Jon Solomon 3:32:38 PM
Trying to drown out the sounds of an actual building being torn to the ground behind the Barge with this dubby exploration...
Matt Sabbath 3:35:14 PM
Ahab I think what Jon is saying is he needs some High on Fire
Bud Burroughs 3:35:31 PM
Love the ØSC! I'm a little surprised that this hasn't drawn Dave the Obscure into the chat...

It is a race to see which finishes first: this jam or the software update I'm running.
Matt Sabbath 3:41:45 PM
Jonbot software update?
Jon Solomon 3:44:01 PM
You can update to Sonoma 14.3 with many minutes to spare before Ganja Anja completes.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:44:36 PM
I should probably wait till after my show
Matt Sabbath 3:44:56 PM
Jon Solomon 3:48:16 PM
Running software updates is almost as fun as turning off motion smoothing on someone else's TV. Almost.

iamthelabhras 4:00:25 PM
Does the existence of a show named "Desert Cruising" imply the existence of _another_ show named "Desert Bruising"?
Matt Sabbath 4:00:28 PM
Matt Sabbath 4:01:12 PM
iamthelabhras good title! A desert bruising was took
Captain Ahab (host) 4:03:56 PM
