Until I catch up on LJ and make a Real Post...  

Me, Melissa, Kara.

I almost peed myself when she was introduced; I had no idea she was opening the show.

Instead of going for the shirt I had intended, I had a last-minute switch to the "FEMALE ORGASM LOVE" shirt I stencilled with Jenne at Rowe. There aren't many opportunities to wear that shirt but an Ani DiFranco concert is definitely one of them. Sorry for the gratuitous cleavage shot! I also look like I am going to jump the viewer in my excitement for life.

(If you don't know Melissa Ferrick, she does the song 'Drive'. I'll post it here. But beware, it is super sexy in a rather unabashed and unapologetic way. It will make you want to write smut. Femslashy smut.)

She also does a parody of a Melissa Etheridge song; it's called 'I'm a Lesbian'. It's pretty hilarious and may also make a person want to write femslash.

You know, being a fast typist means that my 'non-entries' are pretty much entries... *Headdesk.* :B Icon explanation: I was looking on tumblr the other day and lots of people were reading the Pottermore story and going, "So...were McGonagall and Sprout totally boinking?" See: femslash inspiration. The world needs more Catnip.
Current Mood: fullFull.

ROFL. That last song made my night. ♥ BAHAHAHA.

*Giggles at your amusement.* I'm glad you enjoyed it! ♥ Seeing her live was amazinggggg.

This is the most amazing non entry ever. :)

Just saying!

Awwwr, thanks, I'm glad to hear it! I get a little self-conscious sometimes about how often I post, and how often those posts are ridiculous. :B Relieved to know they can be enjoyed!

Your posts aren't ridiculous. They're amazing.

Oh, wow, thank you! You do wonders on my self-confidence! ♥

You're glowing with barely contained excitement, and you look ravishing. The cleavage doesn't look gratuitous to me -- your shirt would have to be a lot lower-cut than that to qualify.

I was around for the heyday of Olivia Records; I remember the thrill of a favorite lesbian performer turning up in a small venue crowded exclusively with adoring women. It's a special sort of giddiness. *nostalgic sigh*

Heh. I'd never heard 'Drive' before. It's very… sultry.

*Blushes.* Thank you for that! (I'll admit that the shirt slipped from time to time, but I remembered to pull it up before the picture.)

I was telling my friend Cassia that I was excited for that in the car - being in a room with lots of adoring (and very often non-straight) women. It was wonderful to be in that kind of an environment again.

Oh, I know, right? My friends and I used to discuss what songs we would have on sexytime playlists (uh, that's what teenagers talk about?) and most of us said hands-down 'Drive' had to make the cut. It helps that it's a pretty long song. :B Occasionally I do put it on to help along my writing.

Boot love!

I think everyone -- at least, everyone who loves music -- at one time or another throws together a sexytimes playlist. A couple of years ago a friend and I tried to come up with a collection of sensuous songs instead, which required arguing about what made a given song sensual instead of sexy. We never finished, because we had such different reactions to what the other deemed sensual. Didn't matter. It was fun.

While writing long fic especially, I almost always have a soundtrack to help me stay in touch with the emotional changes of the piece. Although, hm, come to think of it -- not so much for the sex scenes. I wonder why.

I have a life-long case of boot love. I'm so sad that the zipper broke on my newest pair of Docs (I've always feared boots with zippers, and this only strengthened the fear); I just returned them as damaged yesterday. I guess now I get to go looking for a new pair of lace-ups...but I like having the boots, not shopping for them, alas. :B

I actually don't have a sexytimes playlist. Sometimes a song comes on and I make a mental note of "this would be great for a playlist like that", but as I don't have sex at this point in my life, I've never actually thrown one together. I can imagine how that sort of conversation over sensual songs would be a fun one! I imagine I'd have a lot of rich female voices.

I try to remember to put music on for fic-writing and by doing so I tend to guide songs toward the mood of the piece, but it's all rather subconscious and not intentional. (Though I'll be writing a Christmas/winter fic soon and I'm sure I'll be intentionally playing holiday music for that. :Þ) I find that Shawn Colvin often works for sex scenes; 'Set the Prairie on Fire' comes to mind.

I <3 Melissa Ferrick. Drive has to be one of the sexiest songs in the universe - my god is there ever sexual tension there. Now I have those chords stuck in my head ;-)
Kiwi Crocus: Lesbians || Mermaid love.cranky__crocus on November 12th, 2011 07:45 am (UTC)
I ♥ Melissa Ferrick too. I actually started listening to her before I started listening to Ani DiFranco, so it was really a delightful shock. Drive. So sexy. Wibble. I almost said "UST" - but I'm pretty sure it's Resolved!

Sounds like you had a great time!

Thanks for introducing me to her music, "I'm a Lesbian" is a brilliant parody. Funny as all get out.
Kiwi Crocus: HP || Happy witch hopping.cranky__crocus on November 14th, 2011 03:34 am (UTC)
I certainly had a great time! :D I recalled after I posted this entry that I played "I'm a Lesbian" for you in Ginny. It's made me giggle since I was 16 or so. :Þ

"So...were McGonagall and Sprout totally bouncing?

But of course.

Fun songs; thanks for the links.

I share perverse_idyll's nostalgia for the all-women club/music experience. Haven't had that for years -- no venues near Rural Hamlet, and even many of the good NY ones are gone now.

I had an inkling that I might see that Catnip icon soon. (:

Although one of these days I really need to remember how badly I want a Sprout/Grubbly-Plank story around an actual fest sign-up, instead of in-between. I wonder what that ship would be called...

I think I'll have to look into finding another all-women-club feel in a group. In England there was something called the "TAG Collective" that was an all-women group for activism. They had fun comedy and music nights. Between Boston and Providence, there has to be something around here! I tend to miss intergenerational women's gatherings pretty quickly; they keep me sane and hopeful for the future. Community is important. I hope you find somewhere next time you're in NY.

(I'm sure none of that is surprising, given my taste for coven fic!)

Wicked pic ;) You look sooo happy!

*Smiles.* I'm glad to hear that my picture achieved some state of happiness for you, as well! That concert brought me to a state of ebullience; I had missed that! Thank you for noticing! ♥

Hehe, I love the song. Melissa Etheridge is awesome, and the parody may be even better.

Also, the picture at 1:15? Oh yes.
Kiwi Crocus: Ani D || Collage cleavage.cranky__crocus on November 14th, 2011 03:45 am (UTC)
Melissa Etheridge is totally awesome. I kept thinking of her when I would say Melissa Ferrick (because of the parody) and at one point I said to my friends, "Melissa Etherrick." I stared at them and was like, "Erm, did I just make a ship out of Etheridge and Ferrick?"

Many of those pictures were nummy. Yup, definitely the one at 1.15!
