    Hey Earwicga. I am the dim ots person from Polly’ blog. I love both these songs. Thanks.
    I am a Canadian and I so see a difference between American feminism and British feminism that it so blows my mind. Canadian feminism is pretty low key. It just keeps moving along quietly and persistently. Not the dramatics of the Americans, nor the overt
    social consciousness of the British ones I have encountered. Americans are so ‘me, me’, but that is my perception. They so need their grand narrative.
    Bye the way, what does your name signify, if I may ask?
    Rhondda (Yes I was named after the Welsh hymn Cum Rhondda, the words of which I have completely rewritten to my own satisfaction)

    Hiya, nice to see you here! Yes indeed, lots of grand narratives is a great summation.

    You may, and my name is the consequence of an email conversation and some googling that initially started with labia I believe and ended up with earwicga. Bit random.

    I’ve found the original Cwm Rhondda hymn on google, and apparently it is Wales’ unofficial National Anthem! How does the re-write go?

    Well, here in Canada the beginning is Guide me now oh great Jehovah, which I changed to Guide me now oh loving Goddess pilgrim to this abundant land instead of barren land. I can’t find my book right now, but I changed everything into praise of the earth instead of that alienation which is the the christian version.
    I think maybe the tune in Wales may have a different meaning than the words imposed upon it. The tune is very powerful. Who knows?

    Me and YouTube ended up having a Joan Jett fest last night – had never actually seen her ‘for real’ before – only on a LP cover I have 🙂

    Ta! I’ve always wanted to get up on a bar and dance. Did it once on tables at uni at an excuse for a beer festival and they all collapsed 🙂
