“One will rarely err if extreme actions be ascribed to vanity, ordinary actions to habit, and mean actions to fear.” –Nietzsche
Here is the recording of last Friday night’s (2014-01-17) 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:
Another example of technology catching up to science fiction. Animated famous old paintings a la Gordon Eklund’s 1978 story /Vermeer’s Window/.
300,000,000,000 suns. Exactly ten times as many suns as there are centimeters per second in the speed of light in a vacuum. Hmm.
The NSA-O-Matic. Spin again. Spin again. Spin again. Begin again.
Okay, it’s 1988. Two fans break into dim Star Trek: Next Generation sets to make a documentary. They bumble around, knock things over, discuss what to steal, and eventually are discovered and chased away, all the while shooting VHS video. 32:17.
Nobody ever told this attractive young couple never to lift and twist at the same time. Use your knees, not your back.
The clockworks of an operating CT scanner.
A very slow match.
Old free clipart.
Bomber noses then–
Empathy. You know you want it.
The crying shame of pubic hair grooming injuries.
The flysch in Zumaia.
Your tax dollars at work.
A lovely, short, UK-student-made story about a quiet man and his prison-convict pen pal. I think this might be what America looks like to British people.
A light fixture based on The Artifact in Eureka. The shadows it makes are the cool part.
David Lynch’s 1991 Clean Up New York ad. Apparently waste paper breeds flocks of demon rats.
Further bird-steals-camera video. “The game continues with different players.”
“Yeah, yeah, I hear what you’re saying. Elmore Leonard definitely had something going. But Carl Hiaasen, also. The same– um… The– uh… What were we talking about?”
