Nice.

I listened to episodes 2 and 3 the other day. Let me join the others in saying I find the culture of rail-riding to be borderline insane.

I'm up to date on UtS now... and my one comment is that I find Tom's lack of knowledge in the areas he is covering as refreshing as it is surprising. I mean, it seems like in almost every case (granted it's just two areas so far, Rail riding and taping) he is just clueless... yet he is 20 yards from these people like a dozen nights a year for 30 years. I love it!

As for it being refreshing, I think a lot of Phish discussion out there comes from a place assumed knowledge amongst us. Tom seems to come without any of that baggage. It makes for a great listen.

Though, there are times when I'm like "the correct answer is out there and nobody here seems to know it." For example, the issue of soundboard patches. Paul allowed them in the 80's and there was a specific moment - like the beginning of 1990 or something, when an announcement was made to the community that patches would no longer be available.

Anyway. I'm loving it.

I'm having the same reaction. Asking myself, "How is this guy not at least equally as big a Phish geek as all the rest of us?"

Also, RJ, well done on the taping episode.

To some degree, Tom is trying to draw the answers out of his guests but he is also there to learn.
Tom may be one of the fans that's been around the longest but there are definitely folks who seen more shows. His experience as a fan is as distinct as many of ours and few of us know everything about everything.

As for the sbd patch question, I simply didn't see it coming. Hell, I wasn't expecting to meet Tom much less record a podcast that day.

New ep is up - Paul Glace the founder/owner of PT. Wonder if he asks how much he makes off the ads on that godforsaken site.

Most shocking revelation to me was that paul and his brother apparently make enough from PT that it is their full time job.

They're basically the nitrous mafia. They make boatloads of cash selling something the people are addicted to like crack while adding no real value to the scene.

That's harsh, I know. There is something unique about PT... and I've been on there for a decade plus... but it seems so half-assed yet apparently it's pretty damned profitable.

3 million views a week for an average of 15 minutes and a dozen pages visited. That's internet gold for advertising. PTers are making this family wealthy.

I thought it was an interesting interview. I had an account on there for the game way back when it was new.

Pretty much like the tabloids of the jam scene (along with live for live music except PT is worse. Maybe like a less valuable reddit of the jam scene. ). I've gotten some last minute hotel reservations really close to spac and MPp a couple times on PT but it's pretty much just fans in their basements bragging stats or some bs. There is potential laugh material in there though for jam related gifs memes etc but we have terry on staff for that here.

I don't think theres any need to dwell too much on how our communities differ. I think it's enough clear to any of us.

Regardless of that and for better or for worse, PT has become a signifcant sector in the online Phish universe. I learned a few things.

I learned long ago it wasn't my avenue for discussion but I still use it to lurk and check rumors/dates. It totally has it's place in the community imo and if you are easily offended, just may not be the place for you.
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.

The set list game is why I started a pt account. And I've posted about my shirts on there a few times.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

Can't lie - I'm a lurker over there. I mainly follow the ATX and Jazzfest threads - then I like to get into with the idiots when I get bored sometimes - especially when this board gets slow.

To give you an idea - in half the time, I have twice the posts here as there:
