My chad was hanging! I didn't understad the directions, This a conspiracy.

I think we should take the top 4 finalists and put them all up to be voted on. Last I checked Fluff was winning.. Poof... Gin? I can think of 4 stronger contenders than Loving Cup.

^That probably has something to do with the way songs were matched up, no? If one recalls correctly, Will was going as close to alphabetical order as possible, so it's not as if the match-up's were simply based on the quality of the songs.

Yes, and I would also love to see Ohio State V Kentucky V Xavier V Duke in the NCAA Final game.

Bottom line, this is my game... if you don't like it, don't play.

Once again, sorry for being a snappy bitch.

Camden and Gorge 1 are probably (PROBABLY) my favorite two shows of the summer. Sand was so awesome because it just kept building and building, something that hadn't really happened at all in '09 up until that point. Gin was just musically perfect; it was more of a journey than a build. Both shows (songs) were amazing all the way through but had completely different vibes; Camden was just pure energy the whole show long. You just wanted to jump off the lawn and into outer space. Gorge had a sort of "planets aligning" vibe. I kept asking myself the whole weekend, "Could this get anymore perfect?"


So it is a tough call. The way I see it, it all depends on what you like about jamz. The groove or the exploration. (Not saying that Sand wasn't exploratory, but there were many more chances taken in Gin. [see Fishman]) I think I have to give the slight edge to Gin considering every factor that entered my mind at both shows.
we are all being pursed. some have been found, some are still running. some will keep running until they get to the end of the road, straight off the proverbial cliff. you don't have to turn back, you just have to turn around.

I just love the last 3-4 minutes of that Gin before it drops into Hood. I remember looking at my buddy, who was experiencing his first show, and saying something like "That stage is going to blast off right into outer space"...he turns to me and says "I swear Dev, I was just going to say the exact same thing to you"...And I'm sure we weren't the only two thinking that. I was never so certain in my life that Mike Gordon was not born on the planet earth, and that this was how we were all going to find that out.

i'm just glad hampton fluff lost. I understand the sentiment behind it, but did phish do nothing better on stage in 09 than just be there? I'm of the opinion that hampton was a good start but the band created much more memorable jams like both featured in this round. And if will had to rig it for fluff to lose, so be it ;)

If you really want to pick hairs about this poll, I find it quite odd that none of the miami jams made it in this tourney as any of the big jams in miami were the best of the year. And that Ghost is def better than Albany . But its a democracy, and i'm just enjoying playing along. This is a good way to see what everyone's varied (by varied I mean wrong :lol: ) opinions are on what phish has done this year.

I've seen a few shows, and that was up there with one of the best things I've witnessed and been a part of.

Just sayin'... :thumbup:

Oh, and I completely agree about the Miami Ghost and several other moments in Miami, I guess that just wasn't the opinion of the OKP masses :?
