Time for my nightly jam session

Hey Jam Session Regulars.

You all know Jon right? Well, in all his brilliance he has created a word game. http://www.anadro.me/login and I have spent the past few weeks going through the boards with him letting him win because it is his game and everything, and making sure the game is jam session approved. And guess what? It is jam session approved!

It is a lot of fun. It's like extreme scrabble. There are a lot of boards to choose from. On some boards there is the possibility to score thousands of points on one word. Some boards are more of an endurance test. Either way, you guys should check it out, and tell others to check it out.

Beats words with friends by a million.

Hi guys,

So there seems to be some newer blood in here lately which is great. I love having new people in here. I’m just going to go through the basic gist of this thread and why it has worked so beautifully and wonderfully for over a year.

I tend to like to keep the other threads out of here. There are threads to discuss politics, religion, markets, conspiracy theories, and so on and so forth.

Books are more than welcome in here. Books about bands/artists/musicians are a great addition to the thread. Or just books in general.

All music is welcome. All genres. All artists, bands, musicians, songs….all welcome.

Also welcome: Live performances, whole concerts, artist interviews, music history....

Feel free to come in here and just have conversations. It doesn’t even have to be about music. Let’s just keep the division out there.

Michael and I talked about baseball in here once and we forgot to play songs.

Mdefarge has stories about a lot of things, and doesn’t always play songs either. That is fine.

It’s really just the division I want to keep out of this thread as I would like every single person on the DP to feel welcome in this thread. It is hard to accomplish that at the DP, but I think we have done it here. However, for that to continue, negativity has to stay out there in the other threads.

Being that all genres are welcome, there is a chance you will run into songs you do not like. It's fine to discuss that with the person if you want to as Promisekept and Mdefarge often have conversations where they do not necessarily agree on the musician, yet they keep it civil and open.

And I can't stop anyone from downvoting, but really....again....it has worked so well because of the lack of negativity. Also know in the year and 3 or 4 months this thread has gone on, most people have abstained from downvoting as we have had very very few downvotes in the thread. Probably a DP record for least amount of downvotes especially considering the size of the thread. It is possible to just move on to another video and find something you like.

Embedding:

First, find your amazing and wonderful video that you would like to share.

Underneath the video, and under the number of views there is a menu.

Click on "Share"

Below that, there is another menu. Click on "Embed" and copy what is in that little box below it. It should say something like [iframe width="480" height="360" blah blah blah ].

Copy all of that and paste it into your comment.

Then at the top of the comment box, there is a little button that says "Make embeds load faster."

Click that. Then save your comment.

It is important to remember to click the fancy grey “Make embeds load faster” button brought to us by Robot Jon aka Scrabble nemesis. It will help with loading this thread.

Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Reverb, grooveshark....they all have share options on the sound, just find the embed code or the html thing or whatever it is and copy and paste it over here.

If you find yourself lost and or confused in here locate one of the following and take their cue or ask for help:

Johncarter, Sierra, Mountaincat, Has, Madefarge, Michael, No.7, John Robb, Promisekept, Zooamerica, or Steve024.

They have all been here for a while and know how this thread operates.

Your title reminds of me a joke

When Obama got (s)elected in 2007, I was saying "The White House ain't as white as it used to be. It should be called the Red House." People thought I was hatin' on a bro, wantin' to keep him down. I didn't want to keep him down - I wanted him thrown out on his Commie Kenyan ass.

Sting ~ When We Dance (MLSOD)

Due to some apparent breach of jam session rules, my penalty is that I have to post some [sappy] love song every day for a week. O-o-kay. So, here's Monday's Love Song Of The Day. One down, four to go!

I'm pretty sure guidelines say a full week. Not a business week.

So that makes it 7 videos you will need. So one down, 6 to go dear.
I'm just playing by official jam session rules. I didn't make them, I just play by them.

What was your beach of rules again? I forgot....

Oh boy on that video up there lol....

lol? jrd if you found anything *funny* about those visuals...lol

As to the "beach" of jam session rules: I posted a depressing, maudlin BEACH BOYS song... during the day. I knew it was a mistake. I knew I should have waited until the evening. The kicker is, I hadn't even been drinking! Well, not wine or anything. Just coffee. It was just one of those momentary lapses. I deleted it almost as quickly as it went up, but apparently someone here keeps track of even *fleeting* errors of judgement. Well, since I'm charged with the penalty, I might as well just put it back!

Wait a minute

There is a rule book ...and ...guidelines?
I thought Dr. Farge had the only rulebook.
I believe your right about the full week.

jrd3820's picture

Dr.Farge has a rare copy 1st edition of the DP Jam Session

Rulebook. I had to have the printing department print a new one for me. As OP, I thought I should have one. Then I lost that one also. But I swear I remember something about the full 7 day business week rule.

I'm glad you remember that also Mountaincat or Dr. Farge (I love that) would try to get by on 5 videos instead of 7 and we can't have such a blatant show of disrespect for the rules in here.
