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.

As a kid, I saw War on (I think) Flip Wilson's show on NBC TV. I remember hearing Dan Hicks and Hot Licks, the MJQ on his variety show. Great stuff...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Shame spurs harmful actions, while guilt accepts responsibility. And that can be useful, if it's a motivation for making amends.
And as Franco suggests, a more useful headspace would be even better. What are some of those?

I'm not sure why I might be bummed by your non-whiteness, Franco.

Avatar 12:43pm StringOFperils:

Was sort of anticipating (with dread) a mobilization of military force on the domestic front AFTER November, provided all things kept going south. Now I'm hoping this latest national shitstorm, having moved that up somewhat, will galvanize enough electoral opposition to dethrone uno who...but that is definitely the place to start moving beyond the torpor of shame and misdirected anger. And after that...???

I watched the Hollywood protesting last Monday and Tuesday, with the sound muted and ridiculous captions on, mainly to see if Griffith Park would catch on fire.

My partner & I are both brown people living in very inhospitable times. I've stopped watching the news and we both have just been listening to lots and lots of music. Seems like all we can do right now to stay (mostly) sane.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Guido from Cologne:

The Gramophone Company in UK and Victor in the USA were both related to Emil Berliner. That's why Nipper is a trademark of both.
  1:52pm Dean:

Hrrrm...let me make a few phone calls.

Basically the same arrangement as the Elvis version. Reed was first?

Will we overlook Gitarzan, that gitar man ?
Avatar 1:54pm StringOFperils:

Actually, I retract that...the audio's right, but that MALA single depicted isn't that song. That's confusing.

I like that Zankou, Hopey. I think it broke away from the family empire after a murder or some such tragic shit. I would always go there after a run to Home Depot.
