KFAI 10:03:04 PM
Same dude. Can't do anything without being told I should be doing something else.
KFAI 10:03:22 PM
Hello, Matt! What were you drinking?
Joshua Decker 10:04:01 PM
Just do what we can and feel ok with. Drink beer and whisky whenever we're not doing that, IMO.
Matthew Gurrola 10:04:08 PM
Three Floyds Lazer Snake IPA. Just came out in 16 oz cans.
Lydia Stark 10:04:14 PM

Joshua Decker 10:05:02 PM
Hails, Lydia! \m/
Lydia Stark 10:05:11 PM
KFAI 10:05:24 PM

Matthew Gurrola 10:05:56 PM
The snake is really good. Maybe better than Zombie Dust.
KFAI 10:06:04 PM
no way!
Joshua Decker 10:06:03 PM
Daaang, Zombie Dust is incredible
KFAI 10:06:15 PM
Zombie Dust is my favorite

Joshua Decker 10:20:15 PM
There's a real drummer and also a LOT of programmed drums
Lydia Stark 10:21:59 PM
I feel like facebook has been so full of corona and politics that smaller bands' album releases, like this one, are overlooked...more than usual, anyway
Joshua Decker 10:22:47 PM
Say what you want,abbout deathcore or whatever, it isn't really me thing either, but By The 1000s puts on a killer liveshow to be sure
Barclay Olson 10:22:48 PM
Musette Maximum is one of my favorite songs of the year
Barclay Olson 10:23:13 PM
