Pish tosh, fish mush.

2019/12/14

     “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be cured against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.” -C.S. Lewis

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2019-12-13) 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, though the farther back in time you try to go, the less likely it is to work right, just like real life.

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:

Last week I saw this cartoon and I thought, it’s a lot like KZYX, except better for the workers in the cartoon because at KZYX the airpeople aren’t even being paid anything at all but a pat on the head, while the handful of people in the KZYX office are snarfling $300,000 a year out of the station into their own personal gloveboxes. And anyone who speaks critically of this, or of any other part of the operation of the NPR-colonized station, is kicked off the air and banned for life from doing a show there, because you can’t use the public airwaves if you won’t drink the cult’s kool-aid. They spill out hundreds of thousands of dollars a year of tax-derived Corporation for Public Broadcasting grant money for themselves and for all the canned crap from a thousand miles away; what are /local/ airpeople, chopped liver?

Planes, trains and automobiles. Modern vehicles don’t really do it for me the way these do, and I don’t think it’s just me.

Reindeer boobs. I vote yes. Except the raindeer man-boobs, which are creepy, and I know that makes me some kind of bigot, but so what.

Well, see, now, /there’s/ your problem. The drug for that is pretty pricey, but we can drill a hole and get some ice in there and get you out the door. Take a minute to decide.

Juanita and I saw this guy at the Sonoma County Fair a couple of years ago. A sea of empty seats. Bad time of day, late in the run of the fair, audience of about six people. He still brought the magic and gave it his all. A total professional.

All fashionable (or not) self mutilation looks like this to me. At least if it’s just makeup you can scrub it off. Though if you’re wearing the makeup to cover abuse bruises so the piece of shit who did it to you can get away with it, how is /that/ right? Anyway, don’t do anything like this; it’s crazy and makes me flinch.
