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.

why, thank you parq!

We're enjoying the warmest day of sunshine of the year so far here in London after suffering several grey weeks.

good to hear nathan, then this song goes out to london!
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:27am Nathan:

I had just put that Bee Gees song on a compilation for a drive to Somerset on Saturday... without having heard of Robin Gibbs passing.
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:28am Brian in UK:

Good day trouble, mid morning it was like someone turned on the sun now 30C. Crazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/12 9:31am trouble:

that's me brian, i am thinking sun and i guess i misfired the heat your way
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:32am Nathan:

Brian, let's not over-egg the pudding. It's about 6 degrees shy of 30 out.
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:33am Nathan:

Isn't it odd that Lizzy Mercier Descloux not only wrote a song about tumours but died of one as well...
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:34am Brian in UK:

Thanks trouble, I'll try & reverse the thoughts.
Nathan, my car just read 30c. Honest.

Hi, all.
My husband had a succinct solution to last week's discussion as he is an uncomplicated man:
"If they are assholes and alive, don't give them your money. Don't subsidize assholes. If they are dead, who cares? Except for Hitler..."
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:46am pierre:

J'adore cette chanson !
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:47am emily:

nice to hear you "live" trouble. so much of the time it is only through archive. live is better--so exciting--don't know what is going to come next! thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/12 9:48am trouble:

hello emily! then you and I are now in the same boat!
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:49am Cecile:

that is an adorable drawing, but there is something a little twisted about it. My eyes keep going to that vase....!
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:50am pierre:

each time i have the pleasure to hear your morning shows, it seems like mornings fits you well, but i'm no one to tell, i love mornings anyway.

ooh, francaise is being spoken on this list...bonjour tout le monde. je travaille dans mon office mail la musique de DJ TROUBLE est supercool (someone told me that latter word was a biggie in france some yrs bk). and, if there's any german speaking people, i once told our teacher "ich bin ein amerikaneschen fusbalspieler".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/12 9:53am trouble:

true pierre, i do like to do this show in the morning. odd...perhaps if we could just all meet in my kitchen while i was still drinking coffee and start the tunes from there!
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:54am Cecile:

do a remote!
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:56am Cecile:

Oh, I love this song. And Lee Dorsey
  Tue. 5/22/12 9:59am pierre:

That would be a nice idea, a homemade show, from each different room of a wfmu dj's house… with themes !

@herb : "supercool" is still a fav word of mine. "chanmé" as well, which is reverse slang for "méchant" that you could translate by "wicked" in english.
  Tue. 5/22/12 10:02am Adrian in London:

Morning all. When Trouble plays her birdsong records, why not get a visual interpretation of said fowl, with LEGO??!!! http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/gallery/2012/may/18/birds-made-from-lego-in-pictures
  Tue. 5/22/12 10:04am Cecile:

méchant was also a line of colorful, boxy clothes sold at the nordstrom department store. I had a few pieces from them back in the day...
  Tue. 5/22/12 10:09am pierre:

@Cecile : were they wicked clothes?
  Tue. 5/22/12 10:10am Cecile:

Last week there was a Kusama picture at the top of the playlist. If you're in London I urge you to see the exhibition at Tate Modern. It's exciting and moving and invigorating, and the room of infinite mirrors will have you grinning like a kid for ages.

  Tue. 5/22/12 10:24am stu:

zoom over here in July! cheap flights to london (9 euros ! ) no need for a hotel or restaurants ...can't beat that, Trub
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/12 10:24am trouble:

just got sucked into the namesake by jhumpa lahiri, has anyone read any of her books?
  Tue. 5/22/12 10:33am Cecile:

no, but I heard the movie was good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/22/12 10:35am trouble:

wha? 9 euros to fly from finland to london?? crazzzee. why don't i live on that planet?
  Tue. 5/22/12 10:38am Adrian in London:

Because then you have to pay an extra 20 euros if you want to take a case, and extra €10 departure tax, and your 'London' airport will be somewhere in the Lake District. Or France.

it costs 9 euros to take a bridge or tunnel into manhatta...

a (good) sandwich may cost 9 € in the center of Paris.
  Tue. 5/22/12 10:48am patrick:

good morning, loving the show so far. i am with you 100% about the Personal Space comp. hope we see a vol 2 and vol 3 in the future.
  Tue. 5/22/12 10:50am Adrian in London:

Yes Pierre, but I've been looking at the cost of going to Stockholm. Fish and chips in a cafe, about €22. :(
  Tue. 5/22/12 10:50am Adrian in London:

Oh Trouble, I've just seen you've played Hall of Mirrors: glad you liked it.

Hey Trouble, late checkin' in but loving this Whole Foods Parking Lot song. True, true.

Prounced "Kee-nya" I take it? I've actually eaten that, I just didn't know how to pronounce it. All hail the mighty FMU comment field knowledge base.
  Tue. 5/22/12 11:12am Adrian in London:

@Jennique Don;t they just? At job interviews they should just ask you if you like Lego, and if any applicant says they don't, the boss should just say, thanks for your interest, but you're not who we're looking for.
  Tue. 5/22/12 11:15am Priscilla:

pronounced "keen-wah" for some reason :-)
  Tue. 5/22/12 11:20am Jennique:

Adrian, I think job applications should be filled out in LEGO. Possibly a self portrait in LEGO, interests, etc. There was an ad campaign back in the day for Eggo frozen waffles, where the slogan was LEGGO MY EGGO. They should seriously consider ads of Eggo waffles made of LEGOs.
Other idea, since I work at a natural history museum, swap out all the dioramas of taxidermy animals for Lego ones, see who notices.
  Tue. 5/22/12 11:20am coelacanth:

(& technically not a grain,but a fruit.)..(i'm pretty sure)

quinoa is the yummiest, give it a try. trader joes has it now. super food, hails from the inca!
  Tue. 5/22/12 11:26am Adrian in London:

@Brian @Jennique Duplo? Only if you're three! So that's where Mercury Rev's Leggo my Ego comes from? I saw a great lego exhibition in Vancouver a while back, all about Egypt. There was a Duplo Sphynx, and a river scene in which a lego crocodile could be seat grabbing a little cat from the edge of the water!
  Tue. 5/22/12 11:27am Parq:

I would stand in line all day to get into Natural History and see all the animal dioramas re-done in Legos.

Dang, it's a Flickr page. My strangely Orwelian work puter is convinced that Flickr will warp my mind and destroy my work ethic. If it only knew how much work time I spend tapping out missives to the FMU comment field.
  Tue. 5/22/12 11:33am Jennique:

Adrian: wow, that was a really clever Egyptian set up of Lego!
Parq: looks like I have my work cut out for me. If only there was a way I could sneak in a smaller Lego animal in with all the non Lego ones. A little subversive vandalism a la banksy. All in good fun. Speaking of which, I did get to see his installation in the museum I work in up close and personal, called withus/oragainstus. Glad the guards did not throw it out!

Thanks Cecile! I know, that write up was really wonderful. Just knowing that both Francoise and Nadja looked at it was enough. Hope to hand them a card tonight in person if possible.
