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.

  9:21am Bad Ronald:

128k MP3 coming thru fine over here...
  9:23am Ypsilanti Doug:

Everything's working great today. I had some weird behavior yesterday, though.
  9:27am Drew:

My stream won't work all of a sudden, but it could be that my company has firewalled it. It worked yesterday though. Oh well, I will just stare at the playlist longingly.
  9:28am John of the Stuy:

The WMP stream don't seem to be doin' its job. :( I'll probably end up listening to you this weekend with my girlfriend while we play Scrabble, anyway, but just thought you should know.
  9:30am Drew:

Oh, ok, yeah. It's the WMP stream for me, too. It just doesn't run and comes up with an error.
  9:31am Maestroso:

The 20k windows media stream doesn't work right now but the 20k real audio does.
  9:33am dale:

oooh, I made a mixed tape with this album...."red hooded woodpecker : one" over and over. my wife refuses to listen ever again.

  9:45am Ypsilanti Doug:

More heavily compressed pianos, please!
  9:51am Ike:

AAC+ stream sounds good here. Hey everybody, there's no need to suffer the horrible Windows Media stream (even when it's working) when you can install Foobar2000 even on a locked-down work PC. It plays everything.
  9:51am 55 Fingers:

Your homepage is sporting a fine pic from Malick's 'Days of Heaven'. Sndtrk-wise, check out 'Michael Clayton'.
  9:55am unlistener:

  10:01am Drew:

I can't install anything at work, no admin rights, I am a peon.
  10:04am esch oder anarchie!:

Drew, I've got no admin rights but just installed and am playing Foobar2000. Thanks Ike for the tip. Death to Real/WMP! (Yo anyone, if Foobar is a poison pill, please advise!)
  10:06am Ike:

Drew: Same here! Foobar2000 worked anyway! I was shocked!

No sign of poison.
  10:06am stingy d:

Crystal Stilts played my buddy's birthday party!
  10:36am Adrian in London:

Count d'Orgel, by Raymond Radiguet. It's fantastic.
  10:37am Bruce:

I boil my eggs for seven minutes. You?
  10:37am elvie:

here's a topic. is anyone here a librarian? i am considering applying to library school.
  10:38am sugarwolf:

favorite book I have read this summer = Nixonland.

There is a concession near where I work selling gelato for $6?! I will stick with ice cream.
  10:39am Egospoon:

I'm not even sure what librarians do exactly.
  10:39am christine:

best book = The Savage Detectives.
  10:40am kent goldings:

hi elvie. i'm a librarian. library school is a huge racket, try to do it for as cheap as you can. also, the jobs are not NEARLY as plentiful as they'd have you believe. one of my fellow libs has her masters and still has to work 3 part time jobs.
  10:41am Drew:

It's a little long.
  10:41am christine:

Drew -- TSD? It read like lightning for me.
  10:42am elvie:

thanks, kent. i am considering a dual degree, actually. with cinema studies or performance studies. am i a fool or what?
  10:42am kent goldings:

ps, elvie: any idea which schools you're looking at?
  10:42am gumby:

librarians are entrusted to extricate all the knowledge of the known universe from the chaos of the library
  10:43am hazmania:

Mondo Exotica: Sound Visions, Obsessions of the Cocktail Generation by Francesco Adinolfi
  10:43am gumby:

speaking of chaos I read 100 years of solitude. it was wonderful chaos
  10:44am Racerbi:

Hi trouble, I've been listening the past few months here at work and have been highly addicted. I look forward to the modern world like it's project runway!
  10:47am trouble:

thnaks! and project runaway was a shocker last night...
hey i just finished the dud avocado and it was a crazy,late 1950's paris summer read
  10:48am ~L:

I just finished reading "Anthem of a Reluctant Prophet", the main character is an Holden Caufieldseque teen, for the modern world. It's funny, bittersweet and compelling summer reading! I got my copy out of the local library, and it's going back today!
  10:49am Ypsi Doug:

I'm probably going to enroll in what USED to be "library school" at Michigan, which has now become the "School of Information." Particularly, the "Human-Computer Interaction" specialization. It's a pretty great program. My wife is a law librarian, which is also pretty interesting.
  10:49am lucky:


i'm thinking about library school as well. what are you doing for work now?
  10:53am Ypsi Doug:

Who, me? I manage a bunch of computer systems at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry.
  10:53am kent goldings:

ypsi doug - umichigan i've heard lovely things about. plus you'll get the instate tuition rate, so all the better. law librarians have it pretty good - there's not huge amounts of jobs, but the jobs that do exist are challenging and usually pay well. i highly recommend some level of specializing within your degree, all you wannabe librarians!
  10:53am Ypsi Doug:

Check it: http://www.si.umich.edu/
  10:54am gumby:

hey hazmania, is that a book? Is it about those ultralounge records?
  10:54am elvie:

sorry, i got called away from my desk for a moment. right now i am a post-production producer. i really hate it. but, i also am involved in theater special fx makeup in my spare time. i was looking at the dual degree program between nyu and the palmer school at liu. also pratt, of course.
  10:58am Drew:

Christine - Oh, cool, I should read it then. I saw it on my wife's nightstand a while back and it looked a bit daunting to me. She knocked it out within days but I'm no speed reader.
  10:58am christine:

NYU has a library science program?
  11:01am elvie:

well, NYU doesn't have a MLIS. but they have a dual degree program with the palmer school at Long Island University. you apply separately to the schools, but it enables you to get your MLIS from LIU (and you can take all classes on the NYU campus) and get an additional degree from any discpline in the college of arts and sciences at NYU. also, you are allowed to complete fewer credits if you do the dual degree program than if you completed each degree separately.
  11:03am christine:

Elvie: wow, I had no idea. I may look into that program myself. Thanks for the info.
  11:05am elvie:

oh good! the palmer school has offered the MLIS degree since the early or mid 90s, i think. but the dual degree with NYU has only existed for a couple of years, so no one really knows about it yet. you should go to gradschools.com. they have every program in the world listed, even lower profile ones.
  11:14am .........:

follow big blood w/ some fire on fire please
  11:16am d:

if you study to be a librarian at NYU must you study at the sinister bobst library?
  11:17am gumby:

happy hippie summer tunes - Yeah!!!!!
  11:19am Drew:

Play that Bruce song again. I think you missed it last week, but I was defending Bruce saying that the Merritt song is basically a lo-fi ripoff of stuff Bruce was doing circa Born in the USA/Tunnel of Love. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
  11:20am kent goldings:

so what kind of librarians do all y'all want to be?

books: just picked up Roxy Music Both Ends Burning, but i haven't read it yet. have any of you? and i just read a book about beer activism called Fermenting Revolution. it had great ideas, but the dude needed an editor.
  11:26am barney:

I will 2nd or 3rd or 4th The Savage Detectives. It went too quickly for a book its size. "Then We Came to the End" (Joshua Farris) was entertaining too, once we got used to narration in the first person plural.
  11:26am elvie:

yes, d, if you study at NYU to be a librarian, you have to get swallowed up by the ominous, suicide-inducing bobst library. but i also went to nyu undergrad, so i am now immune to its evil.
kent - i would like to be an arts librarian, or possibly more specifically a film librarian. i am interested in collections management, and also in curating/programming for libraries or museums. i am also interested in preservation. ooh! and i'm also interested in rare books. i can't narrow it down! it's all so lovely!
  11:32am kent goldings:

awesome, elvie! i do archives/special collections myself. i'd love to be at a museum or university some day, but i'm in a corporate archives right now. best of luck.
  11:36am Elias:

That Todd-O-Phonic Todd! He thinks he's so bad! You ain't so bad Todd! You ain't so bad!
  11:37am elvie:

thanks, kent!
  11:38am Ike:

I just read a brilliant book: "Glasshouse" by Charles Stross. It's set in a future where people can change/alter genders and bodies easily, and back up copies of themselves, but viruses have erased many memories, and much of history is forgotten. The characters enter a simulation of the "dark ages" of late 20th/early 21st century society, supposedly devised by history professors, but then they can't get out.
  11:41am lucky:

question for kent

kent-please, explain archives/special collections. does that mean that you handle anything that doesn't fall into a tradition type of library media or that there are specific collectionc/archive that you manage?

  11:42am elvie:

has anyone read the most recent jg ballard "kingdom come"? it disappoints, but somehow i can't put it down.
  11:44am Porp:

No one should be allowed to use the word "Soli" Solos will do, and it's a palindrome. Then again, Soli can be used in a palindrome, like "I lost Soli"
  11:47am Elias:

I've been running up and down the beach with Carl Weathers! You ain't so bad, Todd! You ain't so bad!
  11:48am kent goldings:

@lucky - boy howdy.

yeah archives/special collections is pretty broad. i do manage a specific archives for a specific organization, but these types of collections can be anything from rare books to photos to correspondence to company records to films to what have you. More info here: archivists.org
  11:53am lucky:


  11:54am Doug:

Is there seriously no Skream credit on this track? Didn't he produce this?
  11:58am Elias:

You a Phoney, Todd! That's my barstool at EJ's! You ain't so bad!
  12:02pm hazmania:

Hey Gumby - had to step out briefly. It is a book. Interviews, articles, and record reference on all things Exotica. The author is an Italian DJ that specializes in these things.
  11:09am Stephane:

Hi Trouble
Carla bugs me but I just love the way you spoke French last thursday!
your show is just great.
  6:21pm sebastian brahm:
