r.i.p. Joe Sample - his piano playing accompanied me through studying and writing papers in university.
Congrats to all the students here. I majored in history & political science - I have my Masters degree now; however the learning never stops.
I agree - joe sample murdered - in a good way - the piano. Love his stuff since I was a kid.
You know it's sad - his passing but also we (or his fans) were blessed he gave of us the gift of the music in his mind. I mean what a thing to share with the world. To have the courage to put stuff out there - beautiful stuff - that still will be criticized or subject to haters.
But it's the chance all artists/writers take.
Had a great time at a wedding last night. A guy at our table asked who wanted to smoke with him, because he never used to smoke. Then he offered us shots, because he never used to drink.
He was the star on the dance floor, explaining he'd had 2 hip replacements (55 years old). He took videos of the party of us dancing and announced we were all on FB.
He literally carried a cup of tequila in his hand, the entire night, pushing it onto us (the girls mainly) on the dancefloor.
He was a little over the top, quite literally he was obnoxious. (I made sure he wasn't driving) But we all had the Best time (at least more than the bride & groom!)
And I'd found out through someone else, he'd lost one of his children, I assume in the past few years.
So You don't know what someone is going through. The greatest loss someone can have is to lose a child.
Don't judge people, we can never fully understand. Just enjoy people.
A friend (who's a great drummer) just start studying in london, in the greatest drum's school (drumtech)... In two weeks he will receive a masterclass of rythm section of the band we all celebrate on this website, if you know what i mean..
I feel so happy that he follow his dreams but i'm dying of jealousy for the two hours of masterclass he will receive
Relaxed but feeling dread and procrastinating. At the Ritz in San Francisco but need to check out and catch a flight at SFO. But I love hotel life - especially this one - and could stay here for at least a week. But I can't miss my flight.
(sorry, this is irrelevant and boring but I use the forum to get out my thoughts that I do not say out loud Hope everyone else is well.
saw this silly movie today "John Wick" ft. Keanu Reeves.
very violent -based on an assassin whose '69 mustang and dog are taken and he must get even.
But I did get a kick out of the club scene, with the gun shooting. And the nice suit
the music and imagery(?) was well-done, and some quotes will be famous.
Oh boy @ Giba - considered seeing JW but passed thankfully I know now.
Saw "Interstellar "- which was interesting because pretty much all the books I have read recently have said the what's in the film - verbatim. I mean I could pull out the book I finished this past Thursday - and the film quotes passages from the book. Strange.
(Looking forward to seeing Stevie this month Yeah! Seeing Judas Priest Monday, which shall be interesting given that I do not know one of their songs - geez, my life.)
Interstellar looks good -but I'll be laughing thinking of Matthew Mcconaughey driving that Lincoln the whole time
I hate that I put in words gossip on Stevie Wonder! It literally came onto my social media without searching -Maybe Billboard on FB talked about his baby stuff. I can't find my post to delete it!
But I did read this Songs in the Key of Life Tour has a good purpose, or message... to people.
something...Stevie is out to teach us, tonight.
omg here's the Mcconoughey Spoof!

The Ferguson riots are very unfortunate, and will probably set back a part of society.
I think The riots of Ferguson will have negative consequences for their city, and other aspects.
I was happy Detroit remained peaceful. Detroit has a history of riots from 1967, which after all these years had resulted in a recent bankruptcy of the city. When the people left, the money (residences, businesses, taxes) leave. When the money leaves, the city deteriorates. But Detroit has been working hard to rebound, after nearly 50 years.
In the world of people, we are meant to be meek, and not intrude on someone's space.
Be neutral. Don't judge. Have empathy.
This is respect for others.
Don't intrude on someone's style, mannerisms, thoughts, expressions, knowledge, culture...
only once they've let you in, can you cross that line.
but still give respect.
Be meek, but use your voice when necessary.
Everybody has the same capacity to feel the same things.
When you give respect, you deserve respect. This creates Peace.
The problems in the world is when people feel the rules only apply to people less than them.
I just saw what Kanye pulled at the Grammy's!
he said "Beck needs to respect artistry and he should've given his award to Beyonce'.
what an asshole!! I mean, Kanye was probably in diapers when Beck hit big. who tf does he think he is?
these people with their egos. I can barely take them and their judgments.
it's too bad Beyonce' just can't win her awards on her own.
Chaka Khan interview has her discussing drugs, (and Whitney's daughter)
“I call myself an ex-addict. For years I was having fun and it all made fun more fun for me. But life changes...
"As entertainers, we are highly sensitive people and there’s no way things can’t get to you. But you have to find ways to protect yourself from that crap."
gotta love Chaka Khan!
I've been here for quite a while, it's kinda funny! I didn't mean to be.
The Jamirotalk page is sorta the nerdy side (no offense meant) of Jami fans. Knowing specific performances or owning rare cd's/albums. But a true fanbase hang out there!
The Funkin page is a little slow because not much going on for news.
This forum is the original page? I dunno.
So I just post songs here. Like Sister Sledge. Heard it on Sirius 54 today, linked to Nile Rodgers.
my Twitter page doesn't want music, so I have to dump it somewhere.
what, do I have to post only Jamiroquai?
I just heard of a Silent Disco today -totally cool! they described the blue headphones like this, jump ahead to 7:30. You can only hear the music in the headphones and you dance!
@Giba - hey yes those silent disco/raves have been going on in Europe for the past few years. Cool, unique concept. I think I first heard of them going on in France. I think it is great for disco/raves that might get shut down because of noise disturbance reasons in close quarters. Yet, I still prefer loud ass music and hearing it together with others and shaking my ass with others. It is communal. For me, headphones are for the gym or other boring exercises (or drowning out others when I am moody) -lol
Current Emotional State: blissful
@Giba post on girl, post on . . . keep Jam's site alive. What's the deal with reddit?
I just read that Cecil's brother, Jericho was shot and killed today.
Both lions dead.
This sickens me so much I can't explain.
It's not just 2 cats dead. Its the cubs he was protecting.
People think a sport is more important, or another life is not important.
Who's playing God?
I don't give a sh*t about Reddit
