Sure, some of you are probably sitting out there with your universal remote controls falling between the seat cushions on your sectional sofas as you catch up on your electronic correspondences and enjoy a film with surround sound speakers strategically placed throughout your sprawling living room…but that’s not how we roll here. There is no television in our living room, no dvd player in our apartment, and to be honest there’s not even electricity in our living room at the moment due to a monstrous water bubble that appeared in our ceiling months ago that, prior to exploding, seeped water into the electrical unit. At least, that’s my theory.

So what you are looking at here is myself and the roommate trying to get the Phish dvds to play on the flat screen tv via that ancient laptop. (This actually took place several nights ago, but I forgot I took this picture, and this epic phail—sorry—really must be documented.) After a few phone calls, a lot of cursing, much Googleing, 90 minutes, and ultimately utter defeat destroying all hope of hearing Ya Mar that night—we gave up. “It’s a complicated case, Maude,” but if you have any ideas, by all means…

I can’t really get into details right now because it would be a huge time suck, but let’s just say back in 1996 I took a few days off work from Subway sandwich shop in Burlington, VT (the one next to Nectar’s) and sailed across Lake Champlain to attend Phish’s Clifford Ball. Somehow we camped out in the Friends & Family section, which was pretty sweet, and I had such an amazing time that upon my return I hand illustrated and wrote a short story about the experience. I bound each book in hemp, and gave a copy to everyone I went with.

So as you can imagine, when I opened my mail at work today and found this, I was pretty excited to experience it all over again as an old lady. (Now I just need a DVD player, and a giant movie screen.)
