“If you see a mushroom cloud from an atomic bomb, stick your arm out and hold your thumb over the cloud. If the cloud is larger than your thumb, you’re in the radiation zone and should evacuate.” –Vault Boy

Here is the recording of last Friday night’s (2014-02-14) 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 conscientiously maintained and updated websites listed to your right:

A clever kind of glasses-free 3-D design that works with any old equipment, even a VHS tape and a black-&-white CRT.

Pat Robertson, a compilation. “If enough people prayed, Jesus stilled storms. You could still storms. God doesn’t send hurricanes. But, ya know, the hurricane, for example, is a release meching-nism that God sent in to take the heat out of this world and to transfer heat around various parts of the globe.”  Next breath, “God destroyed Haiti with an earthquake because they swore a pact with the devil to kick out their French masters, yer Napoleon the Third and so forth. But ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other.” And so forth. Also martial arts and a painting of the Buddha are demonic and can destroy you and give you headaches, but God’s fine with Tai Chi. Tai Chi is not demonic; it’s just exercise.

You can see the skid marks. She deliberately stopped and got out of the car. I can only conclude that she’s sacrificing herself to lure the creature into the power lines, which are behind the painter.

And dreamlike but very real climbing up in buildings at night. And then, the next day, they climb up the construction crane boom on top. And the wind is blowing. Would you do this? Because I think I would. I wouldn’t stand up on the very top, though. That would be pushing it.

Now imagine the same sort of thing, except a flimsier crane, and true cold and snow.

You may have heard the couplet, “Pish tosh, said Hieronymus Bosch,” and of course immediately you said, “Tosh doesn’t rhyme with Bosch.” Well, here, immediately you’ll say, “Musically, it should be pish tush.” With two audio examples.
