The good sense God gave a goose.

      “I cannot stress enough the importance of your security lanyard.”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2015-10-09) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

A Columbus Day* sale of just a huge mishmosh of everything under the sun. Doug McKenty called and talked about the current episode in the ongoing KZYX comic debacle of paranoid management. The poetry of Pushkin. Michael Hughes on Woody Guthrie. Exciting news from the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Oaky Joe Munsen in his own words. Todd Walton. Jim Bakker’s Dream. The Black Death. Blackie in wax…

And here are links to plenty more not necessarily radio-useful but interesting items that I happened upon while putting the latest show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right.

Defender of Edward Snowden notices that news anchor/interviewer person is rather reading questions from a script and not listening to him at all, so he starts talking about Edward Scissorhands instead and of course the interviewer doesn’t notice and carries on. Can this be real? Yes.

Apparently there’s a large subculture of kids who modify their video games to do purely interesting things, given the never perfect congruency between real life physics and game physics, and then they share these mods. Here’s just one.

As a little boy he saw a UFO (far away, overhead) and was inspired. “My art shows spiritual technology, something beautiful and beyond human imagination, that comes from another galaxy. So, in relative way, this is like the God.”
