hello ken and jake, what up? it's allllll 12" vinyl tonite. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:10pm Cubicle Carl:

I think Robin Thicke ripped this song off too. Evening all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:14pm Cubicle Carl:

There's some retail space available at the 47-50 Street and 6th Avenue subway station in NYC. Right next to the stairs of the south west entrance at 47th Street. I thought it would be great space for a new vinyl store.
  Wed. 4/8/15 9:16pm JakeGould:

Near the flower shop? Or the Sbarro's space?

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:18pm Cubicle Carl:

Next door to the convenience deli...it's not my regular subway station so I'm a little rusty on the geography.
Avatar Wed. 4/8/15 9:18pm spodiodi:

Why not make new vinyl in that space?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:19pm Jack Mello:

hey adam and spoiod, thanks fer listeni'. more to come...
Avatar Wed. 4/8/15 9:20pm spodiodi:

Thank you, Jack. Nice program! *dances*
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:21pm Cubicle Carl:

Yes, spodiodi. Vinyl slipcovers, vinyl notebooks and vinyl adhesives...working our way up to vinyl albums.
Avatar Wed. 4/8/15 9:21pm spodiodi:

Awww, yiss!
Avatar Wed. 4/8/15 9:22pm spodiodi:

Open question for people who live in NYC: Isn't it way too crowded?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:23pm Cubicle Carl:

Jake, we can go halfsies on the record store project. We might lose money, but we'll be happy.
Avatar Wed. 4/8/15 9:23pm spodiodi:

THIS jam beats the last one. Sick.
Avatar Wed. 4/8/15 9:25pm spodiodi:

Clear Vinyl slipcovers? How very NE Philly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:25pm Cubicle Carl:

Well, spodiodi, it's not quite the crowds, it's the culture of the crowds.
Avatar Wed. 4/8/15 9:26pm spodiodi:

Babel nonetheless?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:26pm Cubicle Carl:

Yes, vinyl to protect your furnishings from bodily fluids and the like.
Avatar Wed. 4/8/15 9:26pm spodiodi:

(HE'S TALKING ABOUT SPERM)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/8/15 9:27pm ikє:

@spodiodi@9:22, sometimes, but the pros mostly outweigh that con. I was in NNJ for a while & commuted for that and other reasons, but being far out wasn't really worth the extra space.
Avatar Wed. 4/8/15 9:27pm spodiodi:

Well, whatever. Vinyl slipcovers all around.
Avatar Wed. 4/8/15 9:28pm spodiodi:

But sitting on vinyl FEELS LIKE SHIT
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:28pm Cubicle Carl:

Sperm and other funky fluids.

If you're that leaky, I say "Fuck in the Tub!"

Cubicle Carl knows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/8/15 9:32pm JakeGould:

@CubicleCarl (@9:23): Hmmmm… I would be willing to be a 3rd partner in a beatnik cafe in a subway station. Like there is a small space at the Metropolitan Avenue stop that some folks turned into a pop-up zine store. Pretty sure I could be into something like that and book some cool hepcats and bongo players.
Avatar Wed. 4/8/15 9:32pm spodiodi:

Mr. DJ Jack Mello: requests? out of the question?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/8/15 9:33pm JakeGould:

Meaning 47-50th street is suit/cubicle city. You want me in, we need to be where the action is. Maybe even the Canal Street station on the 2 line.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/8/15 9:35pm JakeGould:

And a few flea market vendors I know who might even have Etsy shops have to be in on this.
  Wed. 4/8/15 9:35pm Hel:

I dunno, the only area that seems to sell vinyl is the lower eastside and underground labels lik,e peaceville etc etc. Lovin' the music, sounds like the old Studilo 54
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:37pm Jack Mello:

requests will be tough tonight...kick back and enjoy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@spodiodi - Don't know if you saw my answer at the end of Bosh's show. My avatar was made by my son. It's Hamburger Mario serving up a burger.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:37pm Cubicle Carl:

Yes, Jake. I thought about that. The advantages are is that it's centrally located, and accessible to all if the word gets out. We could also catch some closet hipsters who are posing as suits. They might be looking for an escape, and spend lots of their disposable income on vinyl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:40pm Cubicle Carl:

You were also talking about the Lorimer Street Metropolitan Ave station and not the Maspeth Metropolitan Ave station I presume?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/8/15 9:40pm JakeGould:

@CubicleCarl: Hmmm… Good point. The potential for in store (in station?) performances would be good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/8/15 9:42pm JakeGould:

@CubicleCarl: Yes, the Lorimer Street Metropolitan station. Here are details on the zine stand that was opened there about 2 years ago. www.papermag.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/8/15 9:42pm fleep:

Anyplace that serves food has to jump through 5x more bureaucratic hoops than a place selling hard goods. Will you need a Picker, to scavenge vinyl from aging boomers in small towns?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/8/15 9:43pm JakeGould:

@fleep: Yeah, the food aspect is a no go. NYC is really unfriendly towards basic food establishments.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:45pm Cubicle Carl:

@JakeGould (@9:40): It would be like an old fashioned New York happening...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/8/15 9:46pm JakeGould:

@JackMello: These selections are pretty good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/8/15 9:46pm Cubicle Carl:

@JackMello: Man, this is funky. If I knew I would have worn different shoes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/8/15 9:48pm JakeGould:

But man, I remember when Bleecker Street had that corner at McDougal with 4 cafes. One on each corner. And this was the 1980s and part of the 1990s. If that could be done in a subway? That would work. I think?

OMG, it's Stump!!! This is a hilarious remix. It doesn't have as many frogs as the original version, though.
