Episode 54: Sawings to Gnaw My Heart

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, October 24 2007 (9:30 PM - 11:00 PM), at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “There’s safety in numbers.  The whole coven joins together to brew up a terrifying Halloween episode.  Mike conjures himself across country and there’s even an attack by an undead Hud!  Horrifying lulls, scary song titles, jokes returning from the dead—but ... no GSM phone noise!

    Mu-wa-ha-ha-ha-haaa!   Mine is an evil laugh!   Welcome to our Halloween episode—uploaded just in time too.  This week’s episode required the use of two operating systems!  Part of it was edited under OS X 10.4 Tiger and the remainder was finished in OS X 10.5 Leopard.  Notice a difference?
    It would be nice to say our dedication to fixing the GSM noise problem caused Mike to fly up from Houston to join us in person, but it was actually just a coincidence.  The project Mike is working on needs to be done by the end of the year, so his employers gave him this week off to give him a break before “crunch time” starts.
    00:04 - I’m not really sure what happened to Greg, even though I was sitting across from him.  Schmoe moved his chair back and somehow Greg, sitting next to him, got hurt.  As far as the subsequent references, perhaps someone more knowledgeable will illuminate us in the comments.
    01:26 - “...in my brain” has become our new catchphrase evidently, thanks to Greg’s mention of “my brain’s iPod” in the Episode 51.  Hopefully you won’t get too sick of it, since you’ll be hearing this a lot
    02:59 - Jackson’s dot-Mac listserv group can be found at groups.mac.com/oneparticularph
    03:51 - Jimmy’s Detroit show for the Beach House tour was Tuesday, June 8 1999.  Here’s the setlist.
    04:00 - our original album art, before my niece created our cool logo, was photographed before Jimmy’s Tiki Time concert: Tuesday, June 24 2003.
    04:11 - the video exists in crappy old RealVideo, but maybe one day I’ll re-edit it to something better
    06:27 - Jimmy calls her Chicamauga in “False Echoes” and A Pirate Looks at Fifty, but the news stories call her Chiquimula
    08:17 - Mac McAnally news story 
    13:22 - the big screen TV got shut off (which Hud was facing), but the one above the bar was left on (which Greg, Schmoe, and Mike could see)
    18:27 - I’m really surprised I haven’t read any Headmaster jokes after the news broke.  And how does Michael Gambon feel with his photo accompanying every article?
    23:44 - despite the long edit time, I still managed to screw this section up.  I forgot to drop the recording in over the top of what I played live, but his has since been corrected.  This message was left on August 24 2007, from New Hampshire.
    24:22 - Greg switched positions, in the stereo spectrum, because he was returning from a bathroom break
    24:34 - more outtakes from Episode 52.  Aurora Rd was indeed the address of our SpringHill Marriott.  Hud is referring to our last Caseville weekend.
    26:38 - another of Greg’s many nicknames, and it has been for many many years
    28:08 - don’t get the joke?  Listen to Episode 53 from 13:18 to 15:49.  This will quite likely be another running gag too.
    28:08 - Count Scary, played by WOMC’s Tom Ryan, hosted TV specials for WDIV, the NBC affiliate in Detroit.  Scary was quite obviously based on the Count Floyd character played by Joe Flaherty of SCTV.
    34:50 - hey, I got the song title right!  But it’s a swinging cutlass, not a swinging scythe.
    35:27 - Hud mentions “The Wind Cries Mary” because he has borrowed Schmoe’s JB discography printout and is scanning song titles
    38:06 - I heard a story on NPR how houses in Detroit could be bought for only a couple thousand dollars, but I can’t find that story any more.  So I’ll link to this Detroit housing story instead.  Update: here’s a related posting, of Detroit houses for less than $250
    38:17 - and this, ladies and gentlemen, is how we decided Episode 55 will be our review of Hot Water.  Send your reviews and comments to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or leave a voice message at 1-774-221-7346.
    44:27 - “Isn’t this where we came in?” —Greg does his own inadvertent homage to The Wall.
    45:26 - early listeners got to hear an editing oversight here too
