subject:      ellen sponsers (nigc)

hey everyone!

i decided than i would write all the companies who advertised during the
ellen coming-out episode and thank them for their support of her show and
gay people, and blah blah blah, all that stuff.  i don't think i actually
support these companies or buy their products (cause they probably do bad
stuff that my liberal bleeding heart wouldn't approve of)  but, i still
think they deserve to be recognized and if they get positive feedback, it
might keep them from listeing to the anti-gay people who are screaming
and yelling at them.

soooo, in case any of you wants to do something similar or whatever, here
are the sponsers:

volkswagen (which, by the way, was a pretty cool covertly gay commercial)
paramount
new line cinema
one-a-day vitamins
hbo
burlington coat factory
warner bros.
listerine
neosporin
gramercy
universal
tri-star
fem-stat (hah-weren't they smart, they knew how many lesbians would be
watching)
gap
krups
colombia
trident
sudafed
20th century fox
slim-fast
calvin klein
fruitopia (actually, they didn't advertise, but she did drink one during
the show)

umm, so there ya go. sorry it took me a week to post this.  i don't have
any addresses, and i'm web-disabled, so if anybody has them, or has spare
time and wants to find them, please send them to me.  i'll be on a
mission to find their addy's later this week, and would love help (and if
enough people want them, i'll post the addy's to the list when i've got a
complete list)

alright.  enough of my political-ness. back to your regularly scheduled
whatever the hell this list is.

love!

subject:      u2 for free (sigc)

hi all,

    went to the u2 concert last night, well, heard u2 last night!  around
9:30 p.m. shila and i stepped outside here in eugene only to hear u2, clear
as a bell from their concert ten minutes away!  wow, it was so loud (they had
like, 159 speakers).  so, we grabbed the dogs and drove to the cheap seats
across from autzen stadium. :) (we're not big fans, but do enjoy their older
stuff).  we heard about 10 songs from the set.  mostly old, yeah!  it proved
to be a great spur o' the moment date.  we were among many others who
listened from outside the stadium.
     the funny part came when i was boasting, feeling so enlightened "jeez,
the sound out here is great.  its probably better than it is inside, i'd much
rather be out here.  gosh i love this, i could sit out here anytime, who
needs to pay 50.00 be in there...blah blah"
     shila pipes up with "now you know,  you would not be so darned happy if
that was amy and emily singin' in there, and you were out here sittin' in the
dirt!"

she's right.  so very, very right.  :)
and ohhh, would i pay $$$!

then she remenisced (again) about when ig opened for the dead at autzen in
'93, and i whined (again) about the things that kept me from being at that
show :(  we had fun!

see ya later,

is it me, or is anyone else tired of the fact that so many people feel
that they need to defend themselves whenever they say something that's
not completely boring? at least you didn't say "donning my asbestos
suit...", which would've made my teeth hurt.  i almost think that this
sort of pre-emptive strike encourages rather than discourages "flames",
even if it's a plaintive "pleeeze don't flame meeeeee".

i've been of this list for several months now, and except for the poul
espisode, i haven't seen a single flame worth the name.  not even in
the spelling-and-punctuation wars.  just some snippy stuff that should
have been ignored.  if you want to see a real flame war, check out the
usenet group soc.bi any day of the week.  there'll be several, complete
with constant ad-hominem attacks.  funny, i don't hang out there nearly
as often as i used to...

am i missing something?  are people getting real flames in private
e-mail?  i've gotten one sorta pissy message once, but nothing to write
home about.

people, say what you want to say, and say it proud!

wow, i had no idea i was going to go off on that whole thing when i
started this post.  i meant to just congratulate chickensoprano on
a hilarious little ditty.  sigh.

mm can be clearly be heard on backups in this song.  however, the 'yeah's ar

subject:      my understanding of vegitarianism!
x-to:         u410001@vm.sc.edu

i have a few brief (hopefully, but ya never know once i get started!)
comments.  there are two main things. one is just the point of factory
farming.  yes, they die in the wild. and i agree with you. that is evolution
and nature.  what humans do is institutionalize animals. and it is untrue
that they live a decent life.

foie gras....do you know how this is made?  geese are force feed thru a
feeder 3x/daily for 28 days.many times, their stomachs burst. this is
considered a delicacy food.   pigs are crammed into pens so small that they
start chewing on each other's asses and tails.  so, they have their tails
chopped off at birth instead.   for veal, baby calves are chained in cages
jsut big enough to hold them. for the duration of their lives, they are
unable to move around. this is to produce the "tenderness" of the meat.
chickens are pumped with steroids.  male cattle are castrated to make them
more docile.  female cows are kept pregnant (insemination) throughout their
lives in order to continuously produce milk. their young are taken away
immmediately. they look content because they are pumped with tranqulizers. in
egg factories male chicks are weeded out. they are thrown into plastic bags
and many are crushed while possibly still living.

next is the waste issue.  beef cattle return only 1lb of meat for every 16
lbs. of soybeans and grains they're fed.  it takes 2,500 gallons of water to
produce 1 lb of meat, and only 25 to produce a pound of wheat.  the world's
cattle alone (not including pigs and chix, etc) consume the claoric
equivalent to feed 8.7 billion people (2x the human population).  hundreds of
millions of grain go to animals while only 5 million tons could adequately
feed 15 mill. children, the approx. # who starve to death each year.  the
planet's petroleum supply would be depleated in 13 ys. if all countries
manufactured and maintained the same meat-centered diet as america.  200 ys.
ago cropland topsoil averaged 21 inches and now only 6 inches remian.  every
yr. in the us, an area the size of ct is lost to topsoil erosion (85% of
which is associated with livestock production).  mcdonalds alone is
responsible for the depletion of thousands and thousands of acres of
rainforest (which cannot grow back).  the forests are cleared for cattle
grazing.

i hope this has been at the very least, an education!  we can get all of the
vitamnins, minerals and protiens necessary w/o eating meat.  only very rich
and industrailized countries have such huge meat-centered diets.  in this
way, we are greedy and selfish.

most of this info was taken from "101 reasons why i'm a vegetarian" by pamela
teisler. if anyone wants to buy a copy, email me for the address.

this is my personal experience with private flames:

sometimes people "flame" you with constructive criticism, and it's not bad.
if it's constructive criticism, it's constructive criticism, so there's no
bother in that. sometimes people misquote you, but if you call them on it,
they'll retract or apologize. that's not bad either. then there are some who
feel it necessary to comment (negatively) on everything you post to the list
(all of this is in private email mind you). those people can be annoying but
they're easier to ignore. then there are the extremists. those are people
who violently disagree with you. those are the ones who hurl profanity at
you to no end, as if it would change your mind about something. sometimes
they can be really bad. i had one girl (who is no longer on the list...thank
god!!) tell me that if she ever found out where i lived, she would hunt me
down and torture me. of course, i didn't take her literally. i even laughed;
but to get that type of email is a bit disturbing.

people disagree about everything, but there's no need to be militant about
it. profanity, personal attacks, and especially threats are not necessary.
i'm not talking about this list exclusively, but i have talked to a few
listees who get as much flamage as i do. i don't even post that much! i'm
sure i'll get a flame for this ;-) sometimes it is nescessary to say "please
don't flame me" when posting, because you have to be safe. people only need
one reason...

i'm not complaining so don't take it as that. i've gotten so used to being
flamed that i get a laugh out of it. i never take it personally because no
one here knows me. well, a couple of you do ;) i've gotten so many flames,
it doesn't even burn anymore. it tickles :) so for those of you who haven't
been flamed, don't take it too seriously when you do. those of you who have
been flamed, don't even worry about it.

please don't flame me for this.

;)

so sorry if this has been said...but when at their eugene concert, just
about one month ago, i don't think michelle malone was there with them
when they sang this song, and i clearly remember amy's body and head
position when she was singing the high parts.  i was impressed!  she had
her head cocked to one side (i think to her left which ever is closer to
the neck of the guitar) and a bit strained forward, and her opposite
(right) shoulder was high up to her ear, her eyes closed, and she
clearly let out the "yeah,...yeah,...yeah!"  it was great!

may, 1997

  one girl, twenty questions

jeff clark keeps 'em coming for amy ray

atlanta's love for native daughters indigo girls is large and indisputable,
and frankly, it's easy to see why. because, whether or not you appreciate
their songs, whether or not you agree with their political/social
positions, whether or not you're straight, gay, or whatever, it's very hard
to not like them. as musicians. as citizens. as people. they're as earnest
as their songs, as easygoing as a lazy day, as friendly as good neighbors.
thus, after watching them grow up in small clubs like the trackside tavern
and little five points
pub in the mid-'80s, their success - including gold records, worldwide
tours, a grammy award and four other nominations - is almost a celebration
in itself: hey! the good guys won!

rarely ones to slow down to enjoy the pleasures of such success, amy ray
and emily saliers did in fact take a break from the road and recording
studio last year to collect themselves and get their heads together. still,
amongst the traveling, soul-searching, and laying low, they managed to stay
involved in music and politics, the two worlds that merge so often in their
acoustic-based songs. first, the late '95 release of the double disc live
album 1200 curfews kept fans satiated. closer to the heart, their concern
for the rights of
indigenous americans (injuns, to the less sensitive) prompted the all-star
benefit disc honor, on ray's daemon records, which also released fine
albums by the rock*a*teens, danielle howle, and other local and regional
talent. and hey, from the looks of their new promo shots, it seems that
emily finally got a flattering haircut!

all jocularity aside, she obviously learned how to play banjo, 'cause that
stringed instrument figures prominently in the sound of "shame on you" and
"get out the map," the first two songs from shaming of the sun, the brand
new indigo girls album released april 29. at times turbulent and
reassuring, restless and emotional, the eleven songs stray very little from
what has become the duo's signature sound, yet - augmented by such diverse
backing musicians as steve earle, ulali, lisa germano, smoke, and others -
shaming of the sun is at the same time a more adventurous, worldly affair.

with the new album, it's also 'back on the bus, y'all' time again, and the
girls are gearing up for another non-stop touring year, including three big
homecoming shows later this month at chastain park. the road - or fort
worth, texas, to be exact - is where i tracked down amy ray, wound up from
a pre-show run, and ready to rip on a wide variety of subjects, as you will
see as you follow the zig-zagging path of our conversation - get out the
map, indeed! first topic of discussion: her reaction to finding bootlegs of
some early, early indigo girls recordings in an independent atlanta record
store which has been a big
supporter of the duo over the years:


amy ray: "there is some stuff going on right now that i have a problem
with. i'm not gonna name any stores, but when people take recordings that
have already been done, and they bootleg them, and they reissue them, and
make money off them, that pisses me off. like, i saw a bootleg of our ep!
they don't own the license for that! epic owns the license for that, and
they own it for a reason, because we wanted them to release it as b-sides,
and then maybe later on down the road as part of a box set. it's like, if i
wanted the thing released, we would release it! you don't take something
and steal it from somebody like
that, and make a lot of money off it. and it's wrong. it's wrong, period.
there's no question to me about it."

stomp and stammer: on the other hand, as a fan of other musicians, i'm sure you
understand that desire to 'have everything.'

"people bootleg our shows all the time. i have no problem with that. we
expect it to happen, and it's not an issue for me... [but] you know, i've
seen some bootlegs recently in atlanta that are reissues of tapes i made
when i was in high school and college, of me and emily, that i made and
gave to people as gifts. and i consider those my property. i consider them
to be things that i created myself, that are not for people to sell. and
when i see someone doing that, a store, you know, i'll withdraw my support
for them. because
it's wrong. especially if they don't ask me."

what helped inspire "shame on you," the new single?

"i saw this really cool movie called displaced in the new south [by atlanta
filmmaker david zeiger], and there was a whole section of it about
gainesville, and the poultry industry there and then later on down the road
i had heard they were starting to crack down on illegal immigrants up
there, working at these factories. but they hassled everyone, and to me,
it's like, god, how hypocritical can you get? you're running this chicken
[company], you're raking in the millions, you're hiring people for low
wages, they have terrible work conditions and the city's making money
off it, and at the same time the city's going, 'what are all these illegal
immigrants doing here?' what do you think they're doing?! they're
working, because somebody else doesn't want the job. all these people
complain that all these jobs are being taken away and stuff like that, well,
those people are the people that are willing to do it. i don't know enough
about it to spout off about it, but that's what i see from the outside."

what do you think should be done about illegal immigrants?

"oh, god, i don't know. they shouldn't have to be illegal they won't let
people in to [be citizens]. it's not like everybody can do that. i think
you have to have certain access to the infrastructure, and the resources,
and i don't know what the policies are on how many people can apply, you
know, to become citizens. i don't think it's as easy as just doing it,
though i know [the question] is a hard one, because they go, well, if all
these people come
here, we can't possibly handle it all the more i read, the more i realize i
don't know anything. so, i'm not really qualified to talk about it, except
from my perspective, [which is] it's hypocritical to be speaking about
illegal immigrants when we're immigrants ourselves. and who drew the line,
and said, 'okay, now, you're illegal and you're not'?  what if somebody had
done that to us? it's bullshit."

can you tell me about your trip to mexico in february?

"me and emily took a delegation of about 25 people down as a show of moral
support for the zapatistas the zapatistas are mayan indians who are
fighting for rights to stay on their land, and to make the decisions about
how their land is used themselves, and have access to the infrastructure
for health care and education, and basically they want the mexican people
to change the government from one that's completely corrupt to one where
people really have a voice. and they want to be part of it. and our
military is sending their military aid.
and a lot of that money is being diverted to the mexican military's effort
against the mayan indians. the tanks drive through every day, the roads
were built so the tanks can go into these villages, woman are raped, people
can't walk from one village to the other without being harassed. the
military recruits women from the village to be prostitutes for the army.
and it's just sick, and it's what we call low-intensity war. i've been down
there twice, now, and i've seen it, and i'm tellin' you, we shouldn't be
giving that money to them by not saying anything, and by not speaking out
about human rights down there, we are
completely adding to the situation. so, our government either needs to get
out of there, or they need to take a stand on the human rights."

the crumbled relationship you sing about in "don't give that girl a gun,"
is that based on something you recently went through?

"oh yeah. all my songs are based on fact. they're literal. that's my life,
you know. it's real direct. i'm not quite sure everything i meant by it,
but it's kind of a tortured love song. it's literal, and most people know
what it's about i mean, don't print who it is. she knows it. but, i mean,
you can say i'm gay 'til the cows come home...

so are you going to be on the cover of people magazine with a headline
going 'yes, i'm gay!' next?

(laughs) "uhh nah but it's a breakup song, and it's also a love song. it's
a 'don't let go' song, that's what i'd call it, and it's sad. but it wasn't
supposed to be as sad as it is. it's kind of a drag."


[quoted in big letters]
i think they should legalize pot.
i really do.
i think it's really stupid that they haven't.


are you a creationist or a darwinist?

"i don't know um, i think i'm a darwinist to a degree but i think there's
some holes in that, too. obviously. i mean, we don't know everything i
don't believe in a literal interpretation of genesis. at all it's
impossible and i don't believe it. i believe in this overall holistic
vision of how people were trying to explain how we came, and how we
discovered knowledge about ourselves, and discovered knowledge about
creation, and how we were redeemed at one time or another. revelations, and
redemptions, and different cycles of life. so, i don't know."

what do you think should be taught in schools?

"i think they should teach it all. oh yeah, i think you should learn as
many different perspectives as possible about things. even though, as a
young person,school, for instance, i think it's probably hard to grasp that
many ideas, and people say kids need boundaries, and they need direction. i
don't believe that. i believe in offering all of it up, and maybe you're
gonna confuse somebody for awhile, but they'll figure it out later."

what sort of religious teaching did you have growing up?

"i was brought up as a methodist, and have a couple uncles that are
ministers, and my granddad was [a minister], and we went to church every
sunday, and i was in the youth group, and sunday school, did everything. i
went to decatur methodist, and it was a very pragmatic sort of church. we
had a couple of ministers that i didn't agree with about anything, and then
we had a couple that, they'd read philosophy during the sermon, and quote
really cool people, and i was like, 'wow, this is so radical!' it was never
that idea of fundamentalism i was initiated into the idea of asking
questions early on. but i'm not a christian. i have a relationship with
jesus, but it's my own, and it's not a christian one.  jesus is one part of
everything i believe. you know, christianity imposes the idea that 'this is
the only way to salvation,' and i don't believe it. i'm more of a pagan.
i'm a pagan for jesus!"

why did choose to use smoke as you backing band on "hey kind friend"?

"i love smoke! it's like love walking into the room. i wrote that song
after traveling around a little bit. these last couple years i'm kind of a
recluse but i went on the road for this song, to run away a little bit from
things. and it's just a journey song. and i felt very hobo-like when i was
going through these experiences, and kind of like a vagabond without a
home. so, smoke was my ideal band."

i kind of expected it to sound more like smoke than it
does.

"yeah, i did, too. but it's funny, 'cause to me, it sounds like smoke,
'cause i know what it sounded like before, before we did it with them. i
think the thing
that people don't understand is what great musicians those guys are. it's
not like they had to make it their song, you know. like, some bands we play
with, they can't adapt - it's gotta be their way, or it can't happen. but
with them, it's not like that. they were really gracious and wanted to do
the song in the way that the song was, even though i didn't care one way or
the other. but in the end i was really glad. i wanted a little more
benjamin in it, but that was a particular day, and it's hit or miss."

have you ever done a bunch of drugs?

"a bunch? (laughs) well, i've done my share, but it's relative, isn't it?
for me, uh, no, probably not as much as i could. (laughs) my issue with
drugs now is, you don't know what you're getting ever, and the best things
that are natural and organic aren't available. it's a drag."

do you think they should be legalized?

"oh, i definitely think they should legalize pot. and i think they should
legalize opiates in general that come from a natural form. i don't think
they should legalize coke. or heroin. i just think they're evil. i think
cocaine, well, it's a drug of privilege, for one thing, but i don't know,
for some reason, i draw the line, as far as legalization goes, at that. i
don't know why. it might be some weird thing in my own psyche about what i
think is a good
drug, and what isn't a good drug. but i think they should legalize pot. i
really do. i think it's really stupid that they haven't. and hash, and
probably opium in it's purest form. it's just, all these things when they
start boiling stuff down, and changing it, and doing this and that, and it
takes time, and they make a lot of money off it, something's wrong with
that, to me."

if pot was legal, don't you think it would be totally regulated by the
government, and diluted, and additives put into it?

"not if you grew it at your own home, though. i mean, that's an issue. if
they legalize it, does it become another tobacco industry? which is
complete bullshit, we all know. and if that was gonna happen, i would be
against it. i almost think, legalize it, but don't make it something that's
allowed to be sold, as far as big corporations go. make it something that
you can grow in your backyard. i don't know. put something in [the law] to
keep it from becoming a corporate international company."

that's kind of hard to do if something's legal. if it's legal, shouldn't
anyone be allowed to buy or sell it?

"yeah, but 'exxon marijuana'?"

but who's to say they shouldn't be allowed to sell it if they want, if it's
legal?

"i don't know. these are good questions. that's probably why i'm not on the
city council or anything."

what inspired 'scooter boys'?

"well, it's sort of a personal song that turned into a political song, you
know. imperialism, and such we did a lot of stuff in the last couple of
years on indigenous rights, in north america, and in mexico i think a lot
ofpeople in the us don't think about the fact that central and south
america having similar situations with colonialism, etc. you may be a
spanish-speaking south american person, but you could be someone who is a
colonizer just as easily as, you know, in north america, we, the white
people, are colonizers. so it's kind of like the same dynamics, almost down
there. it's interesting to recognize the patterns, because it presents
itself to you, i think, when you're becoming politicized you
recognize what's driving them is greed. and money. and the power structure of
corporations is what's driving them at this point. and so, i think in that
song i was trying to say, look, i'm a person from a blue blood, i come from
privilege, and i'm just as bad as the next person. i reap the benefits of
what we've done to these people"

but you feel guilty about it?

"i don't feel guilty. i feel like it's a fact that i have a legacy of
destruction in my bloodline, basically. but it doesn't mean that you have
to continue it. i mean, we've benefited from it. we have all these
resources at our fingertips, and we have wealth and shelter and food and
everything you can imagine, and it's like, recognize that you're benefiting
from something, but don't let it continue, i think is what i'm saying. i
think the song is really attacking the idea of the raping of the land for
resources. stealing from the best. we all think we're the wisest and the
best, and that the corporations and the profits and all this stuff is
progress,that it's the best way to go, but it's not, necessarily. there's a
lot to be said for the things we leave behind, and the things that we don't
understand anymore in our traditions."

have you ever thought of running for any sort of public office?

"emily talks about it, but i don't know. part of me feels like working
within that system would be good, and part of me feels like i'm better off
organizing on a different level. and lobbying the people that are on the
council and stuff, instead of actually being one of them. but politics is
very important to me. but the political structure is probably not one that
i'd be very good at, 'cause i'm
sort of anti-authority, and i have a problem with rules, and i think i
might work best outside of that. but i'm gonna stay involved. i mean, i'm
only gonna get more involved as time goes on, i'm sure...we'll just vote
for emily!"

i watched ellen's show last night, and think i've seen the demise of that
show. it will continue to make all the steretypical jokes about gays and
lesbians coming out to all sorts of stereotypical reactions. as i was
sitting there watching, i was calling out what would happen -- "walk out,
dad!" and he did, etc.

ellen's show will become increasingly stereotypical and increasingly far
from reality of gay and lesbian lifestyles.

it's sad, really, since ellen's show was pretty good. in taking up the
standard, she's condemned herself to a genre of jokes that will soon dry
up. in the past, ellen's show was widely humorous and dealt with many
topics. now, it will be reduced to a curiosity... "let's tune in to see
what the lesbian is up to!"...

so is it just me, or is the cornet solo from "hey kind friend" actually the
hymn "this is my father's world"?  the first verse is something like:

"this is my father's world,
and to my list'ning ears
all nature sings, and 'round me rings
the music of the spheres."

it would kinda fit with the feel of the song -- "ain't no use in explaining
the scenery" (or something like that), she says, which kind of fits with the
sentiment of the hymn.  somebody confirm this so i'll know i'm not
experiencing auditory hallucinations.

on the contrary.  i think that ellen will continue to use the
stereotypical jokes for a little while; i think it helps espcially
heterosexuals to understand her point of view.

but, i also think that the plot will move on.  i think abc realizes that
this whole same thing will get old fast, but, nonetheless, they will
have to deal with it for a little while.  i have every confidence in
ellen that the plot will move on.

on the same note, i loved in last night's episode how paige was so
distressed that one ever listened to her anymore!  i think that that is
the direction the show will head.....

let's hope at least!

- i totally agree with this... at the sweat lodges, one says "all
my relations" before entering and when leaving.  i believe it's a
way of aknowledging those you love and hate, and the lodge helps you
gain perspective.

now now, i think this is very unfair...ellen couldn't just come out of the
closet without addressing many of the problems that gay people have when
they do it. this doesn't mean that her entire show for the rest of her
career is going to be stereotypical, and besides, it's only stereotypical
for those who know what gays go through in the first place.  there are
many straight people who have never given any of these topics much thought
or have never had to deal with a gay child coming out to them who are
seeing for the first time what it's like.
   relax! give ellen a break. i'm glad someone is finally doing what she's
doing. it's about time!!!!

i agree that many of the jokes and reactions were stereotypical; however, i
don't think this is a bad thing at all.  the stereotypical responses are
common enough that making them well known can be helpful in a way.  actually,
i felt some sympathy for the dad in that it was made obvious that the source
of his anger was from grief over the loss of his own dreams of stereotypical
fatherhood and grandfatherhood.  of course, he "came around" in a very short
time - that is the unrealistic part.

the other dad in the group who said ellen was "sick" is also the kind of
thing that has to be dealt with.  again, although stereotypical, that kind of
behavior is very real.

just one more particular example - i would hate to count how many times i
have been asked what do two women do in bed?  philosopher claudia card has
even bothered to address the question "what constitutes doing it?"

as far as i am concerned, so many of these initial questions were addressed
in one short show, that i can't imagine that the thread will continue
indefinitely.

okay since i (unwittingly) started a volume of mail about the ig theme, i
thought i may as well volunteer to help those who are busy constructing
this theme. others who simply can't wait, can fiddle with things on their
own with the help of shareware available on the net. the programs that are
helpful are :

1. graphics workshop. (downloadable from www.mindworkshop.com ) . this
shareware program  translates various art files into bmp, jpg, and other
popular graphics forms. supports at least 20 different formats.

2. microangelo which is an icon-creator (download at www.mindmaster.com )
that takes any picture and converts it into an icon. so you could take the
hammer picture for example and save it as an icon that you could use to
represent "your computer".


3. a quick yahoo search will reveal several shareware programs that convert
ordinary pictures into screen savers. one you might try is amazing jpeg
screen saver-16 bit, available for download at http://www.download.com/p
c/result/download/0,21,0-15172,00.html  {probably an easier way is to go to
www.download.com and search for 'create screen savers').

4. you can also find several places that offer free downloads of cursors
and icons, and most musical themed ones will have guitars and such. try
http://www.shareware.com  and search for animated cursors. anicurs2.zip is
pretty good.


5. windows95 has good instructions on how to save all these together as
themes.

6. share your amazing finds with the rest of us. enjoy!

you're right.  there are very few real flames here.  just a lot of
sensitive people who get their dander up when things aren't just *so* on
the ig list.  this list takes its community spirit very seriously.  it is
in many ways a very homogeneous bunch, often very defensive about
differences in opinions or personalities.  thus, anything but shiny happy
people (obatlreference) tend to rock the boat, even while the waters are
generally calm.

stereotypes are based on facts, so of course people are going to fit

   also, i've been asked that same "what do two women do in bed together"

let me guess, drew....you're straight.  what was portrayed on ellen last\
week and this week were very very accurate protrayls of the experiences
of many gays and lesbians.  i came out to my parents at our house.
noone walked out, but the whole blame and "i dont want to know" thing
happened.  coming out to poeple close to us is a minefield and
you often dont know what step wil blow up in your face.  what happend
\with ellen's dad was not at all out of step with reality.  in fact,
in some ways it is a reverse mirror of what heppend in ellen's real
life..her parents asked her to move out of their house.

yeah, let's.  and let's see that lesbians live everyday lives just
as everyone else does and dispel those nasty myths about being creepy
people based only on sexuality.

if you ask me, though, i think that "ellen" using stereotypes is a positive
thing.  think about it:  it's not only using stereotypes, it's making fun of
them.  it's like saying to the homophobic "community":  "do you see how
ridiculous these stereotypes are?"  "can't you see how silly you're being?"

that's, at least, how i see it.

what kind of comment is that?! let's say that i said:
"let me guess, amy... you're overweight."
is that fair? just because you might be gay does not mean that you have
access to secrets that straights don't. geez.

my sexuality has precious little to do with my observations. i, too, know
the minefield of coming out, but that doesn't change my feelings about
ellen's show becoming an insipid and 'one-joke' show.

in fact, i would think that our homosexual community would be most vocal
about this. sure, it is truly great that she came out on public tv, but
why not make her deal with situations that are less stereotypical and more
realistic so that the world at large can see g/l as more than 2
dimenensional cutouts?

one of the best emails i've gotten about this topic was from someone who
said something like, 'sure, they're stereotypes. but only folks in the g/l
community will understand, since many others haven't had to deal with it
before.' (not a quote)

i think that is a good goal, albeit a lofty one for a measley sitcom. i
also don't think that ellen's show will work toward those goals.

of couse, i may be wrong. if so, i've got a great recipe for crow!

teddi... there is some truth to what you're saying, but don't forget that
in addition to stereotypes showing what you mentioned, they also serve to
_further_ those stereotypes.

didn't you feel at all manipulated by the short-time handling of this
sensative issue? what if ellen had, instead of tying everything up into a
neat little package at the end of the show, let dad be angry/upset for a
couple of episodes? they dealt in 22 minutes with something that my family
is still dealing with.

well, i suppose i agree with you on one count -- if they keep going at
this clip through all sorts of life-affecting issues, they're going to
flat run out of things to deal with!

subject:      sots review

i'm prolly gonna get flamed for this, but....
has to share this "review" with all of you, so i wouldn't be alone in my
annoyed-ness. i know, i know, it's just one man's opinion, and i shouldn't let
it get to me.....but it did. i actually sputtered while reading it aloud to
someone. i think once i post it, i'll get it out my system. so thank you in
advance for putting up with it.  :)
btw, this review was in "the onion," a satirical (but with serious av review
stuff) newsweekly based here in madison.

indigo girls
shaming of the sun
(epic)
rumors of an indigo girls breakup have circulated in recent months, due in
large part to the several years it took for the duo to record a follow-up to
the well-received swamp ophelia. (the release of a two-disc live album in 1995
didn't help; it smacked of contract fulfillment.) but shaming of the sun is
finally out, and it's as scattershot a recording as the band has ever made:
there's a crowd-pleasing surefire hit ("get out the map"), a song that
actually employs programmed beats and samples ("shed your skin"), and tracks
that address everything from immigrant-bashing ("shame on you") to
church-burning ("leeds") to colonialism ("scooter boys"). there's even "it's
alright," a "yep, we're gay" song for those who hadn't figured it out already.
shaming of the sun gets increasingly aimless and heavy-handed as it
progresses: by the time you get to musically cluttered material like "cut it
out" and "burn all the letters," you'll long for the days when indigo girls
just made simple, emotionally resonant records that didn't collapse under the
weight of their ambitions. --stephen thompson

subject:      crayola trivia, and a question
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
content-transfer-encoding: 7bit

i was visiting the crayola site in an attempt to find out the html codes
for red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.  no such luck
-- can anyone help me out?  (i'm trying to add a little color to the
color me indigo logo.)  crayola doesn't even seem to *make* indigo
crayons...unless anyone can prove me wrong here i think it's about time
for a protest.  heck, it's not like it's an unusual color -- it's part of
the friggin rainbow!

anyway, i found this trivia question and thought it might interest some
of you:

#4. audio markers?

      question: we don't usually recommend coloring on your audio compact
discs. but some music fans say they use markers on their cds all the
      time. can you guess why?

      answer: music fans use markers to "tweak" their compact discs by
drawing a line around the outer edge of discs to increase sound quality. the
      marker line reportedly refracts the laser beam to produce a deeper,
richer sound. enthusiasts say green markers work best.

i would like to commment on the whole ellen thing.
first of all, i believe that last night's show, though solved fast, was an
accurate portrayal of many gay/lesbian's and their experiences with their
parents. i think that she should live up to the "stereotypes" for a while.
i mean they are the thruth as for as coming out to people and all: i know
that when i first came out that was the majority of my life, but now it is
just a little part of it...i think we will see that next season etc..with
ellen's character.
remeber this famous quote: if you can't laugh at yourself you'll cry your
eyes out!---??????

look drew, relax...and yes, being gay does let us in on some secrets that
other non-gay people might not know...we do have a community that is,
while not closed to straights, pretty much all gay, that many of use as a
support system.  so actually, amy was right...

um...i feel pretty qualified to say that gay stereotypes, some of them,
anyway, are based on fact...it's true. however, a small portion of our
community fits those stereotypes. i don't dare speculate on any group i'm
not part of though.
  another thing--no matter how ellen portrays a lesbian, a large group of
people will be displeased and think that she should do it a different way.
wanna know what? they should just go and do their own version!!!

geez is right.....<shakes head>  drew dear.....in the words of mr. spock,
your statement is highly illogical.  if you're going to draw an analogy,
draw one.  but what you said does not make sense to me, and quite frankly
(imho) borders on being nasty....and i'm sure you'll agree there's no room
for nastiness on this list.  maybe i lost something in between the lines,
but you want to explain how an analogy is drawn between the statements "let
me guess, drew....you're straight" and "let me guess, amy... you're
overweight" when you are both talking about the acuracy of protrayls of the
experiences of a lot of g/l people?  just doesn't follow.  so i challenge
you....enlighten me.

hello! the american public doesn't have that kind of attention span.  i
think that considering that many people might stop watching ellen, or
taking into consideration that the tv season is almost over, ellen made a
wise choice!

hi guys, 'tis me, i've resubscribed. i was originally sending this to

thought i'd send it to the list.


audrey, your post was the first i received when i resubscribed.. *grin*
so feel special.

in the back of my javascript book, they have the html hex values for just
about every color. but mind you, these sometimes aren't very pretty. just
normal red, blue, yellow, etc, can get loud at times. for example, when
you go to a page with no set color for links, your browser uses the
default. think about it those links.. they're not the prettiest colors in
the world, and that's what most of these look like. i usually try to find
some variant that a little more muted.


here are the ones audrey asked for anyway:

red=ff0000

orange=ffa500

yellow=ffff00

green=008000

blue=0000ff

indigo=4b0082

violet=ee82ee


if anyone wants any more, just email me: raine@area51.homecom.com


just so you know, most browsers are capable of recognizing words
_<bold>and</bold>_ hex codes. if you don't know the hex code for
something, try the word and see if it works. the main two browsers,
netscape and internet explorer do recognize the words, prodigy/aol/others
i'm not sure about. the colors are just about any that you can think of,
and you can preface them with 'light' 'medium' and 'dark'.

example: color=darkturquoise, color=mediumslateblue,
color=lightcornflowerblue  ... you get the point.


here's my favorite color site i use when i'm picking colors:

http://www.biola.edu/cgi-bin/colorpro/colorpro.cgi


you just click on the round color palette, wait for it to reload, and
voila it shows you the color you picked. careful though, sometimes you
think a certain color will look good as text when you see it as a
background and it doesn't work as well.


you can also do a search on 'color' or 'background' or 'palette' and see
what other ones turn up.


also, a lot of people don't realize that they can do their own hex
codes.. you have  to have photoshop, or paintshop pro, or anything that
gives you the rgb colors, and a scientific calculator(the calculator that
comes with windows 95 can be set to scientific - just start it up, go to
'view' set to 'scientific').


say your color is r-30 g-88 b-128

punch 30 into your scientific calculator, then hit the 'hex' button.

30 becomes 1e, 88 becomes 58, 128 becomes 80

so your html hex color code is color=#1e5880

pretty simple.


wow, i'm just a plethora of information today. comes of being bored at

being gay in a largely homophobic culture does indeed mean that you have
access to experiences that straights don't (...geez...) like, for
example, coming out...the continual, never-ending process of coming
out which lasts your whole life or at least as long as you are in a
position to meet people who immediately assume you're straight...
and coming out to your parents is just a very surreal experience no
matter how you handle it.

i thought that the way it was handled on ellen was great.  if the
responses of the characters seemed stereotypical i think that it is
because in the situations depicted people behave in very predictable
ways when confronted with this situation in real life.

mime-version: 1.0

well, i just had to add my $.03 worth. i saw ellen last night and quite
frankly i loved the show. it brought tears to my eyes and a cheer from
my mouth. sure they wrapped everything up nice and neat in 22 minutes.
and that is absolutely not real. but, after all, this is just a
television show, and while we may expect former vice president dan
quayle to confuse television characters with real life, the rest of us
should know better!

seriously though, i am just grateful and ecstatic that ellen degeneres
had the courage to do what she did and that abc stood by her. as far as
stereotypes, sitcoms have always used generalized characters. i think
that by generalizing characters and their actions/reactions the writers
can create a character/situation that more viewers will be able to
identify with. perhaps the last two coming out episodes do not
necessarily reflect the "gay/lesbian" lifestyle, as someone commented,
but i have yet to see a sitcom that really portrayed a real "life
style". i mean does home improvement accurately depict the "cable tv
host lifestyle"? i think not. in reality jill would have dumped that
moron years ago! did giligans island acurately portray the "stranded on
a desert isle" lifestyle? not! hey, they would have gotten of that
damned island in 7 months had the others simply killed gilligan in his
sleep! ok, i'm getting silly here. my point, and i do have one, (sorry i
couldn't resist) is that ellen is a ficticious 1/2 hour television
comedy, trying to deal with something that it takes some real people 30
or 40 years ((or never) to deal with. perhaps those who have already
dealt with a similar instance in their own lives would like for the show
to be more "realistic", but my hope is that the show is reaching those
who haven't dealt with the issues surronding homosexuality, and that it
is teaching them something about the issues in a way that they can
understand and deal with.

perhaps her father walking out of the restaruant was predictable, but i
would wager that a similar occurance has happened to more than 1 person
coming out to their parents. i think overall ellen has handled this
issue in a way that is the least threatening to those who are
unaccostomed to dealing with the issues involved, while still giving all
of us something to consider.

i guess overall i just keep remember that this is just a sitcom. it's
not a documentary or a movie, or an hour long drama or night time soap.
it's just a sitcom. a sitcom trying to handle a complex and emotionally
charged issue, and imho doing it very well.

personally i believe that after a couple of episodes of featuring ellen
morgan's trials and tribulations over coming out, the show will return
to being your general sitcom and her sexuality will be no more an issue
than any other television character's sexuality.

of course i could be wrong and next week tune in and it will just be
ellen standing there saying "these two lesbians walk into a bar..."

mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

i am going to delurk here for a moment.  i believe that ellen did a fine
job with both of the episodes so far.  tv sitcoms only give you a half
hour.  i admire ellen for taking on the monumental task she has in this
framework.

when i came out to my parents, i also heard all the exact same questions
and concerns.  i told them at a dinner, my 23rd birthday dinner.  we ate
a large dinner, and then they pretty much asked me if there was any
romantic interest in my life.  we had been discussing my sister living
with her boyfriend and it was a natural segue. i told them i was gay,and
while answering their questions and assuaging their fears, proceeded to
eat 1/4 of a large chiffon cake with ice cream and strawberries.  midway
a guy i used to date called.  i arranged to have a drink with him after
dinner, and got off the phone to my mother's question of "what about
charlie, he's a nice boy?".  i explained how he had been supportive of my
decision.  my parents reassured me they loved me and i went off to have a
drink with charlie.  i must have been in a daze, cause at the bar, i ate
almost all of a dinner size appetizer before i realized that i had been
eating non-stop for about 3 hours! :-)

most of my coming out experiences have been good.  i feel fortunate for
that.  i truly feel that what ellen is doing is the closest i will ever
come to seeing my life on tv.  that is very moving to me.  i came out
about 19 years ago and have seen quite a bit of change.  19 years ago, i
could not have even imagined that there would be such a show as ellen has
done.  i bet that, at one time, ellen never would have imagined herself
there either.  it was a different world.  we can be critical of the way
things are done, but i think that we need to recognize the ground that
has been taken.  there would not be such a backlash from the right if
there had not been so much ground that has been taken.

maybe ellen is done from a woman's viewpoint about what is important.
that might not appeal to some people (read some men).  too bad.  change
the channel.

not many people would put their career on the line for their beliefs. i
applaud ellen and am proud of her.

i am not sorry to use bandwidth.  i get tired of reading whining like
drew's though.  i also get tired of people groveling and apologizing when
they write something that is important to them.  it wastes more bandwidth
to grovel than to just get on with it.  its like saying i apologize for
existing.  i know that this the ig list, and the content should stay
focused there, but sometimes we just need to be human and communicate at
that level.

my 2 pfennige,  sue

um, huh?  i have no idea where this totally random comment comes from.
my comment is a response to the idea that you seemed to think that
dad's walking out on ellen was not a realisitc occurence.  i doubt you'll
ever hear a story about dad walking out on a child who annoucnes
s/he is striaght.  like joni said, if you ar going to make an analogy,
try to keep to something pertinent to the discussion at hand.

as for secrets, it's a "secret" if someone else doesnt know about it.
a lot of straights would be clueless about signals that a lot of
gays use to find each other.  so, yeah, my being a lesbian does
mean that there would be times when i would pick up on something which
might let me id anotehr gay peson, a clue which many straights wouldnt
see.  no, there is so secret decoder ring.  in somw ways, it's called
survival, being able to find others like us so we feel less isolated.
this sort of thing is also affectionately known as gaydar.

what tv character *isnt* a 2 dimensional cut out?  we have to start
somewhere and have a gay presence on tv so that we are at least seen
as being real.  i dont see any male actors stepping up to the plate.
at least *someone* did.  what the gay community needs to be vocal about\
is to remind people that ellen is but one example of life as a gay
person, jsut as "mad about you" is one example of straight people.  we
dont ask "mad about you" to represent all straights, and likewiuse we
cannot expect ellen to be "everything" to gays.

> i think that is a good goal, albeit a lofty one for a measley sitcom. i
> also don't think that ellen's show will work toward those goals.

there have been all of 2 episodes directly dealing with this topic.
i thnk it;s a bit hasty to project what will happen on the show.

ok.

there is just wayyyyy to much flame bait out here now.

whoever said gay people have access to "secrets" that other
people don't is a, well this is a family mail list right?

by perpetuating such ridiculous comments you are totally
going against the whole point made that gay people live
"normal" lives just like everyone else.  they go to
work, they come home, they watch tv, and hopefully if
hi wakes up, will be able to marry too.  in fact, to
claim to be part of some "secret" organization you
further divide yourself from the society that is
hopefully finally learning to not be such retards
when it comes to a person's sexuality.  this is
totally the point of ellen's toaster joke.  there
is no secret society!!!!  i can see it now,
"i'm a card carrying..."

whomever made the point about the difference being
"experience", kudos, kudos, kudos.

gay people experience different things in bed
than straight people.  big f deal.  straight
people experience different things than other
straight people depending on who they're with.
if this is a revalation to anyone...


everyone is different.  (duh!)  i like motorcycles.
i don't stand around telling people "it's a motorcycle
thing, you car people wouldn't understand"  some
like motss, some like motos.  by creating "secretive"
(which some would interpret as elitist, see "fraternity")
distinctions between the two, you only widen the
gap.

double kudos, to the point made that we're talking
about a sitcom here, not a documentary or (and i
use this term loosely) a news program.

flame off.

        let me guess, i'm (insert here), right?

hey everyone!

i'm delurking for the second time in 2 days to share a joyous moment with
you!  i know to some, hearing indigo girls on the radio is no big deal...but
for us here in nowhere, wisconsin, it never happens!  until today that is!
i went into a coworker's office to ask her a question and she had a top 40
radio station on (i know you can guess what's coming, but i'm going to say
it anyway!) and i heard "...road block trippin' in the middle of the night
up in gainesville town..." and almost started crying! i had to sit down!  i
then called the radio station to thank them for playing soy, and the dj said
"yea that's a great song, isn't it?  everyone at the radio station loves it.
i don't think i've ever played indigo girls before."  and i replied, "no,
you certainly haven't!"   anyway!  thanks for listening - i know you can all
relate to my excitement about this momentous occasion in nw wisconsin history!

mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

i've been reading through the posts regarding ellen last night and i came
across a comment from drew that i feel the need to comment on.  i odn't
want to harp, but i feel you miss what is at the heart of sexuality.
drew said:

my sexuality has precious little to do with my observations.

now, this may sound horrible, but in saying this i must assume that you
are staright.  and i don't say this to be condescending or stereotypical
in any way.  it is just that when you are queer and you live in a
heterosexist society such as this one, your sexuality becomes thelens
through which you see the world.  if your sexuality has little to do with
your observations it is probably because you are not forced to
acknowledge it.  when i look around at magazine ads, at movies, and even
at tv i do not see myself reflected in popular culture.  all over i see
men and women holding hands and kissing, i see marriage for straights
only, even in lipstick commercials the models say, "won't kiss off on
him."  if i were straight i would probably never notice this, but after
awhile i begin to feel invisible.  it's like i don't even exist.  no,
gays don't have access to secrets, but our difference had led us through
moments straights will never know.

second, and still related, being straight one never has to face the fact
that they are "different", one is never called "perverted" or
"disgusting" just for being in love.  as soon as a person comes out they
cease to be a person in the eyes of society, and many times in the eyes
of their family and friends as well.  they become the label "gay", just a
ellen has become to many people, "the lesbian".  she is much more than
that, but people are fascinated as one person saidin a post, "to see what
the lesbian is up to."  if she's reading a book they think, "she chose
that book because she is a lesbian", if she is wearing boots it is
"because she is a lesbian."  now, i'm not saying that everyone feels this
way,  but that is how the greater whole of society views us queers, i
know, i've experienced it.

there is no "community spirit" here.  i've been reading the list for
some time the prevailing spirit seems to be based on control. people
are simply not allowed to have a dissenting opinion. its interesting
that this list has around 1000 subscribers but the "approved" subjects
and attitudes seem to be closely monitored by what i characterize as a
small group of  immature mili-dykes.  (note to all immature militant
dykes-i will simply delete flames and not respond). we're all here
because we like the ig but god help the poor sob that unknowingly
writes something politically incorrect.

subject:      color you thanks, and tour dates, and web stuff
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
content-transfer-encoding: 7bit

just wanted to thank everyone who responded to my crayola post earlier
today and helped me find a hex color for indigo.  the color me indigo logo
now has color!  i also lightened the background a bit, so if you're bored
take a look and tell me if it works for you or not.  eventually i hope to
find (or make) a muted grey pattern for it, but nothing i've seen so far
is quite muted enough for my taste.  i also expect to add an "open in
new window" option for *all* external links within the next month or
two.

the site has gotten over 2000 hits since early march...i'm assuming most
of them are from all of you and i wanted to say thanks.  it's nice to
know that one of my creations is actually useful and helpful for other
people.  if there's anything you'd like to see added or expanded or
changed, or any sites which you think should be featured, please let me
know.  and i know some of you listees have web sites which aren't
listed--your site does not have to have igc to be included, so if you
want in just take a look at the "kind friends" section for a model and
send me your url, name, email addy, nickname (if any), and a description
(optional), and i'll add you.

i found some pretty neat pages about colors and backgrounds in my quest
today--eventually i'll put some annotated links up on my site but you can
get to most of them through tina's (linked from the "kind friends" section
of color me indigo).

there have been a bunch of posts lately asking about tour dates...the list
on the sony/epic ig site is the most official, but the list in deb
reiser's shaming of the sun tour archives (linked from the "mapping"
section of color me indigo) includes sale dates, in addition to being
quite comprehensive and having a much funkier design.

take care,
audrey

wow... what is the old saying about "assuming"... when you assume you make
an ass out of "u" and "me"? it's in full effect here, maurissa!

i don't believe, nor have i ever felt, that my sexuality is the 'lens
through which i see the world', anymore than my decision to be a dog
person is the lens through which i see the world. i see that sort of
mentality as something kinda paranoid, and frankly, comical... have you
ever seen seinfeld with uncle leo? anytime something goes wrong for uncle
leo (his toast is overdone, his pants hemmed too long, etc.) it's due to
anti-semitism. this cracks me up, and seems to me to be the same kind of
logic you're presenting here.

my sexuality is just a _part_ of who i am, and is nowhere near the whole
'lens'. does my sexual preference affect my life
in general? perhaps a little, but not much. when i'm working, i'm not
thinking as a gay male. when i'm biking, playing frisbee, or walking
stanley the wonder dog (tm), it's not as a gay male. i'm just _me_. i'm
quite comfortable with who i am, so i do not feel the need to place my
sexual preference out there as a shield against my other insecurities ("i
didn't get the job because i'm gay" instead of "i blew that interview. i
don't think i'll get the job.")

i once had an employee that was troublesome. he was in my office, and
i told him i thought he was being an asshole. his response? "you're only
saying that because you're white and i'm black." my response to that? i
said, "no, race has nothing to do with it. the fact that you're being an
asshole is the the basis for the comment." i feel that if people are
comfortable with who/what they are, they don't need to carry a banner to
hide behind. perhaps you don't think that way -- it's cool. respect that
other people don't think as you do.

i, too, used to think that straights had it much easier that i do, but
have since arrived at a different place -- we all have our challenges,
straight, gay, black, white, whatever. each person's life is hard. the
fact that her life is hard in a different way than your life is
immaterial. it's still hard.

rather than adopting a "poor pitiful me" attitude, i go out and each and
every day define for people what it is to be a hardworking, thoughtful,
outspoken, person. i do what i can, and people take away what they can.
that's what i can do. i will not be complacent. (hi lorinda!)

hey all,
this is not in order, but...1)in sb amy sounds a lot like the guy from
midnight oil when she sings "zapata reading poetry in his grave" and "well
they need more." 2)how do you interpret "oh how the mighty fall" in dgtgag?
d'ya think amy's "the mighty" or the person the song's written to?  i'm
fairly obsessed w/this song, as i have been hanging out in withoutyouness
(withoutyouland?)for a while. but now that there's new ig music, "it's alright."

...which reminds me of the first time i saw the girls on the ig tour in 89.
i had just gone through a rough breakup, singing prince of darkness and
blood and fire all the way. the girls played club nu (small club in miami,
fl) and afterwards i was trying to tell emily how much their music had
helped me.  i was mumbling something inarticulate about how they write it
for one reason, but then it goes out and becomes the soundtrack to other
people's lives.  i started to cry, and she started to cry, and she hugged me
(a real hug, not one of those little "pat, pat, please stop now" hugs) and
asked if "it's alright now." she pulled amy over, and basically they were,
and of course, are, some of the warmest people i've ever encountered. :-) my
ig flashback of the day.
peace,
lisa

of course, the world doesn't look at you, drew the "dog person" and make
assumptions about you; like you *must* be perverted or degenerate etc etc
etc, because you're a "dog person". your choice of dog over cat ( or horse
etc etc etc ) is one that is accepted. no one asks you to defend that
choice,; it is an accepted difference or preference. however, the world
*does* view gay persons in a very differnt light, thereby making most of us
feel a need to defend + define ourselves through our sexuality. we are not
allowed to "just be" as our heterosexual counterparts are free to do. it
would be wonderful to feel as free as you seem to feel, and i would gladly
live that way... but the rest of the world just aint ready to let us... they
view us through a certain "lens"... and so we can't feel that our choice of
female over male or visa versa is a given... accepted... a minor detail: we
have it shoved in our face as something that is *so* differnt; and therefor
we too are forced to look at the world around us through the lens of our
sexuality; reminded that we are differnt, and that others view us as such...
sigh...
peace + pondering... kim

well,
i guess i'm a lurker most of the time and when i do write, i'm usually
fairly concise, so this letter will be uncharacteristic of me.  however,
since it is gonna be my last post, temporarily i hope (finals are a drag),
i'm gonna make the most of it.  first and foremost, i wanna say you people
are probably the coolest collection of people i have ever come across (at
least when you stay on the subject).  i have truly enjoyed reading most of
the posts and seeing the differences that abound when you group 1000+
people on to a list like this.  thank you to everyone who took pity on a
newbie with nothing to trade and sent me bootlegs.  a mighty thanks goes
out to all the galveston party-people (da chickenman rules!) who rocked the
beach hiz-ouse!!  also, i just have to say thanks to deb reiser for her
badass web page which i visit at least ten times a day to see if maybe
she's found out when the dallas tickets go on sale :)
now i'm just gonna throw in my $.02 about the whole ellen thing that's
raging here now.  two words--private email.  the last few posts responding
to drew have been addressing drew.  why are they coming to the list?  the
only reason i can think of is that people responding are looking for a
little self-glorification, or maybe a few internet high-fives.  it's
ridiculous and futile.  in all of drew's posts i have not seen anything
that would make me think that anyone here is going to change his mind.  he
has his opinion, i have my opinion (not on this subject, i haven't watched
ellen in about a year--aaaahhh, have i sinned?!?), everyone has their own
opinion.  if you guys want to explain to drew how your sexuality is a
"lens" do it without involving everyone on the list.  that's just plain
uncool, but that's my opinion :)
well that's all i have to say about that.  if any of you folks are going to
be at the may 30 philly show or planning to be at the dallas show drop me a
line (as long as it is before about 4 pm tomorrow i should get it) maybe we
can get together.  for everyone i'm making boots for (taurus branch of the
unh boot) i will have those out to you.  i just got my copy yesterday so i
won't be able to start sending until next week, plus my recording device
has been packed up and sits in tulsa right now so...just so you know.
well, i guess that's it.  take it easy everyone and i hope to see those of
you i've met before again and the rest of you for the first time.
just remember no matter what happens: it's alright.
keep it groovy,
ryan

maybe they don't usually say them in their songs, but i know that
i've heard them say expletives in concert when they've messed
up, and then the audience usually cracks up.  (hey, lots of folks
think it's funny when emily says, "oh s#%t.")  i'm pretty much
immune to being offended by hearing such words, not that i'm
defending their common use, but living near boston can have
that effect on you.  to think i was in junior high before i dared to
say "shut up"!  (ah, the sweet innocence of growing up in new
hampshire in the '70's).

i apologize in advance for the length and for  adding another ellen post to
the ig list. but i had to.

by perpetuating such ridiculous comments you are totally
going against the whole point made that gay people live
"normal" lives just like everyone else.  they go to
work, they come home, they watch tv, and hopefully if
hi wakes up, will be able to marry too.  in fact, to
claim to be part of some "secret" organization you
further divide yourself from the society that is
hopefully finally learning to not be such retards
when it comes to a person's sexuality.  this is
totally the point of ellen's toaster joke.  there
is no secret society!!!!  i can see it now,
"i'm a card carrying..."
>>

you're right, that is the point of toaster oven joke --- however, i don't
agree with much of the rest of what you said. no, there isn't a secret
decoder ring or a card to carry (tho i wouldn't mind). but there are
experiences-- that have nothing to do with the bedroom, by the way -- and
humor and a culture that gay people share. how many straight people do you
think got ellen's joke about "personal best?" or got the joke about peter's
traumatic coming out before kindergarten....that was hilarious. another thing
is that straights don't come out as straight, and no matter how open minded
you are you can't ever understand what that is like, anymore than i could
understand what being a man is like or being straight is like, tho i
pretended to be that for 30 years.

the point is that 98 percent of the mass media out there does not reflect my
life back to me. imagine going through your whole life hardly ever seeing a
positive straight person or relationship on tv or in a movie. imagine
everyone assuming you were gay when they first met you....because that was
the norm and expected...imagine having to make split second decisions for the
rest of your life whether to let that erroneous assumption stand and pay the
price the lie exacts on your psyche or to come out and risk rejection.

then imagine the first straight lead character coming out on tv one
night...and someone as mainstream as oprah taking part and saying good for
you, youre straight....why even your mother loves oprah and maybe now she'll
think twice about what she thinks about straight people.

that's what ellen's act of courage is all about. i've sat thru years of
straight sitcoms, loved em all from i love lucy to friends. but i tell you,
it's nice to see my life for once.

finally, i do live a normal life...i go to work. i come home. i have sunday
barbecues. but my life is different from a straight person's life. not
better. certainly not worse. but different. that's why ellen is important,
too. she's saying it's different but not alien, not perverse. it's normal but
different.

a lot of years ago, i was in a tv theory and criticism class in college.
there was a great quote in our text book: ''if it's on tv it's real. and if
it's not on tv it's not real.''

ultimately ellen makes us all a little more real in the collective american
psyche. different. but real. and she's doing a pretty good job so far.

this is not a flame, by the way. just my perspective.

now i gotta listen to the girls and polish my collection of toaster ovens.

peace.

my apologies for the total nigc of this post ... there is a situation i'm dealing with right now, and i was wondering if the lawyers and/or law students out there could help me with a question i have. it has to do with dual citizenship -- could anyone tell me what the specific laws/rules are in the united states regarding people holding passports from more than one country? until what age can a person be an american *and* another nationality? i would be very grateful for any assistance people could give me on this matter ... thank you!

hey everyone....

so i was driving in the bronco yesterday, listing to my "best of indigo girls"
mix tape i made mysel, when it occurred to me.  i have an emily side and
an amy side, and i inadvertantly put gotm before power of two.  it seems
that those songs really tell alot of the same story.  i really saw the
connection.

gotm tells about going to places, and doing things just to wild and willful,
and loving while "our love is good and young..." and power of two sings
about getting out of town and spending time with the person you have chosen
to be with.  it is kind of interesting that these songs came in reverse
order album wise, but i thought it was kind of interesting.

all i can think, actually, when i hear them, is about my relationship with
my boyfriend.  gotm makes me think about how reckless and wild and "in love"
and infatuated we both were with one another at the beginning of our
relationship, how we would go for days on 2 or 3 hours sleep a night because
we wanted to spend every moment together.  how we would just pack up and
do whatever at a moment's notice.  now, i see our relationship more on
the power of two level.  live you lives, find time for each other when you
can, still be crazy and go when it is convenient.

anyhoo, just thought i would venture the question.....does anyone else see
any "sequel" or commonalities in any other ig songs?

well, off to move my belongings to that apartment over there!!  ;)

peace, love and ig-
karrie

ps.  tamara, you are a goddess......thanks for the boots!!!!!!!!!!!!

actually, i thought that one of the funniest, best parts of the coming

with all due respect, i disagree.

i don't know how much net experience you have, how many other mailing
lists you are on, but the ig list is truly something special.  the
level of mutual support and openess is really unparallelled.

i'm a lot of things that pass for non-pc.  i'm catholic.  i'm
pro-life, yet anti-extremist (which simply pisses _everyone_ off
because i never quite fit into one of their boxes).  i'm fiscally
conservative.  i vote independant with a slight republican leaning.  i
don't think columbus was a saint nor a demon, just a product of his
times *shrug* -- never had a problem. i do it by treating individuals
with respect, and respecting their point of view.  without an
attitude.  most people here do the same.  i get into discussions and
arguements over issues, and take them off the list when the
appropriate time comes, but these are honest disagreements and i pride
myself on not turning a debate into a series of personal
attacks. happily i say that most people here have shown me the same
courtesy.  that's a community -- we can disagree, we can discuss our
disagreements and still be friends at the end of the day. its not a
matter of content, its a matter of attitude.

there are guidelines for posting, but its to keep us on topic -- which
btw is the ig. ;)  sometimes threads pop up that shouldn't be here.
perhaps somthing was once releveant, but imho it no longer is. *shrug*
happens all the time. but its better to let these things die a natural
death than by adding to the noise by bitching about the noise!  that's
a sense of community.  that and knowing that someday _i_ will (yet
again) carry on a point/discussion past its natural life, and these
same folks will be patient with me.  this is part of a community.

we joke, we kid, we tease, we aren't always nice.  we discuss ig and
our lives.  we reach out to friends and groups in need with time,
money and music.  we share a common interest that most outside people
find pathological in intensity (oh mi gawd -- if you add up the
numbers in "1694" and also "117 you are 15" both are divisible by
five!!! [you see, we kid around a lot ;)]).  we make mistakes.  we get
defensive.  we're human.  to me this defines a community.  after all
the only community without conflict i know is the fictional "stepford"
-- and i'd hate to live there! *shiver*

                just some things to think about,

yeah, i also thought that gotm was like the sequel to power of two. i
think there are a couple others on sots that go along with previous ig
songs. i don't know if everyone will agree with me, but this is what i
thought.

subject:      posting dissenting opinions
content-transfer-encoding: 7bit

i believe that if we all stopped to answer these question before we wrote,
it may cut down on flames and wars

q. am i expressing a personal opinion which is :

1)one of vociferous dissension with what another person said (e. g., i
don't agree with you, you are out to lunch, why would anybody believe
that???)

2) judgmental (e.g., jeez louise these lesbians, damn these straight/gay
men, you must be crazy). if you must be intolerant, how about you chose to
be intolerant of intolerance?

3) sarcastic. while sarcasm between friends is usually okay, when used
between strangers who have nothing but a cyber-relationship, causes lots of
flames.

or     am i sharing facts and opinions without criticizing another person's
statement? even facts that are nigc (e.g., taping, booting, web-pages,
other musicians) are more welcome than flames i should think.

we don't have to agree, let's just agree to disagree. how hard can that be?
we have surely all learnt to do that in our personal relationships? how
about we apply it here?

sorry to be preachy but these are my opinions which i have tried to
expressed un-vociferously, non-judgmentally, and non-sarcastically.

ummm... scuse me if this subject has already been discussed to death, but
i've been off line for over a month and when i got back on line i had 268
digests waiting in my mail box to be downloaded ( oivey! ) needless to say,
my "trash that sucker" finger got a little happy ( not to mention tired )...
anyways... where was i? oh yeah...
have y'all talked about the line in soy where amy says "the only thing that
keeps us distant is that i keep fuckin up"?... if'n you have, i apologize
for this... i just wanted to say that i was dissapointed in amy for the
needless addition of this particular expletive to her lyrics. i am in no way
offended by the word... use it a lot myself, especially when my all too
wicked irish temper takes me over:-)... *but* i'm ticked that i've gotta
censor my music listening now... my ten year old daughter just loves the
girls and sings along with all my stuff, but not this one, baybee, nu uh...
not this song. i am all for freedom of speach etc, but i just don't see why
amy couldn't have said "messin" or something else, just for *me* so's i
could relax:-)... lol...

yes, but did you ever criticize rainy day records on the list before amy
herself made her criticisms public? :)

a small bit about "ellen":  the last episode had me in tears because it was
so close to what i experienced with my parents (minus the happy ending).
and they've said that there will be 1 more show dealing specifically with
the coming out (to co-workers), and i'd expect it to be a minor issue after
that.  if they really wanted to follow stereotypes, last week ellen
would've gotten drunk, picked up a femme at that lesbian coffee house, and
moved in with her this week. :)

i would like to clarify something, i do not have a "poor, pitiful me
attitude", and if that is what was inferred from my post maybe it should
be read again.  i do not care if the world approves of my life and my
sexuality, i do not ask for acceptance.  however, i do exist and as a
human being and as a bisexual female i do not want to be, no i demand not
to be shoved aside.  and that is what society does when it does not
accurately reflect the population.  when there are no african-americans
on television or in magazine ads people readily call our society
racist.  when women face the "glass ceiling" in the business world people
call it sexist.  well, when i can loose my job or my home, when my
life long committment is not recognized simply because my partner is
female i call that heterosexist.  and this heterosexist society is the
society that has cradled me and raised me and taught me how to be
socially acceptable.  and when i look around "socially acceptable" does
not include queer.  that's why i think it is importatnt for people like
ellen and melissa etheridge and the poli sci professor i had last
semester and the rabbi at the synagogue down the street and senators and
janitors and astronauts and artists and anyone else to live openly and
honestly.  maybe i wouldn't be so skepticle if when i was younger i had
seen that even though i was queer i could still be anything i wanted to
be.  but that was not an image presented to me, my life and my choices
are limited because of how society views my sexuality, not how i view my
self.  i am a strong, independent, and (at the risk of sounding
conceited) beautiful woman and it took me a long time to realize that.
but as long as i know that it is unimportant what anyone else thinks.
what is important is that as a citizen of this country and as a human
being that i am treated with the same respect as everyone else.  and
frankly right now that does not happen.

it's true that we gay folks are indeed privy to a few secrets that the
straight community doesn't have, but that's only because we have to band
together against the homophobic minority out there. we don't do it to have
a secret society! hee hee...i would love to just be accepted by
everyone,but until i can walk across campus holding hands with my gf
without getting yelled at or stomped on, i'm gonna hang on to my gay
community with both hands...

my nine year old son heard it, and giggled like beavis, but was told not
to sing it to grandma or daddy. my problem is that now my local "top 40"
radio stations cannot play it because it is not rate pg. i agree it
probably could have been something else.

no, there is no secret society, but there is a secret code.

fire!fire!fire! umm uh mmm huh huh!

for those of you who don't know, "fire" is a secret code word for
lesbians.  so are combat boots.  so if you ever wear combat boots, or if
you write songs with the word fire in it, yepp, you're a big ole lesbian.

you mean you didn't know that!? ;)

it would be nice if things worked like that, but the perennial problem of
satire is that it's not effective.  an a priori argument can be made for this.
for example, let's posit the existence of three parties; homophobe, ellen, and
good-humored liberal; engaged in a satirical circumstance.  ellen does a
satirical immitation of homophobe. ghl laughs heartily and winks at and elbows
homophobe in the ribs, expecting that homophobe got the joke.  homophobe at
this point can have five reactions. a) he can get irritated at the rib poking
because he just didn't get what the satire was about. b)he can laugh along
because he didn't recognize that it was he who was being satirized. c) he can
recognize himself but not recognize that he is being represented satirically.
("finally someone in the media is giving me a voice," he says proudly.) d) he
can become enraged at the elitism of the satirist and the representation that
makes him look like a buffoon.  finally, there is the reaction that a satirist
hopes for, e)homophobe sees himself as the object of satire and is moved to
change his attitudes and actions as a result of this good-natured tweeking.
        given that the assumption of satire (the point of doing it at all) is
that the target is deficient in some way, usually mentally or morally, it seems
that the satirist's hope for e is dismally unrealistic.  most likely, a satire
will result in nothing more than a genuine laugh from those "in the know."
                                just some thoughts,
                                julie feia

hi everbody. well i had about the best luck ever last night. i was playing
at a open mike at the whole shabang in alameda last night, and i was one of
the last people up. well, i'm about half way through fugitive and who comes
walking out of the bathroom and right past the stage......caroline aiken! i
almost dropped my guitar i was so shocked. well anyways, as this was the
kind of grand opening for this new pub, and she was in town for some
reason, she got up and did over an hour, blowing the roof of the
place....all for free! i requested a song from her album and she was
shocked that someone in alameda knew her stuff. for those of you who
haven't seen caroline live, she is absolutely amazing. i never seen anyone
do the things she does with a guitar. phenomenal. i'm not sure if her show
at kuwumbwa (sp?) in santa cruz has past, but if not its very soon, like
next week?,  go see her. if you don't love her, i'll pay for your ticket.

one last thing, it always seems with caroline aiken, i get all starstruck
and can't hold a normal conversation. when i met her after her show in
berkeley last year i simply wanted to say i like her music and heard her
open for ig. i end up sounding like stuttering john from th howard stern
show! last night, i went to say hi and ask if her manager, lorene(who i met
at her last show and is on and off this list), was with her,so i could say
hi. and i sounded like a dork again........aarrgghh. but she did say that i
sounded good playing. i'll be fan forever just for that...........

what's the moral of the story, support your local music scene, you never
know who might show up!

still grinning,

subject:      (nigc) stereotypes....

hiya.  just wanna share my opinions about the subject of stereotypes in general
since i think some people are being quite inconsistent without realizing it.

1) steroetypes are _based_ on real observations.  this does not mean that they
equal facts; what it means is that someone said to someone else "gosh, the
plumber i called over had these baggy pants and they showed his butt!"  and
the friend said "hey! that happened to me, too!"  this goes on until it builds
into a stereotype.

2) stereotypes are the cousins of generalities, without which we could not
function.  generalities include everything from "i'm pretty sure that gravity
will still be in effect tomorrow" (so almost-certain that it's a law) to
"if i study, i will get a better grade" (could be true, but who knows?)

3) what makes stereotypes different from generalities is that they have the
  potential to hurt people.  if i move to new hampshire and apply for a high-
  tech job, i could not get it because they think all south carolinians are
  inbred racist morons, etc.  this part is important, because it explains the
  phenomenon that stereotypes about empowered people are "ok," but stereotypes
  about unepowered people are not.  the idea is that white people are in a
  position to deny black people things because of stereotypes, but blacks have
  little/no control over the fate of whites, and so on.

   once you understand this, you see why it's societally sanctioned to have
bad stereotypes of whites, christians, lawyers, large corporations, politi-
cians, but not various minorities, and (this is the important part) it's not
because all the stereotypes about empowered people are correct and the ones
about minorities are wrong.  theoretically, then, in a society controlled by
gays, it would be ok to make lesbian jokes, but not kosher to joke about
heteros.

  get it?  so don't say that the stereotypes you don't like are unfounded and
the ones you use are true.  that is hypocritical.  (after all, if one maintains
that "gayness" is genetic, wouldn't there be accompanying _genetic_ sexual
traits?)  a much more fruitful debate, imo, is whether we are justified in
using any stereotypes against individuals.  we should take each situation and
each person as we encounter them.

                 thanx for putting up with my preaching, chris

ps- please flame me, if need be, over personal email.  let's keep nastiness off
this list....

subject:      chicago tribune review and gotm q
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

the tribune has reviewed shaming of the sun so i thought i'd post it.  the
following is reprinted completely illegally and without the express written
consent of the loser who wrote it :)

indigo girls
shaming of the sun
(epic) **1/2

on an indigo girls album you know what to expect: some pretty melodies and
harmonies; an everybody-hold-hands, us-against-the-corrupt-world vibe;
sweet-voiced, naive earnestness from emily saliers; tough poses from a
growling amy ray; tasteful, rootsy arrangements that have grown more
cluttered on recent albums; not a speck of humor.  so it goes for the new
one.  a hurt sounding saliers laments government conspiracies to burn
southern black churches (the piano ballad leeds) and to tap her phone (burn
all the letters, punctuated by weird tribal chanting), while ray bellows
apocalytically on don't give that girl a gun and an abrasive excursion into
folk-hop, shed your skin.  still these two know their audience well and as
hey kind friend and get out the map show, they've retained their
big-sisterly appeal.

editorial comments:  i am sure ulali are sitting home going--cool we've
been reduced to weird tribal chanting.  what a fartnogger this reviewer is.
and excuse me but ig have lots of humor in their songs.  i mean there's
airplane and...and...and   ;-)

their humor comes out in concert only i guess.  the guy needs to go to a
concert clearly.

onto a question.  it is very nitpicky but i need to know.  in gotm there is
a part where a and e are harmonizing towards the end there and i can't seem
to figure out who is singing which part.  i must know.  if you have a cd
player (these days that's like asking if you have a phone) go to 2:45 on
your timer.  they are harmonizing the "i'm gonna clear my head, i'm gonna
drink that sun" part.  i will spell this out very precisely to mark the
point of confusion for me.

2:45  a says i'm gonna clear my head followed shortly by e saying same line

2:48 a says i'm gonna drink that sun followed by e saying same line

2:50  e is still finishing up her i'm gonna drink that sun line when a
voice comes in with the beginning of "i'm gonna love you"

2:52  a finishes line beginning with "good and strong til our love is good
and young.

question: who is singing the "i'm gonna love you" part at 2:50.  it seems
way too high for amy.  how can it be emily if she hasn't finished her other
line.  and i don't seem to recall past cd's having either of the girls
harmonize with themselves via dubbing  (of course i could be mistaken on
that one).  deb reiser, did you have a cameo on this album and didn't tell
me?  :)  was it you, kira?  alycia?  lorinda?  sherlyn?  margaret?  dee?
it was lynn martin--reprising her role from newport :).  thanks for help
and input

greg

btw--nigc but if you haven't picked up living in clip by ani difranco i
suggest you shuffle your heiny (sp?) over to a record store and do so.  i
mean i actually removed sots today to listen to ani instead :o  later.

did anyone find it just a little disturbing that amy seems to really be

hey y'all,

        well, i'm out of here tomorrow morning, so i'll be signing off the
list for the summer.  it's been great and i thank you for being such a
wonderful group of people.  i never thought that i'd develop so many
friendships on the internet.  special thanks to amy teplow and tracy fears-
you gals are fabulous!!!!  also, thanks for all the support regarding my
former art teacher.  i decided to write back to him and very neutrally told
him how i felt about his dismissing the indigo girls due to their
orienation.  well, i think that i'm going to have a major battle on my
hands.  let's just say that this message was even more upsetting than the
first.  anyway, if any of you want to reach me, you can still email me, but
there's no guarentee that i'll be able to check it at home.  i'm probably
going to be back here in july, though, so i'll probably rejoin the list
then.  have an indigo summer and i'll see all you fellow jerseyans at the
pnc show june 5th (will you people be wearing some sort of list t-shirts or
something?  i'd love to meet some list members).

                take care and be happy,

                        sarah :-)

single doesn't exsist(and promos don't count). if they wasnt more radio
play they better get movin and release that single. my dream is to hear
casey kasem say and now at #1 the indigo girls with.....
ben
-who honestly just wants to hear the acoustic versions of sots songs they
put on singles:)

so, does this make james taylor (i've seen fire and i've seen rain...) a
lesbian? bruce springsteen ('cause when we kiss, ummmmm fire...) a
lesbian.

well, i looked back at all the songs i have ever written, and i can't
find one instance of using the word fire. so, i guess i am left out of
the secret society.

ok, completely off the subject (sort of). i have always wondered way a
man is "gay" and a woman is "a lesbian". this has always struck me as
odd. in the case of men it seems to be an adjective, like he's tall...
he's gay.... but if we say she is a lesbian, then lesbian becomes a noun
and it appears to become a defining term of the individual instead of an
adjective describing a part of the whole. just seems odd to me... any
thoughts...

on an indigo note, has anyone else thought that in caramia emily is
actually talking to a part of herseslf? i have started to think this
song is addressing the creative part of herself. often, at least in my
experience, the creative part of the self is somewhat, well tortured. i
think this is who emily is talking to, in herself. anyone else?

peace,

and then they cut it off.  arggggghhhh!!!  i hope for everyone else's
sake it was just philly cnn and not everyone.


i was thinking about how happy i get, just grinning and literally on the
edge of my seat whenever i see amy and emily on tv and how friggin
irrational and crazy it is but how cool it is, to see people you don't
even know all happy and doing what they do best and be happy yourself just
seeing it and knowing it's happening.  and then cnn cut off the end and it
felt all wrong.  you can't just do that, stop in the middle of the song
like that.  have they no respect????

anyway it was still neat to see part of it.

later y'all,
audrey

hmmm, i always suspected that "indigo" was listed only because they needed
a vowel, and blue-purple (which i think is the name of the crayon) would
turn roy g. biv into something, ahem, unspeakable :-)

hey everyone!

well, i just finished watching a&e on cnn showbiz.  it was great!  as someone
posted earlier, it will be on again @12:30am est.  if you don't get a chance
to watch or tape it, i was able to, so i'd gladly make copies for ya.  i will
be out of town until monday, so if you email me, don't expect a reply until
then.

amy seems pretty nervous, and after they both spoke, she leaned over to emily
and whispered "was i bad?"  it was so cute. of course emily said "no! no you
weren't bad".  well, at least that is what i think they said.  i am certainly
no lip reader.  :)  they  started to play "shame on you", but then amy
realized she still had her capo on the 1st fret.  she stopped playing and and
threw it on the floor....while emily was cracking up and yelled out "rock and
roll!"  they should be a comedy team in their spare time!  beside the
interruption of the credits rolling next to them on the screen, it was
great!!!!

have a great weekend!

jan-(who lied and left work early just to see a&e for 3 min. on tv...i scare
myself sometimes!  thank god for the cnn news updates i get on my pager!!!)

mime-version: 1.0

first of all, thanks to my wonderful bf, jan, i caught ig on cnn showbiz
today!  they showed  short preview clips of them playing ia, sys, and
galileo live, and the po2 video.  the cnn woman asked them a few questions
about going top 40 & touring, and then they showed most of a&e playing soy,
which was all acoustic.  e was wearing a rage against the machine shirt,
and a was wearing that red & blank polka-dotted l/s shirt.  they showed the
show credits during the song, and ended the show right before the "1964"
line.  both a&e were pretty smiley, especially after the "fucking up" line!
it was pretty cool!  i taped it, but i don't have 2 vcr's, so i have no way
of dubbing it for people.

i saw dar last week on south street in philadelphia, and i took some pretty
good pictures of her.  either go to my main page, and click on "dar
williams" or go directly to http://www.sas.upenn.edu/~ablipman/darpics to
see them.

this whole ellen thing reminded me of the movie, "jeffrey." i had to watch
it for my writing class this year, & i wrote a paper about how the comedy
in the film makes the serious subjects of aids, love, and homosexuality
more palatable for both gay and straight viewers.  it sounds pretty similar
to what ellen is doing.  i just thought i'd mention that connection.

i'm going home tomorrow, so i probably won't have access to e-mail for a
few days.  if you need to reach me, you can e-mail me at my penn address,
b/c i will check my mail as soon as i get online from home, & i'm also
going to forward my mail to my new e-mail address, which i don't know yet.
if i owe you boots, they'll be in the mail pretty soon.  if you owe me
boots, please send them to my nj address.  if we're in the middle of
working out a trade, i'll e-mail you as soon as i get online again.  if i
owe you personal e-mail, you will get it shortly.  i've been busy w/ finals
& papers & stuff, but now it's all over!

well, i listened to that part of the song a few times and have come to the
conclusion that it is amy...i know it's kinda high, but as she has proven
in sb, she is able to reach high notes...

incidentally, while on the subject of high notes on sb, did anyone else
notice that amy's voice was kinda strained at approximately 1:17m of the
song..oh well...

yea, 1 last question, is it my imagination or is there some sorta mumbling
during sys at around 1:35m, .....after ulali's scream...can't quite make it

hmmmm, that's odd.  our model of gaydar says 'deet-dee-dee' (like 3 d's
for 'dyke') when it sees a lesbian.  for gay men, it says 'tra-la-la-a'
(emphasis on the 3rd syllable there).  do you think our gaydar is

i don't think it's that amy's *into* drugs per se, because like, i ahve done
my personal experimentatioin with some of it, and i support legalization if
only to keep people out of jail on piddling crap and certainly reefer's no
more deadly than tobacco.  but i don't think she 's *into* drugs, it's just
her opinion.  i'm sure in my own mind that if she was a druggie, it'd be
seriously obvious.

i'm not quite sure what you mean by "drug use in our culture",  but
our culture is already saturated with drugs: caffeine, nicotine, alcohol,

prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs, even illegal recreational
drugs.  humans have a basic urge to alter their consciousness.
drugs are but one of many ways to accomplish this, and every culture
on earth has drug use in its history.  in fact, humankind's shift from
being nomadic hunter-gatherers to an agricultural-based society was
driven in part by the desire to have a regular supply of grain to make
alcohol.

keep in mind that what's illegal in one country or culture might be
legal in another.  for example, during the gulf war, the troops weren't
allowed to have alcohol because it wasn't legal in saudi arabia.
hashish was legal there, and the dutch troops could use it, but not
the americans because it was still illegal for them.  also, many of the
drugs that are illegal in the u.s. were originally prohibited in order to

oppress the minority which used them.

i think the point that amy's making in the interview is very sane.  amy
is acknowledging that there is a difference between drug use and
drug abuse.  believe it or not, i'm more concerned with ctf's
reference to binge drinking ("and i woke up with a headache
like my head against a board", etc.) than with amy stating that it's
stupid that pot is illegal, not to mention that i agree with her.  her
willingness to take a stand on this issue only deepens my respect
for her.  she didn't say she was "into drugs", but she's admitting that
she has smoked pot.  go amy!

now, here's the excerpt from the interview if y'all want to see exactly
what amy said:
*-have you ever done a bunch of drugs?
*"a bunch? (laughs) well, i've done my share, but it's relative, isn't
it?
*for me, uh, no, probably not as much as i could. (laughs) my issue with
*drugs now is, you don't know what you're getting ever, and the best
things
*that are natural and organic aren't available. it's a drag."
*
*-do you think they should be legalized?
*"oh, i definitely think they should legalize pot. and i think they
should
*legalize opiates in general that come from a natural form. i don't think
*they should legalize coke. or heroin. i just think they're evil. i think
*cocaine, well, it's a drug of privilege, for one thing, but i don't
know,
*for some reason, i draw the line, as far as legalization goes, at that.
i
*don't know why. it might be some weird thing in my own psyche about
*what i think is a good drug, and what isn't a good drug. but i think
they
*should legalize pot. i really do. i think it's really stupid that they
haven't.
*and hash, and probably opium in it's purest form. it's just, all these
*things when they start boiling stuff down, and changing it, and doing
*this and that, and it takes time, and they make a lot of money off it,
*something's wrong with that, to me."
*
*-if pot was legal, don't you think it would be totally regulated by the
*-government, and diluted, and additives put into it?
*"not if you grew it at your own home, though. i mean, that's an issue.
if
*they legalize it, does it become another tobacco industry? which is
*complete bullshit, we all know. and if that was gonna happen, i would be
*against it. i almost think, legalize it, but don't make it something
that's
*allowed to be sold, as far as big corporations go. make it something
that
*you can grow in your backyard. i don't know. put something in [the law]
to
*keep it from becoming a corporate international company."
*
*-that's kind of hard to do if something's legal. if it's legal,
shouldn't
*-anyone be allowed to buy or sell it?
*"yeah, but 'exxon marijuana'?"
*
*-but who's to say they shouldn't be allowed to sell it if they want, if
it's
*-legal?
*"i don't know. these are good questions. that's probably why i'm not on
*the city council or anything."

i'm sure it's amy.  from personal experience, being an alto doesn't mean
you can't hit high notes; it's just not your best range.  in my case, it's
best that i don't even try!  i sound like a beach boy (or is that a beached
whale?) when i have to shift into my head voice, which is at c above middle
c. and actually, i'm not sure "i'm gonna..." even reaches (or it just
barely reaches) that c because i don't have too much of a problem hitting
the notes (it ain't a pretty sound, but how can anyone resist singing
along?).  in fact, i've noticed that most of the time in emily's songs, she
doesn't even go out of my range.  her vocal tone is higher than amy's tho',
which gives the illusion that she's singing significantly higher than amy.
plus, emily pretty much stays in her head voice, even on low notes (which
is hard to me!). i'm not a music major, this is just what i notice.

have a great weekend, all!

sorry about adding my cnn announcement to everyone else's.  i'm set up
with the digest so i didn't realize others had already announced it.

at any rate, i have a copy of the time magazine review of shaming of the
sun.  i'd be happy to forward it to anyone who emails me privately.  it's
about three paragraphs long with one more on laura love.  i'll send the
whole thing or just the ig part, whichever you prefer.

thanks.

after watching cnn, this is like the 3rd time in as many tv sightings that i
have noticed amy covering her arms.  some people before wondered why she was
covering her arms.  please dont flame i'm very sensitive.  i dress alot like
amy does and the last time i went around with my sleeves down i had a few
hundred stitches up and down my arms where i cut my wrists.

my point is that we should avoid speculation about this because while all our
curiosity has been piqued by this, there could be 115 personal reasons why
amy doesn't want her arms visible.  it's none of our business.

and my request - can the posts about ellen please all go away?  i personally
am sick of hearing about ellen.  yeah it's great she's out well guess what -
it's over!!!  :)  if there's more ellen discussion let it be taken to the
ellen list!

i love y'all!!!!!!!!

peace, harmony & indigo,

okay, this may be kind of a sensitive message, but here goes...
how did those of you who are lesbians figure out that you are indeed
lesbians?  i've been struggling with my sexuality for about a week
and a half and it's kind of consuming me right now.  i think it's
partially brought on by ellen, those couple of lines on the new ig
album, and just my observations in general.  i don't know anyone who
(i know) is gay, so i really don't have anyone to talk to about this,
and i don't want to bring it up to my parents, etc., until i'm a
little more sure of how i feel.  if anyone has any advice, i'd really
appreciate it.  thanks.

elizabeth

p.s.  other than the infamous "gaydar," how do you ever know who to
approach, etc.?  i'm beginning to agree with whoever said that this
world is all targeted to heterosexuals.  aggghh...i think my brain is

mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

i now have a volunteer who has plenty of webspace for distributing the
screensavers, so that hurdle has been tackled.

although i did mention in a prior post that i received "buttloads of
e-mail", only a couple had any direct "contributions."  i mostly got
questions about availability (issue addressed above) and answers to my
concert date question (i now know about dallas dates... thanks!).

i did get a couple of e-mails that sounded like people wanted me to trade a
boot for a screensaver or something... i'm making these things for free....
i don't intend on making profit from making them... quite frankly, that
would probably be pretty illegal.  i will only distribute them to people on
the list (only people on the list will be given the address to the website
where the screensavers will be).  if record stores get busted for carrying
boots they didn't even make, i sure don't want to get in any kind of legal
hassle for using igs images/music/whatever in a project that gets passed
along all over the internet & newsgroups.

i have received one response from someone who can create a spinning ig logo
via 3d rendering.

i do have an art degree, but i'd appreciate some art direction from fellow
ig fans... any ideas/suggestions concerning imagery/music/animation, etc.

remember, i will be able to create identical screensavers for mac &
windoze... and they don't have to be slide show stuff like the shareware
programs out there... i can also incorporate quicktime movies.  i don't
have an av card on my mac (i plan on getting one in the future, but they
cost around $700) right now, so i can't hook up a camcorder or vcr to my
computer to convert a video to quicktime, but if anyone has that capability
or already has access to a quicktime movie w/ the igs, please e-mail me.

your suggestions/ideas are more than welcomed... they are encouraged....
feel free to post to the list so that creative juices can start flowing,
but please cc: me so that i'll be sure to read it... i don't always have
time to read all the messages posted nightly.

i know what that's like. i am currently sorting out such questions.

she calls. every once in a blue moon. she had the nerve to ask me if
i'm dating, that's none of her concern. i made the stupid mistake of
telling her, when she does not know me very well of telling her i
might be bisexual and she has the nerve to start talking to me about
sodom and gamarra! how irratating. i was upset for most of the day.
jan, my cousellor paid me to clean her floor, which wasn't bad. she
has a real cute dog. she's also gay. i'm way off topic. anyways,
over the last few days i have been considering the same thing. i seem
to find both males and females atractive, but mostly females...
this is interesting. i just took up a lot of space with my rambling
sorry. how can i be sure though when i don't date or anything?

called commnet to telnet into your uni acct.  there is a version specific to
aol called cnetaolr.zip.  it works great.

i started using it because all of the dial-up lines would be busy, but even
if you live 1/2 way across the country it should still get you into your
account with no ld charge.

also, there is a more generic version, but i can't personally attest to it's
effectiveness.

this is in response to greg flamer who was the most recent person to ask
the question: who's singing "i'm gonna love you good and strong" in that
part in gotm where em's busy singing other stuff and amy clearly finished
the line with "while our love is good and young.  (i hope that's specific
enough, i somehow lost the post in which greg asked the question.)

this has been kicked around a bit but i don't think ther was ever a
consensus reached. so here's my take.

i am pretty positive it's amy for a number of reasons:
   1.) it would be a little odd to split that line in half
   2.) ig doesn't generally dub in parts to harmonize with themselves (i
can't really think of a single instance off the top of my head.)
   3.)  emily sings that same line elsewhere in the song.  if it were
she, why would it sound different from the other times she sings it?
   4.) while it's unexpectedly high for amy, it's not excessively so and
moreover, it still sounds like her.  besides her range has definitely
expanded in recent years (in both directions)  check out scooter boys and
check out jcs.  listen to the beginning of poor jerusalem and tell me
that line in gotm isn't amy.

which brings me to another thought that has undoubtedly been discussed
before but on the off chance it hasn't - it seems to me jcs was a very
significant musical experience for both a&e.  i feel like it definitely
had some stylistic impact on them (though i apologize i can't come up with
specific examples, it's just a general flavor/crude impression sort of
thing.) i also think it had an impact on both the girls' voices.  as i
said, amy's range seems to have expanded in both directions and emily's
sounds somehow stronger, clearer (not a very scholarly description, i
know) i also don't know how much of that is specifically from having
prepared and done jcs but my guess is it was at least partially
responsible.

here's a thought..
perhaps it is easier to play the guitar with your strumming hand's sleeve
rolled up, as to keep it clear of strings etc.. maybe it's just that simple,
no political statement, no shame, just the fact that it is easier to play
that way.

subject:      community on the list (nigc)
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

in all the ellen discussion here on the ig list, the subsequent backlash
about appropriate topics of conversation, and the stuff that's turned
nasty, i deleted a lot of messages.  in my haste i deleted one which i
really wanted to reply to and which i think is of more general interest
to the list.

someone recently began a message by saying something to the effect of
"there's not a sense of community on this list."  i beg to differ.

in the 3-4 months i've been subscribed i've felt there to be a definite
sense of communiy and general good will that displays itself in a number
of ways.

first: there are the specifically ig related things.  among them, are the
people who unselfishly give there time to participate in boot trees,
frquently without any trade in return.  then there are those who
disseminate information about upcoming ig events.  also, the folks who
work on guitar tabs and kindly distribute them to the list, people who
have provided rides to ig concerts and even places to stay, and then of
course list gatherings!

then, how about the way this list pulled together for the hte
donation for amy's birthday.

secondly:  beyond the specifically ig related, i've seen encouragement and
support for all kinds of artistic endeavors - musical, written, and
otherwise.

i've seen people help students out with various kinds of research in ways
such as simply pointing out various information sources to participating
in questionairres.

i've also seen people here support one another in times of personal
crisis.  while this has frequently tended to be stuff related to issues of
homophobia/heterosexism (understandable given the demographics of the
list), it's certainly not limited to that.  i've also seen sympathy and
support offered to people facing surgery, the death of a pet, or the
death of a family member.

there are also those who post for the sake of interupting and hopefully
ending arguments that have tuned nasty.  as i see it, that's not about
control as someone suggested, it's abou putting things in perspective and
trying to re-establish a generally friendly tone on the list. (as well
as reduce off topic material.)

ther are also those who do things just to bring smiles to the faces of
others.  everything from annonymously mailing people tapes and magazine
articles to april fool's jokes to the recent dgtgag parody courtesy of
anna creeh and suzy b.

so yes, i think there's a sense of community on this list.  sure there
are differences of opinion and yes, sometimes those differences turn
nasty.  but there are also tons of really friendly, supportive people
here.  and my feeling is that it's the good stuff that dominates the
overall tone of the list.  perhaps my impresion is biased by my selective
reading of messages.  if that's the case, so be it.  judicious use of the
delete key (and i know you all have one) goes a long way.

that is the deal. throughout the years of seeing ig play, amy, when wearing
a long-sleeved overshirt, inevitably rolls up the strumming arm (right) and
leaves the other (left) arm rolled down. in fact, most guitarists i listen
to/watch do the same. i am learning the guitar and i even do it.

when i used to ride a bike, i tucked my pant cuffs into my boots, too. i
always thought those little cuff clips were way too *queer to use. ;-)

does anyone besides me remember those? my gf (a young 27) just looked at me
like i was crazy. pant cuff clips? anyone?

sigh.

* i am using the word queer here to mean odd. however, as a lesbian, i have
special permission from the high council of gays/lesbians/etcetera to bandy
about the gay lingo as i see fit. i name it and claim it! ;-)

btw, the above is a joke! well, some of it, anyway.

i think we have a sense of a true community here in two ways :

1. we are similar in some beliefs, we share, we accept other
differences (to a certain point - ahem, *thinking of poul).

2. we make private friendships outside of the list with other list
members.

what i mean by this is that, at least for me, after putting messages
on the list, i began to get private e-mail from some people who were
also list members. although i did not keep sending mail to all of  them (and
them to me), i did start to get regular correspondance from some,
and from that friendships grew. i think that is part of what gives
this list a true sense of community.

sorry for rambiling,

john.

that statement has no value except to be nasty...and its really unnessary.
i'm all for equal time for everyone's opinion, regardless of whether or not
i agree with it.  but cutting nasty remarks have no place here and frankly
make the readers go on the defensive and not pay attention to what you are

just thinking about two things (i don't know whether they've been

1. one thing : if we're going to flame somebody, can we please do it
privately - i know that, as a sort-of community, we're supposed to
have our disagreements, but at least we should try to keep it
private to avoid upsetting others on the list who aren't involved in
the argument.

2. on a more stupid note, is it just me, or have others noticed that
when people say they're delurking, it sounds like decloaking in star
trek ("listee delurking off the port bow").....

just a few thoughts,

john.

don't even ask about the rhythms - i've never written tab before, and

there's two chords per measure except the d whole note and e half note at the

three beats and then a rest
i'm not sure about any of the banjo lead parts, or the bm chord in the chorus

my advice to anyone contemplating getting this compilation, particularly
in the usa, is quite simply:  don't bother.   it *is* very badly-done -
for instance, the song information was taken straight off the credits for
the albums, which means that for songs of the 1989 album, where only the
guests were credited, amy and emily don't get credit for playing and
singing.   and worse still, on some copies of that album when you open up
the inlay book you'll find the information for a cypress hill album!
also the songs are all taken from the ig, nis, rop and so albums - it's
*all* previously-released material, with none even from sf and botby or
from the uk tour in late 1994 from which they originally intended to take
material, so if you already have those four albums, you're getting nothing
new.   all the compilation was intended for is to cash in on the girls'
appearance at glastonbury in 1995, and i suppose it makes a reasonable
introduction for anyone not familiar with the igs' music.   if you've
already got those albums, i'd ring up pretty quick and cancel that order.

hey all...
my totally hyper "creativity" came back to haunt me yesterday, all cause
when i first heard dgtgag i messed with the lyrics :-)...
i was in the mall here + stumbled across an adorable stuffed eeyore +
thought i might just buy it for a very good friend of mine who's name will
remain anonymous ( trace ) who has an affinity for the poor "nobody listens
to me anyways" fellow.... but then i turned it over + looked at the price
tag.... yoiks!!!! <choking + sputtering...> no wonder tho... i checked the
label + the thing was a gund... sigh... so for the rest of the afternoon, i
had amy reminding me that no matter how much i wanted to buy that sucker, i
couldn't afford to....
"i said now, don't... don't give that girl a gund..."
tsssk:-)...
i swear i'll never mess with an ig song again, i swear.... no matter *how*
much i wanna sing "burn all the fetters" as a women's lib protest
kinda-song, i will not mess with those lyrics.
achem... anyways...
anyone else do this; assign silly words to yer favorite songs + from then +
ever after be stuck singing the *wrong* words?
peace all... kim ( who is off to the beach today... we's got property +
needs ta build a picnic table.... woo hoo... good friends, rum by a camp
fire + a setting sun to watch... heaven )
ps... kim in couver + trace... i'll tap atcha later. i'm negligent, i
know... but in that you understand, i'm confident:-)

subject:      cnn!  seattle!

hi everybody!  we just watched the cnn performance for the bazillionth time
and we've been obsessed with the little details, like when amy says, "hi how
are ya" without moving her lips, through clenched teeth....and how she asks
emily if she was bad in the interview....emily's smile, of course....we
thought it "funny" how they panned away when it was time for amy to use the f
word ;(  they both seemed to be having fun....we loved the way amy smiles
when she gets to the line, "when the beautiful ladies walk right by, you
know, i never know what to say..."   too bad cnn had to play credits during
their performance and that they were cut off before the song ended :(

on another ecstatic note,  we bought our tickets to the seattle july 13th
show!!!!!!!!!!!!  we got up early to get the tickets,only to get an almost
constant busy signal and then a recording that they weren't open
yet...anyway, we're driving to seattle from nevada, through boise, so if
there are any other list members from this area who want to hitch a ride, let
us know!!

gettin' out the map,

i made a bad decision
called qvc, ordered a batch
had them home delivered, she's gonna send 'em all back
how my heart did fall, but i swear she cracked a smile
i can't think of what else to send her
my favorite was the green crocodile

hold the first gund bear it'll be real cuddly
it's your gift, soft and snuggly
hold the second gund bear it'll be real cool
it's yours too

don't give that girl a gund
she's already got one (thousand)

i said now hold it closer
can you feel something good happening
she said "don't send me another, another gund again."

subject:      re: info needed abt 4.5 cd

with all due respect, i disagree that this album is badly done.  when i
first saw it in the store, i figured that it would be a waste of money
because i already had the same songs from the studio albums.  last
year, i lost myself in the lifeblood ig archives and read some good
reviews of 4.5.  one reviewer even said that the sound quality on this
disc was better than on the original albums, so i decided that i had to
get it and see for myself.  sure enough, he was right - i'll be damned
if everything doesn't sound clearer and more present, especially the
guitars.  i have no idea why - maybe the tracks were re-mastered for
4.5?  at any rate, even if the inlays were messed up on some copies
(they weren't on mine), if you can afford it, i feel that the superior
sound quality of this album makes it worth owning.

peace,
fran e.

since other people have posted to the list i figure i'd post my response to
siti:
  i have 4.5 and i bought it at a regular record store (i think it was tower
records) for the price of an average cd. i have every ig cd released by the
ig on epic so i had to have it! as for 'is it good?'-well, basically its a
"mix" cd.  it includes different tracks from their other albums, unaltered i
think. basically, if you have all the other cds you could theoretically make
your own 4.5. for me, like i said, it was a matter of having everything
they've released. also, its interesting to see what songs their people chose
to put on this cd because as i understand, it was meant to introduce foreign
fans with the ig. (the sticker on the cd says " the best of the ig, 15 songs
including closer to fine, features rem, jackson browne, david crosby, mary
chapin carpenter, 'a tasteful indulgence'-melody maker 'a true delight not
to be missed'-billboard ") i think its good because sometimes i'm in the
mood for a whole bunch of different ig songs. i hope this helps.

okay i know at this point almost everyone has heard the ig on the radio but
not me so i am a little psyched and wanted to share. about an hour ago they
said "coming up next, new music from the spice girls, indigo girls and ????"
at that point i lost all concentration and ran over to the radio to crank it
up. so it took them an hour but they finally played shame on you with the
fuckin up part muted.  the guy introduved it by saying 'here are the ig
making a comeback(?) with shame on you" and when it was over he was like
"that was the ig who seem to be evrywhere on the tv shows, at least lately".
and that was it. i'm sure they were finally put on the radio because they
made the top ten nationally for shaming of the sun. btw, this happened on
star 105.7 up here in binghamton ny. i am here during the year for college
and basically, for you nyc folks, 105.7 is like z100. which makes me wonder
if z100 are/will play the girls. i will be home in a few days so i guess
i'll find out soon enough. anyway, just had to share!
later igoers-dave

subject:      lilith fair in milwaukee; crazy game trivia

thanks to all who responded to me about the date
of the last crazy game concert performance.  there
was general agreement that the last one was 5/4/96.

i just got lilith fair tickets for the aug. 19 milwaukee
performance.  they went on sale today at noon.  i
got mine at 12:03, behind only one person who was
getting tickets for something else.  the best i could get
is sec. 1 row v (23rd row).  geez, i suppose with 4 headliners
(shawn colvin, ig, sarah mclachlan, and jewel), the
show sold 4 times faster than a normal ig show.  it sure
did seem like it.  did anyone on this list fare any better?

is section 1 at the marcus amphitheater
in milwaukee left, center, or right?  the writing on the
www ticketmaster seating chart isn't readable.

please e-mail me privately with responses.

sorry about this - i have been having a look around on the net trying to
find the
answer without bothering you all about it.

i live in australia in a smaller town and i was wondering if there was any
info on whether the album has been released here or not.  i have been
checking the local records stores - but found nothing so far.

any advice?

thanks and this is my first post - so i hope i am doing all the right

subject:      my personal take on sots
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
content-transfer-encoding: 7bit

hi all!

i love it.  i love it.  i love it.  i love it.  wow oh wow.  !!!

now to elaborate... :)

i picked up a copy of "shaming of the sun" just yesterday.  it was
difficult waiting past the release date, but sufficent lack of funds
prevented me from purchasing the cd on the long awaited day of april
29th.  [granted, i had bought a copy of the most incredible film
what's eating gilbert grape the week before.  where are my
priorities?  <grin>]

i put the cd in my cd player as soon as i got home and immediately
perused the lyrics.  i had only been exposed to "shame on you" (from
david letterman and rosie) as well as "cut it out" from the
scholastic compilation so i was eager to hear the songs you
have been raving about.  :)  the lyrics were soon forgotten however,
as i sat in disbelief at the stark electric guitar present on so many
tunes.  song after song was filled with drum beats and, uh, the volume
level seemed higher than normal.  ;)  at noticing the arrival of an
emily song i would get ready to enjoy a lovely, heartwrenching
ballad, but 'twas not to be.  boy, did they fool me!  *wink*  upon first
listen, i was tempted to cry "where are the girls?"  did anyone else
have a similar knee-jerk reaction?

but then a funny thing happened...i listened to the album again.  and
i love it.  because i no longer have those preconceptions of what i
_thought_ the album was going to be, i can truly appreciate the album
for what it *is*.  at the end of the last track i noticed something
that i have never felt during another ig album.  i was exhausted.
emotionally spent.  the electric, exuberant joy present in soy, gotm,
and ia made me dance around the room, while the harshness of sb and
cio stirred up the frustrations within me.  and what is there to say
about dgtgag except that i felt someone had reached into my chest,
grabbed my heart and stomped on it?  that is one of the most
tender, vulnerable l songs i have ever heard.

i was precariously close to tears during the last track hkf.  it was as if
amy and emily were saying to the listener, "thanks for coming along while we
shared our intimate feelings.  despite our doubts and sadness we're going
to be okay and so are you."  at least that's how i perceived it.

beautiful.  stunning.  definitely worth the wait.

sincerely,
lisa j. :)

if you think that my post was about something i considered important, you
really read it wrong ben my friend:-) it was *just* a post. i was
complaining about not being able to play it 'round my daughter who loves to
sing along with the  girls + loves their stuff... the swearing in no way
offends me, and after the year i just put in with two deaths in the family +
my teen aged son only this past week being hit by a truck on the highway (
he has broken bones but is okay ) believe you me, there are worse things
happening in this mom's life. sigh... it is *okay* for me to wish i could
play soy with my kids in full ear shot... :-) really. my opinions harm no
one, and change nothing... so relax:-)
peace, kim

subject:      lilith fair, tinley park, aug. 9 headliners, tracy chapman?

does anyone know who will be headlining at
the lilith fair in tinley park's new world music
theater in il, besides ig and sarah?  i would think
that shawn colvin and jewel would be there
too, since they're all going to be in milwaukee
ten days later.  i've looked at the lilith page on
the internet, but there is no schedule set for that
concert yet.  (it goes on sale may 31.)
i guess the main reason i am asking
this is because i really want to see tracy
chapman this summer, and i see that she has
just been added to the lilith fair line-up.  it looks
like she's playing many of the earlier shows (nowhere
near me).  i hope she makes it out my way.  solo
would be just peachy too.  :)  if you can shed some
light on this, please e-mail me privately.

p.s.  oh my, jewel's quite cute.  she did a great job
on snl tonight!

hey listees...

sorry to say that the screensaver project has gone the way of the dinosaur.
i have been alerted that programming such a screensaver for distribution is
illegal and can't be put on the list.   it seems like it can't qualify as
free speech, even if it doesn't defame/slander the igs (but rather
celebrates their talent) or gain profit for anyone.  like an idiot, i
bought the sony/epic ig screensaver a couple of years ago... found out
after i opened it that it only worked for windoze and when i tried it on
the windoze machine at work, it messed some other applications up.  i can
do a much better job than they did... but i'm not going to have the chance.
i apologize to those who volunteered their services to the project.

i am not sure if this has been posted but the numbers are in and shaming of
the sun debuted on the national charts at number 7.  this information was
taken from this week's entertainmant weekly which gets its info from
billboard charts.  the small blurb on this news was:  an even bigger
surprise was indigo girls' no 7 entry, boding well for a year of filthy
lucre for lilith-ians.

i wasn't surprised at all, but am a tad upset that ig got beat out by the
likes of george strait and the spacejam soundtrack  :(.

also for ratings enthusiasts--the ellen coming out episode was numero uno
for the week knocking er senseless with 36.2 million viewers vs er's 31.5
million.  i'm sure the folks who backed out of advertising are shaking
their heads now.  i mean even my dad watched the thing and he's like the
biggest "gay people are abnormal" guy in the universe.  ok that was too
much info but i'm tired at 4:30 am here :).

take care

mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

public service announcement
due to the increased incidence of feline rabies it is unwise approaching
strange or lost kitties, no matter how cute they may first appear.the
following are signs of this cruel and incurable disease.
1. unprovoked attacks. although at first they will appear to wish to be
friendly they will exploit any perceived weakness and dive in for the
kill. inferiority in size or numbers will not back them off, but
encourage them to more viscious attacks.
2. general bitchiness. no opponent is too small/weak to overlook, and
like felines in general they  enjoy teasing these before finishing them
off.
3. disordered thought processes, and loss of impulse control. although
able to initiate a logical argument they are unable to sustain it as the
underlying animosity and irrationality comes to the fore and results in
uncontrolled motor activity and verbal outbursts(potty-mouth)dr
strangelove is a good example but the diagnosis of rabies was never
established.
4.paranoia and delusions of grandeur which result in a sense of
isolation and loss of community, leading to a search for hidden
meanings, secret societies and conspiracy theories.
5.gratuitous pleas, offers and demands for sexual favors with animate
and inanimate objects. board up your bird houses.
6. excess salivation and hydrophobia are late events.

if you see lost kitties exhibiting the above avoid contact and call
animal control

kay... regarding my earlier post about the "f-word" ( you know; fuck ):-)
i guess you'd hafta be living here in my world ( closeted married mom on the
verge of breaking out + away ). see... i am married to a jehovah's witness
man + need to be careful about the music i play, tho it is my right to
listen to whatever i want. i just can't play this song + relax because my
girl is being raised by him as well as me, and her senses are offended by
that kind of talk, cause she's been raised *not* to use that kind of
language. it'd bother her big time if her mum, therefor, were to play
something that she knows that *i* know would be offensive to her... it's a
complicated situation, and not an easy one to work with + "i wish i hadn't
even brought the silly thing up!" :-) so... please y'all who keep posting me
+ telling me that my "problem" with letting my daughter "hear" the stoopid
fucking word ( acchhh lolol!!! ) is a ridiculous one... don't worry... you
don't gotta set me arights on my view. i unnerstan' she hears the word every
day at school... duh... :-) i heard it every day in school when i was a kid
too... but... oh, arrghhh... never mind...
i wonder where i left *my* biege paint ( kirsten?? you been touching up the
celings again?? )
peace... kim ( who had the nerve to wish amy'd said "messin" instead o'
"fuckin" just so's i could play my cd around my kid ).

hey mac fans...

if any of you use kaleidoscope (http://greg.math.harvard.edu) to enhance
your macintosh experience & are interested in new schemes, i just finished
working on a cool one (if i do say so, myself) that includes some neat
window-shade sound effects.  if you're interested, e-mail me privately &
i'll e-mail you a copy... it's a fairly small file (58k stuffed).

the scheme is not an ig scheme... just a high tech looking one.  looks a
little bit like the interface that was used val kilmer's powerbook in "the
saint."

if you are a mac user, and don't know about kaleidoscope, you are really
missing out... check out the details at the author's site (url above)...
don't let the name fool you, it's not some psychadelic screensaver or
anything... like aaron (another greg landweber application) on steroids...
allows you to choose what your windows, scroll bars, etc. look like &
change the color of 3d progression bars, and many other cool things...
custom trash icons, etc.

subject:      1694

last night, when chris was working (she is a superviser at a local casino),
she was changing her tickets ( that's where jackpots are recorded), the last
ticket was numbered 1694.  eerie coincidence....

just to add, i found some interesting facts concerning the year 1694 in the
columbia encyclopedia....it was the year that the first bank of england was
established, annapolis was established as the capitol of maryland, william
iii and mary ii were ruling england, voltaire was born, and....totally
reprinted without permission, the facts below....

george fox:
1624-91, english religious leader, founder of the society of friends. in 1646
he underwent a mystical experience that convinced him that christianity was
an inner light by which jesus directly illumines the believing soul.
beginning to preach in 1647, he was often persecuted and imprisoned but won
many followers. he organized his sect in 1668; the first london yearly
meeting was held in 1671. his journal (1694, with a preface by william penn)
has appeared in various editions.

(hishikawa moronobu), c.1618-c.1694, japanese painter and color-print
designer of the ukiyo-e school (see japanese art). one of his few surviving
works is a screen painting in the museum of fine arts, boston.

charles perrault
1628-1703, french poet famed for his mother goose tales (1697) for children.
one of his poems (1687) set off the celebrated "quarrel of the ancients and
the moderns"; boileau-despreaux, the chief defender of the ancients, bandied
insults with perrault until 1694.

phillip jakob spener
1635-1705, german theologian, founder of the devotional movement in
lutheranism known as pietism. as a lutheran pastor in frankfurt, he
instituted (1670) meetings for fellowship and bible study to counteract the
barren intellectualism in the church. these collegia pietatis led to a
religious revival in germany and in other parts of europe despite the
opposition of the orthodox clergy. he helped found (1694) the univ. of halle.


we still think she used it 'cuz it rhymes :)

peace,
chris & rachel

setlist:

1) galileo
2) welcome me
3) least complicated
4) three hits
5) ghost
6) kid fears
7) closer to fine

now, here's the contest.  i will give this cd free to the first person who
can tell me the name and correct word count of the shortest ig song recorded
on epic.

contest begins at 6:00 pm cst on may 13 (in fairness to the digest people).
any contest entries received before 6:00 pm cst on may 13 will be
disqualified!!!!!!!

send only your name, email address and your entry.  the winner will be
notified privately as well as posted to the list (unless they don't want
their name posted).

remember, the entry must be the name and the correct word count of the
shortest ig song recorded on epic records.  (i have to limit to epic because
there could be one shorter on a boot somewhere - even though i doubt it, they
don't get much shorter than this!  <evil grin>)

happy contesting!!!!!!

with only 27 more school days left until i graduate high school, this song
has captured many of my feelings about leaving and the rapid changes ahead.
i'm heading to massachusetts, while my best friend will attend stanford. the
other night around 4am we were sitting on my driveway talking about whether
or not we'll be able to keep in touch. (she's one of those people who hate
letter writing and never calls anyone back)

after she left i went up to my room and put sots on shuffle. the first song
that came up was #12. i felt completely overwhelmed. we've been through so
much together and the line, "help me forget where i've been, help me remember
who i am", seemed to symbolize our relationship.

i guess transitions are never easy. but it's okay......i'm okay.

smiles : )

the saddest site my eyes can see
is that big ball of flammage screaming loudly on the list
reading in a small cubicle with some coffee on my knee
this imperfect moment will soon be leaving me...

susi(b) calls from dartmouth the coffee's hot the flames are high
and that same ball of flame wipes that smile right out my eye
when everything is opposite enough to make you cry
or keep this whole list going with no flammage in my sight

get out the delete!
get out the delete key and lay your finger down
we'll leave the whole thing to those who want to be weighed down
dont wade the digests, there seems to be something ailing everyone
i'm gonna clear my head, i'm gonna erase that son o' gun
i'm gonna pass through this topic like i did the last one!

joni trys to calm the flames a few posts ago
and bink's trying asbestos with her bun bun on the west coast
and me i'm still trying to wade through all these posts
seems i'm heavier by the day, heavier by the load

why do we try to hurt each other through every inch of our listspace?
i must say i hope around some corner has some ig place
with every flame thrown another line on this cathode face
we'll amuse ourselves one day with the memories we'll trace

get out the delete! get out the delete key and lay your finger down....

i think 4.5 was a good introduction to the ig for me - it showed me
a lot of different sides to the girls, and made me want to hear more
about them. although i wouldn't reccomend it to people who already
have a lot of their other material, i would reccomend it to new fans
(for example, those who only have sots), as it does show them a lot
of the history of the band (possibly 1200 curfews as well, although
it is a bit more expensive for uk fans).

i have never posted a message to this group before but have had a great
time over the past month reading other's messages. sitting here watching
the snow fall (may 12 and we've received at least 5 inches of snow; have
to 'love' living in michigan's upper peninsula, eh?)

just read a review in the sunday paper and thought you folks might enjoy
reading it. it's a bit lengthy and is re-printed without permission.

"ever-earnest indigo girls tackle producing duties for 6th album"
by dan deluca
knight-ridder newspapers

  amy ray and emily saliers may never make a really good album, but they
sure are good people.
  to spend a few hours listening to the music they make as the platinum-
selling indigo girls is an arduous task. the fervent vocals. the manic
guitar strumming. the good intentions gone awry in songs that devolve
into a poetic mishmash. there's only so much earnest you can take.
  but to chat with the indigos about music, politics or the folkies'
sixth studio album, "shaming of the sun" (epic), well that's easy. the
indigos are so open, so down-to-earth, so "nice," that you start to feel
like a curmudgeon for not loving their music.
  the project represents the pair's first attempt at producing, a task
they shared with longtime indigo girls' engineer david leonard.
  after starting the project with peter collins, who produced "swamp
ophelia" and 1992's "rites of passage," "we realized we wanted to try
new things to keep it fresh," said ray, 33, the dark-haired indigo.
  "we needed to carry the load of responsibility ourselves. before, it
was always like someone was directing us."
  under its own supervision, the indigos decided to take some risks. the
duo's fans will still be charmed by the blend of ray's sweet, airy
soprano and ray's husky alto. but "shed your skin" kicks off with a
hip-hop drum loop, and employs the american indian vocal trio ulali.
"don't give that girl a gun" is powered by aggressive guitars. and the
album's first single, "shame on you," is a bopping, rocking sing-along
that features saliers on banjo and bouzouki, and a guest appearance by
country-rocker steve earle.
  the instantly accessible "shame on you" and the indigo girl's
continually expanding cult following has led epic, the duo's label, to
expect big things of the album, despite the fact that previous singles
such as "kid fears," "closer to fine" and "the power of two" failed to
crack mainstream radio.
  but top 40 success isn't an indigo goal, said ray, with a laugh. "we'd
probably try to sabotage it if it happened. it's more important to keep
experimenting and keep things fresh."
  "we do a lot of changing around," said the blond-haired saliers, also
33. "we change set lists, learn new instruments, play all different-size
venues."
  "'shaming' is the most overtly political album yet from the two
spiritually inclined artists, who have long been involved in
environmental, women's and gay issues. (they beat ellen degeneres out of
the closet by years.)
  their 1995 "honor the earth" tour, in which they traveled with a group
of american indian activists and played numerous reservations, was a
radicalizing experience, both say.
  "some songs benefit from more nuanced or poetic expressions," salier
said. but during that tour, "i learned that som songs need to be more
direct."
  the indigos are also more willing to sing from a lesbian perspective.
saliers' "it's alright" is more melodically and lyrically direct than
most indigo tunes and addresses discrimination of all forms.
  "there was a long perios of time where i wasn't comfortable talking
about my homosexuality in the press," says saliers, who has opened up in
the last few years. "we didn't want to be gay artists before we were
artists."
saliers is surrently in a relationship she describes as "very strong,"
and ray, who recently broke up with a girlfriend of seven years, says
she's single and "not looking."


hope you enjoyed this review. since joining this group i have read a lot
about trading tapes from concerts. could someone please e-mail me
privately (cbergquist@voyager.net) about how all this works?

back to lurking.

hkf right now has sort of a bittersweet meaning to me. i love the song
and it's so beautiful (and since i live in washington i love the
references to olympia, cascades, etc.), but i just ruined my relationship
with my three best friends. one i've known since kindergarten, and
another since second grade. they really knew me and could give me a
realtiy check when needed. we'll be graduating from high school next
year, and i think i was a little afraid of saying goodbye then. anyway,
now when i listen to hkf i think "you idiot, now there's no one who knows
you enough to 'help me forget where i've been...help me remember who i
am'" so, sorry to be so depressing about it, but that's what i've been
thinking.

   new toll-free hotline to document, assist with anti-gay hate

   **please distribute & post as widely as possible -- please add to your
   resource lists**

   a new, non-profit, toll-free hotline is now available to assist all
   victims of anti-gay incidents and provide them with a centralized
   source of information and documentation. the gay & lesbian victims'
   assistance hotline (800-259-1536) is a 24-hour project of lambda
   services anti-violence project (avp), located in el paso, tx. the
   hotline is answered by trained volunteers who provide information and
   referrals to persons who have experienced terrifying violence or more
   common anti-gay incidents, such as discrimination, harassment, or
   vandalism. callers may remain anonymous and all information is kept
   strictly confidential.

   "we hope that anyone with information to report will call us," said
   rob knight, president of lambda services. "anti-gay brutality and
   discrimination has long been invisible, mainly because it is among the
   least reported of crimes," said knight. "anti-gay rhetoric is so
   common that it is largely ignored. people are being taught to fear and
   hate homosexuals -- and that fear, unchallenged, often leads to
   violence. the first step in countering the hate is to report it."

   founded in 1991, lambda services is an international, all-volunteer,
   non-profit, lesbigay organization. lambda services' anti-violence
   project (avp) works to prevent and assist victims of anti-gay hate.
   lambda is a national tracking member of the national coalition of
   anti-violence projects.

   your donations are tax deductible.

   for information or assistance, call the 24-hour gay & lesbian victims'
   assistance hotline at 800-259-1536 or write to lambda services avp, po
   box 31321, el paso, tx, 79931-0321 usa. office: 915-533-6024 or

here's the music central interview, mildly reformatted to fit better,
reprinted without permission.

(imho, the music central web site is _terribly_ designed. slow as a
glacier, and half the links are blank. i suspect the thing that's
crashing out most people is the java applet on the left. it also ehibits
brain-damaged design - there's no scroll throttle, and viewing it on a
serious machine (sgi octane - it, too, is a unix box running netscape),
its images just scroll so fast they fly by as a blur.)

anyway, enjoy the interview!

------------------------------- cut here ------------------------------

question.   you're in the midst of this acoustic tour right now
          with all these listening parties, and then you're on
          to a large-scale tour. how are they different?

amy.        when me and emily play by ourselves, it's
          usually called an acoustic tour no drums, no bass,
          etc. and then we start up with the band in may;
          that's the big-band tour.
-------
question.   have you ever come into an album released like
          this i mean, doing this smaller-scale thing, and
          then releasing the album?

emily.      not quite like this actually. when we first got sent
          to epic, we did a lot of promotional stuff. but
          we've never set up a tour like this before the
          release of an album, going in and doing so many
          cities for record-company people and their
          salespeople and all that stuff.
-------
question.   so why did you decide to do it this way?

amy.          well, it's helpful to play by ourselves because we
          don't know the material that well yet. i mean, we
          know it, but playing it on stage is different, and
          this is giving us a chance to acclimate to being on
          stage, because we've been off for a long time.
          also, on a business level, it felt like it was a
          positive thing to reassociate ourselves with the
          people that are out there working and selling the
          records. you can either look at it and say, "uuch,
          all that corporate stuff," or you can try to approach
          it from a grassroots level and say, "we're going to
          be out, and we're going to meet people that love
          music, and we're going to play for them."
-------
question.  i remember in 1989, you were here in seattle, you
          played a little reception thing at a hotel suite. you
          met the record distributors, you did an interview
          with college radio, you did your soundcheck, you
          did an interview with me, you did your show.
          then afterwards you had to meet all the label reps,
          and the next day you were going to drive down to
          portland and do the exact same thing again. and i
          thought, "god, all that work for that one hour on
          stage." how do you manage to keep that balance
          between all that business stuff and yet still keep it
          fresh?

emily.      basically a tour like this, we know what to expect,
          so we just kind of get in a mode and go. but we
          couldn't keep up a pace like this on our regular
          tours where we play two-hour shows. plus, these
          are nice people, too. fans come to these things i
          mean, they may have business connections, but
          they're fans, and they love music.

amy.       we're trying to create a different agenda besides
          making money. and you can't change things
          unless you try to change them. you know, you
          can't sit on the outside and go, "oh, it's a bunch of
          business shit." you have to change the agenda.
          and we're here to say that we know the record
          label's here to make money, but we have a
          different agenda, and we're going to push it. and
          we're going to push it in the midst of all this, too.
          that's the only way i could do it. i'd be out of this
          if i couldn't do that.
-------
question.   how does it feel for you, amy? you straddle both
          fences. i mean, you're a musician with a big label,
          but then you also run a label yourself.


amy.        well, it teaches me a lot on both sides. i learn the
          value of when artists are willing to tour, when
          artists are willing to do interviews, or to go to
          radio stations, or to say hey! to people and
          connect with them on a human level. and i learn
          the value of that from both sides. but i really like
          the indie world a lot. it's smaller and it's just
          different. it's capitalism, but it's different on some
          level. i see a lot of people through indigo girls
          that i see through daemon, too. and it makes me
          feel good, because i'm trying to promote those
          musicians and help them out.
-------
question.  so it's making a difference on both levels: the big
          level, as a musician and changing the agenda, like
          you said, and the smaller level with the indie
          record thing.

amy.          yeah. well, i'm getting a lot out of it, i'll say that.
          so it's good for me.
------
question.  there's been a long gap between studio albums
          for you. and i wondered if that was by choice or
          design.

emily.     yeah, we took a year off after we finished the
          honor the earth tour, two years ago.

          and then we put together the live album, 1200
          curfews, as kind of an interim thing. well, we
          ended up putting a lot of work into that record,
          actually.

amy.        four months or something, wasn't it?

emily      to be honest, part of the impetus behind that
          record was to fill the gap of time, but also to create
          what it's like to come to one of our shows and do
          it on record. so we did that. and then we took that
          year off just to recharge, and so now we're back

-------
question.  what do you think when you go in to make a new
          record, a studio record? what's your frame of
          mind?

emily.     it's exciting and intimidating, because it can
          become anything. and this record, things went a
          little differently from before for different reasons.
          one, we started out with peter collins, and then
          we were going to hook up with another producer,
          but nothing was working out. so we ended up
          deciding we'd just do it ourselves with dave
          leonard. that was different. and we started in
          nashville; we went to austin; we went to atlanta;
          we recorded in different places. so this album was
          really like, just do whatever we want to do on it,
          and play different instruments, even though we
          may not be as adept at them as other people might
          be that's ok. do it ourselves, experiment with
          electric guitars, experiment with vocal levels and
          doubling and fun things like that, bring in bands.
          so when you start a record, you never know where
          it's going to go, and that's exactly what happened
          on this one.

-------
question.   i was interested to see you still write separately.
          i'd wondered if that was going to change over the
          years, and it hasn't. how do you feel your
          songwriting has changed though? why haven't
          you started collaborating?

amy.        because we're still into writing separately. i mean,
          we still like to have our private space to write in, i
          think, and i think our language is different, and
          our musical language is different, too. i think i've
          gone through phases where i was more abstract
          and now maybe i'm more direct and my images
          have gotten more literal, maybe. musically i feel a
          little more raw right now. but you always go
          through cycles, and you may go back to some
          other style that you never thought you could relate
          to again.

emily.      yeah. it's a mystery.

amy.        how you would define your...

emily.      my changes?

amy.        your changes.

emily.      i don't know. i'd like to think that my songwriting
          is a little less bleeding-heart, mushy-type stuff.
          but there are certain songs that i like a lot that
          were written a long time ago in the era of other
          songs that i listen to now and go, "eeugh, how did
          i ever sing that song live?" but that's ok. you
          make peace with that. you go, "this one marks a
          time and this is what i felt and this is how i wrote
          it." and now i think i feel a little more exposed to
          what actually goes on in the world in terms of
          systems and what's running people's lives. sort of
          like an awakening, reading all these things in the
          media. and i feel the presence of that. although i
          don't know how to articulate it, i feel that that has
          had influence on my writing and what i think
          about how i view the world.
-------
question.  are there any songs on this album that have a
          personal, an especially personal meaning for
          either of you?

amy.       you always say this after you make a record, but
          it's probably my most personal record, my most
          direct, my most literal, my most unhinged. i don't
          care what anybody thinks. this is how i felt; this is
          how i feel. i need to get it out: a "this one's for me"
          kind of feeling.

emily.     yeah. these songs are very personal. but some are
          more experimental for me, like "caramia" is more
          electric guitar. first time that's happened for me.
          and i stuck two ideas of songs together. never
          really done that before. and then "burn all the
          letters" is a song that i started writing in the
          studio. never done that before either never
          really done that before. and then "burn all the
          letters" is a song that i started writing in the
          studio. never done that before either just kind of
          jamming.
-------
question.  what inspired that?

emily.     well a lot was our honor the earth tour, and
          some of the native americans that we've met.
          and also that whole issue of privacy, which i think
          about a lot.
-------
question. that must be a big issue for you.

emily.     well, it's not so bad really, but i think about the
          way human beings are really interested to know
          every detail of everyone else's life. and then i
          coupled that with the injustice of having
          government agencies infiltrating your life, and
          watching you, and sometimes killing you. i just
          sort of tied those things together loosely in my
          mind, and in that song.

------
question.  you mentioned the honor the earth tour. and i
          know that over your career you've worked with
          various causes, and obviously there's so many
          good causes out there. how do you decide which
          one you're going to throw your weight behind?

emily.     well, most of them have to do with environmental
          concerns. we like grassroots activism. we like that
          kind of community involvement like groups that
          fight violence or military spending, or
          humanitarian-focused groups.

amy.      social justice.

emily.     yeah, social justice. whatever's here to promote
          equality among human beings, and appreciation
          of diversity, and is sort of antiviolent, for the most
          part.

-------
question.  i remember, talking to you in '89, when you were
          talking to the majors. you were saying, "this is
          what we want to do this, this, and that." they
          were, like, "ok, if that's what you want."

amy.        well, there weren't that many interested in us.

emily.      just one, really. the one that signed us.

amy.        and they were starting to build a roster of the
          different kind of artists that were more
          independent, or more from a self-contained sort
          of world where they had set ideas and set ways of
          working, and it was becoming more of an artist's
          label. us, or pearl jam, or rage against the
          machine bands that had specific needs, and they
          were going to say what they were. so we got lucky,
          because we stepped in right at a time where they
          were open to that.

emily.     but then we sold some records.

-------
quetion.    which helps.

amy.       yeah, really helps.

emily.    you don't sell records, they'll drop you. that's just
          a fact. there are lots of artists who are really
          important artists, like the roches.

amy.       totally.

emily.      and they were just dropped and pushed around
          and taken advantage of, and they didn't sell that
          many records.

amy.        but they are still out there.

emily.     they are still out there. we love them.

------
question.  well, what cause has meant the most to you to
          work on? would it be the honor the earth tour
          because of the whole big tour around it?

amy.       i wouldn't say that. i wouldn't say that it's more
          important than women's issues or gay issues that
          we've worked on, or violence education, or
          anything else. that was a cause that was easy to do
          a grassroots organizational benefit tour around,
          and we hooked up with the right people. and that
          tour also helps us in our other community efforts,
          because it helps us learn about grassroots
          organizing; it helps us learn effective ways to raise
          money for things, and effective ways to distribute
          it. it's more like we're learning how to be activists
          through our music.
------
question.  it sounds like it was a really educational
          experience.

emily.     i like this group wand a lot, too. it's women's
          action for new direction, and we've done some
          stuff with them. they're fun because they're
          grassroots, but they're also women from all
          different walks of life. you know, it's like retired
          schoolteachers, and mothers, and college kids. it's
          very, very diverse. it's an exciting group. there's
          so many out there. it's inspiring.

------
question.  can you ever envision a time when perhaps
          you're not as involved in the music industry as
          much as musicians, but more behind the scenes,
          other capacity type of thing?

emily.      yeah.

amy.        yeah. i wonder every day whether daemon's
          going to continue.

------
question.   really?

amy.        it's just hard. my employees are underpaid, and i
          want to be able to pay them more, and they work
          their butts off. and if i lose them, i really lose the
          label. and i'm so busy. but this year i was like,
          this is going to continue. i'll lose money forever
          and i don't care, because it's so important to me.
          so for me, that is my behind-the-scenes and i'm
          going to continue doing it.

emily.     for me, it's probably things like writing for other
          people or writing more expansive music, notating
          it, things like that. i don't know. learning more
          about the studio, working with other people on
          their projects, the production.
------
question.   and now you have to stay here and sign some
          stuff for me. i am a fan. i actually like these
          people. this is integrity in journalism.

amy.       thanks, o great internet audience.

mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

this was in yesterday's detroit free press as the "folk" selection.  it
received 3 out of 4 stars.

     "shaming of the sun", the indigo girls' sixth studio album, presents
in 12 songs everything that is good about the folk duo and reveals some of
its weaknessses, too.  songs like "shame on you" and "get out the map" are
winning aggressive rockers from a duo usually better known for the quiet
and reflective.  but the girls' tendency toward the overwrought (think
melissa etheridge, but times two) dooms the piano ballad "leeds", in which
emily saliers pounds way too hard on her keyboard for such a simple tune.
but overall, the indigo girls are on an upward trajectory in the studio,
crafting albums that are beginning to approach their acclaimed live
concerts.

that's it, and i have to confess that the melissa reference had me rolling
:)

noticed something strange when i was reading this mail (actually i
scanned a lot of it - it was a really long mail) - i could hear a &
e's voices saying their different pieces as i read it. i guess part
of it was in the way the text was written, but another strong part
of it was listening to the music for so long that i can start to
tell their voices apart really well - when i started listening, i
wasn't sure which girl was singing any particular song....

just wouldn't have flowed right; as is, the lyric seems to fit, though i'd
be willing to argue that amy emphasizes the f-word a bit more than
necessary.  i can't think of anything that could have substituted without
diminishing the song, so that means, to me, it belonged there.

actually, i saw both the 5:30 and the 12:30 show, and on the 12:30 show
they showed about another minute of soy, so the cut wasn't quite as abrupt

mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

last night, my roomie and i were hanging out together, singing songs,
playing guitar, etc.  when my fingers got too tired to play anymore,
we decided to just listen to music.  so, we pulled out rop 'cause it
had our favorite song, lwcty.  i'm sitting there listening to the
music, and i realize, this is what i think of when i think of the
indigo girls.

now, it may be that's because rop was my first ig album.  y'know, the
one i fell in love with two years ago.  the homey guitar sound and
the beautiful harmonies grabbed a hold of me and wouldn't let go.
and i wonder where they went when the girls made sots.

don't get me wrong, i love the new songs and i think it's wonderful
that they are branching out into different areas.  they have grown
musically and are trying out different stuff, which i'm enjoying as
much as the next ig fan.  but at the same time, i find myself
yearning for the sweetness of before.

am i alone here?

hmmmm.  i like this, it makes sense.  in some interview, somewhere, emily
once said she would rather be harriet the spy than anyone else.  "a blank
notebook"--she wanted to be a writer (?) i also read.  but the
madness/genius/darkness/science/violence part troubles me.  but then there's
the dreams--as manifestations of the subconscious--which play back to the
creative self idea.  freud, you out there buddy..?  the final words: "i pray
a lot about these bad feelings inside but i can't pray my way through or
around it".  *these* bad feelings *inside*.  hmmm.

yet if she's talking to herself, then "i don't want what's best for you,
where would i be when you've found it?" sounds really weird.  perhaps she's
putting her own self-contemplation back on another person she once knew and
making it into a song.

just some thoughts,
heather, who found herself singing "winthrop" this morning, in *french* (try
it, it's fun!  pig latin, anybody? ; )

well,

i spoke with the progammers at vh-1 this afternoon, and they deny the
rumor!  they said they haven't even gotten any new videos from ig, much
less an hour special.  the only ig appearance on vh-1 (according to these
programmer people) was a few years back on naked cafe.  however, they
seemed excited about the possibility of new ig videos.

dare we believe this info????

i'm with you anna, i also like sots and the new directions the girls have
gone. the sweetness captured me though, and that's probably what i'll
always think of when i think of them. i suppose that's why its good that
three are all those records out there. if i want to listen to rop, i'll
listen to rop. if i want something different, i'll put in sots. as long as
its amy and emily, i'll be happy!

ok deb, let's own up to it. folks, deb reiser and i have a little
confession to make. we sung for the whole album. amy and emily aren't
even on it. (actually that's a lie. amy plays that little rattle...tap!
instrument on hkf, and emily disguises her voice to be the "friend" on
hkf.) other than that, it's all deb and i. i'm the faux amy, and deb's
the faux emily. and so it's me singing the "yeah's" and the "i'm gonna
love you's." we do a pretty good impression, don'tcha think? (but you
caught us on the "yeah's" and "i'm gonna love you's" so i guess it wasn't
perfect.)

ok, now back to reality. :) a couple of people have mentioned that they
never use dubbing to add in their voices to harmonize with themselves.
true (i think) but i've noticed that on sys (i'm pretty sure it's this
one) you can hear amy singing some background vocals underneath her main
vocal line. i think there are also one or two other examples of this sort
of thing throughout their career.

as far as who's singing what? i'm not even gonna go there this time ;)
(although it was really fun last time. _i_ know who's voice is who's, and
that's enough for me. :)

as far as all the ruffled feathers over flame wars: folks, i'm not saying
that flaming's a good thing, or that we should all run out and do it. but
if you're gonna play on the internet (even on a generally flame-free list
like this) you're gonna have to expect the occasional altercation. it's
really not the end of the world, so don't let yourself get upset over
it. i'm just trying to give the kind of advice my mother used to give me.
you know, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger and all that?

and as far as complaints over ellen posts: i personally actually like to
read about "relevant, related" topics, and i have a sneaking suspicion
that a significant proportion of this list feels the same way. yes, i
suppose we could spend 100% of our bandwidth talking about amy's shirt,
emily's hair, and who sings what, but i for one like a little variety.
sure i could get that by going to 16 other lists, but why should i do
that when i personally know a whole slew of people on the list who _are_
interested in the relevant "off topic" posts, and when a good share of
other people on the list seem to enjoy it? for every "please take this to
the ellen list" post we've had about 10 "ellen" posts. so let it go if
the interest is there. this is a discussion list, not a regulate-what-
people-can-say list. i'm not angry, i'm just trying to suggest that
people shouldn't be afraid to post something interesting, or something
with a little controversial content.

this is how i play get together....

get together (chet powers, as performed by the indigo girls)
--capo on 3rd fret

g                                             f
love is a song we sing, and fear's the way we die.
g                                                   f
you can make the mountains ring  or make the angels cry,
g                                                  f
tho' the bird is on the wing  and you may not know why.
c                 d
c'mon people now, smile on your brother.
     g                         c            d         g
ev'rybody get together, try to love one another right now!


some will come and some will go, and we shall surely pass.
when the one that left us here, returns for us at last;
we are but a moment's sunlight, fading in the grass.
c'mon people now, smile on your brother.
ev'rybody get together, try to love one another right now!


if you hear the song i sing, you will understand.
you hold the key to love and fear in your trembling hand,
just one key unlocks them both, it's there at your command.
c'mon people now, smile on your brother.
ev'rybody get together, try to love one another right now!


[g]                                        [f]
if you hear the song i sing, you will understand.
[g]                                                [f]

just one key unlocks them both, it's there at your command.
c                 d

                        try to love one another right now!
                               c            d         g
                        try to love one another right now!

chords:

g:  320033 or 320003
f:  133211 or xx3211
c:  332010 or x32010
d:  200232 or xx0232

i personally play the chords notated above left (i.e., the ones playing
all six
strings).

the second time through the third verse, amy and emily sing much of it
acappella
and so the chords are placed in [] to denote that they are not played on
the cd.

enjoy!

subject:      (nigc)  that loooooong cd/single offer

i've just spent what seems like 5 minutes scrolling through a digest post
describing a gazillion cds or special edition singles or whatever that
someone is selling and i'm not a happy camper.  if someone has got a shitload
of merchandise to sell, can they pleeeze post a message about its availability
and invite e-mail responses?  sorry to be a crochety about this, but i couldn't
care less about reading about stuff like this (even if there was *one* ig
single offered in the post).

i'm through venting now...

no, i'm adjusting to the changes in the new cd as well. even though
its taken a few listens of sots i'm enjoying it. i'm glad the ig seem
capable of continued growth musically. i mean the rolling stones and
aerosmith have been putting out the same music for years. i think the
ig sensibility is the same just the method of communication has
evolved into something different. sounds like a justification a
little-i occasionally wish for a live all-acoustic project. i hope
that's somewhere in the future for them.

andy you have checked olga right? if nothing is there you might post a

of this does anybody know of there exists a real-life published tab

hi list,

i am going to respond to this one. i'm way offended. my quaker
sensibilities and the whole rest of me and probably some parts of me
yall have never met are offended.

>attitudes seem to be closely monitored by what i characterize as a
>small group of  immature mili-dykes.  (note to all immature militant
>dykes-i will simply delete flames and not respond). we're all here
>because we like the ig but god help the poor sob that unknowingly

okay i am not a flame-gurl but i have this thing about decency.

i have been on thislist off and on for, i guess at least two years.
(derek made me aware of this recently, i had lost track.)

i've never had anyone make me quite so mad.

now, i don't know if i'm a "immature mili-dyke" or not.

i hate political correctness. it silences people.

i have never felt silenced here, but i also probably have most of the
more um, "popular" viewpoints.

this list is about the indigo girls but it is also about all of us.

there is no reason to be so insulting as the person who called many of
us such awful names and implied virtual list fascism has done.
this little flame goes, imho, way beyond spelling, peta, or even "who
said moo".

please everyone

express your opinions

but don't be so insulting as to assumne so much.
i hope i've made some sense.
sorry i don't really care about capitali-fucking-zation, etc.
(right now)
love,


larissa the non-violent quaker bi-sexual queer gurl who still loves this
messed up list.

comprehensive...
        for the relevant part -- i am about to pack up my stuff here and
move back to ohio for a summer internship.  i will not be at this email
address after 5/14 but should be hooked up to a new address in one to two
weeks.
        when i get the new address we'll (drew and i) send around
information on the final plans for the evening.  if you've already sent me
your email address - i still have it so do not worry.  if you want to be
added to the list, look for a new message from me in a couple of weeks.
        if anyone lives in columbus and is willing to tell me where the
"cool" places are in the city - i would love some advice. :p

back to packing.

i hate political correctness. it silences people.


i couldn't shut up to this.  while i agree with much of the rest of the
content of the post, this particular refrain is a song i hear once too often
in the college english/diversity classes i teach.  "pc" simply means common
human decency.  and if it shuts up (puts in the closet?) those who would be
virulently racist, homophobic, sexist, than it's a damn good thing, as those
perspectives have been centered for way too long in our history.  my
students rail against pc whenever they come up against new and uncomfortable
positions/ideas.  it's a buzzword used by the ever-so-righteous *right* ,
rather than the political left who it's attributed to, to avoid the real
questions...like why is there still so much hate in the world? why should
there *have* to actually be some kind of concept of politeness/kindness to
end abusive language/behavior? maybe if we all just knew the chords to "get
together" this conversation wouldn't still be taking place. (or as my
students say when they're "tired" of talking about issues of race, class,
gender, sexuality, "why can't we just get along?" ;-)
my two cents,
lisa

sots was #7, of course. then kurt loder say,"speaking of the indigo
girls, and who isn't these days," then he mentioned their ppv special on
june 6th. i thought this was interesting.

there is an ad in q magazine for a company who have swamp t-shirts for
sale. here are the details, i have no idea of the colour or design :

indigo girls - swamp (xl)

"olympus designs"

olympus designs (dept q), 100 friary pk, ballabeg, isle of man,  im9 4et.
credit card orders welcome. tel: 01624 825396 or fax: 01624 825423

also in the same issue of q is a hmv ad/review of sots:

indigo girls
shaming of the sun
a new album from the grammy award winning, heart string tugging amy ray and
emily saliers is always cause for rejoicing. this, their fifth, is the
(co-producing) american songbirds' most ambitious and expansive yet: a
testament to the girls' integrated vision and ability to make even the
hardest bastard misty eyed. beauteous, literary lyricism and sheer
unadulterated passion render each track singularly stick-in-the-brain
memorable. blending folk, rock, choral and world music with unpretentious
ease, shaming of the sun revels in instrumental eclectism - mandolins,
talking drums, bouzoukis, stinging guitars and sumptuous strings - and
showcases those dazzling vocal harmonies to mindblowing effect. guests
steve earle, lisa germano, jerry marotta and sara lee surface amongst the
gorgeous, candid ballads (leeds, hey kind friend), thundering beats (shed
your skin, get out the map) and songs both intimate and epic. an album
destined to affect all who listen. and isn't that what music's all about?

take care all

heather,

actually this makes perfect sense to me (but then i have been told that
i am somewhat warped). it seems to me that, sometimes, the creative
process can be very painful and hard on the creative person. look down
through history at all the creative people who seemed to be tortured
(sylvia plath to kurt cobain). if emily is talking to that part of
herself, the tortured creative part, then "what's best for you" with
"you" being that creative part, may be to get out of the business of
examining the self and the world. stop putting "us" through the pain of
the creative process. stop examining and writing about broken hearts,
injustice and all the other hard aspects of the human condition. but, if
the creative part got what's "best for you"... then where would emily
be? how would she create what she does without that part of her?

as a songwriter myself, i know i generally write better material in
times when my life, or the lives of someone close to me, are in some
kind of turmoil. it's a paradox. i love the creative process and writing
music. but i also don't like examining the hard or painful situations
that inspire me to write.

anyhow, that's how i have been interpreting this song.

peace,

i have to echo that statement, except i teach physics and pc doesn't
come up so much.  calculus knows no government. =)

>  "pc" simply means common human decency.

no it doesn't.  politically correct means to be in line with the
poltical norms of the society in question.  in orwell's _1984_, it is
politically correct to speak only in "newspeak."  in revolutionary
iran, it is politically correct for women not to be seen in public
without wearing a hijab**.  those cases are extreme, of course, as not
being politically correct could cost one one's life in these
circumstances.  still, this is the true meaning of the term.

"common human decency" means common human decency, and if only it were
common.  other terms and concepts like "manners" and "ettiquete" have
been out of vogue, these words currently being associtated with
burning questions of the day like "what is a fish knife and where does
it go in a proper table setting?" and other elitist ilk.  in fact,
ettiquete is making a come back in a big way and, imho, its about
time.  the true nature of ettiquete is one of service -- how can i
live my life in such a way as to optimally accomdate my needs and the
needs of those about me?  that is a really good question.

now i'll start agreeing with you!  in america, where *kiss the ground
i walk on* there is no oppressive regime defining strict codes of
conduct to conform to, "political correctness" takes on a different
twist.  here the overriding political norm is one of freedom (capital
"f" intentional), basically the freedom to express oneself.  when
various groups who had been denied that expression started to speak up
and point out that they were being marginalized -- they and the things
they requested to accomodate their needs (e.g.  i'm an
african-american not a skin color, thanks) were labeled with the
perjorative term "politically correct" in attempt to shape how society
thinks about the issue (e.g.  we don't fight a wars against "people",
we fight wars against "enemies" -- its very hard to kill a person, not
so hard to kill an enemy infantryman).  to a certain extent it worked.
this is an abuse of the term "poltically correct" to label what is, in
fact, an ettiquete issue -- for example, people should be addressed as
they wish to be addressed.

then something funny happened, on occasion those that had their ideas
marginalized in turn started to marginalize other groups (e.g.  if you
disagree with me, then you must be racist).  to me this is an abuse of
ettiquete and does deserve the pc label.  when i can not express my
views, even responsibly, under the excuse that it might upset someone
that is when things have gone too far.


> and if it shuts up (puts in the closet?) those who would be
> virulently racist, homophobic, sexist, than it's a damn good thing, as those

again, i disagree.  the ideas do not go away, they fester and become
more virulent.  if the ideas are inferior, and i believe they are,
then expose them to the light of day.  let the world see how little of
these philosophies have to offer.  the kkk doesn't wear hoods by
accident!

i can't talk to your specific students and i'll take what you say on
faith; however, i have seen both sides of this.  both sides use this
to avoid the real questions.  in the us, the right and left are not so
far apart when it comes to matters of goals.  they often differ on
implementation, but both refuse to listen to the other.  for this i
find them both at fault.

damn good questions. i don't have answers for society.  the only
answers i can get are for myself and hope i can convince others that
i'm right through a rational discourse, listening and responding to
their critiques of my ideas.

hey y'all.

i also liked the idea that caramia was emily singing to herself. i agree that maybe she's singing to her "muse," or her creative side. there's an awful lot of death imagery in the song--the bridge crossing, having only one shoe, etc. i almost wonder if it's about her fear of losing her song-writing ability, creativity, or even about writer's block. i think the part where she's on stage and has forgotten her words and her cues supports the writer's block idea. anyone have any other thoughts?

as far as some comments people have made about the "juvenile" lyrics in the first verse (i.e. "you hurt my feelings"), i think it may be intentional, to point out a relationship with whoever this person is _since_childhood_. (robert burns did something similar in his collection of poetry, "songs of innocence and experience," using simple, small words and simple rhythms to reflect innocence and youth.) that interpretation would work whether she's singing to some unknown third party, herself, or amy. at any rate, the relationship in childhood seems to have been somewhat antagonistic, which would support the idea that it's a third party, but i suppose it could also show inner conflict.

hey, deb reiser--i'd like to hear what you think about this.

discussion. if you're labelled a p.c.-er and you aren't allowed to discuss
the issues behind the headlines, then the label p.c. effectively shuts
down any further conversation.  it is the same as being labelled a
communist or a paranoid conspiracy theorist.

here's another example:  when colorado passed amendment 2 barring
anti-discrimination laws for gay citizens of the state, both sides fought
over who was p.c.  the religious right who sponsored the bill said that
gay rights were p.c.  gay rights activists said that discrimination was
now p.c.  which side was correct?  i guess that depends on which side you
were on...  but if we take the term politically correct literally, i would
say the gay rights activists had the argument.  they were barred from
political recourse to eliminate discrimination.  one group had the
political power, one did not... to quote christopher: "not being
politically correct could cost one one's life in these circumstances."
but in the popular vernacular any attempt to discuss discrimination or
bias is labelled p.c.
imo, anyone who labels another person p.c. is simply being selfish.  what
is wrong with wanting the power to name yourself rather than be named by
another group?  what is wrong with wanting to right past wrongs?  i don't
see anything difficult about avoiding the use of stereotypical language or
offensive descriptions, etc.

i've been fascinated for the last few days reading people's thoughts on
caramia.  i'm not sure what i think, but i do remember reading one
interview (i forget where, but i'm 99% sure it was posted) where emily
said that caramia had kinda combined two different songs.  she was
talking about it in the context of what was different about sots in
general and didn't elaborate, but it's made me wonder.  because it makes
sense to me that she could have been writing parts of the song about
herself, but other parts just don't fit that interpretation for me at
all.  is it possible that she's combining thoughts about someone she was
in a bad relationship with and thoughts about a part of herself?

one more part i'm stuck on, who is the "wanna-be harriet the spy?"  is
that emily talking to herself, emily talking to someone else, or someone
else talking to emily?


later,
audrey

congradulations!!!  you have been hit by the happy hit squad, performing
random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty....
this is an electronic hug. you are under no obligation to pass it on. for
once, no bad luck will befail you if you don't want to or don't have time to
keep this moving. however, most people have someone they want to hug but
aren't able to in person. so why not take this opportunity to make someone
feel a little better?
this can be sent to someone who you know who needs a really good, warm hug...
old best friends, boy/girl friends, parents, sisters, brothers, cousins,
grandparents, anyone....
in this day and age of bombings, gunfights, deadlines and hatred, i think
that most people could use a good hug. so now, close your eyes, take in a
good breath, and smile.... you've just been e-hugged from someone who cares
about you!

my own personal interpretation is slightly different.  i see this as talking
to a lover.  the relationship is going badly, there's alot of fighting and
stupid arguments, and things are slowly and painfully grinding to a halt.
both parties know that the best thing would be to end it, but she loves the
other person too much to let go.  almost like her whole world revolves around
the other person and the relationship built with that person.

there are no nm dates on the list and i know the girls love playing santa
fe).  so, i need ticket info for the red rocks shows. (howdy, ya still up

    already got my ticket to the mesa, az show.  my friends there picked me

please do not leave any more of those little bars of soap in my

i am not your regular maid. she will be back tomorrow, thursday,

put on top of your kleenex dispenser in case you should change your
mind. this leaves only the 3 bars i left today which my instructions
from the management is to leave daily.  i hope this is satisfactory.

going to be here in the hotel for 2 weeks and have bought
my own bath-size dial so i won't need those 6 little camays which are
on the shelf.  they are in my way when shavings, brushing teeth, etc.
please remove them.

s. berman
**************************

dear mr. berman:
my day off was last wednesday so the relief maid left 3 hotel
soaps which we are instructed to do by management.  i took the
6 soaps which were in your way on the shelf and put them in the soap
dish where your dial was. i put the dial in the medicine cabinet for
your convenience. i did not remove the 3 complimentary soaps
which are always placed inside the medicine cabinet for all new
check-ins and which you did not object to when you checked in
last monday. please let me know if i can be of further assistance.

your regular maid, dotty
******************************

dear mr.berman:
the assistant manager, mr. kensedder informed me this morning that
you called him last evening and said you were unhappy with your maid
service. i have assigned a new girl to your room. i hope you will
accept my apologies for any past inconvenience. if you have any
future complaints please contact me so i can give it my personal
attention. call extension 1108 between 8am and 5pm. thank you.

elaine carmen, housekeeper
*****************************

dear miss carmen:
it is impossible to contact you by phone since i leave the hotel
for business at 7:45 am and don't get back before 5:30 or 6 pm.
that's the reason i called mr. kensedder last night. you were
already off duty.  i only asked mr. kensedder if he could do anything
about those little bars of soap. the new maid you assigned me must
have thought i was a new check-in today, since she left another 3
bars of hotel soap in my medicine cabinet along with her regular
delivery of 3 bars on the bathroom shelf. in just 2 days here i have
accumulated 24 bars of soap. why are you doing this to me?

s. berman
**************************

dear mr. berman:
your maid, kathy, has been instructed to stop delivering soap to
your room and remove the extra soaps. if i can be of further
assistance, please call extension 1108 between 8am and 5pm. thank
you.

elaine carmen, housekeeper
******************************


dear mr. kensedder:
my bath-size dial soap is missing. every bar of soap was taken from
my room including my own bath-size dial. i came in last night and had
to call bellhop to bring me 4 little cashmere bouquets.

s. berman
******************************

dear mr. berman:
i have informed our housekeeper, elaine carmen, of your soap
problem. i cannot understand why there was no soap in your room since
our maids are instructed to leave 3 bars of  soap each time they
service a room. the situation will be rectified immediately. please
accept my apologies for the inconvenience.

martin l. kensedder, assistant manager
******************************

dear mrs. carmen:
who the hell left 54 little bars of camay in my room? i came in
last night and found 54 little bars of soap. i don't want 54 little
bars of camay. i want my one damn bar of bath-iz dial. do you realize
i have 54 bars of soap in here? all i want is my bath size-dial.
please give me back my bath-size dial!

s. berman
*******************************


dear mr. berman:
you complained of too much soap in your room so i  had them
removed. then you complained to mr. kensedder that all your soap was
missing so i personally returned them. the 24 camays which had been
taken and the 3 camays yuou are supposed to receive daily. i don't
know anything about the 4 cashmere boquets. obviously your maid,
kathy, did not know i had returned your soaps so she also brought
24 camays plus the 3 daily camays. i don't know where you got the
idea this hotel issues bath-size dial. i was able to locate some
bath-size ivory which i left in your room.

elaine carmen, housekeeper
******************************

dear mrs. carmen:
just a short note to bring you up-to-date on my latest soap
inventory.  as of today i possess: 95 on the shelf under the medicine
cabinet; 18 camay in 4 stacks of 4 and 1 stack of 95 on the kleenex
dispenser; 11 camay in 2 stacks of 4 and 1 stack of 95 on the bedroom
dresser; 1 stack of 3 cashmere boquets; 1 stack of 4 hotel-size
ivory; 8 camay in 2 stacks of 95 inside the medicine cabinet; 14
camay in 3 stacks of 4 and 1 stack of 95 in the shower soap dish, 6
very moist; 95 on northeast corner of tub; 1 cashmere boquet,
slightly used; 95 on the norhtwest corner of the tub; and, 6 camays
in 2 stack of 3.

please ask kathy when she services my room to make sure the stacks
are neatly piled and dusted. also, please advise her that her that
stacks of more than 4 have a tendency to tip. may i suggest that my
bedroom window still is not in use and will make an excellent spot
for future soap deliveries.

one more item, i have purchased another bar of bath-sized dial
which i am keeping in the hotel vault in order to avoid any further
misunderstandings.

nope. you're not alone. i thought the exact same thing when i first heard
the song. i thought "damn! they said emily's writing had changed a bit but
this is a bit much." i also thought she said "i ate myself some more" in
leeds, which i found strange because she said she was "well-fed." oh well.

okay folks, for all of you who joined me in panic reading that post about
red rocks tickets being sold out....


i just called my friend in colorado who's been calling ticketmaster every
day, and they've sold out of "group tickets" but the regular tickets for
the red rocks show on the 17th (and 18th, and 19th) have not gone on sale
yet.  so take a deep breath and relax, we'll get there.  ticketmaster was
just a little confused.  (they told my friend they were all sold out too,
but she refused to believe it so they went back and double-checked and
then gave her the real scoop)

later y'all,
audrey

p.s. donations are now being accepted for audrey's colorado travel fund
since i really want to go to these shows but i'm graduating in six days
and really don't want to get a job.

p.p.s. the above "p.s." was a joke, but only because there are laws about
soliciting money for personal gain over the internet <*grin*>

make a decision and notify the winner (of the concert) by april 28th, and the
winners of the autographed cd by the 18th of march.

i was surprised by that post also.  i'm in boulder, and i follow the
music scene here very closely.  (i did just pick up front row seats for
dar williams' and richard thompson's shows this summer, after all! :)

the group sales are where you buy tickets for several shows at once --
they're packages.

i hate to say it, but ig did not sell out last time they played rr for
two nights.  it was full, but it was not sold out.  i wouldn't worry,
folks.  ga tickets, in particular, were available fairly late -- and if
you want to sit near the stage, you want ga tickets.  the reserved seats
are in the middle third of the venue.

i will post when i hear about the on-sale date.

ellen

subject:      political correctness (nigc! nigc!)

to add another aspect to the discussion, the problem with political correctness
is that sometimes, when trying to be sensitive to one group, you can
inadvertantly censor/harm a person who is not at fault.  two celebrated cases
follow:

      1) teacher at a midwestern school is fired for stating in a history class
           that hitler did a lot to help germany economically.  entirely true
           and easily demonstrable, but it is effectively illegal at this
           university to say anything about hitler which could be construed as
          "positive."  this is a misguided attempt to be sensitive to those who
           feel strongly about the holocaust (pretty much all of us, i hope.)

     2) student at penn(?) university is expelled for yelling at group of loud
          students "quiet down, you water buffaloes!" when they disturbed his
          studying.  this was interpreted as a racial epithet (he claimed he
          hadn't even seen them before yelling) and so, to be "sensitive," he
          was kicked out.

the questions, then, are twofold: are we really free?  do we really have the
freedom to be rude if we wish? (goodness knows howard stern does) and is it
fair to cause real, material harm to someone (taking their job, their chance
at an education) because they might have offended someone, even if it was in-
advertent, even if it what they said is factually true?  we should all try to
be sensitive, but we should be careful to be rational and preserve our
freedoms at the same time....

  thanx for listening to me preach... chris

are you asking me because i'm really emily so of course i know the answer?
or is this a test i have to pass in order for you to buy me a beer in
atlanta next week? :)

let's see, what is caramia about... i don't know who first brought up the
idea that i, i mean emily, is singing to herself, but when i first read it
i thought to myself, "hmmmm, interesting. doable in parts, but over all i
don't know." and when audrey wrote that she didn't think that line of
thinking fit with the whole song, i agreed.

i really was convinced the song was about a relationship -- a bad one at
that. i felt the song was the aftermath of mystery. mystery speaks of the
differences and caramia speaks of the trauma. after all, cara mia is a term
of affection in italian so em is obviously singing to an ex-lover. then i
thought, maybe not. literally cara mia is "my face" and perhaps emily is
using it in that manner. perhaps she is simply looking in the mirror at her
face. perhaps the relationship she is singing about is the one she has with
herself and how that self interacts with others. allow me to explain.

i know i've done stupid stuff and have had my inner voice mock me. i've
even knowingly hurt myself by putting myself through situations that i knew
i should avoid. that's how i interpret the opening lines. and the line "and
some say your genius is in the madness will you get better then will you
leave us" plus all of the dream sequence (harps please...) says to me that
she may be concerned that she's only able to write about tough times and
trying parts of relationships with herself and others. what if she gets to
a point of being healed and there's no more to draw from?

it's not so much that she's fearful of writer's block, but of being
healthy. it sort of reminds me of the line from ferron's "borderlines" that
says "at least the space between us was a space defined". the space isn't
good, but it's known. perhaps in caramia em is acknowledging that the muck
of her life and her relationships are well known; it is familiar and is
what she is used to. perhaps her norm is also loving desperate and then
questioning whether she even knows what love is. perhaps she knows that she
has learned lessons about love but still has tendencies to repeat patterns
that got her into trouble. perhaps she knows she shouldn't be in the muck
anymore, but the thought of being in the place that may be the best for her
is frightening. perhaps if she steps ahead and gets what's best for her,
the part of her that finds comfort in the muck may get lost -- and that's
the part she knows best. perhaps the song is just about the struggle of
getting healthy, the struggle between the known and unknown. perhaps that
is what caramia is about.

subject:      attention pnw listees! (very little igc)

hey all!

i was talking to betsy today, and we thought it might be a neat-o idea if
someone (well, me)  set up something like a mini-pnw ig list.  basically,
what it would be is...

if someone has something pnw-related, for example, local concerts (ig or
otherwise, like say, caroline aiken this thursday), local happenings
(like alice walker doing a reading also this thursday woo-woo!  color me
excited!!), get togethers that we might want to have. ig stuff on sale
somewhere.  basically, anything that you think someone in the area might
be interested in.  anyway, you could send it to me, and then i wll do one
big mailing to this little sub-list.

now, this isn't mean to be exclusive, or anything.  it just seems like
there are a lot of us pnw listees out there and it would probably save a
lot of bandwidth if we didn't post it to the entire list, most of whom
probably don't care that the borders downtown has the promo video (or did
have it)  anyone can be on this list.  i don't care if you are actually
in the area or not.  some of you (hi corinne!) are moving to seattle and
might want to be on it.  and people in b.c., or oregon might want to be
on it too.  everyone is welcome. :)

anyway, it would be really easy for me to set this up, so if you want
participate, please email me with the topic pnw list (or something like
that)  and include your name, and your email address in the email. and
please get it to me by monday.  that will be our little
mini-flexible-deadline.  or if you think this is a stupid idea and i
should go mind my own business, feel free, i would like input as to what
you think of this idea.

sooo, there ya go.  when i get enough people who want to participate,
i'll start setting it up and post to those how it's gonna work, and
whatever.

for anyone in l.a.,  michelle malone will be appearing tomorrow
(wednesday) at luna park in west hollywood.  someone else posted that it
would be thursday, and i saw a schedule with thursday, but michelle
appeared tonight at little frida's and said she would be at luna park
tomorrow.  i had also seen wednesday earlier.   they were trying to get
people to come out for the show, so if you are in l.a. and can make it,
you might want to give it a shot.  i think i'll call luna park first to
confirm the night, myself.

michelle was terrific tonight, and the whole show was incredible, starting
with an unannounced performance by sonia rutstein (disappear fear), who
opened with 4 or 5 songs.  then michelle did about 30 minutes and totally
silenced the place - people just shut up and sat down on the floor or
anywhere they could find room and listened in amazement.  then she was
followed by the murmurs, a 4-person group that probably really is going to
be big very soon.  their songs were intelligent but instantly likeable and
catchy.  and i never like anything i hear for the first time.    for a $3
cover charge, this was an amazing evening of music - i guess i have to
stop saying there's never anything to do in l.a. <g>

hmmm....

i haven't been reading much of the discussion, so forgive me if this has
been brought up already. every time i listen to caramia, i feel this
overwhelming sense of...something. i don't know. everytime em sings
"there's a seafull of faces and a show to go on..but i'm struck mute at
entrance, with nothing to draw from.."   i feel so bad for her. as much as
she enjoys performing, and she loves all her fans, sometimes she must just
want to crawl away from all this and live her own life.

i think we went over this before.  cara mia does not mean "my face".  it is
italian for "my dear".  the confusion is that "cara" means "face" in
spanish.  and "cara mia" is an incorrect construction in spanish - it
essentially makes no sense in that language.  i think it's something like
"face my".  i consulted a spaniard on this one, so i am quite sure.

just my own thoughts on the song -

thinking about it, i sorta feel that it's emily rtying to tell us
what it feels like when she's just about to come on stage - almost
like telling us what it feels like makes it a bit easier for her to
go through with it.....

the winning lyrics will be posted at the scholastic web site

just be joining us, or who forgot, listen.....er....read up!  we are still
planning to have dinner at applebee's at 6:00 for anyone who wants to come.
we can meet each other outside and go in together at 6, and then anyone
who shows up late will have to try to find us inside.  just look for a
whole bunch of random people!  :)  the show still starts at 8:00, and i
have the master seating chart that should tell me where all of our people
are sitting.  so i'm gonna find ya, no matter what you do!!!  *evil laugh*
;)  if you didn't get the directions before, or you need another copy,
email me, and i'll forward them to you.  if you run into some sort of
crisis on the road, or you're there early and you're bored, i'm staying at
the auburn conference center, and the room is in my name.  i've promised a
few people i would be in my room by 4:00 so they can call me, so i should
be there from 4 until 5:30 or so.  if you have any questions about
*anything*, feel free to email me! :)
4 more days!!!!!!!!!!!

i'm willing to bet it'll happen.  they (the girl's) probably have the
greek reserved for that night, but the promoter is waiting for a certain
number of tickets to sell for the 2nd before putting the 3rd on sale.
i've seen that date on at least 2 different websites listing the tour, and
i would think the sony site (www.indigogirls.com) would have the best info
on the touring schedule.

i know i'm goin' to both nights, as soon as they put the tickets on
sale...

the igs don't cover maggie may that i know anything about, but they do
cover a rod stewart song on the philadelphia soundtrack- i don't want to
talk about it- and it is a great cover (and that is coming from a person
whose music collection contains more rod stewart than any other performer-
the ig and me run a close second=) - i know, i'm weird

everybody have a great one-
only 4 days until auburn!

i did acknowledge earlier in my post that cara mia is a term of affection
in italian for "my dear".  i realize now that i should have been more clear
about my comments concerning "my face". i meant to suggest it's possible
that emily is using the term more literally and with some poetic license.
perhaps she combined the spanish words with the italian construction
(although technically i believe the spanish would have an accent on the
"i").  i think some license is being taken just because the word is written
as one. the correct italian is "cara mia" -- two words. it's also possible
she is using it as a proper name of some kind and we are all wrong :)

mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

hi all...
i've been reading all of these posts with interest ( luv to pick apart words
+ look for meaning, i do... ) and i've just gotta say i thinks the song is
multimeaningful:-) i love the "song to self" ideas... mostly though, i agree
with dawn who said she thinks the song is to a lover... and was there
someone who said she/he thought it was an addition to the song left me a
fool?... if so; i'm on that wave length.
at first, i thought e was writing to her young child self... ( "how you
mixed with the darkness at such a young age"... etc) but the more i listen
to the song, the less i'm left with that impression. even stronger in my
mind is the sense that caramia is a personal name + the song is to this
person... perhaps the same person burn all the letters *and* lmaf were
written for. the whole tone of the song seems to be about being in love with
someone ( who writes, but can also sting with her words )who is very deep,
introspective, angry + self destructive... perhaps even a married woman
involved in a public political field; a woman tormented by the pull between
duty + being true to herself. ( my theory is drawn from references like:
"send it down in your notebook my wanna be harriet the spy" and for some
reason cannot shake that these words belong with the whole set up of batl; "
something meant for your husband" and "once upon a love those words blew
free" "the government's on the phone"... "someone is always watching"... all
paranoid "yikes; what if we're discovered" stuff... really goes together
with lmaf too, huh? ) someone who is so wrapped up in herself and the agony
her struggle causes her that in her pain she is cruel to those close to
her... those who love her. to emily. i knew a person like that once.
going through this sort of emotional struggle: loving that person + being
afraid for her....wondering if she is okay etc etc etc, would make it really
hard to put on a happy face + step out on a stage in front of a huge
crowd... yikes... hence ( theory only, of course, as this whole post is... )
that's what e is saying when she writes: "i've forgotten my lines and i've
misplaced my cues, and there's a show to go on, and i'm struck mute at
entrance with nothing to draw from". no emotional reserve left for her;
she's drained...
it sounds as if emily offers this person her love but it only makes things
worse... sad. ( "i thought that if there was one thing i could give you, one
thing i could give you, maybe it was this with your head on the bedboard the
anguished repeat, the sweat of our sadness the twist of the sheets..." )
maybe the person is struggling with her own sexuality + deciding to stay
closeted or live her life as "str8" would "be best for" her ( in her own
mind ) if she's to stay "safe" in the public eye... but e doesn't want her
to make that decision ( "i don't want what's best for you" ) because then
where does that leave her? in turn this reaction on e's part makes her
anguished about her own selfishness ("i pray a lot about these bad feelings
inside, but i can't pray my way through or around it" )
anyhoo... this is way long, so i'll end it here...
love being back on this list:-)
peace y'all... kim ( goddess with the tarnished halo )

ok

i was going to just send a friendly email to lisa and hopefully have a
cool discussion, but other people seem to be interested in pc-ness, so i
will try to explain what i meant by "i hate pc".

christopher becker said what i meant.

"the ideas do not go away, they fester and become
more virulent.  if the ideas are inferior, and i believe they are,
then expose them to the light of day.  let the world see how little of
these philosophies have to offer.  the kkk doesn't wear hoods by
accident!"

i hate it when people are hateful and even more when they do hateful
things. but i really hate it when people don't say what they mean and
therefore disguise their hatred in pc-terms. if someone really thinks
i'm a "milli-dyke" or a whatever, they should say so. then i know what
i'm dealing with. it helps me personally to be less, um, complacent (ig
content *gg*) when i know what people are really thinking and doing. of
course i don't think people should be hateful. this was not my point. :)

ok.

that's what i meant.

hugs and kisses,

i just made the trivial observation that in 'fodder for the song' by ejs,
there is a line that goes:

  finger and this too is gone, this is gone, this is gone...

so looking at this line and then thinking about dgtgg...well, i don't know
if there is actually a connection between the two or not, but to me they seem

hmmm, the lines about sweating in the sheets, which seem like a sexual
reference, make me think it's not about amy.  didn't we see in an interview
that it was about an unhealthy relationship?  i know that emily said that
mystery was (which kinda surprised me)  am i getting this confused?  i
thought it was both of them.

actually, i don't want to talk about it was written by danny whitten,
original guitarist for crazy horse one of neil young's bands in the mid
'70s. rod stewart covered the song, as did everything but the girl and

subject:      red rocks tickets!!!

hey everybody!!!
i have had several requests to keep people informed about ticket sales, etc.
for the red rocks shows here in colorado.   for those of you thinking
about doing a road trip to colorado or for other listees here in colorado who

haven't heard the news, here's the latest:

tickets go on sale for the july 17th indigo girls concert at red rocks, this
coming friday - 5/16/97 at 9:00 am mountain time (mdt).  red rocks is
located in morrison colorado which is near denver.  tickets are available
through ticketmasters.  the local ticketmasters number here in colorado is
(303) 830-tixs.  830-8497.  according to the agent i talked to, tickets are
available from ticketmaster nationwide, so call your local number to find out

if they will be available in your area.  otherwise, call the colorado number.
there is still no word on the july 18th and 19th shows.  they will probably
go on sale once the july 17th show starts to fill up.

if you want more information about getting to red rocks, places to stay, or
whatever, feel free to e-mail me.  i am happy to help out any way i can.

hope to see a lot of you at red rocks!

the line  "itchy trigger" is also in shed your skin.  i don't see that as
a pair as much, but then i have no clue about that song, so anything's
possible.

and from the ridiculous obsessing over everything they say department,
there is a boot from one of their demo shows last, um summer? maybe?  and
they start talking about what they did in their time off, emily talks
about growing tomatoes and amy says "fodder for the song".

for anyone thinking of the san diego show,  i've been playing around with
the ticketmaster web page (my new hobby) and i noticed they currently
have tickets available in the best orchestra section, some in the first
10 rows, although they are in the right side section.   i actually bought
a couple even though i wasn't planning to go to that show.  so, if you
haven't gotten tickets yet, or you got ones that are far back, you might
want to hop over to your nearest high-ticket-surcharge-chargin'
ticketmaster outlet or web page and grab some.  i played around and saw
2nd, 5th and 10th row available...

it's hillary, i know it is!  :-)

it can't be tipper - emily has better taste than that :-)

i think emily says in a recent interview that batl was about privacy
issues in general, but i think it works either way.

john was kind enough to forward more info, as posted to folk_music.  looks
like i'll skip this year.  i wouldn't mind seeing the violent femmes, john
hiatt, james taylor, jonatha brooke, or moxy fruvous, but rosanne cash is
the only person i'd really go out of my way to see (and newport is out of
my way!).  last year's line-up (ig, ani, suzanne vega, tracy chapman...)
was irresistible, but i may have to plan another vacation for this august.
if i do, i'll have some unbelievable rates at the doubletree on goat's head
island for some lucky person. :)

what i wrote to the right:
that's right folks. more people should step out of the closet and be
themselves be it christian, gay, purple, a little mad, everyone should
be who they are. nevermind what society says. in my opinion there is no
such thing as masculate and feminine yet i have to keep hearing it all
the time. women can work and change tires. men can nourture babies. sex
roles should be cut up and throw out the window because they are
limiting. people go beyond roles. people are bigger than labels. they
are individuals, they are reflections of god so in loving people
completely you are loving god too.
doing my part to piss off the right!

subject:      one last thought on pc (nigc)
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

ok, one last thing and then i'll dive back to my books.  well, maybe two..

first,i've received some great pvt emails re:this topic and i think it's fab
that so many folks on the list think hard about significant issues such as this.

then, as far as the stories chris brought up--the school firing re:the
hitler remark.  that ain't "pc," that's plain and simple small-minded
stupidity on the schoolboard's part.  and if the kid called what i am
assuming were a bunch of af-am students "water buffaloes," i somehow doubt
he didn't recognize their race, i ain't got no pity for the lad.

finally, to elaborate on my original comment. (ya' already heard this tony)
while i *do* see points against the (often skewed)idea of "pc," i feel that
power plays a bigger part in these conversations than has been recognized.
it's very important to consider who has historically had the power to speak
about/for whom. changing or switching these power dynamics does not
constitute a total reversal.  i'm thinking here of how often i hear people
say that affirmative action=reverse discrimination. it just ain't so because
the power is still in the hands of the same dominant group and changes are
absolutely necessary to have any effect on that stalemate. i think of "pc",
as much as i hate the term, in this vein.  those in power have to learn that
it isn't ok for them (me in many cases) to say whatever they/i please.  on a
level playing field, yeah, free speech for all.  but the field hasn't neared
level yet.

well, th-th-th-that's all folks,

lisa

subject:      more caramia thoughts
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
content-transfer-encoding: 7bit

i've been contemplating joni's question all day, is caramia amy?

i don't have an answer.  i don't think i want to know emily's answer.
thinking about the possibility of caramia being amy has helped me to
relate to the song better for myself, as a song about a friendship, and i
want to keep that truth for me.

i'm almost wishing this listserv was an english class, because i think
that whatever the song is really about, you could write a pretty
persuasive paper for at least three different interpretations (self, amy,
former lover).  i also think that to successfully write any of those
papers you'd have to cross that boundary into some serious speculation
about emily's (and perhaps amy's) personal lives.  maybe this is why we
study so many dead white males in english?...we don't have to worry so
much about respecting those boundaries.

if caramia *is* amy, i wonder how she felt when she first heard the song,
and how she feels singing it now....

thinking maybe i should've been an english major,
audrey

ticketbastard has no clue about tickets unless they are selling them at
the present moment.  if they aren't selling them right now, then they don't
have it in their computer.  and if it's not in their computer, then they
don't have a clue what's going on.
    often local radio stations will know where and when tickets will be
going on sale because they have promo meetings way before an upcoming show.
try giving them a call (remember to request something!).


                        --sunny,

     i'm still looking for red rocks, co ticket info, anyone know?

much, and how much would she have to pay scalpers because the show is
sold out? just kidding, but she is dying to know, so if anyone has an
answer- i'm from san diego, so i don't know about anything that is
happening west of an hour's drive from the beach. :)

thank you in advance for anything you might send me!

hkf!! =)
     with all of the discussion about the meaning behind caramia (which i
think is cool to hear everyone's interpretation) i've been doing a lot of
listening.  i had caramia on repeat last night really trying to pay close
attention to the words and emily's voice when i noticed something that i had
never paid attention to...amy's incredible harmonizing!  if you block out em
for a little (which is hard, i know), listen to amy...it's almost like she's
singing a completely different song.  i love it now that i've realized it's
there!! =)  so when i start singing 'caaaaarraammeeeeeeaa' while sitting in
class, i notice myself singing amy's part now!  you learn something new
everyday!  have a good one y'all! =)

just want to add my voice to the chorus singing the praises of the
caroline aiken/wendy bucklew tour.  i saw them last night in eugene and
they were amazing!  i had never heard wendy before, and she totally blew
me away.  caroline was in top form (as usual) and her new songs are
awesome.  i'm always awed by the way she plays that 12-string!

they'll be at the tractor tavern in seattle on thursday - so don't miss
it if you are in the area!

caroline and wendy both have web sites on hidden water, fyi.

subject:      new mongrels - not dead yet - igc

hi y'all,

it's time again to put in a plug for rainy day records.  not only
is this a great store with lots of music you can't get anywhere
else (especially related to ig: they have both early recordings
vol. 1 & 2, and in with the out crowd, a cd boot from some
england shows), but it's run by some pretty great people.  fast, friendly

service, and they are very generous and enthusiastic!  i'm not gettin'
paid by 'em or anything...i just think they are worth pluggin'!

i just got the new mongrels - not dead yet cd from them.  i knew that
this is a cd from amy's label, daemon records, but i had no idea
what the music was like until i got this cd.  it's a collaboration of
artists
including:

amy
emily
michelle malone
michael lorant
gerard mchugh
dede vogt
sheila doyle
haynes brooke
dave clair
jim rogers
jeff mosier
chris griffith
clark taylor
a.c. ordover

some of these names i never heard of myself, but look at the ones that
i have heard of!  amy and emily perform in several of the songs on this
cd...
all original songs....this is original new mongrels.
new mongrels are "musicians, writers, artists from across america [who] are
part of [the] small underground music society".  new mongrels began in
the atlanta/athens music scene of the 80's, featuring a&e of ig, members from big
fish ensemble, celibate twist, and cowboy envy.

you can get this cd from rainy day records for $13.95 plus shipping.

rainy day records
1-800-636-6166
(404) 636-6166

or, you can order it directly from daemon records.

just lettin' y'all know of the good stuff that's out there!

have an indigo day!

hi y'all,

i just got a cd from rainy day records (the new mongrels).
with every shipment, they wrap the cds up in newspaper, an
altanta music/entertainment paper.  with today's shipment, i
got a recent issue wrapped around my cd that had an emily
interview in it.  it was a nice article, asking some poignant
questions, and emily gave some poignant answers.  what i
want to know is: what is the name of this entertainment
newspaper, and would someone please send me a complete
copy of that issue with the emily article in it?  i'd trade for a
boot.

if this article was mentioned on the list recently, i missed it,
since i've been off the list for a while for school related reasons.
