Mystery Jam Monday Part 236

Posted 1 day ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 14 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57b849b6, posted in the Audio category (724 listens)

And then there was one. Welcome to MJM Week 236, the tenth and final week of our Hall of Champions Series, Volume I. We welcome Emeritus Champion @schvice into the recording studio, where he has picked out this week's theme and tracks, all for your listening pleasure. @schvice recently gained Emeritus status, after winning his seventh MJM in Week 232, when he successfully navigated a challenging Gamehendge-based course set by @mcgrupp81. Where once he was the bane of the Blog, foiling themes and jams thought unsolvable, now @schvice has (thankfully) gone to the Dark Side, hoping that he can lead the Blog to that elusive victory number 17. Only one way to find out: let it rip.

To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three 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 three 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 one MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck!

Mystery Jam Monday Part 235

Posted 1 week ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 10 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57ad3210, posted in the Audio category (818 listens)

Welcome to week nine of the Hall of Champions Series, the 235th installment of Mystery Jam Monday. This week, our honorary guest host is seven-time winner @WayIFeel, who recently joined the ranks of the Emeritus Club after solving @PersnicketyJim's tricky theme involving songs written by each individual band member. Now it's @WayIFeel's turn to play the riddler, and here we go.

To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three 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 three 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 one MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck!

Hint: No hint needed.

Answer: Congratulations to @andrewrose, who nailed his third MJM victory after correctly identifying the theme: cover songs; and the tracks: the 7/31/98 Cities, the 12/8/99 Ya Mar, and the 8/21/87 Skin It Back. Although he's won twice previously, @andrewrose has been on a MJM victory hiatus of sorts since 2012, so it's great to have him back in the winner's circle. Thanks again to @WayIFeel for hosting a very enjoyable round, the penultimate edition of the Summer 2016 Hall of Champions MJM Series. Please join us next week as our tenth and final Emeritus Champion, @schvice serves up the MJM 236 fare. And have your MJM skills finely honed, because @schvice has grown weary of watching the Blog get crushed week in and week out, and he's come up with a MJM worthy of his Emeritus Champion status.

Mystery Jam Monday Part 234

Posted 2 weeks ago by ucpete - 19 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57a834f0, posted in the Audio category (1271 listens)

Welcome to the 234th edition of Mystery Jam Monday. Continuing with our Hall of Fame Series this week, allow myself to introduce... myself -- the eighth of the ten seven-time MJM winners. I forced myself into retirement after a one week reunion tour during this very stretch of the MJM Emeritus Editions, and will crawl back into the shadows for a couple more weeks so the great and knowledgable @Dog_Faced_Boy can finish off his fantastic guest hosting stint of this now ten-week stretch of Hall of Fame MJM competitions.

To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three 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 three 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 one MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck!

Hint:
Trying to make a contest that you lose
And the setlist doesn't mention vacuum

Answer: Congrats to @12_29_97_4eva who wins his second consecutive (and third overall) MJM by correctly identifying the 8/13/93 Bathtub Gin, the 12/10/94 Weekapaug Groove, and the 11/29/97 Runaway Jim, tied together by the fact they were all Weekapaug Jams. Tune back in on Monday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET for the penultimate edition of the MJM Hall of Fame series, when @WayIFeel takes the reins and plays the game from this side of the fence for the first time.

Mystery Jam Monday Part 233

Posted 3 weeks ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 17 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/579c19b7, posted in the Audio category (1284 listens)

Welcome to the 233rd edition of Mystery Jam Monday. Continuing with our Hall of Fame Series, this week we welcome Emeritus champion @yunkfunk, who is the seventh of our ten seven-time MJM winners. Forced into early retirement last December, we hope @yunkfunk has been enjoying Mondays, now that he has all that free time on his hands. For our delight, he has thoughtfully selected this week's tracks and theme. Here goes:

To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the four 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 four 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 one 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 @yunkfunk for hosting this seventh week of the MJM Hall of Fame Series.

Hint: R.I.P. - 1947 - 2016 (p.s. - you might want to start with the jam chart).

Answer: Congratulations to @12_29_97_4eva, who scored his second MJM win this week by correctly identifying the theme, David Bowie, and the four tracks, the versions from 7/25/03, 10/5/95, 2/3/91, and 11/17/94, respectively. Perhaps I spoiled @yunkfunk's likely Emeritus victory, by throwing in a blatantly obvious hint, but given the lack of responses after Day 1, it seemed as though people were struggling with this week's tough selections. Anyway thanks again to @yunkfunk for hosting and for coming up with a great theme. And congratulations to rising star @12_29_97_4eva.

Join us next week for MJM 234, as the Hall of Champions Emeritus Series rolls on, hosted by Emeritus Champion number eight, our very own regular MJM Host, @ucpete. Just back from European holiday, Pete is sure to have had some down time to stitch together an unbeatable MJM, thereby assuring the Blog of finally winning that elusive victory number 17 (out of 234 tries). See you next week!

Mystery Jam Monday Part 232

Posted 4 weeks ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 18 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/579573c8, posted in the Audio category (1233 listens)

Welcome to the 232nd edition of Mystery Jam Monday! Continuing with our Hall of Fame Series, where we welcome one of our nine, seven-time MJM winners into the MJM recording studio, and let that Emeritus winner select the tracks for this week's competition. For week 6 of this Emeritus Series, we welcome @mcgrupp81, the sixth person forced into mandatory retirement after impressively earning seven victories between November 2012 and November 2015.

To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three 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 three 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 one 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 @mcgrupp81 for hosting this sixth week of the MJM Hall of Fame Series.

Hint: "I was asked to provide a hint, and I am only doing so because you guys are such a great, attentive audience."

Hint regarding the 2nd Track: Just as the faithful dog McGrupp likes to keep close to the heal of his master, Colonel Forbin, the song from which the 2nd track was selected is closely associated with and adjacent to another, larger song. It is this leading song, the master if you will, which relates specifically to this week's theme.

Answer: Congratulations to @Schvice, who not only takes down a doozy MJM and earns his seventh victory, but as a result, he is now forced into mandatory retirement, becomeing only the 10th person to join the Hall of Champions Emeritus Club. @Schvice accomplished this feat by correctly identifying the tracks: Wilson from 12/8/92, the Jam after McGrupp from 7/5/98, and AC/DC Bag from 2/14/03, as well as the theme: Gamehendge Songs. Special thanks to this week's Emeritus host, @mcgrupp81 who selected the tracks and theme.

In the last few weeks, we have witnessed the expansion of the Emeritus Club, as victories by @ucpete, @WayIFeel and now @Schvice have increased its membership from seven to ten. Will a new generation of MJM savants materialize, or will the Blog finally improve its dismal win-loss record? Only one way to find out: tune in next Monday for MJM Part 233, as the Emeritus Series continues with our guest host, @yunkfunk.

Mystery Jam Monday Part 231

Posted 1 month ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 22 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/578c33c9, posted in the Audio category (1153 listens)

Welcome to the 231st edition of Mystery Jam Monday! This week we continue with our Hall of Fame Series, where we welcome one of our eight, seven-time MJM winners into the MJM recording studio, and let that Emeritus winner select the tracks for this week's competition. For week 5 of this Emeritus Series, we welcome @PersnicketyJim, the fifth person forced into mandatory retirement after taking the Blog by storm with seven victories in the span of twenty-six MJMs.

To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the four 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 four 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 one 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 @PersnicketyJim for hosting this fifth week of the MJM Hall of Fame Series.

Hint: There is a reason there are four clips this week.

Answer: Congratulations to @WayIFeel who recorded his seventh MJM victory by correctly identifying this week's four clips: "Say Something" from 8/30/13, a Mike Gordon penned song; "Mr. Completely" from 7/15/03, a Trey Anastasio song; "Heavy Rotation" from 7/22/15, by Page McConnell; and "Ha Ha Ha" from 2/26/97, a Jon Fishman song. The theme, also identified, was songs credited to an individual member of the band. It appeared that the blog might score a rarified victory, but in the final hour, @WayIFeel came through with the correct answers and theme. With this victory, he now retires from regular participation, and becomes only the ninth member of the Hall of Fame Club comprising all the retired seven time winners. Fortunately we will welcome @WayIFeel back in just a few weeks, when moves across the table and selects the theme and clips for week 9 of the MJM Emeritus Series. Special thanks to @PersnicketyJim for a really great MJM Emeritus theme and clips. So close. So close.... Please join us next Monday, July 25, when week 6 of the MJM Emeritus Series will launch, hosted by Emeritus Champion @mcgrupp81. Also wishing happy and safe travles to regular MJM host and Emeritus Champion number eight, @ucpete. See you all next week!

Mystery Jam Monday Part 229

Posted 2 months ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 10 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/5779aa5b, posted in the Audio category (1413 listens)

Happy Fourth of July and welcome to the 229th edition of Mystery Jam Monday! This week, we continue with our Hall of Fame Series, where we hand the keys to the MJM command center over to one of the eight seven-time MJM winners. For week 3 of this Emeritus Series, we welcome an MJM savant and host emeritus, @bl002e, the third person forced into mandatory retirement after notching his seventh MJM victory.

To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three 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 three 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 two MP3 codes good for free downloads of any two shows, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck, and thanks again to @bl002e for hosting this third week of the MJM Hall of Fame Series.

NOTE: @ucpete's MJM: Championship Edition from last week still hasn't been solved, despite a hint and a week since it was posted, and he has opened up the competition to all comers now. With no time-limit, surely someone will be able to solve it and take home yet another download code... right? Listen here, but leave your answer in the comments on the blog below.

Answer: Congratulations to @soul_shakedown who wins his first MJM and two download codes by identifying the Lemonwheel Soundcheck Jam, the Coventry Soundcheck Jam, and the Magnaball Soundcheck Jam and of course, the 1.0 / 2.0 / 3.0 Soundcheck Jams theme that connected the three. Thanks to former MJM host @bl002e for reprising his role. Next week's host, @ghostboogie, is not only busy picking clips that will stump you, but he's also closing in on the solution to the MJM: Championship Edition. No one wants to try to give him a run for his money?

Mystery Jam Monday Part 228

Posted 2 months ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 26 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/576d2cfa, posted in the Audio category (1523 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 SoundButt) 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 2 months ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 21 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57620feb, posted in the Audio category (951 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.
