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.

Good Morning Trouble,
Good Morning Everyone
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:04am scott:

morning trouble...I look forward to the best show of the week...This is the Modern World for sure!!!
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:11am trouble:

thank you scott that is very kind. GOOD MORNING ALL!
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:12am Poet:

The irony of your air-name is that your show is guaranteed to make me forget my troubles, if only for a mere three hours once a week.
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:18am N:

Talk about changes. YEars later he'd be licking up Nikki Sixx pee!
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:19am 55ffrr:

Good morning. Is today's show title-comment in reference to former president Ford or the Ford Motor Co.?
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:24am dc pat:

are Vicki and Ergo in love?
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:24am annie:

we can all get on with our lives now, oprah has decided to stop dieting! so much for acai!!
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:26am Steadman:

Oprah has been on a diet?
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:29am trouble:

post fordism is a sort of ref to post monolithic car industry...

my niece's car doesn't use gas or diesel, she drives a cozy coup
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:40am jaypee:

Trouble, I've only recently started listening to your show, but I must say, as a half-assed bird watched, I do enjoy attempting to identify the birds you play in the background during the break.

Take the Common Loon, for example. A noble bird.
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:41am jaypee:

Der.. "half-assed bird -watcher-"

Where's my coffee.
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:43am tombom:

a common loon? yes that does sound like a good description of a noble!!!!!
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:43am 55ffrr:

A great deal of my general disgust and contempt for mainstream society comes from driving my Hyundai alongside selfish suv's, pick-ups and general morons with liscenses.
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:45am Brian:

Yes, great movie. The kid was an excellent actor.
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:47am Tom:

That Flick sounds good just recently saw "HappyGo Lucky" hightly recommended too .. http://www.moviefone.com/search/Happy%20Go%20Lucky ..
  Thu. 12/11/08 9:56am Ralph Nadar:

To make you even more smug, you will be pleased to learn that Hyundai also cares for its workers.

  Thu. 12/11/08 10:00am Cecile:

I think the government desperately needs to bail out the Detroit Lions,.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:04am gumby:

Mornin' Everybody!
I still think THE BIG 3 BAILOUT is a great name for a power trio.
Cecile the Lions should bring back 85 year old Barry Sanders or something. They are awful.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:05am scott:

Cecile,any bail out for the Lions would only translate to more losses....
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:07am dc pat:

Trouble, you're killin' today!
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:11am bzul:

Be fun if sports intervention and geography combined to give us the Tampa Bay Louts.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:15am detroitdave:

Funny how many people don't know that MOST european and asian countries ALL poured money into THIER auto industries. Its lack of sales, not quality issues for the auto industry
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:17am Cecile:

Scott, fiscal or scoreboard? ;)
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:19am scott:

Cecile....uh... both!
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:22am Cecile:

I think even running the Lions under a civil service hiring system could only improve it. "Talent" isn't working.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:22am sugarwolf:

Fordism was one of those things discussed in grad school that I never really paid attention to.

I saw an Impeach Obama bumper sticker on an SUV this week. Ugh.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:25am scott:

talent never worked for the Lions because of...dare I say it..Coaching Cecile,maybe you are on to something with the civil service system...
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:26am Gladys Kravitz:

I know this delta 5 song is directed at me. I am not happy. you are so mean.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:27am trouble:

thanks dc Pat!
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:28am Uncle Arthur:

Oh my goodness.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:29am Cecile:

Can you imagine this conversation?
"I took the Civil Service test and qualified for jobs at the VA Hospital, The Post Office and to coach the Detroit Lions."
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:30am scott:

Cecile...that's too much.very funny!!!
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:31am bzul:

Oh, um, anything strange you saw over here out your windows, Gladys, was just...just a publicity stunt -- Yeah! --for a new ad campaign...again.....as we were just explaining to Larry, here..
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:31am dave in vermont:

awesome; sweet
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:32am jvgallagher:

Lil Mama vs Marnie Stern - what a great sound
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:32am dale:

Djarleeng, beautiful movie
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:33am annie:

i love it when a movie has great music,, and then you hear the song, get the movie in your head..
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:33am paulthepostman:

Afternoon morning posters AND Trouble.
Cecille - hope you are not being derogatory 'bout The Post Office !
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:34am dale:

never really realized how much like Dylan these lyrics are.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:34am annie:

i hear PTP, that you are going to have to walk faster now... 4mph... get you all computerized..
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:35am Cecile:

No, actually I'd easily pick the Post Office over coaching the Lions.

It has better working conditions and more prestige. ;D
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:36am GP:

Morning Trouble...Is this Lil Mama CD still available anywhere?
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:36am paulthepostman:

I want some of those paraplegic bouncing boomerang boots!
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:37am scott:

better job security with the post office
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:38am dc pat:

that movie had like 10 Kinks songs in it.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:38am Cecile:

true, that.

LOL! What?!?!?! A Wes Anderson film with a thin plot?
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:39am Liz B.:

I heard the Lil' Mama lipgloss song on Z100 while I was at the gym last week: victory is ours!
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:40am bzul:

Maybe the minority view but...That puts the ratio of Kinks songs to genuinely interesting moments in the film at 10 to 1.

Scott - I am merely a conduit of transmitted information.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:42am annie:

  Thu. 12/11/08 10:43am GP:

  Thu. 12/11/08 10:43am dc pat:

ah, I thought it was a good movie.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:44am scott:

PTP, keep up the good work....you conduit !
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:44am Desi Arnez:

I noticed, and appreciated, the way you pronounced "Cuba" (Koo Ba).
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:44am annie:

GP-where i come from, if i say "you owe me a beer" first, i get the beer. when we say the same thing at the same time. i say any excuse for a beer is fine with me.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:45am Pablo:

Check out the new 2009 Ford Fiasco at your local Ford dealer today!
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:46am bzul:

Many many thought so, DCP. I just thought it was the Relentlessly Self-Yanking Express. "Thin" is a kind term for it, though it was fat with...stuff.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:47am GP:

10-4 Annie.....mmmm Beer
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:49am bzul:

This set is the ideal weight, Trouble.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:49am Bad Ronald:

Moo for a brew!
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:49am GP:

Trouble, what does the v/a stand for after your album titles?
I only know this as the Victoria and Albert.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:49am tombom:

various artists
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:50am GP:

Duh * slaps head*...best Homer imitation.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:51am dale:

I miss Oprah's old body. You know, Ann Margarets...
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:52am trouble:

i wish v/a meant the victoria and albert, since i love that museum. but no it means that it is a compilation and it stands for various artists...
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:52am annie:

i think oprah sits too much; all that talking and schmoozing. she should have an aerobics talk show..puffing, huffing, chatting sipping acai..
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:52am sugarwolf:

I still haven't started any of the homemade (ho-made?) gifts yets....craft panic!!
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:56am bzul:

For Christmas, I'd like Tom Waits or Ralph Stanley to sing an "Oprah's Old Body" song.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:56am jon:

wow this fourtet stuff is great!
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:57am paulthepostman:

Steve Martin once opined that King Tut died for Tourism!
I'm kinda wandering what Christ died for...?
Answers on a post card, please.
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:58am Cecile:

bzul, maybe a western swing number where the guitarist utters a Bob Wills like "Acai!" before his solo?
  Thu. 12/11/08 10:59am Cecile:

Paul: everyone but Patti Smith's sins.
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:00am GP:

Thanks Trouble and tombom.
Sugarwolf..I know the feeling
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:00am sugarwolf:

Christ died so I could get an awesome glowstick cross necklace!! Only 25 cents.
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:01am annie:

see kids don't play those hand-clapping games anymore.. or do they? cecile, i like the way you think.. there's an awful joke about a gallows and christ..
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:01am Biblist:

Christ died to make the Crusades possible. They would have been pretty silly without him.
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:02am GP:

Does anyone know if any the stories on any other Gods have them dying just to save some stupid humans? Just asking cause I don't have time to research right now
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:02am bzul:

Thinkin' on that makes me happy, Cecile...but awwww..what the heck it's nuthin' but a pipe dream. Another Christmas disappointment.

And four-star answer to the J-man down question. You funny.
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:03am Jim Morrison:

Remember, children, you cannot petition the Lord with prayer.
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:04am pope pious:

he died so i could hang out at the vatican. and give me more money please,, plain brown wrapper, please.. wink wink.
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:06am Jesus Christ:

I died because they killed me

  Thu. 12/11/08 11:13am annie:

jaypee, i wonder if they paint his man-parts each spring like used to do in smithtown..
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:13am bzul:

I have trust issues and I think it's a gotcha question...like a henway, Grecian urn, piecost thing.
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:16am Li'l bobby:

That truly made my morning. I've always loved groovin', but now I understand it.
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:20am Brian C.:

Yea, the J's!

THis sound be the new small world theme song for the Disney ride.
  Thu. 12/11/08 11:22am Cecile:

jello in bemidji is like eating bangers and mash in London - it's a staple, not exotica.

Annie - However, notwithstanding Royal Mail Gestapo in chic leather trenchcoats, RM is introducing '...A New Way of Doing Things to Save Money' operation, entirely based on a computer system named after a Horse God called Pegasus running in the 3.15 at Utopia Town.
