My good friend and Mockingbird Foundation board member Elayne sherpa’d me up here in her backpack, and I can’t think of a better place to shout the news about phish.net’s exciting new contest...
Details below, but first, here’s Elayne and me making out high atop Mount Harvard. Meow.
And here’s a lovely view of heaven, oxygen-starved as it may be.
Inspired? Good. Because now it’s your turn!
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to take a photo of me, The Phish Companion, in a setting and pose of your choice. Post it on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, with the hashtag #ReadTheBook, by Friday, August 19th. You'll want to make sure your post is set to "public" so that the whole world (including the judges from phish.net) can see me in all my glory!
I love to go to famous places. I love to be seen with important people. Dress me up, take me out, get me buck naked, feed me grapes — it’s all fair game! All you need is a smart phone, your imagination, and a copy of me, The Phish Companion.
Don't have one yet? No sweat! There's plenty of time to enter the contest and you can get one here right this very second.
On Friday, August 26th, I’ll announce three winners, whose pics will be published in this space along with some honorable mentions.
Those three winners will be awarded with their choice of these three phenomenal Phish posters:
Isadora Bullock’s “Out of Control” is a hand-crafted linoleum cut print in a signed and numbered edition of 150. Introduced at the recent PhanArt show in Chicago, this is the first print from Isadora's new press, and her first print for The Mockingbird Foundation.
And just in time for the election season, artist and printmaker Brian Bojo’s “How About a Goldfish?” answers its own question with a resounding NOPE! This three-color screenprint is a signed and numbered edition of 150, and sold out upon its release in April.
Important fine print alert: By submitting your photos to phish.net in accordance with this contest, you are granting phish.net and The Mockingbird Foundation rights to its unlimited use, including but not limited to use in promotional and marketing materials.
What are you waiting for, shutterbug? Good luck!
If you liked this blog post, one way you could "like" it is to make a donation to The Mockingbird Foundation, the sponsor of Phish.net. Support music education for children, and you just might change the world.

Jazz Mandolin Project: January 22, 1998

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
