Thorgellen 2018 People’s Temple Choir Special.

2018/11/24

    “The mindless words you are repeating, we are the light of a beautiful world, magical thoughts are self-defeating, we are the light of a beautiful world.” -Gunnar Bob

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2018-11-23) KNYO and KMEC Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to enjoy. (Left-click for instant-play. Right-click to download.) And thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost here’s a page with the latest show and also other ones going back about a couple of years. And you can go to Links To Recorded Audio, see above, and rummage through threads of light in the loom of time and thereby contact Murph and set events in the proper order. Or not. Up to you.

Besides all that, here are links to a few maybe not radio-useful but worthwhile educational items that I set aside for you while gathering last night’s show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

A pika (PEEK-uh) is not pica ( PAI-kuh). Pica is a mental disease of compulsively eating things that are not food. A pika is a lagomorph. (He’s throwing dice along the wharf. In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king. So take this ring.)

Art. I saw the Golden Gate Tour toothpick sculpture in person at Sonoma County Fair a couple of years ago. It looks bigger in real life. It’s scarily fragile. You know how some fragile, delicate things have that quality of making you afraid that you might trip or involuntarily reach out and smash it, so you back up to control yourself? This is like that.

Cat doings at night. But what are they pulling down from the walls at about the 2 minute point? Is that wallpaper wads? Cotton balls?

Holly has a very hairy lower back for a second grader. Unless those are veins, in which case the same thing but veiny instead of hairy. Also, it’s too bad about the murder and paranoia and so on, but it’s probably not a bad idea for children to have /some/ practice quietly hiding from danger and/or work in case they ever need to if they survive to adulthood. You kids don’t know, but in my day we used to hide under our little desks from worldwide atomic annihilation. Similar concept.
