Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from July 5, 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 everyone. I just spoke with Evan Crankshaw, and learned that he has lost power in a thunderstorm. Looks like the show tonight will most likely not happen.

Hello friends! I am in fog-bound Stonington, Maine, in a house with Wifi.

GIVE YOUR REQUESTS AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO MANIPULATE THE STREAM TO PLAY THEM!!!
  6:15pm
Dean:

Stream manipulation? Is that legal?

Doug Schulkind:

@Dean
I will stay three spins ahead of the constable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm
Doug Schulkind:

C'mon everyone, add your requests.
  6:18pm
Dean:

Apropos of enchanted tangos, some live Piazzolla, perhaps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm
Doug Schulkind:

Up next is Louis Armstrong (yesterday was his birthday). Some Piazzolla is next!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm
Doug Schulkind:

The Piazzolla isn't live, but it is a lovely duet with Jorge Luis Borges.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm
Doug Schulkind:

What would you like to hear after the Astor Piazzolla?!?
  6:28pm
Dean:

Pizzolla/Borges sounds terrific.

John Carter/Bobby Bradford or, better yet, John Carter w/ Gianluigi Trovesi

Doug Schulkind:

Carter/Bradford coming up next...

Doug Schulkind:

Looks like I'm your own personal deejay, Dean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm
Doug Schulkind:

In about 10 minutes, we will be tossing 12 lobsters into the boil. Will keep this going until they turn bright red.
  6:33pm
Dean:

My birthday was Friday. I got my wish!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm
Doug Schulkind:

I await your next REQUEST!
  6:34pm
Dean:

Sun Ra and Walt Dickerson
  6:36pm
Dean:

...and then something over-the-top funky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm
Doug Schulkind:

Don't have Sun Ra/ Walt Dickerson. I queued up Sun Ra's "Hiroshima."
  6:38pm
Dean:

Oh, wow. I've never heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm
Doug Schulkind:

Sun Ra is on deck; Maceo Parker is in the hole!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm
Doug Schulkind:

Ready to cue up more requests!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm
Doug Schulkind:

Sun Ra on pipe organ!
  6:46pm
Dean:

This is amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm
Doug Schulkind:

We aim to please, Dean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm
Doug Schulkind:

My lobsters are ready to unsubmerge. I will take my leave. Sun Ra will take you until two minutes before the top of the hour, then Maceo Parker will funk you over the top.

Love and lobsters to all!
  6:52pm
Dean:

Holdsworth-era Soft Machine?
  6:53pm
Dean:

Thank you. Enjoy your embarrassed lobsters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm
Doug Schulkind:

8 lobsters are done, 4 more to go. We have a party of seven (eight, if you include the dog), ready to dine al fresco about 20 feet from the Atlantic Ocean.
  6:58pm
Dean:

I'm a couple miles from the Pacific. Probably can't make it to Maine in time...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm
Doug Schulkind:

I would Fedex you one, but the dog says no.

They were playing Sun Ra on the main stream at the same time as on this stream, but that seems to happen often.

Power came back at midnight, internet came back at 2 AM. Some storm, and some fuckin' timing: the lights went out two minutes to showtime.

Missed you all terribly. See you next week.

And Doug, god damn do I admire you, sir. Thank you for filling in my failure to fill for you.
