~When you think a 10 min. song is short......

~when someone is in your car and asks..."is this the same song?"

~If you write out your plans so people know what you are doing and they look like this school > soccer practice > homework > dinner > homework .....

~When you think 7 tracks on a CD is alot.....

~You purposefully take the long route home so you can listen to the sick Recreational Chemistry jam or Mountain Jam in its entirety!

~You go to a 'regular' concert and mistake the ending for the set break.

~You are amazed when other people's cd's have liner notes and cover art.............

~when no matter what time of day or night it is, and no matter if you were just there 10 minutes ago, the minute you walk near your computer you either rip to the HD, decompress, or burn a disc.

~when your at a show and your shoes start talking.

~when you don't recognize any of the songs on the Billboard charts.

~when your friends ask you why you have 300 Phish shows and you say, "Man, they've played over 1100, I don't even have half of em yet!!"

~when your non-jamfan friends all groan anytime you put on a cd.

~when you say "you might dig the newdeal" and your friends say "i don't like that hippie grateful dead type stuff you listen to".

~if you can sit in front of your stereo for hours the way one would sit in front of a tv for hours.

~when the people at the post office all scramble to go on their break when they see you coming in.

~if you consider a concert that's two and a half hours away to be a "local" show.

~instead of describing something as good or bad, it's "dank" or "schwag".

~when you're surprised that your friends that own cd burners have never heard of shn or eac.

~when you think it's pathetic that someone would download a bunch of mp3's and burn them on "pny" disks.

~when going to two concerts in one month is withdrawal.

~when you use your book money at the beginning of the semester to attend a festival.

~when you own 600 cds of one band but none of them are official releases.

~your entire closet full of t-shirts are band tour tees.

~you've ever flown to see your favorite band.

~you have a pet named after a song by your favorite band.

~you have a vanity lisence plate with a reference that only another fan of your favorite band would understand.

~just because you'll only get three hours sleep after driving home from a show before you have to go to work isn't a good enough reason to miss a show.

~study for finals or hit the last leg of fall tour?

~you know what this means:
Neumann km140 (split 25', clamped to loge railing) > Apogee Mini-Me (+5dB, 16bit, 44.1kHz) > Digigram VX Pocket V2 > Sony Vaio Picturebook C1MW > n-Track Studio > CDWav > SHN

~if you'll let someone you met on the internet crash at your house after a show and don't think anything of it.

~when you read all the way down to here

~when the only reason you have cable tv is because you can't get a cable modem without it.

~when you spend more time on a message board/listserv than you do talking to your real-life friends.

~When you tell your friends to name a date, and from that date you can name 2 or more setlists in their entirety of your favorite band.

~If you know what a ganja-gooball is

~You can't remember the last time you listened to the radio

~when you have a shoebox full of ticket stubs

~when you start dancing in your chair in the middle of class
You don't think 69 is a sexual postion but rather a good year for Dead bootlegs.

~When you wonder how uncanny it is that you glance at your watch at exactly 4:20 about every other day.

~...when you buy overpriced food from a dirty stranger in a freakin' parking lot.

~...when your beer is darker than 98% of your friends.

.~..when you look for a song title in every shirt you see.

~...when someone starts a sentence with 'veggie' you actually listen to the rest of it.

~...when MTV is skipped on your TV.

~...when your kids get soap in their mouths when they say mp3.

~When you could go for about a month straight without sleeping and never listen to the same show twice

~When you are more excited by the 35 minute Darkstar you just listened to than your own birthday

~When someone says anything, you can reference it to a Phish song

~when you know what 6up means.

~when you've helped out a brother by yelling 6up.

~when you know to look out for the middle aged white guys with a clean hair cut wearing a brand new tie-dye who say "i'm an old deadhead, know where i can get any dope?"

~When your listening to a show and could have sworn you heard that jam from someone else.

~When your favorite songs are always changing because the decision is based upon wether they jammed it out or not.

~When You have 1200+ hours of live music

~When you are driving in your car listening to a show you just got in the mail with no idea what the setlist is and you basically pretend you are at the show and start yelling "whoo hoo a Cities"--hey i got a cities

~when you won't listen to any band that doesn't allow taping.

~your feet have tanlines from your birkinstocks.

~you think people are crazy when thet dont know who GM,ABB,dTb,OPM,UM,KDTU,SCI,GD,WP are.

~you have dreadlocks, yet you laugh at people with mullets.

~you do your back-to-school clothes shopping in the parking lot of deer creek.

~you won't wear deodorant, yet you'll wear patchouli.

~...when you give people poo for buying a cd for $14.99, when you can get 50 for that same price

~you dream about being on tour.

~april 20th, october 31st, and december 31st are bigger holidays than christmas, easter, and thanksgiving.

~you take more time organizing your shows than your apartment

~you take more care in organizing your shows than your laundry

~you laugh at people who don't know what pro-sleeves are

~when people ask you for a 'bootleg', you just hang your head in despair

~when you grade the phriendliness of cities by the attittude of the local cops at the shows

~when you spell anything with an 'f' with a 'ph'

~when you see a 'L@@K rare show' on ebay you think of how you would like to kill the seller and all seller's like him

Great post Krishna. I have wasted many gallons of gas driving around my neigborhood to hear the end of an extended jam or the end of a great tune.

I did this at an ABB Lakewood show in the 90's. We were the first in the lot and about an hour earlier than everyone else. I was disappointed because the preshow enviroment is a damn good time.

Does it count if you get up and dance during a menopause commercial?

When you'll quit you job, sell your $100k+ brick house on the nice side of town just so you can have enough $$ to live in your '79 Nomad camper at Wanee all year insuring you'll have the same site close to campjam next year.



Is it April yet?

watching a band jam for hours is sweet, but it pales in comparison to having a couple of guitar players, a bass player, and maybe someone sitting in on keys at your house and you play for about half a day.
