July 20, 2009 I thought my love affair with Phish ended on Friday, but I was wrong. The romance lasted long into the weekend. Just about everyone I ran into over the last few days asked for my closing remarks on the topic — in the hope, perhaps, that I might have some "off the record" comment. (I don't.)
July 17, 2009 It would be both unfair and untrue to say that I'll ever be able to fully divorce Phish's music from their fans and from their community. And, frankly, I wouldn't want to.

July 13, 2009 Well, it's started; I'm only listening to Phish. From now on--whether in my car or at home--it's all Phish, all the time. (Okay, only for the next five days). You know what made the transition easier?
