I only have 3 shows left from last year's premium. I save these for when I think my walk home will be the longest. But if I run out I'll fish out the previous one

Is a handshake like a milkshake?

Sounds like he's saying "roadie."
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 5:22pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

That's why I don't like playlist details or lyrics sheets. Forces a way of hearing.

@Ike: You can count Mary Wing as a member of the antiFe. She expressed dismay at our foe's clicky-star count and ruled out a Heavy Metal cover segment earlier today
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Year-End Fundraiser 2019 Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/1/19 5:26pm chresti:

Now I have the song "Milkshake" playing in my head..
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 5:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@fred Hopefully they ship the new DVD soon! I can't wait to see whether the cover came out at all. Last-minute decision to do a color photo instead of the usual sparse text on barely imperceptible fuzz.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 5:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I wish I remembered what I was filtering through. Something on a borrowed couple of laptops.

@Kenzo: I don't expect anything until August at least, the downside of getting a lot of stuff
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 5:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Mmm, waiting for the last thing.

It's Ian! !

@fred, oh good! I was too swamped with work to hit the comments, but I was listening to a good chunk of her show.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 5:37pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh I recognize this sample. Not gonna give it away unless asked
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 5:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The car's on fire, and there's no driver at the wheel.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 5:44pm Ian!:

Two days ago on my bicycle I got doored by a parked car, not on fire, with a driver at the wheel.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 5:44pm Ian!:

I am bent but not broken.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 5:45pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

'The bicyclist struck the car" as the New York Times likes to say
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 5:47pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Ian!, you might be disappointed: my voice appears (almost) nowhere in this episode. For some others, perhaps some relief.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Year-End Fundraiser 2019 Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/1/19 5:48pm fred:

I often miss the show because I'm often out, but I really enjoy listening to these old shows when I walk back home at night. I usually even ignore a bus that would get me home faster so that I can listen to more of it
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 5:49pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I probably did not ever speak on mic at a stage show until Jan. 8, 2008 in Denver, Colorado.

That's your 3 year old niece, has she listened to this?

Your now 20 year old niece.

@chresti In fact I'm in the process of letting her know about it.

How's the yellow vest situation? @fred
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 6:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Gosh I wish I could remember what I used for this one episode only (but maybe also for some of the 2001 stage shows). SoundMulch for Windows 95?
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 6:13pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This episode is the last one that sounds anything like this. Starting with my next show (on stage too but also on radio), I moved out of this electronic-y phase. I did 3 shows, took a year off, and then got back into a weekly radio show after 4 years without one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/1/19 6:14pm Ike:

The sound is so all-enveloping that at the beginning of this track, I thought somebody had brought their kid into the office. And then just now, I thought the janitorial staff at the office had turned on a vacuum cleaner for a second there... oh no wait, that *was* the janitorial staff.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Year-End Fundraiser 2019 Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/1/19 6:15pm fred:

@chresti: Annoying. And worrying in that they're turning into our own Tea Party. Except they won't bring a fake fascist clown to power, it's going to be the real thing. Good thing my health isn't that good
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 6:15pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I've lowered the volume a couple of times nervously to see what's really here in this room.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/1/19 6:19pm Michael 98145:

i suspect our fake fascist clown is just an agent of twitter
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Year-End Fundraiser 2019 Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/1/19 6:20pm chresti:

It has a nice. spacey dub feeling to it@Kenzo
@fred more and more fascist clowns hovering around, bad scene.
Sorry to hear about bad health!

@chresti: What I hate the most is the "left" around here turning into a nationalist and racist movement. Black block and yellow vests merge into brown shirts. Violence their only creed

Kenzo. Kubrick. 'Kay ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/1/19 6:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah. UhOh. Libertarians suckered into opening the back door for the FarRight. When the Left abandons the Poor - we get this.

@Carmichael: That would be an easy choice for me. But now anarchists join nazis, so it's not even a choice anymore. To be fair, anarchists who join nazis are cast out, but splitting away is an anarchist art form

Thanks Kenzo!

Now that I'm listening to it, I can hear how this show was already transitioning back into the phase that began right afterwards. Drifty.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 6:55pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@martinibomb Someday, a live videocast of the screen during a show. I record them all.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/19 6:56pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Glad you were all here to hear. Evocative visit to a transitional moment of transitional moments. Let's see what my niece thinks, or will she wait 17 more years...
