Wacky gemiatra stuff going on in that film.

I first read "electoral collage" instead of "electoral college"
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 5:16pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yes, it's from Pi. And Wes Craven's New Nightmare. And Schoolhouse Rock Electoral College. And that Michael Moore movie.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 5:16pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

And Rhoda

I knew it was "Pi", and I fell asleep in the first 20 minutes of it 15 years ago, and never got to finish it. I should do so.
  Wed. 1/24/18 5:20pm melinda:

I thought I heard a bit of Rhoda

@fred: Erectoral collage?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 5:24pm fred:

I loved Pi at the time. Then again, I was deep into reading Wittgenstein for the first time at the time. I suspect it has not aged well (for me)
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 5:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hi, ngh!
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 5:25pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Pi was practice for Requiem for a Dream

@Kenzo: when reading the show's comments column ("The electoral college will have the final voice...")
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 5:25pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Speaking of which, much of Black Swan was good/harrowing. It veers off later in the film with the introduction of an annoying character. But wonderfully claustrophobic otherwise.

The voice did not record
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 6:01pm fred:

Of course the first thing I did was feed its output into it and hear what happened along iterations. Sadly, it gets silent quickly (especially with voice, less so with percussion or pipa, the strong attacks MP3 squashes)
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 6:02pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This second hour is at least WAV->128k MP3. First hour was 128k MP3->128k MP3.

Yes, this is a show intro quite unlike any i have experienced yet!
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 6:02pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Ooh the show ending time is right
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 6:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I gather from all that I see that there is a good deal of speculation and skepticism about whether I am who I am
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 6:04pm fred:

@possibilitywaves: try it and if you have any trouble contact me if you can't find the author's contact info
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 6:04pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I have a serious lack of recordkeeping about this episode. I wonder if I have handwritten notes/playlist in my files

How did you find that show? That might give a clue about companion documents
  Wed. 1/24/18 6:08pm possibilitywaves:

Thank you very much fred! I sometime settle on mp3 for my own recordings to upload for streaming on archive.org, but, they can handle wave files.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 6:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I mean, I have the date. It's in my database. There's just scant details.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 6:10pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I feel lazy to go looking for my paper notes but it's not like I would've been writing all these samples down.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 6:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Suddenly I'm having trouble remembering how I playlisted during that period. Computer forensics afterwards maybe...
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 6:12pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

How odd to not have a detailed memory of an evening 13 1/2 years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 6:13pm fred:

Sure, but it's later than one (#324) for which you have details. It might be somewhere, just misplaced because of a disk swap or computer change at the time
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 6:16pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So many hard drives
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 6:20pm fred:

I guess you might not want to search for documents containing 9/11. That could get fed back to people who would misinterpret it
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 6:22pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yes, such a safe and conservative show I run
