***This one HAD to be my final jam because I once dreamed that The Animals played this live at my funeral.......well, that is until it was cut short when the riot police turned up HaWHaWHaWHaW!!!
The craic, the belly-laughs & the wit from from the likes of @21schizoid & @kingofmen . The threads, the imagination & the energy of @BladeRunner & @philipnareike . The teasing & funny wind-ups of @melissapulo & @sbrennan0161 and the invention & writing talents that I can only look up to, of @whiffoself @iprefernotto & @paulgdaly . But one thing all these people have in common is that they love music & I have ALWAYS found music-lovers to be more interesting & appealing people.
...And of course , people like me who have had the love of music & sharing it dominate their lives SO much that they just can't stop listening, thinking or TALKING about it!! =D In will miss the routines & rituals of my daily visits to TIMJ which I felt became like operating a well-oiled machine plus the 'perks' of choosing your Artwork & also making home-made jams sometimes. Then there were my 'themes' ( "WHATIF?" "WorldCupJams" & "hippiedaze" among MANY others )......
and my epic anecdotes, farces, poems & fantasies.....I can remember the times, burning the midnight oil, getting involved in hilarious, intriguing threads with several people deep into the wee small hours...and the mornings, too!....choking on my toast with laughter, trying desperately to squeeze in ONE more reply to a funny comment while gulping down coffee & making myself late for work (once again) because of it! =D
**OK Folks, let's see this farewell party out now & watch the TIMJ Sun slowly sink behind the sea for the final time.....My heart has taken a real good hidin' over the past 5 weeks but we all survive & life moves on...and hearts ALWAYS find a way of mending themselves..........( don't they? )
Long live the memory of TIMJ
..and God bless all you jammers ( my friends ) Love xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Way to go out fella.....now let's see the big entrance on godsajoker. I see you're #1 in the charts over there....
My neck of the woods.
That sounds like a hell of a funeral. :) Thanks for all the jams, mister!
A fitting way to sign off, David, it's been a real joy to jam alongside you and my other TIMJ pals. See you on the other side! x
Cheers Dave. It's been good jamming with you and exchanging views on the world. I predict your rugby team is going to get its posterior handed to it in a sling. Along with Australia. They can mutually find a bar with bad beer to weep into.
@paulgdaly ....there's a chart on there?...and I'm number one??? ...but I've virtually ignored GJB for the past 2 weeks!! Hahaha!.....At the moment, I have NO idea what my next jam is gonna be ( or when. I may get back on the horse in 2 or 3 days)......Thanks for the comments Paul. See ya soon. :-)
@TheGreatValerio Glad to hear that! :-)
@dacia You're welcome! Looking forward to meeting up again! :-) x
@MotherFist Likewise Andrew. We've only followed each other on TIMJ for a short while but we've already had plenty of laughs! :-) ...Oh and of course, the music. Mustn',t forget that! See ya in a few days :-) x
Ha! That's perfection Butch! You mention Phil's and mine crazy imagination and energy, but you're certainly hard to pair up with! As we once talked, the true treasure of TiMJ are those absolutely insane conversations, that developed into recurrent themes and made us all bond as an unthinkable group of friends. I was never so active (or popular, WHO, ME?) on a social network as i was here 'cause all others bored me like hell. We definitely made friendship rocked by fantastic music, THANK YOU =)xx
...& where do you think you're going, young man. Come right back here this minute!! That's a hooly to go out with, dude. Been the biggest pleasure, sharing this platform with ya'. Your inventive mind, has been in overdrive, more often than not. In fact at some points, I've checked ma' coffee supplies, to see if you've been on a raid! Let's just say this fella...if VW could have whapped Essence of Carter in their diesel engines, they'd never need to have lied thru' their teeth...
...about their engine efficiency! Jam On ma' friend...Jam On...
Fab jam,will miss all your music...
I shooooout ! ....thanks for all your songs and touching speeches
you said it, dude. happy trails!
toga! toga! toga!
man, with you signing off it's starting to feel real...
haha! Just knew you'd go out partying @debutch! Puts me in mind of late nights out when the brian wants to keep bopping but the legs won't do it and one ends up wandering vaguely about the dance floor...Bop til' you drop! See you later :-)
Brian! lol! I meant brain!
and thanks for all the fantabulous stories :-)
You're the sugar in the timj tea young Dave and seems like everyone's talking about you :D Fab final jam and many thanks for the music and extra zing you brought into this space. Keep rockin as always! cheers
Ah , yes TIMJ often the cause of my lateness in the mornings and at lunchtimes. You're checking out early Mr C, there's still another day left!
Woah yeah!! Way to go out fella . Thanks for all your great jams and hilarious banter :) Your musical choices and general wit and repartee have been a joy :) Hope our paths cross again brother ! x
@BladeRunner It was a pleasure Jess! To be honest, whenever I'm a social network that doesn't focus on music, it begins to feel less like pleasure & more like work, the longer music isn't mentioned! Ohhh! ...and some of those threads!! We would say, for example, " How did we end up discussing traffic cones?" kkkkk!....and you, 'not popular'? Nah!...can't imagine that at all!
@BladeRunner I'm spending as much time as I can tomorrow visiting peoples' pages ( while at work!) Then I'm having a little break ( only 2 or 3 days) before coming back on all THREE sites! ( well, just to begin with, anyway!) ....Can' t WAIT to see your final jam!!! =D xxx
Reminds me of when you jammed "House of the Rising Sun" by The Animals last summer! Inspired me to jam "Lucinda" by Tom Waits. (Hard to believe that was more than a year ago.) What you've written actually reminds me of a different song, so I think I'll squeeze that in as a last-minute jam. Thanks for setting us off on a clap-happy note. See you in a different place, different time!
Will miss your warm presence and fantastic yarns on here!
@21schizoid Great to see ya in such fine spirits these days , Pepe! Your gnashing of teeth that for a few weeks followed the bombshell news last month began to worry me! I started imagining you doing something extreme , like driving all of your prog albums & coffee supplies over a cliff or something while heard screaming something about being bombarded by teenybopper followers on noose-icky. ....Nice to sense that air of calm around you again! :-D
@teen Thank you teen! See you soon! :-) xx
@jimbergson You're welcome, mate! :-)
@vomitsunami Yee-Haw! :-)
@AlteGeist It's finally sunk in with me now. Truly a melancholy day....
@shitsterbauer Thank you! :-)
@ElizaJane You know you've had a good night when your knees are buckling! :-) xx
@ElizaJane ....and for the tales, glad you enjoyed them, Liz!
@soorajsoman I will do my utmost best Sooraj! Thank you my friend!
@lindatee I'm not surprised, judging by some of the times (2am?) I' 've seen you active on here!! Hahaha!.....I'm only checking out early with my final jam. I'm still going to be around tomorrow (Friday) visiting people's pages. You can't get rid of me THAT easily!! :-D xx
Oh, man, I've been listening here at work and it played all the way through before I even saw your comments. What a great jam to go out with and it completely lifted my mood, so thank you for that. I had no idea it was The Animals performing either! Thank you for all the great music, incredible stories (I still hope you write a book sometime) and the themes. It just doesn't get better than enjoying your stories, hypothetical or historical, accompanied by your jams and I'm thankful that can go on
@iprefernotto Ohh! You remembered that? Wow! That's some recollection!! I can't even remember what I done yesterday! Thank you for your kind words & I'll eagerly look out for your final jam with interest!
@shiningsun2k Y'know Jeremy , I haven't said this before but I'm amazed at how much thought & care you put into comments when you remark on peoples' jams on their pages. You never seem to br in a rush to express what you think and I think that that is a very admirable quality you have. ...and I know because I' 've seen your comments on many other peoples'pages & you give them all the same time & respect. You're a true gent & a fabulous online friend. See ya around soon mate! :-)
Hahaha. Actually DC, that sounds like it would have been a plan...thank goodness you didn't suggest it weeks ago! I shall leave the bespotted yoofs of Noose-necki to others of like mind and skin condition. I believe a higher religion is called for... ;-D
Ah, I'm sure I haven't retained half of what I intended. 'Least we have TIMJ's archival as a sort of memoir!
Very fitting and fun.
Top one mate. I expect to see a cracking post by the end of the weekend over at GJ :)
That's quite a tune to go out with...and thanks for the mention...I guess I try to be as entertaining as possible ...and my imagination has always been wild to say the least....well, see you over on the other side...it's been a pleasure...
@debutch ...and I didn't even have a chance to jam your special 'End of Jam Leaving Present Jam' I thought up a while back...I'll have to do it on God's Jukebox :)
Great stuff.....well done Dave, that's the way to go out. But how the hell did the "toga party" get in there!!!!!!!!? :-D
@21schizoid Well, I'm glad that you've ditched those knee-level crotch jeans that show the back of your Primark 'Y'-fronts and found "God" at last.... ;-D
@itskerryc Nah! They are both going to come good & meet in the final. You KNOW it's gonna happen! :-) See ya around Kerry!
@garyprice265 Thank you Gary. That's very kind of you. :-)
@iprefernotto That's right! I am actually very pleased about that. :-)
Thanks for all the stories and laughs Dave. You have been outstanding, quite rightly legendary! Gonna take a small break away from online life with a busy month coming up, but I've set up a future return somewhere. I'll catch you there! :-)
@stickynotes Thank you! :-)
@BertrandRustles ooh! the pressure! Actually, I was gonna have a little breather & do something on all THREE sites by Monday!! ...It's just the beginning of my process to find the 'right site' for me. Hopefully get it sorted in a few weeks....In the meantime, I'm loitering around here 'til Friday night! :-) Take care, mate.
@philipnareike Oh! I'm really curious now!......yeh, it HAS been a real pleasure Phil. See ya soon. :-) x
@mikelowe Oh! You mean you haven't seen "Animal House" with the famous "Toga Party chant" by John Belushi? See, @jackietheripper (above ) is on to it straight away! ....and the "Shout" song reminded me of this song too.... Here's a little clip from the film ( around 1979, I think) but EXCUSE the Spanish, though! HaHa! :-D https://youtu.be/E5zsLfgwBTg?t=26
@mikelowe oops, I think the clip comes straight in at around 30 seconds in, straight into the middle of the song. You just have to drag it back to the "Toga" chant at the beginning!
@sbrennan0161 Well, I'm having a 4 day break too! Looking forward to seeing you again Simon . I'll have to look after Mel for you in the meantime! ....and thank you for the compliments. You're a star!
@debutch I might be having a break from online life, but you can guarantee she'll still be there chirping away at me in real life. No rest for the wicked! :-) And thank you for your kind words too. Until the next time!
I'm so happy this isn't the end, cause I'll hunt you down and I will force you to play music, tell your wonderful stories. Although I might not always have been able to listen, comment and participate as much as I would have wanted. I'm so happy you made it here, keeping the jam-spirit alive. You rock man. thank you for everything. xx :D
@Avante Aw, thank you Birgitta. My head is spinning from compliments coming my way all day but that is one of the nicest comments I've read today. Thank you so much. ....and as for your 'quirky' jams.....I LOVE them!!! :-D xx
Causin quite a raucous over here with your tune...I'm sure the cops will be round soon....farewell.... ;-)
Ah...been meaning to talk to you about that. Haven't ACTUALLY ditched 'em yet, but as soon as I can have the Primarks surgically removed, it's dungarees all the way...
Farewell timj and hello gjb, too emotional to say too much more right now but hope to see you 'SHOUTING' over at the house of god, hallelujah....
Thanks for all the great jams and see you :)
Yes thanks see you on GJ :0)
@kemiladashdot Oh OK you win. I'll stay here...
@SheRa So it was you who called the cops! ;-D See you soon M You've got an exciting year coming up! :-) xxx
@Sid_Bonkers yeh, I'll be there Sid. See you around!
@ada23 @psyclopstrees @cbinseoul Thank you all. I'll be good to catch up again soon! :-)
@debutch I liked that piece of writing too in the 'comment on jam' section. Beautifully done :-) Its like The Oscars on this page :-)) x
@alisonsghost Kind of you Jane!......."and I'd like to thank the producers , my mother , God , the Queen"........ ;-) xx
Thanks for all music!
Well i did everything you said apart from the toga party . (-: cheers once again, you have been a star
Hope I'm not too late to the party. *brings bubbly*
Playing your jam LOUD.
@3rdillusion You're welcome!
@colinflynn28 Thank you Colin. Hasn't this site been incredible?
@KerryEJordan As long as you've turned up, that's good enough for me Kerry!
Looking forward to seeing you in our 'new school'! :-) xx
@debutch it certainly has! It was @melissapulo that told me about it. Can't believe it's been nearly two years since I've been on it l, heard some great music and has a good laugh too .:-)
Hey dave, just managed to pop in before battery dies on me. You must be a complete one off Dave (they threw away the mould etc), a priviledge to know albeit only virtually. wish I had more time, nevertheless the one thing I spotted was that you are a guy with a big heart, and I appreciate you sharing that we me and our fellow jammers.
@colinflynn28 Looking forward to seeing you 'over there' Colin! :-)
@kemiladashdot Kev, I've never heard you speak this way before,,,(without your fab dry sense of humour) I don't know what to say.... ( gulp...bottom lip quivering..)
Marvelous...Thanks so much for all the great stories, fabulous music & often hilarious banter. You have brightened more days than I can count. I have sincerely enjoyed our time here & only hope that it can continue on one of the other sites we've migrated to. (to be continued on the next site) :-)
Thanks for all the pleasures of your presents.
Thanks for everything (so far) @debutch It has been a blast. See you on the B side.
@marissapicone Thank you for your sweet message Marissa. See you "over there"!! :-) xx
@whiffoself You're welcome! :-)
@Cleops You try & stop me, Susan! :-) xx
you're probably the nicest person i've ever known :)
@jackietheripper I NEVER thought I'd say this but jackietheripper....( of all people!) just made me shed tears!!! =D Gawd bless ya my FRIEND!!! XX
Well, I'm off TIMJ from THIS moment. Nothing can follow that!.... If any more of you lovely people leave comments on here, then I'll have to reply wherever I can find you!
LOVE YOU ALL!!!! xxx
huahuahua i knew that would get ya :) i mean it though, seriously thanks for everything dave
you're the best :)
Not archived yet, so still time for another goodbye, goodbye :)
@debutch Aww, what can I say?! It's been emotional! :-) I'm sure you are the one that people will remember the most and fondly. God, people missed you when you disappeared for a few days (to get out of meeting up with us ;-))!! I know I have said it before, but although I've never met you, I feel I know you well, and I like the man that I think I know :-) So, keep entertaining the troops on the other sites - it is your JOB now!! And I'll come to find you soon... :-) xxx
Hey, thanks for so many great jams, see you along! :-)
Take it easy - Thanks for such amazing music.
@debutch “@MotherFist If it was done before, you can bet your bottom dollar that @philipnareike was behind it!! ;-)” David...I just got this message on Mark's page which has now dissappeared so I don't know what it was reating to...please let me know, I'm curious....:)
Lovely YOU. That is all.x
