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.

Nice start to the show, Trouble. First, Pippi Longstocking sailing the seven seas, then Callas bringing the diva power.
  Tue. 2/7/12 9:16am suzy:

dale: langstrump = long stockings

Hello Trouble and listeners. Your London correspondent spent lat evening in a freezing darkened church listening to Tim Hecker play the organ for a Ravedeath album show. Strange/boring/exhilarating/painful/soothing in equal measures.

  Tue. 2/7/12 10:01am jamesie:

Seville Oranges and some lemons
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:01am SW:

Not coming in on the radio.

Wow, prosthetic nostalgia for the '70s in Europe? Glad someone else put that into words for me. Love it.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:18am Cecile:

I still haven't tucked into my Rose's Lime juice marmalade I bought myself as a Christmas treat.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:19am Brian en Angleterre:

jamsie Just the time of year for Seville oranges. Thick peel I trust. Have you considered grapefruit marmalade? Works well.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:21am Cecile:

mmmm, Brian sounds lovely.
I saw Howl's Moving Castle this weekend. Beautiful, funny and kind of deranged. The plot seemed preposterous until I looked up the plot of the original book on the 'net.

I am unreasonably excited about the Borrowers movie Miyazaki is directing...
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:25am Caryn:

@Cecile: the Borrowers movie was really good, if not completely faithful to the books. But I don't require movie adaptations to be totally faithful, as long as they are good. And it was, so go forth and watch!
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:25am erella!:

Thank you trouble. Love the show today.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:27am Mike East:

I got really into Miyazaki a few years ago. My daughter loves Howl's Moving Castle - and Ponyo. Princess Mononoke was a little scary for her at this point - but that's my favorite.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:29am Cecile:

I like that one a lot, Mike East, and have a soft spot for Kiki's Delivery Service.

Haven't seen Ponyo yet.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:31am ken:

great guest. great discussion. too too much stuff...screening room...have to check that out. i assume it's youtubeable...

Jan Svankmajer discussed on WFMU! I may die happy now.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:38am Cecile:

I borrowed a copy of a DVD of Svankmajer films from a friend. It got stolen when my house got broken into. I found him another copy, but now I'm afraid to borrow it from him again....!
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:38am Parq:

Jan Hammer's doing movie music now? Cool. He was such an essential part of the Mahavishnu Orchestra -- Clay Pigeon will back me up on that one.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:39am BSI:

the Svankmajer short film PUNCH & JUDY made me what I am today. Perhaps that's not such a good thing?
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:40am zoran:

Susan Pitt's "Asparagus" is seriously one of the strangest things I've ever seen... sort of like an opiated Bruce Bickford...
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:40am erella!:

Trouble and Guest Ben, I know it is a totally different thing, but maybe not. The new OKGO video is incredible. http://youtu.be/MejbOFk7H6c
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:41am Cecile:

I loved that Svanmayer one with the rocks. THat's why I borrowed it. But now I think I will have to watch it online or something.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:42am BSI:

For me it was definitely the audio as well as the visuals. With Svankmajer. Punch & Judy had a perfect mix of music & sound design.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:44am glenn:

  Tue. 2/7/12 10:45am Adrian in London:

Loving these sets Ben and Trouble. That Nico track was great.
@Cecile and Mike: Ponyo is great. I watched the latest one, Arrietty, he other day. Enjoyable but not as good as Ponyo.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:46am erella!:

Svanmayer's Alice is brilliant. I love Punch and Judy too. 1966!
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:48am Cecile:

that OKGO vid was great. And the song was actually quite strong, with an interesting arrangement w/o the vids.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:48am Cecile:

aw, ivan kral. Miss that guy.
He should be alive and playing with Patti.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:49am Jeremy:

Fantastic stuff, all of this!
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:49am madhatter:

Svankmajer films are avail for streaming on Netflix, along with Quay Brothers.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:50am Mike East:

@Adrian - I'll have to check that one out. Have you seen Castle of Cagliostro? Its not really for kids, per se, but my daughter loves that one too.
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:52am Jeremy:

I first discovered Svankmajer through the Quay Bros., who were his pupils. He's still making films, btw, the most recent one was playing when I was in Prague last year, but I couldn't go! Ah well, it wasn't subtitled anyway...
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:53am highpresssure:

wait wait wait what was that last song! wow
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:56am ken:

there should be a blog of a blog of a blog of a blog of a blog...
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:57am Caryn:

Since no-one has mentioned them yet, gotta put my votes behind "Nausicaä and the Valley of the Wind", "Spirited Away" and "Totoro". Oh, and "Porco Rosso". Man, Miyazaki doesn't make bad films. Neither does Svankmajer. Though seeing his Alice when I was 12 was a bit disturbing... Anyone else seen Svankmajer's version of "The Fall of the House of Usher"?
  Tue. 2/7/12 10:59am indonesian:

Um, "in our culture" we do use CDs and MP3s. Cassettes haven't been seen in Indonesia since the 80s. Actually, you'll find that Indonesians are faster adaptors of new technology than Westeners. Every second person there practically upgrades their cellphone on a monthly basis. So there. We do know how to use computers. Thanks.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:00am Mike East:

@Caryn - I agree those are all great. There was a Totoro doll in the last Toy Story movie. I thought that was a pretty cool shout out.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:00am northguineahills:

I'm reading Electric Eden right now.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:01am Cecile:

Even in Pre-Revolution France, the royalty would play at a rural lifestyle.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:02am Cecile:

thanks for the reality check, indonesian.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:03am Mike East:

I love the foley effects in all the Svankmajer films I've seen. The sound of the devil's mouth clacking in Faust still gives me the creeps.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:03am Caryn:

The 2011 release of "Requiem for a Village" is awesome. It comes with 4 short films by the same director and the essays are fascinating. Paintings are quite lovely too.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:04am Adrian in London:

@Mike: No, I haven't seen that one. They're always on Film Four, a digital channel over here, but with the English dubbing. I prefer the Japanese soundtrack so tend to get them on DVD. Too many things to watch/see/read etc!
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:08am Mike East:

@Adrian - so true. The Castle of Cagliostro music soundtrack is pretty great. It has a kind of 70's funk/caper movie feel to it.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:09am Caryn:

@Mike: oh man, "Faust". You're right about the devil. When I was younger, Svankmajer's "Jabberwocky" freaked me out. I think it was the maggots that did it.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:10am zoran:

Great show Trouble & Ben!! ---Ben, any info on where to find screening room dvd/streams? I was lucky enough to see the one w/ Standish Lawder on amazon before the license was pulled... Only thing I can find has them for $175 per episode on dvd.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:13am Mike East:

@Caryn - I forgot about Jabberwocky! - I saw that when I was REAL young (my older sister's were watching it) and I remember being terrified - but at the same time, compelled to watch it.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:16am zoran:

Also Svankmajer fans in NY area: (sorry if already mentioned I'm listening while working... hard to hear over chop saw)
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:19am Ike:

Oh yeah @Caryn, "Nausicaä and the Valley of the Wind" and "Spirited Away" are *amazing* films. But "Howl's Moving Castle" is not as good as the book.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:21am stu:

Hei Trouble
Sending cool vibes from Turku( nice and cool here !) . Gonna have to listen to the Archive tomarra to catch all this music... Cheers
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:23am Jennique:

Thanks for that link Zoran. I will try and make it out to the Museum of Moving Image next week to see Svankmajer on the big screen.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:24am Brian en Angleterre:

Been out and just got in. Was Requiem for a Village about somewhere in Suffolk, came out in 70s. Think I used to work with the cinematographers wife. I remember her talking about it at the time.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:24am Caryn:

@Ike: yep, not as good as the book (but then again, I LOVE the book), but still a very enjoyable film.
@zoran: I find it rather appropriate that "Asparagus" used to be shown as a double bill with Lynch's "Eraserhead". That would be a movie-going experience that would make you go hmm...
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:26am Caryn:

@Brian: yep, a village in Suffolk. Came out in 1975.

I am incredibly pleased to visit my favorite radio stations website and find a conversation about one of my favorite artists. Jan Svankmajer and WFMU - together at last!

Thanks Caryn, it comes back to me now. I was working in a childrens bookshop at the time. Think her name was Seema?
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:29am glenn:

morphing salamanders. sounds like ken's show.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:30am Caryn:

@Brian: well, the cinematographer was Bruce Parsons, who did a few documentaries and short films in the 60s and 70s.
  Tue. 2/7/12 11:32am still b/p:

If I was in NY area, I'd recommend a listener meet-up for short film viewing. And marmalade tasting. And microbrew tasting.

I think the main lesson is: never go to an isolated research station, period. In the history of films and tv, it has never worked out well. From "McGuyver" to "The X Files" to "Lost", isolated research station spells doom.
