Dumb, this is why I hate the fucking scene now. As someone who has been regulalry seeing shows since 93 and up until 2010, I am a crusty, jaded old fuck. The Phish #newmoney makes me want to kick a baby. They suddenly know everything because they've read the Companion and listened to every show. Fuck you trust fund posers, eat a bag of dicks. Also the running lists or Dead/ Phish mashup titles makes my blood boil. It's not the Grateful Dead nor is it the Treyful Dead. Its a nostalgia act. "We owe it to the songs" my ass, it's a cash grab.

That being said, I still plan on going. Can we play toss-a-wook? Please?

Damn, Justin, now I feel reeeeeaaaalllllllllllly old I stopped seeing shows in '93 (first show '71), and started up seeing Phish in '94. To me the Dead died when Jerry died. Some PAF through the years, but more into seeing live Phish, Hot Tuna, Radiators (RIP), and now classical, and metal too haha.

Needless to say super stoked, but I am not going if I can't land all 3 days in the pit, sent my mail order for only that. Undecorated. Never decorated em back in the day either. :)

I am betting on a stream and would rather sit and listen on my home system than sit in a stadium in the stands far away.

Hope everyone in this thread lands, and you and I can bend elbows again, and all the folks here can all share some beer together as our real selves. Peace and love

Yes. I did not decorate...maybe the decorated ones rose to the top. I'll be at the computer trying to get tickets regardless when they go on sale.

Cheese at Red Rocks me might be a consolation if I strike out completely.

I feel old as hell. If starting in 93 makes you a crusty old jaded fuck, I must be ancient, and my parents prehistoric.
