Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in
their natural habitats.
Buckaroo's MercantileGenie Gore
Why art thou mayor
here?I just walked in one day, and I wanted to buy everything but
bought nothing. Then I came back and bought a couple things. I'm working my way,
slowly, through all the items.
What was the first
thing you bought?A business card holder with the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland on it.
you've bought here?I don't think I've bought anything too strange. I haven't
bought a toilet seat, but that is something you can buy here.
Strangest thing you
own, overall?I think it's pretty cool, but some people might think it's
weird. It's an acupressure mat. It's like getting acupuncture at home, without
using real needles.
obsession with nostalgia - Is it awesome?It's awesome, 'cause it's a sign that we're constantly moving
forward and changing.
Is there a distinction
to make between nostalgic and vintage?I think vintage is relishing in the past, taking all the
best things from it, and displaying them. Whereas nostalgic, I see more as
reminiscing over the past with a sadder undertone. But it really depends.
Is there anything
you're nostalgic for?Good hip-hop.
