from the mundane to the mundane and back again

Whether fighting oil well fires in Texas as leader of the John Wayne Brigade or chefing up his famous “Grouse ala mode” for the extremely wealthy patrons of his Park Avenue restaurant L’entrail, this 48 year old daredevil and bon vivant leads a life of exciting excitement. A one man Algonquin table, his ribald tales of noble savagery will stick in your psyche like some peanut butter for your mind. Excelsior!

      I have been seeing variations on this shirt design for awhile now and it bothers me. The replacement of the letter “O” with the state of New Jersey. New Jersey looks nothing like an “O”.  If anything it slightly resembles an “8”. So if you wanted to make a shirt with “H (outline of [&hellip […]

    It was Sunday 5pm, we were closing up, half the lights were off and we were locking the doors. A large guy steamed in, trailed by 3 toddlers and his wife. “We’re closing up now sir, if we can help you find something…” “I know what I want. I wanna pre-order the new Metallica” “I’m [&hellip […]

  • Sawyer Brown: The album covers - July 1, 2016
      There are times at work that if I need a laugh I look through certain artists cd sections. Mid eighties country artists are some of my favorites. It was a time when the country/mainstream/pop crossover thing had just started. Many of these bands delivered the expected goods musically but image-wise they didn’t deliver and [&hellip […]

    Walked into a nearby 7-11 to get some coffee. It was late afternoon, there was a malfunctioning Slurpee machine that was making a constant loud kerrrrrCHUNK…kerrrrCHUNK noise like it was the soundtrack for a David Lynch movie. The only other customer was this guy who was talking on his bluetooth loudly and only saying one [&hellip […]

      Jack’s Music opens at 9:30 on Saturdays. My band played the night before and I was a little under the weather, I don’t snap back after a late night like I used to. There was a guy at the front door, waiting for us to open. He was young, disheveled, loud, a fast talker [&hellip […]

    Very old guy, looking for a Diana Krall CD. He had a hard to place accent and coupled with his ancientness made it really difficult to understand him. Found the CD for him while he was looking at our small collection of used cassettes Guy-are these all Jacks? Me- yeah, all those are his…he bought [&hellip […]

  • German 45 rpm record sleeves - May 2, 2016
    Bought a few singles recently and found a bunch of cool 45 sleeves, most of them seem like generic German sleeves from the early sixties. The only song I was familiar with is the novelty song “Baby sitter boogie”. My friend Jens Bornhoft, informed me after I published this that Amiga was an East German [&hellip […]

      Large disheveled guy and his wife lurched into the store with a big misshapen box of records that was more duct tape than box. As he was elaborately taking the tape off of the box to get at the records within… I got a lot of great records here…A LOT!…and they’re all in great [&hellip […]
