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.

Avatar 7:39pm hyde:

as ducks go, you have to love the Northern Shoveler. (would make a good band name). I think those sorts of ducks are shellfish diggers (hence the name, and just look at that bill) but i think as eating goes (apologies to anyone who doesn't like eating birds) that makes them, well, a little fishy

Melvin Jackson = longtime bassist in the Eddie Harris Quartet & cowriter of some of his coolest compositions, inc. Silver Cycles.
