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.)

River's brother came to a party I was dj'ing at in FL and asked if he could smoke w/ us. (it was a party of maybe 35 kids, have no idea how he found it)

What a minute, do they need an adult maker of toys or a maker of adult toys?

an adult maker of adult toys, silly.

These annoying children singing remind me of Rosemary's Baby. Eeesh.

Yes, modulation then moderation . . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/13 2:53pm northguineahills:

(unfortunately, I'm immune to Novocaine, (must be genetic, as is my mother). It created some unfun situations when I was kid before they discovered why I was still feeling pain (thankfully, not for dental purposes)

...When Alice finishes, the Caterpillar comments that her recitation is not right. Alice concedes that it is not quite right, as some of the words are changed from normal. The Caterpillar retorts that her version is wrong from beginning to end...

Oh, Poltergeist it was. Yes, they can be annoying and pesky.

tuning in a little late: apparently hal hartley's next movie is going to be called "ned rifle," and parker posey's going to be in it.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 3:07pm glenn:

what about martin donovan?
  Wed. 9/4/13 3:08pm dc waters:

I see John Carpenter in the playlist. Just saw his "The Ward" over the weekend. Think it's probably his last. Not quite a stinker, but not his top form.
  Wed. 9/4/13 3:09pm dc waters:

That's a tautology?
Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 3:11pm baconfat:

cast listing so far is: gemma arterton, parker posey, liam aiken, james urbaniak, and thomas jay ryan. looks like a sequel to fay grim.

Just don't build your House of Yes on a Native American burial ground.

it is a tautology! trying to think of if the number 0 is or isn't like a tautology : )

I need to see House of Yes again.
I remember watching it and not liking it at the time.
  Wed. 9/4/13 3:16pm dc waters:

Just looked up "tautology": Not what I was thinking of. What's the 'ology' for a self-contained, self-referential syllogism?
  Wed. 9/4/13 3:17pm Bliss:

Bravo on the Ellison snippet.
  Wed. 9/4/13 3:19pm dc waters:

Harlan, my boy! Went to a well-reviewed Japanese restaurant for my birthday. TVs all around the place blasting March Madness. It was maddening all right.

Trouble understanding each other's adjectives. Instead of "Trouble with Pronouns," they could perform as "Trouble with Adjectives."
Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 3:23pm listener james from westwood:

ellison should know. his "glass teat" collections of tv criticism were withering and have only gotten more true as time has passed.
  Wed. 9/4/13 3:23pm possibilitywaves:

very fun!! : ) "Transcendence with transcendence"

Good point about the niceness of hosting an art exhibit in your apartment.

Just got in. Alas, missed Ellison. A personal hero, that one.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 3:28pm fleep:

Can I call it Peggy?
  Wed. 9/4/13 3:28pm dc waters:

I presume the other Ellison fans here caught the interview with Chris T., or at least the archive?
  Wed. 9/4/13 3:29pm dc waters:

Just don't call it Maggie May.

what?! i missed a chris t–harlan ellison interview? hoo boy, that could've gone any number of ways.

I'd never heard of Ellison before today.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/13 3:34pm listener james from westwood:

thanks, dc. looks to have focused on his reprinted books thru norton. for a real rollecoaster ride, read his interviews w/ the onion's av club. the earlier one appeared to have overwhelmed the interviewer.
  Wed. 9/4/13 3:34pm Bliss:

fleep, Did you see Blackfish?
  Wed. 9/4/13 3:35pm M:

Hello there Ken, misheard you when you requested a name, thought you asked my name, Margaret...
How about, "I want to step across"
  Wed. 9/4/13 3:37pm dc waters:

I thought we were being bred for food. Fast food, sedentary (TV) lifestyle, tasty fat for the alien diet.

@fleep: That happens (albeit accidentally) in Rust and Bone.

The two hours seems to go by fast.
Must be because the show is enjoyable to listen to.

oh thanks oh love oh everything!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 2:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hooray, it's all here! The archive, the mess, the clearing, the calls, the beauty, the pain, the well wishes, the goodbyes, and everything continuing.

Keep on every Wed. 2-4pm ET, PLUS every other Tuesday 11pm-1am ET.
