Favoriting Hinky Dinky Time with Uncle Michael: Playlist from March 25, 2022 Favoriting

Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Favoriting

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.

Here's a question for all. Did any of you see The Power Of The Dog? I put in on last week and was sadly disappointed. I ask because the Oscars are on Sunday and it's the frontrunner for Best Picture, despite the fact that it has the lowest IMDb score out of the nominees.

As someone who loves Jane Campion's previous works like "The Piano" and "An Angel At My Table", watching this film felt almost like a punch in the gut. It had some redeeming qualities like good cinematography, music and art direction, but it was more about style over substance.

UM--I have mastered a dish that I love where I slice potatoes very thinly and chop up a whole onion and cook them in a lot of olive oil and basically steam them (lid goes go on midway through, they're barely browned). The onion is added about midway through, and I add a lot of salt and "onion salt" from TJ's (which is basically a mix of different onions, dried). The taters end up kinda glutinous, tender, and delicious!

Yes. When I think about the song it's the Hot Tuna cover.

Nyro has one of those voices you recognize in a note or 2.

Hot Tuna -- one of the most insane shows I ever saw. It was almost six hours long. "The Rampage Years"

If anyone's seen the Tammy Faye biopic, they make Gary S. Paxton look like a hunky dude, when he sort of looked like Hoss from Bonanza's inbred cousin.
