Welcome to night fail Well, we have a special surprise for you all today listeners a holiday broadcast, unlike any we ve done before its power. Positively out of this world, I say
That's because it was recorded in outer space. Some of you might know. Radio Jupiter who lives near grove park She landed in our town earlier this year and has made herself a welcome and friendly presence. She explore And she's just happy to be a human amongst humans. After so many years alone in the cosmos, a wanderer against her will die. that lonely sojourn through the universe. She celebrated many holiday seasons on her own And she has agreed to share the tapes of those celebrations with us all as a reminder that, however, far flung the human spirit, Still remains so beautifully, fragile human here It is the first of those tapes.
Hello, can anyone hear me well I can hear me and I'm anyone. If there is one thing that can be said about me, it's that I'm anyone at all. this is radio jupiter and it's that time of year again least. I'm pretending it is. Every measure of time is attached to a solar system. I don't exist in any more what does a year mean without the earth, without the sun. How would you describe it to someone who only knows the vacuum of space. No matter how, as a terek our mathematics, they are hopeless, They talk tile,
Build the pause of apes scratching, The rock they call home. Nevertheless, I can Pretend to count time. I can pretend that a year has passed and pretend that time moves only forward that it now curves or bends or loops. I can pretend a lot of things. I have a virus, good imagination,. So it is that chapter of the year again, an humans respond to the cold outside by turning to the warmth of each other. This is the season of huddling. We call it other things right Grand stories to justify.
Ultimately, what we seek is touch and the hot breath. of another person on the side of our face is a holiday of nerves, seeking nerves, a holiday of sensation. it is huddling that we seek. And I am alone, in space. It is always cold heat, comes from movement. And nothing in this vacuum moves but me because nothing exists to move. But me. I have no one to huddle with. That is always a problem.
it is most acute when I imagine that it is this time of year. Sat light without reference. That's me. Orbiting and orbiting, but without centre, so ok, I will have to be my own centre, my orbit we'll be around myself. I will huddle with me. It is not enough. but I will make it enough. More of this holiday cheer soon, but first a word From our sponsors.
today show is brought to you by the tourism board of mention again management. From the prestige shores of lake mooch, iran to thee forested shores of lake huron to the under rated shores of lake erie, we are the premier tourism destination in the upper midwest not come. chicago in parts of wisconsin, had minnesota Come enjoy the college town, vibes of ann arbor, the raw natural beauty of the upper peninsula and the I can roll energy of data. pure mitchell, Luna see what all the fuss is about. No wait. Wait. Wait, wait, wait! I'm sorry listeners! This seems to be some kind of think pulled on me by the department making us sponsor message for a fake place. We, hold ourselves to higher standards and we'll be having some stern words with them about this joke
Have a look now at stock tips. There are many ways to be successful. At stocks, for instance, you can be lucky, for you can chew. Those are the two ways luck, Difficult not impossible, but it does require some spells
I have to wear a small bag around your neck, stuffed with thistle and rosemary and burned the one thing in your life most precious to you and even then half the time. You just end up with your sourdough turning out perfect or getting word all into which, if you think about it, is actually much more impressive than getting in in one. You will say to everyone, you know, even though they extremely do not care. What I'm saying is it's hard to aim luck, so your best bet is to cheat. Fortunately, there are a ton of ways to cheat. For instance, you can do some corporate espionage find out information before it hits the open market and then invest accordingly or you can manipulate the markets causing untold suffering and wiping out the entire economy for the sake of buying your third house. If history tells us anything- and I hope it doesn't- you won't even get punished now, the absolute best way to cheat and doctors hate. This one weird trick is to join congress because there is no law against actively investing, while in congress, despite the fact that you will be constantly told secret information that will radically affect the markets, and you could just make a ton of money on that info without any consequences, because who's going to pass a law against that you don't make me laugh, please don't make me laugh, it hurts so terribly. When I laugh out how oh man I miss laughing, I miss it so much. This has been stuck tips.
Let's get the next radio Jupiter holiday tape going. These are a festive. Another holiday appear in the appear beyond the beyond weather. The minutes of the human mind meet the limitless deaths of space. I have come to turn With my terms, I think anything is tolerable. If you choose to tolerate it, or I am choosing to believe that bree breath on this space ship is one I have made before. I am a cycle. It all goes through me. I and my own ecosystem. I gave myself at present yesterday. It was a surprise
I took some paper from the desk and I grab something at random from the storage area with my eyes closed and then wrapped it with the paper. I still closed, so don't know. What's inside other. The clue of what my hands felt, but I did my s, not to think about it. Much, let's see. I didn't ok job at wrapping, given that I looking at all Kind of stabler shaped. When I shake it, it makes a little clinking sound clink link twinkling The festive in its own way, let's open it aids, Not a state for its sculpture, done in a modern style.
Of a man, weeping. His torso is twisted and his face is buried in his hands. I have never seen the sculpture before. How did it get in my storage area who well what a surprise. not a nice surprise, exactly. after eons. Any surprise is nice in its own way staff. She makes me upset, which is nice, it's nice, to feel anything. I'm going to put it by my bed, so I can. Yet when I wake up, maybe I'll be startled, can. Imagine what a fun change of pace that would be
before we hear more from radio jupiter, time to hear more from radio cecil, which is a cool new nickname. I just gave myself. Feel free to call me radio cecil, if you run into me at the ralph sore in darkness, stretch deep in the cave system they recently found in the sand, wastes. I think we have time for a quick, horoscopes aquarius, no aries. Yes,. Cancer, the s capricorn, maybe gemini, absolutely not leo ok sure labour, a deal pisces yes. sagittarius yup Scorpio.

is a good day for business decisions, and this has been horoscopes. And now a public service announcement you know that core was abandoned on mere cat, lame the what but the worst it out passenger door in the trunk that is half open sort of inviting you to look inside. To see what was left alone with the car, where a representative from the federal government would like to make clear that you do not see that car, You have never seen that car. If you are under the false impression that you are seeing that card, that you are having some sort of episode the best, To do with having some sort of episode is too. simply stop looking at the thing that you were not seeing there is.
A car abandoned on mere cat lame. The government representative explained there may not even be a mere cat, lame help the rep. sensitive said, leaning on the wall behind the ice cream shop chewing on a toothpick. The question of whether you exist is still open the representative narrowed their eyes and said: don't make us Does that question I dont know what car they are talking about, and neither do you. No one knows anything. This is in a public service announcement? I hope you feel better informed, but it boring radio stuff. Let's get at cheery holiday mood going. I lost the statue, I dont know how. This is a sealed environment. I think I'm saying nothing
Goes out but it's gone well. It really was very upsetting. Perhaps it is better that it leaves me, so another year passed, I think I've lost track of even the cat. dane, and so I just decided as the season when my gut tells me so I dont have a guest to my birthday. So I celebrate that whenever it feels like my birthday, I have aged so much. There were months swear it felt like my birthday every day, I must have gone through a hundred years, Since the last holiday, it's all arbitrary.
I'm a thousand years old. I'm new born. this is a radio jupiter, and I am beyond time and space was the statues stolen. Was near someone here to steal it, I would like to meet someone anyone, Even if they are a thief may They have their reasons like this statue was upsetting.
They enjoy being upset. Sometimes I enjoy being upset. It makes me feel like I have a goal. You know speaking of goals, I'm thinking it's time to make a change to make a plan to take action. to make the hard choices that tough decisions. This is the season of taking stock of looking back of peering forward, and this isn't working. This here life as I'm living, it isn't working. next holiday will be different. I can promise you that.
Whoever you are, I hope you, like the statue. everywhere, we humans go, we Bring our world with us. There is no empty. That is deep enough to swallow our life completely when the last of us huddle in it Dying world one of will tell a story. And another of us would laugh and now the weather.
