A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane 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 9:24am glenn:

if you like scott and bailey, i recommend last tango in halifax, also with sarah lancashire, and the magnificent nicola walker.
Avatar 9:26am Trouble:

@glenn i tried last tango in halifax. the countryside is breathtaking!!! but i couldn't really connect with the high drama. admittedly scott & bailey can also be over the top at times...

no, you really need to give it a chance. it gets really weird and dark below the surface.

Sometimes it seems like half of my professional life is fixing em dashes and en dashes that have turned into unicode gibberish like &8211; or such.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14am Granny Spicy Tuna:

i am a fan of the em dash
Avatar 10:15am βrian:

Interesting that in the world of XML, &8212; is technically identical to an em dash and so can be interchangeable for a given processor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18am Webhamster Henry:

Just saying "em dash" brings me back to the type cases in print shop class 50 years ago. Time to tighten the quoins!

Avatar 10:44am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Gee, wouldn't it be cool if Matt Groening would do a T-shirt for WFMU....hmmnnn....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44am Cmurtha:

I don't know trouble. I am not a dream interpreter. Though next time I go to the Suliyemaniyye library I can flip open a dream interpretation manual if I can find it/read it. I'd say it means you are in the avante-gard! or that maybe your dreams are connected with David Lynch or someone else. Both good things I'd wager! All the dreams I can remember are lucid.
  10:45am Matthieu:

great show ! Just to say this Chico Mello track was so good... it seems like pretty hard to find as well
Avatar 10:46am Trouble:

one of my favorite songs : www.mojo4music.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46am abutthegreat:

Good segue, to Massive Attack. But I would have gone with the remix, No Protection, by Mad Professor.

Avatar 10:48am northguineahills:

@WN: It's been documented in interviews, Groening is a fan of WFMU

My nightmares are too weird to put in words or graphics. I'm insane enough already to try to articulate them.
Avatar 10:49am Trouble:

@matthieu, Chico is also in Telebossa. it's easier to find those cd's. they are gorgeous and i have played them lots on this show, if you want to listen before buying. super dolls, those two!

Avatar 10:55am northguineahills:

It's been a while, PRB, but, yeah, true, It took me forever to get into EBTG, and think it was their early folky albums that was my gateway.

Black Ice Cream (Black Sesame Seed flavor please!)!

How can someone be an #!# at wfmu? All the djs seem so nice, and I feel like the Wholesomeness of Hardy White, Clay Pigeon and others should dispel that kind of energy

"Françoiz Breut is the stage name of Françoise Breut." Anyone know the significance of this change?

What the Oscar said.

@Ike: Someone last week accused me as being as curmudgeonly as you. I took it as a compliment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21am steveo:

haha; slightly more subtle, though; maybe it's to do with rejecting the name as the feminine form of François.

@Steveo: She used to be a cartoonist and her signature was Françoiz Brrr www.radio.cz... (final paragraph, in french)

"coquetry" she says
