Shit I still need to pour one
KFAI 10:07:07 PM

Lydia Stark 10:07:12 PM

Darth Riffeous 10:07:30 PM
Son of Eric cream ale from wabasha brewing, there's a viking on the label and everything
KFAI 10:07:47 PM

KFAI 10:08:03 PM
Cream of Eric, huh?
Lydia Stark 10:09:27 PM
well if there's a viking on the label it must be good
Lydia Stark 10:09:35 PM
makes sense to me!
Matthew Gurrola 10:10:01 PM
Drekker Night Machine IPA here. Brewery's logo is a Viking.
Darth Riffeous 10:11:21 PM

KFAI 10:11:34 PM

KFAI 10:11:49 PM

Darth Riffeous 10:13:19 PM

Darth Riffeous 10:14:51 PM

KFAI 10:15:27 PM

KFAI 10:15:45 PM
Both miss their friends and teachers.
Darth Riffeous 10:16:18 PM
KFAI 10:16:44 PM
Yeah, there's still tears over it sometimes.
Lydia Stark 10:17:17 PM

KFAI 10:19:05 PM
I miss leaving the house...
KFAI 10:20:19 PM

Lydia Stark 10:21:14 PM
we'll all have to go to the mall when we can!
Darth Riffeous 10:21:22 PM

Lydia Stark 10:21:32 PM
WARBRINGER! I'm so excited to hear this full album
Matthew Gurrola 10:21:35 PM

KFAI 10:21:49 PM

Uncle Joey 10:26:46 PM
Dang, I missed the ego stroke of hearing my own music on the radio again. hahaha
Darth Riffeous 10:27:45 PM

Darth Riffeous 10:27:55 PM
i wanna say from plagued insanity
Uncle Joey 10:27:59 PM
KFAI 10:28:20 PM
Evening, Joe!
KFAI 10:28:44 PM
Darth, I don't remember the term
Lydia Stark 10:33:37 PM
I think I remember the conversation, but unfortunately a google search has proven fruitless
Uncle Joey 10:34:06 PM
I think I was actually there for this.
Uncle Joey 10:34:25 PM
I believe it was Pat Broderick who had brought it up possibly?
Darth Riffeous 10:36:05 PM
if we were in studio we could call him live on air to settle this
KFAI 10:38:37 PM
I miss the studio
Uncle Joey 10:39:25 PM
I'm sad I wasn't able to stop in for pledge drive. :/
Matthew Gurrola 10:39:52 PM
Are you gonna do the 24 hour takeover in studio or pre-recorded?
Uncle Joey 10:40:12 PM
Okay, that cart in to the retro roar bump was amazing.
KFAI 10:40:31 PM
Yeah, that was a good one
KFAI 10:41:00 PM
Takeover will be live
Uncle Joey 10:41:12 PM
Was that planned or just kinda how the dice rolled?
Darth Riffeous 10:42:19 PM
god i luv this song/album/everyone
Lydia Stark 10:43:00 PM
that's what I call a little bit of metal magic
Uncle Joey 10:43:59 PM
Yeah Darth, it's hard to deny how hard this album rips. Such a great one.
KFAI 10:44:28 PM
Joe, the carts are added by Mason, so it was pretty random.
Uncle Joey 10:45:37 PM
Hell yeah. That's so awesome.
Uncle Joey 10:45:50 PM
Love it when things just come together like that.
KFAI 10:45:50 PM
Darth Riffeous 10:47:25 PM
**in the pit**
KFAI 10:47:46 PM
I really wanna mosh to this at the Hex
KFAI 10:49:16 PM
Oh, Joe and everyone, speaking of pledge drive
KFAI 10:49:35 PM
The station raised $43K
Darth Riffeous 10:49:56 PM

KFAI 10:50:02 PM
Exceeded their goal of 40K
Darth Riffeous 10:50:07 PM
oh damn!
KFAI 10:50:30 PM
Yeah, quite impressive.
Darth Riffeous 10:51:32 PM
isn't this betraying the true "digital dictator"? there can only be one :D
KFAI 10:52:21 PM
I think the licence on that name expired a few years ago. lol
KFAI 10:52:32 PM
This song fucking rules btw
Lydia Stark 10:52:34 PM

Lydia Stark 10:53:25 PM

KFAI 11:07:02 PM
KFAI 11:08:04 PM
If he wanted his name pronounced correctly, it would be spelled Yanick.
Darth Riffeous 11:08:30 PM
ooo trouble!
KFAI 11:09:14 PM
Sorry, Metal Kid, I kinda hijacked your idea and didn't play that much thrash. =(
Lydia Stark 11:09:53 PM
haha all good, as soon as the new Warbringer album pops up on spotify I'll be a happy thrasher :D
KFAI 11:11:23 PM
thanks for understanding =)
Matthew Gurrola 11:14:55 PM
This 1990 stuff reminds me of when I saw Slayer/Megadeth/Testament in 2010. Seasons and Rust were played in full. Also Jeff Hanneman's last MN show.
Lydia Stark 11:15:13 PM
they're some great picks no matter who picked em, obviously!
Matthew Gurrola 11:16:27 PM
Menza was a monster.
Darth Riffeous 11:19:45 PM

Matthew Gurrola 11:21:49 PM
Didn't Barnes sucker punch the frontman of an opening band?
KFAI 11:25:39 PM
He probably did.
Darth Riffeous 11:25:49 PM

KFAI 11:25:59 PM
I picked this song for Decker and he's not here. =(
Lydia Stark 11:30:57 PM

Darth Riffeous 11:33:26 PM

Lydia Stark 11:34:10 PM
