olivia records & sandy stone

olivia records was founded in 1973 specifically to produce and market women’s music. the collective was founded by ten lesbian feminists from washington, d.c. (they later moved to l.a. and then to oakland). while the collective did moderately well and produced many albums, including “lesbian concentrate,” a collection of songs and poetry which benefitted the lesbian mothers national defense fund, they are also remembered for rejecting melissa ethridge, who went on to become one of the most successful lesbian musicians of all time. the two concerts they performed at carnegie hall in 1988 were the highest grossing at that venue in history at the time, but were barely mentioned by the new york times. 

from 1974-1978 sandy stone (pictured above, at work) was olivia’s sound engineer. she recorded and mixed all of olivia’s music during this period. stone, a trans woman, was subjected to negative and transphobic attacks during this period from some in the mainstream lesbian community. janice raymond, a lesbian feminist scholar, was particularly vicious and attempted to out stone to olivia records and described her as a “male” working for an all-women’s record company. the collective responded by publicly defending stone in various feminist publications of the time. stone continued as a member of the collective and continued to record olivia artists but eventually left after pressure from a book written by raymond, the transsexual empire, (essentially an attack on stone) and the community became too much. 

stone went on to collaborate with donna haraway on a response to raymond’s book called the empire strikes back: a posttranssexual manifesto, which has been called “the protean text from which contemporary transgender studies emerged.”

(a slightly unrelated but nonetheless interesting fact: in the late 80s stone bought herself a computer and taught herself how to code, and became a freelance coder, which was no small feat). 

Numbers You Need To Know For DCI Finals
  • .512 - The gap between the 1st place Blue Devils and 2nd place Vanguard
  • 8 - Number of times the 1st place corps at Prelims/Semis did not outright win at Finals (1972, 1974, 1978, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2008, & 2015), so around 18% of the time.
  • 1.4 - The largest margin jumped by a championship winner since the change from the tick system in the 80s, done by Phantom in 1996 when they went from 3rd to 1st.
  • .375 - The largest margin jumped by a corps that did not tie for 1st, again by Phantom, but in 2008.
  • 1.0 - The margin between BD and SCV at Semis in 1999. Vanguard of course closed the gap and tied the Devils on Finals night.
  • .5 - The gap between Cadets and Cavaliers in 2000, the last time there was a tie for the championship. 
  • .15 - The difference between Crown and BD after Semis in 2015, the most recent example of a group making the leap.

Big Star

Big Star - Nightime (1974/1978)

I’m more than a little bummed out that I’m gonna miss performance of this album at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in San Francisco today. Of course I can’t stand the crowds, and I have to work, but the idea of hearing the whole album performed by people like Robyn Hitchcock, Chris Stamey, and Van Dyke Parks sounds pretty great. I saw Big Star (the 2000s version with the guys from the Posies), and Alex Chilton was in great form and enjoying himself immensely. But they very pointedly did not play songs from the 3rd album - too depressing I suppose.

Get me out of here
Get me out of here
I hate it here
Get me out of here

Still, thank you VERY MUCH for pointing out my errors. If there are any more, please don’t hesitate to point them out! This list, after all, is meant to help all fans, so I hope it did and will! 

Hola a todos, tal vez no reblogueen esto, pero es para hacerles un poquito de conciencia. 

Miren, yo no vine acá a subir esta foto por los de derecha ni nada, de hecho no soy comunista ni socialista, la verdad es que hoy con mi curso fuimos al parque por la paz “Villa Grimaldi” un campo de concentración clandestino, por así decirlo, aquí, entre los años 1974-1978 mataron a más de mil personas, y recluyeron al rededor de 4500 según informaciones, no está claro cuantos detenidos desaparecidos hay, pero hasta el momento eran 237. Este lugar fue reconstruido de manera simbólica, con testimonios de gente que sobrevivió a estas torturas realmente monstruosas, la historia es realmente impactante y por eso vengo a compartirle esto a ustedes, el maltrato, abuso, humillaciones, la crueldad e incluso violaciones a mujeres (violaciones realmente enfermizas, y no solo a mujeres, tambien a algunos hombres) esto quedará en mi memoria para siempre y como dice en la imagen “Para que nadie pierda la memoria, porque yo soy parte de esta historia” eso, muchas gracias.
