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

Listen now, or skip ahead to the relevant monologue: wfmu.org...

Say a thing, here, if you like:

A thing. There, I said it.
Avatar 5:03pm northguineahills:

I'm not sure what timeline or where I am, so it doesn't really matter,,,

The thing is...
Avatar 5:06pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Is, the thing. Hi!
Avatar 5:07pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The app seems to know what sample is playing and I kinda don't understand how it knows.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 5:07pm david w:

Is a loop a thing or an anti-thing?
Avatar 5:08pm WR:

I've been informed I should be here now so I am trying to be here now. So far so good.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:08pm chresti:

Another thing, hello.
Avatar 5:10pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

You are or I am we are. Welcome, chresti, northguineahills, david w, and WR!

hullo Ken and fellow listeners! Happy to be here.

Hi Luca!!!

Welcome back, Isa!

Thank you! Sounds beautiful, with the wind here!
Avatar 5:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Here's ifny.
Avatar 5:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It looks like an essay, the transcript. I'd never have read such a thing if it had been handed to me.
  Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 5:50pm Isa:

You mean you just started speaking... and that's what came out?
Avatar 5:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

That's it. As I said in the first sentence, "if I had something to say...," because I knew I didn't. I just turned on the mic and tried. By sentence 3, huh, there's something, all right...
  5:52pm kate:

hi ken!
Avatar 5:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I wouldn't have even done the show at all except I'm scheduled to. So, surprise, every little bit of all of this, this is what happens when one gets out of one's way.
Avatar 5:52pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

kate, hi!
  Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 5:53pm Isa:

Big Magic!!!
Avatar 5:54pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

When we speak up even though we believe we have no voice, no permission, no expertise, no support...
  Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 5:58pm Isa:

You got support here, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Carmichael:

Heya Kenzo and hep cats.
Avatar 6:05pm WR:

What is email to send aud clip to you?
Avatar 6:08pm WR:

Or I can do the FMU contact process. I'm just too slow to grab the address when it was announced.
Avatar 6:10pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I most often don't believe I have support. Belief is everything. A lot of people have a lot more power than they believe. Lessons start early, run deep.
Avatar 6:10pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Avatar 6:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

A crowd of people will stand by and let two people do great harm, because each person in the crowd believes they don't have enough power to stop those two people.
  6:17pm Miranda:

And they believe someone else will stop them; or worse, that it must be wrong to stop them because no one else is doing it.
Avatar 6:18pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Decorum.
Avatar 6:20pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It's not polite to point (out truths).
  6:22pm Miranda:

I'll be there for you as you learn rudeness, Ken.
Avatar 6:22pm WR:

What I sent is of little content of low value unless you are able to drop it into a point where it might have a context in others POV.
Avatar 6:23pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

(and low volume, to boot) thanks!
  Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 6:28pm Isa:

Or that they will be next at suffering from the same harm
Avatar 6:28pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh I just remembered a show from around 1995, where I had some Malcolm X speeches on reel-to-reel tapes, and I was live mixing them with a sampling machine and production studio console and dancing.
Avatar 6:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Isa Because, like them until that point, nobody will join in and become the powerful mass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Aitch:

Only noticed your show recently, the alt streams on WFMU generally, very interesting. Watching the USA unravel from afar (Sydney) very disturbing.
Avatar 6:31pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

...watching the unravel get closer to the surface...
Avatar 6:32pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hi, Carmichael, WR, and Aitch!
  Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 6:35pm Isa:

Sometimes somebody reacts with great courage, even without support. Thank you for speaking Ken.
  6:36pm Miranda:

@Aitch I'd argue the USA has been this unraveled the whole time. Yes, just getting closer to the externally visible surfaces.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Aitch:

If the whole Trump fiasco does anything positive it's the overdue revolution in the way (at least some people) think, as horrible as the actuality is.
Looking at the French solution in 1793, they gave you that statue for a reason.
Avatar 6:40pm WR:

RE: your comment about people standing by waiting for approval from others before doing something; this is very much a generalization but have experienced instances of individuals who speak up right away. And can recall tragic instance a year or so ago in the northwest USA when some men were murdered by a racist who was harassing two women of color and they spoke up. It is scary out there.
Avatar 6:45pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Yes, individuals are not always that powerful.
Avatar 6:46pm WR:

But yes, most often people lower their eyes and avoid conflict. PS: Malcom X was such an amazing human. Words spoken to public resonating forward and backward for the history of this country.
Avatar 6:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

So so so so so many individuals could be enmassing.
Avatar 6:54pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This MUST be the beginning.
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

That's what HE said!
  Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 6:57pm Isa:

Ciao, something is beginning
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

WR: are you referring to the incident in Portland? That was horrible, i remember.
Avatar 6:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This is where you came in, GST. (The beginning, is here, the archive link, it plays.)
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

We'll always be together in electric dreams
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 6:59pm chresti:

Thank you for this thing, Kenzo!
Avatar Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza supporter Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

And so it begins…
Avatar 7:00pm WR:

Yes GST.

Thank you Kenzo

Thanks for the collage to the message today, catching the archive. Had me humming Ochs' "Small Circle of Friends" at one point. Cheers Kenzo!
