~ Canteen Music Dedication ~

Online Entertainment For Our Troops!

Music Theme: Canteener Music Playlists and more music!

Notes: Please ping laurenmarlowe to all requests on the thread and via FReepmail!

Thank you to LUV W, Jack Deth, Esmeralda, and TheMom for sharing some of their favorite songs with our Troops, Veterans, and their families. We hope you enjoy the diversity of musical selections.

An observation: None of our Guest Canteen Deejays had any songs that crossed over to one another's list. True diversity!
 

 


 

Canteener Playlist: LUV W
 

What was the first song you remember hearing on the radio?
1.A song called "Sentimental Journey" by Doris Day that I would sing along with and made my Mom cry as she was taking my Dad back to the train station when he was going into the Army.


What was the first album/cassette/CD did you purchase?
2. The first album I bought was when I was a really little girl of Bozo the Clown--no music, but I loved the story.

How would you describe your musical preferences?
3. Rock and easy listening, some country--not "hard" country, some alternative--or whatever artists like Enya are listed under.

-------------------------------------------

LUV W is not only a proud supporter of our military, but also the proud mother of one of our brave heroes serving. As a matter of fact, he returned home last week. In addition to being a fantastic mother and wife, she also proudly entertains our Troops on a daily basis. She happens to make some very beautiful tables that she's been sharing with all of us. Thank you for your time, talents, and energy LUV W. We greatly appreciate it!!

What message would you like to send to our Troops?

4. God bless the brave men and women who are fighting for us and risking their lives around the world so that we might be and stay free. I love every one of them

What does the Canteen Music Dedication mean to you?
5. The Canteen Dedication is a chance for me to give a little entertainment to our troops who are so far away and who might get a chance to stop by the Canteen for a little R&R. It's a chance for me to do something for them because they do so much for me!

Canteener Playlist: EsmeraldaA

1.-The first song I remember (outside children programming?) is something from Bobby Darin(my older sisters loved the guy), I think it was *Splish Splash*.

2.-My first album was The Beatles *Please Please Me* It was a birthday present though.

3.-My preferences are very eclectic, From Classical to Hip Hop only skipping (ducking for rotten food here) Country music. [Drumbo is trying to change that, LOL]

---------------------------------

Many of our Troops have had the opportunity to see our newest Canteen family member. Esmeralda is a beautiful woman that thoroughly enjoys reading, chatting with her friends online and elsewhere, her beautiful Alexis, and music. She brings to the Canteen energy, fun, and enthusiasm.

~ Canteen Music Dedication FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) ~
 


Q. How long has the Canteen Music Dedication existed?
A. The Canteen Music Dedication as a thread began over 2 years ago. It first began as a post on the thread and grew from there.

Q. Why can't I get the music to play in Quicktime or RealPlayer?
A. You can adjust it to play in whatever media player you have. You'll have to search for the answers for your specific player. We prefer to use Windows Media Player because more people have access to it. If you are still having issues, FReepmail MoJo2001 for help.

Q. I've requested a song and I still haven't seen it.
A. If it's not at the top of the thread, it's probably in the thread itself. Keep scrolling. Also, a running list of songs that we haven't found is kept. We'll keep it until we find the song and play it.

Q. I have been at FR for a long time. Why haven't I seen this thread before?
A. Why indeed. Glad you made it finally!

Q. Do the Canteen Deejays mind getting requests on the thread?
A. Not at all. One of us can fill it eventually. If not, it will go in The List.

Q. What is an MP3 search engine?
A.  MP3 search engines are places online that specifically search for MP3s elsewhere. They use either bots, spiders, or numerous other ways to track the songs for their websites. We don't like this at all. If you are caught coming from one of those sites, we'll block your ISP if possible.

Q. I have further questions. Who can I talk to about it?
A. You can FReepmail MoJo2001 or Kathy In Alaska with any questions you may have. Or you can FReepmail StarCMC.

Q. Are you going to do anymore themed music dedications?
A. Eventually! The plan at the beginning of the year was to do music themes every week. However, we've become request central these days and our time is spent fulfilling music requests. We'll try to do more in the future.

Q. I have an idea for a future music thread. Who can I contact?
A. You can contact MoJo2001, Kathy In Alaska, or StarCMC.

Q. Who exactly are the Canteen Deejays?
A. acad1228 (he plays the blues daily), Bethbg79, laurenmarlowe, bentfeather, StarCMC, Kathy In Alaska, Drumbo, GoldStarBrother, Colonel_Flagg,uncleshag, tomkow6, AZAmericonnie, beachn4fun, hotstreak, and MoJo2001. (Basically, anyone that has space and knows how to do it. Hehe!) As you'll see, each of the Canteen Deejays bring his/her own musical favorites to all of you. That is diversity folks!

Q. How do you determine what music is played at the top?
A. Usually it's dictated by requests. However, it began as a quest to introduce as much diversity for people to listen to. Listening to one genre can make you as boring and dull as Ma's taste. (Just kidding--sort of!)

Q. Do you have special music dedications?
A. We run special music dedications for Christmas/Hanukkah, Patriotic Music Festivals for Memorial Day and 4th of July. If a very popular artist dies, then we may do one for them. The last two were Barry White and Johnny Cash. Barry White happens to be a favorite for many Canteeners.

Q. Some of the artist you play have political agendas that I don't like. I really don't like seeing them played for our Troops and Veterans.
A. You're kidding us, right? If you based everything on someone's political views, you would hardly find that many folks you would like. Even at FR there are those that don't get along. This music dedication is about our Troops, Veterans, and their families. We aren't analyzing political views. We're here to ENTERTAIN!

Q. Would you mind playing more Alternative music for The Troops?
A. We've got quite a few emails lately asking about playing this genre more or another one. We highlight the Alternative music question because folks need to understand something. If you want to hear more of the music you like, request it. We aren't mind readers. Also, we try to provide as much diversity as possible. We just need feedback. Thank you!

We'll add more questions and answers when we receive the same question over and over again!!! Thank you!!

Words Of Light

Read:
John 8:12-20

I am the light of the world. —John 8:12

Bible In One Year: 2 Chronicles 10-13

cover Jesus, an itinerant rabbi from the town of Nazareth, asserted that He was the light of the world. That was an incredible claim from a man in first-century Galilee, an obscure region in the Roman Empire. It could not boast of any impressive culture and had no famous philosophers, noted authors, or gifted sculptors. And we have no record that Jesus had any formal education.

More than that, Jesus lived before the invention of the printing press, radio, television, and e-mail. How could He expect His ideas to be circulated around the globe? The words He spoke were committed to the memories of His followers. Then the Light of the world was snuffed out by the darkness—or so it seemed.

Centuries later we still listen with amazement to Jesus' words, which His Father has miraculously preserved. His words lead us out of darkness into the light of God's truth; they fulfill His promise, "He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life" (John 8:12).

I encourage you to read the words of Jesus in the Gospels. Ponder them. Let them grip your mind and change your life. You'll exclaim as His contemporaries did: "No man ever spoke like this Man!" (John 7:46). —Vernon Grounds

Thy Word is a lamp to my feet,
A light to my path alway
To guide and to save me from sin
And to show me the heavenly way. —Sellers

Because Jesus is the Light of the world, we don't need to be in the dark about God.

Set it for "Brief" instead of Full.

Is that a peace offering for your abandonment of Mr.Goat? If so, that's a better improvement than the rooster you thought would cheer us up.

Hehe!

Women
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without new shoes so their children can have them.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a new marriage. Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They have sorrow at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes. They'll drive,fly,walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world spin! Women do more than just give birth. They bring joy and hope. They give compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have a lot to say and a lot to give.

The Images of Mother
4 YEARS OF AGE ~ My Mommy can do anything!
8 YEARS OF AGE ~ My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 YEARS OF AGE ~ My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 YEARS OF AGE ~ Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either.
16 YEARS OF AGE ~ Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.
18 YEARS OF AGE ~ That old woman? She's way out of date!
25 YEARS OF AGE ~ Well, she might know a little bit about it.
35 YEARS OF AGE ~ Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.
45 YEARS OF AGE ~ Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?
65 YEARS OF AGE ~ Wish I could talk it over with Mom.

~Beauty of a Woman~

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, The figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman...must be seen from her eyes, Because that is the doorway to her heart, The place where love resides. The beauty of a woman Is not in a facial mole, But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, The passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman With passing years -- only grows.

Ladies vs Real Women

Ladies - If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant "fix-me-up."
Real Woman - If you over-salt a dish while you are cooking, that's too damn bad. Please recite with me, The Real Women's motto: "I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes."

Ladies - Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away. Real Woman - Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and drink. You might still have the headache, but who cares?

Ladies - Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips. Real Woman - Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake. You are probably lying on the couch, with your feet up, eating it anyway.

Ladies - To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
Real Woman - Buy boxed mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry for up to a year.

Ladies - When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.
Real Woman - Go to the bakery - they'll even decorate it for you.

Ladies - Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish. Real Woman - Woolies frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites over the crust, so I just don't do it.

Ladies - If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
Real Woman - Go ask the very cute neighbour to do it.

And finally the most important tip.... Ladies - Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
Real Woman - Leftover wine??

Age of Women

Age 3: She looks at herself and sees a Queen.
Age 8: She looks at herself and sees Cinderella.
Age 15: She looks at herself and sees an Ugly Sister Mum I can't go to school looking like this!)
Age 20: She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly"- but decides she's going out anyway.
Age 30: She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" - but decides she doesn't have time to fix it,so she's going out anyway.
Age 40: She looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" - but says, "At least, I am "clean" and goes out anyway.
Age 50: She looks at herself and sees "I am" and goes wherever she wants to go.
Age 60: She looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can't even see themselves in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquer the world.
Age 70: She looks at herself & sees wisdom, laughter and ability, goes out and enjoys life.
Age 80: Doesn't bother to look. Just puts on a purple hat and goes out have fun with the world.

As usual, I did the minimum amount compared to the rest of the Canteen Deejay crew. And even less than our Guest Canteen Deejays!!

Are you going to the range this weekend?
