subject:      getting along, among other things...

hey everyone!!!

i rarely post to everyone, but i am new to the list and find it very
disturbing to find us arguing over things that are not related to the
ig.  i am sure we could all be explicating lyrics or something and having
a good old time at arguing about that.  if the only reason one is on this
list is for concert info, then maybe you don't belong here...i feel that
is more about what van doren, a philosopher, taught about: "sharing
allegories".  educating each other through sharing our lives and
experiences to reach out and lend each other a hand, making both
ourselves and others stronger.  maybe i'm just out on a limb by myself
here, and if i am, please let me know.  but sharing our lives is
important.  how else can we find peace among a nation of so many without
trying on someone else's shoes.  i will close with a favorite non ig song
of mine....

"try to see it my way,
do we have to keep on fighting til we can't go on.
try to see it your way,
or run the risk of knowing that our love may soon be gone?
we can work it out,
we can work it out.

life is very short, and there's no time
for fussing and fighting my friends."

                --john lennon and paul mccartney
                        performed by none other than...the beatles

love you all,
working it out together...

i'm out here listening for your call,
i'll be here if you'll be there...

subject:      re: new compilation cd w/ig

just fyi, wanted to let you all know that our radio station received today in
the mail a new compilation cd that includes the indigo girls.  it is called
"siren song - a celebration of women in music" and contains tracks from
celine dion, des'ree, cyndi lauper, nicky holland, beverley craven, sade,
basia, gloria estefan, jennifer rush, and "closer to fine" by the indigo
girls.  obviously, it's an all-epic recording artists compilation.

on the liner notes/booklet under "indigo girls" it reads as follows:  "they
may have moved from the coffeehouses of atlanta to sold-out concerts for up
to 20,000 ecstatic fans, but amy ray and emily saliers have held fast to
their unique vision of down-home spirituality and human liberation.  "closer
to fine", from the indigos' 1989 self-titled epic label debut, became a
concert favorite and a mid-charting pop hit; it also led to a grammy award
for indigo girls as best contemporary folk recording."
not sure what the exact release date is/was, but this cd will be/is
commercially available.  nothing rare or particularly collectible on here,
but for those who are completists or are keeping detailed discographies, i
thought you'd like to know!

oh dear, are we fighting again? i have been unsubscribed for a week or
two and am just now returning and i just thought i'd tell y'all that
i think it's funny that people are fighting again. (the more
things change...or something like that.)

well, here's the interesting thing i learned while i was away from the
list:  (kinda like "what i did over summer vacation" eh?)
a nice young man from the wonder stuff list read me rambling about ig,
and said, so what do you think of the wonder stuff's cover of ctf? and
*then* he asked did i know that a & e asked the wonder stuff fiddler
player to play with them on that song.

wow! do they know each other? and hang out ever? ever since i heard the
ctf cover, i realized i would love to her ig do "caught in my shadow" or
"here comes everyone" or about a million other wonder stuff covers.

their cover of closer to fine was the theme of my life the past two
weeks...most people i talk to either 1)don't listen to ig 2)have never
heard of the wonder stuff 3)don't know a cover of closer to fine exists
4)don't know the song closer to fine exists or 5)some combibation of the
above. but in the past few weeks, i have talked to a good eight or nine
people about this very topic.     veeeeerrrrrrrry interesting.....

well, a friend of mine taught me to love the violins in the background of
ghost.  also in ghost (obviously my favorite song) i love the harmony
when they sing "free" in the line "can you hear it? a cry to be freeeeeee".

i could go on forever about this thread.  there are so many lines which
remind me of people....one in particular....ok, just that one person and
no one else.....and that makes every phrase/line/word/melody all the more
special.

subject:      thought of the day...

deb sent me some ig tapes and i've just heard one of the coolest
songs ever...the ig cover of 'weakness in me'.  i've only known this
song by joan armatrading (did she write it?).  anyway, it's always
been one of my favorite songs of all time and to now hear it by
ig...well i'm in heaven.  i was mesmorised throughout the whole
song...it has such power.  everyday i listen to ig songs and yet the
power, emotion, passion, meaning and strength of their words and
music never lessens.  i don't think there's another band in the
entire world who are always refreshing...i'm honored to be a fan and
i'm proud to hold my admiration for them so high.

anyway...that's my thought of the day!

love helene

hi...

since noone has bid on this stuff (apparently everyone wants to
place the last bid), i am going to sell it for set prices instead.
if it still doesn't sell, expect to see an ad in goldmine.

for those of you who are not familiar with "promo" items:  a promo
is a non-retail release.  these are not available at tower, and never
were.  many of them contain interviews and live music that is not
available on any of the retail releases.

>i really enjoy ferron's music.  she's been around for a while (like a
>couple of decades) and has several albums out. _ phantom center_ is her
>most recent (columbia house records just got it--and the ig double cd too).

technically, _phantom center_ is not at all ferron's most recent.  it is a
re-issue and was originally released in 1990.  i understand that the
original (the one i have) is out of print.  which brings up a question i
asked a long time ago that was never answered (probably because it has
nothing to do with ice cream or m&ms and can't really spark any controversy)
- is the version of 'stand up' on the new release of pc (which i don't have
and have not heard) a new one?  i swear that a&e aren't on my copy.  they
definitely don't get credit.

can someone who has the new one try to determine if su is re-recorded.
like, is there a different 'p' date for that one?  please? :)  if no one
helps me, i am going to have to force deb to buy the new one so i can hear
it.  then she might be mad at y'all.  :-)

as far as ferron goes, by the way, she is a songwriter that emily envies
almost as much as joni.  and i completely understand why.  some of the most
powerful, insightful songs i have ever heard on ferron's last cd, _driver_.
when i saw her (for the third time :) in madison last year, she said that
the song "cactus" summed up everything she knew about life.  and i must say
the song has a lot to say.  i definitely recommend checking out this cd.

oh, and my favorites off pc are "sunken city" (despite everything, dave) and
"white wing mercy".

subject:      this list is jonesing in a major way

i think i have figured out why everone is so irritable lately.  we are all
going through a serious case of ig withdrawl and we are taking it out on each
other.  as with addictions to certain substances, like alcohol, tobacco, or
cocaine, the withdrawl period is probably the toughest to make it through,
and silly platitudes like "can't we all just get along", "give peace a
chance", or "don't worry, be happy" are no substitute for a quick, satisfying
ig fix.  when it comes down to it, as wonderful as their recorded music is,
even something like 1200 curfews doesn't provide the same kind of emotional
satisfaction that their live performance does.  and knowing that you probably
aren't going to see them live for at least a year, unless you can make it to
one of their special shows this year, doesn't help matters at all.  thus, we
need to do something to help each other get through these very hard times.
the existence of a list like this helps in some ways, but makes it worse in
other ways.  it helps in that it is a kind of support group where manic fans
like ourselves have a place to vent our feelings and frustrations and get
feedback from people who, although we don't know them too well, there is a
certain undescribable bond and trust that exists that allows us to say things
that we normally wouldn't to complete strangers.  then again, like my now
famous ex-t-shirt says, "there are no stranger here  only friends you haven't
met yet."  the problematic part is that there are those of us who are
completely fed up with the inane chatter that clogs up their mailboxes like
alfredo sauce cloogs arteries.  it is one thing if you are a newbie.  anyone
who comes here deserves a few weeks to get their feet wet so to speak, and if
they splash some of us while doing it, we have to be mature enough to deal
with it.  however, after a while, you need to get a clue and show a little
restraint.  consideration is the name of the game here.  anyway, i think we
all need to make the most out of this little list thing that we have.  maybe
a group project would give us all a chance to work together, get to know one
another, give this list some direction (which it really needs), and get us
through the next year until we actually have something ig-related to talk
about, like a new album and a tour.

if anybody has any ideas about something we can do on the list as a group,
please post them.  i have had a few ideas in the past, but there was very
little response.  i will post them again to see if there is any interest.

1.  get ben & jerry's to name an ice cream flavor after amy and emily.  we
need to decide on a name, pick out the ingredients, and then flood b&j's with
requests.

2.  i wanted to put together a jcs tribute tape with listmemebers performing
the songs in groups, but i have yet to get a hold of the sheet music, and
without it, this would be very hard to do, unless we wanted to do the entire
thing a capella, which would be lots of fun, but would sound really bad.
then again, with me singing pilate's dream, it would sound pretty bad anyway.
does anybody have any ideas regarding this?

3.  i still am interested in putting together a watershed-like videotape, but
from the fan's point of view.  i need people to send me videotape footage of
them, either individually or with a group, talking about ig, the music, and
anything related to it, and performing their songs.  i would like to get as
many people as possible to submit tapes, so their can be as wide a variety of
personalities as possible.  if enough people are interested in doing this, i
will post my mailing address, and you can start sending me videotapes.

4.  i know this is going to sound really weird, but it is just an idea, and
probably a stupid one at that, but here goes.  my greatest joy in life would
be to meet a woman who loves ig as much as i do, fall in love, and spend the
rest of my life with her.  so far, this hasn't happened.  while i have made
some wonderful friendshipsd since i started listening to ig and going to
their shows, the love of my life has yet to appear.  i am sure there are
other men and women here who are single and are looking for that special
someone in their life, and what a bonus it would be if that person could be
as big an ig as they were, so you could be as manic a fan as you wanted to be
and didn't have to be afraid of what the other person thought.  thus, my idea
is to use this list like the personals page in the newspaper, where we could
possibly meet other ig fans in our respective areas, get to know one another,
form friendships, and possibly something greater along the way.  again, this
is just an idea, and admittedly, pretty weird.  that being the case, if you
are not interested in participating in this idea, please ignore it.  i do not
feel like getting hundreds of messages telling me how stupid this idea is,
when i have already figured that out.  since the other ideas are somewhat
more realistic and sensible, i welcome your input, whether it is positive or
negative.  thanks for reading this far and have a nice day.


let it grow

yup...

as far as i know, apart from about three tracks (that are on
1200 curfews and the cover tape) not even dubs are this are
around (if there are i _need_ one...)

i guess at the moment it's non-availability only adds to its
rarity, although if someone were to buy a copy and then
pirate it onto cd or cd-r, then the value would go down
dramatically as there'd be less demand...

(it was a tape, wasn't it??)

i think this is a swell idea. on another list i am on we occasionally
send out a survey with both serious and silly questions. this has really
helped us get to know each other a little better. (also who does and does
not have a sense of humor!)

whattya think?

hugs,
paulal

subject:      a beautiful poem mentioning amy ray

hi y'all,

          i just wanted to share this with y'all.  about a year ago,
my best friend bob (who is a huge ig fan and introduced me to them)
showed me this poem.  he had written it in the summer of '94, after a
night of roaming the town with me.  we played mini-golf and drove
around listening to ig on my radio.  i don't have a cassette player
in my car, so i had to haul around this junky radio.  i guess this
night affected him profoundly, judging from the poem.  he hid it from
me for a while before he got the courage to show it to me.  i love
it, and i think he's going to make an excellent writer someday.
anyway, enough with the explanations...here's the poem.  oh, and if
amy happens to be reading this,  this one's for you! :)

            don't tell shannon i wrote this

            every night after night shannon takes off her rings
            ready to scrape and disinfect the dishes
            poised delicately in the sink
            precariously stuck in their own muck
            she dances with those dishes around the curves of the
       words,
            "intense  in need  in pain  in love"
            that's what amy sang, the night
            shannon & i drove out and contemplated life over
       milkshakes
            in her silver station wagon
            i dug my feet into a comfortable position among
            the cigarette butts on the floor-
            i held the radio in my lap and nearly cried
            listening to "blood and fire" amy sang to us
                             (baby hold me now)
            and everything felt beautiful that night
            the miniature golf course, the gauge that said
            we were almost out of gas in the middle of nowhere
            we felt beautiful
            like drifters- with a destination
            like drifters
            but shannon wanted to be a doctor and i wanted to be
            starving
            -drifters with a place to go
                                     -r.christian luka (c.1994)
       well, that's it.  hope no one minded the long post.  thanks. :)

                                peace and bless you,
                                shannon shevock (yamaha)

subject:      list suggestions

before i get flamed again, i'd like to make a suggestion.  would
it be possible for the list owner to add a second list, say
indigo-girls-social, where many of the "social, nigc" items can be
posted.  another mailing list i'm on is set up this way, and it has
worked out well for those people on it.  that way, those of you who
choose to be on the social list can talk about current movies/poetry,
etc, and still have a common bond with everyone else on the list.
and those who chose to stay on the original indigo-girls list would
still be able to talk about them there.

and let me make opinion clear:  i'm not against nigc posting.  it
just may be better suited for a different list.  things like
kristen hall's remarks were mostly nigc, but there is a relevance
to the girls, and should have been posted here.  i was glad it was.

from my last post about the ice-cream flavors,  people asked who i was
and why did i feel the need to clean up the list.  well, ideally, this
list would be about the indigo-girls, and things related to them.
i'm just trying to reach that ideal.

and one more thing i could never quite figure out; why is there a
need to discuss something.  if there's nothing to discuss, let it
go for a day.  posting for the sake of posting doesn't make much
sense to me.

so now instead of everyone posting the name of their pets and their favorite
flavor of ice cream to the ig list, they're all going to be posting personals?  why am i thinking this is not such a great idea?

subject:      am i allowed to ask this? (fwd)

hey y'all.  i think i sent this yesterday, but am not sure, so here it
is again...

someone mentioned something about amy ray wanting to spend time with
"cooper", is that cooper seay from viva la diva?  are they, like, a
thing?  not related to their realtionship: what else have ig done with
viva la diva?  i have vld best of album and amy sings background on a
song, as well as jane s. playing cello, did cooper ever sing with ig?
the name sounds more familiar that just seeing it on the vld album.
one thing that's kind of funny about the whole thing... the two groups
are so different sounding!  its like beastie boys covering a john denver
song.  (you get the picture...)  well, if anyone has any comments on
this, i'm just curious, not looking to spread evil rumors or anything...
later, mandy

good posting! anyway, here are my ideas.
1. galilious- a blend of strawberry and chocolate ice cream swirled.
2. i think a jcs tribute is a great idea. if your not up for singing
"pilates dream" i will. it's the only baritone part in the whole damn
show. then again i could always transpose "heaven on their minds" down a
bit.
well there are my bids. talk to ya soon,

        probably just edging it's way to the top is another emily moment
(most my moments are emily, but not all...).  land of canaan's "oh,
sweetheart" makes me absolutely dissolve.  the debut version, not the
strange fire version.  it's fun to watch on the uptown lounge video.  i
have lot's of moments in that thing.

        does anyone else pause their vcr when watching uptown lounge or
watershed to get the "perfect" indigo girls shot?  just wondering.

hey lorindigo...i'll be getting back to you with that second verse....

friendly rain drenched californians (at least northern ones...),
        i've received about 17-18 responses to the ca list party, all
favorable.  there's one or two folks who also responded from out of state
(or actually...country) with plans to visit in summer.  i'm going to
collect the addresses and get individual info going most likely tomorrow.
        shameless plug:  the duo i'm part of (we decided on a name change,
for those who remember...no longer "mental splooge"...now between sun and
moon) will be playing cal state sacramento next tues (feb6th) from 7pm to
930pm.  anyone in the area or surrounding areas interested, please email
me.  it's our one year anniversary and we're doing "fugitive" as our one
ig cover.  the most i can say is that it sounds...interesting.  i hate
singing with another guy because that means i'm relegated to sing emily's
lines and she's pretty much out of my stratosphere vocal wise.  aaaahhhhhh!

wow!

i got *many* responses about the ferron "stand up" re-recording.  where were
you all the first time i asked??!   :-)  actually, to be fair, i just
realized that i asked right after the cd was released.   back then, i am
sure that few people actually had it.  i must give public thanks to cindy,
who discovered that su is "the only song on phantom center that is recorded
somewhere other than el dorado studios in la.  su was recorded at the purple
dragon recording in atlanta, ga."

this explains how a, e, jerry, and sara got on it.

i also had a few people that i need to buy the new one.  so i may have to do
that, just for that one song, 'cause a&e are worth it.  :-)

as far as ben & jerry's ice cream, i would definitely have to go with half
strawberry, half black beans and rice.  :-)

hmmmm. . . how 'bout on botby, in "you & me of the 10,000 wars" -- when amy
comes in with "is there ever anything else that makes us take our different
sides" -- the way her voice just kind of whacks that "ever"?  breaks my heart
in a good way every time. . . well, you know what i mean.

mmmm. . . or just the phrase, "i see a warrior/barefoot and dancing/with
tears of pain and beauty/ and all of this is true/for you," in "keeper of my
heart"?  actually, i guess it's that whole song. . .

and one of my favourite emily moments -- "my heart the red sun/your heart the
moon clouded" in "mystery."

well.  ::grins:: methinks i like this thread just a leeeeeeetle too much!

emily sings "as brilliant as a star..."  "brilliant" absolutely _soars_
followed by this incredibly cute sad scratchy note on "star."  (big grin)

strange--that's never been my interpretation.  i think the song is about
death, an interpretation of death as another step on a very long
journey.  i think it's about holding tight to the things one has learned
so far, "hold on tight, the night has come, fasten up your earthly
burdens, you have just begun."  the quickness of the boundary between
life and death "in the wink of an eye i saw you bleed, thunder i could
hear you scream" the experience of watching someone cross that boundary
"solitude the air i breathe, open eyed and fast asleep."  a visit across
that boundary brought back for us to hear, footstepping, falling into the
next piece of the journey.  exhaustion at the end of earth, not to be
afraid of the next one.  anyway, that's my stream-of-consciousness
interp.  hope you like it!

okay, i'm finally gonna spill about everything so get ready...
-my fav. ig tidbit would have to be on 1200 curfews in i don't wanna know when
amy sings "i don't care anymore" while emily starts in with "i don't care"
and then faintly in the back michelle (i'm guessing it's her but let's not
start a big debate about whether it was infact mm or phyllis diller) pipes ib
with "i don't care either!".  it's too cute.
-my fav. part oof the galileo video if not all of wathershed is when there's
a close up of amy lipsynching along and then she starts doing emily's part,
does a tiny "oops" and then they both start laughing.  it just makes me smile.
-i'm not a big ice cream fan.  sorry,

that's it. have a wonderful whatever and yeah...

hi everyone! i'm new to the list and thrilled that an ig
discussion/mailing list (not to mention the ig home pages and other
things on the internet) exists! wow! i look forward to chattin' with ya.

last night i went to the "take back the night" rally for rape &
domestic violence awareness week, which was held in a central plaza of the
u of florida/gainesville campus. the rally included several clotheslines
with colorful t-shirts handpainted and embroidered by survivors of rape,
incest, and domestic violence (as well as some shirts that were made in
memory of women killed by this violence). as i stood there with many
others, reading the sentiments on the shirts and nearly moved to tears,
"power of two" began playing softly in the background. it was so moving.
the rally organizers were playing songs from cds, and that was the first
song they chose to play.

anyway, just thought i'd share that.

have a happy weekend....

christine

p.s. i promise to use acronyms in the future (i.e. "po2")....sometimes,
though, things mean more to me when they're spelled out.

subject:      nigc- a brief hello and intro

hello everybody!

i've been on the list for a couple months now, and thought i would finally
introduce myself to y'all. i go to university of wisconsin-madison,
majoring in journalism. i think this list has been one the greatest things
that has ever happened to me at school. i love hearing about all your
phenomenol experiences and interpretations with the ig and their
music...it's really great to finally be able to share the beauty and power
of their music with so many others.

i must say that i have not yet had the experience of an ig concert, but
desperately hope to someday...till then, i guess i'll keep on dreaming :)

thanks for all the fun!

amanda

well, i'm icebound here in texas, so i'll chip in to this fun thread, cause
they just cancelled friday classes (i love how this state flips out when a
little ice gets on to the ground!) and it'd be a sin to actually be studying
right now....

emily oooooh moment:
the way she sings the word "poems" during 'tangled up in blue' on 1200curfews...
"and then she opened up a book of po-eems"....the two syllable pronunciation
just makes me smile ever time i hear it..........

amy oooooooh moment:

subject:      wobbly jelly

one of my favorite moments is in "ghost" when emily's saying "dark and
dangerous like a secret..." and amy is going "don't tell a soul."  it's
always sweet to hear.   another is a memory that recurs everytime i hear
ptntf:  long ago i saw the girls at the roxy in atlanta and it was the
day desert storm broke out.  at the beginning of the show the entire
audience, plus a & e, listened to the news reports over the sound system.
before they started playing we all had a moving moment of silence.  then
during the concert, when they played ptntf, amy said in the last verse
"when you wake in the morning, grey dawn, and there's a war in the world"
& then the rest as the normal words.  it gives me chills every time i
hear that song.  "everybody's waiting for someone to come home" (one of
their really old songs) and "...squeaky.." always pass the chill test too.
mystery always touches me deep down, too.
  i could go on for awhile....i'll stop now.

hi y'all,

rusty here reminded me of something i wanted to ask the girls if i got
another pre-gig interview. that is, if they could sing 'talked about
fathers kissing wounds of our mothers' rather than vice versa. i know it's
a bit freudian of me, and it's partly due to being a bit puzzled by the
original, which i guess is sorta personal.

rusty said ...

thanks for listening,

it's a really wierd feeling when i come in each morning and spend the
first hour of my day reading list mail.  all you guys in the us are
fast asleep i guess and we over europe-way and starting our day.
reading 40+ messages in one sitting...i get to see all the mail as
conversations and not random words in space.

anyway, no ig content yet, so i better get thinking!!

first though, the idea about a questionaire type thing...that'd be
kinda cool...how many of us are on the list...must be 1000+.  could
be quite amuzing.  by the way sherlyn, that website didn't work when
i tried it.

well, it's almost the weekend...i've got big plans to just blob-out
and turn my stereo up...give the neighbours a true experience.

i was listening to loves recovery last night...the
words...wow...don't you just love it.  i played the song a few times
and every few lines or so, i'd think, yes they're my favorite
words...so i got to the end and figured that the i shouldn't try and
break the song up.  the individual sentances are powerful on their
own, but the whole song is like a testament of so many peoples
lives...i can see myself in every line.

i kind of ramble don't i....i'm just constantly bowled over by the
power of the two!

(that was a bit corny...sorry!)

talk to y'all later

subject:      the story (nigc)

in the ig lull, i know people are recommending good related music, and i
have to pipe in with this one.  the story has come up on here before, but
the latest cd hasn't really been mentioned (to my knowledge).  the newest is
actually under the name 'jonatha brooke and the story' because jennifer
kimball left the duo.  they are now a full-time band, and _plumb_ (with a
'b' :) is a truly excellent recording.  definitely one of my top five of the
year (the others include ani's _not a pretty girl_, melissa ferrick's
_willing to wait_, and 1200, to give you an idea of my current tastes).  the
lyrics are extremely literate, and the band comes to the forefront on this
one - a little jazzy here, a little bluesy there.  definitely great stuff
that doesn't seem to get a lot of notice.

so please check it out and support a great artist.  :)

that one is one of my favorites!  my all time fav is from love's recovery:

        tell all our freinds who think their so together
        that these are ghoooooooooosssts and mirages all
                these thoughts of fairer weather

the way em hits that just crushes me every time.  i must say that the
biggest disappointment on 12cc was the sax in love's recovery.  i felt
like i was listening to a michael bolton production *shiver*

also in ghost, the "unknowing captor" bridge is awesome.  the way it
builds in intensity culminating in "a cry to be free," then falling
away again "but i'm forever under lock and key as you pass through
me...."

the buildup to the final segment of touch me fall rocks too.

the original thread asked for one didn't it?  *sigh*  oh well.

                        --  chris  (who guesses he needs to register
                                     for a number)

p.s.  i'm really enjoying this thread =)

having only joined on this list a week ago, i'm not sure if anyone's done
this already, but how about this for a little project to do in ig downtime:
everyone submits their ten favourite artists, (not to the list but to a
volunteer  - preferably not me, as i don't think the systems dept at my
workplace would be too chuffed at the volume of incoming mail - we're not
really s'posed to join lists...oops)
anyway, someone bungs the info into a spreadsheet and works out what the
lists top 20 or 30 artists are, and then posts the results.  i reckon it
could be pretty interesting - i'm sure a lot of us have many fave artists in
common and it's pretty obvious who number one'll be,  but it might throw out
some unusual ones that we could then go and check out...

i definitely have to agree...though i don't even know the michael bolton song,
the sax in lr on 1200c is rather disappointing...  lr is probably on of my olde
st favorite ig songs, and i still get shivers every time i hear "rain-soaked, a
nd voice-choked, like silent screaming in a dream, i search for my absolute dis
tinction..." building up to the "eating us away" part...  i always loved this w
hole song, but it meant even more to me when i got to see them sing it at the c
oncert here at mizzou (columbia, mo.) in sept. 1994.  i remember it was very da
rk and the stage lights were a deep blue.  it was beautiful...i think it put me
in a trance...ahhhh...

i wish they'd hurry up and get back on the stage -- for liking them as much as
i do, i sure haven't seen enough shows!!!  (but i understand that everyone need
s a break, and theirs is definitely well-deserved!)

cooper seay ans amy have been going out for about 5 years. the only time
i have seen them sing together was at the show in santa monica last may.
she played guitar and sang on bury my heart.  (back when they were still
learning the lyrics).

it's wierd, but i think amy could easily have a punk band.  it seems like
she wants to rock out.., but holds it down a bit because she's got this
side thing going on with emily.  (just kidding!)

maybe eventually emily will become an english teacher and amy will play punk.
that would be pretty cool. i'd have a kid, just to send them to emily's
class so that we could have parent/teacher conferences!

(geez, i'm wacked. but hell, it's friddddday!!)

i so agree w/ all of these, esp the thing about the saxophone - ew! guess
i'm a purist.

unrelated to the girls, i have a question.  does anyone know any
biographical info about melissa ferrick?  when k and i played a best buy
grand opening, they gave us "willing to wait"  and some other free cds,
and i know
nothing about her except that i heard she was in out magazine sometime
last year.  i listened to her cds nonstop all summer long.

hi everyone,

i've been sifting through the never-ending list of environmental
information on the internet, and i came accross this page. it is very easy
way to contact your representatives, senators, and the president to let
them know how you feel about some of the most pressing environmental bills
now being reviewed, and it's as simple as clicking a button. writing
letters to these important governmental officials is the most effective way
to affect a possitive change on government policies.
please take the time to look over this page and to check the appropriate
boxes. it should take about a half an hour to do, but worth your time to do
well. please do this asap. the internet site is:

                 http://cedar.stanford.edu/

send this message to as many people as you can - it will only be effective
it everyone participates!

thanks for making an effort to do this,
jeff evans

subject:      i'm harboring a fugitive...

  this is not meant to spark a gut-wrenching dissussion over privacy
and the purpose of this list (although it probably will *sigh*);
however, there were a couple threads recently that i have (imho) have
started to cross the lines privacy.  being the hyper-responsible first
born child in an alcoholic family i somehow feel the need to say
something....

  we have no *rules* as to content.  there are no content police here.
but that freedom of expression carries with it a responsibility not to
go "too far."  where is "too far?"  hell if i know, but i do know it
exists.

  when you post something to the list, ask yourself "would i like
about 1000 strangers to know that about me?"

keep in mind that if only 1 in 500 fans (i pulled that out of the
air) would consider "stalking" someone, with 1000 people, you'd expect
to find 2 (and you only need 1).

   also keep in mind that which a&e have made public record.  the song
"fugitive" makes a strong statment to me about the pressures that amy
and her unamed friend face.  or interviews that mention a&e discomfort
knowing that there is a 24/7 conversation about them on the internet.
think also of the omissions in those songs and interviews.

   mind you i'm just descibing what i do before i consider posting.
my way is not "the way."  it is not meant as "the way."  its meant as
"a way" in case one may be looking for guidence.

   this is not meant as a flame.  new people come to this list every
day and have no idea what a&e have said or implied on such issues and
they ask an innocent question.  if you want to answer them, consider
direct e-mail.  also consider politely declining and explain why.

                hoping the repercussions of this post do
                  not occupy the list for 2 weeks,

                                chris

subject:      ooooohhh...

okay, i guess i'll bite on this thread...
there is a line of "mystery" on 1200 that sends shivers up my spine for minutes
afterwards.  in the last chorus, emily sings "standing at opposite poles,
equal partners in a mystery ...yeah".  the "yeah" is different from the so
version and it adds passion beyond description that is already so full of
intense emotion.  just my opinion, but that moment is incredibly moving to me.
put on your headphones and turn up the volume.  i'll hand you a blanket when
you start shivering.

subject:      fave moments in galileo

hi everyone!
i have to agree with em (stankul@ix.netco) about my favorite galileo part.
that little moment when amy puts her arm around emily is precious.  they
seem like they are having so much fun doing the video, it makes me
jealous...!
   i also like when amy kind of surprises herself by goofing on some of the
lyrics...
that is also very cute!  that must have been a riot to  film.
    ok, jsut one more little part too that i really like is when emily is
dressed as
the pope and amy waves that sword by emily's face while she is playing and
emily
stops playing to put her hand up to ward off amy and the waving
sword/lance....
    i guess that is all!  bye- dana

i've been gone for the past two days....spent some time with my friend
playing "myrna may i..." myrna may i walk across the floor to smoke a
ciggy...myrna may i pet your dogs...
myrna don't freak out because i spit on the sharpening stone so i
could sharpen my knife...you're supposed to do that
it seems that even though i love her like a sister, we're always
fighting....
she tried to kill herself one night...i grabbed the knife from her hand
and cut myself in the process....it was a cry for sympathy...
she apologized the next day for my cut but i said that i would heal, but
she'd never come back from the dead....
*sighs* then we spent the day doing stuff to make her feel better and
i ended up spending my whole paycheck which was supposed to go towards
bills....oh well
oh blah dee oh blah dah....
thanks for listening

hello my name is andrew.  i have been subscribed to the list for
a few weeks and decided to give an intro of myself.

i have been an ig fan for about 3 years.  i must admit that i have
been amazed by this list. everyone is so excited and enthusiastic about
the music.  the ig have been one of the best discovered secrets in my life.

i had a chance to see ig in concert a couple of years ago, but i failed
to attend. ever since then i have been regretting that i couldn't see
them.
i attend northern kentucky university (cincinnati). in dec i graduate and
plan on leaving this place.  it is very conservative.  i hope to move to
boston and attend graduate/law school. (does anyone live in boston? if
you know anything about boston, the schools, the area, etc.  please e-mail
me at - michalack@nku.edu -)

fare thee well,
andrew

thanks, but if its too much trouble, that's ok too.  i just got really
curious with the leading phrases on the cover... "amy says the "l" word",
etc...  well, keep in touch, and thank you again.  (deb taped blue
food -live old indigo- and colour me grey -amy's solo album- for me if
you would like copies.... just say the word.  they're kind of fuzzy, but
worth listening to.  (of course, it's amy and em!))

     "hold on child you got a long road and you have to forgive"
-listen to the hou version. i thought i would never do it. i said to
myself i wouldn't be that shallow and every one of their songs has merit.
but i did. "chickenman" is the best ig song ever written when done live.
there are some songs that even the people who write them can't take
credit for. this song is about everything and nothing at all. quite
possibly the best(or one of the best) modern folk songs ever written.
nuff' said.

hello !
  just wanted to put in another post ....tonight has been a rough one,
staying home to
try to get ahead with some of my work, and i still can't manage to get
anything done.
   oh well....here's the reason for the post.  i just got blood and fire
yesterday (muchos gracias to the happy folks at rainy day records), and i am
having a great time with it.  i put on american dream on repeat and listened
to it about 10 times over...the only annoying part was how the song is
segmented on the cd because after the song you hear the whole introduction
for the next song before it would recue american dream.
     annie ("indigogwls"),  i can now say i've had the pleasure of hearing
"mona lisas and mad hatters".  i agree it is great.  i used to listen to
elton john a lot in high school and the only downer about hearing "ml&mh" is
that it reminds of the first big break up i had to deal with, so in general i
have a knee-jerk bad reaction to the song.  now at least i have a reason to
get a knee-jerk happy reaction to at least the ig's version.  :>)
  have a good weekend everyone!   -dana

subject:      nigc- but a thought worth reading

agh!
i'm back, struggling to have an attention span...........
and actually came across very interesting paragraph that i thought i would
share.

in reading from "american indians, american justice" by vine deloria, jr. and
clifford m. lytle (university of texas press, austin, 1983) for my indian law
class, the authors discuss the difficulties that arose between the tribes on
reservations and state governments as a result of the federal government's
exclusive control and regulation of indian affairs.  citing a whole host of
problems (the states' quest for land, lack of understanding of one another's
cultural differences, jealousies among the white population over indian
exemptions from state laws, continuing racial discrimination, and economic
competition) the authors state,
             "perhaps as distressing as any single factor has been the
              perpetual and very strong belief held by most whites that
              equality before the law means cultural homogeneity.
              ...strange as it seems, the fear of the majority generated
             by the cultural and behavioral differences of the minority is
            a more potent force than the fear by the minority of oppression
            by the majority.  the reason for the disparity is obvious.  **the

            majority rarely considers the foundations upon which it exists**,

            and any alternative style of life that seems successful raises
           fundmental questions the majority prefers to resolve by imposed
           force rather than reflective thought."  (p.52-53)

    **the most interesting aspect of this for me is the recognition that the
problem of
discrimination is rooted in the majority's lack of understanding of itself
rather than an understanding of the minority.  you can't truly relate to
other people unless you yourself
know where you're coming from, right!?  makes self-esteem and self-awareness
all the more important.
      i hope i haven't overdone it on the "deep thoughts meter" tonight.  i
really am going to call it quits now.  if you are still with me thus far,
thanks for reading!

take care all,
dana

subject:      daemon

  i thought people would want to read this article on daemon that was in
the ajc today.

        "daemon fits ray's independent spirit"
                by mark binelli

        the daemon records logo appears ready to pounce.  "i did that,"
says amy ray with a half-smile, glancing over a copy of her independent
record label's latest newsletter.  mid-cover crouches the hand-drawn,
white-on-black company mascot: a creature with a speckled feline head and
torso and decidedly human legs and feet.
        "usually it's an animal's body with a person's head," says ray,
better known as the dark-haired, punkier half of atlanta folk-pop duo
indigo girls.  "but i think daemon is more like the mind of an animal,
with the body and mistakes of a human."
        the metaphor fits.  as a not-for-profit label staffed by artists
and dedicated to supporting underground music, daemon remains an anomaly,
even on the indie scene.  "amy used to write out the newsletters by
hand," says label publicist john brand.  "i don't think she likes this
new one.  it's much too clean and corporate-looking.  she looks at it and
says, 'oh, gosh, it makes us look like a _real_ label. i hate that.'"
        a recent visit to the "ice house" -- a.k.a. daemon headquarters,
a former ice storage warehouse near decatur -- confirms the label's
nonconformist status.  along with the requisite band posters (jam, clash,
elastica), decor includes a framed piece of "prehistoric cave art" by a
class of fifth-graders and a giant red "a" from an early high museum aids
exhibit. brand sprawls out on a faded throw rug for an interview, while
ray stops by for some quick business _and_ to make sure someone will feed
ethel, the pet lizard.
        ray, 31, already independently released the first indigo girls
records when she launched daemon in 1990.  "there were so many bands that
i was a big fan of that weren't putting out records because they didn't
have the money, so i just kind of combined my personality as a music fan
with the fact that i missed the whole indie rock world."
        the label's debut recording, "reluctantly we" by the now-defunct
rock band ellen james society, received national acclaim and was followed
by successful releases from singer-songwriters kristen hall and gerard
mchugh.  (former ellen james singer cooper seay still works in daemon's
mail-order department.)
        in 1993, however, the label overextended its resources on a trio
of challenging acts from outside the atlanta area -- moody rocker james
hall, "melodic thrash-folk-metal" outfit lay quiet awhile and power-pop
group oblivious -- and soon reached a crisis point.  budgets soared;
artists whose records sold well by indie standards couldn't receive
royalties until their projects broke even.  "we realized if we kept
spending that much," says brand, "there wouldn't be a label after awhile."
        then came divine inspiration.  literally.  in 1994, daemon
released "jesus christ superstar: a resurrection," a delightful
re-recording of the entire andrew lloyd webber rock opera, starring ray
as jesus and idigos partner emily saliers as mary magdalene.  a benefit
for gun violence education, the album remains daemon's best seller
(approximately 20,000 copies to date), and reinvigorated all involved.
says ray, "that was probably the turning point of the label."
        daemon has since renewed its commitment to local and regional
artists and placed a tighter limit on budgets.  signed musicians are also
required to spend a few hours working at the label to learn about all
sides of the music business and maintain an atmosphere that's more co-op
than corporation.  "she doesn't have us cleaning the bathrooms or
anything," says chris lopez of the rock*a*teens, who has stuffed
envelopes for the label.  "i think it's great.  it keeps everybody on an
even keel."
        these new efforts have resulted in a strong five-artist roster
that also reflects another defining characteristic of the label: its
diversity.  far from the hipper-than-thou pretensions of many independent
labels -- which spawned the now-predictable "indie" sound of moaned
vocals over untuned guitars -- daemon isn't too cool to build a _truly_
eclectic roster, ranging from the piano-based pop of belloluna to the
'teens' triple-guitar drone.
        daemon's next large project, due in august, will be a benefit cd
for native american environmental causes; artists contributing songs
include bonnie raitt, toad the wet sprocket, matthew sweet and jane
siberry.  "the theme will loosely be about honoring the earth," says ray,
"but i don't want it to be a bunch of songs about wolves running through
the woods.  i don't want that new age edge."
        in the end, she says, the label's "little triumphs" have been the
most important for her.  "when it's on a smaller level, it's not quite as
abstract.  like, when you look at michael jackson's career, they say he
had a bad year and he went quadruple-platinum." ray laughs, "and if you
look at something like daemon, we're happy if we sell a hundred records
in a week.  and i like that."

i'll bite... for some reason, i always picture a cozy little cabin in the
middle of nowhere and emily on the front porch, sitting on the swing whenever
i hear- "love's recovery" "mystery" and "fare thee well".
don't ask me why, i don't really know!!!! but it is always that same scene in
my head.

"blood and fire"- i see amy on a metal balcony, but since she like, mentions
a balcony in the song that's not so original, right. okay let me think of
another....

"jonas and ezekial" always, always, always makes me think of this old
cemetary i've visited in saint augustine, florida (one of the coolest places
in the whole wide big world with this little corner store that makes the most
delicious cherry fountain sodas ever, ever, ever!!!!!) it's so peaceful there
and you can just wander about and think about what mysteries it holds.
sometimes i picture this place when i hear "history of us" as well.

"bury my heart at wounded knee" always makes me think of sitting outside the
mall two days before christmas, waiting for my ride and thanking god that
christmas was close and my job would soon return to it's nice calm state. :)
just 'cause that was where i was the first time i heard it. :)

and the weird thing is that every time i listen to "1200 curfews" i can
totally picture exactly what the show is like. i've never even seen the girls
in concert, but it seems so clear to me how each song would be staged.... :)

okay, this is probably way too much information, but i've got on the ig cd,
and i'm feeling all happy and smiley and content and in love and stuff, so i
just had to ramble. :)

anyway- i have a question. reading some of the posts about jcs it occured to
me: did they actually stage it? i mean, with a set, costumes, all that stuff?
i was always under the impression that it was just something they cooked up
in the studio as a benefit. i didn't think it was actually done as a show!!
somebody please clear this up for me!!! :)

thanks.
goodnight friends!!!

~*rick
having very sweet dreams!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

someone mentioned something about amy ray wanting to spend time with
"cooper", is that cooper seay from viva la diva?  are they, like, a
thing?  not related to their realtionship: what else have ig done with
viva la diva?  i have vld best of album and amy sings background on a
song, as well as jane s. playing cello, did cooper ever sing with ig?
the name sounds more familiar that just seeing it on the vld album.
one thing that's kind of funny about the whole thing... the two groups
are so different sounding!  its like beastie boys covering a john denver
song.  (you get the picture...)  well, if anyone has any comments on
this, i'm just curious, not looking to spread evil rumors or anything...

subject:      re: ooooh...

there are so many *oooooh* ig moments - i'll try to name just a couple:

(i'll pick ones from 1200c since that's what i'm listening to right now)

1)  the live version of "strange fire" when they sing the line "strange fire
burns with the motion of love..." and the drums come in. the drums add so
much power and impact - kills me every time.

2) the whole of "least complicated", and especially when emily sings : "i'm
just a mirror of a mirror of myself, all the things that i do..." and she
does that funny thing with her voice on the "do..." i wish i was there when
she actually sang it.


hmmm - there are a lot more but i'll leave it at that for now.

i know just what you mean about certain phrases and notes. some of my
favorites include:

1. in least complicated when amy starts the second verse :" so i just sit up
in the house and resist and not be seen until i cease to exist" gets me
every time - the way the drums kick in, and how her voice is so ... i guess
staccato is the word i'm looking for.

2. in the live 10,000 wars from botby amy's line "is there ever anything else
that makes us take our different sides".

3. probably my favorite line as imagery is in ghost "to be aching like
achilles, with you always at my heels"

4. on a personal level it was during "love will come to you" right when em
sings "where there's now one there will be two" when i felt my baby move for
the first time. it was really exciting. it must have been an omen because as
soon as he could talk, he would ask to hear "me" (let it be me) over and over
again. it was funny, he was not even 18 months old, and he knew that before
me was "nashville", and he also could say (and recognize the music to)
galileo!

i think my favorite image is of amy ray beneath the streetlight, taken from
the last chapter of an adolescent favorite, "the outsiders" when one of
the lead characters is shot down inside the ring of a streetlight.  i can
just see her there with her black guitar singing the hell right out of
that song . . . .

also, emily scared shitless on delta flight 474 all cute and a-tremble.

yep, they did do it as a show, in atlanta first, then at the south by
southwest festival in (ausin?), then in seattle for another event.
supposidly, there is going to be a video released sometime in the future of
the seattle show.

me too! i love this line, this song almost invariably brings tears to
my eyes.  the other line i really love in this song is "i could go
crazy on a night like tonight... summers beggining to give up her
fight" absolutely a great line... beatiful...

another moment i love is on 1200 c the 14th track on disc two (the
hidden track) when amy sings "this time... don't assume anything.."
and " i am a problem child.. i've been wild all of my days"...
i don't know why i like this line so much, aspecially since it's only
a snippet of a song i have never heard in complete form.. but i love
the little bit that is there. very cool.


peace all y'all

another of my favorite moments from 1200c... during midnight train to
georgia when the background singers (i am not even going to try to
guess who all is singing) does the "whoo hoo" part.. makes me laugh
and smile every time! they just seem to be having such a damned good
time, even as a recording it's infectious!

one of my favorite moments from igs is when i first saw them (a while ago
- during n*i*s tour) at the cincinnati zoo's peacock pavilion (an outdoor
venue, perfect for igs).

we arrived late, and had to park my little car on the sidewalk
(illegally). apparently, the girls saw my "indigo or bust" sign in my
back window, and they commneted on it during the show! that was cool.

the other personal favorite is when amy sings "oh mercy..." in language
or the kiss. it's an amazing moment live, and it was caputured well on 1200c.

subject:      just another hello

hi, everyone!
      i realise that you've all been reading many a "hello post" in recent
days, but i feel the time has come to stop lurking and reply to some of this
stuff!  first of all, my name's sarah and i live in atlanta... i really don't
want to go into some huge spiel (how would one go about spelling that,
anyhow?) about exactly how much i love the girls and why i do; let's just say
that i plan to propose to both of them and leave it at that... ;)  as for the
jcs thing, i have little musical talent, but are we looking for average
versions of the songs, here, or can we shake things up a bit?  i have good
friends in a ska band... i'd love to have them as accompaniment for
something! (that way nobody would really have to hear me croon...) as for the
"ooooh" thread, there are entirely too many to list, so expect many a future
post from me on this, but the first things that come to mind are: the "ghosts
and mirages" line in lr- i only have three versions, but on every one it
gives me chills... also, when amy says "sarah!" in the middle of ctf on
1200... i just want to say, "yes, amy?  i'm here!  i'm listening!"  anyhow,
there are just too many more... i'll keep you posted. (literally.)  what
else?  well, my collection is still limited, so if anyone has any urge at all
to share anything at all, i am more than willing to accept anything on which
i might get my gubby little paws!  oh yeah!  the non-song-related images?
i'm must say that scott's coming out story was touching!  i don't even
really know you and i was crying... i love it that you shared that.  thank
you.  as for me, you're all going to think me daft, but i always think of my
friend andrea's dog when i hear ftw... see, i went to destin, fl this summer
with andrea, her boyfriend, jacob, and his friend jeff. (i promise there is a
point somewhere in here...) needless to say, a & jacob were together a lot,
leaving me with jeff. (nice guy, i'm really not saying that i minded.  julie,
you know who i'm talking about!) we stayed at a's dad's beach house, and they
have a golden retriever, sadie.  one night jeffrey and i were out on the deck
at about 3am listening to the ocean and just talking, but he needed to go
inside for a while for some reason, leaving sadie and i to bond.  this was a
really hard time for me, because andrea and i had truly been inseparable for
years, and not only were we growing apart considerably, but she and jacob
were getting together; it was me losing my best friend and i was miserable.
it was the only time anyone's really broken my heart.  all i could hear were
the lyrics to ftw running through my head.  i sat there alone and stroked
sadie and sang the whole song to andrea and to the waves, who kindly engulfed
the sound, so that only sadie and i would hear, and every time i hear the
song i think of this and i cry.  and it's theraputic, and last week i called
andrea, but it will never be the same... so, i hope i haven't taken up too
much of your time, and thank you for listening.  i have never told anyone
about that... again, thank you.  it means a lot to know that there are people
out there who can relate at least slightly.  on a lighter note, some more
"ooooh"s: amy's "ohhh now" in the middle of the a/e/m part of kf, the way
amy's voice is so, well, raw, i guess, in "blood and fire", and, when i wear
headphones, i love to hear amy sing "i tried, tried to be true" over and over
into my left ear.  that's all for now.  thanks again, guys!  love you all!
peace, love, and happiness, sarah

subject:      nigc-just jammin'

          i just finished writing the third page of a 10 page paper
          proving that bieris de romans was a lesbian poet in the
          middle ages. she is the only troubairitz who wrote a love
          poem to another woman. it sounds kind of boring but not
          really.  are there any medievalists out there?  i am not
          really, just taking this class as grad. credit.  i am
          actually a victorian type...the bronte's , austen, and
          virginia woolf (you can imagine how much i like ig's song
          about vw).  i guess that i did end up talking about ig
          enough to post with out the nigc signal.  oh, well.  if
          there are any other  victorian types out there what other
          literary hints do you hear....there are so many...almost in
          every single song.  one of my favorites is in lmaf on sf,
          the "lady of shallot" is mentioned.  for anyone who cares,
          the lady of shallot was a woman who was trapped in a room
          with only a mirror and a window.  she never looked outside
          with her own eyes, but instead looked out the window through
          the mirror.  so, basically she never really viewed reality.
           when she did finally look for herself, she couldn't handle
          the truth and jumped out the window.  this is just one
          interpretation.  hope i didn't ramble too much.
          love,

i listened to this a lot while i was pregnant and in labor.  actually, my
labor was so long (26 hours!), i got to hear the entire album over and over
and over.  i was kind of delirious for the last few hours but i distinctly
recall re-surfacing and saying, "isn't this like the 50th time we've heard
chickenman?!"  i was getting annoyed with it but i wouldn't let anyone shut
off the tape because i was determined that my child would come into the world
hearing the harmonies of the indigo girls.  what better start to life could
there be?

my son entered the world to the tune of 'galileo' and he has been musical
ever since!  i am now in the process of adopting a baby girl from china and
when we go and get her, ig will be with us once again.  my husband gave me a
discman specifically for this purpose for christmas, so now i just have to
figure out which stuff i don't need in my luggage in order to make room for
my ig cds!

this has been a fun thread ... i agree with so many of the "oooohhh" moments
that have been posted thus far!

subject:      nigc- bieris de romans- woman to woman poetry

          bieris de romans

          "na maria, pretz e fina valors"

          lady maria, your worth and exellence
          joy, understanding, and exquisite beauty,
          the warmth of your welcome, your exellence and
          honor,
          your elegant conversation and charming company,
          your gentle face and amiable gaiety,
          your gentle gaze and amorous mien-
          all these things are yours, without deviousness.
          and these things have drawn my truant heart to you.

          for this reason i plead with you--if true love pleases
          you-
          and my joyfulness and sweet submission
          could elicit from you the succor that i need,
          then give me lovely woman, if it is pleasing to you,
          the gift in which i have most joy and desire,
          and from you i have derived all my happiness,
          and from you--so many times--my painful yearning.

          and since your beauty and worth enhance you
          above all women, so that no other is superior,
          i plead with you--please! it would bring you honor,
          too, not to love some suitor who'd betray you.

          glorious lady, woman, enhanced by worth, joy,
          and gracious speech, my verses go to you.
          for in you are gaiety and happiness,
          and every good that one demands of a lady.


   well, elizabeth there you go.  maybe amy and emily could turn this
          into a song?  a lot of the smooth flowing sound of the
          poetry was lost in traslation from octavian/french  to
          english.  how could this not be a love poem?

          later,
          towanda

          post script: bieris is the medieval version of the name
          beatrice.

o.k. it looks like i'll keep track of who's singing what. if you want to
sing something from jcs please mail me so i can keep a list. then if
someone wouldn't mind receiving the tapes we make and putting them
together i really think we can do this. i'll even have a due date. who
ever wants to be on this album please e-mail me by febuary 15 and make
your bids. if someone else is already singing your song i'll tell you and
if you want choose a new one. heres the list so far.
everything's alright- amy
poor jeruselam - martha
pilates dream - me

* also remember that some of these songs should be played with a band and
a couple back up singers. i couldn't imagine an acoustic version of
"what's the buzz" or "superstar". but there are songs that would only
need a piano accompianment(ex. i don't know how to love him, poor
jeruselam,ect...). you make the call.
thanks to all who want to join in. if it all works out it's gonna be a
great tape(and of course sent to amy and emily if possible:)
still excited,
ben

hey, can i have "gethsemane/i only want to say?"  please?  can i?  since
"poor jerusalem" is already taken?

sounds cool--perhaps a communal jesus?  (but i don't want to steal your
steam, amy, i just love that song . . . )

subject:      sax...

okie, ordinarily i wouldn't get involved in this type of debate(yes i
would.), but this affects me very personally, so i'm gonna put in my 2
cents.  "love's recovery" has been particularly mentioned as a poor
rendition because of jerry's sax (too michael boltonish, kenny g'ish). well,
let me preface by saying i abhor michael bolton(please no flames) though i
like kenny g(in a mood). lr was not one of my faves early on because i found
it to be a kind of wishy-washy song, but i've grown to love it through
experience and growth. and when i heard it on 1200c, i wrote it on my heart.
jerry's sax blended with the song and enhanced it greatly imho. the intro
even made me cry because of the feeling i heard from the music. i dearly
love what a sax can do to squeeze out every last drop of emotion from a
song.. does mcc's "john doe no. 24" strike a chord?

just thought i'd share.. i usually don't when it comes to these things.

subject:      mental images

hi friends,

      in response to the mental images question, "dead man's hill" comes to
mind. i don't know why, but it seems kind of, well, kind of , ah.. sexual...
ya know? i can picture two people in a field lying in the grass chatting
about life. conversation leads to profound probing of each others hidden
feelings of intimacy and desire. these two friends, yet virtual strangers,
suddenly find each other in the throws of passion. volatile, then submissive.

     aahheemmm...welll, ....you get the idea. (a minute to reflect and
compose)....

      another kind of sexual song (in my deranged mind) is "touch me fall."
for some reason it's the same two people in a house that's snowed in and
their in front of a fireplace.....the result is similar.

      wait, as i type this, "hammer and a nail" becomes oh, soo familiar. and
what about "galileo" and those little tights he wears....and....and....what
about "closer i am to fine".....ah huh.....explain that one
emily........and...and..and...what about........
"power of two"........ah huh.....ah huh.....ah huh........i knew it!!!

      sorry, got a little out of hand there. oh, here comes the nurses with
the white coats again. nursie, is it time for my prozac....do you know amy
and emily......what....what do ya mean i'm obsessed.....

i'll reiterate chris' words here:

i'm glad that chris posted this, because i think it was something that needed
to be said. again, i'm not trying to point any fingers or start a war, but
this forum requires a little "self-moderation" so i think it's important that
people speak up when they have something to say.

>  when you post something to the list, ask yourself "would i like
>about 1000 strangers to know that about me?"

this is a _very_good_suggestion_. let's call it "suggestion #1."
and here's my suggestion #2:
when you post something to the list think to yourself, "would i be typing this
if i _knew_ that amy and or emily would read it?" i'm not saying a or e will
ever read anything on this list. maybe they will, maybe they won't. i'm just
saying that if it's something you'd be ashamed to say in front of amy or
emily, maybe you shouldn't be saying it on the list.

again, no flames. i'm not trying to start anything here. i'm just trying to
toss out a gentle suggestion.

not really, actually. the lady of shalott (they misspell it in their
liner notes) is from a tennyson poem of the same name; she's a fairy of
sorts cursed to live in a castle in the middle of a river and never to
look down to camelot; she has a mirror in which she sees everything that
goes by. when lancelot rides by and she sees him in the mirror, she gets
up and looks after him--riding down to camelot--

out flew the web and floated wide,
the mirror crack'd from side to side;
"the curse is come upon me," cried
the lady of shalott.

she leaves the castle, gets in a boat, and, singing, floats down to
camelot as she dies, startling everyone there...

but lancelot mused a little space;
he said, "she has a lovely face.
god in his mercy lend her grace,
the lady of shalott."

there's much more to the poem than this, of course. if you want a copy,
ask me and i'll send it to you.

hi fellow 'netters,

my name is ellen fox and i recently started using a magazine subscription
club in the usa that has a free 1 yr. magazine subscription deal with your
first paid order- and i have been very pleased with them.    they have over
1,500 different usa titles that they can ship to any country on a
subscription basis.   as for computer magazines from the usa, they more of
a selection than i ever knew even existed.  they have magazines for most
every area of interest in their list of 1,500 titles.

within the usa, for their usa members, they are cheaper than all their
competitors and even the publishers themselves.  this is their price
guarantee.

overseas, on the average, they are generally around one-fourth to one-half
of what the newsstands overseas charge locally for usa magazines.  on some
titles they are as little as one-tenth of what the newsstands charge.  they
feel that mgazines should not be a luxury overseas.   in the usa, people
buy magazines and then toss them after reading them for just a few minutes
or hours.  they are so cheap in the usa!   well, this company would like to
make it the same way for their overseas members.  they are also cheaper
than all their competitors in the usa and overseas, including the
publishers themselves!   this is their price guarantee.  around one-half
their business comes from overseas, so they are very patient with new
members who only speak limited english as a 2nd language.

their prices are so cheap because they deal direct with each publisher and
cut-out all the middlemen.

they will send you their deluxe email catalogue (around 525k-big and
juicey) !)...if you completely fill out the form above.  it has lists of
all the freebies, lists of all the titles they sell, titles broken down by
categories and detailed descriptions on nearly 1,200 of the titles that
they sell.

please do not email me as i am just a happy customer and a *busy* student.
i don't have time to even complete my thesis in time, let alone run my
part-time software business!  please fill out the above form and carefully
follow the intructions above to get it to them via fax or smail.

they guarantee to beat all their competitors' prices. sometimes they are
less than half of the next best deal i have been able to find and other
times, just a little cheaper - but i have never found a lower rate yet.
they assured me that if i ever do, they will beat it.

they have been very helpful and helped me with all my address changes as i
haved moved from one country to another.

they have a deal where you can get a free 1 yr. sub to a new magazine from
a special list of over 295 popular titles published in the usa.   they will
give you this free 1 yr. sub when you place your first paid order with them
to a renewal or new subscription to any of the over 1,500 different popular
usa titles they sell.

they can arrange delivery to virtually any country and i think they have
clients in around 45 or 46 countries now.  outside the usa there is a
charge for fph (foreign postage and handling) (on both paid and freebie
subs) that varies from magazine to magazine.  i have found their staff to
be very friendly and courteous.  they even helped me with an address change
when i moved from one country to another.

the owner thinks of his service as a "club" and his clients as "members"
(even though there is no extra fee to become a member - your first purchase
automatically makes you a member) and he is real picky about who he accepts
as a new member.   when he sets you up as a new member, he himself calls
you personally on the phone to explain how he works his deal, or sometimes
he has one of his assistants call.  he is kind of quirky sometimes - he
insists on setting up new members by phone so he can say hi to everyone (i
sure wouldn't want to have his phone bills!),  but you can place future
orders (after your first order) via e-mail.

he has some really friendly young ladies working for him, who seem to know
just as much as he does about this magazine stuff.  if you live overseas,
he will even call you there, as long as you are interested, but i think he
still makes all his overseas calls on the weekends, i guess cause the long
distance rates are cheaper then.

he only likes to take new members from referrals from satisfied existing
members and he does virtually no advertising.  when i got set-up, they had
a 2-3 week waiting list for new members to be called back so that they
could join up. (once you are an existing member, they help you immediately
when you call. )  i think they are able to get back to prospective new
members  the same day or within a few days now, as they have increased
their staff.  i am not sure about this.........but if you email the above
form to them, that is the way to get started!

they will send you their deluxe email catalogue (around 525k-big and
juicey) !)...if you completely fill out the form above.  it has lists of
all the freebies, lists of all the titles they sell, titles broken down by
categories and detailed descriptions on nearly 1,200 of the titles that
they sell.

they then send you email  that outlines how his club works and the list of
free choices that you can choose from, as well as the entire list of what
he sells;  and then they will give you a quick (3-5 minute) friendly,
no-pressure no-obligation call to explain everything to you personally and
answer all your questions.

once you get in, you'll love them. i do.


sincerely,

ellen fox


ps.  please forward a copy of this message to all your friends on the net
who you think might be interested in it!  it is a great deal!  if you join
and then they join after you, you will earn a free 1 yr. subscription for
each new person you get to join after you join!   if you exceed 25
referrals, they let you use them to give away as gifts, for christmas,
chanukah or any other occasion.  please be kind enough to mention my name
when you join.   i will then get a free magazine for a year for referring
you.
thank you.

okay, okay, my turn. :)

i rented bots the other day, went out and bought it a few short hours
later. so far, i've seen it 3 times and cried every time.

anyway..some of my favorite ig moments:

-emily singing 'southland...' in bots.

-'the wood song' when amy comes in after the chorus, "but the question
drowns in its futility....' ooh. that always gives me the chills.

-'tuib' when emily is singing the bridge, "i lived with you on montague
street.." oh me. such raw emotion. i love it.. :)

-and that last note emily sings in 'virginia woolf.'

:)

hey :)

well, it's done (almost...) a tape collecting all the unreleased tracks
known by amy and emily (using a wierd set of rules, excluding some things
but including others...) in pretty decent quality, now i've had a chance
to clean the tapes up a little bit...

so. i need to throw together an inlay, and then the slow distribution
process can begin...i think slow is the key word here :):)

i have many, many tape tree offers...that's people who'll get a tape from
me, and then make copies for anyone who wants them...prolly more than i need,
so this is what i propose to do...

if you want a copy of this tape...email me. and then after a week or so i can
find out about how many people this will involve, and hence how many tree
people i need...and then it'll all start it's workings...

of course, if you have something really cool that i _need_ to have...(ig's
live in sf tape...that emily solo tape...rare demos...) then i'll be
shameless in my prioritising :):)
but everyone who wants a copy should be satisfied...

this is not for profit!!! distribution should take place on a simple tape and
ssae or trade basis.

anyway, i hope that's cleared any questions that may be arising...so i'll
shut up and let you have the track listing...

i always get a picture of emily singing closer to fine on a hillside at
dusk...of amy screaming rome & juliet into the night...of amy walking
outside at sunrise and saying "i think i know what's wrong" in ptntf...of
emily looking out a window on a rainy day on love's recovery...and of amy
driving away from a small town on a hot day in nashville.  maybe i'm just
too literal-minded for my own good, as my buddy robin says...

hear my singin' call,

for me, it's the line"the vanity of youth" from fare thee well that still
knocks me down.  i was living in nicaragua with someone and the
relationship came to an end really quickly...looking back i see how
really unhealthy the whole situation was, and how stubborn i had been
about wanting to be in it.  vanity of youth was more than a lyric.

i totally understand that, in fact, i was thinking of posting the
exact same thing when i got back to school (today.) wow.  a couple of
my other favorites are the word "ships" in the last verse of "ghost"
and the part in verse 2 of tuib, where emily goes "i used a little
too much force." if you listen carefully, she does something funky on
the word "force". i don't know what it is, but i always backtrack to
hear it again. mmmmm.

i guess one of my favorite lines in ig music history is the following
from "love's recovery".  it always makes that stupid lump in the back of
my throat come up.

"oh how i wish i were a trinity,
so if i lost a part of me
i'd still have two of the same to live.
but nobody gets a lifetime rehearsal
as specks of dust, we're universal
to let this love survive would be the greatest gift we could give."

especially when amy joins emily one the latter two lines...

listening, watching, waiting for your call...

love,

average singer.  i plan on doing it with just a piano or guitar....it's
such a quiet song, and i have a sort of small voice...any suggestions?

ditto here - none of our local cable providers here carries disney - i would
be *extremely* grateful to anyone who could tape it for me and would be
willing to send it overseas (the philippines, to be exact) - i'll pay for
everything, of course. please e-mail me if you would be willing to do this.
thanks very much!

ok,
    i've been reading the list for a couple weeks so i'm not going to introduce
myself or anything 'cause that gets boring.  i do have two questions though -
one pertaining to the list totally and the other just kinda.
    one, in the first letter i received it says their is a question/answer sort
of thing we should load down from the world wide web.  one problem-even though
our computer in our room is hooked up to e-mail the winsock(?) program isn't
working right or something so we don't get the 'net.
    is there a way i can get that faq without loading it from the net.

and-
    is there anyone else out there from michigan?  i live in alpena (way north)
but i go to michigan state university and i just wondered if there were any
other great fans from our great state.  :)
    personally, i think this list is the most fun i've had in a long time.
sometimes, i just sit down and read the entries to have a laugh.  you people
crack me up!!!  thank you from a student with a ton of problems on his hands.

ok, i'll jump on this thread.

when i was in college, i made a car trip to an unfamiliar (though reasonably
nearby) city.  i was a few minutes early for my appointment, and having
nowhere to go, i sat in my car with some homework and the radio to wait.

rop had just been released.  i had heard some ig recordings before then, both
from a friend and on the station i was listening to at the time.  "galileo"
came on the radio, and for some unknown reason, i stopped everything i was
doing to listen.

my appointment finished, i drove to a suburb of the city with which i was
familiar, found a record store and bought rop.  i still don't know exactly
why i was suddenly (and forever) fascinated by ig's music.

i still have a vivid image of myself sitting in that car in that unfamiliar
place, listening to that song which seemed oddly familiar even though i had
never heard it before...

one more.  power of two never fails to make me cry.  something about
bedmonsters (sherman's lagoon, bloom county) and math and the realities of
life with another person and the knowledge that love does conquer us, sustain
us, hinder us, and so much more, but it does empower us to do things we might
not do alone.

sorry to take up so much of your time and bandwidth.  i'll go to sleep now.

peace, love, chocolate...

p.s.--yes, sweetie, i do get sentimental occasionally.

subject:      re: favorite moments

hi!

i'm new to this all, having been a part of this list for three days, but i
have a favorite moment i'd like to share with the group.  on the watershed
video, when they're singing the psa for "get together", they pause before
they belt out "right now..." in the last chorus of the song.  in addition to
them sounding amazing, the thing that gets me about that scene is the way
they are with each other.

a&e are amazing not only because god graced them with incredible voices that
they (thankfully) share with us, but because they are so in sync with each
other that they move the same way and breathe the same way when they sing.
at that pause, they look at each other, grin while taking a huge breath that
makes their shoulders rise at exactly the same time in the same way, and then
sing a beatifully harmonized end to a great song.  the first time i saw that,
i laughed out loud, alone in my apartment.  i rewound it, wtached it again,
and started to cry for all that it says about how cool these women are and
how much they have given us as musicians.

ok.  enough.  i have probably overstayed my welcome in this message.  if
anyone has anything to add or say, please feel free.

aim, you're not alone in this. it's terribly sad.
to make matters worse someone i really care about counts gene kelly as one of
his idols and he's away somewhere and i have no way of finding him because i
know that he's got to be another sufferer of this
sorrow... :( i wish i could hug him and make him feel better for a second.:(
instead i'll send you and everyone else who's feeling this loss {{{a big

hi to y'all out there

did you have a good weekend...mine was pretty lame really.  just
wanted to put in a word for my dad (as praising the parents has
become a bit of a thing!!).

my dad is really cool...in the past 6 years since my parents divorced
he's changed into a totally new person, completely charged by
emotions.  he's got one ig cd...so, and wants to get others (he has a
lot on tape).  he's really envious of me being on the list and is
thinking about getting a computer and linking up to e-mail so that he
can share his feelings with y'all.  so anyway, just thought i'd say
'hi and i love ig' from him.  my mum on the otherhand just doesn't
have a clue, but i love her!!!

i played a lot of nis and sf this weekend...i've been in rop mode
all week so it was a bit of a change.  i was listening to crazy
game...it's so different to their other stuff...first time i heard
it, i was kinda confused, but now i think i'm getting used to it.
it's a really mellow tune, wonder where the inspiration for it came
from.

anyway, talk to y'all later

love helene

re. jcs:
the video's out already (well, they're taking orders for it already); it's
$15.00  + $1.00 for shipping & handling:
daemon records
p.o. box 1207
decatur, ga  30031.

also, there's a really cool t-shirt ($18.00) which is already already out, as
i'm looking down at mine right now.

end of daemon plug.
for now.

that makes sense and meshes well with why i don't like the sax.  to
me, the simple harmony and the poignant lyrics won lr to my heart
immediately.  prior to "ghost," it was simply the best thing they ever
wrote.

the saxaphone does have a way of bringing out a mood and i love the
instrument in lots of places, but (to me) the mood was already set.
to me the sax made the song feel like a french art film, no subtlety
and mellodramatic (forgive me all you french art film lovers, but i
just saw "city of lost children" and was less than impressed =)).
i've done my own squeezing of emotion for so long, i didn't want the
sax there. =)


on the other hand, i am glad they play with the staging of various
songs.  it is one of the things i like about ig, they are able to take
risks and simply have fun!  plus, maybe i didn't like it -- but
mindigo did.  maybe there are few more lr fans than there were a few
months ago.  that would be a good thing. =)


> just thought i'd share.. i usually don't when it comes to these things.

i hope you keep it up, your comments were cool and helped hone
my feelings on the song instead of "*unk*  me not like" ;)

their songs, so i'd really appreciate it if someone would explain

i think that one of my favorite lines of all time is this one from mystery

"so what is love then, is it dictated or chosen
does it sing like the hymns of a thousand years
or is it just pop in motion
and if it ever was there and it left, doesn't mean it was never true"

i swear when i hear these lines, i always get a chill

i just wanted to share my opinion on the messages i have seen (not as much
recently) on our discussions.  i think a person has the right to decide what
is too far for their limits as a person.  there is such a thing as freedom of
speech. . .remember that.  don't criticize others for what they, as an
individual, consider important.  (i bet i'm going to get slammed for this; oh
well.)

susan

ok, i am prepared to be laughed at if i missed something here, but i read
amy wrote "secure yourself" when her cat died, and i really didn't think
she was being sarcastic, because it all makes such perfect sense!
"open-eyed and fast asleep,"  "no feet to fall, you need no ground," and
that's why she "dig[s] a grave to bury" it. etc.

i heartily agree.  i think one of the really cool things about a+e is their
versatility, the way in which they can carry a song so magically by
themselves, but also fill out the sound with really interesting arrangements
played by some excellent musicians.  i first saw them play live on the first
leg of the rop european tour and they had the full band with them.  they
returned to london to do another show at the end of that leg and played as a
duo.  it's impossible to say which was the 'better' gig.

over the weekend i happened to be looking at some of the articles at the
lifeblood web site, and the following comments seemed somehow relevant...

"    february 8, 1986 -- from the atlanta journal-constitution

    indigo girls are in the pink
    two guitars and 2 voices make for one budding act
    by gary yandel

    "i think there is something about us that's unique, i don't know what it
    is, but why do people come out to hear two guitars and two voices?" ms.
    saliers asks. whatever the answer , they don't want to change their formula
    for success. "we don't want to make any compromises for commercial music.
    we just want to do what we do. no madonna," ms. saliers says.

    "and no lionel richie hooklines," ms. ray adds.     "


"hmmmm... but what about michael bolton/kenny g sax lines???" ponder the iglist.

don't flame me guys - just having some fun here.  i think that this quote,
ten years old and out of context as it may be, actually testifies how
uncomprimising our girls have been in terms of never selling out.  yeah!

(and i don't mind the sax bit... isn't jerry multi-talented! and btw, has
anyone ever noticed he sometimes plays drums barefoot - there's a shot from
the back during galileo on the disney/bbc recording which clearly shows him
shoeless...)

ho hum,

subject:      ig moments

hi all,

i love the intro to hand me downs...the drums and kind of bird calls
and that growl that amy does makes me shake...

i have been real sick lately and was dreading going to my doctor's
appointment today...i have been playing po2 on the guitar almost
constantly just to calm my nerves...the song is always on my mind and
i was humming it the other day when i walked into the grocery store
and immediately i heard the same notes over the speakers...it was the
muzak version of power of two!!!  i couldn't believe it...i would
never have been able to pick it out if i hadn't been so familiar with
the sound of the song...i decided to take it as a good omen and went
to my appointment today with good thoughts...too soon to know, but at
least i lived through today...

hope you are all well,

michelle

i have so many oooh moments with ig, it's almost impossible to
choose...but i'll try.  :)
          i love it the harmonies in yamottw.  they're beautiful.
they really bring out both of their voices.
          "fugitive" is an oooooh song.  the entire song makes me go
"oooh".
          in the beginning of hmd, before the music starts,  when amy
(at least i think it's amy) whispers "yeah".  gives me tingles just
thinking about it.
          "ghost" does it to me every time.  that song is one
gargantuan "great line".  it almost seems emily wrote that song about
me..:)
          hmmm..now that i think of it , almost every song of amy's
makes me go "oooh".  but then again, everything about amy does.  :)
she's so damn cool. heheh

                                         peace and bless you,

lisa?
that's pop emotion.
no flame, but it really changes the way you would relate to that set of
lyrics, ie. pop culture being fast to rise to the top, and faster to fall.

subject: the natural life cycle of a mailing list (fwd)


this may be the natural life cycle of a mailing list, but it's got a hell
of a lot of similarities with aber.misc !

---forwarded bit thingy---

the natural life cycle of mailing lists

every list seems to go through the same cycle:

1.  initial enthusiasm (people introduce themselves, and gush alot about
    how wonderful it is to find kindred souls).

2.  evangelism (people moan about how few folks are posting to the list,
    and brainstorm recruitment strategies).

3.  growth (more and more people join, more and more lengthy threads
    develop, occasional off-topic threads pop up).

4.  community (lots of threads, some more relevant than others; lots of
    information and advice is exchanged; experts help other experts as
    well as less experienced colleagues; friendships develop; people tease
    each other; newcomers are welcomed with generosity and patience;
    everyone -- newbie and expert alike -- feels comfortable asking
    questions, suggesting answers, and sharing opinions).

5.  discomfort with diversity (the number of messages increases
    dramatically; not every thread is fascinating to every reader; people
    start complaining about the signal-to-noise ratio; person 1 threatens
    to quit if *other* people don't limit discussion to person 1's pet
    topic; person 2 agrees with person 1; person 3 tells 1 & 2 to lighten
    up; more bandwidth is wasted complaining about off-topic threads than
    is used for the threads themselves; everyone gets annoyed).

6a. smug complacency and stagnation (the purists flame everyone who asks
    an 'old' question or responds with humor to a serious post; newbies
    are rebuffed; traffic drops to a doze-producing level of a few minor
    issues; all interesting discussions happen by private email and are
    limited to a few participants; the purists spend lots of time
    self-righteously congratulating each other on keeping off-topic
    threads off the list).
or

6b. maturity (a few people quit in a huff; the rest of the participants
    stay near stage 4, with stage 5 popping up briefly every few weeks;
    many people wear out their second or third 'delete' key, but the list
    lives contentedly ever after).

well, maybe in a former life you heard a piece of music that was remarkably

subject:      providence show, 1993

hello!!!
as i was looking through the ig mail, i stumbled over a pretty cool thread,
asking people to recall their favorite ig moment.  i thought that this was
very cool and made me ponder about my most memorable ig experience.   since
ig first came out, i was a semi-fan.  i certainly enjoyed and appreciated
their music and unique sound and style, but was not a dead hard follower.
rop was definitely a turning point in my ig mania.  i can remember sitting
in the student union of my highly acclaimed alma mater, uri when i heard the
dynamic duo were playing the providence performing arts center.  needless to
say, i was happy!  i will never be so blown away by anything as i was by that
version of "galileo."  so, here(finally!!) is my request.  if anyone has a
copy of this show, i would so appreciate it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! please send me
e-mail with your address and i will send you a sase and tape or whatever you
need. thank you!!!!!!!!

maggie

just had to chip in my 2-cents worth on the "love's recovery" sax....i'm
so happy i'm not the only one who feels that way! i love the song (the
other versions), but the one on 1200 is one of the veeerrryyy few ig
songs i end up fast-forwarding through (and i used to feel kind of
badly about doing it). yeah, for some reason the sax in that just doesn't
work....

subject:      bumper stickers!

does anyone else get kinda happy when they see an ig bumper sticker on
someone's car? today as i was navigating through rush-hour traffic,
coming up to a major stoplight and listening to "the wood song" (always a
nerve-calmer for me), there in front of me was a white car with a "peace
symbol" ig sticker right in the middle of the bumper. call me nutty, but i
just get all happy and smiley when i see one...i don't see many of them,
so when i do it's a big deal to me.

speaking of the peace symbol bumper sticker:  i tried to get one last
year, but they were only selling the swamp ophelia ones (which i really
like too and have on my car)....are the peace symbol ones still
available? if anyone knows, please let me know. thanks!

happy week to y'all,
christine

hey there.
        i dunno about y'all but as a long time listie here i miss having
something to talk about that is at least a little fresh.  i mean no
offense in anyway to everyone who has just joined -- welcome! -- but
lyric interpretations have been kicked around for years now.  and if
anyone asks what chickenman is about i think i'll sign off the list.  i
just can't take it anymore...
        so while this might not be particicularly igc it is list related
in anycase...
        how about a preview of what people have recorded for indicated 3
-- it's almost time to start seeing the real product but a little preview
promotion never hurt anybody... so if you sent rob a track or two, tell
us about it mayhap, eh?
        i was in the studio a few weeks ago and laid down a quick take of
'love will come to you' -- it might have been done on indie1, but i think
my solo rendition has a little something different to it.  maybe it is
just the way i look at things being a guy that gives me a different
approach to the song -- maybe it is the songwriter in me making unwanted
changes in emily's wonderful song... who knows... anybody else?
        if nothing else we could at least all see about how many songs is
gonna be on our third attempt, eh?   take care y'all.... phil

yeah, sue, that part of the 1200c "mystery" is great....other "mystery
moments" to focus in on (ones i really like!) are in the version on the
po2 single (the one that comes right before "rockin' in the free world"):
right at the end of the song, emily gives a little exhilirated laugh
right before the finishes the last line of the song. i looooove that part!
also, the guitar parts in that version are awesome:  the clear, intense
picking that comes right after she sings "you like the taste of danger,
it shines like sugar, on your lips...". i love that too! and amy singing
the very first lines of the song alone; a nice change from the so
rendition. overall, i think that's my favorite version of mystery.

i feel the same way, emily.  i am a male and when i tell some of my other
male friends that i love the ig, they automatically call me a wuss and
other names that i don't appreciate that much.  also, i live in nc and i
am a very loving and warm hearted person.  just because i canexpress my
feelings, guy's think i am gay.  i am not gay, so it bothers me how
people can have these set ideas of what makes a person gay.  it reallyh
pisses me off!!!!!!

        i have a new silly thread for you all.  actually it is a thread
to let someone else on the list know that they are a wonderful person.

here is how it goes....what is the greatest thing that you have gotten
from this indigo girls list..anything just name it.

        for me it has been getting to know elizabeth young.  even though
she is half way across the united states(indiana to oregon to be exact)
she has became one of my greatest friends.
        it all began with this list.  her favorite song is ghost.  i
played it and began to listen to it the way she did.   we then started
talking about other songs and soon achieved a bond that i think will
end in a lifetime of friendship.....
        just wanted to thank this list for giving me a friend who makes
me happy and gets me through those rough times.  (along with the girls
songs of course)
        ok thanks!  what about the rest of you?  what positive things
have come of this for you?

hello list buds-
i was watching watershed this afternoon.....(yep, kate actually had free time

the "group shots" in the ctf video. amy refers to the animals following the
pied piper, but does anyone know who any of "animals" are....im just sorta
curious...which leads me to the many other persons who just sorta pop in and
out of the scenes...i would love to know who some of them were. so if anyone
can enlighten me and the fellow listmembers, i would be grateful....thanks...

subject:      wounded knee (long but worthwhile)

i am taking two native american classes this semester and i sat down in
the library today to catch up on some reading that i have (of course) put
off for awhile...i ended up crying in a corner in the library because the
story of what happened at wounded knee, along with all of the other
atrosities committed against the native people of this continent is so
upsetting...i thought maybe you all would like to hear what happened at
wounded knee in case you dont already know...
a paiute man named wovoka claimed to hae received a vision that directed
him to journey from tribe to tribe to teach a new way of life (other than
the way the united states government had forced them to live).  his
message was to give up european ways and to return to old customs that
had been practiced before the arrival of the europeans...no guns, no
alcohol, no trade goods...they were to give up all of that, and
dance...dance, and the europeans would depart, leaving the land once more
to the indian people...dance, and the great warriors of old would
return.  this movement become known as the ghost dance...throughout the
west tribes laid down their arms and danced the slow hypnotic dance.
some groups wore shirts that they called ghost shirts...these were
supposed to give magical protection against bullets (the europeans became
so threatened by the ghost dance that they outlawed the dance).
the troops became nervous by this strange behavior...they remembered the
defeat at little bighorn and custer's defeat....
a band of indians were camped under guard by the federal troops at
wounded knee, south dakota and on december 29, 1890, the indians
assembled and began to dance.  an army officer ordered them to stop.
someone, it is unknown whether it was a white or an indian, fired a shot,
and the calvary guard opened fire.  two hundred indians and sixty
soldiers died.  that was the battle of wounded knee, the last
confrontation between the plains indians and the dominant society.

in this class, i have been learning a lot about how certain groups of
people think that they are better than others and how ignorance leads to
horrible things... everybody in this world needs to be understanding of
everybody else.  we are not all the same and we have different beliefs
and values, but that doesnt make one group better than the other, nor
does it give anyone the right to persecute another group.  history
repeats itself...please, everyone remember what has happened in the past,
and learn from it.

i am going back to my corner in the library now to try not to cry but to
think about things...a lot of things...thanks for letting me ramble a bit.
stephanie

hey, y'all.  its been a while since i've posted anything big, so i guess
i'm due. :)  when i hear romeo and juliet, i picture the r+j movie, but
with amy dressed up as romeo, cool feather hat, purple velvet knickers
(not underwear, for you uk people!), and a matching jacket kind of like
the blue one that she wears for a lot of rop (you know, the
soldier-looking one), but longer and velvetier.
i have more to say, but i can't think of it now, its toooooooo late.
g'night y'all.

yeah, for a while there, my mom was a bigger fan of melissa etheridge,
but we both dissed her latest ("your little secret") and indigos got
major points for "midnight train to georgia."  now, everytime i buy an

yeah, in my studies of women in literature, i did a presentation on that
story. my premise was that it could be seen as a true horror story (the
wallpaper/person behind the wallpaper posesses the visiting woman) or as
a horror story about patriarchal inspired madness.  then i went into how
the horror was different for different genders according to which
interpretation is followed.  obviously, women catch it both ways, but
men only have to worry if it's a "monster" horror story because they
don't run as much risk of the "establishment" driving them insane as
women do.  got an a. worked to well i did it (in another class) with
edgar allan poe's "the fall of the house of usher."  got an a there,
too. hope yours does as well!

oh, no, i didn't know.  i am sorry.  but (being a red-head and of the
right age) i cried when lucille ball died.  my ex-husband was a bit dr.
seuss fan and when  he saw a cartoon after seuss's death that had a
little sign saying "green eggs and ham" and an arrow pointing to the
pearly gates, he got sniffly.

i was fuming last summer when something similar happened.  i had taken a
photography class at school last spring, and during the summer i was
still taking b&w pictures but i didn't have access to equipment to
develop it myself.  so i took my film to this little photo place in a
nearby shopping center (it's one of those one hour photo processing
places where you always get your film back 3 days later).  anyway, i had
my film there and on that role i had pictures of friends and of katherine
and i playing music somewhere.  when i went to pick my film up, of course
it wasn't ready so i sat there and waited forever (they said it would be
15 minutes but i ended up waiting at least 40).  as they eventually came
off the press (or whatever you call it), the clerk looked at each
picture, critiqued it, and then asked me about it.  first of all, that
was pissing me off b/c it was so nosey. then she asked if i was in a band
or something and i said yes and she said "what kind of music do you
play?" (tangent: previously she had asked where i went to high school and
i told her marist, which is a catholic school and she told me how good
that was b/c "we're all christians here."  okay, so i'm a christian too,
but she said it in this supremist neo-nazi kind of way, like she would've
converted me if i'd said i were jewish. sorry for the tangent.)  so i
told her what i tell everyone: "well, it's katherine and i and we both
play guitar and we sing. we play all original songs and there's lots of
harmonies, etc, etc. some people have compared us to the indigo girls."
"oh, are you gay?" she responded.  i was both dumbfounded and pissed that
a total stranger was so invading my life and personal space.  and also
it's so ick that the first thing some people associate w/ the girls is
their sexuality. argh.  i'm getting irritated just thinking about it.
anyway, i never answered her and told her that she was incredibly rude.
she told me that i shouldn't be offended unless i was gay.  then she said
she knew i wasn't, although she once worked with one of those people, and
besides, "you're too young to know anyway, right?"  i still would like to
injure that woman.  thanks for listening to my long reenactment (i know
you all visualized the whole thing, right?)

i just thought of a story that will bring a smile to your faces...hopefully.

i work at the front counter of a paging company where we deal only with the
public.  people come in to make payments, start new service, etc.  anyway,
this very "butch" looking woman came into the office and everyone inside our
office started whispering about her.  she walked up to my friend lisa's
window for assistance.  lisa was very kind to her, and provided her with the
assistance she needed.  after the transaction, lisa, who btw is married (to a
man), commented on the beautiful ring that the woman was wearing.  the lady
pulled out 2 ring boxes and showed lisa 2 matching rings, telling her that
she and and her girlfriend were getting married.  lisa was so congratulatory
and nice to this woman, i actually got tears in my eyes. no one was giggling
anymore, infact, i think they felt pretty bad for their initial reactions!

  i have not seen kindness and understanding like that in a person in a long
time.  it also made me realize that there really is hope for our society.

i know that some of you dont like the nigc this thread is following, but i
hope it at least makes you feel a little better about people in general!

hmmmm.  i haven't been confronted by anyone about my affection for ig
yet, but neither have i gotten tons of accolades for it (until i joined
this list!).  living in the town i do (davis, ca), ig is almost required
listening...but next year, i will be living in sacramento and no such
atitude is as prevalent there as far as i know.   so we'll see.

personally, i didn't read it and it was cluttering up my mailbox.  that's

hi y'all

well, to jump on the band wagon, i would also love to know more
about the newport folk festival...if i can plan it right, my friend
and i hope to visit the states during the summer to see the concert
and some friends.  i know it will take a lot of planning, but we can
dream.

thanks to all of you that explained the 'jcs thing'...sounds kinda
cool...i'll be keeping an eye out for it over here.

you know the ig show that was being shown on disney channel over the
last 2 days...does anyone know when it will be shown on the european
disney channel...i know someone with sky tv and they've looked in the
programme guide but it's not being shown at the mo.  if anyone has
inside knowledge...please spill the beans!!

ok...i guess i'd better get some work done...a good dose of ig
mailing list first thing in the morning is always good for you!

buzzy experiences of last night...closer to fine on 1200 curfews...the
'yeah' bits!!  also, language or the kiss...a close friend wrote to
me a week or so ago and quoted a few lines from it...i haven't
listened to it for a while and it cut right through me when i heard
it last night...the whole letter had been about how you have so many
people around you who are 'friends' but when it comes to the
crunch they're really only strangers...you're really pretty much on
your own...we went to high school together and out of our whole class
there's only about 2 people that we keep in contact with...sometimes
i think about these things and feel like a really anti-social person,
but then other times i think why should i waste my time on
superficial friendships.  i guess it's all relative really, but i can
feel most alone when i'm surrounded by loads of 'friends'.  that song
will always mean a lot to me just because one of my real friends has
introduced their thoughts on it to me.

i didn't mean to go on so much on nigc, but there is relevance in
there somewhere!!

talk to y'all later

love helene

someone else in this town shares my good taste in music!  the main point
of this, though, is a horrible story.  i used to have an ig sticker - one
of the so ones.  i loved it so much; it looked really neat on my car.
unfortunately, i came out to my car one morning, and someone had stolen
it!!  i guess the moral of the story is, not all ig fans are as honest as

  a few people were wondering about the newport folk festival.

  its a weekend concert held at fort addams state park in newport, ri.
the setting is beautiful, you are on a point surrounded by the
atlantic with the stage set against the fort.  the music is an all day
affair, ~45 minute sets and about 15 minute change overs.  headliners
have longer sets, but don't overlook any of the smaller acts, for
example laura love just blew everyone away last year.  artists come from
a variety of backgrounds -- celtic to folk rock.

   there is ample parking and picnicing is encouraged (no alcohol);
however, traffic getting to the grounds is terrible and you may have
to lug your stuff a good distance.  food is also availiable in the
park (ben & jerry's sponsors the event -- peace pops!) as well as the
works of many artists (by girlfiend picked up an african mask there
last year).  seating is the
first-come-first-serve-bring-a-large-blanket-to-mark-territory sorta
thing.  if you want the best seats, plan to get there early.  there will
be more details about times, etc. as the event approaches.

   if you are a photographer, bring your camera.  in the past there
has been a photographers pit right in front of the stage.

i think that should cover it for an event that is 6 months away. ;)
although i haven't heard any official dates yet, it will probably be
the first weekend in august again (aug 3-4, 1996).  i made a net
search, but could not find a www page.  count on ig to be the sunday
headliners

                                -- chris

p.s.  oh yeah, how could i forget after last year... weather.  the nff
has this uncanny ability to attract rain and cold.  this actually can
be fun if you are ready for it, but be ready for it.

another option, for those who dont want to deal with traffic at
the park (and arent concerne with ebing there at dawn...) is to park
in newport town and take a harbor boat acorss to the park.  you pay for
parking either way.  i like taking the boat as it drops you right
near the entrance gate.

>    if you are a photographer, bring your camera.  in the past there
> has been a photographers pit right in front of the stage.

actually, this depends on the set.  for most acts, teh seciurity
guardw will let people up front to take pics.  but, for acts like
ig, you are only allowed to stay for a min or two and then they
move you along.  the pit chris describes is between the rope
separating the crowd from the stage area fence and is basically a walk
way that you may or may not be allowed to take (depending on who is
standing guard near it).  the great thing abotu newport is thaty cameras
are allowed so lots of poeple can take shots.  there is a photo pit
directly in front of the stage for press types (behind the snow fence
mentioned earlier and inside the stage area), but sadly they dont set
up something like that for everyone else.

> although i haven't heard any official dates yet, it will probably be

it might also be the 9-10 weekend..  the official annoucnement
of dates and lineups is made in mid to late may.  you can bet there
will be a flurry of posts about it.  tickets usually are avialbale
at ticket outlets and by maill.  until mid-july they offer two
day weekend passes, and teh day ig plays has pretty much sold out
the last few years.

oh now chris dont be an alarmist  :)  the rain last year was nothing
compared to 1992.  *that* was rain.  i've gone to newport for 6 years
now and it has only rained during the day at 2 years (both on days
that ig played...hmm...)  usually the weather is nice and bright..
dont forget the sun screen!

anxiously awaiting summer (anything warmer than it is now!)

bumper stickers aren't a big thing here in the uk...well i don't see

hi everybody!

i just wanted to say thank you to all of the people who e-mailed me with their
interpretations of r&j about three weeks ago. these wonderful, self-giving,
highly intelligent people include: amy p., ben, suzanne, stanley, lorinda,
oracle, rustyr, cylinda, maggiew, and whoever rebrad is...
i have not gotten my grade for the class yet, but everyone told me i had the
best presentation, and i have all of you thank!
byw, someone, i forget who, said they wanted me to forward all of the responses
to them b/c they were interested in reading them. i read back through the
messages and i can't find who it is, but i have saved all of the responses i
received, so let me know who you are, and i will forward them to you!

have a great day, and thanks again!

oh yes! what a great point! i remember a long time ago when i was trying to
figure out just "who" the girls were singing to, and i started looking through
lyric sheets for pronouns. no luck, except where the meaning was ambiguous
anyway. then i listened  again to hey jesus, and i heard that line and i
thought to myself, bingo! there has to be a pronoun there! ran to get the
lyrics, and....um, emily, um, you didn't use a pronoun in that sentence. no
fair ;)
somewhere along the road there a clue began to dawn in my meager little brain.

subject:      ig scenes

i know that i am a bit late in this thread, but i felt compelled to add
my own two cents about this:
i have so many visions in my mind when i listen to ig.  when i hear
"hammer and a nail" i think of my sister and me on long family car
trips when we were younger.  my sister always does these hilarious
motions to the songs and we always listen to ig on family vacations.
if i didn't know better, i would think that i wrote the lines,
        "i said to you the one gift which i'd adore
        unwrap a package of the next 10 years unfolding
        but you told me if i had my way i'd be bored.
        right then i loved you best born of your scolding.
        when we last talked we were lying on our backs,
        looking at the starts, looking through the ceiling.
        i used to lie like that alone out on the driveway
        trying to read the greek upon the stars, the alphabet of feeling."
language or the kiss of course.  i have lived this scene and it is so
close its scary.
        but probably the best vision that i get when i hear ig is from
"fare thee well."
        "it was a brief brilliant miracle dive..that which i looked
        up to and clung to for dear life..
        i caught you then in your moment of glory- your last dramatic
          scene against a night sky stage.
        with a memory so clear its as if you're still before me..."

all i think of when i hear those words is newport folk festival 1995.
and although cheesy, it really is true.  i was in the front row having
the biggest thrill, seeing ig for the last time in over a year.  and
then when i was able to go back stage and stand next to emily and get
my picture taken with her- well, of course that is amazing.  but that
whole experience of being so close is really so poetic to me, hence    i
fitting perfectly with "ftw."
        now i will be quiet. :)  love, lynn

i'm _sure_ there's a boot or two where emily
_definately_ puts the pronoun in...

and the pronoun in question is.....
'it'

of course, i might be lying and have meant 'she'...
then again, it wasn't so clear, so maybe it could have
been 'he' or maybe not...

i give it to them to get the recent showing and it turns out that they
no longer have the disney channel.

  that leads me to my plea, is there anyone out there who would be willing

okay, i'm going to take a stab at this on.  i don't think the idea of the
post was that they were offended at being called gay,  i took it more in
that they were offended by a total stranger assuming it and then thinking
they had a right in asking them.  speaking as a lesbian myself i know it
ticks me off to no end that people assume i am straight.  it is not that i
would be offended to be called straight.  it is that someone i don't know is
making judgments whether good or bad about me based on something that is
none of their business.

wow. the stories that have come out of this thread have left me just shaking
my head and thinking, "gee, some people sure can be stooooooopid." i've had
people ask me too when they find out i'm an ig fan. although, most of the
people who asked me were friends (or should i say 'friends') who thought they
were doing it just to needle me. (ummm, sure. ok, whatever.) so, seems to me
here are several possible examples of appropriate answers when faced with the
obnoxious question, "oh, are you gay?"

1. why? are you?
2. blue
3. um, what? i'm sorry. i didn't hear your question cuz i was too busy having
a sexual fantasy about you.
4. um, what? i'm sorry. i didn't hear your question cuz i was too busy having
a sexual fantasy about my neighbor's iguana.
5. (taken directly from bots: when whoopie goldberg is asked) yes i am. and
i'm sure you hear that from women _all_ the time, but in my case it happens to
be true.
6. did you fart?

can anybody think of any more? i've reached my limit for now cuz my mind is
occupied thinking about my neighbor's iguana.

delurking here...hi!  i'm rich.

now with that out of the way, here's one of my favorite ig 'moments':  from
"world falls":  the "i slept in rainy canyon lands" line is beautiful!  i
have tons more, but they unfortunately  don't come to mind at the moment.
that's ok, though--more installments will follow. ;-)

more ig content:  some songs that i don't hear too much about that are
among my faves: "love will come to you"  (i *was* born a cancer--so there!
:-p), "the wood song" and "hey jesus".

i'd write more, but i *should* be studying sound and music perception.
then again, maybe i'll just observe the effects of, say, nis on my system.
works for me... ;-)

hasta luego,

my mother is not the best driver in the world, so whenever we go anywhere
together, i insist on driving (it has its perks. . . i can smoke). anyway, a
little over 5 years ago my mother and i were traveling from new jersey to
carlisle, pa (hey phil) so i could attend dickinson college. don't think i
wasn't scared to death. to calm my nervousness, i forced my mother to listen
to music i has in the car with me (mind you it's only a 3 hour trip, but when
my mom doesn't like what she hears, she can be a bear). anyway, to make a
long story short, for 3 hours my mother listened to the girls' 1st 2 records
and fell in love. it's funny, but she's really taken a liking. she's seen 4
shows (sat 1st row with me at the last one at stabler). at her first she was
kinda excited that two rows in front of her three women were smoking pot, she
thought that was daring. anyway, she met the girls and kristen hall at radio
city, had pictures taken and all that jazz. but what is most important (and
possibly slighlty morbid to some of you out there), she told me that when she
dies she wants ig played at her viewing instead of the classical music
generally played in funeral homes. i thought it was a little strange at
first, but when she explained that the girls convey asense of passion for and
understanding of life that is so often absent from popular music, it made
perfect sense. yeah my mom is a little wierd, but on the whole she's pretty
darn cool.

sorry for rambling

hi y'all

well first let me say thanks for all the responses.
i didn't know this show was so rare.  as a college
student, i can't afford to shell out $400 just so i can
make everyone copies.  as much as i would like to  :-)

one thing that was suggested is seeing how many people
would be interested in paying $20 a copy.  that price being
what alot of people would pay for cd boots anyway.

if 23 or so people respond, that should cover the cost of the
tape plus blanks and postage.  it's just an idea.  i feel as i
know others do that ig boots should be traded freely but it
does seem this is a special case.

any feedback???  ideas???  let me know.....and we will
start taking a tally.

thank you pat, that is exactly the way i feel.  i am not offended when
someone assumes or asks me if i am gay, i just feel it isn't any of their
business and that just because i have a certain trait or am friends with
someone who is gay, i am automatically assumed to be homosexual.
no offence ment to anyone!
kevin

okay, i'm going to take a stab at this on.  i don't think the idea of the
post was that they were offended at being called gay,  i took it more in
that they were offended by a total stranger assuming it and then thinking
they had a right in asking them.  speaking as a lesbian myself i know it
ticks me off to no end that people assume i am straight.  it is not that i
would be offended to be called straight.  it is that someone i don't know is
making judgments whether good or bad about me based on something that is
none of their business.

pat
         please let me clarify my remarks..i wasn't angry at julie, i
was angry at the clerk...  i appreciated what julie had to say...:)

                                                peace and bless you,
                                          shannon shevock (yamaha)

you could also try pointing out to them that the indigo girls are much
admired by a lot of other folk singers, in particular mary chapin
carpenter, shawn colvin and nanci griffith (on whose albums they sang)
and, i think, mary black (who joined in on one of their songs at the
newport folk festival a couple of years ago, yet no-one ever assumes that
any of these women are lesbians.

and what happens to male admirers of the indigo girls when you tell
people you like them?   do they wonder why on earth you listen to them
because they're lesbian?   over here most people have never even heard of
them so i couldn't tell you the reaction i get apart from "who are they?"
so i'd be interested to hear what reactions male fans in the us get.

this may be old stuff since i haven't gotten my digest in a week and
suddenly find myself with seven of them...sorry if it is ancient history by now.

just wanted to say thanks to kristen hall for taking the time to answer what
must have been a flood of questions.  a lot of people give her shit and i
don't think she deserves a word of it (and this goes for the "amy is a
bitch" strand too...), she's just a human like us and obviously a very
patient one to spend that much time on our list.

also wanted to thank all the cool people i'm trading with both for the nice
stuff i'm getting and for their patience in dealing with me...it's midterms
and i had the stomach flu for a couple days and i'm not my usual speedy self
on the taping job...i promise, soon, y'all, soon...

and thanks to the rest of you for putting up with this random post!

hope the digests will get a little bit more regular, or is this some new
format?  309 messages in one digest makes my mailer ill...

peace,

karen (k)

   and because they never seek they never find
   and they argue that it's all a waste of time...

i would also be interested in such offers...coming from the grand state of

than a little limited.  thanks!

subject:      closed-minded people

from: c. katz
reading about closed-minded people and parents makes me think about my mother.
when i bought my first ig cd (i had borrowed a friend's for about 2 weeks) i
was already hooked. my mother took a look at the titles and wanted to know if
they were some satanist band. it was the ig album and she focused on the title
"prince of darkness." i told her no, and let her listen to the album. at that
point she was pretty cool with the girls. about a year later (1990) i came out
to her as a lesbian. she wanted to know if listening to all that "womyn's
music" had converted me. i tried to explain to her that the music was putting
into words some of the feelings i was having and that most of the music wasn't
necessarily lesbian related, but she really didn't listen to what i had to
say. when the girls last came to san antonio, mid 1994 i think, my 14 year old
sister wanted to go to the concert with me. my mom told her no, she wasn't
going to let an impressionable girl go to a concert full of "lustful women."
after 2 hours of arguing and crying, my sister and i convinced my mom to let
my sister go with us, but she only gave in because a straight friend of mine
was going also. well, of course, my sister had a great time at the concert,
and to my mother's great relief, no one hit on my sister. my sister is now a
sophomore in high school and wears her so t-shirt to school regularly.

sometimes people ask if she's gay and she tells them no, but what difference
would that make if she was. sometimes she tells them it's none of their
(expletive deleted) business, and sometimes she tells them yes just to get a
reaction. i guess the point of this post is to help keep in mind that maybe
things are getting better. (and to brag on my little sis. go angela :)
