@ucpete said:Heh, the subtler part of the hint that I didn't mention, and the reason I chose peyote cactus, is that Mike's Song was called "Microdot" for a while – you can hear Trey call it "Microdot" before / after mid-80s renditions. While in the 70s there were claims that the purple microdots going around were pressed mescaline, they were actually likely just highly concentrated LSD. (Considering that the microdots weighed about 10 mg, while in order to get a mescaline high, one needs to typically consume upwards of 400 mg).@TwiceBitten:so this theme works on two levels!? because i was associating the peyote cactus hint with hallucinating. hence, the post-jazz odyssey comment.
Got it! I was getting there going through early *Mike's* Songs, but you beat me!
My question is, what does peyote *cactus* have to do with this jam/show?
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.
