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.

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme

so weird, this was popped into my head this morning and was stuck there for about an hour.

At least now you know why

I was making potato soup and seasoned it with sage, rosemary, and thyme - which got me singing that song. Obviously, you somehow heard. And truly, has, in my life (which even I find somewhat surreal) that sort of "coincidence" doesn't strike me as all that odd. Sha-la-la...

In the event you noticed some subsequent song posts on sage, it was because I had a recent conversation w/someone who doesn't like sage. I was just thinking how in Winter in these here parts (the NE), hearty soups are the quintessential comfort food - with sage, rosemary, & thyme soup seasoning staples (at least in my kitchen). I wondered if something like that could be "a deal breaker," so to speak and came to the conclusion: heck, yeah! Naturally, when I later visited the jam session I posted a couple paeans to the spice. I knew I could count on The Sons of the Pioneers! They provided me with, not one but, two songs. (ELP's The Sage doesn't count, being a different sort of sage. I just threw that in for fun.)

OK, now you're freakin' me out!


http://youtu.be/EVZh4WcdC3s

honest—no foolin'—I had potato soup last (Saturday) night too.

Spooky!


http://youtu.be/ipkAIMoh30g

No, I was just kidding. Two things.

First, let me quote Willie Brown in Crossroads: "Times is tough! Times is tough!" has, these days it's possible that 3 out of 4 Americans had potato soup for dinner on Saturday. And last night, too. Maybe tonight also. Meat's getting awfully expensive - especially with the federal gov't driving off ranchers.

Second, I did try to tell you yesterday! :)

#Alt18 Countdown: Week of 4/12

There are two new songs to the countdown this week and Blondfire returns: “Young Heart” by Blondfire, “Reverse” by SomeKindaWonderful, and “One Minute More” by Capital Cities kicked off Coldplay (4 weeks), Kaiser Chiefs (6 weeks), and Foster the People (12 weeks). Foster the People lost the most ground this week, going from #8 last week to a no-show this week. Our biggest gainer was The Black Keys, moving 5 spots to #4. After 15 weeks, Grouplove’s “Shark Attack” has its first #1 position.

My recommendations: Waves, Dangerous, Giants, Shark Attack, Paris, Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?, Take It or Leave It, Bridges, and Bad Blood.

Something must be wrong with my time machine. When I clicked on your link "April 12, 2103," it only took me back as far as February 21, 2014. Not that I can say I minded. It was a good day at the jam session. :)
