A Dyke About Town: Mercy and Magnanimity listen to jazz

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN Contributing Writer

Sweet Cruises
Mercy interviewed Jen Foster, who will be performing on the Sweet Cruise, leaving for the Caribbean from New Orleans, November 8. Mercy and Cuteness were impressed with the music on her website at www.jenfoster.com. Mercy likes it that Foster has written a song about the Sweet cruises, entitled "Sweet":

And there is power in numbers/So many people feel the love/And we see power in each other/When we see kindness is enough. Mercy also likes it that Foster wrote a response to Katy Perry's song. Hers is titled, "I Didn't Just Kiss Her." I didn't just kiss her/We went all the way and I liked it/What's the point in trying to hide it?/You never know till you've tried it.

Cuteness pointed out that it kind of sucks how much money Katy Perry is making on that song when she isn't even a dyke. Jill Sobule's song by the same title didn't get nearly as much attention.

Foster talked about having enjoyed the support of the Lesbian community for her as an out artist and looking forward to being on the Sweet Cruise. Mercy noticed that Foster has been clean and sober for six years. Since Mercy is a longtime sober dyke, too, she had some questions about whether there will be other sober folks on the cruise. Foster says she has had experiences as an entertainer in settings where the focus on drinking made her feel alone. It sounds like it will be helpful to have sober support there.

Meanwhile, Sweet announced they are a Silver Sponsor of the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR), the nation's premier national legal organization committed to advancing the legal and human rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) people and their families through litigation, public policy advocacy, and public education.

Tucson
Mercy and Cuteness just got back from a trip to Tucson, where they caught up with old friends, Jests and Magnanimity Missionstyle, who had recently gone to California to get married, and are active in the Arizona marriage rights movement. The two had been interviewed on local TV, the day the California courts had reversed their marriage. The long time couple maintains their spirits in spite of the reversal.

Mercy asked Jests what the Tucson Gay community is like. He told her Tucson is so welcoming Gay folks and Lesbians are integrated throughout the city. He said it is rare for them to go to a social event that isn't a mixture of straight and Gay people and of both genders. Mercy thinks this is definitely progress.

The Rippingtons
Mercy is looking forward to seeing the Rippingtons at Jazz Alley. The group, founded in 1986 by Grammy-nominated guitarist Russ Freeman, celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2006. Together, the Rippingtons have defined and redefined an entire musical genre. The band has enjoyed tremendous success from the beginning, with their groundbreaking debut album Moonlighting, which Jazziz Magazine voted to be the #1 Most Influential Contemporary Jazz Album of all time. Soaring instrumentals with funky rhythms and Latin-tinged electrified guitar result in a relaxing journey to exotic musical soundscapes.

The Rippingtons have had several number one Billboard-charting albums, and also won several Oasis Awards, including Group of the Year by the Oasis Awards, both in 2001 and 2002, as well as Achievement Video, 1999.
