TREY: As we stand here beneath these beautiful mountains in the distance, you can picture Colonel Forbin, the mountain in the distance, the green fields of Gamehendge spreading out all around behind him, and he’s gotta go up and find the Helping Friendly Book. So he starts the climb up the mountain, slowly climbing up the mountain, rocks tumbling down, steeper and steeper, but he knows he’s got to go on, he’s reaching the top. Until finally he gets up to the top and the entire mountain starts to quake and rumble and fall apart, jagged pieces of rock falling down everywhere, leaving the image of this enormous figure, the great and knowledgeable Icculus.
There he is looking up at this huge figure of Icculus trembling above him. He says, “Icculus, i have come to you for help. I need you to help me get the Helping Friendly Book so i can bring it back to all the Lizards in Gamehendge, and they can get all the knowledge inherent in the universe and live in peace and harmony forever as they used to before the Evil King Wilson came and enslaved them all.
Here he is looking up at the great and knowledgeable Icculus. Icculus says “I can help you.” So he calls on his friend the Famous Mockingbird, who comes flying out of the sky, across the sky, and lands on Icculus’s shoulder. Icculus whispers in the Famous Mockingbird’s ear and tells him “to fly to the castle of the evil King Wilson, steal the Helping Friendly Book, and bring it back to all the innocent people.” So here he comes now, the Famous Mockingbird.

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.
