I saw a poster from far away, It pulled my attention to it, though I could not tell what it was about. I rode my bike over there to see it. It was a Tori Amos poster. I'd never heard of her. Bought the album with Cornflake girl on it. Amazed at first listen.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:09pm mossy lightouse:

Hello!! I am already quite astonished! Music, and sound overall, still expand beyond familiarity and explanation for how they become what and how they are!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I was a concert photographer. Her arrangement was that the photographers would show up before the show to a special room where she writhed around at a piano silently for 5 minutes. So, yes, image conscious person.

A guy I know did a series taking picture of performers before and after shows. If they looked the same, something was wrong

when Jerry passed away, I watched both Hardly Working and Slapstick of Another Kind, more or less at the same time.

Carmichael, very perceptive. Last week I played an actual last-ever (from 2005). It was really the end.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:18pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Primer, amazing $7000 DIY movie
Avatar    Wed. 8/30/17 5:19pm Rich in Washington:

The makers of Primer also made the amazing Upstream Color.
Avatar    Wed. 8/30/17 5:20pm Rich in Washington:

I need to see Primer again. I enjoyed it, but it made my head hurt.

Huh huh. He said "Irwin's thingy".
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:20pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Upstream Color, amazing amazing. After it was over I just sat in the dark room for two hours thinking and feeling about it.

This is lovely, Kenzo.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'm going to try to start a conversation about each sample today. Blade Runner! I'm seeing a 4k restoration in a theater tomorrow!
Avatar    Wed. 8/30/17 5:21pm Rich in Washington:

I came into the middle of Upstream - my wife was already watching it - so she wanted to watch it over with me. It was like a loop. I think I need to see that one again too.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Jerry Lewis! Umm yeah he's gone. His self-direction skills were impressive.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:22pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Stone Roses, umm that was a really fun documentary even if they can't get their aspect ratios straight
Avatar    Wed. 8/30/17 5:22pm Rich in Washington:

I am hoping it plays in my town. I have only seen Blade Runner in the theater once, the Final Cut run.

But the Microsoft loop, that's from the Regurgitation show from around 2002, borrowed a laptop and used the built-in sounds and maybe Media Player 6.4
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 5:25pm fred:

Was that the famous Mr Softee music? I've never heard it, but it seems to fit the description
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh yeah, I think I heard Mr. Softee in there

Oh I like playing with volume sliders
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:29pm northguineahills:

I still don't miss the Mr. Softee jingle, give it another year and I'll wax nostalgic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:29pm Ike:

Yep, that was it. But you can't get the full effect until you listen to it blaring out of a speaker on every street in your neighborhood on a loop 634,928 times with no other sounds except traffic and maybe a few dumb screaming children while your own sweaty hands desperately grasp to jam the earbuds in deeper... deeper... to blot out the wretched, wretched repetition. And maybe the men in the white coats coming to drag you away.

Hi, Carmichael, northguineahills, Parq, Ike, Stanley, and Dave!

Fripp/Vista: Yes. I loved that. The talkback was almost more engrossing than Fripp's soundscaping.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 5:56pm listener james from westwood:

Between Watts and Frank this is bringing back memories of sitting in my car listening to the last bits of their broadcasts on WFMU in the 90s, unable to leave without hearing the end.

So this is Joe Frank with Kate Bush

I really ought to release video of the making of this one of these days
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 5:58pm fred:

@Rich in Washington: if Fripp records for Vista, and no one ever installs it, does it make a sound?
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 5:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

They didn't even use the Fripp music
Avatar    Wed. 8/30/17 5:59pm Rich in Washington:

Do it Kenzo! Do it all in one take, like Russian Ark!

Rich, that's funny. But of course I do it all in one take! Unrehearsed, unlike Russian Ark

Do 360 degree truck shots like Live At Pompei.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:02pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So this is Lou Reed with Kate Bush
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 6:02pm listener james from westwood:

Oooh, I think I remember this Reed loop getting play in winter 2013. (Fucked up time for me; this show was actually a weekly touchstone of unreality amid hard reality back then.)
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I was a bit surprised that soon after I did a show of remixing loops of Street Hassle that the same thing happened on The Best Show

Lost in America, great movie by Albert Brooks

There were a lot of Brooks' movies available on Netflix briefly. I got to revisit that one and Real Life.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:25pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I've never dared replay Our Jill before
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Rocky Horror soundtrack was big in my childhood
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Rich: Modern Romance! One of Stanley Kubrick's favorite films, inspiring Eyes Wide Shut
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

northguineahills, I'll miss you!

I had this Nina song stuck in my head all week after dreaming of it over the weekend
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I made a remix of this Young MC song for a recent dance I hosted. Took out the guy and just made it this sensual thing with the lady
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

May we all have the last notes of Rocky Horror Picture Show in our heads after this. Sadly no Susan Sarandon singing here
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Uh oh, more Robert John "Mutt" Lange coming up
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:35pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I am sad all music of the world isn't like this
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:35pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I keep using that Eno Windows bit like a windshield wiper
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:36pm Rand al'Thor:

Here for the last half hour.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:37pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Equinox, one of my favorite movies. I just love Alan Rudolph films
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:37pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hmm, I think I once figured out what piano piece this is at the end of Russian Ark
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So, this is classical Russian music with the woman in the Young MC song
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

First ever Nickelback on WFMU
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:39pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So this is Mutt Lange's Nickelback song with Young MC beats
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:39pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hi, Rand!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:39pm Rand al'Thor:

Hi Ken, everyone else.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Does anyone else find these sounds pleasing? It seems crazy that anyone would. Except I really do.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I mean this is a little irritating right now but I still like it
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 6:40pm steve:

yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 6:41pm Santos L. Halper:

Crazy pleasing. Except maybe the nickleback
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:41pm Rand al'Thor:

I like the piano track in the backing right now. It's a nice mix with everything else.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My second time trying that Nickelback out. It's harsh
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 6:42pm fred:

The Nickelback was a little too dominant. I know it's a first, but it could have used something else layered in
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I really want to remember what this piano piece is
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:42pm Gary:

You're right! I would have thought at least one WFMU DJ might have played Nickelback previously, but ...
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:42pm Rand al'Thor:

I think the last time you used that Nickelback track you kept changing its speed.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I think my first go at Nickelback was a little better but plenty irritating. It was mixed with Shania Twain (also Mutt Lange)
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Mmm MP3 artifacts. The archive version I'll post just before the show ends will be way better quality than this live stream.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:44pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Nickelback brings out the lurkers. Hi Santos and Gary!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:45pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Aha, Sergei Yevtushenko.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So this is Sergei Yevtushenko and Tori Amos and Shane Carruth from Primer
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:48pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Feel free to use a clicky star on the episode, send me email at ken at lastever dot org, even use the unreliable and hardly future-proof Facebook platform: www.facebook.com... 'cause I'd love to hear from you
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 6:51pm fred:

I might skip next week's show: a whole week of meetings and occasional addresses by our Dear Leader will probably have my brain in hibernate mode after three days
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:52pm Rand al'Thor:

Thank you, as always, for the show, Ken.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

First ever Velvet Cactus Society on WFMU
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:52pm Rand al'Thor:

Gonna listen back to what I missed in this episode once the archive hits.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:53pm Rand al'Thor:

Cactus!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:53pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Rand, it'll hit in a moment!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:54pm mossy lightouse:

I think the mp3 artifacts sort of balance out that we are also sharing attention with the live chat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 6:54pm Santos L. Halper:

Thanks Kenzo!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:54pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Exhaling
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:55pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This is the exit music now, so we can talk and breathe and hug each other and stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 6:56pm northguineahills:

Made it!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yes, sharing together in the live moment is quite important
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:57pm Rand al'Thor:

Nice to know we've all made it.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Thank you very very much, still b/p, Carmichael, fred, listener james from westwood, Rich in Washington, steve, Bliss, Ike, northguineahills, Dave in Vermont, Stanley, Parq, mossy lighthouse, and all the quiet people and last night's people and the texting people and the FB'ing people and the future people
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The high-quality archive...it's right here already!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Stay tuned to the stream for Gary's Bodega Pop Live
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/30/17 6:59pm fred:

Thanks again, Kenzo. Hopefully there will be more live shows in my future soon, so I'll probably not catch as many shows live. But I loved being able to do so for a while
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:59pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

oh and Santos and Gary, bye you too
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:59pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Glad, fred, really glad!
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 6:59pm Rand al'Thor:

Good bye, all.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 7:02pm mossy lightouse:

Thank you! It has been a wyrding, strengthening, redialing helpful show! I am very thankful to have heard and felt it. Enjoy your experiences with the film showing tomorrow!
