Phish ~ Telluride, CO 2010

Finally – getting a chance to sit down and post about this new adventure. Seeing Phish always requires a day or two for me to digest exactly what in the hell just happened.

The show was part of the Summer Free Concert series; huge thank yous for the promoters for finally getting a band other than the Wailers.

Hispania Racing, formerly Campos Meta, had struggled with financial difficulties and looked as if they would be a no show.

The Whacky Crap You Can Find on the Internets

Due to some unfortunate circumstances, I have been finding myself with an over abundant amount of down time on my hands. This down time, coupled with quite a speedy DSL connection has led me to surf the Internets more than usual. My normal web use generally consists of the mundane; e-mail, news, a forum post or two, Twitter and the… Read more →
