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.

Today you wouldn't know it was ever a zone of anything, certainly not of the tawdry, raw and dangerous. A lot of Emerson College kids live at its former edge, and redevelopment in and near it has recast it. It ain't all polished, but it sure ain't the Pilgrim Theater and Naked I.
Avatar    Fri. 2/14/14 2:17pm listener james from westwood:

although it has its pluses, i guess. one of my earliest memories of college is reading a story in the boston phoenix about someone in roxbury or dorchester (both then still rough in 1987) picking up used condoms around her building with folded paper plates. less of that can't be bad.

My eye doctor was in Little Building for years. A year or so ago I stepped in there to just glance again at the 1st/2nd floor lobby/arcade for nostalgia's sake and was surprised to find a security guard at a podium blocking nonresidents and unauthorized persons.

I hate myself for loving rock 'n' roll.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/14/14 2:37pm Uncle Michael:

I like this better now than I did then.

Put another bullet in the jukebox, baby.
Avatar    Fri. 2/14/14 2:38pm listener james from westwood:

okay. i may be crazy, but i think the version of this joan jett cut now getting airplay on things like 101.1 in the nyc market is a re-recorded edition. it just sounds different, esp. the vocals here and there. this, on the other hand, sounds like the original. am i nuts?

Time to take a more serious turn...

I always loved the drumming on this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/14/14 2:41pm Uncle Michael:

This song still slays me. Sonofabitch could write 'em.
