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.

  Tue. 12/18/12 10:17am Cecile:

Oh, the ? was me.
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:19am Jennique:

Season's greetings everyone. My fingernails are painted alternate red and green for the holiday.
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:22am Cecile:

is there a was/not was Christmas song on it? I can't remember.
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:22am Brian in UK:

Seasons greetings trouble & aural acolytes.

Hey Cecile. Rust & Bone last night. Wow, challenging.

here's the link to the this is the modern world with trouble FB page. links you to other keren ann remixes for that song too www.facebook.com...
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:24am Brian in UK:

Jacques Audiard loves mixing it up.
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:27am Cecile:

Tell me more, Brian.

We watched Nightmare before Xmas again this weekend. Showed us how lame Frankenweenie was.

My head is bobbing to all the Christmas riddums. Keep on spinnin' 'em!
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:31am Brian in UK:

Here's a link 'cause I cannot do the storyline justice. Audiard did A Prophet & The Beat that my Heart Skipped.

Gotta walk the dog afore dark; catch you later.
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:33am Cecile:

thanks, brian!
Avatar Tue. 12/18/12 10:34am trouble:

jennique!! i keep threatening to paint my nails and the day slips away. i am jealous! brian i am wanting to see rust and bone, what is the challenge about it?
Avatar Tue. 12/18/12 10:35am trouble:

i would super adore it if those of you who can would sign this petition to create stricter gun control provisions in the U S of A
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:35am sugarwolf:

jennique, your nails sound fantastic. I'm going to do mine red with red glitter for next week. Maybe I'll do my toes green.
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:41am Jennique:

This is an eerie cover of Bjork, but then again it is an eerie song. Dig it.
Doing my nails is a luxury, as I never paint them and now I remember why. I turn into a girlie girl trying not to chip the paint and hate myself for it.
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:42am Cecile:

You know what would go with this? The Sweetest Girl by Scritti Politti - the song ends very similarly.
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:48am Titus in GA:

HAHA! This Bo Diddley number is kickin'!
  Tue. 12/18/12 10:54am stu:

Goin wid the flow in the ice and snow ( a lot of snow !) dreams of peace indeed ( would that it were so easy ) Cheers to Trouble's fans .....which translates to friends across the globe. Thanx Trub for a year filled with wisdom and music to soothe us!

Representing the Upper West Side! Christmas on Riverside Drive!
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:00am Cecile:

Ah! Kid Creole!

I am such a nerd that I squealed when on Debi Mazar's cooking show, she had Coati Mundi over for dinner!!!!
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:02am Mark:

woah* Just found my new station as soon as I heard the mpc playin, I had to find this stations site. Thnx for an awesome station!!!!!!
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:04am other eddie:

@trouble, thanks much for posting the petition's link. i hope all will sign and speak up against the deranged priorities of the gun lobby et al
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:11am Brian in UK:

trouble, the challenge is the female leads amputation & accurate prosthetic work. Having just seen the Paralympics this is nothing new in disability, seeing someone deal with it after trauma is another. The male leads immaturity is childish and frustrating but somehow endearing. So, it challenges on several different levels.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:12am xyz:

Yes - thanks for the heads up on that petition, Troubs. I get emails from Credo practically every other day, but nothing in my inbox about this one. Shame on them for not putting it on their home page, at least.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:16am Brian in UK:

I thought the government let slip the proviso to stop these type of guns about eight years ago.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:20am fred von helsing:

yeah !
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:20am Ike:

Wow, those Mike Batt song is fun. I don't normally enjoy Clay's picks but when he gets into the 80s he finds some neat stuff. I guess I'm a sucker for 80s fake robot music because objectively it's not any better than the 70s stuff, but I just have a weird, maybe-inexcusable negative reaction to the 70s stuff.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:23am Cecile:

hahahha, this is a version of I got loaded
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:23am Brian in UK:

No more walking into Woolworths, bona dish.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:23am Cecile:

I think Mike Batt was behind the Wombles.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:24am Brian in UK:

He was, Cecile.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:25am Cecile:

hahahha. nice.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:28am too much coffee:

...will never look at or hear the word 'pudding' the same way, from now on. thanks, Trouble.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:28am Unclear on the concept:

Y'know, you could take the lyrics of that "Pudding" song more than one way.
Avatar Tue. 12/18/12 11:31am trouble:

o you think so unclear concept? i think wynonie was pretty clear which meaning HE had...
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:33am KP:

This Big Star js great. Thanks.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:33am Parq:

Always great to hear this Big Star track.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:35am common:

i hear ya trouble!
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:36am Titus in GA:

Taking off for today, Trouble. Great set, as always. I want to wish ya and your family a merry n safe Xmas and thank you so much for spinning some great sets this year. let's make it an awesome 2013 for The Magic Factory. Cheers and take care everyone :)
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:36am Robert:

What NRA high horse? It's just people who want to be able to have guns and not bother anybody. Why should they suffer just because a tiny few people are mean with guns?
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:37am robyn:

hey trouble - completely agree re: gun laws. ours are beyond absurd. i don't know if you're familiar with digby's blog hullabaloo but you might be interested in this link...about how it goes beyond the NRA to the paranoid voting bloc the Democratic Party has, to this point, been unwilling to alienate. http://digbysblog.blogspot.com/2012/12/sacrificing-thousands-of-kids-on-altar.html
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:38am too much coffee:

yeah, not was the "Pudding" reference well within FCC boundaries, but it was used with a sense of style and class... which is sadly long dormant in our current mass culture
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:39am Cecile:

Robert, I think the NRA is even out of touch with their membership. My father in law and brother in law cancelled their memberships after the NRA lobbied for assault rifles and armor piercing bullets. They are hunters, and know that you don't need those to hunt. But you do need them to take down law enforcement.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:40am Tiago:

just to say
enjoyed double trouble
Obrigada e Feliz 2013
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:41am Tiago:

also enjoyed your shows this years but that goes without saying
Avatar Tue. 12/18/12 11:43am trouble:

bom dia tiago cheers and thanks!
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:47am Robert:

Well, Cecile, how many of those weapons actually ARE used to take down law enforcement? And in those cases, do you know whether "law enforcement" DESERVED to be taken down?
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:47am Parq:

Oo, nice Third Wave! Joe McG played 'em too. Is this a new release?
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:49am Brian in UK:

It is always good to say thanks. We are generally too keen to criticise but slow to praise.
Thanks trouble for your trouble & taste.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:50am Cecile:

ok, I'm out of here.
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:51am Cecile:

have a happy and uneventful holiday everyone!
  Tue. 12/18/12 11:51am xyz:

@ Brian: you're right, it did. We could use tighter restrictions than what that particular piece of legislation offered, but it sure would've been better than the whole lotta nuthin' we've got right now.
Avatar Tue. 12/18/12 11:51am trouble:

thank you all, for your ears, your comments and your good vibes!! i will be here jan 1, 9 am to welcome 2013!!
