MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 288

Welcome to the 288th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second-hardest of the easiest MJM month of this year – where that leaves it overall is an exercise best left to the reader. 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 song and date of the mystery clip. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday. Good luck!

Hint: The word that comes to mind: portmanteau.

Answer: Congrats to first-time winner @wforwumbo who knew what a portmanteau was and correctly identified the 11/27/96 "Down with Disease" (-> JJLC > SOAMule, Tweezer -> Sweet Emotion -> DWD), known by many as the "Diseezer." While it isn't the most popular year from a fan or MJM clip selection perspective, there are certainly some great jams / sets / shows across 1996, the year before Phish became a weapon of mass destruction. Come back Monday for MJM289, the hardest of the month.

FunkyCFunkyDo Really missed out on a Halfway to the Moon / Blister in the Sun / 2001 mashup, but for the sake of Occam's Razor, I'll go with 9.29.99 2001.

ucpete I totally should have done something eclipse related this week, but I went camping for my birthday this weekend and the kids started school today, plus GoT, so I didn't get down to MJM business till late last night.

Or this is a lie to keep you off the trail. I guess we'll find out tomorrow when this bad boy reaches the hint.

Coleman_ Phish.in link - Other portmanteu jams include Tweezpian (2-year anniversary today) and Fleezer. I'm sure I'm missing some obvious ones, though...

Some folks call the Tahoe Tweezer "The Tahweezer" – and the 8/22/15 Tweezer > Caspian (-> Tweezer in G) is often called "TweezerPants" as well. Don't forget about the jam I used a couple weeks ago, the 8/7/15 Chalk Dust -> Tweezer, which folks were calling "The Cheezer." And of course the "HollyHood." And there are also the "JimFoams" and "MonkeyTops" of the world, and the YEMSGs and MGYEMs...

There are likely many others I can't recall...
