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.

Avatar Fri. 7/24/15 12:53pm northguineahills:

Last year,the squirrels used to come up and take my jalapenos, take a bite, and realize they weren't tasty, and throw them away. They also buried quite a few. This happened almost every day until my plants were nearly stripped. Finally one day I caught them, and threw a bucket of water on them, and they never came back.
Avatar    Fri. 7/24/15 12:55pm Alex In Illinois:

The Joy of Cooking shows how to skin squirrels. I think it also shows how to skin raccoons, too. My wife thinks that cooking and eating wild critters like that is gross, so I have never tried it.

That Frijid was actually surprisingly UN-proto-StonerMetallic

Can anything be Troweresque without being Hendrixesque?

Ok, but what is behind all those vocal versions of title themes which often are not in the movie themselves, and why allways chooirs ... as far as 60ies are concerned ...

4 poles to a chain, 10 chains in a furlong, 8 furlongs in a mile.

What Uncle Mike says about Roddenberry: mentalfloss.com...
Avatar    Fri. 7/24/15 2:35pm Alex In Illinois:

I sometimes wonder how they came up with "The Flying Nun". Maybe, they wanted to make a show with a female superhero, but they did not think the censors would let them get away with Wonder Woman at the time. Or maybe someone noticed that certain types of nuns wore headgear that looked like airplanes, and though it would be really neat if they could fly.

I think it just took a free afternoon and a dose of DMT.
