Top Tens of the Hoodlums’ Hall of Famers

Ah yes, case drugstore the hall of famers.\n\nHoodlums.  Each and every one of them.  Don’t let their new gigs as teachers, physician or bankers, stuff or major label big shots, or whatever  \”real job\” they have now, fool ya.  They are still hoodlums.\n\n(OK, there might be a suit or two.  We still haven’t heard from Martin, Justin, Marla, or Vinny, and we can’t find Ash or Alisa.  For all we know, they could be turning their backs on music.)\n\nAnyway, when we put the call out (read: direct video harassment) to our old friends and fellow hoods, many of them reaffirmed our faith in society by actually showing us that they were still listening to new music way into their twenties (and thirties for a couple of the former little shits, eh?).\n\nAs you can see, they cover a lot of ground… and like I said in the call out… they all do their lists differently.  Sincere thanks to all of our Hall of Famers who took the time to participate.\n\nWanna know more about these goofballs?  There’s still some info on all the hoodlums, current and past, on the hoodlums at Hoodlums page.  And now, here’s their lists (except Maria, whose lists is with Joe’s, detailed in the Top Tens of a Diverse Household blog).\n\nBy the way… Vinny, you sorry dog, where are you?  C’mon now, you OWN a record store.\n\nThe Hoodlums Hall of Famers Top Tens\n\n\n\nAmanda the Hoodlum\n\nNo suprises from me!
