Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from June 13, 2019 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.

Oh what the Hell....A friend of mine was walking down the street in Venice and this album comes flying out the window of a passing car. My friend picks it up, it's Pacific Ocean Blue. The car is stopped at a traffic light and it's Dennis himself. My friend says " Hey! You're Dennis. I love your stuff!" Dennis cracks a sheepish smile and says "Thanks man" a screeches away.

"TDK60" reminds me of the early 1980s when I was a teen with a '73 VW bus with a tape player. I usually used TDK SA C90 to get an album on each side.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm
coelacanth∅:

i started going through all my albums (and eps) a few years ago with the intention to thin my collection (got sidetracked; never finished, but...) i had a rule that, unless the album art was indispensable, it had to have at least 25 minutes (?) of music i like; or 15-20 minutes (?) of music i adore to justify keeping it.

Totally agree re:78s. I dabble. (I buy like five or six per year.) But there's also so much "undiscovered" or at least unreissued music on 78. Some very cool 1920s exoticism, for instance

I read that if you have some audio capture software and you set it to a certain sampling rate, and play the 78 at 33 or 45, then when you adjust the wave file back to 44,200, it will play the recdoing form the 78 at the right speed.
