TREY: Well, it’s time to go back to the magical land. That’s right, Gamehendge. Since a lot of you already know most of this story, I will skip the begining and we’ll move to the middle.
At this point in our story, Colonel Forbin is walking towards the mountain. He’s gonna climb the mountain and he’s gonna try to find Icculus, the great prophet. Does everybody know who Icculus is? No? Hold on. We’ll tell you who Icculus is. [Opening chords of Icculus are played.]
Well, you see, a long time ago, thousands of years ago, there lived a great man. And he was the one who amassed all the writings of the great thinkers for the entire history of the world. And he put them together into one volume and it became The Helping Friendly Book. And 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.
[Band performs Icculus. At the conclusion, Trey returns to “Fly Famous Mockingbird”]
On with the story. So anyway… Here we are at the bottom of the mountain ladies and gentlemen. The Colonel was looking up, and he stood in the dust, the climb ahead of him.
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.
