Good afternoon Kenzo. I won't hang out for long (for real this time): I have to get up early tomorrow

"Audio of people playing Dungeons & Dragons (D&D, AD&D), live"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/13/17 5:13pm fred:

I hope it held up well to your ears. I have a very fond memory of it (I mean the Paris show, not the D&D)
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:18pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My note says it was my favorite of that tour. Still wonder what it will be like to bring it out to a radio environment like this. Still not online!
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh, we're hearing the show about pancakes
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:22pm geezerette:

It's working...dream state achieved.

geezerette, you're fading in and out

i want everything to be like this always
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 5:42pm listener james from westwood:

Happy anniversary!

Wow, Feb. 2005. What messages would I send myself back then?
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

what do you want?

I saw this, the show name written with letters in reverse, today!

There are three characteristic ways in which the energy manifests – Dang, Rolpa, and Tsal.

Dang is the energy in which ‘internal’ and ‘external’ are not divided from that which manifests. It is symbolised by the crystal sphere which becomes the colour of whatever it is placed upon.

Rolpa is the energy which manifests internally as vision. It is symbolised by the mirror. The image of the reflection always appears as if it is inside the mirror.

Tsal is externally manifested energy which radiates. It is symbolised by the refractive capacity of the faceted crystal. For a realised being, this energy is inseparable in its manifestation from the dimension of manifest reality. Dang, Rolpa, and Tsal are not divided.

pancake talk now this is what i came here for
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/13/17 5:46pm steve:

i love a good pancake
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 5:46pm Carmichael:

I have never felt so Rolpa as I do now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/13/17 5:46pm steve:

the band the pancakes is good
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

finally pancake happened to me
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:47pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hi Steve, and possibilitywaves!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 5:48pm listener james from westwood:

Good to hear the show is a welcoming space for cyborgs!
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:49pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

ooh I missed that
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:50pm geezerette:

sparkling pancake harbingers nest in maple trees.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:50pm geezerette:

it's a fact.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:52pm geezerette:

they sing a syrupy song.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

more butter? more syrup? you like? I like
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:56pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

oh here comes the first ending. Goodbye soon, 2005!
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hello 2004, such an innocent time
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 5:58pm listener james from westwood:

St. Matthew's Passion, IIRC, right here?
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 5:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

indeed, listener james

Wie Setzen Uns Mit Tranen Nieder

w00t! Aka, "the opening-credits/closing soliloquy music from 'Casino.'"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 5:59pm Carmichael:

We seem to be going backwards ...
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:00pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Right, slow motion fire?
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:00pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Carmichael: We will eventually reach the beginning
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:00pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

And in THX-1138, of course

Hi, Rich!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:04pm listener james from westwood:

Ah, one of my favorite Kenzo loops!
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:04pm geezerette:

instructions or observations? both?
Avatar    Wed. 9/13/17 6:04pm Rich in Washington:

stupid work meetings made me miss the 1st half.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:05pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Taken over by namesake loop
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:05pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Rich: Go back for it! So so dreamy, gosh
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:05pm Carmichael:

The first whole, actually. You missed all of 2005.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:05pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I've gotta clicky star it
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:07pm geezerette:

sounds like a pork eclipse now.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:08pm geezerette:

...ham is good with pancakes & syrup.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

oh I wonder if the pancake conversation continued in 2004
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:10pm listener james from westwood:

I know the focus is on Rummy bollixing the Shanksville part, but I also keep hearing "death hall in Mosul" vs. "mess hall." Maybe too much aspartame for him that day.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:10pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Me too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:11pm listener james from westwood:

Whole fucking country of Iraq was a death hall in 2005, so not inaccurate.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

good thing that's all behind us
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:11pm listener james from westwood:

(Or 2004, he said, spotting the show date.)
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:12pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I may have been using a future sample
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:12pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'm just waiting for the cows
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:13pm geezerette:

Reality is so surreal now that this show is clearer than the news.
I love cows.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:15pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So quaint, calling them "people." Pols would be more inflammatory and dehumanizing today, I think.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:17pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

so, this is scary. the first half didn't prepare me for this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:17pm listener james from westwood:

It's always an exercise in cognitive dissonance to look at the Bush camarilla as "good" compared to the current litterbox, but I don't know how to end this sentence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:18pm Carmichael:

2004 was waaaay different ...
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:18pm geezerette:

In the 20th C. school desks had magical properties. Children kneeling under them could survive a nuclear attack! Isn't that wonderful?
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:19pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Speaking of which, and seeing as which direction the audio has turned today, I finally finished "Threads." Really brutal. (Early 80's BBC film attempting to portray the after effects of nuclear holocaust in a realistic, unsanitized way.)
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:20pm geezerette:

If I listen any longer I might cry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:20pm listener james from westwood:

Some Donkey Kong buried in that mix.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:21pm listener james from westwood:

It's the board with those springy things and the elevators. Ah, my misspent youth. And quarters.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:21pm geezerette:

Ken, where did you find that film?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:21pm Carmichael:

Sounds like Missile Command also, or maybe Galaga.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:22pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

At least there aren't bears. There's a show a little like this one that has a lot of bears that I actually can't listen to. On the surface that might be a gentler show. (One Step Closer, from 3 months before this. lastever.org...)
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:22pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh, somewhere online, where all movies are
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:23pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Those springy things were really noisy
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:23pm geezerette:

Dang. Thank You.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I tried to play Ms. Pac Man on someone's stand-up arcade MAME thingy recently, but it had an 8-way joystick, which makes these games unplayable. New people trying it out will misunderstand!
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Tsal!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:33pm Carmichael:

Defender is my arcade game of choice.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Reverse! Love those Williams games
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I wonder how badly the two-way joystick in that would translate to the 8-way on the emulator machine
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:39pm listener james from westwood:

Oooh, there's a track on the "Pi" soundtrack that uses Defender samples. I think it's Aphex Twin, "Bucephalus Bouncing Ball."
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:39pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I didn't notice that. P.S. Black Swan was pretty good
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

listener james, is this the loop you meant you liked?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:45pm Carmichael:

Really, LJFW?? I shall go look for a listen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:47pm listener james from westwood:

If you're talking about the, if I'm correct, Rick Springfield, then yes indeed! (The 80s-ish one that sounds like a second cousin to the also-excellent "Lawyers in Love" loop.)
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:48pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

We're mostly hearing the 38 Special loop
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:51pm listener james from westwood:

.38 Special! There we are! They occupy a similar spot in my mental index.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

What if I didn't want to say goodbye? Goodbye?
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I replayed a show that used a Rick Springfield loop a few weeks ago here
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:53pm listener james from westwood:

@Carmichael: www.youtube.com... for your later delectation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/13/17 6:54pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, Kenzo!
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:55pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I miss how happy I felt during the 2005 half!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/13/17 6:55pm steve:

later Kenzo my feedback is i like your show
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 6:55pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):
