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.

Hyde hello! Seriously. This scene in particular, where she destroys her father to the strains of Temptation: HOLY SHIT
Avatar 7:07pm Flash Strap:

Bob! Hello friend!
Avatar 7:10pm Flash Strap:

@Hyde: she's amazing for sure. I'll never forget the first time I saw her in anything, it was The Big Sleep. She stole the whole film for a few minutes
Avatar 7:14pm hyde:

@Flash i love her in Aldrich's The Last Sunset too
Avatar 7:16pm hyde:

@Flash oh, man. there's lots of other great Sirk movies. the other fifties melodramas are amazing.

Sirk let's you see the true weirdness of American culture.

@geezerette exactly, the outsider's perspective!
Avatar 7:22pm Flash Strap:

Yeah I just need to knock them all down one by one
Avatar 7:22pm hyde:

i also like Lured and Shockproof, which are great noirs. there's also Sign of the Pagan with Jack Palance as Atilla the Hun, which, y'know, has Jack Palance playing Atilla the Hun
Avatar 7:23pm hyde:

the one i have never seen that i need to see is his western, Taza, Son of Cochise

I see what you mean! Wow!
Avatar 7:37pm geezerette:

There was a cult called Arica. Some 70s thing. Cults were an industry.
Avatar 7:37pm geezerette:

Cue Siren.
Avatar 7:39pm Flash Strap:

I never heard of that! I wonder if cult and band are related

not that uncommon to the 1970s cult industry to have a record

I don't think so though
Avatar 7:40pm geezerette:

Good question!
Avatar 7:40pm ndbob:

great song here - think it might be a remake - but a good one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm JtotheK:

good evening Flash Strap and explorers.
Avatar 7:42pm Flash Strap:

hmm i wonder if that's right. I hate when i get waylaid by a remake. happens a lot in surf as well
Avatar 7:43pm Flash Strap:

hello and welcome J–K
Avatar 7:45pm ndbob:

@Evan HMM actually not thinking here - the Jesters is a remake of the Diablos record
Avatar 7:45pm Flash Strap:

i haven't listened to this LP hardly at all, but this cut is killer
Avatar 7:46pm Flash Strap:

@bob: ah yes, i have that one as well
Avatar 7:49pm geezerette:

God,all the dipictions of needlessly tortured romance in 50s flicks & "adult" records.

I hope you're all imagining this song being sung, in Scarlett O'Hara's daydream, by one of her slaves, to her

The Ventures' interpretation of 'Eight Miles High' is really interesting & kewl : The bYRdS being so much about Vocals...

fwiw, the surf set has been great low level music for my annoying sportsy monitoring of the nba draft

glad to be of service Hyde

agreed Rabbit
Avatar 8:35pm geezerette:

Cowabunga RevRab and hyde!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& one pet topic is the ways in which the common myth that there was nothing betwixt Elvis in the Army & The Beatles in America - is true - & is definitely *not* true. Surf is one of the more important cornerstones there - especially for the future of Rawk Guitar (ferinstance). Dick Dale was pushing amplifier volume & limitations w/ Fender on the West Coast - & Fender amps were the direct model for the Marshall amps in England that The Who would help pioneer - & the rest is HardRawk history...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Surf & Drag (cars I mean) Culture has been sited as the earliest dropout DIY Alternative kulture in a lot of ways too...(&tc. &tc.)...
Avatar 8:42pm geezerette:

There were Beach Boys vs Beatles competitions an American radio early on.
Dick Dale lives in the Mojave desert & I think he's still touring!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm melinda:

I read that he is still touring and with serious chronic pain and other health problems.
Avatar 8:46pm geezerette:

Yes melinda,he's had cancer. I think the music keeps him going.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The BBoys v. Beatles dynamic is relevant to this day I think. I've thot about it long enuff that I concluded that the B.Boys emotional root tone is the Pre-Kennedy Assassination America - & The Beatles share in that w/ also a lot of the hope for a Revolutionary world beyond that. There is heavy Nostalgia as a them &/or tone in both bands.
I'm just old enuff that The Ventures had riffs that were important in teaching us guitar - like the yARdbiRds were.
Heard just a little Shadows from England - & they're like the British Ventures - very kewl rekkids that you never hear anywhere...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

(as a *themE...)
Avatar 8:50pm geezerette:

Rev Rab I was thinking about the Shadows!
Avatar 8:52pm hyde:

word is in that bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley has died at 89 today. i think this guy was a real giant of american music.

@JtotheK yeah, you took Thon Maker, at 10 who's a 7' 1" guy who was born in Sudan, moved to Australia and then to the States. He's really raw.
Avatar 8:58pm Flash Strap:

you know, I love joe meek, but next to most other surf recordings, his always sound like they were made by anemic robots. that's the appeal, I know, but man he doesn't look good standing next to link wray
Avatar 8:58pm geezerette:

O Death is a terrifying song. Reverend Gary Davis had an equally sobering song about death,can't think of the name.
Ralph Stanley was a great one alright.
Avatar 9:00pm Flash Strap:

There are just so many more versions of this composition than I would have guessed. I love that. I love variations on a theme.
Avatar 9:02pm geezerette:

Loved finding out that Harrison's impromptu audition for Beatles was "Rumble".
Avatar 9:02pm hyde:

@geezerette i consider the Stanley Brothers Rich-R-Tone 78's to be among the most amazing American songs of the 20th century. I'd shoot that stuff to the stars if it were up to me.
Avatar 9:02pm geezerette:

LOVE Raymond Scott!!!
Avatar 9:03pm geezerette:

I'm with you hyde!
Avatar 9:03pm Flash Strap:

he's so amazing, it's actually unbelievable, and seems like it must be a dream
Avatar 9:05pm Flash Strap:

this is completely my favorite Artie Shaw recording
Avatar 9:05pm geezerette:

Raymond Scott's music is such an important part of the Looney Toons world.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@geez: 'Raunchy', actually. & what Paul played for John when they met was Eddie Cochran's '20 Flight Rock'. Impressive he could tune the guitar, & knew the whole thing...What John was singing when Paul 1st saw him was the DelVikings' 'Come & Go With Me' - but he didn't know all the words & was making up edgier ones - which impressed Paul...
Learned that some of what I admired Carl Stalling for was actually Raymond Scott. & Scott got a lot of flack for his style @ the time, I think is the story...

Thanks for the Bucks draft update, Hyde!

Hyde, you are excused and beyond. I'm just pleased to have you in any capacity.
Avatar 9:57pm geezerette:

Well this is interesting! Irwin Chusid / Raymod Scott connection...

"His legacy underwent a revival in the early 1990s after Irwin Chusid met Raymond and his wife Mitzi at their home in California and discovered a vast collection of unreleased recordings of rehearsals and studio sessions.[15] In 1992, the release of Reckless Nights and Turkish Twilights on Columbia produced by Irwin Chusid (with Hal Willner as executive producer) was the first major-label CD compilation of his groundbreaking 1937–39 six-man quintet. A year earlier, Irwin Chusid and Will Friedwald produced a CD of live Scott quintet broadcasts titled The Man Who Made Cartoons Swing for the Stash label. Around this time, the director of The Ren & Stimpy Show, John Kricfalusi, began hot-wiring his cartoon episodes with original Scott quintet recordings."

Avatar 9:59pm Flash Strap:

that is really interesting. i confess i don't know as much about this stuff as i should, both as a jazz and animation lover
