New Year’s Runs: Phish New Year’s Run – Eternal Joy & Never-Ending Splendor [Hidden Track]

Nobody ever really knows what to expect when it comes to Phish, especially come New Year’s, but today we’ll take a look at history to highlight some of the great moments in years past and assess how similar elements could play out during this year’s festivities.

Videocasts: Dinner and a Movie – Episode 1 [Online Phish Tour]

Introducing Dinner and a Movie, a new video podcast where myself, Adam and Guy sit down to dissect a new Phish video clip each week.  Think of it as DVD commentary, except instead of some boring movie “director” talking about his “vision” (whatever those words mean) you have three certified experts (certification valid only in Vermont and upstate New York) talking about the types of faces Trey makes when he Trey-gasms all down his Trey-knees.   There may also be some very serious music discussing going on as well, depending on how sober Adam needs to be to operate his microphone (answer: zero sober).

Songs: Is Mike’s Song Trapped In Time? [Online Phish Tour]

My original intentions for this article were to compile my wishlist for the New Years Eve run at MSG. With “black Friday” in the rear-view mirror and Phish’s high holidays approaching, I thought I would discuss some things I hope we get during the upcoming four night stand. The problem is that atop my list is “Mike’s Song” – a staple in Phish’s catalog that has predominantly eluded fans during “3.0.” I have been craving a thick and evil “Mike’s Song” that would transcend the tune, but I continue to yearn. So my attention shifted from assembling a list of potential New Years gifts to examining “Mike’s Song;” a former improvisational champ that is now a shadow of itself. (I intend to put out a wishlist as we get closer to the mini run; however, let’s focus on “Mike’s Song.”)

Podcasts: Analyze Phish – Episode 3 [Earwolf]

Two episodes in and Scott Aukerman still doesn’t like Phish. What are we going to do about it? We’re going to bring in Adam Scott, we’re going to stick to the jams, and we’re going to see what happens! Join us on this tour through the cosmos (sorry) and continue to leave your drug advice in the forums.
