amazing day! Its really nice outside today!
Marc just hooked me with an Allman Bro's show with Jerry
Garcia and it's dripping !
Whipping post with Garcia, Betts, and Haynes?!?
Someone please hip me to the line up of the Almans in1989.
Encore 1st nite-
downloaded one of Mcglaughlins latest shows and itscompletely ripping.
it finally warmed up today but it rained early in the morning so
its gray outside and soaked but its warm. Had dinner at Gail's house
the other night, great food fun people. Thanks for having us!
Finished pressing and printing for the most part , now im looking
for a scooter to cruze southbeach with. The one im looking at is
Yet Another cool night outside , we took a walk on the beach
last night and it was tolerable.
Almost made it to see Lord of the rings 3 but decided to wait for
Playstations Lord of the rings video game is pretty cool as well,
Adam just lent it to me along with another wicked game from rockstar
games. Almost too graphic for me.
coldest day yet. Mid 40's at night! I wonder how long it will last.
Happy holidays everyone!
chilly day in south florida, but warmer than yesterday. Almost done
with all the designs so i can focus on the food thing. Trey and
Dave on letterman again tonight. I noticed Trey dosent really rip
it on tv, but i bet the shows are decent.
and dave on letterman tonight!
A beautifully cool day, Actually kicked on
the gas heat. Walking around in a hoody im warm. Made the
final payment to the Mystery Ship and discussed the weather with
Holly. She said it's never been a problem. There are shades on the
ship to block the wind and she said that with 50 people grooving
it will be warm. She also mentioned that smoking is preferred on
top. My biggest issue is keeping the food hot till 130 am. Its going
to be a matter of getting someone to bring the hot food
to bayside so we can put it on the sterno trays at 130am. Not an
Ill hafta get on the ball.
it got chilly tonite in the 50's.Its been doing that, Warm for a
few, chilly for a few.
Lets pray for some sunshine during the 4 day window. Either way
its not too cold for a warm hoody. For the ship ride if the weather
is ridiculous the captain will scoot us across quickly. It hasn't
rained at night for weeks so it shouldn't be an issue.
BAM.The NYE design looks awesome.We've redone the tshirt
and poster pages.
running smoothly, The mystery ship is going to rock. Arroz con pollo,
wings from hooters,black beans and rice, fruit salad, vegetables&
dips, huge mixed greens salad,
chips and salsa,soda, booze & pink champagne. I know i mentioned
it before but I really made the effort today to make it happen.
The Ladies at the supermarket said they use beer to cook the Arroz
con pollo.Ummmmmm beeeeer. The weather has been incredibly enjoyable!
A few cold snaps here and there as the air reaches us from those
It was hot today with a cool wind in the shade, t-shirt weather.
Miami beach is looking good. Getting a scooter seems to be the way
to go. Everybody is driving them and they are so easy to park. Traffic
was bad coming to the beach , it was pretty crazy. traffic can be
really awful here sometimes , were sooo lucky AAA is right down
the street . I've been talking to all of my kidz out there and people
are super stoked. I want to thank everyone again for making the
Mystery Ship a reality. I know it will be an amazing after party
We here at henster.com
would like to remind you this holiday not to support the faceless
corporate merchandise companies or that asshole
Waldo at knighthoodtees.com and his shit wagon of a money grubbing
company. They are blocking the unification of our scene.
Don't let them manipulate you into the rock-art rat-race. Corporate
logo rips are so 97' cheeze.
Where is the soul? What is the deeper meaning? Where is the heavy
Support your local artists and lot kids. The large corporations
don't care about love for the music or the scene. All they see is
dollar signs. You can make a difference by not supporting these
monsters and giving back to the scene. There are alternatives to
buying phish merch and waldos garbage. I am not groveling for business.
I actually care about US.
Yamabushi has nice
Good Family has cool gear, Erin sells girls clothes,
Jason lees makes nice posters, so does Scott
Cramner .Tripp sells shirts every show. These people are hard
core about the music and the vending supports the live music habit.
I should know , I do the same damn thing... SUPPORT YOUR SCENE!
Its up to us to create the environment in which we play.Ive noticed
alot of newbies coming to shows and standing there like wooden indians
cemented into the ground. Hell, we as a fanbase don't even really
go nuts anymore. Most people go now because its trendy.
If you are a dork ,please stay home, the rest of us are trying to
groove and your sucking the energy out of the room with your cigarettes
and your uselessness.
the video I shot at American Airlines Arena.
The weather is so nice outside. It rained briefly and now there's
a cool breeze makin my room very comfortable.Incredible.
Tomorrow ill make another movie of the walk to Bayside from AAA.
Im also going to buy the booze for the cruize. So any of you on
Ship have any SPECIAL requests for alcohol NOW is the
time to hit me up, I think ive got it covered though : )
I get a contact buzz just looking at
George Clinton's recent mug shot!
SAT December 27th...dj le spam spins Booty Bass at Poplife..I/O
Im not really a "booty bass" kinda guy but i know there
are a few of you out there...
got eye strain...
GETS A LITTLE HEAVY NOW........................
was talking with J and after much discussion we came to the conclusion
that our DNA is smarter than we are and that all it wants is to
do is propagate its self in the most successful way.
This means that it dosent care about riches or popularity or successful
careers. All it wants, is for humans to unite & stop killing
one another. To be prosperous in a loving ,nurturing , accepting
environment ,the most life inducing factor for humans. We thrive
and prosper when cared for and produce more humans when we unconditionally
accept one another. These DNA messages may have been reshaped and
"upgraded" several times.Evolving mercilessly onto mankind,
and morphing our cultures into all kinds of
ideologies and religions. All preaching pretty much the
same thing . Unity thru Love for one another and to prosper and
enjoy life. Unfortunately "The common error of ordinary religious
practice is to mistake the symbol for the reality, to look at the
finger pointing the way and then to suck it for comfort , rather
than follow it."-Alan Watts
I think this means that the humans are getting
caught up in a "my love is better than your love."
Ridiculous isn't it? Maybe when a DNA message dosent work out 100%,
DNA morphs and adjusts and tweeks the signal to be stronger. Now,
maybe that message of "love thy neighbor" has now been
forcibly upgraded by DNA, which only cares about the unity of its
hosts in order to protect its existence, is now saying "well,'
love thy neighbor collected a bunch of followers but it was not
quite powerful enough to unify ALL
mankind. Perhaps making muslims bow down to mecca 7 times a day
to drive home the honor their very existence, forced a different
kind of unity.Almost intolerant of any other "program"
besides"SAVE THE DNA BY UNITING MANKIND under this one idea
".DNA does not care about anything but its own survival and
only when man is at peace with each other will his chances for survival
rise. Maybe A next step in evolution could be mass empathy
or telepathy. Where everybody communicates the same idea/feeling
creating compassion for all DNA. DNA only cares about saving its
self and evolving ,and will stop at nothing short but bringing us
to the brink of disaster to show us how delicate a species we are
and that continued intolerance and war may bring humanity to an
end. Its up to US to nurture all of those around us, even if it
simply means to be intellectual compost for others to strive from.We
are being driven by an inner code that pushes us to succeed . Perhaps
this code to unify is sometimes perverted
and twisted for the love of ones "OWN KIND OF DNA"
Perhaps the Nazi's were being controlled by a powerful DNA message
to "Unify and save our DNA" Obviously this was disastrous
and failed, but remember the same message
was there. DNA does not care what message it is .Even
if its evil . All DNA cares about is " unite as one to
succeed ". There seems to be a pattern forming and the
different groups of DNA are battling it out for supremacy!!! Each
group involved in a delicate game of "Who's got more conviction."
I would have to say that The DNA "conviction" message
is a little stronger in some groups than others. Especially if that
group has experienced a holocaust of some
kind. Their DNA pool then reacts in a defensive major comeback for
survival and thrives! Need i name
examples?! This ever evolving reality is always changing and is
hardly fixed. Even if seemingly stagnant for 1000's of years, the
development of mankind is slow, and we will be transformed in one
way or another by the undying will of our smarter half-DNA.
that was a good doob! what the hell did i say?!

was on planetallie.com
and i found some cool links and an upcoming
event in NYC that i'd LOVE to witness
for myself, & perhaps see some good music for a change.If your
lucky enough to go to this show Please
tape it for me.Or art least tell me how it was.
is a sick performer.
SHOW OF THE WEEK: if you're anywhere near nyc this tuesday (12/9)
we order you to see a very rare and wonderful performance by "take
a seat" featuring Brian Haas, Mike Dillon, Skerik & Bobby
Previte at the Knitting Factory's Tap Bar. you just might poop in
watching a show on Viruses like Ebola ,West Nile ,SARS & Monkey
Pox and it seems like mother nature has its own karmatic defense
mechanism. Humans have abused animals and exploited them for food
and pets to such a degrading state that nature is telling the humans
to "back off" with these awful diseases that they say
we "will be fighting forever and will never fully conquer"

M FINALLY HOME -It was so good to see so many old friends and people
that i haven't seen in a long time. I wish you all the best and
maybe we'll see you down here for NYE.
you "Tampa-Hyper- Matt" ,
you've obviously been eating the peanuts out of Treys shit.
I'm "positive" about one
thing, you need to get laid or something. Good luck .
been home one day and i think i may have the flu. I'm gonna fight
it but my lungs feel like sandpaper.
friend joe told me about his friend who found a Coyote on
the side of the road and made it into a hat.
Boston Phish-20th anniversary
Harry Hood, Cavern, Birds of a Feather, Ya Mar, Horn, Piper, Anything
But Me, Water in the Sky, Down With Disease
Rock and Roll> Weekapaug Groove> Tweezer Reprise, Frankenstein>
Kung> Frankenstein, All of These Dreams, The Wedge, Boogie On
Reggae Woman> Cities, Maze, Waste
second set was hilarious!
frankenstein>kung was truly bizarre almost too much.
Even though it wasn't the biggest jamfest I still had fun. Boston
was the best of the 4 shows but nothing super special. The montage
video was cool. It just seems like phish is winding down as a band
and the fan base is full of kids who are pretty inept at how to
react to music in general.
I had more fun hanging out with my friends troy merri jon rosie
mike smoo and the mass pack than the actual show. I guess that's
the way its going to be from now on.
and Mark drove us all the way to Boston you guys rock!
We had a bite to eat
Bolted back to meet troy amd merri and jon.
We partied, and then piled in with our huge group,Getting in was
a total sheep herding disaster because the crowd was sooo thick
you could barely move.Jay bird stacey dennis PK Josh and the crew
came bulldozing through the crowd and we jumped in the train and
we pushed our way to the front
of the line where the sheeple just made way for our obnoxiousness
At first we decided the best way to stay together was to go up to
the 300's but I motivated the MASS PACK down to the "preferred
seating" and after a few skillful maneuvers over the wall we
were.S-T-Y-L-I-N ! ! !.
The effect on the bass during Boogie on was out of control it just
kept going and going.
the show it was so fucking cold I couldn't stand it,
we raced for the Holiday Inn to meet up with Matt before heading
back to our hotel.We RAGED It OUT with 15 people or so just puffing
out and laughing at everyone who was hurting themselves trying to
do whippits out of this canister.
arrived at the Crown Plaza Hotel ,what a party!!
Wished Senior a happy birthday and went to the show.
we took over a section of seats behind the tapers with all the Maine
kids and the carolina krew.

Nice jam out of Wolfman's Brother (so what) Guyute
SUCKS FUCK YOU
Good Times Bad times saved
the energy of the first set.
Tweezer to open was typically good with a sweet segue into 2001.For
someone who got their balls stomped by a Hell's Angel, Mike can
still bump the bass guitar,and did a wicked extended solo outta
YEM which was pretty thumpin and the jam escalated to a nice peak.
(Not as fat as the YEM from 11-9-98)
Then Jeff took the stage and PILAGED
the Camel Walk into funkytown!
Possum was interesting to hear jeff sing even
if he isn't the strongest vocalist. Too bad they didn't practice
the Long cool woman it was so slow and botched it was embarrassing
the Antelope was the same as usual but always
a treat compared to the usual crap they've been boring us with.
We bailed before the encore and scored a meatball sub and pizza
right next to the venue.
We stopped by Ryan's crib in
the ghetto and it was very nice! Got hungry.

show.We had a nice group of kids ragin by the taper section.Every
thing was cool and then they chopped the fucking head right off
the show with character ) and Friday . L-A-M-E.
Either way we had a really great time dancing
and partying with all our friends. After the show we walked back
to the car thru fake down , scored some fatty bombers and headed
back to the Jyatt. After a few puffs we located Damien at the bar
with more of our kidz chillin the bartender gave us a huge stromboli
which we devoured instantly.Some funny stories later we realized
that my tucket was with richie so we took a cab to the motel 6 and
scored my Albany ticket. THEN we headed to Genos for several philly
steak sandwiches , for us a some for troy and Merri at the hotel.Soooogood

it / they seem so bland...
Went to the show with lindsay troy ,rosie , mike, peter ,merri,
jon, at first we were in the 300s behind the stage but we stubbed
us all down ,actually getting caught with the lights goin out before
we all got together.One song later we were all on the floor rocking
with senior and robbie. and schwilly and allie and koskie.The taper
section was amusing at
"Whats the Use" was a long awaited song spat into
the worst show ever.
Nice seguay into 1st tube though!
(7-4-99 was the best WTU/Slave ever.)
bouncin opener was a clear message That Phish
was going to SUCK Long Island monkey nuts. Basically the
show was an insulting musical slap in the face.YAWWWWWN.
Unfortunately, we as a fan base are much to
blame for the tame show..
People are just standing there .(ISIO,ISA)
LIKE FUCKING WOODEN INDIANS CEMENTED INTO
THE GROUND. The ACAC
Bag had a cool fake ending into some meaningless frenzy
jam , trying to get the crown pumped, but it didn't work, the crowd
didn't go nuts .Everybody just stands there.
Then they play
that new song "Crowd Control" to actually
MOCK the audience ,and our general lack of interest
because the crowd is just standing there not giving the band any
a little groovy section next to the tapers section,
other than that the crowd was HORRENDOUS and not deserving of anything
much less good music. Way to let us have it boys!
One of the most blatant examples of a MUSICAL
SPANKING I've ever heard.
TOTAL FUCKING DRIBBLE. Contrived and usless, never to be listened
to again. FUCK IT.. Lets play the Mikes Song
I am not negative, that sucked. everybody hurts.
I'm at the airport using the free wireless
signal ! This is soooooo coool!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYBODY
concept of time and planning were a bit astray so were leaving tomorrow
I could go see spam in a little while if im brave enough to go the
12 blocks into the grove.
Well... we went to the grove and it was jam
packed with bass music and latin people. Culture shock. Since i
live here i never go downtown but it was so packed we couldn't get
into the show so me and adam played guitar till 3am.
want to offer my condolences to my good friend Paul whos mom passed
away at hospice the other day. Even thought it's a great loss, the
opportunity to be there at hospice
was a blessing. Much Love Paul and his family. See you soon bro.

You can tell the cops are getting off on the
violence, they LOVE it. They're eating it up like shit dripping

The Phish show is exactly where all that bullshit is going
down and im almost sure there will be a presence similar to what
you see on TV.
My old friend Eliah
came into town today, and It's great to see him.
Many years ago he turned me onto Phish for the first time by playing
He's such a talented dude, he plays the Chapman Stick.Check

It Still has the original air blown into it at the show. EBAY will
take care of it for me.
surfers toiletpaper is going for over 20 bucks!
Waves art show is promising.
We will hopefully draw a crowd big enough to
support this humongous effort.Its ALOT of work and all I did was
build the site. Lindsay is going bezerk trying to organize this
whole thing and it's stressful. Neither of us were promoters before
this so we are a bit amazed at the response.
Ship is filling up with kind peeps as well.
We've decided on 3 kegs of beer ,maybe only 2.
We'll have Sierra Nevada, Anchor Steam, and New Castle.
Maybe we'll have a friends truck waiting at the dock to pick up
the kegs to continue the party at our place afterwards.
food is still being worked on. Vegetarian and tropical delights
is my first plan.
Then catering for the carnivores will be settled last.

been thinking about my dream car . Still immobile. Condition grounded.
late nite forces me to sleep the day away grrr. Trying to get things
done in the 3 week period before the NE tour is my kinda last minute
adventure. I thrive under pressure. Thats the way its always been.
Too many distractions and no car so its been slow going. Id like
to thank Mike and Troy and Merideth for being there when we're in
need of a boost.You guys have been such great friends, I'm psyched
to see you guys.
Dosent it feel like these shows are the last
ones. I'm pretty sure they're not but it feels that way.
Maybe its just me, Ive been doing this for so long and for them
to play NYE down here seems like a fitting end to the whole tour
thing for me. 11 years I traveled around the fuckin country to see
these guys show after show. I've put in my time, blood ,sweat and
tears. What a Perfect send off.
Empty headed I stare at the screen. A pain
I cant identify" has now been identified as AIM. An icon is
used to convey
who we are and I change mine alot.
Here, in this place, my fingers tap out words
so that others may see them. I can barely read them myself. The
foremost intrusion is the incredibly loud barking of the dog and
the uncomfortable height at which
my computer rests in relation to my seat. After several hours im
in need of a massage but rarely get one.
I remember how long I waited for Big Cypress
to Go off and then it came and went.And Segments of the music there
was so "AMAZING" that everything else pales in
I've NEVER SPENT NEW YEARS ON MIAMI AND IM FROM HERE.
These upcoming shows will be totally unique.The last 4 night run
was in Red Rocks 96.
Never have they played on New Years in such
warm weather that everybody can just enjoy hanging out out side
on the beach. I envision drum circles till dawn. There will be a
huge sand castle with candles and huge towers. I see alot of people
eating fancy lunches and sleeping the whole day away.I can imagine
Ocean drive being shut down as thousands of freaky people mill about
the ocean side cafes and bars.Washington ave will be a parking lot
with lots of heavy bass pumping out the Escalade's with revolving
40" rims.There will be a humongous fakedown in the circular
walkway next to the AAA. I imagine riding a scooter all over Southbeach
visiting many friends
at all the crazy hotels . I see alot of people eating sushi and
cuban food.The ocean is a mecca for many. It will be chilly most
likely but this will not stop us as we enjoy such a rare treat as
jumping in the ocean in December. Im really psyched for every one
whos comming down.
These shows in my backyard are such a treat. Im hoping for something
I mean so blown up its READ ICCULUS.
Making these plans to go up north to do those
4 shows and get rides, tickets and hotels and then come back to
do these 4 shows in Miami is stressing me out a little.We had some
pretty good incentive to go but it fell thru. Id like some more
of my friends to scoop us up and take care of all those details
for me, we'll pay our way , just take care of the accommodations
and the ride.
Have Love, will travel.
made some really cool shirts today, great ideas pouring in all the
time make this job so much fun.
I'm glad everyone seems to enjoy the music
I've put to the site. Ill try to keep the songs relevant and
A BIG "U ROCK!" to Lindsay who's been working so hard
to make the Waves art show happen!
I gotta hand it to her, she hasn't stopped. Thanks to everyone
who's been trying to help her take on this massive task.She
really wants to make this happen for the community and im amazed
at all the work and contacts she's made. Still, there's alot to
consider and its all very intense. Id really like her to succeed
at this so she has all the support and help I can give.
I'm psyched to have such an eclectic group
working together for a common goal.
id like to spell out mad props to Andrew and his band The
Spam Allstars .
He and his band are flyin into NYC to open for
MMW on Halloween! THEN that
morning they're catchin a flight back to Miami and playin
event on Southbeach @ 10th & Ocean.. 12:30 pm the next fuckin
day!. That s hardcore.You guys mow NYC down to the ground YO.
See you at the FLUGTAG!P
OUT THE SUNBLOCK!

may have heard that Lindsay is working on having an art show at
the Wallflower Gallery, a gallery/cafe downtown during the holiday
run, the show is called, "WAVES " and it is in walking
distance from the AAArena. The Gallery would feature lot artists
Ryan Kerragan, Jason Lees, Scott Cramner, Emmy Bradbury, Melanie
Barnum, Melissa Capps, myself and other visuals. We're hoping
to make this vision come to fruition.
"Mystery Ship" is a done deal. Went
down there today (ill make a better movie tomorrow)and was
super pleased at the ease in which I was able to ge to the dock.Then
I met with Holly , a super nicer lady and we discussed the deal.The
ship is being renovated with new bathrooms and such so it will
be in great shape for us when we go.And we get to have our own
kegs and music. Its perfect.
Much thanks to everyone this is going to rock!.
IS GOING ABSOLUTELY APESHIT!!!
I haven't heard this town get this crazy
From out side my house I can hear people still honking their horns
and yelling and shouting, sirens and megaphones adding to the
People keep asking if there are tickets
to the Mystery Ship. Yes yes there are the Ship is Soul-ed out.
night was the RASA party at the Czech club. Damn fun for an event
thrown in Miami!>
Suenlo played first, a latin psychedelic rock band. The guitarist
sounded like he listed to the Dead, good stuff.
There were also these wicked tabla players scatting and playing
tablas. Most of it was outside and the weather was perfect. Once
it drizzled scaring the crowd inside for a second. We puffed and
ate vegan treats and sushi from several of the booths there , I
was looking into catering the Mystery
Ship with more upscale grub than pizza. Ill
take a poll and see what people want.
Then Spam hit
the stage for a short set, what a cool band , crazy samples of lawnmowers
and doors opening and shutting. I cant wait to see them on the 3rd
got the stack of tickets today for the mystery ship !.Now I have
to go down there and give them the loot and talk to them in person
so we can make accommodations for all of us to have an amazing time.

I saw the air guitar for

Somebody asked me for a copy of 10-22-96
so im listening to it now- it's average to boring.whateves.
like i said there were only a few stellar moments in 96- deer creek,
GOOD FRIENDS AT SEVENTH CIRCUIT PRODUCTIONS
HAVE AN EVENT(party)
THIS FRIDAY THE 24th: RASA
@ THE AMERICAN CZECH-SLOVAK CLUB LOCATED AT
13325 ARCH CREEK RD IN NORTH MIAMI !
days to halloween, I wish phish was going to play Electric Ladyland.
listening to Spam All Stars funk it up with Page in NYC.
I changed the boats name from Noahs Ark to "Mystery
I am really psyched about the whole boat thing, its so perfect for
what we want to do its gonna be amazing ; )
Please email me if you have
prediction-"Interesting Things happen with numerical patterns."
For instance, this coming Holiday
run has an equation that portends
a bust out show.
EXAMPLE: Dec is the 12th month. ------------------------------------------SO----1+2=3
It will be the 3oth day of the month ----------------------------------------SO----3+0=3
As it will be written in most set lists, the year will be represented
So in otherwords;12/30/03=3/3/3-and as we all know, 3 is the magic
Marks call De La Soul- 3 is the magic number : ).
Mcdonalds like consistency of Setlist integrity(regurgitation)
That Phish (and the Dead) adhere to is the statistical mathematics
of the songs probability to be played at that place in the ordained
space of a 2 set show.Then played repetitively until we are
so familiar with the flow of a concert that our behavior as an audience
is incredibly predictable.
am so pleased that we have the boat to whisk us away from downtown.
I've lived here many years but have never partied on NYE in town
like this before . I was always in New York seeing Phish or if I
was in Miami I certainly didn't go downtown to party. It's
going to be a fiasco down there. I'm gonna go downtown today or
tomorrow and shoot a video of the walk from American Airlines Arena
to Bayside where we will board the Party boat.10-19-03-
NYE COUNTDOWN Sweeet!
We have our own private party boat for after the show on NYE!
Creating a pavlov's
dog effect called Classical Conditioning a mild form of brainwashing.
EXAMPLE:The mathematical probability's of
songs that usually open a first set;
Phish'sHistorical 1st set openers: Runaway JIM, PYITE, ACDC BAG,Llama.
Dead's Historical 1st set openers:Jack Straw, Bertha,Cold Rain.
I'm going to assume we're on the same page
now about setlists being almost purely mathematical.
Then come the complexity's of equations.
Ex. Yamar and ACDC bag are often next to each other in the equation.
Statistically The number of times certain songs will be
played in ONE year is obvious.
EXAMPLE: SANITY- COL FORBIN"S- ICCULUS-HARUPA-FAHT-ELIZA-and
even now a days ESTHER will only
( if at all ) be played once year.
But When they are played we all go "YYYYYYAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!"
Because of the rarity of the Mathematical formula.
SO, by these standards and the consistency
of the sameness of the music, we are controlled by the mathematics
of music and its placement and duration. EXAMPLE: Phish has played
bouncin round the room the exact same way for 15 years.
The same goes for the Sloth, and Horn and for the MOST part Guyute.
once in Guyute)
If they were to ever aberrate from the norm
say, Bouncin>huge JAMFEST>Bouncin for 20 minutes, We as a
fan base would all go nuts and afterwards agree that it was the"best
Now having said this understand that they as a band have a profound
understanding of tension and release.
So they plan way in advance what are going to be the crowning
moments of the tour or show.
Back in 1996 Phish proceeded to (SUCK)play the most toned down tour
they've ever played DELIBERATELY.
All the while very strategically ,they were practicing for REMAIN
IN LIGHT and were setting us up so Crosseyed and Painless would
be the WATERMARK or pinnacle of Phish Bust outs.This has rang true
in Phish mathematics since 10-31-96. There is no denying it.
We are going to be LAUGHING as we sail by all the cars
stuck in traffic to Miami Beach.
If you haven't paid that's cool. Ill have the tickets in hand sometime
I have the down payment on the ARK.
Now we can have the tickets printed up and ITS ON! Thanks to every
one who has helped make this possible.
By Monday I will hold the seats for my friends who are undecided.10-17-03-"New
ones comin' as the old ones go. Everything is moving ,but much to
by larry carlson.10-17-03- First of all what a game last night ! Yankees
vs Marlins for all the marbles!
Jason's call? Marlins in 6 . Now to
the bigger news!>
"So , how'd you do ? Did you get tickets?"- is the quote
of the day.
I hope everyone got in the door. I got mine. And a few for my friends.
Now that the ticket nightmare is thru, I can begin hounding you
all to get on the boat.
I cant stress enough how much of a hook up the party boat next to
the AAA is!
You walk 500 feet and your at Bayside. Tickets
are still $140 for all 4 nights.
35 bucks a night)
The tickets are transferable fo those who might not go all 4 nights.
Traffic on NYE is going to be a NIGHTMARE FROM HELL.10-17-03-3:40AM
just got back from seeing Spam again.I can't sleep, we've figured
out where to go for tickets ,let's hope everybody and their brother
doesn't do the same thing . Good Luck everybody.-We
just came back from Sobe at Jazid seeing
All Stars on Miami beach and it was Bumpin!
I've been listening to Andrew spin records for 10 fuckin years and
his new band is incredible.
They begin by playing funk records and then the band lays down the
Afro/Cuban/psychedelic-funk, while Andrew mixes during the live
jam ,it 's too good.
Then he gave me a SBD of his band playing at
SOB's with PAGE in NYC and it's
Definitely my new favorite band.Hes gonna RAGE with Vida Blue NO
Gates mug shotl Nice collar!
Poor monkeys ..
The tension is building, .Its like the calm before the storm as
we await 10AM friday.
While you wait ,request to join my gang the"groveboys" ----> "http://www.gang-wars.com/
The final Countdown.......
No I don't work for nutella.Personally I think its great out of
the jar with a spoon. Enjoy!
I could care less about the news in general but I put on the TV
to watch nothing and theres Kobe Bryant, and then I think to myself, "this sucks i've got the
munchees," so I go for my favorite food in the whole world
and what do i see?
Hey man I dont know what homey did but if he likes Nutella he can't
be all that bad of a guy can he?Its
like this , If 80 people give me 100 ,We get the boat with no food
or beer. fuuuuck thhhaaat.
I want to kick pizza and beer so I have to collect 140.
The whole thing is gonna cost about 9000.
Please spread the word to our friends to send me MONEY immediately.
If I get half the loot by Friday , I will have the Tickets printed.10-13-03-Im
asking for the final go ahead from the people who have paid for
the Party boat,
If I don't get more respond$e by people who want to go by friday
night, ill just get a scooter : ).

I'm enjoying a Tahitian coconut
, it tastes like toasted coconut! Such an amazing exotic fruit.
only place to get them that I know of is the
farmers market on the weekends in Coconut Grove.
Congratulations to all of you who got tickets!
We got lucky with a pair of NYE tix and 1 Boston.
So.. we'll hit the Ticketbastard on Fri and try for the first 3
nights of Miami.
Then Ill try and get some extras for all my kidz commin down. That's
when I expect the boat to fill up.
I've been talking tot people and some people
don't think they will go all 4 nights. This is to be expected,
so if this pertains to you remember the tickets are transferable
so you can give/sell/trade them to your friends. I suggest leaving
the option open. Downtown Miami is Ghetto & you'll want to
vacate as soon as possible.
Unless your planning on going to after shows. Personally, im usually
DONE after a Phish show and all I want to do is relax with my friends.
The Party boat keeps everyone together after the party for a little
while and delivers us to Southbeach. Instead of us splitting up
and going separate ways, we get to hang out together and decompress.Its
the holidays and im just trying to show my northern folk a good
SAFE time.Southbeach will be bumping when we arrive.
ll have free kind beer and pizza and veggie platters each night
so we can get fed and get our drink on.
After the shows , if its not to chilly, we all should get blankets
and lawn chairs and coolers and hit the beach to watch the sunrise.Then,
go to Athens Juice bar for breakfast.Then
go to sleep for a few hours. Then wake up ,take a cab to AAA and
do it all over again.Ahhhhh...sounds
has it that all the downtown Miami hotels are full. If your looking
for hotels that might not be as expensive as South beach , try the
Sonesta in Coconut Grove. Its New and
pretty nice.It's located in downtown Coconut Grove, about 10 minutes
down the road from AAA.
We still need more cool people to reserve spots on Noahs
Ark . 10-10-03-Im
still collecting $ for the party boat.Id like to have the down payment
We had a great brainstorming idea tonight with some old friends
I like the documentary of phish in miami idea the best .
Id like to place my early request for any tix for the northern run.
The Mail order gods have spoken.
People must be going ape shit right now.
"We regret to inform you that you did not get the tickets that
you requested through Phish Tickets-By-Mail"-ouch.
have a few special things I like to do here in Sofla that only Miami
Drinking fresh fruit smoothies. Fresh pressed coconut milk is one
of my all time favorites.Athens Juice bar is where should be a daily
mecca when you get here .
We should be finding out about our tickets today or tomorrow.

Crazy Propaganda to make us look scary to all the other countries
There must be some psychological impact when you show people from
Afghanistan a clip of Arnold in "The Terminator" and
then show him running the state of California. We as Americans
must be thought of as reckless thugs firing up the machines of
war for profit and entertainment.10-7-03-I
just found another Party boat, "The Fiesta" to
ferry us for the 4 days from AAA to Sobe!
Im not giving up that easy. Much thanks to all those who have paid

10/7/94 - Debut of Guyute best Guyute
ever 12/29/94- Providence RI
& what's the one with the extended middle jam ? Merriweather
show of four on east coast.(
Nassau>Albany were The Worst Shows Ever.)
Remember the sign hanging across the buildings?
"Welcome federal agent's to the DEA narcotics convention."
-Worst Shows Ever.
They played Peaches twice in the west
THEN they got to the east coast , and in a 4 nite,two venue run
they played Caspian twice...(F-U-C-K--Y-O-U--A-S-S-H-O-L-E.)
On the 10-10-99 Albany Caspian... I
was ducking down 7th row center . & during
the quiet pause before Caspian busts, you
can hear me yell: ------>"PLAAAAY
PEEEACHEES IN STEAAAAD!!!!!
,and Trey actually flubbs the beginning of Caspian.
10/7/00 - last
show for over 2 years
10/7/03 - Formal
announcement of Trey touring as a member of Dave Matthews supporting
Matthews is taking a few friends out on tour this winter,
but they aren't his colleagues in Dave Matthews
Instead, the singer/songwriter will hit the
road with longtime sideman Tim Reynolds, Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio,
Anastasio-affiliated keyboardist Ray Paczkowski, and rhythm section
Brady Blade (drums) and Tony Hall (bass), who back Matthews on
his new RCA solo debut, "Some Devil."
The tour begins Dec. 12 in University Park, Pa., and will wrap Jan.
16 in Oakland, Calif. Emmylou Harris and Spyboy will also be on
the bill. Tickets will be available for members of Matthews' Warehouse
fan organization beginning Thursday (Oct. 9).
Anastasio will be wedging the dates into Phish's
previously announced fall tour, which begins Nov. 28 in Uniondale,
N.Y., and includes a four-show New Year's run in Miami.
That's alot of
shows before New Years. I was hoping they would be practicing for
something special for New Years.
I also wonder if they will be playing Dave's songs exclusively.It
sounds as if that's the case.
had to start a new page the last one was getting bogged. I'm gonna
leave up the Noahs
Ark till the 29th. Its lookin hopeless but it was nice to know
people were willing to try.
I keep thinking about "Tropical Hot dog
Night" Phish will probably bust out the hot dog again.
The new design Mark and I made looks awesome. I will spend some
time trying to get that together.
