Ritual of Chüd.

2017/08/12

     “My point, once again, is not that those ancient people told literal stories and we are now smart enough to take them symbolically, but that they told them symbolically, and we are now dumb enough to take them literally.” -John Dominic Crossan

Here’s the recording* of last night’s (2017-08-11) 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.

*Technical problems meant that a great deal of this show was not even going out on the air on either KNYO or KMEC. Still, I persevered. The recording is complete, and it’s a pretty good show. Lots of local writing and valuable information.

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:

We all know what memories can bring, they bring dominoes and fire.

This cat had some grass in its beezer
Which made it a sad little sneezer.
To quiet the fuss
And mucus and pus
The man pulled it out with a tweezer.

Rocket themed products. (I especially like the coffee table.)

The chemical spellbinding and bedevilment of semen. “The Number 1 cause of death for females ages 15-59 worldwide is males. More specifically, women ages 15-59 die in this world primarily as a result of being fucked by males.”

The judgment of Janet. This reminds me of the last scene in Lars von Trier’s /Dogville/.

This is the first chapter in a proposed much longer project about a weapons program.

This is something like what the space marine woman in /Aliens/ (Alien 2) imagined they were after when she cocked her gun and flippantly dismissed the danger by saying, “It’s just another bug hunt.” It’s never just another bug hunt.

Can you hear the difference between a $62 violin and a $462,000 violin?

And the perfect flamingo desktop image. Cover the world. (Juanita has a certificate in exotic animal handling, and she told me once that, just in terms of behavior, you can consider a flamingo a goose.)
