Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from January 3, 2019 Favoriting

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

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.

oh man. Good Luck Doug.
i know for myself if getting food in or keeping it there is an issue it's either miso soup; warm ginger/licorice tea with honey; or lemon-ginger-echinacea juice that breaks it...in all cases taken in minute sips at first with breaks in between.
