Two Phish bits this evening.
First, Phish Thoughts unveils a rather sweet-looking audio archive.
Second, the other day, I got into a discussion about Santa Claus with FBdN son #1. I kept it real agnostic. ‘Legend has it…some people say…’ – that kind of thing.
His take: yes, there is indeed a Santa Claus.
So, in that spirit, I’ve scanned my vast Phish holdings and drawn up a wish-list of tunes that I hope will be played on December 5 down in Charlottesville. Let’s see if I get lucky.
- Backwards Down the Number Line
- Brian and Robert
- Down With Disease
- Fast Enough For You
- The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday
- Punch You In The Eye
- Slave To The Traffic Light
- Time Turns Elastic

That was my triple play this evening. While downloading Beardfish’s new one, “Destined Solitaire,” from the iTunes store, I took the opportunity to upload my CD of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” into my iTunes library.
As all that was going on, I cranked up Phish’s “46 Days,” recorded live at Merriweather on 8/15 and conveniently embedded at Mr. Miner’s Phish Thoughts.
So that’s something old, something new, something borrowed, and even, as the picture shows, something blue.

Poking around the intertrons today, I came across this:
The Internet is really amazing.

With not a whole lot in the blogging hopper this evening, I’ll turn to the vast FBdN archives for a tune I recorded six years ago: Underwater Moon.
Underwater Moon (8.4.03)
I did this one in Pro Tools LE, which I haven’t used much at all in the last few years. One thing I liked about the software was the reverb effect. I can’t remember the details here, but I think you could set reverb to “infinite” or something. That made for some sonic weirdness, which shows up a bit in the track.
UPDATE: I tweeted this blog post and got the funniest response nearly immediately: “@fretbuzzdotnet That’s no moon. It’s a space station.” A perfect reply, when you listen to this spaced-out track. But then I checked out who sent the response. The Internet is really amazing.

What an amazing idea. This is a band that only exists on line. There are records, but they’re not for sale. No concerts, no labels, no songs. Just three crazy Italians with a serious jones for music. I LOVE this idea. They jam together, come up with a few things that might be worthwhile and then – *presto* – the next album is released. I’m only just listening to this stuff for the first time now, but it seems pretty cool. They seem to have a bit of a following, and they recommend other bands who are doing the same thing. Makes ya think…
