Announcement: This Has All Been Wonderful…

For nearly four years we’ve aimed to highlight the latest and greatest Phish-related content and provide real-time reports from Phish shows through YEMblog.com, the @YEMblog Twitter Feed and YEMblog’s Facebook page on a frequent basis. That mission comes to an end today as I just don’t have the time I used to have to update the site and feeds as frequently as I did in the past. I took this “job” seriously over the years and did my best to keep the links flowing at a regular rate, something I’ll just be unable to do moving forward.

What does that mean for the future of YEMblog? Updates will be much less frequent that they have been in the past and we won’t be providing commentary from each and every Phish show as we have since Hampton. I came close to just stepping away from YEMblog all together, but after lots of internal debate and invaluable advice, I realized that I still love Phish and if I come across a fantastic video or blog post, I’d still like to have the option of sharing that find with other Phish fans. Who knows? Like Phish I could decide that I miss running YEMblog and put “my foot on the gas” once more. I’m going to take the next few weeks to see what it’s like to live my life without worrying about updating the site or the feeds.

Thanks to everyone who has ever written an intelligent article about Phish, uploaded video or audio, guest tweeted or did anything to help our cause. Without y0ur content there wouldn’t have been a YEMblog. Much appreciation to Todd Levy who built YEMblog.com and of course thanks to Jon, Mike, Trey and Page as well as the employees of Phish Inc. and Red Light Management. As for me, I’m still running Hidden Track with a fantastic group of passionate music fans, where we cover the jam, indie and classic rock worlds. I’m also a panelist on both the Type II Cast Phish podcast and the Game Tapes Forum listening parties. Besides that, I contribute to Relix Magazine on a regular basis and I’m a Jeff Waful + 1 producer. I’ve got more projects in the works, so you haven’t heard the last of me.

Much Love,
Scott Bernstein

  8. Thanks so much for all your hard work and dedication! Your site was visited by me on a daily basis. You have helped me learn so much more about the band I love and without you there is so much I would have never known. One of my favorites was the article written by the Japanese fan from the tour Phish did in Japan, it was so interest hearing a fans point of view from another country! I Wish you the best of luck!

    Peace, love & music…

  9. I just now saw this so sorry for the delay, but I’ve been taking my own little fan hiatus from Phish for a while (I guess until summer tour).

    Thanks so much for everything you do for the Phish community. This site has been a wealth of information and I don’t know how you kept it going. Great job and hopefully I’ll run into you again down the road.
