Phone callerHi, this is Yen Hung againYou told me to stay on the line, so, this is excellent. Was that me laughing? I'm not certain. Me, I was laughing? Oh, OK. Well, I was definitely laughing inside, and when I heard this one girl was laughing, you told her there was a time delay, that was pretty amazing, that she was listening to herself laughing, and laughing at herself. I'm still watching the same TV show. I do laugh, and I... I like the different sounds you mix in; it gives the feeling of synesthesia, like I said. This is great timing, the movie I was watching just ended, and there they go, the credits rolling. (Is it a pornography game show?)

Phone callerYou keep playing just enough of a song to get me excited thinking I'm about to hear it......and then it cuts off, and I think it's a different kind of appreciation of these songs that I already knew. That's kind of cool, I like it. It's almost like disappointment, but I think that's it's not all negative. It's sort of a bittersweet feeling. (Change is always negative.) Change is inevitable. The universe is made up of changes - transitions of matter from one phase to another, transitions of people from birth to death, from sickness to whatever. You may not like change, but it's there. (Change is always.) I just don't watch enough TV. (The guy before was watching a pornographic version of the Muppet Show.)

Phone callerYou blew out my mind
Phone callerI like That Guy's voiceIt's calming. I've been listening to him for a couple of years now on your show. (Have you ever tried to say something back that might change what's being said?) I'm trying now. (Sometimes I think it's a test.) I can't hear very well. Talking is scary. I like change. It's fun. Laughter. That guy says calming things, too, Ken. He's calming. (Things that make you laugh.) Maybe. Laughter. (I'm sorry, I wasn't listening.) I only called again to tell you about The Guy and how I like him. (I think there are probably a lot of people liking The Guy.) Really? I'd like to meet them. (I don't know if the guy can be met. I think the guy might meet you today.) I'll keep listening. I can get off the phone, right?

Phone callerNothing's wrongAll right, you're making me laugh, buddy. I'm eliminated.

Phone callerPortraits are to landscapes, as vocals are to instrumentals(What does it feel like being the guy?)
Phone callerI am the guy. What contains the universe?
MendyI think I've been looking for the guy for a long time, and I think actually I'm the guy.I'm the guy that I've been looking for.

KenI like being the guyI've always been the guy
Phone callerSurely laughter brings you closer to the guy
Phone callerI have to say things sometimes / The cat just fell(That guy is very far away) Laughter. I think penetrable is good, it's good so that everything is in and out, and through, and around. What do you think? I think the cat just fell. He's crying. Cat crying. He's not crying 'cause he's hurt, he cries to show that he's there. Can you hear him?

Phone callerThis is Yen Hung againWhere did I meet who? Oh, that friend of mine? Frank, I met him at this club, this, a social club. It's just sort of funny listening to myself on the radio. And, all of a sudden, it's just...this show offers so much as a, as a multisensory extravaganza as you're talking about. And I think there was this one looped track of this girl on this show that absolutely had to make me call back and say that this is, she is absolutely hilarious, and her laughter on the air makes me laugh. (That laughing machine?) (Do you always laugh when you're supposed to?)

Phone callerPortraits are to landscapes...(The guy tears down his curtain after two years of calls.) Ejaculations are to uterus contractions as fatherless is to breast feeding. I already said that. (Papers are to be read.) And written, don't forget the written. That's what I do when I listen to Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza, I write. Then I read. And it's as if the writing didn't exist. Well that's how we measure what we treasure. That's how we pleasure what we gesture. (A man, a plan, a canal: Oklahoma.)
KenThat's the guy everyone's been talking about

KenHow do we know people aren't talking to us all the time?(I can't hear them.) What if our hearing people is only our way of speaking, and we're really not listening when we think that we're hearing.

Phone callerI can explain everything. I can explain it allIn the throws of the big O, you know, the toe curling involuntary exercise, and that's so antithetical to the testosterone which causes the fight or flight tension escalation of mate bonding, and territory... But are your toes curled, and are the skies pointed towards your eyes? Do the leaves blind you with the reflection of the sunset?
