Today we all start over. Again.

2014/11/15

    “Being fit and throwing a fit are two very different things.”

Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-11-14) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

This show runs seven hours not including the Mel Brooks/Carl Reiner 2000 Year Old Man before the start. (Here’s the cartoon version of that.) Learn how to stop a military tank, in case that ever comes up as a need. Pat Robertson squinches his eyes shut and purifies you with the fire of Jeebus of any sexy things you might have done. Some inside information about the human semen the sodomites have incorporated into your latte, as well as about their insidious tight pants agenda. Wordsworth. Chomsky. Dave Eggers. The Forgotten Fish Memory Orchestra. Instead of Boston Blackie, an entire vividly close-miked Nichols and May album (the one with More Gauze). In short, the bloody works; and the recording, made in the broadcast booth, has smooth sound with none of the (since fixed) periodic transmitter dropouts that radio listeners experienced.

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

My favorite is the elephant’s toothpaste. No– the iodine clock. The super-absorbent polymer is also nice.

Mark sent the link to this. Don’t ask the guy in the store; ask people who have one: the plasma display is superior to the LCD/LED.

And Mark sent a link to this page of people’s mostly accidentally recorded earthquake sounds. They were playing with tape recorders and exactly the right time.

“Plato was also a tragic child star who recently died of a drug overdose. Purportedly, there was some kind of mysterious curse hanging over the entire cast and crew of ‘Different Strokes’ – a modern reference to Greek Tragedy. . .or, more specifically, Modern-Day Greek Archetypes. Was Plato actually Persephone? Think about it.”

Giant acoustic instrument incorporates mechanical reverb. At first he just messes aimlessly with the springs, but then he bows the vertical violin-like part. If you just want to hear that, skip ahead to 2:53.
