WTFJITH New Years Eve Edition

Welcome to the NYE edition of WTFJITH.

Today's mission, if you decide to accept it, is to post the worst cover videos that you can think of, along with anything else you might find interesting. After 2020, we all need a few chuckles. Besides it'll be fun to see something to remind us that nobody's perfect and that somebody, somewhere, at sometime thought thought this was a good idea.

Or sometimes it's just the drummer

End of Year Gratitude


I want to thank this community. You've heard from the other 3 recipients of the JITH fund. I was the 4th. Turns out Catcher had always intended me to be one of the recipients but I didn't feel right taking as much as the others who have it much harder than me. I was ok with a 10% cut, which was enough to allow me to take a couple of days off from work this past week and still make my January rent (which is going up but I'm still getting this place for a steal). 

So thanks to all of you and your generosity. I'm amazed at how much this community raised in such a short window. I hope we can do this again next year with more lead time for people to contribute. I'd also be open to the idea of a summer drive as well, depending on how you all feel.

So with this year coming to a close, I challenge you to look for things you are grateful to 2020 for. I'm grateful for my job. For the time I've had to delve deeper into myself, especially on a spiritual level. I'm grateful that a way appeared for me to spend some time with my parents. And I'm grateful that this community is still going strong - and is still a community.

What are you grateful for?

Welcome to a special early edition, in which I revert back to the traditional name of the music thread and open the challenge to post winter holiday season music.

Gratitude and Festivas


Festivus isn't until tomorrow, so save your grievances until then. I want to talk about how grateful I am for this community.

You guys are amazing. We've raised almost $1800 to help those in need among us. If you are in financial need, please email me at No shame in asking for help. We are all here to help. If you want to contribute but are waiting for payday (like me!) here is the GoFundMe link.

You've also been very supportive over the last 24 hours of craziness in my life. I appreciate you all so much for that.

I would love if along with airing your grievances you shared your blessings. It's been a very tough year, no doubt about it, but there's been some really wonderful things about it too. Let's remember both.

Tunes n' Tarot


Another Saturday night, another Tunes n' Tarot!

Before I get into this week's card, a couple of pieces of JITH business.

The results of the surveys is that almost half of the respondents wanted a party. The most popular days/times were Friday and Saturday at 8pm EST. Since the next two Fridays are holidays, as is next Saturday, how would everyone feel about Saturday Jan 2nd at 8pm EST? Let me know in the comments.

The other piece is an initiative Catcher has started where those of us who have had a good year financially assist other JITHers who are hurting. Tina was mentioned in particular by some commenters as someone who has done so much for our community who is in a tough situation. The link to donate is here. Tom Jackson posted the link in the last thread and we've already had some donations. Thanks so much!

Hump Day Gratitude


It's another Hump Day Gratitude!

I am grateful for all the resources that have come my way recently to remind me to focus on where I want to go rather than focus on what I don't want. Basically, to cultivate thoughts that make me feel good. This has allowed me to turn around some tough situations at work.

What are you grateful for?

Below the break is a series of questions to determine interest for a JITH holiday party. You can change your vote and for questions 2 & 3 you can choose more than one.

Tunes n' Tarot


Welcome to another Tunes n' Tarot! Before I get into this week's card, I want to gage interest in having a virtual JITH Holiday party. If you are interested, let me know which days and times work best for you. Since we have people across a variety of time zones, I'm thinking early evening EST so it's mid-afternoon out west. I'm also aware that we have a bunch of people who only post on weekdays and I want to include them as well, so I'm open to your thoughts.

Hump Day Gratitude


Another week, another gratitude post.

This week, I'm grateful for the new challenges I have at work. I was starting to get bored so this is very welcome.
