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.

Listener comments!

  Tue. 12/6/11 9:04am trouble:

good grey green tuesday!
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:05am jamesie:

Good morning Balthus lovers everywhere!
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:07am the glowing one:

good day, what's that picture supposed to mean, and what's that music supposed to mean?
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:07am ffrr:

Good morning and happy birthday St. Nicholas & Dave Brubeck.
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:07am Nathan:

I thought this was a track from Terry Riley's Shri Camel...
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:12am trouble:

  Tue. 12/6/11 9:14am jamesie:

how unaware we are interelating with each other however close the proximity? Surrealist landscape ... bla blather. The mountain
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:16am seang:

check out that figure on the upper right mountain
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:21am trouble:

the composition is amazing, the colors are stunning and yes, none of the humans are interacting with each other! metaphor for our modern day? the artist is Balthus, one wackadoodle artist dude, love his work despite the personality that created it.
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:23am Snortley:

Balthus lovers? Where? If he had had a lover, maybe he would have painted differently!
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:26am Josh:

Wonder who's playing conga on this carol king tune. I wonder if she's singing about Canaan, CT in the Berkshires.
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:26am Josh:

Sorry for the multiple posts. Darn iPhone app. Slow to respond. Maybe Trouble can edit the listener comments?
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:27am Elisabeth:

what was that song you just played that sounded like Darkel? I was in the car and now rushing to school.
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:34am Lucky:

Beautiful first set. Unbelievably great.
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:36am trouble:

done josh, no biggie. elisabeth are you talking about the donna regina perhaps?
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:37am trouble:

thanks lucky!
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:38am Lucky:

Yes! Better with the surface noise somehow....
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:38am JT:

liii i y yi yiyhght
you will find
the road
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:39am Luciano:

must be a 1975 vinyl :D
Cheers from Italy!
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:39am Jennique:

Morning Trouble! Stunning painting. Impressions of things I like in it: the sharp diagonal across the skirt, rock formation next to man in red looks like a man itself, faces in the rocks, twisted wrist of man with pipe, reclining woman's legs look artificial - perhaps stricken with polio, and lastly what is the couple pointing at?
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:40am Lewis:

Love! the painting at the head of the playlist - can't remember much about it, but saw a show by the painter at the met long ago....
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:42am Lucky:

Jennique! There is a lot to look at and now you've given me more. Hope your car is OK.
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:43am pierre:

Bonjour Trouble !
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:44am trouble:

buon giorno luciano! led zeppelin on vinyl, of course!!
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:44am jamesie:

Hi Lucky - Thelonius
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:45am trouble:

howdy jennique! balthus and girls legs....o yes, always odd
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:47am trouble:

good afternoon jamesie!
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:47am Lewis:

as I recall some of his other paintings are disturbingly odd, which is probably shy I like them...
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:48am Jennique:

Thanks for putting the name of the artist up there. Did a quick search of Balthus and never realized I own a t-shirt with one of his paintings on it:
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:48am Lucky:

Awesome segue (sp?). Hi Jamesie!
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:49am glenn:

a/ the guy in the front is looking for d.b. cooper.
b/ the woman in gray is doing her sun salutations.
c/ the woman on the ground is wishing she'd worn flats.
d/ the guy or girl in the back ( i can't tell) just wants the picnic he or she was promised.
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:50am jamesie:

wotcher mates
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:55am Brian in UK:

Hello trouble. Like the background, kind of compliments the pictures. Some picture frames in galleries are so florid & unsympathetic to the picture.
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:55am JT:

morning, Amy Camus
  Tue. 12/6/11 9:57am Jennique:

Lucky, Agnes the car is running and still leaking I suppose. I looked under it when parked on the street and no large puddles of oil were there. All parties are aware of the situation. Agnes will get a tuneup this week, I'm pretty sure.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:01am Lucas:

Hi, I came just to say this is beautiful. Thanks Trouble. Bye.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:01am glenn:

you might want to check and make sure there's still oil in the motor, i'm thinkin'
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:02am jamesie:

daydream = superb. Staring at The Mountain.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:02am glenn:

because, if you're leaking that much, you might need something more than a tuneup, as in a head gasket or such.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:02am trouble:

thanks lucas! bye
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:02am trouble:

helloe brian in the UK
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:06am SueA:

What Would Kenny G Do?
Play that song for 3 hours.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:07am the glowing one:

the facebook virus has spread a little more and claimed another victim
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:07am SueA:

@glenn: what about the couple in the distance?
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:09am Jennique:

Glenn - you are right. Agnes is an old car, circa 1989. Many of her parts need a-fixin'.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:11am JT:

The couple in the distance are looking at an image of the Virgin Mary that has appeared in the rock face.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:11am glenn:

the couple in the distance are mechanics waiting for jennique to bring agnes in for repairs.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:12am trouble:

it's true the glowing one, i do fell like i've been infected. but i succembed as a way for peeps to conncet good reads, songs, things to do , recipes etc....any old fab thing that peeps want to share. only fab of course, no sour tarts encouraged.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:12am glenn:

or what jt said.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:13am jamesie:

The guy in the foreground just spoken on his mobile to the garage, heard it was a crankshaft oil seal beariing and $1200 labour. *really pissed*
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:13am Jennique:

The couple are looking at Agnes crashed at the bottom of the canyon after Jennique pushed it over the edge.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:16am Adrian in London:

What a verdant-coloured playlist this week. This Balthus would make a good jigsaw puzzle (he said, loweing the tone).
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:16am bitter bassist:

...is trying to remember which band posed for a pic that mimicked the painting on today's column...
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:16am bitter bassist:

column, playlist, whatever
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:18am Jennique:

Bow Wow Wow posed after a Manet painting, Dejeuner sur l'herbe.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:19am jamesie:

  Tue. 12/6/11 10:20am Angela:

Is anyone going to see Jane Birkin at Town Hall on Sunday?! We could have a meet-up!! I am not sure about the opening act but am excited for Birkin singing Gainsbourg!! Angela!!
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:22am trouble:

hey angela!
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:22am trouble:

good day adrian!
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:22am bitter bassist:

definitely not Bow Wow Wow, but the era and UK area seems about right
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:23am Angela:

HI! I loved my thank you note. I am keeping on my desk! Are you going to Jane Birkin?? A
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:25am bitter bassist:

I think the pic I'm remembering was a from an 80s NME article featuring the Cocteau Twins, posed as the three in the foreground
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:25am Luciano:

Neil Ardley's New Jazz Orchestra borrowed the title too :)
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:28am trouble:

  Tue. 12/6/11 10:30am glenn:

i once went into a bookstore and asked for a copy of last exit to brooklyn by hubert sumlin. in my own defense, i had been listening to howlin' wolf nonstop for about a month
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:31am Angela:

OK will do!! XOA!
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:33am kayt:

  Tue. 12/6/11 10:33am Nordens fåglar:

excellent songs for a first-snow-of-the-year-day, sitting here reading schumacher and watching the birds fly past my window, nf /sweden
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:35am nycmark:

someone should open a restaurant called Country Bouffant Buffet.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:35am glenn:

maybe joe belock can bring you a grilled cheese.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:39am Cecile:

Trouble, could you play some kind of sassy soul lady singing about how she is going to roll over her wicked ex with a steamroller or something? Muchas gracias.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:39am Brian in UK:

Nordens Is that Schumaker as in 'Snow in Beautiful'?
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:39am Robert in Amsterdam:

Hi trouble, It's always nice listening to your records!
How can I find you on facebook, i don't find it on your site?
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:41am jamesie:

I was warned you get food poisioning from that cafe round the corner from the station. Its got great venerable waitresses there who look cross but are really lovely. Is it still there?
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:42am jen v.:

if you mean the flamingo, jamesie, i believe that's dead and gone. :(
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:43am trouble:

hey do sweden! bom dia kayt! abrigado. robert the facebook link is https://www.facebook.com/pages/This-is-the-modern-world-with-Trouble/138976469534262. does that not work?
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:45am Cecile:

THANK YOU. Voodoo is awesome.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:46am jamesie:

yeah the Flamingo... where all the cops and firefighters had breakfast. that was 4 years ago.. :(
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:46am Cecile:

Does Mo Jo Hanna do consulting work?
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:47am trouble:

i thought voodoo might work...it always does!
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:47am Cecile:

I think organizational development needs more actual voodoo in it.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:47am Cecile:

thanks, Trouble!
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:48am trouble:

flamingO is RIP
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:49am still b/p:

Google voodoo altars images and ya got your org. models right there.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:51am Cecile:

Or google "organizational development theory" and you're got your voodoo right there.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:52am glenn:

when i read that, i thought there was a new google thing called google voodoo.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:54am still b/p:

Waiting for Goodoo.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:54am Cecile:

* totally digging the music ! *
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:57am Jennique:

Do you hear what I hear? Christmas in Malawi! When can I go?
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:57am bruceleh:

Working from home today, so I can't stream WFMU without major impact on remote desktop usability. Listening to WFMU on the air, in Brooklyn, lots of static, but a bad WFMU signal is still a treasure!
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:58am Cecile:

I'm hoping for a Slayer Christmas album this year.
  Tue. 12/6/11 10:58am nycmark:

I once launched a web service called gootodo and everyone thought it was a google product.
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:01am trouble:

bonjour pierre! hello bruceleh in brroklyn
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:01am Robert in Amsterdam:

Yesss, the link works, thanks with love Robert

  Tue. 12/6/11 11:04am trouble:

hey maja!
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:04am pierre:

Bonjour Trouble !

Bonjour listeners extraordinaires & fantastiques !

(the comment board to fast, my first "bonjour" was sucked in the void of the scrolling bar…)
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:05am Caryn:

The couple in the back is arguing over a rock formation previously painted by Georgia O'Keeffe. "Does it really look like a vagina or not?" seems to be the main point of debate.
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:05am Scrolling Bar Void:


  Tue. 12/6/11 11:06am peter:

Bom Dia from Seattle!
Thanks for old Balthus this morning!
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:07am Caryn:

yep, scrolling bar void = modern-day Bermuda Triangle
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:09am (deep voice):

only on W.F.M.U uuuuu
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:11am Caryn:

Just started my protest dancing. This track is easy enough to move to, but any more danceable tracks coming up, or should I start trawling through the archives?
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:12am pierre:

  Tue. 12/6/11 11:12am trouble:

hey peter!
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:13am dance master:

Occupas de deux!
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:15am #K:

  Tue. 12/6/11 11:17am nycmark:

Second that. Psyched to wake up and find out it was Tuesday.. time for trouble
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:17am trouble:

  Tue. 12/6/11 11:20am trouble:

merci bien nycmark
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:23am blip:

"Oooh babe.... don't leave me know"
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:23am blip:

ahem... "now"
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:23am still b/p:

Is anyone else getting the occasional small sharp digi-garble sneezes that last just a fraction of a second? I've had the condition for weeks now -- 128mp3 stream on Real Player. It's never enough to disrupt the music, but it's odd. A voodoo revenge spell...?
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:26am Lewis:

@ still b/p - I think I have experienced that. I have also lost the scroll on the iTunes mini player (but that could be a configuration problem on my end...)
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:28am pierre:

@still b/p: i do have that sometime, on rare occasion, maybe once or twice a day on a 24h/24 wfmu day.

On the other hand, when i listen to the archives (take Scott William's one for example) i always end hearing the four or five first songs, then… nothing. How come? Does somebody know?
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:28am hamburger:

just poppin' by to say how awesome this woom track is.. okay toodles!
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:29am trouble:

cheers, hamburger!
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:30am Dave B:

busy day at work for me, the archives it shall be!
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:32am yayson:

you have my attention now!
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:34am still b/p:

No, pierre -- I don't think my archive swims have ever gone dry early, but it's a question you can put to FMU's Stream Team via email.
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:41am Cecile:

maja, you made my day. That is amazing.
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:44am Angela:

Pierre! I had that problem too with some of Trouble's shows! The stream stopped after a few tracks! I listen to the archives on the pop-up player. I wrote to the stream team and told them which shows were messed up and they fixed them right away! I was impressed.
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:47am maja:

ah cecile you saw it ! yes big fun
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:50am pierre:

@ Angela : well, allright, this is very helpful. I'll do that.
Merci beaucoup!

(although almost every of them were having problems… well we'll see.)
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:50am Cecile:

The work that went into it!
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:50am Mike East:

I've only heard the Os Mutantes version of this - who wrote it ("baby")?
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:51am zach in philly:

mmm Shabazz Palaces then Gal Costa...loving this playlist
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:52am Jennique:

Cecile - i watched that video and was truly inspired to have a Slayer Christmas. Thanks for sharing!
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:53am glenn:

Songwriters: JEAN/DUPLESSIS/HARRIS. whoever they are. maybe google songwriter would be a good thing.
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:54am trouble:

hey mike east, caetano wrote baby
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:56am trouble:

thanks for all the good vibes today listeners extrodinaire! ciao
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:56am Mike East:

I love that song. Thanks.
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:56am Jennique:

Oops - video credit goes to Maja. Thanks just the same.
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:57am glenn:

on the other hand, what trouble said. i can't believe the internets were wrong.
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:58am Brian in UK:

Didja see the drummer on the same page? Classy.
  Tue. 12/6/11 11:59am Brian in UK:

Ska today & gone tomorrow. Top job, trouble.
  Tue. 12/6/11 12:00pm zach in philly:
