Episode 24: ¡Turquila!

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, November 15 2006, (9:00 PM - 11:00 PM) at the Zodiac Racquet Club in Southgate MI
    “Another FourCast: holiday dining tips, and favorite Fingers solo, Buffett shirt, and Buffett-influenced song. With special guests Hud, Larry, and Jennifer. Happy Thanksgiving!

    It’s a Thanksgiving miracle.  The oft-mentioned Hud finally joins us for some choice comments.  Also, Larry, proprietor of Zodiac Racquet Club, makes a couple appearances.  The gang discusses the latest four questions (itemized in the preceding blog entry) while discussing the latest Buffett news and making fun of each other.
    There will not be a show next week, because of the holiday, but we’ll be recording again on the 29th (...I think).  Scott requested going back to doing album reviews, and I suggested Floridays.  Feel free to send your own reviews to podcast at or send us an audio message at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or via Skype at 1-774-221-7346 or shortfatguyonline.
    11/28 Update: unfortunately, some household matters are preventing us from all meeting up this week.  We’ll be recording next week instead.  Thanks for your patience.

This Week’s Assignment

    We will podcast this week (11/15).  Then we will take at least one week off for the holiday.  That means, this week is our Very Special Thanksgiving Episode™.  As always, there is homework.
    Another FourCast:

  1)  Idea to add just a bit of Buffetty-ness, if at all, to your Thanksgiving holiday
  2)  Favorite Fingers solo of all time
  3)  Favorite Buffett clothing (of your own, not Jimmy’s wardrobe)
  4)  Favorite songs by other artists that mention Buffett

    Send your responses to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), Skype us at shortfatguyonline, leave us a voice mail message at 1-774-221-7346, or send us audio feedback at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Episode 23: Covers Charge

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, November 8 2006, (9:30 PM - 11:00 PM) at the Zodiac Racquet Club in Southgate MI
    “Scott’s back, in time for another FourCast: favorite lyric, live song, and covers (song or art). Plus talk of a Buffetty Thanksgiving.

    Sorry about the delay in getting this week’s podcast up.  I was busy celebrating my birthday and getting the place ready for the arrival of my big-ass TV.
    The boys are back from their Roger Clyne break (photos soon come, maybe?) and even Scott returns for tonight’s show.
    For those whose interest was piqued by my live song descriptions, you can hear those very recordings at my Buffett setlists page.  Or get them here: specifically, “Chanson Pour Les Petits Enfants” and “He Went to Paris”.  One song I completely failed to mention was when Jimmy sang “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” at Buckeye Lake following a drenching torrential all-day rain.  It was most notable for containing the new verse

        So here we are in Central Ohio
        On a very rain night.
        Well we got ourselves a party,
        What a wonderful sight.

        We’re going to do it all this evening.
        We’re going to do it till we’re dead.
        So we’d just like to thank each and every one of you
        Crazy fucking Parrot Heads!

    Sorry about them being in RealAudio, but that was the thing back when I made those pages.  I discussed “Livingson Saturday Night” back in August.
    Scott and Joe and Mike were at the Roger Clyne concert on November 2, at The Magic Bag.  They enjoyed the concert a great deal and got to meet the band after the show.  Some of their photos were added to the Gallery, but the stories behind these photos were edited out of this week’s podcast.  Instead, I’ll add them here as a bonus audio file.  (The audio isn’t the greatest since I was only just setting the mics up.  You can hear Jennifer, our waitress, in the background, admiring the desktop wallpaper on Scott’s laptop.)

    P.S.: I don’t recall the Buffett news sites mentioning this, but “Here We Are” is finally available as a downloadable single (in stereo!) from iTunes.  [iTunes link]   Evidently this was announced on Mailboat Records a week ago but I only discovered it last night.
