Interesting. What got you into Phish?

Ha, I'll leave it to El B.

I got into Phish in high school after a summer working as a junior counselor at a resident kids camp. I heard Fee on someone's boombox (remember those?) and really got into Junta. Then Divided Sky was the song that really hooked me. The first time I saw them live I didn't really get, or like, the jamming, but I eventually came around.

It's just a habit of quoting from back before all these boards added fancy quoting functions. I have seen some boards lose their minds over it though.

I'm just going to assume you aren't aware of the things Mayer has said outwardly in interviews about women

If we're talking about how he's supposedly talked about his former girlfriends, I'm not going to freak out over a guy gossiping a little. I do recall he referred to Jessica Simpson as "sexual napalm" which is about as big a compliment as you can give.

Plus that shit was years ago. I'm not going to hold it against a guy now for being young and immature. I'm pretty sure I would have been just as much of a douche if I had been in his place.

Watkins Glen Region
Reba v DWD
Divided Sky v Fluffhead

Hampton Region
Tweezer v Slave
Weekapaug v Mike's Song

The Gorge Region

SOAMelt and DWD have really been the Cinderella stories of the tourney.

Which is kind of BS since there's no way DWD should be that low. It's not their fault their conference sucks! :mrgreen:

There's at least 1 interview, I believe with the NYT, where he is really crass, douchey, and talks about his porn addiction and stuff, which I'm not shaming him for, but it's a bad interview and I don't know why someone would go on the record about the stuff he says in it.

Also - HI OKP. <3 AND MISS YOU ALL.

My pHiSh thought is that I'm psyched for Curveball and I hope to see some of you all there. PYK was a hero at Magnaball. Does she still log in here?

PYK peeks in here and there since she still answers PMs but I don't think she posts much. Send her a PM to say hello if you want. She definitely said she'll be at Curveball.

Weekend Wook (in conjunction with The Phunion) is now doing a tournament of only 3.0 songs. It is an exercise in masochism.

Man I always complain about Phish waiting so long to announce dates, but this is early! Haven't even hit summer yet! I guess Curve ball tickets are selling well and with a short fall tour with some popular venues, guess they figured they would pull the trigger.

Wonder how many will hold off on buying tickets though save for Hampton/Vegas, esp at 85$ for floors :eh: and with all the Trey shows lately and summer dates that people have invested in.

That being said Phish really has got the ball rolling now and Summer/ Fall will be top notch stuff :thumbup:

Great time to be a fan!

^Yeah, surprised at the Fall dates being out already. Doesn't change much of my plans but it's nice for some fans.

Doubtful for now. My budget's already smashed since I had to get a new car at the start of the year. I probably shouldn't have gotten Dick tix, really, but I had to go to something.

That box set is some kind of something.

Actually, I think it's pretty cool, but there's no way I'm paying $500 for it.

^ My comment was just comparing it to 30 Trips Around The Sun, the Grateful Dead's 80 disc box set. I honestly would have considered it if they would have omitted some of the bells and whistles and given a bulk discount. That's nearly $40 per show. On livephish.com you can buy every show they played last summer (21 shows) on CD for $433.

Ah, gotcha. 80 discs? Good Lord.

I'm trying to not collect things anymore, takes up too much damn space.

Looks like you get a lot in addition to the shows and the ticket matching discs and boxes are cool, but yeah, I agree $500 is steep.

Wow, $500 is nuts. Holy crap! There's no other way to look at that, than overpriced.

The vinyl edition with the 13 songs looks like crap too. $120 for six records, and I don't even like half the songs they chose. :thumbdown: I was getting ready to figure out how to justify $120 too, until I opened up the song list & saw f*cking, More and Miss You and Roggae and Blaze On, ugggghhh!!!!

Sorry, that CD box set looks amazing and all, but this release news caught me on a bad enough day that I'm all thumbs down on this. Alllllll down thumbs.
:thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

Sick of this band, I'm quitting them and getting drunk.

Oh man I'm such a pathetic classic jaded vet. I need an antidote. I'll have to spin some '93 show next time I can bring myself to listen.
:ugeek: :geek: :ugeek: :roll: :wtf:

I'll be alright, potentially.
