Episode 113B: Pwned By a River

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, November 4 2009 (10:00 PM - 11:30 PM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “The boys analyze Mac McAnally’s new album (by way of his 9/28 Radio Margaritaville interview), Mickey has news and another concert roundup, Mike complains about his shoes, and Schmoe dredges up some old traumatic memories.

    I had second thoughts about using “pwned” in the title, since that term is so worn out and over-used…only to find out Schmoe and Mike had never seen it before
    04:00 - uh-oh!  A cat story?  Just eight hundred ninety subscribers to go…
    05:42 - Game 6 of the World Series was on TV, and the Yankees clinched the championship over the Phillies 7 to 3
    06:39 - hey! where’s the Double-Entendre Alarm?
    10:54 - MTV’s story on the Live Nation / Justin Timberlake tequila deal (and, for the hell of it, the official link to 901 tequila)
    12:07 - WMBF’s news story on the possibility of Jimmy coming to Myrtle Beach, with the original video clip (which was re-edited for the podcast)
    13:25 - Meeting of the Minds
    13:52 - Jackson Quigley’s new blog | buy JimmyDOTcom used from Amazon
    14:24 - Joystiq.com’s story on the “Margaritaville” patent, and the Patent Office’s listing itself
    17:42 - our Twitter page
    17:51 - Houston Chronicle‘s story on Kinky Friedman’s Pet Files
    18:24 - you can pretty much guess that, after making a point to correct Mr Utley, Jimmy will make the same mistake a few minutes later on stage…
    21:25 - Jimmy read messages off a lot wandering beach balls that night.  …And doesn’t he sound a little cruel making fun of Mr Utley?
    26:53 - Mac’s new album [at Amazon].  And for good measure Mac’s website.
    26:59 - we never explicitly say but our review is based more on Mac’s interview on Radio Margaritaville, where Steve Huntington played the entire album, than on the CD itself
    27:57 - Willis Alan Ramsey’s Wikipedia page.  Schmoe’s man-crush was first revealed in Episode 35
    29:11 - “Jimmy from Florida” made his first appearance at the Cincinnati pre-show interview, an audio clip of which is in Episode 107
    33:01 - yes, Jeff Hanna of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
    33:39 - “gospel piano”, in fact.  And the lyric I had in mind is “It seems to me, that the neediest people are the last ones to ask you for help”.  Or maybe it’s “It seems to me, that the happiest people are the first ones to offer their help”
    34:39 - Joe Maj mentioned this back in Episode 92 — and here’s another ringtone, this time from Schmoe
    35:31 - my apologies for all the chewing.  I didn’t think the mics would pick it up so well.
    38:45 - “Do you know what the definition of a hero is?  Someone who gets other people killed.” Serenity, written and directed by Joss Whedon (2005).  Buy it.
    39:07 - the line is “The nature of a hero requires a leap of faith”.  I’m not sure where I got “the mark of a hero”.  Maybe from some commercial.  But I still think the whole “Find out what you’re made of / When it’s your time to say ‘You first’” motif really only works best in the first instance [emphasis mine].
    44:52 - it seems how I described myself makes it seem I can’t be satisfied too, but I guess what I mean is a comparison between someone who’s always striving for something better, in expectation of the next upgrade, compared to someone who gets handed the best of everything and finds fault with it.  But even that description seems too fine a point.
    46:02 - I’m confusing it with Jimmy’s new album
    47:01 - then why not buy it on iTunes?
    48:38 - Jennifer really did accidentally call our beers “Landscape” instead of “Landshark”.  Unfortunately this happened before we started recording.

  1. I want it clear that I am way cooler than Mike.  I know the word “pwned” enough to realize it is passe.  But does that make me more geeky than Mike?

  2. Yes.  Yes it does.
