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.

I was thinking the too-familiar dynamic was bears at the DMV, but those lines are moving at light-speed by DMV standards. Bears at the bank?

I fixed it. There are two different places to enter text. The top fields, which feed the NOW PLAYING metadata, do not accept HTML. The fields (for artists/song/label.etc) below, DO accept HTML.

Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 12:10pm Alex In Illinois:

Never mind. I stopped the player and restarted it, and now I am haring everything continuously. I thought the stop and effect was intentional.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:10pm Matt from Springfield:

When will the next DJ be available? Is my comment very important to them?

Hi Unca Michael and Hinky Dinks! Happy Friday!

Hello everyone!
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:13pm Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: I know, right! Every time I'm reminded of that, I think back to Chris Rock's hysterical stand-up on metadata entries not accepting HTML! :)

Hello H. R. Puffinstuff.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:14pm still b/p:

davex - Oh, yeah. Was at his otherwise family-friendly backyard b-day party a couple of weeks ago when his band's volume brought the cops. Lives half a mile from me.
Without giving too much public detail, what's your connection?
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 12:14pm Uncle Michael:

Hey, Alex.
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 12:16pm davex:

still b/p: We went to school together and are now reacquainted online. I heard about the cops, funny.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:16pm Doug Schulkind:

@Matt from Springfield
Chris Rock was ripping off Richard Pryor with that bit.
  Fri. 5/31/13 12:17pm Listening Out There:

Is this playlist still being updated? Will hinkness encompass the earth?
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:17pm Doug Schulkind:

@Uncle Michael
Your playlist page is very slow. I am wondering of your gif animation is the cause.
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 12:17pm Uncle Michael:

I'll kill it.
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 12:19pm Uncle Michael:

Better?
  Fri. 5/31/13 12:19pm Listening Out There:

Now, now, Uncle Michael. Not "kill." Terminate with extreme prejudice...
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:19pm Doug Schulkind:

The world of adorning Kenzo DB pages with art is still in its infancy. Yup, that seems better.

Where's the party?
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:22pm βrian:

I can't decide whether that background is salmon pink or raspberry-smoothie rose.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:22pm still b/p:

Wives and Lovers is a song that I will never ever hear without singing aloud, and is one of the stronger prospects for my list of unlikely campfire songs.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:22pm Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: That may be true, but Richard Pryor with Paul Mooney--man, they made you laugh, but they also made you THINK! HBO hypertext protocol specials were never the same afterwards...
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@pss: You're standing in it! Welcome simon! And, uh, could you please pass me some hummus under your foot? No, the left foot...

That's NOT hummus...

Why was he named after a high school?

Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 12:39pm pacific standard simon:

It's not that uncommon -- that's why they call me PS Simon.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:43pm Doug Schulkind:

This set is surely mocking my inability to get up from my computer and grab some lunch. Damn you, Michael!

Muah-ha-ha
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:45pm still b/p:

davex -- Met him through friends in common, and became friends with him and his wife. Seen him playing in different line-ups, attended shows of his own compositions and partial perfomances of the opera. Much busy, him.
At least one other of his college-mates is close by and a mutual friend.

Doug - borrow the Firesign Theatre's technique; if you pray fervently enough, the guy with the big hair will deliver steaming hot lunch through the screen.

I'm praying as fast as I can. Mmmm canned goods. Dammit!

The thing is, there's a pretty fair chance that Mona Lisa WAS a man (Leonardo in drag)!

Jaipur vegetables from a foil packet and leftover quinoa, the pseudocereal, yeahhhhhhh!
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 12:54pm davex:

UM: Great set, enough to get everyone hungry!

I'm off for nourishing evening of Brecht/Weill now. See everyone later...

She did. I laughed.

At least someone at the record company remembered David's name.
