Ken,

Since I won't be able to request you a song in a long time I thought of requesting one last song before your disappearance. I believe it's a meaningful song for me and for everybody else here.

John Cage - Organ²/ASLSP

Just play it and stay alert with the dump button because Ione version has an expletive at some point in the song.

People that is not Ken,

HA! I just tricked Ken into playing John Cage's slowest and longest music piece ever! It takes only 639 years to play! I also told him there's a swear word somewhere so he will have to stay put waiting to press the dump button! Ken won't be able to go away from the mic for a long, long time!

The average home in the Greater Toronto Area is about $800k. In Western NY around Buffalo you can get an OK house in Niagara County for about $150k. No granite, marble and stainless steel appliances, but solid house in good condition, yes. Not exactly a fixer upper but lets say the less expensive house in the good area. OK, we paid 140k and it has old carpet and old appliances and an older roof....am I in denial?

At the end of the day I can do my work remotely from anywhere. But people are obsessed with “tuchuses in seats” so I have to sit in an office when all I need is a high speed Internet connection from anywhere… So I live in NYC because of that.

away from the commuter lines along the hudson you can still do OK for less than 100K. sadly the flippers are onto us..

Ken,

I really think you should do a fill-in for every DJ in WFMU. Just one fill-in per DJ. Take your time. You can do one fill-in a week. Nothing special. Pure light work.



Non-Kens:

HA! I just tricked Ken! I told him to do a fill in a week per every WFMU DJ! He won't realise there are enough DJs to do a weekly show for more than a year!

our valley has 'net service now (yes, just now) & folks are starting to work from here remotely. that should be a big help for our community in general.

@Brian at 11:22: there are various theories as to the origin of Newark's designation as "Brick City". One of the most popular (and I believe most accurate) is that it was inspired by the dozens of brick-fronted projects built by the Newark Housing Authority all around town from the 1930s through the 1960s and then busied itself tearing down from the 1980s until today.

I am fully in favor of standing desks. I felt better when I used to do it about 6 hours a day. It really is better. Neal Stephenson the author of Cryptonomicon has a treadmill he walks on at about 2 mph while he works. I am a test engineer, so for tests I must be in the lab, but otherwise, if I forward the phone and put all the relevant files on g drive I can work from home about 70% effectively.

One last thing. Please don't play the funeral song at the end of this show just like last week. That will only add fuel to the already running conspiracy theories about your departure.
