Amanda Palmer

September 5, 2009

I am having a wonderful afternoon stuck to my sofa catching up with the world outside, and generally ignoring requests to go to the swimming pool, the cinema, or make strange animals or do anything that involves movement.  I feel incredibly lucky to have stumbled onto Marti Abernathey’s blogpost  of a video by Amanda Taylor, who I haven’t heard of before.  Thus a good old session on the Youtube ensued.  It’s hard to choose one song to post on here to show you how great Amanda is, so you will have to go see for yourself, but I have played this one a few times and love it!

Amanda’s blog is excellent as well, and she urges you NOT to buy her new album, Who Killed Amanda Taylor, or the upcoming DV D through Amazon or other stores:

on that note: a word about BUYING THE DVD, if you are the sort that cares:

do not buy the DVD in a store.
do not order the DVD from amazon.
do not order the DVD from ANYWHERE online except links i post here/on twitter

i repeat: buy the DVD during the webcast next week or buy the DVD from my website when it goes up (we’ll let you know) OR buy the DVD from my merch table at shows. i’ll be selling it at at all of the upcoming shows, including london, and i will happily sign it for you.)

if you buy the DVD in a store or from amazon, the label will keep all of the money. even thought they have done nothing to promote it. they suck.

if you buy it from the webcast or at the merch booth or from my webstore, i will at least see some of the profit, since i will have ordered it from the label at cost.

and by the way, fuck them up the bum with a sand-papery dildo.

Update:  Amanda Palmer, Creep & an ukuelee – it can’t get much better than this 🙂

    I absolutely love what she’s doing. She’s a trailblazer, committed to her art and her fans.

    And that version of creep… so layered for something done with a uke and her voice only.
