I'm going to say not turning out two studio albums in 1998 - the Trey/Tom song based album, and the collaborative writing album.. as much as I think Farmhouse is a nice, well done album, and I'm glad that the SOTG material was collaboratively written over their jamscapes with Tom's lyrics, I think that what ended up being Farmhouse lost a number of killer tracks that didn't really fit on SOTG anyway..

I guess that or Mike in the boathouse (though if individual members' mistakes count then we're gonna be here all year sorting through the Skeetos, Bo Bices, and Matisyahus).

Sand and Tweezer both hold up extremely well, very solid jams out of any era. Wedge glow stick war with sun setting over Philly while on tour and hangin with all my pals is a top tier phish career moment for me.


Just went to d/l this because I don't have it somehow and that Horse > Silent > Sugar Shack (!) > Zero bloc right in the middle of Set II is real strange. And then they close with a solid Tweezer, wtf.

wait, Mansfield 09 wasn’t the first great show of the era?!

anyway, remember the Suzy after that Sand?? that place was about to burst.. also remember how this show became the new 2/28/03 on PT and haters were hating on it for like.. 3 or 4 years. I especially loved the people that tried to claim the 12/30/09 Sand was better. HAH!

Shamefully turnout was like 44% even though voting was open for like two weeks. Also shamefully, none of the candidates ran on a "bring Phish back to Ontario" platform. Condolences to Mrs VHG too!

here’s a thought:

But is a very meaningful song for a lot of people with no clearly discernible meaning or message... is it significant to you? why or why not, and what does it mean to you personally, or even literally if you feel that strongly??

Hey man I wanna respond to your question but I can't understand it, either the message or I is really stoned

Curveball allegedly is 85% sold out so get yer tickets if you haven't already. According to PT.

Highky recommend the latest under the scales episode, it features a very special surprise guest discussing the Ghost sessions, the BD, and how much he loves and admires his bandmates.

And that's your phish news roundup, tip your waiters folks

Ahahaha, now it makes sense. Bug has a very pleasant melody, a gentle build from quiet to loud, and it's fun to holler "it doesn't matter" with a crowd. Occasionally I understand its meaning explicitly (I know what it means in feelings but not language) but it's not coming to me right now.

At SPAC 2016 a Wook yelled at my friend "if they play Bug right now you're gonna see me blow my brains out right here!" Luckily they'd already played it.

CONFESSION:

I have an immense, near-immeasurable appreciation for the music and oeuvre of the band Phish but I don't think there is one lyric of theirs that wallops me when I hear it.

you can put it in spoilers if you’d like..

It is Trey.Toggle Spoiler I don't know that story but there is a charming teen mushroom story in there that relates to Meat I think.

Summer of 89 "our days are full, but they're not our own" is a lyric that wallops me when I hear it.

I think their lyrics are often brilliant as abstract poetry.. Petrichor would be a great example of this, "and the rain came down" isn't profound in any way on its own, but the picture it creates in harmony with the music is just perfect... Divided Sky, Clod, Moma Dance, Limb By Limb, Pebbles and Marbles... are all examples of this to varying degrees.. and probably don't get credit for being as effective as they are. while I'm not going to place them on the level of great lyrics to me per se there has to be a better way to describe my appreciation for them as words paired to music in a very pleasing way.. perfect in the sense that I'm not sure if they would be improved even if they were what are widely considered in rock and pop to be "GOOD LYRICS". does that make sense?

in terms of more literal lyrics, there's still a lot that I feel are strong not just "for Phish".. FEFY, Dirt, All of These Dreams, Anything But Me, Driver, Sleep..

99 listening project from 2016 part 2 notes:

-12/4/99 is better all around than I remember, and Cinci or Albany 99 would make great two show releases.. Nassau would too even
-12/7/99 Gin would be a fine argument for the best of the year, believe it or not
-99 would be a fine argument for “the year of gin” along with 97, 98, 00, & 03.. take your pick I guess!
-12/10/99 Tweezer is very nice for a 14 minute jam.. great opener, but the first set falls flat after that..
-additionally after a GREAT Jibboo and long and groovy Wedge the David Bowie fails to live up to its promise by never resolving.. Bowie -> Have Mercy -> HYHU (with shades of both Bowie & HM as it segues in) > Cracklin Rosie > HYHU would have been an old school style epic classic if they had finished it.. the Fishman sequence had the crowd going WILD but it fails to hold up as more than a solid effort after it just moves along into a standard type I Twist
-Bowie -> Have Mercy -> HYHU > Cracklin’ Rosie > HYHU > Have Mercy -> Bowie... there’s a dimension out there somewhere where this happened and IT RULES
-that Waste tho... lots of extra 99 mustard on that!! & Ride Captain Ride is beautiful as always, such a delight to hear both Trey play & Page sing
-12/11/99 set I is still unreal good (the Mule even!!)
-Sally -> GHOST -> 2001 -> DWD is still an all time segment of music for me.. one of the things that comes to mind when I try to define MY jam

God I love Petrichor. Just had to stop the podcast halfway through to listen to it in full once he told the story on the song and they played that sample.

I really like "Oh to be Prince Caspian, afloat on the waves" but that's because I'm a fucking nerd Narnia fan and also think it would be amazing to float in Narnia discovering cool places and having no real danger

Want to throw in my highest rec for that podcast ep with Tom and secret special guest. I've heard Tom talk before but it really just cemented how special the whole Phish experience is for him. Can't even imagine what it's like to take an intimate process like poetry writing with yr closest friend and watch it transform into this experience that gives joy to so many other people. It really seems like a profound thing for him on one level, but then he's also such a phan and just geeking out like we do itt about it all! Dude sounds awesome
