“There is no greater sorrow than to recall, in misery, the time when we were happy.” –Dante

Here’s last Friday night’s (2013-07-26) Memo Of the Air show on KNYO-LP, ready to listen to right away and/or download and keep for free.  You’ll notice that I’ve gone back to my old theme music: Happy Feet by the Paul Whiteman Orchestra.

And here are some things to look at and/or listen to and/or think about, that I found mostly thanks to the freakily observant websites to your right:

Pogo (Nick Bertke) cuts short sounds from old movies together into pieces of music.  Here’s just one of hundreds he’s done.

The story of an epic space battle.  The main illustration looks a lot like the battle near the end of Serenity.  Though that was technically not a space battle, being within atmosphere.

Avenging Uterus!

Pre-last-Olympics synchronized rhythmic gymnastics.  I never saw any of this. I didn’t even know it was an event. You might watch with the sound off; there’s a wheezy old Brit who keeps saying things like, “Lovely,” and, “Good synchronization there,” and, “Oh, ho. She got back into her rhythm,” and, “Look at that. Look at that.”  (30 min.)
