MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 283

Welcome to the 283rd edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the third of five in July. Happy tour! The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three mystery clips. The three clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the correct answer – but it should help you get there. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, after which each person gets one more guess before the correct answer is revealed on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Hint:

Answer: For the second time in three weeks, newcomer @ThirdSound has taken down the MJM post-hint, taking three codes home in the process. Once again, he quickly deciphered the (admittedly straightforward) hint, which contained a photo of a traffic light with an illuminated yellow right turn arrow (as mentioned in the comments, I actually reflected a left turn arrow photo... because I'm ridiculous). The idea was that a yellow light is the last thing you see before you have to stop (which is when one becomes a "Slave to the Traffic Light"), and the arrow represents a 'segue' (->): all three clips segue fully into -> "Slave": 8/21/15 NMINML (-> Slave), 7/4/99 Ghost (-> Slave), and 8/9/11 CDT (-> Slave). Unless there is too much other blog activity, we'll be back Monday for MJM284.

that second clip is in my collection of shows somewhere that i've listened to many times and it's driving me batty! I've always thought it is a tease of some sort but couldn't identify what it's from...

ThirdSound Hopefully I did it again. Here I go...

8/21/15 no men in no man's land
7/4/99 ghost
8/9/11 chalk dust torture

These jams all fully segue into Slave to the Traffic Light, cause it's a picture of one

I believe you are correct. Loved that hint and was on the trail. Way to go.

I believe you are correct. Loved that hint and was on the trail. Way to go.
1) relisten to Magnaball
2) realize that NMINML outro pre -> Slave makes fantastic MJM fodder
3) think of themes around it – remember that 7/4/99 Ghost has dope -> Slave too
4) think of hints – what about a yellow light because it's what you see right before you're a Slave to the Traffic Light?
5) remember there are arrows on traffic lights too – struggle to find high res picture of yellow *right* turn arrow
6) download picture of yellow *left* turn arrow; reflect it the other way
7) feel really clever
8) realize this hint is way too god damn easy; add a third clip because I'm a sadist
9) ????????
10) profit (negative one download code)

Lol. I didn't think about the fact that right yellow-light arrows don't exist. To me it looked like the full segue symbol on setlists. Segue in a traffic light, I thought, then boom

I wondered how you got a yellow right hand arrow! And actually wondered if you were sick enough to reverse an image. Now we know the lengths to which you'll go...

This is funny in a good way.

ucpete Haha right yellow arrows do exist, they're just not common, and they're even less commonly photographed given how little time turn arrows spend being yellow vs. the other two colors. I found one decent picture of one in Washington state, but it was too low resolution, so I flipped this one :)
