Phish’s Mike Gordon Spotted Filming With Broad City’s Ilana Glazer Dressed In Meme’d All-White Outfit

first_imgToday, a Phish fan happened upon an exciting sight in New York City: Mike Gordon, clad in his meme’d, all-white getup from Dick’s night two, filming a scene with Broad City‘s Ilana Glazer, presumably for the upcoming final season of the hit comedy series.In the photo that’s circulated, Glazer and Gordon are sitting on a sidewalk bench, both taking photos of Mike’s shoes, socks, and pants in the pose Mike repeatedly used to show off his performance outfits on Instagram throughout this past summer’s tour. The photo seems to indicate that this cameo will not only reference the ongoing Broad City/Phish connection but also riff on Gordon’s quirky social media presence and the outfit that sparked a thousand memes. [Note: Ilana’s outfit in the photo is similarly fabulous]. Check out the photo below: An actual Phish-y cameo on the final season of Broad City would be a fitting culmination of years of mutual admiration and shout-outs between the minds behind the show and the members of the band. Glazer and her Broad City co-star and co-creator, Abbi Jacobson, have always made a habit of dropping Phish references into the show. Abbi’s character on Broad City—and the real-life Abbi she’s based on—are big Phish fans, and often joke about her love for the band, from flirting with hippie dudes by dropping “Cavern” lyrics to flashing images of “Big Daddy Trey” across the screen during a mushroom trip episode.Earlier this year, during his February 13th, 2018 solo acoustic show in Wilmington, Delaware, Trey Anastasio took a moment to speak about his lofty opinions of Glazer and Jacobson. As Trey joked,I should dedicate this one to two of the coolest women on Earth [points to someone in the audience], you know who I’m talking about…Do you? You know Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer? I put ’em in like 5th and 6th [coolest], which is pretty good, because my wife, Sue [Anastasio], is number 1, and my daughters are two and three…Then, during this year’s Phish summer tour, Abbi Jacobson attended the band’s first of two shows at Camden, NJ’s BB&T Pavilion. As documented in a number of amusing posts on Abbi and Mike Gordon’s Instagram pages, Jacobson mingled backstage and talked Phish with “The Boys,” taking selfies with Page McConnell, posing for photos with Trey, and playing bass guitar tug-of-war with Mike. According to one of the posts, she also mentioned to Mike that her favorite album is Rift. The band went on to play the title track from Rift during the show, so you may just have Abbi to thank for that one.We can’t wait to see what Abbi and Ilana are cooking up with Mike. There’s only one thing to say: “Yas queen!!!”Broad City season 5 is scheduled to air on Comedy Central in early 2019.

GSD Professor

first_imgZenglu Li, a professor in soybean breeding, genetics and genomics at the University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES), has been named to the Georgia Seed Development Professorship in Soybean Breeding and Genetics.Since joining UGA’s Department of Crop and Soil Sciences and Institute of Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics in 2012, Li has worked on the development of soybean varieties with high yield, enhanced quality, disease and pest resistance, herbicide tolerance and enhanced nutritional profile.The Georgia Seed Development Professorship in Soybean Breeding and Genetics was established with support from Georgia Seed Development (GSD) to enhance the field of plant breeding and genetics programs through professorships and research programs at the UGA CAES. “This funding helps enhance our research program, as well as helping with graduate education that will further the field of breeding and genetics. This support will help the program move forward and enhance the prestige and reputation of our program nationally and internationally,” Li said.While soybean is a small crop for the state of Georgia, it competes with corn as the top agricultural crop in the U.S., averaging 85 million acres per year. Since 2012, Li’s lab has developed 12 soybean cultivars designed for the Southeastern climate that have been released for agricultural use.In addition to developing soybean cultivars, Li says his lab is also focused on identifying genes for disease and pest resistance and for increased yield and nutritional content to incorporate into future cultivars and in preparing future scientists and plant breeders to continue the progress in soybean breeding and genetics. The lab currently includes one postdoctoral scientist, six doctoral students, one master’s student, three undergraduate students, seven research specialists and two visiting scholars.Prior to his current position at UGA, Li worked in the agricultural industry leading soybean discovery breeding and corn genotyping efforts for Monsanto Company and as a research scientist for DuPont Pioneer. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Soybean Molecular Breeding in the UGA Department of Crop and Soil Sciences in 2000 after earning his doctoral degree in plant breeding and genetics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.GSD is a nonprofit, self-supporting organization that provides economic support for the development of new varieties which provides business opportunities that help keep agriculture as Georgia’s number one industry. It was created in 1959 by the Georgia General Assembly to lead development of commercial plant materials in the state by promoting varieties developed and released by UGA researchers and was designated as a public, nonprofit corporation by the Georgia Legislature in 2008, allowing the organization to expand its scope.last_img read more

Cincinnati’s Kilpatrick primed for breakout season

first_imgNEW YORK — Mick Cronin knows Sean Kilpatrick will be playing in the NBA one day.“I think he’s been on some NBA Draft sites on the internet” Cronin said. “I’m not smart enough to find those. He’s like a son to me, but I think that day will come.”When it does, Cincinnati will have a massive void to fill.But first, Kilpatrick is looking to lead Cincinnati to a Big East championship after the team went to the Sweet 16 last season. With the losses of big man Yancy Gates and slasher Dion Dixon, the Bearcats will need even more production from Kilpatrick this season.The 6-foot-4 Kilpatrick led Cincinnati with 14.3 points per game last year and finished first in the Big East with 92 3-pointers. Now a member of the Preseason All-Big East First Team, he has transformed into the go-to playmaker for the Bearcats. Cronin said Kilpatrick’s relentless pursuit of excellence and his genuine passion for the game of basketball set him apart from other talented players.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Getting kids to play hard is much more difficult than fans would think,” Cronin said. “It’s difficult to find guys that compete at that level every play, every day, but that’s in his DNA. That’s who he is. He loves basketball.”Kilpatrick’s tenacity helped mold Cincinnati into a defensive-minded, scrappy team last season, as the Bearcats held 29 of their 37 opponents to fewer than 70 points. One of those games came in the Big East tournament against Syracuse, when Kilpatrick ate the Orange alive, finishing with 18 points on six 3s.Cronin said Kilpatrick has always been a knockdown shooter, but he has worked on other elements of his game to become a more complete player.For Cronin, Kilpatrick’s future will likely depend on his production this season.“Hopefully going pro is an option for him and that he has that kind of season,” Cronin said. “I don’t want to lose him, but I’m all for him having a great year.” Comments Published on October 18, 2012 at 2:07 am Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHass Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
