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.

working from home & mixing FMU with the Argentina match.... great soundtrack to that ARG goal at 77:00.....
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:06am still b/p:

Happily ready for verdancy.
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:08am truffie:

will there be a tribute to the recently departed diaper man?
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:21am north guinea hills:

wow, Argentina pulled away at the end. 4-1.
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:21am still b/p:

Evora's song was one of those tracks in which period recording quality is a mo' better evocative pleasure.
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:22am annie:

  Thu. 6/17/10 9:22am cordesc:

  Thu. 6/17/10 9:27am MAS:

thank you for the music!
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:34am BSI:

4-1 arg. yep. the Higuain hat trick was tremendous.
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:34am catpatz:

germany scored 4 against australia
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:34am v k:

1000 Volts of Holt! (great album cover)
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:34am Chris from DC:

Germany scored four on Australia I think.
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:35am krebstar:

Germany wooped some ass.. they scored 4 goals in their first game
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:36am BSI:

that australia match was a slaughter
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:38am krebstar:

this is cool...
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:41am it's because:

slaughter.. ya.. but in australia's defense (not sure why..) they got that bogus red card that put them a man down with 20 or 30 minutes left..
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:43am BSI:

extremely bogus red card.
I know the judgements are harsher in the Cup, but that was just wacky.
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:48am v k:

so long as a country advances, group play is mere cocktails
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:49am Cecile:

Who was that krazy kora kat? That was awesome.
Especially since I missed Tiniwaren last night.
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:49am Lewis:

Go Trouble!
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:52am Cecile:

I am rooting for NZ big time.
Although I was bummed at the lack of a haka before the game...
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:53am Cecile:

I thought she was singing "fantasy camp"
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:55am Tuck:

Oh god, been looking for Fantasic Cat forever!
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:55am still b/p:

bummed haka lack-a-lacka
bummed haka lack-a-lacka
bummed haka lack-a-lacka
  Thu. 6/17/10 9:57am Cecile:

I bow to you.

  Thu. 6/17/10 10:03am βrian:

Greetings from Madison. Getting hopped up on our second consecutive day of sun.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:09am Lewis:

Brian - I too am listening in Madison and enjoying the sun
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:10am βrian:

I recall listening to the radio for several hours late one night, without interruption. Really nice. There was a bird theme there, too. Messiaen.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:11am chris:

Oh man, this was when I stopped liking the cars
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:11am Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh, man, I have not heard this horrible song in so many years!! Hello...Hello, again...yuk!!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:12am Cecile:

I still like "Drive" though.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:12am MAS:

verrry koot!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:13am dc pat:

Ah, Messiaen..I gotta admit, Bryce turned me on to him. I have to listen to more of the bird stuff...
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:13am Ken From Hyde Park:

Did someone from The Cars die recently? I think WFMU played one of their songs yesterday. Most WFMU DJs don't play them normally.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:14am Dead Corporate Eyes:

that'll show 'em
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:14am chris:

Oh that is true Drive is a great song
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:15am Tuck:

now it sounds right, FMU..
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:15am jsteffey@amnh.org:

Hello Trouble!

All I think of with this song is Diane Brill in that video with jello spelling out HELLO across her chest.

What a weird image to start the day!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:18am it's because:

this is perfect
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:19am trouble:

hello js! are you a happy cowboy this morning?
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:19am listener stu:

Hi Trouble ! BIG news around here these days. It's the Summer Solstice ( but the official celebration isn't until next weekend ) Swedish royal wedding , Princess Victoria. AND.......Finland will have a new Prime Minister next week ....Mari Kiviniemi .... so we'll have a female President and female Prime Minister! How's them apples ? Silver Apples ! I bought their first album when it was new ( 40 years ago ???? yikes ) Cheers!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:22am Jennique - a.k.a JS!:

Hey Trouble -

Indeed a happy cowboy after many playings! White Gardenia still my favorite track.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:22am mb:

Thanks for the dubby Trubby! Sun is shining.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:23am listener mark:

Good Morning Trouble,
Good Morning Everyone.
The "lay down " by susan cadogan was smooth and sweet. Thanks Trouble.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:25am still b/p:

I remember when WBCN Boston switched from playing the Cars nice demo tape to the finished first album. Oy...too much, boys, too much studio mishigas.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:29am Dead Corporate Eyes:

Mazzy Star still rules. I love Hope!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:30am Adrian in London:

Hey Cecie, did you see the interview Narduwar did with Johnny Weir during rhe Olympics? It's on Narduwar's site and is well worth checking out.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:31am em:

with you all the way, DCE. MZ and hope never get old.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:32am Cecile:

No, but I will check it out.
I can only imagine the magic!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:34am annie:

  Thu. 6/17/10 10:34am Cecile:

That's great, annie!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:35am annie:

morning cecile!!!!! and all you wonderful fmu-ers
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:37am MAS:

whos the bird singing trouble?
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:38am krebstar:

digitize and ditch - recycle (ebay where possible)
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:38am mark:

its an ostrich
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:38am Maggie:

Ms. T - have a yard sale! It's such a fun way to recycle. Someone's gonna want your old tapes. I'm having a yard sale Saturday.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:39am Dead Corporate Eyes:

EM, is that the EM I know and love, or are you another EM?
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:39am Adrian in London:

Throw out the cassettes. They're no good. They're rotten. Give them to idiot hipsters with stupid haircuts. Mind you, I do have two huge boxes of them in the garage. ABout 40 live Japan shows there and I can't get rid of them, can I?
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:39am emily and patrick:

bring them to maine as a 4th of july gift for emily and patrick. our new car has a cassette player!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:39am MAS:

no!!! how does an ostrich gets to america=
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:40am bryan:

It's super easy to digitize your mixtapes. I do think the meaningful ones should be kept, though. What will it hurt? Then again, as a historian I spend all my time in archives reading and loving all the things people in the past refused to throw away.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:40am catpatz:

greece is losing to nigeria 0 - 1
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:40am Leigh:

Ah, mix tapes. Those were the days. Even mix cd's. Now it's mix mp3 zip files, but it's not the same.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:40am Dead Corporate Eyes:

cassettes still rule and will remain after your digitized media pass away
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:40am Cecile:

MAS, they farm 'em here.
Terminator X actually has an ostrich farm in Virgina.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:40am seang:

and one of Nigeria's players got a Red Card
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:40am BSI:

1-0 nigeria. Really stupid redcard offense just now for NGA
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:41am BSI:

seang = faster!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:41am chris:

I inherited my Grandma's Buick for a few years recently and dusted off my cassettes and started listening to them in the car. They sounded so good!!!! I know it is a cliche but they sounded so inviting and warm and organic. Do not throw them away Trouble! I have already thrown some away which I regret... I know I am living in denial and I need to throw some more out but it seems so wrong.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:41am MAS:

ok cecile, but not a natural one in the studio sitted with trouble!!??
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:42am Jennique:

I am in the same mixed tape dilemma. I bought some software to convert them to mp3s through my stereo. Still have yet to crack open the box to do it. Half my mixed tapes don't even have track listings. Dilemma indeed.
I read an article that a Generation X man had his son listen to an old school cassette playing walkman for one week. His son did not know what the METAL switch meant (thinking it had to do with the music genre) and did not realize it automatically flipped over the tape until a few days into it. Funny stuff.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:43am Cecile:

No, but that would be cool, MAS.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:43am Brian C.:

Because we're moving this summer, I'm going through the same agony with my cassettes. Had about 300--tried to weed em put--maybe tossed 20. And I don't even have a functioning cassette deck. Do have music-appreciating kids so, mebbe I'll keep em.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:43am MAS:

  Thu. 6/17/10 10:43am dc pat:

overall the officiating at WC has been good but the RSA goal keeper got sent off yesterday for basically touching another player. Penalty sure but red card??
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:44am listener stu:

I want a North Korea jersey ! they so crazy
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:45am seang:

Yeah for Greece, they just scored!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:45am barney:

now 1-1 GRE-NGA
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:45am BSI:

yeh, there's been a few of those, DCP. Hell there was even a piece in some major media outlet about foreign officials getting educated on English cursing - to keep a watch on more spirited players like Rooney etc. ... oh hell, goal for greece...
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:46am dc pat:

ah crap, GO NIGERIA!!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:47am mb:

I'm in the middle of the same project, Trouble. What software are you using. I'm using a cheap Intil from Radio Shack. Good results so far. Cassettes, FTW!
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:48am dc pat:

if the ref just let's the game go without interfering, you see fewer dives and players get more serious.

I broke out a demo cassette from my last band the other day and it sounded like it was under water--not sure if it was the tape or the deck... I have to transfer all my cassettes to HD.
  Thu. 6/17/10 10:48am Adrian in London:

RE: football. This is a great piece about the pathetic level of punditry. (via Graham 'Father Ted' Lineham's Twitter feed) http://thescotsman.scotsman.com/sport/Tom-English-39The-level-of.6364084.jp

  Thu. 6/17/10 11:09am Cecile:

Oh, annie...I'm so sorry to hear that.
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:09am Dead Corporate Eyes:

I will never give anything away. I will eventually be crushed under the weight of collected media. And I will enjoy it.
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:10am Cecile:

I have been selling CDs like crazy. Been dumping the middling ones on the hard drive, then taking them to sell.
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:10am fishmonkeystew:

Yo, Trouble. I wanted to tell you that the CocoRosie show was just as wacky as you said it would be. Wicked cool, as we New Englanders are prone to say.
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:11am holland oats:

i need more female jazz vocals in my life. that and boogaloo.
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:12am annie:

  Thu. 6/17/10 11:13am Leigh:

Yes, this Bill Dixon is gorgeous
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:13am trouble:

yikes annie, i hope you are giving them to your favorite radio station....
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:16am annie:

they wouldn't take em
donations to radio of old vinyl... fmu said no and so did the station up in maine. handed them over to a guy who sold them at a flea market. he said he'd pay me if he made any to send... i have four cases still here if you want them trouble...
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:18am annie:

  Thu. 6/17/10 11:21am still b/p:

annie, if you want donation options, you can check WMPG, community radio at USM in Portland. If they don't use them, they'll sell 'em at the annual record fair to earn
some operatin' money.

  Thu. 6/17/10 11:25am MAS:

  Thu. 6/17/10 11:48am sugarwolf:

I think the Trouble & Tamar power block will sound awesome!

If you listen to the internet stream, it's nine full hours of women DJs which is super cool.
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:50am listener gary:

Loretta lynn ...that reminds me...whatever happened to Laura cantrell? Great music today miss trouble.
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:52am annie:

sugarwolf, i totally concur; it has to be the best day of music there ever was!! i love tamar's show....i've been a fan of hers for forever..this is a great gift we are being offered.
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:54am Pete:

Out here on teh Internets, We likes the Santogolds.
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:55am Cecile:

Trouble - a movie for you:
C.R.A.Z.Y. - a Quebec film about a family of 5 boys, one gay (it's his story). It's fabulous - Montreal in the 70s, Bowie, poutine, Catholic mysticism, Charles Aznavour ,and Patsy Cline all figure heavily as plot points.
  Thu. 6/17/10 11:56am annie:

oooohhhhh... cecile... i'm writing that on my mental notepad
  Thu. 6/17/10 12:05pm MAS:
