ABOF: Always be on fire.

2020/01/11

     “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” –Didymos Judas Thomas

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2020-01-10) 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 awhile. 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:

We Three (My Echo, My Shadow and Me). Not the version by the Ink Spots used in Episode 6 of /Watchmen/ but the one recorded by The Ladybugs in their large echoey dorm bathroom, accompanying themselves on uke and tastefully brushed snare. Say that– see how nice that feels: “Tastefully brushed snare.”

A collection of words used in fan-fiction to describe genitals. My favorite: The gates of Versailles. And I just now got that, it’s in the sense of seeing all the way to France.

“/Maybe/ if we weren’t so focused on all these bad things, all these bad things wouldn’t still be going on. Did you ever consider that?” “Nope. Not one time.”

Oh, my God, a tan suit? A bike helmet, on a bike? No president has ever done anything worse.

A lounge-lizard swing version of Jonathan Coulton‘s /Still Alive/ (end-theme music for the game /Portal/, where the makers of /Rick and Morty/ got the portal gun from. Full horn section. Just great.
