New and improved evidence of controlled demolition in the Pearl Harbor event.

2018/12/08

    “PEMDAS (Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally) stands for parentheses first, then exponents, multiplication, division, addition, and then subtraction. With two or more operations in a single expression, PEMDAS tells you what to calculate first, second, third and so on. Let’s try it on these examples… [Sigh.] Yes, Mister Kaplan, what is it now?”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2018-12-07) 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 lower yourself slowly into deep memory. Slowly, now, so the shock of the cold doesn’t stop your heart. Or just scream like a girl and jump in and get it over with; that’s the way I do it.

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:

Happy holidays to all 14,000 racistly kidnapped kids in our pop-up gulag of new Manzanars along the southern border.

How they make delicious-looking food for teevee and magazine ads, using tampons, super-glue, motor oil, cardboard, hairspray, dish soap, glass beads, copper wire, and, you know what? You can get everything you need for this in the Beverly’s craft store.

And the muscular strength that it gave to her jaw has lasted the rest of her life. (Or) It’s all fun and games until somebody loses an eye. If she lets go of that, where do think it’s going to go?

Music made from industrial noises.
https://boingboing.net/2018/12/05/music-made-from-industrial-noi.html

You know how in Inka-Dinka-Doo Jimmy Durante says, “Let me hear that trumpet,” and a piccolo plays and Durante says, “/That’s/ not a trumpet,” and a clarinet plays and Durante says, “/That’s/ not a trumpet,” and finally a tuba plays a tremendous blast and Durante goes, “/That’s/ a /ta-RUMP-et/!” Well, this is a ta-RAIN! As a commenter comments: “Streamlined and art deco as fuck.” What is the matter with people now, that we can’t have things like that.

The troubles.

Archeologists examine an ancient racist-stereotype polystyrene-foam head that weighs as much as a case of pop because there is actually a case of ancient pop inside. Props like this can be dropped on fleeing extras in an earthquake scene, and then later they can break them open and drink the pop, releasing the spirit of Shua-Magog to fog the film and lend authenticity.

Don La Fontaine, the /In A World/ man. That was his real, normal voice all his life, not just for work. There are recordings of him when he was ten years old and he already sounded like that.

A lovely old hammer restored. The handle re-cover method surprised me. And that’s genuine glue made from boiled horses’ hooves, so you know how, in case civilization collapses and you have to make yourself useful and the nearest hardware store that’s not a smoking crater is ten years in the past.

Old magazines full of lovely ads for products that were built to last. What can you buy now that will still be good as new after even only five years of hard use? I found an original ad for my /Korean-War-era/ flying-saucer-shaped GE vacuum cleaner that Kay Rudin passed on to me in 1985, that has an indestructible hemp bag that you just spill out into the trash when it’s full and then put back in, that will still be enthusiastically sucking out birdcages and corners and under the couch while the sun turns red and expands to boil the oceans into space. And if you want to blow dust out of a computer or blow-dry a sock or a glue project or, with a simple attachment, airbrush-paint a fender or a guitar or a sign stencil, you just pull the hose out and stick it in the other end. /Hoovering there I chased the shouting winds along, and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air./ Also, casual non-ironic racism and sexism.
