a very intimate and demure photo of the wonderful bettie page, by peter basch. i really love this. she’s not flashing that trademark bettie page grin, and she looks…human.

Your TED talk on the art of asking was one of the most moving things I've watched. Most of us (I hope) want you to be happy with the art you're producing, and are just grateful to share it with you.

thank you. I appreciate you taking the time to write that :)

uhhhrrrr. do you mean that I shouldn’t be wandering around the world aimlessly writing songs on the ukulele and the piano when and how i feel compelled and doing TED talks and releasing music vaguely on the internet via various means to see what will and wont be sustainable and booking strange shows and playing in parks and peoples living rooms and hunkering down to write a fucking book and making ephemeral art all over the place and not really knowing what I’m doing? and instead I should put my old band back together?

if that’s what you mean, i understand you and the answer is HAHAHA! i want All The Things !!!!!

but also! in the wise words of whoever : Amanda Palmer Is Not Your Bitch. No Artist Is!

as long as i have something to communicate by art, and can connect through art, i can make whatever art wherever art however art I feel like and this, that, thus - this is the statement that keeps me wanting to make any art at all.

in summary, enjoy the art i have to give. it is what it Is.

sorry you caught me on a drunk night in maine. i love you.

I sang the Kim deal part on “first world problems”.

and JUST POSTED A BLOG ABOUT IT: http://amandapalmer.net/blog/20140719/

I’m reading “daring greatly” by brené brown right now.

I feel like the world would be an awesomer place if this book was required reading.

This week The Dig gave several shoutouts to the article they wrote about my performance at Cheap Seats months ago. I’m gonna perform at it tomorrow, it’ll probably be weird and maybe great.
