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.

So, Trouble, you say you don't want to dis the library by name, then say it's at 5 Corners, which makes it easily identifiable. Like Alan King's, "Don't worry, we're in good hands with THIS insurance co."

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am Bronwyn Bishop:

Back in 2015 I started writing a web series set in 1980 where the characters worry about Reagan getting elected. It seemed hollow when I read over it because I had never been through anything like that. I have since started working on it again with much more understanding and ability to tie it to our current events. Which is good for the quality of my web series and very bad for all of our lives.

  11:40am nick26:

Hey Trouble! Great show today. But you did break through that extended tonal number. Well, the Doors did say Break on through to the other side! That tune was interesting to me even though you were taking a chance with it. It brought me back to the the Beatles LP with an 18 minute break after what was listed as the last song- but the record changer didn't process. After playing it again and waiting patiently I was rewarded with some short little ditty, Can't remember what it was anymore! Carry on!!
