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.

I Like this Mexico. I first heard a version by Bob Moore, I think it was the B side of the theme from My Three Sons (not the original, which was disappointing at the time).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 7:35pm Doug Schulkind:

Yep. That's one of the two I have by JV. The other is "Still Afraid of Losing You."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 7:36pm melinda:

I did not intend to capitalize "like" in my previous comment.
Avatar Thu. 9/20/18 7:37pm Flash Strap:

My most familiar rendition of "Mexico" is, as you might imagine, Herb Alpert

The stream is butting in pretty regularly. You may want to consider taking a break to reboot your router. It's not guarantee, but it often helps.

This music is helping my spirits. There is a chance that a moldy house has been making me sick for years so I went researching, down the old internet rabbit hole today and it caused mega-stress.

Yeah, what Flash said, melinda, I hope if there's some help in your figuring-out research, you get some part of it figured. A friend has suspicions about mold in a house she lived in a few years out on Peaks contributing to real trial and trouble. You don't need, "OH, I've got a horror story...!" But I understand the suspicion and difficulties and wish you the best.

I love your show-gaps and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 8:56pm melinda:

Thanks guys. Depending on what I read, it could be either a huge relief or a huge nightmare, since there is a lot of disagreement about how to test for and remediate mold, therefore not a clear path forward. I have blood tests that are not conclusive, as well. I've lived with damp musty basements for many years with no health problems, but I guess different stressors can make you turn sensitive to molds.

Hi Franco! nothing in this life touches Man Ah Warrior, but Zukie in Dub is a very good dub record. So is Escape from Hell, actually

OK, time to head out (hard to leave reggae covers, a true love of mine).
Bye all!

@melinda haha, i liked that one too

this Winston Riley LP is one of my go-to dub records, so good, doesn't get enough praise

@melinda it sounds like an expert is in order.
We had serious mildew in the bathroom. After diffusing tea tree oil several times, the smell went away, at least

Got to hear some of "Reggae on the Boardwalk" at Coney Island last week - DJs spinning 45s via a big sound system.

it;s a strong name

that sounds nice TDK

They do it 1x/mo. thru summer; last week was it for the year I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 9:18pm melinda:

@chresti I went ahead and bought a mold and stain product online for my bathroom grout mildew, since that is already being disturbed regularly.

Acknowledging the obvioius, I worry about what's happening to our immune systems due to the crap, chemicals, plastics and contaminants cascading into the environment. W might have not only reactions to them but also heightened sensitivities to otherwise fairly normal factors

say yes to dub!

my ex named his cat winston. I guess he realized what a great name it was!

belated warm hello to you B/P, as you describe enormous fears that tug at the corners of my mind at all times
Avatar Thu. 9/20/18 9:22pm still b/p:

And I'm sure pollutants affect spelling.
Avatar Thu. 9/20/18 9:22pm Flash Strap:

also fond of the name Erroll
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 9:23pm melinda:

@b/p right? It's easy to drive yourself nuts thinking about it. It comes up a lot in the health forums I've frequented over the last several years, and I've had to make a real effort not to worry too much while at the same time knowing that there's something to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/20/18 9:24pm chresti:

dub is the antidote
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 9:24pm melinda:

Erroll would be a great cat name. My first picks would be Terence or Curtis.

Earl is nice, too

My kitty Olive was Earl for a couple of days, before a friend pointed out that she was a girl. The lady I adopted her from had told me otherwise.

great topic of the day here

I.Roy lays it out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 9:39pm melinda:

Before Earl/Olive we had picked out a kitten and named him Oliver, but he died before we could adopt him, so Olive was sot of the next name in line.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/20/18 9:40pm chresti:

- been reading from where my comment board stood...melinda there are a lot of "experts" out there. just like with doctors, it's easy for one to say you ordinary human being you can't possibly deal with this yourself.
...maybe, maybe not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 9:49pm TDK60:

I've gotten that way too Melinda but have been forcing myself out more recently, even though I'm gittin' older. Saw Sun Ra Arkestra a few weeks back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/20/18 9:52pm chresti:

yeah I very rarely go out unless it's within 5 or 10 miles and it's possible to park
AND, (tall order) it's not hot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 9:53pm melinda:

@coel there's no way to really know for certain, but doctors who deal with mold-related illness and don't have a financial interest in professional remediation still recommend going that route. At least you have to have professionals do some testing and investigating first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/20/18 9:54pm chresti:

also, if it's free.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 9:55pm melinda:

I'm usually too tired to go out and almost always too un-alert to drive safely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 9:56pm coelacanth∅:

and as others here say there are other factors. if other things weren't affecting your sensitivity to it everyone would react to it in the same ways. allergies and sensitivities are cumulative. you may have lived with mold before without a problem because there wasn't anything else messing with your immune system at the time. maybe now you're sensitive to the glue that holds your kitchen counter together, or the tree in your back yard, or a pesticide someones spaying 1/2 a mile away... or it could be a different strain or even species of mold.

The stream froze on me for nearly an hour, but heard the last set, mellowness. :)

...i was just using a doctor as an example. i could've used a car mechanic.
one thing doctors are excellent for, as long as it's not too exotic, is diagnosis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 9:58pm melinda:

@coel that's not really helping

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/20/18 10:02pm coelacanth∅:

sorry melinda. nobody's really helping then. my point is that you can deal with it yourself to a great degree; then if that doesn't help go further.
