This is a cross-post from type II cast.
A Thanksgiving themed Phish mix tape for your listening pleasure.
Enjoy and have a Happy Turkey Day everyone.
We’ve got a very special episode of TWoL for you! Our guest this week is Caroline McCarthy from CNET. She comes to us to “defend” her comments on the 404 podcast episode where OkCupid reveals what white people like or at least they post on their dating page they like. Turns out what white guys over 30 like is Phish. It could be because many of them missed out on chasing girls in their 20′s because they were too busy chasing Phish around the country. You be the judge!
In a classic Bros vs. Brahs showdown we also discuss the difference in the female presence between a DMB show and a Phish show. Honestly way more females are at DMB shows then a Phish show, I don’t think it’s really an argument there. The point of discussion may be more around why? Leave us a voicemail and let us know your opinion on why such diversity between females at a DMB and females at Phish. 419-NO-WOOKS is the number to call!
Technology has brought the world together and information at your finger tips. People are more active and connected then ever, point in case Facebook and twitter. With the availability and connections you can create so easily, practical uses are exploding. If you’re an iPhone user there are now two Phish apps available, Live Phish and iTour.phish. If you’re an Android user there is only one Phish related app at this time, you can find it here.
Don’t forget there’s still time to sign up for the Atlantic City, NJ Phish tweetup. You don’t have to be on twitter to RSVP, come join us! You can RSVP at this link.
Last but not least we run through some voicemails. This week is a little interesting, we received all different kinds of voicemails. One of which appears to have been someones one phone call from jail. Thanks for providing a lot update even though you were locked up! For more details you’ll have to listen to the podcast. Don’t forget everyone that leaves us a voicemail during this Fall Tour will be eligible to win a Touropoly set from this month’s sponsor Touropoly.com.
Thank you everyone for the support, and we’ll see you next week on lot!
Welcome back everyone! No guest this week but we do have some site improvements and a new addition to the TWoL network to announce. First and foremost we added a calendar feature it’s under “The Schedule” on the right side of our page below the RSS feed. TWoL also has a new podcast going called type II cast, it’s all about music reviews and will contain a “panel of guests” on and off. Check it out it airs on Tuesday’s at 8 pm EST right before TWoL at 9:30 EST.
Tonight we broadcast on Monday as Nick has an important event tomorrow night, but hey at least you get to start your week off with an episode! First up we banter about what shows we did and didn’t see this last week. One listener who was at the same Perpetual Groove show as Steve learns a valuable lesson about wearing a raincoat if you’re going to buy nitrous. You’ll have to listen to find out the details. Steve also hit the LCD Soundsystem.
Next up we run through the exciting announcement about Phish running a 5 night New Years Run! Starting with 2 shows in Worcester, MA and finishing off in MSG with a show on 1.1.11 this run has a lot of promise. Phish is known for pulling some serious pranks/surprises, and some of us really hope the 1.1.11 brings a huge surprise.
We run a ticket check as we try to do anytime Phish or other jambands are on tour and surprisingly we find out that tickets are dropping steadily from last week. Hang tight phanners the prices are soon to be back to face or very close for the tougher shows.
The String Cheese Incident and The Disco Biscuits are performing a Halloween run at the Hampton Coliseum. Bring on the glitter, hoops, and untz! They’re dubbing it Hulaween, if you’re going to make a trip to this show make sure to leave us a lot report!
We’ve also got a tweetup scheduled for the Atlantic City Phish shows, feel free to swing by. It’s at the classiest place in AC, the Hooters Restaurant in the Tropicana Hotel. The good news is it’s close to the venue, less than a half mile walk and if you don’t like the food the scenery should be good. You can register for the tweetup here, if we get enough people signed up we will try to reserve a party room.
Last but certainly not least we run through our voicemails…err voicemail. We only receive one voicemail this week, don’t forget to let us know what’s going on people! Program our number into your phone it’s 419-NO-WOOKS or if you’re calling from a blackberry 419-669-6657.
Thanks again for everyone listening, we’ll see you next week on lot!
