Dear Amanda Palmer,
Thank you for linking my youtube video to in your blog and email. I nearly wet myself. Despite the fact it looks like a godzilla film.
Love,
Allison
PS. This totally makes up for touching my boob. Which wasn't a big deal in the first place.

Despite the fact... or because of it?  ;)

The only thing that could have made that video any more awesome is if Ben was actually there.

Back on topic... Have y'all (oh, that's twice today!) seen the Strength Through Music video?

Easily one of the most powerful music videos I have ever seen.

Is anyone else trying to pre-order this today? I really want a copy signed by Amanda and Ben and the link hasn't been activated yet.

But Amanda and Melissa have tickets to see Blur in October. They're not talking, but I think they're still going?

Review on UK teletext: Planet Sound: Album reviews Page 824 (page 6)

Amanda Palmer/Who killed Amanda Palmer?

'With the Dresden Dolls' cabaret recently showing signs of failing to progress, here's Palmer's solo debut.
It gets her back on top, mixing the Dolls' hyper-stylised piano romps with her modern-day Brothers Grimm lyrics.
Ben Folds' production furthers Palmer's piano playing, and the likes of Guitar Hero see her move successfully into broader songwriting. A bold merging of baroque, goth and modern pop.'
8/10
And you can see the daisies in her footsteps

I pre-ordered the middle package yesterday and got the download link immediately. I'd avoided hearing any of it except for Astronaut until now. The whole album is incredible.

If I win the concert in my living room, you are all invited.

Yeah, it's an awesome album. I pre-ordered the middle package too and managed to score one signed by Ben and Amanda. Go me!

Fun little factoids for people who probably weren't paying attention. If you pre-order the middle or SUPER package it comes with an out-takes CD. Which Ben is on a few tracks apparently and Jared even is on Oasis.

I suggest using Internet Explorer if you're gonna go something that needs Musictoday downloads, at least Musictoday refused to load in my firefox.


I'm trying to unlock this all. It's weird. I'm missing a letter or something...


This is in the thank yous:
