It's Late, I'm Tired, This is What I Got

Well, that was my first Jimmy Buffet concert and, as a casual listener at best, I enjoyed the hell out of it. Believe it or not, it only occurred to me to moblog the thing as we were walking up to the Forum, and I only had a partial charge on my phone, hence the brevity of the collection.

That bright blob in front of the Jumbotron is a blowup shark, 30 feet long and powered by propellors, like a little blimp. It went well with the 40K people holding their hands above their heads and "sharking to the left, sharking to the right" during the encore. The spontaneous conga line was a nice touch, too.

Only minor spliffage in evidence, and we never could figure out who the perp was. That was some skillfully done toking. Alcohol flowed freely, of course, with beers the size of your head for $9 and margaritas the size of those dixie cups you rinse with at the dentist's office for $6.

The music selection was excellent, a good mix of oldies and some quite good unreleased stuff that's coming out on the License to Chill album in July. The 60s-esque version of "Why Don't We Get Drunk and Screw" was a treat, I used to have a computer that would play a snip of that when shutting down. "Brown Eyed Girl", "Pencil Thin Mustache" and "Jamaica Mistaka" were all great fun. This show kicked off the License to Chill summer tour, if you have the means, I highly recommend catching a future date.

I only have one regret...that the bleached cow who decided to stand her narrow, skanky ass in front of us, and refused to even acknowledge the fact that we were yelling "MOVE YOU FUCKING IDIOT" didn't get my strawberry zinfandel down the back of her K-Mart Jaclyn Smith collection pants. But then we would have been thrown out and missed Margaritaville, the blowup shark, conga line, etc. etc.

Still. It would've been something to tell the kids about. Y'know, MUCH later.

Ya really haven't seen Buffett until you've seen him outdoors, and witnessed the ingenuity and sophistication of the tailgating that preceeds the concert. I've seen many, many shows, and the things people come up for tailgating activities can defy explanation.

Like vibrator races... place your bets, place your bets!

I have never been to a bad Buffett concert, and I've been to a bunch.

I'm glad you had a good time.

Cool... I didn't know you were still moblogging. I just set up a feed for your RSS of it on Livejournal so I can keep an eye on it. In case anyone else wants to use it, the username is Sekimobile (http://www.livejournal.com/users/sekimobile/)
