Subject: BS: Help on an Assignment Please!
From: LilyFestre
Date: 17 Nov 05 - 06:45 PM

I am working on a list of words that describe Pennsylvania, the land, people, sports, resources, and other things unique to the state. The purpose of this list is to share with a group of 30 college students who will then be challenged to write a new state song. The words list that I end up with will be read aloud to evoke memories of the state to encourage a more vividly detailed end product.

So....what do you think of when you think of Pennsylvania?

List as many as you can please!

Many thanks!

Michelle

You have to get the album "A Pennsylvania Homecoming" by Dr. Adrian Bianconi (Dr. B). There are over 20 songs on this 74 minute album that describe every geographical region Pennsylvania as well as all the major historical events that took place there. I belive that Dr. B's website is www.morninglacemusic.com If that is not correct check it out on Google. You can do your entire assignment from this one album.

Well, there ain't much I can say good about PA... It is the site of the second bloodiest battles of the Civil War... Onlu Antietam, jsut a few miles south beats it out...

It is home to the Philadelphia Eagles, whoes fans are the most redneckish football fans in the universe... These are the folks who threw snowballs at Santa Claus...

I mean, this one one danged redneck state... Glad that most of ytou all don't vote 'cause yer too busy huntin' deer 'er spittin' tabacco...

Okay, hey, you all do have Carlisle and the car shows....

An' some purdy danged mountains...

And Lake Erie...

And the Amish markets and shops in Lancaster...

Sniff...

And the....

Oh, I can't go on.... Why the heck is it that Gettysburg just hurts my heart???

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that the nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

That's why, Bobert.

Actually, this is Jenn--grew up in Pittsburgh.

Joe Magarac. Woods. Creeks. Runs. Presque Isle. Carnegie Institute and Carnegie libraries. Tipples. Slag Heaps--glowing at night. Iron City Beer and of course, Old Frothingslosh--the pale, stale ale with the foam on the bottom. Mr. Rogers, his neighborhood, and many neighbors. Art says, two seasons: winter and road construction. (and this is different from where you live, and we live, how?) Deer whistles. Pymatuning Dam, and canoes on the lake or on the Connequinessing Creek at Camp Carondawanna. The Tamburitzans, and tamburitza of all sizes. Pierogies. Lasagna. Gyros. Knowing when you got near home on the highway because of the names on the political signs--some with way too many vowels, others with way too many consonants.
Cook's Forest. Brady's Bend. Trilliums, bloodroot, violets and dog-tooth violets, spring beauties and April beauties and Solomon's seal, true and false, Indian pinks, and Mayflowers.

Thanks for the memories.

Actually, after two separate six month "assignments" in Philadelphia (and a half-dozen shorter trips), my strongest memories are probably the smell of Southside Philly, although you probably don't want that in the state song.
