    00:59 - “Did they just hit a home run?” The Tigers were playing the Nationals. Detroit won 4-3.
    04:10 - pretty Schmoe says “She just paused the juicebox” here
    04:33 - the disturbance went on a lot longer than this.  I saved you having to sit through it…and my humming
    06:34 - Madeira Beach | Johns Pass
    07:52 - Ricky T’s
    08:18 - Kirk Adams
    08:25 - Bus Fulla Monkeys
    08:32 - Mike’s brother, Jimmy Auquier
    09:00 - Conch Republic
    11:15 - what Mike sent…

Captain Jack, the music fan

    11:47 - Wild Time Caribbean
    12:28Tim McGraw performed at Pine Knob on Saturday, May 19.  (Link to Pitbull.)
    15:04 - the episode, “Olelo Pa’a (The Prmise)”, was broadcast April 15, and was the twentieth episode of the season three
    Here’s the April 16 email Schmoe mentions—but I think Mike’s confusion is because we did discuss the show together, but not on a recording night.  “You dudes remember to watch Hawaii Five-0 last night?  JB was back as Frank Bama.  Steve McGarrett and his attractive female accomplice meet up with Frank at a remote bar in S Korea just as our hero is slamming a shot of snake blood and rice wine.  Right after we see [its] preparation.  Yum.
    “This time the caper involves leading Steve and company to the border crossing between N and S Korea.  Unfortunately, Frank’s aircraft is nothing but wreckage now. Seems it was brought down by ‘honey buzzards’ (whatever those are).  So Frank drives them to the spot by jeep.  Jimmy looked old and crusty, certainly by design, and showed some decent acting chops.  Good stuff.”
    17:29 - Joe Dante, on IMDb
    19:26 - Breaking news: Jimmy announced on Radio M’ville, taking time from rehearsals for his Boston Strong concert appearance (Thursday, May 30), that the new album is coming out on August 16!
    21:14 - “Morris’s Nightmare” is edited for time.  Jimmy’s guitar is shrinking because he switched to a uke.  I’m still trying to make out Jimmy’s scat singing; some of it sounds obscene.  And I’m also wondering what the hell “in your heart and out your ears” means.
    25:10 - “Buffett to perform at Boston One Fund Benefit on May 30th”, from Buffett News | “Buffett to Perform at Boston Benefit”, from Buffett World
    25:19 - One Fund Boston
    25:39 - “Radio Margaritaville to broadcast Boston Strong benefit concert!”, from Buffett News | “Radio Margaritaville to Stream Boston Strong Concert Live”, from Buffett World
    25:55 - “Alpine Vally Show Confirmed for August 24th”, from Buffett News | “Alpine Valley Show is Confirmed for August”, from Buffett World
    26:44 - 93.7 KLBJ: The Rock of Austin
    27:57 - a time cut to a Volcano reference; then a time cut to a “Five:o’Clock Somewhere” intro
    33:12 - read Jimmy’s favorite story at the Twain Library
    35:05 - Hem Jeans, in Austin. (I could’ve sworn they were saying “Him”.)
    41:00 - and thank you for confirming how to say You Had to Be There.  Too bad Schmoe doesn’t listen to the podcast. 
    41:38 - Jimmy and Savannah on YouTube
    43:13 - from the intro to “Knee Deep”, during the Frisco show

World’s Dumbest

    I’m already regretting uploading this video, but I like sharing Buffett mentions in pop culture—even if it might reinforce certain stereotypes about Buffett fans by showing a few concertgoers at their worst.
    Here’s a clip from TruTV’s World’s Dumbest.  It originally aired November 20 2008 but I caught a rerun of it on May 10 (and finally saw it tonight).
    Enjoy at a distance ... and please, don’t be like these guys.

Blanks and Empty Spaces

    I admit it: I have been terribly remiss in maintaining show notes for the podcast.  In fact, we barely had any show notes for all of 2012 and almost half of 2011!  In trying to correct this, I discovered twenty-three episodes are still needing show notes, covering a span of almost two years.  Talk about slacking.
    I’m confessing this now, not only to beat myself up about it, but as preface to posting a two-year old video.  While going back to do the show notes for Episode 152, I was reminded how we did not have a tailgate video for 2011.  We’ve got parking lot videos for 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012 (as well as 1999 and 2000, and a 1998 roadtrip), but I never did post one for 2011—mainly because I had never gotten around to editing it.  I had my reasons, however.  The footage wasn’t so great, for one thing; it had been so hot that day I hadn’t gone around and shot as much as I’d wanted to.  Plus there’s an actual sweat stain on the camera lens, and I never noticed it all day since the sun was so bright.  I was so dissatisfied with the footage I kept avoiding working with it.
    But, in going through the episode again, I decided to go ahead with the edit anyway, just for the sake of it.  So, here’s the 2011 tailgate video, out of the archives…

    Update: That’s what happens when you impulsively start a video project.  I did the edit so fast I completely forgot to include my concert footage.  It wasn’t till I was doing the show notes for Episode 156 that I remembered the shot of the pirate ship on the lawn.  It’s been added in now, plus a few other shots, making the video forty-five seconds longer.
