subject:      a very fruitful evening...

wow, finally a post that isn't about t-shirts! there is a god :)

well i recently got home from a night on the town with my hopefully still
dear friend dwayne :) now usually any ole night on the town is special with
dwayne (one, two, three awwwwww) but this one may be headed for the record
books. the strange thing (are you getting these puns dwayne?) is that we
somewhat haphazardly planned the evening.

i originally called him earlier today to ask about seeing a movie; that
didn't seem to work out so we opted for dinner. we ended up at a little
greek/mediterranean place at an east side mall here in milwaukee (the mall
has more free newspaper stands than it does stores, but that's whole other
discussion).

service was slow, the food was decent, but it soon was time to leave. prior
to getting up dwayne asked if i would mind heading to the used book store
that was in the mall. i politely said "no problem" although what i really
needed was some gum to mask the babaganoush (just had to get that word in
there) i had eaten earlier. i also knew i wanted to stop at the record
store on the way home to get ferron's new cd (which, btw, emily sings on)
and pick up honor. in all honesty i was hoping we didn't spend too much
time at the bookstore because i wasn't sure what time the record store
closed.

after some time in the bookstore (yes, this does have a point to it),
dwayne made his way to the cashier. i wasn't quite sure what was
appropriate behavior for a friend who was waiting for another friend to
purchase used f.scott fitzgerald, so i noted all the used vinyls that were
about the place and decided to see if there was an "i" section -- hey, you
never know! well low and behold there was, so i flipped past janis ian and
spied a familiar black frame and a steeple. my heart sank. i pull it out of
the rack. i check the price: $14.99. wow i'm getting it. "dwayne" i say. i
flash him the cover. his eyes pop. i walk over to him and we look at the
back: 1987. oh my gosh, an orginal strange fire.  his eyes pop even more. i
tell him he can move in with me and look at it anytime. i hand the guy at
the counter a twenty. he asks if i want a bag. "no" i say. i try to contain
my excitement. numbers flash thru my head but i'm not certain. i guess it
doesn't matter because i'm keeping it. what a night. i thought nothing
could top yesterday when i got a 7.5% raise out of the blue. tomorrow i'll
be purchasing a lottery ticket.

actually, you saw them at the civic center.  the barrymore is where ani and
ferron play.  :-)  the three indian (native american, i guess) women were
ulali, and they appear on the honor1 cd.  actually, they open and close the
2 cd set, and one of them wrote the altro that is used in blood quantum.
"all my relations" (the opener) is a very cool song.  i think they have
their own recordings, too, but i don't have info on them.

i also have two boots, but neither of them has ulali.

hope that helped.  :-)

i bought "things that show" last night at borders music.  it is excellent, i
would highly recommend it!  i also found "honor" there.  i went to *6*
different cd stores before finding it.  guess i need to consider moving to
atlanta!  anyway, i love it.  how about luka's version of "bury my heart..."?
not bad!

i got the rest of my pictures back from newport yesterday.  they rock!  i
will see about having a few scanned.

have a great weekend!

subject:      indigo dream

i had a frusterating indigo dream last night that i'm going to
subject you all to the retelling of. ;)

the girls were going to play at my university, and i had really good
seats.  but, there were two opening acts that were really stupid.
the second one, right before the girls were going to come out, was
the worst.  one of the band members was supposed to do this banjo
solo (side note:  chapel yesterday was a guest banjo-playing minister
from wva), but she couldn't get her strap fixed right so that she
could put is on an play.  so, being the helpful person that i am, i
went up on stage and helped her fix it.  well, she was so peeved over
my assistance, that she refused to play and the whole thing was
ruined.  i was upset, and ran out of the auditorium.  i could hear
some of the administrators talking in the next room, and they said
that the concert was canceled.  i was so upset!  i had sat through
two crappy bands to hear the girls, and then i didn't even get to do
that!  so, teary-eyed, i wandered into the now empty auditorium, and
lo and behold, there they were, standing on stage.  they were messing
around with cords and looked like they were trying to set up, but
were confused as to why no one was there.  so, i told them about how
the concert had been canceled, and they were very sympathetic.  they
were going to play some songs for me when i woke up.   it was an okay
ending, but otherwise a bad dream. :-}

subject:      collectors update, happiness, pre-mature announcement

howdy :) i had a pretty good day today and was inspired to write a letter.
lessee..where to start. first a mini-collectors update..there is a promo
version of the honor cd that includes a third disc. on this third disc are
public service announcements by the bands on the cd including two by the
ig :) and i also found an epic promo strangefire which has a blue insert
card (j card) and white lettering..with no pictures on it. i dunno i may
have posted that already...but anyway that leads me to the pre-mature
announcement. i'm going to try to make an on-line indigo girls museum.
i've been rambling about the museum for quite some time and it's a nice
idea i think though it's unrealistic to attempt in the real world. of
course the next best thing is cyberspace. the museum will include a
complete listing of the indigo girls museum archives including pictures of
the rarer items and a list of collectors updates so collectors can keep
each other informed of what's out there. they'll be as many original
pictures as i have room for and also some recycled stuff from the web.
since i've collected many things from my time touring, i'm going to
incorporate a tour scrap book to the museum ..maybe a few candid pictures
and
some stories as well. to complement this museum/scrapbook i'm going to
start an on-line record store which of course will focus on the ig and ig
friendly music. i do have more than my required 3 copies *for the
archives* of some items and will offer those for sale as well as some of
the photography. plus there will be a bit of normal vinyl and who knows
what else. i have a good portion of this site started but am having a bit
of
trouble getting my pictures scanned cuz every scanner around me is broken
or having software problems. so after this delay is worked out it should
be a matter of a couple days before i'll send out the address. so what
does this mean to you? :) it means a place to find those hard to find ig
collectibles that you always hear about but never see for sale. it means a
place to see original photographs and it provides information not
available anywhere else on the net. i hope to link up with all other
relevant sites so that you can come to my site and then move on to find
that new michelle malone cd and so on. if you have any suggestions or
things you'd like to see or hear about..please let me know. which brings
me to the happiness part of the post :) :) :) <-- that means big ass smile
the archives are fairly complete. i've been working very very hard and
spending lots and lots of money to make this collection the most
comprehensive around. the one item that has escaped me is perhaps that
most important of all..the e.p...a million thanks to louise welch for
donating this crown jewel of ig collectibles to the archives! she has been
a special friend for a number of years now and i treasure her as a pillar
in community of indigo girls spirit. thanks again fortunate one
that's all for now
we are fortunate ones,
joe

subject:      hte/ig poster

you guys might remember russ saying he had some honor the earth tour
posters for sale last month. well i ordered one and it arrived yesterday
and i am just in love with it. i went out and bought an oak frame for it,
which is something i have never done before for *any* poster, not even my
monet posters. :)

below is the info he originally sent to the list. i measured the poster so
i could buy the right size frame and it's actually 17 x 22. it also lists
the tour stops but that doesn't detract from the design. along the top it
says "honor the earth 1995" and on the bottom it says "protect endangered
peoples, protect endangered species." the watercolor of the navaho woman
is simply gorgeous and i sat staring at it for like 30 minutes last night.
wow, what a loser, i admitted to doing that on a friday night. :) the rest
of the design is as he described below, he just wasn't very complete. oh
this is funny, my friend dan, who hates ig (i know, why is he my friend?)
was over last night and he said "wow!" when he saw it on my wall. :)

the poster arrived rolled up in a sturdy tube so i think the $7.50 price
is really a great deal when you consider the postage and tube is included
in that price. i am sending this to the list because you might have
avoided ordering it thinking it wasn't that great or a scam or whatever
but i just wanted y'all to know it *really is cool* -- it's in my living
room so if you wanna come up and see it first just send me an email (grin)

subject:      minneapolis ig show; 9/21

remember the special events group selling tix for the ig shows in
minneapolis?  this is before they went on sale at ticketmonster and
one had to join the group before buying tix.

well, i bought the membership & tix for the 9/21 show (they had 9/20
& 9/21 listed).  got a call on wed or thurs of this last week that
the 9.21 show had cancelled.  those who bought 9/20 tix...congrats!

anyway, in trying to reconcile my situation the lady (arlana)
mentioned that the concert could've been cancelled for any number of
reasons to include a)  there was trouble getting additional "honor"
acts (both were to be benefits for the honor cd) or that b)  there
werent enough tix sold.

seems strange to me that an ig concert wouldnt sell out, especially
after the difficulty of getting tix for the rest of the demo tour.
anyone know anything?

also, arlana mentioned that there was a possibility that the 2nd
minneapolis show might be done in another city, perhaps portland or
seattle.  carolyn, miranda, binky -- stay on the lookout.

anyone know anything (or hear anything) about this?

subject:      shy little emily??

well, i've finally been motivated to post!  yay!  i haven't done this in a while
so please excuse me and any mistakes i may make! ;)
i took this weekend as an oppurtunity to watch my few ig videos (watershed, live
at the uptown lounge, austin city limits, letterman appearance a few months ago,
fuzzy copy of disney) and i noticed a major change in emily over the years.
not only has she gotten stronger vocally, she has also, in the past few years,
taken a big chunk (half) of the spotlight on stage. i dunno.  if you watch
uptown, you'll notice that amy's the major attraction, singing most of the songs
and cracking many of the jokes.  and in watershed, they both go crazy and
completely crack me up.
anyways, i just thought i'd bring this up and perhaps spark a small discussion.
bravo to emily for letting her fantastic and charismatic personality shine
through! :)

according to the latest issue of billboard magazine, "swamp ophelia"
just went platinum.  the magazine states that this is their third one.

the other two platinum discs are "indigo girls" and "rites of passage.
"
they also had songs on the "philadelphia" and "boys on the side"
soundtracks
that have also gone platinum!!

any list members planning to go.  i know it would be cooler if i
could meet y'all at an indigo concert, but there just aren't that
many happing right now, if you know what i mean.  so, that's why i'm
asking about the ani concert.

sorry to waste list space with nigc, but i really want to meet some

subject:      sag branch-no curfews

due to some technical difficulties (mostly time catching up to 1,
000's of emails during the recent ig blitz) sunny & i had trouble
connecting on the sagittarius (spelling) branch tape for the tape
tree.

1)  apologise for this

2)  those having sent tapes should have their copies in the mail on
wednesday.

3)  for those who sent tapes & are going thru major ig withdrawal &
need their tape pronto, i would be happy to add additional postage to
priority mail yours to you.  just e-mail me.

these types of things can happen when the girls are on tour and
people making tapes or who are branches of tape trees get caught in a
ig e-mail blizzard.  for a while there we were receiving more mail
than michael bolton has written original songs.  come to think of it,
me thinks mb has written only 2 original songs, so that's not to hard.
  oh hell, you know what i mean!!!!

peace, love & improving tape efficiency,

melissa

subject:      mishead lyrics--again

hello!! i know this thread has long since past, but i have a few more
misheard lyrics to add to the list. i was talking to a friend of mine about
misheard ig lyrics (of all things) and she told me a few of her own. at the
time i thought they were quite amusing; but that could have been a result of
the beer i had been drinking. isn't it strange how really stupid things
become really funny after you've downed a few? what i'm saying is, oh who
cares! nevermind my rambling on! i'm bored and tired and having ig
withdrawl. my cd player broke :(
so anyhow, here they are! a few more misheard lyrics!

closer to fine -- "he never did mary (yes, as in the name. mary who? i have
no idea) or see a big great movie..."

love will come to you -- "as if i've offered up a crystal bottle of glue..."

love and anger -- "with lines crossing into a hand and a heart that would
never breed..."

southland in the springtime -- "like the bayou with our tail lights in the
butt..." (what the hell was she thinking?)

let it be me -- (now this is an odd one) "shine my lie, fleck a light..."

hope you enjoyed these and sorry for the untimeliness (is that a word?
probably not).

love,

jendy

i just got back to school and am waiting with great anticipation for the
ig mpls concert.  i was a little surprised at the lack of interest in the
2nd night of the concert too... but, i think that perhaps this is due to
the very little publicity surounding the event.  nobody on campus seems
to be aware of the upcoming date.  i have friends on several mn college
campuses who had no idea that the girls were coming... until i informed
them :)   what's up?

subject:      sotw: kid fears

hey, y'all ig listers!  it's a new week, so instead of being one of
the last to post about sotw, this time i'll be one of the first!

i have not found much inspiration from this song.  in the past, i
have mentally added it to the list of amy songs that make little
sense to me.  even now as i read the verses again, i cannot seem to
get a grasp of what she is trying to tell us.

the chorus:  "are you on fire from the years?  what would you give
for your kid fears?"  what does she mean by kid fears?  is it things
like the boogyman, or those fears that are so deep inside of us that
when we attempt to reach them, we are repulsed by their basic-ness?
is she asking us what we would trade them away for, or what we would
give to have them returned to us?  i'm not even going to touch the
fire, since everyone knows that it is a secret lesbian code. ;)

the impression i gather from the song as a whole is that it is being
sung to someone who has retreated into his/herself to escape some
sort of painful situation.  perhaps this situation has been their
life to this point, or perhaps it is recent.  amy seems to be trying
to draw them out again, and to show them how to survive it.  "replace
the rent with the stars above.  replace the need with love.  replace
the anger with the tide.  replace the ones that you love."

well, one thing i have gotten out of this song is a really great quote.

:)

i think she means that instead of having to worry abotu the rent and alll
that which she sings abotu in the song what would u give to have to only
worry about the things u did as a kid instead of the fears u have to worry
about as a adult  fire a lesbian code???

        hi y'all...i've been listening to the ig cut on the honor1 cd and i
think i have figured out most of the lyrics...but as usual there a few words
which have me stumped.

        you're standing in the blood quantum line
        with a pitcher in your hand
        poured from your heart into your veins
        you said i am, i am, i am

        now measure me, measure me
        tell me where i stand
        allocate my very soul
        like you have my land

        genocide
        genocide

        colonize, you christianize, you patronize, you advertise (you...)

        (you love your genocide?)

        regulate, you assimilate, you appropriate, you...we love to hate you

        genocide (you are a man without a face, you're just a number on a page)
        genocide (you are a woman without a face, we'll just erase you)

        there you are a man without a face, you're just a number on a page
        there you are a woman without a face, we'll just erase you

        conscripted children, torn from truth, to the boarding school station
        force-fed the foreign tongue of fire, imprisoned education
        broken knowledge, pencil-scarred, spit-faced the ??? sage
        wisdom deep within the rock outlives the pretty lies upon the page

        genocide (how white the snowy graves)
        how red the blood terrain  (???)
        genocide (still pulsing with your dreams)
        above that ??? stain  (???)


                then it repeats of course...can anyone clear up (or point
out         any other misheard lyrics) for me??  thanks    jen

(the university of pennsylvania).  i have loved the ig forever, & i'm so
happy to have found poeple who like them as much as i do.  thanks to the
technology here, i'm able to get e-mail & internet access completely free,
which is great.  i guess that's about it...i look forward to more

subject:      sotw: kid fears

in my interpretations of ig songs, i usually don't analize the lyrics to
find what amy or emily was talking about. instead i get a strong feeling
from hearing the song of what a or e was trying to say, and then find my own
personal meaning for it. kid fears is a great example of that. i love this
song, mainly because of the music--the three part harmony and amy's
intensity when she plays it. i haven't really searched amy's lyrics
thouroughly to figure out what she might have meant through the song, but
here's what it basically means to me:
obvoiusly our childhoods greatly shape the people we become as we grow up,
and looking back, it's easier to see things that could have harmed us, or
confused us as kids, even though they were probably actions of adults who
loved us and meant well. feeling a need to conform to gender stereotypes as
a child is almost inevitable for most people in our society, and when we're
young we seldom question it. but growing up, especially if growing up
involves coming out to yourself that you're not straight or even that you're
different in any significant way, can be extremely painful on many levels.
when amy sings kid fears, to me she's singing her heart out that now that
she's grown up, it's so wonderful to know that being true to yourself makes
everything worthwhile--even the pain and fears she went through as a kid.
being a teenager myself, this song is exremely special to me, and has always
given me a lot of encouragement.

~abigail
****************in the words of emily saliers:******************

"there i am in younger days
stargazing, painting picture perfect maps
of how my life and love would be

my compass, faith in love's perfection
i missed ten million miles of road i should've seen"

here's my take:
'indigo girls' (self-titled): summer album
'strange fire': winter
'rites of passage': summer
'nomads indians saints':spring (perhaps bc/ of southland?)
'swamp ophelia': definetly summer
i don't know whether this is bc/ of when i bought the cd/ when it came out, or
if its just my over-active mind @  work...
anyhow, just a thought...

that would bee ultra cool...but there is no place called the alamo

the closest thing we have to a concert venue is the washington center

the evergreen state college (yay!) and the capitol theater ( indigo girls

to me, this seems more of a winter album...so many of the songs just seem to
come from a cold, dark place, though we do get a few meek rays of sunshine
(prince of darkness, love's recovery).

> 'strange fire': winter
naah, more of a sumemr album to me -- songs about getting free (i don't wanna
know) and running wild (strange fire).

> 'rites of passage': summer
agreed -- bright, fiery, upbeat songs like joking and galileo.

> 'nomads indians saints':spring (perhaps bc/ of southland?)
i can get specific here -- this comes from late august, early september, an
in-between time. a combination of blazing sunshine (hammer and a nail, world
falls), mellow subduedness (you and me of the 10k wars, girl with the weight),
and hints of the darkness ahead (welcome me, hand me downs).

> 'swamp ophelia': definetly summer
> i don't know whether this is bc/ of when i bought the cd/ when it came out, or
> if its just my over-active mind @  work...
well, *i* bought this one around october and at the time it was my only ig cd
and i played it over and over...so as a result, maybe, i associate it strongly
with autumn. summer is beginning to give up her fight (that unforgettable line
in mystery) but things haven't frozen yet (power of two, reunion). the darkness
has definitely taken hold, though (fugitive, dead man's hill, this train) and
we get a few glimpses of winter (lotk, fare thee well).

this is all mowo, of course. anyone else care to join this evocative thread?

>'swamp ophelia': definetly summer

i have to disagree here.  actually, it bothered me a bit that cd came out at
the beginning of summer because there are references to fall (and i didn't
want to think about fall at the beginning of a too-short rochester summer)

here is the evidence to back up my claim:

touch me fall (amy has stated that the 'fall' refers to the season.
               there are also, of course, falling references in the song.)

mystery: "i could go crazy on a night like tonight
          when summer's beginning to give up her fight"

fare thee well: "too thick the heat of those long summer evenings
                 for a cool evening i began to yearn"

so i would argue that there is more of an autumnal feel (of course, that
last one it is the dea of summer, but em is longing for fall, which one is
by law not allowed to do in rochester, ny or milwaukee, wi :).  but that's
just my take on it.

whatever,

i always took that a little less literally.  as in replacing your enclosed
space with the freedom of the open outdoors.  but i also agree with the rent
as representing the responsibility and worries of the grown-up.

subject:      what are some of your ig encounters?

here are my contributions for a new thread (i'm inspired to tell my us open
story as i watch steffi serve for the first set):

labor day weekend - 1993 us open tennis championships.  it was a typical
humid nyc day, so i was wearing my then hat of choice:  my black ig hat. my
bro, cousin & i were walking to sabatini's next match when i heard, "hey,
nice hat."  i turned to say thank you to none other than emily.  i was
completely diva/goddess/star struck.  i couldn't formulate a sentence.  i
kept muttering "oh my.., i can't beli-..., is it really yo-...emi-...from
indigo gir-..."  emily found this quite amusing and was laughing at (with?)
me.  she put her arm around me and said "thanks for the support."  finally i
snapped out of it.  i told her how much their music has meant to me.  and how
specifically, "watershed" and strange fire" were been very comforting and
inspirational during my coming out process.  she appeared truly touched.
before i "allowed" her to leave me.  i shook her hand, hugged her, thanked
her again and took a picture with her. i love that picture and i will always
remember the split moment in time where i wasn't "stalking" one of the indigo
girls but one of them was "stalking" me.  ok so she technically wasn't
"stalking" me but a girl can dream can't she?

however, you never forget your first....
the first time i did meet emily was april of 1993 outside the bottem line
here in nyc it was during/after a&e's $10 tour, which imho was their best
tour.  did anyone else see them during this tour?  interesting concept:
charge $10 for a show, play really small venues & have the first person on
line choose the song list (no solos).  they played 2 concerts that night and
i was fortunate to see both gigs.  it was great cuz for the earlier show the
person who made the song list was a major emily fan and for the second show
he/she was a major amy fan.  in about 6 hours, i think they played 85% of
their songs (at that time, of course)  they even played "never stop," which
still remains one of the many emily song i just luv.  anyho, after that
marathon session @ the bottom line, i met both emily & amy.  amy has the most
beautiful eyes.  they are absolutely yummy.  sorry, i digress.  both emily
and amy were incredibly sweet.  they both signed my poster (which the bottom
line bouncer gave me) & took pictures with me.  we spoke breifly about our
excitment over the gay & lesbian march on washington later that month.

goddess bless both amy and emily.

"where are the demons of your desire?  why does my love destroy you?"

peace, love and understanding always,

the line that really speaks to me in this song is "any sin will do"...
coming from
the type of religious background that i do, ( "christian" )i view any "sin"
as having the exact same price... death. no matter how we strive for
perfection, we will never be
perfect, and so it does not matter what the sin is. as we grow older, we also
grow to understand this and we can "skip further" through life if we are
smooth...
ie; tranquil + unruffled....
ah... it's just the feeling i get from the whole song. i was an abused child
+ so
this song spoke to me on that leval at first... but at this time in my life,
having
dealt with all that, i see other things in amy's lyrics. it doesn't really
matter,
though, because the music and harmony are so powerful + fill me with such a
good
mix of emotion that she could've written about grapenuts + it woulda'
touched my
soul :-)
peace all ... kim ( who is smiling cause she said "grapenuts" in a post
again... eww... get it??? post grapenuts???? is that the brand name... or is
it *after* grapenuts, or what??? ) :-)

okay, i can't resist jumping into this one, as i got to meet a&e after
the austin show at the backyard.  like i posted that night (actually
about 2:00 a.m.) they were both totally cool, took pictures with me,
signed my atlanta braves cap, an 8x10 i took with me, and my ig-list
shirt.  though i was afraid i would freeze up on actual contact, i did
manage to talk intelligently with them and was warmly received.  i told
amy i loved the new songs, and especially enjoyed her playing the
mandolin.  she said, "well, i'm trying!" and i said, "you're doing a
great job of it!"  i asked when the new album would be out and she said,
"we're going into the studio in september, so it will probably be out in
march or so."  she liked my shirt and said she knew all about it from
the list.  i asked emily if she had been to any of the olympic events,
and she said, "i got to see the women's basketball," and i said, "oh
yeah, my boss was there too."  when i shook their hands i was struck by
how small emily's hand was.  my hands aren't that big but hers were
smaller, and i marveled at how easily she can reach all those notes on
her guitar with such short fingers.  boy, am i glad she does.  anyway,
it was a night i'll never forget, and i've already had my picture with
each of them blown up to 8x10, framed, and they're looking at me right
now!  so that's my encounter...

is kim still out there? cuz we had a really cool discussion on this song
last year....i always interpreted "what would you give for your kid fears"
as not being "gee it would be so great to give up the troubles of adult
life and be a kid again" but rather addressing the fact that as a child
fears loomed so big and real...especially taking the verses into account,
how looming and dark they are...secret staircase, they all know you're
inside...sorta the 'school of hard knocks' theory of life, how you had to
kick and shove your way out of childhood.  but maybe that's because you
couldn't pay me enough to trade my life today for my kid fears.

subject:      re: what are some of your ig encounters?

hi to all in ig land!

my ig meetings are not nearly as exciting as those already
posted by kate and cyndi, however i too have had a chance
to speak with the girls...it was at a record signing in ann arbor,
mi in january of 1991 during the rop tour.  it was a cold, grey
ugly kind of day...the moment that i learned of the signing , i was
heading cross-town to north campus on a university bus for a
art and architecture drawing lab, and i had to decide if i should
skip lab to go (a fairly daring thing to do because labs were
difficult and sometimes impossible to make up depending on what
we were dreawing)  but of course i decided to skip...when i got there
the line was out the door...which was the worst thing about it because
the longer i stood there all but 25 feet away from a & e, the more
excited and nervous i got, so by the time i got up there a felt like
a stammering fool, but i did manage to say hi, and thankyou....my
impressions of the meeting was how skinny amy was....they both
seemed smaller in stature than i imagined, but that just goes to show
how much admiration does for you sense of perception!!  anyway, amy
seemed to be tiring of this event and said very little, but emily was
more chatty.  i said to e, "gosh this has really made my day getting
a chance to say hi and talk to you" and emily respnded "oh, well
that sure was easy".  the show i saw that night was the first time
i ever saw an ig show - it was quite a memorable day to say the least!

so there you go---

i'll admit...this took me a good long while to get!  but i get it now!!!  i
was thinking.."who the heck is mr. e?  mr. emily?  huh?"

but this was the laugh i needed.  you must forgive me.  i'm slow today.  we
had to put our oldest "child" to sleep yesterday.  our 7 year old ferret,
spaz, was totally invaded by cancer.  a huge surprise to us.  my husband
took her out of her cage to play w/ her, and she was unresponsive and cold.
she eventually woke up a little bit, but he rushed her to the vet and the
doctor was just amazed at how much cancer she had.  for a 14 inch ferret,
she had a 4"-5" tumor.  i'm still in mourning.  she was our first animal
that we raised together.  she's survived by our other ferret toonces and 2
cats callie & shelby.  this is the 2nd pet death we've had in the last 4
months.

we have to get out of this rut !

peace,

my opinion...you lose your newbie status after you've been flamed for
something you've said.  or, you lose your newbie 'virginty' when (not to
sound like an old tv show) everybody knows your name....

sorry to disturb all of you, but i am so exited that i had to let out a whoop!
i have been trying to resubscribe to this list for two weeks unsuccessfully at

i sent the exact same e-mail from home that i used this time, but i can't get
subscribed at home...

sent to: listserv@netspace.org
body text: subscribe indigo-girls john cooperider

oh well...

anyone have any ideas why this might be?  i mean i used the exact same letter i
have tried at home about 40 times, and it worked here first try?!

on a note that is actually on the subject of the ig's, thank you to stacy for my
copy of the newport tape!  wonderful memories, and now my page of pictures has
been corrected to note that the first bunch were from "wild horses", not "get
out the map" as it said originally. (thanks jen)

well, back to work...

subject:      educated and lovin' it...

good morning fellow ig'ers:

when i was at the austin concert, i don't know why, but i was just lookin'
up at a&e and thought how much of role model they really are.  i'm very big
on education.  and all i could think of was that here were two women who
went after and achieved a full education - even though they knew that
they're goal in life was music - - not religion or english lit.  there are
so many individuals out there today who could care less about a high school
education.  even more who could care less about college.  they could have
just left high school and drove from coast to coast playing their music and
trying to make it big.  but, no.  they pushed their dream off for 4 more
years to earn an education - not in music, but in religion & english
literature.  i remember complaining about hating calculus and how i'd never
use it in my life.  well, now i understand.

i think this just goes to show, that no matter what you're goal is in life,
a college education can still fulfill your life and make it even more
complete.

i'm willing to be that if emily didn't spend 4 years as a english major -
her lyrics wouldn't be as profound as they are.

so even if you're not going to use your college major in your life - you'll
still benefit from it.

i now know that i had to learn calculus to learn how to think..

still hating calculus,
- jen hall

     this is how most tape trees are organized.  instead of one person
making a bizzilion tapes, it gets divided up into signs of the zodiac.
whatever sign you are, that's the branch of the tree you write to get your
copy of the tape.  all it usually takes is a blank and a return addressed
and stamped envelope.
     i don't have any info about squeaky fromme.  i think she wrote this
after squeaky escaped from jail. i have lots of bootlegs with this song,
but they are mostly older tapes.  the version on no curfews is the best one
i've got.

  hey y'all,

  i just want to say that this was totally my fault.  melissa wrote me
several e-mails and did her best to get this tape asap.  i took a week off
and followed ig through the southwest during the recent demo tour.  when i
finally got home and checked my e-mail i had like 900 messages to wade
through.  it took me a few days to get to melissa's message.  (remeber,
she's the good one, i'm the bad one.)  i think we got it all straightened
out and she should have her tape by tomorrow.  i promise i wont try to
organize another tape tree before taking off to follow the girls on tour,
which i'm hoping to do for a month when map finally comes out!!


                        --sunny

ps.  who spent 3 weeks on the hte tour, so this really was a short one.

i though this would be a good place for me to jump in.  first of all, hello
everybody.  my name is aras and i've been an alcoholic for....no,
wait....i've been an ig fan since i saw the video for ctof sometime in '89.
an arrow was pointed at and directly penetrated the very essence of my soul
and stuff.  lately, however, my interest has waned, and joining the list is
an effort to fire it up again.

so, back to the point.  lately, i have been trying to work out this
resentment that i have toward formal education.  i have a b.a., but feel it
is bs.  i don't regret going to school, but if i had to pay for it, as
opposed to my parents....i would be stuck in major debt working a job i hated
to get out of it.  i consider myself back in school now, the school of life.
and the day i die will be graduation day (hopefully, as opposed to getting
expelled).

i guess everyone needs the official college structure to learn how to think
for themselves, but it's awfully expensive.  why couldn't someone have told
me when i was 18...."you [or your parents] can pay 50 - 150k over the next
four years to one institution, or you can take your thirst for knowledge and
go out into the world and go read and experience and live and fail and get up
and fail and get up and read and experience and live and fail and get up and
fail and keep your head on straight cause you're gonna keep going through
this if you want to be anybody....."

this is so much more valuable to me than sitting in classroom listening to a
boring professor who is forced to teach uninterested college students because
he/she can't get a professional job in that particular field.

because this is not directly ig related, you can e-mail me personally with
your thoughts if you feel this thread doesn't belong here.  thanks, man.
(i'm not a feminist, but i love women.)

wow, the ig have really inspired me to, well, not make good grades, but
just to pursue knowledge.  in high school, i slacked off a great deal
and did not achieve my highest potential.  this summer i really came to
appreciate their music and lyrics, and i have found that it inspires me
to learn as much as i can.  i think that when you have a higher level of
education, it enables you to appreciate their music even more.  i have
noticed that a great deal of their lyrics refer to things that i have
been studying.  i don't think that anyone in my dorm has ever even heard
of ig. (probably because i go to a conservative baptist college in
abilene)  i would probably go crazy if i didn't have this mailing list.
quite frequently, i see or hear something that makes me want to
yell, "hey, that's in an ig song!"  the other day, i was reading an
essay by mary wollstonecraft and i saw the words "milk of human
kindness"(guess the song)  today we read frederick douglass, and i
accidentally went off into my own world daydreaming, when
i heard the teacher say something about the slaves being sold on the
block and i thought of....(can you guess this one?--keyword: block).  my
brother was injured this summer and i really got sick of people asking
me how he was doing.  i got this very strange urge to tell them he was
"closer to fine". :-)  they're old church people, and they probably
would have no earthly idea what i was talking about. sorry this is sooo
looonngg, but i just had to demonstrate how much ig have meant to me.
daydreaming again about meeting them someday....

subject:      a newbie is born

hello list!!

wow!!  this list has blown my (mailbox) doors off!

i am a new listee and internet user, and would like to introduce myself to
the rest of the list.  my name is betsy bertiaux and i am an admitted
"ig-aholic", and this is the closest i can find to a support group (and a
fine one at that!).  i am a life-long seattle resident who has seen "the
girls" at every chance since the '91 bumbershoot, including hte at portland
meadows.  so far i am enjoying this list big-time.

i just got internet access a few weeks ago at work, and the first thing i
did was sign up on this list.  so, flame away (i'm not even sure if i'm
doing this right). i've done little else but read my e-mail while
recovering from bumbershoot.  saturday was a  long day, but worth it.
especially since i was in the front row in front of amy.  and all my
pictures turned out, relative to my camera anyway.  its adorable the way
that amy and emily are so blown away when they play bumbershoot to a packed
house (stadium).  i also caught ani's show and caroline aiken's show; these
women rock!!!

hopefully, this e-mail finds you all well and in a state of "indigo-bliss".

as far as the list shirt goes, amy and emily were given shirts in hampton
beach. i wasn't able to give the shirts to them personally, but i did chat
with russell carter and he took them along with a note i had written about
the list and how the project came together and promised they would get
them. from her comment, i take it she read the note (i hope my penmanship
was ok)

when cyndi first mentioned she had her shirt signed last month, i wrote her
and asked if amy or emily had commented on them and i was glad to hear they
did. i was bummed that i wasn't able to meet the girls and give them the
shirts myself, but it means the world to me that they think the shirts are
cool.

subject:      re: educated and lovin' it

hiya list
    i'm a brand spanking new member (five days now and counting) and today's
message about the importance a&e have put on education struck me.  recently, i
have been completely disgusted with my college experience.  things have become
a huge mess, and to make a long story short, i think i have to stay here for
another two years when all i really want to do is get out and end my
adolecence.  geeze, i'm 21, and i'm sick of being in school like this.
    anyway, the letter about a&e's dedication to their education hit home, and
really, i think, has sunk into this thick scull of mine.  they do have a love
of knowledge this is completely unsnobbish.  they amount of literary,
historical and religious allusions in their songs is staggering, yet it is
almost always done without affectation or pretention.  it is simply a love of
learning, and (thankfully) it's effected me.  i remember amy doing an interview
a while ago (and i have no idea when) and she mentioned southern writer,
faulkner in perticular.  the sound and the fury was one of the most personal
books i've ever, ever read and it helped me face up to truths i wouldn't other
wise have done.  so sometimes, when i'm totally sick of the university and want
to drop out right this second, i remember the value a&e have put on their
education and it helps me stick it out.
    it was nice talking to everyone for the first (but not the last) time.
cari
ps i just wrote a paper for one of my classes, and i actually used the line
"when i was young my people taught me well/give back what you take, or you'll
go to hell."  can't wait to see what my grade is ;)

subject:      speaking up for college

ok, i am *sure* i am not aloen here, but i feel that college does have
value.  a lot of that value depends on many things, like how happy you
are with your school, and what you are looking to get out of it.
i had a good, very good college exerieince.  i know that having the
college on my resume has opeoend doors for me in getting jobs (and
i am not a mindless corp rat either).  college is largely what you
make of it.  teh bulk of my learning was not in hthe classroom but in
my activites and so forth around school.  i was fortunate to be in
a high quality women only shakepseare company.  i worked in sevceral aspects
of the athletic arena, learning much from differente angles, and there
was the wealth of knowledge and experience to be gained from my peers.
these kinds of learnings, i believe at least for myself, could not have
been had in a real life setting..the dorms, the structure of the day,
the fact that i was lucky to have parental support and didnt need to
worry about foregoing many of these things to earn my way through school
(thouhg i did work three work sstudy jobs at the same time during my
senior year)

and i know people who went to the same school and hated it.  i hear
similar things from people at all schools.  maybe college isnt for
everyone, nor is every college the right fit for every student, but
i find it interesting how many people are trashing the very notion of
college.

natrually it all depends on what you want to do in life, but the sad
fact is that in many ways a college degree is crucial to work, and
again i am not talking about corporate hell.

just two cents from someone who was a fortunate one in her college
experience.

its true that you will run into this a lot in collage.  i have a great deal of
resentment for the way some people pushed me around in collage because they
thought it made them seem important to control collage students. but, remember
also that a lot of times you will run into some of the most distinguised
persons in their field in collage. people who have retired from their
professional life, and have gone into teaching in order to futher contribute,
or give something back to society. people like barbra jordan, who taught for
years at the university of texas after leaving politics.

amy you are not alone. i too feel my college education was an incredibly
positive experience. maybe it's because i went later in life when i had a
better idea of why i was there and what i wanted to do (started at age 26).
or perhaps it's because i went to a totally "non-traditional" school. don't
ask me my gpa because i didn't get one. exams: huh? lecture halls: hello?
half the budget going to the football team? not there. my transcript is all
narrative as were the comments on the countless papers and projects and
speeches i did while there (i know for a fact that i did more work in my
undergrad program than most grad programs i am aware of). in other words:
no letter grades were given. the "go out into the world and go read and
experience and live and fail and get up and fail and get up and read and
experience and live and fail and get up and fail and keep your head on
straight cause you're gonna keep going through this if you want to be
anybody" experience that aras longs for is one i had at my school.

education isn't about being crammed full of information; it's about
allowing things to be drawn from inside of you. it's not about discovering
what you know; it's about discovering what you don't know and growing
comfortable with that.

the piece of paper i got as the result of all my work is one i treasure. it
has not only gotten me places but it has given me the confidence to take on
even more challenges.

no experience should be viewed as a waste. in every thing there are
lessons. sometimes you just have to look a little harder for them.

subject:      thank god for college (and the ig..)

i should say i hate being in college, but even though i *do* go through
periods when i find a very allusive job offer or an incredible show in
boston during finals week, i wouldn't trade college for anything.
     a bit of background. i grew up in the homophobic, depressed economy,
mill town of lewiston me. i hated it (i actually spent the first eight years
in a rural suburb called lisbon).  i had been told countless times, due to
my disability that i should just look for a easy job, secretary or mill
worker or mcdonalds or something that lame instead of trying to go into
video production or broadcast journalism. i was told this as a seventeen
year old who had no self esteem, who was dealing with a slew of emotional
problems, who scored very well on his sat's and who had produced some
projects at a local television station.
    i got accepted to umaine, but it was really my last choice, i would have
dreamed to go to hampshire, umass amherst or boston univ. but my grades were
horrible and i barely got into um. people said i would flunk out.
    i began to believe them before i even left. one of the things i did that
gave me the most confidence was traveling to newport to see the ig before
college started. it was a horrible storm, but still an incredible show and
definite view of how life was truly like outside le3wiston, without out my
parents.
    that was over four years ago. i have since been invited and completed an
honors thesis. (only 1% of the student body @ umaine does that!) been on the
deans list, seen stephen king eating at the local pizza parlor, had a class
with kurt vonnegut. right now i am juggling two jobs consulting on html,
plus if it weren't for college, i would have never met some of the most
influencial people in my life. yes i have met a+e, but that isn't what i
mean. i mean to go from not even knowing how to turn on a computer to
running a medical /disabled listserv, to meeting an author named john
hockenberry, who is a mentor (and the only person i've consistenly traveled
further to see than the ig, but i would have been tied if i went to the rock
for aids benefit last month -- but 10 am flights are prohibitive of that...)
i would have never even thought about trying if i never went to school here.
maybe this is because it took me college to assess a certain amount of self
esteem, but college has opened more possibilities as long as i am willing
to exert myself and make them realities! college is something that is tool,
i believe when i graduate, i will have decided what i needed to study, what
*i* needed to experience to make my self make college work for me. i also
know i am really lucky to have the opportunity to pursue a english major
with three minors, but i feel i will be very competitive in the work place
--
and without college, i would never have been on this list.
(and met sooo many cool list members!)

        hi y'all...i'm going to address both the current threads because for
me, they are both intricately linked...
        in my four years at umass-amherst i had the opportunity to work with
the girls on four different occasions at various venues throughout the
pioneer valley.
        i am not going to give a detailed play-by-play because it would take
up way too much space, but i did get to spend time with both of them both
before the shows and after...and had a couple of rather interesting
conversations with amy.
        tying in to the whole college thing...i was able to remain in the
concert biz for the year following my graduation and again caught up with
the girls two more times that year...
        and this year, by a very, very odd quirk of fate, i ended up
backstage at the nff...

        that's all folks...i have dozens of ig memories (okay, maybe not
dozens, but quite a few)...

        peace all...   jen

hear, hear! i recommend a book called _the teenage liberation handbook_ to
anyone who agrees (or disagrees, for that matter!) with this statement. it is
not just for teenagers, but for anyone who wants to free her mind with or
without (though, as author grace llewellyn explains, preferably without) school.

i agree, but in many fields being a professor *is* a professional job.

this is a cool thread...i'm in high school, and sometimes i get off onto huge
thought-patterns...what exactly is the point of going through school and
school and school, where will i be at the end of it?  it's also moments like
right now, when i'm putting off writing essays and doing reading assignments,
that i really need a little indigo push.  music, esp. ig music, helps tie
together what i'm learning in school and what i'm learning in life and makes
me remember the value of what i'm getting out of this whole getting older
business and the value of education.  plus, it's pretty darn fun to find igc
in all schoolwork...my essay is supposed to be about "my experience with
religion and religions" and d'ya know what the first thing that popped into
my head was?  the fact that since getting way into ig (or maybe as a
coincidental good-timing thing) i've felt more spiritual and more able to
connect with some sort of higher power than ever before.
okay, sorry for the ramble guys :)

subject:      re: what are some of your ig encounters?

hi everyone : )

i haven't posted in a while due to my trying to get used to my new schedule
as a full-time grad student...  and i'm desperately trying to keep up with
all the mail *help!*

my ig encounter was definitely not as great as those i have read from you
lucky, lucky listees.  but i figured if anything, someone would get a good
laugh, and i would possibly come to terms with my missed opportunity.

anyway, it was april 22, 1991 at the palace theater in albany, ny.  the girls
had just finished their performance and my friends and i waited outside the
side door where the roadies were bringing out the equipment.  finally after
about 20 minutes, a&e came out and i started jumping up and down like a
little schoolgirl or something and must have looked like a complete idiot.  i
came unequipped with anything for them to sign so they both had to squeeze
their signatures on my itty-bitty ticket stub.  and genius that i am, all i
could think to say was "great hat" to amy (who was wearing a cool-looking
black velvet with floral pattern hat).  she said "thanks" and that was it.
why that happened i don't know.  i was overcome with so much excitement
about meeting them that i just freaked.  afterward, with a slap on my
forehead and a "d'oh" a la homer simpson, i walked away thinking about what a
stupid fool i was.

wow, that was kind of cathartic for me, thanks for letting me write that down
: )

hope everyone who is back to school has a great semester and everyone else,
well, i guess, enjoys not being in school ; )

yes yes yes yes. definitely.
i went to u. of penn and they told us the first week that every class
was supposed to further develop your critical thinking skills, and in
the eval form at the end of every class for four years it asked, did
this class improve your critical thinking? but i had to wonder, is
critical thinking a thing that can be institutionalized like that? it
would seem not just unlikely, but almost oxymoronical. in college, a
component of critical thinking should be to ask yourself frequently:
along with some useful knowledge, what is this school force-feeding me
that's actually a load of bull?

retrospectively bad college experience: i got really into ig in august
'91. at the school's april '91 "spring fling" some friends asked me if i
wanted to go hear some band called the indigo girls play. tickets were
obscenely cheap like $6 but  i'd never heard of them at that point
except some piece on tv that said they were christian-influenced, (so
i'm thinking amy grant), so i said i'll pass. doh! right there on
campus!

subject:      college (nigc)

hey y'all -
        i am emerging from my lair of lurkdom to make two points pertaining to the
discussion about college education that no one seems to have made yet:
        1.) the point of college is probably more to learn how to think about a
problem than to be forced to memorize the solution.  if you know how to look
at a problem you are nine/tenths of the way to solving it, and that is a skill
very difficult to learn from a book.  you learn by interacting with people who
can see things in different ways and teach you to do the same.  the course
material is of secondary importance.
        2.) the absolutely best thing about college is the people you meet, and the
friends you make!  there is no other time in your life (or at least there
hasn't been in mine) a chance to live in the same place with about fifty of
your best friends, all of whom are different but who have in common with you
an interest in learning and education and also in having a really good time
whenever possible.  the work is a drag for sure, but overall it is a blast.
        sorry this is long!  i feel strongly about it!  thanks for listening/reading.
        love, lizzie

    i have a few bootleg videos and tv appearences from way back.  i love
to watch the whole evolution of both amy and emily on video.  in fact, i
was watching an old video of amy doing strange fire and she looked so
fresh.  there was so much enthusiasm from her doing this song.  i think it
was from the really early days when this song was still kinda new.
anyways, this and the tons of requests i've been getting for copies of my
various videos has caused me to start to work on a compilation video much
like no curfews.  caution:  do not get excited just yet.  this is still in
the planning stages and i'm still going through my tapes to pick and choose
those special preformances.  it will be a while.  i'm thinking this would
be a great christmas thing and i should be able to complete it by then,
reasonably.
     what i need now are people to think about whether or not they'd be
able to be a branch on the video tape tree.  you must have 2 vcrs and the
cables to connect them to record one to another.  if you can do this and
are willing to do this and expect to still be around in a couple of months,
then drop me a line w/ subject line: video tree dubber.  i am gonna need a
lot of volunteers for this to fly.
     i promise i wont take any trips until this is done and i'm hoping to
get it done and in place before the student type people leave for x-mas
break when they wont have accounts.
     if any of you have ig video and want to contribute, drop me a line.
and if any of you have suggestions for this video (like the david letterman
appearence where they do closer to fine and emily is wearing this great
pink shirt and she looks so cute) then drop me a line.
     i have two volunteers already, but i'll need like 12 more at least.  help?

hey folks!

sorry for the nigc (ahem... not really), but if you don't want to read, you can
delete me now.  although, i figured some of y'all might appreciate this.

i just wanted to say that a partner in crime and i went to see an italian movie
called "il postino (the postman)" --- ya know, the one that was nominated for
all those oscars or something :) --- friday night and it was really great!!
basically, the whole theater agreed... 'cause i overheard lots of conversations
on the way out  :)  i just wanted to say that if this movie plays where you are,
you should hop on over to the theater and see it.  it was supposed to come out
on video (here in the u.s.) during the summer, but didn't.  not sure if it will
be released, but i'm glad i got to see it.  it sure is better than any american
film i've seen recently.  just wanted to let y'all know so you could check it
out.  trust me, it's worth it.  it has a lot of humor and cool poetry, among
other things.

peace and subtitles,
tamara

you know, i had a bunch of stuff i wanted to say about college and
education and values and priorities, but it all sounded pretentious and i
was afraid my meaning would be misconstrued as being a big ole pooper, so
i will keep it to myself.  but i do want to say that i hope people are
going about their educations and degrees and dreams for the sake of
knowledge, or at least are realistic about what they hope to gain from
college.  the way my priorities panned out, back five years ago when i was
making the decisions that are relevant today, i opted for useful degree
over fun degree.  luckily nursing is a field that is both interesting and
useful, so i'm okay, but i do hope that one day when i retire (or i'm rich
and famous! haa!) i can go back to college and get a real liberal arts
degree.  there really is something to be said for setting aside some time
to immerse yourself in the writings of the great thinkers of our age, and
i really missed out on that opportunity by making the choice i did.  i
have had a few humanities courses to round out the requirements for my bsn
and i have enjoyed them greatly....and such as my personal finances were
and are, i would be in a world of hurt right now if i were facing
graduation in 9 months with the english degree i sometimes yearn for...but
again, i am glad i took the route i did.  of course, i realize (and am
doing this now, every day that i can) that there is a vast amount of
education to be found all around, every day, in the literature, arts, the
people we encounter, and the experiences we find ourselves in, and i
continue to try to educate myself as wholly as possible in the areas
nursing school isn't able to touch.  i try to surround myself with
stimulating and intelligent people, and learn as much as i can, but i
still think that there are some valuable resources to be found in the
professionals and intellects that chose to teach at universities (although
it is certainly a matter of opinion just how many profs are professionals
and/or intellects) and the relevance of any given course of study can be
as widespread as you want it to be (as jen succinctly put it in her point
about calculus).

geez, i ended up sounding like a pretentious ole bag o wind anyway.
sorry.  you get my point. (you know my daddy always says, an ounce of
pretention is worth a pound of manure...)

i just want you all to know that i am deleting all of your encounters!
yes i am bitter!  i missed the chance of a lifetime when my friend (ha!)
ed got tix for their show in tacoma in 90 (i think) and i didn't and after
the concert their car got broken into...after the police came out and
everything, they were getting ready to leave, the parking lot was empty
(everyone's gone someplace...) and what to his wondering eyes should
appear but two indigo girls getting into their tour bus.  they talked to
him and his friends for half an hour!  so i am bitter.  ptttht.

subject:      education v. long ... (nigc)

ok all i just gotta jump on the wagon here

        in england the education sysytem is somewhat different to that of
the usa in as much as that a university degree is more or less funded for
you. though people still walk away with big debts. as i understand it in
the us the degree is 100% funded by the student ? ( please correct me if
i'm wrong )

        i loved education, eventually, but it took me years to get there.
i will also admit that prolonged education is not for everyone. as
someone who graduated little more than 12 months ago and in that space of
time has relocated 2 for work, is working for a huge multinational
company and got married i can certainly say i use what i learnt. i use my
qualifiaction to get my job, my education to do my job i guess that is
because i do what i learnt, i also take a lot of pride in what i do now
responsiblity is a scary thing. however i use the social skills and life
skills such as running a home and meeting new people on a business and
social scale much more - these are the things that make me what i am and
drive me to be what i want to be.

        i miss my college life like hell - i miss not knowing any one of
15 people who wall round a corner. however i could not ever work as long
and as hard as i did to get my degree ever again. i burnt out and damn
near droped on the floor with geman measles 3 days before my course
finished. i sat 1 exam with 100 degree fever and prob. dripped 3 punt of
fluid under my chair ...

        i am however very proud of my achievement and would do it all
again tomorrow. what blows my mind is the insignificance of it all now.
when i went for job interviews people were more interested in my work
experience than my studies and from now on that will always be the case ...

        i know i could be in exactley the same place i am now if i had
left school and go onto work from a younger age but the memories and the
heartache ( plus the fact this is where i was introduce to ig ) make the
experience all worth while

if you got this far thanks
jules

        when you learn to love yourself
        you will dissolve all the stones that are cast ..

but why do you necessarily need to submit to being graded like a pound of
hamburger meat in order to read good books? the last time i checked, there was
this wonderful place just a short walk away from my house called a "library".
you can go there whenever you want, spend as much or as little time there as
you want, read whichever books there you choose, and there's no one to look
over you shoulder, ask you to write essays on "themes of class, race, and
gender in _moby dick_" or whatnot, or give you an f if you don't do it the
way they like it.

one of the very worst things that the american school system does is to
convince its subj^h^h^h^hstudents that learning can only be secured in special
places and special times, only with the help of semi-qualified teacher-people.
when you go to school and learn that the only way to learn english is to
write five-paragraph persuasive essays in a room with pale-green walls and hard
chairs, that the only way to learn biology is to dissect dead cats in a lab-
oratory, that the only way to learn *anything* is to have someone recite it to
you till they're blue in the face, then you gradually begin to lose your desire
to read a good story, to watch the squirrels frolic in your yard, to pursue
truth and beauty without the sanction of institutional authority. this is a
tragedy beyond belief.

subject:      re: favorite ig encounters

greetings to all in indigo land!

i had the great fortune of meeting both amy and emily 3 times in the past
year and a half.  the fist time was in burlington, vt in april of 1995.
i spoke to emily and got her autograph as she was running into soundcheck
late ("i gotta go now or amy's gonna kill me.")  i met emily again after
the show and my friend and i, who loves to sew, made amy and emily boxer
shorts and wrote them a little note each.  emily walked near us, stopped
and smiled and then gestured to us to come over to her.  we walked over
with smiles galore and told her how much we loved the show.  we asked her
if we could give her something we made for her and amy and she said yes.
she looked in the bag and pulled out the boxers and said, "boxers, cool
thanks a lot 'yall" she then put her arms around us and posed for a
picture and said she hoped we got to go to tomorrow's show at brown.

about 20 minutes later amy came out, walked right towards me and i couldn't
say anything at first, i was paralized with anxiety and with the fact that
amy was truly standing next to me.   i said that it was a great show and
how much their music means to me and she nodded and smiled and said thanks.
i sheepishly asked her to sign my po2 cd single whcih emily signed that
afternoon and she obliged.  i wanted to say something important, but all i
could get out was i really like the way your hair looks in that picture, i
wish i could get mine to look like that.  dumb comment deb  she looked at
the picture, smiled at me and said "shave your head and let it grow, that's
what i did."  words of wisdom on hairstlyes from amy, who whould have ever
thunk it :) !  i said we would be going to the brown show the next night and
she was very nice and said well i hope you enjoyed the show and will like
tomorrows too, take care y'all.

then next night at brown after the show my friend and i were tearing down
the stage helping the roadies.  i carried the girls guitar cases to the
truck and hung out with mm for a while backstage.  emily had already left
and i was standing by the back door resting and amy walked around the
corner and looked right at me, smiled and said hi as she walked by.  i
walked up the stairs behind her and tapped her on the shoulder and asked
her if emily gave her the boxers from last night and she said yeah, i said
my friend and i made them and she was like, thanks a lot, that was really
sweet of y'all take care.

this year, i drove down to atlanta for pride cause i needed an ig fix bad.
i went to see michelle malone play at eddie's attic at 7 and 10.  i was
sitting at the end of the bar and i turned around and emily was standing at
the door, 15 feet from me. i couldn't belive it.  what are the chances of
someone from massachusetts in atlanta for 3 days running into an indigo girl
at eddie's attic?  i didn't want to cause a stir cause it was a friday nite,
and she was hanging out with frineds, so as i was walking by to go to the
ladies room i stopped and said hello and had a brief conversation about
how i drove from mass to come to pride and finally visit atlanta and how
beautiful it was and that i felt really welcome there, i told her that i
now knew exactly what she meant in southland in the springtime and she
smiled and nodded and was like i'm really glad you like it here it's a
great place to live. i said i looked forward to seeing her and amy play
tomorrow.  she smiled, shook my hand and hoped that i had a good visit.
i ended up playing pool with the bouncer from eddie's after the show and
emily and her friends were playing at the next table. it was really relaxed
and cool, cause i didn't even think twice about emily being there, i just
was myself and everyone there just let her be and it was very respectful.

on sunday at pride after the girls did their set i was hanging around the
back area of the stage and all of a sudden amy walked over to the fence
and started signing autographs and i walked over and asked her if she would
sign my pride program and i talked to her for a bit and shook her hand, took
a few pictures.  it was really cool, i never expected to meet either of them
again, never mind in atlanta, that was a real treat.

well, now that i have written a book i guess i will sign off.

thanks to everyone for their great stories.  keep them coming!

take care and peace!

subject:      i am just a bad person, it seems... (nigc and longish..)

hello, once again.
      you know, it has begun to worry me that this format has become my
"usual"... i just came on to say (you guessed it) that if i owe you anything
you should write... nicholas, john, sunny, paula... your stuff is going out
today.  kate g.- one more apology.  other kate, (the sesame street one) i
don't have your address around but need to talk to you, so please write.
anyone else, just write to me and tell me... i am trying to square
everything away.
      on an even scarier note, i added up all the cd's i've gotten this
month, and since september 1 i have gotten 27.  i'm serious.  i need help! :0
7 of them were free, though... had to share that.  i am addicted.  help! :0

      a few personal notes... p-head, i really want to talk to you...
hopefully i can write when i get home from the post office.  laughagus, thank
you for visiting!  we didn't get back until 7:30ish, so sorry we didn't hook
up later.  dr. l., i hope st. louis is treating you well.  miss you and all
that good stuff. =}  dana, have been totally digging your tape... a lot of it
is going to make it onto my tape for that *special* someone. =)
      as usual, michelle malone is god and we should all remember to regard
her as such. =)  if anyone has any tapes or photos or _anything_ of her, i
will do lots of strange favours for copies! :0
      i am still planning to make my locals comp, so if you're in a band or
like a band in your area or play the harmonica really well or something,
please tell me; i want to include you on my compilation.  i want to get that
done this month.
      "a + e = ig" bumper stickers are still going to happen; i just have to
have them printed.  as soon as they're ready i'll send you all the
information you need to get your very own! =)  also, if anyone can think of
anything catchy for a michelle malone bumper sticker, let me know. =)  if you
have an awesome idea i'll have them printed and give a you a dozen or so of
them free for the idea. =)
      last thing, i promise!  i have been lost for the last 3 months (i still
have unread mail from june!) so if any kind soul has any urge to dub newport
or bumbershoot or any of the new shows (besides the boathouse, b/c my darling
p-head has done such a wunnerful job of spoiling me...) i will be glad to
trade or send a blank.
      okay, i'm off now.  i hope that sums everything up. =)  love
everybodee! =)  peace, love, and butter biscuts, sarah

okay, i have to speak up because i'm a college english professor.  i second
jen hall's comment.  you get out what you put in.  i love teaching, but i
have the worst time with students who are in my class when they don't want
to be.  it's not fun for them or me.  i wish 18-year-olds wouldn't go to
college if they are doing it just because they don't know what else to do or
because they want the social scene.  i wish they would join the americorps
or something while they decide what they want to do.  it's hard to get a lot
out of a college education if you don't know what it is that you want to get
out of it!!

it'll always be there, so what's the harm in working or volunteering first
after high school?  just don't be afraid to go back to school if you decide
that's what you want.

subject:      benefits of college...

now some might think that i'm biased in this discussion because i actually
teach at a university, but in all reality i like where i'm at because i
like what i'm doing.  i don't do this because i can't find a job in my
"profession" or because "those who can't, teach".  :)

quite frankly, i would not be here on this list were it not for college.
i, like so many others of the people on this list, come from a very
conservative, rural area of the us.  i was fortunate enough to be an
excellent student-athlete in hs and got recruited to one of the top liberal
arts colleges in the country (if not the world).  this opened my eyes to
many things.  not only were there opportunities i had never considered,
there were things in the world that i didn't know about!

the classes i took opened my eyes to the world of education, the friends i
met opened my eyes to so much more.  (the ig, me, different religions,
different cultures)  i can more or less guarantee that had i not gone to
college i would be sitting in an economically depressed area of the country
being miserable.

i recently went to my 10 year hs reunion and there were plenty of people
there who were unemployed, on welfare, on drugs, closeminded bigots or who
hadn't really grown or matured since hs.  it was sad to see.  and although
a college degree no longer guarantees the holder a job, i think it's
invaluable in so many other ways.

someone said it very early on in this discussion, like everything else
higher education is what you make of it yourself.  its not for
everyone, its not a guarentee.

that having been said, chalk a vote up in favor of college.

its been my experience that no matter what you study you are better
off for it in the long run, even if there is no direct relevance to
your life.  for example i can't count the number of times mr.
greenwald's latin that i struggled through back at good ol' marquette
high has aided me in my futher studies of physics.  it simply opened
my mind up to new way of thinking.

college provides an opportunity to expand your base of knowledge, to
open yourself up to challenges you would never race in the real
world(tm).  calculus may seem irrelevant now, but being exposed to
thinking in terms of rates (derivitives) and sums (integrals) is a
definate survival skill.  ask yourself how fast is the national debt
growing and what does that mean for the next 20 years and you'll see
what i mean!

the real world is much like graduate school -- you study something
very intensely and you become an expert in it.  the real world puts no
restrictions on what you can learn, but it does put practical
constraints!  honestly, how likely is someone to study the details of
iambic pentameter after a day of hard work?  how likely is it a
co-worker will do the same so there is someone to ask questions when
you inevitablely get stuck?  how many people are so self-motivated
that they will work through their frustrations when there is no
penalty for failure?

finally, don't discount the real life aspects of college, they are
plentiful.  admittedly the lifestyle is not the same as for a
non-student; however, things are hardly easy.  i'll spare you the stories ;)

subject:      nigc:  education: an opinion (long and flammable)

how timely.
i work in higher education and all the students are back on campus giving
their opinions on college and it appears to be a popular theme with this
list.  since education is an area i am most passionate about i feel i should
comment, as my head is spinning due to the number of posts and opinions on
this number.

i was particularly struck by the following statement made by a listee:
"this (life experience) is so much more valuable to me then sitting in a
classroom listening to a boring professor who is forced to teach uninterested
college students because he/she can't get a job in that particular field."

while i respect everyone's right to an opinion, i feel the need to take issue
with this statement.

1.  "professors who are forced to teach...because he/she can't find a job in
that particular field."
many (i cannot speak for all, just the ones i know) professors teach because
that is what they want to do, not because they have to do it.  my professional
goal in life is to teach political science on the college level.  i have
a passion for the discipline that is insurmountable and a geniune love of
academia.  it is in this environment in which i thrive and feel most happy.
i want to teach as an end, not because of lack of employment elsewhere.  and
with the scarce amount of jobs in academia nowadays, (ask any human resources
person at a college how many applicants they get for 1 open teaching position)
i would venture to guess you would find more ph.d's who want to teach in
non-teaching fields then you would expect.

2.  is college just "sitting in a boring classroom"?
if it is for some then i am truly sorry.  for me college was a time of
exploration and new experiences and i reveled in every aspect of it.  i studied
as many different disciplines as i could, made new friends, got involved
politically and socially, and worked.  i could see myself growing as a person
rather rapidly and enjoyed it.

i agree with everyone who says true education is life.  to quote the phi beta
kappa motto "love of learning is love of life."  i love being alive.  being
alive for me is learning and growing and experincing life.  i am always seeking
new information and new experiences.  the boundry between formal and informal
education is awfully blurry to me, it seems like a technicality.

i understand that there is a "system" or "formula for success" designated by
society.  you need to go to college to get x degree to get x job.  but
is this really the driving force behind motivations for a college education?
this sounds awfully alientating and dualistic and it would be a terrible shame
if this is really true.  there is a game aspect to the whole college thing,
i admit that, but shouldn't that be secondary to the general desire to live
and learn?

i'm not saying college is for everyone or that you need a college edcation to
be educated (or to live for that matter).  a college degree isn't going to
get you a job.  a diploma isn't the gaurnteed ticket (and now with all the
studies showing the decline in value of a ba/bs over the past 40 years) to
anything.  in the end every individual is responsible for their own life.
who you are as a person is what will carry you.  college is a great opportunity
to grow as a person.

sure i've had professors who sucked, grades that i disagreed with, classes that
i hated (calc. like jen!), parental pressure, and general stress... but that
is part of life and part of college.  it is not the end or point of college
though.

if one truely hates the system, and thinks the rat race is all there is, if
one thinks grades are pointless, school is useless and a waste of time and
money, then leave.  get out.  no one is forcing you to stay there.
if you find no redeming qualities in the education system whatsoever and think
it is all a big sham, then move on to something else.  if, however, you are
like a lot of the students that i work with that are just a bit stressed and
overwhelmed with the new school year and all, find something good in your
college experience and hold on to that.  it will keep you going...

"education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to
time that nothing worth knowing can be taught"  oscar wilde

"it must be lived, learned, and embraced- both good and bad."

yeah,  but did you ever notice that you were a pretty big jerk in
high school as well? i think everybody is. you can't help it. looking
back i realize that i stomped all over feelings, looked down on
certain people, and was basically so self-absorbed that i never
quite was able to put myself in the shoes of others,
although i thought i was so liberal compared to the
rest of the students. and i also noticed that people who said
they hated intolerance and bigotry tended to be  extremely intolerant of
my  "christian values" and other beliefs.  so anyway, the point is
that i think most people are jerks at age 16-19, although they may
not realize it, and thats why highschool sucks. just a couple o'
pennies for y'all.

feelin' funny and free,

jody

"skipping stones, we know the price now, any sin will do" --a.r.

i used to think the lyrics in this line were ... "innocence will do"
amy's slurry speech patterns though most times 'rockin' lend themselves
to misinterpretation. then i started wondering if it was her intention
that it sound like "innocence" because essentially, that is what the line
(to me) *is* saying. when we were young and naive we threw stones, or
"acted badly" now we know what the reprecussions from those actions can
be, are. at least that is my take on it. and i agree that everyone
interprets according to their own life experience. we take from
everything that which we need at the time. that being said let me
shamelessly add, i was a mere bic lighter in a pitch black void until i
heard the indigo girls, then.... it all made sense. thanks for the light
girls. (and i don't even smoke!)  -- kim in north vancouver

i was taught that learning is a life long process. i was taught that my
formal education would simply serve as a solid foundation for what it is i
wanted to do and where it is i wanted to go; it wasn't labeled a guarantee
of those things. that message was delivered through out my life from my
parents to my 8th grade english teacher to the president of my college.

perhaps your educational experience wasn't/isn't the greatest but there are
schools out there that have different philosophies. there are schools that
know that the true meaning of "educate" is "to draw out" not "cram in".
there are teachers who are experts in their subjects and find joy in just
sharing what they know. there are teachers who aren't so interested in the
"right answer" as they are in caring about _your_ processes and guiding you
to discover _your_ truths.

if you are in a system that you feel fit to term "institutional" get out
and look elsewhere. there are wonderful schools across this county that
would welcome you.

but it's not just books that we need to learn; i can't walk to the library

literature who helps me think about more than i thought of all by myself
in my bedroom reading my book....and i have a few friends who are willing

subject:      sotw: kid fears

see kristen? i promised and here i am fulfilling it... only about 3 weeks
late... :-)
        kid fears is <tracy hides under her computer desk> on of my 5
*least* favorite ig songs. stop throwing things at me and let me finish..
        that said, however, i think it is a good song.. i just do not happen
to like it. respect and dislike are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
        to me it generally strikes me considering what our fears were as
kids, compared to those we face today.  now, i happen to have danced through
a very dull childhood with nothing in particular that would ever get me
invited on oprah... so perhaps this is important ... but when she sings,
"what would you give for your kids fears" i think about the fears as a kid
(ohmygawdmylifeisover i can't get those jeans, ohmygawdmylifeisover i have
to go to bed early...) compared with today's (which bill can i let slide...
how can i get back into school....) and think to myself, "well bob, i'll
trade 3 adult bill concerns for 1 childhood worry about whether making that
face does risk permanent disfigurement" and that's what i would give for my
kid fears... :-)
        then again, since i don't really like the song <ducks, crawls on her
belly, hides under a rock> i do not listen to it a lot... so i probably do
not know what i am talking about... not that y'all would think this was
different. :-)

always imowo;

i just got mm's "new experience" and am in love, especially with the 'bonus

has out that are more geared toward this kind of acoustic?  i like the other
tracks too, but there is something so haunting about these songs.

also, i am thinking about getting an ani difranco cd...anyone have a
suggestion as to what to start off with?  thanks y'all!

amy, imho ani difranco deserves the "genious" status in my book!! what
talent, energy and the wonderful ability to write songs that speak to us
without masks. pretty much sings whatever is on her mind!!  if you were to
only buy one ani disc, (hope you don't have that limit!) pick up the "not a
pretty girl" c.d.
i think my favorite song on the disc is "32 flavors."  (enjoy!)  stacy.

regarding my current feelings towards formal education (i don't think highly
of it), i thought i'd annoy you (possibly entertain you) with a song i wrote
a while back:

teach me

going back to school in a universal nature
i'm looking to learn about a lot of new features
the bookshelves of the world are crowded indeed
i've tapped a tiny corner, i've sown a coupla seeds

teach me make me grow
show me let me know
have me in your midst
keep me on your list

walking through the crowds, i pick out a few signs
i think about some things, they diverge along different lines
then it all comes together, and as i've heard them say
i have seen the light (the light) and have a brighter day

teach me....

i want to change the world, but i'm changing myself
it feels much better to know, my part actually helps, my part actually helps
i see it can.... (exuberant drum fill)

teach me....

subject:      education

well, i certainly didn't mean for this to be such a big topic, but i'm
glad.  and i only have one comment that should make everyone understand why
education (education - not necessarily college) is so important.  i'm about
to be offered a job for $20,000 more then i make here at compaq.  why am i
being offered so much?  because i have a bachelors degree, a masters degree,
and a computer network industry certification called a cne.  this company
offers its pay based on what computer certification you have.  the cne is a
certification by novell, and i will be obtaining certification in microsoft
products.  the more certification i get - the more i make.  and the fact
that i have a masters degree only makes me more money.

so, i'll admit - college is not for everyone.  hell, i took off 2 years
after high school before deciding to go to undergraduate school.  but, i'm
certainly making more money and will be happier (and no, i'm not saying
money=happiness) in this new job.

so, for those of you in school.  try to get as much out of it as possible.
take this opportunity to learn as much as possible.  and formal education
is not always the answer.  tech schools are great, self study options are
good if that's what you're into, or any other options you choose for
education.  formal education is just more complete and creates a more well
rounded person, imho.  especially in the computer industry.  there are many
opportunities for certification; however, many companies still won't look
at ya unless you have at least an undergraduate degree.

so, take it for what it's worth.  if you put forth the effort, it'll
eventually pay off - - but you have to work for yourself.  nobody is just
going to hand it to you.

good luck,
- jen hall

hey everybody!!

i haven't posted in awhile but i thought i had to tell everyone my great
story of indigo luck!  the tickets for the woody guthrrie tribute show in
cleveland featuring the girls as well as ani and springsteen sold-out in
less than 2 minutes. i called the rock n'roll hall of fame the next day and
told them i was very upset because i was a member and couldn't get through
on the member phone line to order tickets.  she explained to me that since
all the performers were playing for free they all requsted x number of
tickets and the tv station needed tickets because they were taping it.  this
left only about 500 seats to be sold to the general public.  she said that
they were in the process of trying to retain tickets from the performers and
tv station & if anything opened up she'd call me.  well i got a call today
and i have my two tickets :)!!!  kellie from the list is coming with me! i'm
so excited!! i guess providence is smiling on me with his sweet face!!!

by the way the new r.e.m. is unbelievable.  the best since out of time.
dare i say better??  i'll let you know with a couple more listens!

have an indigo day!

subject:      nigc: happenings in congress...

i was just going to send this to my pal corinne and utah but figured that
there is a large group of people interested in gay rights that might want
to know this so here it is:

today (tuesday the 10th of sept.) the us senate passed by a 85-14 vote
the "denfense of marriage act" which prohibts social security, veterns
and similar federal beneifts  for spouses in same sex marriages if
they become legal in any state. (hawaii is working on it.)  it has already
passed the house and is on the way to the president who has stated on past
occassion that he would sign it.  the bill also says that other states
don't have to recognize same sex marriages from other states (i thought
this was illegal according to the full faith and credit clause of the us
constitution but...).

opponents of the bill will appeal it in the courts.

during the debate sen. byrd (who usually does really cool filabusters and
has the right opinion on things like ehanced recission) read from the bible
and stated that same sex marriage was absurd and flew in the face of thousands
of years of social stablity that traditional maarriage has afforded human
civilazation.  that is almost a direct quotation.
(byrd is a dem. from west virginia)

sen. carol mosley braun liked the bill to the ban on inter-racial marriages
which was law in 16 states until the supreme court struck it down in 1967.

she is also a democrat and the only african american in congress and from
illonois i believe.

sen. ted kennedy (d-mass.) called the bill "in denfense of endangered republicans act (i chuckle) earlier.  he introduced a second bill which the president
supports that is supposed to be voted on today which makes job discrimation
on the basis of sexual orientation illegal.  i have not yet heard if that
passed the senate yet.

that is your capitol hill update.
and i can't even report it without editorializing!  that is why i am not a
reporter!

subject:      college & real life - the education thread got me too...

hi gang,

since everyone's talking about education, yeah, college was worth while!
it gave me opportunities to see the ig's play!!!!  :)  but now i'm a bit
further into real life, well, med school anyway, and i'm thinking more
and more about how great college was.  i'm in culture shock here - i went
to brown, a pretty liberal, open-minded kind of place, and now i don't know
whether it's my med school or the entire medical profession, but they
seem to attract rather conservative people here.  not only conservative
in the political sense, but more in the social kind of sense.  i hang out
with people who just don't get feminism... and people who make homophobic
cracks at any chance they can - and then claim they're not remotely
homophobic when i call them on it!  i'm not used to that kind of
reaction.  for me, college was a wonderful place that taught acceptance
of all things, very different indeed from most of the world.

sorry for wasting bandwidth, folks...  i'm new on the list but i'm
assuming that most ig-listeners would be pretty open-minded...  it seems
like the only place i have right now to vent about such things -- and
this education thread sort of almost gave me a reasonable tie-in to do
it.

so nice to know that i'm not the only one who noticed this.  this
doesn't just apply to high school either.  even now when i am around
non-christian people, i feel like i have to explain why i have chosen
to follow what they term as an "intolorant religion."  some even
invalidate anything i say or do simply because i'm a christian and

subject:      ig encounters

        hi y'all...someone mentioned to me that my post about having met
and/or worked with the girls a few times sounded a bit flip.  i apologize if
this tone was portrayed in my post...it certainly was not intended to be
this way.

        i met the girls for the first time way back on 12/8/90 at a
comfortable and rocking show at smith college in northampton, ma...i was not
even in college yet, but had a couple of friends who were involved in
concert production in western ma and they invited me up...i spent the most
tiring, yet exhilarating day running around jmg hall putting down sound
cords, setting up mikes...and then helping to unload the girls equipment
(and let me tell you...they have acquired quite a few more things along the
way).
        they were very sweet and always thanking all of the crew everytime
we helped them out.  it was a great show and i ended up with a set list and
the fond memory of having a beer backstage with amy, emily and their crew
while amy mooched cigarettes from me...
        i won't say that the show made up my mind as to where i went to
school...but i did end up at umass and had a great four years going to
classes during the day (most of the time anyway) and working concerts and
clubs at night...
        well, this is getting a bit long...

        peace   jen

from school, where my government teacher was just lecturing on separation of

hi everyone!

what a strange dream i had last night.  it was kind of funny, though.  it's
weird how the subconcious works....

anyway, i'm at this family gathering, except i don't know anyone there.  it's
outside but it's dark.  i'm sitting at a sort of wooden picnic table and i
turn to my left and right and amy is sitting to my left and emily to my
right.  we start chatting, about what i have no idea, and then amy says
something like 'you have to give us a request', meaning that i had to name a
song for them to cover.  so in my dream i clear my mind of all thoughts and
the first song that comes to mind is 'walk on by', i forget by whom (i want
to say roberta flack, but i may be wrong) and i start singing it at the top
of my lungs.  at this point i'm standing on the picnic table and i turn
around and sean penn is sitting there (i haven't a clue where that came
from).  at least i didn't freak out and comment on amy's headwear this time ;
)

i also remember vaguely that i was playing volleyball at some point in the
dream but i don't remember if a&e were playing too-  that would be cool!

i remember bits and pieces of the rest but i don't think there was much more
ig. : (

anyway,  that's my ig dream- if any of you amateur freudians want to give it
a whirl, email me and let me know what you think!

i always thought amy was singing the song to someone who had grown up and was
having problems in their life.  she's saying, "what would you give for your
kid fears" , like when you were little and you worried about stupid things.
now you're older and have real problems and fears to worry about.

"secret staircase running high you had a hiding place."
there was always somewhere you could go to hide away from your fears and
problems.

"replace the rent with the stars above"
when you were little, you had no cares like paying the bills or rent, you
just looked into the sky.

anyway, i really love this song, especially since michael stipe sings on
it!!!!

that's a pretty cool dream, although i too would wonder where sean penn
fit in all that...  btw, "walk on by" was a burt bacharach song that was
song by dionne warwick, among others.  i'm trying to imagine a&e doing
that song...

subject:      more ig dreams

ok, i had a weird little ig dream last night. i don't have these very
often so i can only assume it happened because we were talking about ig
dreams on the list.

anyway, i was in a city in a car and the street was huge and well lit.
lots of traffic and lots of lights. i don't even know what city we were
in. in the car with me were a bunch of ig fans and i don't know who any of
them were but i just know we were all going to see ig. so suddenly we're
inside a room and there are handmade ig t-shirts for sale strung up on
clotheslines, like you'd expect to see at an outdoor bazaar or in front of
a dead show i guess. amy was about 5 feet away from me and she was talking
to someone selling the shirts. i overheard amy asking the girl in a very
concerned (but not mad or angry) voice "so how much do you sell these for?
how much of your profits go to charity?" i remember thinking in my dream
"oh amy is right there" and not even blinking. i really doubt i would be
that calm in rl. well i'd like to think that i would be calm in every
outward appearance but i know my insides would be flipping around cause
i'm such a geek. hmmm... so that's all i remember. my cat kept waking me
up every 15 minutes all morning so i don't know what all i'm forgetting.

what a stupid dream :) i am jealous of the dreams people have where the
girls are actually singing, i think that would be cool. the only other ig
dream i clearly remember having is the one i had before new orleans. at
the time we were still going to drive down there (we ended up flying,
thank god!) so in my dream i forgot to pick the other list members up and
i pulled into a town which i thought was new orleans but it was actually
some town in kansas! there was a big stage there, which i could see from
the highway, so i saw the stage and thought "oh here is new orleans!" and
pulled into town. hmmm.  and then i realized i had one day to get to no
and i was stuck in kansas and i didn't have any of the list members with
me. boy was i happy to wake up from that one. :) this is a fun thread to
read.

hey y'all! i can't believe someone else caught that! when i heard lc for the
first time, i knew the first 4 lines were familiar. then it came to me...
joyce's "araby!" here's the 1st paragraph from the sotry if anyone's interested:

        "north richmond street, being blind, was a quiet street except at
the hour when the christian brothers' school set the boys free. an
uninhabited house of two storeys stood at the blind end, detached from its
neighbors in a square ground. the other houses of the street, conscious of
decent lives within them, gazed at one another with brown imperturbable faces."

if you are familiar with the story of "araby" it could add some further
insights into least complicated, which i will not go into at the moment
because it might just be a bad interpretation. either that, or it could be
exactly what emily wanted, being that she was an english major and all. who
knows! only emily. it seems to me that "araby" plays a part in lc. read the
story and see if you agree. just an opinion, but i've kept it to myself for
so long because i thought no one else saw the "araby" in it. if you want to
discuss this on the list, i'm game. if not, if you would like to discuss it
privately, i'm also willing. if you don't want to discuss it at all, well
that's fine too. good to know i'm not a flake for seeing this, although i
might be off the deep end...again :) lord knows it won't be the first and
definitely not the last.

i'm going to bed now :)

oopsie! i meant to say that not only do i think the first 4 lines of lc
relate to the first paragraph of "araby." but all of lc relates to all of
"araby." didn't know if i made that clear. y'all probably think i'm a freak
but i don't care :) just makes me think that emily is a greater genius than
we all think.

subject:      doma (nigc)

greetings:

a sad day indeed.

for all those interested, here's the offical roll call and how "things went
down" (i.e. how (y)our 50 senators voted) on capitol hill regarding the
defense of marriage act (doma).  funny how all 14 "nays" were all democrats.
i know that there are a few cool socially correct republicans out there.  it
frightens me to think that none of them went out on a limb on this vote.

i plan to write both my senators (rip al d'amato alive and thank sen.
moynihan for his support).  i hope that you'll do the same.

as far the scoop on the employment non-discrimination act (enda)
the following is the senate roll call vote for hr3396, a measure
that would bar federal recognition of same-sex marriages and allow
states to take the same action. the final vote for passage was
85-14.

in my opinion, this is because organized christianity is spending a good
deal of energy making sure that if you don't believe what they believe that
you don't have access to nor are you entitled to the "life, liberty, and
pursuit of happiness" that this country is all about.  nothing new here,
right?  forced conversions of jews during the middle ages, the persecution
of galileo (oops, they apologized for that...hundreds of years later), the
forced conversions of native americans, the criminalization of birth
control in the early part of this century in the us, the on-going battle
to deny choice to women, and the on-going struggle to prevent gay people
from living the "american dream".

as for doma...the people who passed doma for the purpose of sanctifying the
institution of marriage have, in fact, done the exact opposite.  by
passing a restriction which effectively says "love and commitment
between two people are not the requirements for marriage...that the couple
being a woman and a man is", they have undermined the institution and
turned it into something no better than a restricted (whites only)
country club.

subject:      nigc:  more happenings in congress...

since i am such the political junkie that when i got home from work and
a trip to my editors (ok, he is not an editor but a friend who proofreads
stuff for me) i turned on my favorite channel (c-span) and watched some
of the senate debate on doma.  (yes i cheer and boo and heckle my tv...)

in any case, in trying to follow sen. byrd's arguement for passage of
doma he argued that this bill was necessary since there were no real federal
definitions of the term marriage and spouse and that the federal government
needed to define it for themseleves, as states need to define it for their
purposes.
he also made some sort of analogy to the colorado legislation and said that
this (denfese of marriage act) was different because it did not treat
homosexuals as an inferior class, and it just defined the federal scope of
marriage or something.  i need to re-read it.

as far as the question of constitutionality of absconding the "full faith
and credit clause" of the constitution (for all you out there who don't
read the constitution as much as i do because you have a social life,
this clause says that states have to recognize each other's papers and
legal documents.  this is why my nj drivers license is valid in ny and why
court papers are recognized from state to state) that many think doma
does:
congress can, according to the constitution, make exceptions to this clause.
i just don't really know the limits of these exceptions.  i guess the courts
will have to decide this.

as to the question regarding is congress allowed to violate the constitution?
no, but it is the branch that makes the laws.  it can make laws and the
supreme court under maybury v. madison can judge the constitutionality.
(am i getting my supreme court cases right)

as for the bill that would end job discrimation based on sexual preference,
that failed the senate by a vote of 50-49.  the missing senator was david
pryor who was at his son's bedside during 12 hours of cancer surgery.  he
said in the past that he would vote for the bill, but he missed the vote.
(when there is a tie in the senate, the president of the senate which is
the v.p. of the u.s. gets to break it.  gore said he would vote yes for this
bill.)  for all you political science hacks out there, isn't there some way
that you can vote via proxy on rare occassion with unusual circumstance?
i will have to check that out.


if you want to know why the vote for doma went as it did, public opinion
polls show that the people of this us of a are opposed to gay marriage by
a 635 to 27% margin (63% opposed to the idea).

however, 80% of americans feel that job discrimination based on sexual preference is wrong and this still failed.  the house would have let it sit and not
take action on it before the end of the current session which would kill the
bill.


some good news:
the 104th session of congress is drawing to a close.  sen. ted kennedy said he
would introduce the job discrimation bill again during the 105th session
(which starts in january).  depending on the election of course, this could
mean the bill will be law in 1997.

another question for all you constitutional lawyers out there, do legal
groups need to wait for a state to deny recognition of another state's
marriage license to a same-sex marriage before they can seek to appeal it
for unconstitutionality?

i think you forgot to include something info here. enda didn't pass. there
were 49 yea votes, 50 nays. one senator from arkansas didn't vote because
his son was having surgery. apparently he would have voted in favor and al
gore would have broken the tie with a yes vote. (clinton supported the bill
too)

anway the bill didn't pass and that means i can still get fired from my job
simply because of who i love. i don't know if i should be happy that at
least these topics are being discussed and voted on or pissed about the
crap that's being thrown about by our elected officials. one good thing is
that ted kennedy (who sponsored enda) vowed to bring this bill to a vote
next session.

somewhat of an odd place.  let me know what you think.  thanks!

your new signature made me think about another similar lyric from the rush song
"witch hunt" (from the 1981 album - moving pictures)

   quick to judge,
   quick to anger,
   slow to understand

   ignorance and prejudice
   and fear
   walk hand in hand.

first, thanks to everyone who e-mailed me regarding ordering from
daemon and on the kristen hall label!

this is going to sound crazy but here goes:

rather than wade through list postings and responses, i'd like to find
someone who thinks that they know everything there is to know about
artists associated with rdr, daemon or ig related (translation: pretty
much any name you see mentioned on the ig list!) and can buy
second hand cds by these artists.

if you think you are this person, i would be interested in setting up
some sort of arrangment where i could get information on specific
cd titles and have you as my "buyer".  give me cost for cds plus
shipping and if it sounds good, i'll send the money to cover it
and a percentage on top or flat fee for your efforts.

i'm working on the honour system here.  if anyone is interested,
please e-mail me privately and we'll discuss it.

and if someone on the list thinks this is flame material for whatever
reason, e-mail me privately.  thanks,

denise

hi amber, kim from north vancouver here... the poet's name is
frank stanford, he was born in mississippi in august 1st 1948, and
adopted a year later. he spent his first ten years around various
construction encampments, as his father built and supervised the
maintenance of levees on the miss. river. this was a world of black
workers rich in contrast that contributed greatly to his poetry. upon
moving to a primarily white area in arkansas where blacks were
*unofficially* forbidden to live was a shock for him and that had a major
effect on his work. if you are interested in reading any of his work i
would recommend "the singing knives". frand stanford took his own life on
june 3rd 1978 by shooting himself three times in the heart.

                    "the minnow" - frank stanford

             if i press
             on it's head,
             the eyes
             will come out
             like stars.
             the ripples
             it makes
             can move
             the moon.

finding frank stanford in book stores is very difficult, try to take it
ou of the uni/college library, good  luck, kim (north van.)

"elaine m. rigby" <emrigby@naz.edu> put this in her sig file (and seemed
quite proud of it):

  before you judge me take a look at you
  can't you find something better to do               hate is not a
  point the finger, slow to understand                family value!
  arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand
                               -metallica

it immediately pointed my mind to an old rush song, witch hunt, which i
thought might be of interest based on recent political events:

the night is black, without a moon
the air is thick and still
the vigilantes gather on the lonely torchlit hill

features distorted in the flickering light
the faces are twisted and grotesque
silent and stern in the sweltering night
the mob moves like demons possessed
quiet in conscience, calm in their right ---
confident their ways are best

the righteous rise
with burning eyes
of hatred and ill-will
madmen fed on fear and lies
to beat and burn and kill

they say there are strangers who threaten us
in our immigrants and infidels
they say there is strangeness too dangerous
in our theatres and bookstore shelves
those who know what's best for us
must rise and save us from ourselves

quick to judge, quick to anger, slow to understand
ignorance and prejudice and fear walk hand in hand

---neil peart

to me, the song reminds that society is still to this day motivated by fear
of the 'unknown,' meaning anything that is not perceived as 'normal.'  in
colonial times, the remedy was violence, today it appears to be politics (and
i'm sure there's violence too, but it's not the 'official' response).  i'm
wondering, have we progessed or regressed?  which is worse, physical pain or
mental pain, violent oppression or psychological oppression?

                perot, forbes join forces to form
                    crazy rich bastards party
                ---------------------------------

      american voters were given a third political option yesterday
when texas billionaire h. ross perot and multi-millionaire publishing
magnate/heir steve forbes announced that they have joined forces to
form the crazy rich bastards party.

      the alliance, which had been in the works since the start of the
1996 presidential race, was finalized at a recent meeting in which the
two candidates reached a consensus regarding policy.

      "we are unbelievably rich," said perot, speaking from crazy rich
bastards party headquarters in the penthouse suite of new york city's
plaza hotel. "and i don't think anyone would dare deny that we are
both full-blown batshit loonballs."

       added forbes: "my dad used to take balloon rides with liz
taylor."

       the marriage of political ambition and wealth is a longstanding
american tradition, one with which both candidates are intimately
familiar.

      "i have a billion goddamn dollars, just like a lot of other
presidents did," perot said from behind his desk of fine italianate
marble. "all the good ones had about sixty-leven billion goddamn
clams."

      "john kennedy's dad was a self-made billionaire," said forbes
from his hiding place beneath perot's chair. "and so was mine."

      many americans have already thrown their lot in with perot and
forbes, most notably amway salesmen, exiled european royalty and those
with a history of mental instability. still, political pundits were
quick to point out that the ability to amass a large personal fortune
was not necessarily indicative of political prowess.

      "hell, yes, i'm rich," said perot, resplendent in a dallas
cowboys football helmet and a sequined designer wedding dress as he
walked his miniature poodles about the floor of party headquarters.
"and reagan was a movie actor. but what we both got is insanity.
shoot! heck-fire!  also, i am one folksy fellow!"

      "i have some remarkably non-lucid theories on welfare reform,"
said forbes, spastically waving a feces-besmeared pad of legal paper.
"i have written them here in a code of my own devising which you are
far too poor to decipher."

      the crazy rich bastards party platform, although still in the
planning stages, seems to center on economic reform and the addressing
of certain domestic issues.

      "i want an old-fashioned brass diving helmet," perot said. "and
i will wear it while balancing this nation's checkbook. also, i'm
gonna get that state that keeps short-sheeting the national bed and
teach him that he can't mess with the america people!"

      "my dad had a lot of motorcycles," forbes added. "i am the
forbes."

      though it is too early to predict the new party's impact on the
november election, some dole supporters are already showing interest.

      "i am rather obscenely rich," said james havisham-smythe, a
boston shipping magnate. "and i am also addicted to the tincture of
laudanum. perot and forbes are just what people like me have been
looking for. they will make the leprechauns stop yammering and take
care of the bugs bugs bugs bugs bugs bugs."

      both crazy rich bastards party leaders are confident that the
future ultimately belongs to them.

      "america needs h. ross perot and his lucky can of soup," perot
said. "they'll come around, just as sure as i'm nailing shingles to my
back."

      "america," forbes added, his mouth bleeding from gnawing on the
banister. "can of mustard."

ummm.. is this not the best week to be an music fanatic?
ok, the new rem is umm..incredible (i am on it -- well they recorded one of
the songs "undertow" @ fleet center in boston 10/1/95 )
   suzanne vega's new one also came out tuesday.  she is in boston @ tower
newbury tonight @ 6 pm -- i planned on going but i am a bit ill and a 12
houre drive for a 45 min. show on a school/work night isnt exactly appealing.
    john mellencamp has a new release -- from what i heard from a friend it
is good.
and......
     billy bragg released another album on elektra. it is called "william
bloke" no press has been done on this album, i did not get his live indie
release because i have not seen it so buy this and support billy, he is a
incredible, fantastic performer and i may havew to review his album for the
school paper because, while rem put out an album better than "monster and
out of time" but nothing compares to automatic (which wins my album of the
decade vote!!!) but it is really big and i hope i can give some well
deserved press to mr. bragg.

mike r.
ps- i did get everyone's email (thanks melissa, joan and binky) i will reply
asap -- again i have been having an annoying medical problem.

do not even think of sending me get well mail -- it is not a big deal...

well i personally hate joyce, but there are similarities, though the angst
of first time love in "coming of age" stories is common in many stories so
there is no guarantee that this is the story that emily was thinking of at
the time (not that that necesarily matters in an interpretation).

hi!

thanks to everyone who emailed me to tell me that dionne warwick performed
'walk on by'.  maybe subconsciously i want to become a psychic friend...

i also have figured out the connection between ig and sean penn:

1)  sean penn was in 'dead man walking' with susan sarandon
2)  susan sarandon was in 'thelma and louise' with brad pitt
3)  brad pitt was in 'seven' with morgan freeman
4)  morgan freeman was in 'driving miss daisy' with jessica tandy
5)  jessica tandy was in 'fried green tomatoes' with mary-louise parker
6)  mary-louise parker was in 'boys on the side', in which the ig performed!

there you go- 'six degrees of separation' between ig and sean penn.  now i
don't feel so wacko anymore ; )

so,  i had a little bout of insomnia last night, i laid in bed for three
hours before i finally drifted off to sleep.

first, i tried to sing myself to sleep,  after five times throught "get out
the map", i decided it wasn't working

so then, i pondered what-to-do-with-the-rest-of-my-life and
how-i-would-solve-the-worlds-problems-if-i-were-in-charge, still no sleep.

then i was thinking about how amy ray chose the word "indigo" out of the
dictionary,  so (and this is the point of the story)  if pulled out a
dictionary, and if i were amy ray,  we would all be on the "jumada girls"
list, hee hee hee.....

dear fellow ig troopers,
this is kim (north vancouver) writing to let you all know that i am
having a crisis of faith as we speak. i am not joking. i have never
smoked. when i was younger it was an act of rebellion because my
parents did smoke (go figure). and when i was in my twenties i was a
serious athlete and it just 'don't' go with training. so, that being said,
and circumstances being different who knows, maybe i was lucky enough not
to start. but...but.. i have not made it my mission to try to enlighten
the world, politics, gay rights, habitat for humanity, greenpeace, honor
the earth, i am not selling this as my message, nor am i advising people
to act in their communities while all the while obliging a habit that has
stripped people of their dignity. the advertisers and corporate hench men
alone should be reason enough not to smoke. never mind the industry, the
power they hold, the medical dilemma we face today because of smokers.
please, oh please, someone tell me this is not so. and to all you smokers
out there, please, i do not mean to judge you. i am reluctant to send
this to the list, the last thing i want to do is antagonise hundreds of
people who may or may not smoke, it's how i feel. i have absolutely loved
the ig since i first heard them, if this horrible reality is true i
honestly do not think i will listen to amy the same way. is this harsh? am
i being completely closed-minded? please.. without being defensive, and
without hostility, may we put this up for discussion? dare we?

sincerely kim (north vancouver) who values each and every opinion and/or
response to this and will appreciate it greatly. just don't hate me for
being honest. and.. i hope i'm wrong, i hope amy was "mooching cigarettes"
for a mural she was making! (she waits anxiously as the impending
onslaught chomps at the bit)!!!

subject:      re: colllege ed. etc.

just thought i'd send along something someone sent to me when
i was finishing up university:


life & college
==============
people who go to college are incredible.

we go to classes.  we read and absorb and are comprehensively tested on
heavy amounts of various materials.  we sleep very little.  we drink
ourselves into oblivion.  we kill ourselves with several types of smoke.
we cough and keep smoking.  someone is always sick.  someone is always
complaining.

we become attached to close friends.  we smother each other.  we lean
too much.

we think often of the past and want to go back.  we know we cannot.  we
all have separate lives, families, backgrounds and pasts.  we live totally
different from how we used to live.  we are frustrated and sometimes want
to give up, but we never stop trying.

we disregard health.  we eat awful foods.  we are forced to think about the
future.  we are scared and confused.  we reach out for things, yet we don't
find them.  we try to sort out our minds, which are filled with studies,
worries, problems, memories, emotions--powerful feelings.  we wander the
halls looking for happiness.

we hurt--a lot.

we keep going, though, because above all else, we never stop learning,
growing, changing, and most important dreaming.  dreams keep us going and
they always will.  all we can do is be thankful that we have something to
hold onto, like dreams and each other.

subject:      honor

hi everyone,
i was listening to our local public radio station here in
boulder and heard them talking about "honor".  that
is the new cd that daemon records put out as part of
honor the earth.  they talked about the information
presented in the cd.  one of the topics mentioned was
concerning all the clear cutting of forests that is going on
right now in the us, canada, and south america.  the
indigenous peoples are banning together, along with the
indigo girls, and trying to prevent the cutting of the forests.
at least on their lands.  also mentioned was "unplugged
day".  it is coming up on october 13th, which is not a friday.
what they are asking is that everyone try to not use
electricity for that day.  to help us better understand our
dependency on it.  i guess that means turning off our
computers on the 13th and *yikes* no posts.  they played
a few cuts from the cd.  i really liked "the future is a war"
and "oil, guns and  drugs".   it sounds like a great cd and
a great cause.

take care y'all,
- - howdy...

subject:      dream

i actually had an ig dream. i never remember my dreams and figured i would
probably never have an ig dream like i keept reading about, and if i did i
knew i would never remember it. my dreams are all really strange and i can
never figure out their meaning, even though i can figure out all of my
friends dreams.


the dream started with me in my dad's little tiny town, norwood, colorado
(it's near telluride). i saw amy and went up to her and asked her what she
was doing there. she told me that emily had grown up around there and that
they were visiting.

the next part i remember i was in the highschool and a&e were both there
then. there were a whole bunch of people there watching tv, it seemed like
the entire town. they were all waiting for some show to come on, they almost
seemed in a daze.

a&e were going to leave and said i could come with them. without realising
it they walked out, i hadn't noticed it because i was looking at this tv and
seemed to lose time.

so i walked out after them and caught up.
i remember that at first i felt left out and was walking behind them but
then i walked to the left of amy on the grass. (the strange details i remember)

we walked past this big old blue house and i told them that this old blind
man lived there. as we walked passed he came out. he asked amy her name &
she told her. he asked my name and i said hollie huthman and he said "oh hi
holly kane" (the name of this girl who lives in norwood).  then he asked
emily's name and she told him and he gave her this big hug and seemed all happy.
(then i woke up to my mom telling me i had slept in and had 15 minutes to
get ready or she wouldn't drive me to school.)

it was really strange. there was more to it, like i think there was some
underlying thing that may have been about some kind of disaster that was
going to happen or had happened. but i can't remember what that was.  it may
have been about someone putting something in the water. and i remember i had
a conversation with amy that was more than just a few lines but i can't
remember that.

i was really happy when i woke up. it was kind of like i had acomplished
somehting by dreaming about this, like there was some ig dream club and now
i could be accepted. i just prayed i wouldn't forget my dream so that i
could write it down on here.

subject:      1200 curfews pot intro

hey is anyone else rather bothered by a statement made before the power of
two track on 1200 curfews by whoever the girls' interviewer was for modern
rock live? i'm talking about when, right before they start to play, the
announcer says, groping for an intro possibly "well let's see if that
training paid off." (the remark followed when emily was talking about taking
guitar lessions as a kid.) i mean, i'm sure the announcer is a really nice
guy, and i've never listened to modern rock live, so i have no clue as to
what he's like on the air, but how could anyone say about emily "let's see
if that training paid off." for goodness sake, isn't obvious that her guitar
playing had gone far beyond the bounds of 'paying off?!'  ok, sorry for
going crazy over that guys, it just really bugs me every time i hear it!
at least we know that judging from the in-studio round of applause a & e got
after playing, they certainly impressed anyone who was listening...

subject:      more stuff on enda (nigc)

hey friends -

here are two add'l bits regarding the defeat of the employment
non-descrimination act in the senate yesterday.  it truly is disturbing to me
that while for many (if not all) of us on this list reading a statement like
the following really sets our stomachs riding, our hearts aching and our
heads spinning, there are so many more out there that read the same statement
and cheer and nod in agreement.

i am submitting the frc press release on enda's defeat, because it is a
pretty
straightforward presentation of the arguments of the opposition. i hope you
find this useful in preparing a specific rebuttal. it might be helpful to use
when writing "letters to the editor" which, as bill stosine has suggested,
would be a good idea to do asap to help educate the public in the wake of
enda's defeat.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
washington, sept. 10 /prnewswire/ -- "america has dodged the bullet," family
research council president gary bauer said of the senate's narrow (49-50)
defeat of the so-called employment non-discrimination act (enda).

"for the u.s. senate to come within one vote of enshrining homosexuality
along with race, sex and ethnicity in our nation's civil rights laws
represents a disconnect from reality.

"many enda supporters equated homosexuality with being black or hispanic. but
minority groups that enjoy special protections do so because of group
histories of political powerlessness, economic deprivation and unchangeable
characteristics.  homosexuals do not qualify in any of these categories.

"this was a homosexual jobs bill, pure and simple. it would have forced
employers to keep detailed records of the private sexual preferences of their
employees.  how bizarre that the defenders of the constitutional right of
privacy were prepared to annihilate privacy in the service of the homosexual
agenda.

"enda would have led, inexorably, to quotas and set-asides.  all the most
divisive social conflicts in america today would have been inflamed by the
passage of this ill-advised legislation. can nearly half of our senators
really want that?  supporters of  enda shrewdly used paper exemptions for
churches and synagogues to create a facade of deference to the religious
community.  but, make no mistake, this bill would have been used as a
sledgehammer to smash faith-based, for-profit institutions -- like religious
broadcasters, like religious publishing houses and bookstores, like summer
camps for religious youth.

"passage of enda would have signaled the contempt of senate liberals for the
legitimate rights of the states, one-third of which still list sodomy as a
crime.  worst of all, enda would have encouraged more young people to enter
an immoral and unhealthy lifestyle. society cannot be indifferent to the
signals -- subtle and not-so-subtle -- that it sends its youth.  enda would
have meant that the u.s. government doesn't care whether young people who are
struggling with their sexual identity resolve to live normal, heterosexual
lives or not.

"but this is a day to savor victory.  it is sweet because it was so hard won.
the overwhelming vote of the senate (85-14) in favor of the defense of
marriage act (doma) sends a clear message that this basic institution is
valued and will be fought for.  no one can take seriously the argument that
it is beneath the dignity of the senate to debate the survival of marriage.
failure to pass doma would have exposed the entire federal union -- all the
states, all branches of the federal government -- to the dangers of an
imperial judiciary. with this stunning vote, the supreme court of hawaii has
all the justification it needs to reject gay marriage. let's put this bad
idea to rest now -- and forever.  president clinton should now eat his
spinach and sign doma immediately."

hmmmm..well i have an excellent sense of humor, but if that was not amy
ray (as i now assume it is not), i dont think it was funny at all!!!
shame on you greg. now if they do show up here, how will anyone believe
it?

i am on the styx mailing list, and tommy shaw sometimes shows up. no onw
doubts his authenticity, cause no one feels the need to do what greg
did. the drummer for the hooters (the band) also shows up on their
mailing list sometimes. i know he is for real, cause he lives in my home
town. my point here, is that you are ruining it, greg, for all of us
that hope to hear a real word or two from the girls.

ok, off my soapbox now. sorry (flame suit on)

just wanted to point out, as the aquarius branch of the no curfews tree,
that i have thus far only received _4_ tapes for this great tcompilation.
what?!? you gasp, astonished.  i hope the rest of the branches are getting
lotsa requests for this cuz sunny did a great job on this project.  lotsa
rarities (and the much-gushed-over down by the river from nff) and good
sound quality, a fun listen...this one finally ousted caroline from my car
tape deck.  so where are you guys??? get em while they're hot!

dear kim,

i hate to disappoint you, but when ig gave an honor the
earth show in la in '95 (the show where they recorded
"thin line" on 1200 curfews) i heard from someone who
ran errands for ig that day.  one of her assignments was to
find a tobacco store because amy rolled her own cigarettes.

i also heard on aol that emily smokes muriel air tip
cigars once a week.  sorry!

on a happier note, to the person that may do the video
boot, i might have some footage to contribute.  e-mail
me so we can talk about it.

it wasn't just my system crashing again...
        second...for everyone who missed it or is upset about the idea that
amy smokes...let me clear this up for y'all...
        i know, because i was outside smoking a camel light with her, that
she was still smoking on 6 dec 92...however, we were talking about the whole
smoking thing and she said she was trying to quit...and when i saw her next
about a year later...not a cancer stick in sight....yeah!!!
        just wanted everyone ot know...amy does not smoke anymore...and for
all of us who've quit, tried to quit, or are trying...you know how difficult
this can be...       oh and by the way, chris mentioned having heard that
she quit because of her voice...bingo for at least half of the resason...

i don't know if amy smokes cigarettes or not, but i did see her and emily
tokin' on a big ol' j after a show in st. pete, fl.
i was also at a show in orlando where smoking was permitted in the room that
they were performing in and amy asked everyone not to light up because it
irritated their voices...

ps... i think a tattoo like amy's would be too kewl, but i wouldn't get it on

how are you going to know if your system is *%&#ed by sending a message to
the list?  you wouldn't receive it if the list were down or if your system
was down.  if you want to know if your system is *%&#ed, go ask your sysadmin.

     the only time i've ever had a & e in one of my dreams, was the night
        before i flew down to marco island, fl to visit my parents, last year.
        i'm always changing planes at atlanta--so, in my dream, i'm drinking
        an espresso on a tall-stool and i see emily walking down the hall
        wearing a minnesota vikings cap, carrying an indigo blue carry-on,
        amy is wearing a husker du t-shirt, and carrying an acoustic in a
        gig-bag--so, i walk-up to them and tell them how much i love their
        music, and how i hear it again for the first time, everytime!
        and emily says "that's sweet!" --- and they walk away, ten feet
        later, emily turns to look at me and i do the same, and we just
        smile!
     actually, now that i think about it--this dream is pretty neat. here
        i am, meeting some famous people, and realizing how "real" some of
        them are. the meeting farrah fawcett dreams i used to high-school
        were obviously much different!!!

subject:      here we go again:what to do if the list is down

i do this about three times a semester now, it seems, but every time the
list stops coming new folks start panicking and i get flooded with
extra posts about why the list is down...
  it happens often, so relax! if you stop getting the list for more than half
a day, email a fellow lister and ask that person if he/she is getting
the list. if not, then sit tight, it will return. if that person says
yes, then you should try to get help from the list.
  this is my normal request, and i will start begging on my knees again
if no one listens, as every time the list gets stopped up and everyone
sends "what's going on?" posts my disk crashes and i have no email for
a few days-please don't panic, ok? wait out any list delays...it's not
the end of the world if you aren't getting the list for a day or so, and

subject:      dreams....

i had a strange ig dream last night.  maybe it is due to all the dyke drama
and trauma in my life.... (jk) but anyways.  here goes.

i was at some sort of music festival.  and my friends and i were watching
shawn colvin perform.  she was playing in the mouth of a cave, and we were
standing around outside.  it was really good.  until.... we heard a growling
noise, and all of the sudden a tiger came out of the cave and started
chasing shawn.  that was so scary, but of course none of us tried to help
her, we all ran.  i don't know if the tiger got her or what, because
apparently it was time for the ig concert and i ran over there.  well i was
front row, and the stage was tiny and there was no security, so i was very
close to amy.  she had a penchant for throwing things off the stage to
people, souvenirs i guess.  so i was right by her and she was throwing
things to my area but i never caught one.  finally she just smiled at me and
handed something to me, it was a hat.  it said, "i love emily" on it.  i
laughed.  it was so cute.  then they went on and played....

it was a cool dream other than the part where shawn colvin got mauled by a
tiger.

well...  bumberbooters please get your tapes to me!  thank you....

subject:      in the spirit of doma  (nigc)

i enjoyed christopher m. beckers piece about perot and forbes so much that
i have to add the following.  i apolgoize in advance to any republicans
-i'm not pigeonholing you- , but your loudest constituents, as in any
segment of society, have "brought this on themselves".  i also apologize if
you all have already seen this.  as a new listee, i have no way of knowing.

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

                           born republican
                         by daniel mendelsohn

the startling discovery that affiliation with the republican party is
genetically determined was announced by scientists in the current
issue of the journal "nurture."  reports of the gene that codes for political
conservatism, discovered after a long study of quintuplets in orange
county, calif., has sent shock waves through the medical, political,
and golfing communities.

psychologists and psychoanalysts have long believed that republicans'
unnatural and frequently unconstitutional tendencies result from
unhealthy family life -- a remarkably high percentage of republicans had
authoritative, domineering fathers and emotionally distant mothers who
failed to teach them how to be kind and gentle. but biologists have
long suspected that conservatism is inherited. "after all," said one
author of the "nurture" article, "it's quite common for a republican to have a
brother or a sister who is also a republican."

the finding has been greeted with relief by parents and friends of
republicans, who have tended to blame themselves for the political
views of otherwise lovable people -- their children, friends, and unindicted
co-conspirators.

one mother, a longtime democrat, clasped her hands in ecstasy on
hearing of the findings. "i just knew it was genetic," she said, seated
beside her two sons, both avowed republicans. "i just knew that nobody would
actually choose that life style!" when asked what the republican life style was,
she said, "well, you can just tell from watching tv, like at the
convention in houston: the loud outfits, the flaming xenophobia, the
flamboyant demagogy -- you know."

both sons said they had suspected their republicanism from an early age
but did not confirm it until they were in college, when they became
convinced it wasn't just a phase they were going through.

despite the near-certainty of the medical community of republicanism's
genetic origins, troubling issues remain. the "nurture" article
offered no response to the suggestion that the startlingly high incidence of
republicanism among siblings could result from the fact that they share
not only genes but also psychological and emotional attitudes, being
the products of the same parents and family dynamics.

and it remains to be explained why so many avowed democrats are known
to vote republican occasionally -- or at least to fantasize about doing
so.  polls show that three out of five democrats admit to having had a
republican experience. in well-adjusted people, however, this
experimentation rarely outlasts adolescence.

surprisingly, some republican activists hail the findings as a step
forward rather than as an invitation to more conservophobia. they argue
that since republicans didn't "choose" their unwholesome life style any
more than someone "chooses" to have a ski-jump nose, they shouldn't be
denied civil rights to which normal people are entitled.

but for many "real" americans, the discovery opens a window on a
brighter tomorrow. in a few years, gene therapy could eradicate republicanism
altogether.

if conservatism is not the result of sheer orneriness (as many suspect)
but is something republicans can't help and probably don't even like,
there's no reasons why we shouldn't tolerate republicans in the
military or even high elected office -- provided they don't flaunt their
political beliefs.

the whole smoking discussion reminded me of something funny.  i have never
smoked, but i do not mean to offend anyone who does.  anyway, this is on a
funny plaque that i found at a magic shop (!):

                        thank you for not smoking

        cigarette smoking is the residue of your pleasure.  it contaminates
the air, pollutes my hair and clothes, not to mention my lungs.  this takes
place without my consent.
        i have a pleasure, also.  i like a beer now and then.  the residue
of my pleasure is urine.
        would you be annoyed if i stood on a chair and pissed on your head
and your clothes without your consent?


so, what do you think?

on a different note, some friends & i just registered a new a capella group
on penn's campus, & our first attempt will probably be ctf.  this is b/c
almost everyone knows it already & the harmonies are easy.  any other
suggestions for similar songs (songs that are easy to learn & don't require
accompanyment) by the ig or anyone else?  thanks...

subject:      amy does smoke...

well, i haven't posted in forever 'cuz i was gone all summer and i can't
believe that i'm going to reply to something so trivial, but i must not
allow lies to permeate on the list.  contrary to popular belief, i've
seen amy smoke fairly recently...it's your judgment as to how recent.
it was at the central michigian univ. show in april of '95 and she walked
out of her hotel to get on the bus and a couple of my friends and i were
there and we talked to her and she stood there and finished her cigarette
while she talked to us.  sorry to disappoint anyone...now this doesn't
mean that she stopped smoking since then, but i know she obviously didn't
stop smoking back in '93, which is what people have been claiming.

also, i'm going to extend my plea to the list.  since i was gone all
summer, i'm not up on all the places ig will be in the upcoming months...
like the show in minnesota...if anyone could e-mail me with any dates and
places i would appreciate it.  thanks!

while i recognize lauree's feelings on the "christian right" and the
modern christian movement and all of the wrongs that they have
perpetrated on society and other cultures (i have been reading a book
that has covered the renaissance popes and all that they participated in
and was appalled).  i think that what this is a prime example of a small
section of a group of people making a lot of noise about what they are
doing.  thus making the rest of society believe that all christians are
conservative right wingers that want to alter our lives and resrict our
rights.  this is not the case.  there are many christians out there that
are happy to be christians and don't feel that they need to "save" the
rest of the world.  i believe that christianity is a personal choice
that i have made and intend to keep it that way.

there are many organized christian groups that continue to support
everyone's rights to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness".  they
just don't make a lot of noise about it, maybe we should start...but i
don't think so.

nothing is wrong with plain old love!  but what is wrong with feminism?  it
is a beautiful thing, something that gives me hope in this crazy
hate-filled world we live in.  if you love men and women, and you want
everyone to have equal opportunities, then in my mind, you are a feminist.
i'm not trying to flame anyone here, more trying to understand where you
are coming from, but feminism has been given a bad name in our general
society.  feminists are not all man-hating lesbians, they are just people
who, to quote from a bumpersticker believe: "feminism in the radical notion
that women are people"  if a you love women, sexually or non-sexually, i
think you could agree with that, and embrace feminism.  just imho

peace, love, parity, and purple!!!

on a similar note - on watershed (the video), recall the early interviews
that a&e had with that local tv show?  you remember - - the one where emily
is wearing those awful purple jeans <g>.  there's one part where they're

looking obviously not interest in what a&e are discussing.

that one bothers me too..

hey is anyone else rather bothered by a statement made before the power of
two track on 1200 curfews by whoever the girls' interviewer was for modern
rock live? i'm talking about when, right before they start to play, the
announcer says, groping for an intro possibly "well let's see if that
training paid off." (the remark followed when emily was talking about
taking
guitar lessions as a kid.) i mean, i'm sure the announcer is a really nice
guy, and i've never listened to modern rock live, so i have no clue as to
what he's like on the air, but how could anyone say about emily "let's see
if that training paid off." for goodness sake, isn't obvious that her

playing had gone far beyond the bounds of 'paying off?!'  ok, sorry for
going crazy over that guys, it just really bugs me every time i hear it!
at least we know that judging from the in-studio round of applause a & e
got
after playing, they certainly impressed anyone who was listening...

subject:      political posts-why here?

ok, after quietly trying to just read and not respond, i just cannot take it
anymore.  why is it that people who like the indigo girls feel that everyone
who likes them is also a greenpeace supporting liberal who absolutely must
support same sex marriages?  and what in god's name does this have to do with
the indigo girls?  i subscribed to this group because i love the indigo girls
music.  i  enjoy reading what other people have to say about their music,
interpretation of lyrics, concerts, etc.  unfortunately, it seems as though
just because amy and emily are lesbians who support greenpeace, same sex
marriages, etc, that this can be a forum for discussing such issues, and i do
not feel this is appropriate for a group called indigo-girls.

i am male, straight, conservative, ex-navy man (and proud), i do not support
greenpeace, i am not in favor of same sex marriages, i like david letterman
and howard stern, i love playing and watching ice hockey, and i love the
indigo girls and their music. why is that so bad?  why is it contradictory
for a person to be straight and conservative and also like the indigo girls?


while i may not agree with most of this group on political issues, i respect
the fact that people have different opinions, and it doesn't mean that i
consider a person who supports same sex marriages and greenpeace as an enemy
not worthy of any social redeeming value.  but the point is, the political
posts don't even belong here, and i wish it would stop, because i certainly
did enjoy the other posts about the indigo girls and their terrific music.

subject:      sundara's 6th ig dream!!!

well,  for all of those who wish they could have amy and emily appear in
their dreams,  don't you wish you were me!!!  hee hee, okay,  this one
isn't as fun as some of my other ones,  but still i find it interesting...

i was with my family,  mom, dad, and the four sibs,  and we were eating
dinner in this room that was like a banquet room in a resturant, and amy
and emily were there with us, sitting across from me,  just like they were
part of the family  (i think this means that a and e have become so much a
part of my life, they are like my family)  and the funny thing was,  i
wasn't even nervous or excited they were there.  it was very normal.  then
things go weird.  there was this ghost in the room,  and she didn't like
amy and emily's music.  go figure.  dumb ghost.  so she kept turning the
radio on to elevator music.  and she kept making the windows bleed,  there
was all this blood dripping down them.  i recall having a dream where my
family is in the room eating before, only a and e weren't there, and
previously, my mom and sister could sense the ghosts presence, and i
couldn't,  but this time, i could.  it was very scary.  i didn't like the
ghost at all.  amy and emily didn't do much, they just kind of ate, and
hung out with us.  but i remember cowering against my mom, cause the ghost
was really scaring me,  it kept swooping down towards me, and then i woke
up. i thought for a while that maybe the ghost was a reference to the song,
but because this is a reocurring dream,  i don't think so.  what do you
think?

peace, love, parity, and purple!!!

subject:      from caroline aiken

hello to all of you on the indigo girl's list! i am grateful to amy and
emily for this opportunity to reach you. they rocked my world at
bumbershoot...great new material! definately an inspiration, as always.
thankyou for your inquiries on tour and product availabilty, and positive
words and support...it can get completely isolated out here on the road, and
hearing from you all over the world is such a bust...you people are funny
and it keeps me rolling (luckily, all four wheels haven't left the ground
since june)
this west coast tour has been a real kick, starting in seattle. i absolutely
love that city...thanks to whomever ordered the weather...  bumbershoot has
graced me with 2 wonderful years in a row of fun and i am grateful to one
reel and reenie duff...it was an honor, bar none.
i have to fight the urge to go down to pike market and street sing...not
that i'm above it, it's hard on the voice and when on the road, with shows
scheduled and travel intense, it's not a good idea. damn.i hate being so
responsible ;-)i have fond memories of street-singing...it's so raw and
exposed. speaking of raw, i stayed with my buddy, eljefe, and lady jayne...
much love to those two.
i hung out deep  in a park one morning with some homeless kids  camping out
under an overpass, and got a close look at the
street/grunge/hopelessness/anger that these kids feel. i was one of these
kids hitching up and down the coast in '70-78...i learned to play guitar
from (mostly) guys that i met, and i turned it into something positive.
under that overpass, we laughed at circumstance, and i listened to them talk
of their home lives, or the lack thereof.an older guy admtted he'd been a
thief and in jail, and a very young guy said it had been a good week...he's
gotten laid, and the girl gave him the electric guitar and pignose amp that
we were sharing. as i was leaving, the youngest asked if i could spare some
change. ah life....
portland was too quick to get a real reading of...thanks to borders and
books for supporting the traveling musician.
ah,eugene!!! i like eugene! thanks to mk and kathy for their hospitality...i
felt very much loved and at home. look out for mk's cd...the girl can
sing.thanks to klcc(dj:frank goser), krvm(dj:mike myers), and doug tucker's
show on the radio station at the u.of o...john henry's was fun!
you'll have to get a newsletter to get the poop on more about eugene and the
folks there or the shows in la and in santa cruz...if i spill the beans
here, there won't be anything left to write (fat chance)

alot of you (thankfully) are asking about the availabiltity of my previous
albums...well...it's real hard to find the third cd:live at eddie's attic,
and if you can find it, please let me know...they have gone out into the
world, and i haven't seen them in a while...tell them to phone home. we will
be pressing them next year in a limited edition to have at shows.the
previous two('88:line of vision w/bonnie raitt and '91: dancing with danger)
won't be pressed in their entirety, but excerpts will be taken and released
in a limited edition in the next year.
a new album is in the works for spring of '97...a studio effort with all
original tunes, and some surprises...that's about all i can say on that...i
know you understand...don't you?

thanks for this moment with you.

may peace and hope hold you bouyant.

they may be a "small group of people" (i personally have no info on
percentages or numbers), but they are surely doing much more than
making noise-- they are making legislation. legislation that affects the lives
of every gay and lesbian american. we're not talking about a verbal debate
here-- we're talking about gay americans fighting for their very existence. and it
just so happens that the people we are forced to fight agains identify
themselves as christians, "moral majority", "religious right", etc.

well, i for one, do think so. if you don't speak up to counter what
the right-wing extremist zealots are doing, then you shouldn't complain
when people generalize based on the "noisy few". i'm both gay and
christian, and i feel that we must have the participation of the reasonable
and tolerant straight christians to stop what is going on. we also need
gay christians to come out and show that being gay and christian are
not mutually exclusive. if you see what's going on around you and don't
speak up to help right the wrong, then, in my mind, you are expressing
agreement and are equally responsible.

i have to disagree.  the indigo girls are a very political band and there music
is very political.  "this train revised", "bury my heart at wounded knee", "let
it be me", "hammer and a nail"; all of these are directly political songs, not
to mention the fact that most, if not all, of their songs have political
undertones. like "chiapas bound" and "shame on you".  any honest and indepth
discussion of the indigo girls and their music must neccessarily not only have
political currents, but will, by their very essience, be political discussion.

the indigo girls are really not singing primarily to the people on this, that
would be preaching to the choir. they are singing to stright white consevative
males of age, like myself, whose opinions, if they are changed, can make a
difference.

i know i shouldn't add this next part. but, i'm very upset about the same sex
marraige issue, and ashamed for the us and for texas.  it seems to me to be an
obvious messure taken out of blind prejudice and religious superstition (yes i
am a christian). please view this as food for thought. it is not meant as a
personal assult. i don't think that it is any more inconsistant for someone
who is against same sex marriages to listen to the indigo girls simply because
their music is beutiful than it is for himler to listen to benny goodman because
he loves swing.

sorry for the flame, but if your not going to take a stand on this, then what
are you going to stand up for.

michael asks in a most plaintive way why political posts mar the landscape
of this wonder list. please allow me to quote:

i will walk down the street
i will walk down the street
i will walk down the street and i will hold my head high.

(my life is part of the global life)

i will walk down the street and i will say hello to everybody
and i will hold my head high.
i will say hello to everyone

(if the world is night, shine my life like a light)

i will not be ashamed
i will fall down and i will get back up again
i will not be ashamed

(nobody gets a lifetime rehearsal, as specks of dust we're universal)

i will not be complacent
i will not be complacent
i will not be complacent

(by grace my sight grows stronger)

and we will not be complacent
and we will not be complacent
and we will not be ashamed

(my place is of the sun)

and we will be alive
and we will be happy
and we will walk down the street
and we will smile and we won't worry about it

(each life has its place)

we will not be racist
we will not be sexist
we will not be homophobic
we will not hate

(the evil ego and the vice of pride
is there ever anything else that makes us take our different sides?)

we will love we will love we will love we will love
we will love the ones we hate
we will love the ones we hate

...it's all in our hands
got to learn to respect what we don't understand
we are fortunate ones, fortunate ones i swear...

***end of quoted material***

does that answer your question michael?

hey y'all, i hadn't seen this posted here yet, and my deepest apologies if
i'm being redundant cause i happened to miss it, but emily appears on a
number of songs on ferron's new cd "still riot".  i think all the songs she
sings in though, she's part of a backup chorus, so you really can't
distinguish her voice.  but i thought i'd mention it just for you _truly_
fanatical types who must own every single cd that a&e even breathe on or are
thanked on or are friends of friends of the cousin of the producer :)
(certainly wouldn't find evidence of such fanaticism in my cd collection, oh
no, never :)

anyone heard this cd, btw?  i'd like to know some other opinions.  really
too pop-y for my taste, i just kept thinking "what's up with this?  who is
this?" but maybe i didn't listen good enough.  oh well......

actually, you can distinguish her voice sometimes on the chorus songs, if
you listen closely.  also, she does the 'support vocal' on primitive future,
so you can hear her very clearly on that one.

so far i can't say i like it as much as driver or phantom center.  i have
only listened to it a few times, though, and i keep getting interrupted. it
will take a few more listens before i really decide.

subject:      lady of shallot/ left me a fool

hey all,

shallot (sorry if it's spelled wrong - i dont' remember...) is indeed a
mythical place, a part of most versions of the king arthur legend.  er, i
don't know if anyone wants the whole story, so i'll do the short, short
version:  elaine (the lady of shallot or escalot depending on whose
legend you're reading) fell madly in love with lancelot, who we all know
was only interested in his darling gwen...  when she couldn't have him as
husband, she got really pissed off and put herself in a barge down the
river to camelot (? - or wherever arthur's court was at the time...) and
died on the way there, holding a note explaining that she died of love
unable to be fulfilled...

there's a whole lot more to the story but it would waste so much
space...

that story is what i think of when i hear "left me a fool" - but i have
no idea if that's what it is actually about!   anybody know?

later y'all,
debbie
alexand6@jeflin.tju.edu

wow, it's great to be back!  i missed you all a lot more than i realized.
a few weeks ago my hard drive crashed, so i have been unable to check my
mail on my local b-board.  so i had to wait for classes to start so i
could access the school's computer system.  hopefully, i'll be able to
afford a new drive before the end of the semester when my account will
get yanked.
so i justed subsribed to the list from my school account today.  i can't
tell you how much it made my day to log on and see that i had mail
waiting from you all.  i'm so excited and happy!
oh, yeah!  i can get on the web now!  so send me neat, interesting web
sites to visit.  and let me know if anything really interesting has
happened in the last 3 weeks or so.
well, i'm going to go surfing now and see what i can see.  do i need a
life preserver for this?  does it matter that i can't swim?  wish me luck!

okay. i wasn't going to say anything when everybody thought that greg's
flippant remark about being amy in disguise was a serious attempt to fool
us (get real, people. amy would *never* have such a lame signature file <gd&r>)
but with this, i am forced to conclude that there is a serious epidemic of irony
deficiency rampant on this forum.

i was hoping i wouldn't have to ask this, but -- have y'all been forgetting to
take your irony supplements? :-)

(and if you still think that "let's see if that training paid off" remark was
meant as a serious slam against emily, look up the word "segue" in the
dictionary and you will be enlightened.)

it's just that i would really like to believe it, if one of the girls

i wont apologize for my opinion (because that still stands), but i

hi y'all. just thought i'd share a little happiness that i had today. as i
was reading the western herald (western michigan univ's paper) and
listening to some ig on my headset, i turned the page to the weekend scene
section and found a big picture of amy and emily to advertise to readers
the short blurb on the honor cd. :) :) :)
    i've never seen the picture before, it looks like it's from a recent
concert. all i can make out behind them is "uemez puebl... civic center"
looks like it's before a concert because it is daylight out and they have
guitars in cases over their shoulders and in front of them (respectively).
t and jeans. not too great a picture but a pleasant surprise none the
less.

wishing happy indigo days and peace
amy

do.  then again, maybe not.  if his intention was to give us a
laugh, it worked.  if his intention was to turn our
conversation away from trivial things, then it didn't work 'cause now
were talking about his fake post.  who knows?  maybe it really was amy, just

the key word here is "organized."  imho, christianity was never meant
to have been organized, but for the sake of those who feel this need,
it has been, much to it's loss.  my faith, although i have grown up
in a mainline church, comes from my personal relationship with
christ, and my readings of the bible.  it hurts me when people assume
that because of what has been done wrong in the name of christianity,
that i am a bad person.  it hurts me even more when people hide
under the cloak of christianity to follow their own agendas (such as
what has happened with doma).  why is it that now the government
feels it must define what marraige is?  this didn't matter to them
for the last 220 years?  why is it now that the government decides to
follow the ways of the "christian" radical conservatives?  oh, and
another thing, the christian coalition will never, ever be what i
consider christian.  no true follower of christ would have an agenda
such as their's.

sorry to have bothered you with my thoughts...

i am female, undecided, loony-liberal, pacifist, i am an environmental
extremist, i am in favor of same-sex marriages, i think howard stern should be
poked with a stick, i hate competitive sports, and, well...i think you can guess
the last one. however, i agree with you, michael, on one thing: these off-topic
posts have been going on long enough. although i am totally sympathetic to y'all
off-topic discussers, this list is about the indigo girls and *prolonged*
discussions of anything else (except for the great grape nut debate of 1996,
of course ;-)) are inappropriate for it.

please, continue the discussion, but take it to private e-mail. the net.gods
will smile upon you for it. :-)

let's all keep in mind that just because the people one fights against
call themselves christian doesn't mean that one must fight against all
people who call themselves christian. making generalizations and
condemning all based on the actions of some are intolerable behaviors
no matter what side you're on.

is the trinity the first recorded case of mpd(multiple personality
disorder)???;-)

if you have mpd press 2,3,4,or 5...

>in the political sense, but more in the social kind of sense.
hmmm..maybe it's your med school. i lived through the experience and
enjoyed it and still am a student of the human condition. of course i'm
talking ancient history here, but i would say the majority of of my
classmates were pretty liberal, and tolerant, though i went to med school
in canada, so my experience with med school in the us is limited to what
i've observed  from a different perspective. my observations over more
than 20 years in the us lead me to believe that 1) us society is becoming
more conservative 2) college students still tend to be more liberal than
the general population but..3) us med students reflect the values of the
general population more than the student population. (we're talking hard
working, major-goal directed here...and they definitely don't have as
much fun as i had in my student days. but then the us worker is second
only to japan in the number of hours worked per year, so i guess that's
the norm for this society). it was cultural shock (and disappointment)
for me (schooled in a more "british" tradition) to find out how hard it
was to get my fellow residents to party. my motto was (is) work hard,
play hard, just don't try to do them at the same time. theirs was work
hard and party in moderation, politely , if at all.
anyway deb, don't let them off easily, and keep calling them on it.part
of *their* education. i have met a few bigoted assholes (small-minds,
large egos) in the medical profession, but fortunately they are still a
minority.if you don't have tolerance and empathy for your fellow humans
you're a lousy doctor, no matter how skilled. i'll be the first to admit
however that black humor( which can appear to represent callousness..but
doesn't necessarily) is an important survival skill. the more stressful
the environment the more you'll need a sense of humor (and if it is
slightly perverted all the better);=)
so much for my words of ?wisdom. obviously i vote in favor of education
(from the latin duce..to lead , ie to lead out.) but i think we should
have more apprenticeships or programs that high school grads can enter if
they are not ready for college, learn a skill/trade and then when they
have a better idea of what rings their bell, they can go back and
appreciate it more.
who recalls one professor ( a very good one) muttering something about
"throwing fake pearls before genuine swine"

enuff..

hey ig folks,

the indigo girls fan survey version iii is now available to be
filled out - the url is http://www.fl.net.au/~sherlyn/igsurvey.
if you don't have www access or your browser doesn't support
forms, you can mail me (sherlyn@fl.net.au) and i'll send you
the email version.

i won't be able to start tallying up the results for a few days
because my fnarkin' computer died in a major way last night, but
i expect that after i've thrown it off our 3rd-floor balcony a
few times (look out cats :), it'll lose its hellaciousness and start
working again... or else...

could someone please pass the message on the newsgroup?  thanks.

best to all,
sherlyn

ps - yen - susan stuff went in the mail yesterday.  i've had it ready
        to post for a week!  shoulda mailed me sooner ;)... btw, you
        and lorinda better not throw the survey results again, or i'll
        send greg flamer round to imitate amy ray at you...

subject:      how to get no curfews!

okay i am reposting this...sorry other branches, if you were way to busy
already !  (but i'm guessing by the number of responses i got that you
weren't.....)  look for your proper astrological sign and send email to
the person on that sign, and they will tell you where to send your 90 min
tape and padded sase.

hey there y'all,

okay, the tape tree should now be in place to get your copy of "no
curfews"
my personal bootleg compilation tape. to get a copy of the tape simply
write to your branch (sign) and get their mailing address. once you have
that you need to send them a blank 90 min tape, a stamped and return
addressed envelope so they can mail it back to you easily , and a note
reminding them that your blank is for a copy of no curfews (very
important!
some branches are on more than one tree--so they need to know exactly what
you want).
what's on this tape? some of my favorite live versions:

side a
ballad of squeaky fromme (6/10/90 wfrg)
southland in the sprintime (unknown show)
prince of darkness (3/19/88 carrboro,nc)
everybody's waiting... (5/17/88 wrek)
chickenman (8/9/90 the roxy-atlanta)
romeo and juliet (4/27/91 university of rochester)
the woman in me (8/9/90 the roxy-atlanta)
the water is wide (club r&r)
i wanna be your lover (unknown show)
love's recovery (6/21/91 red rocks)

side b
no way to treat a friend (4/18/91 blacksburg, va)
weakness in me (unknown show)
holy city (golfing buddy bootleg)
hey jesus (11/13/87 chapel hill, nc)
pushin' the needle too far (shades of indigo)
play it again, sam (4/22/90 washington, dc)
fugitive (iwtoc)
down by the river (nff '95)
reunion (7/1/95 radio session 1)
closer to fine (7/1/95 radio session 1)

the people below are branches of the tape tree.   most of them have
already
gotten their tape to me and i have dubbed them and sent them back already.

subject:      thoughts on hope/blood quantum

ok, i just got back from the cd store and put in the honor disc 2 and am
guilty of skipping right to track 8. this is my 4th straight listen of
'blood quantum' and i love it. i've heard them do it in concert and then
over and over again on the boots and i was a bit surprised at first listen
as to how "soft" this version sounds. in concert amy screams out the
"genociiiiide" and here her voice sounds more breath-y. but that's cool, i
now like both ways of doing it. maybe this is really biased (ok, it *is*
biased) but if i had never heard ig before and i heard this song it would
make me want to hear more of their music. i love the eclectic arrangement.
and when emily's voice comes in, so sweet and clear, ooooh shiver. :)
there are some nice crescendo movements in the song too, but the girls are
known for that.

i had to special order honor. hmm... i really hope the store orders more
of the honor cd, i bet people would pick it up if they saw it and liked a
couple of the bands. oh i will have to listen to sherman alexie on honor
next, he is a very popular new writer right now and he went to washington
state university in pullman (woo, both my brothers go there).

i also bought the new bragg cd "william bloke." i am on the bragg list and
the vote seems pretty split for love/hate. i am actually scared to listen
to this cd! what if i hate it. hmm... imagine waiting ~5 years for a new ig
cd and finally having it in your hands. this was almost as bad as the wait
between joshua tree and acthung baby (rattle & hum never counted much for
me, oh the shame!) i think i'll listen to blood quantum a few more times :)

subject:      vligc: miscellaneous

hey y'all--
  misc. that's clark humphrey's column in the stranger, the only good seattle
paper, which i miss.  ahem, don't mind my venting.  i'll be home in 3 weeks
anyway, what am i complaining about?
  i'm not up to date listwise at the moment, b/c i just got back from a
little trip to bryn mawr, suburban philly, and wilmington, del.  went to bryn
mawr to see an old friend, and made some new ones, including converting
someone to this list (say hello, christina!  isn't she cute, y'all? ;)  ).  i
was supposed to meet christina webb, a listie from swarthmore, but i ran out
of time.  little did i realize that owning at least 3 ig albums is an
admissions requirement at bryn mawr! (i'd abbreviate it, but...)
  ok, here's a hypothetical question, ala calvin and hobbes: what if i bought
the honor cd for a really good price at a used music store?  would any of it
go to the campaign, or no?  well, anyway, i'm sorry, but it was on sale for
$12.99 and i hadn't seen it anywhere else.  and then my stoopid friend was
*studying*, of all things, so i couldn't listen to it until now!  all this
music is so lovely!!  the only bad thing is that they didn't include lyrics (
dang i wish i could hear better!).  oh, and here's a just plain dumb
question: why is it honor1?  is it meant to be the first of a series?
  anyway, then i went to visit my uncle and aunt and their 2 kids and the new
baby!!  (awww)  and then, i visited my grandparents for a few days.
everybody go write a note to your grandparents (if you're lucky enough to
still have some); they're cooler than you think!  mine, anyway.  we went to
this exhibit called talking pictures at the art museum.  has anyone else seen
it?  what it is, is a bunch of people, some famous, some not, talking about
the picture that speaks to them the most.  it's in their own words, in an
audio-thingy you hold up to your head.  some were really good, like sandra
cisneros, isabel allende, dennis hopper, the rev. jesse jackson, and the one
with the auschwitz photos; and some were duds--don't listen to the joan
rivers one!!  but as a whole it's a good idea, and there were more good ones
than bad ones.  go see this if it comes to your area.  it's not boring.
  and just now i peeled some apples for a rosh hashana recipe with my mom.
alla you jews on the list (and everyone else too): have a good, round, sweet
year.
love,

yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
reggi, you rock!!  i did americorps between high school and college, and it
sure confirmed my college aspirations.  i gained a lot in terms of work
experience and life experience that people have been talking about.  people
skills.  i'm white, and my job was in washington, dc, so 90% of the people i
worked with were african-american.  it was an eye-opener to be the in the
minority for once.  and i conquered my unease about older people.  and it
certainly showed me how unrealistic it is to try to live on $100 a week--just
imagine if you had children and/or a significant other!  also it gave me time
to stall.  in the winter and spring of my senior year, i first couldn't
decide where i wanted to go, then didn't want to go to more school at all.  i
think that americorps has wide enough a range of jobs to satisfy a whole
bunch of people, and you can do it at any time: before college, in between
years, afterwards, to pay off student loans.  (oh, i should explain: when you
finish a year, you get $4,725 for secondary education.  and during, you get
healthcare, childcare if you need it, and a *small* salary.)
sorry, y'all, for going off like this.  it's just that americorps is one of
my favorite things because it allows people to serve our country without
killing people, and we really do make a difference in a ton of areas.
<steps off of soapbox>  ahem.

subject:      new yorker snippet

hey y'all!

i was reading my most recent new yorker, checking out the concert listings
because even though i do not live anywhere near nyc, they usually have
interesting little snippets about the artist.  then it occurred to me
(insert lightbulb over head) that ig played nyc in early august.  (begins
frantic search for early august issues...)

so i found the issue that lists the roseland show, and i thought i would
share.  now, before i do, there are some ground rules to be observed.  :-)
please remember that this is simply a one paragraph overview of the artist
in question, and almost by definition it is a bit simplistic.  and i want
you all to read this in a very positive light because a) it was listed first
among concerts, which is a good sign, b) nice things are said, and c) the
new yorker is generally not the most forgiving of critics :-).  now, i
freely admit that the last parenthetical comment made me bristle a bit (for
obvious reasons), but i kept the above in mind and i was happy with the
overview.

that having been said, here goes (re-printed without permission):

"over the past seven years, amy ray and emily saliers have built up a huge,
devoted following with their ugly-duckling-no-more brand of folk and pop.
live, the duo alternates between ray's rebellious rites-of-passage songs and
saliers' darker unrequited-love numbers.  (saliers is also an excellent
guitar player.)  backed up by a slick band, they deliver a high-powered
show, and their (almost eclusively female) audience showers them with flowers."

ok, now, feel free to comment.  :-)

whatever,

subject:      nigc: bragg's new cd

ok, after the first listen... i know billy bragg's name has been thrown
around this list and you might buy one of his cds if you see it in a shop.
word of advice, don't make your first bragg purchase "william bloke."
it's ok but not anywhere near "talking with the taxman about poetry" or
"don't try this as home" or "worker's playtime." buy one of those three,
they are full of witty folk/rock/political(socialist) music. :)

maybe "wm bloke" will grow on me but bill's gone soft i say! all the music
sounds a bit washed out, with the exception of 1 or 2 songs. i hear
parenthood does that to you. is ok, i still think he's brilliant. :)

subject:      left me a fool

emily wrote thr song for me..i just know she did

i had the terrible misfortune of falling in love with a lady..my
therapist..she was a bbrilliant speaker, much sort after, news articles,
interviews..the whole bit..everyone thought she was great and wonderful
and intelligent..
"everybody loves you, and they want to know you're story..you go riding
out a mystery, conceled in all your glory"

but what they didn't know, and neither did i at the time..this lady was
trying to decide if she could possibly be gay..was looking for someone to
take care of her and adore her on a more personal level than just "the
masses"..so she took it upon hersalf to seduce a client ..an admiring
victem willing to do anything to please..you know how you are when you're
head over heels in love.
   " but when it comes to fleah and bones. you reind me of a shallot,
only made of shawdows, even though you're not.."

so i proceeded to fall for this lady, showered her with love and gifts
and my time..listened endless hours while she spoke of herself and her
life and her dreams and her expectations of me( and how i wasn't living
up to them)..and i listened and listened , trying to figure out what it
was that i loved and wanted and needed from her...all the while getting
nothing in return..
i remember how i spent all my energy and time withaffected conversation,
trying to pry inside your mind, you are as beautiful as truth and as
empty as a shell.."
   so she continued, asking for more, wanting to start a sexual
relationship, ( i didn't, was married you see) but she persisted, said
she'd leave if i didn't,,bythis time i was so taken with her, and in love
and under her power that the thought of her leaving was too powerful so i
gave in..
"and i came to you one night ,,and you made me feel like hell. oh to
reach thru all your surface, just to find an empty shell, and to suffer
all your pride as i lay down by your side, and you swallowed up my heart,
left me a fool."
and she loved being worshiped and adored..was promoted to the director
ship of a major county hmental health facility..everyone was enamoured of
this lady..and as long as there were admirers to paint her a flattering
picture of herself, she didn't have to look at the truth and what she was
doing to a client and person who loved her more than life itself..
"everybody loves a hero, an image to create, antithesis of everything
inside our selves we hate, but you better close your eyes when its time
for them to die, because you'd hate to think the life you'd built upon
them was a lie"

but as my money faded and i started to see her as she really was, she
began to search for "greener pastures".i tried to communicate, to tell
her it didn't matter, that i still loved her even if i saw her as a
mortal and not a goddess cause i still loved her..but it was too
late..she felt she had fallen off my pedistle and couldn't bear to be
around me who saw her as just human..but the problem was..she had made
the ultimate mistake..a therapist must never have a personal relationship
with a client, neither friend nor especially sexual..so she had to "work
on me", constantly remend me that i promised i would never tell that
there had been anything between us, that it would destroy her, never mind
what the denial and abandonment was doing to me.. she would come to my
home and my work and remind me that i had promised never to tell..al the
time refusing to explain her sudden abandonment..only to remind me to
protect her..at the same time extolling the virtures of her new love..a
doctoral candidate in psych with lots of money and "professional"
ambitions..
" i resigned myself to silence, i will never blow your cover..no ever has
to know who the hero took for lover, but it comes to mind as you blaze on
as brilliant as the star, how many you've left behind, how many
casualities ther are."
so she left me, broken and alone with just the confusion of what it was
..but a true hero in the  form of another therapist came along and savd
me..worked on me for months thru suicide attempts and my constant
pleading that i could never betray  my love, how noone understood that
she really loved me..and when i finally did "blow her cover " i was so
distraught i landed in the psych ward...and called the hero to
apologize...only to find she left that same evening on vacation with her
latest casualty...there is a some what happy ending..1 year later i am
stronger and realize what she did was wrong..but it doesn't change the
fact that i love her..that i trusted ..that i believed...and confirmed my
belief that i'll never do that again..
"oh, to reach through all your surface, just to find an empty pool
and to suffer all your pride, as i lay down by your side, and you
swallowed up my heart, left me a fool, left me a fool.:

i'm sure emily wrote it for me.. sorry to waste the bandwith but it
helped..

i just wanted to comment on this because i think that with a list this big (i
think the most recent estimate was 750+ listees) there are bound to be posts
that not *everyone* will have an interest in reading.  and i am sure that we
all have very little free time, between work and school and other important
functions in our lives, and we don't want to waste that time sorting through
non-ig posts.

however, there are many subjects which will come up for discussion which are
nigc, which i can understand since many of us have similar interests and feel
comfortable enough with each other to bring up certain threads.

but this is why each email window has a subject line.  if we can try to be as
specific as possible, given the small amount of space allowed for the
subject, about the subject of our posts, then whoever is not interested in
reading that post can very easily click on 'delete'- there, no harm done.

and please, no more posts with "no subject" as a subject.  that bugs me!  try
to be a little more specific!

ok michael as one of the people who have contributed to the many political
posts to the ig list, i feel that i must respond.  imho, this board is not
solely to discuss the ig but for ig fans to come together and bond with other
ig fans.  this board, therefore, is a place where all ig fans may discuss
anything they wish.  however, it is safe to surmise that we all here as
subscribers to this list, have a true desire to come together and write and
read posts of strictly ig content.  therefore, i offer you and other new ig
listers the etiquette of the board.  should anyone on the list care to post
anything containing "non indigo girl content" it is customary to in your
post's thread put (nigc).  now that you know, michael, you may delete all
"nigc" that may hit your mailbox.

and another thing, writing for the (lol).....oh....the 4 or 5 lesbians and
the ...oh...2 or 3 straight, gay friendly ig fans that subscribe to this
list, it is safe to say that noboby here assumes anything about anybody.  as
a popular gay-friendly bumpersticker states "diversity is our strength"


(***whoa, was that considered a flame?  i've never done that before.  you
never forget your first....michael, welcome to the ig list!!!***)

peace, love & understanding,
kate

hi!  i'm a newbie and i was just wondering if any of the list members were
also members of a ig fan club???
reason i ask is...a few years ago after a great concert, i wrote a letter to
ig in care of what i thought was a fan club and i never heard anything.  now
i'm sure they get tons of mail and did not in any way expect a personal reply
but it would have been nice to at least hear about such gatherings as this
list and some of the bands and mags and newspaper articles you all are
chatting about.  i used to think i was a pretty dedicated fan but after
reading the postings for a week, i feel a little out of it...if i'm missing
the faq section-let me know via list or personal email !!

thanks!

subject:      1492

ok im sorry if someone already posted this, but i just started listening
to the entire honor1 cd and in the first song there is a beautiful spoken
word set to music. we had a discussion about the line "we were on the same
boat back in 1492" from amy's "shame on you." was it 1492? i am too lazy
to get out my boot and ff to that song just to check. well this track,
titled "all my relations" by ulali, starts out:

"to our elders who teach of us of our creation and our past so we may
preserve mother earth for ancestors yet to come, we are the land.

this is dedicated to our relatives before us, thousands of years ago, and
to the 150 million who were exterminated across the western hemisphere in
the first 400 years time, starting in 1492."


if you don't have this cd, you really want it. :)

you can visit honor the earth's website and order the cd at

thank you, anna, for appreciating humor.  ok for the record (and if anyone
else is still confused and thinks i'm amy, you really need to re-examine
the word gullible in the ole websters)  i am not amy ray.  deb is not emily
saliers.  dwayne is not russell carter.  although sherlyn is dar williams.
joke joke joke joke.  please don't mail sherlyn thinking she is dar.
sheesh!
        again i repeat,  i am not amy ray.  i am not amy ray.  is that
clear?  now go to your room.  :)

gee deb, if you are asking a question to me, why did you post it to the
entire group?  are you always this defensive?  it doesn't answer my question
at all.  the lyrics you display hardly justify the myriad of political posts
that are not talking about specific lyrics.  to talk about political issues
belongs elsewhere.

and if you insist on carrying this discussion, may i suggest you email me
rather than try and post.  my initial post was directed at a large number of
people making political posts, which is why i posted to the group.  your post
was directed specifically at me and was an obviously blatant attempt to try
and gain group support from the majority.   most people who disagreed with me
had the courtesy to email me privately, and did so without sounding so
sarcastic and defensive and insecure.  should you insist on posting attacks
on me to the entire group, i will return in kind as i am here, which would be
a shame for the others in this group.

dear ig list*
i agree with michael---i mean there are lists to join for all these subjects
and there you will probably be able to engage in all the debates and learn
what is going on today in those issues.   this list should be about the ig's
music not their personal lives.  they give us this wonderful gift of their
talent and all we can do is pick their lives, families, habits, etc. apart
for every detail???  that's crazy-put yourself in their shoes.  sure they
want to draw attention to issues but they don't want to do our thinking for
us.  and if someone is pretending to be amy or emily, i think they need to

under-appreciated singer/songwriters that are out there trying to do what ig
did....perhaps i would even like to know about other fans and what they are
doing in their cities, colleges or lives that make them interesting.  but it
is not necessary for me to know, for instance-if emily smokes, what she
smokes, when she smokes, if she quit, when she quit, etc, for me to enjoy
their music.  if its a cute or funny antedote-great but if its irrelevant to
the list, you all can email eachother outside the post to your hearts
content.  now don't think this is a flame because i think everyone is funny
and enthusiastic and well-meaning-this is imho!

don't worry

marajuana is not as hamful as tobacco, and you could not possibly smoke as much
joe as you can cigaretts because of the residual effects.  or maybe that's the
primary effects.

i just wanted to let everyone know that the list shirts have been ordered
and i expect to receive them sometime the week of the 22nd. as soon as the
get them i will priority mail them out to those who ordered. between the
two orders 328 shirts were sold. thanks for such a terrific response.
neilly once said "the shirts will never happen - this list can't decide
anything." i have one saved for him for when he comes back :)

once again we did get more orders than anticipated so i expect some money
to be left over. once i pay the bill in full i will do a little math and
post to the list what was left over. this time any overage will go to the
honor the earth campaign. i expect a fairly decent donatation will be made
on behalf of the list -- i'll keep you informed.

also, i have not received payment from the following folks. some of you
have contacted me so i know why i don't have you order yet, but i really
need to get this part of the project taken care of. a shirt will not be
sent to you if i don't have your payment. if it's on it's way, please let
me know. if it's not, let me know that too.

subject:      article:  hopeful lyrics 11/22/85

hopeful lyrics highlight music by atlanta-based indigo girls
by edward o. marshall

in a world chock full of stress, violence and mounting tension, it is indeed
refreshing to hear, once again, of idealistic visions of peace, love and
universal accord from such musical talents as the atlanta-based duo the
indigo girls.

those hopeful lyrics, seemingly written for 1960s flower- child, folk-rock
concerts, come across easily, sometimes subconsciously, through 'pure and
simple' harmonies and a polished blend of acoustic guitar work. rhythm
guitarist amy e. ray and lead guitarist emily a. saliers mix a deep,
powerful, gutsy voice and a higher, more lyrical voice, respectively, to
reinforce an overall, thought-provoking idealism. though their message may
remind of the 60's, the duo is clearly of the 80's, admitting english
influences of dire straits and elvis costello. but, then again, leaving
contemporary, driving rock, they return to the 60's and 70's again, to pick
up with bob dylan, joni mitchell, carole king and james taylor.

the bulk of their material is original. and, if classified, they believe
their music is called "intense, acoustic, folk-rock."

though the girls were youngsters when carole king's "tapestry" was released,
even then they were finding musical talents of their own, on guitars, while
attending elementary and high schools together in the atlanta area.

during those years, home-basement practice sessions let the girls try their
wings by "working up a number for the pta," says ms. saliers. now, after
years of practice, they often play cover material from many of the era's
greats, as well as their own tunes.

the indigo girls have been playing together professionally for about three
years, mostly in the atlanta club circuit. and they've developed a sizable
following, although they have not recorded anything yet. both girls have
tried going solo, but as ms. saliers says of playing alone, "you can't play
lead and rhythm guitar at the same time." the strength apparently lies in
the mix.

as they write in a description about themselves, "the indigo girls want
their music to be thought-provoking. they enjoy recordings, but the magic of
the act lies in their live performances, intensity, singing from the heart,
a range of facial expressions, moving to the melodies. each song is chosen
for what it says to people."

in my opinion, if it sounds good, it is good.  play a few different
makers and get a feel for them.  do you like the sound?  which one
sounds better to you?  do you like the way it frets?  meaning, is it
easy to hold the strings down with no buzz sounds.  i have played for
years, and everytime i get a new guitar, i go through the same process
everytime.  although, now i look at guitars in a deeper and more tech.
way than before.  when you get down to it, the sound is what's
important.  takamine makes great guitars, i like 'em.  some people don't
like them, so play and listen for the right one.  just play!

i'm sending my reply to the list simply because i think it's totally unfair
that someone should take the opportunity to slam another list member and
then suggest that any follow up email should be done privately. i don't
think that's fair, especially when the post that caused this wasn't meant
in an attacking manner at all. so please, dear fellow list members, bear
with me  :)...

dear michael and others who may hold similiar views: i was merely
attempting to answering your question. i sent it to the list (1) because
you asked the list  (2) because others had responded to your question on
the list and (3) because the point that i wanted to make was an important
one. i felt others who may have been questioning the same things as you
could benefit from what i had to say.

i am very sorry to hear that you feel the lyrics i posted hardly justify
the political posts that appear here. actually i didn't post those words to
justify anything; i posted them to demonstrate the essence of the ig
message. they aren't just lyrics. for many they are, to paraphrase emily "a
message to our souls." those words appear on the back of the ig-list
t-shirt and i think they do a damn good job of summing up the philosophy of
ig and of this list. amy in particular has challenged us to not be
complacent. many on this list have answered that call. the issues that are
brought up here simply demonstrate that.

no sir it was not, and i am so sorry to hear you feel this way. i am who i
am and have no need to shore up support for my opinions. they have the
merit to stand on their own.

i don't understand this personal attack at all. did i even come close to
using such words towards you? did i question any aspects of your character?
no. i simply posted the words that appear on the list t-shirt. it's a
beautiful message and one that i hope will make an impression on many
people and get them to think and act. please read those words again. please
see that there was nothing "sarcastic and defensive and insecure" in those
words or mine. you asked why political posts are on this list. i sent you
messages that amy and emily have sent to us calling us to action. many have
responded and that's why political posts appear here from time-to-time
(hang around awhile and you will see they don't even come close to
dominating the list. the majority of the time they are posted for
informational purposes only. it just so happens that you came on board when
some important issues where voted on in congress this week).

anyway, i hope i did a better job this time answering your (and others who
felt the same) question.

ok, have you ever looked at the inside of a bong? all that stuff coats
your insides and i should know. i coughed up black phlem for 15 years.

i feel much better now that i have been off the stuff for 6 years.
(thanks for asking ;-)  )

it does make me very uncomfortable to read posts about drug habits of
the girls. that is one of the dangers of this type of communication.
any little incident can be spread to the 4 corners of the earth.

in the course of my conversation with that scottish lass gail (hiya
gail!) i mentioned i had a granola bar for lunch, and gail doesn't
seem to know what this is and asked me to describe it.

how does one describe a blooming granola bar?!! can anyone
help me out here?

please don't clutter up the list with your particularly witty
description of a granola bar 'cause i don't wanna get burnt by
flames, or mail gail 'cause i don't wanna overflow her mailbox
and have her get peeved at me (i can do that quite well on my
own thank you...hi deb!, the sensitive, defensive and insecure
one! ;)  so just e-mail me it privately.

sorry if anyone thinks this is stupid, but i thought it was kind

subject:      i'm back, map question, and missed 'em by that much....

hi...so good to be back with y'all after a summer away...but i see we are
still arguing about amy smoking. it's good to have some stability in my
life from this list. :)

ok, so i had no email access this summer and had to find out from my
trusty newspaper that ig were coming to phoenix (well, mesa) (where, btw,
you can't smoke anywhere in public anymore since they passed a rather
extreme city ordinance where even outdoor pay phones are public places,
although we all ended up lighting up sooner or later during the show).

my first question is: what up with my mailing from russell carter-land
coming so far into the tour? i was leaving for a road trip from phoenix
to new orleans and all i wanted out of life was internet access so i could
know the tour schedule and plan my cities accordingly, but i had no
access, and every radio station i called was clueless. so when i returned
to phoenix, there was my mailing, and i found out that the night i chose
to drive to memphis instead of austin, ig were in austin, and that day of
my return home, when i had been in las cruces a mere six hours earlier,
they were in las cruces. to say i freaked out was an understatement.
neighbors and neighbors of neighbors heard me screaming, and, well, yes i
did go on for quite a while. my friend said, "what's the big deal--aren't
you seeing them here?" he just really did not understand. so i'm hoping
you all will sympathize. :) and also tell me--did your tour schedules
arrive halfway through the dates?

but anyway, i enjoyed the show, blah blah blah, and my question is:
why exactly "map"? i mean, i *know* it's a demo tour and all...but is
there something more behind the word map i'm just not getting? please,
enlighten my clueless brain. i bought the shirt, i might add.

fwiw, i am in my fifth and final year of college and all i could think
while reading everyone's messages about college education was "damn!
i have senioritis bad."

so don't be throwing stones,
linda

ok, while we're on the topic of marijuana vs. cigarettes, i felt that i
should comment.  though i have never smoked either, i have read a lot about
the subject, & i know a lot of people who smoke one or the other.  b/c you
hold smoke from pot in your lungs longer than cig smoke, it has more damage
in the long-run.  i know someone who has smoked weed regularly for oh, 30
years or so, & who now has horrible bronchial problems.

>i'd rather hear that she smokes herb over tobacco , at least you get a buzz
while you torturing your lungs!
leprechaun sd

plus, this so called "buzz" affects your brain negatively, makes you forget
things, etc.  i'm not knocking anyone for smoking anything, i'm just
attempting to clear up dicrepancies here.  and to hear that a & e smoke
anything at all disturbs me, b/c it is proven that smokes harms your lungs,
& consequently your voice, & who would want to harm vioces as beautiful as
theirs?  that's just my take on the subject.

someone inquired (privately)as to the origin of the:
great grape nuts debate on the list...
i amused myself so greatly in answering that i feel compelled to
share it with the list (...insert evil cackle here ...). so for the benifit
of all of
new kids on block (aaaalll are weeeeelcome...step into the liiiiight )
here is my version of our secret shame........[ here is where everything
gets bluury as we depart into a flashback....do do do do....]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
well it started *shudder* after the ig at new orleans concert....
the  *evil* indigo boy (bert ;) posted a recipe for a flavor of ice cream
for the folks at ben and jerry's called "indigo swirls" (cute, huh ?)
that recipe included grape nuts....and a large amount
if posts followed regarding grape nuts (someone didn't know
what they were...) it was out of control (unlike political posts;)
the most horrifying aspect of this sad chapter in ig list history...
were the bad puns *shudder* (isn't that a capital offense ? well...
it should be ;) [just kidding !!!!!!]

yurs truleeee,

lee merriwether

having never taken more than four or five drags off of joints in my life, i have
to admit you would know better than me what the real harmful effects are.  it
just seems hard for me to believe that anyone could smoke enough mj to cause
cancer.  i've also heard, but not from anyone who would reallu know, that there
is not really any evidence to support the claim that smoking marajuana will even
cause cancer.  at any rate, you can imagine the effects of breathing any kind
of smoke into your lungs.

at point my volleyball coach and trainer made was that most people who smoke
marajuana only do so about once or twice a week, but people who ingest caffine
take massive amounts in coffee, and do it every morning of everyday of their
life.

deb, i hate to break this to you, but amy ray and emily saliers are not gods.
they are wonderfully talented musicians, yes, but they are not supernatural,
and each is not any better a person than you or me.  calling us to action?
answering their call?  give me a break.

>dear michael and others who may hold similiar views:

deb, by ending your post "does that answer your question michael?", and
addressing me as  "dear michael" to the group when i know i am not so dear to
you, i think you are on very thin ice by saying you are not being sarcastic.
i think you know yourself it could have been worded better, deb.

so, you'd rather discuss this in public?  fine.  you may think it's important
for the people of this group to hear your comments, just like i think it's
important for them to know that there are other types of people out there who
like the indigo girls and their music, even if they are politically different
from them.  to assume that everyone on this list is uniform in their
political beliefs is presumptuous at best.

subject:      grapenuts and 1200 curfews

the grape nut debate was a secret shame??  i disagree!!  i was proud of our
grape nut debate--i refuse to be ashamed of debating grape nuts!!  in this
day and age, i should be able to walk outside with a bowl of grape nuts
without fear of reprisal!!  at this very moment i have two boxes of grape
nuts on my kitchen counter--i refuse to stash them in the cupboard so
visitors won't know!!  besides, i used to fall off my chair laughing at the
grape nut posts (post makes grape nuts, ya know).  indeed i forwarded the
grape nuts debate to all my friends around the internet--so really it's not
a secret, and i'm not ashamed!!

:)


on other topics, someone asked why 1200 curfews was "twelve hundred"--i
think it's because they went through about 1200 recordings of live shows to
find the cuts they wanted for the album--at least i think i remember amy
saying something like that in some interview.

i don't know many people that pass a cigarette of any type around and around
in a circle of people...   and besides, when i talked to amy afterwards, she
was definetly a little loopy! (and i have video to proove it!) a quote from
amy at that moment "there goes my bus...bye bye bus!".
i don't want to get flamed for "turning in " the girls!  many artists smoke
dope to get in touch with that "other side".  just listen to some of amy's
lyrics sometime... :)

nope not gods (or godesses either), but i do believe there is a call to
action in their music.

        "i gotta get outta bed and get a hammer and a nail
         learn how to use my hands.
         not just my head and think myself in a jail
         now i know a refuge never grows
         from a chin in a hand and a thoughtful pose
         gotta tend the earth if you want a rose."

                        -- e.s.

        "i will not be complacent"

                        -- a.r.

calls really don't get much clearer than that.

note though (1) its a call, not a demand -- individuals are free to do
what they like [no supernatural powers =)] and (2) the call is to
get off one's butt, not what to do with that butt when its moving!
yeah, there are some general themes that most folks agree with --
love good, hate bad -- that sorta thing.

now i don't agree with all the causes they put in the liner notes.
there are many ways to foster love, peace, and understanding in the
world.  some are at odds with each other.  some get labeled
conservative, other liberal.  its unfortunate, the labeling, because
it facilitiates us to dismiss ideas without really hearing them.  so
it goes.

still all ideas (right wing, left wing or fuslage) need to be aired
and acted upon in order for them to come into fruition -- that's the
point.  part of that is informing each other when something
interesting comes down the pike -- like a presidential race.  it
should be labeled nigc so people can avoid it if they like, but i
guess i don't see the harm.

> to assume that everyone on this list is uniform in their

to believe that would be absurd, i don't think anyone does.
