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.

True story: One night in high school I was hanging out with a friend when another friend showed up, unannounced, with a chocolate cake and a stack of death metal CDs. Once he finished sampling each of them for us, we made him listen to Philosophy of the World in its entirety. This feels like a full-circle moment.
