As devin pointed out, importing the text list via fileIO is very possible. 
Assigning markers for each of them is easy too using score recording. 
ScoreRecording is _very_ powerful, I use it for creating the framework of 
entire projects from database-outputted textlists. A big timesaver.
The handler below just sets the marker of the current frame. 
It assumes dMarker to be a string.

on setMarkerOfCurrFrame dMarker
    set the frameLabel = dMarker

-- Welcome to Director --
setMarkerOfCurrFrame "Blah"
