Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from March 1, 2018 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.

Morning to you Evan & Doc. How long is a piece of string?
Avatar 7:04pm

Tonight in the Explorers Room, we'll play another game of word association and chance-based song sequencing by taking our previous experiment (see here: wfmu.org... ) and vaguely recreating it by choosing songs with similar or same titles and putting them in the same order.

According to Variety magazine, Jan. 31, 1968, he'd recorded it three years prior and it flopped. "But now that the Negro actor is a hot Hollywood property," WB saw an opportunity to make a buck on it. It was retitled, "Sidney Poitier Journeys inside the Mind."

More about "Poitier Meets Plato"... The record was nominated for a Grammy in '65, the original year of release. Photographer Ed Thrasher received the nomination for "Best Album Cover (Other Than Classical)."

In fact, it appears the record was issued in '64.
