Eric Wing 10:08:45 PM

Matt McGee 10:09:12 PM
my math class would have me type it as Matt^2
Eric Wing 10:10:04 PM
yeah i copied the superscript 2 but it just pasted it as a normal one so i got fooled
KFAI 10:10:45 PM
So 2 matts together give you exponential power?
KFAI 10:11:09 PM
I dunno, seems like it would be additive. ;-)
Matt McGee 10:11:21 PM
We become Mutt

KFAI 10:32:21 PM
Is that a new one? Or have I just never had it?
KFAI 10:32:37 PM
Maybe I have tried it...
Eric Wing 10:33:09 PM
nah they've had it a few times. it's a light one.
Darth Riffeous 10:33:41 PM
nice I like their lighter ones, TBH can't handle the 10% stuff for more than a few sips
Darth Riffeous 10:34:06 PM
they taste great but too strong to drink 750 ml
Darth Riffeous 10:34:24 PM
(loses 1000 metal points)
Eric Wing 10:34:24 PM
i'm usually there at least once a week so i'm used to them haha
KFAI 10:34:36 PM
Got to split them with your lady
KFAI 10:35:28 PM

Eric Wing 10:35:48 PM

KFAI 10:36:08 PM
Im jealous
KFAI 10:37:02 PM
After college when I was living in Milwaukee, I got an apartment 2 blocks from my favorite brewery. It was glorious.
Eric Wing 10:37:43 PM

Darth Riffeous 10:37:58 PM

KFAI 10:39:41 PM
Best thing was one summer I was better jobs for a bit.
KFAI 10:40:00 PM
between jobs
KFAI 10:40:28 PM
And I walked over and told the owner I was available to work part time.
KFAI 10:40:52 PM
He called me a week later asking if I could help on the packaging line.
Eric Wing 10:40:57 PM
this track is vicious
KFAI 10:41:14 PM
True dat.
KFAI 10:42:07 PM
Long story short: I got to work for a day, had a beer while I worked, took home a case of short-fill bottles, and got paid $50. It told him it was like fantasy camp.
Matthew Gurrola 10:42:26 PM
Currently drinking Indeed "Chase the Devil." Bourbon barrel aged Red ale at 12%
Darth Riffeous 10:42:34 PM
haha fantasy beer camp that's gotta be a thing
KFAI 10:43:21 PM
It should be
KFAI 10:43:43 PM
Damn, Matt, that sounds incredible.
Matthew Gurrola 10:44:13 PM
It is. Tastes like something Hammerheart would make.
KFAI 10:44:44 PM
Eric, speaking of riff video... how about Alex Walstead's shit?
KFAI 10:44:49 PM
Holy fuck
Matthew Gurrola 10:45:56 PM
666 feet apart.
Eric Wing 10:46:20 PM
Alex is unfair
Eric Wing 10:46:32 PM
Nobody should be allowed to riff that hard all the time
KFAI 10:47:00 PM
KFAI 10:47:18 PM
He's fucking incredible.
Darth Riffeous 10:47:46 PM

Matthew Gurrola 10:56:24 PM
Yep. But the part time Twins job is obviously out of action.
KFAI 10:57:01 PM
What did you do for the Twins?
Matthew Gurrola 10:57:36 PM
Guest services. Gate scanning and ushering.
KFAI 10:57:56 PM
Matthew Gurrola 10:58:41 PM
Hopefully the GNR concert still happens in late July. Would be cool to get paid to see them.
KFAI 10:58:57 PM

Joshua Decker 11:22:05 PM
Any room for requests yet or ya guys booked for the last 30?
KFAI 11:22:04 PM
Saw you saying that they weren't doing safety practices.
KFAI 11:22:18 PM
This is pre-recorded, so no requests.
KFAI 11:22:35 PM
But I'd take ideas for next week. ;-)
Joshua Decker 11:23:02 PM
Ah, word. Yeah, they weren't doing safety stuff, but I raised a fuss and they were tonight. Don't think I'm very well liked now tho.
Joshua Decker 11:23:40 PM
My brother's new band Longwinter has a new EP out, should play a track off that :P
KFAI 11:23:59 PM
That's fucked up that you had to complain to make them do the right thing.
KFAI 11:24:22 PM
Weren't you doing a truck driving thing before? What happened to that?
Joshua Decker 11:25:14 PM
Had to take some time off for family emergency shit and it was a sort of last minute thing and they really couldn't keep the job for me, trying to get back into trucking tho.
KFAI 11:26:00 PM
Best of luck
Joshua Decker 11:26:36 PM
Thanks, man :)
Darth Riffeous 11:27:02 PM

KFAI 11:35:20 PM
Sorta had to be
Matthew Gurrola 11:35:30 PM
Now drinking Hammerheart "Fimbulvetr"
KFAI 11:35:57 PM
PSA: Summit Slugfest IPA sucks.
KFAI 11:36:09 PM
Just say no
Matthew Gurrola 11:37:08 PM
Old can? Thought it was decent when it first came out.
Darth Riffeous 11:37:38 PM
"Fimbulwinter, is the immediate prelude to the events of RagnarΓΆk... the harsh winter that precedes the end of the world and puts an end to all life on Earth." well damn
Joshua Decker 11:39:07 PM
It's gotta be better than these Natty Ice tallboys I've been miling thru this whole ordeal lol
KFAI 11:39:10 PM
I bought it around Dec 31st, and it's turned. x(
KFAI 11:39:28 PM
Natty Ice at least has a shelf life
Joshua Decker 11:39:45 PM
KFAI 11:40:03 PM
I mixed some Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA in with it, so it's tolerable
Joshua Decker 11:41:21 PM
Classy move lol
Matthew Gurrola 11:41:43 PM
Pretty much a 3 month max shelf life for IPA's. And that's stretching it without refrigeration.
KFAI 11:41:46 PM
Beer mixing is underrated
Joshua Decker 11:41:53 PM
It really is
Joshua Decker 11:43:54 PM
Well said, WIll! \m/
