Grammar’s In The Cellar

By Dave Tompkins at 3:56pm ET

I acquired The Punctuator in a junk yard in Burbank back in 1995. You walk through a maze  of chewed-up cars, a scrap tunnel, and into a wall of used books and records.

Hello, mangy Chas Wright “High As Apple Pie, Part II” that skips at the Gang Starr and Large Pro parts, all scuffed to Baconator catfuck hell.

Hello, The Punctuator.

The Punctuator was used for a—um, err, (horn section blurt!) (Freestyle keyboard eructation!)—5,000 word story I wrote on stabs for a 1939 issue of Weird Tales/Tuba Frenzy.
