   “There’s no I in ομάδα.” –John Wolper

Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-04-18) 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 enjoy that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites in the column to your right:

A 1937 argument in favor of sitting in your room playing video games on this beautiful day.

1939 in color.

The world now has access to 18,000 British Pathe newsreels. And YOU are there.


“These ribs are awesome.”

The fantastic Mr. Fox.

The Santa Claus of Easter.

–and the nightmare extended to cakes.

Juanita sent me a link to the original video of Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye (which has reached nearly 500,000,000 views!) (Five hundred million!):
–in order to show me this video that Gotye assembled out of a few of the thousands of videos made by people playing cover versions of it:
–which includes part of the one I like the most:
–and part of this 5-people-playing-one-guitar version:
–and part of this parody of that:

I saw this math trick and heard Groucho Marx saying, “There’s something corrupt going on around my pants and I just can’t seem to locate it.”

–Because this Marx Brothers routine showed how the trick works:

35 scientific concepts that will help you understand the world.

Wow. Wow!

First use of a new 360-degree panoramic film technique.

Moving through New York.

Size. “A magical, miraculous, horrible, scary thing.” There’s scale information at the end, if you want to skip to it.

Nearly the same thing, except made of geese.

Amazing beaver action.

The kelpies.

Parametric expression.

Yet another clever use for 3-D printing.

I don’t know what’s happening here, but it looks like the far future, where of course they’ll still be using plastic spaghetti strainers to find a lost wedding ring in the sand.

Super Planet Crash.

Tire change then and now.

Twenty-four librarians who will never be buried in a Jewish cemetery.

And all about the vast and wonderful Project Gutenberg.
