A live, improvised sound collage experiment, going back 23 years, weaving mesmerizing new soundscapes from found and collected materials right in the present moment.
Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. (Visit homepage.)

Too much fun-size candy, Kenzo?
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:05pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:06pm kat330:

I like the "fun size" of most anything.
Avatar    Wed. 10/30/13 2:10pm listener james from westwood:

i can't be the only one who has bought candy for leftover potential as much as for kid appeal, if not more.

...here's a small handful of chords that mean an awful lot right now...
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:11pm kat330:

Cowboy Junkies....ahmagahd....

We're having two nights locally for trick or treating, so I'm hopeful we'll have no leftovers this year.

Is it ok?

i first watched "brazil" on a videotape my parents recorded from hbo, while i was home w/ the flu. the tape cut off 4 minutes from the end. maddening.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:30pm kat330:

Our last movies at home: The Conjuring, Salem's Lot (uncut) and Fragile. Not a serious scare in any. :,

Kenzo, you still sound ill. Hope nothing more than allergies.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:31pm Bliss:

If you donate, you may get WFMU food stickers, like I did.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:33pm kat330:

Say, give me a little elbow room.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:44pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

do i sound better now, kat? i went for a checkup
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:44pm kat330:

I love my computer. Computers are 100% responsible for how my life unfolded.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:44pm Bliss:

My uncle's 1975ish cassette deck had a square light source right behind the tape window of the cassette, so you could look into the deck and easily see where the tape was and how fast it was moving.
Of course, there was a counter as well.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:44pm kat330:

You still sound a bit stopped up. But if the doc gave you a thumbs-up, that's all that matters!
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:46pm Bliss:

His cassette deck had wood siding.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

ok, i'm in the waiting room now for my followup visit
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:48pm kat330:

@Bliss: Is that a serious Bliss or George Harrison?

I remember 78 RPM vinyl. The walls of WSLM were line with 'em.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:49pm Bliss:

The avatar?

Yes, your closeup.

I love the broadcasting of telephone ringing sounds: it has the two-fold effect of enabling me to feel popular and missing any calls that I might actually receive.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:53pm kat330:

Anyone else get the email going around that contained Russell Brand's tract about politics?
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:54pm Bliss:

I searched and found it on my own.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:55pm Timeshift Droll:

Why are your callers so confused by the delay? Are you fluxing the timeshifter live?

Are the listeners who are not one your list before on your list now? HOLY SHIT! You *DID* mention my name on your list at 1:18, even though I am timeshifting by nearly a week. You amaze me, sir.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:58pm kat330:

Ahh. And thus ends the anagram portion of our program.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 2:59pm Bliss:

Saw a link in an article, possibly.
No big lengthy search.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:00pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

but then where do you get your nudes
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:01pm kat330:

I've a friend who serves as my own news compendium. Saves the fingers. And any inadvertent running into nudes.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:03pm kat330:

With a stuffy nose, I suppose "news" would be "nudes."
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:08pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

machines never surprise to fail
Avatar    Wed. 10/30/13 3:15pm listener james from westwood:

hah, still have this album somewhere on vinyl. i know i still have the CAR BOMB bumper sticker that came with it; alas, i stuck it on an ammo box back in college, so i can never leave the house with it any more.

James, could HST be a role model of yours? ;)

Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:26pm kat330:

At the risk of continuing to talk to myself, anyone else wonder if James Taylor started the nat'l anthem with "America the Beautiful" on purpose?
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:27pm Bliss:

Not up on that.
Last I heard he was singing Handy Man.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

your reply is eagerly awaited
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:27pm northguineahills:

Dig the Negativland bits...
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:28pm kat330:

I didn't see it in real time, but I saw it replayed ad nauseum on the nudes, I mean news.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:29pm Bliss:

Not having TV must be better than I thought.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:32pm kat330:

Well, my radio to tv ratio is still far and away tilted to the former. I was radio-active in the womb, quite literally.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:33pm Bliss:

I see.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:33pm kat330:

I hear ya.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:37pm kat330:

So nice to have a name that would be seen in constant crossword circulation, like Elam or Alda...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/30/13 3:39pm cklequ:

@Kat: or Oona?
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:42pm kat330:

Oh, yes, that's a popular one. Can't think of a better character face than Jack Elam's. [Kenzo, your show forces a S.O.C. style of commenting from me.]

Hello to my Radio Flyer! And my Chatty Cathy!

Kenzo, do you do the collages for the Best Show, by chance?
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:49pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

john: Not that I know of!
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:49pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

But I do them at the same time as The Best Show (every other Tuesday night)
  Wed. 10/30/13 3:52pm john:

Last night's Lou Reed sound collage was just lovely..thought it was your handiwork. Oh, wait...here we go....
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:54pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

would've been funny if I'd done it last night as originally planned (today was gonna be yesterday...hard to explain...)
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:54pm kat330:

Yes, this section works especially well. Happy Hallowe'en and e'en's eve, too to y'all! Kiitos and kauniita unia, Kenzo!
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:55pm Bliss:

Early Thanks, Kenzo.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:56pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Any requests for an end time?
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:56pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I don't know if I'm quite done.
Avatar Wed. 10/30/13 3:57pm kat330:

Keep going!

I forgot to say "hello" to "my broker" and "my driver!"
Avatar Sun. 11/3/13 12:07pm Droll:

I hope one of the new features cross references player-time with comment-time. I noticed I'm less interested in reading archived comments when I know nobody is there to respond if I joined in. If someone types on an archive, and nobody is there to hear it, does it make a comment? Maybe that's one of the new features? I finished listening to the show yesterday, but am posting all my comments together now. There are dependencies, but the exact timing is indeterminate.

Hey! How did I comment on a show I haven't heard yet? Thankfully nobody responded because I wasn't there. Especially good luck I didn't comment on the computer related samples. I wonder how many times Hollywood tried (and failed) to remake War Games? Seems overdue. Shall we play a game?
Black Jack
Gin Rummy
Fighter Combat
Guerrilla Engagement
Desert Warfare
Air-To-Ground Actions
Theaterwide tactical warface
Theaterwide Biotoxic and Chemical Warfare
Global Thermonuclear War

Timezones was my gateway Negativland song. This was a formative record for me, I tried to emulate this aesthetic in my Tullis & Clark stuff. To me, Timezones is timeless (no pun intended), it holds up so well.

It's an odd term, but a person who breaks things is a "broker", and hello (goodbye) to you too. Happy Standard Time!
Avatar Mon. 11/4/13 11:16am Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Droll, I've been wanting to do that for a long, long time. And my concept for how to make it happen is quite exciting.
Hello to my idea guy and my housekeeper, and "thanks to my whole team!"

P.S. I'm pretty sure Hollywood is right now or has just recently made an actual remake of War Games. Your sad wish has come true. I think the whole cast just stays home and texts each other.

The Negativland record was a request from a listener, oh, two weeks ago? In a different timeslot than this one, no less.
