Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from July 5, 2016 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.

Ah, swing it cowboy!

Hey everyone. I just spoke with Evan Crankshaw, and learned that he has lost power in a thunderstorm. Looks like the show tonight will most likely not happen.
  Tue. 7/5/16 6:09pm Dean:

Bummer, for him and for us.

Stay safe, Admiral Von Strap!
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:14pm Doug Schulkind:

Hello friends! I am in fog-bound Stonington, Maine, in a house with Wifi.

  Tue. 7/5/16 6:15pm Dean:

Stream manipulation? Is that legal?
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:15pm Doug Schulkind:

I will stay three spins ahead of the constable.
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:17pm Doug Schulkind:

C'mon everyone, add your requests.
  Tue. 7/5/16 6:18pm Dean:

Apropos of enchanted tangos, some live Piazzolla, perhaps?
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:20pm Doug Schulkind:

Up next is Louis Armstrong (yesterday was his birthday). Some Piazzolla is next!
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:25pm Doug Schulkind:

The Piazzolla isn't live, but it is a lovely duet with Jorge Luis Borges.
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:26pm Doug Schulkind:

What would you like to hear after the Astor Piazzolla?!?
  Tue. 7/5/16 6:28pm Dean:

Pizzolla/Borges sounds terrific.

John Carter/Bobby Bradford or, better yet, John Carter w/ Gianluigi Trovesi
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:31pm Doug Schulkind:

Carter/Bradford coming up next...
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:31pm Doug Schulkind:

Looks like I'm your own personal deejay, Dean.
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:33pm Doug Schulkind:

In about 10 minutes, we will be tossing 12 lobsters into the boil. Will keep this going until they turn bright red.
  Tue. 7/5/16 6:33pm Dean:

My birthday was Friday. I got my wish!
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:33pm Doug Schulkind:

I await your next REQUEST!
  Tue. 7/5/16 6:34pm Dean:

Sun Ra and Walt Dickerson
  Tue. 7/5/16 6:36pm Dean:

...and then something over-the-top funky.
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:37pm Doug Schulkind:

Don't have Sun Ra/ Walt Dickerson. I queued up Sun Ra's "Hiroshima."
  Tue. 7/5/16 6:38pm Dean:

Oh, wow. I've never heard.
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:39pm Doug Schulkind:

Sun Ra is on deck; Maceo Parker is in the hole!
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:42pm Doug Schulkind:

Ready to cue up more requests!
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:45pm Doug Schulkind:

Sun Ra on pipe organ!
  Tue. 7/5/16 6:46pm Dean:

This is amazing.
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:47pm Doug Schulkind:

We aim to please, Dean.
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:52pm Doug Schulkind:

My lobsters are ready to unsubmerge. I will take my leave. Sun Ra will take you until two minutes before the top of the hour, then Maceo Parker will funk you over the top.

Love and lobsters to all!
  Tue. 7/5/16 6:52pm Dean:

Holdsworth-era Soft Machine?
  Tue. 7/5/16 6:53pm Dean:

Thank you. Enjoy your embarrassed lobsters.
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 6:57pm Doug Schulkind:

8 lobsters are done, 4 more to go. We have a party of seven (eight, if you include the dog), ready to dine al fresco about 20 feet from the Atlantic Ocean.
  Tue. 7/5/16 6:58pm Dean:

I'm a couple miles from the Pacific. Probably can't make it to Maine in time...
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 7:01pm Doug Schulkind:

I would Fedex you one, but the dog says no.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/5/16 7:34pm Jeff Golick:

Aw geez. Missed the all request oldies show. Hope all is ok in Flash Strap land.
  Tue. 7/5/16 7:44pm northguineahills:

They were playing Sun Ra on the main stream at the same time as on this stream, but that seems to happen often.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/5/16 7:58pm melinda:

hi flash & friends!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/5/16 8:02pm coelacanth:

hi everyone.
so, is this the stream?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/5/16 8:03pm coelacanth:

(duh - that is, the song about a chevy right now?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/5/16 8:06pm coelacanth:

{...my guess is - Yes!}
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 7/5/16 8:39pm Uncle Michael:

Doug, you are my hero.
Avatar    Tue. 7/5/16 8:59pm Mayuko:

oh no Evan! I got home and tuned in now - hope you're ok!
Avatar Wed. 7/6/16 2:07am Flash Strap:

Power came back at midnight, internet came back at 2 AM. Some storm, and some fuckin' timing: the lights went out two minutes to showtime.

Missed you all terribly. See you next week.

And Doug, god damn do I admire you, sir. Thank you for filling in my failure to fill for you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/6/16 12:24pm Brian in UK:

Now that is true exotica, where you have to imagine the whole show.
Not the end of the world, FS. Chin up. old bean.
