Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from March 12, 2015 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.

Flashy!

Gary, you old salt! What a pleasure to cross paths with you in this wretched place of all places!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:01pm ndbob:

Heya Flash, Gary, everyone!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:02pm Flash Strap:

Last show was a messy affair. A botched expedition with no survivors. Let's set down this same trail and find better fates this time around.

Hi Bob!

I gotta go help with supper but I'll return.

Missed you all last week. I was busy having a decade-turner of a birthday in sunny Orlando
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:09pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Off to a promising musical start!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:10pm Flash Strap:

Thanks, Kenzo!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:12pm northguineahills:

Huh, Flash Strap, I'll be down in Orlando in 3 weeks. Brother is getting married (ironically in Mexico [rest of the fam lives in FL]). I had to borrow $ from my brother to attend his own wedding, It looks like I'll probably get a jobby job come May if all goes according to plan, then I can finally get my heart again,... (next to my avatar)
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:16pm Flash Strap:

Sounds like a good time, NGH. Where you heading in Mexico?
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:19pm northguineahills:

Cancun. Ironic since next week I have an interview for my wife's immigration process, and I met her in Monterrey, 8 years ago (I have never been to the resort towns in Mexico).

My brothers mentioned there was a lot of purple in Orlando last weekend (yes, they were at that game).
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:21pm Flash Strap:

Best of luck to you in your jobby job man! I hope May does indeed bring good things.

I love Mexico but I've never been to Cancun. Lived in San Miguel de Allende for a couple years but that's all I've seen

Yes sir! To Life!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:28pm northguineahills:

Thanks Flash, I'd like to be financially solvent before my own decade changing solar revolution.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:30pm Flash Strap:

Hrm. Me too, NGH
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:38pm Flash Strap:

Oh, an Here's To You, Brooklyn kid!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:44pm Gary:

Loving this track!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:55pm Flash Strap:

Yeah, Gary, that whole record is a dream melting machine.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:55pm listener james from westwood:

How do and good evening, Flash Strap and all! Apologies for the late arrival. Looking forward to hour 2!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:57pm Flash Strap:

Hello heartily, James
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:57pm northguineahills:

Seems like the connection ain't bad, and that's a rarity any time on the GTDS stream.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:57pm Flash Strap:

Ah, good. good to hear
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:57pm ndbob:

excellent first hour flash - catch the rest on the archive
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:58pm northguineahills:

Off to the grocers, thanks a lot Flash. Great amazing stuff!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:58pm Flash Strap:

Toodles, Bob
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 7:58pm Flash Strap:

Toodles 2, NGH
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:09pm northguineahills:

I've always wanted to get this Joe Henderson album. It's eerie you can recognize Alice w/in the first second. Ok, really going now.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:10pm listener james from westwood:

Not enough musical compositions feature Alice Coltrane.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:14pm Flash Strap:

She's so astonishing
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:16pm Flash Strap:

I have very mixed feelings about this record.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:19pm Flash Strap:

Fanshawe is such a musical doofus
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:21pm Gary:

Bebey, baby!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:23pm Flash Strap:

African electronic music; there is never enough. Bebey is tremendous!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:27pm listener james from westwood:

Would have no idea who he is had I not been ushered into his many delights by WFMU and its mighty DJs. So thankful for this station opening my mind up. (And I'd say that even if it WEREN'T pledge period!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/12/15 8:30pm Uncle Michael:

Hello everyone.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:31pm listener james from westwood:

Hey hey UM! Hope supper came out nicely!
  Thu. 3/12/15 8:31pm Doug Schulkind:

Flashitude!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/12/15 8:33pm Uncle Michael:

I wound up eating the Thai leftovers.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:35pm listener james from westwood:

I'll take Thai leftovers over quite a number of other options.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/12/15 8:35pm Uncle Michael:

Panang curry with beef.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:36pm Flash Strap:

Oo, nice. That's a nice left over my friend.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:36pm listener james from westwood:

I'm supposed to get lunch at a Greek place tomorrow (apologies in advance for tardiness on HDT), but I may argue for a change of venue to the Thai jernt 1 town over.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:37pm Flash Strap:

Hey Doug! Never better than when I see you in the place!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/12/15 8:37pm Uncle Michael:

The restaurants here are pretty weak. We have one Thai place and it's not too bad. I usually get the roast duck with ginger...LOTS of ginger.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/12/15 8:38pm Uncle Michael:

James, you need make no apologies. Your support is appreciated and unassailable.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:38pm Flash Strap:

Hoo, where I am there are four nearby Thai joints, all on the same street, all owned by the same guy, all totally mediocre.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:38pm listener james from westwood:

The hands-down best General Tso's I've ever had (Chef Chang's House, Boston—RIP) was not stingy with the ginger. Oooh baby.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:39pm listener james from westwood:

Danke schoen, UM! I will destroy souvlaki in your honor tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/12/15 8:41pm Uncle Michael:

Evan, if you haven't seen the Wikipedia page for St. Louis cuisine...and the hilarious take-down of it at Gawker...you must.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:42pm Flash Strap:

Oh man, I really must. I miss really really GOOD food being easy to find
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/12/15 8:42pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/12/15 8:43pm Uncle Michael:

As a Chicagoan, I kind of love how Gawker keeps skewering StL over and over and over.

Sorry.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:47pm Flash Strap:

I'm not up on Gawker's assault, but it's pretty fair to say I'm not a committed member of the STL team.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/12/15 8:49pm Uncle Michael:

My resentment towards Cardinal baseball requires an outlet.
  Thu. 3/12/15 8:53pm Yellow Bird:

What was the instrument playing the melody on that JD Emmanuel track?
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:53pm Flash Strap:

Well, I don't karass around sports competitions, but I have my own reasons for antipathy to St. Louie. The enemy of enemy, you understand
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:56pm Flash Strap:

I wish I knew, little bird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/12/15 8:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Listening to the Sinner, but thought I'd check in here and say hello.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:56pm Flash Strap:

The answers may lie here: jdemmanuel.com
  Thu. 3/12/15 8:58pm Yellow Bird:

it sure had a lovely sound
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 8:58pm Flash Strap:

Hello to you, Ken! Thanks for lending a drop-by
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 9:00pm listener james from westwood:

Always listen to the sinners. They're more interesting than the saints.
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 9:00pm Gary:

Aw, man ... great show!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 9:00pm listener james from westwood:

Many thanks, Flash! Glad the stream was kinder to you this week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/12/15 9:02pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks, Evan!
Avatar Thu. 3/12/15 9:03pm Flash Strap:

Ah, me too James! Thanks, all! Good night!
