Episode 51: Chanson des Abrutis Bavards

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, September 26 2007 (9:30 PM - 11:30 PM), at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “Greg and Scott are no-shows, but Mike joins Mickey and Schmoe via speakerphone to review Volcano and to pay tribute to Episode 11.  Guests: Lee and, just barely, Jennifer.

    00:11 - Autumn 2007 began Sunday, September 23, 5:51 AM (EDT)
    02:13 - not all of Canada, just the Canadians I deal with at work
    02:21 - evidently, on the day of our recording, a US dollar was worth $1.0039 Canadian.  And also on this day, the US dollar hit a new low against the Euro.  One US dollar was worth 0.707 EUR.
    02:44 - to hell with putting clips in context!
    04:00 - you can read all the “Glory Days” complaints during the “live commenting” on BuffettNews
    05:21 - here’s an image of what we’re talking about
    05:49 - an RCPM related story best explained in the comments ... right?
    07:38 - as discussed in Episode 32
    09:23 - nostalgia for LPs, I mean, not scratchy playback
    09:28 - and no Buffett LPs, I mean.  I’ve got plenty of LPs, believe me; just not any Buffett LPs
    11:12 - I never knew Schmoe was so determined to talk about Mike’s cutoffs
    12:10 - Gary is Greg’s older brother.  (Should I have mentioned this?)
    14:55 - I thought I saw this same Chet Flippo article online somewhere, but the best I can find is this reference to it in the Steve Eng book (via Google Books)
    15:54 - Greg’s Word DOC [PDF]
    17:15 - yep, One Particular Harbour in 1983.  BuffettWorld confirms it
    19:12 - well, you guys know the “Fins to the left, fins to the right” part.  But the third step in the Fins Dane is to put your left fist in your right armpit and your fist over your left shoulder.  Then move your elbows apart, like a giant shark mouth.  (I really wish I could do technical drawings.)   We’re not making this up either.  Jimmy explained the Fins Dance back in the 70s
    22:00 - link to Episode 11
    22:11 - it just so happens Greg still possesses this cassette tape, and that we do shout a greeting between “Fins” and “Volcano”.  Here is an excerpt from that actual cassette:

    22:19 - link to Episode 11
    22:56 - hey Greg, it’s “stylus” [stī-ləs]
    23:27 - Landshark listing in Wikipedia
    24:49 - remora listing in Wikipedia
    25:46 - no podcast next week, as most of us will be seeing Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers on Thursday, October 4 and in Cleveland on October 5.  Look for other upcoming shows at the AZ Peacemakers site
    25:57 - buy Roger Clyne’s “D-Back Swing” at the Peacemakers’ new Digital Downloads site.  The WAOTNC boys also recommend The Whole Enchilada.  Eight CDs for fifty bucks!
    30:42 - James Taylor’s brothers are named Alex, Livingston, and Hugh.  He also has a sister named Kate.
    31:06 - “Treat Her Like a Lady” is available at the bottom of my my 2000 setlist page
    31:45 - do most people think “Treat Her Like a Lady” is about a ship or about the ocean?  Chime in in the comments
    32:42 - Schmoe’s daughter Kate is infatuated with horses
    33:56 - let’s see how long it takes Margaritaville.com to fix their Volcano track list
    34:35 - “...respectively”
    35:49 - a reference of course to our recent Caseville mini-podcasts
    36:03 - yep the LP lyrics say “Princess Lia”
    36:50 - once again, here’s an example of what Greg’s talking about, right off his cassette.  Schmoe’s recording style really is a mood-killer:

    38:29 - link to my 1998 setlist page
    40:38 - Schmoe’s gone Hollywood.  He’s talking about himself in the third person.
    47:30 - link to Episode 11
    48:40 - dang it, I forgot to add rimshots
    49:49 - no, actually it’s Episode 41
