I want Steemit to dominate.

I’ve been on Steemit for a little over a week now. I like it better than WordPress. This community is more active and more personable to me. It reminds me of my early days of live broadcasting.

Authenticity:

A common notion that seems to be highly desired by social media is authenticity. There’s a lot of fake stuff out there. I don’t approach Steemit that way, and I don’t want to approach any other social media platform that way.

Authenticity is easier.

I’m grateful for my live broadcast experience. It has taught me the value of authenticity. I’ve been in a band for over 10 years. Sensitivity to the blurred lines between superficiality and authenticity is part of my life.

We must do our best to refrain from indulging in judgment.

Best we not forget to hate the game and not the player.

Best we not forget that everyone must pay rent and put food on the table somehow.

Bots and Upvote Dictators:

The #steemit team must find you necessary for some reason. I trust they won’t let it go too far because I’m probably not the first person to be discouraged by those capable of flagging/down vote and bots. (I’m not even sure what to call them… You know, those accounts that use other fake accounts to give themselves an unnatural amount of Steem power?) Anyway, it’s a very slick exploit and I’m sure if it were easy for the rest of us we would indulge also. Nonetheless, I won’t let it discourage my activities. Hopefully I’ll earn their respect. If not, I’ll just make it part of my new realistic expectations for this social media platform.

Yes, the challenge will be realistic expectations. I thought this would be a get-rich-quick social media platform, but it’s not. Just like most aspects of life, this takes work to make it prolific.

Summary:

I will strive onward with the genuine precedence established by my previous content.

I will continue to be that guy who makes GIF like videos.

I will continue to be that guy that posts pictures of upside down steel drums.

I will continue to be that guy who notifies steemit neighbors of my fun Periscope broadcast.

I will occasionally be that guy that talks about his discography on Bandcamp.

I will also occasionally speak about the fun steel drum band I perform with because we provide music that makes people very happy.

Authenticity has been my goal.

Please feel free to ask me questions about anything.

That GIF Like Video Guy: Huntington Gardens Pasadena, California 1 of 3

Here’s another one of my GIF like videos. I made it while touring around the desert section of Huntington botanical gardens and library located in Pasadena California.

Huntington Gardens and Library in Pasadena California is a beautiful place. Lots of beautiful people there.

GIF like videos are also beautiful.

Me and Steel Parade at The Point August 8, 2017

For this video I used a collection of screenshots taken from broadcasts while performing in El Segundo California at a shopping and eatery enter known as The Point.

https://youtu.be/zX4fTsqdHPw

These are screenshots from #buskerapp which is now gone thanks to Google and Apple’s payment system preference.

I now use Periscope to broadcast our live performances. They have a slightly attractive payment system.

Steel Parade is on Periscope too!

I really wish #steemit would do a live broadcasting app.

Thanks for watching and let us know if we can be of service to you and your event’s guests.

Peace

Fender J Bass repaired and ready for Saturday’s performance in California. 2 of 2

I wasn’t actually nervous. Those guys in Long Beach Guitar Repair know what they’re doing and it became obvious after just a few seconds worth of conversation.

Why: I was there because my bass signal was cutting out during performances. Sometimes I would sit down to rest or make an amp adjustment. After I stood up, I noticed the connection cutting out. I could fix it sometimes in the middle of a song by quickly reaching my hand down and tapping the cable.

After Chris at Long Beach Guitar Repair removed the old input jack, he showed me how the cable wore a groove and filed down the tension prongs inside the input. I could see a surface that had once been flat, was now worn down in size and shape similar to my instrument cable’s post.

While I was there, Chris fixed the loose, crackly and dirty tone knobs. I could see particles stuck between the knob and the pick guard. A few of them were actually sliding around and turning past their stopping point because a pin was missing. Chris fixed all of it.

This Fender Jazz Bass Deluxe has endured many outdoor performances near dirt, dust, and beaches. Outdoor performances starting around 5 o’clock are going to experience the temperature change that creates condensation on every piece of gear we bring. I’ve used this bass exclusively for many years and this the first electronics issue.

More upgrades: Long ago, I installed a type of strap locking system that made a grinding noise when I moved. The grinding sound would transfer through the strap lock’s button and into the instrument. To resolve the issue, I removed the locks on the strap and just used the buttons with a regular leather strap. It felt like time to upgrade the strap locks. I asked Chris to install the Jim Dunlop strap locks system.

I’ve seen this strap lock system use the most. It looks like less metal on metal contact then my previous strap lock system. Time will tell and I’ll post an update about the strap locks in a few weeks.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed the images. Please remember to upvote, follow and resteem! Your support is greatly appreciated.

My Fender Bass with a beautiful Los Angles view!

Last Saturday, me and the guys in #steelparade performed with the beautiful Los Angeles landscape behind us. Party guests received a beautiful treat as we performed with the sunset to our backs.

I didn’t catch a picture of the actual sunset, but this picture should give you a good idea of how it looked. I took the shot while facing west 😁

I have a live broadcast of this performance on my Periscope. It’s actually possible to see the sky change from day to dawn here is my second broadcast: https://www.pscp.tv/w/bI_wETFtTUtQdldZa3lnRUd8MW1ueGVtUWJtd1B4WGlI2CWb_VK6E7ZvkBS7gF9DrrInay11l840RjbFtw6k

I plan to do lots of broadcast on periscope. I wish #steemit had broadcasting capability. https://www.pscp.tv/Tetrahedroseph/follow<<<<

Well, that’s it for now. I’ll have some gifs of this day soon. I collected footage for a steel drum in the astroturf GIF. It will be the first time I’ve captured the steel drum in Astroturf. I also think I made one of my bass with the beautiful background.

Thanks for following and thanks for upvoting! Go Steemit! Love Tetrahedroseph aka @steemseph

I’ll probably become that guy that posts lots of upside down steel drums.

While performing with Steel Parade, I get many opportunities to catch an image of Phil’s steel drum upside down moments before we perform.

Sometimes I make GIFs out of my Steel Drum pictures too. It’s a new obsession, making gifs, you know!

With Electric Bass!

Ukulele too!
