Littering Outer Space Might Not Have Been The Best Idea, You Guys

Since humans started traveling to space, we’ve left a lot of stuff up there. Sometimes that’s good (communications satellites, the space station, ETC), but sometimes not so much (spent rocket parts, satellites that we’re not using anymore, random garbage, ETC). And just like here at home, all of that junk is becoming a problem. In fact it’s becoming such a problem that if just a couple of wrong things happen, modern life as we know it is no longer going to be modern life as we know it. Here’s an interesting, not at all concerning video that explains the situation in understandable terms.

Thankfully it ends with the news that science is aware of the issue and already working on ways to fix it, which will hopefully be met with a better reception than climate change has gotten when it comes time to actually start acting.

Jazzy Want A Firefighter!

Parrots and their way of imitating things always fascinates me. Well, here’s another one, and this one imitated the smoke alarm and brought firefighters to the home.

Damn, that parrot is good. Living with a bird who could do that would have confused the heck out of me, but the way he imitates the phone would have made me wonder if I was having auditory hallucinations or something. Then again, I guess I would know I had an imitating bird in my house but it would have frustrated the heck out of me.

I’m glad the firefighters were good about it.

Somebody Just Voted Himself Off The Christmas Card List

This looks like your standard, run-of-the-mill campaign ad, but then…

Holy shit, did not see that coming.

Yes, that really is six of Republican Congressman Paul Gosar’s nine siblings telling the good people of Arizona not to vote for their brother and to instead support his opponent, Democratic candidate David Brill. It didn’t work, but points for one hell of a try, my man. And good on all of those family members for having the courage to do that, even though it’s surely going to make special occasions awkward as hell until at least the end of time.

Five Minutes Of Hell At The Inflatable Run

I’ve never met KUSI TV meteorologist Dave Scott, but after watching the poor guy struggle through this live report from an inflatable toy festival/race of some sort I kind of feel the urge to track him down, give him a hug and tell him everything is going to be ok. Seriously, if someone has ever told you that it just wasn’t your day, this is what they meant.

Right from the start, literally everything goes wrong here.

He fucks up his opening question to such a degree that the people back at the studio don’t know what he’s talking about even though they’ve just thrown it to him, leading to the awkwardest awkward pause and confused back and forth you’ve ever seen.

He doesn’t do much better with the people standing around him, who either can’t figure out what sorts of fun they’re going to have today or aren’t really paying attention to him at all.

Speaking of not being able to figure things out, Scott doesn’t seem to quite understand what the point of all this is, even as an inflatable tube man thing named Mr. Wacky that he and the crowd summon with a magic chant tries to explain it to him.

“It’s like a 5 K only longer,” he wonders aloud, failing to grasp the concept of a mile long track that people can run around as many times as they’d like.

He then tops it off by asking if all of this means that everyone becomes an inflatable today, which seems to throw off Mr. Wacky momentarily before he answers the question with the obvious question ( “Does everyone want to be an inflatable today?”), and then tries to get everyone to do a dance.

The video ends there, before we get to see what in my head I imagine to be a broken Dave Scott, his mouth and a gun.

I haven’t seen any of this year’s news blooper compilations yet, but if the year end one is anything other than this on a loop, I’ll be shocked.

Once We Fix This Baby Thing, We’re Going To Tackle The Wetness Of Water

Things move so fast anymore that I missed this at the time, but there’s no way I’m passing it up even if it’s already ancient history.

nine months whaaaaa

Yes, he actually said this.

Yes, that is the President of the United States explaining in a speech that right now, all over the country, babies are being born in the ninth month of a pregnancy and that this needs to be changed because it’s just plain wrong.

It’s thought that he may have misspoken and meant to say “torn” as a reference to late-term abortions, but come on. Have you seen this guy? It wouldn’t surprise me for a moment if he legit had no idea that he said a stupid thing. I would be even more sad than this whole leadership situation has already made me, but not at all surprised.

Radio Waterloo, A Documentary About The Creation Of Community Radio Here And In Canada

I haven’t had a chance to watch this yet, but since I’ve seen it recommended in a couple of places that are generally pretty good about recommending these sorts of things and because let’s be honest, odds are it was going up anyway, enjoy this documentary on the history and struggles of community radio in Waterloo Region.

Radio Waterloo is the story about the advent of community radio in Canada as told by the people who struggled to create it. The story follows Radio Waterloo (later known as CKMS) and CKWR through the development stages in the 1960’s, until now, 2017. You will hear from DJs from the early days of Radio Waterloo provide details about how Radio Waterloo was established, others provide insights from the University of Waterloo referendum which left CKMS without funding, and then current DJs share how these events have led to the current format and state of the station. Join us as we re-live the painful dedication of local DJs who fought to keep the community voice heard on FM radio.

This documentary also includes performances by local indie and established bands who have been featured on CKMS, and proudly boasts an original soundtrack created by Canadian musicians specifically for this project. Some of the collaborators include:

Steve Bays (Hot Hot Heat, The Mounties), Brad Merritt (54-40), Ian Somers (Limblifter), Brad Weber (Caribou, Pick a Piper), and many more.

I’ve only ever listened to CKMS a handful of times because it’s damn near impossible to pull in anywhere I’ve ever lived so has unfortunately mostly been off my radar, but CKWR, with its significantly better reach, is a station I’ve listened to somewhat regularly since I was a kid thanks to the wide variety of programming it offers. Hopefully they’ll both be around for many years to come, even though the struggles continue. Real, honest to god local radio has always been important, but in this era of everything being consolidated, homogenized and voice-tracked to hell, we can’t afford to have our already limited choices limited even more.
