Where are the Snowdens of yesteryear.

2013/06/16

Here’s last night’s (2013-06-14) Memo Of the Air show on KNYO-LP, ready to listen to right away or download and keep for free.

Note: for the second time ever I forgot to press record before I started the show, but twenty minutes into it I corrected that, so that’s where the recording begins. Here’s what went out on the air that you won’t hear in the recording:

1. Introduction music. Intro with station I.D. and mention of underwriters, and notice of upcoming Mendocino school board meeting.

2. This poem from Greg Ross’ FutilityCloset.com

3. The poem she being Brand by e.e. cummings.  Um– here it is, for the time being.

And 4. The story Cake from Lucy Corin’s new book /One Hundred Apocalypses/. (The recording above begins with the very last few lines of that.)  (I read it from mcsweeneys.net, but now I can’t find it there. Odd.

Anyway, there, now you’re set. And in addition here are some things to look at and/or listen to and/or think about, that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites to your right:

Aesop in limericks, illustrated. (Look for right arrow to click, to page through it.) http://publicdomainreview.org/2013/05/30/the-babys-own-aesop-1908/

Numinous tintype stop-o-mation. http://boingboing.net/2013/06/07/tintype-stop-motion-animation.html

Phone-calling charity companies spend almost all the money you give them on themselves. Only a tiny amount trickles through to where they lie to you that it’s all going. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=kV8GOuxesJw#!

What happens when American tantrum-throwing lunatic conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones goes on a show run by British grownups. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22832994

The humane katzenklavier. (Humane because the cats are not real cats, and they’re squeezed, not pounded on the tail with hammers.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxEHi6Mlzmk

“Your drums? Beautiful drums, man. Rented? Yours? I love the drums.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=M65Dx0STe2M

    Hi. I saw how you couldn’t find that story on mcsweeneys.net and I thought it would be so cool if I tried to find it for you and succeeded so I am still going try to do that but … guess what? You couldn’t find the story there but I couldn’t even find “there.” No mcsweeneys.net at all. I said, “Huh.” And then I wrote this. See ya.
