A Zatoichi the Blind Swordsman Hannukah.

2017/12/16

     “Yes, thank you, Kozue, if you say Hannukah over and over a bunch of times it sounds like a washing machine. But it’s like that with a lot of words. With every word. You’ll find that out, and drum it to death, and get tired of that too, and the next thing, and the thing after that. And then eventually you’ll be old and your own little grandchild will kick your foot and startle you awake and tell you about Hannukah and washing machines, and you’ll nod and smile and tell her to go in the kitchen and show her mother, and that’s how it works. Go on.”

Here’s the recording* of last night’s (2017-12-15) KNYO and 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.  Though if the thought of a clean internet experience, free of intrusive ads, appeals to you I recommend free uBlock Origin. For Chrome. For Firefox. Or for Safari and Opera and so on. It just installs and works. And later on if there’s something you want to look at that’s being blocked, you can click it off and look. I used to use Bluhell Firewall in Firefox, but they aren’t compatible with each other anymore, and uBlock Origin works just as well if not better. Just don’t confuse it for uBlock, because uBlock Origin and uBlock are two different programs from two different companies of people. Like Greek Orthodox Christianity and the Roman kind and the Baptists (say BAB-tuss), like Kleenex and Pyrex, Korla Pandit and Pandit Ray, lightning and the lightning bug, they might be related, and they might even be interchangeable, but they’re not the same.

Anyway, here are links to a few not necessarily radio-useful but worthwhile enough items that I set aside for you while putting the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

Enrique Torres-Prat’s vision of Vampirella.

Rudolpho doesn’t owe you /squat/, you tyrannical prick. (Not you, reader. You’re not a tyrannical prick. It’s Santa.) (Or maybe you are. I don’t care. It takes all kinds.) (I just always identified with Rudolf because of my great honking hammer of a schnoz.) (And this just reminded me– I used to do a trick for the Whale School kids where I put two penlights up my nose and breathed in and out to make it pump and flash. Try that.)

A capella Star Wars music medley.
https://theawesomer.com/star-wars-capella-medley/458023/

This guy made a flying model Enterprise-D out of foam-core craft material (with running lights, and lighted deflector dish). He’s finished working and finally throws it into the air at three minutes in. It doesn’t fly very well, but it flies at all, and that’s impressive. And there are other things next to it in the queue that look promising: a flying Star Destroyer as big as a car, a S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier, and more.
