Good luck Captain!
Francis 3:11:20 PM
Allllriiiiiight!!! It's an easy procedure - don't sweat it. Everyone with advanced degrees likely has crappy eyesight
Mätt Såbbåth 3:11:35 PM
A 🦶 in front of the face
Mätt Såbbåth 3:12:18 PM
the good ol' heavy riffs
Francis 3:12:39 PM

Rofflestomp 3:13:58 PM
Vanilla? LOL
Captain Ahab (host) 3:15:07 PM

Hello Captain
Captain Ahab (host) 3:16:07 PM
Flex Luthor!
Francis 3:16:58 PM

Mätt Såbbåth 3:17:19 PM
Starflex Luthor
Colin 3:17:59 PM
it would be pretty cool if the mixed up and gave you laser eyes (that see perfectly, and have the ability to disintegrate evil ones)
DSM 3:18:18 PM
Flexseal Luthor
Captain Ahab (host) 3:18:35 PM
hahah I would not say no to laser eyes, I promise to only use them for good
Jäsön 3:19:10 PM
Lol @Colin
Rofflestomp 3:19:53 PM
@Francis, I have a cello and guitar that has been in an attic in Texas for over 30 tears. I suspect they they are about ripe. :)
Colin 3:20:01 PM
also wonders if laser eyes would be able to play cds by just looking at them
Rofflestomp 3:20:58 PM
*Years* = tears
Mätt Såbbåth 3:22:33 PM
Be rad if you got those demon eyes from Jacob's Ladder
Jäsön 3:23:33 PM
This vocalist is on fire
Captain Ahab (host) 3:24:34 PM
Jon are you at Da Barge yet?
Mätt Såbbåth 3:25:25 PM
It stains the sand red
Rofflestomp 3:27:00 PM
Does Da Barge have a hot plate?
Rofflestomp 3:28:36 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 3:28:47 PM
Rofflestomp 3:34:11 PM
How goes university Ahab? Just wishing you well on that front for sure.
Jon Solomon 3:34:28 PM
I am in Da Barge as I type!
Jon Solomon 3:34:33 PM
Sorry, running some tests...
Captain Ahab (host) 3:35:47 PM
Thanks for asking Roffle! It's going well, just unlucky that I had a bunch of overlapping deadlines this week AND happen to be getting surgery so a bit more hectic than usual, but otherwise all is good
Captain Ahab (host) 3:35:52 PM
just writing like a maniac
Captain Ahab (host) 3:36:20 PM
Jon I was just curious where Mike listened to our suggestions on what to label the dump button
Captain Ahab (host) 3:36:27 PM
was hoping you could confirm or deny lol
Captain Ahab (host) 3:36:46 PM
Jon Solomon 3:37:20 PM
Not labeled as yet...
Rofflestomp 3:37:32 PM
@Jon, When My doctor talks tests it always seems to require blood! Geez cheese wiz...
Mätt Såbbåth 3:38:12 PM
Lol Roff I stormed out of a blood test once
Mätt Såbbåth 3:39:41 PM
Dump button!
Rofflestomp 3:39:48 PM
@Mätt, I am so needle shy. Makes me nutz.
Mätt Såbbåth 3:41:07 PM
Roff I am ok w/ vaccines, tattoos, needles putting stuff in but not taking stuff out. Go figure.
Jon Solomon 3:41:36 PM
Audio tests!
Jon Solomon 3:41:40 PM
Tech tests!
Jäsön 3:41:42 PM
Crank it!
Mätt Såbbåth 3:43:38 PM
This singer sounds like a diminutive crooner from Lodi
Rofflestomp 3:44:36 PM
@Jon, Yea an RCA jack is not so bad. :)
Mätt Såbbåth 3:46:27 PM
Jon dont touch the blue wire
Francis 3:47:33 PM
rca jacks - pfft.. XLR and TRS balanced inputs are much nicer
Rofflestomp 3:48:13 PM
Never cut the blue wire! Bomb squad motto.
Mätt Såbbåth 3:48:57 PM
Goldplated tubes (choobs)
Francis 3:49:50 PM
Looking at X-rays with this kind of music always makes it seem much more intense and sinister.
Mätt Såbbåth 3:50:24 PM
I saw an xray of a girl passing gas
Rofflestomp 3:51:17 PM
@Francis, My mix board is aging gracefully. :)
Mätt Såbbåth 3:51:44 PM
Am picturing Solly upsidedown on a harness working on wiring like Tom Cruise in M.I.
Francis 3:52:44 PM
OOh - what kind of board? home studio 8 track?
Jon Solomon 3:52:56 PM
Rofflestomp 3:53:18 PM
Rofflestomp 3:53:42 PM

Mätt Såbbåth 3:55:56 PM
I knew that was coming Jason LOL
Mätt Såbbåth 4:00:34 PM
Ahab what is this dump button you speaketh of
Brian D 4:01:17 PM
For naughty words
Mätt Såbbåth 4:01:33 PM
Lalalar has a dope album cover. A scorpion afire
Captain Ahab (host) 4:01:41 PM
da dump button AKA the buck futton is a magical device sending the last 7 seconds or radio audio off into the void
Rofflestomp 4:01:44 PM
@Francis, old 16. Only missing a reel to reel. :)
Captain Ahab (host) 4:02:02 PM
before it airs, to prevent said naughty words reaching the ears of the innocents
Brian D 4:02:26 PM
15-20 seconds delay... hit the dump button if the offending words pup up in a song
Rofflestomp 4:03:15 PM
Mike did a dump test last week with Jon. LOL
Mätt Såbbåth 4:03:26 PM
Brian D 4:03:49 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:06:45 PM
Mätt Såbbåth 4:07:17 PM
Brian D 4:08:38 PM
The little audio blips again...
Jon Solomon 4:10:48 PM
Sorry. Yes. Success I think! All set to go with 50 minutes to spare.
Francis 4:11:08 PM
This sounds like it should be a Beastie Boy sample cool tune
Number 6 4:12:13 PM
Hey Cap'n I need a co host for my next 2 shows, are you available? I should be at the barge the next 2 weeks. They need to know by tonight.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:13:04 PM
Hey Number 6, I am not in the great state of NJ sadly!
Number 6 4:15:06 PM
Okay, just thought I'd ask. No problem.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:15:33 PM
good luck with your search!
Number 6 4:16:02 PM
Aye Aye!
Rofflestomp 4:16:36 PM
Check your Class C license at the door. :)
Captain Ahab (host) 4:21:29 PM

Rofflestomp 4:22:53 PM

Guelo<3 4:22:57 PM

Rofflestomp 4:23:29 PM
Ok, just don't climb the tower. :)
Brian D 4:26:29 PM
Grup Şimşek! Good stuff. That last one too
Rofflestomp 4:28:53 PM
Agreed Brian, good stuff.
Mätt Såbbåth 4:29:47 PM

Mätt Såbbåth 4:34:34 PM
Make Flex wear his hockey mask while cohosting
Rofflestomp 4:34:56 PM
Yum, yum sounds like the result of an Easter basket or Halloween bag.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:36:45 PM
forbidden candy
Rofflestomp 4:38:25 PM
IKR? Diabetes hangin' in the wings! :)
Mätt Såbbåth 4:38:32 PM
I Like Candy - MC Pee Pants
Francis 4:41:06 PM
Most sour candy is Toxic Waste. Comes in a little plastic toxic waste barrel. If you like sour, then this is the one for you. You can feel your salivary glands contracting when you try one.
Mätt Såbbåth 4:42:18 PM
I get plenty o toxic waste living in NJ
Mätt Såbbåth 4:42:56 PM
Be funny if it was really toxic waste, upcycled
Rofflestomp 4:44:00 PM
Scary candy? Geez... Of course.
Mätt Såbbåth 4:45:18 PM
I was just watching Zombie's Halloween remake where Young Michael M eats a Circus Peanut before his first rampage
Jon Solomon 4:50:40 PM
Quality groove here!
Rofflestomp 4:50:50 PM
Loved this show Ahab. Rather way okay. Thanks.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:51:09 PM

Mätt Såbbåth 4:51:19 PM
SPACE CAMEL! Apparently Turkey has no camels
Captain Ahab (host) 4:51:24 PM
These guys are from Tel Aviv, not Turkey but still ahah
Captain Ahab (host) 4:51:36 PM
yeah camels aren't really a thing there
Captain Ahab (host) 4:51:54 PM
maybe as a touristy thing in some cities, but it's not really camel climate
Mätt Såbbåth 4:54:01 PM
There's a book called Space Walrus
Rofflestomp 4:55:39 PM
Camels are not permitted at the wall. lol
Mätt Såbbåth 4:57:37 PM
