marco on phish

If you’ll permit a pretty rough analogy, imagine a world in which the vast majority of published fiction was in the form of 3,000-word short stories, and most people had never read anything longer. Phish is the one outlier publishing novels, and they’re pretty weird, complex novels. No effort to condense such novels into bite-sized short stories will truly capture the appeal.

marco's Intro to Phish is pretty cringeworthy too: http://www.marco.org/2011/05/26/geek-intro-to-phish

i enjoy gruber's writing on daring fireball because his insufferability is part of the weird charm. i have great friends i consider insufferable assholes because i enjoy the *style* with which they are insufferable.

gruber should never podcast, because then he's all insufferable and no style. the talk show since the move to mule is awful imo.

but i always thought dan was the best part of the talk show anyway.

the fact that a phish fan is much, much wealthier than me will gall me to my dying day.

haha you can't be an insufferable defender of the biggest company on earth who makes hundreds of thousands a year by linking to other people's writing and complaining about star wars and still qualify as cool, i agree

hoospanic GANGSTER musician (BIG HOOS aka the steendriver), Tuesday, 23 April 2013 16:22 (seven years ago) link

'better than gruber' isn't exactly an accomplishment
