Travis (Sur Tizzle) 3:06:09 PM
Maybe you can broadcast from the basement of the Alamo sometime
Mattsabbath 3:09:18 PM
Broadcast using a 2600 frequency Cap'n Crunçh whistle
Captain Ahab (host) 3:09:51 PM
lol travis why not!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:10:11 PM
I mean if I can broadcast from british military bases then i mean
Mattsabbath 3:10:18 PM
My coworker's name is Maxine so I played her the Green Lung song
Captain Ahab (host) 3:14:03 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 3:14:17 PM
the only context in which my name appears in songs is in anatolian rock lol
Mattsabbath 3:15:43 PM
You also appear in the 2nd best American novel after Blood Meridian.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:15:51 PM
Colin 3:17:25 PM
new Kvelertak!!
Jon Solomon 3:19:44 PM
Having a strangely tired Wednesday, so hopefully today's show is the sonic kick I need!
DSM 3:21:22 PM
Kvelertak definitely got my energy up
Parrscream 3:21:40 PM
Good afternoon Captain!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:21:48 PM
hey Jon! Hope i can deliver
Captain Ahab (host) 3:21:59 PM
hi Parrscream, how's it kicking
Jon Solomon 3:22:38 PM
Estoner sounds like a failed late 90s start-up.
Jon Solomon 3:23:12 PM
"The founders of pets.com went on to launch Estoner, which closed within the year..."
Parrscream 3:23:34 PM
It has been kicked into high gear Ahab! Just got back from PT.... feeling good!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:23:39 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 3:23:43 PM

Mattsabbath 3:26:32 PM
I am from Caspiar, an island in the Mediterranean. It sunk. - Latka Gravas
Mattsabbath 3:39:24 PM
Erf doesnt come with an operating manual, silly Humulus
Jäsön 3:41:29 PM
Hey all you wild cruisers.
Mattsabbath 3:42:25 PM
Wild, man, wild.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:56:29 PM
hey Jason
Mattsabbath 4:01:44 PM
Ah yes. Bucky balls.
Bud Burroughs 4:03:37 PM
Oooh, if you're genuinely not familiar with Buckminster Fuller, you've got some fun reading ahead of you. Admittedly, I've only scratched the surface of his output.
Mattsabbath 4:05:46 PM
Fuller is on a US stamp
Mattsabbath 4:07:28 PM
Bob Belch
Captain Ahab (host) 4:08:36 PM
hey Bud, yeah I'd not encountered him before chasing down this reference
iamthelabhras 4:10:34 PM
Fuller...wasn't he the bedwetter in Home Alone?
Ossy 4:11:43 PM
Hi Ahab
Captain Ahab (host) 4:12:10 PM
sup Ossy
Bud Burroughs 4:12:19 PM
He was a sort of inventor/futurist/author/philosopher/architect, etc.
Bud Burroughs 4:12:39 PM
Loving the show, as always, by the way.
Jon Solomon 4:13:53 PM
20 minute instrumentals are THE PERFECT TIME to do your Duolingo (spoken from experience).
Captain Ahab (host) 4:14:21 PM
thanks Bud!
Captain Ahab (host) 4:14:28 PM
also lol Jon
Captain Ahab (host) 4:17:40 PM
ok duolingo streak preserved
Bud Burroughs 4:20:28 PM
I don't mean to brag (yes I do), but my Duolingo streak currently stands at 355 days.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:20:41 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:20:47 PM
im only at 35
Mattsabbath 4:22:07 PM
I got frustrated w/ duolingo pedagogy for Dutch and gave up LOL
Mattsabbath 4:27:57 PM
the mighty downtuned Slomatics ads innit
Mattsabbath 4:28:03 PM
Bud Burroughs 4:28:45 PM
I think my biggest complaint about Duolingo is that it carefully taught me a Spanish verb meaning "to take" without bothering to mention that it's a very vulgar term in most of Latin and South America!
Captain Ahab (host) 4:28:57 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:29:17 PM
minor detail
Bud Burroughs 4:29:41 PM
Fortunately I never actually tried to use it :)
Mattsabbath 4:29:42 PM
Duolingo dumbs things down too & I hate that trend in society
Bud Burroughs 4:30:29 PM
I use it for the basics, and supplement it with lots of additional reading about the intricacies of the language.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:30:56 PM
thats the best way i reckon
Mattsabbath 4:30:58 PM
Nice Bud
Mattsabbath 4:34:05 PM
These folx be Goblinesque
Jäsön 4:37:04 PM
music = victory/Time
Captain Ahab (host) 4:37:37 PM
Mattsabbath 4:40:04 PM
Time the Conqueror - Jackson Browne
Jäsön 4:44:25 PM
I would've thought this was from 1974 prog era if I didn't see the 2023 in the songlist.
Ira Te Mix 4:45:07 PM
Wow, what a cool mid 70’s prog sounding song!
Bud Burroughs 4:45:36 PM
Same here. I'm really digging this band I've never heard of and have no idea how to pronounce!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 4:45:59 PM
😺 Did someone say prog?
Mattsabbath 4:45:59 PM
postmodernism in the house
Mattsabbath 4:46:25 PM
Travis (Sur Tizzle) 4:47:03 PM
Definitely some Yes and undertones in here.
Ira Te Mix 4:47:17 PM
And this great following the always awesome sunwatchers
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 4:47:20 PM
Jordsjø been around since 2014 only
Captain Ahab (host) 4:48:26 PM
oh hey Dave!
Mike Tropiano 4:48:44 PM
Digging the proggy vibe, thought maybe another Anatolia hour was brewin
Jäsön 4:48:57 PM
I still marvel at how Dave has his name upside down.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 4:49:26 PM
Good evening, folks
Mattsabbath 4:49:50 PM
I'm still learning how to use my wooden mortar & pestle
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 4:50:04 PM
Jäsön 4:51:06 PM
Not the typical Desert Cruising set, but very enjoyable.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:52:42 PM
hey Mike, yeah we are overdue another anatolian hour i suppose
Mattsabbath 4:53:33 PM
Still learning how to use my wooden satellite
Mike Tropiano 4:55:21 PM
It's always a welcome diversion. Coming from an immigrant family, I always am fascinated how American culture gets remained and syncretized with other cultures.
Brian D 4:55:57 PM
... flat circles.. all about
Mike Tropiano 4:56:02 PM
reimagined...damn autocorrect
Mattsabbath 4:57:05 PM
Yawning Belch
Mike Tropiano 4:58:02 PM
