Episode 166: All Night Long

Show Notes:
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:

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!

Episode 165: A Lot Off

Show Notes:
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:

Parrotwrist

    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.

Let the Games Begin

    Yeah, I heard there’s some worldwide sporting event going on, but for me tonight’s opening ceremonies were for tomorrow’s Comerica Park show and involved watching Jimmy Buffett and Mike Utley broadcast a video chat from backstage, on StageIt.com.
    Jimmy gave a spoiler about tomorrow’s setlist (about “All Night Long” specifically), played “Tin Cup Chalice” (by request) and “Boat Drinks” (for Hockeytown), and welcomed special guest Matt Hoggatt.
    Jimmy also gave away a Landshark surfboard and Frozen Concoction Makers to the highest bidder.  The show lasted about thirty-five minutes and was a very cool way to start this weekend’s festivities.
    Fins Up!

“Welcome…to Comerica Park,” says Richard Attenborough to Sam Neill

 

Jimmy reads my tweet!
