Issues, they have, hmmm?


“Is there anything more capitalist than a peanut with a top hat, cane, and monocle selling you other peanuts to eat.” — Cohen

Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-08-08) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click. It’s brief this time, just three hours long, because of a technical problem that began about midnight, whose symptom was a buffer loop of my own voice repeating over and over on the air a ten-second snatch of an article about abortion, and since the upgrade locking us all out of the system for our own protection there was nothing I could do about it. For all I know it continued until Saturday.

But you don’t experience any of that. You get a pretty good three-hour show, with an Alex Bosworth story, some professional grade kvetching about so much unfairness of things, lukewarm girl-on-girl action, and so on. Exactly what you need.

And here are some links to further other things that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites in the column to your right:

/This Land Is Mine./ From Nina Paley, copyfighter and animator of /Sita Sings the Blues/.

/Sita Sings the Blues/.

Progress in space.

Virtual tours of Mars and Earth’s moon.

New (old) Nazca lines.

Physical progress toward the singularity.

Wildlife photography perfected.

Q: What makes a thousand-dollar violin sound like a million-dollar violin?  A: A nickel’s worth of fungus.


Digital atlas of the Roman Empire. Move about, zoom in and out, just like Google Earth. Sadly, no street view yet. They’re workiing on that.

Wait, that’s not right. Street view, ancient Rome:

Inspirational quotes to buck you up when you are feeling down.

World War One women at work.

A non-satirical real advertisement for a Japanese product to improve your smile strength.

“For weeks I’d been wanting to write a straw man argument takedown, but I couldn’t find the right argument to oppose. Then my four year-old said something totally wrong about String Theory.”

“I condemn this bombing of civilians.”

Again with the lovely little cars and trucks.

Some interesting people from long ago and far away.

A compendium of close calls.

Sugar bagels. Sand moose.

And the anatomy of songs.
