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.

Hey, Mr. Flash Strap and listeners!

I like that Pauline Anna Strom thing. I think I found that at that Sounds of the Dawn site you ref'ed in your New Age show.

Hey Hyde! Hey Carm! Doca!
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 7:17pm hyde:

doca, your icon seems way fitting for this particular show
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 7:18pm Flash Strap:

I really marvel at this song in particular
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 7:19pm doca:

Hahah that's true, @hyde, it usually happens on Flash Strap's show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 7:19pm Carmichael:

That's because Doca is headin' out to Eden, yeah brother ...
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 7:19pm Flash Strap:

who is your avatar Doca? it looks so familiar
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 7:21pm Carmichael:

@Flash: it's the lead singer for the Good Ol' Boys, from the Blues Brothers. He was a space hippie in an old Star Trek.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 7:21pm doca:

Yeah, will you play the space hippie song, @Flash Strap?
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 7:22pm Flash Strap:

Man, I knew it was Star Trek
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 7:22pm Flash Strap:

I don't know that song!
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 7:23pm Flash Strap:

I gotta see this ep of Trek. I love classic Star Trek, but I have a lot of catching up to do
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 7:23pm hyde:

it's the one where Spock plays the bicycle wheel!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 7:23pm doca:

@hyde: And where he jams with the space hippies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 7:25pm doca:

Changing the subject, saw this a couple of days ago on Facebook and thought about sharing here:

Thanks Carmichael
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 7:29pm northguineahills:

Eddie Callahan and his song sounded familiar for some reason.
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 7:29pm Gary:

This one almost sounds more new wavy than wavy gravy ... but I like it
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 7:30pm Flash Strap:

Dude, Eddie Callahan's False Ego is a toe-curling masterpiece. I highly recommend memorizing it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 7:30pm Carmichael:

And Spock jamming: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 7:30pm Flash Strap:

Yeah this one is really lo-fi Ziggy glam-style

This isn't a radio show, it is a PhD thesis defense.
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 8:09pm Flash Strap:

this track has haunted me for years now. I'm not sure I've even heard the rest of the record more than twice, but this track 100 times

@flashstrap: I was referring to hyde's comment ;p

Nice sounds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 8:35pm coelacanth:

it's okay. we can call that one a normal one and the longer ones extravagant.

Hi Ike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 8:45pm melinda:

I like the whistling. Very evocative. Psychadelic western.
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 8:45pm Flash Strap:

That's a deal, C. Though I guess that makes me an extravagant fellow
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 8:45pm Flash Strap:

I know! the thing is, they're almost impossibly square at the same time
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 8:45pm hyde:

some serious Alessandro Alessandroni ripoff whistlin' goin on in this one
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 8:46pm hyde:

heh, melinda beat me to it
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 8:47pm Flash Strap:

they did a really strange concept album with tons of synths at one point, but it's still mired in midwestern Jewish lounge music. It's sort of Jewish mystic bowling alley music, I guess
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 8:49pm melinda:

I'm going to have to look into these Kaplan brothers then.
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 8:49pm Flash Strap:

that's some good theremin. thick.

yeah they're really cool, Melinda

holy heck, that George Stavis. Dang.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 8:52pm coelacanth:

Evan- you? extravagant? ..that's like calling Doug the King of Puns!

...and this is extraordinary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 8:53pm Uncle Michael:

Good evening...terribly late as usual...
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 8:53pm Doug Schulkind:

Jewish mystic bowling alley music. I just needed to repeat that particular phrase. Thank you. Please continue.
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 8:54pm Flash Strap:

Wonderful to have you with us at all Uncle! Why, you're welcome at this doorstep at any hour!
Avatar Thu. 11/19/15 8:55pm Flash Strap:

The king of puns has spoken, and he has my turning of a phrase. Perhaps I AM extravagant, after all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 8:55pm coelacanth:

and there's Professor Pun now!
yes that phrase should be repeated often and with conviction.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/19/15 8:55pm Uncle Michael:

My grandfather was a Jewish mystic bowler. He's said to have been good enough to have been a professional. What I'd have given to have heard Chris Schenkel say his name just once.
