WHEN I SAID I WANTED A MASH-UP...

I didn't mean I wanted to be mashed up with that guy. Ick. Burroughsian foulness of the first water. (Burroughs believed the tape recorder to be "God's little toy", and a potent fulcrum of magic. Best be careful what you mash together.) But props to poster Bravus for stepping up.
I now suspect that there's some deep fractal essence in play, with that material. Probably fundamentally impossible to rock it. And perhaps just as well.

Hello from Hicksville on the Hudson. A brief nostalgia break, prompted by memories of pre-Regooded NYC.
P & G Bar, Amsterdam & 73rd, opened 1939, closed at this location in February 2009.
The Meatpacking District (MePa[TM] at present) was called the Meatpacking District for a reason, after all. This from 2007, now I believe a store for echt-German eyeglass frames.
When I was six, Lexington's local amusement park, Joyland, closed; a subdivision was built there and a strip mall that has since housed everything from a tanning salon to a Holy Roller church. My daughter is now six, and Coney Island is no more, save for the Wonder Wheel and the Cyclone roller coaster. Just about everything else -- gone. Time share condos preferred by those who do the preferring, it seems.
Kit Burns' Rat Pit, c. 1850. Built late 1700s. Restored out of recognizability within the past seven years.
Who regoods the regooders?
We now return to our previously scheduled program.
