2017/09/23

     “Dear Jesus I wrote to you before do you remember? Well I did what I promised but you did not send me the horse yet what about it?” -Lewis

Here’s the recording* of last night’s (2017-09-22) 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:

The end of the world. Again? Ugh. Okay, you kids know the drill: get the briquets and meet me in the bathroom. The good briquets, not the guest briquets. I’ll get the dog. Go. Go.

A charming promotion for black dogs. As if they need promotion. They promote themselves.

“A wonderful sense of shared obscene solidarity.” “Without such a tiny exchange of friendly obscenities you don’t get real contact between each other. It remains /cold/ respect.” He’s like this all the time. His nose really tickles him. Or rather something tickles his nose.

Billions of dollars in security theater to find out that the carpet hardly ever matches the drapes. I would have told them that for three months’ rent.

Rerun: Christ, what an asshole.

Compare something like this to a so-called artist throwing paint at the wall or paying men to bend a big piece of iron over and stick it in the ground or to cover a bank with a giant American flag made of underwear. This is better, being actual art.

Speaking of which, Shanghai t-shirts: “My mom says I’m special so fuck you.” “Sniffing glue won’t keep families together.” And so on.
