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.

"Sage" doesn't mean wise in French, it's a faux ami. It only means wise in the sense of well-behaved, having self control.

I've never understood people who say they don't like jazz. I grew up with my parents listening to it constantly, so to me it just seems elemental. It's like saying you don't like the sound of wind.

There are so many types of jazz. Some people associate jazz with elevator music or Kenny G, or with loud blaring trumpets and think that's all there is.

@Sam My parents had a literal shoebox of cassette copies of Kenny G's Christmas album, from people who a) needed to get them a Christmas present, b) knew they liked jazz, and c) said to themselves "Oh, I've heard of him!"

i don't think its a holiday thing bc its just specific trains, like yesterday it was the 1 train (which i needed to take home) and today it was the 3 train (which i needed to take to work) and today a train stopped working at wall street and i was stuck in a tunnel for 20 mins

Discogs reports that Tuesday Weld song was produced by David Axelrod. In other news, I had no idea until moments ago this was a Neil Young cover. Always thought it was a St. Etienne original. The Andrew Weatherall mix is next level (of course, the Lou Vega/Ken Dope mix is also superb).
