Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

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.

My better half is threatening a lemon tart this weekend -- it's got the whole fruit pureed in it with just the seeds removed.

burke, talk her into taking the zest off, then cutting away and tossing out the white pith.

Joe! Did you ride the storm out?
  12:50pm Joe:

Yeah we were supposed to be dead center of the hell and that little shift put it right around us. I feel horrible saying it but we came out completely unscathed. We are so very very lucky unlike the folks to the east of us
  12:50pm dan:

You will never find Rod Price on the list of greatest guitarists or Lonseome Dave on a great rock vocalists list. Foghat is very under appreciated.

Brian! How are things in Blightey?
  1:11pm dan:

Hard to believe that Stevie Wonder was only 15 years old when he recorded "Uptight", the same age Justin Bieber was when he recorded the crappy "Baby.
  1:14pm Dean:

I'd like to hear a song called "Crappy Baby."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm Uncle Michael:

Dean! Yes, let's.
  1:17pm dan:


Everything Bieber does is crappy, whether the song is "Baby" or "Crappy Baby".
Avatar 1:17pm Brian in UK:

Uncle, well weather wise we have had heavy rain, not like the east coast but bad enough.
This freaking brexit is feeble in the extreme.
Oh and that wall across the sahara is an idea no one else has thought of. Can someone change the medication, please.

Hey Tio Michael. Hinky Dinkin' it in Palisades Park
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Scraps:

Argh. We have had an exploding outlet. Plug melted. (Nobody hurt.) I knew that the man who fixed this house was an amateur, and several things had gone wrong, but jeezus. Electrician here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Uncle Michael:

wall?! wot?

Rey! Is Freddy Cannon with you?
  1:19pm dan:

My guess is that "The Rent Is Always Due" became "I Am A Child"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm Uncle Michael:

Scraps! Veysmir.

Good guess, Dan. Neil demo'd it twice.
Avatar 1:21pm βrian:

Cuz, as they say, The Good Lord giveth and the landlord taketh away.

  1:22pm dan:

Who do you think had the better voice, Roberta or Gladys? I'd go with Gladys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Uncle Michael:

Brian, discount utterances by idiots.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Scraps:

Jeez, both great
Avatar 1:23pm βrian:

I don't see why the UK can't just exit the Brexit. Especially, since there was evidence of Russian meddling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm Uncle Michael:

Gladys still sounds great. Saw her a year or so ago.

Avatar 1:28pm Brian in UK:

@βrian I would love to but this is the president and this is what we call democracy.
Guess we get the politicians that we deserve. No, that is not correct because in a true democracy there would be an option for not accepting any candidates.
  1:28pm Dean:

@dan: I'm not a Bieber fan by a stretch, and I might be confusing his music with that of a half-dozen similar pop crooners (Charlie Puth, Sam Smith, etc.), but owing to my 12YO's radio preferences I hear a lot of it, and some of it, in small doses, isn't that bad.
Avatar 1:28pm βrian:

That V-fib can interfere with one's music listening pleasure.
Avatar 1:30pm Brian in UK:

@Dean what is quality? Had this troubling question with Robert Pirsig.
Avatar 1:30pm βrian:

But when does a referendum preclude a subsequent referendum? I dunna get it.
Avatar 1:31pm Brian in UK:

Uncle how was the Sweetheart gig?
Avatar 1:33pm Dominick:

yes yes yes!
  1:34pm rw:

However it turns out you’re going to need ice cream. Off to work now. Thanks UM! Later kids!
Avatar 1:34pm Brian in UK:

@βrian, it should not. Except when the public is told blatant lies like the Brexit supporters did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Rich in Washington:

That Roberta Flack track reminded me that I finally got around to seeing Play Misty For Me after all these years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Uncle Michael:

see ya rw!

GREAT, Brian. And you can discount the idiotic utterance because NO ONE would build that wall, and SPAIN can't afford to fence an allotment.
Avatar 1:43pm Brian in UK:

I know but it is the way stuff comes spouting out. All fighting talk but that is what the public loves, Well some public.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm Uncle Michael:

This is NOT the version of Cantaloupe Woman from "His Majesty..." and I'm at a loss...
Avatar 1:44pm Brian in UK:

No chance of the tour coming over here.
  1:47pm Dean:

@Brian in UK: Pirsig, the Motorcycle Maintenance guy? Prior to his demise, I suppose. Some folks love Telemann, some loathe him. I happen to include myself among the former, but I can sympathize with the latter.

Lounge versions of Rachmaninov, though, test the limits of my tolerance.
Avatar 1:47pm βrian:

Oh, this!
Avatar 1:48pm βrian:

Are there lounge versions of Elgar?
  1:49pm Dean:

Yes! https://www.amazon.com/Classical-Chillout-Lounge-Johann-Sebastian/dp/B00013MVQC

Delius'd be better!
  1:50pm Dean:

(Pretty sure "lounge" is being used differently in that Amazon link, I know.)
Avatar 1:54pm Brian in UK:

@Dean the definition of quality pursued him all through the book.
Hoping to go to this recital tomorrow.
Avatar 1:57pm Brian in UK:

@Dean yes,'On hearinbg the first cuckoo of Spring' by Esquivel would be quaint.
  1:57pm Dean:

That recital looks spectacular.

Never read Z&tAoMM. Made it most of the way through Gulag Archipelago, though.

Uncle Mike - Was listening to your Have a Nice Day anniversary show. You need to get your brother an Elliot Lurie "Brandy" shirt. The "Brandy 72" on the back is incredible. www.elliot-lurie.com...
  2:50pm Dean:

Was just thinking yesterday of a song I'd like to hear delivered by Waits, but now I can't remember it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Uncle Michael:

Thank you, Pedro...and that's pretty cool!

Think hard, Dean!
Avatar 2:55pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

More faux Macca!
  2:55pm Dean:

Well, when I got home I played a bunch of Morten Lauridsen records, and I'm damn sure I didn't imagine Waits singing any of those tunes.

No, come to think of it, it *was* a Lauridsen tune, in fact his most famous: "Dirait on."
