Mystery Jam Monday Part 228

Posted 3 days ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 26 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/576d2cfa, posted in the Audio category (1345 listens)

Welcome to the 228th edition of Mystery Jam Monday. This week, we continue with our Hall of Fame Series, when we hand the keys to the MJM command center over to one of the now eight, seven-time MJM winners. For week 2 of this Emeritus Series, we welcome @pauly, the second person forced into mandatory, early retirement after notching his seventh MJM victory.

To Win: Be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the five mystery jam clips, and answer what they share in common. Each person gets one attempt per day, with the second “day” starting after the Blog posts the hint -- each answer should contain five songs / dates, along with the commonality between them. No sharing or trading of answers is allowed. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answer to follow on Wednesday. The winner will receive an MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck, and thanks again to @pauly for hosting this second week of the MJM Hall of Fame Series.

NOTE: As a thank you and congratulatory gesture from @ucpete to his (new) MJM Emeritus brethren, he's opted to forfeit his winning code from last week and instead will allow the other MJM Hall of Fame winners to scrap for it in a special MJM: Championship Edition. If one of the MJM Emeritus winners takes down the MJM: Championship Edition, he will win the extra code. If all Hall of Famers fail to take home the extra code, but someone else solve's @pauly's MJM, that winner will take home two codes. The MJM Emeritus winners will refrain from answering MJM 228, and the weekly guessing crew will return the favor by not spoiling the MJM: Championship Edition, but both groups should use the comments section to provide their answers.

@RabeldyNugs, @pauly, @ghostboogie, @bl002e, @PersnicketyJim, @mcgrupp81, and @yunkfunk: >>> MJM: Championship Edition <<<

Hint for MJM 228:

Hint for MJM: Championship Edition: .gnihtemos lleps sMJM tsoM

Answer: It took a five-part, super difficult MJM to get there, but for only the 16th time, the Blog (c/o @pauly) has won! The name of the guy in the picture is "Pauly," just like the MJM savant of yesteryear. The clips?

Piper - 9/17/99
After Midnight - 5/31/11
Undermind - 8/15/11
LA Woman - 12/30/03
You Enjoy Myself - 4/29/94

While the Emeritus crew did a great job stumping the regulars this week, they clearly couldn't handle a taste of their own medicine and didn't even muster a single guess or answer for any of the three clips! So let's do it this way: anyone who can solve the MJM: Championship Edition will win the code I put up for adoption last week -- submit your answer in the comments any time. And next week, we'll play for two more codes regardless. The MJM:CE triple clip (over on SoundCloud) already has a hint, and there's nothing dirty about it -- it's three Phish jams from regular shows in wide circulation. Thanks for playing, and we'll see you next week for the next iteration of the MJM Hall of Fame series.

Mystery Jam Monday Part 227

Posted 1 week ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 21 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57620feb, posted in the Audio category (947 listens)

Welcome to the 227th edition of Mystery Jam Monday. Beginning this week and continuing throughout summer, we will be honoring our lifetime MJM champions, that elite group of seven contestants who each won MJM on seven separate occasions, thereby necessitating retirement from active competition. Each week, we'll give one of these emeritus winners the chance to select the MJM, and pit their proven knack with today's crop of top notch talent. To make things even more interesting, our very own host, @ucpete, has temporarily vacated his post, so that he can get back in the action, hoping desperately to eek out that elusive 7th win, so that he too can join the ranks of the Legendary. But ol' Pete has some tough competition from the likes of other 6 time winners, @schvice and @WayIFeel. Who will reach the top of Mt. Icculus first? Perhaps, it will be this week's guest MJM trickster, the first and all-time leading MJM Champion – welcome @RabeldyNugs:

"It's such an honor to be a part of this elite group, even though I miss out on the fun every Monday. Monday just hasn't been the same since being 'voted' into this Hall of Fame, so to speak. I wish everyone the best of luck, though not so much during my watch. And be safe on Tour."

To Win: Be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the five mystery jam clips, and answer what they share in common. Each person gets one attempt per day, with the second “day” starting after the Blog posts the hint -- each answer should contain five songs / dates, along with the commonality between them. No sharing or trading of answers is allowed. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answer to follow on Wednesday. The winner will receive an MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck, and thanks again to @RabeldyNugs for hosting our kick off week of MJM Hall of Fame Hosts.

Hint: "There are only patterns, patterns on top of patterns, patterns that affect other patterns, patterns hidden by patterns, patterns within patterns. If you watch closely, history does nothing but repeat itself."

- Chuck Palahniuk

Answer: Now comes seven time winner @ucpete, stepping into the winner's circle one final time, before taking his seat with the Pantheon of Elders. Navigating a treacherous, obstacle-ridden course set by all-time MJM champion @RabeldyNugs, Pete correctly identified the tracks (8/15/93 Tweezer, 7/1/98 Tweezer, 6/10/00 Jam after Gin, 12/8/94 Possum, and 8/10/04 AC/DC Bag), and theme (jams from shows containing jams with which @RabeldyNugs won previous MJMs). This Iditarod-like quest was replete with challenges, even for the veteran players. The double lead-off Tweezer sent at least a few folks chasing Tweezers for a theme. Meanwhile there's something rotten in Denmark, and that smell apparently caused @WayIFeel to take a wrong turn in Copenhagen. Another presumed contender, @schvice, was stuck in the sled shop and never hit the trail in time to make a serious race for the crown. As a final trap intended to ensnare all but the most worthy, the third track, a "song" listed on the tape from 6/10/00 as "Jam" (after Bathtub Gin and before Twist) is not included on the PhishTracks or Phish.in' recordings for this show, but is included on the Spreadsheet version. To further complicate matters, our friends on the Setlist team have not characterized this 2:39 piece of music as a "Jam," so a quick search of @RabeldyNugs's winning shows doesn't yield any helpful pointers.

Congrats to Pete, thanks again to @RabeldyNugs for leading off the Hall of Fame Guest Host Series, and I hope everyone had fun this week, just in time for the beginning of Tour. Be sure to tune in next Monday, when our next guest host, @pauly throws down the gauntlet for MJM 228.

The winner will receive an MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck, and have a great Memorial Day -- the Blog takes no political stance, but maybe we can take a moment today to remember those who have died in service of our country, enabling us to do things like BBQing and drinking beer all day, or listening to 30 second Phish clips over and over again in hopes of winning MP3 download codes!

Answer: Congrats to four-time winner @highhat, who quickly identified the 7/28/98 Lengthwise, the 9/27/00 Gumbo, and the 11/27/09 Tomorrow's Song – all songs with Fishman-penned lyrics. The MJM will take a short break and will return on Monday, June 20th, just in time for Summer Tour.

Hint:

Answer: Congrats to @TwiceBitten, now @TwiceAnMJMWinner, who correctly identified the 5/7/94 Dog Log (Soundcheck), 6/16/95 Runaway Jim, 9/2/87 Shaggy Dog, 7/12/03 Dogs Stole Things, 5/3/85 McGrupp (PhishTracks and Phish.in' have a track labeled "Whipping Post -> McGrupp", but it only contains Whipping Post), 8/21/15 The Dogs, 7/23/88 No Dogs Allowed, 8/21/87 Harpua, and 12/2/97 Dog Faced Boy, as well as the canine theme that connects them all. I must say I'm really pleased with so many folks taking a crack at this week's crazy MJM, so I'm curious to see how folks do next week when we'll be back with our now typical 3 clip + theme format for MJM226: Holiday Edition.

In doing so, he takes home yet another free download code – who's gonna take one home next week?

Answer: Congrats to first-time winner @Hamphish, who takes home two codes by identifying the 5/17/99 Voodoo Child (Slight Return), the 4/11/04 Chalk Dust Torture, and the 2/1/92 Tone Clone, in addition to figuring out the theme of "Jams where Phish played at another band's gig" (all shows took place, not surprisingly, in Vermont) -- in these cases, Phish with Russ and Tony from TAB, Phish alone after rotating one-by-one with the members TAB, and Phish with the members of Shockra. For those of you who may be asking "Who the heck is Shockra and why did Phish play a few shows with them?", you may be surprised to hear that Mike was taking lessons from Shockra bassist Edwin Hurwitz, a local expert in slap bass, and Mike was keen on adding the technique to his growing repertoire. See you in five days!

Hint:

Answer: For only the 15th time in 221 MJMs (6.8% W%), the Blog wins!

The Blog's record has now improved to 15 wins, 179 outright losses, and 26 hint-aided losses (plus the voided MJM 214). The guessing crew was on the right track, but ultimately fell short. The picture of the Lidocaine ointment was a nod to the topical nature of this week's MJM -- note that it says "For Topical Use Only" on the label. The topic itself is Mr. Rogers Nelson, also known as Prince Rogers Nelson; this week's jams were played at shows during which Phish covered The Purple One: 12/31/98 Antelope ("1999"), 12/30/94 Tweezer ("Purple Rain"), and 8/28/93 Stash ("Purple Rain"). Come back next week for MJM 222, where we'll play for two download codes.

I'm impressed that the guessing crew has taken down the new format twice in two weeks without too much fuss. We'll see if that changes next week, when MJM 220 drops at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET to give the can't .net at work crew a better chance at glory. Thanks for playing!
