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.

There is a huge parking lot for the newish one in Brooklyn. I hadn't been to the area since they started construction, and when I stumbled across it I was amazed. Doesn't seem like something you'd see in NYC.

hey , WFMU keeps playing the Maher Shalal Hash Baz record (thanks !) and saying it was "self-released" or no label -- in fact , the label is OSR , been mailing in every release on the label for 10 years . www.osr-tapes.com : ) just because we're insouciant & un-indie doesn't mean we don't not not exist !

Avatar 🎃 Tue. 5/17/16 11:21am Jeff:

The scriptwriters for Grantchester cranked up the pace a bit compared to the original James Runcie books. It's disconcerting, but probably for the better. The amount of time the original vicar spends actively engaging in self-abnegating inactivity with respect to pursuing any woman he's interested in is, believe it or not, even more protracted and suffocating than what's portrayed on the screen.

Oh, and phun phact: the writer of the books is the son of the former Archbishop of Canterbury.
