Magnetofunky No. 170. It's Sunday, September 6th, 2020.
Hey. Larry here. Well, I tried to hold out an extra day hoping to see any kind of break in the zeitgeist, but Labor Day is turning into just another limbo holiday, the latest super spreader event that will add another two to three months of pandemic stagnation to the US. Meanwhile, with no progress in the lab, this episode is mostly geared to picking out a few tunes from the pending pile to cut through the heat wave...

Ok, that was Drug Baby, a 2019 burner by the Sydney punk band C.O.F.F.I.N (Children of Finland Fighting in Norway), and speaking of which, this being the first of the month, I wanna get through producing the show before the holiday weekend wake and bake / loud playing of old gangster rap vs. Woodstock bands resumes...
This is a laid back (and often explicit - you bet your ass) weekly international podzine of extremely eclectic music and progressive politics, with a focus on energy independence for the 99%. My podpage is 1223studios.com/mfunky.h. The Twitter is @Magnetofunky.
[Grid Theory] - 03:52
In Grid Theory,
Ok, Grid Theory is mostly a place holder this week, cause the past two weeks were spent trying not to breathe in the smoke or overexert myself while waiting for my Soc. Security (I mean, still waiting) - no riding the bike to the park, no shuttling stuff to storage, no grinding on the stones, just a lot of YouTube watching.
Anyway, the channels I'm enjoying so far have been (in no order): Business Blaze, SciManDan, NonStampCollector, Lore Reloaded, Steve Shives' Trek Actually, Cinematic Excrements (definitely not Cinema Sins), Jessie Gender, and many others. I'm also slowly digesting Lovecraft Country as its too damn current to be nostalgic, but I couldn't make it through episode 1 of the scifi soap opera Away, while I'm enjoying Raised by Wolves and The Boys so far, and Star Trek Lower Decks is just fine - I mean, it's not Archer funny but it ain't supposed to be, and besides, if social media was around back in the day, the same haters would be pissing on the original Star Trek over Sulu and Uhurua---[bell]
Ok, more misc. limbo in a bit...
[Back To The Stage] - 05:45
Ok, Back to The Stage, continuing the set of tunes for a hard hot picnic. First up is RITUAL - Then Comes Silence, the quartet from Stockholm known as the Swedish captains of postpunk, from the Metropolis Records release Machine, then it's Aguanoche, by Mexican artist In Vitro, released on the Japanese netlabel Bump Foot.
Pushing straight through we have Obacht by German industrial/EBM artist Jurgen Engler of Die Krupps from the Metropolis Records album Vision 2020 Vision, and wrapping up with another re-imagined take from Seattle industrial darkwave group God Module's most recent album The Unsound. This one is Hindsight [IRIS REMIX]...

Geeknotes: Abolish The GOP...
Ok, instead of following the pundit crowd by lending significant condemnation and precious airtime to Pres. Shithole's latest totally-in-character outrage of calling active, disabled and dead members of the armed forces suckers and losers (and the Nazi Channel smearing their own reporter for actually doing her job backed up with receipts), or venting of spleen against the corp. Vichy media that with few exceptions is perfectly happy to both-sides the current race war masquerading as a GOP political campaign (where taking a knee against the slave patrol IS the same as spitting on the flag), I'll just throw out the notion that if, IF this country's Electoral College actually does decide to select Joe Biden, we should give serious consideration to treating the GOP like the Nazi Party after 1945 and abolishing it. If this gang of neo-aristocratic despots and treasonous cowards were actual citizens, P-Grabby's impeachment wouldn't have been a joke (but then, both parties would have to be replaced, being both sides of the same stagnant status quo).
Ok, enough of my own particular rant, I'd rather touch on my own departure of established physics that SciManDan might look as skeptically:
Physics says that terminal velocity of an object falling toward the ground on Earth (AKA 9.8 m/s2) ends when said object hits the ground and becomes zero, but seen from a different point of view, I think an object still experiences terminal velocity when it's at rest and we merely call that continuous attraction toward the center of the planet's mass gravity, and this notion actually helps refute flat earth theory, because a flat earth wouldn't have enough consistently balanced mass to overcome the huge centrifugal force affecting an object on a spinning disk, especially when you consider that the atmosphere itself has its own terminal velocity that wouldn't maintain integrity on a spinning disk, no matter how fast it and the solar system are flying up through space that doesn't have an 'up' to begin with. Yeah, counterintuitive, but only within your frame of reference...
Ok, for the duration, If you have promos, pluggers, gig info, an art opening, etc, send me an email and I may add it to my Twitter feed if possible. The address is email@example.com..
[Grid Practice] - 27:01
Ok, In Grid Practice,
The limbo continues. The biggest drama in the power lab is whether to try selling my big-ass oscilloscope through an alternative to Craigslist (yeah, I've been permanently banned from the platform), and no, not FB Marketplace cause I banned Z-Dog's ass myself, or try to get anywhere close to what I paid for it at the Berkeley shop, cause the ongoing lockdown has affected them too.
I'm window shopping the 1200W DC boost converter, and on the bug out bike project I'm just gonna give up on the camo tarps in favor of a couple green / brown heavy duty tarps I can buy locally, which will put me that much closer to actual overnight camping, I hope...
[One More Tune] - 28:26
Ok, for this week's One More Tune, we close out with a number by TREZ MACHINE, the excellent Bay Area Punkadelic Power Trio. This one fits right in with the season of police gang / domestic terror actions across the land. It's Violently Peaceful...

[Closing] - 32:12
Hey, this show is a 1223studios joint.
I'm on almost all the popular podcast platforms, the latest being Google Podcasts and iHeartRadio. Show notes are on the podpage. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you like the show, tell your friends, and, considering the utter lawless contempt coming from Pres. Shithole, every time he utters 'law and order' or 'the troops', the words should burn like acid past his putrid piehole. Nuff said...
Show themes "Rocket Power" & "Spy Glass" by NY musician and composer Kevin MacLeod. Some additional audio from freesound.org.
Next episode is set for whenever I have enough music or get fed up enough to spew my own opinions, but it will be this month.
I'm Larry, trying hard to stay chill at my garrett in the Mission, and this is Magnetofunky, from San Francisco, where we go through, not into, the darkness.
