Traish LaRue and the low-down, dirty, rotten, cornswogglin’, very bad day.


     “He remembered how nice the kids at Camp Half-Blood had been to him after the war with Kronos. Great job, Nico! Thanks for bringing the armies of the Underworld to save us! Everybody smiled. They all invited him to sit at their table. After about a week his welcome wore thin. Campers would jump when he walked up behind them. He would emerge from the shadows at the campfire, startle somebody and see the discomfort in their eyes: Are you still here? Why are you here? It didn’t help that immediately after the war Annabeth and Percy had started dating…” -Rick Riordan

Here’s the recording* of last night’s (2017-09-01) 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:

Barnaby Dixon’s latest puppet.

Parade costumes.–16-06-57.jpg

Bulbous bouffant.

Pink and out of control.

How justice works.

How to be charming when talking about yourself.

Stone carver carving.

1968 Eric Clapton interview.

Street handpan musician.

Phil Tippett’s Mad God project.

Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz by John Stump, and some other sheet music he wrote, knowing it would be impossible ever to play.

Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz as written, played by computer.

Smooth Criminal on barrel organ. In a woodpile.

An admirable stab at playing FA&DM with only two hands. In a house where this level of mastery is not considered as interesting as whatever’s going on in the kitchen. These must be the Tenenbaums, or the Glass family. Some genius amazing people. What do you suppose the others all know how to do?

Maybe this is them a little later. “He doesn’t have enough hands. Let’s go help him out.”

The clear science.

Inside and outside.

Gyroscopic public transportation.

Nox Atacama.

Deadpool, the musical.

God-Man. Hmph.

Meet Sophia.

“You guys are insane. You wanta hit Featherstone’s joint?” “We don’t wanta hit Featherstone’s joint. We wanta hit all seven of his joints.”

Rerun: bad acting.

Remember in /Harry and Tonto/ where Harry said he traveled in Maine coon cats? Here are Maine coon cats. Beautiful creatures.

Before and after.

The walrus is doing a gang sign too, only it does it with its teeth. The whole walrus is being a giant forearm and the teeth are the fingers.

Leonardo available.

Okay, we’re just gonna put the plane down over there. There’s no problem, folks. Nothing to worry about. Just a precaution.

Cuoc thi mac trang phuc cho nguoi da khuat o Nhat Ban. I beg your pardon? Cuoc thi mac trang phuc cho nguoi da khuat o Nhat Ban. Oh! It’s right down the hall, just past the drinking fountain.

The figures of Chladni. They’re kind of like Rorschach Lissajous patterns.

A useful new electronic gizmo.

A mechanico-electrical organ.–sH0071ZDc

A more complicated musical instrument. It also has stepper motors in it, but they’re used in the opposite way: electricity pulse-spins them rather than the other way around.

The origin story of a brave and resourceful character and her helper robot in a video game. Brave. Resourceful.

Arty bollocks generator. (Look for Generate Some Bollocks button.)

Why did the kids put beans in their ears?

The punishment of luxury.

Same band, but Isotype.

Unendurable line.

Why not happy always.


Accelerated entropy.


Life without stuff.

Coming out as trans-whatever. Imagine having to have a separate bathroom for every one of these different kinds of people.

Disturbing myth art.

I know it’s unusual. But really this doesn’t look any weirder to me than any other kind of makeup job. I have always shuddered inside at seeing a girl who’s plucked or shaved off her eyebrows and then drawn them back on with a grease pen. This has gone past that, all the way around to sort of okay again.

Fernando Botero’s cat-related art.


Generic millennial ad. “We shall brb as well.”

Flooding elsewhere in the world, not just Texas. These lucky people have a /rhinoceros/ swimming in the street of /their/ drowned city.

And I admired Maria Bamford before she became widely known, before the teevee series. Did you know that she grew up in Berlin in the 1930s? She doesn’t need the wiggly eyebrow makeup; she can do that with just the muscles under her regular eyebrows.
