Mystery Jam Monday Part 222

Posted 1 day ago by ucpete - 26 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/5723dfb4, posted in the Audio category (1055 listens)

Welcome to the 222nd edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday. I've posted three clips this week -- these three clips share something in common. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three mystery jam clips, and answer what the three clips share in common. Each person gets one guess per day, with the second “day” starting after I post the hint -- each guess should contain three songs / dates, and a guess at the commonality. 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 two MP3 codes good for free downloads of any two shows, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck!

Hint: Though you're certainly hearing Trey, Page, Mike, and Jon playing in these clips, you won't find any of the clips on PhishTracks...

Welcome to the 221st edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday. I've posted three clips this week -- these three clips share something in common.

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.

Hint (3:08 PM ET / 12:08 PM PT):

Answer: Congrats to second-time winner @mickeyjoe86 who correctly identified the 8/31/12 CDT, the 9/5/15 CDT, the 9/4/11 CDT, the 8/31/14 CDT, and the 8/31/13 CDT, all played at Dick's in CO; one of the five songs (fingers) was from the FYF show, and "Chalk Dust Torture" is purported to be Trey's favorite Phish song. Stay tuned next week for MJM 221, back at the regularly scheduled time.

Mystery Jam Monday Part 219

Posted 3 weeks ago by ucpete - 16 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/570b01ef, posted in the Audio category (880 listens)

Welcome to the 219th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday. Like last week, I've posted three clips this week -- these three clips share something in common. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three mystery jam clips, and answer what the three clips share in common. Each person gets one guess per day, with the second “day” starting after I post the hint -- each guess should contain three songs / dates, and a guess at the commonality. 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!

Answer: Congrats to first-time winner @dbertsch who quickly identified this week's trifecta: 8/2/97 Down with Disease, 4/17/04 Halley's Comet, 8/15/15 Piper, and correctly noted that all three jams lead to segues -> Tweezer. 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!

Mystery Jam Monday Part 218

Posted 4 weeks ago by ucpete - 35 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57020d71, posted in the Audio category (1689 listens)

Welcome to the 218th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, and the debut of a new era of the MJM. While Phish 3.0 officially started on 3/6/09, some might argue that the band didn't really hit its stride till five months later at the Gorge on 8/7/09. Likewise, while MJM 3.0 officially started on 11/9/15, maybe someday folks (all seven of you who tune in each week) will say that it took MJM 3.0 five months to hit its stride. Like always, the winner will receive an MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net.

I've posted three clips this week -- these three clips share something in common. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three mystery jam clips, and answer what the three clips share in common*. Each person gets one guess per day, with the second “day” starting after I post the hint -- each guess should contain three songs / dates, and a guess at the commonality. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answer to follow on Wednesday.

*Yes, these three clips were all played by Phish. Yes, none of these clips were played in my kitchen. There is something very particular that I have in mind that these clips share in common, and only that commonality (along with the three songs and dates that share it) will be accepted as the correct answer.

Note: While I expect this to be harder than your typical MJM, I don't expect it to be three times as hard; if you figure out one of the clips, you'll want to look at where / when / how / why it was played / recorded / etc. to guide and narrow your search for the other two. We'll start out this week with a more straightforward puzzle, and as folks get the hang of it, we'll take you out into Type II MJMs and beyond. If this fails miserably, the MJM always reserves the right to revert to the classic format. Good luck and have fun!

Hint: The years these jams were played are like Span, Panik, and Posey yesterday -- well, more like Span, Posey, and Panik; the commonality is like the three most important aspects of real estate investment.

Answer: Congrats to six-time winner @WayIFeel who successfully identitied the 12/13/92 Bowie, the 4/6/94 Mike's Song, and the 8/9/93 Tweezer as all being played on Canadian soil. One more win puts him on the shelf as yet another MJM emeritus -- when he's gone, who will fill his shoes?

Mystery Jam Monday Part 215

Posted 2 months ago by ucpete - 25 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/56e322bd, posted in the Audio category (1280 listens)

Welcome to the 215th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday. The winner will receive TWO MP3 codes good for free downloads of any two shows, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery jam clip. Each person gets one guess per day, with the second “day” starting after I post the hint. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answer to follow on Wednesday. Good luck!

Tuesday hint (11:49 AM ET): You may need to go a camera to figure this one out.

Answer: Congratulations to first-time winner, @TwiceBitten, who takes home two codes for reading right through my hint and identifying the 7/15/94 David Bowie from (Nikon at) Jones Beach Amphitheater on Long Island.

Note: When the MJM started nearly six years ago, @lumpblockclod was able to post a mix of more popular and more obscure jams, and would post much longer clips, sometimes upwards of three minutes. The MJM was great fun becaue it relied on folks' musical memory to win, or searching through their local music archives for things they may've recognized, or maybe they'd pull a few shows from The Spreadsheet if they thought they were going down the right path. This was still the case when @bl002e took over too, but during his tenure, three years ago this week, PhishTracks came out... and it changed the game forever. Now we're firmly planted in the Phish.in' / PhishTracks era, where everyone has every jam at their fingertips, and scanning through dozens and dozens of jams per hour is not only possible, it's routine for many. For that reason, I may be moving the goalposts back a bit in future MJMs. It'll still be the same game at the same time each week, but I'm going to experiment with some new ideas to keep it fresh and make it challenging. First, as a reminder, I am reserving the right to reuse jams that have been used in previous MJMs -- I won't post the exact same clip from a previous MJM, but you may hear a different section of a previously-used jam. Second, I may post multi-part clips, or multiple, shorter segments from the same jam or the same show. Or I may post clips from different shows and ask folks to find what they have in common. I will keep the fundamental objective of the game intact, and it'll still be fun, but I do think we're in a good position to switch things up a bit in the near future. That said, tune in next week for MJM216!

Mystery Jam Monday Part 214

Posted 2 months ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 48 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/56dbbdcf, posted in the Audio category (1486 listens)

Welcome to the 214th edition of the Mystery Jam Monday. My good friend Pete had to run off to Florida last minute, and asked me to step into the void. Unfortunately I don't think Pete will be catching the Orlando Stash on this trip, but perhaps he can introduce his kids to the Chilling Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House, since I'm pretty sure the original 1964 record album was published by Disney Records. Anyway have fun Pete, and good luck everyone: The winner will receive an MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery jam clip. Each person gets one guess per day, with the second “day” starting after I post the hint. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answer to follow on Wednesday. Enjoy!

Update March 8: And... the referee throws out the yellow flag. We have a couple of technical defaults at play here. The MJM Jury has deliberated, and decided that the fairest course is to call MJM 214 a draw and double the prize for MJM 215. At issue are 1) @sirhotpants correctly guessing the right song, but incorrect version, and then posting a giveaway hint to all others after realizing his mistake; 2) @VanNicky75 picked up on @sirhotpants's clue, but technically, he had already submitted his guess for the day (Tahoe Tweezer, which, while it may have been in jest, is a guess nonetheless). Pete and I are NOT counting this as a win for the blog, as the 8/21/87 McGrupp was correctly identified by the users. But it's not being counted as a loss either. It's simply not being counted. Next week's winner will receive two free download codes.

Guys and Gals - We just want to remind you all of a couple of fairly simple rules: 1) you get one guess per day; day 2 begins AFTER a hint is posted; and 2) if you figure out the answer after you make a guess, please don't spoil it by posting something that gives the answer away to others, like the case this week. That's it. MJM 215 will be back as usual next week. Thanks again to Pete for letting me host. I had fun watching many you try to tree a Possum that wasn't there.
