It's funny you should mention that since the most common stereotype I heard while working in food and bev (in the US) was "Europeans don't tip." I never noticed any trends with any so-called groups, but I also never focused on it.

cgod is right about tip income being taxed as I knew several waiters who were audited by the IRS. This was in the 90s so hopefully they have moved on to bigger fish.

Cool find; 8 out of 10 based on Joyce knowledge.

For me it's been:

Royal Baths Devo Electrelane Sister Vanilla

...and some ambient stuff.

Love Warpaint and never tire of The Breeders' Safari.

Reminds me of when Bowie released Never Let Me Down.

If I had asked a family member this question, "The Beatles" would be the answer.

Truly a beautiful song.

Borges Labyrinths, Cortazar's Blow Up and Other Stories, and DeLillio's Americana, all left me seeing the world if not literature in a completely new light.
