A penny a day is a groat a year. So that’s good.

    “A casual stroll through any lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.” – Nietzsche

Here is the recording of Friday night’s (2014-03-28) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

Several people phoned about the dropouts and the digital hiccuping. We’re working on the problem in baby steps over the course of months. Bob Young is out of town sharing in his partner’s healthcare adventure, and that’s important, and I’ve been away also, with my mother in the hospital. But Bob will be back in the area this coming week for a couple of days to normalize things around the new internet service at the old transmitter site, which truly ought to be connected by then, and I’m bringing my mother home tomorrow, so I’ll be around, so maybe by next Friday night everything will be hunky dory, whatever that means.

In any case, the recording is made at the mixing board where I am when I’m doing the show, so it’s complete and free of Max Headroom hiccups and five-second dropouts. It sounds good, and it’s jammed with information useful to you in all possible future scenarios from asteroid impact to zombie apocalypse, and I’ve been practicing gritting my teeth deliberately to make my esses not whistle quite so piercingly. See what you think.

Here are some links to other interesting things to listen to and look at and play with and think about, that I found mostly thanks to the websites listed to your right:

The title says it’s creepy, but I don’t find it so. It’s a robot erotic dancer on a stick.

Point cloud city. Art generated by scraping Google Street View depth map information. It makes me think of what happens when you try to leave the fully simulated area in The 13th Floor.
