Last week, we unveiled J-Card Mode on  The response was overwhelmingly positive, especially given that it was a "throwaway" feature - meant more for entertainment than utility.  It didn't add anything new to the experience, it was solely intended for fun.  We didn't expect to receive the amount of feedback we did, and we certainly didn't anticipate the number of requests for a true "J-Card" view of setlists.  

In retrospect, it only made sense for us to follow through on the concept.  We should have anticipated the demand for the throwback tape inserts.  Alas, a few days later, we're delivering it.  Today I'm releasing "J-Card Setlists."  Yes, the name is similar to J-Card Mode and perhaps even a bit confusing.  The challenge here is that some will want shorter song titles but not the altered setlist view, so we're making them optional.  Starting right now, you'll see a new option on the setlist page called "Show J-Card Setlists."   When you click this link, individual setlists will now display as follows: 

J-Card View
J-Card View

This feature is new and still in unofficial testing.  It does some weird things when you're viewing incomplete sets and only approximates an actual j-card so much.  But we hope you find it as entertaining as we do, if only for the novelty.  

Note: This feature currently is disabled in Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 and below.  The styling requires features that do not work.  

If you liked this blog post, one way you could "like" it is to make a donation to The Mockingbird Foundation, the sponsor of Support music education for children, and you just might change the world.

gankmore When copying and pasting from the setlist page now you get both sets on top of each other

Set 1: My Soul, Tube > Runaway Jim > Foam, GuelahGuelah Papyrus > DividedThe Divided Sky, Round Room > Walk Away > JibbooGotta Jibboo > Reba[1], WotCWalls of the Cave

Set 2: C&PCrosseyed and Painless > Twist[2] > Simple, Sneakin' SallySneakin' Sally through the Alley > MakisupaMakisupa Policeman[3] -> BowieDavid Bowie

Encore: Fee[4], Frankenstein

Is that by design?

roybelly I love the font.....that perfect all-capital-letters look that would please even the most OCD taper....none of the letters touching the lines....very tight.

Dressed_In_Gray Wow, it just gets better and better. The font and the card design are great. Keep up the great work you Phish.netters!!!

It looks especially cool on long sets like 2/20/93 :)
