    Listener Jon clued us in, back on Monday, that the comic strip Dustin was doing a whole, week-long series on parrotheads.  Or more specifically, middle-aged parrotheads.  Here are all five panels (from July 26 to July 30).
    Update: we uploaded too quickly, forgetting about the Saturday strip.  Here’s the newly-corrected, complete run:

    As a middle-aged parrothead, I frankly don’t see the humor in this.

Episode 132B: My Documents

Show Notes:
    “Mickey’s not giving up yet.  He’s got two more concert roundups, to round out the third leg of the tour, plus last week’s Fruitcake on the Radio, and Munchcast’s discussion of margaritas and ‘Margaritaville’.

    05:39 - not only was it cool to hear Jimmy “Mackinac Island” – my favorite island – but he pronounced it correctly too!
    05:44 - “Kalama-zoo-zoo-zoo” is, I suppose, a reference to Glenn Miller’s recording of “I Got a Gal in Kalamazoo”
    08:15 - the Jimmy/Bret Michaels duet was released as an iTunes single on July 13.
    09:43 - Jimmy and Mike have gotten a LOT of mileage out of this material over the years
    14:05 - left in because Jimmy got the album wrong
    16:41 - Episode 130
    16:55 - Fruitcake on the Radio Steve Ross from Bloomfield Hills MI
    17:58 - Munchcast #85, with Leo Laporte and Cammy Blackstone. Visit the website, listen to the episode, or watch the episode.
    29:20 - and you thought we rambled and were unprepared!

Episode 132A: My Documents

Show Notes:
    “Mickey hijacks the podcast to share files off his hard drive.  Includes three concert roundups, some audio interviews, and the rest of our post-concert parking lot roundtable from Pine Knob.  (Cameos by Patti, Scott, Mike, and Jacob.)

    I know, I know.  It’s time we got back to podcasting…
    At 27:10, that’s not an edit, that’s Jimmy jumping the gun.
    And at 29:04, those false starts were part of the concert.
    31:20 - Anderson Cooper’s interview with Jimmy Buffett: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 (from
    Jimmy ruffled a few feathers after an interview with the Associated Press.  Said Jimmy, “To me it was more about eight years of bad policy before [Obama] got there that let this happen. It was Dracula running the blood bank in terms of oil and leases.”  The hosts of Fox & Friends were outraged that Jimmy called George W Bush a “Dracula”, even though Jimmy didn’t, and I’m not even sure what they think it means.  We tried to bring this up during our recordings but we couldn’t muster the ire that seems to come so readily to the folks at Fox News.
    37:48 - “Video Interview with Jimmy”, via Buffett World
    43:44 - you can hear Jimmy’s comments about the brassiere at the beginning of the next episode
