  1. Now I know for sure that Lido Shuffle is not a Billy Joel song.  I used to think that it was until one day, I had searched google…but I didn't know what the lyrics were from listening.  Lita? Litto?

    I searched on "whoa whoa whoa" and "one more for the road" and learned it was a Boz Scaggs song called Lido Shuffle.  aha!

    Another thing I learned last night was that Lowdown was his tune.  I heard Pleasurecraft cover that many times. very cool song.

    Cool show during the last 1/2 hour.  the first chunk was way too cheesy and sound was weird, like the guitars weren't wired up to the mains.  Later, it all came together when they landed into lowdown, lido, etc.

     

     


  2. Check out the seedbox banner at the bottom. It's basically a link through my affiliate account.  It's a solid service to use with IPT and it's great for ratio and off loading bandwidth, but most importantly obfuscating IP address/privacy. Can also setup a plex media server on it, among other neat server apps. Also comes with a little VPN that has so far worked well for playing SNL and Conan clips on youtube.

    IPT is pretty solid for shows though.  What other private trackers are interesting? Is Passthepopcorn still around?  that's a tough one for invites.


  3. This is a head's up regarding the forced acceptance of the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

    They have both been updated recently to comply with the GDPR.

    This site has never shared personal information with any other party in the last 18 years of it's lifecycle.  Yet, that was never blatantly obvious. This site respects anonymity and privacy.  

    There are so many privacy rules now that they must be explicitly communicated and upon which agreed.  For example, those that have donated funds to help keep this site alive would have used a third party service, PayPal.  Therefore, the privacy policy must ensure that members are aware that they are responsible for paying attention to any third party's system, like PayPal's terms and privacy policy as well. 

    If there are any changes to the site that includes collecting any new, optional information, like credit card info or mailing addresses, etc, the policy will be updated and will have to be accepted in order to use the site.

    This sounds like a great idea to help fill the gap within the Instruments for Africa project.  Please look into contributing and help make it a success.


     

    We’re excited to announce that our most recent Instruments For Africa donation is currently on its way to Ghana! Right now the ship is somewhere between Morocco and Accra; 2,700lbs of books, accessories, and amazing musical instruments, all donated by people like you.

    We managed to seperate the equipment into twelve groups, so we’ll be able to supply twelve schools with instruments when we arrive in Ghana next month.

    The problem is, several months ago the Ministry of Education in Ghana gave us a list of thirteen schools in the country that need our help, and no matter how we tried we couldn’t stretch our instrument collection far enough to equip all thirteen schools. We left it up to them to eliminate one name from the list and the school they selected to not receive instruments from IFA on this trip was the Accra School For The Blind.

    We’d like very much to include the Accra School For The Blind and we could use your help.

    Recorders are very popular instruments with kids of all ages everywhere we go in Africa, and our friends at Musicare have agreed to supply us with as many good-quality, brand-name recorders as we want for just $5 each, tax-in. Our flight tickets allow for three more pieces of luggage than we require so we could potentially take hundreds of recorders to Ghana with us without any shipping costs whatsoever.

    This means you now have the unique opportunity to put an instrument directly into the hands of a handicapped child in Ghana for a mere $5!

    Aside from being relatively easy to play, very durable and always staying in tune, the best thing about recorders is that unlike a trumpet or a guitar that is shared by many students, every child gets their own recorder to keep. With your $5 donation I will personally be able to hand a recorder to one of these children, one they can take home and keep as their very own. Imagine the difference that could make! How often do you get a chance to make that kind of difference for such a tiny sum?

    If you donate $10 we can give instruments to two kids. For $100 we could give the gift of music to an entire classroom! But the point is, for the extremely reasonable price of just five dollars you can be directly responsible for giving a ray of musical hope to a child in Ghana.

    Please go to www.instrumentsforafrica.com and click the donate button right now. Simply write the word “recorder” in the instruction box and we’ll make sure a child at the Accra School For The Blind receives your gift.

    Finally, we’ve put together a video to promote our Recorder Drive. Please click here to watch it, and be sure to share the video with your friends!
     
    Thanks very much for your continued support,
