Another live remote from Juanita’s apartment, in my pyjamas, and in my bedroom voice to avoid disturbing the neighbors. I understand some network dropouts occurred on the order of once an hour or so, triggering silence sensing, resulting in incongruous music from the covering automation stepping in for a few seconds here and there on the web stream and on the over-the-air signal. It’s not a huge deal, but Bob and Ken are working on solving it for next time, and for others, not just for me, and I appreciate it.
Everyone’s invited to Uncle Rusty’s retirement-from-radio bash at the KNYO storefront, 325 N. Franklin, Fort Bragg (CA) tomorrow (Sunday, 2015-03-29, 2pm and forward). Russ has been at KNYO since before the beginning. I’m going, and I hope I see yez all there.
Meanwhile, here are links to some not necessarily radio-useful but interesting items that I happened upon while putting my show together, that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right.
As creepy music videos go, this isn’t a 10 out of 10 for creepiness but it’s plenty creepy. What gets me is a particular recurring dance move –a male dancer does it and then the singer does it a little later– of twisting a knee out to one side and falling, leg bent all wrong, on the back and back of the head. I just /bark/ in fear when it happens.
Determination and pluck. Also moxie.
Sy Stokes’ poem about his mother.
Pictures of humans.
Interview(s) with Buckminster Fuller. (I saw him once, when he was a very old man and his grandson propped him up on the stage at the Luther Burbank Center and he answered questions from the crowd. If anyone deserves to have a carbon molecule named after him, it’s Buckminster Fuller.
An invitation to attend collage.
Sail to Siberia from Pakistan in a straight line.
The spaghetti conundrum at 120,000 frames per second. It breaks new ground in slow-motion spaghetti breaking.

The computed tomography of animals.
Make your own spa lady cheese ball.
OK Go’s ad for a Chinese furniture store.
Hot pneumatic tube action. “Helen Soros works it.” Yeah, baby, send me that invoice.

How to get to the ISS. I didn’t know the term Hohmann Transfer Orbit and now I do.
Found film of Seattle and then an air trip, 1955. Silent.
The Art of Embalming (1705).
Haters gonna hate.
A moderately disturbing exorcism on a safety mat. In Italian, without subtitles.
Capybara in bath. With baby ducks. Are you sad? Lonely? Is anything even slightly wrong in your world? This will solve that. You’re welcome.
