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 gif puts me in mind of this story. Not sure if you can see it.

That GIF looks like something Henry Darger would have created if he were alive today. Except that all the children would be naked.

I want to work "weird gif" or "jeered whiff" into the Andrews Sisters number..."Bei Jeered Whiff Du Schoen."

There would be a bad version of "Third Man Theme" if Vanilla Fudge had covered it.

Ray Davies gets a lot of credit as a songwriter, but he often seems underrated as a singer.

Avatar Fri. 6/21/13 12:58pm Doug Schulkind:

Just re-watched "The Third Man" the other night. Man what a gorgeous film. Original score is pretty slamming, too.

That whole Anton Karas score is excellent.

Mine dropped, seemed to go to the alternate and into the one-second intemittency that occurs for me with every program hand-off on the stream...then with a few pop-up restarts your program returned

WooHoo! I have "Zapped" somewhere in my basement.
Avatar Fri. 6/21/13 2:02pm Uncle Michael:

I'll give you five bucks for it!
Avatar Fri. 6/21/13 2:06pm pacific standard simon:

Sent in my dollar (National Lampoon ad), got my copy of Zapped (second edition), played the hell out of it, and left it next to the heater vent in my mom's Volkswagen Beetle -- where it warped into a candy dish.
Avatar Fri. 6/21/13 2:08pm Uncle Michael:

I could clean my bathroom during this track.
Avatar Fri. 6/21/13 2:09pm pacific standard simon:

Wish there was more of an ondioline presence in rock -- but then, I like bagpipes, too.
Avatar Fri. 6/21/13 2:10pm Uncle Michael:

1960s rock musician Al Kooper made regular use of the Ondioline in his work with the Blues Project and Blood, Sweat & Tears, and in his early solo career. Notable examples of Kooper's Ondioline work are the Blues Project's "I Can't Keep From Crying Sometimes" (from the album Projections, 1966), "Steve's Song" (Projections, 1966) and "No Time Like the Right Time" (The Blues Project Live at Town Hall, 1967); Blood, Sweat & Tears' "Meagan's Gypsy Eyes" (Child Is Father to the Man, 1968); and Kooper and Mike Bloomfield's "His Holy Modal Majesty" (Super Session, 1968). Tommy James and the Shondells' 1967 hit "I Think We're Alone Now" also featured the sound of an Ondioline in the background, played by keyboard session player Artie Butler.[3]

I think this got a little inspiration from the Butterfield band's "East/West."

Avatar Fri. 6/21/13 2:15pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Dunno, Kevin, but I think the Super Session drummer had been listening to a lot of Dave Brubeck.
Avatar Fri. 6/21/13 2:16pm pacific standard simon:

Wait, I'm supposed to be job searching, dammit! You guys!

true. but also more lawsuit- and building-board provoking
Avatar Fri. 6/21/13 2:41pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Fri. 6/21/13 2:43pm G:

the fifteen seconds after the last screw came out and it needed to be held onto and lifted up and over the bottom of the window frame was adequately exciting for one afternoon.
Avatar Fri. 6/21/13 2:47pm G:

musical excitement, as here, has fewer practical downsides, i reckon
