You might laugh because everytime I sign my name I put a gold star after it but, it’s a metaphor and metaphors are important. My gold stars are a metaphor for me being a star.

Elephants

I'm hearing: Elephants - Scott Edgar And The Universe

Why do I only care for
the ones who don't care for me?
Meanwhile other folks keep calling up
And I treat them so badly.

Am I to blame?
Or are we all the same?
Are we all gonna reap what we sow?

I guess we're elephants holding each others tails
And around and around we go.


And I'm blue
And I'm blue
And the phone rings
And it isn't you.


How do I make the ones who care for me
The same ones I'm thinking of?
I don't know where to start to rearrange my heart
And decide who I choose to love.

Is nothing fair? Will we get nowhere?
Will we have anything to show?

I guess we're elephants holding each others tails
And around and around we go.

And around and around
and around and around
and around and around
And around and around
And around and around
and around and around
And around and around we go.

OH GOD, JUST GO AWAY. IF YOU WANT TO BE A CELEBRITY WHY DON'T YOU MAKE SOMETHING OF YOURSELF, INSTEAD OF STANDING ON RED CARPETS IN RIDICULOUS AND/OR HIDEOUS OUTFITS WHICH YOU SEEM TO THINK ARE A CLEVER PLOY TO GET FAMOUS BUT IN REALITY MAKE EVERYONE EITHER REALIZE WHAT AN ATTENTION SEEKER YOU ARE, OR MAKE THEM THINK YOU'RE AN IDIOT WITH POOR FASHION SENSE.

GO. AWAY. Get a real career maybe then people won't mind you ruining their photographs and/or events.

GNW TV / Sideshow / Tripod fans...

Hi all! I don't often post on or read Livejournal anymore but I am hoping some of you lovely fan types can help me find something from GNW-TV Yesteryear! My apologies if what I am posting is against your group's guidelines, I'm happy to edit if you need.

I am looking for a recording (video or audio) of Tripod singing Tori Amos's 'Cornflake Girl' on The Sideshow in Sept. 2007... I was a member of the Sideshow Fans group on LJ (which has since become this GNW TV Fans group) and this was the "reaction post" from the episode:

http://community.livejournal.com/gnw_tv_fans/23284.html

I believe they did a little ranty-bit about how Tori Amos refused to come on the show because it was "too commercial", despite having already appeared on Rove and one of the morning shows. They sang Cornflake Girl up til the end of the the first chorus and then segued into the Sideshow theme song, but my mind is foggy. Either way, I would really like to somehow obtain a recording of this performance! If anyone has one or can point me towards someone who has it or somewhere I can download it, I will be ridiculously grateful!

I have a large collection of old or rare Tripod songs that I can upload if anyone wants to trade files. Or just because I feel like sharing the Tripod love. :)

Again, any help is much appreciated.
Thanks!

Triple J today counted down "the top 100 songs of all time". Not one of them was sung by a woman.* I'm not really sure what this means... but it honestly concerns and frightens me.



Don't get me wrong - I believe many of the songs on the list were well-deserving of the honor. They're great songs, regardless of who sung them and what gender they were. But it frightens me that of all the great music that exists in the world, not one out of the one hundred was sung by a female. Not 1% of the 'greatest songs of all time' is sung by a woman.

Is there something unappealing about the sound of a woman's voice? Are women incapable of creating great music? Or is society still inherently (yet covertly) sexist even now in our modern, free-thinking and justice-defined world where society strives for and supposedly achieves equality between the genders?

One could argue that women in popular music are largely exploited, and most female-driven music is commercially conceived aural junk-food, citing your Britneys, Jessicas, Mileys, etc, and performers whose music seems to exist largely as a platform to show them gyrating in revealing clothing, and yes, sadly this is true. Even looking back over the years, music from women seems to be a generally easily digestible and essentially disposable commodity. Yet the same ideas can be said for many men in music - I'm sure Ricky Martin would never have had the 'success' he had were he not to have spent most of his filmclips naked from the waist up- and don't get me started on some of today's rap music. The Jonas Brothers, I will kindly not dissect any further.

The counter to this however is that not all women musicians and singers are like this. Whilst there exists a ridiculously large number of poor or simply adequate female singers in the world, one cannot deny there are women out there who's music has helped define genres and affected generations. Where on that list were such names as Janis Joplin, PJ Harvey, Nina Simone, Missy Higgins, Tori Amos, Annie Lennox, Imogen Heap, Whitney Houston, Patti Smith, Melissa Etheridge, Joni Mitchell, Bjork ... Hell, even Jewel probably deserves a mention at least. There are countless other women I am forgetting, not to mention many bands with female frontmen. (Frontwomen?)

I'll wrap this up because I haven't had much sleep this weekend and am probably thinking slightly irrationally, but still. It just ... disturbs me somewhat. Not one female voice? I don't even know if it means anything, it could just be coincidence. Still. I'm not some radical feminist, but this kind of revelation still gives me some kind of guttural unsettled feeling and it's something I think I will look into further when I am not only more awake and able to look at this from a more... academic' point of view.

*I've since been corrected - I forget that Teardrop by Massive Attack is sung by a women. But still. One song?? Out of 100???? I wish to ponder this.
