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.

there are SO many birds in the front yard these days. nothing exotic, although the cardinals have returned. we have a huge woodpecker couple(pileated?), nuthatches, goldfinch, mockingbird, sparrows.... temps are mild enough to trick them into spring-time wooing and cooing.

can any of you radio-heads recommend a player for CDs that is NOT itunes? and MAC does not make it easy to make an alternative player the default for listening.. i have all these great CDs from the marathon

I took a closer look, and actually there has been WinAmp for the mac but back in 2011-2013. i dunnno if it has been updated.

I've had pretty good luck with the VLC player on Windows. They have a Mac version, too. www.videolan.org...

Yes, VLC is also a good substitute for QuickTime.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/22/15 9:54am annie:

well, winamp DID have an upgrade for mac; the last time i loaded it, i had no memory to run it. i've added memory since then.. i have to see how to make it the default player, though.. i've been a winamp fan for a long time and miss it. these are great ideas guys, thanks.. i might spend the next week playing with players.
