtf is the deal w/ Greensky not playing Austin in ’14? Or any TX shows for that matter. Seriously I cannot comprehend this. I need answers…

  23. Jerome Garcia Says:

    …missing our youngest daughters 2nd birthday on Oct.17th.

    ^you’ve got your answer. Can’t go missing your wee one’s bday. Es no bueno.

  24. tela's_muff Says:

    ha, Stoney, i actually slyly floated that idea to the wife and received a cold icy stare. too much money, too much time. 9 days, 6 shows, at this stage of the game is a blessing. gotta know when to hold them.

    @elihu – nice Adventure Time reference. “oh my glob”

  25. Jerome Garcia Says:

    gotta know when to hold them.

    ^it’s like playing poker w/ Kenny Rogers. FML. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-Mhr-UvwmE
