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.

I have a completely real and unironic celebrity crush on Yoko Ono.
Avatar 9:07am northguineahills:

I saw her at her 80th bday celebrations at BAM, and she was amazing (and the guests she had!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07am The Oscar:

I always felt like the depths of Yoko's awesomeness were a profound insider secret that was revealed to me my first week of working in a used record store.
Avatar 9:08am Fredericks:

This Sun Ra sounds wonderful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09am NotARealDoctor:

@TheOscar, same here, except not from working in a record store so much as from a close friend in undergrad working at the college radio station

Great follow-up, too! Looks like I'll be here a while.

Good morning! I'm sorry I missed Yoko but I'm happy there's a place where people can talk about how much they love Yoko.

Ahh, Malcolm. I feel like The Great Rock & Roll Swindle, The Filth and the Fury, and Sid and Nancy can be watched back to back as a six-hour remake of Rashomon.
  9:46am Ewe Alone:

New to commenting here.. felt compelled to thank you for the Francoise Hardy song! And the rest too, but that particularly made my day :)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am The Oscar:

@Trouble Awesome-- between that and the Laurie Anderson exhibit, I need to get out there. I don't think I've been since high school, which is inexcusable.
  Swag For Life Member 10:15am BarbR:

@The Oscar - thanks for the tip! Already planning to visit Mass MoCA the day after Thanksgiving (avoid malls, enjoy art ;-) Might have to return in Dec.

Sonia's painting reminds me of the joy I would feel, as a little boy, when I looked at brightly colored fishing lures.

(Hmm, is that ichthy of me?)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38am Passaic River Blues:

Unfortunately for me, "I Am Black Beauty" is a vinyl-only release. I emailed Finders Keepers begging them to put it out in another format (digital, CD, musicbox, player piano scroll, etc.) but was kindly rebuffed.

First lures, now Lurie.

No, I haven't. Looks interesting.

@trouble: seems you are the person that nicked all my cds at my last party…

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46am Itzall Ablurr:

Is this (Lounge Lizards) the same band that covered "Money"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47am TomDash:

Wow - haven't heard this Lounge Lizards track in years! flashback moment, used to spin it on college/community radio when it was a new release! Great show as always...

OH yeah. Dang memory... Regarding political sociopathic behavior of late; I thought Rudy Ray Moore was dead?!?
Avatar 10:49am Trouble:

roy moore is the man running for congress in alabama who is a notorious crazze judge who has now been exposed as preying on teenage girls.
Avatar 10:50am Chris from DC:

Really liking this Belbury Circle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50am Itzall Ablurr:

(I know- it was a feeble attempt at "humor" where there may be none, in this case) You do know who Rudy Ray Moore is, of course...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52am Itzall Ablurr:

AND, he is, indeed still dead.
Avatar 11:05am HarktheUmpire:

weirdest version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps I ever heard
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am Itzall Ablurr:

Super excited that my copy of "Even A Tree Can Shed Tears" came in the mail yesterday! I plan to listen to all 4 sides in one sitting this weekend. Tip of the hat to Joe McG for making me aware of it!
Avatar 11:10am Joe McG:

My pleasure, Itzall!

Hi Joe, and thanks again!

Hello Trouble
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am Passaic River Blues:

Man, we're getting the quintessence of Trouble today. Flawless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am Itzall Ablurr:

Hey Wild Neil, yes that is right- Trouble put my memory train back on the tracks about that a few posts back. That track by the Lounge Lizards was pretty great, I'd forgotten about them (too)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am Ike:

Pronounced "Mark Vee", I think. Not 100% sure. Or maybe Mark 5? She does a good show either way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am Ken From Hyde Park:

"Mark Vee" is correct. I made a note of that on her last show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29am tiago:

is this a cover of John Martyn :D

Oops! Typo: "separating"

@queems: She really is fantastic, and I'm fairly certain I first heard her on TMW.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46am steveo:

colleen was really fantastic live last week also
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am steveo:

11:46 "fantastic" co-incidence
Avatar 11:48am Chris from DC:

Yeah hoping to see Colleen down here next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49am Passaic River Blues:

@steveo: hahaha Synchronous fandom. How does she approach live performance? Does she play live with sequencers, pedals, and whatnot, or is something entirely different?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50am steveo:

Do it. And bring earplugs for the opening act (Jon Porras).
Avatar 11:52am βrian:

The office chairs are dancing now.
Avatar 11:53am Chris from DC:

Really, is Jon Porras on the whole tour? Oh yes, I know how loud Barn Owl can be.

Avatar 11:55am Paul In Bloomfield:

great track here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56am steveo:

The show was live with her whole electronic setup. (You can see better at this long interview/performance from WNYC's Soundcheck www.facebook.com... )

Looks like Porras is not with her in DC at Songbyrd; I appreciate what he's doing, but it's quite physical and not always in a pleasant way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57am Itzall Ablurr:

My click-star finger is tired this morning! Great show, thank you!
