Something about that lower GIF...methinks there's a mickey or a roofie or something equally nefarious in the works.
Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 7:23pm deanland:

Ironic that on Memorial day it seems there's not enough memory in my PC.

Re that lower GIF... Friend of mine who spent some time as a fortune teller told me that men with pinky rings almost ALWAYS have sex problems. So she would wait until the end of "reading" and then, in hushed tones, tell them that "that little bedroom difficulty you've been having is about to come to an end." She said, no pun intended, it got her much better tips.

Hey Ho - Let's...Orchestrate...

What about cats?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/26/13 7:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/26/13 7:39pm G:

how can you BREAK it???????????
Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 7:39pm deanland:

@Dave E, you mean like on the Lower East Side, Katz's Delicatessen?
  Sun. 5/26/13 7:40pm frenchee:

It might be Anna May Wong, very young...
Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 7:40pm Monica:

12539 - howdee!... deanland - love that theory!...bloopy!!!...revrab - sounds good to me... amEdeo, you know how we do...Daev E - cool cats always welcome...FRENCHEE!
Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 7:44pm Reeshard:

@ frenchee: To judge from the shape of her face - when I'm not distracted by that crazy spit-curl - I think you're right, that it could well be Anna May Wong. Am much smitten with this evening's set, Miz M., thanks!
Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 7:45pm CB1:

The music is perfect. Off to the entree . . . .
  Sun. 5/26/13 7:46pm 12539:

Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 7:48pm deanland:

Ditto what @frenchee said
  Sun. 5/26/13 7:48pm frenchee:

Anna May had smoother skin, and yes that spitcurl is distracting
  Sun. 5/26/13 7:49pm frenchee:

off to cook some London broil, I'll be listening for tonight's topic
Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 7:50pm Dave E:

Here's the Strut catalog: www.strut-records.com...
Are you referring to the Sofrito Tropical Discotheque comp? I've forgotten the span of years you'd mentioned.
  Sun. 5/26/13 8:17pm Nashville Noah:

LOVED Strut Records before they were brought back by k7, still decent release there's just as not much thought that goes into them as before...

Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 8:17pm Dave E:

nice face, dale
Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 8:18pm Monica:

Oh man, I itch . . . I hate Poison Ivy! Now, there's a good topic for this evening.
  Sun. 5/26/13 8:25pm moontana:

Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 8:25pm deanland:

Hearing Georges Moustaki one thinks of Charles Aznavour, and his eternal cigarette and broken heart.

i was nauseous cuz i had it this week on one side of my face, on my neck and my belly. using the weedwacker is dangerous business. it get's on your shoelaces and then you get it between your fingers, which i had three weeks ago.
Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 8:28pm dale:

....poison ivy, not Charles Aznavour
Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 8:28pm Monica:

Charles Azanvour, European that he was, most likely had Red Oak, not Poison Ivy. Sacre bleu!

Pets: A form of Captivity - or a GreatLife - ??
...Domestication as Infantilization:
- Dogs are like WolfPups
- Cats relate to us as Mothers, & break out the playing cards & cigars the minute we're not around...
- Is this true of HomoSapiens - us too?? A Nietzschean concept: Are we diminished by Civilization??...

yes, my namesake pic has an uncle for a father, so some inbreeding going on. if only they had a sense of shame before fornicating..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/26/13 8:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

HeHe!...Devolution prob. not a 'hot' sexy topic (sorry!) - but @ least fornication has been invoked...
Avatar Sun. 5/26/13 8:49pm dale:

as an experiment, i wonder if anyone has taken some of these old songs - the ones where the singer actually hits the notes - and ran it through the autotuner?

al bowlly, never really made it here in the US!
