subject:      (nigc) virus alert.. mayday mayday...aarrgghhhhh!!!!!

sorry...i had to...please don't spam me...

beware*********beware*********beware*********beware

             it may already be too late !!!!!!!!!

there is a new virus on the 'net. called "the end times virus" this nasty

program is spread via e-mail. it's the latest of a new strain of viruses

called  "prions" which were developed by the nsa for international internet

security. prions aren't even computer viruses in the traditional

sense, rather they are a new kind of self-extracting, self executing

binhex algorithm which can bypass all known forms of computer security.

there is no defense.

      what does "the end times virus" do?

the end times virus is spread via e-mail. every time you send mail to someone

through the 'net, it runs the risk of picking up a portion of "the end times

virus" code. when all parts of the virus are stored in a given system, the

program will self compile and self execute. "the end times virus" will then

begin an infinitely regressive binary loop, which will increase the

clock speed of your cpu. the net result of this increase in clock speed

will be an increase in the percieved passage of time.

      how can i tell if "the end times virus" has infected my system?

the first clue will be when a task that used to take "x" amount of

time seems to take longer. things that haven't happened yet will then

begin to occur.  eventually, the future will gradually merge with

the present, and then rapidly recede into the past. your computer

system will become obsolete at a much faster rate. your car will

depreciate in value. events, such as birthdays, weddings, vacations,

etc. which seemed to be far in the future will, before you know it, be over.

you will age rapidly, sometimes as much as 365 1/3 days per year!!

your children are not immune! they, too, will age rapidly, sometimes

even more rapidly than you. eventually the future, as you know it,

will cease to have meaning for you. it will become one with

the past, and, eventually, will run out all together.

      what can i, as a concerned, thinking individual do about this threat to

      our modern way of life?

there are a few steps you can take.

      1) format your hard disk, without backing it up.

           scientists have found that this is the only way to eliminate this

           threat from infected systems.

      2) get rid of your car! contact the e-mail address at the bottom

         of this message, and highly trained technicians will come and

         remove your car free of charge for proper disposal.

      3) live for the moment!! it may be all you have left. nobody is

         going to have fun for you anymore.

      4) spread the word! let everyone you know hear about this threat, call

         them, write to them, forward this message to them. get the word out!!

***note from eric: this is in fact sarcastic, if you didn't guess. it is pointing out some of the sillyness of worrying about an e-mail virus.

back to lurking...

subject:      unsolicited solicitations

david complained that he had received unsolicited mail regarding hte or
some similar cause after posting a message to the list.  i think this was
probably more of a coincidence than anything.  i've been on this list for
almost a year (except for a six week period that i usubscribed  earlier in
the fall) and i rarely receive any hte related e-mail.  this is purely my
opinion, but i don't look at hte mailings and socially/politically
oriented mailings as "spam" (junk e-mail).  i wish i received more of
those kinds of mailings.  what i dislike are the numerous messages i
receive each day advertising get-rich-quick and/or multi-level marketing
schemes,  and stuff like what cyberpromotions (eeek!) used to flood my
mailbox with.  hte is a legitimate organization/campaign and should not,
imho, be placed in the same category as cyber advertising.  i could see where one
might receive a message if they happened to post an hte-related message
or a message regarding a native american issue, since i believe there
are people associated with/active in hte that are subscribed to the list.
hte promotes awareness of and action for native environmental, etc.
causes.  it is not a for-profit venture.
i think there are a lot of people on this list that share amy's and emily's
interest and concern for the earth and indigenous peoples (i know of quite
a few people).  maybe i misinterpreted david's post (i know y'all will
*quickly* let me know if i did<g>), but i got the impression that maybe he felt
like people associated with such organizations subscribe to the list for the
purpose of reaching people who might be interested in their particular
cause.  i'm sure that probably is the case, after all, there are people
associated with other *artists* who post to the list, because this list's
musical tastes are so broad.  i don't see anything wrong with that, personally,
but that's just me.  david has brought up an interesting issue, though.
anyone else have any thoughts about this?

peace, and thanking god that cyberpromotions has gone belly up (for now)...

joan :)

hi all...
i just wanted to thank jen lucero for posting the lyrics to the songs
expected to be on the new album.  i haven't seen the girls in concert
yet (and i strongly emphasize yet!), and i don't have any boots (this is
not a plea), so this list is the only way i know the lyrics in advance.
god, i love the way they write!  even without the tunes to go with them,
the songs *sound* great to me in my head already.  man, i am  really
looking forward to this album!  thanks again, jen...  i know it took
some time and effort.

hey, i just had to tell you.  remember how my roomate is such a weird,
freak-dork?  well, she still is and she's changing rooms next semester
because (hold your breaths)  --i drink and party  (ok? i've gotten
slightly buzzed twice since august?)  forgive me if i don't believe that
is bad.  anyways, i was really disappointed that she never liked ig and
still puts her headphones on when she comes in and i'm playing them.

the point of this email, however, is that i might have recruited a new
ig fan on my floor.  she bought ig and said she likes it and listens to
it while she is going to sleep.  it's a start.

feeling like a victorious and *true* (but broke) ig fan

whoa!  wait a minute here!  who says you have to have seen them live
or have bootlegs to be a "true" fan?  i haven't seen them live
because i didn't become familiar with them until after their last
tour and they were never near me this summer.  i didn't have any
boots becasue i didn't know anyone who had them until i joined the
list.  besides, boots are fairly illegal anyway.  don't let anyone
tell you who a "true" fan is.  as long as you appreciate an artist,
that is as true as you need be.

just my thoughts...

subject:      my (incredibly random) indigo moment

hey y'all,

i thought i'd share my 'indigo moment' with you.  i'm in a (small) band
through my church's youth group (called redemption -- i voted for noah and
the animals, but no one ever listens to me), and last night we played our
first "gig" for a fundraising pasta supper.   even thought the rest of the
group (two guys) did not share my love for a&e, i convinced them to do two ig
songs.  all was cool, but everything rocked when we closed with 1*2*3.  even
though i can't sing very well, i did vocals and lead guitar, and by the
second verse i started getting really into it.  when we ended on the big,
crashing, e minor chord everyone cheered -- including the 80 year-old couple
in the front.  then, i came home and had the first indigo related dream i've
had.  i won't make you suffer through it, but the basic jist was that, now
armed with the info that she's single, i was trying to find amy and see if i
had a chance with her even though it would most likely be illeagle (sp?).
half way through my journey to reach her hotel in baltimore, i discovered
that she's actually santa claus.  it was very strange . . . must have been
something i ate . . .

alright, that's it for now.

-elizabeth

(ps: thanks for posting the lyrics!)

***********************************
random fact:  in spanish, "1 2 3, nothing's for free" is "uno dos tres, nada
es gratis," so it rhymes in at least two different languages!  well, i
thought it was interesting . . .

okay, i told myself that i wouldn't post all week b/c i've spent the week
complaining about how busy i am...and reading my list mail :)  but i'm
breaking a promise.  sue me, ponygirl :)  anyway...i think it's incredibly
funny when, before hey jesus on the chapel hill boot, emily says "amy ray,
pretty good for a girl!" then "i'm going to do 16 solo songs in amy's absence
right now...i was thinking that would bring her back..."  that makes me laugh
all the time!
oh yeah, and i wanted to tell everyone, cuz i'm so happy, that my cousin that
i posted about last week has come back to her house in atlanta and is with
her family and says she isn't going to leave again!  i didn't find her while
i was there, and we all missed her a lot, but were thrilled when she came
home!  i'm thanking whatever kind of deities there may or may not be for all
this wunnerfulnes....:)
oh, and abs, if your email is back, i really will write to you soon, i
promise!
love y'all....

subject:      nigc: happiness. ellen. email.

on email....there are 882(!) messages from this listserv in my emailbox
right now, thanks to my upcoming finals, and i just wondered whether most
of y'all read the digest or what.  anyone with a unix account (most
university accounts are unix) might want to know about two programs called
"filter" and "procmail" usually included with your account which will
automatically sort your email.  that way you can get the mail individually
(easier to read & respond than digest form, i think) but have it put into
a separate folder automatically so your mailbox doesn't fill up, and you
can read it at your leisure, and you can find the non-ig mail in your box.
best ways to find out about "filter"  and "procmail": search on the web
for a guide, then ask a tech-y friend to translate it into english for
you, and show you how to get the program to work on your account.  this
has been a public service message, because the cool things you can do with
email shouldn't be a secret.  i hope no one considers it a waste of
bandwidth.

on happiness....i've just started a new web project, collecting answers
from anybody and everybody to the question "what makes you happy?"  check
it out at http://www.stwing.upenn.edu/~abstein/happiness and contribute
if you want.

on ellen.....all the perceptive commentary from this list has got me
thinking about it at a level i usually reserve for english papers.  the
"listen up everybody, i'm gay" variety of coming out isn't ellen's style
at all, i agree.  in my experience it doesn't happen like that much in
real life, that's just sort of a straight society's public
perception....originality is undervalued in hollywood.  whatever happens
on the show, ellen morgan is not straight......this was made a fact when
the idea was "leaked" to test advertiser response....sexual orientation is
just not determined by advertiser response...only a character's degree of
outness can be influenced by this.  so i like what they've been doing with
the hints.  her friends have already probably figured it out, or at least
suspected.  here's my suggested "coming out episode":  ellen goes with
friends to see some up-and-coming band...it turns out to be in a gay club
but no one realizes that beforehand.....at some point the friends wind up
separated, ellen sits down winds up in awkward conversation with some
woman....later in the evening the woman asks her out for the next
evening....ellen gives a "sure, i mean no, i mean--yeah" kind of answer as
everything registers.  the friends notice the two together from across the
club, give each other questioning looks.  as the friends--including
ellen--leave, one of them says something about a time.  two days later,
ellen comes in to work, audrey asks how her date was, ellen hesitates then
says "it was good," and that's it.  the next couple of episodes would show
the progress of the relationship--which fizzles b/c of lack of common
interests or values or something (maybe the other woman hunts ;)-- but
wouldn't deal with sexuality per se.  all the expected plotlines
(homophobia, figuring out if so-and-so is a lesbian too) should come
later.  when the company/producers/media talk in terms of "coming out,"
they are really concentrating on a gay character's interactions with
straight characters, rather than on ellen getting to know _herself_
better, which is a rewarding experience whether its sexuality or just the
fact that you like reeses pieces or chess or the indigo girls.  it's a
bit like christmas in america turning chanukah into a big deal, when it's
really only a minor holiday, and ignoring yom kippur or sukkot, which are
way more important religiously.  so far i think the show's done a good
job with the hints of staying true to ellen's character.....i hope
they'll continue.   on a related note, i finished that biology paper
about bisexuality.....anyone who wants to read it just email me.

good luck and perseverance for finals,
audrey

subject:      thanks to everyone on the list (igc)

well, i am very new to the list and this is my first time to post.  i feel
like i need to say that seeing that all the new members are somewhat
intimidated by all you old timers.  i don't think anyone likes to be
flamed... especially when they're still very new to all of this.

anyway, i just want to offer up a huge thank you to everyone who gave
information for the c.d. "levees that break in my heart."  my best friend got
me started on the indigo girls almost a year ago.  you're all probably
thinking, "wow, big deal."  but in mississippi it is a big deal for the
indigo girls are rare to none and i know the affect the girls have had on me
in the past year.  okay, i am getting to the point, i promise.  so now i live
in oklahoma and they are still rare, but not nearly so much as in mississippi
and i was looking for an awesome christmas gift for my friend and what can i
say, but a new i.g. c.d. that she's probably never heard of, is the most
perfect gift imaginable.  what a relief for me who has been going crazy
trying to find that ultimate gift for the loved ones in my life.

the other point of this letter is to beg for anyone who can tell me one. if
there is a good place in oklahoma to get some i.g. stuff and if they ever
come here to play and two. if anyone can tell me of any concerts that are
playing the week of march 8-15 in the cities of d.c., boston, atlanta, or
dallas.  that's my spring break and i want to go somewhere cool and possibly
see the concert of my life.

my first, but not my last,

you know, computers aren't that expensive...around here, you can get a used
ibm-compatible and a modem for 400-odd dollars. such a system is inadequate
for many things, of course, but it does fine for basic net access. as for
net access, public access unix sites can be found in many cities, which
provide cheap or free internet access (perhaps only email and usenet, but that
may be enough). something to think about.

hey y'all, thanks to my dad who picks up every single free thing he can find,
no matter what, i have the december issue of pulse, that tower records
magazine.  in it, to my great surprise (he's still gloating cuz i don't take
every freebie i run across :) was a tiny thing about amy...including a really
cute cartoon of her (made me laugh, anyway).  it's just about this group dew
that got amy to sing on their recording, a spoof-assault kind of thing on ted
nugent's _stranglehold_.  anyway...i enjoyed it, it's pretty funny even
though short.

subject:      re: ellen . . . and i've managed to make it igc!

alright, i've been reading all these posts about ellen morgan and should she
or shouldn't she and whatnot.  i've just been waiting for the right moment to
intrude, and here it is, so here i go.  this is my plot for how she should
come out, even though it will never happen this way:

amy has written a book of poetry (it's not a prefrence over emily, it's only
that amy seems less reserved.), and she's going on a small promotional tour
for it.  one of the book stores she's doing a book signing in is
buy*the*book, where ellen is manager.  ellen, being a huge ig fan (of course)
is really excited about the whole thing.  when she meets amy on the big day,
she goes into one of her flustered-embarrassed things, but finaly calms down
as the day goes on, and she gets more relaxed after she and amy have gotten
to talk a little.  the signing is only from 12 to 3, or 12 to 2 (i don't know
how long they go), so amy leaves at the appropriate time and that's that.
later on, though, towards around an hour before closing time, the obnoxious
owner guy (who earlier on in the episode would have made some semi-rude
remark about amy being gay in ellen's presense) realizes that amy left (i'm
getting this from that leeds thing) her day runner organizer thing there, and
tells ellen to call her to tell her to come get it.  when she calls, ellen
explains it to amy who says she can be over in an hour and a half to get it
-- a half an hour after the store closes.  the annoying owner -- what is his
name? -- leaves and ellen sits around by herself for a 30 minutes waiting.
during this time, she starts leafing through the organizer and finds some
songs that amy is working on and really likes them.  just then amy shows up
and ellen lets her in.  they get to talking over coffee, and you start to get
the feeling that ellen likes amy.  they stay there for awhile until amy gets
up and says she has to be going, but here is her number and address and she
wants to keep in touch . . . and ellen's all flustered . . . and as she's
letting amy out, amy leans over and gives her a kiss (on the cheek, maybe, so
as not to offend the squimish-straight audience).  next day (it's almost
over): ellen's really torn by the whole thing because she knows what amy
wants and she knows she wants it, too, but she's only just coming to terms
with somethings.  she decides to confide in paige, who freaks out about the
whole thing and leaves abruptly to "think about it."  ellen calls into work
sick, and soon after amy shows up at ellens door with flowers because she
heard she was at home, sick.  ellen is really flattered, but then -- in a
sad, confused, puppy-dog, ellen way -- explains to amy that she's just
started to accept herself after years of denial and that she just isn't ready
to have a relationship with a woman yet.  amy's cool with it, and as she
leaves she gives ellen a hug.  then ellen closes the door and is feeling even
worse when the phone rings, and paige is on the other end saying she's
terribly sorry she reacted the way she did and that she'll stick by ellen no
matter what and then it ends.  a&e would do the theme song at the opening, of
course.

phew . . . enough procrastination!  off to arrange the fetuses in the right
order for bio.  i'm sorry about how long this was, but i was desperatly
searching for a way to make this igc.  my closing statement is that i think
she should come out, in a subtle, emotional way, and in a way where there is
audience sympathy.

-elizabeth

i know of several places where one can get either a low end 286 or mac
classic for about 200 dollars, pick up a issue of computer shopper or search
usenet, if you need windows to run juno, which provides free email, you
should be able to get a really low end system that will push 3.1 and while
your 'puter won't be running netscape 3.0 -- (mine doesn't for gawd sakes!

i think ithere should be a clarification, don't boot the cd (it is too good
and you must respect it and buy it.) but there are individual audio bootlegs
of (i believe) all of the performances, the austin show being broadcast on
the radio.


just a clarification.

aaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!   you all are sooooo sweet!  i just love you all!
thanks so much to everyone who has told me how much you are gonna miss me.
i'm getting all sad inside.  anyway,  point of this email, is that
everyone in my life seems to be on a mission to get me a computer.  my mom,
who thinks it is too funny that all i talk about is this list and the ig,
is asking around, and my mom is awesome, if anyone can get me a computer,
she can.  but, the exciting news is that my housemate, who is so amazing, i
can't even explain it,  got her sister to send me her laptop that she
doesn't use anymore.  she's just gonna give it to me!  woo-hoo!  except,
here's the problem, neither my housemate nor her sister now if a modem will
hook-up to it.  i don't know how old this laptop is, nor what kind it is.
but when i get it (probably in a couple days or so, it's being sent from
hawaii)  i'll let you all know and probably ask you all a bunch of
questions about modems and stuff.  cause i basically know nothing about
computers. it'll be a big nigc,  but for now, if anyone knows anything
about how i should go about getting a modem and finding the best deal
(cause i'm real real real poor)  on getting one, could you please email me?
i'd love you forever :)  so everyone think happy positive save sundara and
get the girl a modem thoughts! thank you thank you thank you!

okay okay i know that this is not full of indigo content but on more

here i am asking if anyone has any suggestions for my current
predicament... my girlfriend.... the most amazing woman in the world...
lives in chicago and i live in boston (sad huh?)... i plan to go visit
her in march but her mother keeps shoving it in her face that she does
not condone our relationship (homophobia)and doesn't know if i should
come... but if i do go i have to sleep in the guest bedroom and i can't
even hold the hand of my true love (at least not while her 'rents are
there).  i'm sure that more than one of you can understand the
frustration of being totally in love with someone but not being able to
express it... i just want to convince her mother that noone will ever
love her wonderful daughter as much as i do... why can't she just accept
that we are in love?  ahhh what to do what to do...
        thanks for listening to me babble about my personal life... any
suggestions or experieces would be most helpful...

broken hearted but so in love,
mary

hey everyone!

okay, the votes are in,  the party is gonna be the 14th  (sorry tracy,
jeni, and karey, and tracy's two dogs, who really don't count in this
democratic process, tee hee)

i don't know about the time yet.  so could you all please email me about
whether what time you'd like to have it, even a general time, afternoon,
evening, late evening, early morning (although, if it's early morning, i
won't go, sundara is not a morning person!!)

and why don't we make it potluck, all vegetarian, and bring your own
beverage.  probably bring your own eating stuff (plates, knives,
spoons--hey, i can show you all how i can hang 6 spoons from my face, hee,
the talent!!!)  that way everyone can be responsible for their own dishes
and we don't leave kathy and sue with a huge mess.  i'll make black bean
tamale pie.  it's yummy.

and just so i can get a general idea of how many people are coming, please
email me if you plan on coming, even if you aren't for sure, and also tell
me what kind of dish you'd like to bring.

and pj is gonna bring her guitar, so we can all sing and stuff, any other
activities are fun too, so whatever.  so email me!  yay yay yay!

peace, love, and susan,

        sundara<-- who is overcome with love for everyone, and also thinks
this will be her last post of the day, cause she's finally gonna leave the
email lab, after two hours here.  what will i do with all my free time if i
don't get email????

hi mary,

  first off, i'm straight so i can't relate exactly to your situation
involving the homophobia which may well run deeper than the typical
"you aren't good enough for my daughter" thing, but still i do have a
couple semi-solicited pieces of advice for you =)

  i'd say go, but when you do don't "try to hard" -- just be yourself!
let this woman see in you what her daughter (your gf) sees in you.
nothing you can say, nothing you can do will convince her that you are
"acceptable."  if you try too hard, you will be written off faster
than when you walked through the door.  likewise if you don't respect
this woman as the mother of your gf, even if you don't like a thing
she stands for.

however, you hold the trump card --- her daughter's happiness!
parents, even the most bigoted ones, can see that spark of happiness
in a child's eye a mile away.  and they can also feel the darkness of
disappointment and frustration that result from their "policies" and
expectations.  if your gf loves you, there will be no way mom will
miss it.  she still may not choose to accept you, she may chalk up her
daughter's reactions as "a phase" -- but she will notice.

not to go would be to give in to this woman's bigotry, thus giving her
power over the two of you.  if you want to win the princess, get ready
to face the dragon.

one side note, i wouldn't fret the seperate rooms thing.  i don't know
how old you are, but this is a standard thing in all relationships.
its her right to set the standards for her home (like no one sleeps
together unless married [yay hawaii!!!]) and its a sign of respect to
honor her wishes -- plus you put your gf in the middle of a battle
that you don't want to start.  if you want to "spend time" together,
consider a motel room.  though i have to admit, i'd be pissed off
about the hand holding restrictions too -- you and your gf need to
find a happy medium.

                                good luck!

subject:      ig in the progressive

got my progressive and susan wasnt kidding about the cartoon. they made
emily look like martha plimpton! pretty funny. you should have seen what
they did to billy bragg though in a past issue (every cartoon they print
looks like a very bad caricature, i am not sure why they continue to do
that issue after issue. even sister prejean was not spared when they
interviewed her. i wish they'd just print a photo).

the interview was great though, pretty straight-forward q&a. the
progressive is a political magazine so the interview is focused on their
politics.

i really encourage you to look into this magazine if you're at all
interested in political issues from a left perspective. i do not consider
myself a highly motivated political person. i subscribed to the
progressive last year so i could educate myself about various political
issues. i was totally out of touch with what was happening in our country
(i don't receive any american channels on my tv except this one local
station that only plays bad sitcom re-runs). this magazine has enlightened
me to various issues around the world. the writing is intelligent,
informative, and fair. it really has been worth every penny.

oh if you want to read the billy bragg interview let me know, i have it
saved on my hd and i can email it to you. it's excellent. (if you don't
know who bragg is you probably won't be terribly interested in it).

subject:      time to update those old adages

hey everyone,

it occurred to me that some of the phrases that are still
used in modern-day times are, well, old and outdated.
so it's time to update them and give them a more
modern, indigo focus.

for example:
- "it ain't over till the fat lady sings" becomes "it ain't
over until 'closer to fine'"
- "the early bird gets the worm" becomes "the early
girl gets the black beans and rice"
- "doesn't know his/her x from her/his y" becomes
(shamelessly stolen from deb reiser :) "doesn't know
his/her a from his/her e"

i know there are more but i, being me, can't think of
any more.  so i'm throwing this out there... see what
y'all can make of it.

happy happy,
sherlyn

subject:      need a new t. chapman bootleg nigc, but related..

i have had a really stressful two days, living at one moment constantly
having the "leaning over ledges, only two flights" verse in blood and fire.
i was in a crisis due to my panic disorder, the emotions were the worst i
have experienced in seven years. i thought i was insane. i'm not, thankfully
people think i am okay, and i have some incredible people who support me.
one of my professors is a feminist disabled lesbian, who really helped me
see through my self hate, i owe her. at least my sanity, and maybe more.

i am looking for one song -- a live version or concert of tracy chapman
doing "at this point in my life", i think it is a song we both share so
close together. i want to give her something, i plan on designing a cover
and it would be so appropriate. any reply would be appreciated, and i have
some more blanks so i can tape fpr others at some point.

not trying to even be grammatically correct

at the philadelphia electric factory show, i remeber her saying that she
had lost her day planner on a flight home from england, and, through sheer
serendipity, someone returned it to her with the song still included. so,
she read it over, pulled it out, and finished it off. hence, the
references to both leeds (in england) and the church burnings (in the
south). hope that helped...

subject:      paul simon, other musicians

hi everyone,

re: american tune, i pulled out my copy of paul simon's _there goes
rhymin' simon_.  at the and of the credits, it states "all songs c) 1973
by paul simon".  art garfunkel doesn't appear on this album at all.

jane scarpantoni: she's played live with ig and ferron at shows i've seen,
and i think she's played live with nanci griffith (but not sure).  she's
on kristen hall's album _be careful what you wish for_ (not on the earlier
_fact & fiction_).  seems like we've missed a lot of her work...

k's choice:  they did a cover of neil young's "rocking in the free word"
with the indigo girls 12/19/94 at symphony hall in atlanta which appeared
on the ig single "power of two" and the k's choice single "i wanna meet
the man" (i have a promo, don't know if there was a regular one).  the k's
choice single was taken from their album _the great subconcious club_ and
has 3 album cuts & 2 live tracks (including the ig one) which aren't on
the regular album.

anyone else the igs have worked with: k's choice (see above), michelle
shocked (mtv unplugged).

who has opened for ig in recent years: on the swamp ophelia tour ferron
and gherkin opened some of the west coast dates.

also, i have a extra copy of kristen hall's _fact and fiction_ (which
emily guests on).  would prefer to trade for other music, e-mail me if
interested.

cheers,
simone

subject:      (totally nigc)anne of green gables

hi y'all...
umm, my close friend and i got into a very interesting conversation last
night (at my parent's 50th anniversary party, no less ). we were discussing
"the celluloid closet" ... the movie about how gays + lesbians have been
portrayed through the years in hollywood movies. i've never seen the movie,
but hope to.
anyway, on that subject i said i thought that in the canadian adaption of
anne of green gables, from book to movie, there was definately an underlying
current of lesbianism in respects to the relationship between anne + diana.
both in the first t.v. movie, and in it's sequal. was it just wishful
thinking on my part? my friend couldn't remember, because it was so long ago
that she'd watched the films, but she thought "maybe...."
anyhoo... i know a lot of you dear listees are, if not lesbian/gay, then
very lesbian/gay positive, so i thought i'd put the question to you all. i'm
wondering if any of you sensed that current, or am i the only one?... and if
you did, do you think that anne's real struggle was betwixt her own
sexuality + her need to "conform" to society. ( i always felt she "gave in"
and settled for gilbert blythe because that was how things *had* to be, and,
after all, she could not have dianna... ) i wonder if this was lucy maud
montgomery's own cloaked theme in her original books, or if it was just
sullivan's interpretation of it in film ( or my interpretation of it in my
own reality:-) )... anyone care to comment? ( in private e-mail, of course ).
see... i have no circle in this small town, in which to discuss things like
this. fer gawd's sake, my sister could *not* see that the relationship
betwixt idgey and ruth in fgt was a lesbian one. arrrghhh!!!!....
anyhoo... peace y'all.. kim ( the goddess full o' apologies for taking up
band width... but i jest gotta know if i'm nuts or not... )<---hmmm, talk
about leaving myself wide open for hits from some o' you:-)
say... how about a musical adaption of anne of green gables???? lol... e as
anne and a as dianna??? ummmm... no... lol... me thinks, definately no!!! (
a could never be so mousy + quiet like dianna... )

hi folks,

   i kow this is more appropriate for the df mailing list, but i'm not
subscribed and this is easier sooo....

   i just saw df at the somerville theatre saturday night as part of
the songstreet "women in folk rock" festival.  um... to be honest, and
this really hurts, the df set stunk.  only part of this was the fault
of df -- rick lamachia (the promoter) ran a fairly terrible show
beginning to end, i felt bad for all the performers -- but df had
their share of the blame too.  the number one thing is that sonia had
a new band, none of which sang backup and no keyboards, and the four
of them simply weren't playing together.  sonia's voice sounded
strained knowing she had to carry the show herself.  the drummer came
in at the wrong time.  the lead guitarist couldn't lay off the wa-wa
petal (imagine "fix my life" with a wa-wa'ed guitar instead of a
keyboard and backup vocals *shiver*).

  anyway, my question is does anyone know what happened to the old
band?  was there a shake up or did they simply not make the trip
because of the weather....  i must say the current version is
presently unimpressive and i can only hope that this changes soon. *sigh*

just cause

indigo girls carry the banner for
environmental and native american issues
in honor the earth tour

by gina webb

"... it was the second largest party in reservation history and
  thomas builds-the-fire was the host. he was the host because he
was the one buying all the beer. and he was buying all the beer
because he had just got a ton of money from washington water
power. and he just got a ton of money from washington water
power because they had to pay for the lease to have ten power
poles running across some land that thomas had inherited.

  "when indians make lots of money from corporations that
way, we can all hear our ancestors laughing in the trees. but
we never can tell whether they're laughing at the indians or at
the whites. ..."

-- sherman alexie, the lone ranger and tonto fistfight in heaven

despite countless treaties and relocations to reservations,
america's first residents possess land that contains two-thirds
of the nation's uranium, one-third of
its low-sulfur coal and 15 million acres of
prime forests. in fact, next to the federal
government, native americans are the
largest land holders in the united states.

so it's no surprise that native americans
still have something the government wants.
that's the way it's always been, from the
time they inhabited lush hardwood forests
and agriculturally rich plains up to now,
when they've long since been pushed into
corners of land once considered
unfarmable, unusable desert. but even arid wastes can be mined and
exploited, as the u.s. government knows all too well.

for instance, the federal government mined uranium from more than
1,000 sites on the dine reservation in arizona, then abandoned them
  to leach radioactivity into the air and water. and, after bombing the
western shoshone nation in nevada for the past 45 years with some
900 atomic explosions, the u.s. government wants to use the
shoshone's sacred yucca mountain as a dumping ground for
high-level nuclear waste.

such atrocities are nothing new from the perspective of native
americans, whose past history includes a government "gift" of
smallpox-infected blankets and the "trail of tears" forced march from
georgia that killed more than 6,000. to them, history isn't just
repeating itself; it's never stopped.

but neither have the struggles of native americans to survive. with
few resources, little money and, until recently, no legal right to govern
themselves, native american peoples have refused to disappear.
their tribal councils prevail. they have formed some 200 grassroots
groups to resist environmental destruction of their land. they are
winning their battles.

and georgia's most celebrated folk music
duo, the indigo girls, have pitched in to
help.

emily saliers and amy ray took a course in
indian studies at emory university in 1985,
but it was years before they would return to
the issues surrounding the plight of native
americans. and it was their music and
environmentalism, rather than a commitment
to indian rights, that would lead them full
circle.

by 1995, the indigo girls were fully entrenched in the native
american cause, raising more than $200,000 during last year's honor
the earth tour, a 21-stop benefit concert tour that began in madison,
wis., on may 8 and ended june 3 in portland, ore. it stopped in five
reservation communities: white earth reservation in minnesota, pine
ridge reservation in south dakota, the hopi reservation in arizona,
the eyak community in alaska, and the jemez pueblo in new
mexico.

amy ray traces the seeds of the tour back to her dissatisfaction with
doing "one-off benefits." in the preface to a diary she kept while on
tour, ray wrote:

i had become frustrated with the state of charity shows ...
benefits that were becoming increasingly corporate. i wanted to
do a benefit project that would be different, more grassroots. i
wanted to be immersed in a cause, to gain new knowledge, to
have a direct link to activists and communities doing the
hands-on work. i wanted our audience and everyone involved in
the production to have an all-inclusive experience that would
change their very being. the cause of endangered people and
endangered species really demanded this sort of intensity. with
these thoughts in mind, planning began for honor the earth. ...

sponsored by the indigenous women's network, the indigenous
environmental network and the seventh generation fund, the tour
established a committee to award grants to native environmental
groups. "there's a committee of all-indigenous people, from all these
different organizations, and they tell us what, politically, the strategy is,
and we help implement them," ray explains. "so we're not making the
policies; we're just helping the committee with them, which is the way
it should be."

the committee awarded grants in five categories: defense of
homelands and ecosystems; protection of sacred sites; restoration and
building of sustainable communities; women's projects; and media. in
all, 41 groups received grants, each an average sum of about $5,000.

"some of these groups only need a thousand dollars," ray says. "and
they are doing effective work with a very small amount of money."

adds saliers: "they want to do it themselves. they don't want a
whole onslaught of white folks coming over to help them restore their
language."

shunning assimilation into mainstream society, traditional native
americans don't seek an accumulation of material possessions,
preferring instead to live a subsistence life. "and they're strong in their
belief," ray says. "a lot of people say, 'well, they need to get with the
times. they wouldn't be so impoverished if they went along with
technology and progress.' but that's not the issue. the issue is that
they had communities, they had a lifestyle, they had a culture -- until
we came in and conquered them."

may 8, madison, wis.: i walked into the press conference
and realized i was ... dealing with the same issues as three
  years before (during the first honor the earth tour): big
corporations screwing indians. we discussed exxon's plans
to mine billions of dollars worth of copper in a location
adjacent to the tiny mole lake reservation. the mine
would contaminate the wolf river watershed and wild-rice
beds integral to the culture and survival of the anishinaabe
(chippewa) people. ...

"indigenous people are protectors of where they live," saliers says.
"that's their responsibility. it should be ours, but we're really shirking
  it. ultimately, i think the traditional indigenous people have taken on
the load of protecting the earth."

noting the difference between a sacred approach to land and one in
which land is viewed merely as a resource, the indigo girls especially
recall the indian children, who, raised in an extended family, have a
developed philosophy about the land and live in harmony with it.
"they don't use images of dominance," ray says. "they're brought up
to live within the context of the environment rather than always trying
to subdue it. we were brought up in a different way: when i'm in the
woods, and i see a tree start to fall, i want to go ahead and push it down.
i don't just let it take its course. i want to manicure the whole  thing."

    "the message of the indian people and their ties to the land," adds
saliers, "is like the message that we both feel is going to save the
  world -- which is respect for all things living, and a sense of the way
   all things are interconnected."

  may 9: minneapolis, wis.: the afternoon press conference
    focused on the white earth land recovery project and the
    efforts of the white earth anishinaabe people to recover
  their stolen land base and to build a sustainable community
    that is environmentally and culturally sound. basically,
  they are having to buy back the land that was stolen from
   them through illegal tax forfeiture, timber barons,
    dishonest land speculators and the u.s. government.

   selected for their relevance to sites and events significant to native
    americans, honor the earth tour stops have an educational
    component along with a call for action. in addition to the concert,
   each stop features a slide show, a press conference, and distribution
  of postcards pre-printed with stands on specific issues and
   pre-addressed to members of congress. "people who come to the
    shows get a chance to really learn what the issues are, because the
   press conferences have a special focus on something that's local or at
   least in the general area," says saliers. "for instance, there'll be a
  concert in the black hills, and it might be that the moratorium on gold
    mining is about to expire."

    may 15, rapid city, s.d.: i got on my bike and headed for
   the black hills. the black hills (paha sapa) is sacred
  territory to the lakota nation and was guaranteed to them
  by a treaty in 1868 for "as long as the grass grows." five
    years later, when gold was discovered, the treaty was
   broken. ... since then, a long line of prospectors --
    including union carbide, exxon, kerr mcgee and home
    stake mining co. -- have moved in to dig uranium and
     gold. ... a 1980 supreme court ruling stated that the black
  hills were indeed stolen from the arapaho and lakota
people, and offered money as a means of settlement. the
    lakota nation has refused such settlement.

  may 16, pine ridge reservation, s.d.: we were in one of
  the poorest counties in america, with an unemployment
  rate hovering around 80 percent, an average income of
$3,700, and alarming rates of alcoholism, domestic abuse
   and fetal alcohol syndrome. the federal government has
   managed to steal everything tangible from this nation. ...
we passed the border-town bar that had only recently
  changed its sign from "no indians or dogs allowed" to
  "indians allowed."

the indigo girls don't want the public to think this is a cause they can
  pick up and put down, or something they're doing for publicity. saliers
  concedes that plenty of musicians are tied to causes, and she
  speculates that some people might have a knee-jerk reaction that
honor the earth is just another benefit for just another cause. but
honor the earth shows are different, she emphasizes, pointing to the
numbers of concert goers who approached the band afterward, hungry
for information on how to get involved.

  notes saliers: "i think that once people are introduced to the power
  of the grassroots organizations and the battles they're winning -- the
  power of the culture and the faith, not to mention the environmental
  implications -- you can't help but have your skin pricked by it."

both women feel that the steps necessary to effect change are not
  necessarily violent, nor even always visible. "people have to realize
and really believe they can make a difference," says saliers. "you can
put enormous pressure on a company by not spending your dollars on
the things they're putting out. and you can put a lot of pressure on
your government by saying you're not going to vote for a certain
politician."

for her part, ray emphasizes the power of what she calls
"village-oriented" thinking: "there's a lot of stuff to do within your own
  community, so just being aware of what's going on is important.
  within a very small realm you can do something. try to make sure
  you're responsible in your own community."

and she strongly advises learning more about indigenous cultures in
  america. "i don't mean pick up a crystal and a new age book and
become an indian, because i think that's the wrong approach," ray
says. "that's just one more way of appropriating something that
doesn't belong to us. i just mean: learn about it and respect it."

   mid june, atlanta: when i got home, many of my friends
  questioned why i, as a non-indian, wished to get involved
   in the indian government. much of the indian movement
  concerns environmental issues. it is imperative that indians
   and non-indians learn to work together on issues affecting
  the whole ecosystem. ... we can learn much from the
   indian's approach to environmentalism and from their
   cultural values, but the indians need the help of
   non-indians to preserve their land and ways. while our
  sheer numbers can help with political and economic
  support, we must recognize that the indian movement must
  ultimately be controlled by indians. it is crucial to
   recognize that the same forces oppressing indians are also
   oppressing many others.

honor, the benefit album for the honor the earth campaign, will
  be released by amy ray's daemon records on aug. 20. the
double-cd set features never-before-released tracks from bonnie
raitt, victoria williams, latin playboys, sherman alexie, exene

subject:      re: (totally nigc)anne of green gables

hey y'all.....boy was i surprised to see the subject of this post on my "in
box."  i had to open it right away because l.m. mongomery was my favorit
writer when i was a kid and anne of green gables and anne of avonlea were my
favorite movies.  in fact, one of my friends asked me what video i felt like
watching on a dreary rainy afternoon yesterday, and my natural response came
as anne of green gables, of course.  since i am the queen of procrastination
(sp?) and i have mentally been preparing to study for finals for a full 37
hrs. now, i decided to check my emial, when what to my wondering eyes should
appear, but anne content.  in all the years that i have been loyal to anne
and dianna, i never once thought that there was some underlying theme of
their friendship being more than that.  the more i think about it, anne and
dianna had the ideal friendship.  as anne put it, they were "kindred
spirits."  they were destined for each other, but in a different way than
anne and "gil."  i may be extrememly naive and stubborn, but i think anne's
resentment of confromity to society was the major trait being expressed by
lm momtgomery and kevin sullivan.  anne was my idol when i was 12.  anne had
conviction.  whatever she did and whoever she was involved with became the
object of her total and undivided attention.  she was stubborn and true to
all.  she listened to no one, had the freedom to dream as almost no one else
does, lived out every dream of her own, and was the wisest character in the
stories.  anne was every woman's tomboy.  while i was climbing trees and
going exploring in the woods, my friends were kissing boys.  that didn't
mean that i didn't like them, but i was more interested in my imagination
and the outdoors.  i am still that way now.  i love walking outside in the
evening, playing wild and crazy pranks, doing romantically stupid things,
and riding my mountain bike while my friends are at formals.  one very
ignorant "friend" of mine asked my best friend if i was a lesbian.  now just
because i would rather do other things than act like your average american
girl, doesn't mean that i don't like men.  in fact, some of my best friends
are guys.  the reason for my present single status at the moment is the fact
that the next man i date must enjoy climbing trees with me and playing in
public fountains.  until i find a man who fulfills my dreams, i will remain
single.  i think that was anne's goal.  if you remember, she spent countless
evenings reading poems about love, fantisizing about her prince, and writing
about the love of her life.  all of these involved men.  if kevin sullivan
was trying to portray anne's and dianna's friendship as more, don't you
think he would have alluded to something else in their characters.
        theirs was the kind of friendship that every girl dreams of.
granted, anne was very jealous when dianna married fred wright, but wouldn't
you be if you thought that you were losing your best (and possibly only
true) friend in the world?  i may just be denying the fact that anne and
dianna had something more and i may just be blind, but i really don't think
their relationship went beyond sisterhood.  if anyone was portrayed by kevin
sullivan as a lesbian, try marilla or catherine brooke.  we know marilla
rejected her only love, but why?  and what is the real story on school marm
catherine brook (miss brook, a.k.a. catherine with a "c")?
        if anne and dianna had more going, then great!  one of my best
friends is gay, and the two people who have had the most impact on my life
are lesbians.  my favorite artist are gay.  in no way shape of from would i
admire anne's character any less if i thought her and dianna had a deeper
love.  another thing that bothers me is the fact that megan follows, the
actress who plays anne, doesn't seem likely to have accepted the part if she
was aware of kevin sullivan's plan to change the face of the friendship to
romantic love.  i'm sure i could go on for hours on this topic, but if
anyone feels the need to enlighten me on this topic, feel free,  please
don't flame me though! sorry this took so long!  now i will attempt to open
my chem text.

                                              peace and procrastination,
                                                        mere

i know that the best show that i have ever been to is the time i saw the
inidgo girls on their swamp ophelia tour in interlochen michigan.  they
played a sem-outdoor stage where you can see a lake behind the stage.
the sun set right to the right of the stage and made the water glow a
pinkish orange.  amy wanted everyone to dance, but the guards kept
telling us that everyone would have to sit down or go home.  everyone
finally sat back down...and during the last song, closer to fine, of
course, amy yelled....dance!  whoo hoo!  was anyone at this concert?

subject:      re: best show

best show i have ever seen was portland hte june 3, 1995.  hte was very
special not just a concert but more of a ceremony.  starting with drums and
chanting - reminding me of my women's circle at home in seattle.  i did not
know what to expect all i knew was that sarah mc and ig were gonna be there.
i did not know that this was a benefit to help protect sacred native land.
the concert was at portland meadows which is a race track (picture with
teepees in 1200 c is from that day).  the day was beautiful and hot.  there
were outdoor showers that people were standing in fully clothed to cool off
(myself included).  this beautiful women invited my friends and i to share
her blanket with her.  we fell in love and were in a long distance
relationship for 8 months :>) and :>(.

winona laduke spoke with a truth so strong it sunk into my heart so deep that
it still affects me today.  hte has been instrumental (definate pun intended)
in awaking an activist inside of me who is very determined to do what she can
in helping her mother!!!!  sarah was a vision with the voice of an angel.  my
feelings of ig's performance that day are so strong i dont know the words.
ig is still an inspiration and they touch my life every day with their music
and the way they live in their truth.  if anyone else was at that concert i
would love to share back and forth experience, so please e-mail me
personally.

great thread
peace

subject:      re: my plea

i'm still catching up on a lot of old mail, and i don't want to dredge up
any flame wars i might have missed, but, i've gotta step forward in nickie's
defense here.
as a 14 (almost 15, b-day this month! :) year old ig fan, i know exactly
what nickie is saying! it is extremely rare to find people my age who are
nearly as dedicated in their ig fandom as i am. at the same time, there are
tons of teenagers who know the chorus to ctf or lc b/c they heard it on the
radio or saw it on mtv, and i've gotta say, people like that drive me crazy
sometimes! i don't listen to the radio other than shows that are likely to
play ig type music, i don't watch mtv, and i couldn't care less about
whatever group is popular right now. it kills me to meet people who think
galileo or power of two is a cool song, but drop it as soon as something new
becomes "in."  i hate that when i tell people at school that ig are my
favorite group, the first response i usually get is "eeeu, aren't they,
like, lesbians!?"
and yes, i've met a ton of cool people my age who aren't at all like that. i
don't like to perpetuate stereotypes about my generation, but i'm living it,
and it looks hopeless sometimes.
i've always felt accepted on the list, but don't assume that i'm a good
representation of people my age by any means!
ok, i'm done now!

subject:      why we love the girls...

hi everyone!  i'm writing a paper on the indigo girls for a class i'm
taking called "gender activism and rock rebellion."  i'm trying to situate
ig in modern culture.  (what place do they have in relation to other
artists as part of a cultural movement, what ideologies they are working
under/helping to create/perpetuating, etc).
here's where your help would be really appreciated:  i know we've all
shared these thoughts a million times, but just so i can quote you on them
(and give you credit too! of course.): i'd like you to tell me exactly
what it is that ig do for you.  why do you listen to them?  what does
their music mean to you?  why does it touch you/change your life/cause you
to do things (what things?) you might not have done w/ out their
influence?
do they/their songs give you "permission" to feel/express certain feelings
(sexuality, religion, power, volume, weakness, strength, uncertainty)?
do you see them as fitting into a current cultural movement/ideology, etc?
any help on this would be very much appreciated.  email me privately
(be81830@binghamton.edu) or to
the list if you really like the thread?
thanks!

subject:      what ig has done for me

heidi, i hope this helps you some, but i think that this could be a good
thread!!! so here it goes!

i first started to listen to the girls before i had begun to really question
many parts of my life.  but i have always loved music, it speaks to me like
nothing else ever has!  anyway, ig really made me step back and look at my
life and the lack of happiness in it.  the more i listened, the more i found
that i could relate to so much that they were talking about.  i began to
explore myself and my feelings....which was quite frightening.  it was
almost if their music could make everything alright.  i was in my own little
world of saftey with only their lyrics to listen to.  gradually as time
passed i came to a realization about myself, and even began to feel
comfortable about everything.

there were so many times when i wanted to give up on everything and just
conform to what my family expected of me, but amy and emily just kept giving
me the courage to fight for my happiness.  eventually other artists came
into the picture and they have done much of the same thing for me, but a and
e have been there from the start. it was almost as if to say, hey if ig got
through life, so can i!

well, i can't exactly find the right words that i want to describe about
what ig has done for me.  it is as if they have given me that chance at a
peace of mind, another chance for "courage under fire."

right now i don't know where i would be without music, especially ig music.
probably in a fit of insanity!!!:)

well, i hope that this helped some with what you are looking for heidi.  i
know that music means a great deal to everyone on this list, so i hope that
we are of some assistance!!!

take care everyone and have a tangled up in blue kind of day:):)

subject:      what the indigo girls mean to me....

heidi - here are my thoughts, i hope they help......

i first started listening to the indigo girls in high school...(i am now
28 years old)... and for the first time in my life i had found a group
of musicians that really spoke to me.  not the person next to me, but
me.  i know many other people who have had the same experience with
their music.  each song i hear has a message for me that speaks to me in
a very personel way.   the song "loves recovery"  is one of my
favorites.  my sister and i had a rough time in grade shool...
regardless of that the song truly spoke to us after that experience.  we
we not liked and were outcasts in school.  this song made us feel like
we were no longer outcasts.  it bonded the two of us in a very special
way that is hard to describe.

later when "power of two" came out... i was comming out of the closet
and i truly felt that for the first time someone understood what i was
going through...looking for  a long term relationship with another man.

all in all i think it was the personel connection they borught to their
music the has made me such a fan of their music.

hope this helps!

predict to be released it is that one.  amazing that its basically the first
song they ever wrote together too.
does anyone know the guitar part?

   recently i think that their mesa show was the best on the demo tour.
maybe because i was there but i have all the other demo boots and mesa
is by far the best. as far as ig historic concerts i'd have to say it's
between their purple parrot show or the two shows they did when opening
for the grateful dead.some other favorites include dublin,ireland and erie,pa.
that's all,

        i have to very strongly disagree with you sam...bq is part of a
daemon project and completely separate from what the girls release through
epic.  so i doubt it will be on the album...cancel that...it won't be on the
album but we still have many, many great songs to look forward to.
        and also, this is actually the fourth song they've written
together...check out the faq for the other four...
        pick up the honor 1 cd to get your daily dose of this song...and
also support hte with along the way...

        peace,

subject:      dar williams and other performer info
x-to:         dar-list-approval@world.std.com

hello everyone!

i'm sending this email to both the ig list and the dar list because i have
what i think is some good info, some of which is relevant to dar people,
some to ig people who like other performers...i have so much to say but
don't want to ramble so i'll try to be succint (sp?)  where to begin...

ok, first of all, i saw dar last saturday and she was great as always.  but
i must say that the venue in which she played was great too.  she played at
the first universalist church in salem mass.  they said it held five hundred
people, but it didn't seem like it. it was a very intimate setting, a
beautiful church with a very tall and sweetly smelling balsam tree in the
corner behind dar.  it wasn't like your usual concert setting...it was like
going to your grandma's house, sitting around in the living room, and
singing songs (with dar williams - whoo hoo!).  and...here's the bonus...the
people who ran it (they call it "the universal coffeehouse" when an artist
is performing....) sold hot cider, coffee, tea, and homemade cookies, cakes,
and other treats in the next room!  it was like getting up from the living
room sofa, going into the kitchen, getting a snack, and then going back to
your place in the living room to hear the music.  ahhhhh!  doesn't that
sound nice?  have i adequately expressed the feeling one gets when you see a
show there?  i hope so... now, guess who will be playing this spring?

january 11      cheryl wheeler
january 25      patty larkin
february 8      martin sexton
february 22     christine lavin
march 1         john gorka
march 22        vance gilbert

what a line up!  now, for you dar fans with a frownie face 'cuz you missed
this great show saturday  :o(   --  have i got a surprize for you!  there
were video cameras in the room filming the entire show!  i talked to the
cameraman after the show, and he told me they were filming for salem
community television...they will be filming all the above mentioned
performers, and in a couple of months, the show (maybe a compilation) will
air .  i gave him my business card (never leave home without them!), and he
said he'll  email me to let me know when the show will be on.  now, here's
the problem...i don't live in salem, so i need to find someone who does who
will be willing to videotape this show when it airs, and then we can set up
a tree if people are  interested. (if you live in salem, mass, please email
me privately...i really want a copy  of this show when it airs....please oh
please...).

i think if i'd was reading this post, i'd probably want to stop right about
now (it is getting long...sorry)

to sum up...if you like any of these performers, make it a point if you can
to see them at the universal coffee house.  just don't tell your grandma you
liked their sugar cookies better than hers.....
joni :o)

very very good, dear. _or_ as we well know: "the early fan gets the front
row." ;) (or gets trampled on a few rows back.)

lessee what else we can come up with:
"good as gold." should definitely be: "good as indigo."

"all's fair in love and war." has _unfortunately_ become, "all's fair
when it's general admission."

"a bird in the hand is worth..." no, on second thought, i don't think i'm
going to touch that one.

someone else's turn.

actually, i have to say that i agree with whomever saw more to anne

neat that their names are so similar?  or is that just me?)  after
reading the books, i was convinced of it.  now, i certainly don't
think that they were lesbians as we think of today...it's unfair to
pin a modern social construction on them...but i think they were more
along the lines of a "boston friendship" or something.  i'm not
saying that they were lesbians, just that theirs' was an incredible,
special relationship, and it would be unfair to label them either as
"just best friends" or lesbians.

hey y'all!! how's everyone tonight? i'm about as bored as humanly
possible...anyhow, i was just listening to heart's album "little queen," and
was wondering how many heart fans there are on the list. i've really gotten
into their music lately for some reason. i prefer their older stuff like
"dreamboat annie," "magazine," and "little queen," but "bebe le strange"
holds a special place in my heart (probably because it's just really weird).
what do y'all think of heart?

btw, i think the ig could do a great cover of "soul of the sea" with em
taking ann wilson's lead vocal. had to put just a little igc in there ;)

hi ya'll,

i had to share this one with you guys.  when i first came to school i had
just started listening to ig so i played it nonstop.  well after awhile my
roomate started to get sick of them-she would make a face everytime-yet she
would allow me to play them.  well as the semester goes on i find her
singing along more and more abd she even said she wasn't sure what she was
going to do without them on break.  so yet another ig fan emerges.  just
thought i'd share.  thanks for listening.

p.s. thank to lauren d. for the greeting card - happy holidays to everyone.

i have seen them in concert four times. once i was even in the front row
and amy shook my hand. but...whenever i listen to the 1200 curfews track
of 'language or the kiss' i am swept away...what makes that crowd scream as
amy sings "oh mercy..." towards the end of the song? i melt, want to move
to atlanta and start a band whenever i hear that. was anyone at that
concert? can anyone tell me what she did?

peace ya'll,  kim (north vancouver)

i recently purchased my 2nd bfe album (i hate parties) and i've got a
question about a song on it that maybe someone can answer. a&e do backing
vocals on a great song called "animal" but there's another song that
intrigues me, mostly cuz it's called "amy no"
i know that amy is good friends with members of the band, and i'm wondering
if anyone thinks that that's a song for her or something. i haven't listened
to the song much yet, and once i look at the lyrics i'll probably realize
i'm wrong, but in the mean time, i'm looking for any insight you guys might
have to offer.

request magazine about r.e.m and their contract and the point is...i was
wondering how many albums the ig are contracted to produce with epic? also,
any idea when their contract expires? just curious...
wishing everyone a happy holiday (whichever one you may celebrate),

>>>i have seen them in concert four times. once i was even in the front row
and amy shook my hand. but...whenever i listen to the 1200 curfews track
of 'language or the kiss' i am swept away...what makes that crowd scream as
amy sings "oh mercy..." towards the end of the song? i melt, want to move
to atlanta and start a band whenever i hear that. was anyone at that
concert? can anyone tell me what she did?<<<

of course, i had to pop in my copy of 1200c after reading that. i click
shuffle, and what song winds up first but...you guessed it. i think the crowd
screams to applaud emily's a cappella section...you'll notice that the screaming
starts just as it ends.

        hi y'all,

        to answer abigail's question about "amy no" from the latest bfe
release...according to michael lorant, it's not about amy (the amy) although
he said it could be viewed that way at times...especially during the jcs
production days when all he seemed to be saying was "amy, no..."  (this info
is from memory off of a amy and friends at eddie's attic boot from may...so
forgive me if it's not word-for-word!! <g>)

i have to agree with that. i know that em's a cappella part blew me away
(but then again everything em does blows me away) and i'm sure that audience
felt the same way. she had so much feeling and emotion in her voice. that
just makes the song seem more real imho. and then the applause!!! wow! it's
good to know that other people like the same things you like, isn't it? am i
being redundant again? ;)

so of course i had to listent to my "amy & friends" boot...

before michael lorant sings "amy no," he jokes about it being about amy...

ml: i did not write this about amy, although i did say, "amy no" a lot
during jesus christ superstar.
ar: i won't say you did.  he played it when we were over at somebody's
house, and i was hoping it was for me.
ml: you were in my mind when i wrote it.
ar: thank you.
ml: no, i wrote it in atlanta.
ar: you did?
ml: yeah, it's about moving down to atlanta.  come on...

and they continue to joke around... :)

sorry if i got some of their words wrong...it's a little hard to make out
exactly what they're saying...

some xmas compilation cd and i heard the familiar jingle bells intro...and
there was joni singing away...believe it or not i hadn't heard joni's

i'm on the digest so apologies if someone already said this. a group of us
ran into russell carter in new orleans on the street and he promptly blew
us off (grin -- i don't blame him) but one of his friends stopped to chat
for a minute. he said the next album would probably be called "shame on
you" so i'm assuming that was the #1 choice back in may 96. however the
'demo tour' t-shirts have "map" on the front in big letters and there have
probably been other verbal confirmations from ig people (if not a&e
themselves) that it *will* be called map. at this point i'd be surprised
if it is named something else. it's a great title -- a lot of
possibilities for cool cover art and it has multiple layers of meaning.

i cast my vote for the first single being "shame on you" because it is
very radio friendly and it simply *rocks* :)

this morning and don't know all the dates, etc....

but, during dec., we have jane sibbery (doing an evening of x-mas inspired
music), dar williams, and christine lavin (with three others, but it's not
four bitching babes).

check time out ny or the voice for show times.

and, disappear fear was last friday.  grrrr.  sorry to have missed that one...

if ig, ani, shawn colvin, kristen hall, joni, melissa, tracy chapman, joan
armatrading, dissapear fear, dar williams, cheryl wheeler, christin lavin,
mary chapin, and cris williamson and tret fure, ect... were all in one room
with you and a few friends, what would you really want to talk about?  what
would you want the conversation to involve?

then after the conversation was over and everyone had to go home, but amy
and emily needed a place to stay, so you invite them over.  they give you a
personal concert:), then you sit down to coffee...what would you want to
talk about with just a+e?

can you tell that i spend way too much time doing anything but work?

take care everyone:)

subject:      trivia question results

hi everyone,

before i get to the real subject, i just wanted to say thank you to the
folks who thanked me for posting the ig creative loafing article. 'twas a
pleasure. :) one of the many things that struck me is the serendipity of
a&e's lives, that they took a native american studies class together in
college and then years later are doing the hte campaign, together. pretty
neat, not to mention inspiring.

now ... thanks to all who participated in the little trivia game! hope 24
hours was enough time for people to get their answers in ...

anyway, the only song in which the ig who did not write it sings the last
line solo is -- jonas and ezekial. (i had to check the album to make sure i
got the spelling right.) emily ends the song with the dineh/navajo
prayer/hymn, "now i walk in beauty ..." (btw, can anyone confirm that this
is a sacred prayer? i'm sure a&e would not sing it if they thought they were
denigrating anyone's faith.)

a couple of folks mentioned reunion as a possibility; i decided not to count
it because, technically, it is amy who ends the song with the word, "you."
(in case there is confusion, emily is the one who is singing "i had guards
like watchdogs, dogs in a manger" while amy sings "i remember you.") it's a
close second, though. :)

the early bird prize goes to deb r. :) here's a list of those who answered
correctly, in the order i received them: greta, dwayne, otts, wendell,
sharon (sparke61), elizabeth (wishmonstr), gwendigo, and shana (jak).
congratulations!

oh, and special mention for the cutest response goes to elizabeth
(wishmonstr), with the runner-up being greta.

thanks again!

with the whole crowd, it would be very difficult to come up with a
topic... maybe politics and music, but the last thing i'd want to talk
to any of these people about would be music.  its their job and if i
had the crowd over to my house informally, the last thing i'd want to
do is but them back into their work roles.

with amy, i'd try and convince her of the superiority of babylon 5 over
star trek (at least the modern incarnations).  this would probably bore
emily to tears. =)

with emily, i'd try to get advice on how to raise a good herb garden

"especially for high school students" next year...


hey stephen,

welcome to the list! i think there are a few other "teenagers" here, don't
worry. i do understand your point, though. appriceation of the indigo girls is
certainly big enough for enyone who wants to be there, i say. and i know the
girls share your opinion, because their last newsletter said they were going to
do a 1997 tour "especially for high school students". some people just don't
like to share... but i say those people are just old grumps. love is only love if
you give it away, same with music really....

take care

subject:      jonas and ezekial

the prayer at the end of jonas and ezekial is indeed (i am almost positive)
a sacred navajo prayer.

***the interesting thing about this prayer for me is that before i had even
started listening to the ig's, we would sing this at camp.  i never realized
it was even on any of the ig songs until last year,  when i got 1200 c.
after i heard it i called some camp friends and told them to listen
carefully to what was being said.---anyway, it was a neat connection for me:)

cheers for the last day of classes:)

subject:      girls=grrrls?

hi again!
thanks to all of you who've been sending me such great responses to my
what
the indigo girls mean to me....question!
i saw in a post a little while ago someone mentioned riot grrls.  i think
there's very little actual connection between ig and riot grrrls. but, i
was
wondering how y'all (especially you feminists) feel about ig's use of
girls as their name even though they're full grown women now.  if they
never marry (men) does that mean they'll never surpass "girl" status. does
"girl" seem to keep them marketed toward/accessable to a younger (perhaps
collegiate) audience?  would you say that them always being girls is in
any way related to how black men during/after slavery were called "boys"
instead of men; or do you think girls is empowering?

ltic!  (laughing till i cough)

but back to the original question....it is *such* a good one, i must
say...and this may not be my last post on it...

*i* would like to know about the songs that they've written that they
*don't* record, don't perform in concert, don't sing for anyone except
their close friends or maybe just themselves.  and if there are any
songs they've shared then regretted sharing.  if they feel empty inside
after pouring their hearts out onto a piece of paper and then singing
them into the wind of a packed auditorium.  if they ever just feel
lonely, like sometimes following the dream just isn't enough.  i know
language or the kiss is about this, but do the feelings keep reoccuring?
when you play in front of thousands of people watch them leave in pairs
then wake up alone, do you ever wish you weren't so famous, so you could
let your guard down and meet some of the crowd for yourself, looking for
your own new friends?  how *do* you make friends with someone who thinks
she knows you so well already, who you know nothing about?  have you ever
felt an actual connection with someone who came up to thank you after a
concert and you wanted to go out for a cup of coffee and a night of
conversation, but you couldn't because that would mean inviting a zillion
other fans which would ruin the whole thing?  what letters have moved
you, and how have you written back?  who's the first person to hear your
lyrics?

that's how i'd start.....but by the time it was only emily and amy and me
they'd be asking *me* questions, leading the conversation, and if you're
talking about stuff like this in a cozy living room (i'm picturing a cozy
living room even though i've only got a dorm living room right
now....maybe we'd be hanging out in the writer's house down the street)
you'll hug goodbye and want to talk again.  i think we do the _before
sunrise_ thing and decide to meet in some cafe after newport '97.  the
three of us do dinner--chapin arriving mid-way through--and then everyone
else joins us for coffee.  what happens this time, i'll save for the next
post, and hope you all are believing in my fantasies.

as a fellow european ig fan i have to agree with much of this, but i think
a distinction should be made between "exposure" which means doing
everything epic *aren't* doing at the moment - ie. promoting their
records, and actually releasing them (only three of ig's albums - ig, rop
and so - are available in the uk, except on import), and "overexposure"
which means giving them saturation play on the radio and making them mime
on "top of the pops" (yuk!).   as for the other acts mentioned, rem get
loads of airplay in this country at any rate, so does billy bragg when he
produces stuff (which he didn't from 1991 until this summer) and the
housemartins split up around 1989, although the spin-off, the beautiful
south, get loads of airplay.   i agree entirely about noel "i hope the
manic street preachers die of aids" gallagher and his idiot band, oasis,
and can't wait for them to split up and give our ears a rest;  as for
nkotb, take that (hey, and what about bros??) they are produced for a
*completely* different audience, who aren't looking for anything deep or
meaningful, just for something to dance to and to pretend to themselves
that they love a member of the band and that the member concerned loves
them.   i really can't see them promoting ig instead of any of this
rabble, it just wouldn't sell!

>

> have no comparisson with them...

it depends which shows you listen to.   i hardly ever listen to pop radio
shows, because the bulk of what's played there is, admittedly, rubbish.
but there are plenty of shows which play decent music, in england at any
rate (eg john peel, johnny walker, bob harris ...).

well i haven't been to a record collector fair, but i like delving in the
shelves of my local second-hand store ... you can get all sorts of
interesting records there (i've even seen neil young boot cd's, but they
don't seem to sell them anymore).   if you want those old gate-fold lp's
you can't get them anywhere else.

> in other ways:the more i hear them,the more i discover them)

well why not get in contact with radio stations and ask them if they know
about ig, and suggest that they get hold of their stuff - or send them a
tape yourself?   that's what (some) presenters in the uk do, if someone
turns them onto a good artist, they play their records, and if it
generates interest, then it might even mean the record companies listen.
give it a try ...

for my part, i think it's ludicrous that a company like epic hasn't
managed to promote the igs enough for them to be even known in the uk -
never mind having hit albums or singles.   if they were signed to a minor
label like windham hill or olivia (a folk label and a women's label,
respectively), then i could understand, but epic's promotion record in the
uk has been one fiasco after another.   plenty of songs the girls have
written could have been hits:  tried to be true, watershed, galileo, least
complicated.   someone needs to give those executives at epic a good kick
up the backside!   (mind you, i'd rather be a fan of a band nobody's ever
heard of than of a band which had a single hit a few years ago and have
come to be considered "has-beens".)

if you haven't read the first part yet, do that first.  here's the
continuation of the story.  tucker, hope you're there.


it's hard to keep up a regular friendship with someone who's not
geographically close, but it's also nice to be able to talk about the
greater themes of your life with someone instead of the day-to-day
crises.  there are times of the year when we tend to stop and reflect for
awhile and there are people we see who make us reflect.  a relationship
with a travelling artist is likely to be of the latter kind.  amy and
emily know this, and that's why we decide to just meet the next summer
rather than keep in touch.

over dinner the conversation begins with catching up.  "when we last
talked you were talking about going back to your novel, what happened
with that?"  "your new songs seem a lot more defined and accessible than
usual, amy---is that a consious effort?  did life just reveal itself to
you?"  and somewhere along the line emily makes a joke, starts talking
about this crazy thing that happened on the tour, and then we start
talking about big dogs or fresca or winnie the pooh.

by this time the conversation doesn't *need* to be deep.  deepness is good
for establishing a friendship, but it's also good to just be able to hang
out and get silly.  so when everyone else comes into the cafe (that
includes a bunch of you, who'd i'd just met at the show, wearing our
spiffy new shirts) i'll be putting on my jester hat to demonstrate my
juggling talent.  i juggle one duck named romeoandjuliet.  i throw him up
from my left hand, catch him in my right, and bow.  you all clap.

i'll let you imagine the rest of the evening....but we do begin a sort of
tradition.  i confess that i've never been farther west than disney world
so we agree to meet sometime at red rocks, but someone is working on an
art exhibit for school in the fall so we decide to take an extra day of
thanksgiving vacation to check it out and hang out in a dorm room because
the person (which of you is it?) is an ra, and we get yelled at for noise
and then busted for alcohol, but we all pull out our ids and the guy who
busted us just shakes his head as he walks away, and we promise to be
quiet but we just start laughing and rolling on the floor as soon as the
door closes, frosh again.

this in is just screaming at me...  i don't count myself as a feminist, but
i have to say i think it's fine...  i mean, they chose the name right?  the
word girl isn't derogatory, and nobody seemed to be offended about the title
"boys on the side," (i gotta see that...)   i think that this particular
(non)-issue is one of overreading and, well, has anyone read the story
harrison bergeron?  what vonnegut says about equality, utlimately, is sort
of similar to what i'm saying...  id est, equality is fine, but too much
b.s. tacked on is just stupid.  i would have been happy to have called the
band amy and emily, but they went for ig, so i'm happy with that...

just $ zero point zero two,

subject:      ig party games

ok folks, i'll kill two birdies with one stone here - start a new thread
(my first, goodie!) *and* solicit ideas for the pnw party this week:

"what ig party games can y'all invent?"

to start with, all i've been able to come up with is "pin the kiss on amy
or emily" (your choice).  if you're a straight woman or gay man, you can
pin the kiss on the cheek; all alternatives, plus any adventurous
straight girls/gay boys, get to pin the kiss on the lips.  object is the
same as "pin the tail on the donkey", of course.

my gf sue also thought of "bindigo" - ig bingo! but we're trying to
invent some witty details to the game to make it uniquely indigo.

ok, y'all, have at it!  these can be specifically holiday party games, or
just regular any-old-time party games.

subject:      favorite show

my favorite (spelled *favourite* for fellow canadians) show has to be
toronto, may 1 1990.  i had just seen ig open for rem in 89 and had
memorized the first album.  the concert was at convocation hall, which is a
fairly intimate venue, which was really nice.  despite the fact that the
overall concert was excellent, i just received the boot and i have another
reason to make it my fav.  during kf, not many people knew to sing michael
stipe's part, but a few of us in the audience did, and i'm sure i can hear
myself singing!  (i know that sounds pretty unlikely, but i'm sure my ears
have selective hearing that no one else's ears have! =d)

was anyone else at this show?  if anyone wants to trade for the boot, email
me.  thanks to carolyn i should have a few other toronto shows soon too.

anyway, i just had to share the joy of this with you listees.  does anyone
else "appear" on a bootleg out there? (screeching at bumbershoot doesn't count!)

i think the same goes for "upper echelons of mediocrity." actually, i
can't think of any other group to whom that phrase would occur :)

i agree with jen as to blood quantum but my question is this: will wild
horses be on the album. they certainly played it enough on the demo tour
and they've done covers before (i.e. romeo and juliet). what do you guys
think?

hey kind friends...
i hope that they leave blood quantum off "map" for one reason:  a lot of
people wouldn't buy honor 1 if the song were available on a regular album,
and it needs the sales!! i hope i'm not stepping on any toes here, but the
reason that most of us bought honor 1 was becasue of the indigos
affiliation with it.  there's great music on it and i'm glad i bought it,
but i probably would never have even considered buying it if it weren't for
the daemon?hte thing.  by putting the song on a proper ig album, i have a
feeling that sales of honor 1 would lag as a result.

just a thought...

okay, so which song is this from?

other candidates:
--"the edge of death would disappear, leave me nothing left to taint"
--"every step you take becomes a twist of fate"
--"tripping in our yellow feet, checking underneath our sheets"
--"the larger than life and the power of seeming certain"
--"who delivered to you the power to interpret calvary?"
--"it's hard not to rock the boat when you're sailing against the undertow"
--"the curse and the blessing are one and the same, baby it's all such a
treacherous gain"
--"i'm working through the grammar of my fears"
--"lives led in discontent, trading misfortunes"
--"the question drowns in its futility"
--"this is what i know of shame forever"
--"now i see your face before me, it would launch a thousand ships to bring
your heart back to my island as the sand beneath me slips"
--"sentiment given and sentiment lost, you shook it off with a smirk and a
toss"
--"one less life for the maker, one more song for the taker"
--"i've seen kingdoms blow like ashes in the winds of change but the power
of truth is fuel for the flame"

and of course, let's not forget the infamous...
--"feeding the cancer of my intellect, the blood of love soon neglected lay
dying in the strength of its impurity"

of course, some would argue that that one doesn't fit too well in an *ig*
song either. ;-)

what about doing a sing down....everyone is split into even groups, and two
or three people come up with random words that appear in ig songs.  you
start out fairly general with words such as love.  each group has to sing a
part of an ig song with that word in it.  if they miss....chug a lug
dearies!!!  anyway, you go until people can't stand anymore, or noone can
think of a song:)  each word constitutes as a round, and the same song can't
be sung twice in the same round.

no, i didn't just think of this game, it has been played before, and is
quite fun:)

hey, it was just an idea:):)

hello kings and queens of your teenage dreams!

okay, so we seem to all agree that its pretty likely that the new album will be
called "map". um, okay. map. yeah. its...a nice title. but....its a little
blah, ya know? so i thought, if the universe were perfect and emily and amy
read this listserv (on second thought...), and if they asked us what we thought
the title for the new album could be, we should all come up with some ideas.


how about....

"as folkee as they wanna be" (cover art: emily and amy in full hiphop attire,
arms crossed over their chests, back to back....a la flavor flav and public
enemy circa 1990)

"hey kind friend! buy this album wouldja?"
(cover art: amy and em in front of wal mart, pointing at the big sign that says
"all cd's 9.99")

"shame on you, ya dang republicans!" (cover art: amy and em perched atop a real
live elephant giving the bird to newt gingrich on the ground)

okay, its your turn, wanna play?

well hell y'all, what would you expect from....

hey y'all...

        okay, so an update on the progress of soc dubbing says that all of the blanks which i have received thus far will have been sent out with or before tomorrow's mail.  my tape decks are issuing mass amounts of smoke (as is my brain), but other than that my afore mentioned both end candle burnings are officially over, so to anyone that was afraid to make a request due to my snappishness, i apologize and re-open the offer.
        also, to all the pnwers (and otherwise) that are planning to attend the party on the 14th...i'll miss you!!  i'm going to have to request a leave of absence for this particular get together because of prior holiday/family/there-is-no-way-in-hell-that-you're-getting-out-of-this-one obligations.  sundarling assures me that there will be another in the relatively near future (you do realize that this means you can't leave, right hon).  in the meantime, y'all will just have to sing "chiapas bound" in my honor & know that i'm with you in spirit.

|| hey, i *like* it... it's the egalitarian ig party game - everybody gets

|| a disadvantage i guess....

first you'd have to compute your body weight and tolerance level to
determine the size sips each person would be allowed to take.  that way
it would be completely egalitarian (how i love that word!).  the person
who wound up doing all the computations would get to choose the type of
alcohol consumed.

subject:      christmas for e&a

hey there y'all! in lieu of all the christmas shopping going on at the
moment, i've got a question fer ya. if you could buy emily and amy anything
you wanted for christmas, what would you buy? now i realize that you'd
probably have to know more about them personally to pick the perfect gift,
but from what you *do* know about them, what would you get them? i have no
idea what i'd buy, but i thought it might be interesting to hear everyone's
thoughts. everybody here is so creative. i'm sure some of y'all will come up
with some pretty good ideas. money isn't an option. pretend that you can buy
them anything.

now we'll all know how amy feels when she listens to emily perform "river."

subject:      trivia results...
x-to:         grasso@sas.upenn.edu

the question was: what does a call her grandmother?

the answer is from an interview on wumb in boston from 8/2/89...

<<interviewer: amy, you have a funny story too.  i was reading some article
about your grandmother writing to hee-haw.

a: yeah, she did.  her name's...well, i call her mammy...she's my
grandmother.  yeah, well, she got me a job at a cocktail party when i was,
like, 16 cause she was the secretary at this, like a phone-answerer, at
this hairdressing salon place, and the guy that ran it had a cocktail
party, you know, schmaltzy. (they laugh.) and uh, so uh, no anyway, she was
really into the music, so she wrote a letter to hee-haw and said i should
be on the show cause i was great and all that stuff.  cause she thought
what i was doing was country.  i guess it kinda was at that time...more
country than anything else.  but they never wrote her back or anything,
so...

interviewer: so, she dropped it there?

a: she dropped, uh, she might have written two, but she kept telling me
that they hadn't responded, so.  but she comes to hear us all the time and
stuff.

interviewer: that's great.

a: she's into it, yeah.>>

so there it is...a calls her grandmother mammy!

the real winners are pj <pjhoopie@aol.com> and veronica <vjt8118@is4.nyu.edu>.

my favorite comments were from veronica who said, "sounds like an awesome
mammy to me," tucker <tbranham@richmond.edu>, who said, "oma?   german for
grandma!:),"  audrey <abstein@force.stwing.upenn.edu>, who said, "bubbe,
and grandpa is zayde," and rebekah <rss163@psu.edu> who first said, "old
bag?" and then changed it to "bubba," if i remember correctly.  special
awards go to xorinne, warrior princess, who doesn't seem to get my posts
about her, but will hopefully get this one, my bf, who is completely
ignoring me, & binky, b/c she cracks me up! oh, and dana, my roommate gets
a special thank you for putting up w/ me while i transcribe these little
interviews...she started reciting this one, i listened to it so many times!
i feel like i'm accepting an award here or something w/ all these thank
yous... :)

(snip)

i am going out on a limb here, while we're talking about the "nature's
dichotomy" thing...
is there anyone else out there that just hates that line?  i mean, don't
crucify me or anything, but it is the only ig lyric i have ever heard that
i just hate.  it is soooo contrived.  not to dis emily or anything...i
mean, whatta songwriter, y'all know i'm a true fan, i'm not defecting or
anything, but it grates on my nerves everytime i hear it.

i agree with you, jen, that no other group would ever think to put those
two words into a song (not even sting, also known for his nickel words)
and i love ig for their expansive vocabulary. don't get me wrong! but i
was just wondering if anyone else feels this way about these two words in
leeds?

well i've heard that noel and the boys are going into the studio soon to
record yet another album of garbage.   but all is not lost:  gallagher is
quoted recently as saying:  "i see it as three albums, and that's it".

well personally i prefer nirvana to any of the bullshit which is likely to
come up in this new "happy" music, although trent (reznor, i presume?) is
a completely different matter.   i don't care that much, i hardly ever
listen to chart music these days anyway, and if a band i like hits the
chance, i don't need the radio to play it to me, i can go out and buy it
myself.

hey y'all.....

if i were in the room with all those incredible women, first of all i would have to pray to be able to speak, i would be so overcome....  but i would have several questions for them--

i would want to know about their writing order--do they do lyrics or music first--or is it a combination?  do they have an idea of the lyric when they start, or do the lyrics simply come out of the music?

then, i'd want to talk about literature....see what authors really do it for them.  then, if they hadn't read alice walker's poetry, i'd make 'em...kind of a hostage-at-gun-point poetry reading....

later, when people started to read, i'd talk mary-chaping into hanging out with amy, emily and me, and we'd have cocoa, sit by the fire, and talk about growing up....after all, mary-chapin wrote most of her songs about me....

ok here goes.
all their songs are hymns.
ig t-shirts are the holy vestments (is that the word?)... or maybe
they're like nun/monk suits (which we lowly followers wear), while plaid
flannel t-shirt w/jeans and/or overalls are the holy vestments worn only
by the high priestesses.
rice cakes are bread (communion wafer), & herb tea is the wine.
we're all disciples... or rather we're just followers & russ rutter, sara
lee, etc, are the disciples.
singing closer to fine at the end of a concert is the closing ritual to
bring the energy back down (we can mix religions, right?)
the golden rule is the same.

i've thought about this briefly before, and only half-joking.  *we* are the
first-generation founders and followers.  we worship in a kind of
down-to-earth sort of safe way, we agree with much of the gospel (lyrics)
but don't accept it all blindly.  we create our own rituals, (like this
listserv), and accepted practices (like blanks and postage only;  limits
on discussion of a&e's personal lives--all listed in the faq which is
another piece of gospel).  we loosely define the what is important in the
history (shows/tapes like the painted parrot and blue food; involvement
with honor the earth) and we worry about the future (increasing
popularity; younger folk listening who might be misinterpreting).  it's
this last part where it gets sticky.....defining for ourselves is fine,
but if a new generation comes along and blindly accepts everything we've
set out, then it becomes more of an organized religion and begins to fall
apart.  but imagine how cool judaism might have been at the beginning, or
what it might have been like sitting around the table at the last supper
or writing parts of the new testament.  and think about the grateful
dead, and what happened when jerry garcia died.  there are tons of
similarities......the distinguishing factors seem to be whether a human
is declared a god and whether the entire culture may be questioned and
changed.  the path as i understand it goes from culture to cult to
organized religion.  i like culture myself....and this is a good one.
thanks, y'all.

well given that they're rich enough to get themselves any consumer goods

appreciate this, i would probably donate whatever my budget for their
gifts was to charity. i'd give amy's half to a battered women's shelter

this may be a little late for some of you to get before break, i forget

contact your branch to set up the details.

the set up is standard.  you can set up a trade with a branch or send a
blank tape and a self addressed stamped envelope to get your copy of the
tape.  high grade tapes are preferred due to the fact that the quality will
deteriorate with each generation.

yay marianne and sundara! good thread (it's cute)!
that would also make:
        their songs into hymnals, their causes would be required if you
want to get into heaven (and what a great heaven it would be =), their
friends and associates would be the priests and priestesses, and all our
list shirts and concert shirts would be religious attire, suitable for
church wear. <grin>

howabout: the buying of an album is like tithing....concert tickets are
second (or sometimes even third) collections (familiar to many churches :p

ah, but is throat coat not a type of herb tea too?.  this must be the
stage where we diverge into different sects according to interpretation
of the holy writ.  throatcoatarians, chamomilites, morning thunderites
(the holy rollers of this new religion)....  and then of course there
will be different sects based on varying interpretations of ig lyrics.
but since i'm supposed to be working i'll leave that to the rest of
y'all.

if being an ig fan became a religion and in order to be a part of this
religion, then amy and emily will "live in my soul and drinks of my
wine...(herb tea?)"

then we all have to stand without clothes, and dance in the sand...until we

so, a couple of us were emailing,  and talking about how great susan is.

fan club.  anyway.  i decided that i'm gonna be president  (cause i'm a
power monger)  and jan and corinne are the other two founding members.
everyone can join.  all you have to do is email susan on a somewhat regular
basis and tell her you love her and how wonderful she is.  okay.  her email
is

oh.susanna@dartmouth.edu

so if you wanna join, write her.

subject:      from the north brrr~~~

to my indigo friends,


        well the sun went down at 4 pm, and darkness is swallowing up my
day.  as i lite the candle's next to my computer, i think about words,
and how to express the deep thoughts that travel through my mind.  around
this time of the year in alaska, people begin to slip into some sort of
zombie state of mind.  lite deprevation is what they call it, and this
time of the year here brings depression as well as some happiness.
january is even darker, and february is it's coldest and darkest, and
this is the time of the year, is when i can write lyrics best and deep
thoughts begin to come out from their hibernation, and fill my mind up
with thought.
        like little creature strong and muscular, they dig and tear up my
past experiences and throw them in my face.  with there questions and
interigation of me. i am faced to ponder on what it is that i think about
what life gives me and us.  i love my world, and what it has to offer.
but what is it about darkness, what is it that makes our minds slip into
a zombie like frame of mind?  why does everthing become deep?  maybe this
is a time for our minds to reflect on our surroundings, a survival mode
if you will.  then when the summer sun comes, we are free and reborn, to
take in our new experiences, to then ponder once again in the fallowing
winter months.  i love the lyric's that amy and emily i am not sure who
wrote it, but the say   " summer is beginning to give up her fight"  that
would be death, and then "old man winter looses his fight" and re birth
happens.

        i am just blabber key's and reflecting, and not sure if any of
you can relate to what i am saying if so... i would love to hear your
point of view.

bye for now,
scott (in alaska)

hi everyone,

well i guess sleep is overated when your the mommy of a very lively kitten.
thank you everyone for all of you responses these are the choices you all
gave me.

jonas,  ezekial (zeke),  iggy, ray, ghost, danny(after e's boyfriend in the
6th grade), chickenman, chickencat, sejarez, galileo, spirit (last words
uttered by jesus in jcs), decatur, amily, emmy, russell, daemon (greek
mythology - guardian spirit according to websters),rasputin, shalot.

i am torn right now between daemon and tucker.  i know tucker is not ig
related but i really like that name and tucker the human gave me permission
to use it.  i sometimes have been calling him kittenman (understand?).  then
for his benefit i sing to him and ask him to hold my hand.  he proceeds to
gnaw on my finger.

i am sure i will know in a couple of days if he is daemon or tucker.  so
enough of taking list space.  thanks again everyone.

peace and carrots
pj

this is a place that we can come if they are chasing us with cameras or

ph: 715-478-2624 or 715-478-3687
fax: 715-478-2527

i am writing to ask you, the members of the nashville town board, not to
pass the proposed local agreement with the crandon mining company
because i believe this agreement is bad for our lands, drinking water,
wildlife, economy and quality of life. : the local agreement attempts to
exempt the mining company from "all town zoning ordinances, regulations
and laws" through wording like, " the agreement shall constitute
compliance with all procedural requirements of nashville ordinances and
those procedural requirements shall not otherwise be applicable." i
think crandon mining company should have to comply with all town zoning
ordinances, regulations and laws.

the local agreement does not guarantee jobs for any local residents,
only "preference" and "to the extent permitted by law" for applicants
who have been in the area for "one year". crandon mining company has
consistently promised the mine would provide 400 to 700 good-paying jobs
for our community. if the mine would ever be permitted, crandon mining
company should be obligated to hire a specific percent-- at least 50
percent -- of its employees from the townships and county where the mine
is located for the entire life of the mine.

the town is strictly limited in reopening the agreement. for example,
unless residents "suffer additional unmitigated negative impact" and the
operation is "substantially different from the mining plan". 5 the
mining company can also prevent the town from reopening agreement if
problem is "mitigated".

in section 6.j. of the agreement, the mining company attempts to limit
the powers of the local government and our courts by stating, "the court
may not directly or indirectly prohibit mining pursuant to the terms of
the mining permit." the town would be limited in it's legal remedies to,
"exclusive remedy shall be an order amending those terms of unmitigated
negative impact" to town residents, "but only to the extent necessary to
mitigate that impact."

the town will be obligated to certify, to the state, that the mining
company's operations conform with all applicable zoning ordinances. is
the local agreement enacting a requirement that citizens of the town of
nashville will potentially be legally required to lie to satisfy the
local agreement? no citizen of the town of nashville should be required
to lie if necessary to be able to certify that crandon mining company's
operations conform with all applicable zoning ordinances.

all roads, pipelines, transportation facilities and other mitigation
facilities are exempt from setback requirements in section 13 of the
agreement. no mining company should be exempt from the same setback
requirements that other businesses and citizens must comply with.

the agreement gives final local approval for the disposal of all wastes
associated with the mining project to the mining company.

if a resident claims damage to their drinking water, the mining company
will only provide alternative water to well owners who participated in
cmc's private water well survey and not to any new residents or older
residents that didn't participate with the company. this stipulation
would discourage all new purchases of property which would destroy the
recreational property business. if cmc contaminated the town's water
supply including private wells, any town residents who did not
participate in cmc's study would have to pay to have water brought in.

if wdnr determines that the mine was not the cause of damage, the town
residents and/or the property owner, must pay the bill with 10% interest
due to the mining company. after following the actions of a dnr which
has become totally politicized and according to "a question of bias,"
has repeatedly demonstrated its bias toward mining, i simply do not
believe i can trust the dnr to make any ruling that is not in favor of
the mining company.

in section 19. "contingency planning" which deals with catastrophic
chemical accidents spills and other disasters, the company offers this:
they have a plan and they will maintain some equipment and personnel
that occur on site. would this contingeny plan be like the exxon's
response to legislation regarding oil tanker hulls or its abysmal
response to the exxon valdez disaster? i do not believe the citizens of
the town of nashville should be required to live under the threat of a
disaster like the exxon valdez, the burlington northern spill in duluth
or the weyauwega propane spill for years or have to trust that crandon
mining company will maintain adequate emergency response teams for a
hazardous waste disaster.

environmental sampling can only be done at the expense of taxpayers, and
at locations, laboratory and times pre-appoved by the company, and only
once in three months. if the mine were to be permitted, any citizen of
the impacted communities, including nashville should be able to do
environmental sampling at any time, using the laboratories they
choose--especially if it is going to be paid for by those taxpayers.

section 8, master hearing, would in effect gag the local citizens and
the town board from opposing or revoking the local agreement once it was
passed. i believe this could be a violation of u.s. citizens right to
free speech and due process. the tentative local agreement, as presented
in the november 13 edition of the forest republican provides very little
in the way of benefits for the citizens of the town of nashville while
making them assume the majority of the risks for the mining project.

please protect our town's economy and environment for us and for our
children.
please do not pass the cmc/nashville local agreement!


thank you

okay, we'd be celebrating amymas and emilymas--but can we handle _two_ of
these holidays each year?

in our little nativity scenes we would have to put "dogs in a manger."
     ---if amy or emily happened to have a child they would definitely
         have to be immaculate conceptions  (pretending artificial
         insemination hasn't been invented yet).

instead of xmas cookies we would be giving grapenuts to our friends that
we visit.

and, oh my gosh....some people might even interpret heterosexuality to be
a sin in this religion!

wait, i have one more... instead of the "may crowning" we just change the
letters around and have "amy crowning."

reading that quote makes me have second thoughts about the meaning behind
it. listening to love's recovery, i'd always assumed that "cancer of my
intelect..." referred to cancer, as in the disease, but maybe it's a
reference and analogy to cancer, emily's zodiac sign. ("i was born under the
sign of cancer, like brushing cloth...") hmmmm...

subject:      dos cosas

hey-

i have two things (approx) to share with the world! (aren't you excited?  i
am! =) )  first off, the question.  i'm sort of tired, so maybe i'm over
looking the obvious, but are there any songs with just emily on vocals (on
the album release)?  'cause -- with the exception of the girl with the weight
of the world in her hands -- i can't think of any.  it seems, though, that
amy has at least one solo moment in the sun on all the albums.

second, if i were locked in a room with all those amazing artists (can't
remember all of them now) i would want to discuss politics, sex, religion,
books, poetry, drinking, drugs . . . anything but music.  then, when they've
all gone home and it's only me and a&e . . . then we'd talk about music.
we'd all take out our guitars and jam, and then we'd all get into a
conversation about life in general . . . and emily and i, we'd really hit it
off and become great friends and keep in touch for the rest of our lives.
(listening to her music, i often get the feeling that if i knew her she
would be the kind of person you'd meet with over coffee, occasionally, to
discuss your troubles, and she'd listen and contemplate and then offer the
best advice . . . tangent . . . )  amy and i would end up in an argument over
something, and since while everyone else was there we'd all have been playing
one of those ig party games, we'd both be totally sloshed and it wouldn't be
pretty . . .  i don't know why, but that would be it.  amy and i would meet
up a few years later and be friends again then, though.

all right, i lied!  three things.  on the ig religion thread (ooo, so
interesting!) . . . i want to say something constructive about it, but i'm
having trouble 'cause i need more caffine . . . until i think of something to
contribute, though . . . ahha!  okay, thought of something!  +)  that
lifeblood web sight, that would be like the old testimate, because it's the
story of "the beginning" and contains a history.  then, the faq and the song
books would make up the new testimate (am i spelling that wrong?) part.  what
would be the apochraful (sp?) text?  i like this whole thing 'cause amy's a
sexier mesiah than jesus . . . not to offend anyone, of course . . .

all right, off to english homework, and then bed!

does anyone else get that warm fuzzy feeling from the stories in chicken
soup for the soul?

just a quick little story for you all:
when i was home, i went to visit my grandmother everyday in the hospital.
she has parkinsons disease, and had fallen and broken her hip.  anyway, i
read her some of the stories, and she loved them.  she doesn't remember much
now, but she loves to hear the stories over and over.  when i had to leave
after thanksgiving, i told her that i would see her on the 19th.  she got
tears in her eyes, and looked at me saying, "do you know i love you?"  i
said that i did, then she said that when i came back could i bring back
chicken soup for the soul and read for her again!!!!

needless to say that i was crying by the time i left...

ok, i am leaving for the night!

peace and love to everyone young and old...there is only one thing that i
ask of all of you.  when talking to people young or old remember that
everyone is a person and can feel and love just the same!!

take care all:
tucker

in-reply-to:  <961211010300_708372676@emout09.mail.aol.com>

hi indigo folks, does anybody uses word 7.0 on win95? i read in an
instruction book that after typing up your article if you click on
a certain item (which one i forgot; i'm using the chinese version) under
"tool", the computer would analyse your article and tell you the level of
its readability. for example, how many passive tenses you're using, how
many difficult words you're using,
and most interesting of all, the level of its difficulty, eg.: 8th grade
level, 12th grade level...etc.

now i don't remember exactly remember which function performs this task
nor do i have the time to type up each and every ig songs to find out how
old you'd be able to understand ig:) but i thought it'd be fun if those
of you who use word 7.0 could type up the lyrics and see what the
computer says.

nigc  follows:

i went to alanis morissette's concert in taipei two weeks ago. i was at
the fourth row and could see her very clearly. throughout her concert a
man (i assume he's the manager) would go out on stage and hand her a
guitar so she could play. however although her fingers were moving up and
down the bars strumming the strings, it just seemed to  me the sound
didn't really match the timing of her fingers. but since i am not a
guitar expert i can't be sure. however my boyfriend daniel plays bass in a
band (heard of ponyboy curtis from germany?) and he later told me that he
enjoyed the concert (he'd never heard of alanis before) but didn't like
it when alanis pretended to play the guitar. he said her fingers were
wrong, and that the guitar wasn't connect to the amplifier.

so does she play the guitar or not?? if she doesn't i'd be pretty
disappointed; cause that's not the alanis i thought i knew.

since this is unrelated to ig those of you insightful listers might
wanna reply to me private me so not to upset the list.

stay kewl,
han

i just wanted to let any other college students out there to "hang in

about bad experiences? calvin from the comic strip...)  i was actually
praying that i would get into an awful accident today just because i don't
know how i am ever going to finish...

hello fellow-listees

to all list members out there who've mailed me re. the 'on the road to
austin' video. apologies for the delay in getting things rolling...
today i've sent off the tape for conversion to pal, so i expect it back
within a week or two. so, i hope to start sending you out copies by the
end of this month. what i am saying is, if you want to send me your blank
tapes, please do so now! i need a 2 hour tape, quality is mixed (no
reflection on sunny) and content is a mixture of tv stuff and live
'audience' material.

i'm glad to be able to share this stuff with you, and i think we should
all give a huge vote of thanks to sunny for her kindness in making this
offer possible!!

hey y'all...
see... it's like this... my little itty bitty isolated-type town just got a
(woo--hooooo <not>) macdonalds a few months back. okay, so, along with this
wondrous event came our very first highway-side billboard; a huge + tres
tacky yellow + red sign that says *welcome* with a macdonald's kinda "m" in
it... now every time i drive into town past that sign, i get the song
"welcome me" stuck in my head + start singing it. this of course prompts my
wise-acre son to reach over + turn on the tape deck. sooo.... i made a tape
completely of "welcome me" and stuck it in the player, just waiting + ready
fer his quick reflex action.... you shoulda seen his face yesterday:-)
lol!!! ah yes, it was a sweet joke:-)
peace all... kim, who has decided that if my son *has* to listen to weird al
all the time, he's getting head phones... :-) ( ah... it could be worse...

subject:      igc: mtv video (not ig, but..)

hey fellow amy and emilyites...

i was watching mtv late last night, as i am apt to do, and a video cam on
for the group republica.  it was for their song "drop dead gorgeous" taken
from the soundtrack of the new movie "scream."  anyway they showed clips
from the movie, and in one of the clips, they were in a girl's bedroom and
she had an indigo girls poster on her wall...  it went by too fast so i
couldn't see what it was, i just saw it said indigo girls at the top, and
it looked swamp ophelia-ish.  so if anyone sees "scream"  check for igc in
the movie, and give us the full report.

love
sister corinne
saying her hail emilys for penance today...  ;)

subject:      gift ideas for ig fans (humor)

don't know if this has been re-posted, but i got a really good laugh when
i first saw it a couple of years ago, thought i'd share it with some of
the newer subscribers.

subject: the one gift which i'd adore

need some last-minute gift ideas?  having trouble shopping
for that special indigo girls fan on your list?  well, fret
no more, because for a very limited time you can order any
of the following delightful items, each designed with the
insatiable ig fan in mind.  please read on for descriptions:

for the child in everyone, we offer adorable amy and emily
action figures!  amy is ready to jam in her ripped jeans
with embroidered jacket (jangling beads and silver ring
sold separately), while emily sports her trademark overalls
and a white t-shirt.  each comes with six guitars tuned in
weird keys.  amy's strings pre-broken at factory.
(sorry, sara lee not available.)

hate getting up in the morning?  well you'll rise and shine
cheerfully with our new "first to praise the sun" _talking_
alarm clock!  forget those shrill buzzing alarms.  let amy
wake you up *gently* with her calm assertion:  "um, you're
actually supposed to get up now.  but do whatever you feel
comfortable with."

surprise your friends with a package of our homemade fat-free
bran muffins.  they're so delicious!  and they might be similar
to muffins amy or emily might have eaten once!

have you ever felt self-conscious at an ig show because you
don't have "that hair"?  well you can say goodbye to your
insecurity with our exclusive miracle wigs.  that's right.
just slip one on before the next show, and watch as you're
instantly transformed!  you're sure to fit right in!  then
discreetly remove the wig afterwards, and no one but your
date will be the wiser.  you really can have "that hair"!
in medium brown.  unisex.

been too happy lately?  need a good cry?  well, now there's
"the very essence of pain", a new compilation of the igs'
most depressing songs.  let amy and emily get you down with
old heartbreakers like "hey jesus" and "blood and fire", as
well as newer ones like "fare thee well" and "ghost".  best
of all, the songs are carefully sequenced to *maximize* your
feelings of emptiness and despair.  you won't find a glimmer
of hope here--no "watershed" or "galileo" to diffuse your
pain--just your favorite downers, back to back.  order several
copies,  and share the agony with your friends!  coffee and
cigarettes not included.

well, those are the goods.  unfortunately, however, the time
during which they were available for purchase was so very limited
that it actually expired just now.  we regret the inconvenience.

i-girl, who brings you glad tidings of great joy....because
"great tidings of glad joy" just didn't make any sense..

subject:      news-only list?

is there a news-only version of this list?  i'm very interested in
learning any new indigo girls stuff (including about boots and such), but
the high traffic on this list is killing my mailbox.  although i
appreciate the closeness that listers feel to one another, it's a bit much
reading message after message about ellen, or the susan fan club, or ig
religion . . .

and if there's not a news-only version, what are the chances of setting
one up?

thanks. :)

subject:      newbies

someone posted asking if there was a ig newsgroup.  i'm sorry i don't
have the message to repost or even the posters name...(i don't have a
problem thinking before i speak, but i do have a problem thinking before
i delete!) ;)  anyway, this post is for that person and anyone else who
might be new to the list.  the person who posted looking for a newsgroup
seemed to have decided this list wasn't for them because of stuff like
the "ig as a religion" thread and the "susan fan club", etc...well let
me just say that i only joined the list a couple of months ago, and i,
too, was unsure about staying subscribed at first.  at the time, there
was a thread about whether amy and emily looked better with short hair,
long hair, or whatever, and people were voting and stuff.  i'll admit
that i thought it was a little silly, and i questioned whether or not
this list was the place for me.  also, there was a thread going titled
"you know you're an obsessed ig fan when...", and i was even a little
worried about that one at first.  plus, there seemed to be a lot of
inside jokes going on, and i didn't know if i'd ever get into the swing
of things.  now i can see how someone joining the list just recently
might be a little put off by the religion thread - even though it was
clearly stated that it was meant to be a joke, and if you are a new list
member who finds yourself in the position i was in when i joined, my
advice is...stick around - give yourself at least a few weeks to get a
feel for the list.  i have found the people on the list to be exremely
kind, generous, and more than willing to help out the newbies.  if some
of the threads seem a little weird, try to remember that these are
well-meaning, respectful fans just having a little fun.  give it a
little time, and you might find yourself joining in (i did).  i think
you will find plenty of useful information and "serious" discussion here
along with the trivia questions and humor.  long live the list!
(no, really, i'm usually quite shy) ;)

tera (and others interested),

  there is no news-only version of this list currently set-up.  its
been tried in the recent past, but it simply dies from lack of
traffic.  if things got reported on ig and not on ig-news, which is
what happened, what was the point in having the ig-news server?  so it
died.

  one interesting thing though, there may now exist an new indigo
broadcasting system where you can tune for offical news and
information (somehow i want to put an ear splitting beep right here,
but i digress).  if you look at the official ig www pages from sony
(http://www.music.sony.com/music/artistinfo/indigogirls.html) and
follow the links to "email signup" you have the opportnity to get on
the russell carter listserv.  i have no idea about how this is run,
who posts, how often news comes out, what news comes out, etc.  but it
does exist and it sounds like what you are looking for.

  also there is a usenet group (alt.music.indigo-girls) and the web
site above you can monitor for the information you like.  the signal
to noise on the usenet group can be high at times.

  if you like the craziness of this list, but need to minimize the
impact on your mailbox, you might want to sign up for the digest
version.  instructions on how to do that can be found in the faq.

                        good luck,

                           chris

well, i was reading joni's message and i thought hey, she is right, so i
thought that i might try and come up with a new thread...

personally i love disney movies!!!:)  i don't know about yall,but i have a
decent collection of disney stuff....esp. lion king =)

anyway, a while ago we were discussing what musical amy and emily could
do...what about a disney film?  i mean so much of disney is musical, as a
matter of fact they are starting to make the lion king a broadway
production:):):)

so....what disney movie would you like to see them do?

don't forget the oldies, they are some of the best!

hope that this is a decent thread, if i come up with something a little more
clever i will let all of you know.

tata for now--tucker

since i am a "newbie," i figured i would throw my change in here as well.  i
think if anything all the inside jokes have only made me want to get to know
everyone more.  the way everyone teases susan and tried to get sundara a
computer... well, to me that sounds like a group i want to be a part of.  i
am not personally that entertained by the religious thread because i happen
to be a christian, but i still am open minded enough to see the humor in a
lot of it.
i guess i am basically saying that while some new listers are unsure, others
of us are finding the same things they consider annoying to be inviting...

        now, now. that's not fair to single out one specific creature.
we all know that a & e love all beasts. besides, we could just as easily
say our sacred animal should be a lone coyote or a family of prairie dogs
accompanied by a rabbit.  ;)

sara lee and michael stipe (again negotiable.. except for sara)

alright now... time for us newbies to come out of our lurking-places and
prove that we really do exist out here.

here's one newbie to the list who felt included immediately... right
away... from the start... right after signing up... as the first message
hit the mail server :~)

considering the comments i've heard from a+e (ok ok i read it in the faq
:~)  which i really did read, believe it or not) some of the threads strike
me as being none of our business (cough cough underwear cough),  but most
of em are lotsa fun... and the people on this list are just great

back to lurking

oh, you are by far not the only one for whom the indigo girls appear at
inopportune times.  the weatherman here earlier in the semester said
something about summer finally ending, and, of course, in  popped
*summer's beginning to give up her fight*. we told ghost stories on
halloween, and i don't think i even have to explain that to you.

finally, and the worst of all, i live (well, while i'm at school, anyway)
in pittsburgh (all hail the stillers...yeah, right.) anyway, it's also
known as *the city of three rivers*. our stadium (baseball) is three
river's stadium. i went to a game there and tried to concentrate, and all
i could think of was *i wish i had a river i could skate away on*.
thouroughly distracted me from the game, i might add.

random ig appearances...i was in the 7-11 last night, buying mountain dew,
when all of a sudden i heard *closer to fine* playing over the speakers.
apparently, the management lets the employees play whatever they want, and
the guy behind the counter was on an ig kick. my roommate had to
physically drag me out of there...

help me, i'm losing my mind. whoever said finals were a good idea?

subject:      gold albums and a mini-rant

hey everyone,

just read on the sony music ig site that "strange fire" and
"1200 curfews" recently both went gold.  whoohoo.  the
ig faq has now been updated to include this information.

just in case anyone wants to know, the sony ig site is at
http://www.sony.dreammedia.com/epiccenter/docs/artistupdate.qry?artistid=83,
which takes you to the same site that the url posted earlier
by chris becker points to.  the ig faq (which it is highly
recommended that you read) can be found at
http://www.fl.net.au/~sherlyn/ig or via anon ftp at chris
becker's site at space.mit.edu/pub/cmb/ig.

now for the rant.  can we please please please try to cut
down on the volume of nigc coming through the list?  let
me paraphrase and simplify from the faq:
- posts about the music of the indigo girls - good.
- posts about starting our own religion - funny but irrelevant.
- chain letters, of whatever sort - bad.
- crossposts, whether you think they're humourous or not - bad.
- virus warnings - bad.
etc etc etc...

do you see what i'm getting at here?  the "indigo girls" in
"indigo girls mailing list" should also be a big clue.  please
folks, help us cut down on the nigc bandwidth and take it to
private email.  thanks.

i feel kind of 'responsible' because of the whole susan marine fan club thing,
which i assure you is totally, 100% a joke made by some extremely well-meaning
close pals of mine on this list. i'm sure they'd be mortifed, as i am, knowing
our little humorous romp through cyberspace might drive you away.

this list is usually way more content-dense and fluff-scarce. so please, give
it a little time won't ya? if we still seem like the same bunch of stupid asses
when things get back to normal, i'll understand if you run screaming like your
skivvies is on fire!

subject:      igs on tim rice collection

saw a new recording advertised in the latest "advocate" - rhino records
(http://www.rhino.com) has come out with the "tim rice collection - stage
& screen classics." it mentions the igs as one of the performers of his
songs, i'm guessing it's "i don't know how to love him" - but i'm not sure.
other performers are elton john & rita coolidge.

the ad says:

the tim rice songbook includes the most enduring moments in contemporary
musicals. the lyricist behind such brillant productions as 'evita,'
'jesus christ superstar,' 'chess,' and 'the lion king' is honored on
this 18-song collection of his most loved work. pulled from the original
cast and soundtrack recordings, the 'tim rice collection' features
performances by elton john, the indigo girls, rita coolidge, and others.
available at record stores everywhere or call 1-800-432-0020, dept. 630,
to order.

hi, it's me again... the girl who asked about kts yesterday.  i just wanted
to thank everyone again that wrote to me about this.

i decided to post this to the list in case anyone else was wondering, too.
everyone who's written back (and that includes people from the melissa
etheridge list, where i also posted the question) has said that yes, kts is
indeed a legal/legit company, and that their cd's are pretty good quality.  i
wasn't sure whether or not to order but after hearing what people have had to
say, i placed my order for _in with the out crowd_ earlier today.

thanks again, everyone!

it's actually "everything's alright" and i believe the perfprmers are listed
as amy ray, michael lorant, emily saliers, and cicada sings, but i might have
screwed up their order... on the whole, i don't have much to say about the
collection, but i suppose i should get it, being the completist... =}  peace,

subject:      (nigc) thousandth post of life cycle of mailing lists

        the amazing and talented (but perhaps not the one you want driving
your car... *tiny* accidents hon?) binky (aka pixie aka yknib) pondered
amidst her studies....

>soon everyone will be off on holiday break and the list mail
>will dwindle to a mere trickle...then we will be sad.

>in direct connection to college shedules (finals seem to

        yes.  it is just you.  no, really... i have seen the following on
several lists (including this one) most of which are far more unfriendly
than this has ever approached.  i felt like it was my turn to repost it.
the gawd of mailing lists came to me in a dream or some such thing. enjoy.

***

the natural life cycle of mailing lists

every list seems to go through the same cycle:

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

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

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

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

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

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

or

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

***
        of course as long as yknib, sundara, kirsten, kim (pr), karey, jeni,
etc etc and myself hang here... maturity seems a long shot.... lololol!

i joined the list last week, and already i feel like i'm a part of
it.  the best thing to do is sort through the stuff you don't want
to read, find something that interests you, and comment on it.  i
promise, you'll get a lot of reactions.  but everyone here is soooo
nice, and there are no arguments- only debates.  stick around,
you'll find it's worthwhile!

you've never had it so good!   for us blokes it's about twice as high!
mine cost over 400 quid (and my car only cost 150)!   the excuse being

subject:      caroline aiken signs with silverwolf records

hey y'all,

some good news on the caroline aiken front:

caroline aiken has signed an exclusive recording deal with east coast
independent label, silverwolf records.  atlanta-based aiken is slated to
record her first album for silverwolf records in january for a spring 1997
release.  the album will feature aiken's solo-acoustic work, as well as some
guest vocalists.  aiken says, "this is what every musician hopes for --
those who believe in the music and the ability of the artist enough to
invest time, money, heart and soul.  i feel fortunate to have this in front
of me, with the team i have to do it with."

caroline aiken's self-produced albums feature appearances by friends such as
bonnie raitt and indigo girls.  her current release, "live bait," is in
rotation on radio stations across the country.

silverwolf records is owned and operated by murray krugman, who has produced
albums by blue oyster cult, johnny winter, mahavishnu orchestra and the
dictators.  in 1995, silverwolf records released several compilation cds,
including "women of kerrville" and the "silverwolf homeless project," as
well as "generica," featuring spoken word artist chris chandler.  krugman
will produce aiken's albums for the label.  says krugman, "in the acoustic
class, i'll take caroline at six furlongs or a mile and a half."

subject:      a note to the newbies

all out there

i'm sure there are lots of newbies who get a little frightened about the
activity that happens in here. i have been a member for a round 12 mnths
now and although my posts have been few and far between recently i love
it.

the thing to point out to the newbies is plainly this. when there is
little real ig activity, no new album, tour, apperance etc .. we all get
a little bit itchy and have to do something to cover this. in my eyes is
is a testament to the unity and attitude of the list to still maintain a
high level of traffic even when little is happening.

hang in there and get to know the people, they will welcome you and
include you as if you'd been here forever. don't be afraid to ask
something that you might think is old or a common. we are all here to
learn more about ig and in some cases each other.

stick around and join the party ....

i love disney too!  hmmmm....let me think....since they are so supportive
of the native americans, would "pocahontas" be appropriate?  amy could be

hey y'all....i just want to say that this life cycle thingy concerns me.  this list has been a life saver for me.  i have finally found some people that i can talk to about things that are important, who share ideas freely, and always make me feel welcome.  i get the digests, and sometimes even they get kind of long, but the feelings of familiarity, welcome, and belonging i have felt since joining are worth wading through a whole weekend's worth of digests occasionally.

this whole discussion makes me think of tucker's post yesterday (?) about reading chicken soup for the soul to her grandmother--that reminded me that people  are what's important in this world, and when we are too busy to be bothered with people, we need to get rid of some of the clutter in our lives.

just my $.02.

hey y'all,
        i rememer a while back someone commenting on the impressive fiona
apple. well, i got her cd yesterday, tidal, and was surprised to see
that one of her bass players is the festive sara lee. isn't that cool?
it's an outstanding album, i can't believe fiona is only 18 yrs old.
anyways, you know that obnoxious game six degrees of kevin bacon, i bet
we could do a pretty good job at six degrees of indigo and link any
artist to the indigo girls. for example, fiona apple to indigo girls b/c
sara lee played with fiona apple and sara lee played with indigo girls.
since the girls have been around so long, it prolly works pretty well.
good luck on all your finals everyone, my last one is today :)

dave, who can't decide on a good sig file so just won't bother

if you like joni's rules, may i suggest you pick up an album?  greg
greenway's "a road worth walking down".  the last song is a live track
entitled "massachusetts" which puts into verse the true boston driving
experience ... heck ken "babyface" rodgers, dean of the college of
automusicology (this is where i lose the non-npr listeners), has
selected a verse from the song as the midshow interlude on "car talk."

not to mention greg is a wonderful artist, and the rest of the album
is very, very good.  you won't be disappointed. =)

correction!  its now the fourth time that you saw it considering you
sent it back through the list in the same message you were complaining about
it?!?!?!?!?

hello?!?  mcfly?  do you see the problem here?

i have much less of a problem with someone who honestly thought they
were helping and providing a service to the list at large.  yeah,
maybe they shouldn't have.  maybe it is the longest running piece of
urban folklore i know of.  but at least people can make cookies and
some poor schmo at the make a wish foundation isn't getting bobmarded
with get well cards for a 20 year old.

not only did you pump back what you were complaining about in the
first place, not 2 hours ago you wrote the list about how you were
unfairly getting flamed for nigc, like that "cuisnart sex" (or
whatever) thing.

/** end of flamage **/

now lets make peace, ok?

the faq exists, in part, because hoaxes have been around since the
only purpose of the internet was communication during a nuclear
attack.  even if you've never seen it, its probably been around.  if
you think something is a great idea and want to increase exposure by
spamming it, confirm it first!  it could simply be a phone call --
make-a-wish probably has a craig shergold hotline set up.  tell us
that you personally confirmed it.  tell us when to stop forwarding the
thing, or better yet -- tell us not to.

and please, edit your posts to the minimum of quoted material.  if you
don't know how, and you've done an rtfm, find a local person to help
you.

or you can get the same song, live version on a new compilation,
volume 2 of chrstine lavin's laugh tracks.  i cant recall who else is
on that one (though i think cliff eberhardt is).  volume one features
patty larkin, cheryl wheeler, vance gilbert (you gotta hear
contry-western rap).  they are fabulous albums, out on shanachie.  a lot
of really funny stuff from a lot of great songwriters on those
collections.

wholeheartedly agree, though i think "sinnging for the landlord" is
my favorite of his two albums.

i'd been thinking all those posts about ig on the radio were getting a
bit tedious, but just now least complicated came on (wxpn philly, so
probably if i listened more often it wouldn't even be a big deal) and now
i understand the excitement.  it would be so cool if someone took my
entire tape-and-cd collection and started broadcasting.  (well, not the
whole thing....i must confess to owning thriller and the we are the world
soundtrack and a couple of middle-school-bad-taste mixes.)

anyway.  this final paper stuff is bringing out the procrastination and
the guilt in me.  those of you who have emailed in response to my bio
paper...thanks, and i *will* write back, somewhat soon.  anyone who has
spend significant time on a kibbutz and wouldn't mind me asking a couple
of questions, i'd love to here from you.....my current paper is about
sexual equality and the role of women on the kibbutz.  (anyone who's just
completely confused by what a kibbutz is, relax, this paper will be up on
my web page when it's done and you can all read what i've -not- been
working on all semester. ;)

i am going to shut up now and get some work done.  thank you all for the

oooh! now that's a lovely holiday thought

in response to joni, i want to go too!

there's this song called "lo, how a rose" and it's got four (singing) parts and
it's usually sung acapella
it's my favorite christmas carol besides silent night

and that's what we would sing, standing in a circle, holding candles

'sigh'

quite the contrary, my dear.  if you look at my address (@mit.edu), you
will see that i, myself, am a boston driver  (mit, as in massachusetts
institute of technology).  i am also a master, especially at "slalom pot
holes."  i think someday, yes someday, that will be an olympic event, and i
will be like little mary lou retton and will win lots and lots of gold
medals.  someday....

beth, you and i should start a new tourist attraction called "drive with a
real boston driver."  we could take people around boston, and drive, well,
like we always do.  [we'd hang a sign in the car that said "please, people,
don't try this at home...we are professionals...."]  we could definately
rake in the dough, don't you think?  we'd charge extra in the snow 'cuz
we'd go to big empty parking lots and do "doughnuts."  whoo hoo!

i'd like as my first customer....susan marine....you need to get back on
that horse, honey.  you'll never fear driving in the snow again...probably
'cuz you'd never drive in the snow again after driving with me...hehe  ;o)

(it's been way too long since the last time we picked on you suzieq...)

see ya!

i second that, alot of my friends are taking them and having lots-o-fun,
but not really,

if anyone wants a copy of most (to my belief) of the songs sung by the
indigo girls, old and new, though if someone who is sure of their list
could send me a copy, i would be greatly appriciative (spelling?)

        okay.  i'll bring my ovation, and do my best to arm-twist jeni into
bringing her jackson.  however, it has been a very long time since i even
pretended to play guitar, and in those days i was the long-haired, black
eyeliner, bangs-over-my-eyes,  rocker, hard rock, lead guitarist in a sort
of odd punk band type... now, i am getting "old" and jeni makes me trim my
bangs. (just kidding).  so, you are all hereby instructed not to expect me
to play, just cuz' i'm bringing one. (unless you wanna' hear out-of-practice
renditions of punk/hard rock stuff from the late 80s, haha) heck, sharoane
still hasn't gotten me a capo thing so i can't even try <sniff sniff> to
learn any ig songs.
        question: is anyone (such as our illustrious hostess') bringing any
sort of amplification device, or should i make jeni bring her practice amp too?

#1: case in point:  i purchased a blue suede vest from the women's
department at a major department store.  my cost: $29.99

i purchased a similar black suede vest from the men's department at another
major department store:  my cost: $16.99 (bought the brown suede too at
that price...)

or jaywalk! woo hoo!
why?

* at any boston street crossing, you can tell who the tourists are by looking
who isn't jaywalking.

* if the boston police gave out jaywalking tickets, they wouldn't be able to
do anything else and murderers, rapists, and politicians would run loose on
the streets of roxbury and roslindale.

* if marc cohn wrote a song about boston, he would call it "jaywalking in
boston".

okay, back to studying for my russian final *sigh*.

subject:      watershed

i know that i have said this before, but does anyone else love the song
watershed as much as i do?  for some reason this song just gets to me.  all
of their songs are great and meaningful, but i feel as though my life can be
described just by this song.
thought i knew my mind like the back of my hand,
the gold and the rainbow, but nothing panned out as i planned. (boy is this
true =))
and they say only milk and honey's gonna make your soul satisfied!
well i better learn how to swim
cause the crossing is chilly and wide.(so lonely sometimes, even when you
have people who love you by your side.)
twisted guardrail on the highway, broken glass on the cement-
a ghost of someone's tragedy
how recklessly my time has been spent.
and they say that it's never too late, but you don't get any younger. (no
kidding)!
well i better learn how to starve the emptiness
and feed the hunger. (well that just speakes for itself).
up on the watershed, standing at the fork in the road
you can stand there and agonize (which i have done plenty of).
till your agony's your heaviest load.
you'll never fly as the crow flies, get used to a country mile. (getting there.)
when you're learning to face the path at your pace
every choice is worth your while. (what if it is the wrong path?)
well there's always retrospect to light a clearer path
everyfive years or so i look back on my life
and have a good laugh. (oh yes, this one is really true, also some good
cries too. =))
you start at the top, go full circle round
catch a breeze, take a spill- (how many spills are there going to be?)
but ending up where i started again makes me wanna stand still,
stepping on a crack, breaking up and looking back
every tree limb overhead just seems to sit and wait
until every step you take becomes a twist of fate.

this song just hits home.  anyone out there agree, disagree? anything?
take care all..only five more days of listville for me..until mid jan. that is..
tucker

one of the reasons i wanna make a archive(like we have on another list i
have ) is that you send  a request for just what yo want and boom it gets
sent to you also some folks dont have browsers just email boxes also the
web is slow some places cant accesss other places places like australia
only have one line going in and out of the country to web access for them
is slow

subject:      newbies.

it's been interesting reading all this advice . . . except for one thing.
i'm not a newbie.  i've been on the list for over three years, i started
reading back when stephen was listmeister.  i've seen silly posts {m&ms
anyone?}, flame wars, etc etc etc.

i knew that, at one point, there had been a news-only version, but at the
time i wasn't particularly interested.  i couldn't remember if it still
existed or not, which is why i originally asked.

the reason i asked for it is nothing against y'all.  as i said, i've been
here for quite awhile.  i'm an accomplished lurker.  i know there's
nothing really going on right now with the girls themselves.  there's only
so much that can be said about things that have been discussed and
discussed and discussed before.  {not that silence on a list when there's
nothing going on is a bad thing!}  if it weren't for the list, i would
never have known about the honor the earth discs, or the demo tour, and i
certainly wouldn't have as many bootlegs as i do.  i really love the
feeling of community here.

*but* there's a lot going on right now.  not even just the holidays and
such; but my thesis, searching for a grad school, a new job, a new home.
i'm still *very* interested in the girls and their music.  this list is
really the only way that i know anything that's going on with them.  but
there's so much extraneous (i'm sure i just misspelled that!) posting on
the list right now.

people have suggested the digest form of the list to me, but that does no
good when there's 5-8 screens of chain letter or boston driving {not to
criticise anyone, just using an example :) }.  there's still all that to
scroll through, and none of it with any true content.

this is not meant in any way to flame someone.  i just recognise that i'm
running low on time {thank god my finals are done though!}, and that it
can take a pretty fair amount of time to wade through all the stuff on the
list.

which is why i've asked about the news-only list.  it doesn't exist now,
but what are the chances of setting one up?  perhaps even as a moderated
version of this list {set up a bot that automatically filters out anything
that says nigc at the top?}, so that no one has to worry about missing out
an any announcements, tour info, bootleg stuff, etc etc etc.

tera.

        hi y'all...


        a couple of days ago i asked:


        which girl was writing and performing something other than music in
elementary school, and what was she writing?


        and what was the title and genre of her first work?


        are you ready for the answer and the winners (and half-credits and the
ceative honorable mentions)???


        <color><param>0000,0000,ffff</param>okay, it was amy...she wrote plays
and the first work was "the christmas rose" which was kind of a funky
science fiction play.

</color>

        carolyn gets full credit!!!  katy, susan, deb r., wendell and camille
get half-credit and jamie gets the "nice try, but not even close" award
<<g>...

        and anna gets the creative honorable mention for this answer...


        emily with "love letters to danny" in the genre of "do you want to come
over to my house and play?"

        thanks for humoring me all!!!

subject:      ig as a religion (and this time i ain't jokin' brothers...)

i was reading the book "drawing down the moon", which, from what i
understand, is a classic as far as literature on paganism is concerned...
what i saw there was a section on the church of all worlds...  this, for
those of you who don't know (and any who do, correct my mistakes) is a
religion, legally, that exists based on the writing of robert heinlein,
specifically (drum roll... it's alec's controversial book!!!!)  stranger in
a strange land.  it made me think for a second.....  if someone can start a
religion based on a sci-fi book (damn good one, too), why not a band, or,
specifically, a doctrine based on music in general that revolves around the
theme...  this would include, in my opinion, the girls, dar, (i don't know
enough me to comment), the dead, maybe phish (though they're more erisian, i
think), maybe tmbg, and a host of other bands that we all think have good
themes...  we could write our own tao-te-ching of sorts...  it would be
interesting to experiment with, just as a suggestion to think about...  i
mean, if every meeting started with the song reunion or something...  (used
for title as opposed to content)...  and ended with something... maybe ctf
:)  who knows...  all i know is that i claim court bard...  or at least, one
of them...

i don't know, just rambling on little caffeine and little sleep,

alec

ps.  just finished one paper, as soon as i get it back, i'm free for a month
on career internship...  god love the a-school...  :)

concert at my house i could be happier!
        since i am only a senior in high school and one of the young list

college stuff.  well, today a got an early decision acceptance letter
from cornell university and i am just soooo excited!!!  i don't know why
i'm posting this to the list but i just wanted to share my happiness and
i thought maybe some of you list members could possibly have tips,
advice or any other knowledge they might have about cornell.  anyway, i
won't babble on longer and annoy you guys.  so have a great indigo day,
i know i will!

ok, ok, how many of you are reading this post just because of the rem
connection?  huh?

now that i've gotcha, i want to tell you about a group called acumen.
ig-types might enjoy them.  right now, they've got a cd out -- "out of
balance" -- with a song called "hawk."  and knowing some of the story behind
the song makes listening to it that better. you can download a sound byte of
"hawk" on the acumen web page at:
http://www.w-link.net/~forestlawn/acumen.htm  -- tell 'em

here's my own little blurb about them from my new & improved web page:

native american flute and percussion complement acoustic 6- and 12-string
guitars to create the full, uplifting sound of "hawk."  cd available through
holographic records.

hi folks,
just returned from watching seattle reign vs. atlanta glory - women's

loudspeakers as the fans are exiting but 'closer to fine'!!!  i won't
mention the pitiable margin by which seattle lost; other than that there
was some great ball playing and great taste in music - a couple thousand
people exposed to ctf in one fell swoop.

hey y'all

        i'm studying away here for my next to last ever final (woo hoo, i'm
graduating and out of here.) and i've just got to vent a little on just
how dumb this class is.

        it's a class on communication in the media, and here's some of the
jewels of wisdom that i'm finding in my notes.

        -people carry lighters not so they can light cigarettes, but so they
can master fire at will.

        -women are attraced to men as a way of replacing their own "lost
penises"  (i can't figure out how that works...)

        -all popular music is created by the market. creativity on the part of
the artist has nothing to do with it. (hmm wonder what a&e say to this
one, and wow, there is some very slim igc in here)

        so here's what i wan't y'all to do. if you have a prof who's as
clueless as this one is, email me and tell me about it, i'll feel
better.

        and i finally get to say this!

        ..i spent 4.5 years prostrate to the higher mind
        got my paper and i was free!!!! (5 days and counting.)

but no cigarette butt left his hand....curious....  so then i say to myself
"oh, wait, it's one of those macho man things...you know, guys like to hang
their arms out of the windows...oooh, i hate that...."  then all of a
sudden, he slamms on the brakes...i'm stunned...i'm thinking "what the hell

subject:      amy mellowing???

hey guys and gals!

i am going to be bold and suggest that instead of discussing amy and emily
very private holiday plans, we talk about the music.

so here is my thesis:  amy seems to be mellowing a bit with age.

my evidence: chiapas bound and hey kind friend.  it seems to me that none of
amy's other officially released songs are nearly as melancholy as these.
even her sadder songs in the past have always had a feel of strength and
defiance.  these new ones, especially chiapas bound imo, have a much more
worn-down feeling.  like she might be getting a bit more weary of this world.

so what do you all think???

oh, and if i were ever in a room with ani and had a chance to talk, i would
ask her the following question:

"would you recommend leaving everywhere that you have ever been?"

(the first guy that gets that one gets a wedding proposal. :)

whatever,

subject:      telluride tree -- november leaves!!

hey all you procrastinators who are born in november and want a telluride
boot but haven't e-mailed me yet:

i am your branch (i feel honored). :)  however, this branch is migrating
from school here in indiana (where i have e-mail) home to michigan (where i
don't have e-mail) on dec. 17 (this is also when i'm signing off the list.
saddness.  but i don't have room for the 1500 messages i would have in my
box when i came back from break).

if you want a boot and haven't e-mailed me yet: please do it by dec. 16!
otherwise i won't get your message till mid-january when i come back.  and
that would be a catastrophe, don't you agree? :)

to all you who have written me, thank you and i will be prompt in sending
them back to you.  i'm getting my wisdom teeth taken out over break (all
four and they're all impacted!) and will have plenty of time to dub boots.

subject:      <uhm> *surprising* ig covers

so i'm hanging out at the campus police station just a little while ago,
waiting to get my new student id (it disappeared for the second time this
semester into the black hole in my room) when i idly pick up the cd displayed
on the counter, a benefit for the campus police by one of the multitude of
campus a capella groups, blue notes. and lo and behold, what song on the set
list catches my eye but _least complicated_. of course, i blow the grocery
money on the cd just for this. hey, food or ig covers...easy choice. :-d

also, in sync, one of the even larger multitude of a capella groups at
brandeis university, recorded _galileo_ on their new cd, whose title escapes
me.

i'll tape the least complicated cover for anyone who wants it. it's, er,
*interesting* (no, actually, it's pretty good--someone in my russian class
does a solo on it, so i have to say that :-|#))

subject:      ig dream

hey all...
last night i dreamed i was at an ig concert...they started singing
tangled up in blue, but they were doing it in a different style than on
curfews - hard to explain...what is even harder to explain is the fact
that they were decked out in lime green sequined tuxedos, complete with
matching bowler hats (not like a hat worn by someone who is bowling -
you know they have a small brim and they're rounded on top), and if that
weren't enough, they had a whole chorus line of identically clad people
around them (except they were wearing top hats).  anyway i was thinking
boy, their shows sure have come along way from two people and two
guitars, and i was trying to decide whether i liked the show or not.
then a & e took their hats off and were getting so into the music and
were acting so funny (not in a weird way - in a good way), and they just
looked so darn cute up there, i decided i had to like it!
must have been something i ate...

hi everyone,

i was doing my normal lurking in the shadows and i was wondering if the
girls are touring with a band  in may.  and if they are which do ya'll like
better - the girls with a band or without.  of course they are incredible
either way live but which do you prefer.  personally i like it when it is
just the two of them.  it seems more personal.  just a thought.  i hope
everyone has a happy indigo day.

   well, i like them by themselves when they sing slow songs, but when they
rock, the band is essential. right?!?

believe it or not, this list is not made up entirely of college students.
in fact, i would venture a guess that the majority of us are not college
students.  it's just that all the students are so vocal about their exams
and lack of money.  i would love to bitch about my job here, but i don't
think that is appropriate - that what friends are for.  :)

so although volume may decrease (which isn't necessarily a bad thing imho),
there will still be quite a few of us around during the holidays.

:dwayne, at work again.

i have to say that although i love amy and em when it's just them i
loooveee hearing them with jerry and sarah.  it adds a lot more
dimension to the music.  maybe i'm biased because i'm a musician who
can never find a drummer of bassist to play with but i have to say
that it you have them and they are good take advantage of the
intrumentation and go, go, go.

--- end of quoted material ---

one of the 28,000  acappella groups here at dartmouth ( i swear, there are sooo
many acapella groups....a recent article in the college paper suggested that
being in an acapella group was a new requirement for grauation!)  is called the
deci-belles, and does an awesome cover of "love will come to you"...i almost
like it better than the ig version (almost)

i'll probably throw it on the next ten or 60 boots i am dubbing for people.
maybe we (not me, but someone who is organized) should make a tape of all the
acapella versions of ig songs?

i'm thinking of doing my own acappella album entitled
"don't drop the soap! susan b marine and her fan club sing in the shower"

bwaaa!

ahhhh, now there's a good idea...
em doing gretel and amy doing hansel a la humperdinck's opera!
can't you just hear the dream pantomime? mmmmmmmmm...
and the whole opera would fit quite nicely with the girls' habit of
thinking they are playing a happy song and it turns out to be sad...
(like the quote i love off newport...right after winthrop, amy kinda sighs
and says, "man, that's a sad song...")
okay, fine, maybe not everyone else out there was raised on opera and
johnny cash...

subject:      pnw party, me tonight, and blather (igc near the bottom)

re: the party - jeni and i will bring our guitars and a practice amp.  this
means that a gorgeous ovation acoustic will be there as well as an equally
gorgeous jackson electric. once again i shall remind that i have not been a
guitarist for several years and thus shall not be playing, but y'all are
welcome to play the ovation to your hearts content.

re: tonight - anyone needing to get in touch with either jeni or i before
the party good luck... errr... i mean, hee hee, email before about 4pm pst
tonight or you'll have to call and leave a message b/c after 4 we will be on
our way to the me-list prefunct, then at the concert 9th row whoo hooo, then
out boogieing (sp?) at the (probably) wildrose with some new friends, then
home to sleep.  we may not check mail tomorrow before the party.

the party: we have to make an appearance at jeni's office's party (and its
free nummers food) then we'll sneak out and go to the pnw one.  *binky* - i
am leaving you in charge of keeping the thing going until we get there.
karey, you are in charge of keeping binky on task.  oh heck - we're also
going to have to do a "costume change" before arriving... dern....

kim in pr : you are really supposed to come to this party, you goon.

and i think that a & e need not do a movie, dis or no....  i'd never want
them to forget their day job, and they'd be wastin' good time that could be
spent writing tunes.  :-)

and, personally, i was thinkin' that amy's writing has been sounding much
more "happy" and upbeat than her earlier stuff.  not necessarily the lyrics,
but the music and the way the words are sung (chickensorprano - what's the
word for that?).  shame, dgtgag (yes, down song, but i stand behind my
premise), and hey kind friend.  personally, i get more of a "happy" and
"contented" overall feeling from these than anything previous.  not so much
musical discord... if that is the correct term.

no no no no no a thousand times no.

repeat after me: "the only way that a virus can spread via e-mail is if the
e-mail contains an executable program or a word document, i download, decode,
and decompress the file, it contains a virus, and i open it on my personal
computer. warnings that viruses can spread via plaintext email are bogus.
never ever ever spread virus alerts. remember, just because i read something
doesn't mean it's true."

kirsten

     "its for real. its an opportunistic self-replicating email virus
      which tricks its host into replicating it, sometimes adding as many
      as 200,000 copies at a go. it works by finding hosts with defective
      parsing apparatus which prevents them from understanding that a
      piece of email which says there is an email virus and then asking
      them to remail the message to all their friends is the virus
      itself."--clay shirky

i seem to be repeating myself. why o why do people just *refuse* to get a
clue??

fsck! so you have those two three-years-overdue library books, half my
expensive renewal batteries, my friendship-bracelet kit, my second computer
science assignment sheet from last spring, the address of my summer employer
who was supposed to write me a reference and never did, my brande-new purple
neck warmer, and the library-children's-room gerbil who escaped five years
ago and was never seen again?!
yet another useless post from kirsten

okay, well, some at least. sorry to set your hearts all a-jumping. :)

that reaction upon reading it that "wow! you mean a & e are _really_ gonaa
come have dinner with me and go caroling and a private concert and all
that good stuff?" well...uh, sorry....not. :) )

anyway, here's the igc:
as i had dinner with some of my relatives over thanksgiving who are from
brewster (little town-thing in eastern washington-that's washington state
for those of you not from around here-), they mentioned driving through
winthrop. so what should i start humming in my head? yup, you've got it.
and then it occured to me: winthrop is in eastern washington, with no mass
bodies of water anywhere near. i even checked the map--pun intended! ha
ha-- just to make sure. yup, it is. so how could "fishermen complain about
the catch [and] talk about tides"?!? is there another winthrop somewhere
that the song was written for? if there is, i guess i can handle it....oh,
well. at least us pnw'ers have "hey kind friend".

and to the (newer than me) newbies: when i joined, the topic of the day
was llama flipping. never had i felt so instantly at home. :)

oh, bother....i was trying to be a bandwidth conservationist and post all
my recent ruminations in one post, but have forgotten them. phooey.

oh, yeah--on the solo song thread, isn't "romeo and juliet" sung solo by
amy? i know, i know, it's technically not an ig song, but still...

hi there!

very intresting thread, if we could call it a * thread *!!
i think a & e still love their martin acoustics; i saw in
their graceful hands j40 and j40 black (amy, of course), but also
d45 and d28 (maybe it was hd 28 or a similar model).
in boys on the side amy seems to play a small martin 12 strings,
but i'm not really sure. who has figured out the model? please email me.
amy also loves stratocasters... while i just can't figure out what
kind of electric guitar emily plays, i mean the red/orange one!
is that a gretsch or a guild, or what?!!
and what's the guitar amy plays on bobya cover? (breedlove? collings? santa
cruz?)
i'd love to get further information about ig guitars....

hey, how many of you out there can play a 6 strings?!

chiara, strumming.....

ok, i'll go for this one.
i agree. remember the days when amy sad was blood and fire, or romeo?
remember her standing on one foot, pounding on her black martin, with the
other foot wavering up and down in something resembling time to the
music, and _screaming_ into the mic? now we have a softer, bobbling up
and down to the time of hey kind friend with that little "hey-i'm-ok-cuz-
i've-seen-a-lot-but-i'm-gonna-be-ok-anyway" grin on her face, or quiet
tears after chiapas bound. hmm, wonder why our favorite songs are always
the ones that make amy cry.

i don't really know what to say about this one.  i can see your point with
the songs being a little more mellow, but at the same time she still has
that good old amy attitude.  am i making any sense here? =)  lets face it,
she has been through a lot, wouldn't you be getting tired as well?  no

actually, in a way i might agree with this. "popular" music would be that
crap played on pop music stations, right? those radio stations _rarely_
play ig, michelle malone, dar williams, cheryl wheeler, caroline aiken,
melissa ferrick, patty larkin, billy pilgrim, shawn mullins, phil norman
(got one in there for ya, buddy!;)...etc etc, ad infinitum. all of these
artists, plus a bazillion others i'm not naming have honest to god
creativity and talent. but i don't hear them being played on pop stations
(possibly because i don't listen to the radio.) what _is_ being played on
pop radio? well, artists like...um, i don't know, i don't listen to the
radio, but i know it's a lot of no-talent crap (for the most part.) why
is that no-talent crap on the radio while bottomless wells of talent lie
practically untapped? marketing. popular demand. why do most of the
artists on the radio produce no-talent crap? popular demand, why else?
that, unfortunately, is what america wants to hear. sounds about right to me.

well, i think we've all been there, but please tell me that you at least
made the attempt to disagree with your prof. too many people make the
mistake of thinking that if a prof says it, you must not be allowed to
disagree. quite the contrary. most profs (especially literature,
philosophy, and the like) are thrilled to have a student with the
presence of mind and the balls to put up a decent argument. don't sit
there and blindly write down what they're saying if you know it's drivel.
if it's drivel, say it's drivel.

enough pontificating,
