Here’s the recording* of last night’s (2018-02-02) 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, from this other place, which you might like better because it offers an instant-play option and isn’t surrounded by confusing flashing ads.

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

Timber.

Remember last week, when the guy took a 17×17 Rubik’s cube apart and mixed up all the 1500+ parts? Well, he sorted all those parts and studied them and pieced it all back together. Really. Watch him do it.

Why it’s impossible to (perfectly) tune a piano.

Nope. Nope. NO. Don’t grab that! That’s gonna break off; don’t trust that! Ugh. Kind of hard to watch.

Rerun: Deaf synchronized Chinese dancers. Higher-quality video than the last time. You can see the points on all the finger-things.

“SURE I want to fight communism. But HOW?” By underwriting a show on KNYO, that’s how. Turn your lousy stinking money into /truth dollars for truth/.

Another animated history map, year by year, but of Europe and with populations of the various countries listed. All that patriotism and all that fighting and rapine and pillaging and dying for what’s right and because God is on your side against those funny-smelling people who have that nice field over there that your inbred hemophiliac boss back in the castle wants. Did you know that the ancient Hindu word for war is /a desire for more cows/?

Why cities exist.

I know she and her getaway-car-driver boyfriend are both thieves, but I still feel sorry for them. And what will they do now? Can they pay for a doctor? No, they already could not pay for that, and now their livelihood is gone because the woman broke her leg. At least they got the package, whatever it is. A juicer, maybe, or a two-pack of vacuum cleaner belts for an Oreck, or a car part or toner cartridge or jigsaw puzzle, or an LED wedding dress costume from Archie McPhee.

Further seemingly effortlessly dazzling real-time looping from Elise Trouw. (My favorite comment after it: “Dang, do you know how fortunate you are to have loop machines? All I had was a goat and a banjo with a few broken strings, and I could not teach him how to play, so I could just sing. He just chewed on it.”)

“This is why I despise the slogan America First. It’s roots are in the 1920s KKK and every time Donald Trump says it, he endorses white nationalism, racism and hatred.”
