  3:09am Maeve Durry:

i see what the dj did there
Avatar 3:13am MissEevie:

How is everyone doing this wonderful night/morning/whatever?
Avatar 3:13am Bill Zebub:

Was that the first that you heard of the Type O song, miss Evie?
Avatar 3:14am MissEevie:

It very well could have been yes.
Avatar 3:16am MissEevie:

And I liked it! As you know, I am more of a Carnivore fan than a Type O fan. But that was good. I enjoyed it.

We have a bit. I was in the city earlier.. out in the boonies now and there is more here.
Avatar 3:23am Bill Zebub:

Please share your opinions of the songs. It helps me shape future shows.
Avatar 3:23am MissEevie:

I am still loving this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23am coelacanth∅:

mmmaybe 8-9"? snowing still
Avatar 3:25am Bill Zebub:

It angers me that I am not in the land of snow.

You can have mine.

We are hearing the voice of a deity!

Yes JSA!!
Bill you can NEVER go wrong with Bowie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26am sinister dexter:

Bowie! * _ *
Avatar 3:27am Bill Zebub:

I like revealing the many sides of Bowie - a true artistic soul.
Avatar 3:28am MissEevie:

I grew up listening to him. My father was a huge fan.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31am coelacanth∅:

yes to Bowie

Bill i thought you were in nj
...i guess not!
  3:31am Maeve Durry:

but at least it's sacreligious

I am in exile

Actually, his heart is in a jar on my desk. 🤷

Avatar 3:34am Bill Zebub:

Miss Evie, your face will be a comfort when I face my last moments.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34am coelacanth∅:

wha'd you do?!
i know someone in exile from here...although it's been more than 7 years; she might be able to come back - but she'd be a target.
i hope she's not TOO sad in sunny california.
Avatar 3:35am Bill Zebub:

I can't return until at least January 2022, if I am still alive.
Avatar 3:36am MissEevie:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37am coelacanth∅:

that was more of a quick pinprick than a slow burn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38am coelacanth∅:

anyway Bill, look at the bright side...maybe NOBODY will be alive 13 months from now.
Avatar 3:38am Bill Zebub:

That is why they call me "Pinprick Bill"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39am coelacanth∅:

ohhhh, THAT'S why... that's actually good then.
Avatar 3:40am MissEevie:

Digging this thus far.
Avatar 3:40am Bill Zebub:

I love doom - I hope that this song resonates with you.
Avatar 3:42am MissEevie:

I just got into doom this year, believe it or not. Really liking "funeral doom" as I have found it on Spotify.
Avatar 3:43am Bill Zebub:

The slow torment is exquisite. I would have a 100% doom show, but I want to invite listeners into the realm rather than repel them. So a song or two per hour...
  3:44am Maeve Durry:

My shape of shape of shows to come? More death, thrash and blackmetal, and more new stuff
Avatar 3:47am MissEevie:

A doom show would be amazing!! I would not be repelled by any means.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am sinister dexter:

Avatar 3:50am Bill Zebub:

Some black metal is in store for you... if you will be kind enough to wait.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51am sinister dexter:

if this is doom whats Anaal Nathrakh?
  3:51am Maeve Durry:

wowzer; u treat us sir
Avatar 3:51am Bill Zebub:

Shape of Despair is one of my favorite bands. Every song is exceptional, in my opinion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52am coelacanth∅:

wouldn't sabbath be considered doom (now)? -and electric wizard, etc...

i'm somewhat sub-genre identification-challenged.
Avatar 3:53am MissEevie:

I should be up for a bit.. have 2 beers left!
Avatar 3:54am Ole 'Rick:

I usually lay on my floor while listening to this kind of stuff, on my back
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54am sinister dexter:

i like how you keep time Eevie , 3 or 4 here
Avatar 3:55am Bill Zebub:

Black Sabbath is worthy of a class unto itself. It has influenced much of doom. TROUBLE is coming in a song or two. You can hear the indluence.
  3:55am Maeve Durry:

Also, more Epic Power Metal and Viking Metal
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55am sinister dexter:

cheers my friends! listeners!
  3:56am Maeve Durry:

and more Heavy Metal
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56am coelacanth∅:

"blues metal doom rock" ?
Avatar 3:57am Bill Zebub:

A rose by any other name...
Avatar 4:01am MissEevie:

Heck yeah. Once "beer o'clock" hits we enter a new level of time. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02am coelacanth∅:

i'd like to have a doom/black metal/sludge show on wfmu, with occasional outings to noise, stoner metal and ...whatever early swans is called ("industrial sludge"? ...like i said: challenged)
but i'm not usually up this late on wednesdays anyway.
Avatar 4:02am MissEevie:

Wooooooo!!!! More Paradise lost!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03am coelacanth∅:

i miss the time of heaviness on wfmu, 5-6 years ago. so many great shows. gone.
Avatar 4:04am Bill Zebub:

I tried hard not to play what WM Berger or Diane Kamikaze played. We each had our own realms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05am coelacanth∅:

Avatar 4:06am MissEevie:

Oooo.. I'm -REALLY- liking this.
Avatar 4:07am Bill Zebub:

I would love to hear that you are a new Trouble fan, Miss Evie.
Avatar 4:07am MissEevie:

Added to Spotify!
Avatar 4:08am Bill Zebub:

You can hear a Sabbath influence in the next song as well.
Avatar 4:08am MissEevie:

Really really loving this!!
Avatar 4:08am pb183max:

I am now living in the UK but grew up in NJ - hope I can ask about the opposing side here but how is the programming on WSOU?
Avatar 4:09am Bill Zebub:

I have not heard that station in at least 20 years. Perhaps someone else can comment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10am sinister dexter:

Avatar 4:11am Bill Zebub:

There is a song coming up that falls in the category of "Post Black Metal" I wonder what you will think of it. It is a band from Australia called "Departe"
  4:13am Maeve Durry:

im not as hot for the post black metal, but ill give it a whirl
Avatar 4:13am Bill Zebub:

I wonder what you will think, Durry.
Avatar 4:14am Bill Zebub:

I predict that the song will earn a woohoo from Sinister Dexter.
Avatar 4:18am MissEevie:

Avatar 4:19am MissEevie:

Live too !! Sweet!

Reading The Reaving of Isabelle while listening. :)
  4:23am Maeve Durry:

now we rockin
Avatar 4:24am Bill Zebub:

You are too kind, Miss Evie.
Avatar 4:24am Bill Zebub:

Give Departe a chance.
Avatar 4:25am MissEevie:

Bill, I am officially done all of my classes! I actually have time now. Very enjoyable so far.
  4:26am Maeve Durry:

I'll give a piece of it a chance
Avatar 4:28am MissEevie:

I am definitely going to check out more of their stuff.
  4:28am Maeve Durry:

Avatar 4:29am Bill Zebub:

Prepare for a delightful ending.
  4:29am Maeve Durry:

i'm officially hiding behind the sofa so far

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32am coelacanth∅:

fucking love this
  4:33am ilTofa:

What a delightful surprise! 🙂
Avatar 4:33am Bill Zebub:

I must obey chaos.
Avatar 4:34am MissEevie:

I don't dislike it as much as I remember disliking the cure. ?
Avatar 4:35am Bill Zebub:

Miss Evie, the right mood makes a hit of any song.
Avatar 4:36am MissEevie:

I honestly never gave them a shot. I heard the popular stuff and that was pretty much it.
I don't mind this at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36am coelacanth∅:

that, and they did put out some awful crap after this album (in my opinion)
- then came back strong when i wasn't looking
Avatar 4:37am Bill Zebub:

The popular songs do not hint of the darkness of many artists. If you heard Type O Negative "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend" you would dismiss the band and never know the darkness of "Bloody Kisses"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38am sinister dexter:

Mercyful Fate! woohoo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39am coelacanth∅:

the first 4 cure albums are all amazing
yeah, i guess that was before they really broke through in the states
Avatar 4:39am MissEevie:

And that is exactly what I did! It was you, Bill, who said j had to give them another chance. ..and as always you were correct. I still love Carnivore way more though. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42am coelacanth∅:

Bill @437 that reminds me of going to a festival, some woodstock milking thing, and marcie playground played. they had that bubblegum hit "sex and candy", i wasn't too psyched, but aside from that song their entire set was good hardcore punk. moshpit created.
Avatar 4:44am Bill Zebub:

Artists sometimes must make non-art, but they can then insert what is in their hearts. This is why one must never entirely dismiss a band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am coelacanth∅:

(don't know what their albums are like though)
  4:45am Assi:

Wow what a great band, Mercyful Fate, thank you! Bill
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45am coelacanth∅:

i learned ...30 years? after the fact that human league didn't 100% suck.

You're welcome, Assi.
