TAndy 10:18:50 AM
Almost kind of GY!BE-ish at some parts too
DSM 10:19:41 AM

Travis in TechniColor ado 10:19:43 AM

You hear the new Slift yet, Cap'n? Seems down your alley
Jason 10:20:50 AM
Haha.."Bestial Piglord". Nice name.
Captain Ahab (host) 10:20:52 AM
It's coming up! Second hour
Dan Ruccia 10:21:08 AM
DSM 10:21:38 AM
Morning Ahab. If it weren't for wprb schedule changes I wouldn't even know time was passing
Captain Ahab (host) 10:23:26 AM
You're welcome?
Captain Ahab (host) 10:23:31 AM
Captain Ahab (host) 10:23:37 AM
Morning to you too
DSM 10:26:35 AM
this Beastial Piglord is pleasantly brutal considering it's only 10am
Captain Ahab (host) 10:27:10 AM
oh good, I was aiming for pleasantly brutal, nothing too harsh
DSM 10:28:18 AM
DSM 10:28:28 AM
how you like the new slot so far?
Captain Ahab (host) 10:30:38 AM
so far so good, it's actually worked out nicely because all my regularly week things this semester like teaching, desert cruising, certain meetings etc are ALL in the morning, so I can dedicate my afternoons to finishing my dissertation
TAndy 10:31:17 AM
Heck yeah. Going to be rreally interesting how your music matches up with those balmy mornings later in the season.
Jason 10:33:52 AM
I think @Brian made a comment about laser sound effects in a song - now I hear it every time.
DSM 10:34:17 AM
Sounds like that will be a nice rhythm Ahab.
Brian D 10:35:24 AM
Them's lazers...
Brian D 10:35:49 AM
Captain Ahab (host) 10:35:56 AM
TAndy 10:36:56 AM
here we go
Teresa Peacock 10:39:16 AM
Good morning Ahab & fellow Cruisers! I like this new time slot as my semester is also skewing morning-oriented and I need the heaviness to motivate and energize me. <3 Also, I think I remember Flex having the morning time slot directly after Stitching Pink one year... EVERYTHING you've played from 2024 bodes for an exceptionally great year for fuzzy doomy heavy music!
Captain Ahab (host) 10:41:19 AM
morning Teresa! glad to hear it, come rain or shine I will BE HERE MONDAY MORNINGS to motivate and energize
Lance Gardner 10:42:20 AM
Hello, new spot is good....nice lead in show for Jazz and Beyond. Gets things going for the week
Mike Tropiano 10:42:32 AM
Wish I could listen longer, this is a great motivator for the day. But I only have about 20 minutes between my appointed duties. A most valued 20 minutes!
Mike Tropiano 10:44:48 AM
Seems that there are several people here in a similar line of work.
Mike Tropiano 10:45:15 AM
We should open our own university.
Captain Ahab (host) 10:45:25 AM
hey Mike, glad you could tune in even if just for a bit
Captain Ahab (host) 10:45:40 AM
lol wouldn't that be something?!
Mike Tropiano 10:45:50 AM
Thomas Eagan 10:46:12 AM
Hey gang
Mike Tropiano 10:46:51 AM
At least right now, my office mate (whose musical tastes are diametircally opposed) is in class now.
Mike Tropiano 10:47:54 AM
I'm off. Enjoy the blessings of Early Ahab all!
Thomas Eagan 10:48:52 AM
I dig that Daevar album. It's total Windhand 2.0 but I don't care.
Captain Ahab (host) 10:49:15 AM
hey Thomas, yeah a lot of people say the same but also love Windhand so I don't mind haha
Rob F 10:50:37 AM
Morning Captain - I like this ORUM. Also, in listening when I can between meetings
TAndy 10:50:58 AM
damn this is incredible
Dale Hazelton 10:55:45 AM
real toe tapper of a show here, captain!
TAndy 10:57:56 AM
TAndy 10:58:20 AM
Oh my god I'm going to hear this ID have a resurgence this season
Bud Burroughs 11:01:59 AM
I thought I was listening to Windhand until I checked the list, so yeah, I definitely agree with your Daevar comparison!
Captain Ahab (host) 11:04:19 AM
I should prolly dig up the wake and bake station id, seems appropriate
Travis in TechniColor ado 11:05:08 AM
are you Holden?
Captain Ahab (host) 11:05:09 AM
hey Bud
Bud Burroughs 11:09:17 AM
Howdy Captain, I'm enjoying the new slot, but we'll have to see how I feel on Wednesday afternoon.
Jason 11:21:09 AM
This Holystone is great. Dissolves was solid too.
Dan Ruccia 11:25:16 AM
There it is. This album rips so hard
TAndy 11:26:17 AM
TAndy 11:26:23 AM
