Spoils of the WFMU Record Fair

After a three-hour stint at the tchotchke table, two slices of pepperoni pizza from Two Boots’ table, and a survey of the assembled dealers’ tables (all accomplished in full Wonka regalia, less gloves and cane), I tottered home with—
Falling off the Bone, Todd Barry
Songs of the Pogo, Walt Kelly with Norman Monath
The Man on the Burning Tightrope, Firewater
Destroy All Astro-Men!, Man...or Astro-Man?
Downloading the Repetoire, Jack Mudurian
Stone Age Woo: The Zorch Sounds of... Nervous Norvous
Classic Maritime Music from Smithsonian Folkways Recordings

—plus a black WFMU girly tee sporting an adapted Jim Flora design and a book, Vintage Cocktails: Authentic Recipes and Illustrations from 1920-1960. Given recent events involving some of my nearest and dearest, that last purchase could be considered somewhat perverse.
