Happy End of Summer!

It has been MONTHS since I have posted and I am sorry about that! Life gets in the way, sometimes! I have been so busy here in the Atomic Universe!! So many things going on here!

The Spring started with vacation and a visit from Raymond T. Vinyl. We spent a music filled weekend perusing the Record Shops and antiquing. Then Desoto came down from Connecticut to join us for the Mechanical Music Extravaganza show where we met a bunch of other friends and found many fabulous early century records and generally marvelled at the antique phonographs! Of course we, all three, spent time with Charlie at Platter World!

Rich went home to work on his new Tiki Bar and Raymond went back to Columbus and we have our memories to last a lifetime. What a great vacation we had. While Raymond was here we had one of the Friday the 13th Art Challenges which we always broadcast live from the Atomic Universe on U-stream and it was very fun to have Raymond T.Vinyl as a guest star live in the Universe.

Hard at work on the latest Skateboard Deck pieces and there are 10 in the series so far, with more on the horizon. They are most fun to work on and I am calling them Creeples. Remaining decks are available at Tink's Atomic Universe and we know have a Facebook Atomic Universe Fan Page which you can shop directly from as well! Visit and "like" us!


Also brand new is the Atomic Universe Shop at Cafe Press where you can get Official Sideshowtink Merchandise including T-shirts, sweats, hoodies and much more! Visit here and find all things Tink:

Recently we attended the best Car Show of the year, Rust Riot, in NY state. That is always a very fun time. There was even a new Record Store that had a set up at the show! Darkside Records opened recently in Poughkeepsie NY and they brought some amazing things with them! Of course, our friends Chris and Sharon Machin were there with their Kool Freaking Creations of low brow hot rod /pinstripe artwork. Many great bands performed live including the Arkhams.

Labor Day is upon us and I am looking forward to some antiquing at the Hell's Kitchen Flea and maybe Meeker Antiques. We'll see if the weather cooperates!

Recently got some bad news in that my beloved Charlie of Platter World is very ill. Stage IV cancer. I am very upset and am spending as much time with him as I possibly can while I still have him. I want to absorb all his knowledge about vintage records!! He is going on 86 years old and has been an avid collector for 70 years! No one has taught me more about 78's and I have to say that at least 90% of my near 5000 78's have come from him!

I am looking forward to the Autumn and then, of course, our Yule celebrations! Hope you are all well. Hugs, Love & Light, Tink ♥
