A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Good morning Trouble and...Duane?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06am trouble:

good morning van in dc and all the modern world bunnies!
  9:09am MWH:

I'm *hare*!

Bonjour Trouble !
Bonjour Duane !

bonjour mes lapins
  9:12am still b/p:

As Allan Sherman sang, "You're getting to be a rabbit with me."
  9:12am Cheri Pi:

Is it Bun-day already??
  9:14am pierre:

being called "lapins" could make us blush.
  9:14am Wizard Frog:

I be no rabbit - but at least I ribbit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14am trouble:

today's artist is tyler bewley: "glacier preserve" AND we will be giving away this gorgeous print today! thanks to the cool peeps @ tinyshowcase.com for the donation!!
  9:15am moose:

i'm drinking my tea out of my favorie 'le lapin' mug which depicts something like a cartoon rabbit orgy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16am trouble:

oooh oh is there some kind of french slang thing that i don't know about, pierre? perhaps petits champignons is better?
  9:16am Wizard Frog:

Is there a double meaning for Lapins pierre?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16am trouble:

fab! moose!
  9:19am Chef:

Stirring up some stifado this morning.
  9:19am Dusty Springfoot:

Bunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain..
  9:20am fred von helsing:

scwoowy wabbits
  9:21am tamara:

hi trouble! hi duane! please tell duane that i'll get his premium next year.
  9:22am dc pat:

my pal foot foot. I wanted to name our latest cat Foot Foot but I was totally denied by the rest of the fambly.
  9:23am B. moose:

Hey, Rock, watch me pull a rabbit out of my mug!
  9:25am R. Squirrel:

  9:26am Boris:

Eez Moose and Squirrrrel !
  9:27am pierre:

no no, "lapins" is not an weird innuendo, it's just it sounds very nice, like a mother could speak of her children, somethin' like that. I didn't mind at all. "Petit Champignons" is completely original, and works for me as well ^^
  9:27am Van in DC:

Liking this! Gimme gimme
  9:28am dc pat:

my daughter's nickname is Bunny, from the day she was born.
  9:28am maja:

whoa! Trouble AND Duane! I'm gonna have both your premiums this year! Tralala!!! I love that drawing by tyler bewley
  9:28am Urban Dictionary:

Where everything is innuendo.
  9:32am Brian en Angleterre:

Hello trouble and friends. Just dropped a small one in the bin.
We went to Paris for a day trip last Wednesday. Beautiful day, L'Orangerie & Nouvelle d'Orsay.
Give Duane a megaphone.
  9:32am pierre:

@Urban Dictionnary : It is true that "Lapins" have this reputation, don't they as well in the u.s. ?
But when somebody says "mon petit lapin" it would be more to a kid, or a pupil, without innuendo implied.
  9:35am moo:

can't i just pick up your premium at sam goody?
  9:40am joe:

'ello folks
  9:42am Cecile:

ha, Brian.
I was watching a quite unfunny detective show t(that thought itself quite clever) the other day, Psych, but one thing that did amuse me was that their contract rider insisted on a trampoline and a NBA official air horn
  9:43am Cecile:

the megaphone reminded me of that.
  9:44am Cecile:

good morning, all!
  9:48am Brian en Angleterre:

Nice one Cecile. Here's a sad story about the lead in Wuthering Height. Still not seen it yet. Looking forward to Rampage, same crew as The Messenger which I thought was very good. Too good for Oscars!!
  9:48am moos:

(just wanted to say i ticked the modern world box when i made a pledge during faye's show, hoping she gets a regular slot soon!)
  9:51am cubicle carl:

that's my life....disco to disco
  9:52am Cecile:

I only saw Rango and Bridesmaids this year.
I wanted to see Beginners. I even watched Top Gear reruns instead of the ceremony. I'm so very over the Oscars.

Rango wasn't even the best animated feature. I thought Kung Fu Panda 2 was stunningly gorgeous and at times pee your pants funny. Rango looked good, but was very weird - a cartoon version of Chinatown!
  9:53am Cecile:

Brian, link isn't working
  9:53am Cecile:

Rob and Katie!!!!!
  9:57am Brian en Angleterre:

Try this one, Cecile.
  9:59am Cecile:

that's a tragedy. And it seems like the filmmakers used him just as much as the system. But his poor wife, to be the brunt of that.
  9:59am Cecile:

who doesn't tell their lead their voice is going to be dubbed? that is completely classless.
  10:04am Brian en Angleterre:

I am surprised of Andrea Arnold. Must walk the dog.
  10:04am Cecile:

okay. *takes deep breath*

how old is this Donovan Quinn? This sounds like a lost 80s record.
  10:06am Cecile:

there's more story there, but it's just going to be more sadness, Brian. But thanks for sharing.
  10:07am Bryant:

Speaking of Donovan, thought for sure when this started it was gonna be a cover of "Season of the Witch."
  10:08am Cecile:

bryant, exactly.
  10:10am Denise:

Trouble: Although I am not eligible to win a prize, please know that your friendship is the real prize.
  10:11am Cecile:

haole means non-Hawaiian.
  10:15am Cecile:

And compared to other premiums, you get SO MUCH SWAG.
  10:15am Rob W:

Thanks very much Trouble for the shout out earlier. But I have to tell everyone - in a certain way the person ultimately responsible for starting the chain of events that led to Trouble's triumphant tenure on the FMU airwaves is none other than comment board superstar and devoted listener and pledger Cecile! I will explain in a second.
  10:15am Cecile:

You pledge to NPR for $365, you get an in print CD and a tote bag.
  10:16am Cecile:

really, Rob?
  10:20am Thom Ristow:

Good luck with your goal today Duane and Trouble
  10:21am Rob W:

Here's why Cecile leads to Trouble: My longtime sidekick Katie attended the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor some long years ago, as had a few years before. She met Cecile. Cecile invited Katie to come check out U of M's great freeform radio station, WCBN, where she was doing a show. Katie started doing a show on CBN too (eventually becoming music director). I had done a show on CBN a few years earlier but Katie and I did not overlap and did not meet in Michigan. But we did meet through the WCBN-expat network in New York. Katie and I hooked up. Katie met Trouble and they became friends, and so through Katie I met and became friends with Trouble. And then we all met Ken and Ken encouraged Trouble to try out for a slot on FMU. So you can trace Trouble's presence on our WFMU airwaves back to Cecile!
  10:23am Rob W:

I meant to say - "as I had (attended U of M) a few years before (Katie)" - sorry for the typo - !
  10:24am Cecile:

Rob fails to metion that he was a super-great mentor to me and very encouraging and enthusiastic. Our time overlapped for about a year.
  10:26am Cecile:

When he left, he even wrote an ex-pat column for our station newsletter. I remember him writing that the Lyres were like "the Anti-Nowhere League of garage"!
  10:26am Robert:

I think what this illustrates is that the people who do this sort of thing are a special rare subspecies, of whom at any given time about a third of them are in captivity at WFMU.
  10:28am Cecile:

He started a media show called Words and Music. I guested as the fanzine reviewer. Then I kind of co=opted the newsletter. ;)
  10:29am Rob W:

Aw gee thanks Cecile! Although I don't remember the Lyres quote - I'll gladly take credit though!
  10:32am Cecile:

Seriously, though, you were one of the few folks in station management who tried to get to know everyone and encourage their craziness.
  10:32am Rob W:

@ Robert - well, I was thinking - you know how there's the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon for movie buffs... I think we should document the Six Degrees of Cecile for the freeform radio freakocracy!
  10:33am Cecile:

Oh, gee whiz. I'm literally blushing here.
  10:35am Adrian in London:

Hi all; I pledged last week, I can listen with impunity this week.
  10:35am Cecile:

hey, you guys, since I have a prize account, I'm ticking off no swag on my pledge. Is this keeping me out of the running for swag. :D

I was so lucky last year, I shouldn't even be complaining.
  10:37am Van in DC:

@Cecile - I've been doing the same thing on my account.
  10:37am Rob W:

Well, and seriously too: The WCBN experience was very inspirational for me - it was the first time I really found something I unequivocally loved doing - and I'm still so passionate about freeform radio today, as we all are at FMU. Which is why folks should definitely pledge and support this crazy wonderful radio station / cultural institution. (And I do mean institution, in all senses of the word!)
  10:38am Cecile:

It kind of ruined me for the communications industry. LOL!
  10:39am Rob W:

PS - sorry I made you blush Cecile! As for the technical stuff - I think no swag just refers to premiums, the things you get automatically (like sticker or soap for 15 bucks, t-shirt in addition for 50, premium cd in addition to shirt and soap / sticker for 75 etc) - you're still in the running for prize drawings.
  10:40am Cecile:


That's fine, Rob. It's the kind of embarrassment I don't really mind.

  10:42am Rob W:

Cecile - I can relate to your joke about the communications biz - the freeform mentality has definitely led to some problems in my day jobs in more mainstream non-commercial broadcasting! I have to be very careful not to tip my hand! Must get to work now and leave the board to others but please dear listeners - pledge if you haven't, pledge more if you have, and show your love for Trouble's amazing show and this great radio station.
  10:42am Cecile:

but don't leave FMU stickers when you get bad service like the tracts some religious people leave as a message to bad waitresses.
  10:43am deb:

i made a mouse of today pledge last year -- do it, everyone! -- and was wondering if i need to make a new pledge to renew (and-or sweep up another set of awesome premums)?
  10:44am Barney:

Pledged last week and getting your premium cd to fight the creeping threat of princess music.
  10:46am Cecile:

YES, the hip-hop!
  10:48am Cecile:

Do you have auto-renew, deb? If you don't, you have to re-pledge. If you do, you probably should have set up a prize account before the fundraiser. I defer to Joe McG as to the accuracy of my answer.
  10:49am stu:

Hi Trouble and all the Troubled listeners who make this possible ! Big kiss from the cool world ( 5 inches of snow today!) from your Moomin landia PS can't wait to hear this in my headphones when the CD arrives !!!!!
  10:51am Van in DC:

I wish my company did matching donations but they don't :(
  10:52am moose:

steppin' out
good luck DJT
bye all weird fabulous listeners!
  10:54am Cecile:

bye moose!
  10:58am deb:

thanks Cecile.....not sure if i am auto or stick-shift on my donation......eek!
  10:59am Van in DC:

That was a great story :)
  10:59am Adrian in London:

Great Vannier story, Duane. I cherish my Finders Keepers vinyl set.
  11:02am Van in DC:

I love Kitaro. A street musician was playing one of his songs outside a DC metro station once, and I stopped, listened, smiled. When he finished I walked up, gave him a $10 and said, "I love Kitaro!". His eyes lit up and he looked at me with amazement that I knew what the tune was.

Not that Kitaro is ever played on FMU. But still.
  11:03am Adrian in London:

My ears are burning!
  11:17am yayson:

does this sounds a little like sting? just asking.
  11:19am Adrian in London:

Yeah, come to London. Our motto: "We can't afford to live here! You can't afford to visit!" That'll bring the tourists in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am trouble:

hey kids pledge away to get some fab art work! this gorgeous print by tyler bewley is available! how cool is that??
  11:25am Cecile:

deb, just email Joe. Lord knows, I have enough over the years, and he is very helpful and gracious.
  11:26am not so big Al:

whats the best nation in the world?

  11:30am will:

Al from philly?
  11:31am will:

heard that for years from some dude on south street. always got me.
  11:32am tr+sh:

I love my premium cds from this show. My favourites.
  11:33am Listener Bryan:

seriously, you two are like the giggle twins.
  11:33am not so big Al:

Nah, Kent oh
A homeless man told me that in DC on the washington mall so long ago, stuck with me ever since, maybe its the same drifter haha
  11:34am tr+sh:

"I still think to tune in on Thursday mornings."
  11:38am fred von helsing:

  11:39am claudia:

hey, Brad, nice donation!
  11:45am Mike East:

I pledged, but I have to go back to the archives to see if I won anything. I just spent the morning at the tax office. Love the show, Trouble.
  11:47am Luciano:

Hello/Ciao from Italy, Trouble!
Love your show! And your CD-premiums, too! :-)
  11:50am Lewis:

Trouble's premium would be worth every penny if it only had this single track!!
  12:01pm Van in DC:

Darn. I wanted to see the tail wag.
  12:03pm Tail:

There's always 3PM. Trouble set a very high goal!!!
