neil-gaiman:

Messy. I worry that for the Scots, the YES vote has become essentially a gigantic Vote of No Confidence in Westminster and the Westminster Party system, which I share. As someone who has a house in Scotland, lives in Scotland when he can, and adopted his wife’s clan name as his middle name when we married, I hope that, in the case of a YES vote, life in Scotland continues to be as good or better than it is right now; and that in the case of a NO vote, the fractures between people of different opinions heal rapidly and that Westminster’s recent offers of concessions to Scotland are real.

I don’t get a vote, which is a good thing, as I’d probably be a Don’t Know until I got to the ballot box, and would then choose based on a hundred different reasons, including how much I disliked any particular politicians and whether the sun was signing that day and whether I was particularly missing Iain Banks.

a cross-media moment.

this took me aback and i thought i’d share it here on tumblr: i posted this photo of myself and the post-posting comment i made about it got over two thousand likes on facebook. my comments never get such a huge surge of likes. i spent all yesterday thinking about why.

why?

Seeing a real face is uplifting because I can’t stand looking at my own because all the faces I see are photoshopped.

this reminds me of a comment i heard at the lorde concert last night. there were three girls behind me, probably all about 19 or 20….which is to say: her age.

one of them shrieked “FUCK!!!! LORDE IS PERFECT!!! I FUCKING HATE MYSELF!!”

and i thought….why does one have to mean the other?

What do you think is the likelihood of crowdsourcing a bed for the night in Annandale-on-Hudson, and what is the best way to reach out to your fans to ask? Thanks. Love, as always, Sydney

the tumblr community isn’t quite the helping-hands hippie-commune that twitter is; the best thing to get a twitter account (if you don’t already have one) and post it there with my name (@amandapalmer) tagged in it. I’ll retweet you and someone usually volunteered. if I miss you, try again. I read my entire feed but sometimes it’s overloaded.

you’ve actually given me an idea and I might set up a board on the good ol’ forum (theshadowbox.net) for all the people traveling to this show. forums are still good for things like this. thanks for the idea.
