Kit and kaboodle. The whole nine yards.

2017/02/04

     “The more the world is focused on destroying itself, the less it notices an immortal psychopath in its midst.”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2017-02-03) KNYO (and, three hours in, also KMEC) Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and enjoy.

Or, thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost, you can get it this other way, which you might like better because it offers an instant-play option and isn’t surrounded by confusing flashing ads.

Besides all that, here are links to a few not necessarily radio-useful but otherwise worthwhile items that I set aside for you while putting the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

Decluttering.

A warning from the holocaust museum.

Notice that whether or not you think this would be a good place to stand depends on how cold it is in your house.

“Comfort, manoeuvreability [real spelling], and dashing speed are the words of prestige that crown the LADA.”

Rerun: a visualization of Fourier analysis.

…And with that fresh in our minds, the Fourier transform in one (color-coded) sentence.

The dimension store.

All the suffering and triumph and goofy moments and cruelty and tenderness and terrible secrets and smells and kinks and tax conundrae of all the people who ever lived, including your current massive headache, happened and happen on a speck two times ten to the 27th power smaller than the dot in the center of this picture.

Blazars! “The jets from blazars are unique because they point directly at us.” (It doesn’t make us special, it’s just that those are the one we can see. Because they’re pointed directly at us.)

A couple of the best fathers on earth.

(The officials are trying to interfere, and the father authoritatively waves them off.)

(They jump up after, to look at it, because it’s perfect.)

Dog with a Pearl Earring. This is what people who wear mascara want to look like. It’s an attractive and natural look for a dog, but it just repels when it’s people, because I can’t help but imagine them poking themselves so close to the eye to apply it, and imagining that makes me flinch. Also earrings (and nose rings and lip, tongue, nipple, eyebrow, etc. rings and studs and safety pins and squirrel skulls, and that sad teenage girl in the news last week who appeared at Emergency with an unfortunate fucking fat /pet snake/ hopelessly stuck in the disgusting hole she cut and stretched in her own ear).

Bad lip reading project. Football again. “I swallowed a penny. I swallowed a penny. Why a penny went that deep? Why, man, why.” “Ya know, I was at the mall, and I was blowin’ some spaceships, and I never will love no more.”

These people were at Woodstock. “If you remember the sixties, you weren’t there.”

Camera in bird feeder. I think the camera makes a slight sound just before it captures an image. The birds seem interested in it.
http://mymodernmet.com/mary-m-ca-bird-photo-booth/

Everyone has a camera on their own head anymore, so we can all watch their death –or near-death– from their point of view. It’s just like in Strange Days. Oh, it just occurred to me: people could use this for porn. Hmm.

Making a pair of glasses from scratch, the ancient way, out of sand and firewood. (With only a cat-toy laser and ruler and data from an optometrist’s measuring machine. And an electrically-fanned professional kiln, and graduated-grit grinding disks. And a chainsaw. And an electric table-saw, and a bandsaw, and a microwave oven, and a drill press, and a Dremel tool.) “If you look closely, you can see some places where light is /trying/ to get through. But I can’t really see anything with them.”

A firehose of red lava spews into the sea. And where are the protesters? Will no-one stand up and put his body on the line and stop this outrage?

Interesting materials, flowing processes and mechanical competency. And there are dozens more videos like this near it.

Massive, terrifying waves are washing over the jetty. One man drives out there anyway, requires risky, expensive helicopter rescue.
