funny thing about that photographer's flickr page; last year i found myself on the same street as that adult theater in philly that he photographed and likewise took a picture. i was like, "there are still brick-and-mortar adult theaters?!"
Hi Vicki -- I'll meet you at the Flamingo after the show!
Yep Charlie.. pretty sure it's the follow up.. one of the "I had a hit with a summer song so how about a winter song" records
Brian in UK:
Good After, Charlie & chums.
I used to drive by an adult theater every day to and from work. I used to look forward to the movie titles that were satires of then-popular movies. Often crude, but nearly always funny. In 3 foot tall letters.
The last downtown porn theater locally became a rock club years ago. Dose that mean the devil and the hygiene risks are less present? Couldn't say.
ndbob.. Robin Ward's Wonderful Summer preceded the Caravelles "You Are Here" by a few months.
listener james from westwood:
there was one I used to see from the bus while commuting on rt 80 called the queen anne theater. leonia or bogota or something like that. the structure is still there, but no idea if it's still screening films and marking the marquee with those sorts of pun-tacular titles
I have very distinct memories of the music I was listening to during the times I was on the night shift. I often associate certain songs or albums with particular places/times. Anyone else experience this phenomenon?
if it's any sign from the heavens... my roommate just got back from yet another job interview ... and he go the job!! so maybe it's the energy in the air.. your turn next ngh!!
Sure do Charlie.. sometimes the association comes immediately, sometimes it takes a little time to place it.
Thanks annie, waiting right now for the call. This recruiter has been rather flakey the last 10 days, so, 1:30 could mean anything.
Try getting me a job, too, Annie!
booker t with that all night diner ambience
Hey, Charlie, Doug and all!
In Cambridge, I worked a night shift for many months at a bio lab. Quite appropriate centrifuging and separating blood samples in the middle of the night!
I never adjusted to the third shift, and the only beauty I derived from that experience was walking home from the bus stop early mornings, hearing the birdsong and watching the squirrels scamper.
hhmm.. tall order mr drummer, bad enough i haven't been of any use to ndbob... but my experience of the last few years?? whatever you've done is not necessarily what you should be doing; it only adds to your collective experience. each job evolves to the next. although, this selling nuts thing is pretty odd, considering i'm all about honesty in advertising.. and well.. this schtick isn't so on the up and up... although he means well. and then there'e the whole practice of right livelihood.. now THAT'S a tough act.. anything can be rationalized, but how far do you stretch your principles? oy vey!
Hey, Bob! Folks were wanting you to call 7SD as the ND rep last night!
@Charlie: Tom Waits for everyone -- thanks! [listening but, as usual, not at keyboard]
Van in DC:
Busily working away, listening & enjoying. That started to sound like Hans Dulfer to my ear there for a minute, causing me to look up and check in again :)
Oh and I am interviewing a 5th person tomorrow, hopefully they will work out too :)
On my way momentarily -- thanks for joining me here today, one and all!
