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.

Dear Trouble and Caitlin! Hello. Glad you are together on the radio. Nice artwork. Are you playing Brian Eno in reference to the John Schaeffer shows of the "Berlin Series" at the former wintergarden in Battery Park. I saw "Heroes". Jonathan Meiburg (and his group) was great.
Avatar 9:25am northguineahills:

I was going to say, Paul Miller sampled that, then realized it was Dj Spooky. A fave of mine. I've seen him live many times, but he comes off as a prick. He got into fisticuffs w/ a friend of mine b/c he took a track of his (well, the rest of the group as well), w/o crediting them while touring Europe around 2000.

There's an incredible occult/new age book store in Cambridge called Seven Stars-- tons of tarot decks and crystals, plus shelves upon shelves of books about everything from astrology to cryptozoology. My girlfriend and I go a few times a year and spend hours there. I don't think I've ever seen it not busy.

About 5 years ago, a major collector of astrology and tarot ephemera donated about 10,000 books, journals, private press publication and tarot decks to the university library where I worked. I helped accession a lot of it into the rare books and manuscript library. It was a cool experience.

Last I heard, Jodorowsky still held court at a cafe in Paris where he does weekly tarot readings.

Stashu used to do tarot card readings on her overnight shows a few years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53am Webhamster Henry:

I think a mashup of Tarot, Loteria and Oblique Strategies would cover the deck landscape pretty well.
Hey! I even have an app in the app store that works kind of like a Tarot deck for relationship improvement: "True Love Now".

...and another thing about George is that he customizes watches! Whenever you see George, you should always ask to see what's on his wrist that day. It'll be an interesting design exercise.

He's also the guy who made that cool WFMU watch which was sold recently at the Wake auction last weekend.

If anyone gets a chance to see it, the Leonard Nimoy "In Search Of" episode about Salem is pretty great. The twist is that it's not about the witch trials per se, but the witch culture that popped up there in the 20th century. Lots of great '70s witchiness, and a lot of the shops (and witches!) featured are still there today.
  11:37am kevlicki:

Good morning Trouble! Listening while we pull radishes from the field today.
There are two sisters that produce some beautiful lunar calendars, our in Portland. Check out @thefarwoods on IG

And for all you CAT LOVERS, there is a new deck called the Considerate Cat Tarot by Madeleine Belanger. All of her cat illustrations are real cats, and many are from the local rescue group. She includes 50 rescue stories at the back of her book and 5% of all the tarot deck proceeds go towards local cat rescue work in Vancouver.

I've been trying to look this up and kept failing because the protagonist's name is spelled funny in the title – but FYI, in case songs with witchy references come up again as a topic, I remember Vin Scelsa mentioned that "Marie La Peau" by "Saloom, Sinclair & The Mother Bear" was a huge WFMU hit way back in the beforetimes - like, the late 1960s.
