Music Monday: License to Chill, Carolinas and reminiscing

| May 15, 2017

My friend Jeff and I were reflecting on my bachelor party/camping trip to North and South Carolina in May of 1982 just as a photo appeared of Jimmy Buffett and friends hanging out on Folly Beach, SC. Jeff was sharing a couple of Buffett songs from the License to Chill album while we were reminiscing. […]

Short montage of songs Jimmy Buffett has not played in 10 years

| June 15, 2016

Saw an update on Jimmy Buffett’s Facebook page and sharing a montage of songs he and the Coral Reefer Band have not performed in 10 years. The great part about the old JB music is that I know most of it by heart … so it doesn’t seem that long to me.      Montage […]

How to get out of a common-cold, runny nose induced funk

| May 17, 2016

After realizing Monday’s topic was a bit depressing, it is time for a "TWO-fer positive" post, besides the sun warmed me up and is baking away my head cold (kept me down all weekend). It’s time to be a little more optimistic. First, here’s a beach scene that can transport just about anybody to that […]

Music, mood, memories … Incommunicado.

| April 26, 2016

Too busy to post today even though I’m just spinning my wheels … even though I’d rather be Incommunicado. (Thanks for sending me the text message with this song, Jeff!) A few Jimmy Buffett .mp3 clips posted around the web … rejuvenating. Jimmy Buffett (MP3)      Incommunicado Jimmy Buffett (MP3)      Treat Her […]

Jimmy Buffett made a cameo in Jurassic World–who knew?

| February 17, 2016

Every once in a while, a tidbit of fairly worthless trivia crosses my plate and yet I find it interesting. I heard this week that a long time singer, songwriter, performer, author and obviously actor that I’ve enjoyed my whole life, had a cameo part in last years movie Jurassic World. Hm … Jimmy Buffett […]

JB and JB performing together in 2013 on May 2nd & 4th

| March 11, 2013

My favorite for live entertainer is Jimmy Buffett (and I’ve been to several concerts starting back in the late 1970s) with my favorite songwriter and performer Jackson Browne together in Texas this May … wow, what great concerts (I probably listen to the Pandora station Jackson Browne more than any other station – check it out). […]

Escapism … I think we all need it some days

| June 4, 2011

I was feeling melancholy last night after posting the fifth straight down week for the benchmark Dow Jones Industrials, and it got me thinking that there aren’t all that many more years before this ‘pirate’ (moi) hits another milemarker? There just isn’t that much more working time left in me to complete “the planned” retirement […]

Video: Jimmy Buffett … “after the fall”

| January 28, 2011

A few words of appreciation from Jimmy Buffett … humbled by the outpouring of concern and well wishes from his fans. From his comments it does look like he is going to be just fine although will miss the New Zealand concert. Gotta love the the “Fins Up!” smile. 😎

The “show must go on” as the Tropical Storm Alex continues NW

| June 29, 2010

As the gulf coast continues to clean up oil damaged shorelines, folks in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida resort businesses welcome home grown singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett, who with some friends will be helping to promote tourism with a free beach concert Thursday night. While oil gushes and a more noticeable oil slick moves closer to the […]

BP Oil Spill: Two months after the disaster

| June 22, 2010

  The BP Oil Disaster is bound to be the story to remember 2010 by as historians archive this year. Like most Americans who’ve travelled and enjoy the gulf coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, I’m disgusted and saddened by the damage that is being done to the economy, coastline and ecosystem. As we […]

Jimmy Buffett: sails thru 60

| January 14, 2007

As an original “before the salt” Jimmy Buffett fan, I’m embarrassed to have missed his 60th birthday — I was there in the 1970s and have the original vinyl albums to prove it … along with books and concert memories — right Jeff? (am I getting that old?). Anyway, happy belated birthday Bubba. 😀 Time […]
