TREY: Come with us now to… Gamehendge, far away from here. Green fields, mountains off in the distance. And, you’ve got Colonel Forbin climbing up the mountain up there in the distance. As he climbs up the mountain, everything begins to quake and shake until the rocks start crumbling down from the top of the mountain all around him. He’s standing there with the rocks crumbling over his head, and he’s looking up there at this mountain, crumbling down in big pieces until it starts to take the form of a great face, this bearded figure, standing up on top of the mountain. It’s Icculus, the great and knowledgeable Icculus, and Colonel Forbin is there asking Icculus if he can help him to get the Helping Friendly Book. So Icculus is calling to his friend, the Famous Mockingbird, to fly down out of the sky. He lands on Icculus’ shoulder. Icculus tells the Famous Mockingbird to go to the castle, steal the Helping Friendly Book, and bring it back to all the innocent people of Gamehendge.
So here goes, the Famous Mockingbird, to fly to the castle, to steal the Helping Friendly Book...
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
