Compendium.

2021/05/22

     “Great holy armies shall be gathered and trained to fight all who embrace evil. In the name of the Gods ships shall be built to carry our warriors out amongst the stars, and we will spread Origin to all the unbelievers. The power of the Ori will be felt far and wide, and the wicked shall be vanquished. Hallowed are the Ori.”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2021-05-21) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show, ready to re-enjoy.

 

Thanks heaps to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost here’s a page with not only the above MOTA show but also other ones going back quite a way.

Besides all that, here’s a fresh batch of not-necessarily-radio-useful but worthwhile items that I set aside for you while gathering the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

I love John Oliver more than Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov loves Turkmenistani Akhal-Teke horses, but not in quite that creepy way. And there’s cake at the end, a magnificent cake, and the cake is not a lie.

Two comments: 1. Any weapon you haven’t mastered belongs to the enemy. 2. One slip or mistake or miscount in choreographed moves and everyone will regret the day for the rest of their lives, and the sport will be ruined by helmets and face screens and bulky body armor.

It’s like just before the /bumbada-bum bumbada-bum/ part, of the early-style Doctor Who theme, but it comes naturally out of the creature’s face. It knows it’s funny. It’s not a fart.
