this sounds like a great idea!  as the
video _watershed_ is due to be released...
sometime...i'll suggest the song of the same
name, at midnight of the release date of
_curfews_.

a+e=ig is a must for the shirt.

i don't think you want me in the wet t-shirt
contest...

anyway, peace y'all!

okay,

i've gotten some positive feedback on this idea for all of us play ig
at the same moment.  so, where to begin?

let's start with the day and time.  my suggestion would be a sunday,
like 5 or 7 p.m. est (something like that) so west-coasters and
midwesterners could all participate at reasonable hours. what do you
think?

i'm not forgetting the aussies and europeans, etc., but the times are
just too different.  but if they still want to do it...go for it!

now..the song(s).  i have sf, ig, botby, nis, rop, so.  i love 'em
all so let's get some suggestions.

thanks for all your help....

hi all,

i'm one day old in this mailing list and several months in ig fanship.
forgive the ignorance but from the latest spate of messages, i'm guessing
there's a new album coming out? please confirm, and tell me when!

also, i'll be coming to the usa (boston and orange county) for a short
vacation in october. is there such a thing as an indigo girls t-shirt and
where/how do i get one? do they have other "merchandise"? are their tabs
readily available in music stores?

as far as the playing ig simultaneously all around the world, we could
start by meeting on irc.  then we would definitely start at the same time
(although i am aware not everyone has access to irc - internet relay chat).

just a thought.

they buy, sell, and trade memorabelia from all sorts of bands including of
course, the greatest band on earth. they have hard to find and import cd's,
posters, pics etc. but _call_ them before you make a trip because they're sold

subject:      1200 curfews promo

this comes from cojehali on aol:

"marketing plans include a special promo cd sampler going to radio
which includes the first single, bury my heart at wounded knee.  the
indigo girls will also appear on some syndicated radio shows.

a movie print of the documentary-styled home video watershed will be
shown at college theatres throughout the fall.

approximately 50 of the legendary clubs and concert halls the indigos
have played over the years will be announcing the release of the new
album with in-club listening parties.

other promotional items being made include special indigo girls
guitar picks and 'tickets' to 1200 curfews."

this comes from me, a few weeks ago, someone on this list offered to
make a copy of the ig concert that took place at the greek theatre in
los angeles in june of 1991.  i have not heard from you since i
replied to your e-mail!!  let's close the deal.  please!!

subject:      interpretation anyone??

hey all,
        i'm addicted to posting....

        however, this might be a rather sane post and i do need everyone
or anyone's help...so everyone brush up on their poetic interpreting
skills and i'll ask two questions to 2 ig songs.  it's been bugging me
all day...

        a)  "ghost" (rop)  my roommate and i have looked at this song from
            every angle and we have are own understanding for all the lines
            except the following one:

                        and the mississippi's mighty
                        but it starts in minnesota
                        at a place where you could walk across
                                from five steps down....

            anyone have any interpretations as to what this means?
            (and yes...i do know that the mississippi's a river...)

        b)  "fugitive" (so)  okay, i know this one is pretty straight
            forward, but i have one question about the following lines:

                        i stood without clothes
                        danced in the sand
                        i was aching with freedom
                        and kissing the damned...

            does anyone else feel that this is a pretty solid reference
            (particularly the "damned") to amy's own sexual orientation
            and the homophobia reeking out in the public's eye?  i
            realize i might be stretching it, but i feel like it's a
            great double entendre.  i've heard amy and emily say how
            they never make direct references, but can't help but make
            implicit references to the lives they've lived as gay women
            from time to time...  i've never found anything in their
            other songs, but i was just thinking about this song today
            and it hit me... so does anyone else see the "damned" in the
            same way???

        i'm getting too long winded.  just a thought...

okay, i'll give this an interpretive shot.  the next line, "and i guess
that's how you started like a pinprick to my heart, but at this point you
rush right through me. . . "  gives some insight into what your quote means.
the love that emily is talking about started small (just as the mississippi
river starts out, "at a place where you could walk across" by only taking
five steps across), but then grew and expanded (just as the mississippi does
as it travels south).
something that is so mighty, grew out of something so small.

my thought has always been that she's saying that it started really small,
and then slowly built up until there was nothing that she could do to
control her feelings.  the comparison to the mississippi comes in because
even a river as big as the mississippi has to start from a little stream
somewhere ("it starts in minn. at a place that you could walk across...."

my interpretation:

the mississippi, though it is a vast body of water,
starts as tiny stream somewhere.  this is an analogy of how something can start
out small (like a thought) and grow into something very large (like
an obsession).>

a couple more artists you could look into that i enjoy are  maura o'connell
and tracey rielly. i only have one of mo's discs right now (blue is the
color of hope) but i know she has at least three.  tr only has one out at
the moment which unfortunatly i haven't been able to get yet but i have
heard a number of her songs and can't wait until i do get the disc.  of
course i can't leave out mary chapin carpenter! anyway, they are some of the
ones i listen to.

i have "hammer and a nail" ready for indicated iii!

i am planning on recording more songs - any requests?  no guarantees but i am
looking for ideas.

i'll probably hate myself for doing this but... per someone's request on the
list several months ago (i won't give names so don't flamer me), i started
working on a tape of ig instrumentals - songs like the cd version except no
vocals - like closer to fine on indicated ii - a karioke (sp?) ig tape, if you
will.  could anyone else contribute songs to such a tape?  would someone be
interested in organizing it?  i still burned out from sending out 110 copies of
indicated ii!  what do y'all think about this?

currently, i have "this train revised", "hand me downs", "touch me fall", "crazy
game", "closer to fine" (all of these were on indicated ii and will be the same
but without the vocals), "virginia woolf", "strange fire", "land of canaan",
"hammer and a nail", "world falls", and i may include "least complicated", "dead
man's hill", "ghost", and "you left it up to me".  mr. flamer, did i leave
anything out?

this would enable you to do your very own lead vocal instead of just singing
along with a & e.

the history of us.  i was told by rdr that they are sold out
but may have more tomorrow.  they said that the shows were not

to answer derek and the other questiosn that may be popping up..

originally perry told me (before he even had it) that it was soundboard.
since then, yes, it has turned out to be high quality audience tapes,
probably dat.

as for rdr's stock, talked to perry last night...his first shipment is
sold out (many of you probably know this from calling) but he is expecting
to get abouyt 30 more today, and is working on getting in many more
beyond that  so that hopefully everyone will be able to get a copy of
this.  i have heard one review from a non-list member.  aside from the
duplicated tracks from different shows, he is pleased with it.  i'm
sure more reviews will pop up as the discs begin to arrive in people's
mailboxes.

hope this helps..

the first thought that went through my mind upon hearing the whistle at the

it could, but i don't see it that way--of course i'm not gay so i

one just abandons all the cares and concerns the world puts on them.
she takes off her clothes and revels in the simplicity.  "aching with
freedom" i take as that in explicable feeling you after just escaping
a stressful situation.  sort of blissful, but nagging--hmm what do i
do now, my life has been run by stressors for so long, i have to take
control of it again.  as for kissing the damned, that is a refernce to
her partner, but i don't think she is damned because she's gay (mind
you there is no reference whatsoever to the sex of the kissee.  only
knowing about amy's sexual perference would you conclude this was a
female.  otherwise, it can be anyone you want, c.f. ig and gender
non-specific lyrics ;)), but because she was dragged into the stressed
world because of the love she shares.  she is under the same scruitiny
amy is, but gets none of the glory--she was damned.  finally, the
resloution, "i remember this is how it should be."

p.s.  on the "other artists" thread, check out jon svetky, ellis paul,
barbra kessler, greg greenway, dar williams, martin sexton, and the

subject:      my tainted ear...

good mornning all...
        thanks for the responnse to my interpretation questions.  yes,
now i see what the mississippi represents, but being a west coaster for
the a good 15-16 years of my life, i was completely unaware of the
geographical aspects of the river itself.  "ghost" is making a lot more
sense now and i love you guys for your help in this matter.

        just so everyone interested in those articles i mentioned a
couple of days ago knows, i'm about to send them out to jude today so
they can be scanned and posted on the list.  anyone who just wants to
read them on their terminal, they'll be here soon, via jude's computer
wizardry.  however, anyone who still wants paper copies can e-mail me
with that request and i'll e-mail ya back with my home address here in ca.

        as for my mis-quote from "pushing the needle too far", many
people have correccted me in saying that it's "you help me more by not
giving in..."  i believe however that it was the musician seal who stated
that teh reason he did not print his lyrics in his cds was because
everyone hears things differently and he doesn't want to limit them with
teh words on paper... this is a sorry excuse for my tainted ear, but i
figured it  was a good scapegoat.  :)


huh?  what was that?  whatcha saying there????

did i miss something here? what did everyone else say? the *a* section,
ie. explaining the mississippi's mighty, but it starts in minnesota' line?
imho is that although it's the mighty mississippi, it starts small (ie.
five steps across, then becomes this huge river) and it starts as
something else, ie. a small rivulet in minnesota.
metaphor for relationships that may take you by surprise... and then
emily goes on the further open the awareness by singing: i guess that's
how you started, like a pinprick to my heart..."

no great and powerful love starts as a great and powerful love. small
tinges, and feelings, ie. rivulets that we may not recognize, can grow
leaps and bound to something the size of the mississippi. it may also be
a personal metaphor for their sexuality, in respect to my own assessment
about the relationships that take one by surpris; that it starts as
'something else' and grows.

wasn't glastonbury broadcast in the states on fm (i believe pam shaw posted
about it sometime back a few months ago)  could it be a bad fm source or an
audience recording (which if it's the latter someone went through a great
deal of trouble to find, and since presumably, the broadcast would be more
prolific in terms of finding in trading circles....) i havent heard either,
and since i owe people tapes, i won't be trading for it in the near future.
(esp. this week where i am *trying* to record a stephen king reading tonight,
tomorrow nine inch nails and david bowie, and tues. ani!!) plus work ect...
getting tired from  the idea of doing all this...

*giddy laugh*

due to some kind of strange conjunction i've come into ownership of a
buncha new ig in the last few days..  so i'm out a buncha money..  so
what?  :)

last night i stopped by the local record stores looking for ig, and
found back on the bus, y'all.  no, i didn't have it yet.  but i do
now.. :)

then after reading all these posts about complicated girls, i decided
it sounded too good to pass up, so i ordered a copy of that.. (hi
perry! :)

and to kinda top it all off...

one of the vendors in the brown po today was selling cds.  mostly
used, and mostly obscure bands, limited releases, etc.  quite a
collection!  so i asked if he had any ig, and he said he'd had one but
sold it earlier.  i was disappointed, and browsed the collection a
bit, picking out a windham hill piano disc.  then he suddenly
remembers something and whips out a disc..  new mongrels, "not dead
(yet)"

i'd never heard of it, but hey! there was amy and emily and michelle!
:)  so i decided to get it, for $7..

subject:      whatever happened to...

o, high, all,

      incredible as it seems, there does exist in this world an
indigo girls pumpkin carving pattern... and as the fervor over igs'
upcoming releases rises, i am sharpening my knives and wondering if
anybody knows whatever happened to...

     um, i think it was a paula, who was putting together the book of
ig stories, poems, or what-have-you ( i personally contributed some
what-have-you, hence my interest) from 'ye olde ig list, ctf??

     does anyone remember anything about this or have any follow-up?
i thought they were gonna expectorate something in mid march, but i
haven't heard any updates.

    let me know if you know.

remember                                    peace

subject:      more from rdr , some igc

ok ok ok i know tehre hasbeen a lot of traffic for rdr with
complicated girls but there are other things of note hiding in the racks
in perry's store..

kristen hall's real life stuff:  perry has the last of teh cd's you will
see of this disc for quite a while, adn thatis fact from kristen
herself.  even better, all of these discs are signed.  for whomever
was asking about related artists to listen to, this disc should
be high on your list of "to-gets"

michelle malone:  signed copies in stock of both teh swinging christmas
at the attic and "new experience".  teh first is on cassette, the second
on cd.

and speaking of cd's..collections are coming out of the wood works.
perry has in stock the outloud benefit cd.  teh track list has been
posted before, but it includes a live ig "dead man's hill" as well
as disappear fear, u2, everything but the girl and ani difranco among
many others.

teh silverwolf homeless project..a new collection benefitting, obviously,
teh homeless.  it;'s a who's who of folk starts:  tom prasado-rao,
tom paxton, john gorka, john mccuthcheon, patty larkin and cheryl
wheeler are on this disc.

mt stage vol 8 whihc includes billy pilgrim, band de soleil, syd straw,
and ani difranco.

and finally, "here we are", a collection from asheville nc including
christine kane and david wilcox.

for those still debating getting the complicated girls bootleg..perry has
6 left and one otehr without a cover (he'll give you a deal on that one).
otherwise, it will be atleast 2 weeks befor emore are expected.

that number again is 1-800-636-6166

wait!!!!!!  you might want to check your back scroll of messages!
while you weren't monitoring the list i think that a number of people
wanted to slow down the project and look at designs (there is talk of
a web site for this).  someone else knew of a way to do them for half
the cost.  wait a few days to get things strightened out before
placing the order, it might be prudent.

gosh, we really like you guys -- no other mailing list gets minute-to-minute
updates of this cd. :)

first of all, in talking to the distributor, no one actually _has_ out loud
cds for sale, til the 20th.   iglhrc, and the distributor, ask that you do
your very best to order at cost, through the information provided at the www
site, which will be open on monday, 9/18, for pre-ordering.  this is
because, for purely economic reasons, iglhrc gets more cash (and it _is_ a
benefit, after all :) ).

next, it's not "dead man's hill," it's "jacob's ladder/this train" -- i just
listened to the clip we have on the site, and that's definitely a dobro. :)

so, yes, the official release of the cd is 9/20, the www site will be open
on 9/18, the ig track is "this train," and i'm going to bed.

watch for the spam on monday, then flock to the site and make us all happy.
:)  for those of you sans www access, i will, on monday, personally give you
all the ordering info you want, if you choose the more-money-for-iglhrc route.

thanks for being patient, everyone involved thanks you all.

okay, i'm from minnesota so i'll take this one. the headwaters of the

the river is so narrow that tourists come and cross the river by hopping
across a line of large rocks. as usual, emily has chosen an inspiring

other performers you may like if you like ig include the judds and
mary chapin carpenter (both pretty mainstream country, but nice
songs and harmonies.)  cris williamson is another real favorite
of min [c.  you may want to sample juliana hatfield, sinead o'connor
(she may be a little edgy as a person, but she's made some lovely
music), margie adam, theresa trull, etc.

btw, hi, i'm a lurker who just moved from fort wayne, in to ann
arbot, mi and i'm in music heaven.  there are more good shows in
the first two months i'll be living here than there were in six
years in fort wayne.

we saw theresa trull last weekend.  we have tix for ani defranco
(who better be good - i picked up the tickets based on what i've
read from ig fans on this list) and mary chapin carpenter.  on
the day we went to see theresa (sp?) trull, i found out rem!!!
is playing here in october.  tickets go on sale on saturday and
i plan to camp out, if necessary, to try to get some.  that same
evening, i found out my longtime love cris williamson is coming
here in december to play at the coffee-house sized ark and that
juliana hatfield will be here in october...

i discovered ig when i heard galileo on the radio and was blown
away.  i got to my office, called the radio station, and made
someone look up what had been playing at the time i'd written
down when i heard the song.

i know i'm a real come-lately fan, but fort wayne radio sucks
bigtime.  i've been out of it, musically, for the past six
years, relieved only by the occasional hit that crawls over onto
really really commercial commercial radio.

i got into feminist music because my sweetie, jim, was a big
fan.

more than enuf for now, i guess.  gotta get those rem tickets...

actualy, the past week or so i've spent simply trying to arrange this
deal.  and i have to pay sales tax on them because i'm purchasing the
shirts from my neighbor across the street as a reseller (not paying
tax on the shirts themselves) ... so when i send them out i have to
pay tax, i did this because not many of you are in wisconsin so i
would pay less tax alltogether.  also, since i've had 72 people people
request shirts, and have had not one cancellation, i figured i should
go ahead and order.  i haven't even read my birthday e-mail (my b-day
was last week) i've been so busy working on this.

well, the shirts are unbleached cotton (ironicaly, more expensive them
bleached cotton) they will have indigo letttering, on the front it
will say "folkisgruven", on the back it will say
"indigo-girls@netspace.org" and "'i've no need for anger with intimate
strangers' - amy ray (reunion)", the left sleeve will say "a + e =
ig", and the right sleeve will say "net.indigo_girls"

the order will be postponed 'till monday to give me time to figure
this out...

hi,

for those of you who have asked what country i'm from, it's singapore.
which may hopefully explain the ignorance behind this next question:

which is amy and which is emily?

my next question is about fare thee well in swamp ophelia. i like that
song a lot and have finally come to a satisfactory understanding of it.
but do any of you know who emily is referring to in the song?

   whoever was looking for music similar to igs (aren't we all?) might
like to try getting hold of something by the dear janes, another female duo
who make alot of use of vocal harmony and a mix of acoustic and electric
music.  although i'm not sure if their music is easily available in the u.s.,
  i have seen their cds in bigger record stores in the u.k..  so you might need
to order or hunt around, but it'll be well worth the effort.  if you're
keen you're welcome to send me a blank tape and i'll copy some of their
stuff for you - email me!

subject:      complicated review...

eighteen days until curfew folks!!!!

hey y'all,
        got "complicated girls" today and have already scanned through it
to see what it's all about.

        as aforementioned, the titles are pretty far out there.  reunion
shows up twice under different titles, "nothing to hide" and
"inspiration".  chickenman  actually takes up two tracks, #10 & #11 -
don't ask me why they would consider these tracks two songs, but it does
play through with no interruption.

        enough about the technicalites...is it good????  i think it is.
it truly is a matter of preference.  some of you guys might think it's no
where near the quality of "history of us" (at least that cd has the
correct titles to songs).  personally, i am more partial to "history of
us", but with "complicated girls", i think it was worth my $30.  tracks
#1-8 really have the best quality and the rest are okay.

        but i'm also kind of wierd when it comes to this  because i would
pay $30 bucks anyday to hear amy's monologue to reunion on this cd over
and over again.  really...how many times in one ig fan's lifetime do
you get to hear amy say "shit..."  :)

        "burn my heart on wounded knee" is incredible here, but my
favorite has got to be the ig cover of "midnight train to georgia".
emily's matured so much as a vocalist, that her voice is so powerful
now.  remember the days of sf and the debut when emily's voice got lost
behind amy's three dimensional powerhouse crooning??  not anymore,
because emily's finally belting.  i break into a sweat everytime i hear
reach from her gut and pull out incredible notes.

        "complicated girls" has some great highlights, but i'm still one
for the "history of us" cd.  this new one certainly buries "days of wine
and roses", the italian import i bought last year.  if only those fools
whould get teh titles right....


peace and hair grease,
teri

cathy,
        when i saw the girls at teh laguna seca festival in monterey this
may, i rushed to the front of the stage to get close enough to emily so i
could rip off some solos :).  anyways my brother didn't come up with me
and instead when to the side of the stage to see backstage activity and
try to get a glimpse of amy or emily.
        emily comes walkingg his way and he yells out for her from behind
the fence.... "hey emily, can i have an autograph".  "i'm sorry, i
have to go to the bathroom,"she responded.  my brother says she wasn't mean
about it or anything, but that she really had to go...  she entered to
port-a-potties near the fence and my brother walked away, letting her do
her business.
        i swear this is a true story.  now there is proof that, contrary
to popular belief, at least emily is human.   wwe still have to see about
amy though....


going to the bathroom,
teri.

....i think my copy is a little funky - some dead space on the
reunion intro (track #16, i believe)??  i will live with this, it's
just a few seconds missing (i guess)...but would somebody be able to
post the whole intro.  it's kinda short.

my little review-ette:  agree 'bout the titles <duh>.  makes it hard
to play a track, i mean what the heck does "inspiration"  have to do
with the first "reunion"? <shakes head>  ...2nd closer to fine is
better.  amy yells "prostrate!".....more cool stuff, but as it is i
have listened to it all only twice and am still noticing stuff.
really good photos here.....even on the cd itself, which is
impressive.  what is not impressive is amy has a zit...(ah, youth).
<ducking>

but i'll tell you.....there damn well better be a good chickenman rap
on the live cd, i swear.....because if whoever these tornado people
are can put this out, i know big bad epic can do even better.....

once again from sunny socal :)

this is just another point to ponder... it kinda follows the comment
someone made that the indigo girl who wrote the song also is the first
one to sing it... well has anyone noticed that the indigo who didn't
write the song is usually the first with the "thanks y'all!"

just food for thought :)

i have proof that amy, too, is human, for what it's worth.  she actually
left the stage in the middle of the new haven show this past april -- sara
lee and emily are doing this long, long intro to "crazy game," and we're
all wondering what's going on and where amy is when suddenly amy runs back
out on stage and starts singing.  after the song, she says, "my mom asked
me once, amy, what do you do if you ever had to pee during a show.  i told
her that i don't ever have to pee during the show."  and then she laughed
this great, ha-ha-i-told-you-so laugh.  it was really, really funny.  so
there's your proof.  and i even have it on tape :)

by the way, i n't make a habit of commenting on amy and emily's
bathroom habits, but this was really funny...

hi :)

i'm not sure if this is what you are looking for, but here is some info on
an ig newsletter called 'lifeblood'.

take care -

carolyn

**************************************************

hi!  thanks for your interest in lifeblood, here's what's up:

history:  lifeblood was started in may of 1992, when rites of passage was
released, and has been published once a month since that time.

what it is:  it's primary mission has always been to bring fans together and
to gather and disseminate as much information as possible about amy and
emily's public musical activities.  this information includes album and
single releases, tour schedules, tv appearances, and comments they have made
to the media and to fans, but does not include details of their private lives.

who reads it:  lifeblood's subscriber list fluctuates between 40 and 60
people, including several in canada and in england.  to the best of my
knowledge neither amy or emily is aware of lifeblood's existence.  while i
am proud of the newsletter and hope that they would have no objections to
it, i don't want it to turn into a "hey, look what we your loyal fans have
done" thing.  i don't think it is right to have any expectations of them
just because we have gotten together a newsletter.

subscriptions:  lifeblood is free to anyone who sends me a long, letter
sized sase with 55 cents postage.  back issues are available for $6.00 in
stamps which will be used to put them into two priority mail envelopes and
send them speeding on their way to you.  i publish it at my own expense - i
would not feel comfortable making money off anything involving indigo girls.

where the material comes from:  the information in lifeblood comes from it's
readers, whose contributions are always encouraged.  it has no connections,
either official or unofficial, with indigo girls, russell carter's office,
or epic records.

advertisements:  ads are run for free, all you need to do is write down what
you want it to say and mail it to me and i will include it in the next issue.

i hope this answers the majority of your questions,  i look forward to
hearing from you again.  i am currently doing research on indigo girls and
am interested in trading for articles, photos, photocopies of ticket stubs,
pretty much anything having to do with them.  take care and be well -

whew-ee!
thank you amy!!!

i got the latest update from amy p on rdr, and i picked up the phone before i
had even finished reading the message! and i nabbed one of the signed kristen
hall's. here i was, trying not to spend too much money on music and stuff,
thinking to myself, "oh, i can get real life stuff any time i want." wrong!
i'm glad i got one before they were sold out because i love kristen! speaking
of other artists to listen to, she's definitely one to check out! in fact, i'd
say she's my second favorite. anyhoo, i got real life stuff (signed <g>) and
complicated girls on their way to me right now. life is good, and no, i didn't
really need the money to go grocery shopping or anything unimportant like
that. i'll let ya guys know what i think of complicated girls when i get it.
(btw, how are we gonna abbreviate this one? cg is "crazy game", we simply have
to continue our tradition of making up abbreviations that are indecipherable
to anyone who's not an ig fan (you know you're an ig fan when you understand
all the abbreviations.) i suppose it'll be cg's or cgrls or something like
that. :)

i got nth in the cd player with "southern man" going right now. *sigh* my
three favorite artists all at once. now if we can just get michelle malone in
there too.

another btw: i'll reiterate the request someone made for kristen hall chords.
i'd love to learn how to play her stuff too. one of these day's i'm going to
sit down and just try to figure some of them out. if anyone else already has,
lemme know.

another comment on the new haven show ...

i remember amy leaning over to emily and motioning to the side of the stage
(probably saying ... "do something ... i gotta pee !!!!") ... emily walked
over to sara lee and must've said follow my lead .... then broke into a
beautiful instrumental opening to crazy game ... i bet the song wasn't on the
set list ... anyone snag one ???

when amy left the stage, i poked my friends next to me and said "she's
probably going to pee ...." , they laughed and said "yeah right" ... but when
she walked back out she was eating a banana ... for a second i thought maybe
she just got real hungry ...

and her laugh was great ... i suppose this was the first time it ever
happened ...

also *** another musical interlude ... like the one mention yesterday about
tmf on the real world (mtv) ... well - mtv may not play their videos, but i
hear the beginning of power of two during (yes) fashion television or
whatever it's called ...

i was at this show (yea!) and it's the only time i've ever heard the whole
reunion story told in this way. great story, and amy's "shit" at the end had
us all roaring. :) it kinda surprises me that everyone's surprised when a or e
curse (particularly e). because i always thought of them as just regular folks
who do (yes they really do) swear when the occasion calls for it. when ya
gotta say shit, ya just gotta say it. besides, it really does fit their
personalities, amy especially. not that they're crude or anything, but they're
real people, ya know? (here, of course, i have to mention the potty thread. i
was a _little_ surprised that nature actually called for them too, but then
again, if they didn't go to the bathroom, they'd have exploded long ago from
all that tea they drink:) oh, and the whole amy-potty-bananna story is rotfl
funny. :) now, where was i? oh yeah, the cursing thing. i heard michelle
malone do it too. at stabler she was saying something to the folks way up in
the bleachers, and she said that she could hear them, but she couldn't see a
fucking thing. i haven't heard a or e be quite that free with their swearing,
but really, they're just words, right? ("for free/ fucking mtv" and "...and i
said, shit.") i'm sure there are other examples. really, it's not that
surprising. funny maybe, but not surprising. :)

gee folks, can you tell that i'm bored and i have way too much time on my
hands? (sitting in my lab waiting for my sample to finish concentrating, and
getting physically violent with a piece of equipment that won't work properly.
but at least i got ig blast on my cd player.)

anyway, i forgot another very important "cursing episode" in my last post, and
i'm so ashamed (since i was there and all) that i just had to post to correct
this oversight. i realize this has been discussed and all, but since i was
listing them, i gotta make my list more complete, so let's add: "be on my
side, i'll be on your side. together we can...oh fuck!"  so there. now i guess
i have all that foul language out of my system for a while. :)

and i just had to tell you folks, i finally got my newport pics developed.
(finally!) and i have a couple that you really have to be an ig fan to
appreciate. (you know you're an ig fan...) they're kind of a "where's waldo"
sort of thing. can you find the indigo girl in this picture? they were both
taken from the fence looking back stage. one is looking dead center at the
_back_ of a certain dark haired, tall, broad shouldered girl who is surrounded
by a small group of people, and the other is a side view of a grinning
strawberry blond who is just about to disappear behind the stage. both
pictures are completely crowded with other people. not exactly the sort of
thing i could sell to rolling stone magazine. i had to tell you about them
because 1) i'm bored and 2) i think it's hysterical that i not only took these
pictures, but that i'm so excited about having them that i'm going to put them
up on my office wall next to my other ig photos. <g>

gotta go sing along with mona lisa's... can't type and sing...  trash can
dreams.... mona lisa's.... good morning to the night...

oh, sorry, i should log off now.

        to let you know that you're not alone...i went to the bridge
school concert neil young and his wife hold every year or so to see ig
for the first time live (late bloomer is i).  it was in mountain view,
just outside of san fran. last october and everyone was there to see
pearl jam (pearl who???) but the girls truly did steal the show.

        anyways, pearl jam came on after amy and emily and i'm in the
boonies (i'm talking real far) sitting with all these pathetic fools in
the lawn area.  there were 25,000 people there, so it's a big
amplitheatre.  and all throughout pearl jelly's set, i'm tuggin at my
brother's sleeve because i'm convinced emily's standing to the side of
the stage to watch their set.  i was borrowing stanger's binoculars
because i was conviinced it was emily!  it was like staring down from the
top floor of the empire state building and staring down and saying "i
think i see my mom!".  pathetic...

        listen y'all, we've got to get used to sharing these type of
stories because after "1200 curfews" and "watershed" come out, we ain't
gonna have nothing to talk about until 1997 when it comes to new ig
music.  as sad as it seems, we're going to be dwelling on what type of
shoes they're wearing by this time next year...

i have a story to add at last about wearing an ig t-shirt!

i was at a deli in studio city, ca a few hours ago and i was wearing
my ig t-shirt (rites of passage shirt linda :) and the waitress sees
emily on my shirt from a distance and asks if i'm earing a fleetwood
mac shirt.  when she sees it's indigo girls she says that she loves
ig and that she's never seen an ig shirt before.

i asked her if she knew that they had a new release coming next month
and she says no; so i explain about 1200 curfews and watershed.  when
i mention that watershed has videos from closer to fine to power of
two, she says,"i love power of two."

hey, not only have i heard of melissa ferrick, i met her and her bass
player, marika tjelios at a concert in cincinnati, ohio.  she's really sweet
and humble as can be.  i told her that i thought she was an incredible
guitar player and she was embarassed.  she even signed her cd "willing to
wait" for me.
if she comes around your part of the country, you've got to go see her live.
she puts on a wonderful show -- full of fire and energy.
i'm a great fan, but no one seems to know who she is -- got to get the word
out on the streets.
okay, back to the ig.  i saw this and i couldn't help responding.

subject:      complicated girls problem?

i picked up a copy of complicated girls.  the disk is pretty good, but
i think i may have a dud copy.  does the last track, number 16, listed
as nothing to hide (reunion) cut off when the counter is at 4:00?  my
copy cuts off right there... definitely not the end of reunion.
it is just beofre where they sing "all of us, all of us, all of us, all
of us... "

anyway does everyone's copy cut off here?  or is mine a defective disk?
i can't check the store where i bought it, because they only had the one
copy.

thanks for any help anyone can give.

well being that i made the original request i think it's a great idea.  i

singing along to ig is one of my favorite pastimes.  so to have just the

hey :)

i talked to the guy at kts the other day...i sent one of my hou's back there
over a month ago...

apparently, the gist it that they're doing a repress and they'll get good
copies in the end of this week or so...

i have no clue if he was b/sing or not, i'm gullible like that, but he seemed
genuine...

he said they'd send me a clean copy when they got some...i'll let y'all know
if and when it gets here sos you can inundate them...

the international gay and lesbian human rights commission and hidden water
are please to announce the www site for the out loud benefit compilation cd
at http://www.hidwater.com/outloud/

the site will contain select sound clips from the 17 tracks, such as a live
version of "jacob's ladder/this train (revised)" by indigo girls, previously
unreleased tracks by artists including disappear fear, u2, and melissa
ferrick, and old favorites by such artists as everything but the girl.

iglhrc's preferred method of ordering will be through the site, which is
online ordering directly through the distributor.  phone, fax, and email
orders will be taken, and will be shipped anywhere in the world. while the
cd will be available through other select catalogs, by ordering through the
distributor, iglhrc receives a far larger portion of the proceeds.

the street date of the cd is 9/20, and pre-orders will be taken.

spread the word, and help make this benefit cd a success.  in addition to
iglhrc, sponsorship has come from knitting factory works, the advocate,
deneuve, and 10 percent, and of course, the artists who have donated their
material.

.........well actually, amy has this pair of american flag converse
high top tennis shoes, they are red and white striped on the bottom
half and blue with big white stars on the upper half.  i was standing
about 1 foot from where she was standing after watching a local band
play so i took the opportunity to say "where did you get those shoes?"
she said that someone gave them to her.  i asked "they look like
something out of the seventies and she said "no, they are new, i think
that they were from some sort of gulf war promotion or something."


.......so um, the next tour starts when?         :>

amy...newport folk fest..."down by the river"... the "together we can..." line
is a screw-up. wrong first verse, so she backed away from her mic saying "oh,

aw. not so pathetic. first of all, it very well _could_ have been emily,
because she does like pearl jam. second of all, i did essentially the same
thing at newport. during ferron's set i could see just a hint of a familiar
head sitting off to the left of the stage behind a bunch of sound equipment.
after hearing that emily was indeed a big ferron fan, i grabbed my camera and
ran off to get into the picture line. then i stood on the opposite side of the
stage and snapped a few pics looking across the stage (directly past ferron,
i'm embarrassed to say, because she was awesome too.) at emily sitting there
listening and clapping. all i could see was this vague little spot of her
head, but i had to take pictures anyway. :)


>music.  as sad as it seems, we're going to be dwelling on what type of
>shoes they're wearing by this time next year...

oh, i wouldn't say that. i can certainly think of a few "interpretation" type
questions i've been saving for when we're looking for things to talk about,
and anyway, their shoes (or more frequently boots) aren't such a bad topic. :)
after all, we're all getting a big kick out of discussing their bathroom
habits. (kind of amazing, when you think about it, that we're fascinated by
the fact that amy and emily do indeed, go to the bathroom) <bg>

     this is for the "you never know where ig will turn up" files...

     i was half-watching the sunday morning show yesterday when suddenly i
     heard ig singing this snippet:  "galileo's head was on the block."
     the show was doing a piece on the lab school, a school that addresses
     children's special learning needs with non-traditional teaching
     methods.  (the kids were dressed up in medieval costume and the
     teacher was asking what "on the block" meant and who had ordered the
     execution.)

don't feel too bad greg.  i spent most of my childhood dealing with, "hey
bert, where's ernie?" that was until i started responding with, "i took a
chainsaw to him, and i'll do the same to you if you don't shut up."  oh, how
wonderful childhood can be.

on the other subject, i really start to worry when i think of indigo girls
songs being used for karaoke.  what is the world coming to?  the only thing
worse is muzak.  i am just kidding though.  it sounds like a good idea, and a
lot of fun.  good luck getting the instrumental tracks.  you could always
call sony, pretending to be a karaoke company, and request copies of ig songs
without words.  ya never know.

subject:      something to talk about

well, if we are so desperate for something to talk about, i would like to
bring up my projects gaain, and see if there is any interest in them.  i
first posted these ideas during the summer, and there was a significant
response.  i posted  them again a few weeks ago, after everyone had returned
from school, and this time, there was very little response.  i know that just
because something is important to me, it isn't necessarily going to be
important to everyone else, but, the way i figure it, a mailing list like
this can be very effective in mobilizing people for a common cause, so i
would like to try to do that here.

i want to start a letter writing campaign to ben & jerry's to have a flavor
created named after indigo girls in some way, shape, or form.  i previously
proposed indigo swirls crunch which would be vanilla/vanilla bean ice cream
with chocolate covered blueberries, grape nuts, and blueberry swirls
throughout.  this is just one idea.  i am sure that we can think of several
others.  it doesn't necessarily have to center around indigo girls like this
one does.  you could use the name of an album or a song and create a flavor
out of it.  be creative.  be imaginitive.  be corny.  be dorky.  be stupid.
be whatever, but submit an idea; any idea, and after i've received a bunch,
i'll post them publicly and we can vote.  if you post your ideas to the list,
you might inspire an idea for someone else or someone could improve on
someone else's idea.  also, if you can only think of a name, but not the
ingredients, that is fine.  we can brainstorm and come up with something.  or
if you can only think of a group of ingredients, but not a name, that is fine
as well.  i am interesting in getting as many responses as possible, so no
matter how silly or outrageous your ideas might be, please submit them.  at
the very least, i am sure that it'll be good for a few laughs, which is
always a good thing.

the second idea i am not as devoted to, so if it doesn't happen, i won't be
too unhappy.  this was the idea of doing a jcs tribute as our next indicated.
even though it is really not an ig creation, i know that the cd and the live
shows have brought a lot of us a lot of joy, and i think it would be fun to
try to recreate a little bit of the magic that ig and their friends gave to
us.  i previously proposed people on the list and their friends who aren't
get together with others who live relatively near them in groups and record a
few songs each.  i don't know how many groups we can put together, but i am
confident that we can get enough to cover most of the songs on the cd.  the
toughest thing is getting sheet music for those who don't already know how to
play the songs and aren't advanced enough to improvise, which i imagine
speaks for about 99% of us (i am definitely included in that figure).  i
think the best part about this is that it will provide an opportunity for
those of us who are less talented to express our love of the music in this
way.  remember, the tracks do not have to be professional quality.  we are
not try ing to get record deals here.  we are only looking to have a lot of
fun with some music that we all love and cherish.  this means that my lousy
voice and i will have the chance to be heard doing "pilate's dream" outside
of my car or shower.  speaking of singing in the shower.  i know that i am
getting away from the point of my post, but i would like to ask a stupid
question.  how many of us sing in the shower?  how many of us sing ig in the
shower? and for those that do, what ig songs do you find yourself singing
most often in the shower?  whoops, that was three questions.  just a little
side thread.  i hope these questions don't get a bigger response than the
task at hand, which was... ?  i think you all get the point.  post your ideas
about these projects and maybe effective ways of making them happen.  i look
forward to hearing from y'all (another example of the effect ig has on this
northerner).

peace pops

i forgot one last thing.  i'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to
the disney corporation for my allegations that they were an
ultra-conservative company with a radical right wing agenda.  i was gravely
misinformed.  i realized this today when i went in this store that had a lot
of radical right/christian coalition propaganda on display.  i was pretty
disgusted by its presence in this store which i had patronized in the past.
my first instinct was to leave and never go back, but fortunately, i decided
to look at some of the trash that was being spouted.  it was while looking at
the various fliers and photocopied sheets that i came upon one sheet that was
viciously attacking disney for all of its "anti-family" activites.  the focus
of the attacks were on miramax films, a subsidiary of disney which has
recently come out with films like priest, kids, and pulp fiction, and the
gay/lesbian days at disney world.  after reading all of the misinformation on
this sheet, i have come to look at disney completely differently.  heck, if
they can piss off the rr/cc this much, then they must have some very good
qualities.  looking forward to october 15 with an extra-special zeal now.

if anybody wants copies of any of the rr/cc's propaganda, so you can see for
yourself what kind of hateful, mean-spirited, and ignorant people they truly
are, e-mail me privately and i'll make arrangements to get this trash to you.

have a nice day

i got mine from rdr (which has always been very reliable) and mine also

perhaps it's a defect in all the cd's...

darren, i remember hearing once that the igs were absolutely not
internet/computer fans... matter of fact, they don't like the idea/theory
of the internet-online connection at all. i believe that amy is the more
vehement of the two in regards to her dislike of such.

sorry i can't give you a definitive source for that information... i just
heard it from a guy who's a die-hard igs fan who interacted with them on
america online when they were center stage for an interview/conference. he
was sorta disappointed in their 'lack of presence' and short-simple
answers, and seemed disapponted that he igs didn't share his enthusiasm
for the online connection!

biggest fool out of myself when i met the girls.  it
was after the show at the tower in philly last april.  the *wonderful*
michelle malone had befriended me and taken me backstage....after what seemed
like forever, we got upstairs to meet the girls.  amy came right over and,
after talking to mm, took my hand while i sputtered out that she was my
hero...seriously, it took me a long time to get the words out...she was just
like "uh huh" but she was really cool to us:)  when we got over to emily, my
friend emily was reaching to shake her hand when es said "it's really great
to meet you" totally throwing my friend emily off...her words came out all
wrong......we were just really excited and really happy...it was great...i
mean really *great*...sorry for gushing
see you,

subject:      meeting the girls...(this is long)

i have had many wonderful experiences meeting the girls and members of
their band.  i first met them at the notre dame concert last october.  i
had managed to sneak out early so that i could catch them.  i remember
that there were a few of us standing there and all of the sudden, the
backstage door flies open and there they are.  i am stunned, of
course...but i stopped them to ask for their autograph.  they both signed
my so cover and as their crew people are trying to shove them into the
car, this girl asks amy if she can have a hug, so amy hugs her.  i then
asked if i could have one, too, and so i hugged her...emily was already
in the car, much to my dismay.

next time:
charleston, sc 2-7-95
two of my friends and i blew off school for 3 days and road tripped from
south bend, in to charleston.  it was a crazy thing to do, but fun.
anyway, we had bought them presents and so as soon as we got in town,
around noon on the day of the show, our goal was to find them.  we must
have asked people a thousand questions and i finally got a doorman at a
hotel to confess that they were staying at the hotel.  he said that some
woman in a white van was driving them around.  then he turned around and
looked out the window and said that the van was sitting right there in
front of the hotel.  so, we went outside and there was the driver in the
car.  we went up to the car and asked her to roll down her window and
asked her if she was driving the girls around.  she said she was and in
fact, was waiting for emily to come out to take her to the house where
they were shooting the power of two video.  as she is talking to us, she
gives us directions to where this house is.  so, i'm looking around while
she is describing this to my friends and all of the sudden there is emily
walking right towards the car.  i almost peed my pants right there.  she
opened the door and we were so dumbfounded that we almost forgot about
the present.  so, we said, "we know you're in a hurry, but we have a
present for you."  so, we gave it to her.  she gave us that amazing smile
of hers and she drove away.  by the way, the gift was a 1938 copy of a
virginia woolf book.  so, we get in my car and go to this house where
they are shooting the video.  it was way cool.  then we went to the
auditorium where the concert was and talked to michelle malone who had
befriended us in south bend.  then we found out that the girls weren't
going to come and do a sound check because they were still shooting the
video.  so, we get in the car again and go back to the house.  we are
just standing there looking at the house and all of i sudden i see amy
and emily walking right out the front door.  we still had to give amy her
present, so being the only brave one, i rush up to her and say we have a
present for her.  she said, "oh yeah, emily told me.  she showed me what
you gave her.  it's really cool."  then, of course, i'm really dying.
so, they get in the white van and drive off.  then, after the concert, i
go around to the backstage door.  there was no one around, not even the
policeman who had been guarding the backstage door.  so, i just walked in
and right away i can hear amy's voice.  so, i go up these stairs and i
get to the top and there they are...amy, emily, and two women who were
apparently friends of theirs, all looking at me like, "how did you get up
here?"  well, during the show, emily had thanked us for the book on stage
and dedicated a song to my friend's little sister who couldn't be at the
show.  so, i told emily i was one of the people who gave her the book and
i told her that she had just made that little girl's life by saying
that.  she said, "well, it was a really special gift and i appreciated
it."  so, knowing they were getting pissed, i asked emily if i could hug
her and so she hugged me and then i asked amy if i could hug her.  while
she is hugging me, she says, "thanks for my book, too."

okay, i think that is enough for now.  i'm not going to go into the other
stories right now from the honor the earth tour.  so...i will have to
post those another day.  hope you like the stories.  sorry they are so long.

jon, i would encourage you to wait a little longer till we reach more of a
consensus about the shirts.  i was one of the people that wrote you saying i
wanted one, but we don't need *two* different ig mailing list shirts --
particularly since, at the moment, we have but one ig mailing list!

hmm...this may just be me but that borders on invasion of privacy.

there was mention at the west coast shows of security problems back east
and now guests had to go through two security checks before getting to
the hospitality room after the shows.

i know there were nothing but the best of intentions but going to the
hotel, then a video shoot and finally sneaking back stage might have
seemed like a bit much on their end.

it's nice to be remembered but what you're remembered for is just
as important.

so -- are we going to take a vote???? i agree that a small photo or
graphic of a&e would enhance the shirt -- does anyone have a great photo
of ig they're willing to share with the list? we could have folkisgruven
written in small letters over the photo?? jon seems to be ready to go
ahead with ordering the shirts, so we should come to a consensus soon.
what say you, ya'll???!!!

subject:      indicated iii has begun!

we have a volunteer for indicated iii...it's...me, once again!  we'll be using a
tape tree of dubbers to minimize my workload this time around.

note to newcomers:  "indicated" is a series of tapes consisting of songs as
recorded and performed by list members.  if you have a guitar and microphone,
record your best attempts of ig songs and submit your tape.  your song(s) will
be on the indicated iii collection and will be sent out to maybe 100 (or more)
people from all over the world.  amy and emily have each been personally given a
copy of indicated ii (no one is certain if they even listened to any of it) so
there is a chance that a&e will actually hear your song(s).  this is strictly
for fun and no one will make any money off of this project.

like indicated ii, i'll be taking your submissions for songs to be included on
indicated iii.  i will create "master" tapes which will be sent to various
dubbers around the country who will then make copies for others.

who wants to contribute?  what sort of deadline is reasonable?  december 1?
which songs will you submit?

my goal once again is to fill a 90 minute tape worth of something resembling
music!

groundrules:  if you submit at least one song, that song will get on the
finished tape.  no matter how good or bad it may be, it will be put on the tape.
if you submit multiple songs (highly encouraged), i cannot guarantee that they
will all be on the tape.  i will ask for your preferences but i will retain
editorial authority and decide which songs end up on the tape.  songs already
covered by indicated i and ii can be covered again on indicated iii is your wish
to do so.  i need a cassette submission and you'll need to inform me if you used
any noise reduction (dolby b, c, or s) on the tape.  if you have access to
4-track or 8-track recording machines, use them!  they can help you drastically
in achieving a somewhat professional product.

i will repeat the basic gist of this message in another week or two.

let's hear your plans!

...technically, indigo girls(r) is a trademark of sony, and indeed they also
own liknesses and copyright and things. so you have to ask their permission to
produce merchandise with their name and/or photo.

not that i care, but i am in a rather picky mood...

did you know that history of us, complicated girls, days of wine and roses,
and nothing to hide are all perfectly legal in their country of manufacture
(italy) and in fact, songwriting and performer royalties are paid on these
releases..and that you can import one copy for your own personal use if you're in britain
legally ??

but in the us they're not.

i just read great white wonders, a history of rock bootlegs...top stuff :):)

anyway, like i was saying, i'm feeling penickity, so deal :):)

subject:      t-shirt update

hi all!
with some of the recent mail concerning t-shirts, i thought i'd best get an
update out to all of you concerning my proposal of last week.

i got a lot of positive responses to my offer of working out a couple of
designs for list shirts and putting the designs out on the web and having
the list vote on them.
i received two offers (thanks sage and phil) for space on the web to post
the proposed designs. this way you can see what you're getting. and jon,
before you go ahead with printing any shirts and before you totally give up
your idea, why not wait until the sites are up and post your offerings
there too?

well after talking to the printer i work with, i have some prices. the
highest quality shirt available (7 oz, 100% natural cotton) with a 3-color
design on the front will cost right around $8.50 a piece. this is one of
those shirts that has the real nice seams and a collar that won't stretch
out. it is the heaviest t-shirt available. but if you like your shirts to
look stretched out and worn, it will take awhile to achieve that look with
this shirt (unless you send your laundry to my mother).

the other shirt that's available is your typical concert quality shirt.
weighing in at 5.4 oz, this 100% natural cotton shirt will do you best for
achieving the slacker look that is so popular. with a 3-color design on the
front this shirt will run us right around $6.50 a piece.

i know that many of you mentioned wanting something printed on the back and
stuff priinted on the sleeves. to print anything on the back, the minimum
charge is $1.50 a shirt. the same with printing on the sleeves. i just as
soon work everything into the front design, that way there's more
cohesiveness. but because this is a democracy, i will do a design that
includes something on the back and the list members can decide if it's
worth the extra $1.50 a shirt.

i've also received requests to include pictures of the girls in the design.
i received an offer for some promo shots (thanks rodney) any one else have
ones i can borrow as i work on some designs? i'll try to include one design
that has their images on it.

well that's about all for now. oh, the prices are based on an initial order
of 60 shirts so i will need firm commitements before going ahead with the
printing. prices do not include shipping, but i'll work that out later.
(hey dwayne, if this all works out, you'll stuff envelopes with me won't
you? and greg, if you're in the neighborhood, you're hired too).

ok, if you want me to proceed with some designs, you need to tell me as
that will be the most time consuming part of the project. please send me an
email message (private email, please) with yes as the subject. if i get at
least 50 yes votes, i'll start on the designs and start working with sage
and phil as to how the web page(s) will work.

i'll try to work in as many of the suggestions into the designs that have
been posted. for sure it will include the list's address (after all it is a
list shirt as opposed to a strict ig shirt) and it will include some lyrics
and ig related symbols of some kind. the rest you'll just have to trust me
on.

once again, if you all want me to go ahead and work on some designs, send
me a "yes" vote and this project can get going.

was thinking about the propasal that jcs songs get on indicated three --
how about we open it up to anything the girls have covered or sang on?
this could really mix the tape out -- the girls have covered much and
just think fo the all the cool people they have sung with -- kh, df,
gerard mchugh, all that good stuff..... anyway... what do y'all think?
anyone got any ideas about helping organize it?  phil

in-reply-to:  your message of tue, 19 sep 1995 14:44:32 -0400

to clarify:

i had proposed that we do a complete tribute to jcs, which meant doing all of
the songs from the cd.  i had not intended it to be part of indicated iii,
but i am not a tyrant.  i am not going to say that jcs songs should not be
part of indicated iii because i want them to be in the tribute tape.
however, i would prefer it if the jcs tribute happens.  it is less likely to,
if people are sending their songs to indicated iii.  there is really no point
in even doing a jcs tribute tape if jcs songs will also be part of indicated
iii.  it would be redundant.  i would like to see indicated iii contain
original ig songs and covers which they have done, but if the jcs tribute
tape is going to happen, i would like the jcs material to be exclusive to
this project.  the whole point is moot, if no one out there wants to do a jcs
tribute, which is the sense i am getting because of the lack of response.  so
whatever, anyway, nevermind.

peace pops

wait...bert? said indicated should be igs songs and songs they have covered??

that would be like having a beatles tribute with roll over beathoven on...i mean
there are so many songs that have ig connections, right?? could fill a tape of
songs that they played once at someones party...

i think 'loquat tree' on one of the tapes is an exception, as far as i know it
was written directly for the girls to sing, otherwise i don't think it should
be on...

in my humble opinion...stick to original a&em songs is better :):)

i just tried to arrange for a screening of the print of watershed on
my old campus, the university of southern california.  when i got in
touch with the college marketing dept. of sony music in new york, the
person i spoke to was shocked that i knew anything about the
watershed movie print.  she kept asking me how i found out about it.
i told her the internet, but she still couldn't believe it.

anyway, when i told her i wanted to act as a middleman to get that
print shown on campus, she told me she would get back to me.  a few
hours later, she said that the print was not going to the west coast
and she told me that the decision had been made minutes before our
second conversation, so she still couldn't believe that i knew it
about the plan to show the film on campuses.  i patiently explained
that someone here read the pressbook sent to a music store about the
marketing plans, so when she heard that, she was satisfied i wasn't
dealing with a company mole, but i guess not enough to say yes to a
watershed screening!!

lisa and linda, i tried.  stephen, i didn't mention any names.  the
rest of you, if you get a watershed screening on your campus, savior
it, enjoy it, and tell the rest of us what it was like!!!

subject:      gotta tend the earth...

hi there.

firstly, a confession. due to an inversal proportional relationship between
the amount of free time i have and the amount of my email, i have had to
sadly unsubscribe from the list. so what follows are my opinions on something
i have only heard second hand through friends, and not read in the original
post forms. if i have misinterpreted anything, i apologise now, and ask you
please not to flame me, but to show me what i may have got wrong. :)

i have been thinking about the whole "playing an ig song at the same time
everywhere" idea that someone here has proposed, and wondering why my gut
reaction to it was somewhat less than total enthusiasm.... and i guess it
comes down to this:

for me, the music of the indigo girls is about doing something, about change,
about love, about hope, about possibility. now, call me cynical if you like,
but i really don't see how a group of us, sitting in our bedrooms (or living
rooms, or lecture halls with walkmans on), listening to a song that we have
all heard probably hundreds of times before is going to change anything.

rather than listening to an ig song, why don't we all decide to do something
positive for our communities on a specific day - help out at a shelter; plant
a tree; visit someone in hospital; find out about native american groups in
your area;... actually doing something concrete, something that puts the
principles that the girls write about into action.

like the quote says.. "a refuge never grows..." (and i'm sure that y'all know
the rest!)

also, if i were amy or emily (heaven forbid) i think that i would be far more
impressed and favourable disposed to this list if i heard that list members
were planning a day where we all would do something, however small, to change
our own worlds and communities for the better than if i heard that we were all
planning on playing one of their songs simultaneously....

just a few thoughts... oh, and please, if you want to take this debate any
further, can you make sure to cc me anything you post to the list... i would
like to see some reactions. just please keep them friendly - it was at least
encouraging to hear that something like this song idea was being proposed,
instead of the list becoming endless flame wars and bitching.

fare y'all well

i was at that show too, and i have the same request! same conditions apply.
if you have the words to the chickenman monologue, but not the tape, that
would also be great.  you're right, the chickenman monologue was incredible.
definitely made the show.

i had the committement to work more musically.  but i think the changes i

date:           tuesday, may 23, 1995 17:49:47 edt attach:

----------------------------------------------------------------
the following is amy ray's chickenman stream of conciousness transcribed
verbatim from my boot of the athens oh show 4-12-95. (amy's birthday) it was
so cool i thought i'd share with y'all.  warning: it's long.

        "i wrote this song when i was thinking about all these spare parts
you see lying in the middle of the road.  i've been obsessed with dying ever
since i can remember.  realizing that i was existing for a short ammount of
time.. so when i decided to make traveling my way of life i was suprised.
cause when you're moving all the time you tend to run into things... alot.
you see a lot of things that other people are running into alot, which is a
very...interisting thing to see.  so this song kind of takes place-and were
going to start from georgia take this tour, and were gonna go up the eastern
seaboard get up into canada somewhere.  and were driving this big maroon ford
van.  and were gonna go from georgia and pass through all the southern states
and end up somewhere in the middle of texas...texas is sort of a wierd place,
you know? cause it's sort of the bastion of everything i've never believed
in...yeah there's these little bits of enlightenment just hanging around for
no reason.  it's really incredible because if you open your mind up to it,
it's a really cool place. so here we are, were sitting in houston were going
to play at this place and it's um, this bar and were real small, real small.
and were playing at this bar that's about half the size of this stage maybe.
and were going to sleep that night at this guy's house it's kinda like
this..brothel, sorta.  and it's getting harder and harder as this is going
on. i'm thinking ablut all these things. i was thinking anout this woman i
saw when i was running down the street in toronto and she was beat up by a
bunch of people and she was left layin' there and i walked right by
her...walked right by...walked right by.  movin'. gotta be somewhere i gotta
get somewhere, guys. i was running, you know, i gotta time my mile.   i can't
stop.  i can't stop. so i 'm thinking about this, thinking about this.  i was
thinking about-  i was in the middle of the desert this one time and this
family of prarie dogs was crossing the road and i thought "aww shit" 'cause i
couldn't slow down cause i was goin so fast.  and i just hit every single one
of them.  i thought, "this is unbelievable!"  i mean, how could i?  the law
of probability was totally against me.  they were runnin' as fast as they
could and -just- five!! one, two three, boom!! oh god, seriuos karma trouble.
so i'm in this car and i'm thinking about all these things. and were driving
and were driving and were driving and it;s kinda like, you cover your eyes
when you see something that's lying in the road and you go "oh it's just a
bag- a dead bag okay, that's cool,
i can handle that."  and  you see something else and it's like a tire.
okay, no problem, so you open your eyes cause you figure everything is going
to be this inanimate object and it's no big deal.  and then all of a sudden
you're standing in front of this dog with it's guts hanging out and you think
"aww shit!"  and you wanna close your eyes, close your eyes.  these are the
things you think about, these are the things i think about.  and these are
the things that are obsessing, obsessing.  were counting all these things and
putting numbers on everything.

agreed, but this is a list shirt, not an ig shirt and i have to believe
that that makes a big difference. and on top of it the shirts will not be
sold for any profit. will the shirt include images of a&e? i don't know.
can can design around that but i'm not sure that's what's wanted.

just wanted to let ya'll know that we have just gotten done doing a
significant upgrade to the setlists section of the lifeblood web site.

if you are not familiar with the site, it is dedicated to information on
indigo girls, and contains many articles, setlists, lyrics, and also links
to chords and music and other indigo girls sites.

i am in the process of going through the lyrics section (they were pulled
from different spots on the web), and standardizing the formatting and
correcting some mistakes that i have found.  hopefully this process will be
done in a couple of week, i will do another post to let you know when it is
finished.

if you have not checked out the site yet, it is at
http://www.hidwater.com/lifeblood

have fun :)

okay, so moving on, moving on.  okay, so we go to this flea market cause i'm
thinking at least theres one thing in the world that's gonna lift your
spirits when you have 10 dollars in your pockets and you go to a flea market
and buy something.  i know it's material it's very material but it's true.  i
mean you can be as spiritual as anybody in the whole world and you're still
gonna feel that way, i don't care what you say.  so we go in this flea market
and it's cool, it's cool.  and we come outta that an we go, and we see next
door and we see this big field layed out with all these tables and there's
stuff everywhere.  there's stuff all over these tables -it's like this
endless, endless tables! and i'm like, "this is amazing!  this yard sale on
the side of the highway!  i can't believe it this is so great!!" and i'm
looking through all this stuff,i'm thumbing through books, looking at the
cameras and the binoculars and the old motorcycle parts and bicycles and
hopefully the stratocasters(sp?) that are layin' in somebody's attic that i'm
gonna buy for five dollars.  and i'm thinking about all this stuff and i'm
thinking, okay, okay.  so this man walks out of this trailer and i look over
and i see him and i'm like (awed whisper) "wow!... look at this guy! he is
really cool looking!!" it just strikes me right in the heart.  he's got this
really cool long hair and it's matted and tangled and it's got bugs and dirt
and all this shit is all in his hair and he's really cool! and he's wearing
these old clothes and i'm thinking, "i am so middle class i am so middle
class i am so middle class!"  i'm looking at this guy and i'm thinking, "how
can i relate? i can't relate! i gotta relate! i gotta relate!" cause this is
someone i'm supposed to meet my whole life!  so, i'm gonna meet this guy and
i'm gonna talk to him and it's gonna be really great.  and i'm thinking, what
can i say? okay, what i'm going to say is...i'm going to buy something and
he's going to be really happy and this is really condisending, i'm thinking,
this is really arrogant, you know?  i'm gonna buy something from him and he's
gonna appreciate me so much that he's gonna want to talk to me.  how
materialistic can you get? what an asshole i am. so, i'm thinking this- i'm
gonna do it anyway, i don't care.  so i pick up this book and say, "how much
is this book?" and he says, "that's not for sale." i think, "oh, great." so i
pick up something else and i hand him that and i say, "how much is this?" and
says, "that's not for sale either." and i say,"well, what is for sale? what
can i buy?  i mean all this stuff, i mean, i really want to buy something
today, you know, burnin' a hole in my pocket." and he says, "you can't buy
anything, you're standing in my front yard." oh, great! i feel like a
complete jerk now.  i'm trespassing.  i'm rude.  i'm a white middle class
american girl.  yeah (chuckle) and i've offended this man, too.  and i'm
thinking, how can i make it up to him?  i've got these things inside my soul
that i've never told anyone and i'm gonna tell this guy.  i'm gonna make this
connection.  so, i'm thinking all these things that i'm gonna ask him and
tell him.  what do i want to say?  okay, so we're standing in the middle of
this field and were looking up into the sky-and did you ever think about
what's come before you, and what's coming after you?  and that's no big deal,
that's no big deal.  what i want to say is, i present myself as this peaceful
person all my life and what i really want to do is run down the street with a
machine gun and shoot all these assholes that are getting in my way! and when
i'm driving down the road and i see some guy with a bumper sticker and it
says something i don't believe in, what i really want to do-i mean i try to
be understanding-but what i really want to do is go faster and faster and ram
into the back of his car!!!!! and do you ever think about the animals you see
laying in the middle of the road that some jerk runs over without even
thinking about it-and their guts are hanging out! and they're howling and
they're barking and they're kicking and they're scratching, because you were
going 85 miles an hour when you should have been going 55!!!!!!!! and you
feel bad because what you want to do is slow down...slow down. and what i
want to do is i wanna go faster! i wanna go faster!  i wanna have sex in the
middle of nowhere!!! ( next line indecipherable due to crowd cheers)  i want
to be the worst person i could ever be in my whole life.  and i want to be
black. i want to be red, i want to be yellow!!!!!! but i just walk away
because it's too much. i was on the road to austin..."
                                      cool,eh? hope you enjoyed.
                                       sorry for any typos.  -di.

i think i'm missing something here...

umm, the point is, i'm english, and although legal in italy, these 'protection
gap' cd's are illegal in this country, but i can import one copy for my own
private usage legallly.

but if i were in the us, doing that would be illegal...

not that it's a big deal, but that's the way it is...

just catching up on old mail:
     the odds of ig recording acoustic guitars and vocals simultaneously
are slim-to-none. (unless they're looking for that particular ummm,
*thick* sound...) it's impossible to separate the tracks. you'll always
have guitars bleeding onto the vocal tracks, and vice versa. it's kind of
a drag when you're making a cheap record, too, to have to overdub all that
stuff.
     you all missed one heck of an atlanta music weekend in breckenridge
co with band de soleil and millan & kenzie. imagine michelle fronting a
7-piece band- 3 guitars, 3 vocals, drums, percussion and *2* basses, on
songs like hoochie coochie man, helter skelter, and i've never been to
heaven (but i've been to oklahoma), gloria, and a wad of other r&r
standards. hoowee!  big things for bds soon.
     here's some more m&k dates:

sept. 20 wed. charlotte nc/ dilworth brewery
sept. 21 thu. black mountain nc/ the grey eagle
sept. 22 fri. roanoke va/ confetti's
sept. 23 sat. fairfax va/ tt reynold's

in other news- we'll have a live record out in a few weeks. we're editing
it now, it rawks pretty good; and oct. 4 (mark yer calendars!) we're on a
bill with fleming & john in nashville, at the exit/in. wotta shew...
     off to nc...

together, amy laughing, etc... color, fill the whole frame photos.  i've been
thinking about trading with people, and maybe later in the year making up
posters.  these pictures are much better than any promo shots i've seen, and
i don't say this immodestly. the success of these photos has nothing to do
with me and everything to do with god. considering the weather.

        i'm intrigued by the chickenman speech that people keep

i got complicated girls today <g>. along with kristen hall's real life stuff
(signed) <another g>

complicated girls is nice. and the song titles are hilarious. maybe in a few
years it'll be worth millions of dollars, like that stamp they printed
upside-down, ya know? all those mistakes just make it more interesting :)
anyway, a couple of comments on it:

my copy cuts off reunion too. it's a shame because we miss amy's yelled "yes
we are!!!!" after "aren't we precious inside?"

and i don't think anyone's mentioned this yet, but track 9, the second lc is
screwed up in the beginning. it starts at "some long ago when we were taught,"
instead of at "i sit two stories above the street." the cd isn't skipping,
because i watched the counter. but you can hear the recording jump from the
intro right to the second verse.

and the photographs are interesting, mostly because the one on the inside that
actually appears twice (once in b&w opposite the disk, and once in color in
the fold out section) you know, the one of them playing at some outdoor fest.
anyway, that exact photo is one of the ones i bought at rainbow rocketorium.
so i have 5 x 7 of that exact shot. i think it's probably from newport in '94
maybe? does anyone remember what they were wearing last year? then at least we
could identify this one photo. well, guess that's all for now, since we're not
talking about potty's anymore. :)

subject:      where are you bert l.

hey bert!  i am new to this internet thing _ yes a "net virgin".  i wanted
to let you know that lift now has an e-mail address, so write me and let me
know how you are doing on the booking trail.  i got another date on nov. 19
in columbia, sc. at a club called, "clyde's".
i'm not sure if anyone posted this but wendy & skinhorse are going up to
virginia this weekend for 2 or 3 shows (yes i'm still plugging away on
bass).
they are still looking for someone so i'm filling in for now.
lift is rocking in atlanta and the cd sounds great!

get in touch soon!

        my reaction exactly.. but knowing how unflame free this list is i
was a little hesitant to post anything.. kirsti-- you said exactly what i
wanted said, and so eloquently too.. i don't know the girls at all, but
yes, kirsti is right, if we want to celebrate their music, lets listen to
it and see what is being said in it.. i don't think that they are saying
to just sit around and listen.. think  about it-- how could they write
the lyrics that they have if they just sat around and listened and didn't
take action..
        open up your yellow pages... look under community
organizations and pick one that sounds like it could be something that
supports what you do.. if you dont' have the time.. use some of your
internet time to e-mail a politician about a policy that you aren't in
favor of..

thank you again kirsti :))  *hugs*

i have photos from every year they have played newport.  asmuch as the
background looks right, it doesntmatch any year that i have.  amy's hair
was much shorter in '94 than the picture in the disc.

i agree.  i'm gonna order at least one of mine (for me) and some for
whoever else wants one.  i'll also order one from anybody else who
decides to print up a shirt :)  i'm not trying to be a monopoly, in
fact, i want as many ig t-shirts as i can get!  one for each day of
the month sounds good to me! :)

subject:      boys on the side

hi everyone!
i just went to blockbuster to purchase boys on the side.  the price they
quoted me was an amazing, get this, $100.00.  i asked why boys on the side
cost $100 when movies like forrest gump only cost $25.00 and they said it
was because the movie was not that popular --
has anyone else gone to purchase the movie (ok, dumb question, this is the
ig mailing list) so, the question should be, what prices have you been
paying, or have you been quoted for the movie?  should i purchase the movie
elsewhere, or is this a good price?
what have you run into out there in our great free enterprise system?
