Friends, I am a big holiday-season fan, and I like to listen to holiday music basically perpetually all through December. Please share your recommendations / playlists with me!
Here's my running playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/zapp645/playlist/3EDxGhcPZJevM185zne09s?si=_T037Q5oQDmjOhd8TuFlOQ
@makingarecord me too & my all time #1 is all the carols albums by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band!
@ranjit This is immediately really really nice! (One of my top ten albums of all time is Roberts and Barrand's "Dark Ships in the Night" so this is in my area for sure!)
@makingarecord #2 is The Glorious Sound of Christmas by the Philadelphia Orchestra
#3 is https://archive.org/details/PeopleLikeUs-ChristmasTateModern (this is a weird one)
@ranjit Wow, Ranjit, this is all total gold. Thanks! Also Christian Marclay! The "Clock" guy!
@makingarecord Yeah, the Clock guy! Though he didn't make that mix, but chose the artist (Vicki Bennett) who did.
@makingarecord also fun: The Golden Dreydl: A Klezmer Nutcracker
@makingarecord p.s. i've been listening to your spotify playlist for the last few hours, of course with the emoji yule log on my external monitor.
@ranjit Glad you like it! The Klezmer Nutcracker thing sent me down a bit of a rabbit hole, landing approximately here: https://open.spotify.com/track/3jbqlBs2Tt9JOjg1pFb0xN?si=Y9e2JmpQT-iGBfJ-98heBg
@makingarecord oh yeah, i saw that album while searching for The Golden Dreydl, but didn't look more closely. This is awesome!
@makingarecord ooh, i love those gnossiennes too
@rpcutts Nice! Some overlap, some not. I'll be listening to this today!
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
