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.

I just installed a new router. I got it for free from Verizon. May connection is not more than 10 times faster, and my bill went down by $30 a month. All because I'm an idiot and was perfectly happy with my situation and ignored all the offers to upgrade. Did I mention that I'm an idiot.

@Jeff Moore
That would have been the rational explanation. Mostly I was inspired by my wife complaining bitterly about not getting the wifi in her office or the backyard. When I called Verizon to ask about a wifi extender or a web-network (whatever that means), the explained that my 10-year-old contract and set-up were horribly outdated and costing me unnecessarily.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Bas NL:

Yes @johnk77! It's now a huge five hall center for music. I visit there often. The -then only- main hall is kept in it's full glory, with just some cosmetics done to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Doug Schulkind:

I got the router in the mail a week ago, and it sat on my floor mocking me and my natural technology anxiety. After that same wife came and complained bitterly that I had had the damn thing for a week and hadn't hooked it up, I finally had to face my demons.

Wouldn't you know it, I plugged the fucker in and it was working after warming up for all of 5 minutes. Like I said,

an idiot.

...and then there was awhile when some special ZyXEL modems were the absolute best way to connect to one of the local ISPs (maybe Panix), because they had their own special enhancement to whatever was the modem standard at the time, allowing a little bit of extra speed if ZyXELs were on both sides of that phone line.

From an interview by Roger Steffens with Barrington Levy in '94:

Q: One of the most important songs in recent reggae history is "Under Mi SlengTeng." That was a revolutionary song. And yet, while Wayne Smith gets a lot of credit for that, it is you who created that rhythm and that song a few years before with "Under Mi Sensi."

A: Yes, definitely. Well, "Under Mi Sensi" gave him the inspiration to do that song, and I think they know. Jammy's know that, because when Jammy's come to England in 1983 "Under Mi Sensi" was on the charts at Number One for like 12 weeks - smash hit! I even ended up on British television singing about the weed. It was on a children's program, too. Thing called "Number 73." And Jammy's come to me and said, "Nice song, wicked song." And then after he went back to Jamaica, that was the first computerized rhythm that start off in Jamaica.

Q: But it's yoursong. Have you ever gotten a penny of royalities from any of the hundreds of versions of "SIeng Teng"?

A: No.
