Am I the only one that really thinks that the Harpua is extra fucking lame with a side of lame sauce?

First of all...there is no true Jimmy/Poster Nutbag/Harpua story...

Second of all...Trey keeps fucking up during the second half of the tune.

Or...am I being a jealous hater? 

Also, I kind of thought that the Katy Perry cover wasn't as funny as I was hoping...it was more like..."HaHa get it...I'm playing the Katy Perry song!"

ps-Anything But Me is a rad tune for exactly the reason that RedRum posted.

no

just listened to harpua for the first time....

cool that they played it, but

i'll admit, Anything But Me is not my favorite tune to see played live.
and i pretty much used to hate it too, until one day i read the lyrics (with out the music playing)

Quote
I am just a satellite, high above the atmosphere
Bouncing every thing you say to someone who was meant to
hear
Sometimes on a rainy day, I lie in bed and dream of you
So blame it on the satellite, when your message can't get
through

I am just a tiny wave, a minor ripple out at sea
Moving slowly towards the shore, burdened with uncertainty
I'm gaining power, losing speed, wondering as I near your
door
Will you hold it open for the tidal wave approaching shore?

You've become an island in the hazy world surrounding me
Offering a vast reward each time I safely cross the sea
All too often I become lost in the fog and haze
Clinging still, against my will, to promises of clearer days

I am just a raindrop that accelerates without control
Losing bits and pieces in descent 'til I'm no longer whole
I am just another shooting star above that you might see
Until I have your full attention I'll be anything but me

now i at least appreciate (& tolerate) it.

ps-Anything But Me is a rad tune for exactly the reason that RedRum posted.

so, you guys are ok with trey being a satellite, a tiny wave, and a raindrop,
but when he's a submarine, look the fuck out!

He explains how he is like a satellite.

It's a metaphor.

He never explains how he is a submarine or what that has to do with anything.

It is confusing.

Got it?

As far as Anything But Me goes... I think its a great slower tune... Felt along side of this tune many times in my life...

Control for smilers can't be bought...

"Your answer is silly. What'd do you want the song to do? End world hunger?
It's a fucking Phish song, some of them are very complex compositions, some are not.

This one with its complex vocal arrangement falls right in between.
But that and a hook aren't enough so I'll let Trey know his songs have to start giving out handys." RJ

Me too!
And if you had told me that going in, I would have laughed at ya.
Just got up off the couch to drop a deuce while the band belts out Fuckerpants.

I'm kinda shocked that the Rock & Roll from this show seems to be getting no love at all.   :?
"There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese."          -Bobby Finstock
