2. December 2009
I'm still up side down with the music.
Ok, I don't listen to Phish for 26 years but still there first show was on 2nd December 1983.
Part of my little celebration here will be to catch up with the present by listening to the Set II of the 29th November show in Portland. This way, i'll be ready to listen to MSG I tomorrow.
I hope that this flyer will be well spread amongst phans tonight for a big Happy Birthday chant !
I also got some presents by post this morning and one of them made me laugh.
So I received Phish: the Biography, a book about the band written by former senior editor of Rolling Stone Parke Puterbaugh. I read good and bad reviews of it (respectively in PT and Relix) so I can't wait to read it. The book is bigger than expected and with a hard cover.
Don't expect a lot of picture like in The Phish Book. It's all text with a small bunch of pages with some black and white photos in the middle. Some of them are really old and quite funny.
The laugh of the day was provided by livephish.com.
I ordered on sunday the 22th the 3 Limited Edition slotMusic cards of Festival 8. And yes, I received them today, a week and a half later. The small usb mini-sd card reader come in a plastic cd-size case with a custom Festival 8 cover. There is no track listing on the back because the 3 inlays are exactly the same (it reads "10/30, 10/31, 01/11/2009"). The only difference between the 3 is a little sticker with the date written on it on the back of the case. There's a big picture inside the sleeve but I don't know if it was taken during the festival.
I wonder if the micro Sd given (or sold ?) during the festival (or here) came with this same case. I could be as it could have been printed before the shows (if the inside picture is from this summer).
Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for my Joy Box which should have been shipped (thanks to a 59$ fee) on the 17th November. I will sure check the date and price written on the parcel when it'll arrive.
I got a blank space where my Joy Box should be !
