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.

This is really close to an old Irish love song...

Thanks for bringing me back.

You're the reason our kids are ugly.

Aw. The title & lyrics notwithstanding, they sounded so cute together I checked hoping they really were married. Alas, she was hitched to some scoundrel. (See Put another log on the fire.) Switching from country to metropolitan, in case you didn't see, there was a second song there, a sad song by Lou "Louie the Cabbie" Carter. :)

We're all normal and we want our freedom

That's a line from the song RED TELEPHONE, on the album FOREVER CHANGES.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzkAwCs5bnI

I hope you'll check out the album - one of my all-time favorites. And if I might not be so talented in music to be any sort of qualified judge, it's Robert Plant's opinion, too. :) FYI, I see it's also the title of a tribute album to Love. But sampling the songs, I'll pass. Imho, DA CAPO and FOREVER CHANGES were perfect albums (if you like the style) - as if they were magically blessed for a season; songs from their other albums don't come close. Nor do the covers come close to Love's original interpretations, with the exception of one that's not on the tribute album: Calexico's cover of ALONE AGAIN OR, posted above.

Michael Nesmith - "Rio"

Nez is embarking on leg 2 of his first solo tour since 1992. Thought I'd give Papa Nez a bump this morning ... after all, he did give us the idea for MTV (in it's earlier incarnation as a station that actually played music videos).

It's nice, but you can't dance to it.

I like Michael Nesmith and hope his tour is a success. But if he starts singing about Rio and dancing, Peter Allen *is* what people will think of (at least people my age)! :)

Vowels

Poe, E. - Near A Raven [Constrained Writing]

That was an interesting song. If you're not familiar with Zoolook, you might like that, too. I'm sure it's on this thread somewhere, but I referenced it elsewhere more recently: http://www.dailypaul.com/300663/ever-wonder-what-our-6-month...

I checked out the artist and this album. It seems that the song Vowels is based on a poem that uses "constrained writing." In that case, the poem was a lipogram, where you need to express yourself w/o using a specified vowel (or vowels). I'd never heard of that before, although I'm familiar with a different example of constrained writing. Some guy re-wrote The Raven using words whose # of letters had to equal the value of pi, i.e., 3.141592653589..., beginning with the title: Poe(3), E.(1) Near(4) A(1) Raven(5) He even kept the poem's rhythm. Prepare to be impressed! http://www.cadaeic.net/naraven.htm
