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.

Um, uh oh – I had to do some maintenance on our primary stream server, and I carefully checked to make sure nobody was in the process of doing a live show when I started and swapped stream server DNS, but I forgot to check again when I swapped back.

So... I think our DJ is feeding the backup stream server which was briefly the primary while I was doing the work, and people who've been listening from the beginning will still be hearing him, but people who connect fresh now won't hear the right thing.

Hmm... I think I need to change back and leave the backup in front until after 10PM, that's probably the least disruptive thing.

Corsican, like Sardinian, is usually considered a separate language from standard Italian (Tuscan). Don't get me started on the various dialects of Sardinian and Corsican, it's maddening for such small geographies....
Avatar Thu. 5/23/19 9:15pm Flash Strap:

the fable here involves a pangolin and an orycterope (aardvark) stumbling across an abandoned woman who's just given birth only moments before, and deciding to help her and care for her. nice story i have to say
Avatar Thu. 5/23/19 9:16pm northguineahills:

You are correct, Evan, much Greek influence in almost Mediterranean island due to first, Greek colonies, and later, Byzantine Empire possessions. There is still a few small Greek speaking communities in south Italy (on the south mainland).

I'd love to see Corsica, and I declined a chance to do so when I visited France after meeting one of the students I mentioned above. But mostly I plan to live my last few years on Cyprus. Never been there. Doesn't matter. It's where I'll be composted.

(Uyghurs are Turkic, Tuvan, Mongol).

I had a Mongolian neighbor who waxed nostalgic about Mongolian throat singing.

Heh, was just thinking about Eliade yesterday. Yes, Sacred and Profane, Patterns in Comparative Religion, Myth of the Eternal Return...

Wax Nostalgic would be a killer radio show name.

I just recently started saying whack. I like it.
  Thu. 5/23/19 9:42pm Dean:

As an adjective, noun, or verb?

You want harpsichord? I recently picked up Kenneth Gilbert's Harmonia Mundi double LP of Handel's grand suites, pristine condition, ten bucks. I could bathe in the sound. Then there's the Michel Kiener recital of the Goldberg Variations on a double Cercle Kallistos (Yves Bernard Andre) LP, the sound of which is scary real.

ronald mcdonald trump

"ronald whackdonald trump"

For me, same effect from Kavi Alexander's Water Lily Acoustics LP featuring Hamza el Din. I had to look up when he hit that drum...

Hello all you lovely people, I urge and encourage you to tune in to the Drummer Stream on Saturday evening as we will be premiering a brand-new radio show!

Gina Bacon hosts Someday Matinee, live from Delgado Guitars in Nashville, Tennessee! Gina will have wonderful artists, bands and other characters on the show for live performance and conversation.

The show will air every Saturday, 5-7pm (eastern).

LD, does the party feature twelve kegs? Buddy of mine wanted to name his band 12 Kegs, so the fliers would read, "Party with 12 Kegs!"
Avatar Thu. 5/23/19 9:57pm northguineahills:

Happy thanks, Flash!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/23/19 9:57pm coelacanth∅:

i'd rather have 3 pints of good brew than 12 kegs of what's usually in party kegs
  Thu. 5/23/19 9:57pm Dean:

Of course, the other approach is to name the band Live Nude Girls.
  Thu. 5/23/19 9:59pm Dean:

I'd take a keg or twelve of Pliny the Younger.

I knew someone who made a movie with that title (or similar)@Dean

only once did i go to a party with kegs worth tapping. one was mother's milk and the other, another fine keegan brew.
