recession music , jazz food and chewy

Monday's tips jazz gig is canceled due to venue being closed by health department .
Usually they get the jazz in when there are no patrons due to poor food/coffee/service .
The jazz sometimes comes at the beginning of the establishment's life but more often signals the end .

On a brighter note you discover that the local Rite-Aid is a heavenly smorgasbord of chewing gum choice . You can recommend the new Extra " fruit sensations" which come in a variety of flavours ( aussie spelling - f@ck you google spellcheck ) and take the edge off the food at your local jazz venue .

who needs good new music

The internet is an unsustainable addiction .
If you don't allow people to pay for quality information it will be hard to find decent stuff in amongst the junk , spam and porn .
I think all artists , musicians , writers , journalists philosophers etc should fight for this right .

It may be too lot to stop piracy online , but its not too late to stand up for our rights and ask people to pay .

chorale video

Hi there good folks ,
I made a little video today of an improvised solo . 
I have decided to "up the amount of posting " on youtube . 
It uploaded fine , unfortunately it wont offer me the option to play in HD unless I add " &fmt=18" to the end of the URL 
to the end of the video . Does anyone know how to force youtube to play your videos back in HD ?
