[Inflation] has been going backwards down the number line for the better part of two years now.”

CNBC Correspondent Dan Greenhaus, who according to the New York Times blog today, peppered his January 24 financial broadcast with numerous references to Phish songs to illustrate financial concepts. According to the Times blog, the song references "sailed over" the head of Greenhaus' co-anchor, and the correspondent gave phans a heads up with a post to the PT forum to "put on CNBC now".

Watkins Glen Over July 4th Weekend?

Posted Jan 30, 2011 11:01 pm by Icculus - 1 comment Link: http://phi.sh/b/4d46340c

The band has not confirmed that they are playing Watkins Glen over the July 4th holiday weekend (June 30 - July 3), but there's been a lot of chatter about a potential festival there for weeks now. A story on "bandsthatjam.com" claimed that a contract had been signed, and it appeared to be credible -- until another story from stargazette.com reported that the President of the Watkins Glen racetrack has denied that any contract with a promoter had been signed. He confirmed, however, that they have been "working with a concert promoter."

The storm that tormented the East Coast delivered its knockout punch here in the nation’s capital, where almost 200,000 people remained without electricity on Thursday, and disruptions across the metropolitan area caused some of the worst commuting delays on the Eastern Seaboard.

Contending for the title of worst commute was Adam Rosenberg, a communications director for a software company, who spent almost 12 hours driving 50 miles from Dupont Circle in Washington through a landscape of abandoned cars, stuck buses and drivers who had given up and gone to sleep.

Mr. Rosenberg knows traffic. He used to follow the band Phish with hordes of other fans. But nothing could have prepared him for what he saw on Wednesday night. Inclines sowed chaos. Cars spun helplessly and buses slid into other lanes, leaving an obstacle course of paralyzed vehicles."

Phish and DMB this summer?

Posted Jan 28, 2011 11:21 am by zzyzx - 7 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4d42ed04

Dave Matthews Band bassist Stefan Lessard tweeted this:

DMB & Pearl Jam or DMB & Phish?”

The funny thing is that both Phish fans and Pearl Jam fans have been tweeted back “Pearl Jam.” The rumor mill is suggesting that this is perhaps for Watkins Glen, the proposed AC festival, or (please let this not be so and let us have a real run there) the Gorge. It’s interesting if nothing else.
