The hairy-knuckled angels of our better nature.

      “Rocks and logs can bite like dogs but words will never hurt me.” –Valentine, in MirrorMask

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2016-08-26) KNYO (and, three hours in, also KMEC) Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and enjoy.

A pretty fast, energetic show. I’m over the cold, and I was in Fort Bragg at the station for this one, so I could make as much noise as the material required to be made, rather more of a trombone than an alto recorder. A particularly interesting poetry section. The /real/ holy hand grenade. Devolution in brain size. Mothra as metaphor. Zoological bullying. Sex robot brothel future. Single-payer health care. The feminist vagenda. A particularly appealing approach to atheism. Further Koch Bros perfidy. A defense of the classic Disney villainix. The latest installment of Rob Schneider’s riveting /My Own Private Shock Corridor/. Etc.

At the beginning you’ll hear the very end of an Australian film for a rainy day in the high school gym, about various strategies for managing your monthly. There’s only about twenty seconds of that. I’m just telling you so you don’t think you got the wrong thing and turn it off. If you want to hear (and see) the whole film, here.

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

I don’t know how to think about this. It’s funny, but would it be as funny without the expression on the face of the guy on the left? And what /did/ he mean by saying, “That’s okay,” in the first place? Probably not /That’s okay/, right?
