GM all, made it though the wind and rain, ready to work and listen.

Come, look over this bit of real estate. Swim in it like a...human bird-monkey crab. As your face shrinks into nothingness in reaction, you'll see things that look like they don't go together, but the headlines are misleading, as even a dog could see. It's just a ballet of color distortion that only the slothful would monkey around in. All in all, a humanitarian nightmare. Do we have a sale?

-Ken, have you started to select these to see how I'll put them in words or context?

FoFo, yes, I missed last week, had to sit in a room with boring people - it really is much better to be here!

Ken, you deserve a break, but have you thought of the damage that will be done to the world not having your show on the air for 6 months? There is going to be a lot less entertainment in the world. The stock market will likely crash because of it. Just some things to consider.

Do you have a good place to rant we can follow? …and how about a weekly historic Ken Show for us to listen-to and natter to each other about, maybe playing on another stream, maybe _not_ at 09:00 Eastern so as not to draw us away from Scott's show.

Speaking of hoes, does anyone remember the Corner Gas episode where the town erected a statue of a giant hoe so they could bill themselves as 'home of the biggest hoe' in an effort to beat out (spits) Wullerton?

thanks :)
Avatar 11:47am Jeff Moore:

Okay, that was kind of freaky.

I put down Ted the Dog's food bowl just before Ken potted up David Crosby Eating Pizza, and for awhile there I couldn't tell which glomping and smacking was which.

@Jeff: It’s a hate crime to compare your dog to David Crosby.

That will be my mantra through the long, cold, miserable winter.

Needle Exchange - 1990s on Astor Place, minding my own bee's wax and 2 dudes asked me where was the Needle Excahange??? 20 blocks away?? What do I lok like???
Last week, visiting my dying mother in hospice, leaving the place 55/2ndAve Bklyn, a woman asks me where "can I score????" What the fuck do I look like????

Just had someone cover my spot at work while i ran out, she asked if i aware of the really creepy music playing out of my computer

Don't play that saw too much, you're going to need it for Crosby's liposuction

@Asheville - I got Jan Terri to call my brother on his bday. I sure won that year

Where does this David Crosby eating stuff come from? A Google search and a search of WFMU's artist archives doesn't show me anything
Avatar 11:50am Carmichael:

I just got up to get some tea, and missed all the Ken will be gone talk. WTF is happening? Who's taking your place, Kenneth?
  11:50am FҵFҵ (:


You have to promise us, under oath, you are coming back to do your show...dead or alive but you#ll be coming back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51am maestroso:

Wow, go out of range for a few hours and what happens? Hope you have a good break Ken and return refreshed!
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:51am AnAnonymousParty:

Ken is taking a break to build a second shed he can call himself "Ken, two sheds, Freedman".
  11:51am Sam:

I think Crosby butt dialed Ken by mistake while he was eating
  11:51am JakeGould:

@Morphe: 55th Street and 2nd Avenue in Brooklyn is the heart of Sunset Park’s dopeville. One time I was exploring the neighhorhood and just walking on 54th Street or so and every other person said to me “Good day, sir…” then I realized I was the only white guy there so they were testing me.

Jeesh was everyone doing H in alphabet city in the early 90s?

Start putting money aside now and you'll have a big lump available when it's time to soak Andy during the marathon.

Can we hear Larry one more time? "Hello, Ken. This is Larry."
Avatar 11:52am Jeff Moore:

That Jim Leonard is a fine saw player, but we should give Natalia Paruz's recordings some air time whenever possible – she's a friend of the station! She showed up for 7SD in think twice.
Avatar 11:52am Linda Lee:

wasn't 20 blocks away. just about 8 or 9 blocks, iirc.
record purity counts at the time. something like 30%.
Avatar 11:52am Rev. Turnip Druid:

@carm: likewise am piecing it together.
I think I'll be sculpting my memorial to CUPCAKE DOG this evening..
  11:52am JakeGould:

@PlanetTyler: Nope. Lots of people were doing herin in Brighton Beach at the time. Neil Simon ain’t gonna talk about that “memoir” but “Requiem for a Dream” sheds light on that.

I recently realized that the record smashing gif is from "Its a Wonderful Life"...

"first time..." make me think of ringo's "photograph" - my friend took the line "everytime i see yr face" and followed it with "it makes me think if yr part of the human race"

Oh my. Does this Cash song have a pedal steel solo?
  11:54am JakeGould:

Oh, and I found an empty bottle of Oxy last night on one of my late night constitutionals in Bay Ridge. Drugs be everywhere folks!
  11:55am Morphe:

What???? Ken is going on hiatus ??????
  11:55am FҵFҵ (:

Soak Andy?! Who wants to soack Andy? AHEM! I think you meant to say 'soak Ken'! Not that I'm angry at your departure, Ken! You know I love you!

*whispering* soak him hard and repeatedly, people!
Avatar 11:56am Linda Lee:

in the 90s you could actually take a shot & you weren't likely to kick off.
100 years' prohibition on narcotics as of 2014. talk about successful!

I found why Ken's leaving! He is already telling us! Is on the playlist! Read the first letters of every song on the playlist! The message is encoded there!
