Thorgellen 2018 People’s Temple Choir Special.


    “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:

Mystery thrift-store photos of Thanksgiving in the ’50s.

A massive archive of Golden Age comic books in the public domain. Millions of pages up for remixing. Dig in.

Disney princesses reimagined as cement mixers.

Jaggedy bin Moustachecat’s call to prayer.

Apparently the cat call to prayer is not unique. You might have to click the sound icon.

Orchestral zoo sound effects.

Further orchestral sound effects.

Here’s the whole amazing series:


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.)

A compilation of live Ry Cooder clips.

Workers /did/ build that.

Building 7. Poink.

The Pinto poink scene in /Top Secret/.

Spaceships are now older than airplanes were when we flew our first spaceships.

A magical ad for a department store.

When Black Friday comes I’ll be on that hill.

Art. (Auto-play slide show.)


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.

Oh, the Gustav gun was a mighty big big gun and a mighty big big gun was he.

The midcentury oooh face.

The Bureau, part four.

Victor Hugo’s author photos. Victor Hugo, hand on head.

Coney Island’s differently interesting, or otherly acceptable, or enhanced. There, that’s the word: enhanced.

Further minotauria. Scroll down to the lower videos for the full majesty of the experience.

Florida’s skull-collector ants.

Further /The Endless Fight/.

The vajazzled pigeon.

The vajazzled hamburger.

Epictetus, your relationship counselor.

That’ll put lead in your pencil.

I love a thing like this where the main difficulty is /how can he keep going without bursting out laughing/.

Let the savings wash over you. Tch, too late. Check again Black Friday, 2118 A.D.

So totally cool! Solid-state thrust. No moving parts.

A Soyuz rocket launch as seen from the ISS. Not CGI. Real footage, though sped up a bit. Watch for the lower stages falling.

Thunderbirds stuck laughing.

Harry Potter whatchamacallin’ ballin’ in New Ollins y’all. I know. I’ll stop. Sorry.


“At present, each ski weighs thirty pounds, but…” Not to mention the eighty-pound lawnmower motor on his back. For some reason this didn’t catch on.

Making a beautiful useful old thing a beautiful useful new thing again.

Aleksandr Misko impressively plays Pirates of the Caribbean theme by fucking a guitar in the mouth with a chopstick, at least to start out.

The mossy lava fields of Iceland.

Ah. There you guys are.


Holiday cards for your racist relatives.

Room of the giants.

Marvel fan edit.

Further Gunhild Carling.

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.

Waiting for Godot, the musical.

Klaus Nomi – Will They Nomi Now. He died right after this, on Hiroshima Day in 1983, of AIDS.

Ten minutes of fascinating wonders.

Stolen Fallen Madonna With the Big Boobies recovered unharmed.

Funky /Have a Cigar/.

Typographical animation: G-AAAH.

Outtakes from the famous Five Doctors episode.

An essay about the relevancy of cyberpunk.

And: Nice place yez got here. Be a shame if something were to… happen to it.
