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.

In response to your query about the day: Well, it IS Friday. Here the temperature is 91 F and climbing to 97. I am not sure how it will turn out West of the Rockies.

Uncle Michael, Holly's gotta go. She's got some NC senate Republican ass-kicking to do.

Cannot leave the Chambers Brothers. Cannot believe what that horrid woman did to Lester Chambers on Saturday.
Oh, UM, cannot leave Billy Stewart, either. You are evil!

Careful with that axe, Uncle Michael!

I heard *that*.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:37pm pacific standard simon:

My nephew lucked into a lot of spare logs from a building site -- we now have enough firewood for two years... but he's got to split it first.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:38pm Uncle Michael:

rent a log splitter
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:40pm Kristin:

See yous next week. Thanks, Uncle Michael. Gotta head out into the sunshine before the radio.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:40pm Uncle Michael:

bout to get nuts
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:40pm pacific standard simon:

He's old school -- chainsaw, maul, axe. Thinking about renting an apple press for all these apples, though. Mmmm, cider!
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:40pm Uncle Michael:

Bye Kristin!
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:40pm northguineahills:

Uncle Michael, have you returned with the nuts? I'm hungry.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:44pm pacific standard simon:

Hah! Didn't know about this cover of King Kong -- I collect 'em.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:44pm Uncle Michael:

If you're heading to the ballpark, grab some Guys' Nuts.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:45pm Uncle Michael:

I don't know the original, Simon.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:45pm Alex In Illinois:

I am hearing Afro Blue in this.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:45pm pacific standard simon:

Frank Zappa classic.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:46pm Holly in NC:

If I was cool, I would.ve listended to this in high school rather than the Dixie Dregs (of course this came out well after my high school years)
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:46pm Uncle Michael:

Ah. Which album?
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:47pm pacific standard simon:

The best is Uncle Meat -- all of side 4.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:47pm Holly in NC:

So much for spelling. I claim the "my brain is melting cuz it's too friggin' hot defense"
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:52pm Uncle Michael:

That Gary Lucas album was the first thing I ever reviewed for publication.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:53pm ken in denver:

Is this for Liz Cheney?
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:54pm pacific standard simon:

You think they'll let you go back and write an addendum?
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 12:55pm Uncle Michael:

I think I probably got it right, 21 years ago.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:03pm pacific standard simon:

To think, people used to be able to throw away perfectly wonderful songs as B-sides!
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:05pm listener james from westwood:

if i were ever to do a radio show, i'd be tempted to lift the squeeze lyric and call it "time to play b-sides."
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:06pm Uncle Michael:

I'm planning all b-sides sets beginning in the near future.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:07pm pacific standard simon:

That line sounds familiar, but not as a Squeeze lyric. Wracking my brain...
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:07pm Holly in NC:

Back to Gary Lucas - I got stuck on "Poison Tree" (due to Mary Margaret O'Hara vocals) & never listened enough to remainder of album. Will rectify.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:10pm listener james from westwood:

no, it's friday and i spaced; iirc it's blue oyster cult.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:10pm pacific standard simon:

Wracked Google, instead: Blue Oyster Cult.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:11pm pacific standard simon:

The mighty R. Meltzer's "Burnin' For You".
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:17pm listener james from westwood:

quite likely confused b/c a friend of mine was in a band that had both that and some squeeze tunes on its playlist.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:20pm pacific standard simon:

Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:21pm Uncle Michael:

damn right
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:21pm pacific standard simon:

I like it.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:32pm pacific standard simon:

Halfway, baby!
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:32pm Alex In Illinois:

To Do list:
Learn to Boogaloo
Learn to Shing-A-Ling
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:32pm pacific standard simon:

Learn to Peanut Duck
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:33pm Alex In Illinois:

Reality to do list:
Move the extra drawers down to the storage
Recaulk the shower
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:36pm Alex In Illinois:

That's right Pacific Standard Time! Because according to that song, the Shing-a-ling ain't the thing!
At least there are instructions on how to do the Peanut Duck. I have never heard the Shing-A-Ling explained in any song.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:40pm Uncle Michael:

I'm more of a Funky Four Corners or a Hook and Sling man.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:41pm pacific standard simon:

To-do list: pick apples before they rot on the ground; insulate bedroom floor so I don't lose all my toes to frostbite this winter.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:44pm Monica:

Hi there, Uncle Michael! Sound swell up here in the noonday sun.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 1:46pm Uncle Michael:

Hey, Monica! Thanks!

I'm sorting and trashing computer print-outs from over 10 years ago and finding little bits of tobacco stuck all over them. How did people put up with me?

Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 2:00pm listener james from westwood:

Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 2:08pm pacific standard simon:

Paulie's hep!
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 2:11pm Uncle Michael:

Musta heard a Kraftwerk record, too!
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 2:13pm pacific standard simon:

Makes me think of something you might hear in the Bladerunner soundtrack, for those floating billboards.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 2:14pm Uncle Michael:

It started to feel like wallpaper.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 2:23pm pacific standard simon:

Found a print-out about June Christy that has just what you need: "Something Cool".
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 2:26pm Uncle Michael:

I love June Christy. Good idea...come back next week.
Avatar Fri. 7/19/13 2:27pm pacific standard simon:

Now that is perverse, UM -- Carpenters covering Buffalo Springfield!
