So the Hindenberg, the Titanic and Pearl Harbor walk into a bar…
Here’s last Friday night’s (2013-08-09) Memo Of the Air show on KNYO-LP, ready to listen to right away and/or download and keep for free.
And here are some things to look at and/or listen to and/or think about, that I found mostly thanks to the grand websites to your right:
Arab alligator hand puppet sings in triumph of a million visitors to his Youtube channel. And plays bongos, box and pencil-on-bottle.
I don’t think that’s real dough. I think that’s trick dough. Even so, skillful twirling.
A beautiful clock. Turn your sound on but down a bit, then click.
Dream-inspired artist’s work. (Mark P. sent me this.)
Van Gogh animated. This project reminds me of an old science-fiction story called Vermeer’s Window, by Gordon Eklund, because it obviously was the inspiration for it.
Man plays a lovely and strange electrical instrument he made out of a horse barn shovel. Also he sings into a harmonica microphone attached to it.
Mitochondria, the inspiration for Star Wars’ supernatural midichlorians, and incidentally the real-life power batteries of all our cells.
The Fruity Oaty Bar ad from Serenity. Chinese, not Japanese. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9t4m9dw-fI
I’m giving this one to the Catholics. Scroll down. It apparently lasted weeks and is still going on.

Neil Hilborn, young poet with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), recites his poem describing a love relationship from the point of view of someone with OCD.
Photographs of the contents of mental asylum inmates’ suitcases that have been locked up in storage for like fifty years.
“Papa, I am going to the rink!”
Len Solomon and his various bellophones.
Jack Hues and his solar-electric pin-barrel-automated harpsichord thing. And his friend. Singing She’s Leaving Home by the Beatles.
And, last but not least, Jacob Barton explains and then plays his musical invention the udderbot.
