The bottom line.

2016/06/11

      “The bottom line is, never impede urination or ejaculation by obstructing the urethra.” –Dr. Keith D. Newman

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2016-06-10) KNYO (and, three hours in, also KMEC) Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep.

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.

I’ve seen all the movies these awwww moments are from but for the one with Boo and the Toy Story one. This leads with the best : /The Iron Giant/.

Speaking of which, watch this surly cop lazily brain-damage a boy for asking why he was being arrested. (First he stops the boy’s heart with cruel and illegal compliance use of his taser, then he clips the limp boy’s hands behind his back, picks him up and drops him on his face on the concrete.)

“There will never be cities in space. Who would build them? And who would want to live like that?” Well, people and machines would. Like they built this one.

This is not a wolf– it’s three naked women. Likewise this frog and this chameleon. Wait, no, the frog is five naked women, and the chameleon is only two, but it’s video and it’s literally skin-crawlingly creepy.

I think we can all agree that wine is stupid. But the lead GIF is interesting, soothing. Imagine it continuously projected on the line of decorative trees of a roadside alcohol dispensary. (Recall the articles about how when you cover up the labels, or add food coloring, or switch bottles, not even the greatest wine experts in the world can reliably tell the difference between the various kinds.)

“Here we go. The staff is divided by the train of the burning machine building with sweat. No one will see your face. The children reach into the furnace, but the light is still slipping to the floor. The world is still embarrassed. The party is with your staff. My name is Benjamin.” (“The question for us is, Can a computer write a screenplay?” I’d say yes, yes it can.)

Dan Kozloff once asked me what comics I liked and I couldn’t really think of an especially worthy one –I like them all– but I should have said Maria Bamford. She’s not just funny, she’s more than that. Start here:
