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.

Splitting up pledges and prize eligibility:

You can split both one-time and monthly "Swag For Life pledges" across multiple shows. But to be eligible for prizes, the split amount has to divide into at least $20/show.

Oh, man, major flashback: a high school friend lived near enough to a zoo that when we would all leave his house late at night, we could hear the peacocks in the distance.

I used to live across the street from the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. With the front windows open, we could hear beasts.

Now, my neighbor across the creek has peacocks.

on the plus side, everything else tonight is hot juicy wax! YES

h’lo!

Any CDs (I hope) ?

SHIT.

Oh well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:11pm northguineahills:

Vinyl would tickle me turquoise. (the marathon is one of the few loopholes I have of acquiring physical musical media, but, cds work as well).

more cds next week, Scraps. but the one we have, it's a good one!

Ah, as long as you're not expecting them to credit dollar amounts to shows other than where the dollars landed....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:13pm northguineahills:

On Doug's show a few years back, I was busy at work, and didn't know I received a big prize, so it was a welcome surprise when the swag finally came.

This comp, is easy to love. Unfortunately for those easily afflicted with Acquisitive Sun Ra Syndrome, however, the temptation to dig out all of the source sessions is an everpresent danger

I have a decent piece of gear for ripping vinyl, but think I've only done it about 3 times, such a PIA!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:27pm Uncle Michael:

I'd like to see some more premium-level pledges!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:27pm Stepchild:

even geared up, it's a daunting thing -- especially if one is "of a certain age" and has a largish vinyl collection, one begins to ask "how many more times am I going to listen to this recording I am ripping in real time and editing in extra time?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:27pm Uncle Michael:

YW!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:27pm Stepchild:

gonna get there Michael, there and beyond
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:28pm doctorjazz:

That's me, @Stepchild. Think I'd die before I finished ripping all the vinyl.
Avatar Thu. 3/8/18 7:29pm Flash Strap:

It's more fun rippin' when you're just grabbing choice tracks, tbh
Avatar Thu. 3/8/18 7:30pm Flash Strap:

yeah, what UM said, I need more people to hear this premium o' mine! labor of love it is
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:31pm Uncle Michael:

Let's get on that widget! Don't make Evan go all Dr. Gene Scott on you all.

You think I would rip vinyl, seeing as I've lived at my house for 7 months and I have yet to hook up my gramophones.

perfect congrats
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:43pm Scraps:

Argh. I tried to say why, and stay around, but I kept getting mad explaining why. 2018 is Wax Ascending (except Bodega Pop, bless them). It’s not just you, so I don’t want to get mad at you. Jeez, I named named you (among others) in my Swag 4 Life. I’m just frustrated (and surprised) at the level of vinyl takeover this year. I thought there was more that doesn’t play vinyl, like me. But maybe I’m wrong.

Anyway, I have to go right now. Have fun (sincerely). I hope you get your goal. Cheers.

Scraps, you won a CD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:46pm northguineahills:

@Scraps: Well, Gary doesn't have a turntable, first of all. It would be hypocritical if he gave out vinyl on Bodega Pop.

We're giving away sweet vinyl for the rest of the show. To make that happen, we need PLEDGES! $20 or more gets your name written on a slip of paper and placed face-down on my flannel duvet cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:50pm Gary:

True -- and I did pick up all my prizes a bodegas this year, and bodegas tend to sell CDs and cassettes. Although, having said that, I know of four or five places that do have limited vinyl offerings

Oh man this "Taboo"!

gonna go to bat for the non-swag-ers. you can send money in and get nothing in return! i just did. maybe you'll still even to put it in as a charitable deduction next year? probably not. BUT WHO CARES
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/8/18 7:53pm Stepchild:

@Gary & Flash Yup, & Whereas, and please correct me, Explorer's Room is a bit of a vinyl heaven of a program space, the black wax is *most* apropos here

I've been given connubial demerits this evening because I was too weary to go hear some (probably excellent) live music.

No crushing banality there, but still, I do have a cat in my lap.
