Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from March 19, 2020 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.

Well, I still report to work, not liking the waiting in line to go in a store, and then the store being out of everything (what's wrong with people?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm WR:

Oh snap, the Cuban sounds flowed so well from the GTD stream (which I listen to as much as with a host) that I didn't realize Explorer's Room had started.

I've set up my work laptop for the time being, until I can get a new one -- I now only need to worry about the used mac I'm streaming from ... but [knocks wood] should be okay for a bit. Is this an Exotica Roots show? haha
