One size fits all.
“Man is an exception, whatever he is. If it is not true that a divine being fell, then we can only say that one of the animals went entirely off its head.” –G.K. Chesterton
Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-10-17) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.
Some more and older and rather better poetry than usual. Ebola terror debunkment. A goofily bloated Respect Mah Authoritah section, including wise advice as to exactly what to do and what not to do when pulled over by a cop, to minimize legal and death problems. Alex Bosworth! John Lewallen! Oni Hartstein’s criticism of the new entrepreneurs of haunted houses from hell. The triumphant return of the Comtesse DeSpair. Columbus (Cristoforo Colon) facts. The rise and fall of famous venerated penis parts and their counterfeits down through Christian history. [tiny print:] Notice of Memo of the Air’s soon proliferating to be on KMEC-LP in Ukiah as well as on the familiar KNYO-LP in Fort Bragg. (Familiar in the embarrassingly sensual and accustomed senses on top of the witch’s pet and the homeboy sense.) Let’s see, what else… It turns out that torture comes in a choice of flavors; who knew? And so on. A long and pleasantly weird show. And Boston Blackie at the end, so.
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:
Some footage from The Great Martian War: 1913-1917. As historically and scientifically accurate as anything else on The History Channel.
Bad Lip Reading /Walking Dead/ part 2.
“In a nature full of wonders, this talented man from the Punjab is not the least of her wonders himself!”
Italian hand talking.
What If. A short film made from Rudyard Kipling’s /If/.
“Don’t come in my ear.”
“I’m gettin’ teed off now!”
“I’m really not okay with lying.”
Monday was loofah day. I missed it again.
Scroll down for the video. When the whole thing spins around on a vertical axis you can hear the Leslie-ing*.
*Leslie rotating speaker horns.
Hipty-hip de guillotine. Pip-pit de by-yo.
Putting the Fleet under.
The Anonabox kickstarter project. About three weeks left to get your own Anonabox for $45.
The Rayleigh-Plesset Equation applied to guns firing underwater. Also Bernoulli’s Principle. Also sonoluminescence! Skip ahead to 6:17 if that’s all you’re interested in. The whole earlier part is also cool.
Same guy explaining the Prince Rupert’s Drop. 1.3 miles per second!
The amazing Tommy Trevor and assistant.
A dance to spring.
Play Tetris Hell. “You won’t like it.”
Speaking of balls: “In the vacuum of space his suit had gradually inflated so that he could not get back into the airlock. The gloves had pulled away from his fingers. He decided to let air the air out…”
Raymond Loewy, designer of space.
