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.

Nice segue

How do you like my new tagline, M? Frederick Douglass had so many wise insights from his unique slave-to-celebrity status in his day; as we watch today's celebrities become slaves, and promote slavery to their trendy peers.

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

It's a good tagline,

particularly relevant to the case at hand. As a Christian, though, it can get a bit tricky (to me, anyway). It's an issue I not infrequently grappled with, gratefully in the past. Anyway, I liked your old tag, too. I like the attitude it reflected. I wish I remembered it exactly, but too often people basically just want to hear what they already know and/or believe, that they feel comfortable with. Incidentally, I don't know if you saw a comment of mine related to this, but I'm now reminded of Rupert Sheldrake's (banned) TED talk on challenging existing paradigms. I love this guy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKHUaNAxsTg

Maybe we can take this to another thread?

I created a thread that didn't catch on when it was posted, but maybe we could reopen it if you, and others here, think it worthy?

While we're here on The Jam, here's another song, bitter-sweetly played and sung:

See if you don't agree with me.

I can only imagine the songs

I can only imagine the songs that we will never hear .

Imo, Coda kinda

sucked. They started experimenting with their sound and I just couldn't get on that bandwagon.

Shit, though: imagine the money they'd be making even today. Selling out venues with seats going at $75 for nose-bleeds. $1,500 for all access.

Easily sell out every single night.

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

Albert Collins! I only know him by a movie...

Lol and this is so dumb, but I had to comment because I haven't seen the guy since:

Albert Collins plays in a Blues Band in a movie called "Adventures in Babysitting."

Lol I couldn't even tell you who starred in that movie, but I know some have seen it besides me. Maybe....

Stay Frosty/Ice Cream Man Interview [David Lee Roth]

hi, has. I liked that group, although they're a bit intense. Well, nothing we can't lighten up some here. I laughed out loud listening to this interview. For real, my stomach hurt from laughing. Now, it's possible you need to be a New Yorker to relate. Or maybe just have a good sense of humour. ;) Or maybe the two are the same! lol Well, in any event, hope others enjoy it as much as I did. And remember, Stay cool. Nah, no one has to tell you that, h. :)

U2 Zoo TV Zoo Station Live 1993 Dublin

I was born 35 years ago today in the middle of a snow storm.

I'm ready for the laughing gas. I'm ready for what's next.

I'm ready to duck, I'm ready to hide, I'm ready to say I'm glad to be alive.

I'm ready, ready for the push.

In the cool of the night, in the warmth of the breeze

I'll be crawling around on my hands and knees.

This is my favorite song of all time.

It's the most electric thing since Elvis.

Happy Birthday

I don't have time to find you a song right now.
So, I'll have to owe you one.
I'm really falling behind on the jam session but I'll have a lot of good songs to listen to this weekend.
