Holy shit does that Stephen Merritt special sound tantalizing. What a get, Irwin!

Funny. I just watched "Downsizing" last night...

Nice photo--who made it?

Me did.

Josh was on the streets of Hoboken, right outside Jack's apartment.

Fantastic version of the Snuff Box Theme!

I think Josh is a voyeur...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:26pm βrian:

I thought it was just a very tall curb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:26pm Linda Lee:

well done Irwin! i see a workout.

You should use Fotomat!

The development time for group-IV tiffs is crazy, these days.

If Dickens were alive today, he'd be serializing novels on drugstore receipts.
  Wed. 5/2/18 3:29pm Laura L:

It may be that only his underpants are named Josh!
  Wed. 5/2/18 3:29pm IBJ:

Are you sure Josh wasn't Fusco?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:29pm βrian:

Zola, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 3:30pm Irwin:

Yes, LL, perhaps it's a brand logo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:30pm βrian:

I marveled that every kid in the dorm seemed to be named Calvin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:31pm Linda Lee:

alas, i fear Josh-wearing Josh is no more. there's a novel right there ~ full of humor, drama & pathos: "Josh of Lilliput".
  Wed. 5/2/18 3:32pm Dean:

Maybe "josh" is a verb. Maybe the guy wearing the drawers--let's call him Kyle--doesn't know he's being made fun of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:33pm βrian:

Josh was the great grandson of Mr Bill.
  Wed. 5/2/18 3:33pm Dean:

If this hypothesis is correct, then maybe we should add...an adverb!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:34pm βrian:

Is Rickily an adverb? As in, I rickily jones for some coffee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:34pm Linda Lee:

could even be a serial! "Josh Gets His Underpants" ~ "Josh Among The Giants" ~ "Kicked To The Curb" ~ "Josh And The Squirrel"! not only a serialized novel, but a webcomic! Josh's own blog! Josh brand Underpants! Josh the Movie! ~
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:35pm melinda:

Hi all. I like the tiny curb man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:35pm Linda Lee:

hi melinda! how are you?

Hi Linda! I'm ok.

glad to hear it! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:40pm βrian:

@melinda: What kind of music did your dad like?
  Wed. 5/2/18 3:44pm andrewb:

always thought that bowie number sounded like Tchaikovsky or was that the idea
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:46pm melinda:

@Brian: classical, opera, old country, bluegrass, klezmer, Norteño, calypso, 1950s rock n roll. Thanks for asking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:46pm Linda Lee:

melinda, i'm sorry, has something happened?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:47pm Linda Lee:

i'll understand if you can't say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:48pm βrian:

Quite the breadth! My dad pretty much stuck with Lawrence Welk and big band/swing music. WWII was the epicenter of his life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:49pm βrian:

Anyway, maybe you should set yourself up with a little playlist. I found myself listening to Glen Miller.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:51pm melinda:

@Brian that's funny. I'm glad I was exposed to a wide range of musics in my youth, most people don't stray far from a narrow segment. @Linda my dad died a couple of days ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:52pm Linda Lee:

oh no. i'm so sorry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:52pm melinda:

Thanks Linda. I'm doing ok.
  Wed. 5/2/18 3:52pm Dean:

Sorry to hear that, @melinda. My sympathies. Nice that you have fond musical memories of him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:53pm Linda Lee:

so hard to lose a parent. i'm really sorry. really glad you're doing all right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:56pm melinda:

Thanks Dean. The music was a great gift.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 3:57pm BronwynB:

as i believe i have mentioned, rob and pea's song on the powerpuff girls tie-in cassette from 2000, which mentions shooby taylor, was my first exposure to outsider music, sort of. i was 6 and played that tape every single day. thanks rob and pea. i still love that song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 3:57pm !ke:

Irwin, is your guest Phil Schaap? Please tell me it's Phil Schaap. That would be hilarious. Or boring. One of those.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 3:58pm Irwin:

God no, Ike. Never ever. I've been in a studio with PS once and it will suffice for a lifetime, thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 3:59pm Irwin:

I was gasping for oxygen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 3:59pm Passaic River Blues:

Oh God, Melinda--so, so truly awful. Sending north to you unreserved feelings of sympathy and condolence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 4:02pm melinda:

Thanks Passaic

When I was in Ann Arbor for one glorious summer as an engineering coop at Visteon (lived in a high rise apt with 3 other guys) there was a really cool music shop that had an Optigan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 4:03pm βrian:

Ann Arbor is still the center of the world to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 4:06pm βrian:

@WN: Not University Towers, I hope. That place was frightening.
  Wed. 5/2/18 4:16pm ciaranpuente:

haven't heard DDG on the radio in years, thanks Irwin
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 4:18pm Linda Lee:

thanks for clarifying that 'the' thing, Irwin! i used to know this stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 4:18pm βrian:

Is Irwin doing a Net Neutrality awareness thing, here?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 4:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Irwin and curb stompers.
@BronwynB - Did you move over the weekend? How did that go? How's the new place?

@ken: yes i did and thus was the only person in the entire known universe not at the record fair! the new place is amazing, thanks for asking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 4:28pm βrian:

Which record fair?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 4:31pm BronwynB:

@brian: the plain & fancy 99-cent record sale in topeka, kansas over the weekend. everyone's been talking about it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 4:33pm βrian:

Oh, yeah. The one Uncle Michael runs out of his garage. I hear the 8-tracks on offer were without compare!
  Wed. 5/2/18 4:38pm Ochre Ogre:

Should we inform Josh there's a break in the curb where he easily pass, though he may bloody his feet on mini sea shells, or is that popcorn?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 4:45pm melinda:

Stephin Merritt, woo hoo! I look forward to that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 4:46pm melinda:

Ogre those sort of look like blossom petals.
  Wed. 5/2/18 4:51pm Ochre Ogre:

Melinda indeed thanks, my imagination gets the best of me sometimes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 4:56pm NewWilOrder:

I've heard of pre-historic humans using each other as bait while hunting the now extinct giant sloth. Could Josh have employed the same tactic on an unsuspecting squirrel?
