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.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/13 10:26am Listener Bryan (the Professor):

I hope it means DJ Icepack is giving Melville's novel a spin. Or maybe one of the graphic novel adaptations of it? Either way, first time readers of the novel might dig my pal Cyrus Patell's annotations to every day of last year's Moby-Dick Big Read ahistoryofnewyork.com... or my own top 5 tips for first-time readers: www.greatwhatsit.com...

I see what you did with the "whale tail" thing there, missy.

well, my normal 30 minute commute became a 75 minute commute due the trains being held up due to a "police investigation". Wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't wearing long sleeves and a tie waiting on the platform for 40 minutes.

Thanks for the explanation, DJ Icepack.
  Tue. 7/16/13 11:17am Robert:

Last year I was introduced to something a little more complicated than fencing: sword-and-buckler fighting. Having a weapon and a shield makes more types of parries possible and varies the type of attacks the competitors use. They hold their bodies differently than one would for fencing or for boxing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/13 11:22am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah I knew of course Carpenters had merit
- didn't know they had early BaroquePop & suchlike...

Just tuning in. I love that hood, hood image.

Yma was probably Incan the way Don Ho was Hawaiian - the culture is definitely represented, but there is also a lot of show-biz fun there.

I never knew this song had a title. I used to call it "wubba dubba dah" when I was a kid.

"when you say wubba dubba dah, wubba dubba dah, then I say wubba dubba dah" and so on and so on.

Hi, I love the Moby Dick theme, great comments, thanks for those Moby Dick links. I read in a review of it once that it was most suited to someone who is dying or going through a grave crisis. I picked it up while I thought I might have a horrible disease (bit of a hypochondriac here) and then when I found I was okay I put it down. But it is there for me as it is for everyone, a meaty literary journey.
