January 31, 2000:  PTA & Magnolia - The Shooting Script

First things first.  We keep many things under wraps, but going along with the PTA Shooting Script news, we must acknowledge publicly what a fuckin' amazing person PTA is. We must give due credit.  Not only is he one of the hottest writer/directors with loads of talent, vision, and sensibilities, but he's set apart for also being so down to earth and genuine.  For genuinely caring.  For being a real person. We received today "Limp" -- again our video copy and we damn well can't just thank privately.  PTA you're the fuckin' best!  Yeah all this blah blah blah, but you know we mean it.  THANK YOU publicly! :)

Everyone, how about the latest "Limp" video!  Tell us what you think.

So, okay...  Magnolia - The Shooting Script out in paperback since last week (hardcover coming soon) has PTA's introduction with many thoughts and words on our beloved Fiona.   Click here to read the IntroductionThe Shooting Script comes with complete  info including many scenes that didn't make the movie, an extensive interview with PTA, a photo section featuring more than 40 photos, and complete cast and credits.  If you still haven't seen the movie, go see it now!  We've seen it 3 times and can't get enough from it.  The Magnolia Soundtrack is also a must!  Aimee Mann is superb.

Get the Script at B&N and other big stores!


(many thank yous to Maria for the help with the Intro and pictures!)

January 30, 2000:  "Limp" MTV premiere! 

Coinciding and giving focus to Fiona's upcoming single and TOUR this month, the incredible "Limp" video premiered tonight on MTV's 120 Minutes!  Under the wonderful direction of PTA, it begins with Fiona rising from a bed and into the bathroom for makeup.  We see her choose an outfit from inside a closet and descend a staircase lit with christmas lights.  There is a table with a puzzle on it that Fi assembles.  This puzzle is made from one of Fiona's paintings also used in Magnolia on Claudia's apartment wall.   The word "angry" is visible on the bottom right corner.  She is then seen walking through the house as bookcases and fireplaces light up.  She lies on a couch watching her glamour image flash across a television screen.  The visuals are then timed to the funky drum beats of "Limp."  We have to agree with Paul, "she's as beautiful as you've ever seen!"  

Check out the clip in Real Video G2 Sure Stream Optimization, (in other words, it'll automatically stream to your connection speed.)

 

January 29, 2000:  Club Largo

Last Tuesday night at Club Largo in Los Angeles, a private benefit was held for St. Jude's Hospital.  A song cycle by well-known LA musicians featuring Rhett Miller (Old 97's), Elliot Smith, Jon Brion, and Fiona Apple.  Everyone played 5 songs and in typical Jon Brion fashion, he joined in for most of it.  Fiona gave an extraordinary solo performance accompanied by only her piano.  The show was amazing!

Set List:
"Paper Bag"
"The Way Things Are"
"Small Day Tomorrow" (a new cover)
"I Know"
"Angel Eyes" (cover performed at Largo before.  For this song, Fiona sang while Jon played piano.)

January 19, 2000:  "Limp" previewed on MTV News! 

MTV gives viewers a sneak peak of the soon to be released "Limp" video.  The third video by Fiona's favorite director, Paul Thomas Anderson,  captures the subtle soothing opening of "Limp" by filming Fiona in a dark, haunted mansion as she enters in a blue, floor hemming skirt.  The video then erupts in a fury of video cuts as she unleashes the deadly chorus.  From observers of the shoot, Fiona and Paul work wonderfully together. This will be a brilliant video! 

Check out the clip (from their last interview in NYC before the MTV Live special) as Fiona talks about overcoming the sophomore album jinx.  MTV projects the "Limp" video to debut "sometime" next month as Fiona begins touring February 24th in Wallingford, CT.

As given 2 days ago, the dates for Fiona's TOUR are out!  We absolutely cannot wait!  We realize this is a short list of dates.  We're bombarded with questions regarding when the tickets go onsale, how much they will be and if anymore venues or cities will be added.  Just remember  these are the first dates given at this time.  We're hopeful more will be added and all  details will filter in.

We're glad to try to help you in some ways, but please don't keep asking us for your VIP passes, backstage passes, and other personal requests.  We
don't handle that.

We'll try to attend the first 8 shows in the northeast, so we'll see you there. :)

The long awaited FEBRUARY issue of SPIN is about to hit your newsstands on January 11th, but we've got it for you now!  As you know Fiona is on the cover (pictures will be posted soon) with her clean, beautiful, and natural look wearing a purple knit top. There's about 3 full-page pictures all in a natural, wooded setting.

"Girl On A Wire" it's a long article/interview (about 7 pages) with a  candid interview.  Fiona at her best and most loved by us, for her pure honesty, openness, unpretentious, no-bullshit, strong yet so beautifully sensitive self.  Shall we say, a real person.  And that, coupled with her incredible talent, makes her very special.   Click here to read the entire article.
