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 !
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:02am Pieter:

Good morning Trouble
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:02am fishmonkeystew:

Good morning, Trouble and all!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:04am PMD:

Morning Trouble and all. Looking forward to the show!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:04am James oid:

Morning Trouble!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:04am Adrian in London:

Hi Trouble and everyone. Saw Marissa Nadler play last night. She was great. But no fire alarms! The venue, The Luminaire, has painted on the wall things such as SHUT UP: no-one has paid to listen to you talking to your pals. If you want to talk to your pals, go outside and talk.

Finally, sanity reigns.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:05am jaypee:

Yay.. good morning, Trouble, fellow listeners...
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:06am George Eliot:

good morning trouble and everyone.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:06am texas scott:

the modern world is in trouble
and joan of arc still lives.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:06am Bad Ronald:

Ah yes Thursday morning, time to get in to Trouble!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:08am George Eliot:

scott, jeanne d'arc rules, along with all the other women who fought beside her
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:09am Parq:

"There's a big foot stepping on my face" pretty much sums up my week.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:10am Rob:

bonjour déranger! :-)
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:11am The Man:

.......And stay there Mr. Parq!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:14am Freddy from: West Orange Plumbing Supply:

Isn't this the song from the Blue Oyster in Police Academey?
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:15am Listener James from Westwood:

It is indeed!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:16am listener mark:

good morning trouble
good morning to the whole wonderful world wide web we weave with wires
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:16am jaypee:

Freddy, yes it is! Proof: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTJMerul33E
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:17am listener mark:

sounds like the muppet show
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:18am trouble:

good morning all! i should know better that to start a show with a 30 second cut...all crazy from there on out.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:21am Freddy:

Awesome, thanks Jaypee
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:31am chris:

fishing with john!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:33am Bill W:

IN A WORLD where Trouble hates the "Voice of God"....
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:34am fishmonkeystew:

Fishing with John is AWESOME! Very chucklesome.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:36am jaypee:

HEY HEY HEY.. Police Academy is a GREAT movie.. you take that back Trouble!!!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:36am Police Academy Producer:

Oh. So now you are BETTER than me?!!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:36am still b/p:

Ain't no bulletin here...but that Northern Soul selection was the kind of sound that I don't think ever could be duplicated today in flavor, style, recording characteristics and sum effect, regardless of the skills of any contemporary artists and technicians that might wanna try.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:37am Listener James from Westwood:

Truth be told: After about the 3rd "Police Academy" sequel, "Bimbo" and its context are about the only watchable parts of the film.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:39am chris:

Let's not pretend that any of the Police Academy movies are actually good!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:42am annie:

i watched "evil alien conquerers" last night. wow. how campy, but reaaly stupidly funny. you'd do better to get "small" before you watch it.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:44am Police Academy Producer:

I forgot. If it appeals to a wide audience it must be crap.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:45am Freddy from: West Orange Plumbing Supply:

Chris, the Police Academy movies are good up until 6 and 7
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:49am Freddy from: West Orange Plumbing Supply:

I love this song, it makes me want to watch Night of the Living Dead, and Dawn of the Dead
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:50am A Critic:

Come on, only the first 17 or 18 PA movies were good
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:52am listener mark:

Yes Nick Drake!!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:54am listener mark:

Now I have to break out the *fruit tree* 4 CD set.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:54am still b/p:

In a world....where spoofhead passions run deep....
In a time...when loyalty is tested, and everyone must choose...
In a comment space ready to explode...two contenders arose to vie for glory and compare the size of their shticks....But only one can triumph, in a battle that...would...change...everything...
Police Academy vs. Fishin' With John: Day of Armakiddin!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:55am seamus:

when will the academy recognize michael winslow's lifetime achievements!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:56am Vivian:


Looking for movie rental suggestions, excluding Police Academy. Something besides your run of the mill. Go!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:58am The Great White Whale:

Yo Trouble! GREAT WHITE WHALE On Board!
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:59am fishmonkeystew:

Little Otik, also known as Otesánek, by Jan Svankmajer. Disturbingly yummy.
  Thu. 5/7/09 9:59am The Great White Whale:

  Thu. 5/7/09 9:59am George Eliot:

Vivian, anything by wim wenders. and that classic french collection "blue", "white", "red"
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:00am The Great White Whale:

  Thu. 5/7/09 10:01am listener mark:

mama roux was the queen of the little red, white, and blue.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:01am Vivian:

George, Wings of Desire ranks among my favorites. You're on the right track.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:02am doug from dc:

Film? Two interesting obscurities from well-known directors: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059719 and http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080796. These aren't widely discussed, but have stuck with me.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:02am George Eliot:

ok, now i know the direction to take. getting my list......
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:02am seamus:

sun-ra's "space is the place". a must rent
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:05am The Great White Whale:

The Legendary Stardust Cowboy??
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:06am The Great White Whale:

Etes-Vous Trouble?
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:08am 255:

Does anyone watch that show Free Radio?
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:08am Rob:

Hi Vivian, if you havent already you might like Jean de Flourette" & "Manion of the Spring"
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:10am Feral Cat:

Lost Highway by David Lynch has a real murderer in it...Robert Blake!!! And Girls Rock! The Movie, is a new documentary about girls learning to rock at camp.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:10am The Great White Whale:

  Thu. 5/7/09 10:10am GP:

Drive-by greetings to all....busy today..
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:11am Vivian:

Great suggestions DCPAT, Rob, fishmonkeystew and George. Keep 'em coming!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:11am George Eliot:

hhmm, vivian, most of the movies i watch are on hulu. not sure how many are in blockbuster or netflix. oh!! just saw "deeply" from 2002. and rob is right on about those two movies. i can also suggest "Dead Man" wirh johnny depp, this music is reminiscent of that
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:13am Vivian:

George, if it helps, I'm going to the local indie movie rental place, where they stock the popular and obscure.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:13am texas scott:

hey annie,where did you get 'evil alien conquerers'?
sounds like my kind of movie...
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:14am listener mark:

Some of the clothing in "Old Navy" have these little tags which say, "Made In Vietnam." Who could've guessed back then that forty years later they'd make polo shirts to sell in US.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:14am trouble:

the jim jarmusch movie " dead man" that neil young did the score to is a superb movie!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:15am dc pat:

hey! I didn't say anything...but if I did, I'd say the 10th Victim. But good luck finding it...
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:15am doug from dc:

Simon of the Desert has really poor production values, but it's one of Bunuel's funniest. He ran out of money before he could finish it, and used a random on-set occurance to end it. Won't spoil it though. That line, "I want to go back to my pillar" sticks with me to this day.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:15am Rob:

Movies: "nines" was cool, "Napoline Dynamite": funny, "Waking life" thought provoking
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:15am George Eliot:

I saw it on hulu last night. want the link?
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:16am Faust Gertz:

Here are some films I recall enjoying and haven't thought about for a ong time: 'Hol volt, hol nem volt' aka 'A Hungarian Fairy Tale', 'W.R. - Misterije organizma' aka 'WR: Mysteries of the Organism', 'Hop', and 'Chameleon Street'. Might as well give a shout of for 'Point Blank' (1967).
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:16am GP:

Listener Mark...Capitalism transcends all borders and political differences...plus its 10cents a day for sewing and stuff so you can't beat that!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:17am seamus:

dutch 90's movie, "antonia's line" was a very good movie
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:18am dc pat:

netflix has 10th Victim - nutty Italian 60's crap with Marcello Mostrianni and Ursela Andres
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:18am GP:

Rib, both of my young kids LOVE Napoleon Dynamite. They have watched it probably 50 times and can pretty much quote the whole movie. It is one of the few semi-adult movies that I can let them watch.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:18am Jamesie:

Do you like Jaap Blonk? here is plug for my show this Saturday at 15:00 EST.... (Res FM)
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:18am George Eliot:


this was amazing
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:19am vivian:

My eyesight is horrible, I don't know if I can watch a movie on a computer monitor, but thank you George. I have to put Dead Man on my list.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:19am ta da:

i remember hungarian fairytale - wonderful movie
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:19am Georgie Peorgie:


too damn not-funny, it was funny
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:20am George Eliot:

you might be able to rent them. if they're on hulu, they mu7st be in netflix or some such thing..
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:22am seamus:

"trust" by hal hartley is one of my fav's
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:22am fishmonkeystew:

How to Draw a Bunny is a pretty good doc about artist Ray Johnson.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:22am Ike:

Speaking of SE Asia, check out John Boorman's "Beyond Rangoon" (1995) with P. Arquette and Frances McDormand.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:22am Freddy from: West Orange Plumbing Supply:

What do you guys think theTop 5 Worst Movies ever made are?
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:22am dale:

Welsh looks like it should be found on an alien sphere!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:24am 55ffrr:

If you don't mind subtitles, check out a Kieslowski film sometime. I recommend any from his 'Decalogue' or 'Red" from the 3 color trilogy. Also, 'Happy-Go-Lucky' is scary-fun.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:25am Parq:

Viv, if your nabe has an indy rental place that stocks the obscure and off-off-Hollywood, you should get to work having it landmarked. When Kim's went under, it signaled the end of an era, if not an eon.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:25am Cecile:

If you read the Mushroom Planet books, the Welsh originally came from there. What a great series.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:25am texas scott:

thanks,everyone.i forgot about hulu.

yippee! my odd day just got weirder.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:26am seamus:

"i was a teenage zombie" was one of the worst movies i can think of
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:26am Feral Cat:

I'll fly away oh glory....love Allison's voice in the morning...yeah!!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:26am George Eliot:

i love hulu. and they get indy shorts too.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:27am JCityJensen:

Great Set this morn!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:27am listener mark:

Alison Kramer and Gillian Welch?
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:27am George Eliot:

walking the pup be right back.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:28am ta da:

worst movie - anything with batman in it
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:28am GP:

Allison Krauss...beautiful..her voice ain't too bad either!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:28am JCityJensen:

have you seen this 'great' movie : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=933FExsfU3c
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:28am Thu. 5/7/09:

that IS odd.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:29am listener mark:

DJ Trouble you are firing on all eight cylinders this morning. (That's good.)
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:29am cecile:

Classy movies I like:
Stranger than Ficition
Dersu Uzala
The Fall
The Iron Giant
The Third Man
Annie Hall
American Splendor
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:29am Freddy from: West Orange Plumbing Supply:

Touble, can you play me some Dan Tyminski
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:31am Ike:

I second that, 55ffrr. Kieslowski's brilliant "The Double Life of Veronique" warped, lit up, and broadened my young mind at the old Key Cinema in D.C.

And I agree with many of Cecile's faves, esp. "Iron Giant."
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:31am JCityJensen:

have you seen the time of the wolf?

  Thu. 5/7/09 10:31am Ike:

GP, the reason you can let your kids can watch "Napoleon Dynamite" is because it's a Mormon movie. The Mormons are using fam.-friendly movies to secretly brainwash your kids with religious propaganda hidden deeply within Jared Hess's snark. Although they're not as powerful as Disney... yet. ;)
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:32am Cecile:

Less classy movies I still adore:

Bridget Jones' Diary
Music and Lyrics
Old School
Wedding Crashers
Talladega Nights
Blades of Glory
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Wayne's World
The Transporter
House of Flying Daggers.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:32am dc pat:

I also like Naked by Mike Leigh
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:33am cecile:

I liked the dance at the end.
That was shockingly un-Mormon in its hip gyrations.
For me, it had a feel of where I grew up. Slow, static and weird.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:34am dc pat:

worst movie: Battlefield Earth which I watched last night because I was sick.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:34am GP:

LOL Ike---I'm watching out for them!!

Cecile has the other kids favorites movies on her list: Iron Giant ,and Wall_E..they also love "My Neighbor Totoro", etc.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:34am Cecile:

that probably made you sick in and of itself.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:35am GP:

Don't forget the "Toxic Avenger", but NOT a kids movie!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:36am ta da:

anyone know what us war is considered the forgotten war?
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:36am cecile:

I'm a big kid. I love Howl's Moving Castle and Kiki's Delivery Service.

Also, I really liked Coraline recently and I'm forgetting something...
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:36am Parq:

. . .in his [W's] *successful* attempt. And, as was pointed out often, the press that led the charge against the war machine in the 60s was Bushie's biggest cheerleader in recent years.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:37am Cecile:

And don't forget schlock classics like Bachelor Party and Wayne's World, and Valley Girl
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:37am Parq:

Five movies that I hated, despite the huge number of people who love them

1. Harold & Maude
2. The Field
3. Sandlot
4. Chocolat
5. Vicki Christina Barcelona
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:39am chris:

Sorry, I had to run an errand. None of the Police Academy movies are very good, sorry :)
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:40am cecile:

Oh, hai, Trouble, I saw Flight of the Conchords Sunday night.
You have to google, "Jemaine gold pants" Just saying.

I liked the Sandlot. I didn't see the rest. I hated Crouching Tiger, Hidden
Dragon. They were all dicks and the kung fu was not all that.

The Police Academy movies are kind of lousy, but I still laugh at them in spots.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:40am Tom Lyle:

Trouble's show always improves my crappy mood. Thank you.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:40am dc pat:

A movie I hate despite rave reviews: Breaking the Waves, fekkin dreadful.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:40am GP:

"This is Spinal Tap".....no?

I got to see them live this past weekend on their 25th
( good gawd?) reunion tour..very funny and actually good musicians.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:41am Feral Cat:

Harold & Maude! Stranger Than Fiction! Wall-E!!! Rosemary's Baby! Pecker! Grizzly Man! Happiness!!! Hysterical Psycho (Tribecca Film Fest '09)! Adaptation! Sordid Lives!!!!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:42am chris:

this is beautiful
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:42am Cecile:

It looks terrible, what I've seen from plot descriptions.

The Prestige was also terrible.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:42am doug from dc:

Eyeless in Gaza is an old fave. "Under the Leaves..." especially.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:42am cecile:

spinal tap is amazing.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:43am chris:

One of my fav Fishing wirth John moments: Dennis Hopper continually popping sugar pills in the Southeast while JOhn continues to not catch fish
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:43am George Eliot:

y tu mama tambien. wonderful flick.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:43am dc pat:

I'm also a big fan of just about anything by Kurosawa
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:44am texas scott:

'waiting for guffman' is the best movie...EVER!!!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:44am trouble:

hey tom tom lyle! thanks for the good words...
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:44am dc pat:

I like when Tom Waits, in his biker boots and shorts, gets sea sick. The Fishing with John is one of my fave songs EVER!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:45am George Eliot:

anything with dennis hopper, blue velvet and "carried away"......oooh, waiting for guffman .. a hoot!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:45am Cecile:

Oh, City of God.
And The Dog (or Bombon El Perro alternate title)
Texas Scott, I would say that about Best in SHow, although Guffman is a close second.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:45am sugarwolf:

Valley Girl is probably the last good thing Nicholas Cage has been in!
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:46am chris:

2 of my favs:
House of Flying Daggers
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:46am sugarwolf:

my DVD player was not working, but I think I fixed it... for now.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:46am chris:

and the scene in Kung Fu Hustle with the dulcimer-like weapon
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:48am GP:

Trouble, speaking of Joan of Arc, the odd coincidence is that while I was surfing around Wikipedia early this am before your show, I ran into this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dihya. A North African version - never heard of her before.
  Thu. 5/7/09 10:48am cecile:

Chris, both are awesome.
And Daggers has the action, the sexiness and the emotion that Crouching Tiger lacked.

Sugarwolf - you know it. You know it!

Kung Fu Hustle is also awesome. As are Drunken Master 1 and 2

  Thu. 5/7/09 11:02am dc pat:

that silent movie about Joan of Arc is pretty great. Don't know if that was mentioned above...not sure which one, Passion of Joan of Arc?

Stu: who's talking obscure? We're just scraping the surface.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:04am George Eliot:

vivian, you getting all these down?

re: joan of arc: she's my idol and hero since i was 8 or 9. i have hard time watching any movie about her. and not to mention lenny's song. do you all know she was pretty short, and not too attractive? there is an amazing bronze of her at the hirshorn in wash dc

I can find fault with everything, but when we saw Synecdoche, NY, a few months ago, the degree of indignation and hostility stirred in my girlfriend at it's perceived awfulness was somethin' to behold.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:08am JCityJensen:

best kids musical ; Bugsy Malone - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sA_0cvd1EUM
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:09am GP:

Got to see the painting "Joan of Arc" by Jules Bastien-Lepage up close. It is insanely large, like 8 feet tall. Joan is larger than life and I don't remember the term, but it describes the feeling you get when looking at great art or hearing great music..that woozy, lightheadeness..well I had it in spades...remarkable painting...HIGHLY emotional.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:09am Synecdoche:

Decline, failure, and death depress people, unless they are openminded about painful things... Duh...
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:09am Bad Ronald:

Anyone else hearing an echo?
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:11am cecile:

Well, I'm off to dreamland, ladies and gents to the lovely strains of trouble's show. Later, taters.

No Bad Ronald..sounds OK here. I'm on the 32KMp3 strream.

Thanks Trouble for the ya ho wa info.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:11am GP:

Rest easy Cecile..hope you feel better soon.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:12am George Eliot:

mark twain wrote a book describing joan's passion. i cannot find a picture of the statue at the smithsonian, bummer
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:12am dc pat:

take it easy C.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:14am Cecile:

thanks all ya'll!
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:14am Bad Ronald:

Thx GP - may be a local issue...

Rest easy Cecile!
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:16am George Eliot:

trouble, what do you know about this allegation that jeanne was not burned at the stake?
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:20am trouble:

i don't know about that george elliot. But she is the patron saint of france, had to do a little to get that title...
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:21am George Eliot:

i ran across a couple of websites in google that suggest that. the debunkers are at it again.. although, the story of her heart being left behind i think is a romantic idea.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:21am dc pat:

If you all are interested in these religion inspired revolutionary movements, read Pursuit of the Millennium, Norman Cohn. There were all kinda nutty visionaries in the Middle Ages
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:23am dc pat:

and when I say nutty, I mean totally freakin nuts! Not like Joan...
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:24am George Eliot:

pat, it looks as if the hirshorn no longer has the statue? total bummer; wonder where it went. it was in the sculpture garden, off to the back left part of the gallery
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:25am dc pat:

Hmm, not sure I remember it--I know I've seen a Joan statue somewhere, do you know the sculptor?
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:28am GP:

For all of you locals That Joan d'arc painting I was talking about earlier should be at the MET if they have not loaned it again.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:28am George Eliot:

no, pat.. i just called them and the lady had no idea what i was talking about... calling information..
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:30am dc pat:

DAMMIT George! Now I want to see it!!
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:31am Parq:

Re 10:59, Orson, I'm pretty sure someone mentioned The Third Man. That said, it's your own fault that all that's remembered by anyone still kicking nowadays is that stupid series of wine commercials.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:32am trouble:

are you talking about the Ingres painting?
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:33am Adrian in London:

(Comes back in from shopping) I saw Nick cave and Dirty Three play amlive soundtrack to Dreyer's Joan of Arc. Maria Falconetti, fantastic
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:35am GP:

The one by Jules Bastien-Lepage. The really big, life size one where she is standing outside of a cottage in the woods and kind of looking up and off to the left of the canvas..
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:35am George Eliot:

i love that painting....
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:36am GP:

Trouble..this one:
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:38am Orson:

Parq, that was Carol Reed who directed, even though I, of course, directed my own scenes. Hey the wine paid some bills; I made Touch of Evil dammit!
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:39am George Eliot:

hirshhorn seems to have put it away in storage, no one knows what i'm talking about... i'm even talking with "information"

  Thu. 5/7/09 11:43am chris:

Hi Trubble,

here is a link to a recording I made of a thunderstorm and a couple mockingbirds sounding off if you are interested: http://web.mac.com/crenna2/iWeb/Site/Soundscapes_files/FoundSymphony4.m4a
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:44am JCityJensen:

ahhh man trouble - this Phyllis Dillon is AWESOME!
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:45am Parq:

Library science is way-cool. If I had it to do over again, I might have chosen that path myself. Best good luck to your spouse, Miss T.

PS - that reggae version of "Confessions" was great.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:46am George Eliot:

parq, when i was living in dc i tried my damndest to get into the libary of congress for a job. i would have killed to work the stacks.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:47am texas scott:

very nice,chris.
two of my favourite sounds!
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:47am slight delay before it appears:

According to U.S. News & World Report, library and information science ranks as one of the "Best Careers of 2008."The median annual salary for 2007 is reported as $51,400 USD in the United States,with additional salary breakdowns available by metropolitan area, with San Francisco coming in the highest with an average salary of $64,400 and Philadelphia the lowest at $48,200. This is up from the median salaries in 2006 as $49,060 reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The increase can basically be attributed to keeping pace with inflation. A $49,060 salary in 2006 was adjusted to $50,457.33,and while data is not yet posted for 2008, adding the same rate of inflationary increase for 2008 (1.028%) one could project an inflationary salary adjustment as $51,894.46 for the 2008 fiscal year.[6] In December of 2007, the BLS projected growth for the field at "4 percent between 2006 and 2016", which is "slower than the average for all occupations", because, its authors assert, "As electronic resources become more common and patrons and support staff become more familiar with their use, fewer librarians are needed to maintain and assist users with these resources."
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:48am chris:

hey thanks Scott. It seems like most people hate MOckingbirds but I think they are neat!
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:50am AnAnonymousParty:

Minnie always makes my dog bark.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:50am texas scott:

mockingbirds are my faves,with cardinals a close 2nd.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:51am George Eliot:

pat....poof, it's gone... oh well....
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:51am JCityJensen:

awwww man nothing makes the morning like DEATH!
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:53am trouble:

thanks chris, sounds cool...elvie, my husband is going to Rutgers.
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:53am Will:

Hi Trouble! Will from Pawtucket here. Gee whiz this band Death sounds stunningly like the 1970s Canadian band of no repute, THUNDERMUG!!
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:54am dc pat:

sorry George, I'll keep an eye out for it.

Mockingbirds are ok with me but I wish they'd shut up when I'm trying to sleep...them and robins
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:54am chris:

Scott, do you live in TExas? You must have some amazing birds down there. I should mention that I added a 2nd Mockingbird recording a few minutes in to that piece I linked
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:57am trouble:

hey will from pawtucket.. RI representing this am
  Thu. 5/7/09 11:57am more please:

does anyone know here to get DEATH on cd
  Thu. 5/7/09 12:01pm dc pat:

not to rain on anyone's parade but ol' Joan displayed some pretty classic schizophrenic tendencies--voices in the head develops in the teenage years of a schizophrenic and are believed to be a misinterpretation of the patients own thoughts. Crazy or Saint...you decide...
  Thu. 5/7/09 2:59pm tina:

When will this awesome playlist be available to download?
  Sat. 5/9/09 9:12pm ben:

thanks for inspiring me to go and get the dead man soundtrack!

but I'm really confused -

why on some of the tracks, like the round stones beneath track, is there the sound of a car in the back along with doors being opened and closed? nothing like that in the movie, as cars were not around yet.
