Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from June 18, 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.

pretty good - just got off a two hour phone call - and you?

Howdy, gang!

Anybody else thinking:
"You remind me of the babe
What babe? babe with the power
What power? power of voodoo
Who do? you do
Do what? remind me of the babe"
Avatar 7:17pm Flash Strap:

Hi there Gary!
Avatar 7:18pm Flash Strap:

And hello WD!
Avatar 7:18pm Flash Strap:

Congrats on that 3-day, hyde.

And I'm doing rather well, I suppose. Thanks for asking, ndbob
Avatar 7:20pm Walking Daydream:

There's a voodoo doll of me at work, I was told.
Avatar 7:22pm Flash Strap:

What'd you do to deserve that, WD?
Avatar 7:26pm Walking Daydream:

Rolled around in the free food room. If there's no name, it's free game, am I right? :]
Avatar 7:27pm Flash Strap:

Surprise harpsichord attack!
Avatar 7:30pm Flash Strap:

Anyway, I'll have to defer to you on that one, WD. Though, you are the one with a revenge doll in your likeness, so your advice may be rather bad to take at face value
Avatar 7:35pm Walking Daydream:

Don't worry, Evan. I wear a mirror around my neck.
Avatar 7:36pm Walking Daydream:

I wonder if there is any progressive afro mathcore funk.
  7:37pm walkingtrees:

Avatar 7:38pm Walking Daydream:

Walking TreeDreams?
  7:40pm walkingtrees:

yes! dreams in the branches
  7:41pm Relax Twin:

Really chill music blog, Flash Trap. Thanks for the Bibliotheque volumes
Avatar 7:44pm Flash Strap:

Hey walkingtrees!!
Avatar 7:45pm Flash Strap:

Thanks Twin. Glad you enjoyed, and happy to have you with us
  7:47pm walkingtrees:

from the hot frontal range in colorado, greetins flash!
Avatar 7:48pm Flash Strap:

Greetins yourself, mister
  7:48pm walkingtrees:

getting a 35 gallon hexagon salt water tank going at the moment, flash tunes always the best
Avatar 7:50pm Flash Strap:

I don't know exactly what you mean, but it sounds like hard work
  7:51pm walkingtrees:

aquariums! ;)
  7:51pm walkingtrees:

and yes, lotsa work!
Avatar 7:52pm Flash Strap:

Oh shit, that's awesome. What ya gonna stock it with?
  7:53pm walkingtrees:

evan i want to bug you..again..about getting a hard copy of the expedition book rolling...
Avatar 7:53pm Flash Strap:

What's that Sun City Girls track?
"Ya got an aquarium, kid? Is it STOCKED?"
  7:53pm walkingtrees:

i'm trying coral with this one
  7:53pm walkingtrees:

haha yes SCGs
Avatar 7:54pm Flash Strap:

thanks for buggin me about it, I'm workin on it as we speak. Should be soon, like "for real" this time
Avatar 7:55pm Flash Strap:

This shit went from classic exotica to just straight up Deep Purple
  7:55pm walkingtrees:

keep me in the loop. i'd love a copy, "for real"
Avatar 7:56pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Evan - catch the rest on the archive as always
Avatar 7:57pm Flash Strap:

will do. i'd love you to have one.
Avatar 7:57pm Flash Strap:

workin on a new book, too. "Atlas of Discovery." A Surrealist history of exploration.
Avatar 7:58pm Flash Strap:

oh, see ya bob. miss ya when you're gone, every time
  7:58pm walkingtrees:

  7:59pm walkingtrees:

looking forward to "atlas"
  8:00pm walkingtrees:

love this one
Avatar 8:01pm Flash Strap:

yeah this one has a groove from outer space
  8:02pm walkingtrees:

i'd be curious to see your take on grooves elevate from the bush to the cosmos ;)
Avatar 8:03pm Flash Strap:

you mean start in the bush and end in space?
  8:06pm walkingtrees:

haha yea, like a mix that "evolves"... from sea to land to space
Avatar 8:06pm Flash Strap:

i hear that, man
Avatar 8:07pm Flash Strap:

sounds like Sven Libaek's albums all in a row, actually
  8:07pm walkingtrees:

  8:08pm walkingtrees:

inner space has in in heavy rotation round here with the aquarium work
  8:13pm doca:

Hey, Mr. Flash Strap, I'm here. Reading, but I'm listening
Avatar 8:15pm Flash Strap:

Hey Doca! Thanks for tuning in
Avatar 8:15pm merk:

Hullo Flash, enjoying the groove this Friday morning on this side of the world. Thank you!
Avatar 8:16pm Flash Strap:

Hey Merk! Which side are you on?
Avatar 8:18pm merk:

The southern side, New Zealand! Where exactly are you based in the world?
Avatar 8:21pm Flash Strap:

Always nice to greet an NZ brother. I'm in St Louis, Missouri. Which is fine, but not really my dream spot or anything
Avatar 8:28pm Flash Strap:

rather be anywhere near a god damn ocean, please
Avatar 8:29pm northguineahills:

Gotta Vamoose, thanks Flash!

Not the same Studio 1 recs, I presume...
Avatar 8:31pm Flash Strap:

thanks for listening NGH, see ya! (and yeah, definitely not THAT studio one)
Avatar 8:33pm merk:

I would say the grass is always greener, though I know nothing of St. Louis. Being near the ocean is no doubt good for soul. As is good music! At least you are close to that.
  8:34pm walkingtrees:

high mountain air does wonders for the soul as well! but i do miss my oceans
Avatar 8:38pm Flash Strap:

Eh, you'd be surprised how relatively little good music there is in these parts. It ain't the old days, whenever those were
  8:48pm walkingtrees:

Avatar 8:56pm coelacanth:

well it must be obvious now that i'd like this show to ALWAYS last 'till 10.

-olá Evan and Explorers.
Avatar 8:58pm Flash Strap:

speaking of the stones: if you want to get really steamed, check out the article on the AV club, "How sticky fingers invented southern rock" or something like that. it's such pure garbage, it's genuinely fascinating
Avatar 8:59pm Flash Strap:

Hey C! I go till ten whenever I can, just for you latecomers, so dear are you to my heart
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Ike:

I mostly adore the A.V. Club and especially its commentariat (one of the few that's as cool as the FMU commentariat) and I don't know much about southern rock, but just from the title, that article looked like hot garbage for sure.
Avatar 9:00pm merk:

Will have to check that article out, sounds hilarious.
Avatar 9:05pm Flash Strap:

I have quite liked AV Club for a long time, and while I'm not ready to ring the funeral bells yet, but they've been leaking talent horribly for a few years now... between this and the "Most Skippable" beatles songs (which included I am the Walrus, and like a 3rd of the Abbey road medley), I've lost what little faith i had in their music section. which was never their strong suit anyway, in my opinion. And now the Dissolve, having leeched all their film writers, is a vastly superior site for flick reviews
Avatar 9:07pm Flash Strap:

i mean, you know... my opinion
Avatar 9:09pm coelacanth:

dear to me you are as well,Evan!
...and if this is a mutual admiration society i should tell you i bought your album on bandcamp. -'sorry i didn't pay more for it, but i did what i could. i spread my bandcamp purchases pretty thin. i try to divide sorta evenly whatever balance i have in my paypal account.
Avatar 9:10pm Flash Strap:

hey man, you coulda had it for free, I wouldn't have minded. Thanks for listening to it, how'd it hold up?
Avatar 9:11pm Flash Strap:

you don't have to answer that, by the way
Avatar 9:15pm Flash Strap:

Whoa! and a super-belated hello to IKE! You look so familiar, I didn't realize you weren't already here. glad to see you
Avatar 9:16pm coelacanth:

'never heard of the "av club",but it sounds like i may be too late!
...i have little patience for the majority of self-appointed authorities anyway.

Flash,if i like something enough to download it,i never take it for free.(unless i don't have the option to pay- which i Love,because it means they're doing alright,i guess!)... i put it in my wishlist 'till i have money in my account if i have to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Ike:

I've never liked their music section much anyway. But now that the Dissolve has dumped Nathan Rabin, the My World of Flops series is back on A.V.! Hooray!
Avatar 9:18pm coelacanth:

-so i've listened to it twice. it's relaxing,obviously. i cannot say more yet! i've been busy with stuff lately.
Avatar 9:23pm coelacanth:

...actually,as i recall, i was moved more by some of the less relaxing tracks! (where there's a dense,subtly wild background. that's how i remember it anyway!)
  9:24pm walkingtrees:

thanks bud!
  9:26pm walkingtrees:

g'night flash
Avatar 9:27pm Flash Strap:

Ike: that's pretty good news! MYOF had some great entries. Though I will say it was nice to see rabin writing with an editor, which they still have at the Dissolve...
Avatar 9:27pm Flash Strap:

Well, thanks Coelacanth. you're good people.
Avatar 9:28pm coelacanth:

Thanks Evan. i'll return for the archive.
ciao y'all.
Avatar 9:28pm Flash Strap:

Thank You, Treeman. Sweet dreams to you and all your future coral
