R.I.P. Phantasy Tour


It's a sad day in the virtual Phish world. I got the following message this afternoon:
joker-
dude, just talked to paul [glace]. primarily under frustration of the bad press PT has received lately - and the general negativity and immaturity that seemed to run rampant at the message boards - has decided to shut down PT for good. a while back he simply stopped paying the bill on the server space, and it looks like today was the day it got erased. its dunzo. adios. goodbye.
Normally this is the kind of rumor that I would take straight to Phantasy Tour. But now that its gone, well, I don't know quite what to do or say. Except maybe...Kangfirmed?

Where will the schwilly rif-raf go now that Phantasy Tour is no more? Will all of us find a new way to waste time at work? Let us know your thoughts.

THIS IS FUCKED! The internet is so BORING without reading PT drama!

maybe we can start a new one...

sweet_willy tour?

Sara said...

wow ... seriously i'm in shock. it sucked that there was so much pt drama but i wish there would have been a better way to clean up than to end! i will greatly miss pt ... in fact, as dorky as this may sound, some of my greatest friends i met because of pt.

wow oh wow oh wow ... i really don't know what to think. i'm hoping this is just a practical joke. we didn't even have any warning!

I agree, PT has it's downfalls (and a lot of them), but it does serve some good. I was able to get my girlfriend her Alpine tickets through a kind phan on PT for face. Now I'm about to start looking for tickets to Darien>Hartford>Merriweather>SPAC and don't know where to look. Please PT, come back.

Might as well throw this in there:
ISO: Darien, Hartford, Merriweather, SPAC (I'll pay face +$5 for the trouble).

actually there have been rumors for months now that Paul was fed up with all the bitching and was about to pull the plug.

Well if true it sucks...anyone NOT gotten a Fenway email yet?

jonas0tt0 said...

this is being confirmed by several sources now. The nail in the coffin was a lawsuit that had something to do with "microbabes"?

Not sure what that means.

supermario said...

"microbabes" would actually be "metrobabes".
Long story. I just heard bites and pieces. It occurred Saturday night and was apparently quite the spectacle of all things PT. Hilarity ensued at it's finish.

Well..it won't be too hard to find another free web message board to call home. Although the show database and listings were great.

I still stand by my original opinion that PGlace is a chode.

Tree said...

Damn. I had such a heady low user number. WTF!

Jill said...

I am so glad to hear this.

the joker said...

^^Somebody needs to watch the big lebobski again.

no said...

go to www.phishhook.com theyre awaiting your arrival one and all or maybe try phishhookisdownagain.com
tell one and all about both sites

Anastasiophan said...

PT is back, this Blog is garbage!

durbin said...

if this is true, damn. i had a real love/hate relationship with PT. on the plus side, i'll be a lot more productive at work (like i was today). on the minus side, there were PTers that i had hoped to meet at some point but never got the chance. oh well. i guess i can still meet them at some point, somehow.

personally, i don't blame paul one bit. (note: i don't know him and am not a frequent pglace apologist.) people were bitching so much when the site was slow the last few months. if i were him, the last straw for me would have been the incessant personal attacks (e.g. the "i hate paul glace" (or whatever it was) facebook group).

but, they just upgraded the server last week! i took that as a sign that PT would be around for a while. doesn't make sense to install a new server and then kill the site. oh well. bye PT.
