CSW Noho
Hello all. I've had a series of random run-ins with CSWers in Noho of late, and now I'm curious. How many of you are there in the valley, and who? I live here now. I graduated from Smith (but I promise, I never turned into a tea party Smithie) Spring 07, and I'm sticking, at least for a while, working with horses, and hopefully kids, and maybe dogs. Seek me out; a good solid CSW conversation is always nice, and it would be great to be around people who aren't afraid to speak up or draw. They seem rather hard to find in the outside world, I'm noticing.
Be well to all. I think of CSW, and consequently its individuals, often. Lots of luck in this coming year.

Trying to find a friend.
I am looking for Astrid Göttsch.... anyone remember her?

She was a friend when I was at CSW, and I graduated in '98. Unfortunately we lost touch after I moved all over the world. She's German, as am I. She was very much into dancing, with pretty Swedish blonde hair.

The mailing adress I received from CSW from her parents in Germany unfortunately is not up-to-date anymore, and I also couldn't find her at the college I thought she went to. Any help is appreciated, thank you!!!

Hey does anyone have contact info for Orlando Leyba? Or Karl Fisher, Tom Evans, or Anne Rearick for that matter?
-I Was The Goth Girl In High School, '01


20/20 Hindsight:

I was telling someone about high school
and realized that there was nothing I could say to sum it up
except that suddenly I had a name
and no one threw rocks at me anymore
a lump of gratitude came to my throat
a sense of thanks so profound
that 6 years later
I still can't talk about it.

-the riot-folk collective somewhat hastily presents...

Friday, December 15th
@ The Community Church of Boston
565 Boylston Street, Boston MA
(copley square t-stop on the green line.)

7:00pm. $5-15 sliding scale suggested donation.
(no one will be turned away cuz they ain't got no cash!)

the following artists will be MAKING FOLK A THREAT AGAIN!

*ADHAMH ROLAND* - queer-ass riot-folk from st. louis! more info down below!

*EVAN GREER, BRIDGET SPROOLS & BEN LUCAL* - our band doesn't have a name yet, but it's gonna be awesome! we trade off on a plethora of acoustic instruments and sing songs about climate change, schools and gender, polar bears, and not surrendering.

*AND MORE TBA!!! (don't you hate it when they say that?)

Contact: evan@riotfolk.org -or- 978-852-6457 for more info.


-his music is free at www.riotfolk.org-

Adhamh is a folksingin', bike-ridin', homebrewin', veggie-gardening, activist tranny boi riot-folker from the midwestern paradise of Saint Louis, MO. His musically powerful and lyrically radical songs address topics from gender politics to gentrification, and his unique and punchy guitar style will keep you entertained for an evening all by itself.

Adhamh is best known for his queerly bike-related shenanigans, including three recent long-distance musical bike tours. In the summer of '05, he and a fellow musical activist rode 1,320 car-free miles and played 15 different venues across the Northwest. He is also a founding member of the Riot-Folk! Collective, an anti-profit mutual aid collective of radical artists and musicians who are hellbent on MAKING FOLK A THREAT AGAIN! They make music to provoke, educate, heal, and inspire.

When not on his bike or rocking out, Adhamh might be found in St. Louis working with kids at the Community Arts and Media Project (CAMP), serving Food Not Bombs, or strutting his stuff with the St. Louis Burlesque Troup, Benchpress Burlesque.

As with all Riot-Folk! musicians, his songs are available for free download online at www.riotfolk.org

I'm not sure if people had already heard, but I learned tonight of the death of CSW alumna Les Mastenbrook on June 17 in a car accident in Cheyenne, Wyoming. She was 24. A funeral was held near her mother's home in Concord, MA this week. She grew up in Concord and graduated from CSW in June 2000. She was also an accomplished photographer with a wonderful website featuring her work.

Her obituary in the Concord Journal is here. Text behind cut in the event of the article going off the site.

If people wish to leave memories in the comments of this post, it might be nice to hear people's recollections of her.

I am sorry to bear such sad news.

I actually stole this from someone else's journal
but they seem like generic and interesting enough questions that I really, really wanted to know the answers.

1) what did you get out of your high school experience? big lessons, major impressions, whatever.
2) if i were to ask you to characterize the school, explain it to me, what would you say? not asking if the principal you had is a bad person, i'm asking about the entire school, community, academics, the whole package rolled together

NYC role call
So I suck at keeping in touch...yet I find that CSW keeps popping up in my head...I graduated in '01, went to the Savannah College of Art and Design, and am now in New York working here and freelancing as a camera assistant. So are there any other CSWers out there who made it to New York? If so, where are you and what are you up to these days? It would be crazy to meet up.

Hey y'all, I thought this might interest some people. Or not. Anyways.

I produce and host a weekly internet radio show at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It runs every tuesday night 6-7pm CENTRAL time (So that'd make it 7-8pm eastern time) on freeradiosaic.org and it's called "Memoirs of a Gaysha". It's super fun and I play all sorts of crazy stuff (mostly in the hip-hop, indie rock, pop, electro vein) and also give away tickets to Chicago area concerts (if you are in the midwest). Please tune in. I guaruntee a good time. And some possible nudity on the webcam, depending upon how drunk I am during broadcasting.

There was a girl named Jill who went to school at csw the school year 99-00. I have no idea if she went after that year. She was friends with Rayne, Andrea, Jake Sealine and I can't for the life of me remember her last name. Does anyone know if she graduated from CSW, or what her full name was?
