I'm not dead (yet)

by Yome NetSan 2. October 2014

Yes, I'm still here !
Well, kinda... not too far at least. 

Two articles since January, I had never been less diligent. The reasons are many: change of pace in my work and in my family life, loss of desire to write while the motivation and topics abound. And indeed, a particular topic blocked me psychologically. I have the will and some "duty" to finish the story of my trip to the United States for those two people waiting. But I want to make it right and it takes time, time that I do not really have or no longer really want to take. And when I want to write about something else, I tell myself that I have to finish this story first... It's a kind of weight that remained on my shoulders all these last months. But don't feel abandonned, I don't write more on my french website Gamusik... But in recent weeks, I resumed writing at times of the day that suit me best: morning and evening on the train, I write on my smartphone with a Bluetooth keyboard. All I'll have to do would be the formatting and adding pictures. 

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you know I'm still very active. I have read many books in recent months, I followed a fantastic summer tour, I went to a few concerts (although much less than 2013), I started playing drums (so to speak), I watched the last webcast in the middle of the night, I continue (with some restraint) collectioning retro games and vinyls, I enjoyed the new Phish album, I re-built my childhood LEGOs and I, most importantly, took my back guitar after 10 years ! 

While you wait for the next part, here is a small selection of what happened in 2014...

Wife's words

by Yome NetSan 30. March 2010

My wife doesn't care about Phish, at all. In french : "Elle s'en fiche" (yes, pronounced like the band).

She can't stand the instrumental parts of a song, written or improvised. Of course, she never listened to Phish by herself. When I put a CD in the car, that's when she's about to sleep during a long drive. After the ride, she tells me she couldn't sleep because of the noise...
Although she doesn't share my passion, she understand I can love this music and politely listen when I told her a Phish story, even with my habit of making a short story a verrrrrrry long one.


Beside all of that, every once in a while, she amaze me with her knowloedge about the band
She can name every band member with his main instrument and even describe them and recognize them on pictures.
"John Fishman is the one with the dress and the vaccum."
"Trey Anastasio is the one with the glasses, the beard and the hair who looks like you."
(Indeed, the '94 Trey shares a little ressemblance with the younger me)
"Mike Gordon is the one with the cosmonaut helmet." (refering to the Inside In cover)
"Page McConnell is the one with the piano."


She can list some song's or album's name :
"The best Phish song is Mmmmh Bop." (Athough I've already listened to this cover and I knew when and where it took place, she is the one who find me this video)
"Hey ! It's Phish on the radio !!" (Consequence of the previous statements. Yeald every time she heard a Hanson song on the radio)
"The most famous Phish song is Waste." (because it's the one which pops up the most on Youtube)
"The album I bought to you in Valence is the one with the moon on it and it's called Frampton House." (She mixed up Farmhouse, which is the one she bought, and Hampton is Alive, because I told her the reference to Frampton is Alive.

One day, we were joking about that and I asked her to name me some Phish songs. She went with "They must have a song with [insert random word] in it" and every word she said was indeed in a song's title !
After second thought, I realized that, with more than 250 orignal songs and more than 500 covers played, they sure have at least one song for most of the english words in the dictionary !

She has her own view on Phish concerts :
"They play vacuum to bring mid-aged women."
"They are so infamous that they have to play covers to be catchy."
"They don't have enough memory to remember their songs so they improvise." (In a way, that's a rather true statement about the 2004 Phish)
"They invent a new concept : disposable songs" (Because they played many songs only once)

 

She also has a percular opinion on Phish's music :
"Phish basically plays country." (Maybe because, when we are together, I choose songs that could please her and so often play My Sweet One, Scent of a Mule, Poor Heart, My Mind got a Mind of it's Own, Nally Kane, Sparlke, Water in the Sky...)
"Hey ! It's Phish on the radio !!" (Again, a consequence of the previous statements. Yeald every time she heard a country song on the radio)
"Every Phish song is high pitched notes (often played at the guitar) over random sounds in the background"
"Why didn't you make me listen to good Phish songs before ?" (while finding a studio version of Free on Youtube)


She says that Phish is all about food :
"They have many songs about food : cheesecake, something with Meat..."
"They must have another song with the word 'corn' in it because they play country music... oops no, it would be the case if they played 'pop' music !"
"They even have an ice cream named after them : Ben 'n Jerry's Phish Food !"

 

Of course, she says all of that just to have fun with me. She also says that sailing is not a sport...

What about you ? what are your wife/friends/children words about your favorite band or your dedication ?

The Virtual Band

by Yome NetSan 23. March 2010

I heard this expression when livephish.com released the Headphone Jam during de 2004/2009 break. The idea was that Phish would become a virtual band, not performing live but gathering on some occasion to record hour long free form jam. They would still be "broken up" but still playing in a way. I thought it was a good alternative at a time when reunion wasn't even hoped.

But from my point of view, Phish has always been a virtual band. I discovered them in 1997 with a studio album dating back from 1988. As i've never heard about them, I thought they were disbanded for long. Then I became aware that they were still playing lot of shows and starts following them on the Internet.

My computer has always been, and still is, my only link with the band. Browsing several websites and blogs about the band and fans, downloading audience or soundboard recordings of almost every show, watching, at first very poor and then very good quality, videos is a everyday occupation.
I remember watching songs' name appearing in setlists. At one time, some where only names as I haven't listened to them yet. I discovered Mike's Song, for example, with Slip Stitch and Pass.

Internet is also the almost exclusive way to buy Phish related material, although I managed in 1999 and 2000 to buy somes albums at my local store in France. This was possible, I think, because the band toured sporadicly in Europe and Japan from 97 to 2000, so their releases were better distributed outside the US. So I bought a lot of Phish albums, live releases, boxsets, dvds, books, goodies, promo cds. All of that gave me a rather complete view of the band, their music and their career, but in a virtual way. There hasn't been any physical connexion because everything went thought the computer.

Oh wait, There's one ! I managed to buy the Green Sparow, Mike Gordon's last studio album, with a signed booklet. The signed booklet was added to the package along with a regular sealed CD. I understand that it's a lot easier for every one (including Mike) to have a pill of single booklets signed without having to open a cd, pull out the booklet, sign it, pull back it inside and then send it.

Phish is the only active band that have a big impact on me that I've never seen live in concert. In fact, Phish is the artist entity that had the most impact on me for my whole life. Bigger than Michael Jackson back in the 90's, who is the artist that woke up my musical tastes (and I got to see him live in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1997).
The only other band for which I would travel the globe to see live is Pink Floyd. Another dream that I will never live for obvious reasons.

I felt very broken in 2004 when I knew about the break up, again by checking my emails. I cried when I read the news and I cried again on august 16th morning when I woke up and read the setlist and reports on the Internet.
I feel almost as broken up since I took the decision last week not to go to the USA this summer. I always fear that a break up (or worst) can happen any time and that I will never see them, althought the musical and health situation for the band is very different now than in 2004. I'd never listened to the Las Vegas 2004 run since this week, and I'm glade to enjoy the music I heared in 2009.
By the way, 2009 is the only year during which I listened to every single show played by Phish, at worst 2 days after it was played. In 2004, I listened to all of the summer tour but out of order and in the following month, without regularity. I started in January to listen to every 2002/2003 shows and even if it's not 1994 or 1998, I'm enjoying it very much.

By the way, what if all that music was fake ?

I thought about it from the very beginning when I didn't really know the songs and where to find shows. I happened to download concerts from other band (Cousin Fungus, String Cheese IncidentDave Matthews Band, Greateful Dead, or other jam bands) without noticing at first it wasn't Phish. I even end up burning CDs and labelling CDs as Phish by mistake. At the end of the day, I was still enjoying all this new music, whatever the band was playing.
The idea came then that, even if Phish wasn't really playing this music, I wouldn't care as long as I'm enjoying what I listen to. I mean Phish's music could be computer generated, the band could fake playing on stage (like lips-synch with instruments), all of their improvised moment could be writen in advance. Sure I'd be pissed to have been fooled but, man the music is fucking good ! That's why I enjoy live DJ sets like Daft Punk's Alive 2007. Everything is written and planed but the music is fun.

That's what's important after all : music.
Phish can still be a virtual band playing (or faking) in a far away country, I don't care as long as I can listen every day of my life to new music from them.

What's up ?

by Yome NetSan 25. November 2009

Nothing.

No new news about a european tour although some website are spreding the august rumors only this week.

I'm weak so I finaly bought things I saved money from :

  • Gravity Crash, PS3 downloadable game (7€)
  • Braid, PS3 downloadable game (10€)
  • The Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time mangas (2x 7,50€ saved each month)

I received an answer for my Joy box that doesn't make me laugh.

I'm listening to the Fall tour each day and I'm loving it althought i'd like more variety in setlist. I'm sick of Chalkdust Torture, You enjoy myself and Down with Disease.
