Time for my nightly jam session

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.

Despite differences among us at the DP and differences among us right here, too, I'm not used to seeing comments like that on this thread, what is generally an oasis from negativity, whether re politics or personalities. I'm friends with Granger, whom I consider a rather remarkable & accomplished woman. It's not that we've always seen eye to eye on things; and she's never been shy about expressing her disagreement with me, our friendship notwithstanding. But while I'm not sure where she's coming from these days myself, I have never doubted that her intentions were well-meaning. Personally, I wonder had she not been treated in the vile manner as she was by some that got her so defensive to begin with, if things might have turned out differently. Perhaps (I don't know, but perhaps) not finding a different reception among those she considered her own made her vulnerable in a sense to the influence of others whose cause she took up and made her own. (Btw, I'm not talking about you in terms of those comments or the automatic downvotes every time she opened her mouth; I believe you made a genuine attempt to understand her preoccupation and explain your reasons where you found her remarks inappropriate.) Still, there are other threads devoted to her - including specifically on the subject of her leaving. I'm just sorry to see that spill over to here.

Although my previous comment was deleted,

I understand where you're coming from.

The reason why I had/have so much disdain for Granger is because she was claiming (at least at first) that the IDF did not use White Phosphorus in Gaza.

Not only did I serve with a friend that observed that very act with his own two eyes (via live surveillance), I gave Granger the embed video of that event as it took place.

Only about 3 months later did Granger pull a "romney" and change her tune. However, she interpretted the "use" of bombing as "a smoke screen," which was the same lie that the IDF told the media.

I don't respect Granger at all because she will not admit to being wrong, and if she "attempts" to come clean, she dodges just like she always did with me.

Like you have said, I genuinely wanted to understand where Granger was coming from. But imo, she was so blinded by being a "great Israeli," that she couldn't look outside of the box to observe what she was actually advocating for, and I'm talking about Israel (Likud Party/Netenyahu) being hypocrits.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Good song

lol

Great song. :)

Good first post, P4P

I've often admired the wordsmithing expertise sung well here. Here's the timely imbed you so hoped would work:

Trusting many will love the instrumentation, while possibly differing on some lyrical choices; I offer two of my favorites from this album in hopes that it might also refresh many other weary warriors here.
