TREY: We’d like to bring you into this set quietly and nicely by telling you a little story. Because we have you all gathered here today, it’s important that we spread the word, the message. Steve, can you pick up that furry dog? The word, the message, the printed word. Because this is the story of a great man. How about a little backup vocals?
It wasn’t too long ago. It wasn’t long ago that I was introduced to the writings of a great philosopher, a great philosopher from the land of Gamehendge, the land of the Lizards, the land of Wilson. And, this great philosopher wrote a great book. From its pages, we have been drawing our life plan because this book contains all the knowledge inherent in the universe. The book changed our lives, and we hope that you too can someday have your lives changed by the writings of this great man.
Because he is the great! The knowledgeable! The one! The only! The special! The wonderful! He is the great man! Who wrote this book! Because his name is the great! The knowledgeable! The sacred! The sacred author of this book!
And he is, of course, the great Icculus...
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.
