MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 312

Welcome to the 312th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second-easiest of February. 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 songs and date of these two mystery clips, which are connected by a theme that needn't be part of the correct answer. 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 the hint, each person gets one more guess before the contest ends Wednesday, and the winner announced shortly thereafter. Good luck!

Answer: We've hit #17 in '18! With this week's win, @12_29_97_4eva can finally stop worrying about having skipped 12/30/97, knowing he has reached the pinnacle of Phish fandom by the longer, more circuitious, more rewarding path: by becoming the 17th MJM Emeritus! This week's MJM was one of those "easy if you're paying attention" contests: not only did we get our sixth and seventh consecutive '99 clips, but I said the winner would have to identify the correct "songs and date" (plural and singular, respectively). A careful reader would assume that either I committed a typographical error, or that both songs came from the same show; a longtime careful reader would know that it's simply unrealistic for me to leave a typographical error in an MJM post. Alas, @12_29_97_4eva quickly identified the 7/26/99 "Wolfman's Brother" and the 7/26/99 "Jam."

@12_29_97_4eva: Kevin has activated your login to The Vault; Paul is adding the lacquer to your personalized MiniDoc©; Mike said he asked his assistant to ship you four of his favorite Sephora LipStyx; @FunkyCFunkyDo is in your closet, burning the rest of your pants; @RabeldyNugs is yelling at you to get off his lawn; and The Boys just sent a really funny (but highly NSFW) GIF of Fishman with the caption "time for the meatspin" to the the iMessage text thread. I notice you haven't thumbs-up'd or "haha"'d it yet – Fish gets really bummed when we don't (oh, and he hates "lol" so only write it in uppercase and only if you are actually laughing out loud – sometimes he FaceTimes you to double check), so I hope for all our sakes you don't have an Android phone... All seriousness aside, welcome to the club! (Took you long enough...). I'd also like to take this moment to announce the unveiling of the MJM Hall of Fame – see the MJM Results spreadsheet below, in the second tab. The MJM HoF currently comprises 17 MJM Emeritus winners, and three MJM hosts – with an overlap of two between those two groups. If you're an Emeritus and I have missed or misquoted any of your remarkable feats, please let me know and I will rectify the situation immediately. MJM313 on Monday.

The emeritus hazing ceremony is not quite the Oh Kee Pa Ceremony or the Sun Dance Ceremony, but some say it's kinda like walking through a Maze of Dog Logs while searching for a Harry Hood figurine with the lights turned off.

I'm always curious, what would your hint have been here?

wforwumbo Welcome @12_29_97_4eva to the emeritus club! But you do know 12/30/97 is the better show, right? ;-)

It would have alluded to the fact that the MJM intro had everything you need to know about this week's theme:

"To win, be the first person to identify the songs and date of these two mystery clips"

Nice one! I usually read the intro pretty carefully, but I didn't notice that. Thanks for doing these. It's always fun, sometimes frustrating, and I usually end up checking out some stuff I haven't heard, at least recently.

Thank you! The bolded part of your comment are exactly my hope each week.

I did just think of another good hint:

^ That's the 7/26 1999 :)

FunkyCFunkyDo As @ucpete accurately observed, @12_29_97_4eva can now finally live his life pants-free.
