Episode 152: Kings of Somewhere Hot

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, July 27 2011 (10:00 PM - 11:30 PM) at Joe’s Prime Time, Brownstown MI
    “You knew we couldn’t stop at just one.  Mickey, Mike, and Schmoe continue recapping the 2011 Pine Knob show.  (Cameos by Nathan and Tori.)

    00:40 - despite making fun of it I ended up joining Foursquare half a month later
    01:16 - she’s referring to the Edirol R-09.  Now we use the Zoom H2.
    02:39 - Nate Dogg died March 15 2011
    04:52 - as with the last episode, here’s Mike’s car thermometer (on Instagram)
    07:10 - the footage I shot isn’t great, and I was planning on just using freeze-frames from it—but, what the heck, here’s a quickly edited tailgate video for you.  It pretty much covers what we talk about: our arrival, the electric fan, the generator, the unremitting sun, the truck with the pool, the big empty space in front of the M’ville booths, the cheeseburger cookies, the hot tequila, the lighted fan, even Mike doing the shark jaws.  Everything but the breast-glitter guy.  (Sorry.)


    08:19 - hey, why not—here’s something else from the archives…

Greg & Cathy.  August 9 1997.

(Other 1997 photos are in our Photo Gallery.)
    20:13 - photos of Schmoe with Len & Shelly—and the rest of our photos from the 2011 concert—are also in our Gallery
    37:49 - a Nathan Fillion quote, from the Firefly gag reel
    43:40 - we’ll get to that concert roundup in Episode 156, along with the full concert roundup for Pine Knob.
    47:48 - “Red Wiggler, the Cadillac of Worms”® is a sponsor mentioned in WKRP in Cincinnati.  (I made it harder on myself by calling them “Red Wriggler”.)
    48:16 - “Shark jaws” is the seldom-performed third step in the Fins Dance.  We discussed this back in Episode 63.
    55:27 - on May 30 2001, the Elevation Tour, at the Palace of Auburn Hills.  The website then made it worse by referring to us as “Detroit, IN”.
    57:40 - both these concert roundups were (are) part of the previous episode

Steambath and a Show

    It was the hottest day of the year!
    I’m still worn out from this year’s concert, but here are few notes about the day…
    Mike did a more elaborate tailgate than usual, hooking up an inverter to his car battery to power a fan and his Frozen Concoction Maker.  The parking lot was definitely a Barometer Soup and I’m not ashamed to admit I drank a lot more water than Landsharks or margaritas.  We didn’t do a lot of wandering around, clinging too much to the shade of our canopy, but I still plan on whipping up another tailgate video soon.  Watch this space.  Maybe.
    The crowd rallied enough to be loud and appreciative by show time; but the people around me were lame and sat down way too often.
    Even after sundown, it was still quite hot.  We recorded a podcast from the parking lot, but we sound so beat that it makes for some less than exciting listening.
    For now, here’s a batch of photos I took of the day, in our photo gallery.  A far cry from last year’s front row seats, but oh well…
    And, ultimately, as always, it was a pleasure and a hell of an evening.

Section RTC, Row MM, Seat 68
