Options Hinky Dinky Time with Uncle Michael: Playlist from December 17, 2014 Options

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.

No better deal than the NYC coffee carts. Worked in a building w/ a SBUX on the ground floor and a coffee cart 30 yards down the street. The latter always had a line.

So this HD Special goes until 5 p.m. Eastern?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/17/14 9:26am Parq:

When my kid was in high school, she and her friends patronized the corner coffee cart so much that they considered inviting the guy to their graduation.
