Pretty sure I posted this last year, but who cares. First 12 seconds are some of the most important in the history of jazz.

Kim, click the "video" button all the way to right and put the URL in there. It will come up like this - [video][/video].

EDIT - Actually "quote" this message and you'll see...

Aha!
Thanks, SDC - I think I tried everything except the "video" button ... I guess I wasn't giving the BB software enough credit for its ability to work out what to do with the link.

My best friend told me today that these line always reminds him of me:

"It's just that everyone's interest is stronger than mine;
And when they clean the street I'll be the only shit that's left behind."

A lovely video that combines two interesting characters that I rather like very much.

I've been listening to myself work on my cover versions of The Alan Parson's Project's "Eye In Sky," The Smashing Pumpkins, "Disarm" and U2's "One" (I've been a singer/songwriter/performer/studio artist for a while and do have a CD out under a pseudonym which came out in '06. I only distribute them for free. If you'd like a copy, PM and we'll see what we can do. The label I was on went out of business but there might be some online samples and I think there's still a video of the first track on Youtube but I'm not here to peddle my wares. Like I said, if you want more info. I'd be glad to freely share. Just PM me. But please, don't publicize it here. I do not create music for money. It's nice when that's the result, but I'm an artist before I'm an economist. :spy: )

Rigth now I'm trying to figure out the best way to just record video of myslelf from my laptop to upload to Youtube but I'm the furthest thing from a geek you'll find. So, if you've any advice, I'd be much obliged.

i only like music with balls. this could include everything from hendrix, crust punk, doom and black metal to minimalism, drone, and a lot of symphonic music; also some hip hop and rap, and electronic music (iff it has balls i.e. real emotional power).

Absolute classic. Thanks Dave.
