Episode 84: Lots of Friends With the Same Old Answers

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, September 17 2008 (9:00 PM - 11:30 PM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “The gang finally sits down for their Last Mango in Paris review. With his Houston hotel flooded following Hurricane Ike, Mike is still in town and was able to join us in person. Greg and Scott join Schmoe and Mickey as well, for a raucous and rambling discussion just like
old times. (Special guest: Jennifer.)


    Sorry about all the rattling, evident throughout the background of this episode.  I think it's coming from the overhead heating register.
    00:57 - three YouTube videos of Buffett at the Herman Wouk tribute
    01:28 - Surfer's Healing benefit
    02:34 - Nod to the Storyteller, from Mailboat Records
    04:30 - as mentioned in Episode 19
    05:33 - originating in Episode 20
    08:04 - I am incorrect. All the lyrics and liner notes are duplicated, but one side of the inner sleeve has a black and white photo which is not included with the CD.  And, courtesy of Buffett World, here's the back cover I'm talking about.
    09:28 - I meant to add that CDs came in "longboxes" so that store owners could re-purpose their cassette racks to display them
    11:53 - thanks to TV's David Simon, I believe the word I was trying to come up with is "epigram"
    13:07 - sorry about the crosstalk, but, if I may make a suggestion, the conversation on the right is more interesting
    14:07 - make note of this.  I can guarantee we'll be referring to it a lot.
    14:45 - it's almost as if...wait for it..."Math Suks". Oh, the irony
    18:10 - the Steve Goodman: Facing the Music book, at Amazon
    22:53 - I believe we are confused here.  Buffett played the Palace twice, and I think Scott is referring to Buffett's second appearance (July 1 1990) while the rest of us are thinking of the first (June 30 1989).
    24:08 - here's a chance for my own North Coast Flip Flop™; and since no one called me on it, I'll state it here.  I made my pronouncement before giving the album a full and proper listen, and, now having done so, I can say that "If the Phone Doesn't Ring It's Me" sounds a heck of a lot more dated that I remember.  It's those danged 80s drums. However, two songs which do manage to still sound contemporary are "Last Mango in Paris" and "Jolly Mon Sing".  So I take back what I said.
    35:39 - Jonathan Edwards
    38:33 - normally I excise these conversations that spiral into nowhere.  But this one fascinates me.  It's such a cluster, with everybody agreeing yet still stating contradictory things.  And I thought I was the one who drank the most.
    42:08 - that is, the part of the song where they sing "Pennsylvania six five oh-oh-oh"
    42:13 - yikes, what an edit. And what a song choice.  Maybe the bar patrons are brushing up on their CPR skills

  1. I think the word you are searching for is “abstract” .. The first Noun definition at http://www.answers.com/abstract

    But I haven’t gotten to the end yet (shamefully I was away last week and only downloaded this morning..), so you may have figured that out already.
