Subject: Happened Like This

Dear all,
Thanks for everyone for the suggestions of XTC songs to accompany the
play I wrote and appeared in last Thursday.  Philip Lawes, please don't
ask me to stand up naked and grin, in any given room I would be the only
one grinning, trust me. Anyway, so the play went well (Thursday 18th
November at Battersea, South London) and I asked the sound/lighting guy
to play I Can't Own Her, as it was a tie between that and The Ugly
Underneath, and my director liked the mood set of I Can't Own Her.
So as everyone came in to the theatre the SoundMan lost concentration
for a split second and the whole of Harvest Festival was played instead.
Please don't tell anyone because - no, we couldn't afford to pay
ourselves let alone pay royalties.
Oh Well, That's This Play Over.
Off to NZ a week today, unsubscribing this week, have a great time
everyone and yadda yadda blah.

  I joined this list four years ago because of an interest in XTC(and
having newly discovered the Internet I thought- hey, I'll join some
mailing lists). At first I made the mistake of making
shoot-from-the-hip statements partly from wanting attention and partly
typing without thinking. Well, I got the attention, and when you get
attention from an ill-considered statement it usually isn't what you
wanted. These days I consider my responses a lot more carefully, but
not because I give a rat's ass what anyone thinks of what I have on my
mind(I don't), but because I want to make sure before I send something
else is this what I really want to say, and is this the hill I want to
die on? Usually it isn't. So these days I get "ignored" a lot more
than I used to, and I like it fine that way. I like a heated
intellectual discussion as much as anybody, but I try not to say
anything to anyone that I wouldn't say to their face at a party. I
find the most interesting people on this list have figured this out
and they say what they want to say and aren't trying to get attention,
they're just being themselves. By being themselves they get attention
and interest.

  There was one guy on another list I'm on who provides a cautionary
example, he would keep going on about the time he served in Vietnam
and had a few other idee fixes that he would keep coming back to that
had little to do with the subject of the list, and when others would
try to change the subject and bring it back on topic he would accuse
us of censoring him.  Eventually a few of us, myself included,
politely read him the riot act and informed him officially what the
subject of the list was, and if he didn't like that maybe he was on
the wrong list, and I couldn't resist observing I had several friends
who were veterans and that unlike him they knew their manners. Well, I
got the worst torrent of e-mail abuse I've ever received on a public
e-mail list from this guy as a result of that, beginning with him
accusing me of not knowing a single veteran and making it all up and
being a pinko-ass liberal(moi? I'm a libertarian myself!)and getting
steadily worse from there. Fortunately one of the other victims of his
abuse said "Well, as a matter of fact Mr _____, I'm a former marine,
and several others on this list have served in the armed forces as
well."  Haven't heard from the guy since. The point being, when
someone makes an idiot of themselves, kill them with reasonableness
and show them up. If it's an ill-considered moment from an otherwise
reasonable person, it'll blow over; a true bully and blowhard will
just slink away when embarassed.  So, Mr Diablo, I'll assume you want
to fit in; a word to the wise, just don't try to get a rise out of
anybody, it doesn't work. If you want to talk, just talk, that's what
we're here for, and if nobody responds, you're not being ignored, we
just couldn't think of something equally brilliant to say in response,
or maybe we're just being polite.

Subject: Wes Responds to Wes

In the last issue of Chalkhills, Wes Hanks wrote:

>While everyone else in school (1980) was listening to Pink Floyd's "The
>Wall", (I) listened non-stop to "London Calling".

And Wes Wilson thus responds:

I actually had both RECORDS.

And I listened to "London Calling" far more than I did "The Wall." I felt
the latter was boring, and as a poor college student wished I had spent my
money on something else.

Oh shit! Why did I ever sell all of the cool vinyl I owned? I remember
now.  It was to pay for the final semesters of state college. Gawddamnit!
Thus, on vinyl I no longer have any Clash. Or Elvis
Costello. Pistols. Vibrators.  Richard Hell and the Voidoids.

(He lets out a sigh as he wonders where the years have gone, and lights a
cigarette in his dimly lit room.) I had it all. I once had The Jam's "This
is The Modern World" on vinyl. I once had a great mod album called "The
Low Numbers." I'll never hear that great track from that album called "The
Prom Bombed." I had a lot of punk/new wave stuff, on colored vinyl. All
gone, all sold, except for some 7'' (including such gems as "Ca Plane Pour
Moi" by Plastic Bertrand and "Dreaming" by Blondie. All in wonderfully
imperfect, substandard vinyl, like the kind you'd use to make black pocket
combs). I see that some of these albums have been re-released. But the
moment has passed.

So, as I climb the stairs of the subway toward the light, I see the
leather-jacketed punks, some of whom remind me of friends I used to have
in college. And I want to say something to them sometime. "Et tu, Sid and
Nancy?"

But I won't rock no boats.

Wes

Subject: Meet Me on the Other Side

Yello,

It's that time of the month/year/decade/century again. I'd like to
announce the release of "Meet Me on the Other Side" -- a cd compiling
songs written specifically for and about the new millennium. It's compiled
by Toby Thomas (who I believe may be Chalkhillian) and features songs in a
variety of styles and genres.  Everything from rock to pop to dreamy
instrumentals and everything in between. Fellow Chalkhillbillies Jim
Smart, Becki di Gregorio and yours truly are all represented on the disc.
Take a gander over to www.silvermoonmusic.com and check it out.  You can
also hear my song "When I Was Your Age" on www.mp3.com/mitchfriedman and
Jim Smart's title track "The Other Side" at www.mp3.com/3Tripper

Enjoy!

Mitch

p.s. Totally off the subject, I highly recommend the new film "Being John
Malkovich". It's unusual, very creative and funny . . . much like XTC.

Please...don't.  Don't assume my tastes.  Don't assume that I like being
preached to.  Don't assume that I'm dull and that I haven't thought about
the arguments you make.

Just don't.

(Sorry about this-- I'm touchy about proselytizing of any kind, whether it
regards my faith, my eating habits, anything, even when on issues I agree
with, and especially in a forum where it does not belong and was not asked
for.)

hm, I want to lighten this up a bit (I hate being serious on here, it seems
so ridiculous...)--

when I was 12 I had a dream that Andy Partridge and I went to Club MTV.
Then he shrunk down to about a foot tall and got into a large aquarium and

i wasn't apportioning blame, i was simply stating that, sometimes, when we
say something in a textual forum such as this, it can be difficult to
understand the context in which it was intended. a little clarity is all it
takes.

i don't want to fight either (_way_ too much of that in here lately!), i
don't think you're a jerk, your apology is accepted (although, really,
unnecessary), so now let's move on and enjoy the music of xtc. ok?

Subject: To turk or not to turk: Truth Revealed

You wronte:
" There you go again " , Satanas . Thanksgiving is a public celebration in
acknowledgment of divine favor ; not a " holiday that celebrates the murder
of turks ( turkeys ) " .

And I say:
I did not say turkeys, I said TURKS!  Learn some history, then come back
with an intellegent response.

You wronte:
Now I know the word divine is not in your vocabulary

And I say:
Oh, so now your god, as you have the ability to say what is and is not in my
vocabulary?  Not very Christian of you!

You wrote:
as you did with your little " joke " re: Christians killing you because of
your alias - your apparent ignorance .

And I say:
That was Andy's Comment from the book Song Stories, as I have said this 5
times before!  I was making a joke in reference to the book!!!  Who are the
people that bomb abortion clinics anyway?  Never once heard of an athiest
doing that!!!

You wrote:
Other than for use as food , a turkey has absolutely no reason for existence
on this planet

And I say:
You are right!  That is why man should nor reproduce turkeys for mans own
selfish impulses!

You wrote:
They were put on this earth to be eaten by us - the smartest
monkeys .

And I say:
Oh, so your God now?  You determin who is the "smartest Monkey?"  How are
you mesuring this data?

You wrote:
You said Thanksgiving was " a holiday that celebrates the murder of turks "
, and you " celebrate the holiday " with your in-laws ???

And I say:
Millions of people cellebrate Xmas though they are not Christians! (in
reality, Xmas is a Pegan holiday actually).  I cellebrate eating a table
with family, not the meaning!

You wrote:

I hope your Philippino friends are in the Philippines and not America !
Domestic pets should not be on anyone's menu in the land of plenty.

And I say:
No, they live in the US, and they have every right as you to eat what they
eat!  Its completly legal as long as its in their culture!  Its also legal
to sacrifice animals for spiritaul rituals!  So, how come all of a sudden
its wrong they eat dogs but its ok to eat other animals?!  Many people have
pigs as pets, so whats wrong with eating them?  Or horses, or rabbits?  Your
argument is whats called a "Slippery Slope"

You wrote:
>there is no way it is going to taste just like turkey ( and a good thing
too
! ) .

And I say:
Its still good, and its better on the environment and our bodies!
How much land and water is waisted on Live Stock?  Really, reseach this and
you will be quite suprised to learn the statistics.  Dont take my word for
it, see for your self.  You do know how to do reserch dont you?

And You so gracefully wrote:
What is a vegetarian ( you alluded to the fact you are a vegetarian when you
said " no offence to non-vegetarians out there ... " ) doing sampling the
culinary delights of Jack InThe Box and Taco Bell ?

And I say:
Just because I am vegetarian, does not mean I was my whole life.  If you
would like to know, I became vegetarian after working at my college at a
burger place.  So, I saw what goes on and it disgusted me.

In good Christian Faith and Spirit, while walking in the likes of Jesus you
so religiously said:

Satanas , you really do ASK for it . Even your friend Charlie Buck is
dis-owning you :

And I say:
Wow, that was fair, bring up that in an argument!  If it were true, I would
really be hurt (is that how Christians are supposed to treat others?) But
since its not, and Malcolm is my closest friend and employee, I means
nothing.

Lastly I say:
Seek your argument furthur.  If your a Christian, than act like it.  When I
was a Christian (yes I ate meat and was even a Christian!) I was really a
Christian.  I did not try to put people down while holding up my belief in
god.  Its people like you though that I must thank really.  Its because of
you I was enlightened to see the truth.  Thanks!
