Tonight's gonna be legendary, man. Let's just see what flows...

Ginsburg is a character in Girl Meets World. He is Farkle's great grandfather and Stuart Minkus' grandfather or possibility his grandfather in-law. it is not specified whether Ginsburg is his first name or surname.


Ginsburg had brown floppy hair that covered his forehead, with a scraggly Beatnik goatee. He had blue eyes, and wore black horn-rimmed glasses. He dressed in typical hippy garb of the era, a black turtleneck with a brown striped vest, leather sandals, and faded multicolored pants, topped by a black béret


Ginsburg was an open friendly person who was rarely without his camera, and was eager to snap pictures at every opportunity. However, Ginsburg, himself, avoided being photographed, which was a peculiar habit for a stage performer, as he was wont to recite his own poems at Café Hey, between announcing the other performing acts.

Rosie chose the girl whose name Ginsburg would shortly call out, May Clutterbucket, as she was set to perform. The next singer he called, Merlin Scoggins, a cowboy dressed in black, briefly sat with Rosie and May after he finished his song. By some unknown impulse, Ginsburg felt compelled to reach for his camera and capture

the meeting of the Observer, the Singer, and the Mystery Man for posterity, commenting that the moment had to be "worth something to somebody one day." It would take over fifty years, but that person would in fact, be his own great grandson, Farkle Minkus, and he found it as a priceless treasure to share with his own friends, who by some cosmic coincidence, happened to be the great grandchildren of Rosie, May, and Merlin.

Black. White. Green. Tan.
No one listen to the man.
Freedom is the only plan.
Free to be who you am.
Can't you see?
That  you... are... me?
