After the revealing hint, featuring the cover of Phish&#39;s &quot;Two Soundchecks&quot; release with a Jack-o-lantern Photoshopped over some dude&#39;s dome, along with some close-but-not-quite guesses from others, he correctly identified the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHTALjf89Uw#t=4m">10/31/94 Soundcheck (&quot;Star Wars&quot;) Jam</a> and the <a href="http://phish.in/2009-10-29/jam?t=7m">10/29/09 Soundcheck Jam</a> (turn this one up &ndash; the levels are horked because it was recorded using a toaster, but the jam is fantastic).

This week&#39;s theme was one of remuneration, and by identifying the <a href="http://phish.in/1994-04-29/fee?t=5m20s">4/29/94 Fee</a> and the <a href="http://phish.in/2003-02-14/fee?t=10m">2/14/03 Fee</a>, <a href="http://phish.net/user/FunkyCFunkyDo">@FunkyCFunkyDo</a> collects the standard weekly emolument: a free download code from <a href="http://LivePhish.com">LivePhish.com</a>.</p> <p><small><strong>A rambling note about icons: </strong>You see those two icons below this note? The first icon says &quot;LivePhish&quot; on it and links to <a href="http://LivePhish.com">LivePhish.com</a> &ndash; click it and redeem your codes or buy stuff! Did you know that for more than a year after <a href="http://LivePhish.com">LivePhish.com</a> came into existence, the band gave <em>100% </em>of <a href="http://LivePhish.com">LivePhish.com</a> profits to the <a href="http://mbird.org">Mockingbird Foundation</a>, and that they continue to give a significant slice of every purchase to the foundation to this day? Did you know that they&#39;ve sent me all the free download codes so I can give them away to you each week for the MJM?? They&#39;re amazing like that, so the next time you&#39;re <em>aching </em>to hear a show and thinking about heading to the <a href="http://forum.phish.net">forum</a> to look for a ground score, consider buying directly from their site instead. If you&#39;re already stocked up on free codes, think about donating to the <a href="http://mbird.org">Mockingbird Foundation</a>! It&#39;ll make you feel good, it&#39;ll make me feel good, and it&#39;ll make kids feel good about music, so they can grow up to make good music, which will make us all feel good. The second icon says &quot;Mystery Jam Monday Results&quot; on it, and links to the Mystery Jam Monday Results, which are stored in a beautifully-built, color-coded, pre-programmed spreadsheet tracking the results of every MJM. It&#39;s updated a couple times a week &ndash; first with the MJM number, the number of clips (represented by the number of rows for that week&#39;s puzzle), and the date of the MJM; then with the link to the MJM, and sometimes even with the band playing in the clips; and finally, when the correct answer is dropped, I put the winner in the spreadsheet before I update the blog. You want to know how many wins different users have? Check the spreadhseet. You want to re-listen to MJM69? Check the spreadhseet. You want to know which clips have been used previously, even though you know that double-dipping is allowed (though it&#39;s a good bet the clips chosen each week have never been used)?

It is therefore a deeply personal piece for him, a song that he hopes will make us all reflect on our own lives and thereby allow it to serve as a universal connection between each of us. At this point in our lives, each of us has likely experienced the loss of a loved one whether it be through their death or simply the demise of the relationship. We all miss someone or something.

Considering the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Thin_White_Duke">Thin White Duke</a>&rsquo;s known openness to both male and female lovers, most listeners will likely lean towards the sexual interpretation. However, with the reference to Henry (AKA Hank or heroin) getting his lean on, the high-rev pace of the song, and Bowie&rsquo;s own admission that he was more into fast drugs; the lyrics can just as easily be ascribed to the rush of a good stimulant kicking into overdrive. &nbsp;Either way, Ziggy has no time for Henry because he is ready for more &ldquo;Wham Bam, Thank you Ma&rsquo;am!&rdquo; with his special lady friend....</p> Thu, 09 Mar 2017 10:40:57 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@Doctor_Smarty) Song "Inspire MORE with ART" Art & Coloring Contest http://phish.net/news/1487025237 http://phish.net/news/1487025237 <p>Whether you are touched through music, visual art, dance or another medium, ART has the power to inspire you to BE MORE.
