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.

though wfmu is pretty awesome with minimizing pledge requests, imagine if, once you pledged, the computer knew it, and so played music in place of pledge requests?

Avatar Tue. 11/6/12 9:50am trouble:

chickens are swell, thanks for asking. they are all cozy in a coop with lots of closed windows and doors. airholes up top for venting. my husband just put in an automatic coop door to close up the ramp door, goes down after dark if we can't get back in time, dark is so early now. we ordered a heater unit for their water, so that won't freeze. chickens hardy to this part of north america are good with the cold, they cozy up to each other.
  Tue. 11/6/12 9:50am dcp@:

yeah, this is sugary nice, what is it??
  Tue. 11/6/12 9:52am Brian in UK:

@Adrian did you get to see Efterklang & JG?
  Tue. 11/6/12 9:54am Adrian in London:

@Brian. God yes, Twice, in Brighton then managed to get a ticket for the Barbican from someone off Twitter. Ended up in the front row! They were just magnificent shows. I'm still buzzing from them. And I met JG. Lovely chap.
  Tue. 11/6/12 9:56am BodegaMan:

@Andrew Waterloo - I'd like to offer a counterpoint that Nate Silver works with math and facts, not witchcraft. That's why the true believers feel threatened. Ok, back to Trouble's great set.

Good morning trouble! A bummer about this past weekend but I hope you and the fam are well. Also as your Ohio corespondent have faith, Ohio has got your back Dirty Jerz!

I just noticed from a closing-time map that the polls in IN and KY close at 6pm. That's 2 hours earlier than Maine, for example. Weird.
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:10am Brian in UK:

@Adrian I wondered if you might finagle an interview with Mr Grant in the future as you have done one with SBP.
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:13am Adrian in London:

@Brian Oh I see. Sorry. Well, the website I was doing podcasts for is dead, so it's a case of girding my loins and either setting up on my own or finding another station that'll have me. But yes, I'd love to chat with him.
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:16am annie:

and i just saw that you can vote anywhere in nyc.... just walk in..do not have to vote at your polling place
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:16am G:

@Brian: States get to set their own processes for federal elections, within the broad boundaries set by federal laws. Before the 1830s, elections for state presidential electors were held on many different dates, sometimes varying by many months, till states were required federally to hold them uniformly on the first Tu after first Mon in Nov.

Modern closing times are all in the evening, after 9-5 work ends, but vary from 6 to 9PM local time.
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:17am Brian in UK:

@Adrian There must some new material on the way. He seems to have been touring the album forever. This is what people do these days. Beatles used to make 2/3 records, a film & tour the world all in a year. I know, old fart writing.

βrian: yeah it is weird, you'd think we could have some standards SOMEwhere.... Standards do rule, sometimes, ok?
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:19am Adrian in London:

@Brian New album next year. Recorded in Iceland. He played three songs from it during his set.
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:20am Adrian in London:

Thanks Trouble. I'm slowly putting interviews up onto Mixcloud for posterity.
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:23am Brian in UK:

@Adrian sounds good. We went to see Nosferatu (1922) with a live six piece ensemble at the Barbican last week. Captivating. Never seen it before. Max Schreck is wonderful. Sad little fella.
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:27am Adrian in London:

OK everyone, I know you're tied up with some election thingy, but THIS is the news story of the day! http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/nov/06/church-bell-ringer-rescued

@Adrian it is the sort of thing you would see in a silent comedy.
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:33am Lewis:

@Adrian in London - something very pythonesque in that scene...
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:34am Adrian in London:

@Lewis I'm thinking more Father Ted but yes. It's one of those things where you shouldn't laugh but can't help it.

new YLT (remixed...)! Props to ya, Trouble for playing Stupid Things.
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:38am Lewis:

@AinL - yes python really reflects my limited knowledge, but it is the absurdist that @trouble points to that I was enjoying.
  Tue. 11/6/12 10:52am Adrian in London:

Absurd indeed. Snigger.

Just seeing Father Ted makes me smile
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:03am kwhitehead:

Libertarians=Republicans who want to smoke pot or "rugged individuals" who don't need help? I'm confused.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:04am Van in DC:

Less government basically. Not more. You know, that "freedom" thing.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:06am Andrew Waterloo:

We need the freedom to bemoan the fact that there are some people who have the nerve to be different.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:08am βrian:

I don't worry so much about big government as I do about what's displacing it.

(we've had nina but where is francoise?)
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:09am kwhitehead:

There are quite a few folks in my neck of the woods that are pretty pleased about "big government" right about now but, whatever floats your boat.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:09am Frisbeetarian:

The government puts very few restrictions on my freedom, especially since I have no desire to partake in illegal drugs, own assault weapons, carry a pistol on my person in the densely populated state in which I live, or produce my own unpasturized cheese. The goverment does, however, protect my freedom to live without others negatively affecting my life by doing those things. So I guess it's a wash.

Hi. Just got back from voting. 2 hours in line
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:12am Adrian in London:

@Frisbeetarian You can't make unpasteurised cheese in the US? What are the sanctions for doing so?
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:13am robert in Amsterdam:

grear cecile! it's wortwhile!
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:14am Cecile:

you can, but it must be aged 60 days.
Listeria is the main concern.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:14am robyn:

what a fun set. thanks trouble! cecile what state are you in? that sounds terrible.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:15am Cecile:

It's a small price, Robert.
And to do it without harassment or violence is something to be treasured. Saw a couple of older Somali women working as election judges. They were bursting with pride.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:15am βrian:

The cheese regulations vary by state but, typically, unpasteurized cheesed can't be sold unless first aged for a minimum period – 6 months, I think.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:15am The Cheese Liberation Army:


  Tue. 11/6/12 11:16am Cecile:

nope, 60 days.

  Tue. 11/6/12 11:16am Andrew Waterloo:

Here in Ontario the there's a lot of controversy over unpasteurized milk.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:17am Cecile:

A cheese stand selling fresh unpasteurized goat cheese under 60 days sells it as "fish bait". You can't sell it as human or animal food, but they wiggle around it by calling it bait.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:17am βrian:

From the pedia on the "Cheese Nun": "... Rémy Grappin ... said that she had studied the biodiversity of raw-milk cheese fungi and no one else was fighting harder to preserve it in a world of standardization and pasteurization."
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:18am kwhitehead:

Just found "Affectionate Punch" on vinyl on Saturday. So happy and nice work Ms. Trouble!
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:18am Cecile:

Andrew, I hate to be a killjoy, but Jeezus, the microbes that can live in milk or beer are some nasty shit. Even though I did enjoy the fish bait immensely.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:19am βrian:

60 days, yes. Damn, I loves me some stinky cheese!
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:19am Cecile:

I am starting to really feel the Associates after all these years.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:20am Adrian in London:

@CLA Thanks. I rarely eat cheese, given that it's basically just fat and I'm sort of pesci, but that's interesting. *imagines someone holding up a convenience store with half a pound of Gruyère*

  Tue. 11/6/12 11:22am Andrew Waterloo:

@Cecile, I'm lactose intolerant. I'm not very passionate about the whole milk thing, as long as I can buy 12 year-old white Canadian cheddar I am happy.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:23am Cecile:

I took a risk with that goat cheese, and asked a ton of questions. I am super-cautious about fresh raw milk products. We've had some deaths around here recently from listeria from liquid raw milk
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:24am βrian:

Personally, I wouldn't make a habit of consuming raw milk. But cultured raw-milk cheese is a whole 'nother thing. The good critters win out.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:24am Cecile:

Andrew, aged cheddar is one of life's greatest treasures ever.

I haven't voted for several years because my US hometown mails out my absentee ballot in late October and it arrives a couple of days before election day. I could mail in my vote, but it wouldn't arrive in the US until about Nov 15.

  Tue. 11/6/12 11:32am erella:

Hello Annie! Hi Trouble. Thank you for the Please Vote Rant. All over the world people DIE in the effort of voting. Out of respect I always vote. I cannot imagine what would happen if Romney was to win this election. How can people want to grant this crazy man power?
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:32am Cecile:

common, we don't even go up to the UP until after Election Day. My husaband is an old-school moderate Republican, and I'm a liberal-ra-tarian, and we come off like flippin' Yippies up there.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:33am Cecile:

C, you should do it. If it's a close one, your vote will really matter.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:34am Lewis:

@Cecile - gotta love those old-school moderate republicans! my best friend comes out of that camp and boy could we use more thinkers like him.

Heading out to vote, hopefully the wait will not be too long. Hasta la pasta!
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:36am Cecile:

Lewis, my heart has been broken since some of the most principled people I know were driven out of the party in the late 70s by the Moral Majority. Which is so ironic I can't even fathom it.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:36am Erik:

With MORE government a station like wfmu would not exist.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:37am Cecile:

of course, my husband hasn't ever voted for a Republican for President. Which tells you a hell of a lot about the GOP in the last 35 years.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:38am Lewis:

@cecile - indeed I knew things were bad when I yearned for Goldwater as a voice or reason. Same voting record with my friend...
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:39am Cecile:

exactly,Lewis. Goldwater was terrifying!
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:39am Van in DC:

Love Meg Baird!
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:40am duke:

@cecile the republican party has been off its meds for quite a while. I don't think they even pretend to not be crazy anymore.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:41am Van in DC:

Love Meg Baird! AND raw unadulterated freezing cold moo juice!
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:42am Cecile:

duke, I know.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:43am Tiago in NCL:

surely the question is not more/less government but what type, or am I too old fashioned european?
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:44am dcp@:

Tiago: gotta keep it simple for Amurkins...
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:45am Ike:

@Erik, wrong. Not all big gov't is bad. Some is, but not all. It took a strong FCC/gov't to require a non-comm/educational section of the FM radio band. Without that, WFMU would never have existed.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:46am BadGuyZero [Dallas, TX]:

I just voted!

Though you wouldn't know it as Dallas decided to pass on getting "I voted" stickers. FAIL!
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:46am Lewis:

@Tiago - no you are right on the money, but as @dcp says, sometimes we gets confused if we thinks too hard..
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:48am common:

@cecil I bet. Ah, humans. strange creatures.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:50am Cecile:

I think it goes deeper than that. There are still big parts of this country that are barely settled, and it keeps alive the notion of self-sufficiency. Never mind that you can't really be self-sufficient in a city or burbs the way you can on a farm or wilderness.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:51am Lewis:

In my dabbling with putting together playlists etc. I have been collecting songs about thinking. "I think about stuff" by those darn accordions would be appropriate right about now... (well not so much in Trouble's set, but wrt the comment side of things)
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:51am Titus in GA:

i'm jetting out, Trouble. i'm happy you're back in the swing of things @ The Magic Factory. happy voting!
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:53am Cecile:

But at the same time, there are a lot of inana and idiotic laws on the books, and I really feel like people are talking "freedom" but at the same time trying to tell me what I can do in the privacy of my own home...
Avatar Tue. 11/6/12 11:53am trouble:

thanks titus! rock on
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:55am dcp@:

Cecile: right, the people that scream "small government" the loudest are the ones trying to require IDs to vote. My friends in PA were asked for IDs (not the law there) and they asked to see the poll worker's ID.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:55am XYZ:

Longtime listener, first time commenter just popping my head in for a sec to recommened Joe Bageant's great book Deer Hunting with Jesus to anyone wondering why so many people vote for the bad guys. Cuz certainly many are asses, but not all of 'em are. (Hot tip: you can get a lot of what's in the book on his website for free, broken down into essays...)
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:57am Lewis:

cool - thanks @XYZ
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:57am Erik:

If you live in america do you feel represented by your BIG government. Ike ,I agree not all government is bad but what we have now sucks. And like tiago said it is a question of what kind of government.
  Tue. 11/6/12 11:58am Van in DC:

Thanks for the tunes Trouble.
  Tue. 11/6/12 12:15pm Van in DC:

Not so much the political commentary though. Do any of us come here for that? Sigh. DAY BE DONE already! :(
