White punks on dope.


     “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:

India as roller-coaster.


Pluto flyover constructed of data from the New Horizons probe.

Levitating bird.

Hummingbirds in slow motion.

Evelyn Hayes, Celery Queen.

There’s a long history of symbolic celery in pinup art. Here’s James Lileks’ paean to Art Frahm, master of this. (Click on the title image to enter.)

Useful information about how to survive a grenade. Hint: don’t be in a swimming pool with it.

Toy rocket engine burning in a fish tank in slow motion.

You can’t even.

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.

The world’s largest single firework.

Extreme scooting.


A long little doggy getting along.

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.

Seeing from underneath.

Seeing from up above.

It’s Slinky, it’s Slinky.

Eclipses explained right.


Enra: Japanese motion graphics dance group.

French jazz dance party. So happy and fun.

Wo ai ni, Grandpa.

/Again/ with the brachistochrone race-to-the-bottom thing?

Impossible bottles.

Idea generator.

Common mistakes guitarists make. (My favorite: flashy guitar flip without strap locks.)

“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.

Alex Jones’ loony rants turned into an indie folk song.

Had a kind of poetry to it, sir.

100 amateur evil laughs.

Professional evil laughs.

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.

Dream inequality.

Vintage (1960s) stripper portraits.

“With my poodles.”

Hello, tilt-shift Helsinki, most livable teensy city in the world.

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.

Architect’s model of Star Wars Land.

How much can you see at once?

One thing at a time.

Realistic car chase scene made of RC cars and a cardboard town.

Andreas Almstrom added sound to last week’s demo reel of AI learning locomotion. It’s way better this way.


Interesting music video.

Money made into tinkertoys by means of cutting slots in it.

Bone music. Western music smuggled into mid-20th-century USSR cut and pressed into used X-ray film.

The black glove.

Yes, that is exactly why everything is bad.

All the deaths in all of Game of Thrones, so far.

The singing Samoyeds.

And the way whales sleep.
