Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

In 1983, I was at my friends pool, while his older sister played Madonna. I had no idea what was snark back then, but I knew of the snorks (speaking of fantasy ichthyology).
Avatar Thu. 7/18/19 9:34pm northguineahills:

I like that cover for some reason.
Avatar Thu. 7/18/19 9:35pm Flash Strap:

it does have a certain reading rainbow sense of cool

Very Vandroogenbroeck, everyone!

Fairness in advertising, I'd call it. Goofy cover = goofy Moogs.

Enuff feeding skeeters where there's WiFi. I thank thee!...

take refuge from the bites, Rev, and thanks for hanging out!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 7/18/19 9:39pm Little Danny:

Heh. I appreciate that cover as well, mostly for being so of its time, place and intended function.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/18/19 9:39pm coelacanth∅:

heh, Evan well- colored pencil hippie art. it's a family tradition here.

The Coloursound covers are all done by the same person?
  Thu. 7/18/19 9:40pm Dean:

For some reason (equivalent goofiness?) the cover of the Mikola LP reminds me of Symphonic Slam.

@ngh I liked the Reading Rainbow theme song even though I was too old for the show.
Avatar Thu. 7/18/19 9:42pm Flash Strap:

@chresti: mostly, yeah. Waltraud Greffenius, wife of Walter Greffenius. I generally like them but when i say that's my least favorite it's because there's a lot of similar covers to compare it to
  Thu. 7/18/19 9:43pm Dean:

Sort of a back-handed insult?

Music for touring Chernobyl.

@melinda: I was slightly older then the demographic (I was already ready encyclopedias and fiction novels by age 7), but I watched it w/ my younger brothers as it was interesting. That, and it came after sesame street and electric company and I would try to date every sketch [b/c i'm weird].

ILMDB would be the best website ever. I want the film, radio, tv and advertising 'credits' for each piece of library music.
Avatar Thu. 7/18/19 9:45pm northguineahills:

errr… reading, then watch enough Reading Rainbow, apparently....

Avatar Thu. 7/18/19 9:48pm Flash Strap:

i'm familiar with that site to put it mildly

This Tender doesn't sound entirely unlike Symphonic Slam.

Yeah, I try to stay away from that site.
