Answer: 26! That's how many MJM Emeriti sit in the MJM Hall of Fame now, after @serpent_deflector hit his walkoff shot this week. After his 5th and 6th wins, back-to-back in MJM407 and MJM408, it looked like a foregone conclusion he'd waltz into the Hall of Fame. But the very next week, @Chicken_Sub_In_Your_Hand burst onto the scene with his first win, and ended up racking up all seven needed to skunk @serpent_deflector and take his spot in the HoF. Not to be denied, the model of persistence ultimately prevailed, crushing this week's contest (typo notwithstanding) and finally cementing his legacy as one of the best to ever play the game. This week, he made mince meat of the "Carini"-themed MJM, quickly identifying the 12/30/12 and 7/24/18 "Carini"s, a veritable night and day pairing of the wide-ranging, 3.0-blossomed tune. For his efforts, he gets a backhanded compliment on the Hall of Fame page, yet another LivePhish code, the realization that he wasted hours of his life poking through random snippets of outro ambience on the internet in hopes to win $10 of MP3s, the thankless task of helping me choose which clips to run week after week, a wicked case of the Mondays for the rest of his life now that he can't play for keeps, and of course, his very own digital key to Phish's Vault, courtesy of Kevin Shapiro. Congrats @serpent_deflector, and welcome to retirement! Uh, you might want to avoid Florida for the next year or so...

BREATH AND BURNING

Death is always lurking. The threat of dying dominates many of our most cherished books, films, poems, and songs. The ability to navigate the day while at the same time acknowledging mortality is perhaps the most enduring theme in life. Religion, if that is your bag, soothes the collective consciousness and assures believers that there is a heaven waiting if only one lives a righteous life....

Covid-19 Relief For Music Education

Original art by Josean RivieraIn response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Mockingbird Foundation will use Emergency Grant funds to rapidly help protect music education in these unprecedented times, beginning with $25,000. Between now and July 31st, the Foundation will also match the first $25,000 in donations made by our community, to give at least $75,000 total to #ProtectMusicEd!

Please click here to donate!

Due to the slowed economy, programs across the country may be cut significantly because of budget constraints, while they are also losing the fundraising revenue generated by live performances. Some programs will struggle to survive on their own; meanwhile, all are adjusting to new circumstances that few were completely prepared to face. We asked several of our past grant recipients to share details about their current and expected future financial needs as they adapt in response to the pandemic. Here are a few of their responses:

"A grant from The Mockingbird Foundation would help put instruments in children's hands to facilitate virtual learning from home."
"It would allow me to buy an online, interactive music curriculum for my students to use."
"To help cover the cost of our program instructors because we have seen a huge loss in future funding and current donors." "Funding will help us to provide financial aid to students whose families can no longer afford our program fees." "Truthfully, my department is so underfunded and lacking in resources that any amount of money would be greatly beneficial for my students."

Thanks so much for supporting music education for children! Please help us spread the word by sharing this page and using #ProtectMusicEd on social media.

20-20 VISION

The country bluegrass classic, "20-20 Vision" was first recorded by Gene Autry (aka The Singing Cowboy) in 1957. This ophthalmology-focused lamentation of infidelity made its Phish debut on 12/28/19 during the MSG New Year’s run....

Give Mockingbird A Ride?

If you find yourself at home a lot these days, maybe you have a vehicle that you don't expect to use much in the foreseeable future? Maybe you could use an extra tax deduction? We can help you on both counts, and benefit music education in the process.

You can now donate a car, truck, motorcycle, RV, or boat to benefit the all-volunteer, fan-run Mockingbird Foundation. Fill out an easy form, and we'll get it picked up and processed, at no cost to you. You'll get an initial donation receipt from CARS, acknowledgement from the Mockingbird Foundation, and then a tax receipt when it sells.

Phish.net Hometasking #2

We've announced the second in our series of 10(+?) weekend tasks designed to give you a bit of Phishy fun and frivolity in the absence of places to go and other things to do. (Tasks 3, 5, and 8 are particularly designed to engage the kiddos, if you're looking for family bonding, but we hope that each is somewhat entertaining.) The announcements come each Friday at noon Pacific, with a deadline of Monday noon pacific to post your video (of no more than 20 seconds) in the given .net forum thread. We'll mail some prizes each week, with a grand prize at the end - and plenty of time left to get on the leaderboard.

Task #2 has been announced, and submissions have started. Be safe, and make good choices!

Phish.net #Hometasking

British comedians Alex Horne and Greg Davies host a panel show on BBC called Taskmaster, of five comedians challenged to creatively accomplish a series of tasks, such as camouflaging themselves, long-distance painting, and destroying a cake. Alex creates the tasks, the panel members compete doing them, and Greg (the Taskmaster) ranks them, esp. when time or distance isn’t the criterion. (The U.S. version kinda sucks, btw.)

They’re now doing a #hometasking series, giving viewers 30 hours to submit a 20-second video completing a task, such as create an epic sporting moment in your kitchen, do something extraordinary with a pair of trousers, and make the best dancing elephant. Worldwide, they’re giving kids something to do, families a way to come together, and even young (and not so young) adults a goofy way to get off Zoom and entertain each other from afar. (We're big fans at Chateau Lemuria: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.)

So… obviously (duh)… We’re doing a phish.net edition of #hometasking! (We’re not the first to piggyback, btw - and Alex did an earlier Advent series.) We’ll announce a Phish-related #hometasking challenge in a new forum thread each Friday afternoon. You’ll have 72 hours to submit it to the thread, and we’ll announce the “best” by Tuesday evening, prior to Dinner & a Movie. Task #1 is already up:

We’ll identify a top tier of submissions by likes on posts, so please weigh in on your faves. (Like Alex, I don’t like to judge). Those will get ranked by a .net luminary serving as the Taskmaster for that task - this week, David “ZZYZX”/”The Timer” Steinberg, the man behind PhishStats. Top winner each week will be mailed a copy of Sharin' in the Groove and two Mockingbird stickers; top overall winner at the end of the run wins a limited-edition TPC3 Jersey featuring art by AJ Masthay. We’ll track the progress over coming weeks on a leaderboard - and, oi, do we have a list of tasks! No tour? No problem! We’ve got couches, we’ve got kids, and we’ve got Phish.net!
