White punks on dope.

2017/07/22

     “Oy! A cat made of lead cannot fly!”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2017-07-21) 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.

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:

Spectacular result of car crash into power pole with the lines left live. This is immensely dangerous. Everybody in the video seems to feel safe staying back just a little bit, but all the affected overhead lines are ready to come down. Nobody is safe.

From Georgia Tech, a new needlessly complicated kind of steps that they say is “easier to use” than the old-as-dirt kind, but either way, up or down, you’d forget it was the new kind and step on it and trip and hit your head on the floor and wrench your back so, if that’s what they were shooting for, then great.

“But because the cameras are programmed to capture the 30 seconds prior to activation, the officer’s actions before returning from the alley were recorded.” The officer will be more careful and count to 30 next time.

Alan Tudyk in Firefly: “Mine is an evil laugh. Now DIE!” If you start at the beginning (“Yes, yes, this is a fertile land and we will thrive…”), 20 million Firefly fans can finish it for you. Try it in a room full of people and see.

A thrilling Hondacar ad. I still call them Hondacars, anyway. And I pronounce Civic /chee-VEECH/, the way they used to do in the Old Country back east, just like downtown.

Artist couple’s post-apocalyptic dioramas. “Cleaner than the real living room, sad to say.” Stick with this to the end; it’s lovely, though I don’t fully understand why one of them takes all the credit and the other one, whose work is essential to the project, is fine with that.
