Pre-internet, pre-cell phone, pre-much of anything other than very knowledgeable DJs, used record store owners and a lot of weekend hours to kill, exhaustive search was the rule of the day. In the words of Cory Doctorow, those items and moments formed a poem and a story. With a lot of backstage prep, Phish rekindled that feeling for me, and probably for a few thousand other people too. With Yom Kippur approaching, we are bringing the days of introspection to a close. In a deep Phish jam, you hear the tension building as Trey or Page work through the minor chords from the major starting point, building and releasing repeatedly until Chris Kuroda bathes the band and audience in bright white lights, the band releases into a major chord resolution, and the glow sticks fly.
This is my pattern for the days of awe: tension, tension, release. Shine the white lights on the last year and the year ahead, and resolve to indeed resolve into a major Chord of Life. Significant noodling on the tail end of my last post brought me to a deeper answer to the question of why a mid year old man subjects his back, knees, and asthmatic airways to a string of Phish shows each summer.
We spent time in the ocean, on the beach, and exploring both old and new places — each summer led us to discover some new part of the island, or some new place through ads in the local papers , and to revisit favorites. It was the soundtracks of those summers that remain so strongly imprinted. The sights, sounds, and smells of Phish songs on summer tour create a poem, a short story that parallels one filled with fishing trips, raft burn, mini golf, arcade tickets, and soft serve ice cream.
The Snow Man
That composition of factors — amazing music, familiar faces and places with some minor annual variation, and shedding some of the usual constraints in favor of fun — is why Phish shows remind me so much of an LBI summer. When the summer winds down, we begin thinking about the next, what we missed and what we saved, the musical highlights and the friends, old and new, with strong shared passions. Epilogue and edit: I wrote this as the Curveball festival was cancelled, putting a damper on my plans to couch tour from a drier locale. This heartfelt piece on phish. Until we do it again, indeed.
Remembered how much fun each stop along the traveling circus is, when you introduce new friends to the biggest family on earth and run into old friends, friends of friends and several layers of transitive closure deep friends. I kind of got it, but also in that snarky high schooler way found it somewhat campy, until I saw Phish dig in for two consecutive nights.
It was a different experience. Got a vacuum cleaner solo, the electric drill, and a brown note.
Directed Drawing Resources for this Snowman Drawing
Not a Dali painting but just part of the fun. Standing in the lot, pre-show Wednesday, we saw a Chabad rabbi walking toward Shakedown, tefillin bag and kippot in hand.
We waved him in, introduced ourselves, and in the midst of 95 degree heat and humidity that makes Singapore jealous, we laid tour-fillin and said our blessings. The rabbi posted my picture in my Trey shirt, tour bag, borrowed kippah and tefillin on Facebook, only to have one of the Federation program directors who knows the rabbi recognize me. So tour family and our Jewish family and our community family overlapped in a Venn Diagram that gives set theorists shpilkes.
And so as couch touring rounds out the last few weeks of summer, and I attempt to clean and dry my tour bag the floor at Camden made the Madison Square Garden floor look like an operating room. Why not!

Tony Scott, jazz clarinetist and Scrapple From the Apple contemporary, penned the story quite possibly based on personal experience Google books reference to a jazz bibliography below and link to the original book :. I bring up Charlie Parker on Independence Day for three reasons: First, he indirectly shaped much of the music I listen to. Beautiful card Vicki! I love the way you cut the paper on the diagonal, it looks amazing! That notched corner rectangle die set is awesome and that Snowman is as cute as cute can be!
