Подкрасться, ошеломить, скрыться. (Sneak up. Confuse. Еscape.)

Hac in hora
sine mora
corde pulsum tangite;
quod per sortem
sternit fortem,
mecum omnes plangite!

Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-10-03) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

This show has one of the best Alex Bosworth stories I have ever read, about Old Foukey, a real-life, misunderstood, noble monster. A play about an awkward dinner party at the Hitlers’. Also an article explaining about how H.P. Lovecraft was so good at describing gibbering horror because in real life he was reduced to gibbering horror by the sight of nonwhite people –the texture of their flesh, their smells, their unnatural and creepy sex parts and rituals; he wasn’t merely racist, he was pathologically racist. Let’s see, what else… Some nice examples of Balkan punk music, instructions for becoming an exalted being by believing your own publicity, an Alzheimer’s cure that actually works (so far), an article about where better than Homeland Security and war to put a trillion dollars, in case you have a trillion dollars just lying around, which you would if we didn’t try to solve all problems by building and buying and stockpiling stuff to attack and bomb everybody with and then attacking and bombing everybody with it, and even yet more.

(It’s been brought to my attention that some browsers and systems don’t immediately begin to play the recordings I post when you click on /Listen/ to play them, but make you wait up to five minutes while buffering the entire 150-megabyte file, and then they don’t let you jump around in the file by using the drag bar. If that happens to you, you might as well /Download/ the file and not just /Listen/. Save it in your computer or phone or tablet and listen to it anytime, and then start and stop anywhere in the file, mark a time to go back to, whatever.)

And here are some links to interesting not necessarily radio-useful items that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

I don’t even care what this is a commercial for. I love it. I love the way if begins, and middles, and ends.

Owlcam. I actually know a little about owls. Juanita once told me that owls are stupid birds. Chickens are smarter than owls. Beyond its superior ability to see a mouse at night,  jump down on it, swallow it whole like a pill and then later, all surprised, throw up the parts its stomach rejects, an owl is an idiot.

This is interesting because this is what really happened in those days. You kids don’t know. You weren’t there.

And never buy a pet store puppy. Because of how they treat the mothers of pet store puppies. It’s really bad.

This is the opposite of bad. The passionate childish inventor/creator should always be the one to promote the product.

Spectators of atomic doom. (Scroll rightward.)

Besieged by a small army of police thugs and shot to death for camping. Look around for the related story going into details of one of the cops who did the deed. Apparently he joked earlier about what an idiot the guys was for, you know, camping, and discussed with a fellow officer the relative merits of different brands of guns that he would use to shoot a man like that “in the penis”. He didn’t end up shooting him in the penis, though, but everywhere else, so I’m not sure what to make of that.

And in a world where a living creature the size of a house can jump entirely out of the water. Think of the power involved.

I was going to link to another single Vi Hart lesson, but rather– here is a channel of literally hundreds of examples of why Vi Hart should direct the entire educational system.
