My Sweet One and Antelope each contained multiple Simpsons signals, and My Sweet One also contained an Aw Fuck! signal and Oom Pa Pa signal. Mike teased the Jeopardy! theme during Antelope, which also included a tease of A Love Supreme. Fishman quoted the vocals of Games Without Frontiers during Mike’s Song.

ArkansasTimes: Brain-dead and made of money [Phish 3D Review]



However, while the band's studio albums are built on taut, three-minute pop songs, the infamous live shows are unlistenable to my ears. The band, in signature fashion, will glut a gorgeous tune to bloated proportions with meandering, decadent solos that are technically astounding but usually indistinguishable from the previous one. While feverishly gilding the proverbial lily in concert, they rarely add anything of substance to the track, instead distracting and obscuring the core, the soul of the great songs themselves.

For better or worse, it's the official Phish stamp that defines them. The band's fans love it; it's not for me.

Now, can the same things be said about this extra-dimensional “stampede” of 3D, this “juvenile abomination,” as the increasingly outspoken Roger Ebert recently branded it? Are studios beginning to obfuscate what makes movies great — the simple heart of each — for extraneous 3D technology?
