A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  Thu. 12/17/09 9:04am Adrian in London:

Silver? It's a rather pathetic whiteout here in South London? A 20-second snowstorm. Hello to all and glad you're back, Trouble.
  Thu. 12/17/09 9:04am texas scott:

great to have you back in the dj chair.

  Thu. 12/17/09 9:58am trouble:

more wood thrush for the gentleman from madison! and yes ask your boss to leave but do it in finnish, it's more polite.
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:01am dc pat:

is it acceptable to ask my boss for an office?
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:02am dale:

morning trouble - still waiting for the condensation to evaporate from the windows of my country den. the mike heron warmed me up nicely though.
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:03am trouble:

  Thu. 12/17/09 10:13am Brian:

Yes, the black-capped chickadee. Love 'em.

  Thu. 12/17/09 10:31am Cecile:

Trouble, if you have some Marlene Dietrich, that would be great...
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:33am Adrian in London:

Hon, I'm in south London, Hackney Wick might as well be in Middlesbrough for me… I get a headache if I go north of Highbury Corner.

And yes, that Big Blood track was amazing.
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:33am calumny:

a touching cover of "she sells sanctuary", followed by "fairest of the seasons"... plus there was "wax and wane"... are you out to make broad swathes of gen x cry in their cubicles... *sniff*
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:35am zazani:

between that and the hs kids' grandmother.whatever happened to salem 66 is that a possibility?
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:36am Rex:

I was about to open my wrists like Christmas presents, until Nico followed by Delta Blues gave me a reason to live past lunchtime.
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:38am Carmichael:

Mornin' Trouble and fellow Trouble-Seekers. I'm with Cecile; this is the last day before the last day before vacation. Gotta do actual work.
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:38am Kat:

Rex - ME TOO.
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:39am Cecile:

I got that as an early Xmas present for my husband and he loves it. It's great!
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:42am thecleef:

This is my CHOICE Neon Indian song! Good Choice
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:44am Cecile:

I mean the dust to digital christmas collection.
I also got him a John Waters Christmas which is also pretty cool.
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:48am texas scott:

yes,cecile.the john waters christmas IS cool!
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:49am trs:

J'aime ou j'emmerde ?
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:49am Carmichael:

I think Mr. Waters will be in everybody's sock this year.
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:49am Cecile:

the liner notes are almost as good as the music. That guy needs a radio show.
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:52am texas scott:

yes he does.
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:54am Cecile:

he lives in NYC, doesn't he? Just sayin'.
  Thu. 12/17/09 10:58am 55rpm:

  Thu. 12/17/09 11:01am Cecile:

I will hear you on NYE, trouble.
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:05am Maria D:

Is the Big Star box set worth the money?
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:06am Cecile:

I love Talladega Nights. And Elf.
And Anchorman.

great stuff. I noes, I'm lowbrow.
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:06am Maria D:

Oh, Trouble just answered my question. Guess I need to splurge.
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:06am Carmichael:

I enjoy all the old claymation Christmas programs, as well as the Dr. Seuss Grinch show, which was on last night.
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:06am DF:

I thought you said you were not doing a "urine" special. I guess that's a Rhode Island accent?
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:07am Chris:

Ephemeral Artery is like the best title ever.
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:08am Elias:

Elf! That movie made me freeze my ass off! They were filming on the Queensboro Bridge (with NO advance warning) and I had to wait on my bicycle in the cold for half an hour! I hate that movie!
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:12am thecleef:

Ephemeral Artery is great, I also like Ephemeral Exhibits by Starkey
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:15am trouble:

RI accent: that sure is a possibility...
is the big star box worth it? YES. but check around the web you can find it for less than the 70 clams...
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:19am dc pat:

hmm, I haven't checked out a new Xmas movie in years. Elf, huh? Anything that pisses Elias off that much must be good...
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:19am Cecile:

ooooh! Do you have the King by Steelye Span? It was a British folk song sung while people walked a dead bird in state from door to door to hasten the coming of spring around Christmas time.
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:20am Carmichael:

Wow, does Shirley Collins ever bring back memories .....
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:20am Cecile:

It's like a Wicker Man Holiday Special...
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:20am dale:

shirley must have really influenced jaqui mcshee of pentangle - so similar!
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:21am Carmichael:

ANY Steeleye Span or Brass Monkey would be great.
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:25am Elias:

In that case I've got a whole list of good stuff!
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:33am annie:

steeleye span's "gaudete"!!
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:39am north guinea hills:

wasn't davey graham on that shirley collin's track (or at least the rest of the album)?
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:40am Cecile:

Yes, ngh. He was on the whole record
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:41am Cecile:

I think.
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:45am trouble:

you are right cecile. It was a legendary collaboration of the two varied & great artists
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:45am north guinea hills:

jozef van wissem, always a joy live!
  Thu. 12/17/09 11:59am Adrian in London:

Such a great show today, and a lovely way of ending it.
  Fri. 12/18/09 9:26pm Aja West:

Thanks so much for rocking "Vicoden Reality" by The Mackrosoft (Waxpoetics 7). If you like this funky jazz stuff I can send you some CD's or LP's if you'd be interested in playing them or checking them out? Thanks again. Aja West.
