For the first time in fifteen years, Phish is coming to Charlottesville. Moving up from Trax and U-Hall, the quartet has graduated to the JPJ. I don’t think it would be a stretch to propose that this is all Coran’s doing. Thank you Mr. music mogul. Between the Jefferson opening around November and Phish landing in December, Charlottesville looks to be resurrecting some musical spirits. This will actually be Phish’s eighth concert in the city. Check out the stats of their previous trips below. Note that their 1990 concert is not included as they have no known setlist. These statistics are from the original Phish stats site, ZZYZX’s Phish Stats site.

Hello everyone!Â Pleased to meet your acquaintance.Â This here is a blog and by golly we are going to blog some.
Hey look at these guys!Â If you didn’t know, Phish reunited on March 7, 2009 in Hampton, Virginia to rock our brains out.Â Touting their Phish economic stimulus plan and scheduling tour dates around the country for summer, Phish ensures that all Hooters will serve a week’s worth of wings with beer and the local gas stations will have no Camel Lights for quite some time.Â Indeed these are quite exciting times for all corner stores within a 2 mile radius of any venue.Â For Seven Eleven specifically, I suggest they stock up on Doritos and that nacho cheese stuff… quite tasty.
How does three nights of potential and almost five years of waiting feel and sound like when these guys hit the stage?Â The crush of the crowd against the gates to go through the checkpoint was picking people off their feet.Â Inside the venue people would sprint be sprinting right to buy a poster, left to get some Page side action.Â Finally the lights went out and it was on!Â Â Have a listen to this fluffy fluffy head opener in juicy 24-bit [Right click to save as FLAC] or poser low end [MP3].
Some debate has gone into what the opener meant for the band.Â Fluff Head is quite symbolic for its lack of being played for so long.Â In the end, after Phish played songs from ever album they had, the song had one meaning.Â They are back baby.
In closing, Phish is back and this is a real post.Â You lucky people, this site has various side projects that never hit the scene.Â Perhaps soon I will utilize some of the potential of the intertubes to deliver music.Â I think it is getting cheap enough!Â Fear not for I cannot let this crappy site die!
there you have it folks. progenitor and author of the sipder flies himself, mr. crazyredbeard, will be painting for the Everyone Orchestra at the 10,000 Lakes Festival this summer. i post this not to toot my own horn mind ye. i’m a humble man.
i post this to FREAK THE EFF OUT! i’m honored that EO would even think to have me back. i was lucky enough to paint for them for three nights this past Fall, 10/06-10/08/06 and was able to sell two out of the three paintings i created. the music was amazing, the musicians top notch and the experience one to remember. i’m certainly pleased to say the least that they think enough of my work to want to have me back. 🙂 God is good.

Word of the Day for Thursday, June 01, 2006
junta HUN-tuh, JUHN-tuh, noun:
1. A governmental council or committee, especially one that rules after a revolution.
2. A closely knit group united for a common purpose and usually meeting secretly; also called a junto.
His greatest fear, said Wole Soyinka, the Nigerian Nobel laureate and ardent foe of military rule, is that with the death of one tyrant, the world will not press for the entire junta to step aside.
— “Nobel Winner Calls for Nigerian Ruler to Release Political Prisoners”, New York Times, June 12, 1998
The Greek junta that seized power during 1967 mobilized the courts against its foes.
— Charles S. Maier, Dissolution
Two days after the coup, the junta announced that General Videla had been designated President of the Nation.
— Marguerite Feitlowitz, A Lexicon of Terror
Still, the resemblance to political revolution is, in important ways, only metaphorical. Computer nerds aside, there is no junta driving this process of change.
— Andrew L. Shapiro, The Control Revolution
Junta comes from the Spanish word for “joined” (hence, a group of persons joined for a common purpose), from Latin junctus, past participle of jungere, “to join.”
