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.

OMG Trouble, you're hilarious and evil. I just see the name "Claudine Longet" and I start to chuckle. Remember when SNL did the "Claudine Longet Skiing Invitational," where they just took footage of skiers falling and dubbed in the sound of gunshots? You've gotten off on the wrong foot, young lady, and I love it!

OBA. I like that. My OBAs are from when I played his albums so much I scratched them, then had to buy him a brand spankin' new one, then I had the scratchy one for my very own.

Your highly skilled DJ knows precisely when to drop the Barbara Lyon. I can see Barbara on a barstool in 1976, muttering about Doris Day having the career she should have had.

Kitties, not kiddies. I'm hip.
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 9:19am PeterRarebit:

Thought this was Doris Day. Had to take a break.

I would play my brothers' LPs on my little red and white plastic fold-up player (couldn't figure out their NASA-like gargantuan component systems) and then lie about playing them, even though they were horribly disfigured with scratches after my usage (like they'd run through a thicket of brambles, chased by an assailant). My player was only made for 45's and my collection consisted of read-along books (I'm A Little Teapot) and floppy freebies ripped out of National geographic (Sounds of the Humpback Whale, for ex.).

Hadn't heard of Mary Lattimore til Jeffrey played her on "Shrunken Planet" Saturday. Really like the relaxing vibe. We needed it after Barbara Lyon got us all rockin'. Whew.

Hey Trouble just got to my computer. Christie veto and late night PATH closing is another tone-deaf response by maybe as you said to show they don't have to care at all about riders. But could also backfire and become a rallying point for NJ commuters who need PATH for work and are being robbed at the tunnels. Its shockingly counterproductive to JC renewal.
