Episode 50: Britches

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, September 12 2007 (8:00 PM - 11:30 PM), at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “A new show on Talk Like a Pirate Day? It’s like a dream come true!  Well, dream on, because this was recorded a week ago and took a full seven days for post-production.
Then it must be great, right?  Well, get somebody to pinch you because you’re dreaming too much!  Back at Zodiac, for the start of Season 4, Greg, Scott, Schmoe, and Mickey continue
discussing the box set, with a closer look at
Beaches.  And Mike joins them, but only by phone.  Guests include Jennifer and Lee.

    00:43 - Episode 17, Schmoe, Episode 17
    01:40 - the Detroit Shock won the WNBA Championship September 9 2006, Saturday, defeating the Sacramento Monarchs 80-75.
    02:28 - all this was already put to rest by Larry himself, three minutes into Episode 24
    03:40 - Buffett World didn’t forget the anniversary though
    04:07 - Jimmy’s CMA Live Event nomination (right column, middle)
    04:15 - Mac’s CMA Musician of the Year nomination (right column, bottom)
    04:43 - Mac’s Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame induction
    09:07 - during the pre-show, Savannah Jane interviewed rock writer Bill Flanagan who had this to say about Elo Ferrier…

    10:43 - Scott doesn’t know what’s good for him.  Pay no mind to his hesitations and go out and buy Firefly ASAP.
    10:50 - thanks to The Daily Show, “douchebag” has become the It word of 2007
    11:02 - no, Schmoe did not have an incredibly fast eighteen-second pee.  We just cut out all the boring stuff where we waited for him to return
    12:11 - regrettably, we are not at liberty to discuss our dealings with PodSchmoe.com at this time
    12:30 - this is what I researched
    15:21 - possibly another instance of Schmoe’s unique pronunciation style.  Most people pronounce “Crowell” to rhyme with “cowl”.  And since we brought it up, here’s the link for Rodney Crowell’s official site
    15:54 - Amazon link for Texas Troubadours
    16:35 - and that is where we got the idea to review Volcano for Episode 51
    19:14 - one mention of “The parties are all over” in the first verse, which seems more like Beaches than specifically Bars to me; and one mention of “the joint begins to jumpin” in the last verse.  So I guess it’s a tie.
    25:54 - that little noise is Greg checking his phone messages
    27:19 - for the record, in an August 21 e-mail (discussing a review of “Boats”) Schmoe suggested we:

1)  Review the new songs
2)  What songs would you take off that CD
3)  What songs would you put in its place
4)  What songs released SINCE the boxed set would you put on that disc.

I guess it’s the vagueness of point 3) that has us confused.  I saw it as meaning what songs on the box set fit better, but I guess Schmoe meant which songs not on the box set would fit better.
    29:55 - Schmoe is quick to point out this song, made famous by the Muppets, actually originated in an Italian softcore porno
    30:17 - the fourth track, of course
    33:28 - “ashphalt” is so frequently used you’d think it might be an alternate pronunciation.  But no, a check of online dictionaries suggest it’s just a wrong pronunciation.  Thus, you’d think Schmoe said it rather than Greg.
    33:39 - another word from our sponsor
    34:36 - yep, that’s me when I’m drunk.  ‘Cept I babble a lot more.
    35:11 - Lily Tomlin’s Ernestine
    35:59 - I was aiming for “The Stranger” from The Big Lebowski, but it sounds more like a combination of John Wayne and Yosemite Sam
    37:43 - you’ll have to forgive the dodgy audio levels and the occasional “mosquito noise”.  I was trying to set up the phone and the speaker and move the mics around while the call was already ongoing
    40:55 - as heard in Episode 37
    41:02 - which, as mentioned before, I recorded off radio
    44:54 - nope, that was on October 18
    45:21 - either Buffett is justified in ignoring us, since his concerts are apparently so forgettable; or, it proves we need him to show up here more than ever in order to remember him better
    45:59 - which you can hear below
    46:37 - actually, the Southeast Michigan Singles aren’t meeting at Zodiac this season.  As of September 29 they’ve chosen instead to meet at the Coliseum in Taylor every Wednesday for wallyball.

Episode 50B: Adventures in Best Buy-ing

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, September 12 2007 (11:00 PM - 11:30 PM), at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI

    As mentioned at the end of Episode 50, Scott had an entertaining anecdote for us about recent troubles buying a gadget from Best Buy.  It was too long to include within the show, so we offer it here instead as a separate sound file and blog page exclusive:

  1. I guess I will boycott that particular Best Buy.  The other store HELPED Scott.  This one screwed him.  My theory on this is the new store had by-the-book people because they were brought from other stores or were freshly trained.  The other store simply did what made sense to them.  Good for them.

    I cannot completely boycott Best Buy because I need my gadgets.  It’s all about me.

  2. Wow, Schmoe!  Apparently, you commented five days before this entry was even posted!

  3. I just wanted to verify the homework assignment.

    Pick the three songs that don’t belong on Beaches & pick three songs to replace them.

    Correct?

  4. Following is the original plan that we sort of follow for the boxed set discs.  We have done Boats and Beaches.  Episode 50 was Beaches.  We’d love feedback.  And the next episode homework is Volcano.  We will get back to the boxed set discs in time.

    1)  Review the new songs on the disc
    B)  What songs (3 or so) would you take off that CD?
    3)  What songs (3 or so) would you put in it’s place (from the time period the set covers)?
    D)  What songs released SINCE the boxed set would you put on that disc?
