The Funniest Things Overheard At Phish’s Four-Night Run In Las Vegas

first_imgIt’s become tradition for the Live For Live Music family to catalog the hysterical things we overhear at large-scale jam scene events. Some moments live on through various fan groups, providing additional content and extended laughs galore. Though nothing can live up to the actual memories of the communities floating through places like Soldier Field during Fare Thee Well, or Madison Square Garden during New Years Eve, or any of the various music festivals that occupy the lives of our strange-folk jam scene, it’s the after-read that makes this work week just a little more enjoyable.Our most recent laughs have come straight out of Las Vegas, when Phish took over the MGM Grand Garden Arena for four nights to celebrate Halloween. With over 17,000 gambling phans in attendance, there was plenty of action to hear from. So, here’s what made us laugh the hardest!“The MGM makes me feel like Hunter S. Thompson had it easy in fear and loathing in Las Vegas…”“I could probably nail Mike from here with this glow stick… but I won’t. He’s wooorking.”“I have double Page nipples” – after receiving random Phish buttons.“I don’t want to walk through that way, it’s a field of spunions over there.”“WHO WANTS TO FRIEND ME ON FACEBOOK?!?”Dude in a skirt: “You guys look pretty great, wanna take me home?”“I’m invisible!” “Well I’m a bagel!!”“This is great pot. It feels like when you’re still feeling the waves after being on a boat, but in a good way….” “So you could say it’s ‘Big Boat’ weed?!?”“No ducks, no deal.”“I mean it’s a baby, I haven’t done anything with it but he’s cool.”“I need a pen that writes, not one you smoke out of!”“I couldn’t handle this place on acid!”“This is a Phish show not a Dead show – so no tie dye!”“We’ve got some powerful pills here, who wants em?!” Hands out Smarties.“I only hope that Page labels his haunted house noises with pictures or icons instead of words. That’s what I would do.”“This band is going to make me cry tonight.”Said during the show: “You know what would make this even better… bacon.”“You know, this band really needs more tambourines…” “I know! I wish these glow sticks were tambourines.”Hippies run to the people in front of us wearing blinking lights & stop: “Sorry about cutting in front of you, but those lights were so inviting!”Sign on Amish costume, “what happens on rumshpringa stays on rumshpringa.”“Baa baa black sheep have you any shirt?”“Did someone lose a sock? It just fell in front of me…”“Star Jam?” “Star VOCAL Jam!!”“Your cab driver was a pimp?!” “Well yea but he was more of a renaissance man really.”During set three on Halloween: “Didn’t Mike have sleeves at one point during this concert?”During Twist drum solo: “IT’S PHISH IN SPAAAACE!”After Monday’s show: “DO NOT under-do it tonight, doctor’s orders.”Groom to bride before wedding, dressed as Hall and Oates: “Babe, you have the marriage certificate right? Also, let me fix your mustache, it’s crooked.”“How am I going to get these drugs in?” “You could supposit them…” “Did you just invent a new verb?”In the bathroom: “How do I hang up my bag of wine?”“I sold my extra to a wook but realized afterwards it was my ticket, so now I’m the wook looking for an extra. WHO’S GOT MY EXTRA!?!?”“I heard John Mayer is here. Did you guys catch when Mayer’s rhythm guitarist played with Phish in Nashville?”“I dropped five grand on a shitty handjob last night.”“I’m all itchy from that woman’s glitter last night.”“Me and my buddy were banging this chick last night in the room and she reached over and started eating all the Altoids. They were all dosed and…” elevator door closes.After someone got kicked out: “That’s what happens when Phish brings back the Gumbo jams.”Also after someone got kicked out: “I couldn’t get any more psychedelic right now.”“Hey guys, I’m going to see this really awesome band on Halloween. They’re called Twiddle. If anyone knows any pre game parties we could hit, let me know!” – an actual Facebook message [face palm!]“Guys, I’m pretty sure I just saw John Mayer riding a the rail in a unicorn onesie… my life is complete!”At TopGolf: “I’m nailing golf balls at a driving range with Electric Beethoven playing behind me after a Phish show. They should call me Tiger Wooks!”last_img read more

A Californian-bungalow style home fits perfectly in Cairns

first_imgThe home has a resort-style pool area.“The home wraps around the entertainment area so it is all in the one space.“The first thing we liked about the house is that it was in a good location — Clifton Beach is so nice. When we saw the house, the style of the house, the brickwork, was different and we knew what we could do with it. “We brought it into today’s style but we didn’t want it to look like it was renovated. “In every little corner inside and out, we have tried to put in some kind of feature. Whether it is the front or back corner of the house, it’s designed to draw you to every part of the block.“Every part of the house gets used. Out the front there is a big balcony, there is a big undercover area, and out the back is the entertaining area, with a fire pit, showers and the lawn area.”More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days ago 40 Satellite St, Clifton Beach“This breathtaking home is virtually brand new and exudes a sleek yet soothing vibe.“Absolutely nothing left to do but move in and enjoy, with only a short stroll to either the quiet Clifton Beach or the hustle and bustle of Palm Cove.”A workshop or storage area in the backyard has also been cleverly designed to blend in with landscaping. There’s also an outdoor shower.The home was named best backyard in Queensland as part of the Landscape Queensland awards thanks to Mr Saunders’, a landscaper himself, use of recycled items. Selling agent Michelle Champion of Champions in Real Estate said the first impressions of the home were “truly charming”. “The home’s exterior incorporates an array of recycled materials, weathered steel, stone gathered from the original landscape, hand crafted bamboo screening and recycled paved paths,” she said.“The kitchen is exceptional with black Caesarstone benchtops, a black resin double sink and a statement Ilve 900mm wide oven/cooktop. 40 Satellite St, Clifton BeachONE of the first things you notice about 40 Satellite St, Clifton Beach is how every part of the house has a purpose.Owners Will and Tracey Saunders were drawn to the home’s unusual brickwork and Californian bungalow feel when they bought the house seven years ago.The pair spent the ensuing years putting their touch on the place and making the home a unique space to be enjoyed daily.“It is hard to say which part of the home has been the most used because the whole thing works so well. The way the house is in a U shape means we use the whole area. Everything is central,” Mr Saunders said. 40 Satellite St, Clifton Beach“The astutely configured floorplan places the deluxe main bedroom in its own private zone at the front of the home with stunning windows, a built-in robe and beautiful ensuite. “This home is not only about design and lifestyle, it is also extremely practical with under cover parking for three vehicles with extra room for trailers, extra storage is available down the side of the home with the added bonus of side access and a storage shed/workshop blends beautifully into the landscaped gardens.last_img read more

Ighalo wins Man of The Match award against LASK

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Breaking: Ighalo blocked Osimhen’s Man U move — Brother Man U crash out of Europa League Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo was voted Man of the Match after opening the scoring in the 5-0 victory over LASK and leading the line with authority. The Nigerian, who is on loan from Shanghai Greeland Shenhua, also provided the assist for the second goal, finished by Daniel James, and was unlucky not to add to his personal tally when showing great strength before rolling his effort against a post. Ighalo’s fourth goal since arriving on deadline day in January was a thing of absolute beauty. He took three touches to juggle a pass by Bruno Fernandes on the edge of the area in order to work his way into a shooting position. With tremendous venom, the centre-forward hammered his drive in off the underside of the bar for a strike that deserved more attention than it received in a virtually empty stadium due to the tie being played behind closed doors. Despite the healthy competition for the award, the hit-man gained half of the votes cast to finish clear of Fernandes in second spot and third-placed Fred. It is the second time he has scooped the accolade, after also starring in the Emirates FA Cup triumph at Derby County. Ighalo was the undisputed main man on Thursday evening in Linz.Tags: Bruno FernandesDaniel JamesLASKOdion IghaloShanghai Shenhualast_img read more
