The coat and the pants do all of the work.


   “When Bert [Lahr] appeared on set [in Cowardly Lion costume made out of a real slaughtered lion], it set Judy [Garland] off giggling and she couldn’t stop, probably because of the amphetamine pills the studio issued everyone, maybe only because she was a little girl and Bert was funny, and Victor [Fleming, director], also see amphetamine, ya know, savagely slaps her face and he bellows at her to cut it out. And that’s the magic of Hollywood.”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2019-08-30) KNYO and KMEC Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to re-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 a couple of years. And you can go to Links To Recorded Audio, see above, and hear older shows yet.

Besides all that, here are links to further worthwhile educational and/or sensational items that I set aside for you while gathering the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

And the vest gets all the gravy.


Fishing with fire. Shockingly beautiful though it’s greedy cheating. This works on people, too. Substitute your own analogy for the fire and for the cadre of hornswogglers and the thousands and thousands of doomed suckers.

Art of the after time.

Rerun: A little perspective. (30 min.) The text is a bit small. Fullscreen this.

Tilt-shift Manila.

Lazy Susan.

Quiet Village.


Imagine the action movie that would go into detail about the day that produced this photo. A film called /Nothing Much./

Like to wrench on bombs? The U.S. Navy has a job for you.,_from_Atlanta,_Ga.,_puts_a_switch_on_a_2,000_lbs_MK-84_general-purpose_bomb.jpg

This woman and her little helper and his hairspray cans win karaoke forever. There will be no karaoke henceforth, for what would be the point?

One second of every Looney Toons short. (17 min.)

They didn’t die.


Inside the Terror. Don’t miss the video.


“Featuring Duncan Renaldo as Jose.”

Total electric living.


Okay, this looks great. Wow. Breathe.

Textor TS700-UB. How we get bacon.

Here, girl. That’s a good girl. Come on, chop-chop.

Our stupid system, part 32.

Topographische und geologische Karten des Mondes.

The Lost Sheep. An orchestral composition by Adrian Munsey.

Things that go up.

About forward-swept wings.

This reminds me of an old saying: “Every tall building has a continuous waterfall of human shit inside.”

Fluid simulator. Reset the parameters. Mess with it with your pointing tool. Pretty.


Safe and sane fireworks. Use only under adult supervision. Light fuse, get away. Or whatever.

Rerun: The Apache Dance from /Charlie Chan in Paris/ (1935).



One of them looks just like Diane Keaton.

Tip for teachers.

Before Christina Hendricks became a famous actress ( /Firefly/,  /Madmen/), she made a living as a /hand model/. Remember the poster for the film /American Beauty/? It’s a hand pressing a rose against a woman’s belly. No-one remembers whose belly that was –some belly model; Hollywood is very specialized anymore– but that’s /Christina Hendricks’ hand/.

Gene Wilder pauses.

And that’s how you ride a bull.

Space-X Starhopper short test.


Doctor Zuess.


Black Samson.

Bob Dylan at 20. Before the peeved gravitas.

A song made of the dickheaded youtube comments this talented songwriter gets.

I like it how they don’t want to step on it. What do you suppose they think it is?

Watch a burly policeman festooned with weapons run away from a naked white man he suspect of murder, until the man gets tired of chasing the policeman around in the grass and goes off to strangle some old guy getting into a truck. Oh, so /that’s/ your clever plan.

Jessi Combs is dead. “Jessi Combs died on Tuesday, August 27th, while attempting to break her own land speed record on a dry lake bed in Oregon. Known as the fastest woman on four wheels, Combs was trying to hit 619 mph in a jet-engine-powered car of her own design when she fatally crashed. She was a race car driver, an intuitive automotive engineer, a crackerjack mechanic, and a teacher. Pretty and smart and happy and brave and accomplished, and thirty-six or thirty-nine years old, depending on who you ask.” It’s too bad. She wasn’t reckless. Things go wrong. I can’t watch this without crying; you try it.
