Hi Sky Cap'n! It's tough, but being rudeness over-matched by a European is tough, but the English still got some game it appears.
Happy Thursday folks!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:35:04 PM
hey Roffle!
Colin 3:48:42 PM

Captain Ahab (host) 3:49:10 PM

Rob from Maryland 3:50:07 PM
Thanks, Captain, for the name of the bird sanctuary. It's not in a place that I visited when I was in England many many years ago
Colin 3:55:39 PM
yeah this 3 hurel album is packed full of rippers.
Colin 3:58:27 PM
when my friends ask me to put on music, guess what album they are gonna get to hear....
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:59:04 PM

Great stuffs! 🎶🎵 @DJ Captain Ahab!
Colin 4:01:45 PM
Also, The best of brittney spears is probably better than a lot of us would expect. mid-era brittney had some bangers.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:04:17 PM
Leave Brittttney LOUD!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:06:14 PM

Boiled potato?
Li Maria 4:15:51 PM
Hello, DJ Captain Ahab! Love the Anatolian rock <3 My son pointed out how similar that one 3 Hurel album cover is to a Motorhead album cover. 3 Hurel was first, I think
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:18:14 PM
Battered&Fried Stick O’ Butter 🧈⁉️
Brian D 4:18:50 PM
Ahh it seems like it is one of the many seasoned salts blends (like Lawry's etc). Aka "chip spice" or "American Chip Spice". Prob has paprika & msg etc
Captain Ahab (host) 4:19:35 PM
Hi Li! Thanks for stopping by, and great point about the Motorhead album, your son rocks
Brian D 4:24:35 PM
This is a most excellent edition Captain!
Ambrose Hughes 4:26:09 PM

Captain Ahab (host) 4:29:17 PM
MrM this song is very spooky and makes me think of you
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:30:00 PM
Mwahahaha! 💀 this song is part of my Skullture!
Colin 4:30:04 PM
also, off the subject of everything in today's chat. I saw a fox attempting to catch two momma turkeys and their poults yesterday.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:30:21 PM
noooo we love the poults
Captain Ahab (host) 4:30:26 PM
but i guess foxes gotta eat
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:30:45 PM
Wow! The Circle Of LIFE!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:30:57 PM
And Death.
Colin 4:31:01 PM
mrm has a plan and theme song
This set falls well within the parameters of 'Groovy man'.
Colin 4:31:47 PM
all the poults surprised me and flew up into the tree while the parents made noise and ran the other way.
Colin 4:32:05 PM
they were tiny and I was not expecting them to be able to fly yet.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:32:14 PM
parents were trying to draw away the foxes mayhaps
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:33:08 PM
They didn’t know they could fly yet until foxes happened!
Colin 4:33:11 PM
it was an east coast version of roadrunner and coyote. turkey and the fox.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:33:34 PM
🦃 🦃 🦊
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:34:55 PM
Were they Turkish turkeys?? Why else would you bring this subject before us?? 🇹🇷
Captain Ahab (host) 4:36:38 PM
oh snap yeah lol ok as the resident Turk I'm allowed to say this, I think the whole name change to Türkiye is........SILLY
Captain Ahab (host) 4:36:55 PM
what am i now, Türkish?
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:37:18 PM
What’s all this about??
Captain Ahab (host) 4:38:05 PM
Turkey petitioned for their official English name to be Türkiye not Turkey
Captain Ahab (host) 4:38:12 PM
(the same as they call it in Turkish)
Captain Ahab (host) 4:38:29 PM
bc they didn't like that in English we have an animal called Turkey
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:38:40 PM
Oh. Interesting. Hmmm. Oh. Haha.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:38:47 PM
except what do about all the related terms, Turk, Turkish, etc
Captain Ahab (host) 4:39:04 PM
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:39:07 PM
Is Turk offensive?
Captain Ahab (host) 4:39:10 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:39:15 PM
but it's not consistent!
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:39:15 PM
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:40:42 PM
Türkiye is the accurate way to spell and stylize it in Turkish?
Captain Ahab (host) 4:40:51 PM
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:41:14 PM
Why don’t you co-sign?
Captain Ahab (host) 4:41:17 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:41:34 PM
yeah the UN forgot to ask my opinion
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:41:40 PM
Too silly just because of turkey 🦃?
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:41:51 PM
No I’m being serious lol
Colin 4:42:31 PM
I just looked that up. didn't know it was a thing. my buddy is leaving for Mongolia tomorrow with a short day or two stop over in Istanbul. I'm curious to see what the passport stamp will read.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:42:39 PM
It’s a more accurate way to write it. Is it pronounced differently?
Ben Franklin championed the idea of the turkey being our national symbol vs the eagle. Go figure.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:43:25 PM
This chat rn af
Captain Ahab (host) 4:43:36 PM
We don't refer to Germany as Deutschland
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:44:05 PM
Mmmmm yes.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:44:09 PM
Turkey was just the English name for it thanks to the british, it wasn't like "hey folks let's call this country Turkey like the bird lol"
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:44:29 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:44:37 PM
yeah it's pronounced Tür - key - yeh
Colin 4:44:57 PM
it's funny how ego makes people do questionable stuff.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:45:05 PM
You’re killing me Smalls
Colin 4:45:26 PM
the US-AYEEEE has lots of ego.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:46:06 PM
Ankara to Izmir is my favorite Jerry Douglas tune. :)
If you never heard it, treat yourself.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:49:03 PM
I like that packaging/labels for those 45s
Captain Ahab (host) 4:49:38 PM
the checkerboard ballerinas? yeah they're neat
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:50:43 PM

-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:53:56 PM
Cheers, ROFFLESTOMP! Hi, DJ Dana K!
Rob from Maryland 4:54:19 PM
The bird is called turkey because English naturalists thought that the bird came from the Ottoman Empire rather than North America
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 4:55:10 PM
Ah. Curious.
Rob from Maryland 4:55:26 PM
Did y'all see this? https://www.change.org/p/change-the-name-of-the-bird-turkey-to-t%C3%BCrkiye
