Like the waves crashing on a shallow beach, the noize cycles in and out with the quick moving tide, Or the breathing of some giant beast whose exhale is a deafening whisper.
This city never sleeps, it grumbles and howls all night long. Even though we're 7 floors up its as if we've pitched a tent next to grand central station. Were one block from MSG, with a great view of the town.
Last nights dinner landslided its way thru my colon like a pint of draino.
we rolled into nyc , almost ran out of gas waiting in traffic
for the lincolin tunnel, so i cruised down in neutral. We picked
up rosie and met jesse at his place. This is gonna be fun.
Went to Sarge's again I love this deli! NYC has the best food .

5-23-03- Woke up at the crack of noon and bailed for nyc.The windshield wipers died so were pourin on the Rain-x..We dropped in on a buddy in MD. He loved the shirts and got one for his girl too. Stopped at the 8 for a nights rest after another fast food debacle that id rather not mention. NYC should cure those roadfood blues.
Went to bel air exxon sandwhich shop, watched the godfather. Need
to bail early tomorrow.Its been great to seeing everybody!

What a scene! They've gotten rid of the old couch and now have
new fatty leather couches with feet rests, and a super large screen

The guy playing guitar had one of my fuck you stickers on his guitar. We clapped to fill the silence of the end of each song, it was participation angst. We heard that Max Collins was playing next door so we jetted over to the Virginian.More tequila>
Max rocked the house!
we came back to mikes and watched itunes on the big screen.

I just watched the South Park where Earth is just a big galactic TV show, and i'd have to agree.
Hmmmm , im giving Danker Nugs away for free..- He's simply taking it from Phenster.com and trying to sell it back to you......
He also stole my euro"DOH" sticker, the weekapaug groove/coca cola, the 6-up,& the frid-ol Day. Which he removed a short time ago after some letters arrived at his office.

the Absolutely Mind Bending tale of
Phil and Phriends at THE WARFIELD April 1999.
My Big Cypress poster was placed in the Seminole Tribe museum.
This is the 4 year anniversary of Phil and Phriends.
I will try to tell the astonishing tale in lavish detail.
Those of you who know me have heard the tale before.
An experience to go unrivaled for a long time. Get ready.
came up with some feasible tour plans.. Either drive to Tenessee
and leave our car some where and meet up with Jay and Robbie and the rest of the crew in Bonnaroo. Or drive with Jay to Bonnaroo and back to Vt or ny after june15 , pick up Matt (or not) and do Dead tour throgh the 29th, which gives us 7 days to get to pheonix after I drive with jay back to Vail. Then I must decide,
3 days at Red Rocks with the Dead or the beginning of Phish tour. Either way jump in with J and R from The Gorge on>>.
4-11-03-Why oh why oh why oh...
4-10-03- What an awesome week its been. Ive created so many new ideas i dont know where to begin.
4-9-03- Is it just me? Or is The population of Iraq so conditioned through
fear into having to cheer for who ever is in power that particular
decade ,that the jubilant crowds in Iraq chanting "We love
Bush" are just as contrived and propaganda driven as when
they were chanting "We love Saddam?"
I think the smiling faces are veiling a deep resentment.
("Meet the new boss, same as the old boss!"-The Who.)
passes slowly when your sitting in limbo....I create and I wait,
there's a faint song in my head all day long .Songs that when
I hear them , I remember myself dancing, and how the weather was
We as a fan base were more tribal. It was obviously a different time .......thinking about it reminds me of Summer tour mostly. There's just so much more to the experience when the weathers nice. 98 being my favorite year of phish because im a cover song fiend, and it was amazing weather . The mid west was a most pleasing musical run. I remember spunadently leaving my bike krypto-locked to a fence somewhere in starlake, I remember driving on the back of the golf cart in Oswego, the rainstorm during purple rain in red rocks, lightning striking during Taste in North Carolina 95, the Free during a nasty lightning storm in Ohio .I remember Trey thanking us for not being like the fans at the apocalyptic Woodstock II. I remember the "Can you hear me knockin" jam to end Weekapaug, in sunrise fla 94, Highway to hell the next night in Orlando, probably the highest ive ever been at a show besides The Warfield when Phil and Phriends played. That by far was the most amazing musical experience I've ever had .I will have to dedicate a page alone to document that experience. I remember the chandeliers during Chalkdust at the fillmore in 98, I remember Ken kesey asking me to be a Bozo and then later on screaming --"Frankenstein's on Fire again !! Frankenstein's on Fire !!" I remember Water in the sky>Drown in North Carolina in the pouring rain, the sunsets and fog machine from the Gorge, Terrapin Station and the Va beach police, I remember bellbottom blues, I can recall Paul Languedoc getting arrested in the lobby of the hotel in Worcester, I remember taking a short cut leaving the great went and avoided the traffic jam, I remember the fatty Trey lit up to light the fuse that sparked up the stage at the lemonwheel, the Art jam where we moved the painting across the crowd to set it on fire , and how Trey whispered 'OH WOW! into the mic" when it was set ablaze. I remember the lights from Simple in star lake 98 were all pink and purple, I remember Chewbacca,RC I remember Bart catching the FOB tapers, I remember all the Burlington kids, and the YEM from UIC 98. I remember losing it to the rocky mountain way, and Paul L handing us a Sierra Nevada after the show! all the beer we snuck into msg , Kuroda keeping our beers cold during the show in MSG NYE. I remember fishmans lights going half out on his Suspicious Minds Elvis cape in atlanta 95,
I remember Carl Perazzo's bell chimes during Timber Ho 96 , The guy who climbed the ski lift and was shooting off Roman candles during Simple at Sugarbush 95 and the Large George Jetson Doll that did the whole 95 summer tour. Burger Balls. Uno cards,grilled cheeses, and sammy smiths......... I almost forgot...
4-7-03-TAB Internet lottery?? Oh brother...
Baba Olatungi died today on his own birthday.
Play some music to honor his passing.
4-5-03-Theres a Time/Life "sounds of the 70's" CD set being sold on TV called "Dreamweaver's" It has every fantasy cover song Phish hasn't played yet.
Its been a hectic week. I have so many projects going at once
its hard to keep track of it all.
But im pleased to say that most everything is running smoothly. The weather has been beautiful, cool at nite , hot today. Gathering everything together, gonna make it all work out. Its hard to stay in touch with everyone but i will try to make contact with everybody this weekend when my phone is free.
Can someone explain how this is possible? I did it over and over
again and it nailed it 100%
We think its a timing thing. Psychic Computer . Thank you for you responses!
3-30-03-The creative process is screaming along. The Juggernaut is at it again.
3-28-03- Its amazing how excited everybody is! This is going to be the best summer of our lives!
"This time, all proceeds will go into aviation improvements at the base,
which was once home to B-52 bombers and other warplanes."
TRANSLATION:? We will be rebuilding and reinstating a military air base here again because
of the totally fucked up world we live in, good bye limestone.
Moley! 21 SHOWS!
3-25-03- I'm Listening to Pink Floyd 2-28-80 in AWE , those shows must have been absolutely incredible.
If you have a copy of Pink Floyd doing The Wall live in 1980 bust it out , it holds an intense relevance today.
been a day or two since my boys from NC came down for the winter
music festival. We had a
good time, you all are always welcome! They ran into Dj's they wanted to meet and I adopted a new kitten that wandered into my yard "Little Man". I cant wait for Limestone.
LIMESTONE?!This is the best news I'veheard all year !
This will help us in the "TURNING AWAY."
absolutely appalled at the way the war is being brought to us
as a form of FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT.
Its a disgusting reflection of what mankind has become.Anger is not the emotion. Absolute contempt and apprehension of the diabolical future that is looming in the near future, makes me uneasy.
3-19-03- Well , I've had the chance to listen back and forth from TAB to Phish and i have to stand by my earlier statement that TAB is better for dancing because it's more mature music. And in my book better dancing=more fun. More fun=better. Granted if you catch "show B" where trey conducts the band for 20 minutes you will want your money back at the end of the show. Show A on the other hand Trey is spraying us down with the hose. IE: First nite RED ROCKS 2002. A factor that simply IMHO did not happen this winter .
(8 minute Free?! yawn.)(back to back sample?? Weak.) They've gotten too big and there are too many gawzers"eye humping" Trey instead of raging.
Even on TAB tour , especially TAB tour.
Phish is a GREAT HOBBY, like collecting stuff or watching a long running soap opera, waiting for the next big EPISODE, because they have a pattern of busting out huge out of NOWHERE. & us Totally brainwashed fans will relentlessly follow them around hoping to hear some deviation from the NORM.
And we call it amazing.
3-18-03-We buried Tootsie , my dog of 12 years today. We all cried but are relieved as well.
hope someone writes some good music while all this suffering is
going on. Walls of the Cave just isn't going to cut it for me
, We need more heartfelt soulful sounds to sum up the wickedness
Although it does seem that Round Room is a protest album, remarking on the sign of the times.
63rd BIRTHDAY PHIL!
It looks like genius has a soft spot for March!
When asked how World War III would be fought, Einstein replied that he didn't know. But he knew how World War IV would be fought: "With sticks and stones!"
