For this week we have a nice Phish show from 1993 at Liberty Lunch in Austin, TX. This show features some great commentary from Fishman during Adeline.
For this week we have a nice set from JJ Cale which, I believe, is a sound board copy from his show at Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, CA 07/27/1996.
After a few weeks off, here is the Stones bootleg Accoustic Motherfuckers. This contains songs spanning from 1968-69 and a few outtakes from the 93 Voodoo Brew sessions. The sound quality on this is great, check it. read more
After an exhausting Coachella weekend I didn't really want to spend much time doing anything, much less find a good show for this week, so the easiest route I could think of is to compile a list of all Phish shows that took place on the magical date 4/20. So if your not going to see the phish 3D movie today, you can download these shows and enjoy your day with some old Phish. read more

I was recently moving some backend code to python, and I quickly realized that I've never worked with a database within python (outside of django). After some quick googling I found the MySQLdb package. MySQLdb is a wrapper for the _mysql api, and it allows you to interact with your MySQL database from within python. In this article I will show you how to install and use MySQLdb. read more
After falling into web development, I wasn't sure what programming language to use. 'Web' programming languages I knew were Python, Ruby, and a little PHP. While I really like the speed and 'feel' of Python, and heard (many, many, many) times about how cool Ruby is (it is. more on that later), I chose PHP. I knew that there were many popular sites written in PHP, every hosting company supports PHP, and it has a 'similar' syntax and flow as my background (C). I know there are millions of people who hate PHP, and I actually agree with a few of their arguments (Though a good programmer should know to sanitize input (RE: PHP == exploits)). I realized that PHP, like Perl, allowed me to hack up a solution easily and quickly, albeit the end result may be a bit ugly. Well this is where Codeigniter (CI) and Model-View-Controller (MVC) come to play. Four years and 15 or so projects later, I realized that, with PHP, my code is not very pretty. Read that as, I would be embarassed if someone had to maintain/debug/(and in some cases)see my code. Now this is not PHP's fault, I actually like the fact that I can always hack something together and make it work, but I would like a little more 'constraint' with how lazy I can get. read more
I was wondering what to write about for my first post on the newly remodeled mylazyhouse blog and I realized I have never made a proper list of my favorite phish shows. Well I couldn't do that because that list is ever changing, so I decided to just write down what I have been listening to recently. I also wanted to state that this is simply a list of my (current) favorite phish shows not "a list of the best phish shows ever!?!!!". A link has been provided to an mp3 download of the show, if you would like to find a higher quality .shn/.flac version check bt.etree.org. read more
