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.

Hello dear John

..yeh, a few songs are different but I forget details. One version opens with "Break Down the Walls" (as the album /should/!), the other not.

These Sherwood productions are so haunting and visceral, feel like they come from some post-apocalyptic future

Having a hard time focusing on my own show prep this evening. I generally try to clear the decks so I can go Explorer Rooming. I have one ear here and one ear on my pile of possible spins. I will be devoting an hour to the music of Iran on Give the Drummer Some tomorrow. Some gorgeous gobsmackers will be happening!
Avatar Thu. 1/9/20 9:25pm Flash Strap:

That sounds excellent Doug! I was thinking of doing some Iranian music tonight but realized I have very little and know nothing. So I can't wait for your show tomorrow, a necessary corrective and I'm sure a massive pleasure as well
Avatar Thu. 1/9/20 9:29pm Franco Twinkie:

As soon as I am feeling better I want to go out and have Persian food.

Yes ParUbi, Pomegranates are everywhere right now, including smashed all over my moms driveway.

You can get a pomegranate donut up around here, when Holy Donut has 'em. It's a potato doughnut.
