i have a cd player on top of my computer - single disk.  i run headphones
from it to a switch box so i can listen to the computer if i have to.  i
play cds, mostly straight through, sometimes on "shuffle + repeat".


i do this because i develop software, and my computer gets rebooted several
times a day.  the time i most want to listen to music is while rebooting.


i have one mp3, of lucystoners.

i, on the other hand, can't seem to get enough of that song.  they still
play it about 10 times a day on my favorite radio station and i smile and
sing along each time i hear it.
i agree with the people who have said that become you is their best cd in
years.  i love almost all of it.  i do have to skip "you've got to show"
occasionally though because i don't enjoy the jazziness of it.  that whole
cd is excellent though.  i crank it and jog on my treadmill.  i love the
line "to run so hard in your race, now you find who set the pace."  that
just gets me moving!  so fun!

'the pianist' of baghdad -- losing music to the ruins of war
kathy kelly, alternet
april 18, 2003
viewed on april 22, 2003
baghdad, iraq -- on a recent morning, as nurses dug graves in front of
the al mansour hospital, baghdad university lay in ruins, and the red
cross warned that the city's medical system was collapsing, two musicians
from this wounded city came to our hotel room.

majid al-ghazali and hisham sharaf hoped to call relatives outside iraq
on our satellite phone. hisham's home was badly damaged during the war.
"one month ago, i was the director of the baghdad symphony orchestra,"
hisham said with an ironic smile. "now what am i?"

as hisham tinkered with the phone's solar-powered battery we joked that
he could direct the telephone exchange. i told majid we had some sheet
music and a guitar for him. "what are notes?" he asked. "we don't even
remember."

majid had a particularly rough experience. during the first week of
bombing, a neighbor called the secret police and turned him in for
visiting with foreigners. he was jailed the next day. after the "fall" of
baghdad, the same neighbor claimed he was actually part of the secret
police. majid is terrified now.

"i think they want my house," he said. "no place is safe."

i first met hisham at the baghdad school of folk music and ballet last
year on one of my visits with voices in the wilderness, a campaign to end
sanctions on iraq and prevent further aggression against the iraqi
people. hisham and majid taught at the school during the day and
rehearsed with the orchestra at night. as the war approached, i told
hisham how meaningful the song "o finlandia" has been to many people in
the united states. at least 150 families who lost loved ones on 9/11 had
used this peace anthem as part of memorial services. sibelius composed
the melody in the late 19th century. following world war i, lyrics were
created emphasizing the common aspirations and dreams shared by all
humanity.

hisham had chuckled then, and couldn't resist pointing out the irony that
someone from the united states wanted to teach his students a peace song.
"ok," he said, "sing it for me. we can do this." within two days, an
entire class was singing an arabic transliteration of the song.

now, as they finished with the phone and said goodbye, i wondered if the
hopeful, idealistic verses might embitter them today.

the next morning the two returned, shaken and distraught. they had
approached u.s. soldiers the previous evening asking for help to protect
their school. the soldiers said it was not their job and ordered hisham
and majid to go away. they went to the entrance of the school hoping they
could somehow protect it alone. five armed men arrived. majid, hisham and
hisham's brother pled with them not to attack the school. the looters
argued, "we are simple people. poor people. soon there will be no food,
no money, and we have no jobs. you are rich people."

"please," majid said, "we will give you the instruments, give you the
furniture, but don't destroy the music, the records, the history."

"no," the armed men said. "baghdad is finished." they ransacked the
school, broke many instruments, burned the music and the records.

why do desperate people commit deplorable acts of mindless destruction? i
don't know. but through decades of warfare and sanctions, powerful elites
in iraq, the united states and the united kingdom have ignored millions
of iraq's impoverished people, who have suffered tremendously.

"here," hisham said, "listen to this. this is all we have left." he
handed me headphones borrowed from a norwegian television correspondent.
the orchestra was playing "o finlandia." listening to the children craft
their music, i softly sang the words:

"this is my song, o god of all the nations. a song of peace for lands
afar and mine. this is my home, the country where my heart is. here are
my dreams, my hopes, my holy shrine. but other hearts in other lands are
beating, with hopes and dreams as deep and true as mine."

i stopped. hisham had begun to cry.

pns contributor kathy kelly is co-coordinator of voices in the wilderness
and the iraq peace team. she has lived continuously in iraq since january
2003.

i checked the ig website which still does not list a sale date for tickets, although it seems they've been on sale to the general public for almost 2 weeks!  needless to say, the seats that are left are less than desirable.


if anyone who has 2 extra tickets to this show needs a buyer, please contact me privately at:

indigos (and maybe r.e.m.) to rock atlanta ballet  
http://start.earthlink.net/newsarticle?cat=3&aid=popmusic6200304241220
april 24, 2003 04:00 am edt  

the indigo girls will be back with the atlanta ballet next season.
the decatur duo is set to perform in a march 2004 encore presentation of the acclaimed "shed your skin," which had its world premiere at the fox theatre in october 2001.
but they're not the only georgia pop superstars being wooed by the ballet.
r.e.m. could be next.
john mcfall, the ballet's artistic director and ceo, says the company has entered into discussions with the athens-based rock group to develop a program for the 2004-05 season, the ballet's 75th-anniversary season.
it's too early to say much more, though.
"we are looking into collaborating with many different artists, including r.e.m., though no plans or programs have been finalized," mcfall said this week.
the ballet's 2003-04 season, however, is set: > "a thousand & one nights." oct. 30-nov. 2. classical russian ballet set in a whimsical fairy tale world. > "the nutcracker." nov. 29-dec. 27. tchaikovsky's holiday favorite. > "the nutty nutcracker." dec. 26. for one night only --- the spoof. > "romeo & juliet." feb. 12-21. shakespeare's love story set to dance by british choreographer michael pink. > "not afraid of the dark." feb. 21-22. a glow-in-the-dark family offering with puppets, lullabies, reggae and swing music. > "shed your skin --- the indigo girls project." march 25-28. amy ray and emily saliers return in the show the ajc called "a sizzling, defiant dose of hard-driving attitude gorgeously vocalized by the indigo girls and interpreted in a fresh, hip, no-holds-barred dance by the atlanta ballet."
all performances are at the fox, and season subscriptions are on sale (single tickets available in august); $60-$181.50; 404-892-3303, www.atlantaballet.com. subscriptions can also be purchased in person at the ballet's patron services office, 1400 w. peachtree st. n.w. (entrance on spring street) in midtown, noon-5 p.m. mondays-fridays

sorry for the nigc,i'll try and make this as short as possible. www.
moveon,org is an organization  over a million members, and is an
important part of the peace movement especially during the war.


we are launching a campaign to show the bush
administration that  they can't ignore the many thousands from around
the world who came out against the war on iraq.  especially can't ignore
the americans.


to show the bush administration we the people
of america  mean buisiness.
www.moveon.org is organizing for the 2004 election to show te bush
administration that <<regime change begins at home.>> we will not
tolerate a president who does not listen to his own people nor to
international law.


we need as many people involved as possible,
we can do it, the american people can and must, vote the bush
administration out of office.
this campaign is going to be done through word of mouth, so please
spread the word to as many people you can, spread it to the lists you
are on. there will be many ways to volunteer.


for more info contact www.moveon.org.

i have a question.  do you think the iraqi people are better off now, with a
chance to finally live in freedom, or were they better off under the brutal
dictatorship of saddam hussein?

not trying to start a nigc can of worms, but i do
genuinely want to know why shitte males will benefit -
do you mean they will benefit to the exclusion of all
others?  i don't know enough about shiites or about
the factions of iraqui people to know why you said
this . . .


again, i'm not trying to argue your point with you.  i
don't even know the point you are making, which is my
point of my query.  so, any enlightenment will be
appreciated.

that depends on which 'iraqi people' you reference.  the thousands of
dead and wounded civilians, most of them women and children, and the
thousands of dead or wounded conscriptees certainly aren't, at least in a
physical sense...

that's just so precious how conservatives don't give a crap about human
rights until it comes to the issue of making sure everyone has "freedom"
and "democracy" which usually turns out to really mean capitalism -
capitalism which will benefit u.s. corporations. i mean, heck, we care so
friggin' much about iraqis that it only took decades for us to work up the
righteous anger about their oppression. meanwhile, the economic sanctions
which obviously hurt saddam sooooo much (poor thing, he didn't have the
money to make his palaces out of solid gold) hurt those same civilians we
proclaim such love for. but hey, it's okay, we're on their side now and
that's what counts. we're so on their side that the government wants to
spend our tax dollars to give the iraqis free health care and good public
schools. funny, it seems to me that a country should take care of its own
citizens before offering such things to other countries. but i'm sure the
poor in the u.s. are living just fine off of their freedom. no, wait,
people here are *losing* their freedom. the government wants to monitor
what books i check out of the library? what the hell is that about? they
want a new law that will allow them to deport anyone (even u.s. born
people) who is "unpatriotic." how do we define unpatriotic? would we
tolerate that kind of thing from someone like saddam? i doubt it. and
don't forget all of the innocent civilians the u.s. has killed in *other*
countries (panama for example), but i guess that wasn't brutal since it
was in a country that wasn't our own. yeah, saddam was bad. he's not the
only one. i don't trust anyone who spouts on about freedom because it's
usually some sort of self-righteous crap that idealizes the mess that our
country is in.

~ 60 % of the iraqis are shiits (they were surpressed by the sunnits). like
in almost every culture men run society. therefore formerly surpressed
shiits will benefit, more so when they are male.


and to answer dave's question:
some of them want to turn iraq into a fundamentalist run country like iran.
so much for democracy. (oh if they are allowed to vote you can bet the
shiits will win. in every islamic country the fundamentalists win the
elections. look at afghanistan, look at turkey even.) but there's still the
chance for an civil war in iraq. yeah i bet the iraqis are glad that the
coalition liberated them. that's why they party with the marines in the
streets. or do they protest the occupation???

it cannot be given orders or cajoled into service.  love belongs
to itself, deaf to pleading and unmoved by violence.  love is
not something you can negotiate.  love is the one thing stronger
than desire and the only proper reason to resist temptation."
