Jam Cruise Releases Pro-Shot Video Of moe.’s Al Schnier’s Sit-In With Twiddle For “Mamunes”

first_imgThis January, Jam Cruise 15 set sail, with some of the biggest names in live music aboard, collaborating, and throwing down. While Vulfpeck was originally slated to perform on the boat, when a scheduling change forced the band to back out, Vermont’s Twiddle was tagged in. As is the Jam Cruise way, during Twiddle’s set on January 21st, the group invited guitarist Al Schnier from moe. to join the quartet during a rendition of their feel-good number “Mamunes The Faun.”moe. & Members of Turkuaz Perform “Naive Melody” On Jam Cruise [Pro-Shot Video]Across the fourteen-minute rendition, the band moves into a jazzy, laid-back, and spacious jam segment, marking a stark contrast from the upbeat chorus of the song. During this jam, the group almost moves into electronic-inspired sounds carried by Ryan Dempsey behind the keys. Eventually, this spacey section builds with urgency to a quick and frenetic peak featuring dueling guitars from Schnier and Twiddle’s resident guitarist Mihali Savoulidis before moving back into the song’s triumphant and lighthearted chorus.Exclusive Videos From moe.

Sumner Newscow poll: The Wichita vote to lessen marijuana possession question

first_imgWichita voted to lessen penalties on marijuana possession. What’s your opinion? I agree. Seems silly to put people in jail when it’s legal in Colorado. Drug abuse is a problem. I think the current state law is proper. We should go the other way and make marijuana laws stiffer. View Results  Loading …Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password?

In favor of losing running a 5-1 margin and just think what would happen if put to a vote statewide.

Report Reply +6 Vote up Vote down WellMom · 278 weeks ago I’m not sure there is a greater understanding about marijuana, but I would much rather have a violent criminal taking up space at the jail than someone caught with pot on them. Report Reply 1 reply · active 278 weeks ago -1 Vote up Vote down Choose Neither · 278 weeks ago Isn’t that a bit like saying: “I would much rather have a sprained ankle, than a broken leg.” First of all, no one presented anyone with a choice between the two.. and secondly, if you really had a choice, wouldn’t you choose neither?! I think a big question that’s missing from this conversation would be: will decriminalizing possession of and usage of something that leads many of it’s users to criminal behavior really be a viable solution to the problem of those jails needing space to be filled in the first place? The statistics coming out of states that have already done so seem to point toward… no. There’s a much larger problem here than “this is so much worse that that.” None of it is good. Report Reply -1 Vote up Vote down Samson · 278 weeks ago No, marijuana isn’t “evil”… but, it has rightly been labeled a great “gateway drug” that certainly leads to other “worse” things in many cases. People say that there’s no harm done with marijuana… reality says differently. Are there people who can smoke pot and be “just fine?” Sure, I know some who seem to be able to… but, it’s in the same way that some people can ingest any other kind of mind-altering substance and be “just fine.” Is this the rule, or the exception? I was almost killed by a person who was high on marijuana, and he had a good amount of marijuana with him at the time. If I had been smoking weed at the time, I’m sure I’d be dead right now because I wouldn’t have been able to react quickly enough to avoid the oil tanker that suddenly entered my lane barreling straight at me going 70 mph on the highway! Is it useful for some? There certainly are those who have made a convincing argument that it is… but I submit to you, that the whole debate surrounding the issue has nothing to do with helping those people and more to do with simply “getting high.” It’s selfish, and it’s uninformed nonsense to say that it doesn’t harm anyone or anything. Just look around our own little town at all the people who, after becoming bored with marijuana, just have to go higher… oh, and the argument that it “Seems silly to put people in jail when it’s legal in Colorado.” is an interesting one to make… The problem with that logic (or lack thereof), is that laws tend to change.. and I’m sure there are- or may be- many laws out there that people wouldn’t want to have here just because it “seems silly to put people in jail when it’s legal in…” Why do I even care? Other than the truck incident above- because I have family and friends whose lives have been mangled through the hold that marijuana and the activities and behaviors that come along with it has gained over their lives- and the fact that my own children are going to have to grow up with all the great “benefits” (i.e. consequences) of making it so easy and acceptable to engage in these helpful and harmless behavior.
