I personally like that Phish fans have different opinions. Sometimes "groupthink" takes over after too long. Some of us would much rather see a 20-minute "Disease" than the "Antelope/Jim/Makisupa" antics, while others want to see a show filled with perfectly played short-and-concise songs. I love reading different takes on the same show as it helps me appreciate some aspects that might not have hit me upon attending/watching/listening.

Regardless, thanks for sharing your viewpoint.

Thank you for pointing this out! I mean, how fuckin BORING would it be if we all agreed with each other about everything all the time?!

The trouble starts when people just can't let go of their precious little snowflakey opinions, forgetting that they are only just that -- OPINIONS -- and start getting argumentative and just plain mean about why everyone else is "wrong." That's when I just stop reading and move along.

Back to your point about the various things we may or may not have picked up on while watching/listening live -- I love reading/hearing about stuff like that! I really appreciate the little things, fine details, especially with Phish. I tend to try listening VERY closely (some parts more than others, of course) so it's always fun to read a review or comment and be like, "Oh! I must have missed that! I'll have to check it out when I listen back," etc.

Playful discussions are great; arguments and selfish nit-picking are not. We're all in this bathtub together, folks! 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.
