For Nat:

Humble Daisy
Form a chain to hold all battleships in check
Humble Daisy
Knit a ladder down to nature's sunken wreck
Ragged rug unbound
Tangle trip the lovers
Royal barge aground
Brighter than all of the others on the window sill
I'll sing about you if nobody else will
Humble Daisy
Cast the milk and coins of morning's cash about
Humble Daisy
I fell down to heaven as you picked me out
We'll look up together
Browsing through some old sky
Sipping in the weather
You've got me dizzy, the fly that climbed the sugar hill
I'll lay upon you 'till somebody else will
Humble Daisy
We'll look up together

Happy memories of Natalie: the November 2004 Wilco show in Portland. I always loved reading Natalie's show reviews, and this one was particularly special to me, as Trish and I had hung out with her around Portland that day (and the night before: raspberry beer and tater tots).

Carla Bozulich after that show, with Nat's tinfoil spider:

The next night, in San Jose, she gave similar spiders to each member of Wilco.


And because she was all about the equal opportunity:

And maybe my favorite picture of Natalie, with her RSBF:

If you are still wondering if this is real, all signs indicate that it is. :(


No sir - just thought I would post it.

Some of the dudes in Wilco also recieved tinfoil sculptures.

If I had a camera, I would post a photo of mine.

She dedicated a song to me on the radio once.

Natalie had a lovely singing voice, too. If you get a chance, check out the posted links in the sweetaddy thread. I'll post what I have of her singing in here, when I get home tonight.

Natalie, Trish and I sang Wilco karaoke with live piano accompaniment in Oakland one night. I laughed so hard that night. This is crazy.

She loved Paul Bettany and David Thewlis. And I'll so miss geeking out about various TV shows and books with her. I don't have a picture of my tinfoil devil handy, but I recently found him again and he's been living in a vase above my fireplace.

Every single one of us loved her. The last time she was here, she spent ages talking to my mom and my aunt about her midwifery studies, and then she told a slightly racy joke in front of the kids, which they thought was hilarious.

I'm sorry to say that I didn't spend enough time chatting with her recently. You never think that someone like her is just going to be gone one day. I assumed my world would always have Natalie in it, somewhere out there, whenever I needed her.

There was an indication that someone is taking care of the opposum. I think that was on the other board?

I told her I wanted to tell the kids about that, but I was forbidden to do so!

I'm afraid that this may be the only remnant of the Sentient Action Figures left in the archives. If anyone has any of the others, I'd love to see them again.

Oh my god, such sad news. I never knew her personally but have always enjoyed her posts on here. She seemed like an awesomely cool person. Peace to her now and to her family.

Gosh... please rest in peace knowing that you touched an awful lot of people, Nat, and that you'll be missed by even more.

Patti and I send the most heartfelt condolences to her family, and to those of you who got to know her personally... Kate, Rosie, Maudie, Yvon...
