A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

That's really kind of you, Ken! But it's too far out of your way. I have a show Fri. night, and K8's big benefit concert is Sat. night, so it seems like it's just bad timing for me. I will invite everyone birding on Newtown Creek later this summer!

As a Canadian, I'm going to just throw it out there that we have at least 2 major French variations - there's Quebecois French, but also Acadian French. Acadian is closer to European French

@Trouble I only know that because I did French immersion as a kid, and we learned Acadian French, so when you get to Quebec you still can't understand anyone
  9:47am Andres:

Good morning, Trouble and birds! All of my French teachers (here in Canaduh) were, as a group, the most passionate about the subject they taught. Partly why it was amongst my favourite subjects. Pronunciation lesson appreciated. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47am PizzaWolf:

is anyone else still waiting on swag from the fundraiser? the weather is getting nice and I wanna sport my tees!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50am ChukAmok:

PizzaWolf: Swag takes awhile to fold, organize, pack and ship, and there's likely a whole lot of it. The wait can take months, especially considering when the station has to go on lockdown due to covid concerns.
Avatar This Is The Modern World with Trouble Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 9:50am Handy Haversack:

I think the recent lockdown must have slowed things, PizzaWolf, since there were no volunteers to fold and stuff. SWAGVENT will come! It merely tarries.

@YetiBob: I have MANY radio shows on WFMU that I set my schedule around. Scott Willaims' show on Weds afternoons, Trouble's TITMW, Garbage Time on Tuesdays, EFD's show, Radio Ravioloi, Feelings with Michele with One L....

But my top level FAV is DotDash on Friday mornings...

I am a fan or the ambient krautrock kosmichemusik and jazz and Miles' electric albums from the 70s.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03am ChukAmok:

Fauci said yesterday that the U.S. was "out of the pandemic phase", which is obviously a good thing but does not necessarily mean that we are completely out of the woods. With all these different mutations and sporadic outbreaks around the world (especially in places where the vaccines haven't made it, or where there's widespread resistance) we may never be completely free of CV-19.
Best to make the most of it when the doors re-open and do something worthwhile that you love...Like volunteering!

My favorite Pete Cosey story - he was hired to back up Howlin' Wolf on his "psychedelic" album (made at the request of the recod company which Wolf was not happy with).
Avatar This Is The Modern World with Trouble Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 10:14am YETI BOB:

According to Pete Cosey, during the recording sessions, Howlin' Wolf "looked at me and he said 'Why don't you take them wah-wahs and all that other shit and go throw it off in the lake – on your way to the barber shop?'"

Pete Cosey was on Muddy Waters' "Electric Mud" album too.

Agharta "confused" a lot of people. Eugene Chadbourne has written some interesting liner notes for that, or it might have been for Pangaea.

Morning Trouble and all! Love the idea of a birding meetup! I’ll be there in spirit. We’ve been watching plenty of avian critters from the kitchen window in our new place in Gardiner. Nice pond behind the house with kingfishers, red winged blackbirds, wood ducks, the occasional raptors, also chickadees, finches, flickers, cardinals, woodpeckers and so many others.

I often use a Golden bird guide from 1960 that was my aunt's. Basically, you can shift almost every range 100 miles north to take into account the last sixty years of warming.

Is there a kind of bird that isn't a woodpecker that preys on carpenter bees? Asking on behalf of my garage.

Greetings Trouble and good Troublemakers.
Stopped with my son on the west side of Astoria Park by the pool upon hearing a woodpecker going at it. Up there overhead one was going at it for a bit. Thought it was kind of rare for these parts but I wouldn’t know. Pretty neat for us.

Returned from grocery shopping this morning feeling distinctly apocalyptic. Price gouging going on and shelves empty. Some things bought last week are up 25 fucking percent!
Read an interesting piece recently by someone from SE Asia where the country’s in a state of collapse, cautioning people that a collapsed state doesn’t look like a sci-fi movie but a more banal acceptance of more and more deprivation, suffering, institutional/infrastructure breakdowns and
inaccessibility as a new normal. As far as I can see there’s been abundant evidence of that all.
This is how revolutions start in earnest.

All my European friends for years were fond of saying that people are too soft and pampered to entertain seriously any thoughts of action, that is, until people are hungry.
We may be at the doorstep soon, folks.

Just about time to gather in solidarity to make some trouble about it, doncha think?

Threemoons, just to be aware that I think Merlin reports location data to Google (Cornell Lab, which I otherwise think is really great, seems to have used Google in its apps and in its tools for reporting bird counts, which is what keeps me from participating).

Thanks, Yeti Bob; will check out today!

Personally , I couldn’t be happier if the empire flops dead. Enough carnage and pillage around the world, just so we can have cheap disposable toys stuffed into our attics and basements. It’ll be because we never stopped to think that so much that was being produced by cheap slave labor across the globe (often by children too).

There’s some comeuppance coming.

Thanks again.

A great article in Processed World many years ago described growing up in Los Alamos in the 50s. Everybody there was working on Manhattan Project and legacy projects, but all information was classified so no shop talk was allowed. It made for weird cocktail parties

I heard offical inflation rate is 8%, but ACTUAL REAL inflation rate is like 15% or even more. Just look at used car prices, good luck getting a decent used car for under $20k nowadays, if you can find one.
