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 'FMUlings...
  Tue. 4/10/12 9:35am Adrian in London:

Not to rub your nose in it but I was at the Barbican last night to see Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, Brice Desner, a string quartet and SEVEN trombonists perform a suite of songs about the planets. It was amazing.
  Tue. 4/10/12 9:36am BodegaMan:

@Adrian, there's worse things you could rub my nose in.
  Tue. 4/10/12 9:37am Van in DC:

Barista in downtown jc here. lovin the tunes
  Tue. 4/10/12 9:55am Cecile:

The Blue Nile record was actually released on an audiophile label before it was released by a major - the recording quality was that good.
  Tue. 4/10/12 9:57am Adrian in London:

@Cecile: and put me on a lifelong quest to own a Linn Sondek turntable. Unachieved so far :(

Why have I been sleeping on THEESatisfaction for so long. Shout-outs from Seattle, in the office early. Going to pick up the new album this afternoon for sure. LP?

love the picture today! is that a teepee dress?
  Tue. 4/10/12 10:23am Patrick:

Hey trouble just tuning in for the day, I must have missed the tribute to Thomas kinkade, assuming it was during the first hour.
  Tue. 4/10/12 10:23am Jennique:

The drink of choice of young Jennique was chocolate milk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/12 10:29am trouble:

hey patrick. no i haven't played ding dong the witch is dead yet. maybe after the sinking of the titanic. although in all fairness he died young, perhaps too much sniffin glue
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/12 10:30am trouble:

today's artist is yayoi kusama. she is now 86 and has a retospective on in london. she has quite a colorful past of fab art and is still rockin it
  Tue. 4/10/12 10:36am Patrick:

Maybe he was huffin turpentine. Word on the street was he had a wee bit of a drinking problem. However you're right no one should die so young, even if that person is a doofus. Guess we will never see that Alex grey /Thomas kinkade colab we where all hoping for
  Tue. 4/10/12 10:38am Michael/London:

I saw the Kusama exhibit at the tate recently, it's really cool...but i think it's now being overshadowed by the Damien Hirst tate show.
  Tue. 4/10/12 10:41am Jennique:

Looked up Yayoi Kusama and loved this quote: "Polka-dots become movement... Polka dots are a way to infinity."
Coincidentally (or not?) I am wearing a polka dotted sweater today.
  Tue. 4/10/12 10:44am seang:

jeez they leeched all the fun out of this tune
  Tue. 4/10/12 10:46am Krypt:

Howdy Trouble and gentlelisteners, liking the playlist alot 'spesh the new Georgia Anne Muldrow stuff, just sublime.
  Tue. 4/10/12 10:46am Braveness23:

Yeah, I wasn't gonna say anything but I agree

Tuesday mornings are the best!
  Tue. 4/10/12 10:48am Brian in UK:

Hello trouble & other trouble finders. Flitting twixt showers & sunshine here. Well it is April.

One minutes silence held today in Southampton where the sad ship departed from.
  Tue. 4/10/12 10:49am erella in toronto:

Morning Trouble and everyone. Lovely day. I have been quietly enjoying this music.
Hey Trouble, I was wondering if you could list the art in the main part of the playlist near the image so that the creator of the art's name could be found easily.
  Tue. 4/10/12 10:49am stu:

thanks george! good morning erella, stu, dale. good idea erella! i will do some checking out on how i can label it other than burying it in the comments. makes sense, since sometimes people ask 3 or 4 times in the course of the show for that same info.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:03am Cecile:

if this was the soundtrack music for Titanic, it would have been a very different movie.

jennique must you remind us of your supernatural polka dot powers? i just bought her autobiography yesterday. she is a huge hero of mine

cecile, i am happy to announce that i have never seen the movie
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:05am strs:

There's a poem by E.J. Pratt called, The Titanic. It was tossed into the mix of dystopian literature one English class.

Blind cockiness of technology as I recall.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:07am northguineahills:

got here in the nick of time. Bryars goes well w/ the ambient audio of the Great Blue Heron cam Trouble put up last week.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:10am Mike East:

Me either, trouble! It was almost impossible to avoid when it came out, too, I remember. I actually had to put effort into not seeing it.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:11am βrian:

That makes three of us. Haven't seen the film ... but might someday.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:12am northguineahills:

My younger bros. were in HS when the movie came out, and were infatuated w/ it, I managed to avoid it until they were in college and they insisted on watching it w/ me.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:13am Cecile:

I never have either.
I lost interest in Cameron around Terminator II.
I think that was around the time he split up with Gale Ann Hurd, the genius (and I mean this) behind Tremors.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:14am Marmalade kitty:

Billy Zane was excellent in the film, really horrible!
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:14am Brian in UK:

"History is more or less bunk. It's tradition. We don't want tradition. We want to live in the present, and the only history that is worth a tinker's damn is the history that we make today".

Well Mr Ford.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:17am still b/p:

As the long lame folderol played out in the film's early portions, my girlfriend at the time leaned over to me in the theater a few times to chant-whisper: "Sink...the...ship! Sink...the...ship!"
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:20am Marmalade kitty:

amazing gace old lang syne
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:23am dc pat:

I have 2 words for you: Kate Winslet. She's been a fave ever since Heavenly Creatures, which was amazing. Titanic was boring but...
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:25am Vivian:

Hated the ending. So corny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/12 11:25am trouble:

brian in uk, i am reading "being wrong" by kathy schulz and she has a lot of great things to say about history. it is very difficult for people to accept being wrong, so history is a live wire in that it is constantly illuminating huge moments of wrongness. great read
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:26am staceyjoy:

fantastic show today, as usual. LOVING it.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:28am erella in toronto:

My friend wrote an excellent book for the 33 1/3 series about Celine Dion and the nature of taste. I think many of his friend were kidding him about this project. Atlantic Monthly commissioned him to write this. http://bit.ly/HENCsY It is really interesting.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:30am erella in toronto:

Thanks for playing this record, Trouble. I have it on vinyl, but haven't listened to it for many, many years.
....and I meant friends not friend in my previous comment.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:30am Andrew Waterloo:

That let's Talk about Love 33/3 is essential reading for any music fan.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:33am erella in toronto:

Hey Andrew, it is a really great book. I am glad you like it.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:35am Brian in UK:

trouble I still shudder about some things I have said or done many years ago & when memory for some reason triggers them I can feel myself blushing or worse carrying it around.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:36am dc pat:

Brian: same here. can't seem to shake some moments in my life...wonder if there is some kind of evolutionary advantage for those kind of memories
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:38am dc pat:

Not a huge Bryars fan but this is ok. I was seriously bummed when Gorecki died. That guy was massive.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:38am northguineahills:

ahhh, I took a crack at the Celine Dion 33 1/3 at a friend's pad on a Friday night a month ago. Honestly, I don't remember much as I was laughing so hard that there was a Celine Dion 33 1/3 (and the boozahol on a late Friday night)
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:38am Jennique:

I am also in the vortex of remembering really embarrassing things. Why oh why? I suppose to not repeat them but STILL, I wish they would stop plaguing me.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:40am northguineahills:

yeah, whenever I've done something "wrong", no matter how minor, it still burns under the surface. (@dc pat & Brian)
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:40am Fern:

Trouble, thanks for playing this. Was not familiar with it and I'm entranced.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:41am Brian in UK:

Learning from them is the best way forward. Still wont stop it necessarily happening again.

We always seem to almost 'cherish' the bad and gloss over the good as if it should automatically happen.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:42am Cecile:

Embarassing moments in the past can make for funny cartoons. And it's a good way of exorcising them.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:43am dc pat:

yeah but most of my embarrassing memories are so trivial there really isn't much there to learn. I think these memories just keep my quiet a lot of the times so I don't say/do something stupid. Not so much anymore but I can't see how that's advantageous...
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:45am northguineahills:

@dc pat: yeah, most of my more retarded actions or comments aren't even remembered by the parties I thought affected when I ask later. Then again, I've been told I'm not very good at being an asshole.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/10/12 11:46am trouble:

i'm reading this book for the ideas that float around creativity and wrong. so many great things happen out of being wrong in the studio or the scientific lab
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:46am avant reguard:

this song is amazing but i find devastatingly sad. im a bit overwhelmed and overcome.
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:47am ken:

trouble this Titanic track has put me at much needed peace
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:49am ken:

i used to live across from 'straus park' in manhattan. the most beautiful fountain dedicated to the couple that stayed together. could be one of the most beautiful, understated memorials anywhere.

Wasn't Nutrasweet invented by mistake?
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:56am strs:

Beginning and then feeling the lengthy musical stretch on this last verse
"And out there in the starlight, with no trace
Upon it of its deed but the last wave
From the Titanic fretting at its base,
Silent, composed, ringed by its icy broods,
The grey shape with the palaeolithic face
Was still the master of the longitudes."
  Tue. 4/10/12 11:57am KP:

Thanks. Perfect for this drive. Now eyes back on road.
