(Note: MediaFire seems to have recognized the theme music at the beginning as Happy Feet recorded by the Paul Whiteman Orchestra in 1930, which is correct, but then it decided –I dunno, maybe for mistaken robot copyright reasons– to block the download of the show for at least some of my listeners, who wrote to tell me about this. I chopped off the pre-intro and replaced the whole file and link. Try it now.)
Yet another live remote from Juanita’s apartment, in my lucky plaid pyjamas. I read a new Alex Bosworth story that explains all the others he ever wrote, and a true-life horror story about traveling to the U.S. by tunnel and a bad doctor who can catch you and cut you up if you don’t watch out, and a letter to The South by a brilliant black doctoral candidate, and a reminder of Israel’s open-secret atomic arsenal, and a hundred and fourteen other things, including a great deal of valuable information that might save your life one day, you never know.
And here are links to some not necessarily radio-useful but interesting items that I happened upon while putting the show together, that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right.
Models within models.
But that’s only the limit for HO layouts. The Matryoshka limit for actual Matryoshkas is a much higher number.

A short video about the Antikythera astronomical computer, made to promote a modern company’s recreation of it as a wristwatch!
How to make delicious /gluten-free gluten balls/.
Gee, Officer Friendly.
“Fuck your breath!” said the officer. (Not the one who shot the man, but the one kneeling on his head.) (The officer who shot the restrained man in the back was an insurance executive who paid to ride along on an arrest. His lawyer now says the man he shot, the man with two cops on top of him, “brought the fight to him.”)
Ask your doctor.

So it’s an ad for a kind of car. So what. It’s wonderful. He can see it from space.
Record stick bomb.
3-D sushi roller-coaster video. This kind of works as a cross-your-eyes-and-focus-on-the-resulting-middle-image effect.
Chauvet cave paintings from 26,000 years ago.
Cutaways of the future city-hives.
Everyone’s upstairs neighbors.
An interesting video effect applied to seagulls flying past the Pt. Arena lighthouse. Also, notice that the URL ends in KFC.
