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.

Brian, along with parts of Biscay Bay, Inchon, Korea (part of the genius of Douglas MacArthur's landing there during the Korean Conflict was that nobody ever considered defending against that, deeming it impossible), the Bay of Fundy has 50 foot+ tides, at the head of the Bay. Where I live it is ~28 feet median.

a series called HUNTING AOTEAROA. they just drive around killing anything that moves, then show you how to pluck, skin, carve and cook it all.

Trouble who's material does the beyonce film infer?
And let's be realistic there were hundreds of people that maintain the cruise liner known as Beyonce.
Also, i enjoyes the Hill Out Of Lemonade on my girar, and only, viewing. It's a well produced album, duh

True about Beyonce. Pipilotti Rist infinitely better.
Love that you mention things like that!
Roadshow charges $$$ admission,total fraud!

It looks like the Pipilotti Rist reference is a bit of a stretch, it's a bat, not a flower (Ever is over all is a wonderful video). Her copy of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's Rosas Danst Rosas was blatant (and uncredited as well)

I am voting "Yes" on whatever proposition this Hourglass track is associated with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 11:34am Adrian in London:

@Fred Saw a doc about dance on BBC4 the other week when De Keersmaeker said she found out about Beyonce using her dance so instead of taking the legal route released an instructional video showing people how to dance it. The result was squillions of girls making their own versions and posting them online, so it had a strange new lease of life.

@Brian UK, is there anything commercial free in the US?
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 11:45am Trouble:

merci, brian in UK. re: TV> we have public stations like PBS but you will see ads to underwrite the shows. not during the prgrams but at the end or beginning, yes. WKCR out of columbia university does a raga show on sunday nights. they stream so you can tune them in all over the world.

@franny Try digging through his archives too, franny. I'm pretty sure he's done it more than a few times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 11:46am Mike East:

@Brian - Public Television advertises for itself and its corporate underwriters, but that's it. Other than that, it would be the premium channels (HBO, Showtime, etc) that don't have commercials, but cost extra money.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/10/16 11:54am Dave in Vermont:

@Brian there is also public access or cable access which generally has local community oriented/produced programming. Like city council meetings or shows by the weird person down the street from hosting a call-in shows to talking about conspiracies or the power pf prayer or whatever they can think of that they just need to put out there.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/10/16 11:56am Ike:

@Brian in UK, people are mentioning PBS but the missing context is that compared to other state-funded broadcasters, PBS is incredibly anemic and has virtually no original comedy or drama programming of its own, just recycled BBC stuff mostly. It's also known for children's shows like Sesame Street (cheaper to produce, I'd wager) but now the first-runs of that have gone over to HBO.

Thanks for the feedback. From a quick look, not a great deal. PBS seems to get a bad press on this station.

PBS is not that great anymore. Very whitbread. NPR as well. Whitbread nonsense.

I watch PBS for scientific or investigative programming. Not interested in their entertainment offerings. Have a lovely week, Trouble. Don't forget your gardening tasks!
