Episode 61: Acrocashyto

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, February 13 2008 (10:00 PM - 12:00 AM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “Hud stays for most of the episode, Greg communicates via e-mail, and Mike actually
shows up in person.  This week’s album under review is 1994’s
Fruitcakes.  And, by popular demand, we present another chapter of Hud’s Hooker Korner.  (Guests: Jennifer and Jacob.  Occasional yawning and fidgeting: Mike’s and Schmoe’s kids.)

    This week’s show name was stolen from inspired by a parody title in an old Mad Magazine
    00:03 - although the door squeak is gone, Hud compensates for it imitating the noise throughout the show
    01:09 - it was my idea, in fact.  It seemed funny at the time.
    03:05 - ...and an angel gets its wings…
    04:09 - Schmoe refers to events at the end of Episode 55
    06:01 - some conversation which was cut for time creates an awkward transition here.  Schmoe now begins to talk about his plans for Good Friday which, juxtaposed to the previous talk about porn, make his mention of fish tacos particularly awkward.  I left this segment in anyway, just because of my conversation with Hud.
    06:53 - follow-up post on Thomas Crompton’s blog
    07:40 - photos from the Nimitz concert can be found here, here, here, here, and here
    07:47 - link to Jimmy’s interview on Bloomberg TV, via BuffettNews
    07:57 - Margaritaville Salsa
    08:20 - one of these days I’ll edit the video from that night and upload it
    08:31 - check the tour date pages at BuffettNews and BuffettWorld
    09:23 - link to “Oysters & Pearls” story, on BuffettWorld
    09:52 - CILCIA on shuttle?
    10:07 - news of the Asheville CIP closing.  The BuffettNews message board provides the follow-up info
    11:25 - photo album of our visit to the local CIP
    11:56 - audio from the Monk episode “Mr Monk Paints His Masterpiece”, from Season 6
    12:18 - note: audio clip slightly edited for time
    14:19 - audio from This Week in Tech #131: “G’Night Dad”.
    14:59 - Stephen Colbert is interviewing Rick Warren, author of A Purpose Driven Life, in this January 28 2008 installment of The Colbert Report
    16:41 - another inside joke
    17:33 - Drink of the Day was Amber Bock
    17:58 - my 1993 tour setlists page
    18:33 - information via the Google cache of alt.fan.jimmy-buffett
    21:44 - I know, it sounds like I contradicted myself.  I meant something more along the lines of “too much, all at once”
    21:53 - you can play along at home with this PDF of Greg’s Fruitcakes review
    24:17 - in January 1991, four Cuban refugees in wetsuits arrived at Jimmy’s Key West dock in an 18-foot boat.  Before the Coast Guard took them, Jimmy gave them a copies of Song(s) You Know By Heart to show them there was more to American music than Julio Iglesias and Gloria Estefan.
    29:31 - Here’s my little visual tribute to “Lone Palm”.  It’s a tableau I discovered on the beaches of Antigua: pre-sunset | post-sunset
    30:12 - “Apocalypso” is the song with the flute solo
    31:53 - I intended to include an audio snippet of that, from the July 19 1994 concert, but there was so much talking going on during that song it was tough to make out Mike and Hud in particular
    33:13 - and, through the magic of editing and pre-recording, Hud will do just that
    33:33 - a reference to our great G.E. / C.E. Smith controversy of Episode 32
    37:01 - a reference to the End Titles of our previous episode
    37:28 - “The Booklovers”, on the Promenade album by The Divine Comedy, is another song that mentions Flaubert.  As does “Living With Girls” from Doug Anthony Allstars.
    39:09 - “Quietly Making Noise” recorded July 4 1993
    41:23 - “In the Same Boat” recorded July 3 1993; the end was slightly edited for time
    41:40 - in my limited experience, French people you meet on the street were quite nice and friendly; it was French people on the job (as in, for instance, restaurants, trains, or post offices) who were the rude ones
    55:53 - RealName Jim and I refer to the “Homer Badman” episode of The Simpsons, Season 6
    57:25 - i’ve tried to dig this site up, but I cannot find a working link to include here

Episode 61B: Quietly Mocking Schmoe

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, February 13 2008 (10:00 PM - 12:00 AM), at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI

    But wait, there’s more!
    I guess having Mike in person again got us even more talkative.  Not only did we record our second longest show (as of this writing) but we talked long enough to record a bonus show.  Here are a few extras salvaged from the cutting room floor: Mike and Schmoe reminisce about being asked to work security for a recent concert by The Knack (they performed at Mike’s sister’s company Christmas party); and Schmoe continues our tradition of reviewing the Super Bowl halftime show.
    (Show title suggested by Texas Mike.  Other nominees include “Henchmen for the Night” and “With a Rebel Yell, He Mocked Schmoe, Schmoe, Schmoe”.)
    Listen now…
