Welcome to the 300th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second and second-easiest of November. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of both mystery clips, which are connected by a theme. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday. Good luck!
Note: I dropped the ball on getting a big event together for #300, but I'll make it up to folks soon, and announce it in advance so folks are ready. Thanks, as always, for playing – I wouldn't keep this up each week if it weren't for folks' enthusiasm. – pete
Answer: And then there were fifteen! For the third time in the past six MJMs, and the seventh time in the past 19 months, @mickeyjoe86 beat everyone to the punch, becoming the latest MJMer to join the Emeritus ranks! In his seven victories, he found a total of 20 clips from late '94 through the Baker's Dozen, hitting all eras and most years in between. It is with great pleasure that I force him into the Phish-themed retirement home, where all audio is lossless SBD, all the roses (and dr006z) are free, and the other 14 Emeriti await his arrival, steeped in their own excrement – welcome @mickeyjoe86! Special thanks to fellow Emeritus @WayIFeel for his help on this week's clips, and we'll see you next week for MJM301...
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.
