    I did Cypress and Superball. Even if I never attend another fest, I can still die a happy man, because I WAS AT BIG CYPRESS!!!
    Need I say more? Except maybe one word...

    (saying it like i'm pissed)

    I was gonna do Dicks, or maybe Alpharetta, but now I think i'm gonna save a few bucks this summer, and just wait for Halloween in Vegas (a LOCK!) and NYE in Miami (looking good this year!)

    #24 2 years ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    I know there are a few other phish head pinballers...
    where you at?

    Last year at Dick's, I walked past a car in the parking lot with a pinball machine in the back, and LIONMAN license plates. Was that you? Did I already ask this? Sorry....lost my mind just a couple of times.

    Hey whysnow, do you like art? Have you seen this recent work from David Welker? Revisiting his iconic Rift image, 25 years later!

    Maze Graphite (resized).jpg

    #35 2 years ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    Yup, wife and I are friends with David. Most of our main room is Welker giclees and originals from over the years.
    Love his maze piece. Go check out A Walk In The Woods painting. david made that piece for me. I gifted to wife for our wedding anniversary a few years back.

    Wow...that's f'ing awesome!! As i'm sure you already know, A Walk In The Woods is one of those older prints that never seem to pop up for sale anymore, like Levitator. You commissioned the OG??....that's f'in craaaazy!!!

    David is such a nice guy. Took time out of his day to give me & the wife a tour of his studio in NYC when we were there in the summer of 2016. I wound up purchasing this original, which hangs in my home along with most of the Phishy art print heavy hitters like a Rift giclee, The Mound, Lengthwise, Woodpecker Tsunami, Lizard Land, and River Town. Can't wait to hang The Maze in a few months!!!

    But own the OG AWITW?!? You win, sir!!

    #37 2 years ago
    Quoted from simplykind:

    Badass on the Welkers! I was hoping to hit the Maze drop but didn't get so lucky.

    That shit was brutal. I went for the full set, but my bank declined the charge for some fraud protection security verification text message BULLSHIT.
    That was NOT a happy day.

    #46 2 years ago
    Quoted from simplykind:

    Was unaware of this... pretty awesome. A pinball lounge at Superball.
    » YouTube video

    It was AWESOME!!!
    Fish was hanging out in there for a bit, talking to people and playing pinball, when they first opened the Ball Square grounds at 6pm on June 30...before it got too crowded.

    This thread has been too quiet.

    Too early for Halloween predictions? Ok.

    How about trying to guess what the new flavor from Ben & Jerry's is going to taste like?

    This t-shirt, featuring new art by Jim Pollock, was spotted on employees at a B&J scoop shop. It has been 'unofficially confirmed' that this new flavor WILL NOT be a Curveball-exclusive limited product. It will be available at B&J scoop shops, and for online orders, packed & shipped with dry ice.

    #49 2 years ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    what summer and fall shows are you hitting up?

    Alpharetta for summer, and i've put in PTBM requests for Chicago and Vegas.

    Miami NYE is looking good now!!!

    #52 2 years ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    Miami NYE would be grand! Went in 09 and had a good time.

    Miami '09 WAS grand! One of my favorite gags ever!

    Now, Miami '14......THAT one....well.....lets just say it left something to be desired.

    Ummmmm, yeah? That was like 18 years ago...

    14 years actually. Last week was the anniversary.
    But yeah, brazy....umm....they've been back together and touring regularly since 2009, brah.

    #60 2 years ago

    Got my Vegas PTBMs. Shut out of Hampton and Chicago, though.

    #63 2 years ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    I was thinking the Hiatus in 00'?
    "Break up" was 04'?
    I skipped all of 2.0 era and was fortunate enough to see my first show in 94' and a bunch during 1.0
    I think I have gone to another 40 since 3.0 era.
    I dont think I missed much during 2.0

    Yes, breakup was '04.
    I skipped MOST of 2.0, but there were a few highlights. 'The Return' at MSG....IT....Miami NYE name a few.

    #75 2 years ago

    Superball was tons of fun, but the way I see it......I was there for Big Cypress, so....worst case scenario, I can pass on ALL subsequent Phish Fests and still die a happy man, knowing at least I was there for THE BIG ONE!!!

    The next fest will be something special for sure, but aren’t they all?
    The band OWES us nothing beyond refunds. This was nobody’s fault.

    I just hope you don’t believe EVERYTHING you read on PhantasyTour. LOL! Because you really shouldn’t believe ANYTHING.

    #96 2 years ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    seems plausible to me and would have been awesome!

    Sure, it’s plausible. But it’s also 100% fantasy.
    Seems to me like the “theme” of Curveball was related to mathematics, as the campgrounds were named after different kinds of curves.
    Furthermore, the big silver ball was already used at Superball IX, where they ALSO already had a Pinball Lounge!

    Sure, it would have been awesome. But it’s also just some dude’s pipe dream.

    PhantasyTour is a complete and total SEWER. Now THAT is a cold, hard FACT!

    #98 2 years ago

    Just remember....THE OCEAN IS LOVE..... but it’s also contaminated.

    How about that Kasvot Vaxt???
    What an incredible run of shows! Vegas was so much fun!!!!!!!!

    #105 2 years ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    Honestly still a bad taste in my mouth from curveball

    That bad taste you are experiencing might be caused by excessive levels of TURBIDITY.
    Remember........the ocean is LOVE.......but it's ALSO contaminated.

    No Summer Tour for me. Stuck in El Paso all summer long!
    I hear rumors about NYE in Vegas this year. Crossing my fingers on that one.

    #123 1 year ago

    Charlotte was BY FAR the best show of the weekend.
    Set I last night was good stuff, but even the encore was not enough to save Set II.
    Bangor is about to get destroyed.

    #140 1 year ago

    I’m happy for all the 3.0 kids that are ranting and raving about having been at this show. It was fantastic, certainly.

    But NOTHING Phish EVER does will even remotely compare to BIG CYPRESS. That was the big one. That was the one to be jealous of.

    There are only two types of Phish fans. Those who were AT Big Cypress, and those who can only WISH they had been there.

    #142 1 year ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    I was at all of the big ones. Clifford, Big Cypress, the balls, etc...
    Outside of the festivals, safe to say the Alpine trio was pretty epic (no 3.0 noob here as my first some was in 94'), for sure some of the top stuff in 3.0 and the most cohesive and fun playing I have seen since they returned in 2009.

    Didn’t mean to imply that YOU are a 3.0 kid. But I know a lot of them, and their ranting and raving about Sunday’s show makes me roll my jaded old 1.0 eyes.

    #146 1 year ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    so you are saying... you were not there

    No, I was not. Fortunately, couch tour takes away MOST of the sting!

    Quoted from murdock:

    Alpine Valley was a blast. I saw a couple pinball shirts over the weekend.
    Anyone see 'Between Me and My Mind' last night? I thought it was a great look into the Trey and the band. Very candid and fun. Loved the credit sequence that was added.

    The movie was fantastic. Loved the scene in his old house. And Jon Sullen Melancholy!

    #148 1 year ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    so not worth watching in that format.

    Definitely wait. It's worth it. Great movie. I was surprised it was playing in El Paso TX! Made a few new friends at the theater.

    That second set last night........oof. Not even a Chalkdust Torture Reprise could really save that one!!!

    In other news.........I FEEL I......NEVER TOLD YOU.........THE STORY OF THE GHOST!!!!!!!!!

    #160 11 months ago

    crazylevi I seem to remember a Phish friend of mine telling me he's related to you know a Mike H. down in South Florida?

    #161 11 months ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    Will be my first visit to MSG

    Really? First visit ever? That's AWESOME. You are gonna have a great time.
    When the band really gets goin', and everybody in the room is having the time of their lives, take a moment and just try to stand perfectly still. That's when you can really feel the building itself dancing. It's an incredible feeling!!!

    #166 11 months ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    what is the jump zone specifically? floor or anywhere in the 100s?

    I've always found I could feel it anywhere in the the entire thing is built on a floating floor, above the train station.
    I will say that the effect seemed the most pronounced to me when I was in the low 100s BEHIND THE STAGE....however....that may have just been because it was 12.31.02 and people were extra super duper happy that Phish was back from the hiatus. Mmm that Piper. Thank you, Tom Hanks!

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    best way to do it IMHO!
    Phish is great sober! So much to experience that drugs are just a distraction for me.
    Get ripped at home on couch tour. In person shows are sober affairs for me.

    So so true!!! Agreed 100%.

    12/30/19 Set II was amazing.


    Other than that, meh.

    Spent the last few days re-listening to Big Cypress.
    Holy hell, that was the big one! Feel fortunate to have been there to witness it in person.
    Can't wait for the eventual box set, but DAMN those AUDs still sound great!!!!

    #178 10 months ago
    Quoted from Rondogg:

    Big Cypress had some highlights but was too slow and meandering. Hard to listen to other than for posterity.

    You are certainly entitled to your "slow and meandering" opinion...they certainly took their time and were in no rush.......but if by meandering you mean convoluted or undirected, I disagree 100%.

    Furthermore, I would bet money you were not in attendance, as you sound kind of salty about it, tbh.
