Episode 141: When It All Falls Down Under

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, January 26 2011 (10:30 PM - 12:00 AM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “Our Australian correspondents fill us in on Jimmy’s tour Down Under, Mickey rounds up the Irvine CA show, and Schmoe provides the latest about his nipples.  (Special guest: Jennifer.)

    Jimmy sure knows how to make an exit.  His return to Australia after twenty-two years made headlines, but probably not the way he would’ve wanted.
    Mike provides this week’s title.  Alternates include:

Gravity Storm
Last Man Standing
Stars Fell In Australia
Why the Things We Do
Survive
Beyond the End…Of the Stage
Face Plant For the Night
Sinko de Jimmyo
I Wish the Stage Could Last Forever
When the Stagefront Betrays Me
A Pirate Looks at Floory
Defining Gravity
Changes in Altitudes

Episode 140: We Go to ’11

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, January 12 2011 (10:00 PM - 11:30 PM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “For the first show of 2011, we look at the top stories of 2010 and the concert roundup is from Portland. (Special guest: Michele. Cameos by Jennifer and Lee.)

    00:21 - unfortunately I cannot find this cell phone commercial anywhere online (and can’t even remember what company it was for).
    02:28 - since the purpose of these entries is to share behind-the-scenes information, I might as well go ahead and admit her name is ████.
    06:33 - I’ve completely forgotten the story behind this, but Scott was referred to as “cherubic” by someone some time before recording, to Schmoe’s great delight
    09:28 - I guess you could say I tangentially got something Buffetty for Christmas.  I bought myself the John Lennon Signature Box, which includes Robert Greenidge playing on “Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)”. (A connection I had planned to make during our John Lennon episode but, once again, forgot to do.)
    09:36 - for Christmas, Mike bought all the podcast guys a bottle of M’ville spiced rum
    11:43 - Scott’s sound file got accidentally deleted; and this potion was all I was able to restore off the SD card, using some newly bought recovery software.
    13:36 - at the time, I was assuming our opening blather would not make the show
    13:40 - Ticket Web

    19:46 - Welcome to Fin Land artwork
    20:46 - Monty Python’s remastered Contractual Obligation Album and Spamalot CDs, from Amazon
    22:04 - no surprise, there is a 1-800-ASK-GARY website, but that still wouldn’t stop me from teasing Schmoe
    24:20 - Jimmy is referring to a pre-show interview, not a concert itself
    27:03 - a couple highlights that didn’t make the montage are the return of “Rhumba Man” and a beautiful medley of “Cowboy in the Jungle” and “Banana Republics”
