Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. (Visit homepage.)

Howdy, Kenzo and all Last Ever fans!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 5:00pm listener james from westwood:

I see Brad Fiedel listed; will lie in wait of possible Terminator soundtrack music....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 5:02pm melinda:

hi peeps
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Not the Terminator! But you can go back a score to The Coming Storms for that: lastever.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 5:05pm listener james from westwood:

That's what i was hoping, as I know very little of his non-killer-robot scores!
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:06pm Bliss:

Kenzo, can you add the pop up link?
  Wed. 9/27/17 5:07pm possibilitywaves:

Hello!! Enjoy the film showing tonight! I recently remembered a film I am wondering if you already know, and maybe it will be interesting to others here too.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:08pm Bliss:

Oh shit! There it is further down. Sorry, Kenzo.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Right, so many things to remember. No, the one further down is back 8 minutes in time
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:10pm Bliss:

Okay, i have the right one now. Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 5:10pm steve:

why hello
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

listener james: It's from Fright Night, which is musically rather similar to The Terminator in some ways. The two movies have a nearly identical night club scene.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

why not hello? steve, Bliss, possibilitywaves, james, and melinda!
Avatar    Wed. 9/27/17 5:11pm gloomsday:

hello hello!
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

oh AND GLOOMSDAY
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:13pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

There are four shows within this show (plus the show of the last 18 minutes which has some within it) (plus probably shows within the within shows) But mostly not withins!
Avatar    Wed. 9/27/17 5:14pm gloomsday:

hey kenzo :) first time listener, but i'm absolutely in love thus far.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:14pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

gloomsday: Our honeymoon period will last 23 years
Avatar    Wed. 9/27/17 5:15pm gloomsday:

where do i sign?
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:16pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh happened in the first 10 minutes of Cherry 2000 (the only part particularly worth watching), a future in which all intimate encounters, negotiated at bars, involve lawyers and lengthy contracts. From the director of Miracle Mile (discussed here previously) before he finally got to make the movie he wanted to me
  Wed. 9/27/17 5:17pm Sandra:

Hi Ken, I'm tuning in.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:17pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Sandra, you are the tuning forth beneath (some of) this show's wings
  Wed. 9/27/17 5:18pm Sandra:

indeed. that.

Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:22pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The phone caller answered for me
  Wed. 9/27/17 5:22pm Eliyah:

Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:23pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh, NO PHONE CALLS TODAY despite that I'm saying PHONE CALLS TODAY but I don't mean it
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

UNLESS you're in the right January in which case please call about Forrest Gump

hi kenzo
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Ursula first. Show within show within show from Poland
  Wed. 9/27/17 5:28pm possibilitywaves:

The film i remembered is "Alternative 3" from 1977. There are quite a few layers; it is a pretend documentary aired in the UK on April Fools, but about unusually important subjects that would become more and more relevant.
There are unique references to other films and the art of filmmaking, as well as being soundtracked by Brian Eno and containing very welcome and nonsequitorial references to Dovid Bowie.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'm excited to move out of the show within show which many of us heard recentlyish already
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 5:33pm listener james from westwood:

"might add some interest to this moment." Lowkey burn!
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Did I say it? She already burned me like twice. Kid never put up with anything substandard
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 5:36pm listener james from westwood:

Gotta give zingers when you get zingers. Only way she'll strengthen her own zingers!
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I don't think I have a concussion
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:39pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Jeff Daniels will be the cue that we've jumped into 2017

here...
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

there there
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'm quite disoriented about what we're listening to. Can you help?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 5:55pm steve:

Kenzo was the David Lynch from Catching the Big Fish? that was inspiring.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 5:59pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

David Lynch indeed!
  Wed. 9/27/17 6:02pm misty:

I am breathing - very little disorientation there. or here.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Alan Watts for you
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:06pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Terry Gilliam! Time Bandits. I'm off to see Brazil shortly.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:06pm Bliss:

Brazil 2 being made?
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:10pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

You can always count on a police officer whenever you need help.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Bliss: Fortunately, Brazil wasn't popular enough
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 6:11pm listener james from westwood:

1974 kids: Yay, Electoral College!
2017 adults: BURN THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE TO THE GROUND
  Wed. 9/27/17 6:11pm possibilitywaves:

All the best to you! It is going to be really warm for one more day, and then astonishing crisp autumntime will be here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 6:22pm northguineahills:

Thanks Kezo, going to leave work in a bit, always funzo!
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:25pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

2017 adults to kids: Go ahead, believe everything I've already learned isn't true. I'm not strong enough to face otherwise
Avatar    Wed. 9/27/17 6:28pm gloomsday (michelle):

still listening, still loving... :)
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Commitment to something that isn't happening is a barrier
  Wed. 9/27/17 6:35pm possibilitywaves:

Yes! : ) Power is not energy, generally what is considered evidence or use of power is use of energy. Communicative compatibility and adaptibility perhaps are what actually happens, thankfully!
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

How do you feel about talking to a computer?
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Thanks, I made soup.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:45pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I wish I could talk to you
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Thank you for letting go
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:54pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

You know what, I think the wrong file played tonight. That's why I've been so confused.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 6:54pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, Kenzo!!
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:55pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Which also explains why it ended early.
Avatar    Wed. 9/27/17 6:55pm gloomsday (michelle):

there is no wrong. that was very right :) thank you.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:56pm Gary:

I'll see if I can load something up for the 4 min interim
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:56pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The wrong show aired! Oops.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:57pm Gary:

Or I can wait, either way!
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

No wonder I was so disoriented. This wasn't Every Path is the Right Path. It was one of the Ramu shows. Follow the archive links to hear the proper show, because it's a good one! Gary, go ahead and start your thing. The show that was supposed to air tonight didn't run short.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 6:58pm Gary:

No worries; I'm liking this Japanese music! I'll start at 7
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 7:00pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So, thanks everyone. You heard probably Waiting for Ramu. I meant for you to hear Every Path is the Right Path. Snafu on the scheduling side. The archive link, which is available now, has the lovely show all those samples listed were promising. Love to all...
