A very deck Veep
veep

“Deck” got used on one of my favorite shows last night. My goofy contribution to pop culture has now been in The Sopranos and Veep. Very deck. Vulture deemed it the “compliment of the episode:” Dan to Catherine: “You’re hip! You’re deck! Deck’s a thing, right?”

A couple of weeks back the guys at Crescere shot me an email hipping me to their latest creation; a two part compilation of super-obscure, often private press, outsider psychedelic guitar and folk music from the 60s and 70s… all with […]
