Nighthawks at the diner.

2014/01/11

    Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-01-10) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

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

I’m not sure what’s going on in this story, but the music and some of the images are interesting. The time-multiplied circus bits, especially.

The same band. Another interesting gimmick video.

I think it’s strange that only like 1,800 people wanted to look at that, but 20,000 people looked at Juanita’s pet bird whistling Row Your Boat. Here.

And 25,000 people watched this desmid reproduce by division.

But only 9,000 people watched Deborah Henson-Conant play this electric harp. What the hell? She’s thrilling.
