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.

Listener comments!

  Thu. 7/23/09 9:04am annie:

morning trouble!!!!! having a long day here so far. big bummer.
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:05am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Happy Thursday, Trouble!
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:07am trouble:

good morning all! annie, hope your day is better from here on out...
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:08am Parq:

Love your quiet approach to mornings, Miss T. Annie, FB me and tell me what's up.
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:10am annie:

well, i hope so. seems like the pile is getting higher. been sick with the runs, the water pump shut down so no water. and trivial: i am not able to access my FB account. i guess i'm just having a weird 24 hours. saw "public enemies"; not such a bad flick. parq you will have to email me. i am not able to send any messages at all, not even clicking "like"!!!!
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:12am Parq:

Gah. Okay, will do.
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:14am annie:

trouble, if this is an inappropriate chat, please feel free to delete..
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:16am Rob W:

Oh, to be a fly on the wall in Dawn Zimmer's house right now...
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:24am Parq:

Wow, Liz's disc is getting even more play than Tom's "Ram" disc. I am smug to note, both are on my "getting" list.
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:24am PMD:

Sounds like Amanda!
morning all..
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:25am PMD:

Annie, so sorry. How can you call FB trivial though! ;-)
Eat bananas, rice, peanut butter. But I'm sure you know that.
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:26am texas scott:

be of good cheer,annie.
things will only get better from this moment forward.
happy friday eve!
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:29am v k:

morning T r o u b l e...always excited to be tuned-in...nothing drowns out the sound of copying machines, telepones and office chatter quite as nicely as your fine program
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:29am annie:

PMD: notsowisewoman at the yahoo thing. i know the thing about the foods, yeah, it's almost past. yes scott. i dig ya!! thanks.. i feel like sleeping still. isa was so good last night, she must have sensed i was ill, she stayed quiet and subdued and even went to bed at 7:30 with me..i let her sleep on the bed. she was nice dog comfort...
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:35am dale:

morning trouble...is your background music from Forbidden Planet? great sound design in that film.....
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:35am dale:

....or Robinson Crusoe on Mars?
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:38am nasok:

speaking of moon music, did you see this thing in the NYT about pink floyd's playing live to the original moon landing?
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:39am ec:

"Major corruption and international money laundering"

  Thu. 7/23/09 9:39am v k:

pink floyd...i felt like i was on the moon when i saw pink floyd live at Vanderbilt Stadium in 1994...first concert ever...16 years old
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:40am trouble:

yes dale! good call. that soundtrack is the best, although i have never seen the movie, i need to search that out
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:40am Katie:

as a hobokenite from Detroit - might rival RI for corruption - seeing my mayor as the lead photo being lead from his home in handcuffs is bringing back childhood memories.
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:45am dale:

did the cowsills or free design write the theme for Barbarella?
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:46am Bill W:

I last saw "Forbidden Planet" at the ancient Loews Jersey City! In the 3-speaker PERSPECTO system.

I am off to the dentist, where they likely won't have moon music.
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:46am ExRIer:

Trouble, I think Buddy Cianci (former mayor of Providence and convicted felon) might have the same AM radio slot as you.
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:50am trouble:

yes! me and buddy: rivals! that is fab!
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:53am Duke:

Buddy Cianci WPRO AM
Monday - Friday: 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
I prefer Trouble's show, better music and commentary.
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:54am Emily:

how did you know i was in the mood for reggae when I didn't even know! (guess that's why i love your show!)
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:55am ExRier:

Me too but has trouble ever accosted her spouse's lover with a burning log while a state trooper was posted outside? Just asking.
  Thu. 7/23/09 9:56am em:

buddy has his own marinara sauce though. but trouble does have a premium disc that i can't wait to hear.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:00am who?:

who will risk his neck for his brotha-man?
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:02am fishmonkeystew:

Ahhh, yes, the fabled premiums. I'm beginning to wonder if my mail man swiped it.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:03am Parq:

Miss T, I'm assuming that "Shaft" was a nod to Skip Pitts's titanic performance at the Pondo Stomp a week ago, broadcast live by His Spazzitude. If not intentionally so, it still works.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:03am Duke:

I don't think Trouble did time in prison before getting her own shown either.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:06am postmanpaul:

hi trouble, nice to hear shaft, fond memories of being a part-time roadie for the reformed 'fantastics' touring the northern working mens' clubs here once upon a time when i was at art college. they came on stage to this number and sans strobes but with me flicking the stage lights on and off 'till me wrist seized up! and thats a true story.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:11am trouble:

post man paul, good to know about your varied past!. sounds like a movie to me...
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:13am bruce:

Ya gotta play "this land is your land" after GBA!
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:14am Yankee Fan:

I need to take a leak.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:14am Cecile:

Annie, make some homemade rehydration drink (online) or drink some unflavored pedialyte. And seriously, after 3 days go to the doc.

Just had an awesome biscotti from Lon Gisland my boss brought me. Oh, man. We need a real Italian bakery out here.

Hi Trouble! Hi, everyone!
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:15am Cecile:

Mayor Healy, TELL IT!
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:16am patrick:

wish you where here!
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:18am trouble:

yes patrick, i agree.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:18am annie:

morning cecile. thanks for the advice, it's almost over. still a bit queasy, but not running anymore, as it were.. i had thirst last night, and i don't usually drink alot of water. so, i did drink some seltzer. just chillin here so far, waiting for a plumber to call back..
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:21am patrick:

today is overcast and in the 60! plus im sure there is a lobster key chain with your name on it.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:23am Cecile:

Good annie, glad it's passing. That stuff is nasty, it's sent me to the ER a couple of times.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:25am annie:

i am generally one to let things run a course. and this seems to be a fine example.... just not at all hungry..
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:31am Devin:

Hello, every body.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:34am Carmichael:

Good morning Trouble and everyone.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:35am Ne-guh-tor:

I don't need no speed, but weed.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:36am texas scott:

what's up,Devin? Carmichael?
welcome to the modern world.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:36am trouble:

and i am a fan of the lobster as man's best friend. p erhaps we should explain this thread. listener patrick and I were trying to cook up a live remote from portland ME this morning, but i just couldn't get it all together last minute...
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:36am trouble:

and a second round of good mornings to everyone!
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:37am annie:

trouble, that sounds great!!!! too bad it fell out, though. morning carm..
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:38am Devin:

Hey Scott,.. so this is what the modern world is like...
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:38am Cecile:

this is pretty great, I'm not used to hearing the Staples Singers so secular....and sensual
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:42am GP:

Morning Trouble and all....Annie...get better soon. Do what Cecile says.
Postman Paul, the light switch thing has me cracking up...been there.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:42am Parq:

Yes, the NYS Legis is off the front page! Annie, I woud also stress that you shouldn't go too long without consulting the medical-industrialist complex.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:45am Parq:

WSJ (official motto: "We hate government corruption and want it left to the private sector where it belongs") reports that arrests are expected to continue through this afternoon. Newark Airport must be a madhouse right now.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:45am annie:

morning gp- i'm just gonna sit here on the group w bench. drink fluids and relax. the only fluid, unfortunately is seltzer, which i really hate, but it's fluid. and i've had my coffee.. i promise you parq, if i feel this way this afternoon, then i will make that call. my friend joan in oneonta is amazing, and she treats people for free, if need be. so tell me a good website to read the details of this sting.. anyone?
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:47am texas scott:

yes Devin,it's not just a dream.it's true

trouble has magical powers.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:50am annie:

speaking of robbery and corruption i saw public enemies yesterday. depp is not too shabby..
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:50am Devin:

Scott,.. the kind of powers that make me dance in the middle of my office, seated in a chair.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:51am Carmichael:

That synth line reminds me of 25 or 6 to 4.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:54am texas scott:

yep,that's part of her spell,
to dance quietly in your chair.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:58am Cecile:

I hate Microsoft Word worse than procurement today.
Procurement hooked a sista up, so they are cool.
  Thu. 7/23/09 10:59am Cecile:

Trouble - Flight of the Conchords 2nd season CD out October 20.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:01am GP:

Annie..here is the story..don't know much else about it:
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:01am Cecile:

Hey, annie, did Isa start howling at those last notes? ;)
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:02am Carmichael:

Cecile, let me know what you need, procurement-wise. I know a guy who knows a guy. I'm just sayin' ...
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:02am trouble:

merci bien, cecile. I moved it up to the top of my netflix queue in anticipation of this holy moment
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:03am Cecile:

That's the DVD. That's out AUGUST 4!!!!!!!!

The actual CD is going to be released a little later. So no more crappy YouTube versions of season 2 songs for me... and you and you and you
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:03am annie:

no, cecile, she cocked her head and did that cute dog thing: huh??.. thanks for the link gp!!
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:04am 55mm:

Yes Depp is his usual great self but my problem with PE, aside from the unsteady cam, was the soundtrack. Sure there's Billie and that's fine but what's with that modernized electric guitar folkie thing going on in a film showing life in the '30's(not to mention Krall's updated 'Blackbird')? Threw me off somewhat.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:05am Cecile:

55mm I hate non period music in a period film unless it's really unique. Doesn't sound like it is.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:07am FotC:

Trent, you've got in going on.
Not in a gay way, just in a hey I want to say that you're looking okay way.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:10am Parq:

My own opin is that "Public Es" was very good for what it was -- a whoelly conventional, big-budget, big-studio Hollywood ganster movie, breaking zero new ground and offering zero variants or upgrades on the genre's standards. I like strange movies, thank you.

Annie, Google-news "New Jersey" and all of the first hits will be about the arrests.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:11am annie:

55mm, i agree with you!! i thought the song just didn't fit at that speed. just an excuse to get them slowdancing.. and tag it at the end.. pitiful.. and if i recall, i really don't know this for a fact, but wasn't billie holiday kind-of kept out of the mainstream? like radio?
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:13am Carmichael:

Speaking of Johnny Depp and wierd film music, I'll always remember Neil Young's super-echo electric guitar soundtrack to Dead Man. Put the icing on the whole bizarro cake.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:15am annie:

great flick, really great flick...i think that was setting a mood as opposed to trying to find "period" tunes for an "historical" film
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:22am stingy d:

whats up pies?
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:24am Parq:

I suspect that the Krall track and similar tracks were put in simply because they're popular. For every person who says "Diane Krall? Isn't that kind of an anachronism?", there are four or five (or more) who say "Ooh, Diane Krall, I LUVVVV Diane Krall, she's SO-O-O beautiful!" and like that. These guys are running a business, after all.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:25am stingy d:

gotta diane before ya krall. damn fine pie!
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:28am lilsis:

Good Morning Trouble, late in joining this morning . Cant get motivated post JB Live
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:29am annie:

it's really all about making a movie and paying the actors... etc, etc.... exposure. etc.. publicity, etc.. i'm gonna go nap now.. see y'all later.. for fabio maybe or mid-scott
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:30am HotRod:

Good morning, Ms. Trouble. :)
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:32am Carmichael:

I have about a 10 second tolerance for Diana Krall. Muzak.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:33am trouble:

hey lil sis! Hey hot rod!
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:34am chris:

Really nice music this morning. Thanks...
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:35am trouble:

your welcome chris, thanks for the good words.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:39am HotRod:

I find the visual hilarious as well. This is REALLY hilarious: http://videos.nj.com/star-ledger/2009/07/hoboken_mayor_peter_cammarano.html

Oh, and I'm enjoying the mic break background noise.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:42am Carmichael:

I'm hoping that the big NJ bust can happen here as well. We need a big cleanout of our pols.

And I'm thoroughly enjoying little claw's full frontal assault.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:48am stingy d:

oh SLICE! this is my dude! svenoniuos! gospel yeh yeh!! it lives!
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:51am Marshall Stacks:

Whatever else you say about her, Diana Krall has good taste in husbands.

The FBI somehow never touched Willie Brown when he was CA Assembly Speaker. I'm not sure if our current legislative crop is corrupt or merely inept.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:53am Carmichael:

Now we're talking. This is the most amazing find for me in a decade. Thanks to FMU for turning me on to Odessa!
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:54am stingy d:

i was gonna say basically the same thing carmichael. i have seen odessa a million times and debated buying it 3/4's of those times. but i never did it. now i never see it anymore! in due time tho.
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:54am dale:

I never knew this was the bee gees. close your eyes and you'd think it was a poco-ish southern cal band or something like that (better, obviously).
  Thu. 7/23/09 11:55am Carmichael:

I finally found it in a used CD place. I petted the velvety cover for a long time, I was so happy.
  Thu. 7/23/09 12:01pm Cecile:

lovely show, Trouble!
  Sat. 7/25/09 4:17am Erik:

Digging the archive! Thanks for another great show!
