  1. Oh hey, sorry I'm late!

    I love being on PEI in the summer, but sadly I am a terrible tourist guide because I work most of the time. However, if you are in the Cavendish area, we should meet up for a beer at least. Maybe you can slip away to watch a Jays game at the cottage with me some evening?

    I'll drop you a line with some contact info.

  2. I am feeling a little bit bad about my earlier post. Upon relistening, there were definitely a few good grooves in the new music. Like I said, I still love them more than anything else and hope to see them soon.

    ::goes back to listening to 1993::

  3. Phish is my favorite band.

    I love Phish with every ounce of my being, and nothing will ever be able to approach the feeling of being at those shows I was at from the Great Went to Big Cypress. I still would probably rather be at a Phish show than just about any other show.

    But I can't dig too much on the new tunes. Ocelot and Alaska are the only 3.0 songs that I genuinely enjoy.

    My main problems are:

    a) Trey's guitar tone; what's with the treble, rebel? Gone are the liquid days of the hose. And would it kill you to throw a spacey loop out every once in a while for old times sakes?

    B) Vocals are cringe, brah. Lyrics and execution. This is why people new to Phish think I/we am/are barking mad for liking this band. For serious. I remember playing Rift to a music teacher friend of mine back in 96 or so and him saying then "I just can't get past the Kermit the Frog vocals". That was a studio album! And a pretty cool one from when they were singing pretty good! Things have deteriorated from there.

    Phish is my favorite band! And I hope they keep playing for a long time. But yes, I was horrified last night. I feel sad saying that. I hope they are having fun though. I am going to listen to last night again and give it a fair shake. No matter what I'll keep doing couch tour and hopefully seeing a show every year or so if they tour.

  4. Hey peipunk,

    According to what you entered at Phish.net, today is the 16th anniversary of your first Phish show! To help you reminisce about the 16 long years since walking into Loring Commerce Center at Loring Air Force Base in 1997, we invite you to visit http://phi.sh/970816 for the setlist and download links.

  5. Hunter's Alehouse just tried to play the "extreme" angle:


    6oz Island Beef burger, topped with two Chicken Fingers, Lettuce, Tomato, The Factory Cookhouse Creamy BBQ Sauce, sautéed Onions, Cheddar Cheese on two Grilled Cheese Bacon Sandwiches, with a deep fried Dill Pickle wedge
  6. My favourite so far was the Mondo Burger from the Merchantman:


    6oz of Island Beef, Havarti Cheese, grilled Portobello Mushrooms, crispy deep fried Red Onions, Peppered Bacon, Spring Greens, Jalapeño Corn Salsa, Avocado Mayo, Chipotle Mango Mayo, on a toasted Sesame Bun, and topped with a Pepperoncini Pepper and Cherry Tomato
  7. PEI Burger Love

    This has been a fantastic promotion/event on PEI for the month of April. Some of the restaurants have sold over 3000 burgers so far (PEI is a small place, I think that's a lot).

    I have not been able to get out a lot so I have only had 5 so far, but they were all really good.

  8. I had the pleasure of getting to know Jay Smith and his music a couple years ago. The drummer I play with was filling in with his band in Charlottetown, and I was so blown away, I went with them to see them play the next night in Moncton. We had some good times and good laughs.

    His album is amazingly, incredibly good. I recommend everyone go here and listen to a couple tracks:


    My favourite tracks are Perfect View, Hurts Like Hell and Partner in Crime, but the whole album is great from start to finish.

    So sad.
