Sheesh, I just looked at my last post and forgot to mention how great the bands were. Each and every band seemed to step it up a notch or something. I don't know if it was my own mood, their own mood, them wanting to impress everyone else or what, but each and every band seemed to step take it right to that point of what us old-school Phish fans used to call "HOSE." I think you know what I mean: there were many many times when I (and it seemed everyone else around me) simply couldn't dance any harder.
Some of my favorite moments:
Particle playing with Karl Denson (it really worked!) and basically all of late-night Particle.
KDTU playing 2001 with DJ Z-Trip
Umphreys late-night playing Triple-Wide with Steve Molitz (Particle) on keys with Joel (Thank you guys for finally making that song the epic journy it was destined to be!) ...Love the Roses at dawn too
Disco Biscuits: Didgital Buddha->Run like Hell->Digital Buddha. Magellan->I-man, Above the Waves (of course)->Morph, Helicopters, Crickets->Run like hell ....Hell, all of Biscuits as they're my favorite band on the boat and truely came through!
And of course, I think my favorite moment of the whole ship and the one that is sticking to my brain this whole time as the epitomy of Jamcruise: watching the Magellan reprise right at Dawn:
"One with the raging wind,
Alive on the highest tides,
My ship at sail can climb a mountain,
Ride it to the sky."
I love you all, thank you so much.
