Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

the first time I ever got blackout drunk as a youth, I woke up to this record on my headphones playing side two over and over on my cheapo automatic turntable. It must've played over 100 times, easily. I somehow escaped having any kind of hangover whatsoever and I accredit it to Funhouse.

My residential street has speed bumps, one directly in front of our house. This is a no-win situation. When drivers slow down in front of our house, as they tend to do, I wonder for a split second why they're scoping out the place. When they don't slow down, I fear for pedestrians.

Gawd. For some reason, I have really been digging this era of country music. This was the stuff I remember growing up in the rural podunk of my childhood. My family hated this kind of music, too. But it just seemed inescapable.
I sure do like it now, to the continued consternation of my missus and some of my friends.

I'm not sure I'd heard of Gasolin' until I went record shopping in Denmark. They're EVERYWHERE over there.

rightly so!

Hello Uncle. Never heard Cellophane Brain before. Cool and weird and a string section, of course. Nice, thanks.

Apparently, Gaslolin retained the services of Queen producer Roy Thomas Baker.
  Fri. 5/18/18 1:53pm Dean:

He was paid what would amount to ~$11k in 2018 dollars, sure. But the deal in 1970 was a handshake, and the cover image, the copyright to which likely remains his, has been reproduced a gazillion times since. I do think his son, who wrote the article, seemed a little whiny.

Kinda wishing I picked some up now. This is pretty solid.

The Aqualung Artist, Burton Silverman is almost 90 years old and still makes his money doing portraits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/18/18 1:57pm Uncle Michael:

Dean, as far as I can tell, it was work for hire and he didn't retain any rights, contractually. They didn't by a painting, they commissioned an illustration.
  Fri. 5/18/18 2:00pm Dean:

Work for hire only applies when the artist is an employee working within the scope of his/her employment. According to Silverman, who was not an employee of Chrysalis or Tull's management, there was no contract. Not good business sense, for sure, but these circumstances don't affect copyright.
  Fri. 5/18/18 2:02pm Dean:

Now, it could be that pre-1976 Copyright Act required registration to claim copyright. If that's so, then the outcome could be different. The article didn't address any of this.
  Fri. 5/18/18 2:04pm Dean:

[There are exceptions to the work made for hire rules that permit non-employees to produce them, but I'm pretty sure they require a written contract.]

Donnie Darko is a movie that I loved in high school when it came out, but which I'm terrified won't hold up to a rewatch.

It might not.

Q98 played Bad Company all the time back then, so it brings back memories to hear them again.

Carne asada? Chicken? Al Pastor?

I once had a taco de sesos at LA's King Taco. Brains. Explains why I'm so smatr.

Al Pastor if they do it for real on a vertical rotisserie.

We only have one taco stand in my town that does pastor meat right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/18/18 2:47pm Rich in Washington:

Most ones around here, if they even HAVE al pastor on their menus, they just take regular carnitas meat and slather it with a sort of al pastor like sauce. Not the same as the long marinated and roasted pork.

The place that's opening is a mexican grocery and restaurant that has three locations in Kansas City. There store here will be bigger tan any of the others. The store isn't opening for another 2-3 weeks. They've spent 13 months remodeling a derelict supermarket that had been closed for over 15 years.
  Fri. 5/18/18 2:51pm Dean:

My favorite Mexican place in these parts--there are more in Southern California--is Mercado del Sol in Concord, which entails a bit of a drive for us. Not sure on which axis they prepare their pastor, but the complete package is wonderful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/18/18 2:52pm burke:

Makes me imagine how much more dereliction the urban midwest would have if it weren't for the Mexican demographic boom of the past couple decades.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/18/18 2:54pm Uncle Michael:

ain't that the truth
  Fri. 5/18/18 2:55pm Dean:

I'm thinking now of a joint in Pico Rivera, east of LA, where my mother-in-law went to buy masa one Christmas. It was a restaurant and, being in LA County, it was required to post a health dep't ranking (A, B, etc.). There was no posting, but the clientele when we arrived were county sheriffs. A good sign. The chile verde was out of this world.
