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.

Since you love to ask

I may not have trespassed Jam boundaries, but since we are linked in Jen's comments above, I thought you deserved some love too, M.

Plus this has some great art to help match the beauty of this Collins classic, well sung by Dan.

Thank you, Promiskept. :)

I have that (Fogelberg and Weissberg) CD, Twin Sons of Different Mothers. I'm surprised I never wore it out. I'd put that song on repeat not only because I loved hearing it, but so it wouldn't go on to the next track - Power of Gold, a good song on its own, but totally ruining the mood... something like what johncarter just did here in true form, unwilling or maybe even *unable* to forego a good jam session reply! (Good thing I love him. Plus, I can relate. You can be here a while and lose your perspective. Music can be addictive!) :) Well, thank you for restoring that ethereal sound & mood. In fact, I actually prefer their version of the song. I just thought that maybe it would be more appropriate under the circumstances to have it sung from the opposite perspective. Ya know. Yeah, we're now forever linked in DP archives by our "civil and open" disagreements, although jrd might have added, "despite how Promisekept sometimes tries mdefarge's patience." JK lol What I love about you and me is that no matter what we might say to each other, no matter how harsh even, we'd always have to forgive each other or ... show ourselves to be a bad example! lol Okay, in all seriousness, thank you. :)

You're so welcome, mdefarge

for all your kind words, and even your chides. Trying YOUR patience? I thought it was more the other way around :)

Sometimes, it seems you've posted tests and prods to try to get certain replies from me that I wouldn't have expected from what I've written; but then, when I treat those words as the playful banter I believed you really meant to convey, it seems to work out fine, somehow ;)

I agree with you that, Power of Gold, does seem to be in a somewhat odd sequence to, Since You Asked, but Dan and Tim's art was so great on that album, otherwise, I never held against them. I knew you would be familiar with their cover, and trusted it would pull some heart-strings, however often you've heard it.

I've noticed many times that song replies here on The Jam are more about playing off titles, than how well songs segue, musically. That's all I saw in johncarter's reply above; in "true form", as you say. He seems to have done better musically aligning with, Thank You, below, eh?

I don't know why this song came to mind today, as I haven't heard it in a long while, but maybe it had something to do with my feelings towards the Bundy Ranch story I was thinking and praying much on for the last several days. So glad things have, so far, have worked out well enough for Liberty!

Thanks for the kind words, Jen

Agreeing with Dr. Paul, "If you ever can bring about revolutionary changes two things would be required: young people... and music", I find refreshing strength and comfort in great music. Since some of us are older than that, "young people", category, we all know the power and influence of music is indeed revolutionary! I have enjoyed counterpointing with mdefarge, while being ever mindful here, as on other threads, that many other readers/listening might be engaged, also.

I have often wished there were some way of phoning or writing some folks outside of this forum, but lacking a way to keep privacy in gaining that access, I try to do the best I can to keep things posted here on, "The Jam", brief, controversially respectful, and as musically enjoyable as possible.

I waited quite a while after this thread began, to jump in here and regularly participate, but it has been great to get to know what folks who love liberty enjoy listening to. It's also fun to play DJ, and find music I never knew was online, by searching for good stuff to share, like this:
