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

I love the way I can change the spelling of my commenting name without logging out.

Did you innovate that? Thanks.

Stay weird.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:00pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

ike, yes, and it's always been that way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/2/17 5:01pm (i)(k)EEEEEEE:

Oh I'm not suggesting it's new. It's just that I never thanked you or WFMU for it before. So thanks!
Avatar    Wed. 8/2/17 5:02pm fred:

Hello Kenzo. I should not linger long today. I left my key stuck in my office door when leaving, so I have to get to work early, when regular people get there
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/2/17 5:02pm Weirdo:

This is weird
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:02pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Glad you like, Ike!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Welcome, my weird friends, not limited to listen james, ike, fred, and Stanley/weirdo.

hello Kenzo and Extravagant listeners
Avatar    Wed. 8/2/17 5:08pm fred:

I guess I should be saving the thought stopping goodness for another time. Not much to stop here. I've been very dumb today, even by my standards
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:13pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@fred, it's a perfect time to be with fellow unthinkers!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:13pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Welcome, coelacanth!

Events such as these will affect us in the future, because that's where we will spend the rest of our lives.
Avatar    Wed. 8/2/17 5:17pm Webhamster Henry:

But because this is a rerun ... this IS THE FUTURE.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:19pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This is making me seasick
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This is an episode about live phone callers, so it will keep changing.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hi, past and future Henry.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

They made me do a ticket giveaway. They never did again.
Avatar    Wed. 8/2/17 5:37pm fred:

Many someone will call that number now and get these tickets
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/2/17 5:37pm Kat in Chicago:

Checking in, though I can't chat bc work is being very worky today :(
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

fred, I hope so because I want someone to get the damn tickets already
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:41pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Welcome, Kat in Chicago!

hi folks!

Hi, melinda! The polar quality of life these days...
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:48pm mossy lightouse:

Hello! A combining of three shows is very tempting, and, it is going to happen!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:50pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Welcome, mossy. There were about 20 shows inside this show. I can't remember if the next show beginning in 8 minutes has shows within it.
Avatar    Wed. 8/2/17 5:50pm fred:

I was reading an article that had this phrase near the end "who you are is suspended always by where you are, where you’ve been, whom you’re with, what you’ll confront". Listening to this show probably made it different from what the author intended
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:56pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I hope somebody gets the tickets
Avatar    Wed. 8/2/17 5:58pm fred:

Twin Peaks!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oops too late. Jumped forward 4 months in time!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 5:58pm northguineahills:

Bandalamenti n da house!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:02pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hi, northguineahills!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:04pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I wonder if people 4 months later were still calling for the tickets
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:05pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I spent two years of Austin shows trying to get that caller to respond to something I said. He did it at my last show
Avatar    Wed. 8/2/17 6:10pm fred:

Did he did it because it was your last show, or was it your last show because he finally did?
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I think it was "Layered Laughter Brings New Closure to the Guy" lastever.org...
Avatar    Wed. 8/2/17 6:15pm fred:

I gotta go sleep, I might catch the rest in the archives later
  Wed. 8/2/17 6:16pm Bliss:

Only now arriving. fred, what time zone are you in?
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:17pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

What time zone is this show in? I feel like the Over the Edge callers showed up this week.
  Wed. 8/2/17 6:20pm Dzeli:

here here! just tuning in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/2/17 6:21pm coelacanth∅:

i'm amused that people who are brainwashed with religion are always prepared to answer any question thrown at them and at no point feel the need to ponder anything.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Welcome to 2005, Dzeli!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I can't remember if the Pi samples had anything to do with the religious callers
  Wed. 8/2/17 6:22pm Dzeli:

aural timewarp...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/2/17 6:23pm coelacanth∅:

(...i could point out, too, the smugness with which that girl answered all questions)
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Uh oh, the part where the computer gets stuck
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(in 12 minutes)
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:28pm Dzeli:

the military marching in the background is getting to me...
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Dzeli, I was just thinking about that. It happened a lot in this era of shows. I think we get away without any GWB samples this week, though.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:30pm northguineahills:

coelacanth∅: I see that when I visit my folk's friends. It's even more infuriating they don't know anything of the theology of their brand of Protestantism, let alone know anything in the Bible(s). Trying to talk about the history of the Bible, or the Protestant church, leads to blank stares.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:31pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I think the relgious talk brought it on. It's all one thing, religion, sports, war, politics...attachment to belief systems
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:31pm Dzeli:

I like the culture clash of the caller and the stream of questions you were asking.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:32pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Does the stream freeze and rebuffer every 20 minutes for anyone but me?
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:32pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Ray Noble!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:33pm Dzeli:

nope, it's running smoothly.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Let someone relax into uncertainty and eventually they'll start singing. This show is proof.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:34pm Dzeli:

that was awesome
  Wed. 8/2/17 6:37pm Bliss:

Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh it's the computer freeze moment. Lost the phone caller at the same time, how lonely.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:41pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

All detailed at lastever.org...
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:43pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I think I just used this Alan Alda sample last week (lastever.org...)
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:43pm mossy lightouse:

Yes; monogamy, Sleepwalking (couples only dance), it is somehow relaxing to see that computers have helped some people to unattach from belief systems, and, re-unattach if we do get attached again. I may be attached to some, and i can try to figure out what they are!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:44pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

mossy! You once sent me a photo/picture. I brought it to a dance I hosted/musicked on Sunday. It was sent crashing down by a dancer. It was beautiful, the glass shatter. (The picture is fine, just lost the glass.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/2/17 6:45pm coelacanth∅:

ngh if i were in any position to discuss the bible i know that would be even more frustrating than the irrational behavior itself.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

is it almost ever?
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:49pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

In 3.5 minutes we leave 2005 and jump briefly to 2003
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:49pm mossy lightouse:

I have never seen the other side of the picture! Is there anything there? I am glad that it flew gradually out of my room and I Remember to Breathe to somehow also be part of your new music project experience!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:50pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

("I Don't Remember to Breathe": lastever.org... )

mossy: The picture hasn't come out of the frame, so I don't know what secrets live on its underside

So was A Sense of Recognition. Now, a brief visit to a brief moment from two years earlier...They Ignore Me
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/2/17 6:52pm Dave in Vermont:

helping me notice things i see like the fork in the branches of the plum tree and be detached from things i hear like the utterances of my daughter
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:53pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Wonderful, Dave. See you soon, Gary!
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:53pm Dzeli:

it enhances my trance state, while numbers swim around me. just stimulated enough to keep focused.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Enjoy the rest of your trance. We'll part soon. I'll miss you forever. I'll always be here. There was no time before. Show ends in 2 and a half minutes. Something else next week. Probably very very very new. We'll find out. Explore archives at lastever.org . Even a podcast (wfmu.org...) and another podcast (lastever.org...)
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:59pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'm glad you all checked in, Dzeli, Dave, Gary, mossy, coelacanth, Bliss, fred, northguineahills, Kat, Henry, Stanley, ike, and the people who texted me and emailed and used "Face" book to say hello
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 6:59pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

And future archive listeners
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/2/17 7:00pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Kenzo!
  Wed. 8/2/17 7:00pm Bliss:

Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 7:00pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

That's it! Gary next.
Avatar Wed. 8/2/17 7:09pm mossy lightouse:

This is a vibrant combining of an era of your show, which brings awareness that so much about the future can be displayed in both the abstract and more specific, through improvisation and allowing many people to each communicate within an improvised scene! From the personal to group to whole vast subcultures, of course each is vast, somehow the interplay of interpretation and realization is tangible and lovingly, humanely so within each show!
