Updated: The Phish.net Overstep Contest

Phish bassist Mike Gordon's new solo album is entitled "Overstep." But what exactly does "Overstep" mean? Is it pushing, as in overstepping ones bounds? Or crossing those scary sewers by taking an extended stride, refusing to touch your foot to the grates? We think one of you can put your genius to work explaining overstep - by photo. That's right, fire up your smart phone, dig up your trusty DSLR, or load up or your 35mm film (you hipsters) and show us "Overstep" in one photo.

Overstep!
Here's my best shot. No, it's not. Shut up.

We'll be accepting entries in two ways:
1. Post a comment on this item with a link to your image. If you need a place to upload your photo, we recommend imgur.com.
2. Post your photo to Instagram using the hashtag #PhishNetOverstep.

1. It must be an original work of art.

3. Your picture must be family-friendly. No drugs or boobies, you nincompoops.

The Prizes

So what can you win? The Grand Prize winner will receive two tickets to any show on Mike's Spring 2014 tour. You can also have a bite of my pizza sometime, if we're ever hanging out and I have pizza and you're hungry. Also: internet karma and fame in a sub-community for a day!

Two runners up will received a signed copy of Overstep on compact disc. To be clear, it's signed by Mike Gordon. He plays the bass guitar on the album!

The Phish.net site team will review the entries and decide on a grand-prize winners. All entries must be submitted by Wednesday, February 19th. We'll announce the winners shortly thereafter.

Good luck, Oversteppers!

ucpete As I drove from work to Bill Graham last summer before night 1, the night for which I would be writing the phish.net review, I was about to make a right turn onto 9th St. in SoMa. As usual, I passed the "Stud Bar", a San Francisco landmark. But for the first time, I noticed that the cross street of the Stud Bar was "Gordon". I quickly pulled over across a lane of traffic to snap this shot (8/2/13 at 6:03 PM):

Yep, it was a sign -- literally and figuratively -- and Gordon was a STUD that night at the show.

(I realize this submission doesn't really have much to do with overstepping, though I could claim to be clever and say that by posting this, I'm overstepping that rule a bit. A meta-overstep if you will. The truth is that I've had this picture in my phone for 6 months and forgot about it till I saw the contest.)

This is Letchworth State Park in upstate NY. It's "The Grand Canyon of the East". You get a picture like this when you overstep the signs showing a stick man falling off a cliff.

With this little Sun (sometimes) pointing the tip of his nose, you want more than ever a wedding in the spring mood, with nice colors and especially flowers, flowers, flowers!So for that, we put on the liberty, this flowery English fabric and colored, we love! No point trimming her wedding inside dress, of course. You can simply sprinkle your marriage of a whole bunch of small flowers remaining never kitsch and chic!Discover all panels inspired Wedding Secret on Pinterest.La married, you get married in spring mode and you do not know how to add some subtle and flowery notes without this swear terribly with your dress? The solution? Flowery touches which are discrete, the flowers in your hair, and voila!Groom, the witnesses, the groom and his witnesses may, however, use accessories to add small flowers to their outfit.

We forget the shirt in liberty, decidedly a little too much and opting for neckties and bow tie.The ideal? Jules with a bow tie ' and his witnesses in tie!Bridesmaids, this time opting for the total look and we put on a completely covered dress of flowers. Nothing like young girls in flowers to brighten up a marriage! And even play the complete map, as many rely on small ballerinas to complement the style!The announcements, and presto! It was announced the good news to everyone and gentle with these adorable invitations covered with flowers!The decor is of course which will further reflect the theme of your wedding, then we put everything above, and is made so that the guests are surrounded by flowers, flowers, flowers, all with tasteful of course!

For the ceremony: whether secular or religious, rather than overloading instead, sprinkle it with bouquets of wildflowers and book a small accessory of chic to bring your alliances!For the Hall, garlands, Chinese lanterns, PomPoms... The idea is to decline the liberty in several forms, without ever overloading the room, because the key words of your wedding are freshness and lightness!For the table, to decorate the table, two solutions are available to you: either you choose a tablecloth in liberty, you are accompanying solid color tableware, or you decide to put a more sober tablecloth that you sprinkle the urge of lovely accessories. And don't forget the small gifts for your guests!Wedding dress is what every girl dream, beautiful wedding dress to dazzle us:http://www.abbydress.com/wedding-dresses-trumpet-mermaid-tskn1309023.html
