TREY: Icculus. The great prophet. Does everybody know who Icculus is? [crowd yells] No? Hold on, we’ll tell you who Icculus is.
Well you see a long time ago, thousands of years ago, there lived a great man. He was the one who amassed all the writings of the great thinkers for the entire history of the world. He put them together into one volume, and it became the Helping Friendly Book. It was such a great book that the Lizards based their lifestyle on it for thousands of years until it was stolen by Wilson, who used the knowledge inherent in the book for the acquisition of power. Of course, Wilson was an asshole. But, the legend still remains about the writer of the Helping Friendly Book because that man was 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.
