Interview/songs on Morning Edition.
The new cd: So Much Shouting, So Much Laughter.
Why are you still here?
I'm sure I'd have known this in advance if I ever read rec.music.artists.ani-difranco, but I just can't do USENET anymore. . .
Update: I also don't do these sorts of things anymore:
No, I'm not posting my results. Because I didn't take it. So shut up.
Update-a-go-go: I think all the people who originally got me into ani (read: sent me mix tapes with a few songs [Tisha Stima] or tapes of a few cds [Jamie McGowan] or suggesting playing her on long-ass road trips [my sister Karen, Lisa van Dyke, and oh-god-I've-forgotten-her-name. . .]) aren't so much into her these days. Either too many good/bad memories mixed in with the music, or annoyance with the relationship choices (see also: the intervention scene in Go Fish, which you'll either find confusing, unrealistic, didactic, hilarious, or cinéma vérité), or not loving the kids at the shows these days, or some mix of these. Said it before, I'll say it again: I've lived too long.
Update Again: Today on Science Friday, host Ira Flatow interviews musicologist ani difranco. Or there's a rebroadcast of a very old Talk of the Nation on MPR for some odd reason. Or was, because they just flipped from a studio performance of "Fuel" to today's actual broadcast. Either I'm on drugs, or they are.
Which Ani DiFranco Album Are You?

I did like the mariachi, though.
in a coffee shop in a city which is every coffee shop in every city on a day which is every day i pick up a magazine which is every magazine and read a story then forgot it right away they say goldfish have no memory i guess their lives are much like mine the little plastic castle is a surprise every time it's hard to say if they are happy but they don't seem much to mind from the shape of your shaved head i recognized your silhoutte as you walked out of the sun and sat down and the sight of your sleepy smile eclipsed all the other people as they paused to snear at the two girls from out of town and i said "look at you this morning you are by far the cutest but be careful getting coffee i think these people wanna shoot us or maybe there's some kind of local competition here to see who can be the rudest"
