“All the world will be your enemy, Prince With A Thousand Enemies. And whenever they catch you they will kill you. But first, they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, Prince With a Swift Warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed.” –Frith
Scott Peterson called at 9:30 (half an hour into the show) and we talked for an hour about the glaring financial chicanery involved in Mendocino County’s nonprofit corporations in general and the ones that run the Coast Hospital and KZYX in specific, who seem particularly prone to roll over under the leadership of perpetrators of what some might call obfuscatory ethical jiggery-pokery. If that’s all you’re interested in, because you’re a freak for that sort of thing, click here instead. Obfuscatory ethical jiggery-pokery– it’s so fun to say. Try it. Yes, now. If not now, when? If not you who?
And here are links to a few not necessarily radio-useful but really worthwhile items that I happened upon while putting the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right.
The infamous industrial safety film /Will You Be Here Tomorrow?/
A very short film with a fall in it, but a fall into the sky. And Slinky-brand spring toys.
Another reason why, even if elections are not rigged from the get-go (which half of all Americans polled say they are), voting might not do you any good anyway because of a curious glitch in collective reasoning.
John Oliver speaks about Republican-values Republicans.
Fourier transforms explained so that even /I/ can understand it. Now that I do, of course, I retroactively always understood it, and people who didn’t were all idiots.
Fourier toy! Play with this!
New way of getting five-times-higher-rez pictures of Mars’ surface by successively integrating camera orbit views. Every time the camera flies over, the picture gets sharper.
Kung fu motion visualization.
As well as traces of cocaine, there are as many as three thousand different /kinds/ of germs on every piece of money. Also: if you feed a timid mouse a brave mouse’s shit in pills, it becomes a braver mouse (and tries to bite the scientist when he goes to feed it more shit pills).
How the whole world runs on looting the Congo.
A journalist chronicles his own descent into Alzheimer’s.
Saints of science and reason. Including everyone’s favorite: Nikola Tesla.
Everyday objects amplified into numinous unrecognizability.
Some kind of porn, but what kind exactly would you call it? (My eye is drawn to the tips of the claws. It can’t possibly play the instrument; it must be about rip the strings off, that’s all. And the woman like that. Very much.)
Shake it, B. Yeah, that’s the way.
River on fire. (Sing to the tune of /Ribbon of Steel/.) Odd and impressive, but keep in mind how easy and cheap it would be to fake this for propaganda effect by opening two or three small flammable gas cannisters, weighting them and tossing them in. Also, if it’s not a trick, and if in fact they are fracking nearby, they doing so because there’s a lot of flammable gas in the ground there, and lighting it on fire as it escapes might have worked regardless of the fracking, the same way people used to drill for oil where they saw it naturally seeping up through the ground anyway. I don’t know.
Further NASA high-rez solar flare videos.
So /not/ flat, then, but like a re-cap tire press, and with angels. Got it.
A few shots from space. And there’s a link to see more.
Kind of a drugged train trip. Interesting.
House and garden train set. With cat and, later, dog.
Watch a man mess with an old modular analog synthesizer. This is the way it used to be done.
“We’ll demolish him with our ten-percent-less-despised advantage!”
The California KKK’s choice…
…but not the Grand Imperial Wizard’s choice.
Blind taste test with a real blind person.
Frightening chemical ingredients of an egg.
Kylo Ren outtakes.
I loved the film /Me and You and Everyone We Know/. This is only one of the reasons. “You are crazy and you are making me hot.” Later on, when the woman meets the child in the park and discovers she’s been writing back and forth with, you know, a child, her reaction is so calm and sweet. I hope I’m not ruining this for you; I’d really like you to get and see the whole movie. Miranda July is a genius.
“The science just isn’t in yet.”
“When I hear the shells and the bombs I head straight toward them.”
Falls like a brick, eh?
Moving pictures from 1864. /1864!/
And Nilla Pizzi. What a lovely voice.
