A KNYO Chinese cheesecake gift basket.

2017/12/02

     “Fall is the annual middle finger this country gives Native Americans.”

Here’s the recording* of last night’s (2017-12-01) 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.

Cynthia Frank of QED Press and Cypress House Press came in and read from her own and John Fremont’s work. Ellie Cooney called and read her /Teenage Wasteland/ story. Scott Peterson, Alex Bosworth, Ezekiel Krahlin all called. Even so, I read almost all of what I brought to read, and played another episode of Candy Matson, Girl Detective, so I didn’t get out of there until 5am, and then there’s the drive home, and the computer housekeeping I have to do when I get there. So that’s why this update is later than usual. Just to let you know. It’s a pretty good show. A fountain of information. Like those firehose fountains in front of a casino, but for your brain.

And on top of 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:

David Jones’ collection of writing and art, including napkin art, from the old Seagull Cellar Bar, and more.

Your amazing molecular machines. All seventy gazillion of them.

All of this weird Cthulhunian macaroni is a single mosquito’s foot. And there are literally 100 quadrillion mosquitoes in the world, each with six of these.

And the feet aren’t the part than injects you with diseases. That would be /this/ part, digging around in your flesh in search of a blood vessel to tap, like the so-called manager and office people of KZYX, for example, who suck $300,000 (!) out of the radio station for themselves every year and don’t pay the airpeople who do the actual work of radio, preparing and doing their shows all year long, all together, even a single red penny. But they /so/ appreciate their dedication.

The inflation calculator. Fill in the year and dollar numbers and press /calculate/.

If ancient wisdom is better than modern wisdom, then this cure for colds, that involves plugging electricity directly into your nose, is /years/ better than so-called biodynamic farming with its gluten-free magical cow-horn new-age spirit-trap moon-in-Sagittarius compost shrines. And in fact it turns out to be. Better.

Florida governor Rick Scott’s consultant is not fucking a mannequin with an ice penis. “Look, it’s not what it looks like!” he insists, as he thrusts his fists against the post, and still insists he sees the ghost.
