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.

Flash, when you say NC is your ancestral homeland, are you talking recent or distant ancestors?

hi ndbob!

Missed your first mic set, but really dug the Boundless, Evan.
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 7:23pm Flash Strap:

actually, that was a pretty off-base joke on my part: I moved to NC when I was a boy, and grew up there, but I have no ancestral ties whatsoever. More a feeling of affinity than anything.

Affinity is what matters most!

@ndbob: U of Iowa in Iowa City. moved to New England after 10 years cause I needed a change, and a lot of friends had left, but I have very fond memories of those years.
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 7:42pm spookcityusa:

i came in waaaay too late. ferrante & teicher is my jam. i have one of their cheesier ones from the sixties, maybe something about romantical strings, utterly captivating though.

ha, Gary! I am young enough that I think of it as an almost "lost" Bowie album. It's one of my very very favorites

I can talk F&T all night, man. They are pretty amazing when they try to be. Got a pretty decent collection of their early stuff going. Just scored a vinyl copy of Soundproof, the one with the UFO on the cover!
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 7:45pm ndbob:

@Melinda sounds good - I used to stop in Iowa City when I would drive from North Dakota to Maryland - when I moved a couple years ago it was one of three places I had narrowed it down to - but I chose Bloomington, Indiana
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 7:46pm Flash Strap:

@melinda: I love New England... was in Boston for 8 years. Got too cold, but I miss it dearly
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/10/15 7:49pm melinda:

@ndbob: Indiana U was one of my other school possibilities. Good art dept., and I'd seen Breaking Away as a child and it left a lasting (positive) impression of Bloomington. The other school I looked into was Webster University in.....St. Louis. Haha.
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 7:49pm spookcityusa:

all i really know about bloomington is that rapider than hosepower are from there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/10/15 7:51pm melinda:

@flash: I tolerate the cold ok but less so with passing years.
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 7:51pm Flash Strap:

I don't know much about Webster, but I can confidently say that no one should ever associate with Wash. U unless they want massive agony and pointless cruelty to be a regular part of their lives.

Love Breaking Away, that area's where my true ancestral heritage arises from
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 7:53pm ndbob:

@melinda Both the movie and TV shows of "Breaking Away" are good - and not as cold as Iowa City here - after five years in North Dakota I'd had enough of extreme cold - though Iowa City isn't nearly that cold

This Mike Cooper is new to me and totally great.
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 7:58pm Flash Strap:

Me too Danny! the whole album is sublime–in keeping with his others in the vein, but almost more lush and abstract

AH! Love Bali Ha'i. In almost all its incarnations. Such a lovely tune
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 7:59pm ndbob:

I think my favorite might be Tak Shindo's version. But there are so many good takes
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/10/15 8:06pm Little Danny:

Flash, when you get a spare second in the coming months you should look up Houston & Dorsey's version of "Ebb Tide." It is so you.

I love this record... I have 2 copies, one in stereo, which we're hearing, called Shangri-La, and one in mono, same cover, but titled BEWITCHED
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 8:12pm Flash Strap:

heh, bumped the turntable. sorry all!
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 8:12pm Sadhu Sadhu:

it's extraordinary and i don't know why i never sought out more of their music.

i know! they always used to just pathologically anglicize all those latin pronunciations... there's that one Bing&Andrews Sisters track, "See ya in Bahia" where they just insist on pronouncing it Ba-HEE-ya, it always cracks me up. And sort of infuriates me
