A lot of people have said a lot of really nice things to me about this thread. It makes me smile every time. You guys have become experts on getting a huge smile out of me.
This comment came from Wes. He was smart, he knew a thing or 2 about what he was talking about. I love this comment, maybe one of my favorite comments on this site.

“There is more unity and love on this Art forum thread than can be found anywhere else on this entire site”
The only reason there is any truth in that comment is because you guys made this thread a place of love and laughter. I started it as a joke. I even told my roommate at the time I started it that there was no way the guys from the DP can jam with me. I ate my words.
The people in this thread represent the coolest people on this site, and the coolest people on the internet in general. That is not merely my opinion; I look at that as a fact.
I made this comment in another thread recently and I was thinking of all of you guys when I typed it. If I hadn't gotten to know you guys so well in here I would have had a lot less to base this comment on, thank you for making me feel completely confident in this comment.
What I am about to do might slow this thread down a bit. I am sorry if it does. I had a list of top 20 picks from this thread for 2013 I was going to post as a separate thread. Unfortunately it looks like I will be pretty busy these next few weeks and won't be able to finish it with the right amount of care, so I'm just going to post them here.
5.) To Ramona. I love it.
4.) Elizabeth Laprelle. East Virginia. Mountaincat (ahem, not smiling mountaincat :), ok maybe a little) This chick is amazing and my musical life is much better with her in it.
3.) Like a Summer Thursday. What can I say? Who wouldn’t want this song to be written about them? The only rule I ever laid down in here was ‘thou shall not speak blasphemy of Neil Diamond in the jam session,’ but after this song Townes started giving Neil a run for his money. Competition in the marketplace. I have not fallen so hard and so fast for an artist in years the way I did with Townes after this.
2.)When I Paint my Masterpiece. Dylan. The original video left in here was a demo that youtube has since taken down. That’s too bad because that version was perfect, this one will have to do though. It’s mildly embarrassing how quickly this song moved up my playlist considering it wasn’t played until October. One day in a book somewhere I will explain the story behind this song and it will be a fun story to tell.
1.) I Mua. Nahko. I saw him do this live this past summer. It was OK. Got the album. Again, it was OK. This Portland Sessions versions of this song is the most perfect piece of music I have ever heard. Some guy once told me it was his ‘truth.’ I don’t know what to believe about that guy anymore, but I hope that he meant that because it is the most beautiful ‘truth’ I have ever heard. If you guys don’t listen to another song or video in this thread ever again, make it this one and really listen to the lyrics.
Merry Christmas guys :) Some videos I made for the regulars. They need some work still, but I wanted to get them up before Xmas rolls around.
*************MERRY CHRISTMAS NO.7, DUCKY, OTHER GUY******************
***********MERRY CHRISTMAS MICHAEL AND CHRIS***********
*****MERRY CHRISTMAS MOUNTAINCAT, JOHN CARTER, ROCKETMAN******
****DISCLAIMER***** You 3 deserve so much better. If it is the thought that counts, believe me when I say there was a lot of thought. I had a great one up there for you guys with some Pink Floyd going, up for 40 mins before youtube deleted it. Didn't have it saved on my hard drive because in my head it was saved on youtube. Then I made another one, computer died while it was 'publishing' in moviemaker and I lost it. Now Plush won't load past where it cuts off in this one. This is a HUGE work in progress, but I wanted to at least get the rough rough rough draft up for you guys because I will be busy the next few weeks and probably won't be able to fix it for a while. It WILL be fixed though because the 3 of you are my main music men.
****MERRY CHRISTMAS HAS, TAO, DJP, BETTYLIBERTY,MDEFARGE, LAURELAI***
I made this for you guys and I included some personal recommendations for you also.
Don't forget about the other noteworthy and great music threads around here.
Love for all of you. The coolest people on the internet.
