i have this feeling my radio show doesn't cultivate the most jobful within us
  2:08pm possibilitywaves:

Always continue with your art theory as it is the light of nature. : ) We overall are working hard to try and stay agile as people and find new work through synchronous surprises and signs and work that is accepting of minds!
Avatar 2:09pm kat330:

Wow. Instead I wind up in a 4-way time post.
  2:09pm Bliss:

Howdy, listener james of westwood.

Haha, thanks Kenzo.

Avatar 2:15pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

OK, then including the ones I was thinking of, that brings it up to 7
Avatar 2:15pm kat330:

So are there never any live programs airing in this time slot?
  2:16pm possibilitywaves:

is there a connectivityweaves continuing natural quilting way to live?
Avatar 2:17pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

kat330: There are often live programs airing in this time slot! Such as, one week from today.
Avatar 2:18pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I have no studio available to me this week, so I have unearthed a never-before-released show, for which I am now wildly trying to identify all the source materials.
Avatar 2:19pm kat330:

It seems ages since I've tuned into a live one. "To live"
Ah, well, OK then.

@PW: Quilting B or not 2 B?
Avatar 2:20pm duke:

wish I had some key lime pie
  2:21pm possibilitywaves:

it does sound both familiar and very new, jamais vu! Yes : ) It reminds me about how it is amazing that bees can self-quilt little tiny tents and have them all-connecting : ) :d
Avatar 2:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

your icon's color recalls the lime key. i ate a lime 30 minutes ago.
Avatar 2:22pm kat330:

Key lime, pumpkin and pecan are a few of my favorite pies.

This time of year, pistachio nuts and clementines are also some of my favorite things.
  2:22pm Bliss:

Whats' the "key" in key lime pie about?
Avatar 2:23pm kat330:

Not sure, but I think it's a geo ref.
Avatar 2:24pm kat330:

As in originated in the Florida Keys or somesuch.

I don't know who sang "Guilty"

This show was live deep in the intimate night. Time travel.
Avatar 2:26pm duke:

If it's time travel, are we in the past or the future?
Avatar 2:27pm Bliss:

My laptop crashed and I paid $220 to get it fixed.

the tech overlords continue their hostile takeover
Avatar 2:29pm Bliss:

I was ashamed at my addiction, when faced with 24 hours with no computer at home.

before technology we could communicate, eat, breathe, work, love, sleep, fight, grow, ease, spread, forever rest

"She told me to follow my bliss"
Avatar 2:36pm Bliss:

Wow, the Coco Rosie thing is 9 years old.
Avatar 2:36pm kat330:

Does this call go on the entire program?
Avatar 2:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

it takes intention to feel and see the breadth of possibility
Avatar 2:37pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It doesn't go for the entire program but it is quite a stretch to my memory. I hesitated last time I considered resurrecting it for the daytime. Today, I ran forth.
Avatar 2:39pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

You can call in next week for 20 minutes!
Avatar 2:40pm kat330:

I think a 20-min. call is, generally speaking, too long. A caller has to be really interesting to span that amount of time.
Avatar 2:40pm Bliss:

Was breakfast on the brink a morning show?
Avatar 2:41pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

listener james, what's your favorite thing right now?
Avatar 2:42pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Nothing is too long or too short. Except most things. Wait for the "best of" album I will release when I am finished making these radio shows.
Avatar 2:44pm kat330:

Wonder why Lowery turned from Key Lime Pie to Cracker.
Avatar 2:44pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

oooh I should've resurrected the show from exactly one year ago. I don't have any notes to scare me away from it. Extra mysterious.
Avatar 2:47pm kat330:

So this is breakfast? Feels more like sleepy nighttime.
Avatar 2:49pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Lowery has many impressive things to say, such as: www.salon.com...
(Silicon Valley must be stopped, or creativity will be destroyed)
Avatar 2:51pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

"But the four alarm fire isn’t the length of copyright. The four-alarm fire is that large, multinational corporations have figured out ways to monetize our music, our lyrics, without cutting us in on that. The currency of page views, the currency is you can set up a website that has the top 20 song lyrics, charge advertising on it, do your SEO right and you’ve got a top 500 Alexa website and you generate revenue from that. And you don’t cut in the artist. So this is kind of like the old music business of when the artist would sign a contract and they wouldn’t get any royalties; it’d go to the record companies and you’d ask them 'where are my royalties,' and the record company would say, 'Hey, here’s a Cadillac.' This is the same, old-school music business, except you don’t even get the Cadillac."
Avatar 2:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

which seems somehow related to the federal gov't delcaring that detroit doesn't have to pay out the pensions it promised to people who worked for decades
Avatar 2:53pm kat330:

I always really liked "This Is Cracker Soul" and "Low" (I think that's the title).

Avatar 2:55pm Bliss:

The detroit thing is just out and out theft.
Avatar 2:56pm kat330:

@Kenzo: Which is?

Oh, so you're going to be coyzo.
Avatar 3:02pm kat330:

So, Bliss, what so of work did you do? More importantly, what sort of work would be following your Bliss?
Avatar 3:03pm kat330:

Just one rose knows the reveal's name.
Avatar 3:07pm kat330:

@Bliss: [tap] [tap] [tap] Is this thing on?
Avatar 3:07pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My greatest hits record might just be the shows backwards. I usually like the ends best.
Avatar 3:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This was roughly the next-to-last show I made before deciding to quit forever
Avatar 3:11pm kat330:

Apparently *I'm* going to be the last to leave, and I didn't even have to wait that long.
Avatar 3:12pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

fear not, I am always the sweep
Avatar 3:14pm northguineahills:

Hey, what's going on guys??
Avatar 3:14pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hi ngh. We have just ended one thing and are beginning another.
Avatar 3:17pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I think so, duke.
Avatar 3:18pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Kathryn Beaumont is here to welcome you.
Avatar 3:23pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

33 minutes to go before I decided one more show and then I'd quit, and listening to it is making me think that perhaps I'll just finish out 2013!
Avatar 3:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I wonder what this slow thing underneath is. Must have scrawled it on a paper somewhere...
Avatar 3:28pm Bliss:

Things are always changing, and even great things end.
I hope the show goes on for years, unless you just aren't into doing it anymore.
I never thought I'd be unemployed again.

What a great pile of shows (archives) you have created and amassed.
Avatar 3:30pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

don't forget to collect unemployment!
Avatar 3:32pm Bliss:

I can't.
I quit and was denied.
The grocery store won't hire me back and they are not telling people anything positive about me.
Looks bad, to be honest.
Avatar 3:34pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I knew there was a paper. I wonder where the paper is.
Avatar 3:36pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Future show title: Impossible expectations
Avatar 3:39pm Bliss:

Sorry kat330.
I missed your question until now.

I was a NYC delivery driver/walker.

I am very open as to what I will do, but I blasted my old employer with critiques after I left and am not getting a good recommendation when people call.

Tough shit.

No complaints.
Antony has a great voice.
Avatar 3:40pm northguineahills:

Hi-Five Bliss! At my job (subcontracted through the gov't), they couldn't move any more money around, so, yesterday was my last day. However, there's an 80% chance they get the funding by the middle of January, so, I can start again, so, there's that.
