      “Mr. Ross is troubled by the fact that a man wouldn’t use a sledge hammer in the house, and thinks the scene had better be in the back yard with the doll placed on a large stone.” –Daise Terry

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2015-11-27) KNYO (and, after midnight, KMEC) Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

Stuart Cohen came by to play a few of his new songs. If you’re just only here for that part, then, here.

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

There are so many bicycles in Amsterdam that they can become confused and march lemming-like right into the water. This man’s job is to drive a special machine to get them out of the way of boats when they accumulate under there.

How to tell if you’ve been abducted by aliens.

How homeopathy, “energy work”, accupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, essential oil, color therapy, reflexology, feng shui, hypnosis, and so on, work. And why you still need a real doctor who has studied real medicine when something is really wrong with you or your child.

Also, the chief effect of taking supplement pills (vitamins, herbs, etc.) is to make your bodily waste more nutritious for the microbes living in your septic tank. (Plus, tens of thousands of people every year go to the hospital because they’ve poisoned themselves by taking so many vitamins that their bodies can’t just piss and shit away what they don’t need.)

Lovely animation, but it doesn’t count the state-sponsored terrorism of spending a trillion dollars to send armies and navies and air forces (including war drones) halfway around the world to do it on a huge scale for the benefit of arms manufacturers and war contracting corporations. It only counts the amateurs.

The way a rocket is supposed to land. And then they can check it out, fill it up with fuel and oxidizer, and launch it again. Finally.

The newspaper seems to think this art project is a failure. I think it’s genius.

The smoke and fire is from the brake failing– the friction. The article about this video includes: “No hard-hats or safety gear; I suspect these are Russians.”

And how the U.S. goes to war. Every single time.
