TAKE THE BAIT - INTERLUDE

[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::

axillapt5000 I'm loving this series too, many thanks. I'd be really interested in an exploration of your top 5 versions of certain songs, e.g. my favorite jam vehicles Gin and Ghost ...

I can jerk it to this twist by myself, thank you very much.

n00b100 I'd like to note that I didn't put in for any tickets since I'm but a poor country lawyer just hoping for a West Coast fall tour (hope you got the shows you wanted, anyone!), so I spent my bye week scribbling The Hottest of Takes in my special three-ring binder and meditating on the Japan 2000 tour while in the lotus position.

He relentlessly FaceTimed me while doing this. Relentlessly. n00b's flexibility expands far beyond his knowledge and application of the English language. I was impressed.

It's like my old grandpappy used to say:
"If ya ain't flyin', ya ain't tryin'"
