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.

Yep, light snow for the last hour or so. Imagine walking around inside a snow globe IRL.

We got fine hail this morning in northern Bergen County. Exciting if you love hail like I do, but alarming if you look at the calendar. Still, it was right around this time of year when the FMU Record Fair was blizzarded out in ~2011, so.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/27/16 11:05am JP from KC:

Morning, everyone. Singles Going Steady is perhaps one of the best ideas in the history of ideas.

On a related note, I'm pretty sure I've reached the point where WFMU has ruined me for all other radio stations, which is especially problematic for me as someone who unfortunately works in corporate "radio."

Any ideas on what else guy could do with a broadcasting degree... besides broadcasting?
  Thu. 10/27/16 11:06am Stephanie:

I'm loving today's literary allusions *thumbs up!* enjoy Zadie Smith tonight, Trouble!

The red, the blue hen and the pheasant are the only three non native state birds. And five southern states have the northern mockingbird as their state bird. Sorry - on a wiki wild goose chase. Or a rabbit hole.
