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

chresti, you'll have to re-favorite the image, I swapped it

Or rather, pulled under.
  Wed. 10/2/19 5:26pm Sandra:

Hi Ken, was this when you were in Austin?
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 5:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It sure was. 304 E 5th St.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 5:37pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

And, there's the whole sample listing, all out of order.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 5:51pm Ian!:

I am in order. The chair will recognize me, even without my glasses.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:00pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Self-recognition furnishings.

Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:03pm Ian!:

I want this cello music. What is it?
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:04pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Probably Vivaldi. But it only comes with Reagan included.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:04pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I only collage add, not collage remove * (*not true)
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:05pm Ian!:

I went to collage years ago. Psychology and then Computer Science. Quite the collage.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:09pm Ian!:

Reagan's musical voice is in three flats, because he had to move three times while composing it.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The day of this collage was the day his final decomposition began.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:14pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

How dare someone interrupt Reagan
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:15pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Ian! It is (a few copies of) a Vivaldi cello concerto
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:16pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

in E minor, third movement
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:19pm Ian!:

I am powerless against cellos in E minor.

Boy, I forgot what a despicable old gas bag Reagan was. Thanks for reminding me.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Never Forget.

Oh - Ronnie was a turning point.

Jello Biafra
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This one, after he'd been under for a week.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Jello Biafra is a turning point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/2/19 6:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

In fact I don't think the DKs get enuff cred for how much they dropped amphetamine into peoples' social conscience.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:36pm Franco Twinkie:

I only saw them once in 1980 with The Cramps and X. I found them tedious after the first ten minutes. I'll admit I was having a bad night, but by then the whole punk rock circus was wearing a little thin.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:37pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

His speeches are quite great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/2/19 6:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Having seen how much they can take out & still have Rawk

True that, RR.

...is there more underemployment...I mean...
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:48pm Franco Twinkie:

Put a sock in your mouth, Ronnie.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:53pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Refreshingly dense after the previous half-hour episode.
Avatar Wed. 10/2/19 6:55pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Thanks everyone for coming along for these lovely collage memories. See you next week, with somethings!

I remember that day. I came home for lunch and it was all over TV. Weird, to say the least.
