Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from July 5, 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.

A lot of humankind is in need of a severe brow beating right now so a lack of subtlety is totally in order. Middle section resembles John Cooper Clark fronting a calypso steel band which floats my boat.
