Drive-by blog post

Do you read Carrie Brownstein's Monitor Mix blog on NPR?

You don't?

You should.

Right now she is in the midst of a musical experiment.  She is listening to Phish and only Phish for the next 5 days in an attempt to figure out if she can become a phan of the jam band.  I wonder if this little experiment of hers is going to turn her into a dirty hippie*?

Mmmm....Phish food!

*Relax.  I'm just joking.  Mostly.

UPDATE - She just posted a video of her first experience with Phish.  Priceless!!!

Hilly - I don't really have a sweet tooth, but Phish Food is my sweet of choice. I love marshmallow goodness. It is my favorite ice cream as well. By far!

Jimmy - what will we think of next?

2abes - magic shell?

Heff - I'm not so much with the band, but I dig the ice cream.

Slyde - can't get nothing over on you, eh?

2abes said...

yeah, its liquid chocolate that turns turns into a hard chocolate shell when it hits the ice cream. Sorta like the old good humor ice cream bars with the chocolate coating. Don't store the container in the fridge

Verdant Earl said...

2abes - Aha. Thanks!

My family and I are all "clean" hippies. :)

Love the Phish Food Ben & Jerry's.

Jennifer and Sandi said...

Go Phish!

Verdant Earl said...

Seals - are nudists automatically hippies? ;)

Jenn - HA!

Poppy said...

I am from their homeland and CANNOT STAND them. I like their ice cream flavor, though. :)

Verdant Earl said...

Poppy - I didn't realize they were Phrench. ;) (Those "France/Vermont" jokes just never get old)

As an ardent Grateful Dead fan, I have always been expected to like Phish, especially after Jerry died, never really got into them, quite phrankly. I am enjoying following Carrie's immersion into all things Phish, though. Thanks for pointing it out.
