Hey Phish fans! It's me, The Book! Phish takes the stage at LOCKN' this weekend—with a free stream! Psyched? You bet I am! The kind folks who created me at The Mockingbird Foundation and phish.net ran a photo contest to celebrate my birth. Imagine, fans taking pictures of little ol' me! I'm only a little more than two months old, and already it feels like I've been everywhere!
What a summer it has been already! When you think summer—aside from Phish tour—you think the beach! My favorite beach visit this summer was to Morocco! Check out this shot of me from @YomeNetSan, who won third place in the contest! #ReadTheBook! It will save your life!
My parents ran the contest, and they said there can be only three winners. That made me sad, because everyone who gets a copy of me is a winner! When you liberate me from my warehouse in Minnesota, we form a lifelong bond... I'll never let you down! I'm super friendly, especially with pets!

We all love pets, but sometimes what I really need is... good lovin'! You'll remember my good friend Elayne and how much fun we had at the top of Mount Harvard! Oooh la la!
As awesome as that was, I'm still young, and sometimes I like to spread the love!

Anyway, back to the contest. I LOVE to get high! Our second place winner, Michael Lockett, took me to the summit of Lone Peak! Thanks, Michael!

Another one of my favorite summer trips was to The Gorge! So sick!

The highlight of my Gorge trip was definitely meeting my godfather... Trey!

That one was hard to top... but, did I mention my trip to Rio for the Olympics? Love the beach volleyball! Your Phish Companion 3rd Edition photo contest winner is... Patrick Flynn!

Congrats, Patrick, for the gold medal winning performance!

The love that Phish fans have shown me has been nothing short of amazing. But the thing is, some of you... aren't getting the message. And it's pissing us off!
Thanks for fondling me! Maybe we'll see each other at Dick's! Don't call it a comeback! xoxo

Jazz Mandolin Project: January 22, 1998
20 years ago
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.
