    02:43 - apparently this is the theme music for Facebook’s Farm Club from Scott’s MacBook (and, 02:58: that’s a tiny snippet of “Rock Me Amadeus”, requested by Jennifer, avoided by me).

Guinea Pigging

    The Boston Globe interviewed Jimmy, in advance of his two Mansfield shows (Thursday and Saturday).  The interview is available at, and midway through he mentions us northcoasters.

Q. How has the recession affected your tour?  Is this the year the bubble bursts and some people will not come to see you?

A. No, we’re doing great.  Thank God there are people out there who like what we’re doing.  They haven’t put us on a list of things they’re not going to do because of the economy.  This is their vacation and they’re not going to give it up.  They may not go to Florida or buy a new car, but they won’t miss our show.  I wanted to find out right away, so we went on sale early with a Detroit show—they’ve been as hard hit as anywhere—and it sold out in 20 minutes.  I’m very grateful.

    Happy to be your test kitchen, Jimmy.

Summerzcool Art Projects

    We’re used to seeing Buffett references in “Arlo & Janis”, but we never expected him to show up in, of all things, “Blondie”!
    This is the strip from Friday, June 12.

What makes Blondie stranger?

    Also, Buffett World calls attention to an iPhone app designed for Jimmy Buffett fans and concertgoers.  It’s called iEncore and is available in the iTunes App Store [link opens iTunes].

FIns to the future

    We’ve tried to keep tabs on other Buffett-inspired and -related apps, check out the ever-growing list here.
    Update: here’s another multimedia mention, from one podcast to another.  The guys of the 24 Cast are now doing a podcast called The Complete Guide to Everything*.  Their latest episode is about “Hamburgers” which leads to an extended segment on Jimmy Buffett.  The clip is too long to include in one of our shows, so we’ll just link to the episode.  The Buffett segment is 7:10 in and runs over four minutes (with a callback at 13:15).  [Added 6/16]

Someone at TRMS is a Parrothead

    When worlds collide.  All three “Weak in Review” stories from Friday’s Rachel Maddow Show have a remarkable connection to our podcast.

    They used Buffett music for the first two stories and then, for good measure, wrapped up with a Jonas story just for Scott and Schmoe!  Could Kent Jones be one of our listeners?  (Or would that mean he’s weak?)
    Actually, this is not the first time Buffett music has appeared in The Rachel Maddow Show....
