x-to:         atlartists-outgoing@monsterbit.com

heya all.. it's me, your favorite person, posting about one of her favorite
bands..  in the past 3 days we have been treated to vld at the otherside,
and a three song set at the informal jam session hosted by our friends at
rainy day records...

lets start with the otherside... after a couple of shows at the scrap bar,
and the cotton club in mid month, and then a 2 week vacation, we were
treated to a 2 set show....    they played all the favorites-- ultra angel,
amsterdam, silver bullets, candi's song (oh my, i'm at a loss for the
title), freedom, the show stopping when you're ready, and some new songs,
that the band says are entitled "new".

rainy day records, and the bash..  i arrived at about 2.00 and caught bits
and pieces of various bands..  everyone seemed to be having a *great* time
there were more people in the store then i've seen in ages.. the crowd even
spilled out onto the sidewalk outside..

vld played a three song set, with guest iguana "merman" taking a ride on
bassist jan dykes's shoulder, and at one point, during the song ultra angel,
her head..  they played 3 songs, acoustic-unplugged..

a good time was had by all during all the bands that played..

vld will be playing tonight-- january 1-- at the now benefit hosted by
eddie's attic, and then again at the point on january 5th.. i'm not sure of
times, or what not-- call both places for more information...

if you don't have it-- check out vld's homepage @ http://monsterbit.com and
while you are there sign up on their internet mailing list and you'll
receive a monthly update from the band..

the new year is upon us, and i wish everyone all the best...  for the local
atlanta artists that we all support i hope that this year will bring them
many sucesses with the music that they play that brings the listeners so
much happiness..

may good things happen to everyone.

i have to agree about the version of 10,000 wars!!  the live version really
is outstanding!!  i also like kid fears when the audience sings the michael
stipe part.  before 1200 curfs came out, botby surely cured (well, helped
lessen) a few live fixes of mine.

i do too - i find myself using headphones a lot lately, and it's really
nice also because no one can complain about it being too loud. :) but
maybe also because of the fact that my speakers are broken... oh well. :)

well, i did say i was listening to amy songs a lot, some days ago...
don't get me wrong, i love emily's voice, but amy songs really get to me
with their power. although... i just had something of a change in my life
not long ago, and i find myself listening to emily more and more. guess
it just depends. :)

subject:      new year's at rdr
x-cc:         rainy@mindspring.com

hi everyone! we just pulled in from the drive back from atlanta. bonnie
(my so) and i went to rdr for new years. it was about 7 hours each way,
and we both feel it was worth every moment of it.

we arrived at rdr at about 2:30 and stayed there for a little while
before going to gyro wrap for dinner, then back to rdr.

some personal highlights:
josh joplin  (_great_ set, and _great_ cd)
chris ??? (the guy that lives in his car and told stories)
vld -- wow!
wendy bucklew
andrea (?) miracle
memory dean
and, of course, meeting and talking with amy (yes, amy ray) for a few
moments. got several pictures of her (not yet developed). that was really
great, but not because amy was forthcoming or personable or anything. she
was, to put it politely, shy; or to quote my so, a b*tch. i was very
cool when i spoke to her (after being introduced), and she was just blah.
and unwashed. yuck.

didn't hook up with any other list members (who was there?), but it was
nice to see perry, marsha, and jeff again. they're great people and made
us feel very welcome (jeff - i never did get that beer, though!)

in case any of you saw me, i was the long dark hair, goatee, glasses in
green shirt & jeans... was up in front for a while...

let me know your reactions to rdr's bash! i'll be making the pix
available on my website.

p.s. -- i'm still an amy person.

p.s.s. -- flames to nil:

i noticed that about the 200th time through. :) i don't recognize the
tune, though i'd know it if i heard it again... i also noticed a bunch of
other things in this train that you need to really listen for... like at
the beginning, it sounds like buzzing in the background and them saying a
bunch of names. who are laura, fredrick, matilda, etc.? and one more
thing... in the song itself, during the "here is a dancer... etc." part,
in the background there's a man's voice that sounds like a news broadcast
but i can't for the life of me figure out what it says. :)

subject:      new year's eve at rdr
x-cc:         adallo@aol.com

i attended the new years eve show at rdr.  i have to say that i was quite
disappointed in the behavior of several people while amy was in the store.  a
few examples.......someone came up to amy and asked if it would be o.k. if he
called his brother on the phone so amy could talk to him.  another was
pointing his camera at wendy bucklew on stage only to quickly move the camera
towards amy and snap the picture when he thought she wasn't looking.  (i'm
sure wendy appreciated that.)

it was so obvious to me (and to others as well, i'm sure) that she was trying
very hard to go unnoticed.  all she wanted to do was listen to the music like
everyone else, which is exactly what she tried to politely tell the guy who
wanted to call his brother.

also, a previous post made reference to her personal hygiene (or lack
thereof).  this, imo, is definitely wandering into the realm of too much
information (too much bad information, by the way.  i totally disagree with
that opinion, and i was standing about 2 feet from her for quite a while).
even if it was true, is it necessary to offer that information?  is it any
wonder that she was wasn't "forthcoming and personable"?  would you be if you
had to withstand that kind of scrutiny?

haven't we been listening??  "are they coming for us with cameras or guns?"
can't we have some respect for them especially on their own home turf?  i'm
not trying to imply that anyone there had any intent to harm in any way.  i
just think that in a forum like that, the woman deserves to be left alone.

applause!!  i've noticed that people can be well, downright awful in their
behavior...i noticed this at the vld release party...people coming up and
introducing themselves...no offense, but amy doesn't really care who we
are!  and if you can't deal with that, then you have tilted a bit more
towards the fanatic side of "fan"...the woman just wants to sit back and
enjoy music, something i think we can all identify with...

        somebody *please* talk about the music you heard in atlanta on
new year's eve...
        i'll start- a real highlight for us was having michael lorant (of
big fish ensemble) sit in on the early show at eddie's attic. we had a big
crowd for a 7:00 show, including several infants!
        anyway, michael played percussion and melodion and accordion on a
bunch of millan & kenzie songs, which was a gas. but m&k also backed him
up on a bfe song, "city of sin", off of their cd _lucky_. "city of sin"
features backing vocals by ig, which were covered true-to-form by rad and
dave of m&k. the parts worked amazingly well translated to male voices. a
fine, fine version of a great song, btw- dave mackenzie played guitar,
michael played accordion and guitar, john and rad played percussion, and i
played bass.
        i wish i'd heard more music at rdr, but we had no time...

subject:      objections to insults

i realize that the words "i am new to this list and should lurk a while before
posting but..."  have started many a controversial posting.  however on my very
first day on the indigo girls mailing list, the third post i received struck
such a sour note with me i felt compelled to respond.

the comments from the person who met amy ray on new year's eve as she was
attending an event as a spectator and not a performer surprised then upset me.
as i interpret that message, ms. ray was kind enough to acknowledge an
introduction to this person and pose for pictures.  however the author of this
message reports to us that our beloved indigo girl was...well the original terms
for her state of mind and hygeine needn't be repeated.  now i realize that
'stars' must be thankful to their fans, because we are the source of much of
their livelihood, but are we not adult enough to recognize that they too wish
for privacy and perhaps even have bad days?  be thankful she let you take
pictures (i'd be downright giddy) and be a bit more charitable about the second
part of the description.  perhaps she has been very busy composing songs for her
loyal fans to enjoy and she was really only "distracted" and possibly "rumpled".

subject:      rdr party _music_ review (nigc)

i am an occasional lister who signs on and off when college is off and on
respectively.  although there were apparently several listers at rdr for
new year's and people seemed to be having lots of fun, no one has offered
up any reviews of the music, really, the music was the best part!

...so i've written up my own run-down covering highlights of the afternoon
that still stick in my memory.  there are several artists who performed
whose names i cannot recall, but they all added to the afternoon.  i
apologize for not giving them all a mention, but i trust that y'all
will pitch in the details (and the many musicians) i miss. :)

jake - (the band formerly known as millan & kenzie) was the first group on
    stage that i recognized, and although they looked a little cramped with
    four fellows and a double bass on the small stage, they drew the
    crowd into their music and had them bouncing along to the songs in no
    time.  they are playing in washington, d.c., this friday and in
    raleigh, n.c. on saturday if anyone is up for more road tripping.  if
    you aren't able to  catch them live, their cd is worth a listen.


i was really looking forward to seeing kristen hall perform, but she was
fighting off bronchitis, so instead we had the good fortune of hearing...

hell n' ready - [kristen hall, guitar; julie clark, bass; simone simonton,
    lead vocal; becky ?last name?, accordian]  what a riot! :)  i got a
    kick out of this group because they played with a great sense of
    humor and looked like they were having loads of fun.  they covered the
    song "i'll love you forever" with simone adding the right touch of
    sarcasim to the chorus line "i'll love you for-ev-ah...what-ev-ah" :)


wendy bucklew - she borrowed a guitar from candi (of vld), who had borrowed
    it from her roommate, so she could play. :)  tuning was a bit tricky
    for everyone all day since it was several degrees warmer on stage than
    in the back room, but wendy bravely pushed through a few songs (most
    notably "heave, ho") despite the guitar's changing mood.  wendy's latest
    cd is "painting sidewalks" (get it! get it!) and her lyrics and melodies
    are certainly worth the road trip if you ever have the opportunity to
    see her live, just ask all those who saw her at the red light cafe
    with caroline aiken on sunday night - wahoo!


ride the wood - caroline aiken and moe marr ?sp? (who make up ride the
    wood) had a busy new year's eve, playing for at least three different
    audiences throughout the day.  they performed a few tunes that i had not
    heard before, showcasing their great guitar work.  caroline even knelt
    and bowed to moe and his guitar during one of his solos. :)  caroline's
    daughter, paige, came on stage to sing a cover of michelle malone's
    song "the greatest show on earth", making her the youngest talent among
    all the performers.  caroline has two cds at rdr (live bait & live at
    eddie's attic) and both are great, so check 'em out.


angela motter - she did come after all, and it was a treat.  she sang
    a soulful song called "mama" recounting some of the things that her
    mama had told her, even the things her "mama never did say."  she also
    covered a song that she had heard sinead o'conner cover (originally
    written by edna ?last name?) called "damn your eyes" - another
    gut-tugger.  angela announced that she is raising money to record a new
    cd, and she will be hosting a celebrity bowling benefit soon to boost
    her savings.  marsha and perry probably have details on that if you
    would like to pitch in on that effort.


shawn mullins & matthew kahler - having never seen them perform before,
    i was floored.  they were easily my favorite act of the afternoon.
    they played shawn's song "pandora" as well as a new (?) song of his
    that i'll call "hits" about a money-hungry record company executive.
    matthew wowed the audience with a cover of james taylor's song "money
    machine", and they also performed "buckdance."  i picked up their
    latest album jeff's last dance vol. ii, which is a live recording at
    eddie's attic.  another great cd for your collection...


david patterson - he played with two others whose names i missed (together
    they made up three-sevenths of an irish folk band :) ).  their music
    was instrumental only and it highlighted the skill of all three
    musicians as they played fast-paced irish jigs and reels.  the
    sophistication and technique of david on guitar (along with that of
    the violinist and mandolin player) were so impressive that they earned
    the first encore call of the afternoon.


don conoscenti - having returned home to atlanta after a year or so on the
    road, don shared some of the music which will be on his next record.
    (he will be recording at dede vogt's studio this spring.)  he played
    three or four songs including two that i'll call "accident" and
    "bambi" because i don't know their real names.  the second one was
    quite a popular tale about a group of deer who ganged up and took
    revenge on a hunter who had killed a 'bambi' with his truck. :)
       don also mentioned that he is helping kristian bush (solo artist as
    well as one-half of billy pilgrim) record an new album.  i left rdr
    to catch wendy bucklew and caroline aiken at the red light cafe
    before kristian had a chance to perform, but i look forward to hearing
    the new record.


i also was able to catch the now benefit at eddie's attic on new year's
day while i was in town.  it was good music and a good cause, so put this
annual benefit event on your calendar for next year if you are going to
atlanta.  we heard performances from jake, vld, uncle mark, don conesceti,
janet mcclaughlin ?sp?, and others whose names are lost in my tired memory.
i won't run through everyone, but because molly takes the time to keep
the list up to speed on this band, i thought i'd give it a short review...

lift -  [david patterson, guitar; molly bancroft, lead vocals & guitar;
    simone simonton, drums; julie clark, bass]  between songs, julie
    described the band as the "new kids on the block" in the atlanta
    music scene, but the experience of each of the seasoned musicians in
    the band came through for them, and they played well together.  david
    tore off some solos that left his guitar smoking and simone let loose
    on the drums during one song, prompting david to say, "you go, simone!"
    when they finished. :)  they only had time for a short set of about
    four songs, but i hope i see this group perform again soon - y'all,
    catch them live if you can.


many of the artists that played over the weekend are making it gig-to-gig,
relying on their own considerable talent and determination as well as the
support of folks who come to their shows and buy their music, so if
you have a few extra dollars to spend on some great music and invest in
the careers of these artists, buy their albums - you won't be disappointed.
(...and again, that's rainy day records at 1-800-636-6166 :) )


happy new year to all,

holmes

i just have one thing to say about something i read today.  if amy really
dislikes or thinks ill of computer users, then it must stem from
ignorance of the internet or computers in general.  but, do any of us
really have any evidence that she has a problem with 'us'?  when i was
working with the girls last summer, it was emily who said that she had
never used one and had no desire to.  i think that if it wasn't for amy,
there would be no web pages etc.  anyway, i just thought that if it's
true that she's turned off by computers, that she she ought to take some
of her own advice.  "respect what we don't understand.."

i used to be fanatical about seeing amy around town but after a while you
come to realize that she really is a normal human being. if we all were
fans of hers, we would respect her privacy nad try to understand the
hardships of being in the spotlight. i was at rdr on new years, saw amy,
stood relatively close, stole a few galnces, and enjoyed the music. that's
what it was all about. the music. i would occasionally listen in to one of
her short conversations with people and enjoy hearing her normal spaking
voice. very unique and actually very comforting. i admire, respect, and
love her as a musician and a person. she deserves the privacy.

actually, yes i do.  i met her and emily a couple of years ago in boulder co
and asked them how they felt about their online fans.  they both basically
said that the biggest problem that they have is their lack of privacy.  at
the time that i spoke to them, they weren't *really* out professionally and
there was alot of speculation about their sexual orientations.  as you can
imagine this bothered them a great deal.  at that time they asked me to pass
along a message: discussion about their music and shows is cool but their
private lives are just that, private.

to everyone who responded, and i think i can understand her music a little
better now.  however, all of the really controversial and thought-provoking
messages i received were sent only to me, and not posted.  i'm hoping that
some of you would be willing to post similar messages, because they were all
really interesting.  besides, it would be nice to talk about their music for a

   have m&k officially become jake? or was this just a wacky
   new year's eve stunt?   (chris?)

   (i might try to catch the jake show in dc if i can.)

just to state the obvious...i believe that while any but the most casual
ig fan could probably classify themselves as either an amy or emily person,
most can appreciate and experience the appeal of the other and the synergy
that the two create.

that being said, my perspective as an amy person is that emily expresses
very simple and mostly uninteresting ideas is very interesting ways...her
music and lyrics are very cerebral...well-written and well-crafted.  amy,
on the other hand, struggles with many more dimensions of life in her
material and presents it in a much more abstract way.  that's one of her
great appeals for me...and chickenman is the definitive amy song from
my perspective.

but emily shines in expressing emotions of love and tenderness and amy is
more dramatic and searches for answers to ethical questions in her writing...
last weekend, for purposes of remaining quiet while other-people-i-live-with-
were-still-in-bed, i watched the disney special without the sound.  i was an
education to just see the expressions on their faces as they sang...their
different personalities were very evident!

hi folks,

all the best for the new year to everyone.

some time ago someone posted the snail mail address for a company in
atlanta called ghost who sold ig bootleg videos and tapes. i can't remember
where i've put the address... does anyone have it? thanks in advance

finally.... i leave for the usa in a few days so i will have to unsubscribe
from the list tomorrow but i can still be contacted at this e-mail address.
it's been fun hanging around on the list for the last year... thanks to
everyone for making it such fun. i hope to see some of you at either
newport or new orleans. if jcs goes ahead in atlanta or if the ig's do
decide to put on a concert around the time of the olympics could someone
let me know... it would be much appreciated.

take care all

subject:      our demi-epic journey to atlanta

whew! well, i'm home. after about a 30 hour, 2000 mile round trip we're home
from new year's in atlanta. phil and i went down saturday, and spent 4 of the
most wonderful days of my life in atlanta. i'd never been there before, and
let me just tell you that everything you've ever heard about how fantastic the
people are, how great the music scene is, and how wonderful perry and marsha
are is true!!!! we arrived at rdr at noon on sunday, we staked out a really
great place to stand (that was phil and me standing behind the first section
of record cases in the middle of the store right in front of the stage), and
we literally did not move from that spot except for a few breif trips for
drinks until about 11:30 that night when the music ended. what an amazing day
of fun and music and meeting great people etc. there is just so much i could
say, and i don't even know where to start, and i don't really have time
anyway, so let me just give you a brief review of a _few_ of the artists who
really floated my boat. this is by no means all inclusive, and phil, if you
think of some names i'm forgetting, feel free to jump in any time:

milan & kenzie-now (yes officially) jake: what a great time. lotsa fun, and
"restarant man" kicks butt. listen closely for all the references to familiar
names.

caroline aiken: (what was the other guitarist's name?) amazing guitar work, no
disappointment there! they were funny too. they got down on their knees and
played specifically for the not so subtle bootlegger camped out on the floor
in front of the stage. and her daughter paige was a wonderful surprise who got
the biggest, most explosive applause of the day.

viva la diva: this was such a pleasant surprise for me. my musical tastes have
become pretty firmly intrenched in the folk/folk-rock area, and i never
expected to be able to get into a band like vld, but i was wrong!! they, and
the iguana, were great both at rdr and the now benefit. of course, it was
accoustic unplugged, but after hearing them that night i got perry to stick in
their greatest hits cd (at least i think is was that one) and i was just blown
away. the whole cd was fantastic, and i'm now in the process of bugging perry
to tell me when he gets the next shipment in, but "when you're ready" was the
one that left me sitting on the floor (literally) with my jaw hanging open,
and begging perry to let me just touch the one copy of the cd he had remaining
in the store. you get the idea that i liked the band? well, i did.

shawn mullins & matthew kahler (sp?): wow! their cover of j.t.'s "money
machine" brought the house down. phil should be the one to tell you more about
those two.

kristian bush: most of y'all had left by the time he played, and we got him to
play "insomniac" for us. it's a shame the place was so empty, cuz you really
missed something special if you weren't there. again, i'll leave further
comment on this one to phil.

josh joplin: a lot of fun.

chris....(oh damn, forgot the last name). he was hilarious with his story
about "now i know for sure i am a failure."

geez this list could go on forever.

david patterson and his band (what was the band's name? he's in so many.)
absolutely drop dead amazing musicianship. (and a really great guy too :)

don conescenti: ditto for what i just said about david. (and everyone's
favorite guest musician too. :)

adam dorfman: the first really impressive artist of the day. check him out.

hell 'n ready: *laugh* what a lot of fun they were.

ok, ok, my memory's starting to fail me, so i'll stop. just be assured that
the whole day was one of the most fantastic experiences of my life, and it was
worth every mile. for the obligatory igc, i'll mention amy. she was there. she
stood 5 feet away from us. i was extremely pleased. she left.

subject:      rdr and atlanta

woo woo.  lorinda and i drove for 15 hours to get there.  it is funny
that it only took us 12 to get back.
        i had some funny title that i was supposed to give as a preview
to lorinda's review, but i forgetted it.  sorry lorinda.
        while there actually were a few acts of the day that i  could
have done without (i can't believe that there is finally music from
atlanta thaty i don't like) almost everyone of the day was great.  the
first real super-set was millan & kenzie.  jake is a dumb name.  i'm dumb
too though so they can call themselves whatever they want.  restaurant
man had thge crowd bouncing.  chris still has a pony tail and rad is
looking more and more like a different person every time that i see them.
        shawn and matthew rawked my world.  they were the two biggest
reasons i wanted to go, actually the second and third, right behind
kristian bush...  money machine was wild.  matthew seemedc to be happier
than a clam.  i got to shake their hands woo woo.  get vol. 2 of jeff's
last dance. not that #1 is bad, but you should all have that by now.
        brain webb (of old river road) sang a piss-funny song about a guy
who wouldn't come out, but should  -- "don't the let clost door hit you
in the butt on your way out."  the whole place was laughing their asses off.
he was great.
        josh joplin sang a song about weeble-wobbles.  i have to get his
cd now.  he was one of the best people i had never heard before.
        chris chandler was sooo funny.  he just rambled about sitting in
a graveyard in the airport runway and about living in his car and all
sorts of stuff.  really an incredible performer.
        kristian bush played dead last (after playing in an incredible
trio with don conoscenti and peirce pettis) and was great.  i have waited
fo a long time to see him play up close (it wasnt' quite the same seeing
bp form two miles away back in the masses at a me show, eh?).  the crowd
had to beg for him to play insomniac, but he did, eh?
        my _personal_ highlight of the whole damn day was that adam
dorfman let me borrow his guitar and i, no lie, closed out the music on
new years at rdr.  i even conninced kristian b to listen.  he said i
sounded like edwin mccain.  it is a shame i have no idea what edwin
sounds like.  i think that was a compliment.  i brok a string on adams
guitar.  kristen hall and i were the only two to break strings all day.
i'm not sure if that means anything.
        other acts i didn't review that i loved were adam dorfman, hell
n' ready, julie goldman, the lady who sang about mosquitos, and the lady
who played autoharp.  woo woo.
        then almost everywone left.  it think it was down to perry,
marsha, jeff, don con, dave paterson, julia (who didn't want her name
mentioned on the interent), adam dorfman, his sister and friend, and
lorinda and i for the magic moment of newyears.  i havent had tha tmuch
beer and champagne in a long time.  then perry and marsha took us out for
breakfast at the waffle house.  they were soo nice to us.  thank you
perry and marsha, eh?  1-800-636-6166.  thank them with your credit cards
everybody.
        i played at eddie's open mic on tuesday nite too.  i didn't win,,
but i had a blast there too.
        take care y'all and happy new year!  phil

subject:      new project

and for the next subject:

phil and i had 13 or 14 hours on the way home to think of things to say. (my
damn stereo broke, and i was forced to carry on a conversation.) ha! just
kidding phil!!! here's one of the things we came up with:

now i admit i've taken a couple of _really_ stupid, embarrassing (to me),
pointless photographs of the girls. so we thought we'd set up the first
official "stupid pointless indigo girls pictures web page."

have you ever:

taken a picture of amy or emily's _back_?  (guilty)

taken a picture that was so fuzzy, out of focus or dark that you couldn't tell
it was a _person_ let alone amy ray, but kept it anyway just cuz you _know_
it's amy ray?

taken a picture of a piece of empty ground where they were _just_ standing?

taken a picture that just shows the top of emily's head?

taken a picture of russel carter's door?

taken a picture of the peach in south carolina just cuz you know that it's amy
and emily's road manager's favorite sight in sc? (guilty again)

taken a picture of a sign just because it had the word "amy" or "emily" or
"indigo" etc. in it?

taken a picture of a crowd of people because you swore one of them was in
there somewhere?

taken a picture of the back stage door?

taken a picture of their feet?

ok, you get the picture...um, no pun intended. if you have, in a moment of
weakness, done one of the above, or something similar, and you want to
contribute your photograph, we'd like to hear from you. if your picture is,
or can be made available on a web site, send instructions on how to retrieve
it to phil norman (pnorman@eclair.roanoke.edu). if you want to just send a
photo via snail mail, you can send it to me at:

lorinda wright
725 a northampton st.
hellertown, pa 18055

and i'll make it available to phil. this could be highly amusing, so if you
have some good ones, we'd like to see them. and please, nothing personal!
we're _not_ interested in their houses, or home adresses, or cars, or relatives
or anything like that!

subject:      re: new year's eve at rdr

>applause!!  i've noticed that people can be well, downright awful in their
>behavior...i noticed this at the vld release party...people coming up and
>introducing themselves...no offense, but amy doesn't really care who we
>are!  and if you can't deal with that, then you have tilted a bit more
>towards the fanatic side of "fan"...the woman just wants to sit back and
>enjoy music, something i think we can all identify with...

just a couple of comments emerging out of many years of experience in ig
groupie-dom:

first comment

to be fair...i don't think that there is a true amy person on the planet who
wouldn't get a buzz out of being in the same room with her.  we've all
been there...haven't we?  i mean, there she is...the moment pregnant with
possibility...your judgment clouded, you convince yourself that you'll
take the risk...and she is polite and very tolerant and quite obviously
and quite understandably could care less...

i remember the first time i heard her chickenman stream-of-consciousness...
about how she meets this man at the side of the road who she imagines to
have all the answers for her if she can just make the connection and become
real to him...and just say what's on her mind...and maybe he can comfort
her and impart some profound wisdom...or just listen and understand...and
it doesn't happen for her...and she doesn't know what to say to him...and
she just can't get it out...she walks away not having said anything that
she meant to say and feeling stupid and intrusive and insensitive...

i remember hearing this and thinking "she has been at that same place..."

live and learn :)

second comment

i am constantly dumbfounded at the kind of information that amy floats
out there regarding non-public aspects of her life.  i mean, it seems
like she sets a high priority on living a relatively down-to-earth
existence...she doesn't isolate herself in a life that is inaccessible
to most fans...so why if she doesn't want fans in her face all the time
(which is clearly the case) does she volunteer for public consumption
information like her favorite health food store or her favorite juice
bar?  i look at this stuff and i think she must be absolutely insane.

be just and fear nothing :)

subject:      stuff (a bit of igc i guess)

hi everybody.

i've been lurking far too long on this list...a letter here, a letter there.

so, here's all of my meaningless thoughts from, say, the past few months.

1.  i'm so glad amy and emily are getting into the email thing.  very
cool of them.  they could have stayed hard-headed about it and never
gotten a chance to get online at least once...it *is* an experience... :)

2.  i wish my dogs howled when i listened to ig or anything for that
matter.  i have two french bulldogs (best doggies in the whole wide
world) and they have absolutely no interest in music...well, except my
french horn...i am playing a ton now before grad school and they can't
figure out where all that noise is coming fun....quite cute.  but, sadly,
no interest in ig....<grin>

3.  i wish "sqeaky" would be released on a real album.  i have a couple
boots of it, and well, i wish i had a real one, that's all.  or a copy of
the nashville show from 1992, now that was awesome....kind of sentimental
to me.  what a fabulous song with lots of guts.....wow.

4.  can you believe there's a concealed weapon law in texas???  nuff said.

5.  i was sick on new year's and didn't get to run down to atlanta.  man,
if i don't get sick in the most ig related times of my life...i mean, i've
missed about 10 concerts from being sick!!!!!!!!!!!  ack!  there were so
many groups down there that i wanted to see and hear...what a bummer.

6.  another pet peeve:  when you drive like 10 hours to see a band for
the first time after listening to their music for years like, say,
ejsoc and they broke up the night before!!!  how friggin' lucky am i!!
see what i mean!!    :)  hehehh....


okay.  enough for now.  just some thoughts..

oh, and would it really matter what cd you took on the island....do you
have batteries???  hehhh, just jokin around.  but seriously, i wouldn't
care which cd i had, as long as i had one....

oh, and i'm listening to 1200c version of this train, and lifeblood off
of my first bootleg.....boy, if i was only about five years older...maybe
i would have been down in atlanta at the beginning of it all....would
have been cool.  i guess i wished i was older than i was my whole life,
and one day, i'm gonna be begging to be young again....


:)

well, take care everybody.  glad to see everyone is safe, and doing fine.

emily

<<<most wonderful days of my life in atlanta. i'd never been there
before, and
let me just tell you that everything you've ever heard about how
fantastic the
people are, how great the music scene is, and how wonderful perry and
marsha
are is true!!!!>>

i have to 2nd this of course.  i made the obligatory pilgrimmage
(actually 2) to rainy day and perry, marsha & jeff were really nice
people.  marsha mentioned the red light aiken/bucklew thing, so we
went there for new years.  unfortunately i only stayed at rdr for
maybe 20 minutes near 2-2:30.  luckily i had seen vld the night
before.  (everybody - get their cd.)  still, wish i saw them, but i
understood it would've meant standing there for hrs, and i just
didn't wanna.  i do wish i saw hell 'n ready though.

oh, lorinda --

<< we arrived at rdr at noon on sunday, we staked out a really
great place to stand (that was phil and me standing behind the first
section
of record cases in the middle of the store right in front of the
stage), and
we literally did not move from that spot except for a few breif trips
for
drinks until about 11:30 that night when the music ended.>>

lorinda, somehow i knew you'd be right up front <smile>.  and
speaking of adam dorfman, i liked him too.  he was the only one i saw
before left.  somebody said intermission...so...since by friend had
abandoned me for the afternoon...i was kinda chicken to "mingle" all
by my little self....anyway...i was the girl w/black shirt &
unhygienic-looking bomber sorta jacket.  stepped up front to look for
listers & then chickened out....anyway.  that was me <laugh>.   i
took off then.

we had a great time though at red light later.  i, um, have some time
unaccounted for, if you know what i mean.  hope i didn't offend
anybody there.  had a great time....was pleased to learn when i came
back that that michelle malone song page sang "greatest show on
earth" is on caroline aiken's cd, live bait.  (if i couldn't see
michelle malone in atlanta, believe me, hearing an mm song sung by
page was really a nice surprise.)   oh, btw, it looks like my cd is
signed & numbered (#1357).  gee, talk about value added.

i have only good things to say about the musicians in atlanta.  an
example is that i got the 2 cassettes i sent for from michelle malone
by priority mail before christmas (one was a christmas tape).  the
authorized bootleg tape came w/a handwritten note (in a hurried
scrawl, but legible nonetheless).  so w/michelle being out of town
around the dec. holidays, i did appreciate her taking the time to
send this stuff out....that's the impression i have of atlanta
musicians....they like ta rock, and they're geniuinely nice people.
yep, got me a white bds shirt at rdr (all they had at the show in
bloomington was small).  yeah right...or should i say "bullsh*t!"?

i have more to say, but i gotta go to class so i can get a real job...
