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.

  Tue. 9/20/11 9:22am Dave in SoDak:

  Tue. 9/20/11 9:29am pierre:

Trouble, is it "un" like 1 in french, or something like "un" like U then N ? Anyway it was very sweet.
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:35am dc pat:

just get a $4 plastic water bottle--most are made with safe plastic and they work and are cheap as hell.
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:38am consumer tip:

Write to the manufacturer.
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:39am pierre:

that would make sense the "un…something" cool, thanks you for the enlightement
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:40am jamesie:

  Tue. 9/20/11 9:40am abby:

  Tue. 9/20/11 9:47am Wild Neil:

This was used by (stolen by?) Zappa...Sun Ra was, that is...
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:48am Cheri Pi:

Trouble-I mocked the Missonin collection at Target; in a witty moment of consumerism-loathing I said-"what's next-the Coogi collection?" (A la Bill Cosby...) can you imagine? teeheeheehee
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:51am dc pat:

I meant plastic BIKE water bottle.

Man why do I like this Oh No song??
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:51am blackgreen13:

worth it just for the sweater
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:52am jamesie:

maybe you need to fit an O ring. Sorry for obsessing on yr problem. Condom might do it!
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:53am trouble:

at target abby, liz berg and i wrecked the place since there was nothing left, no missoni but sadly no listeners either.
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:53am blackgreen13:

can get all sizes of o rings at a good auto parts place, some hrdwr stores
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:53am moose:

i've always liked missoni- they've lost cred for me now forever
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:54am Cheri Pi:

That's hilarious @BG13!!!
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:54am abby:

i SO wished to come, but that's france for you!! they still had some stuff left on the internet.
  Tue. 9/20/11 9:59am blackgreen13:

gotta love that fashion period :)
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:00am moose:

(sorry for seeming a snob- i like my old fashion houses to remain luxe, not that i wear that kind of thing but am an admirer)
ANYHOW, nice nice show

  Tue. 9/20/11 10:08am aaron in chicago:

  Tue. 9/20/11 10:11am trouble:

merci trish
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:12am pierre:

i like bakelite. it's a good plastic to me, and as it's no longuer produced it obliged to recycle by bying them on flea market and other garage sale http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bakélite + it is in a Gainsbourg song (sea sex and sun)!
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:12am trouble:

today's artist is joseph e yoakum, an outsider artist
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:13am blackgreen13:

pierre, isn't that the original, first plastic?
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:14am trouble:

i think bakelite is gorgeous and i hear they stopped making it because it was flammable or some such crazy thing
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:15am Cheri Pi:

My friend bought a beautiful yellow bakelite bracelet this weekend at a flea market, I wish I could afford one.
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:16am dc pat:

I feel like good intentions turn into capitalist fads too often. I buy into this crap all the time. I'm looking at an expensive aluminum water bottle that I never use and right next to it is my beat up old plastic bike bottle. NOW, that's not to say that the production of plastic isn't more harmful than production of aluminum--and I understand that aluminum is a lot less resource demanding to recycle than plastic.

so...like everything else it's complicated... Ultimately I think you're right, the goal is to consume less.
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:16am Cheri Pi:

If I ever remarry, I want a bakelite ring.
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:17am jamesie:

going home on my bike along Rosebury Avenue, Sadlers Wells Thertre I passed Robert and Alfie , turned round and cheesily said, I love you both. Robert and Alfie smiled, Robert with his hands clasped together at his chest. It made my day.
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:19am pierre:

maybe blackgreen13, i know it's old.

@ trouble : …and it breaks easily, that's why it stopped i guess, we people tend to break thing now, and buy replacements… make things last longer is a goal to me too.

@ Cheri Pi : if i find something, i'll let you know, i bought a bakelite ashtray, and it does the trick. It is quite easy to find around here (france), sometime it's expensive, sometimes not at all.
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:20am dc pat:

bakelite looks like guitar picks to me and I can tell you, those things are extremely flammable...and stinky...
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:21am helpful elf:

One of the first plastics made from synthetic components (although phenol can be extracted from biological sources), Bakelite was used for its electrically nonconductive and heat-resistant properties in radio and telephone casings and electrical insulators, and also in such diverse products as kitchenware, jewellery, pipe stems, and children's toys. In 1993 Bakelite was designated a National Historical Chemical Landmark by the American Chemical Society in recognition of its significance as the world's first synthetic plastic.[1]
Phenolics are seldom used in general consumer products today due to the cost and complexity of production and their brittle nature. An exception to this overall decline is their use in small precision-shaped components where their specific properties are required, such as molded disc brake cylinders, saucepan handles, electrical plugs and switches and parts for electrical irons. Today, Bakelite is manufactured and produced in sheet, rod and tube form for hundreds of industrial applications in the electronics, power generation and aerospace industries, and under a variety of commercial brand names, including Garolite.
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:22am Cheri Pi:

Thanks @Pierre!
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:23am trouble:

jamesie that is a fabulous story! i love all the info and anecdotes we've got going on today! keep it coming
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:23am Bad Ronald:

Re Bakelite - anyone remember these things?
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:24am blackgreen13:

sadly, yes. also typewriters
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:25am trish:

my # growing up had three consecutive 0s...
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:27am abby:

a disposable plastic water bottle killed my ipod
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:27am Cheri Pi:

My friend with the yellow bracelet said that if you drop bakelite it can shatter, so we were wondering how billiard / pool balls were made of it? Would they not shatter on impact?
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:28am helpful elf:

The primary commercial uses for Bakelite today remain in the area of inexpensive board and tabletop games produced in China, India and Hong Kong. Items such as billiard balls, dominoes and pieces for games like chess, checkers, and backgammon are constructed of Bakelite for its look, durability, fine polish, weight, and sound. Common dice are sometimes made of Bakelite for weight and sound, but the majority are made of a thermoplastic such as acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) which is not as durable as Bakelite.
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:33am wiki wacky:

The exacting requirements of the billiard ball are met today with balls cast from plastic materials that are strongly resistant to cracking and chipping. Currently Saluc, under the brand names Aramith and Brunswick Centennial, manufactures phenolic resin balls. Other plastics and resins such as polyester (under various trade names) and clear acrylic are also used, by competing companies such as Elephant Balls Ltd. and Frenzy Sports.
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:36am kwhitehead:

Love the horns on this song!
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:37am trouble:

kids don't try resins/fiberglass at home. that is how eva hesse died of brain cancer
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:37am dc pat:

yeah but what are guitar picks made out of?? and drum casings, I once tried to put a cigarette out on my tomtom and it caught on fire!!
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:38am pierre:

so is an bakelite ashtray, a bad purchased item ?
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:39am dc pat:

Premier ashtrays are...
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:39am Cheri Pi:

Speaking of fiberglass, on my way to work this morning I jumped out of my car to pick up (from the side of the road) a fantastic double decker fiberglass lampshade. It has a small crack but otherwise is in perfect condition. Some products last forever.
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:40am blackgreen13:

it's used in pot handles and electrical insulators, so not flammable itself. Could be coated with something
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:45am Listener Bill:

Bakelite, the band, http://www.myspace.com/bakelite
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:45am Jennique:

Fiberglass made this car possible, so it can't be all bad.
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:47am blackgreen13:

Jennique, that would justify a lot!
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:48am Cheri Pi:

I'm glad for the warning Trouble, I've been curious about trying to fashion a fiberglass bullet shaped planter from the old Popular Mechanics instructions. I'll just leave that to the experts then...
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:49am trish:

peepers transformed!
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:52am dc pat:

Jennique, that car is f$ckin COOL AS HELL.
  Tue. 9/20/11 10:56am Sarah:

Thank you for allowing me to be woken up by Felt.
  Tue. 9/20/11 11:01am annie:

  Tue. 9/20/11 11:07am moose:

folk art museum in ny, my favorite, likely shuttered soon for good so everybody run over there
  Tue. 9/20/11 11:08am ?:

Did we pass the test?
  Tue. 9/20/11 11:08am Jennique:

dc pat - If I owned that car I would drive it everywhere. Ed "Big Daddy" Roth is my hero for making not only those cool cars but the comic book character Rat Fink.
  Tue. 9/20/11 11:10am Bad Ronald:

Rat Fink Rules! I had a model as a kid!

  Tue. 9/20/11 11:10am Dave in SoDak:

bakelite radios from the 40's... mmmmmm.....
  Tue. 9/20/11 11:11am Travis:

Burl Ives?? Actually, some of the best singing he ever did was when he ratted out fellow entertainers in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee in the late 40's...
  Tue. 9/20/11 11:12am trouble:

no way! burl ives, the voice of snowman narrator of rudolph, a ratter? ouch ouch
  Tue. 9/20/11 11:13am moose:

my first 2 45's as a little kid were let em in by wings and little white duck by burl ives
  Tue. 9/20/11 11:14am Jennique:

Bad Ronald - that is great! My older brother made all sorts of models and I just stared in wonder.
  Tue. 9/20/11 11:17am Rick:

Loved that seque from noveller into the nightingale
  Tue. 9/20/11 11:19am ED:

  Tue. 9/20/11 11:20am Travis:

Yup. Sad. but true, Trouble. From: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Burl_Ives
Ives initially displayed liberal political convictions and was a member of Hollywood Fights Back, a movement by entertainers in the late 1940s to counter the actions of the House Un-American Activities Committee in identifying Communists in the entertainment industry.[6] Ives was listed as being a member of a left-wing group in the Red Channels pamphlet, and was blacklisted by the government until he stood before the House Un-American Activities Committee, and convinced them otherwise. In the process, he named names and labeled several of his colleagues as Communists. This act allowed Ives to continue his work in the industry, and he would go on to work in both the music industry and the film industry.[1] He was accused of betraying his colleagues and political beliefs to save his career, however.

when I saw her perform this a year ago at issue project room, she mention Holy Mountain as the greatest film ever made (i agree with her)
  Tue. 9/20/11 11:58am john:

Her version is in a different key though:

  Tue. 9/20/11 11:59am john:

oh snap! i haven't heard THIS one
  Tue. 9/20/11 12:00pm yayson:

i dunno, i saw a preview for El Topo and that looked pretty good too :)
apparently someone (a french) later in the year is releasing a documentary exploring the almost-made Jodorowsky/Moebius DUNE movie from 1975
  Tue. 9/20/11 12:00pm john:

it was gonna be 6 hours long!! so the studios went with Lynch instead
  Tue. 9/20/11 12:03pm Robert:

Such a clever way to go out.
  Tue. 9/20/11 1:08pm CJF169 (Stroud England):
