Weekend Concert Series – Alanis Morissette (videos)

"Alanis Morissette" "Jim W. Dean"

Alanis Morissette – The Grammy Getter

Our Weekend Concert series was conceived to put our Intel assets to work going deep undercover on YouTube and digging out the musical gems of today and years gone by. America has a unique musical heritage, albeit with imported talent sometimes…Canada for example.

I led the series off with Bryan Adams, an old personal favorite. Next came Springsteen, and Michael Hedges, the famous New Age guitarist who died tragically in a 1999 car crash. So it time to get the ladies into the act with Alanis Morissette our star attraction.

YouTube can be a wonderful resource, but video and sound quality can vary widely, so sifting through an artist’s material there to find the best work can take some time.

I had started doing this for myself for a private collection, and then one day a coconut hit me on the head and I realized ‘Why not save the folks all that grunt work’?  So we are off and tolling.

Alanis Morissette began her career in Canada with two albums there as a teenager. But when she move to Los Angeles her 1995  Jagged Little Pill worldwide debut album ended up selling 30 million units and becoming the best selling debut album for a female artist in the U.S., and the Grammies started rolling in, four in 1996 for Jagged Little Pill.

Alanis Morissette – Walk of Fame Star

Her musical style has evolved as the years went by but remained uniquely hers.  No copy cat lady here. So I have three selections for you this week, an early, middle and later career performances.

Viewing notes:  Video quality can vary a bit from early career days up to now, so be sure to select the best video resolution for each one. This first one is 360p, a bit soft, but a well done hand held camera shoot which is not easy to do and stay in focus.

The audio is great because it’s done in the studio, but levels on these can vary with each one so turn yours up if you need to.

If you have a crummy pair of speakers throw them away. Life is too short. You can get areally good 2.1 system for $50 and enjoy your box seats a lot more…every time.  Email me and I will help :-)

Do me a favor it you would and pass these Weekend Concerts links out to friends you have that are interested in music. I would like to get their feedback and any suggestions for future artists. The past show links are at the end. Thanks.

Jim W. Dean … Heritage TV, Atlanta   &   Veterans Today

First up is Hand in My Pocket with a young Alanis doing a low budget shoot sitting on the floor of a modest studio delivery. All of us who have had to pull off productions on a modest budget can enjoy her proving that the right song and talent can carry the day. We can watch this with 20/20 hindsight but I think you can see the young fresh talent emerging here. No hidden gem here. It has 3.5 million views.

  –  Hand in My Pocket

Next up is Thank You, from an old VH1 Storyteller gig she did. Sorry but I did not have the date. This is 240p, a little soft on the clarity and the audio is just a bit out of sync. But this is the best cut of this I could find for this period of her career and a three camera shoot.  It  has 1.9 million views.

You are watching fully matured, confident artist with rock solid stage presence. Her band really backs her up well. Later, as the money slowed down, they got chopped…as it sometimes goes in the entertainment biz, and sports coaches.

 – Thank You

Alanis recorded Uninvited for the movie soundtrack to the 1998  film City of Angels. Despite never being released as a single it got a lot of radio air play and won two 1998 Grammies…Best Rock Song, and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. This is a 720p performance so please enjoy an artist at the top of her game.

The hair is shorter, and her delivery is a bit more subdued from her earlier days. But she still owns this dark rock ballad genre. This HD baby is a sleeper folks with under 13,000 views…hard to believe.

  – Univited

A little surprise for you at the end here…a repeat of Thank You in 720p HD at the Palladia concert above.  Surprisingly this song has pulled 31,000 views…over twice that for Univited , despite it being a more current song. A music fan like me would never pass on an HD version of another hit song when I am looking for a video material on an artist.

Here are the previous Weekend Concerts links folks. Please enjoy them at your leisure…and pass around so folks can start finding some gems for me.   I am getting feedback that people’s kids are having a blast seeing these.   Thanks, Jim Dean

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
