Comerica Park Parrothead Tailgate 2013

    At last, we’ve edited last year’s video footage for this little snapshot of tailgating outside the 2013 concert at Comerica Park, Detroit MI.  Recorded Saturday, July 20, you can see many of the things we discussed in Episodes 178 and 179: our steak and lobster lunch, the limo ride, drunk chicks, the glitter stand, the confetti cannon, and the Jackson Browne fan next to Mike’s wife. 

    Update (May 3): I discovered an unfortunate flash cut in the video, which I’ve removed.  I also tweaked a couple other shots, and the above video has been replaced with the revised one.
    Also, the video is also available on our Vimeo page.  I haven’t decided if it looks better or not, but you can judge for yourself below:

    My photos from the Detroit concert are over on Flickr.  Schmoe has my camcorder (as planned) so I won’t have a tailgate video for a while.  And, if you missed it, here are the photos I uploaded to Instagram during the day yesterday.

    P.S.: by the way, has some great fan-photos from the show.  It’s fun to see the concert from so many different angles.

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.

Episode 168: A Four Story Slide

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, November 7 2012 (10:30 PM - 12:00 AM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “Listener Ed’s in-depth Alpine Valley review plus concert roundups from the other three shows from this leg of the tour (Camden, Jones Beach, Bristow).  (Guests: JoeMaj and Annie.)

    00:00 - Daily Show clip from November 6.
    01:17 - the title track (courtesy of someone’s home movies):

    08:06 - Want to read along with us?  Here’s the document he sent us…


  Listener Ed's 2012 Alpine Valley Review by WAOTNC

    13:00 - ummm, no ( you can hear at 27:34)
    14:16 - due to a conversion glitch in going from a DOC file to a TXT file, double quotation marks showed up as ì or î, apostrophes showed up as í, and ellipses showed up Ö.  Mike and I are reading off the DOC on my iPad; but Schmoe is stuck reading the plain text version emailed to his phone.
    14:49 - actually this is due to the 12-string guitar change for “Son of a Son of a Sailor”
    23:14 - It was the same day as the concert.  “Armstrong died in Cincinnati, Ohio, on August 25, 2012, at the age of 82, after complications from coronary artery bypass surgery.” (From Wikipedia.)
    30:29 - “shows”; not “songs”, “shows
    45:55 - as heard at 05:21
    47:30 - First 30 Rock clip, featuring Bryan Cranston, from “Governor Dunstan”, broadcast October 11.
    48:34 - Second 30 Rock clip from “Unwindulax”, broadcast October 25.  The song is not the best quality, but it was ripped from the rear surround channels.

    “More stories from Comerica Park, an in-depth discussion of the Detroit setlist, and this year’s (brief) tailgate podcast. (Cameo by Annie [and Sarah].)

    03:51 - track one on Pat Benatar’s Seven the Hard Way
    04:12 - Mike’s off-key “Fire away” is deliberate.  He’s making fun of an old and tone-deaf college room mate.
    06:30 - again, my concert and tailgate photos are at Flickr
    10:00 - and again, the concert and tailgate video was posted earlier
    20:33 - it’s not from our concert, but here’s “CILCIA” video roll from Cincinnati
    20:48 - I guess I bored Annie enough that she put her head down and took a nap
    23:15 - check for yourself
    26:22 - not sure why I never noticed that before since this was not the first time they’d done it
    29:54 - Little Caesar’s (a non-paid non-commercial non-endorsement)
    32:49 - my videos of both performances were posted below: Lionel’s and Jimmy’s.  An official video from that night is also available at iTunes.
    36:15 - oh me of little faith.  The Tigers did get into the World Series this year …and got shutout in four games
    36:57 - he did it three shows later, in Atlantic City (August 4 2012)
    43:50 - as seen on the Margarillas Facebook page:

Me want!

    44:18 - Cheli’s Chili, Detroit
    48:46 - using the Stream to Me app, which has been obsoleted now that iCloud is available (so they say)
    54:18 - no, why would Schmoe have seen it.  It was only posted on his own website two weeks ago!
