Ok... They say it's a marathon, not a sprint. But I always forget about that on day one. I've been drinking pretty consistently since m last post here... That was 17 hours ago.

Somehow, I'm actually not even drunk.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Obvious first question is obvious.
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

Somehow, this photo makes me feel, at once, both great joy and a mild hangover.

Pete Fountain passed away a few days ago at the age of 86. One of the torch bearers of that classic New Orleans sound. Performed at Jazzfest 40 times. Performed at 5 White House state dinners. Survived by his wife of 64 years. RIP.

I liked this story:

Quote
Mr. Fountain began to play clarinet at the urging of a doctor, who said it would help build his lung capacity. He began performing in nightclubs at 15, alongside many of the founders of New Orleans jazz.

When one of his high school teachers reprimanded him for sleeping in class, Mr. Fountain explained that he was working nights on Bourbon Street. The teacher asked how much he made: Mr. Fountain said he took home $150 a week.

“He said, ‘I don’t make that — go turn in your book,’ ” Mr. Fountain recalled to the New Orleans Times-Picayune in 1997. “He wrote my mother a note saying, ‘Let this boy get some sleep so he can work at night.’ ”
