Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from May 12, 2016 Favoriting

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

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.

Hey Daydream! I don't know whether or not, but I can tell you that I think I was in the location pictured at the bottom of this page. Just, you know, a hundred years later

Similar but in color?

pretty different, I have to say. Belize City is pretty insane these days. Rest of the country has more of an "unchanged" look, more or less. I mean, it looks like you might expect in an idyllic way

Hi Melinda! I hope you can't hear it too clearly!
Avatar 8:14pm
Flash Strap:

Also, I'd say I prefer "sick" to "sickly" but considering how often I've been under the weather in 2016 maybe sickly is starting to suit me. I'm like a languishing Victorian 2nd son

What do you know about the language used in that last track?

I know it's Garifuna, which is an Arawakan language with African elements: en.wikipedia.org...

ram goat liver by pluto shervington. that's a tough song title/singer name combo to top.

seriously. it sounds too good to be true, like something Pynchon would come up with
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:05pm

Like the sounds here.

If I had my life to live over I would make all of the decisions I've made so far. No regrets. All good. But I would adjust it in two respects. First, I wouldn't spend any time "working" at a "job." Second, I'd collect recordings of all the reggae, its sources and tributaries, I could get my hands on.
