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 used to like watching 45s go 'round on my little portable turntable. I especially liked the ones that were designed to look good spinning, like the Capitol label with its swirling yellow and orange. The Parrot label was a favorite, watching the parrot with his doffed bowler orbiting 'round and 'round.

Having more or less directly experienced the moment, I can't avoid regarding punk more as a space of time than a genre per se. Unlike, say, the arrival of Romanticism with, e.g., Beethoven. But, yeah, policing the borders of genres is inevitably arbitrary.

Hi Scraps!

The Goodwill stores around here play music videos on TVs. Every time I go to the local one, they play Mayor of Simpleton, which makes me happy.

Thanks, @UM!

(I imagine Elvis Costelllo hearing "Simpleton" for the first time and just shaking his head.)
