MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 327

Welcome to the 327th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday Tuesday, the most difficult of of May. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the three mystery clips, which are connected by a theme that needsn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday Thursday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!


Answer: After more than four years of sneaking in opportunities to listen to clips between teaching classes, on his lunch break, and almost assuredly while on the throne, @justino has finally won his seventh contest and been inducted into the MJM Hall of Fame as our 18th Emeritus! He didn't want to waltz in on a brute forced single clip victory, or even a double-double; instead, he cracked the hardest MJM of the month, and one laced with traps taboot. This week, he saw quickly ignored the December jams red herring, didn't get sucked into looking through the 275 Jam Chart versions or >100 shows played in California, and saw right through me and my handle to solve this week's puzzle, jams that were played on University of California campuses: 8/5/10 "Down with DIsease" (UC Berkeley), 12/6/94 "Weekapaug Groove" (UCSB), and the 12/1/96 "Tweezer" (UCLA). The skill of MJMers by the time they reach Emeritus status never ceases to amaze me – and creep me out!

For his efforts, which in addition to 7 overall victories include: a Trey-signed Hands on a Hardbody CD, 5 multiclip victories – including four in the past four months – and winning the first (and only - to date) MJM Race, @justino will receive two of the following:
- a copy of Hands on a Softbody (a softcore DVD featuring a Trey-autographed Trey blow-up doll named "TroiBoiToiBot")
- an honorable degree from the other UC, UC Merced: a Master's in MJMery
- inclusion on the group text between "The Boys" and "The Emeriti"
- a code good for a free LivePhish.com download
- a login and password to The Vault (don't even try if you don't have a login)
- Limited Edition "Très Close" tickets to Curveball
- the ability to choose clips for future MJMs

Congrats @justino! Who's up next? @TwiceBitten??

Thank you, brother! This sure was a long, hard climb.

What the hell do I do with my Mondays now?

PhreePhish That was number seven?
Welcome to the club!!

And to answer what the hell you do with your mondays-- you laugh at all the people frantically looking through every show imaginable and just wait till the end. That's why it's retirement. You're done with the rat race!

mcgrupp81 Congrats and welcome Justino. Grab a cold one and chill on the porch. Your victory is more remarkable than those before you in my eyes. When I was younger, I used to watch this game show where, at the end, you could bet your show winning on knowing the answer to a question related to pop culture category you chose. I always said I would pick the Simpsons if I was on the show. That was when there was something like 8 seasons of Simpsons. Now, we're close to 30 seasons and there would be that much more show content to sift through in your mind. Same concept with the Phish. The jams will survive us all.
