Saturday's Mixing Session

I was going to get to this yesterday, sure, but when I woke up yesterday, I got up to take a leak to find the basement flooded. The source I found was the first floor bathroom, where somebody had left a mess - I can't tell if it was shit or vomit - that looked like curried oatmeal with red pepper in the toilet, clogging it up and letting the tank run billy hell. So, before I had a shower, coffee, or even a chance to get out of my night-sweat-soaked t-shirt, I was mopping up a half inch of standing foul shit-water. I was not in the mood to type up the charts.
But I know you've been clamoring for them.
