Good call on the flat turkey . Spatch is the way
Moth Sabbath 3:11:11 PM
Put the turkey in yer backpack and hoofit
Jon Solomon 3:11:25 PM
I once went to WPRB DJ Jen's apartment the day after Thanksgiving and the turkey stock she was making was so intense I had to go outside.
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:11:32 PM
Oh GO Canada! Cover those BelgianWaffles in Canadian Maple Syrup! Huh? Wait. L0LZ
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:12:57 PM
Outside?? Clearly not a chef. Outstanding DJ tho!
Jon Solomon 3:14:02 PM
It was a concentrated turkey smell that completely overpowered me.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:14:25 PM
I can imagine the smell was intense if you've been a vegetarian for so long!
Moth Sabbath 3:14:56 PM
if you fancy a request, Ahab, would love to hear Ice Dragon, Kal-El, or "rumours of war" by HoF
Moth Sabbath 3:15:18 PM
I englishised the "rumor" part
Brian D 3:16:08 PM
We just had chicken dinner for lunch today with my wife's mom. The practice bird (and my preferred bird). My mom's tomorrow for the other kind of bird (everybody's heard...)
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:16:19 PM

Jive Turkey by Ohio Players still echoing in my ears. Way to let that play all the way through btw
Captain Ahab (host) 3:17:37 PM
I think that can be arranged Moth Sabbath
Moth Sabbath 3:17:59 PM
I am eating Jamaican meat patty and watching Revenge of the Ninja on T'giving so I will claim First Prize now 🏆 many thanks
Moth Sabbath 3:20:02 PM
Revenge of the Ninja, in which a MILF whoops a ninja's son and then, basically, casually shows him her bush, it was 1983 and things were f'd up, dont blame the messenger
Moth Sabbath 3:21:02 PM
If we all ate Jamaican food and watched ninja movies on T'giving, America would finally heal
-ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ-💀 3:21:04 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 3:21:31 PM
lol is indeed the response
Brian D 3:24:55 PM
Sounds knda like Private Lessons with ninjas but not i guess
Moth Sabbath 3:25:11 PM
If I may be an obnox doom music lover, the "necromancer" in stoner rock goes back to Rush's STONEY mid-70s album Caress of Steel, which doesn't get enough love
Jon Solomon 3:25:21 PM
I'd watch a movie called Private Lessons With Ninjas. 100%.
Moth Sabbath 3:25:41 PM
Brian D 3:26:31 PM
The Triplets Will Rain Down!
Moth Sabbath 3:26:46 PM
yessssssssss battle growls are bringing me back to life
Moth Sabbath 3:27:46 PM
In all seriousness, the 3rd act ninja battle in Revenge of the Ninja atop a building in Salt Lake City (!) is FIRE
Moth Sabbath 3:28:31 PM
Thank you DJ! Dubya prb forevah
Brian D 3:30:14 PM
Guitar Tone wow!
Moth Sabbath 3:30:51 PM
The "tone bone!" as Red Fang once noted 😂
Moth Sabbath 3:31:19 PM
Bass tone too!!
Brian D 3:31:50 PM
DiSNORTion pedal by Pigtronix. I have one!
Moth Sabbath 3:32:29 PM
oh chit Ahab, I felt bad, I bore the bad news to Flex that The Sword no longer cleave
Moth Sabbath 3:32:48 PM
Nice Brian!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:32:52 PM
oh yeah that made me sad
Moth Sabbath 3:33:09 PM
Flex was bummed
Moth Sabbath 3:33:53 PM
but he soldiered on, following the riffs to the smokefilled land
Moth Sabbath 3:34:18 PM
Er, reverse that
Captain Ahab (host) 3:35:15 PM
lol it goes both ways methinks
Moth Sabbath 3:36:45 PM
I saw footage of Pike vs Automation playing and Matt had a Gibson Explorer, was jarring
Brian D 3:37:22 PM
I had a ToneBone pedal too by Radial.
Moth Sabbath 3:37:31 PM
But he was shirtless thus identifiable 😓
Moth Sabbath 3:38:22 PM
Love the pedal shop talk, Brian 👍 I alas only have a fuzz pedal
Brian D 3:39:58 PM
Just got the alert for this Liquefied from Bandcamp
Moth Sabbath 3:40:31 PM
Brian D 3:40:37 PM
Liquify that is
Moth Sabbath 3:40:50 PM
that is some deepfried tonage
Moth Sabbath 3:41:14 PM
like how Johnny Cash took his steak, burnt crisp
Moth Sabbath 3:44:04 PM
Brian are you a compression fan?
Brian D 3:45:45 PM
Wow. Gotta get this
Moth Sabbath 3:46:09 PM
Yeah this amazing
Moth Sabbath 3:46:50 PM
I love trick ending songs
Moth Sabbath 3:48:14 PM
My friend's college band had a song with a false ending that got. Us. Every. Time.
Jon Solomon 3:48:35 PM
Wonder how much longer it would have gone on without the fade they put in!
Brian D 3:48:45 PM
I have an Ibanez comp pedal prob from 80s... eBay score. Put it at the front of line. I like comp pedal ya. Not referring to compression in studios, production etc
Captain Ahab (host) 3:49:07 PM
haha yeah i had my right earplug out and was like 'wait has the song ended?? sike'
Moth Sabbath 3:49:28 PM
Gotcha Brian, I concur
Moth Sabbath 3:50:56 PM
Brian, Prong's first album is the most compressed studio recording I've ever heard, but it kinda mostly works
Moth Sabbath 3:52:21 PM
and I love the dry compression on QOTSA'S SftD 🏜️
Brian D 3:53:04 PM
Never bought too many distortion or fuzz pedals but a few... usually the amp itself pie vol distortion is great. And a basic dist pedal for a boost on leads etc. My one band mate bought pedals like candy. Gtr Center must've had a picture of him behind the register "BEWARE OF MANY RETURNS AND EXCHANGES!!"
Moth Sabbath 3:53:29 PM
Pedal junkie
Moth Sabbath 3:54:31 PM
I saw a dope story on youtube of someone stealing Matt Pike's pedal and a fucking POSSE ran the dude down, frontier justice 😂🏜️🤠
Brian D 3:55:40 PM
I'd get to practice at his house and notice the new toy(s) that week and say "Hey when did you get ---" and was immediately cut off by him saying "SHHHHHH.... (whispers and hand gestures about his wife in other room not knowing about said purchases...)"
Moth Sabbath 3:56:11 PM
HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! Covert pedal-ing
C🦃lin 3:56:45 PM
As a bass player I have only bought distortion or fuzz pedals. I use them actually on synths and drum machines more tho.
Moth Sabbath 3:57:12 PM
Colin NICE!!
Moth Sabbath 3:59:31 PM
I was readin about Al Cisneros running his bass direct into studio soundboard/mixer then EQing it afterward
C🦃lin 3:59:40 PM
this past year I played some shows with a doom/stoner band so I actually used my two pedal board (two different fuzz pedals) on stage. I was definitely the odd man out, all those other bass players had a minimum of 8 pedals on their boards.
Moth Sabbath 4:00:41 PM
Moth Sabbath 4:01:30 PM
There should be a checkpoint like TSA where you have to declare all yer pedals (Mad Max Thunderdome moment when he pulls out 17 hidden weapons)
Moth Sabbath 4:02:16 PM
Brian D 4:02:24 PM
8PDLNV license plate
Moth Sabbath 4:02:40 PM
"This band has a 2-pedal minimum policy"
Brian D 4:04:32 PM
Ya Spinal Tap exaggerated scene like the wall of amps n cabs in the Majesty of Rock video... have a pedal board that is the entire stage....
Moth Sabbath 4:04:40 PM
Fu Manchu still make all their demos with one mic and a 4-track
Moth Sabbath 4:04:52 PM
Moth Sabbath 4:06:10 PM
Hocus pocus drive with focus
C🦃lin 4:06:14 PM
When I first started playing with those guys I was only using the built in amp overdrive and one day the Lead singer showed up with a mini pedal board for me. He was struggling with my simplicity i guess.
Moth Sabbath 4:06:35 PM
Brian D 4:06:40 PM
And it feels so real you can feel the feeling! We're in this together and ever! Darning of socks and scoring of goals (current! )

I just got Vampire's Kiss on dvd from the dollar store-- Cage eats a live cockroach on camera!!
Brian D 4:09:21 PM
Jim Carrey's spoof auto biography book has some great Nic Cage moments. Funny book
Moth Sabbath 4:09:59 PM
Cage spends the entire third act of MANDY with a bloodcovered face and basically mute 😂

Face Off is the worst movie. But also hilarious
Captain Ahab (host) 4:13:21 PM
I know right
Moth Sabbath 4:13:42 PM
love those types of movies @stitchingp
Captain Ahab (host) 4:13:48 PM
I guessed the plot in like the first 20 minutes lol
StitchingPink💖 4:14:04 PM
I actually remember where I was sitting in the theater when I PAID GOOD MONEY to see it. Lol
Captain Ahab (host) 4:14:09 PM
Jon Solomon 4:14:44 PM
I too saw Face/Off in the theater!
C🦃lin 4:14:55 PM
I witnessed the fact that those tiny polts can fly! I saw a fox stalking two adults with polts over the summer and the little ones flew up into low trees while the adults made noise and ran the opposite way.
StitchingPink💖 4:15:01 PM
My brother and I were just talking about it as we saw it together. Good times.
Moth Sabbath 4:15:17 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:15:31 PM
haha Colin! the big birds can fly too actually, they fly up into the trees around sunset
Captain Ahab (host) 4:15:49 PM
but I wouldnt have believed it had I not seen it!
C🦃lin 4:16:38 PM
Yeah, the first time I saw the adults fly it pretty much looked like a big ol trash bag gracefully taking wing into the trees.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:17:35 PM
That is a perfect description
Captain Ahab (host) 4:17:42 PM
StitchingPink💖 4:17:43 PM
Martha’s vineyard has wild turkeys everywhere to control the ticks. The babies are adorable.
Jason DiVirgilio 4:17:50 PM
There were some nasty turkeys patrolling the parking lot when I was working in Monroe, NJ. They would see their reflections in some of the cars and peck at the reflection. Good times.
Moth Sabbath 4:18:17 PM
Haaaaaaaaa Colin
StitchingPink💖 4:18:22 PM
Here in NJ the turkey vultures are terrifying
Moth Sabbath 4:18:36 PM
Lol Rocky Road
Moth Sabbath 4:19:09 PM
The vultures here are actually shy, but you can hear em and smell em
Moth Sabbath 4:19:58 PM
Nothing gets out Dope Skum like Oxyclean (yelling in Aussie accent)
Captain Ahab (host) 4:20:12 PM

Moth Sabbath 4:23:03 PM

Moth Sabbath 4:23:44 PM

Jason DiVirgilio 4:24:03 PM
Motherfolker would be a good band name.
Moth Sabbath 4:24:28 PM
Moth Sabbath 4:26:26 PM
There is an adorable vid on the tiktok of a girl doing the stankface to riffs in all aspects of her life, dishes, brushing teeth, typing, just sitting still 🤣
Moth Sabbath 4:27:01 PM
resting stankriff face, new syndrome
C🦃lin 4:28:07 PM
lol, I suffer from RSrF
Captain Ahab (host) 4:28:19 PM
maybe doctor doom can write a prescription
Captain Ahab (host) 4:28:49 PM
resting round mouth riff threat
C🦃lin 4:29:10 PM
doctor doom don't write prescriptions, doctor doom shreds prescriptions!
