to me, this song is about 2 partners, lovers, whatever, breaking up. instead
of constructing or building the relationship, they are deconstructing it.
imagery and descriptions throughout the song refer to agruments that end in
confusion, nothing being fixed. to me this song is about the ending of a
relationship.
as for collecting you, i don't know yet. :)
thanks for the thread,

sarah,
i don't know. we don't discuss to much on here about the girls' personal
lives. i don't think emily is currently going through a break up. but
obviously, emily has broken up with her lovers before. i would be interested
in knowing when exactly she wrote this song, what year etc.
i love this song actually. i totally can relate to the ending of
relationships. something i am not too proud of. but we have all been there.

hey all, i think emily is struggling with mid life and life choices in
a big way just like all women do in our late 30's (men in 40's). lots
of general dissatisfaction and not feeling comfortable in your skin.
she is a very metaphorical writer and i see her using a lot of this
here. also, sometimes you have to take emily's lyrics as a part of the
whole, but it's hard to take one line and figure out just what that
meant. i especially saw this in caramia for example. anyway back to
lurk mode.
bonnie
listening to emily's songs on become you, i just keep wondering if she's
in
the midst of a break up. anyone know?
and no, i'm not shopping for intimate details, i just wondered if that
was a
motivating factor, because all of her songs seem to be part of an 'i'm
feeling disillusioned/dissatisfied with this relationship' cycle.

i was wondering the exact same thing. almost all of emily's songs seem so moody and sad. i think she wrote "she's saving me" because people were probably worried that all of her material was so downbeat.
who is annie roboff? emily credits her as a co-songwriter on "hope alone?" does anyone know? can i ask that question without being flamed for prying into "personal territory"?

since i've been on the phone all day trying to find sponsors and advertisers
for this show i'm putting on that i've mentioned on the list already, i
thought i might as well try to find people here. sorry to take up space on a
personal endeavpr but this list has always been a really great source for
making conections, and for support. just thought i'd try. delete at will.
author's background:

my name is sarah t. rosenblum. i am wisconsin lesbian/feminist
writer/director/ actor. having earned a b.a. in women's studies from the
university of wisconsin madison, i have moved back to milwaukee. i am
committed to the creation and presentation of quality feminist theatre. to
this end, i am staging a milwaukee production of one of my plays, "girl on
girl action: an evening of theoretical theatre." this production will take
place at the miramar, on august 2nd and 3rd 2002, provided i am able to raise
sufficient funds.

show synopsis:

"girl on girl action" is a three-piece show which debuted in may 2000, in
madison, wisconsin at the feminist bookstore, "a room of one's own."
each third of the show focuses on a slightly different aspect of the show's
overriding theme: the intersection of lesbianism and feminism.
the opening monologue grapples with the essentially lesbian/feminist question
of desire vs. objectification, asking, "is it possible to desire a woman
without objectifying her and thus undermining one's feminist integrity.
the second dialogue comes to terms with non-pc aspects of lesbian sexuality,
and discusses the feminist tendency to embrace feminist art with no regard to
the quality of said art.
the last scene is much more theatrical than the first two, and explores the
power imbalance inherent in intergenerational relationships.
"girl on girl action" is unique in that i take on theoretical, potentially
incredibly intellectual topics, more often dealt with in a women's studies
seminar, or some equally isolated feminist group. with clever dialogue, stage
lights, and well-formed characters, i inject the issues presented with
theatrical flair. this makes the concepts approachable and therefore
accessible to a wider audience.


plea for funds

in order to cover the costs of this event, i am inviting companies,
organizations and individuals to place ads in a program that will be
distributed at the show. ad rates from $50-$150 are available. if you are not
interested in placing an ad, perhaps you would like to be credited in the
program as a sponsor. there are four levels of sponsorship:
$25-50
$100-200
$300-400
$500 and up
.

i am very excited about using my play as a means toward the cultivation of an
artistic feminist community.

thank you.

hi all!
sorry about the nigc.
does anybody happen to know the guitarists name who was in heather
nova's band on her last tour (at least she was in the band during the
european leg of the tour...).
long blonde hair, very good player, seemed kinda shy as if she hadn't
been performing on many gigs this size before, yet she came across
very well, in my eyes she kinda stole the show;).
anyhoo, saw some footage of one of the european concerts last night
and that reminded me to finally ask about her here; couldn't find any info
online.
thanks in advance.
be well,
kathrin

by review printed in chicago tribunes's march 31, 2002 paper plagiarized
with no permission whatsoever:
indigo girls
become you (epic)
after amy ray's 2001 solo album, "stag," confirmed she's as much a punk
rocker as a folk singer, there was talk of a stripped-down, all-acoustic
indigo girls reunion. "become you" doesn't quite live up to that promise,
with its semi-plugged arrangements and polished production, but it pulls
back from the cluttered arrangements that weighed down the duo's more recent
albums.
there's a renewed clarity to the songcraft, and the melodies are
stronger than they have been in years. but it's a mixed blessing. emily
saliers continues to play the earnest would-be poet to ray's roots-rocking
hellraiser, though the duo doesn't so much exploit the tension between their
styles as arrive at a compromise.
"become you" drives hard on ray's "yield" and "bitterroot," but
otherwise settles for mere prettiness.--greg kot

interesting review! sounds like a lot of what i've read on the list even
though i do find it hard to respect anyone's opinion who uses the word
songcraft in a review.
