Phishmas Carols

Hippie Santa

Imagine Phish lot in a snowstorm. A bunch of good-natured kidz move from car to car singing carols, smoking spliffs, and slanging goods in the snow. As they move through the lot, here are their top ten selections:

“It’s Beginning To Wook A Lot Like Christmas”

“Nuggets Roasting On An Open Fire”

“Liquid Wonderland”

“Frosty the Narc Man”

“O Come All Ye Custies”

“Ernest, The Red Nosed Reindeer”

“Grandma Got Run Over By A Tweezer”

“Have Yourself A Merry Little Pressie”

“Hark! The Four Odd White Boys Sing”

“I Saw Mommy Kissing Fish Last Night”

    Oh, it’s still uploading. Hold on…

  16. voopa Says:

    It’s up.

  17. Mr. Completely Says:

    ‘Portlandia’ is my new favorite show and it doesn’t even debut until January.

    ^^^ every part of this is exactly true

  18. Mr. Completely Says:

    Tyler the Creator is probably my second favorite new-to-me artist of 2010 but I have not heard that many. Nikki Lynette is #1, Janelle Monae #3 – for the crazy.

    Nikki Lynette ‘Roses N Guns’ mixtape gets better as it goes along I think

    the new EP is better IMO but I don’t have it here

  19. Mr. Completely Says:

    sorry about the crappy trip @p

    lot of bad work vibes circulating it seems. good jobs turned annoying; annoying jobs turned unbearable. hearing it from all over. weird.

  20. Mr. Completely Says:

    and yeah the lyrics on that Odd Future stuff can be pretty terrible…they’re out to shock for sure…it limits my listening to just here and there. but there’s a hell of a lot of creativity in all aspects of that crew, right down to the graphic style, and its all been 100% DIY, local pride, crew driven from the start

  21. Mr. Completely Says:

    Portlandia out, bitches.

  22. sumodie Says:

    neemor, please do. help us live vicariously. but save the jersey for MSG!

    Or wash it in between shows, if that’s allowed

    Holiday madness, organizing presents, paying bills, sending phish bar codes to HHood, checking out nyc recommendations -the time is almost near….

  23. cookinit Says:

    i don’t know if anyone else has mentioned this but the tracklisting for this download has an error. The 6th track listed as split open and melt is actually the enocre version of Divided sky, and the encore listed as divided sky is actually split open and melt from the first set

    morning everyone

    twas the eve before xmas eve and all through the land,
    not a creature was stirring, not even the band
    phishthoughts was silent on its western front
    while miner was out probably smoking a blunt 😉

    the fLEGIONNAIRES were nestled all snug in their heads
    with visions of ck5 lights but not the grateful dead
    and the bb in its wisdom and a little cranky taboot
    was on the precipice of a mighty big hoot

    for over the hill and not so far a way
    the playin’ will commence god bless us, every one
    the webcast will bring us together, the small and the tall
    and leave the scene forever transformed for all!
