Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

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.

Reading: a four day respite in Portland, OR, over Christmas revived my ambition to read more and better.

Definitely hope to return to Twain during the coming year, GST! But also, believe it or not, Pilgrim's Progress and Malory's Morte d'Arthur. Portland is famous for Powell's (where I picked up the Browning), but I also visited Melville Books on Alberta, a very tiny store with a marvelous selection of used, fairly priced books. That's where I got the Dickens. And then I walked across the street to the Irish pub to read a bit over a pint. Also made it to Beacon Sound, a very cool record store in PDX. I left with a Xenakis Persepolis reissue on LP, an old America album, and Michael Muller's recent LP on the Beacon Sound label.

Franco: Maybe a year or two later, I was walking on Sunset, when Petty was headlining the Whisky. My buddy and I were like, "Should we?" We declined. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Yes, Lane. Discogs says Campbell plays slide guitar on the Petty, fwiw.
  Fri. 1/3/20 2:40pm Funky16Corners:

Indeed. A very cool album, too.

@Dean when young you think that you are so cool. Then.....

Thanks for the hard work UM!
Avatar Fri. 1/3/20 2:43pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel, its funny, but back then, we didnt think anything of it. It was only years later that the WTF factor kicked in.
  Fri. 1/3/20 2:44pm Funky16Corners:

Yes, Eddie Floyd
  Fri. 1/3/20 2:44pm Dean:

Honest to goddess, I did not think myself cool at the time, Brian in UK. More likely we were thinking, "We better get our homework done," and we knew damn well that wasn't cool.

Years later, however, I did not fail to miss Dwight Twilley at the Woodstock in Buena Park, backed by a couple Cowsills.
