10:14 pm - Artist Promotion

shalora
Hi guys. I'm new here, but I wanted to put in a good word for Andi Starr. She is an amazing musician, not to mention one of the kindest and most "real" people I've ever known! Her style is fairly eclectic, but probably best described as ethereal rock. Her voice and music are quite unique, though it has been described as "hauntingly beautiful", and at times compared to Tori Amos, Shawn Colvin, The Cowboy Junkies, and The Cranberries. She just released her 4th album, "Leaving the White Line", which is currently available at CD Baby. For those in the Portland, Oregon area, there is a CD release party coming up on Januray 26th. It's $10 in advance or $12 at the door, with the album included in the price of entry, and cellist Adam Hurst opening the show. Please, do yourself a favor and listen to the amazingly beautiful music of Andi Starr, which will touch your soul and open your heart.

sound_rationale is a music rating community. Certainly, we will tell you what we think, but we will also offer insight on other artists you might enjoy. We have approximately 80 accepted members, and even more rejections. It is very competitive. If you think you are up to the challenge, or have something to offer that one of our members does not, by all means, check us out.

We offer mp3 trading in something we call "The Game." The Game is when three people post a song (there are different rounds) and people vote whether it is awesome. If it is awesome (there is a difference between bad, good, great, and awesome) it will be put on to a mix we are composing, and whoever wants one at that time, gets one. Many people also just post mp3's. And that is just one of the perks.

Lost the confidence to write a song,
So I found three simple chords
And held them together with my weak voice
On an out of tune guitar
My father gave to me.
I made Elvis turn in his grave,
And Les Paul kissed my dirty, calloused fingers,
And may the likes of this song never make
One fucking dollar,
Leave it for a demo tape
To be played until it's broken,
And remembered only for what it was...
That we gave them hell

Stolen From a pretty lady. . .But it sums up my feelings about leaving the band.

Moving on romance wise, trying to look fiercely into the gaping maw of the Holidays. . .

I think I can do this one alone. . .

We have decided to head in a new direction. . .

We are scrapping the current project, and taking like five of the best, and turning it into a demo. To shop for a bigger label, and a booking agent, and maybe some management.

Then we are gonna re-track all the drums, on a new kit at the producers studio.

And then we all do the mixdown, in a small block of time. . .

Maybe track a few new tunes, so we have some more to pick and choose from for the final project then. . .

9:49 pm - Urgent

jade_faith
Hi everyone, I'm new here. My name is Jadienne and someday, I plan on being a music therapist. But, I know that this a strange introduction, I really MUST share this with all of you.

Earlier this evening, I was perusing through "Self" magazine when I happened to come across this article stated "The New Anorexia Outrage" and it elaborated about how there are a number of websites on the internet that support and even encourage anorexia and bulimia. These sites also alter the figures of models and actresses so that they could have a more skeletal appearance and present themselves as the "ideal" body figure for a woman. I was atonished to also discover that there are groups on Yahoo! that support starvation and binging and purging and give them advice on how to do it also! This article made me very discouraged and upset me so much that it made me pace across my living room while I waiting for my friend to get the hell of off the computer so I could begin posting this information on communities in livejournal. These websites and groups are inordinately horrifying and disgusting. They are assuring anorexics and bulimics to invite death into their hearts and claiming that it is all right to commit suicide. This has to put to a stop! But, tragically, the First Amendment has the audacity to defend this bullshit. Fortunately, the article gave two sources of information called "Anorexia SOS". Please. I urge you to go to these resources.

For online support and referrals, go to the Eating Disorder Referral and Information Center at http://www.edreferral.com

Or go to Eating Disorders Awareness and Prevention at http://www.edap.org

I beseech you to join support communities on livejournal regarding anorexia and bulimia. There are also self-harm, alcoholim, depression etc. support communities if you are interested. Please, please go to those evil sites and groups and try to put some sense into those people. This makes my heart ache.

1. my italian pink floyd concert and other recent incidents

i've been running ragged these past few months, preparing for an autumnal onslaught of releases from mille plateaux and
comatonse recordings. although they will not be released for a few more months, texts and images are now online (see 2,
below).

i just got back from a show in switzerland. due to alitalia's strategic pilot delays (an alternative to officially striking), the flight
from tokyo to europe was delayed and i had to spend the night in milan. we arrived at the airport at 1:00am, and sleepily
boarded a bus bound for a remote (and cheap) hotel. most people were trying to sleep. as the bus pulled out, the sound of a
cheering crowd slowly filled the bus. it's the driver's stereo.... a slow synthesizer fades over the crowd. guitar plunks... from my
front row seat i watch the driver gradually pump the volume over the course of a seemingly eternal musical intro. he repeatedly
gazes at the passengers through his rear-view mirror - is he making sure we are not being disturbed, or seeking affirmation?
definitely affirmation.... it's... it's... a live version of "shine on you crazy diamond," as recently played by the remaining backdrop
foagies of pink floyd! fifteen minutes later, the vocals kick in. the driver is singing in top form. there's no stopping us now
(literally - he ran several red lights in his distracted state). this was truly the driver's moment to "shine on" (you crazy
motherfucker)....

previously, back in japan....

during one of my routine kawasaki rollerblading expeditions, i was quickly gaining on a girl riding her bicycle - she was perhaps
10 years old. while i was still a few meters behind, she looked over her shoulder and saw me coming. perhaps due to her
unfamiliarity with rollerblades and moppy-headed foreigners in 'daisy duke' cut-off shorts, she suddenly started screaming and
crying at the top of her lungs, leaned over her handlebars, butt raised in the air, and pedaled as fast as she could. (hmm... no
offense taken, sweety.) still gaining on her in stride, i know that the problem will remain so long as i am behind her. still, how the
hell do i get past her without giving the poor girl a seizure? i decide to 'get it over with' and pass her anyway... her pitch rises...
seriously, i think i was more scared than she was... then, as i pull in front, from the corner of my eye, i catch an odd expression
of dumbfounded disappointment on her face as her voice fell silent. what the hell was that all about?!!

love, terre

url: http://www.comatonse.com/releases/v001.html
description: "interstices n (pl.) small gaps or spaces between objects" there's "no experience required" to enjoy interstices'
"easier" format. terre thaemlitz adapts selected music, text and images from his cd interstices (mille plateaux, 2000 mp94) into a
video that makes reading fun. come investigate the interstices between genders, sexual orientations, and other identity
constructs. intersexual birth, surgical gender reassignment, sex acts, and transsexual job opportunities are among the topics
processed through filters of private and public expectation. comissioned by lovebytes, and funded by the national lottery
through the arts council of england.

FORTHCOMING AUDIO:

title: "oh, no! it's rubato!" piano interpretations of devo titles
label: mille plateaux
release date: 10/2001
distributor: efa
url: http://www.comatonse.com/listening/ohnoitsrubato.html
description: this third installment of the 'rubato series' features piano interpretations of devo titles. (previous releases interpreted
kraftwerk and gary numan.) themes include devo's relationship to americana, their initial critique of the audio marketplace, their
ultimate capitulation to big business and advertising, and parallels with artists in the smaller electronica marketplace.

title: dj sprinkles: "bassline.89"
label: comatonse recordings
release date: 09/2001
distributor: lexington/manhattan records (japan)
url: http://www.comatonse.com/releases/c008.html

url: http://www.comatonse.com/releases/c009.html
description: this 12-inch tries to map the relations between comatonse recordings' socio-material agenda and the spiritual
demands of the deep house dancing public. maybe one answer lies in semi-spiritual communist commodities from the former
u.s.s.r. and red china.

note: i will soon be getting inventory of the newest release by andrew zealley and don pyle (a.k.a. greek buck), "the law of
enclosures" (soundtrack to the film by john greyson). this is absolutely my favorite work of theirs. keep an eye on the releases

My porn name. . .
Sir Lottatang

Somehow, I knew it. . .

Tonight there is a group of swingers having another one
of their "Events" at the hotel. . .

They get a little weird, and basically the whole situation
breeds jealousy. So, I end up answering tons of
domestic calls all night long. And it's a Saturday night so
the house is already busy. . .

Probably have some underage "Prom" parties too. . .

7:47 pm - I like these guys. . .

ursusmaritimus
"I can't listen to modern rock radio anymore," says David Fagen of
The Rosenbergs. "I don't want to hear Linkin Park. I don't want to
hear Godsmack and I don't want to hear the soundtrack to
Armageddon... I want to hear something with melody." And, that
could explain why the Rosenbergs' music openly pays homage to
past and current melody-rich icons like Cheap Trick and The Posies.
Their solid hooks and nicely crafted melodies evoke thoughts of
power-pop predecessors like Super Deluxe, The Lemonheads and
Oasis.

The Rosenbergs' story officially began in
1995 when David Fagen, Evan
Silverman, Joe Darone and Joe Mahoney
began playing small clubs and bars
around New York City. However, their
infamy started when they rejected an
offer to appear on record industry
heavyweight Jimmy Iovine's
Farmclub.com television show. The band
refused to sign the contract to appear
on the show stating that it was
designed for the record labels to get an unfair majority of the
artists' royalties and publishing rights. So, they circulated an email
warning fellow friends and artists about their experience with
Farmclub.com. Without the band's knowledge, that email made its
way into the hands of mainstream press outlets. Overnight, The
Rosenbergs became the little guy's hero, inspiring other artists to
take their music into their own hands.

Fagen's skepticism about the music industry isn't kept far below his
mild-mannered exterior. He calmly proclaims, "Anytime you have
something like that where you have so much money, power and
influence...they're all the same people up there and they know the
same people. So, you're going up against a goliath."

According to Fagen, modern-day record contracts differ from ones
that previous rock groups like the Beatles and Elvis signed years
ago. He explains, "When you sign your record contract, your music
never goes back to your relatives. If you're the next John Lennon,
your kids and your grandkids will never see a penny of those
royalties."

The band has even gone as far as packaging an additional or
"Napster Copy" of their CD with every their latest album Mission
You. Fagen says that the group wanted to do "...something that a
major record label would never ever do." He adds, "You'll never see
two Garth Brooks records for $15.95. We felt that this was a perfect
way to show what artists can do when they own their music."
