|About You:||IM: NothingLikeDeSun
Hello there. I am Lauren, or Laur, or Lorin, whatever suits your fancy. Or "hey you" or "E-C." I have graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a major in English and a minor in Women's Studies and one in Spanish. I am currently studying at the University of Arizona.
I also put out a zine called Galatea's Pants. But the tragically hip just call it "Pants," (much like the tragically hip just say Fruvous, EFO, DVN, TMBG, BNL, and GBS) I am trying to work up a crowd of followers called Pants-heads. Because I want to be that cool.
I first saw Moxy Früvous at the Philadelphia Folk Festival in 1999. I was there with a boy I was rather smitten with, and I had never heard of these guys before, so unfortunately I probably did not appreciate it as much as I would if I saw them in concert now. I only remember three songs: "Dancing Queen," a great song they wrote about Philly ("Edgar Allen Poe on the radio . . ") and "The Drinking Song." Although I do remember saying, "hey, that guy with the long hair is hot."
My best friends at college are fruheads, and they turned me onto more of the music. I was involved in the peace movement two years ago, and listened to the Gulf War Song repeatedly. I got all the albums after that, and well. . .fell in love! (and the sun shine shone from the sun shine above)
Aside from being a Fruhead, I am also a Punk Monk, which is a combination of Fruhead and WA9 Perfect Damn Fan, for a singer-songwriter by the name of Stuart Davis. Basically I'm a member of his street team, and I've made it my mission to turn all my friends onto the wonder of music genius that is Stu. So, ye Fruheads, get thee to StuartDavisDOTcom! Or ask me about him.
Beyond Fruhead and Stuhead, I'm also a Suehead (Susan Werner), a Dar-ling, a Sib-ling (Jane Siberry), a Parrothead, a DVN't and a Babe-head (Four Bitchin Babes).
