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.

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…

Episode 168: A Four Story Slide
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…
13:00 - ummm, no (...as 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.

Episode 166: All Night Long
Recorded Wednesday, August 22 2012 (10:00 PM - 11:00 PM) at Joe’s Prime Time, Brownstown MI
“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:
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!

Episode 165: A Lot Off
Recorded Wednesday, August 8 2012 (10:00 PM - 11:30 PM) at Joe’s Prime Time, Brownstown MI
“Our big Detroit concert podcast! So big it had to be split into two parts! (Cameo by Hud.)”
Photos of the day are at Flickr.
My video of the tailgating is at YouTube.
06:35 - “second lowest”: second highest of course. Maybe I meant to say “next lowest”
07:48 - my tweet (previously posted below). By the way, Jimmy, the baseball stadium is “Co-mer-ica” Park (named after Comerica bank) and the football stadium is Ford Field.
19:37 - now I’m showing my own ignorance (...again). I never put steak sauce on a burger so I have always assumed, till just this moment, that Jimmy’s mention of “Heinz 57” had to be as ketchup for those “french fried potatoes” of his. (And despite Jimmy talking about it at length during the Episode 153 concert roundup that I edited.)
21:44 - from Listener Wally’s Facebook page:
27:29 - NERD! (It’s a reference to the Doctor Who Series 6 episode “The Wedding of River Song”.)
27:29 - ex-or-bi-tant ... not, “sorbet”
37:50 - Google says the distance is 37 minutes (at 30.7 miles)
39:20 - here’s the link to the Flickr set again; and here’s a photo of the limo gang and a photo of the infamous pitcher (and ice balls)
40:05 - Arthur and the limo
40:43 - here’s the tailgate video link again
42:28 - Annie is convinced tapping one’s fingertips together is a “Smithers” rather than a “Mr Burns”
52:31 - I heard this part first, thinking he’d only barely noticed my tweet. It wasn’t till watching my recording later on that I found out he’d seen it twice.
