visitors to the General Motors Highways and Horizons at the 1939 New York‘s World’s Fair will view the world of tomorrow from 550 comfortable moving sound chairs, moved on a Westinghouse conveyor system traveling at approximately 102 feet per minute, while touring a vast scale model of the American countryside covering more than 35,000 square feet and extending of a third of a mile on several levels of the building.  The ‘Futurama’ is the largest scale model ever constructed and includes more than 500,000 buildings and houses, over a million trees and 50,000 motor vehicles, of which thousands will be in motion

Holy Wood

Woody called to tell me he would have to get his hair cut for ‘Cheers’ the next day and it was likely to be the last time his mane would ever be this long again.  I was happy to oblige

Phish
The Baker’s Dozen – Night 13
Madison Square Garden
August 6th

After being shocked and awed by Phish’s coconutty first night of their Baker’s Dozen run at MSG, I was ready for them and I to go to infinity and beyond in their 13th and final show  

Before the concert, I huddled up with my 3 diehard Phishead buddies and we all guessed as to what they were going to play.  The final flavor/theme was pink glazed donuts with rainbow sprinkles.  I had no idea what songs of their own that they would play (cause I only know like 5 of them), but I had some ideas of what themed songs that I hoped they would play

my @phish picks were born losers

By day I’m your humble TM, but by night I’m MP, and MP’s guesses were… garbage sauce, but I really did wish they played what I guessed, and that they didn’t, or anywhere near that was actually kinda disappointing.  Sure, the boys played Bowie and the Stones and Willie Nelson, and a bunch of songs that made the faithful happy, but I really thought they were going to tear the roof off in the final night.  I mean, they did, but I just think they could have gone bigger.  Like play the Pretty In Pink soundtrack in reverse order, or something else that would be out of their comfort zone, and perhaps a little more Junior Senior-y

Still, it was the best Phish show I ever went to, but not for the music.  I me enjoyed myself cause I was with these three fellas who love Phish so much, but not as much as I love them
