Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

hi Darren. i don't hope to be awake much longer but thought i'd check in
Avatar 3:09am Nelo:

Goood morning from Berlin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10am diciassette:

I should not feel this perky. Did I forget to take something?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13am diciassette:

I sure hope the neighbors like this song
Avatar 3:14am Nelo:

The next person loggin inshould have 2 recorders or pumpkins to keep the pattern going ;)
Avatar 3:15am coelacanth∅:

i'm not surprised i'm still awake. my whole sleep cycle is insane but on top of that i had hot chocolate (with whiskey in it) at around 11, which had 3-4X the cocao the recipe suggests.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16am diciassette:

In other words some kind of unholy speedball.
Avatar 3:16am coelacanth∅:

how's that
Avatar 3:17am coelacanth∅:

well Nelo the first 6 posts make a pattern at least
Avatar 3:17am Nelo:

Wow, that sounds like a great drink though. I dont have whiskey at home, otherwise I might have tried that tonight.
Avatar 3:18am Nelo:

Ha ha, true :)

Avatar 3:20am coelacanth∅:

so good! my recipe is sweetened almond milk (silk brand i think), pure cocao powder and jameson. i'm sure there are many ways
Avatar 3:20am Joe D.:

Avatar 3:23am Nelo:

Love this music mix to start my day!!!
Avatar 3:23am coelacanth∅:

it's sure helping me wind down for sleep!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23am diciassette:

What is it about Irish whiskey and chocolate/coffee
Avatar 3:24am HyperDose:

That was some nice bubblegum
Avatar 3:24am coelacanth∅:

good question
  3:25am Ryan:

Let’s gooooo Darren! 🔥
Avatar 3:26am coelacanth∅:

i just like irish whiskey. i like bourbon too but it's a bit heavier, in general, and sweeter and doesn't treat me as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27am diciassette:

The other day I did chuck some proper # 12 into a starbucks espresso shot and was inordinately pleased with myself afterwards.
  3:27am Ryan:

The key bump Darren gave us turned out to be meth 😨
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28am Darren:

sorry thought you knew!!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28am Darren:

thanks for hanging this morning everybuddy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29am VincentNifigance:

This is a busy Kitchen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29am diciassette:

This is a happy kitchen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30am VincentNifigance:

...kitchen at a party/meth kitchen.
Avatar 3:30am coelacanth∅:

diciassette i can't get into scotch (you're talking about scotch right?)
i've tried at least 9 singlemalts, some of them extremely pricey; and 3-4 blends.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31am diciassette:

Galore rules more so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31am diciassette:

Hey wait!
Avatar 3:31am northguineahills:

In my hotel bed w/ my laptop listening now. Nearly fully supine, thanks Darren!
Avatar 3:32am Nelo:

That was a really good one. :) yeah
Avatar 3:33am northguineahills:

Vincent has different memories of the Kitchen then I do, oh, wait different references.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34am diciassette:

Weirdly I cannae get into Scotch whiskey either. Even though Scottish bands are almost always better than _____ bands
  3:34am Ryan:

I fuxx wit aussies
Avatar 3:35am coelacanth∅:

i don't think i'd ever heard sweeping promised before. so, no
but it's rad yah!
Avatar 3:36am coelacanth∅:

i filled in that blank with a sharpie on my computer screen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36am diciassette:

Avatar 3:37am northguineahills:

I like Isley peatey scotches, just like smokey mezcals. Otherwise, liquors are a mean to an end, not for the palette..
Avatar 3:39am northguineahills:

now, beer, I drink for taste. I only imbibe liquor on weekends, holidays, or moments of celebration.
Avatar 3:39am coelacanth∅:

oh, no no no ngh! those isle of skye whiskies are Impossible! i do not understand how anyone likes those!
Avatar 3:41am coelacanth∅:

i think i drink for taste, buzz, and ritual in about equal proportions
Avatar 3:41am northguineahills:

mentioned earlier, there's doc on Netflix on rock en espanol (en ingles, rock in Latin America).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43am diciassette:

I tried a Laphroaig one time. Sooo peaty. NGH I just saw that pop up! It's chucked into my queue
Avatar 3:44am northguineahills:

Used to hit small indie clubs in Mexico in Monterrey, Pachuca, and Mexico City to watch Mexican bands, (electronica, avant garde, noise, and indie rock).
Avatar 3:45am coelacanth∅:

ever see a band called blueshit?
Avatar 3:46am northguineahills:

(so, pretty much what I would watch in NYC or elsewhere)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46am diciassette:

Do I really have to ask my brain cells that? They have no idea!
Avatar 3:48am coelacanth∅:

ha, i just looked into it and blueshit is on the map now. it used to be impossible to find.
Avatar 3:49am coelacanth∅:

my brain cells like that kind of abuse because they know it's followed by a petting session and maybe some treats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am diciassette:

Avatar 3:52am HyperDose:

Talisker is an Isle of Skye whiskey, right?
Avatar 3:54am coelacanth∅:

i think so. i think it's one of the ones i tried.
Avatar 3:56am HyperDose:

I loved it. Used to buy my weed from this old dude who was a huge whiskey aficionado. Always gave me samples to try. I remember Talisker being one of my favorites....and Ardbeg being one of the most disgusting thing's I've ever tasted.
Avatar 3:57am Nelo:

Yeah, so glad for the possibilities of connection we have!!!
Avatar 3:57am Nelo:

Y‘all, so many whiskey tipps to try out...
Avatar 4:01am northguineahills:

aye, Hyperdose!\

I've been getting a lot of Polish ads lately. Probably listening to Stashu and looking up Polska restaurants.

Gracias, Darren, Buenas noches y'all!
Avatar 4:02am HyperDose:

Hitting the hay so soon northguineahills?

Can we all agree that The Macallan 18 reigns supreme? Aged in sherry oak mmmm...
  4:05am Ryan:

Autralia has cooler parents! I HATE IT HERE!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06am diciassette:

So ruff so tuff, Ryan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07am fred:

Hello Darren and listeners
Avatar 4:08am Nelo:

Hello hello
Avatar 4:08am coelacanth∅:

HyperDose it's not for me. i may try a scotch again one day, if someone convinces me to and it's free of charge; but i have no expectations to like it.
there was 1-2 that i thought okay i could sip this -with ice probably... but why? i'd *kind of* like it. more expensive than what i already enjoy and what i already enjoy doesn't give me a hangover.
  4:08am Ryan:

Dias raros by melenas was one of my favies this year
Avatar 4:09am coelacanth∅:

'night ngh
Avatar 4:09am northguineahills:

@hyperdose:since I'm -5 UMT in the EST, I need some sleep before dawn...
  4:09am Bratello:

LETO v GORODE = summer in the city
  4:09am Ryan:

GN NGH. Happy new year
Avatar 4:09am Nelo:

My recent favorite is „Magic“ by Joan as Police woman. But fav of the year I couldn‘t even say. Very different genre, but possibly Whitney Houston with „Tell me no“
Avatar 4:10am Nelo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12am diciassette:

UMT! EST! Good night!
Avatar 4:12am HyperDose:

Take care northguineahills & coelacanth∅!

And yeah, the best stuff is free expensive stuff haha
Avatar 4:13am coelacanth∅:

i think macallan was one of those i sort of liked. i don't know which macallan.
i was told the talisker i had cost 8-900$/bottle, and i fucking hated it! didn't want even a teaspoon's worth in my mouth!
...so should i cultivate an appreciation for fine scotch? hahaha! what a dumb idea! i'm happy with my jameson
it's bad enough i like expensive beer
Avatar 4:15am coelacanth∅:

i was just saying goodnight to ngh... but i probably should try out this sleep thing i've heard about
  4:15am Ryan:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16am diciassette:

Might as well cultivate
Avatar 4:16am HyperDose:

Talisker is around $65-75 a bottle. Maybe they have a super special reserve or something. I'm not a connoisseur, I've just sampled a few and learned a bit from my time at a wine shop. Cannabis is where I wax intellectual.
Avatar 4:16am DeniseSalcedo:

Great show so far
  4:17am Ryan:

Special interest is 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Avatar 4:19am coelacanth∅:

they've got 'em up to at least $2500.00/bottle! - aged 35 years.
i'm not impressed.
