[Take the Bait is spirited deliberation centered around the hyperbole of Phish’s music and fandom, passionately exuded via the written words of phish.net contributors @FunkyCFunkyDo and @n00b100. Opinions expressed herein do not necessarily reflect those of phish.net, The Mockingbird Foundation, or any fan… but we're pretty sure we’re right. Probably.]
Funky: n00b and I are taking a bye week to prepare for the Phish 2019 Summer Tour Onsale today (Jan 25) and Saturday (Jan 26). May Icculus have mercy on all our souls.
We sincerely appreciate your support and feedback on the series so far, and we plan to unleash more lexicon-building hot takes and vet-enraging fluff in the weeks and months to come. We have a delightful time geeking out on the aspects of Phish hyperbole close to our own hearts, and, hopefully, we can geek out with what's close to yours. If there are any topics that you would like us to cover, please let us know in the comments section. Like Phish, we are the all-request ban... er, writers. You ask, we deliver!
See you next Friday for the second part of our three-part Japan series. And good luck with the onsale! ::grumbles about verified tickets::
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 just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
