Mine jeep has ISL TIME. But I've always wanted to put L2FINS2R on my other car.

Re: Manassas Update

Go, don't go, either way, it's a personal choice. I won't be going because in years past the traffic getting in/out was terrible, and the crowd was a bunch of idiots. So this was the tipping point. I love tailgating (for the price of tickets, I want to get 8 full hours of all things Buffett). I have...

Re: So, looks like jiffy lube live is serious

I have been to a few shows at Nissan, as well as other venues. The past couple of times I've been to Bristow, the people on the lawn near us were total idiots (urinating right beside us, vomiting, etc...). My wife and I swore we'd never go back there to see another Buffett show, and we haven't. Mayb...

Re: Please Take Your Drunken 15 Year Old Girlfriend Home

Awesome!! I have the live version from 1975, but have never heard the album's version (I'm willing to be most of us haven't). Thanks for this gem.

Re: BUFFETT SONG PHRASES IN EVERYDAY LIFE

I have a 17 month old daughter. Whenever she gets her fingers into something that she's not supposed to, my wife and I call her "Fingers Taylor" as in "Finger Taylor is in the fridge again".

Re: I am soooo sick of all the derogatory comments about Jimmy

It is better to be silent and thought to be a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
My eighth grade English teacher used to say this to the class. It stuck with me all these years (25) later. Great advice.

Re: Jimmy's Most Unappreciated Album

Coconut Telegraph for me. I love that album from start to finish. Plus it has a cool album cover. The Good Fight is a great song nobody talks about.
I love The Good Fight. Wish he'd play it live.

Riddles in the Sand. One of my favorites that I listen to all of the time. Also Floridays. So full of sadness.

Got my copy today and LOVE it! I was going to order it off of Margaritaville website. When I went to check out, the only shipping option was UPS. And that would have been $10.86 for 3 day delivery. So I cancelled my transaction, went down to the local Walmart and picked up a copy. I am continually b...

Re: Best cover by Buffett?

While I am a fan of the earlier covers like Spider John and Big Rig and Biloxi and Lovely Cruise and Coast Of Marseilles and various others it's quite possible that the one cover Jimmy totally nailed is way more recent - Back To The Island I like Leon Russell's version much better. My vote is for B...

Re: Louie's Backyard

My wife and I ate there once. Food was good, nothing to rave about. I didn't like the hosts attitude. Looked downed upon us as soon as we walked in, even though we were very nicely dressed. Very poor attitude. It may have been a great place to hang out in the 70's, but not anymore.

Re: What was your most favorite Buffett show ever?

Re: Early Versions Of Margaritaville

I remember listening to a demo (?) of Tin Cup Chalice and hearing the line about apple wine instead of good red wine. I thought it was kind of interesting to hear an alternative version.

Re: New Album available

Picked up my copy of the album today. I was actually hesitant to buy it. I have all of his other albums, but the caliber of music Jimmy's put out in the last few years leaves something to be desired. Anyway, I just finished listening to it, and I was pleasently surprised. I found that most of the so...

My part of the world. Grew us near Salisbury, and still have family there. Saw the word "Delmarva" and almost fell out of my chair. Not many people know about it, unless you've lived there.

Re: 3 voices & two bodies

It's funny, but I have lightheartedly said to my wife that I wonder if the original Jimmy Buffett didn't quit the music business in the 80's and go underground and the studios got a look alike with no mustache. I used to work with a guy who looks like Jimmy Buffett should look now (add 30 years to t...
