Popular business phone directory published and distributed in Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and Texas, by Feist Publications, Inc., headquartered in Spearville, Kansas. Forced Southwestern Bell to actually start advertising their Yellow Pages directory, since it's no longer the only choice.

Their catchy radio ads ("I like Feist!") feature testimonials from small business owners saying (x > 80%) of their business comes through the Feist. Appeals to consumers with a comprehensive set of metro area maps in the directory, including a map page number and sector for each entry in the directory.

One of the more interesting Feist-related facts is the U.S. Supreme Court case in which they fought for, and won, the ability to copy listings from preexisting phone directories (almost always distributed by the local telco); the court decided that factual information cannot be copyrighted. The case has since been cited in several other major copyright cases. Feist Publications, Inc. v. Rural Tel. Serv. Co., 499 U.S. 340 (1991).

From 1999-2000, a commonly used tool for administering justice on Walker 4E at the University of Oklahoma. Other tools of justice included Thermodynamics texts, or for a milder justice, copies of Maxim or the Old Farmer's Almanac, at least one of which were usually at hand.

My memory

Take it slow, take it easy on me
Shed some light
Shed some light on me, please

An indie rock/folk/baroque pop, singer/songwriter, born February, 13, 1976, to artist parents in Nova Scotia, Canada, as Leslie Feist. These days known only as Feist.

At 35 Feist has explored the industry a good deal, she left her first band, Placebo, and played guitar for By Divine Right soon after, and has worked with artists Peaches and Chilly Gonzales, whom she was roommates with, at one point, in Toronto.
She is currently a part of an Indie Rock band, Broken Social Scene, that she rejoined in 2009 muting nay-sayers of their keeping in touch.

The recording of (my more favoured) album, The Reminder, was made into a documentary that was released on DVD in December 2010, and was directed by Canadian film maker Anthony Seck, titled ‘Look at What The Light Did Now’.

One, Two, three, four
tell me that you love me more

Feist has had some of her songs appear in film, with two of her tracks in Paris, je t’aime.
Her song, ‘1234’ (which appears in The Reminder), was adjusted, into an educational counting song for children for her appearance on an episode of Sesame Street.

Her discography is as follows:
