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.

Trouble! tuned in from Lyon
  Tue. 3/27/12 9:14am Nathan:

So the dudes in the picture are all like, "Hey, you're blue, what you doin hanging with our lady?" and the blue guy is like, "Back off man take a hit off this shit and chill the fuck out." and the other dude on the left is like, "I'm goin take this negligee off and get involved." The monkeys obviously don't give a crap and the peacock got hot-boxed and getting blown away by it's own feathers.

I spent a couple of years teaching kids in northern England the Ramayana story in the form of a theatre piece and almost perfected the way I first told them it, but Nathan just well and truly kicked my arse with his awesome summation!
  Tue. 3/27/12 9:38am bw:

I am blasting your french back out the window at the french!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/27/12 9:40am trouble:

careful bw, my mispronunciations could cause a manifestation
  Tue. 3/27/12 9:41am Nathan:

@groucho I was just taking the piss. The actual story is obviously more interesting. Though I'm retroactively disappointed they didn't have the Ramayana in my elementary school library. Only the Greek, Roman, Nordic and Egyptian mythologies.

here's some ramayana magic for you:www.sitasingstheblues.com

Haven't heard this Rhasaan (sp?) in the best part of 35 years. A welcome surprise.
  Tue. 3/27/12 9:47am hamburger:

so this - all one guy?

Rashaan! Go trouble!
  Tue. 3/27/12 9:48am Deepak:

isn't Rahsaan just amazing? Thanks Trouble.
  Tue. 3/27/12 9:48am Nathan:

Thanks Trouble, I will watch that video later. It looks hilarious.
  Tue. 3/27/12 9:49am northguineahills:

Rashaan is amazng!

it's true. autoharps are pretty amazing too.
  Tue. 3/27/12 9:53am J-Mar:

AWESOME version of "Somebody to Love"! Nothing like hearing a worn-out song in a fresh context. For instance, I thought I didn't like the song "Light My Fire" until I heard Eleanor Friedberger sing it on the Portlandia tour. It sounded pretty good.
  Tue. 3/27/12 9:53am groucho:

@nathan I know you were taking the piss, but your version would have gotten through to the kids alot quicker! we didn't have it in our schools either, part of the reason we developed the project, plus we live in a BNP stronghold (like, lots of racist political types have power) so we wanted to flaunt Diwali under their noses & educate their kids without them knowing. we got to thousands of them over a couple of years too!!! muahahaha
  Tue. 3/27/12 9:54am groucho:

Somebody to love! wow what a version, tis on my list of things to hunt down now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/27/12 9:57am trouble:

and the rest of that barbara and ernie record is super fab too!
  Tue. 3/27/12 9:57am Jennique:

Trouble - thanks for that Nina Paley shout out and her animated version of the Ramayana. She deserves all the attention for that animated movie she made. Side note - one light fixture is actually installed on my wall and works!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/27/12 10:00am trouble:

jennique i love that story in the ramayana best, the light fixture tale of morality and lust. wink wink
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:01am Cecile:

Yummy Can Future Days colors
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:04am Nathan:

@groucho I understand your motivations... and they're good ones at that. Exposure is the best policy. You can't fear something you've encountered and vaguely understand, it's no longer 'alien'. But yeah, you've gotta speak their language, as well as make them laugh. Funnily enough I had a dream last night about encountering some near-albino BNP child who was mocking a Morrissey tour in the UK because 'e's a poof'. His dad was there as well... strange dream. Also involved flying a Cessna and being stopped & harassed by Moroccan police for landing in the wrong place. But ultimately all those dream events were potential nightmares that were diffused by diplomacy.

  Tue. 3/27/12 10:16am Magda:

I'd love to check that out.
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:17am groucho:

@Nathan wow. wait, what? haha I love how dreams seem apropos of nothing. do you have a dream diary? after a while everything becomes clear, or doesn't but it'll make more sense, if that makes sense
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:19am Magda:

I've been in a dreamy music kinda mood. Hence now why I'm obsessed with Alice Coltrane.
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:20am Cecile:

I was making out with Taika Waititi, director of Eagle vs Shark and BOY the other night in my dreams. I was quite angry at the alarm when it woke me. Even better, i was thin in my dream.
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:23am Cecile:

because I could find nice pants for under $20.
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:23am groucho:

@cecile have you tried Lucid Dreaming, where you can control your dreams? google it, it's 2 mins work a day for a month or two then boom, you're banging Taika in no time. I fly alot in my dreams. best.feeling.ever
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:24am Patrick:

Trouble, loving this funk/disco set!
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:24am Cecile:

no kidding? Taika and $19.99 pants every night? nice.
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:24am Deepak:

unmistakably ELO
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:27am Nathan:

@groucho I should keep one. Jung was into dreams and I just finished Man and His Symbols late last year. I generally keep track mentally and adjust accordingly without fussing too much over them. I've had a lot of flying dreams lately, which I haven't had for a very long while. But that's to probably do with the fact that I'm heading into a much desired career change.
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:27am Parq:

Does the last train to London stop at Clarkesville? One more thought on Rahsaan -- on the same album, there is a soul-stirring version of "Rugged Old Cross".
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:30am ffrr:

Hi T & all. Herzog's 'Cave of Forgotten Dreams' has quite an impressive soundtrack. DVD extra features composer Ernst Reijseger & his 5-string cello. It's a knockout.
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:32am PKNY:

Thanks for playing the Supreme Team, it's a good look!
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:35am trsh:

  Tue. 3/27/12 10:38am Jennique:

Love the Go-Gos cover. Most excellent!
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:40am paula pc:

whatever we did to deserve two elos in one set -- THANK YOU, Trouble!!
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:40am kwhitehead:

Love the ELO Trouble, they are totally under rated. You may want to pull out ELO II some time, just for the amazing song "Kuiama." A huge 11 minute jam. It sounds like the band doesn't want it to end.
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:40am v k:

always interesting how much different/better ~overplayed/mainstream songs sound when played by a discerning dj
  Tue. 3/27/12 10:43am βrian:

There is also a accompanying book to the house CD. It's fantastic.
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:01am Brian C.:

The ELO lyric? I thought it was "medieval woman". Seriously.
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:02am Dave B:

Happy Tuesday.
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:03am Cecile:

there's a lot of ELO I can't handle, but Evil Woman still sounds good and different years later.

Medieval Woman?

Is she related to Merkin Woman by the Guess Who?
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:09am Cecile:

Medieval Woman sounds like Celtic Woman - probably a big flashy touring madrigal show.
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:12am Stu:

Morning Trouble and all the modern listeners in the world. We have moved from the days of darkness to the days of lightness! nice music and funny comments today! cheers! S

I was going into the tunnel when "evil woman" came on, so I missed it. Can you play it again?
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:22am Dave B:

Trouble - is this Time Zone track on the Celluloid label? Worked there in the late 80s, right about when "World Destruction" came out.

This track set me back in the WABAC machine for a spell..
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:22am Jennique:

interesting factoid I gleaned from NY1 news this morning - Tim Tebow used the word excited more times in his press conference than the Pointer Sisters did in their song I'm So Excited.

yes dave b, 1983 celluloid. jenn: tibow is my mom's new nemesis ( she would adopt tom brady if he would allow it)

dave, do you remember an Ann Arbor band that was on Celluloid, the Urbations?
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:30am ken:

very pretty concon anne
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:34am Dave B:

Cecile - the name rings a bell. I'd have to dig thru the remnants that I still have from those days (late 83 - 85). My time there was primarily stockroom and postering. Good times none the less.
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:34am Brian C.:

The cool thing about thinking it was "medieval woman" was that I was in 10th grade when I was into that LP, learning about the dark ages from a VERY boring teacher. Song kept going through my head while taking endless notes…
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:36am Cecile:

they were a 50s-style r'n'b band that was inexplicably popular in NYC for a hot minute. I liked their spin off band, the Watusis, a lot better. They were both Ann Arbor bar bands in the best and worst senses - they did the best, most obscure covers, but their originals didn't live up to that.
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:37am Jennique:

Brian C: I had a similar problem with a chemistry teacher when the song "Promises, Promises" came out by Naked Eyes. I kept humming "Molecules, Molecules" in my head...
  Tue. 3/27/12 11:41am Dave B:

now you've piqued my interest Cecile...
