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.

@Handy: Did you replace the dead laptop? Or are you still time-sharing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am WoodsOfNH:

@Trouble Last week I mentioned all of my magazines disappearing. After an inquiry, I was informed that when you forward your mail, periodicals are only covered for a short period. After that, they are return to the publisher as not deliverable. Gees, I wish somebody I had told me this!

So there, that's at least one thing I can't blame for the current stain in the Oval Office. ;-)

@Trouble Maybe it was in the fine print of the form we filled out? Dunno. Kind of bummer to lose several physical copies of things. I'm not really an online reader.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am Passaic River Blues:

If we lived in a sane society, and a President's obvious and admitted mismanagement led to mass death and mass unemployment, that alone would torpedo any shot at reelection. Put to the side all the corruption, destabilization, norm-breaking, absence of a single redeeming human quality or trait, etc., Donnie Shitbag just wouldn't have a shot. But unfortunately we do live in a sick society, so Trouble's right. The only way to overcome every voter suppression tactic the GOP has and will continue to leverage, up to and including a redo of Bush v. Gore in a newly fortified conservative Supreme Court, is a turnout tidal wave.

sending you healing energy :)
i was really sick in February (but no fever) -- then really REALLY sick in March (the fever kicked in, was 103.5 at its worst) -- but it turned out it was not COVID-19 (by the time testing came around, i did not have any symptoms -- but had anyibody testing done, and all that was negative)
a friend of mine was also knocked out with some equally severe, crazy non-COVID nightmare . . . long story short, do whatever you gotta do to take care of yourself!

I'm probably in the minority, but I really resent Fall. Winter is kind of like a politician or celebrity you hate and have to endure day-in day-out. But Fall? It's like that significant other that teases you with nice moments, but you know in the back of your mind that they're going to cheat on you, leave you, and take the puppy you and they rescued.

@kppk, re: our recent conversation about radio reception, you should definitely be able to get 91.1 clearly in southern Sunset Park esp. if you are west of 6th Ave., but only with a "real" radio or stereo. Junky cheapo alarm clock radios and stuff like that are only good for picking up Z100! (Or other terrible commercial stations.)

I hope everyone has just sung out loud the "What they doin'?" line in Backstabbers?

I've always loved that "what they do". good song

@ Ken -- was inspired to walk by Sybil's Cave yesterday
(had just come from dentist, looks like i gotta get a root canal -- oh joy) . . . so sweet to hear all the crickets and birds singing to each other
and yes, DAMN! did not even realize that "Big John" is no longer there :(

All your hatred and contempt will backfire on you November 4. You should stick to the music and stop using this platform as a biased means to express your political views. Very distasteful!

Is this a Dr John song about an orangatang? I hope it is otherwise what little hope I have will be crushed even further.

@xtrakrispy - ha! In this day and age, reality can be whatever you want to pretend it is, Therefore, that Dr John song was about Brian Wilson and orangatngs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am Trouble:

ideas are ideas until someone doesn't like them and then it all gets 'political'. the personal is political, and the only people who don't admit that are the people whose privilege has exempted them from having to consider that the rules are/were written by them, to protect them.

@? you know what is really distasteful? 200,000 + dead when he was warned in January. Remember, it will go away with the warm weather? The corruption that has gone on with this administration. Lies that turn into violence upon humans at the border and within our borders. He is simply lining his pockets and doesn't give two bits about you or anyone else. That is distasteful.

“Shut up and play music” is a distasteful political statement. Music is full of political statements. And why not discuss politics, it should be healthy to have discourse everywhere, there’s plenty of places to hide from difficult conversations...

@kevlicki, Trouble, etc . We were discussing last night how the anti-maskers/Anti-BLM/Personal civil rights types don't seem to have the intellectual capacity to rationally discuss the pros and cons of ANYTHING. They have a short bumper sticker answer to every political issue, and will chant it endlessly.

@carmichael, because they never had to defend themselves: the will of the land was written by their fathers. white privilege is exactly that

This song is so sad. hikkoshi means moving. I think she's singing about moving out from a failed romance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am YETI BOB:

@Moomins: That would be great.

@Everyone: Re: feeding trolls - sorry, I'm not trying to tell people what to do. Of course I agree with you, Vivian. I also find their comment "Very distasteful!" (as I find that typical Trumpian twitter-talk, summing everything up with a two word judgement and some exclamation marks).
  11:56am kevlicki:

A ? For ?, what makes it distasteful for a DJ to express their views over the air? FYI regular listeners to This is the modern world are already aware the Trouble is outspoken, many probably come for it.
For fresh ears, what is so offensive? Do you think freeform should be an objective safe space for listeners?
