I'm sure I've mentioned the 200+ pp field guide to my archive, as well as the 180+ tab deep-searchable Workbook I've constructed to organize my content.

The big project on the horizon is to hide all 180 worksheets and create a single home spreadsheet with dynamic drop down and search functionality so the user can easily navigate content and call the associated field range to populate below the dropdown.

Then hopefully the DB will be stable enough for anyone with Google Sheets on their phone to access and browse my content with ease.

I've build entire payroll systems with GPS functionality and paperless workflow automations for a law firm entirely using Google's suite of apps and add-on scripts, so hopefully I'll be able to manage this latest endeavor.

Goddamn

That’s flattering ISB

maybe you could help me create a table of contents on the opening page?

Edit: I know it probably has more to do with your tastes but between my darling threads of 2018 I think the free jazz thread showcases better and more important music than the ambient drone thread. 2018 turned out to be an astonishing year for jazz but either way I’m honored.

Hmm... I did some initial searching into generating TOCs in BBCode. There doesn't seem to be a dynamic function to autopopulate new entries in the TOC as new content is posted, but by embedding headers into each entry you wish to deem an "article" you can then build a formatted table and sticky it on page 1 (adjusting for the parameters of this particular host site's native formatting). Then you'd just have to remember to maintain the list as new content is introduced.

If this place suddenly dropped off line it would be nice to have an outline of this thing...

“It’s good to be modern if you can stand it.
It’s like being left out in the rain, and coming
to understand that you were always this way: modern,
wet, abandoned, though with that special intuition
that makes you realize you weren’t meant to be
somebody else, for whom the makers
of modernism will stand inspection
even as they wither and fade in today’s glare.”

Excerpt From

Commotion of the Birds: New Poems by John Ashbery

Freak Fighter is going to focus on reggae dub for a while. This is an odd starting point but this journal has never been known for its coherency. Scanning through some early recordings I decided to start here:


The Upsetter by ... wiki says The Upsetters and Discogs and Spotify say Various

and the album is... well dub had room to grow, put it that way

but the track I YouTubed linked about Crying About You is certainly a gem, it’s not dub but it’s a gem. A soul number sung by Busty Brown and a Discogs writing credit attributed to “Scratch” Lee Perry.

Winston Wright

Correctly far more associated with rock steady ska we’re still going to take a look at this Hammond Organ bad ass.



He absolutely slays on this Upsetters track, Cold Sweat. God bless whoever uploaded this clip.



Here he is killing it again as The Liquidator.



and finally some absolutely delicious dub

Upsetters 14 Dub Blackboard Jungle
Studio album by The Upsetters



This is an important record to know about because it’s a very early pioneer of the real deep dish dub sound. It’s a great listen and fully unassailable.

A little Lamp Lighter information that’s not on wiki and I can’t source it but whatevs. The number 14 in the title is a numerological play on two sevens which is a reference to the Rastafari obsession with the Marcus Garvey prophesy that apocalyptic events were to take place 07/07/77. The original release intentionally had seven tracks per side.

This Is...Augustus Pablo 1974

Augustus Pablo is one of most important figures in the history of Jamaican music and an unassailable pioneer in the history of dub. He was also the greatest melodica player of all time. This Is is a great album to chill out with.

The entire album is great but I love this song:



Arabian Rock

Chinna kills it on guitar!



Earl "Chinna" Smith

I've tried and failed to give a **** about reggae several times but The Upsetters are currently giving me what I wanted from reggae without being as bland and monotonous. Good look, homie.
