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.

The Montgomery Ward label was in the forefront of social commentary. Who would have thought!

Finally, country music from the 2010s that sounds like authentic country music from the Grand Ole Opry

It's Hurricane weekend, here. (what's a holiday plan?, haven't done that in 5 years)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Franco Twinkie:

I suppose on Labor Day weekend it's appropriate to get all minor chord winsome, but in L.A. Summer is still kicking our ass. Bring on sweater weather!

R Moranis is hilarious but also a terrific singer. That guy can do anything.

Diggin' the tunes t'day...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm doctorjazz:

So, as fate would have it, we're supposed to fly tomorrow to take a Disney Caribbean cruise (my daughter the actor is in her last week performing on it; in a million years I never imagined myself on a Disney cruise). Not sure how this will play out with the hurricane warnings...
  1:02pm Dean:

That tidbit of news woke me up. Wow, sorry to hear it, and I believe 100% that you'll be fine.

Thank you.

Chresti and I saw Mr. Bombino on the Santa Monica Pier before it was washed away by a tsunami in someone at Fox's demented imagination.

Was Bombino swept away?

We were all swept away...by the music, that is!

Those are awesome!

I don’t like being in confined spaces listening to music that I’m not crazy about (eg. Dance clubs)

That looks like 4 record labels for Mr. Vasori!

No wait I mean four albums

Whenever I’m home on an early Friday afternoon, I set my clock to Hinky Dinky Time, so glad to be here soaking in the various sound vibrations, as it is helping my mind in signaling Dorian instructions to go out to sea and die!

Betsy! Die, Dorian, DIE!
Avatar 1:29pm Listening Out There:

  1:29pm BetsyO:

@Uncle Michael,... yes indeed, if only giant speakers were set up along the Florida Coast facing the ocean blasting FMU,... then for sure Dorian would u-turn back into the Atlantic, slowly dying as it searched for top 40 pop radio signals,... that make it strong.
