Do it yourself. How to watch the entire development of a chicken embryo into a live peeping baby chicken in your own kitchen. It involves a plastic cup, some vinyl food wrap, and calcium DL-lactate pentahydrate.* (I’m suggesting the obvious continuation of the project to the chicken salad stage. That isn’t shown here.) (*Whatever you do, don’t substitute in G-23 paxilon hydrochlorate, because the resulting chicken can become highly aggressive, committing unspeakable acts including cannibalism, rape, and self-mutilation. “What’ll happen if they take the ship?” “If they take the ship, they’ll rape us to death, eat our flesh, and sew our skins into their clothing. And, if we’re very, very lucky, they’ll do it in that order.” Anyway, read labels and use as directed in the proper quantities.)

Day-O! De dead!

   “Knock-knock. Who’s there? Nosferatu. Blah-ha-ha.”

Here’s the recording of last night’s Night o’ de Day o’ de Dead (2019-11-01) KNYO and KMEC Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to re-enjoy. (Left-click for instant-play.

And you can go to Links To Recorded Audio, see above, and hear older shows yet, though the farther back in time you try to go, the less likely it is to work right, just like real life.

I just remembered saying on the air near the beginning of the show that the time change is /next/ week. It was because I was in such a hurry getting ready, what with the power having been off all week till Thursday, and looked up the time-change date, read /March 10/ but only registered the 10. So on the extremely tiny chance you see this before it’s late enough for you to miss your appointment in Samarra, set your grandfather clock back tonight. In a perfect world there wouldn’t be any of this newfangled clock-changing jiggery-pokery. It’d be cash on the barrelhead, midnight is midnight, gol-durn it.

An /ordinary/ toilet drain seal (you put it on the floor, on the mouth of the drainpipe, drop the toilet on top of that, then screw the toilet down) is about the size of a small cereal bowl, made out of sticky flesh-colored wax, costs about $2.50 and tax, and lasts until your house is vaporized by the Earth being swallowed into the expanding Sun. Now, if you want to pay a little more for a seal that will last until the heat death of the infinite multiverse, you can get a fancy blue mil-spec thing like this one. And every time you look at the toilet, you’ll get the pleasure of knowing that there’s a lovely blue plumbing part down under there that you bought because you liked it, because you deserve it. You’ve worked hard in your life and why not treat yourself? Also you can talk about it at holidays and family gatherings and when you’re interviewed by local news about your neighbor and that monstrous act he committed, because he always just seemed like a quiet normal guy and nobody had the faintest idea. What a pretty color. I saw a Karmann-Ghia that color once. I wonder where that car is now. (Just for future reference, this paragraph is a representative snapshot of my internal dialog 97% of the time, though it’s rarely about plumbing or cars.)

Speaking of which, I want a car with a dashboard that has either /all/ of these things on it or only a mechanical speedometer and maybe a high-beam indicator: a /mechanical/ high-beam indicator– a little clockwork-powered semaphore flap with white paint behind it, and mechanical headlights that don’t switch between bulbs or filaments inside but swivel up and down on a cable to a pedal on the floor.

If you were there you’d say, /Oh, honey. Oh, no. Don’t feel bad. I’ll pick it up. Go on, take your break. That’s okay./ We’ve all done something like this, and it’s only toilet paper; it’s not as though anything broke.

I love this man’s wonderful videos about repairing little steam engines. This engine is one of the many he built himself in the first place.

And stories about remarkable chickens, including the real life demon chicken breed with black feathers, eyes, skin, claws, meat. Everything about it is black, like the story /The Black Sorcerer of the Black Castle/, by Andrew Offutt, which was in one of the paperback books in the two full shopping bags of absolutely favorite books we loaned to Mickie when he was in the hospital for months in the early 1990s and we never got them back because he threw them out or gave them away. /That’s/ something I’d use a time machine for, or try, just to test it. Get those books back, /then/ go kill Hitler, and do the other things, not because it’s easy but because it’s hard. Deal with the consequences later, or rather let the Time Police restore the proper timeline; that’s what they’re paid for. Don’t take the man’s job, Jack.

The Gloriana Opera Company /Really Rosie/ producer and director and a couple of stars showed up to talk about theater in general and their /Really Rosie/ show in particular. A brief appearance by amazing but shy-when-offstage Sandy Glickfeld to drop off a tape of a show she and Jack Leung, among others, did in 1988. Ken, who five years ago simplified and robusticated KNYO’s electronic plant, was in town so he sat down to reveal some subtle intricacies of the Ghost Ship disaster you might have heard about in the news. Alex Bosworth called, and for a change, and for a wonder, we set a reasonable time limit on our conversation and stuck to it. It might have been the subject matter: Dean Martin’s execrable Matt Helm movies. /Two/ poetry sections in the show, one early, one late. And all of it with my lower back giving me the kind of trouble nobody can help with, though there are plenty of gurus and practitioners around who will take your money to pretend to, pain that you know will go away soon by itself like it always does, but in the moment, wincing makes you warble somewhat, and pause once in awhile, and say, /Oh, goddammit, ow. Jeez./ All things considered, a busy and edutaining and not too torturous adventure, accompanied by genuine Japanese honking bluesmasters and 1940s big-hat cowboys whistling for their supper. It’s the next day now and the back is a lot better, thank you, except I just got a twinge when I carried all the video equipment to the car in one basket like an idiot, so, tch.

The thing is, KZYX somehow burns $600,000 a year, including paying a handful of people in the office $300,000, all the while it costs less than a dollar an hour to pump every part of their entire system with electricity to “keep the great shows on the air,” and the people working to do those great shows, the local airpeople forced to beg for all that money to pay the people in the office, are paid nothing, nada, zilch, bupkis, zip, not even a nickel an hour. And that’s not right, mainly because there are very well qualified radio people who need that money, who are prevented from using those FM broadcast band frequencies to do radio, precisely /because/ they need to be paid for their work, and scabs, willing to work for less, or in this case, for a pat on the head, are sitting on that airtime, keeping us out.

Now extrapolate this to explain everybody doing everything everywhere. If there is a miracle, it’s that we haven’t blown the world up a thousand times over by now, not out of malice but just sleepiness and then blaming others, imaginary /or/ real, for problems that could all be solved by pulling over and taking a nap. Seriously, just stop whatever’s so important, make it safe, and let your eyes close.

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2019-10-04) KNYO and KMEC Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to re-enjoy. (Left-click for instant-play. Right-click to download.) And thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost here’s a page with the latest show and also other ones going back a couple of years. And you can go to Links To Recorded Audio, see above, and hear older shows yet, though the farther back in time you try to go, the less likely it is to work right, just like real life.

Thomas stopped in, his mind seemingly racing, to tell about his several new websites and a fresh plan for ultimate riches and world domination. We’ll see what happens as he carries it out. Maybe the saying about absolute power corrupting absolutely will turn out to be wrong in his case, and wouldn’t that be nice. Al Nunez, jack of all trades, visited for a good half an hour. You might know him from his writing in the MCN Announce email listserv, chronicling personal triumphs and setbacks and hopes regarding health and living conditions, fluctuating levels of equanimity and life satisfaction, and lately progress on restoring his work truck. He’s a gentle, shy man who required a little prompting at first but soon began to spill the beans, as they say, on various subjects mechanical and painterly and welding-related in a pleasing comic New Jerseyish accent, though he was born and raised not at all in New Jersey but in San Francisco. See, he ran away from home at fifteen, and… he tells it fine; I’ll let him tell it. This show also features Scott M. Peterson’s new story /Mendocino Messiahs/. Scott explains how to multiply good telecommuting jobs in our area like loaves and fishes or, more realistically, like rabbits. The story also relates some of the history of Jim Jones’ mass-murder/suicide Jesus cult that I somehow missed in reading on the subject all these years. For example, the explanation of /exactly how/ Jones persuaded everyone to all drink the poison at the same time. It wasn’t just religious zeal. Well, it was that, but it was also a clever awful trick, very like Lucy pulling away the football but then finally not, where the football in my analogy is a poison bomb. Details: Scott’s story begins three hours and twenty minutes in.

Besides all that, here are links to further worthwhile educational and/or sensational items that I set aside for you while gathering the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

Not as tit for tat as all that. Tit for tat would be if he bit the bird’s nose. I’ve never had my nose bitten by a bird, but I had plenty of fingers bitten by as-yet-unfriendly/untrusting pet birds before a learned the trick. Use a t-shirt. Gently, as inevitably as the tide, but faster than the tide –more like an individual wave– envelope the entire bird in the t-shirt, and you are boss of where to put the bird, for the time being.

How we get speakers. It interests me how much is still done by hand, at least in this particular factory. It reminds me of when I bought a couple of electromechanical reverb-spring tanks to build into a mixing board in, uh, 1985. They were the same kind that you see in very old tube-type guitar amplifiers. On each one was a little sticker that said in tiny type, “This equipment was made by beautiful women in controlled atmospheric conditions.”

No-one showed up to talk, and Alex didn’t call –I hope he’s all right; he broke his leg last week, remember– and I read pretty fast, so I used up the material I brought by around three or three-thirty, made use of some leftover stuff from weeks before, read a story in the New Yorker that the AVA recommended highly, and rightly so. I read a story from a book I found in my box, by Karen Russel, that now I remember Alice Einhorn loaned me years ago, oops. The book: /St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised By Wolves/; the story, the title of this post. After that, a set of music on the subject of dreams sweet and not, and then an old radio show about a nightmare science experiment gone horribly wrong, involving hubris, of course, and the resulting giant intelligent/malevolent uncontrollable spider monster addicted to drugs and bent on carnage. A pretty good show.

Besides all that, here are links to further worthwhile educational and/or sensational items that I set aside for you while gathering the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

Some more prose-poetry from Jay Frankston, further chronicles of Craig Stehr, John Sakowicz proposal of a Mendocino Mondragon Corporation, the Comtesse deSpair traveled to visit Elly Cooney and have a chat (chat’s not in the show; that’s just cool news), and Alex Bosworth, on top of all his other troubles, went to take out the trash, the yard light was out, and someone, possibly the meter reader, had left the cover off a maintenance box in the ground… oy. Anyway, Alex called from the hospital at about 3am Arkansas time and, in spite of the pain management medicine for his /broken and recently reset leg/, told a few complex off-color jokes with a Yiddish lilt in the flourish. In stage magic, that part is called the prestige. With regular jokes it’s simply the punchline, but in both Jewish humor and calligraphy it’s properly the /flourish/, the right word, the right tool for the job. In pornography it’s the /money shot/. What a wonderful language, isn’t it? where every category of experience gets its own name for the payload, or sting, or kicker, or takeaway, or chorus-and-fade, or switcharoo, or bangarang, or boot. I’ll stop now.

Besides all that, here are links to further worthwhile educational and/or sensational items that I set aside for you while gathering the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right, like, for example, the fabulous Everlasting Blort, and the similarly fabulous B3ta, which I make a special point of mentioning here because the links I get from them don’t promote them, and I realize I’ve been unfairly ignoring that:

You know how they sometimes have two superheroes blasting their conflicting powers at each other –a freeze ray coming from one and a heat ray coming from the other– or two wizards blowing competing spells at each other, the spells meeting in the air while they grimace and clench all their muscles to keep the spells going?

Of course I read this on the air, but I wanted you to see the photographs of the famous recent attack on the Arabian oil boobs. That would be the Arabia that just last month crucified and/or beheaded a few hundred men, women and children for attending a peaceful protest or posting a derisive photograph or mouthing off to a rich person. They chop off the heads of children. It makes it hard to be on their side about any goddamn thing at all. And yet we’re still selling them hundreds of millions of dollars in bombs and rockets and so on, to do as they please with it all, and it pleases them lately to bombard Syrian civilians, hence the protests and the mouthing off. I think that’s worse than a few oil boobs burning down. I don’t really care about those oil boobs. Do you? Because who was hurt there? Nobody. That’s just vandalism. Mass murder is murder.

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2019-09-13) KNYO and KMEC Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to re-enjoy. (Left-click for instant-play. Right-click to download.) And thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost here’s a page with the latest show and also other ones going back a couple of years. And you can go to Links To Recorded Audio, see above, and hear older shows yet.

Right off the bat some nice heroic people came to talk about their Fort Bragg branch of the Street Medicine Project. (They do a free clinic on Wednesdays at the old Coast Hotel. And Kay Rudin brought her ever-bigger African-American dog Wally Ballou, demonstrated /earglasses/ and, amid a blizzard of my unfortunately characteristic interruptions, told twenty-five pounds of relatively unknown history about the original Woodstock art and music festival which she was, as she says, kidnapped into working at. Alex Bosworth called to bitch about his ex and reveal the secrets of his literary involvement in what’s called Spanking Erotica, the fastest growing kind; who knew? And several /interesting/, very wise-seeming young people wandered in to, among other things, read a story about historical blow-job poetry and explain Narcan. And I still managed to read most of what I brought to read, but by going so fast that it gave me a headache that you can hear. Busy night. Would go again.

Besides all that, here are links to further worthwhile educational and/or sensational items that I set aside for you while gathering the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

Pop-up wooden castles. This odd and beautiful handheld art makes me think, for some murky reason, of the film MirrorMask which, when I looked it up just now to check whether is should be two words or one (answer: one), I found out cost less than $4 million to make. That astounding, compelling story, suitable for all ages. And you get crappy movie after violent crazy crappy movie anymore edited by people with the attention span of a gnat, apparently, and they all cost four /hundred/ million dollars, and how is that even possible? That’s like a whole space program. It costs more money to make a movie about going to outer space than it costs to build rockets and actually go to outer space. Which reminds me of an idea I had long ago that they’d do better to give a million dollars each to a hundred filmmakers than give a hundred-million dollars to one guy. You’d a get a few stinkers, sure, but some of those movies would be outstanding. See, this guy’s fine art costs, say, a few hundred or a few thousand dollars, where a bunch of paint just sloshed at random on a wrecked car door can go for a million dollars? To me, that’s nuts.

/Discovery/ was last year’s flavor of Star Trek. It was about an interdimensional network of fungi, navigated by tardigrades the size of a refrigerator. I liked it for a little while, but then sort of wandered away before it even finished. My favorite character was Tilly (red hair, Asperger’s). Now there’s a new flavor of Star Trek, about old Picard, and I’m really looking forward to it.

   “When Bert [Lahr] appeared on set [in Cowardly Lion costume made out of a real slaughtered lion], it set Judy [Garland] off giggling and she couldn’t stop, probably because of the amphetamine pills the studio issued everyone, maybe only because she was a little girl and Bert was funny, and Victor [Fleming, director], also see amphetamine, ya know, savagely slaps her face and he bellows at her to cut it out. And that’s the magic of Hollywood.”

Before Christina Hendricks became a famous actress ( /Firefly/,  /Madmen/), she made a living as a /hand model/. Remember the poster for the film /American Beauty/? It’s a hand pressing a rose against a woman’s belly. No-one remembers whose belly that was –some belly model; Hollywood is very specialized anymore– but that’s /Christina Hendricks’ hand/.

Jessi Combs is dead. “Jessi Combs died on Tuesday, August 27th, while attempting to break her own land speed record on a dry lake bed in Oregon. Known as the fastest woman on four wheels, Combs was trying to hit 619 mph in a jet-engine-powered car of her own design when she fatally crashed. She was a race car driver, an intuitive automotive engineer, a crackerjack mechanic, and a teacher. Pretty and smart and happy and brave and accomplished, and thirty-six or thirty-nine years old, depending on who you ask.” It’s too bad. She wasn’t reckless. Things go wrong. I can’t watch this without crying; you try it.

And the 180 h.p. Chrysler air-raid siren that you could hear from 40 miles away. That’s what we need, for fire season. Just two or three for all of Mendocino County, and pay high-school kids to polish them up and check the oil and battery every once in awhile and stand ready. It would be a branch of service with a cool uniform, with fedora hats, and inflated electrical insulator shapes for epaulets and around the elbows and knees. Combat Doc Martins, of course. And refurbed Google Glass headsets to communicate. And the whole program would cost peanuts. /Peanuts./

Pre-stressed mice.

   “Literal machine translation often misses the mark by a mile, but true translation can seem to spin off past the moon. Take ‘He was never more sinister than when he was at his most polite, which is probably the truest test of breeding.’ (J.M. Barrie’s description of his Captain Hook.) Here it is in Scottish Gaelic: ‘Bheir e air falbh thu gu saoghal dìomhair. Tall agus tana, tha a ghàirdeanan sìnte a-mach a’ toirt comhfhurtachd agus uabhas dhuinn.’ Which gives, ‘It takes you away to a mysterious world. Tall and thin, his outstretched arms comfort and shock us.’ And there is the entire story compressed to madness, backwards and in high heels, or rather: Agus tha an sgeulachd gu lèir air a dhlùthadh gu cuthach, air ais agus ann an sàilean àrda. (‘And some rin up hill and down dale, knapping the chucky stanes to pieces wi’ hammers, like sae mony road-makers. They say it is to find out how the warld was made!’) Eat your tea and get to work.”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2019-08-16) KNYO and KMEC Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to re-enjoy. (Left-click for instant-play. Right-click to download.) And thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost here’s a page with the latest show and also other ones going back about a couple of years. And you can go to Links To Recorded Audio, see above, and hear older shows yet.

KNYO always comes through like a champ because it’s the first place the MOTA signal goes. On show nights, half an hour or so into the show I’ve got used to putting on a song and using the time to go to KMEC’s computer via remote to check whether the proper switch was set so I won’t be kicked off the air /there/ by automation reverting at the top of the hour (10pm), and I put it right if it’s not right and leave it alone if it is. (Then at the end of the show, just before 5am, I let go of KNYO and set KMEC back to normal.) But this time, at 9:30, the switch I’m used to seeing in KMEC’s operating computer was not on top, and the song was half over and I didn’t have time to go digging. Were things working anyway? I listened to KMEC on my phone: someone’s singing soulfully in Spanish about his inflamed corazon. Tch. Alicia, formerly of KMEC, works at KZYX now, but I texted her. She phoned KMEC. Turns out, a deejay there who shall remain nameless had wandered in, decided to just cut off my show that I spent all week getting ready for and instead play her own records, because, heck, why not, ya know? Sorry, bye, and fixed. And… I think that’s fine. She’s not likely to do it again, but eventually something else goofy will happen or something will break or a person will get a wild hair or a cosmic ray or an EMP will flip some bits, and we will all deal with it. Really this is more like the world I’d like it to be than rigid compliance with expectations in all things. Fascist clockwork may make the trains run on time, but slack is the meat and potatoes of life, and so what if nothing is perfect? Think what a nightmare a perfect world would be. We wouldn’t even be conscious of the horror of it. It’d be like Camazotz. (Not the cross-eyed Mayan bat god but the planet in /A Wrinkle In Time/.)

Anyway, the recording of MOTA, see above, is always made on my end, wherever I’m doing the show from, so it’s complete.

There’s a caption contest on the last page of every New Yorker magazine, and I don’t know why but I always imagine the caption to be something like what this seal is saying. It’s just primally funny, for the same reason: the little office workers, or rich people at a cocktail party, or space creatures, or someone trapped on a desert island, always saying, “Blefgh! … GAAGH… mmmph!… NNNUHngg,” and so on, and understanding each other like an amorphous cloud of birds, the sky black with birds, all turning this way and that at the same time, ink swirling in a glass of water.

How to make a wonderful skylight-looking, skylight-/feeling/ skylight out of a broke teevee you found in the dumpster because someone threw it away because it was a broken teevee. Oh, and also you might need a cheap LED strip. Also it suddenly occurs to me this would make a great thin light table for calligraphy, tracing, photographic contact sheets, old-fashioned art layout, etc.

Watch preying mantises capture lizards and eat their faces alive. Compare to that video I showed you a couple of years ago where a family of happy Asian humans sit around a table eating an octopus alive and laughing happily as it struggles. In that case the only one horrified is the toddler, who soon comes around when she discovers how yummy.

You’ve seen those demos of camera-stabilizing gimbals that use a chicken held in the hand and twisted this way and that, to show how its head stays level with what it’s concerned with. Here’s what the sky looks like if you’re the chicken and you’re concerned with the sky. Look away eventually, because if you go more than twelve hours like this in real time your head will pop off like a ketchup cork.

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2019-08-09) KNYO and KMEC Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to re-enjoy. (Left-click for instant-play. Right-click to download.) And thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost here’s a page with the latest show and also other ones going back about a couple of years. And you can go to Links To Recorded Audio, see above, and hear older shows yet.

Max the Piano Player came and inaugurated the Jack Leung piano on the air. First half an hour of the show, no waiting. Andrew Scully, etc. Alex called and the phone thing wasn’t working right, and mixing board settings didn’t help, and I didn’t want to start messing with the screw adjusts inside the phone thing, so there’s about forty minutes of nearly unlistenable crackly distorted conversation, dang it. I’ll let Jerry know and we’ll get it right for the next person who wants to use it.

Besides all that, here are links to further worthwhile educational and/or sensational items that I set aside for you while gathering the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

Max the Piano Player had other business and so rescheduled till Nagasaki Day (two shows away), but Andrew Scully came to read his stories about the moon landing and the young skater who died in a hit-and-run this week at the intersection of Hwy 1 and Little Lake Road. Kay Rudin brought her big fluffy black dog, who immediately busied himself chewing up the metal typing table. Really, I’m not kidding. Mitch Clogg and Elly Cooney dropped by after the Quentin Tarantino movie to read a story and discuss cancer and look up the Herkimer Battle Jitney on downtown Fort Bragg’s free wi-fi. Alex Bosworth called, revealed some previously unrevealed information about the after-death of one of his former sweeties, the one who took over his email and website and ruined his business out of spite for his repeatedly having saved her miserable life. I said, “What was the attraction? In the first place?” Alex said, “I thought I could help her.” And in between and around all of that are three-plus dozens of thousands of words of poetry and stories, such as Scott Peterson’s thrilling /Serve-UR-Self/, and some compelling music, including hot blues by Carie and the Soulshakers (performing tonight, right now, at Caspar Community Center) and a weird shrieky opera about whales.

A new flavor of Star Trek. Seven of Nine is brought back. I was watching the trailer, and when she spoke and the camera turned to her face I chirped happily and then laughed at the sound I had made. Actress Jeri Ryan has had an interesting real life. She was married to a candidate for senator for a short while, but he dragged her to sex clubs where he expected her to do sex things while everybody watched, because I guess to him the second or third most beautiful woman ever was chopped liver.
