Ouch! O, foolish bee! (The Ballad of Traish LaRue.)

2017/07/15

     “Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money.” -Virginia Woolf

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2017-07-14) 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.

Scott and Alex and Zeke called, and T.J. and Ellen and Carl showed up, and even so I managed to read everything I brought  to read and also play an especially wonderful episode of Murder at Midnight (at about 3:30am). A few operator errors and erratic levels, distortion here and there, both sonic and factual, but nothing of a deal-breaker nature. Disturbing revelations. Titillating romantic polyhedra. Surprises, thrills, a soothing panoramic zoom and swoosh around and through a forest of information. It’s almost as if you were there.

And, 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:

The trailer for a new feature-length time-lapse movie called Awaken. Something like Koyaanisqatsi and its sequels, but rather about things going right instead of everything going wrong.

Brewer’s yeast plus jellyfish DNA make fluorescent beer. But I’ll bet it still tastes as disgusting as regular beer.

So cool! If I had some money, I’d be all like, /Shut up and take my money./ But I’d have to have just a ridiculous amount of money to say that, because this is 25,000 smackeroonies. I know, right? (That’s something like how the kids all talk now.)
