A Sears catalog of target-rich environments.

     “When you look for guidance, direction, mentorship, you always look toward institutions but it’s really yourself that is the final arbiter. And if you keep yourself as the final arbiter, you will be less susceptible to infection by cultural illusion. Now the problem with this is it makes you feel bad to not be infected by cultural illusion because it’s called alienation. But the reason we feel alienated is because the society is infantile, trivial and stupid. So the cost of sanity in this society is a certain level of alienation.” -Terrence McKenna

Here’s the recording* of last night’s (2017-10-06) 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:

Science has shown that until you’re about 25 years old your brain isn’t right yet. You get an idea of something to do and don’t think it through first because the different parts are still in flux and not properly connected yet.
