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.

Ok, found it - this one - titled “Black and part Black Birds in America: (Crow, Goldfinch)” - is not huge, it's 27 7/8 x 24 3/4 inches. If you are interested in more about this great artist, here's his gallery page: jackshainman.com... , lots of great work there. Looks like he was also featured in the NYT recently.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19am redbee:

On a bird-related note, I took up some recommendations from you all, from a few weeks back... I visited the Audubon center in New Jersey (Scherman Hoffman) and used the Song Sleuth app to identify a bunch of birds. It made for such a pleasant, lovely day. Highly recommended, and I can't wait to get a pair of binoculars and go back during migration season.
  9:19am Ed From Jersey City:

It sometimes borders on a Mexican prison riot with the distance learning but , all in all, everyone is healthy and happy. The dog is in seventh heaven because he has company all day. I hope DJ Ice Pack and Mr. Trouble are good.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21am Handy Haversack:

Nice, redbee! We went out to the Delaware River to see friends a couple of weeks back and saw some birds that are less common in north Brooklyn: grosbeaks (they left here when it heated up), goldfinches, titmice, chickadees, hummingbirds.

i feel for you @ed... so hard for parents of young kids. my college student is deep in his computer all day long, no social life, but that's another kettle of fish. say hi to nilka!

Thank you for playing this Arthur Russell. I have had another track from World of Echo in my head for weeks and was not able to place who recorded it. Mystery solved!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25am YETI BOB:

Suddenly thinking of how long it's been since I've been to a museum or art gallery (something I used to do a lot). Lately I've been walking around the city photographing graffiti, trying to get my art fix. There's some pretty great street art in and near my neighborhood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25am redbee:

HH: I love the Del Water Gap, really incredible birding there, and such a variety of flora as well. I think I've seen grosbeaks there earlier this summer. I've not yet seen a hummingbird on the east coast, that's awesome! Glad to hear you had some good sightings.

Lisa: Yes! Thanks much! New favorite spot, and I'm looking forward to checking out some of the waterfront preserves in the future.
Avatar 9:25am BeNowBobby:

The article On James Marshall is stunningly amazing, beautiful art and artist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am redbee:

With the help of using the Song Sleuth app, I realized that the hawk I thought I was hearing near me in central Brooklyn is actually a blue jay impersonating one. At the Audubon center I was able to hear a blue jay and a hawk screaming at each other (hah), the difference is subtle...
Avatar 9:28am Henry C.:

really entranced by that Anika track, thanks for spinning!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am deborah:

@9:25YETI BOB: Thinking the same. Miss it all. Montclair Art Museum is within walking distance and was a favorite haunt, along with galleries there and in Jersey City. It might be a while until these places reopen. Sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am Handy Haversack:

Ha, redbee, yeah! Our local bluejay teens have been amusing themselves by hawk whistling to scare the sparrows off the feeders!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30am YETI BOB:

(Interesting nugget from the NYT article, if you don't have time to read it: James Audubon was probably Black, with Haitian origins ... part of the reason Marshall is working with bird imagery)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31am redbee:

"bluejay teens", haha! Feathery blue terrors. I'll hear the cry and then see a flock of pigeons go scattering.

Along the forrest trail, during lulls in bird sightings, it often comes up that JJ Audubon was ALSO shooting the birds in order to get all the details right in his depictions of them..

BeNowBobby: If the parents are feeding the baby bird, that's a good sign.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52am YETI BOB:

BeNowBobby: Does the bird have a comfortable spot on the fire escape? I've rescued a few baby birds and generally what I do is make a temporary "nest" for them out of a basket or bowl and some rags. If the parents know where the baby is, it usually works out OK.
Avatar 9:52am BeNowBobby:

Yeti- right? I thought so too and she is spunky chirping loud and strong has energy just can't fly yet she not that small. I thought it was a good sign too. Thanks Yeti I heard her all night out my window, poor little thing.

Gah, Trouble, somehow I ended up with back-to-back meetings this morning. Blargh. The show has been sounding great. I want to hope I'll be back before the end ... but I'm low on hope this week.

At any road, thanks, Trouble! As always!

Audiobook recommendation: "Sigh, Gone" by Phuc Tran, a memoir of being an immigrant kid in PA in the 80s. If you're having trouble paying attention due to quarantine brain, this is good, since it's a series of funny, sad episodic segments, well-told, but also all connected. Great narration.
Avatar 10:41am northguineahills:

@WoodsOfNH: There was a gallery exhibit in 2003 called the "LP show'. Musicians and artists put together album covers. Christian Marclay used "whipped cream and other delights" and other album covers that copied/parodied it to make a pixelated image of the original album cover from afar. (there were scores of non-Herb Alpert covers used, many I've never seen since....

Surprised in the three years I’ve been listening to William Onyeabor, this is the first time a I’ve heard him played on WFMU

@Dean: I discovered Onyeabor from WFMU and The Wire simulateneously I believe when the first reissue came out. (I believe it was Scott Williams first, then Trouble).

Do I hear Eno's voice in there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00am Yes:

sounds like it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00am Trouble:

sorry about that @ adrian. it is raining hear, and it's a nice rain as opposed to most of the ferocious, flooding rains we have had this summer. although there is a flash flood warning, so someone somewhere is getting it downpour stylee

@PaleSon: Looking at the credits for this album - Eno is credited with backing vocals. And Robert Palmer (Addicted to Love) is credited with percussion. Really??

@Yeti Ha ha! Must've stopped by the studio one day.

Aha!
  11:08am Listener Gregory:

Trouble, is it Robert Palmer the singer or the music critic?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08am YETI BOB:

"Silver and Gold" by Onyeabor is my favorite.
Avatar 11:08am Pale Son:

I think "Alabama" actually came after "Sweet Home...". It was a back-and-forth kinda thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am YETI BOB:

Gregory - the "Addicted to Love" singer.
Avatar 11:09am Pale Son:

Nope, I'm wrong. Trouble was right.

@Yeti B, yikes! The critic actually played clarinet on an Ornette Coleman album once, so it's not out of the question.

Angelique Kidjo does a great take on Listening Wind off Remain in Light

Native of Portugal, here. "D" is "D." no matter what. Brazilian Portuguese has heavy African influence in the spoken language. So, difference is mostly about phonetics, not structure. Basically, it's Portuguese with some jazz added to the mix, making it a bit more melodic....and less rigid.

Hello Trouble and all, just in time to can't get enough

@winston: I did my undergrad at UF, and my MA at CUNY-Hunter (NYC), and then spent 16 years up there, before coming back down to work at an environmental science startup before DeSantis slashed the Everglades restoration budget. Now, just underemployed. (I actually have a Gators facemask a friend made for me, out of the other generic ones I have). I used to have friends that lived in Tally, and used to visit often, but almost all of them left.

I can’t believe my luck to just now find that Clay’s Pounding System was a reggae show! I’m shaking with excitement! Was he on in the middle of the night?

Don't forget that Congress mandated that the USPS fund a retirement fund for 75 years, something no other federal or private agency ever had to fund (hence their funding shortage).

does buying stamps actually help the situation?

Hi Trouble and everyone.
Please don't understimate the effect of the US on the rest of the world. For the sake of the whole world, please register, if you haven't done so and vote for a change in government.

Have always been impressed with the consistency and scope of the USPS. Have had significantly more bad experiences with private carriers.
  11:52am Rich in Bristol:

When you're buying stamps from your Post Office, make sure to check out their variety of gimmicky alternative ones. I recently received a sweet Star Trek stamp from my buddy in NYC.

@dave: The USPS gets no funding from the government, but they can have their hours reduced by executive decree. Less hours, less income. stamps is how they make the most of their money, even more then package mailing.
