Options Aloha Fridays: Playlist from July 31, 2020 Options

Aloha" is a word found in all Polynesian languages meaning a spirit of loving togetherness. And that is what you will get every Friday morning as a rotating crew of Sheena's Jungle Room DJs (and special guests) spin three hours of relaxing exotica in all its forms, from the primitive to the Space Age. Can we get you something from the bar?

@otis you should check out the cave behind the secret door here in the back of e the grass hut.

Earth would be the ideal vacation spot if it wasn't for all the pesky people.

I'll take a look, oh there's a cave and there's the statue of liberty immersed in sand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am Jan Turkenburg:

Mr Fab, stupidity is everywhere and I read reports from Amsterdam where there are local face mask obligations, that people seem to think that means they don't have to keep distance in the crowded Kalverstraat anymore...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am Jan Turkenburg:

I'm so glad I'm here in my lazy chair safe with all of you :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thanks! Still in the cave here and I found a door but made a fire and going to take a nap as I found some mushrooms growing in a corner, I'm sure they are okay to eat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40am joe:

There is a new record shop opening in Raleigh today. I bet their dollar bin probably has so much Percey Faith,Ray Conniff and Henry Mancini that I'm now in the mood to go buy.
Avatar 11:40am Martinibomb:

@Otis you do realize this is an old hollywood jungle soundstage from the 1940s? Those are not real mushrooms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am Otis:

Running to the store for ex-lax now!
Avatar 11:43am Mr Fab:

Look for “The Versatile Henry Mancini” joe, if you don’t have it already. Exotica paradise...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45am Otis:

joe - been avoiding the dollar bins for a bit here. wading through sub-par conniff to last to faith to mauriat and so on, hard pass. have to second that recommendation for Versatile Mancini... a fav.
Avatar 11:45am Mr Fab:

Very interesting story about that Mancini classic MB played:
I did not know that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45am joe:

@Mr Fab thanks for the heads up. I just looked it up and it may be worth it for the cover alone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am joe:

@otis I try to stay away but I think I have a true illness. I'll spend my time looking even though I know damn well there going to be nothing there.

joe - you and me both. been going through what's here and organizing, adding to discogs and making purge/trade boxes + along with local deliveries of vinyl from 2 shops + a couple of discogs orders but only from canada sellers at the moment, easier. Ah, vinyl. Just pulled out 50+ records of classic exotica to play next week on 5 turntables with some environments and bird call and ocean sfx records. it.... never... ends... until it ends.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Otis:

Wow, Franco. Reminds me of a viral video I saw on the news last night of the guy in a New Mexico walmart saying he had the covid and tried to spit. People need Aloha Friday more than they know.. or a referral to a good Trepannin' doctor.
Avatar 12:53pm Linda Lee:

what a great environment our civic leadership creates for us at the moment. this is all totally unnecessary. we *can* be taken care of, if there's intent to do so. look at how easily they take care of their own.

Will be lowering the bar next week. Literally, to the ground so you can roll over and grab that next drink.

For Sun Ra fans, this cut Eve is on the stellar 3-LP Exotica compilation produced by our own Irwin on Modern Harmonic. Highly recommended comp digital to vinyl.

Fab, I have a record called The Kookie Limbo by Kookie Joe . It's on Nermel records, and the address is right down the street from our house, which just so happened to the Wham-o toy factory where they made the Slip 'n Slide and all other matter of good time summer junk for the kiddies.

The Millionaire from Combustible Edison co-founded luxuriamusic.com, then went to music school to get a degree. Don’t know what he’s done since. Time to reform the band?

He went to music school? I did not know that. hah
Avatar 1:25pm Martinibomb:

Probably so he can teach.
Avatar 1:27pm Franco Twinkie:

Sun Ra played at Myrons Ballroom in downtown L.A. in the early '80's. The show was put on by Poobah records in Pasadena. Before he died, Richard Reese, one of the organizers of the show told me how he had to drive the equipment van down the Pasadena Freeway whacked on acid. When the van was parked out on the street, one of the guys in Sun Ras band was banging some woman inside while he stood guard, peaking. I was inside the venue, and knew nothing of this till years later.
Avatar 1:28pm Martinibomb:

See it's perfectly fine to drive on Acid. I don't know what people are so worried about.

I lived in a chinook camper for 3 years and where to take a crap was my main life challenge
Avatar 1:41pm Linda Lee:

thank you ARB. here too. always nice to have a friend offer parking near some indoor plumbing, or enough space around that no one cares ..
Avatar 1:41pm Linda Lee:

seems like i'm heading back there before long, after closing on this cabin. by choice this time. could use the grouding.
Avatar 1:42pm Linda Lee:

The last time I did acid I was too young to drive
Avatar 1:44pm Linda Lee:

we do pay dearly for a place to take a dump.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm ARB:

I've driven on ayahuasca though, I had to to escape, it's a cult!
Avatar 1:44pm Linda Lee:

I still need to take a psychedelic at some point - mushrooms in my future.
Avatar 1:47pm Martinibomb:

I've read a shit ton about Psychedelics but never taken any yet...

I drive all the time on weed, I drive better, not all tensed up.

I flew a plane for the first time 6 days ago and I was stone cold sober, though it felt as trippy as any drugs I've ever done

We already have one DJ here with a pilot's license, Spacebrother Greg. Getting our fleet in order. Guess I better learn to sail a boat?
Avatar 1:49pm Linda Lee:

MB, i would've sworn you're 'experienced'.
Avatar 1:49pm Martinibomb:

I know how to scuba dive? Does that count?
Avatar 1:49pm Martinibomb:

@Linda I think my mom dropped acid and I was just born that way
Avatar 1:49pm Mr Fab:

heck yeah, to reach our undersea lair!
Avatar 1:50pm Linda Lee:

hahah!!! there was a debate of sorts about how our children would turn out. so now we see. good work, Mom!
Avatar 1:50pm Martinibomb:

I can also drive stick
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm ARB:

Greg's a pilot?! I need to call him
Avatar 1:51pm chresti:

I might take small amounts of magic mushrooms, if I had some, perfect for hot weather.
Avatar 1:52pm Linda Lee:

definitely heard Timmy Thomas' 'why can't we live together' in that last track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm ARB:

Mr Fab, we could use a submarine
Avatar 1:53pm Linda Lee:

though they do grow in cooler climes, if i remember right .. high elevations & i've always found it's best to pair our botanicals with their natural homes.
Avatar 1:53pm Linda Lee:

it just makes natural sense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm ARB:

Martinibomb, teach me! I've only gone free-diving for abalone, I want to SCUBA
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Rich in Washington:

OMG, ARB @1:47! How exciting!
Avatar 1:54pm Linda Lee:

i'm no purist though. whatever works.
Avatar 1:54pm Mr Fab:

A sub, oh! how I used to love reruns of “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.” As cheezy as it was.
Avatar 1:55pm solo mon:

No need to b on the dot MB I’m here :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm ARB:

I see you more at the helm of a balsa wood raft, but a submarine would be so exciting
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm ARB:

Thanks Rich! 360s over Malibu, I never would have dreamed...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm ARB:

That's Captain Aaaaaarb
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm ARB:

Franco I'm still getting caught up on your saga, I'll reply soon
Avatar 1:57pm Mr Fab:

I did watch the Kon Tiki documentary recently, so a balsa wood raft sounds grand.
Mahalo, MB, utterly fantastic way to kick off the series.
