It is Wednesday once again!
Mattsabbath 3:03:38 PM
Slomatics ripoff? 🤔
Jon Solomon 3:04:09 PM
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:04:21 PM
Hello hello hello hello hello
Mattsabbath 3:04:22 PM
They didn't put much energy into a band name LOL
Captain Ahab (host) 3:04:34 PM
tough crowd!
Mattsabbath 3:05:09 PM
You know it. Keep standards high.
Mattsabbath 3:07:13 PM
Just wait til you git in the classroom & see the vacant gazes and hear the crickets!
zeroo 3:08:27 PM
finally I catch this show! not the captain ahab of not not fun records! cool ready for this woo
Jon Solomon 3:09:31 PM
The Breeders playing "summer is ready when you are" in Philly last week on the last day of summer was unintentionally cruel...
Captain Ahab (host) 3:11:09 PM
that's just mean
Mattsabbath 3:11:10 PM
Ween played "The HIV Song" in San Francisco in 1994. Those dudes are dark.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:11:20 PM
hi zero!
Jäsön 3:17:53 PM
Hey all.
Mattsabbath 3:19:38 PM
Mattsabbath 3:20:30 PM
When you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:20:40 PM
hey Jason
Jäsön 3:20:53 PM
Instagram hates me...i get DesertCruising notifications 10 minutes after the shows end. Like Monday.
Mattsabbath 3:21:15 PM
Jäsön 3:21:51 PM
It's probably listening to me say how much I hate Instagram throughout the day.
Mattsabbath 3:22:41 PM
The only thing Zuckerberg loves is bbq sauce to run his diodes.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:23:37 PM
yeah, I dunno when's best to post really, the day before perhaps
Mattsabbath 3:26:42 PM
I just write stuff on me hand
Jäsön 3:26:45 PM
I figure it's my lack of activity on the app. It knows to depriortize my notifications.
Mattsabbath 3:27:26 PM
And then I can't read my writing
Jäsön 3:27:47 PM
I'm guilty of assigning all kinds of human traits to the various "algorithms" of our favorite social media apps.
Mattsabbath 3:28:15 PM
Jäsön we're gonna need you to be on Insta more
Jäsön 3:29:51 PM
lol. I expect, because of this online conversation, that i will see Instagram ads on YouTube and Twitter now.
Mattsabbath 3:30:06 PM
and those umlauts confuse the almighty A.I.
Jäsön 3:31:39 PM
Cool opening guitar riff...new show theme idea: Songs that have news or movie-clip audio.
Mattsabbath 3:31:56 PM
New chunes Ahab! You keep me hip & up to date. Wprb in general too
Mattsabbath 3:32:33 PM
Jäsön that is a dope idea. I love samples in songs
Captain Ahab (host) 3:33:07 PM
Yeah I'd love to do something like that, feels tedious to dig them all up though, hard thing to search for
Mattsabbath 3:34:48 PM
Pike vs Automaton has samples, Bongzilla sometimes, yeah it'd be a project/rabbithole. Bongzilla has a song called "Edibles" and it samples people laughing. Lol
Mattsabbath 3:36:04 PM
Cannabis Convention in Edison NJ this Friday & weekend, folx. Cheech is keynote speaker.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:36:33 PM
speaking of bongzilla
Jäsön 3:36:45 PM
Great timing!
Mattsabbath 3:36:58 PM
speak o' the devil
Mattsabbath 3:42:18 PM
Where is this Dab City? I need to visit.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:42:36 PM
Is named after Madison, Wisconsin aka Mad City
Captain Ahab (host) 3:42:47 PM
or an homage rather
Mattsabbath 3:43:02 PM
Ah yes. Weedsconsin, baby
Mattsabbath 3:43:27 PM
Am learning much today
Mattsabbath 3:44:52 PM
Just found my dad's old stuff from living in Holland. He stayed in Room 666 in an Amsterdam hotel LOL. No wonder I like doom.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:46:39 PM
Mattsabbath 3:47:20 PM
Speakin o which/witch, Ahab, we need Sabbath Sounds part deux for "spooky season" as the great Ossy calls it 🎃
Captain Ahab (host) 3:47:52 PM
oh it's coming
Jon Solomon 3:48:18 PM
Had to duck out for a spell to tackle something but I'm back in time for Serious Riffs.
Mattsabbath 3:48:22 PM
I saw a Holidays display at the market today and wanted to choose violence 😶
Captain Ahab (host) 3:48:42 PM
you didn't miss much, must more weed music lol
Captain Ahab (host) 3:48:47 PM
Mattsabbath 3:49:05 PM
Reason to live, Ahab. Me happy 🎃🐐🤘
Mattsabbath 3:50:18 PM
or as the French say, Jon, Riffage Terminal
Mattsabbath 3:52:23 PM
I must give public props to dj Flex Luthor. His last song of recent show was an absolute left field absolute banger by Aesop Rock
Mattsabbath 3:57:36 PM
Supralux voyager to dab city
Mattsabbath 3:59:11 PM
Desert danking
iamthelabhras 4:02:05 PM
Hello fellow Desert Cruisers.
Mattsabbath 4:02:52 PM
Hello iamthelabhras. I always misread yer handle as iamthelabrat LOL
Captain Ahab (host) 4:03:10 PM
hello hello
iamthelabhras 4:03:44 PM
@Mattsabbath: you are not the first person to make that mistake! Happens both on & offline.
iamthelabhras 4:04:17 PM
Just happy to be on board!
Mattsabbath 4:07:27 PM
Iamthelabhras yer shirt reminds me of a movement to "make Boston shitty again" LOL (anti-gentrification/silicon valleyization)
Mattsabbath 4:09:09 PM
This dude asks Boston Gen Zoomers what they listen to and they say "Boygenius" and he says No! No! No! SSD! Lemonheads! Deep Wound! Get in the pit! Lol
iamthelabhras 4:09:34 PM
Ahh! Would that the destruction of hitchBOT had stopped Philly gentrification in its tracks.
iamthelabhras 4:10:09 PM
There were pits at Lemonhead shows?
Mattsabbath 4:10:49 PM
There are pits at COREY FELDMAN SHOWS!!
iamthelabhras 4:11:16 PM
Corey Feldman is alive?
Mattsabbath 4:11:25 PM
Pits are where we make them. I wanted to start one in the supermarket today seeing holiday shit already up.
Mattsabbath 4:12:00 PM
Corey lives! He tours with a band. It's cringey fun.
Mattsabbath 4:12:48 PM
Corey is obsessed with Michael Jackson
iamthelabhras 4:13:17 PM
Does he cover Morton Feldman songs?
Mattsabbath 4:13:41 PM
Mattsabbath 4:14:32 PM
Ahab has gone into Swedemode™️ 😂🤣👍🇸🇪
Mattsabbath 4:16:14 PM
Ahab I keep meaning to send you/wprb a King of Sweden mug & troll magnet but I go to the post office and it's like a time machine to 1952
Mattsabbath 4:17:50 PM
This Dragon Wagon song is pretty
Captain Ahab (host) 4:18:18 PM
swedemode is just the default here
Jon Solomon 4:19:05 PM
Klimaforandringer was a big winner over here.
Mattsabbath 4:21:34 PM
Asteroid Witch! Dope band name
Mattsabbath 4:22:26 PM
Forget the broom. Ride an asteroid.
Mattsabbath 4:23:53 PM
an "asteroid witch" sounds like some bizarre, unique Halloween costume a lil kid would come up with 😂
Mattsabbath 4:35:48 PM
Don Gastro! This might lure the great Chef Emeril into the chat
Jon Solomon 4:39:33 PM
A band from Italy provides me the perfect excuse to share this Very Good Shirt a friend told me about yesterday...
Jon Solomon 4:39:36 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:40:00 PM
omg i love it
Ossy 4:40:15 PM
Hi Ahab!
Mattsabbath 4:40:26 PM
Awesome shirt
Captain Ahab (host) 4:40:35 PM
hey Ossy!
Ossy 4:43:39 PM
Shirt so "Alien" like Ellen Ripley!
Jäsön 4:49:51 PM
lol @ Italien shirt with the hand gesture
Mattsabbath 4:54:08 PM
Fun show Ahab! Thanx fer keeping an old man up to speed with the times. Looking forward to gettin my Ouija board out for Sabbath Sounds vol. 2.
Jäsön 4:55:06 PM
Rockin' show, Captain.
Ossy 4:57:45 PM
Mattsabbath 4:58:06 PM
Make Space Mountain dark again ✊
Jon Solomon 4:58:26 PM
