“We have met the enemy and he is us.” –Walt Kelly
Here’s last Friday night’s (2013-09-27) Memo Of the Air show on KNYO-LP, ready to listen to right away and/or download and keep for free. This is the show where, half an hour into it, Dr. Carol Queen speaks at Helen Schoeni Theater in Mendocino on the subject of the sex vibrator.
And here are some other things to look at and/or listen to, that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites to your right.
Ten minutes with the amazing Nick Bertke (aka Pogo), whose compositions typically and deservedly get millions of views, and who is banned from performing in or even visiting the United States for I think five more years because of a green card foulup.
One of Pogo’s latest.
And commercial application for this technique. An ad, featuring Pogo, for LG home appliances.
…Which is weird, because I had never given a thought to the existence of LG, and the day after I saw that ad I scored a six-year-old LG portable DVD burner in the Saint Vincent De Paul thrift store for five dollars, and it works great.
The Leidenfrost maze.
An airplane’s sonic shock cloud explained. At the end of the explanation you’re shown lensing shock ripples moving outward from a rocket.
At a Moth gathering, Starlee Kine tells a comical horror story about new-age-y therapy, and she tells it in a horiz-striped long-sleeve dress, and gesticulates not merely nervously but spasmodically, and you can’t help but be fascinated by (slash) adore her the way, in The Fisher King, Robin Williams’ character viewed Amanda Plummer’s character. (20 minutes.)
“Fuck off back to Austria [sic].”
“Russia hasn’t had a single smart leader since Peter the Great. If Nicholas the second was smart, he would have ripped Lenin’s head off. And there would have been no revolution.”
North Korea Mass Games. (The pixels of the vast video screen on the entire far section of the stadium are colored cards manipulated by thousands of people there.)
George W. Patterson was the first man in the world to think of swinging lit light bulbs around his head.
Frolic, frolic, frolic. My favorites are the Ulan Batorians.
Statistics explained by dancers dancing. Give this series of four short videos the time it demands. It is /extremely cool/.
All he has to do is stop resisting. And then, right in the middle of resisting being punched and kicked by the four or five officers swarming on him like fire wasps, you see (at about 1 minute in) he makes the poor choice of resisting the savage attack of the police dog that additional peace officers turn loose upon him. Alls I’m sayin’ is, he was clearly jaywalking, man.
So sugar turns out to be as addictive as cocaine.
