Note: Starting this week, the MJM will provide more variety in terms of both the format and the difficulty of MJMs each week. Generally, every month will start with an easier MJM, and each MJM thereafter will increase in difficulty until the last MJM of each month. In other words, expect to see classic single-clip MJMs near the beginning of each month, and multi-clip + theme MJMs towards the end of each month, with other formats and levels of difficulty in between. Enjoy, and as always, constructive feedback is always welcome.

Answer: Congrats to first-time winner, @queenesther, who by identifying the 8/19/12 Light (-> Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley) by sight alone, takes home two LivePhish codes! Yes, @courvoisier was technically more accurate because @queenesther didn't mention the -> Sally, but ultimately I decided to award the code to the latter contestant because the video only features ~15 seconds of Sally, and @queenesther was 19 minutes quicker. Stay tuned on Monday, especially you MJM n00bs, when we'll have our first and easiest MJM of September. All-Time MJM Results

ucpete The video isn't displaying correctly on the front page, but it will if you click the blog post header. Ironically, if you're reading this, you already know that. I'm posting this in hopes that folks will click through because someone has already commented.

I like to consider the first MJM I took over the beginning of 3.0; but this MJM could be considered the Greek '10 run of MJMs, where MJM 3.0 really started taking off ;)

FarTooManyRaccoons Love the ideas for format. Figured there had to be something nice about the jam in the clip -- people in the crowd losing it!

Lee_Fordham Nice. I like.

umuckurlife Well, that was fun. There are so many clues in videos. stage setup, hair, drinks!, lighting rig, crowd. It really opens up the game for me (hopeless with just audio). I was stuck sorting through 6/7/2012 DCU for a while before I realized there were no balloons in the MJM. Either way, thanks for letting me waste my time with you.

courvoisier I guess being accurate is not part of this game? Not sure how you can not mention that segue it's a killer one.

If he had gotten the song or the date wrong he wouldn't have won. I made an executive decision (following precedent for previous MJMs that have had a tailing -> to another song) to award him the win because he got the song and date correct, just not the -> Sally that happens in the last bit of the video. Had I worded it "identify the songs and date", and had you submitted at the same minute as him, just seconds after (as has happened a bunch of times in previous MJMs), I probably would've given you the W. I don't think I'm being unreasonable, and I'm guessing most would agree.

JMart I really wondered how you all would decide those two trailing correct answers.
I can see it both ways, but the clip was almost entirely before the transition to Sally. And there was no hint that it was going to be sally leading into it. I think the dude who said light has it, but the dude who called the segue still has the right to be pissed.
