Earlier this summer, SiriusXM radio launched a limited-run Phish Radio station including a special program dubbed “Ask Trey”, the channel’s centerpiece segment in which guitarist Trey Anastasio responded to questions from fans in a conversation with program host Ari Fink.Today, SiriusXM‘s Jam_ON channel has announced another round of “Ask Trey”, and is once again encouraging fans to submit their burning questions for Big Red. Fans have the chance to ask the Phish guitarist absolutely anything by submitting questions via email to [email protected] between now and Tuesday, November 13th. The answers will be broadcast live at a later date.In August, SiriusXM shared a video clip from their “Ask Trey” session about the origins of quintessential Phish composition “You Enjoy Myself”, often referred to by its initials, YEM.As Trey explained, “We went to Europe to play street music, we were nineteen… The whole summer we were buskers, me and [Jon Fishman] when he still had that crazy long hair.” When asked what the setlist for their street performances was like, Trey responded: “It was parts, bits and pieces of what became ‘You Enjoy Myself’ and ‘Harry Hood’.” The story unfolded as Trey recalled crafting the various musical segments which eventually became the composed sections of YEM.He also shed some light on the inspiration for the song’s light-hearted title. “There was this guy we were hanging with, we just met him on the street and would just hang out for hours. He was Italian and barely spoke English at all, but we were laughing. One day we were walking around right near the Uffizi Museum, and he had one arm around me and one around Fishman, and he says, [in a thick Italian accent], “You know, when I am with you, you enjoy myself!” Watch Trey discuss the origins of “You Enjoy Myself” below:Trey Anastasio on the Origins of “You Enjoy Myself”[Video: SiriusXM]
What do you do when you fail?For Magnetic Interviewing founder and CEO Philip Blackett, the answer is captured in his motto, “Adapt & Flex.”Blackett, an M.B.A. candidate in Harvard Business School’s Class of 2016, crossed the river to meet with teens from the Cambridge Housing Authority’s Workforce Development Program. In a personal exchange with students on the Harvard campus, he shared an honest account of his journey to the Business School, offering moments of both laughter and silent reflection.The entrepreneur explained how resiliency and adaptability have been the cornerstones of his success. Blackett underscored the importance of agility in order to persevere despite unexpected obstacles — including, in his case, losing his first job and a failed first business.Teacher-counselor at Work Force, Ayesha Wilson (left), gathers with students at the John Harvard Statue. Kris Snibbe/Harvard Staff Photographer“Failing at something, at some point in life, is inevitable,” he said “But often it is on the other side of a ‘failure’ that we find our greatest victories, be it personally, academically, or professionally.” The challenge, he said, is getting to the other sideBlackett’s speech served as a catalyst for the Work Force students who participated in a series of programs at Harvard designed to bolster career exploration and college awareness. It was at the close of their February break that the 32 students convened in Annenberg Hall, where some of them had attended Project Teach, an educational program that has been bringing students to Harvard for more than 20 years.After lunch, students made their way to one of three academic presentations they had chosen. Among the selections were an engineering presentation with Kathryn Hollar, director of educational outreach for Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences; a look at history with Irvin Ibarguen, a Ph.D. candidate in history in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences; and an introduction to the Hiphop Archive & Research Institute with Harold Shawn, the archive’s program director.A keynote Address is given by Philip Blackett, who shared his personal and professional trajectory that led him to Harvard Business School and eventually becoming founder of Magnetic Interviewing. Kris Snibbe/Harvard Staff PhotographerFollowing the presentations, students filled the lecture hall, quickly finding friends with whom to share their takeaways. A few showed the magic sand from the engineering discussion, while others showed off the graffiti stickers they’d received at the Hiphop Archive.In reviewing his day, Jeffte Bellevae, a freshman at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, reflected on Blackett’s keynote, which inspired Bellevae to reconsider how he viewed success. “Though there are different roads to success, you still need the same skills of hard work and dedication to get there,” he concluded.A panel discussion, led by Harvard staff and students from Harvard College and the Graduate School of Education, underscored how positivity, resiliency, flexibility, and learning from others have been central themes in helping them shape their academic and professional experiences.As Blackett had noted at the onset of the day, failure is often unavoidable. But by the end, the students were once again reminded that victories may also be waiting for them on the other side.
