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.

Did you see Moonrise Kingdom yet? Charming, and a Francoise Hardy record plays a role.
Avatar    Tue. 6/19/12 9:25am trouble:

yes i did, loved it, and that was a good use of francoise.
  Tue. 6/19/12 9:28am Mike East:

Good morning, WFMU. I'm on my way to the post office to pickup a package that was too large to fit in the box. I've got a good feeling I'm about to have a surplus of swag.
  Tue. 6/19/12 9:29am Cheri Pi:

Oh Mike East-that gives me so much hope!
  Tue. 6/19/12 9:30am stephaniepc:

ohhh! that gives me hope too!
  Tue. 6/19/12 9:33am Brian in UK:

You can see the 60s/70s credits on this one.
  Tue. 6/19/12 9:36am BSI:

WHAT IT IS!!!!!
First day back to reality after about 10 days away. This "working" thing is desperately weird.
  Tue. 6/19/12 9:41am βrian:

Hello from the Isthmus. It's too warm for our birds to sing.
  Tue. 6/19/12 9:47am stephaniepc:

I didn't know there was a volume 2 or 3 of women no cry! hooray!
  Tue. 6/19/12 9:50am ausmanx:

reality, hmmm... "In times long gone, when a Chinese dynasty took over the “mandate of heaven,” one of the early ceremonies carried out by the new emperor was called “the rectification of names.” The thought was that the previous dynasty had fallen into ruin in part because the gap between reality and the names for it had grown so wide."
  Tue. 6/19/12 9:50am Yvette:

i love this track!
Avatar    Tue. 6/19/12 9:50am trouble:

already too warm? yikes

  Tue. 6/19/12 10:01am pseu:

magnif track!
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:02am Brian in UK:

Is this Timon that became Tymon Dgg and fell in with the Clash?
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:05am Jennique:

"everything else comes from outer space"
including monkeys
They are DEFINITELY from outer space.
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:06am βrian:

... makes me think of the John Berger novel, Once in Europa.
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:12am Patrick:

hey trouble, has DJ Icepack ever considered changing his name this time of year to "DJ Air Quality Alert??"
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:12am carol:

Yes, Timon became Tymon Dogg "Lose This Skin" is a great song
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:15am Andrew:

Wow - you haven't played this doo-wop dub in a while!
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:16am Brian in UK:

Thanks carol, vague bells were ringing, that or it was tinntinnitus. Fear of Herge.

hello patrick! i don't know but i will ask dj icepack, his handler just dropped him off.
Avatar    Tue. 6/19/12 10:21am trouble:

andrew, i live in an imaginary world where i don't remember how or when or what i've played, glad to see someone is paying attention. i do love that song though...
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:23am dc pat:

love Rousseau..
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:24am Jennique:

When you say his handler do you mean "the hipster"?
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:25am ausmanx:

decline of the Western empires. good night all, 1 a.m. here, and there's football to be watched at 5 a.m. Australia sucks sometimes...
Avatar    Tue. 6/19/12 10:26am trouble:

of course, our handler is a hipster, they both begin with h!
Avatar    Tue. 6/19/12 10:26am trouble:

good nite australia!
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:27am Andrew:

Some songs stick in your memory, and when you hear one again you can suddenly remember exactly where you were when you last heard it.
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:27am too much coffee:

trouble: yup, that "imaginary world" is the place to be. just like many musicians have no idea how they come up with their songs...
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:27am carol:

Brian, you're welcome..your ears are just fine
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:29am too much coffee:

i'm melting at this cover, btw
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:30am Patrick:

Emily and i were just talking the other day about how much we miss the Gazette... maybe the chicken story could be a great way to restart the project. if Icepack does not like "Air Quality Alert" how about "DJ Its Not the Heat its the Humidity"
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:33am Van in DC:

Here for Side B of the show - hi there trouble!
Avatar    Tue. 6/19/12 10:34am trouble:

Hey trouble, one of my knitting friends/local shop owners owns chickens
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:37am dc pat:

"why would I want to change it" brilliant. DJ Icepack is the best dj name on Earth.
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:37am Ken From Hyde Park:

DJ Ice Pack is OK with me.
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:38am Cheri Pi:

BSI-Welcome back!

  Tue. 6/19/12 10:43am jan:

Italian Job - with Michael Caine- great film with original Mini Coopers!
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:43am robyn:

  Tue. 6/19/12 10:43am Desmond:

"Sounds a lot like and ad..."
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:43am listener mark:

Good Morning Trouble
Good Morning DJ Icepack
DJ Icepack is wise beyond his years
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:43am john:

tell Ice Pack it's not an ad if you aren't paid to promote it.. it's a friendly promotion
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:45am pgw in mntclr:

there it is. the truth comes out: playin' legos.
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:46am elf:

ice pack has a great attitude. p.s. Its a shameless friendly self-promotion... i LOVE TROUBLE, maybe ill send some money to the kickstart after i get paid lofting hay, seeing as i couldn't pledge, can't now, will later!
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:50am Chinchilla:

Trouble always keeps my Tuesday mornings bright and interesting!
Avatar    Tue. 6/19/12 10:53am trouble:

merci bien elf and chinchilla!
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:54am too much coffee:

BTW Trouble, you don't exactly seem like a Lincoln Center person, but I just passed this poster in front of one of their buildings that was talking up this event on Aug 5: "Oiseaux Exotiques", by the International Contemporary Ensemble - http://mostlymozart.org/index.php/2012-ice-aug-5
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:55am dc pat:

Icepack seems to have a lot of nuggets of wisdom "why not play with Legos or something.." couldn't agree more. The entire first floor of my house is filled with Legos..
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:55am too much coffee:

here's their blurb: "A fantastical journey through kaleidoscopic islands of sound: Jukka Tiensuu’s nemo recalls Jules Verne’s undersea voyage, while Tristan Murail’s La Barque mystique summons a hazy sonic seascape. Sweeping waves of intensity wash over Luca Francesconi’s Islands, here in its U.S. premiere, for chamber ensemble and piano. The finale, Olivier Messiaen’s Oiseaux exotiques, brings to life a masterful catalogue of sparkling bird sounds."
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:56am too much coffee:

btw "why not play with Legos or something" is a good response to just about any situation or person that is trying to get at you and make you angry. Like, don't participate in their crap, just go off and do your own thing.
Avatar    Tue. 6/19/12 10:57am trouble:

that sounds gorgeous too much coffee,! a family visit is in order. my son and hubbie have season tix to the kids philharmonic series there.
  Tue. 6/19/12 10:59am robyn:

dang, when is this hot chip album coming out already. i like a lot of what i've heard.
  Tue. 6/19/12 11:01am robyn:

oh it is out. nm
  Tue. 6/19/12 11:03am too much coffee:

@trouble: awesome!
  Tue. 6/19/12 11:04am Jennique:

Lynda Barry has a great excerpt in her book "What It Is"
"We don't create a fantasy world to escape reality, we create it to be able to stay...It seems that human beings everywhere understand that a child who is never allowed to play will eventually go mad. But how do we know this? And why do we know this? And what happens when we forget?"
  Tue. 6/19/12 11:04am john:

I like this, chilled out vibes before a big presentation for me
Avatar    Tue. 6/19/12 11:07am trouble:

good luck with that presentation john. imagine that they are all fmu listeners...
  Tue. 6/19/12 11:09am dc pat:

aaaaaah, why don't ya just go play with Legos or something. I'm definitely using that one.
  Tue. 6/19/12 11:11am jt:

was that song about bananas?
  Tue. 6/19/12 11:12am Mike East:

@chris 10:41 - I thought it was "Mostly Harmless"
  Tue. 6/19/12 11:12am too much coffee:

oh, this is good
  Tue. 6/19/12 11:13am Mike East:

Dark Teatime of the Soul is a Dirk Gently, Holistic Detective novel.
  Tue. 6/19/12 11:14am Andrew 2:

@DJ Icepack, if you used all the Legos in your house to just build one thing, what would you build?
  Tue. 6/19/12 11:56am Jennique:

I'd love to see some Lego chickens and eggs.
Avatar    Tue. 6/19/12 11:57am trouble:
