Right. Entries first, in-jokes second. Simple enough rule.
I have no idea where I got a copy of Fiona Apple's Tidal. It just sort-of appeared. Meaning I must have
stolen borrowed it from someone, and forgotten to give it back. And now I've forgotten who I got it from in the first place. Good thing I'm so good at losing friends; the odds of that person tracking me down to get it back are slim to none. . .
It's a surprisingly good cd. Surprising, because she was just a kid when it came out, really. Yes, 19 is "a kid" for me now. When I was 19, I would have been irritated beyond belief at this description. I am also a professional hypocrite.
Never picked up the second cd with the long-ass title, which her official site concentrates on. Liked the first single, but I think the MTV acceptance speech breakdown spazz thingee scared me off. Had a bad experience around then with a cute-but-dangerously-insane woman, and I think the resonances were disturbing. . .
I also really liked the live version of "Sullen Girl" (oh, shut up), but have no idea where the tape copy of it is. Someone was sweet enough to give me a copy, and I thank her for this by scarring her psyche for life with vagina dentata images. I suck.
Not enough to deserve cute-but-dangerously-insane women, I think, but suck nonetheless.
Update: Boy, you look through those little booklets. . .
Miss Sara Lee plays bass on some of the tracks on Tidal. If you're visiting this site, you might remember her as ani difranco's touring bassist. Seriously lost cases might even own her solo cd, Make It Beautiful.
Well, I don't listen to it very often, and might sell it. So there.
She has that whole official web site thing going on, too, although it looks like it's not been updated in a while.
