Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from June 4, 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.

This particular record is one of the best there is. Birthed onto the net by none other than Little Danny of Office Naps, if I'm not mistaken

@Evan Office Naps is great - forgot all about it
