8:54 pm - Alix Fans
live4real928 Hey,

Eh I'm new to this and I'm not exactly sure if this is going where I want it to, however I'm attempting anyway. My name is Mandi and I'm 21, and I was just looking for other people who shared my music/poetic interests to chat with. I really like Alix Olson and Amy Welsh poetry. I'm also a big fan of Ani Difranco music. So if anyone is interested let me know.

current mood: bored

12:11 am - slightly off-topic, but hopefully ok

Hey folks.

If any of you are fans of Pamela Means, we are looking for some help with some of her upcoming dates.

Here are the locations we need street teamers for over the next month or so:
Steven's Point, WI
Milwaukee, WI
Madison, WI
Minneapolis, MN
Toledo, OH
Chicago, IL
Madison, WI
Ithaca, NY
Northampton, MA
New York, NY

Joining the street team would get you 2 tickets free to any show you were able to put up flyers for, and the knowledge that you are helping out a righteous independent lesbian with a fierce message.

If you're interested, you can comment here or shoot me (her street team manager) an email at jessica AT pamela means DOT com.

X-posted a couple of places

Hi, I am new to this community and also a new Alix Olson fan. I was hoping that you could do me a favor. I am in the beginning stages of making a resourse book (of sorts for a class I am in) that has different songs that address issues such a classism, racism, privilege etc.. I have some good ones in mind, but I need more..

What I need from you is some suggestions of Alix songs(and other artists too if they come to mind!) that address these issues pretty directly...

Thank you so much. I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.. :)

Hi folks! I posted a couple weeks ago about a project I am doing for a course called Sexual Violence in Societal Context on violence against transgender people. The project is going really well...we are presenting it on Thursday, and we're feeling very positive about the impact it will have at Earlham College, which is where I'm taking the course.

We've got most of the fact-based stuff down pretty solidly, and what we're looking for now is representations of the impact that violence has on transgender people and those who love transgender people. It would be really valuable to our project to be able to present poems, song lyrics, or other means of artistic expression that show how people feel about transphobic violence. We will NOT be publishing the submissions or making them available for use by anyone other than ourselves; in other words, we're just going to show/read them to people, but we won't be making copies of them and distributing them in any way without the express permission of their authors. I'm putting this call out in this way because I know there's a lot of great poetry/art out there, and I want to make sure that I'm only using material if the author knows about it and is okay with that.

So, if you have written poetry/lyrics or have photos of artwork that you would be okay with my sharing with the Earlham community, for the purpose of connecting the reality of human experience to the facts of transgender violence in a way that folks who see our project will be able to relate to, that would be really awesome and valuable. I'll be using some of my own poetry for this, too, and I'll definitely share my work with you all, too. Thank you SO much.

If you could email me at peaceofpie@livejournal.com or greenda1@earlham.edu, that would be great. Please send stuff to me by Tuesday, Nov. 2nd, as we're presenting the project on the 4th. Feel free to cross-post this anywhere that it hasn't already been posted, on Livejournal or elsewhere.

5:06 pm - Alix Olson at Reel Pride Michigan TOMORROW NIGHT!!!!!



(ROYAL OAK) –  Michigan's largest film festival will end with a bang as controversial artist and activist ALIX OLSON will join the festivities.

Closing night for the Reel Pride Michigan GLBT Film Festival is expected to bring together broad range of activists and supporters from the GLBT community for an inspiring documentary about the adventures of ALIX OLSON. Reel Pride Michigan GLBT Film Festival's Closing Night Extravaganza will be held on Sunday, October, 28th starting at 8:00 p.m. at the Main Art Theatre in Royal Oak.

"Left Lane: On the Road with Folk Poet Alix Olson" features the lesbian icon and her musical buddies cruising in her red van across the country stopping along the way at conservative and liberal enclaves. Mimicking her live shows, Olson and her pals analyze various topics using fiery language mixed with sarcasm. In addition, the documentary shows interviews with her grandmother and mother speaking about what makes Olson tick.

Olson and film Director Samantha Farinella will make a special appearance at the Afterparty immediately following the screening. Catering and support are provided by Whole Foods Market and Absolut Vodka.

“'Left Lane" is an excellent documentary that explores many issues through the eyes of the witty and intelligent Alix Olson,” said Sean Kosofsky, Director of Policy for Triangle Foundation. “The Afterparty will be a perfect opportunity to meet Olson and Farniella and celbrate a fantastic festival.”

For more information, to purchase tickets, or to see the festival guide, visit Reel Pride Michigan at ReelPrideMichigan or call 313-537-3323 x 107.

Reel Pride Michigan is generously supported by: Absolut Vodka, Backstreet, Between The Lines, The Detroit Eagle, Fandangles’ Restaurant, Gay.com, ID Lubricants, In the Life, ManHunt.net, Metra Magazine, Park West Gallery, Victory Home Loans, Whole Foods Market, Ameritax, GayWeb Monkey, Call to Action of Michigan, Power Up Films, Midwest AIDS Prevention Project, Main North Lofts,  and the Woodhull Freedom Foundation.
