Episode 49: Bitch Fest on the Moon

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, August 29 2007 (9:30 PM - 11:30 PM), at Joe’s Prime Time Pub, Gibraltar MI
    “Season 3 finishes with our look at 1999’s Beach House on the Moon.  Guests include Rob, Brooke, Christina, and Elise.

    Rob is with us almost every week, for FSGL golf and for dinner, but this is the first time he’s hung around to join us in the back room.
    Milky the Clown was the spokesclown for Twin Pines Dairy, back in the ’50s.
    Pay no attention to the discrepancies with Amazon’s Live in Anguilla listing.  It’s all been settled since then.
    Link for Voodoo Café.
    Link for Moses Horowitz, pending.
    Link for Danica McKellar.
    For some reason Schmoe bases his entire “Spending Money” review on the one “It’s a dang fool husband doesn’t spring for his wife” line.
    “Breathe the air that we’ve blown you” is a quote from The Who’s “The Punk & The Godfather” from Quadrophenia.

Episode 48: Bloats

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, August 22 2007 (9:30 PM - 10:30 PM), at Joe’s Prime Time Pub, Gibraltar MI
    “In which the gang reminisces about visiting Cheeseburger in Paradise, Schmoe & Mickey must defend their clandestine love of stargazing, and the gang is duty-bound to take a closer look at disc one of JB’s Boxed Set.  Guests: DJ, Jacob, and Christina.

    I was getting tired of all the audible thumping every time someone emphatically taps the table.  I switched to different mics, and now they pick rumblings and thumpings every time someone shifts in their chair!  I tried to EQ the sound to lessen the bass, but you’ll probably still hear of thumping and rumbling regardless.  My apologies if it gets on your nerves (as it does mine).  Hopefully we can get this sorted out next time.  And now, on to the show notes:
    00:00 - get your podcast on the PodSchmoe Podcasting Network
    00:21 - Scott’s podcast is called “Southgate Tech Tip of the Week”
    01:27 - the high was 80°F.  The high temperature Monday was 67°F.
    02:38 - too lazy to look up our first mention of the Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant, but I know it was back at Zodiac
    02:49 - map to Cheeseburger in Paradise
    03:51 - pineapple was a popular ingredient in he Cheeseburger in Caseville contest; hence the comment.
    04:21 - play the home game with a Cheeseburger in Paradise menu
    06:54 - Sailor Jerry rum
    07:17 - Voodoo Café
    08:09 - WAOTNC Photo Gallery
    08:31 - Christina had trouble opening my beer bottle, when she brought it.  She couldn’t get a grip on the cap, since Buds are notoriously painful to open.  Instead, she bent down to try using the hem of her skirt.  This piqued everyone’s attention, and, feeling suddenly bashful, she turned her back to us—now facing DJ—as she continued to twist the cap off with her skirt
    09:10 - Is Schmoe going to hell?  What about you?
    09:40 - this just in: the Amazon pre-order page now shows only a DVD instead of a CD/DVD combo!
    09:53 - Mailboat Records
    10:15 - Buffett News’s Swine Not? page
    11:15 - another running gag, which I’m told originated from earlier in the day.  Greg was talking about softball feats from his youth, to impress Jacob, and allegedly likened himself to baseball great Rod Carew.  This led to comments such as “When I think of Rod Carew, I think of Greg” (or vice versa?), which inevitably got extrapolated to all sorts of ridiculous extremes
    11:22 - Ross School
    11:33 - Stephen Talkhouse
    12:04 - no, he did not show up
    12:12 - Show Notes blog (but you already knew that ... right?!)
    13:40 - the mini podcasts from our Caseville visit
    13:48 - apparently Hud greatly enjoy finding out Schmoe had brought out a pillow and blankets during our stargazing tryst
    14:06 - Wikipedia’s Perseid link
    16:25 - Amazon says Bob Marley’s Songs of Freedom box set came out October 6 1992
    16:33 - Amazon says James Brown’s Star Time box set came out May 7 1991
    18:34 - Amazon says Before the Beach came out May 25 1993
    19:13 - Evangeline at
    19:45 - Greg’s top ten
    19:48 - Wikipedia’s Dennis Connor page
    20:03 - still looking for a video clip
    20:41 - such as “Turning Around” from Summer Rental or “Purple People Eater” from Contact
    24:07 - perhaps I was overly polite in keeping my silence, but I feel compelled to point out here I completely disagree
    25:46 - track from the Planete Zouk compilation
    30:03 - Scott’s excuse has already been used in Episodes 46 and 47
    30:33 - of course the lyric Schmoe wanted to recite is “I’ve got to head this boat south pretty soon”
    32:25 - nice try with Greg trying to escape from discussing Ballads, but clearly, after Episode 40, there’s no way we’d let him get away with it
    33:00 - Christina loses her cool when noticing Greg videoing her on his LG phone
    36:05 - it was Greg, it was Greg, it was all Greg
    36:17 - cf. 11:15

Which Way Do I Steer?

    The gang met up last Saturday (August 18) to finally visit Cheeseburger in Paradise, in Sterling Heights (by Lakeside Mall).  Not only did we get a chance to dine on cheeseburgers and popcorn shrimp, and sample the house brand Island Lager, but we got to see Mike’s brother’s side project Voodoo Café.  You know, Mike’s brother Jimmy, right?  He sings our theme song.
    No podcast was recorded, but Mickey (as always) documented the event, and the photos are online in our WAOTNC Photo Gallery.

Heaven on Earth

Episode 47: How’s the Bored Listener?

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, August 8 2007 (9:30 PM - 11:00 PM), at Joe’s Prime Time Pub, Gibraltar MI
    “It might not be our longest, but, boy, does it feel like it!  Belated, long-awaited, jam-packed, if not over-stuffed, with goodness, we discuss the last two concerts and some recent online Buffett mentions, and we review Riddles in the Sand.  Guests: DJ, Listener Ed, and Christina.

    04:58 - Usher’s wedding
    05:23 - the actual lyric is “And you may tell yourself / This is not my beautiful wife!” as well as “And you may tell yourself / My God!...What have I done?”
    06:21 - Greetings to the Brysnicki family!
    10:34 - A lesson for the kids: Don’t drink and orbit
    12:28 - Listener Ed’s website 
    12:59 - third song, actually
    15:07 - hear the entire Fresh Air interview on  [Link to her album on iTunes]
    22:51 - Scott is evidently too young to remember that this was a calculated marketing ploy by MCA to attract a country western audience
    22:31 - Urban Cowboy was released in 1980
    24:09 - Jane Slagsvol
    26:31 - I have a couple clips in my old TV Room
    26:48 - iTunes link to “Who’s the Blonde Stranger?” video
    35:06 - I have evidence that proves otherwise
    35:30 - I vaguely recall seeing the “One Particular Harbour” video between movies on some cable pay channels, but this still might have been after we saw the “Who’s the Blonde Stranger” video.  I really thought I was uncovering gold reminiscing about those old videos.  Too bad I didn’t remember they’re all on the Tales from Margaritavision VHS tape
    40:23 - Rhonda Coullet
    45:05 - an Oliver Hardy quote from Way Out West

Caseville 2007

    Episode 47 was recorded last Wednesday, but it might not be uploaded till Sunday or Monday.
    The boys are a bit pre-occupied right now, seeing as they’ve gone up to Caseville again for this year’s Cheeseburger Festival!

M-53 North

Schmoe enjoys a Landshark and another Riverside Roadhouse Spicy Burger

    As we said, we had the same waitress on our return visit.  You can compare this picture with last year’s.

Our favorite waitress

    And a Show Notes Blog exclusive.  We were too busy eating and drinking to shoot a proper video documentary, so here’s a bonus podcast featuring Schmoe and me watching the Perseid meteor shower:

    Day 2: we head back into town, go to the official store for souvenirs, get gumbo for brunch, meet Mike at the Riverside Roadhouse for lunch, spend some time at the beach, go to Lefty’s Diner & Drive-In for this year’s winning cheeseburger, and then go to the amphitheater to watch Air Margaritaville.  Unlike yesterday, I mainly shot video…and I think I need to buy another hard drive before I can start importing the footage for editing.
    Until then, here’s another Show Notes Blog exclusive podcast…

    P.S.: we’ve returned from our Caseville weekend, but I’m still not sure when Episode 47 will be ready to go up.
