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.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 3/7/19 6:48pm Uncle Michael:

No phone pledges to alt-stream shows, alas. When you pledge online you can designate multiple shows as honorees of your largess, divisible by a $10 per show minimum. It requires even distribution on a combined pledge, but you can designate any amount on a pledge-per-show basis. You can make separate unpaid "send me a bill" pledges and the office staff will add them all up into one bill.

To my knowledge, not one split second of shitty flute. I've already listened via stream to 2/3 of the 26 CDs. I'm familiar with a surprising majority of it. When the box arrives, I'm looking forward to driving the family and neighbors crazy.
