Protocols of the Thetans of Xenu.
“Love is like racing across the frozen tundra on a snowmobile which flips over, trapping you underneath. At night the ice-weasels come.”
Here’s the recording of last night’s (2015-01-23) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click. (Downloading is recommended when you’re offered the choice; that way you can easily skip around and avoid things that tax your attention span or that might be teaching you something you don’t want to learn.) This was my 880th weekly Memo of the Air show, my 111th for KNYO.
What you’ll hear at the beginning is the very tail end of Mary Roach’s TED talk: Ten Things You Didn’t Know About Orgasm. Further, you’ll hear Alex Bosworth’s story Camel Bucket, Richard Alcott squeezed through hot vacuum tubes, selections from the MCN Announce list, Russian hip-hop, classic overtures yodeled by Mary Schneider (Yodel Queen of Australia), John Sakowitz informs his fellow KZYX boardmembers of the latest developments in the case against their corrupt management, notice of already richer than God Senator Diane Feinstein’s better if not even richer half being poised to extract a further billion dollars for himself by the sale of America’s Congress-and-internet-broken post offices, tales of witch doctors Christian and otherwise, a new 5.5 billion year old thing in the sky, Tom Englehardt’s Tao of Washington, white berserk riots throughout history, how to recognize, and get free of, a bad relationship when you’re 17 and pregnant and you don’t speak the language, the fake engine rumble of a new car, Why We Die and How To Deal With It, and so on, not necessarily in that order. A veritable tinker toy castle of triboluminescent information.
Besides the 7.3-hour show, here are some links to striking but not necessarily radio-useful items that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:
3-D ballet of thousands of birds.
A fish for a dollar.
An American soldier’s undeveloped WW2 photographic film (31 rolls!) is discovered and carefully processed. Skip ahead to 5:45 if you just want to see the pictures and don’t particularly care about the difficulties involved in developing 70-plus-year-old film without wrecking it and losing all.
You know how it says on fireworks, “Use one at a time only. Safe and sane. Light fuse, get away.” Well, here is a jumpy festival where they don’t knuckle under to that pansified sane-ist nanny-state nonsense.
Australian firefighter’s helmet cam. A window into the job.
300 movies at once.
The Bad Lip Reading kids do football. “Disco disco. And the beat don’t die in bingo town.”
Game theory and the Talmud.
Koch Brothers Exposed, the 2014 Update. Full documentary, free.
Pretty French girl vomits up demons of death metal.
How do you like them. Apples.
Like everything else in Iceland, waterfalls are superlative. I think they used one of these in Prometheus.
Brilliant night shots of New York from a helicopter. Scroll down.
Mervin Gilbert sent me this link. Dancers interact with projected video.
56 cognitive biases that screw up everything we do. (You’ll have to right-arrow-click through them. They only show you one at a time.) (This is totally worth it.)
And this short, simple news article interests me because– why did they seize the clocks? Why are the clocks a crime? And what’s left in the case for them to continue to investigate? Also everyone’s name is hard to just read aloud without laughing. I don’t care if they think my name is funny. I think their names are funny. There’s nothing wrong with that.
