Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from July 9, 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.

Take it away Flash!

Thanks Kaminsky! Hated missing Field Service today, but I'm certain it was great as usual
  7:05pm Dean:

Is this Angela entering a courtroom in the case arising out of the Marin County courthouse shooting? If so, that's Howard Moore, Jr., her attorney. I've done some work for him. Cool guy.
Avatar 7:07pm Flash Strap:

I can't tell if that's him or not, but without a doubt you're on the money about the rest. Cool you worked for him, Dean.
Avatar 7:08pm Flash Strap:

This track has some weird skips, but what are you gonna do? certainly they aren't the worst problems in evidence
  7:10pm Dean:

Looks like a young Howard.
Avatar 7:10pm Flash Strap:

oh hahahaha
Avatar 7:11pm Flash Strap:

laughing at the skip, not Howard
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm listener james from westwood:

Now that skip was epic.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm listener james from westwood:

I dig old dramas like this. Heard another good one on FMU ages ago, early-arly morning Saturday, while I was driving north to CT. Wanted to pull over at the edge of the reception range, right on the highway shoulder, so I could hear the rest, but the end remains a mystery.
Avatar 7:17pm Flash Strap:

yeah, I played that one mostly because it's so blisteringly offensive, but I really do love the whole World Adventurer's series. Love-Hate-Love, I guess
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Carmichael:

Flash, my brutha.
Avatar 7:19pm Flash Strap:

Carmichael. What it is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm listener james from westwood:

@Flash: It's like reading Lovecraft. Luxuriate in the world-building, choke on one's coffee over the name he gave a protagonist's black cat.
Avatar 7:27pm Flash Strap:

Exactly, man. Exactly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Carmichael:

And Whitey's on the Moon.
  7:38pm Dean:

Let's not forget this gem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BomP2ey0eT8 "RECOMMENDED FOR MATURE AUDIENCES"
Avatar 7:40pm Flash Strap:

I'll have to click that link later, Dean, but consider my curiosity piqued
  7:43pm Dean:

Let's just say it is a response to the events symbolized by the GIF.
Avatar 7:46pm Flash Strap:

jayne cortez is so awesome
Avatar 7:48pm Flash Strap:

Speaking of awesome, man: Camille Yarbrough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm listener james from westwood:

Oh yes indeed.
Avatar 7:54pm Flash Strap:

Is it even worth pointing out that some of the most brilliant, enlightened minds of the movement were women? Or does it go better without saying?
Avatar 7:55pm Holly in NC:

Hi all! Sorry to be so late, but so glad to be here! Already know this is show to be savored in full.
Avatar 7:56pm Flash Strap:

Holly! Very nice to see you this evening, thanks for gracing us
Avatar 7:57pm Holly in NC:

Thank YOU for having me! Always a pleasure to be here, archives while wonderful are just not the same.
  7:57pm Dean:

Andrea Fucking Dworkin. Has to be said. She, too, was brilliant, enlightened, and strong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm listener james from westwood:

How do, Holly! Hope the evening's being kind to you.
Avatar 7:58pm ndbob:

Avatar 8:52pm coelacanth:

what song are the bg singers singing? it is part of what was a radio hit back in the day,but i cannot place it.
Avatar 8:55pm Flash Strap:

I can't place it either
Avatar 8:57pm hyde:

this is great
Avatar 9:04pm coelacanth:

i figured out what it was, and i think Mr.Shepp just borrowed the vocal arrangement.. ."high priest of memphis" by bell & arc.
Avatar 9:06pm Holly in NC:

Thank you, flash.
Avatar 9:07pm Flash Strap:

hey, thank you Holly
Avatar 9:08pm Flash Strap:

Avatar 9:11pm Flash Strap:

"yeah!" I love these guys in the background
Avatar 9:11pm coelacanth:

yeah,i could narrate this one along with him
Avatar 9:16pm Flash Strap:

This isn't really his track to shine, exactly, but I've been really getting into Eddie Harris these days. He's amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm listener james from westwood:

Many thanks, Flash! Sobering yet beautiful show.
Avatar 9:20pm hyde:
