Textastrophe made me laugh and feel good about people who offer their services online. Not everyone’s a creep or a scammer, eh?
I’m not proud of it, but I used to loathe Natalie Merchant. My trouble with her was almost entirely wrapped up in the song “Kind and Generous,” in which I found her voice grating.
I sort of love her now (thanks almost entirely to Ophelia), and very much enjoyed this Hairpin piece looking back on Natalie Merchant’s role in Lilith Fair. (The piece gets bonus points for mentioning other 90s goodies like BMG, hidden tracks (!) and when we saw Paula Cole’s hairy armpits on the Grammys).
So, there you have it. People can change. Although I still don’t care for Alanis Morissette as a singer/songwriter. She did just fine in her role on Weeds, though.
For continual creative sustenance.
