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.

Not satisfied with the term for fearing 13 and Friday the 13th, Triscuit Decca Faux Beer, they had to inflate it to a more particular term, Pair Of Skivvies Decca Try A Faux Beer. That really jumps my crow.

Just got a call looking for someone with my name. They were actually looking for a Florida Teabagger who's made a habit of disrupting town meetings and citing George Zimmerman as a defense for attacking someone with a shovel. I can only imagine what the call was about.

Hi efd, and thanks!

Inspiring NN is some claim to fame!
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:36pm still b/p:

Shippin'...? Maybe, Uncle Michael. Much of the music is from Network -- you know, with tracks such as Winning Momentum, Morning Mist, Rio Grande Getaway...suitable for not much more than flights of spoofery. A handful of other discs from Major Production Music and Valentino. Then there's the CBS Sound Library records, which I really do want to get transferred for myself.
Avatar Fri. 6/13/14 1:37pm Uncle Michael:

Sounds like fun stuff.

Before I go, one last Friday the 13th thought -- I was born on Saturday the 14th, in Wichita, at 12:55 in the morning -- but, Pacific Daylight Time, it was still the 13th. Wonder if my mom held back?
