Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from January 29, 2015 Options

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.

I've donned my pith helmet!

I hope you have your passport in order!

Welcome doca! all sloths are welcome here!

@Doug: Shhh I was trying to remain undercover
@Flash Strap: I'm glad this is a sloths-allowed radio show
Avatar 7:09pm Flash Strap:

Explorers Room is a longtime friend of the sloth community
Avatar 7:10pm doca:

Then I'll issue a honorary sloth-community passport as a token of our longstanding mutual appreciation

I can't find Sorcerer anywhere, I've always wanted to see it since my college gf had the sntrk.

doca: I declare Our Most Honored Guest From the World of the Trees

ngh: It's so fuckin' good, it's hard to believe your eyes. It's been rereleased now, after years of being overlooked.
Avatar 7:25pm doca:

Gonna crush some leaves and lie on top of a branch over here, @Flash Strap. Amazing show! I'll lurk here but eventually I'll come down the tree.

I was the epitome of J Peterman doing a Kurtz

Hahah www.youtube.com...
Avatar 7:41pm Flash Strap:

I'll have to click that later; what a fun mystery it'll be
Avatar 7:42pm doca:

It's just J Peterman doing Kurtz' line "The horror, the horror" because of the Urban Sombrero.
Avatar 7:44pm Flash Strap:

Man, that's such a good episode
Avatar 7:44pm Flash Strap:

You might not guess it, but I'm in a near-constant state of watching and rewatching Seinfeld in its entirety
Avatar 7:52pm Flash Strap:

Same goes for Apocalypse Now, actually
Avatar 7:55pm doca:

Haha I'm in a state of constantly trying not to rewatch any Seinfeld episode actually, because if I start I don't know if I would be able to stop before watching the whole seven seasons.
Avatar 7:57pm ndbob:

I was never a Seinfeld fan
Avatar 7:57pm Flash Strap:

I got bad news for you man! There's NINE seasons! Better start catching up now so you can start all over again
Avatar 7:58pm ndbob:

However I am a big Flash Strap fan - excellent first hour - catch the rest on the archive
Avatar 8:00pm northguineahills:

I used to go to the Okefenokee about every other year as a kid, I loved that place!
Avatar 8:03pm Flash Strap:

Thanks for listening Bob! Your Seinfeld preferences won't affect our friendship, I promise
Avatar 8:03pm Flash Strap:

NGH: a fellow swamp baby?
Avatar 8:15pm Flash Strap:

I had never heard this one until recently. It's pretty nuts. New favorite
  8:17pm Dean:

This set is killer. Tangerine Dream and Froese were my LP artists of choice whenever I decided to take a lazy weekend afternoon nap.
Avatar 8:18pm Flash Strap:

Sounds like a nap from the movie Altered States. Did you ever wake up in the zoo with blood on your face?

Thanks for saying so, by the way. About the set.
Avatar 8:20pm Flash Strap:

Man, I would have liked that movie about ten times more if it had more appropriately cosmic music. I'm pretty medium heat when it comes to Altered States. Come to think of it.
  8:23pm Dean:

At about the time I was taking those naps--say, during the late '70s and into the '80s--I had forgone cinema almost entirely. Still can't suffer too many movies. But I have kids now. Consequently, I've seen "Frozen" about six or seven thousand times.
Avatar 8:30pm Flash Strap:

What a way to return to the cinema, Dean. How is it?
  8:31pm Dean:

"Frozen"? Want me to sing it to you straight through from the opening sequence? I'm bitter, man, bitter. Fuck Olaf.
Avatar 8:33pm Flash Strap:

Hah, wow! I haven't seen it, so I have no idea who this asshole Olaf is.
  8:34pm Dean:

A friggin' snowman with a flame fetish.
  8:39pm Dean:

Ah, all better. Afternoon naps...
Avatar 8:49pm Flash Strap:

Just looked him up. Looks unbearable. Look so stupid I can't believe what I'm seeing.
  8:51pm Dean:

You thought I was exaggerating.

Ugh. I'm REALLY late.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Ike:

Me too, U.M. But I did catch the last 20 min. or so. Cool Froese sounds.
Avatar 9:00pm Flash Strap:

Thanks for stopping by all the same!
