Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from April 16, 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.

Wow Glenn that's really something
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:15pm glenn:

they're going to take over the world. forget the insects.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/16/15 7:16pm Uncle Michael:

Our raccoons would climb 58 stories if they thought there were tortillas up there.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:20pm Flash Strap:

They're basically the octopus of the land: freaky smart, alien, frighteningly capable
Avatar    Thu. 4/16/15 7:20pm hyde:

nice. i found a raccoon on my 4th floor balcony once in cambridge, but i guess that's nothing.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:22pm Flash Strap:

I love the vocals on this track, s Baxter, yet so French soundtrack
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:25pm glenn:

i like them. i know they're a complete pain in the ass, but they are everything flash says.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:27pm ndbob:

I have a friend who used to fed them until it got out of control - 40 once in her back yard
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:27pm Flash Strap:

I grew up with chickens, so I was essentially trained by circumstance to view them as the enemy, but they are so magical and intelligent I can't help but love them now. The HANDS
Avatar    Thu. 4/16/15 7:28pm hyde:

@Glenn they are cool. and they're bold as hell. in the town i grew up in, i came home one night, opened the garage door to park the car and spied a raccoon going through the garbage. he paused for a second to check me out, and then went straight back to pawing through the garbage.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:29pm ndbob:

I'm more of a rat person though
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:29pm Flash Strap:

Rats are cool, too.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:38pm Flash Strap:

This one has that Touch of Evil sense of hot Latin sweat and misdeeds about to be done in torrid black and white
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:40pm Flash Strap:

This one too. So noir
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/16/15 7:41pm Uncle Michael:

Is that Joseph Conrad having a drink with Somerset Maugham?
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:43pm Flash Strap:

Well, it better not be Pierre Loti sipping absinthe with Montesquieu! I told them to take a few days off before they wreck my place again
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:56pm Doug Schulkind:

Many of our WFMU brethren and sistren are want to pronounce the name Ro-ZHAY Ro-ZHAY. I like Rodger Rodger better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/16/15 7:58pm Uncle Michael:

My latest library music spelunk is into British tv test card music.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:58pm Gary:

Howdy!
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:58pm Flash Strap:

Huh, I bet that's actually pretty accurate, though I wonder if it would have such a hard ZHAY, or more of a ZHER. Still, it's the hard G for me
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:58pm Flash Strap:

Howdy Gary! Amazing show yesterday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/16/15 7:59pm Uncle Michael:

I'd have assumed Ro-ZHER
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 7:59pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Evan - catch the rest on the archive
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:00pm Flash Strap:

Have a great night, Bob
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:01pm Flash Strap:

Also, Hi Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/16/15 8:01pm Uncle Michael:

Sorry I missed it, Gary. I've missed a lot lately...for various reasons. Sometimes the reason is baseball and/or hockey, I'm afraid. Last night it was "and."
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Careful with that assuming thing, UM.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:02pm Gary:

No sorries!

Greetings Flash and Explorers.

Hello, you primal old fish you. You're most welcome in this fish tank
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:15pm Gary:

That last track was off the charts. How have I never heard of Nardini before?
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:15pm Flash Strap:

You know, you don't look much like a coelecanth. Are you sure you're not a chimera?
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:16pm Flash Strap:

Man, I am so pleased, just pleased a punch, if I get to be the fellow who introduces you to Nardini. He is so cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/16/15 8:18pm coelacanth:

i promise i wont eat any other fish while i'm here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/16/15 8:21pm Ike:

@UM, yes, but only 75-watt bulbs.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:24pm Flash Strap:

What do you guys want to hear next week? I'm thinking all-Donovan, but I could do a big non-exotic jazz/electronic Umiliani marathon. Or mystery bag Exotica.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/16/15 8:24pm coelacanth:

(...i wont say my parents didn't cross some boundaries.)

glenn - Thanks for that interesting link, but i see no racoon in the photo.
(?)
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:24pm Gary:

Donovan!
Avatar    Thu. 4/16/15 8:25pm hyde:

@Flash I do love Umilani so....
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:26pm Gary:

But, wait -- who is it then?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/16/15 8:32pm Uncle Michael:

Peter O'Toole played Eric Swann in the biopic.
Avatar    Thu. 4/16/15 8:33pm hyde:

according to this piece in the 2008 Best Music writing, it sounds like the fake Nino Nardini record was put out by a guy named Gabe Roth, who apparently did a lot of fake records on Desco books.google.com...
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:37pm Flash Strap:

Thanks for trackin that down, Hyde
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:41pm Flash Strap:

Man, Roger is such a playful composer, so full of little tricks
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:42pm Doug Schulkind:

Bloody hell this is good.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:43pm Flash Strap:

So it's Gary vs. Hyde on the Donovan/Umiliani debate?
Avatar    Thu. 4/16/15 8:44pm hyde:

i guess he's the Daptone Records guy. he says in the piece that they mainly put out the fake records because they sold, whereas when they put out the same music under a real name no one wanted to buy it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/16/15 8:44pm Uncle Michael:

I'm holding out for a Edmundo Ros/Piero Piccione throwdown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/16/15 8:44pm Ike:

Wild.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:47pm Flash Strap:

UM- Oh, boy. I'd have to really prep for that one.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:48pm Gary:

Hyde should win - he found out who the fake Nardini was
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/16/15 8:48pm Uncle Michael:

James Last/Les Humphries?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/16/15 8:50pm ikє:

Do you mean "Hurdy Gurdy Man" Donovan, or some other Donovan?
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:50pm Flash Strap:

There is only one Donovan that I even want to know about, and it is he of the Hurdy Gurdy
Avatar    Thu. 4/16/15 8:51pm fleep:

Well, this solves a mystery for me. Old Paul Terry 'Farmer Al Falfa' silent cartoons were bought by Common Wealth and had library music added on, which is burned into my brain (and maybe yours). The opening music is a frantic jokey number and I never knew it had a name until today. It's Komic Kapers by Roger Roger. Thanks, FS!

Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:53pm Flash Strap:

Wow, that's so cool. It's actually really rare that I hear production library music that I already know in its natural habitat. But that's definitely the embryonic reason I love the stuff so much
Avatar    Thu. 4/16/15 8:56pm hyde:

I can't win because of a two minute web search! plus, Donovan is cool too. My internet is flaking something firce right now, so I'm gonna say thanks for the show and sign off.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:57pm Flash Strap:

I mean, this stuff gets into all of us just by osmosis and media saturation. We are all already born knowing Raymond Scott's cartoon music, for example
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:58pm Gary:

Hyde, that article you found is hilarious
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:58pm Flash Strap:

bye Hyde! thanks for hangin out! Umiliani soon (but maybe Donovan first, I'm on a real kick)
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 8:58pm Flash Strap:

I gotta read it when this is over
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/16/15 8:58pm Uncle Michael:

It's Carl Stalling's world. We were just born into it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/16/15 8:59pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks, Evan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 4/16/15 9:00pm coelacanth:

i've learned something here today...

Thank you Flash Strap! i will return.
ciao primates.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 9:00pm Gary:

The show was great; thank you, Flash!
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 9:03pm Gary:

The article is missing the first page or possibly two, but still a fun read, what's there
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 9:05pm Doug Schulkind:

So excellent, really. Every minute of it. This show.
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 9:06pm Flash Strap:

Aw shucks. Well, you'd know. Thanks man
Avatar Thu. 4/16/15 9:07pm Flash Strap:

Thanks everyone for listening!
