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.

Damn... haven't heard this song in a long time. Going to need to dig out my Nick Drake records later. This song is awesome.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32am Guido (Cologne):

favourite Nick Drake song.
Who did the jazz version? (Female singer.)
... I mean the other jazz version some three years ago ...
Avatar 9:33am groucho:

is the rest of this album this good? (poor boy: songs of nick drake V/A ) might buy it

Howdy everyone. I'm feeling like a real jerk this morning. I'm at wearing wearing my prescription shades. I switched out my regular specs with my sunglasses before I left home and left my regular glasses behind. D'oh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am Trouble:

not a jerk tim, just a rockstar or a man who just had cataract surgery...
  9:56am pierre:

@ Trouble : I perfectly see, and understand this kind of feeling…
Let me tell you that I have felt like this, and well, I don't know why but the radio friends, WFMU in general, your good shows always put a balm on those bad feelings

Blueberry gelato skies over the isthmus today. The lakes have officially frozen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59am tim from champaign:

Thanks Trouble! I need to rock the shades confidently, not apologetically.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Loving that quilt...

  10:01am Peter (Seattle):

Is it a snow day for Ice Pack!?
Positively balmy out here. What a full moon last night!
Four more days of school for us! :)

  10:10am Adrian (on a bus in) London:

Tim, I did that once and had to go to a Calexico gig in Amsterdam wearing prescription sunglasses. It was busy and people kept bumping into me, getting irate then, in Dutch, apologising profusely, saying: 'Sorry, didn't realise you were blind!'

wow @ pierre, that is an awesome thing that wfmu has created. very good indeed! my husband was joking with me this morning suggesting my bad mood = awesome radio show. we will see...

morning trouble and crew. bean soup is in the crockpot so y'all come over and get warm. duke, where in columbia cty? i know chatham fairly well. coldest i ever experienced was minus 13 over the river in roxbury
  10:17am koto:

the isthmus seems a desert.
  10:17am Robert:

I keep forgetting the performing name "DJ Ice Pack" and thinking instead it's "DJ Ice Pick". The difference of 1 letter seems to give it the exact opposite meaning!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18am tim from champaign:

Hahaha - good one, Adrian.

RRN - I was born to play that role. A few minutes ago, the button on my pants popped off and fell into the john. Thank goodness I'm wearing a belt. I quit.
Avatar 10:18am βrian:

@Robert. Me, too. Perhaps it's the pointed commentary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'Ice Pick' - it's a Trotsky tribute thing...
  10:20am Robert:

And from the voice, I've never been able to tell whether Ice Pack is a girl or boy. I guess that'll change soon.
Avatar 10:20am Whosondephone:

The synths in this song are driving me nutz! In a good way.

I'm telling you, common. Along with clothes, me and wooden chairs don't get along either. I usually break a couple chairs a year while sitting on them.

What's the media for today's art, Trouble?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37am Trouble:

ha ha @lucky!
@tim it looks like fabric. don't know if it's woven like that or sewed bits and pieces.
Avatar 10:42am dale:

if you like fiber arts (haven't thought of that term in years) and mixed media check out judith scott - downs syndrome, deaf and institutionalized for most of her life. but her art is amazing.

I love this Dwight Sykes album. So darn great!

Ahhhh Lonnie Hollie to save the day!
  10:53am blee:

Can we have another Lonnie Holley month?
Avatar 10:54am Roberto:

Agreed. In a world of suck, Lonnie is the anti-suck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55am Trouble:

never say never blee! lonnie loves fmu so next time he is in town...? i'm open!
  11:02am blee:

My fingers are crossed, Trouble. Thank you for showing me the shining light that is Lonnie Holley. It was very exciting tuning in that month to hear what he would play next. Ahhh, the power of radio.

send some snow to the uk, please..
Avatar 11:10am duke:

we cut the cable. internet only. We can listen to WFMU on the TV
  11:10am roman:

trouble! keep in mind it's just 'ukraine' not 'the ukraine,' which is not only grammatically incorrect but it also suggests ukraine is still part of the USSR, not its own independent country...it's a bad habit most of the world still has but i hope you can break it! :)
Avatar 11:11am bobdoesthings:

My $49.99 internet only bill somehow is $65 each month due to added "fees" .. for what.. I do not know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am Ike:

A lot of us still have cable. It's not "slipping away" as fast as it seems, despite all the Netflix hype, and when it does, cable companies will just jack up their Internet access prices to compensate for loss of video profits. We're lucky in NJ to have relatively good Fios distribution to add some competition.
Avatar 11:15am Chris from DC:

I had to switch to FiOS. They've basically stopped maintaining the copper lines.

oh, by the way, where's the ray price tribute?
  11:20am pierre:

Avatar 11:21am Rev. Turnip Druid:

What's the topic? Cable? We killed it this year & went with one of those streaming box things (roku). I dig using the TV more like a jukebox, vs. being brain-fed by outside forces. Control issues maybe?

Avatar 11:22am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Pierre!Tim!CfDC!Ike! ... alla y'alls!
  11:23am roman:

my advice: get rid of your tv and use a projector instead. that way watching TV is a special event instead of a convenient time suck that turns from 2 minutes to 3 hours before you know it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am KevinfromBayRidge:

Good Morning Troubelites all! Yup, the internet only pricing will gobble up most saving from opting out of the bundles...But I'm working on it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am tim from champaign:

Does the album title "Mug Museum" refer to a museum of drinking vessels or a museum full of people like X Ray Burns, Joe Belock and half the WFMU listening audience?

if you ask the phone company for naked dsl you're supposed to be able to get that through fcc regulations. with that and a roku box and an antenna on the roof, another fcc madate, you are covered quite cheaply

Is DJ Ice Pack joining you on xmas eve, Trouble?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am Ike:

Dale, in some areas, DSL might not be good enough for Roku. My folks in rural MD used to get ~750k. Recently the speed has increased considerably. If it collapses back to 750k, will the Roku work? Can it sit and buffer for a while and then be watchable using very slow speeds?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am Trouble:

dj icepack is working hard on honing his christmas list, changing it everyday! doesn't he know that elves need a year to make that stuff?? he might come along, depends how many candy canes i have in my bag...

Avatar 11:50am Rev. Turnip Druid:

ooh... what is this groovy thing... clicky finger deployed...
Avatar 11:51am dale:

i don't know what our speed is but the roku works fine over dsl. the roku will adjust resolution based on the traffic on your line. sometimes it's 1080 and sometimes it looks like a vhs but it usually catches up to itself.

just checked, i'm getting 1.13 mb over dsl
